Gushing Alert:
One of YouTube's "recommendation" to me tonight was a clip from the movie Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Well, you know what *that* put me in the mood to look up and watch instead of the film.

Oh my. IIRC that FD was what made me a FAN. :swoon: :swoon: :swoon: I've liked a lot of dance teams in my time, but above all for me there was T & D and now is V & M. When I'm having a bad day, I try to remind myself of some of the beautiful things in life. And skaters like V/M are on the list of Great Things. :fragile:

BTW re: the "shippy" chat - I may have said this before, but back in the day I too was amazed that T & D were never involved romantically. But seeing how OTT other fans can be (like that other board) always reminds me to try and control myself. :lol: [And the nuttiness is spread around - I've been reading Joannie's FB page and a few posters there have made me go :eek: :scream: too.]

hahaha! i was also beginning to think v/m are the second coming t/d, fan speculation of their off-ice relationship at least. ;)

^^Me too! I totally love that FD. In fact, I completely ignored ice dance until I happened upon their 2008 world's FD. I had followed Canadians that year, but mostly watched Men's (being a Jeff Buttle fan lol). I remember seeing a headline along the lines of "Virtue and Moir lead after Original Dance" and thinking... "whatever, it's ice dance." After world's, I was watching a video, probably of Jeff Buttle, when youtube recommended V/M's FD. I decided I'd watch it (I was procrastinating) and was completely blown away. I know it may not be the most difficult program and it might bore some people, but it's one of my favourite things.

I love UoC too. I think it's really interesting to see the different kinds of love portrayed by V/M in UoC and the Mahler piece. UoC is about looking back at young love cut short. The Mahler piece is about young love looking forward to the future. They really are nice bookends.

Another Worlds speculation - is it going to be the ballerina/hockey guy for the Exhibition again? (I'm already tired of it).

You know I really liked their "Dare You to Move" exhibition from 08 Worlds. :)

Or this one. I like this one, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=vYdEWlvU0g4&feature=related

Better than Jack & Diane! J&D is by far the worst ex V&M have ever had.

I actually like Jack & Diane ... :slinkaway. I like it better than Everybody Dance Now lol. :lol:

I doubt they'll have a new Ex for worlds but I"m sure we'll see new ones for CSOI! I don't mind the pink dress either but I still think white would look aesthetically better.

Ehs I think all of us here are first and foremost FS fans (like hello, this is FSU :lol:). Above all, we like V/M for their skating (but of course we do love them as people too). I generally try not to ship real-life couples (it just feels really odd) but I guess other people are entitled to do as they will, as long as it isn't malicious. I have long adopted a "Que Sera Sera" attitude :D.

Re-watching UoC, I'm amazed they skated as well as that considering Tessa was in pain. Dance couples like them who have such wonderful chemistry, artistry and technical skills are a gem.

Much as I adore UoC, my favourite FD of theirs is a toss up between Valse Triste and Mahler. VT just has this magical, sublime quality that never fails to make me go :swoon:. It's far less technically demanding but I could watch it all day. They're so very musical and the choreography is just lovely (I love how gentle they are going in and out of lifts).

It was also the first time I realized Ice Dance isn't necessarily OTT, trashy and dramatik, often with horrible costumes to boot. :lol: (I'm a relatively new fan circa 2006; don't hate! :P)

Wow.........thanks for posting that.....I don't know where I was but don't think I've ever seen that ex..................it was smokin'. Much better than J&D. I don't know why they never used it again.

Techno My Fair Lady??? Gross! I had to turn it off after the first two lines of the song. :scream:

Sorry, but when you combine one of my favorite things in the world with one of my least favorite, it makes me ill. :slinkaway

:lol: I don't think that really qualifies as "techno", so I'm guessing you're a huge fan of My Fair Lady?

I don't know about techno - I know I heard this same rendition on one of my daughter's jazz CD's. She's really into jazz but I'm not so much, so I can't give any details other than I recognized it because of V/M's exhibition.

Wowza there's been a lot of public appearances away from their training grounds.
