Indulge me this gross speculation, but if anyone would understand it would be you!...so thirsty during the off season, latching onto any detail!!! Anyway, looking at the program notes for the upcoming ATS show, Patrick's sticking with Mannish Boy and his new Coldplay program. The fabulous Rachmoninoff appears to have been retired...which is odd, because it is fabulous. So...has it been converted to a competitive program? OH GOD the anticipation for the new season is overwhelming.
Hey, FSU Patrick's thread has just awoken... after Olympics and nearer to the start of competitions. :cheer:
jl22aries.. that sums up my and some of our thinking too. I remembered an insightful poster [can't remember name and too lazy to check archives] commented that 'a lot of work has been put in Rachmoninoff and thinks that this Ex will be converted into a competitive program'. Gee.. I can't wait to see what it will be like as a competitive program too.

I went to the ATSummer yeterday.
Chan looks very well and his movements are so fascinating and graceful.
(I think his skating is better than ever!)
Especially his Manish boy performence is very exciting. I love this program.LOL
Today ATS will be broadcast live. I can't wait to see his programs again soon.

Thanks Fscric!
The drought is finally ended!

Patrick looks well and certainly I ofund Mannish Boy had a more dancey feel to it likely influence of Kath Johnson.

Love Patrick in this Curtain Call video, he is growing into a very handsome young man with beautiful lines. Wish I were a few years younger.:lol:

But where's Elegy, is Patrick saving this program for competition now after testing it in several shows?
Sorry, Til Kingdom Come is not my cup of tea and I think it all starts from the music, I find this piece so uninspiring in spite of the title. If Coldplay is Canadian, my apology to Chan's Canadian fans.

Thanks everyone for the links to videos and photos.:)

:lol: First time seeing Patrick topless!

Yes, VarBar, I agree that Til Kingdom Come is not easy to skate to though I personally do like that song. Coldplay is British.:D

Attended Friday/Saturday's shows. Although I was quite disappointed with his program choices I enjoyed his performance anyway.
I still don't like Mannish Boy but it has definitely grown up; now he moves quite well with the music and most of the tacky movements were well polished.
In the case of Till kingdom come I actually liked it. You will never fully realize how wonderful his edges were in the program unless you watch it live, especially near the ice. It was like a demonstration of how to connect deep edgeworks effortlessly. Upbeat music would not work well in this case.
Having said that I agree with others that the music choice could be better. Classical instrumental music is the best option for Patrick in general IMO.

Didn't check fancams or broadcast yet so I'm not sure you all watched it, but Patrick was quite funny at Saturday's finale. While male skaters did a kicking move he suddenly lost his edge and slipped out of nowhere. He looked so embarrassed and kept saying something to Joubert, then Joannie, and everyone near him until the end of the finale, covering his face and scratching his head and even repeating the kicking.(too late boy, it's too late!) Other skaters were kind of :rofl:, like Yagudin laughing at him and Lambiel patting his butt.

These are my photos of Patrick from two day's shows, you can find other skaters' as well at the flickr account. BTW Joannie was FABULOUS! :swoon:

Joannie is a wonderful skater - I saw her at SOI this year - have loved her always.

But our boy Patrick - his edges are amazing live - totally agree.
I too found that Mannish boy has grown up quite a bit. It was a departure from his usual stuff and I think he needs to do different things to challenge himself.

All that skate looks like a wonderful show. At one time SOI used to brings skaters from all over the world especially Russia - now its mostly north america. What a pity.
