With choreography and skating like that, who needs jumps? :swoon:

Oh yes, I did see this on the tv broadcast Sunday (but was annoyed they didn't show Jeremy's second number in the white Mendel outfit).

Definitely great music, skated to magnificently by the very fashionable-looking Jeremy wearing a Betsey Johnson creation.

BTW, below is a Dai clip, but check out 1:98 - 2:26 ... To me, this season, these are the guys. Keep it going Dai and Jeremy!

On NBC this weekend, Peter Carruthers and Terry Gannon called Daisuke's free skate the best skate of the season so far...I don't think they meant it was Daisuke's best skate, but the best long program from all the men this season...what do you guys think? I personally love Jeremy's much much more.

I can't compare Jeremy with anyone else. Neither can I compare Dai with anyone else. They have individual strengths and (I suppose) weaknesses. It's times like these I am really pleased that I don't have to decide between them!

Indeed:) Perhaps we could take two most artistically interesting male skaters competing today and have them arm-wrestle? After a certain point, brilliant is brilliant. Some would prefer one thing, some another.

Not arm wrestling, dinakt!! Duets, trios, quartets, you name it! Put them all together in a show of their own, self choreographed, with really, really good music. (Or, as I've told some of the PCF clubbers before, hire them all--and any other retired artistic skaters--for my own modern dance company when they retire and I am suddenly filthy rich.)

Thanks for the link Sylvia, and Kwanette!

Awwww, Jeremy! That is one fun program, and he looked so sharp in his J Mendel. Looks like Jeremy was attempting to do most of the jumps from his competitive routine which isn't easy on that smaller sized rink. No matter -- I loved it -- love watching Jere-amazin! He's human indeed, and very special too. :)

I agree, and that's one thing I thought while watching it.
I'm almost unable to say what jumps he landed or not after watching his performances this season (LP and Exhibition). That's how I love figure skating. :)

(Or, as I've told some of the PCF clubbers before, hire them all--and any other retired artistic skaters--for my own modern dance company when they retire and I am suddenly filthy rich.)Daisuke once told in an interview that he doesn't have the necessary artistic vision to choreograph for himself, although he can recognize good choreography when he sees it (a very free retelling of his already translated words, but that was the gist of it). Probably that has changed, though. As for the dance company - a nice idea :D, but I have to say that not all skaters are very good dancers (even the most artistic ones).

Though I am pretty sure Jeremy ( a big fan of contemporary Dance) and Stephane ( lots of party videos and photos serve as a great testament) are; Jonathan Cassar, for example, studies Dance ( possibly a Dance Major?), and I cannot imagine Takahashi not being able to bring the same tiger-like grace to the floor as he does to the ice:hat1: I'd rather see them all skating, though.

Yes, but party dancing is one thing, and modern dance is another. Ice dancers should be the best dancers among all figure skaters also on the floor, should they not? But I am currently watching a Russian dance show called 'Bolero', where figure skaters (including ice dancers Kostomarov, Staviski, Shabalin, Vanagas and Chernishev) are dancing with russian prima ballerinas (modern dance, sometimes a little balletic, but not real ballet). Well, I have to say, at the moment they look quite weak next to those ballerinas - not very bad, but still...

I was thinking of Matt Savoie when I saw Jeremy's long program last week. Both because of the transitions and because of the subtlety and restraint. I always thought that Matt did not get enough credit for his transitions, choregoraphy, and difficulty. There were times when a certain skater beloved by judges would do little besides crossovers between elements would get higher transition and choreography scores than Matt would, and it drove me crazy. I have sometimes thought that Jeremy similarly did not get enough credit, so I was happy to see that he did get a lot of credit for his long program last week.



My NBC station apparently is boycotting skating this year, so if anyone has a link to a particularly good video, it would be greatly appreciated.

I was also thinking of Matt while watching Jeremy skate. Matt - particularly the last couple of seasons - had beautiful programs loaded with difficulty - which I just loved. He took me on the journey with him. I find Jeremy doing the same. I find Daisuke to be wonderful, but he is more outward - more of a showman - so it is just a strikes me a little different. But, saying that (and not very well) I do love both Jeremy and Dai's programs this year.

Congratulations to Jeremy for his successful skate so far :). I am really glad for him. I read and opinion somewhere that Brezina deserved higher component marks than Abbott. I can't agree with that at all. Brezina's SP and it's choreography is good, but he's not a performer and interpreter like Abbott, and I think that his ss are also not quite on par with Jeremy's.

I truly hope that Abbott can keep this up in his FS. True, it will be difficult to do because of Hanya's superior technical content (and, of course, Brezina and even Fernandez are still contenders), but not impossible if he skates clean. So I'll keep my fingers crossed for Jeremy.
