When you guys mentioned the PF lift I thought it was the combo one, which I love, but this one I loved too. I am glad Tessa can still do it.

Me too. When I saw it in practice this morning I was really surprised, knowing she's had trouble with the split position.

The new ex looks rough and they need a little more speed, but it's fun and cute and they enjoy performing it. Scott does goof around a lot, but they made sure to repeat all the steps several times this morning. I'm sure they'll get to practice it more after the World Team Trophy. Also, the dress looks so much better live, the TV image really doesn't do it justice. It's the sparkliest thing I've seen in my life:), and yet not tacky in the least. It looks really good on Tessa.

Love the new thread title, very appropriate for us all :)

The new exhibition was fun and yeah I agree with the majority that its very rough around the edges but I'm sure once they're more comfortable with it, it will look great. They had fun and I couldn't help smiling goofily along with it and laughing by the end because of the massive grins they had on their faces. They're happiness was infectious :)

I think Tessa is one elegant lady and even the sparkly dress is in perfect taste.

I started laughing after the slow portion, when it changed back to faster tempo and they started doing the disco moves. I thought Scott wouldn't know the steps. :lol: And I really LOL-ed at the hip bump portion. Was there a blooper at around 02:43? I could hear someone laughing in the background. Skating purists probably will not be happy with ice coverage and stationary dancing, but yea, that gala number really looks fun with lots of potential. You almost think they forgot they are on ice wearing blades but actually in a disco house somewhere. :D Somebody contact Nigel Lithgoe and request these two do a guest number in SYTYCD Canada. Any dance will do.

As for the dress, well the disco era is not exactly known for great fashion taste so...:lol: Perhaps pants will be better, I don't know.

ETA: Anyone else suddenly in the mood to watch some more disco because of that gala? Here's a link to a SYTYCD Disco collection (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lf5L7hAPpY4). This dance sure looks fun but exhausting.

When it comes to Marvin Gaye songs, I was hoping they'd have gone more along the lines of "Got To Give It Up."

In general, it looks like while I'd like them to do programs to songs like "Son of a Preacher Man," they more enjoy programs set to songs like "That's What Friends Are For."

I'd love for someone to do "Heard it through the Grapevine"........now that's Motown :) and a great beat.

The universe needs them to skate to Sigur Ros' "Hoppipolla"

Oh yes! Or some Panda Bear. *dreams*

Did anyone catch the Tracy Wilson interview? I couldn't :(

ETA: Someone else mentioned elsewhere that they thought V-M had reached their peak and could not improve any more. I find this interesting because it is something I read on Twitter a lot as well. Many even question if V-M have changed or improved at all since their senior debut, which I find...puzzling. Being a huge fan of the technical aspects of the sport, I wish we could do an element-by-element comparison between Valse Triste and Funny Face, with gifs and all. I want to do it, but I need help as I am not at all versed in gif-making and all that.

watched the interview...

1. when asked about training with d/w after gpf, tessa said there was tension. there is always tension as the season moves on. you can feel it. but she enjoys it. it's motivating. keeps them on their toes. scott said the times you expect him and charlie to be at each other's throats is exactly the time their friendship flourishes

2. when asked what mark they want to leave on the sport, tessa said... to be remembered as great people, not just great skaters. they look forward to their coaches' vision of the next few seasons, though they have some ideas of their own.

3. scott was asked about the gpf again. he said they concentrated too much on marks and placement.

4. when asked about the bubble, it starts when they leave the hotel. they keep it light, but it's a comforting bubble to be in.

I really love these jewel-toned colours on Tessa. Don't know that I've ever seen her in a teal/aqua blue before. I'd love to see that colour worn in a future program.

Wow. I... That's not just the craziest pic of V/M I've ever seen, but one of the more hilarious ones I've eve seen of skating.

Rather than calling it puzzling, I'd call it ridiculous.

Have reached their peak, and can't improve? Why would anyone think so? And "haven't improved since their senior debut" ? Absurd.

Don't let the inevitable nastiness (that the next two years will bring) get to you. ;)
