Piper, Welcome!

How great that you were at Worlds when they won!

Do tell us everything about it?

Machine translations always make me :rofl:
To its credit, it does give you the gist of it.

Here's a less lol-worthy translation ;)

From a tweet I read, I think the prize is a Macbook Air this year. I'm translating the staff blog updates of the dance battle results over on my tumblr (http://ohheyjamiee.tumblr.com), but I'll post any Meryl updates here too. I hope she goes far in the competition :cool::rollin:

If you transvocalize "Buttle" and "battle" into Japanese from English, they're the same characters, バトル (ba-to-ru), as its pronunciation is conformed to Japanese phonotactics. So, if you put ジェフリーバトル (je-fu-rī ba-to-ru, Jeffrey Buttle) and ダンスバトル (da-n-su ba-to-ru, dance battle) thru a machine translator, it'll give you Jeffrey battle and dance battle. Though, I think Google is a little smarter and gives you Jeffrey Buttle. :lol:

Well, someone has to come up with a Buttle Battle tongue twister. Anyone?

LilJen, Thanks for the links to the pix!

Yes she did! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-a2UNrRdnDU#t=190s) :)

I loved that moment so much! and Tanith and Ben killed that number--they are such great club dancers. That was such a great ensemble number.

Re: the battle, I love Charlie, but yay, Meryl! I really want to see video footage. Thanks for sharing that info, Doris.

I discovered this montage today. Beautiful video but sad song.


lovely. thank you for sharing, shan.

A snippet of D/W's Die Fledermaus is shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWcsmjQEw5c&feature=player_detailpage#t=48s. You can also Meryl in the girls' Ave Maria number later on.

Thank you! I loved the show version of it in Toronto. I will miss this program so much, but I can't wait to see what they come up with for next season. Meryl&Charlie+polka=heaven:)

Thank you for the link, it's really very beautiful. ))

Hello, everyone. I've been reading this thread for a while - as a fan of Meryl and Charlie, I'm very grateful for all the links and information. :)

Here are my favourite montages with D\W. The first one is relatively old but I still love it.


Welcome, Piper! I hope you enjoy the forums! and thanks for the links to those montages:)

Bournekraatzfan, DORISPULASKI, thank you :)

I'm not sure what to tell exactly anout Worlds. :D. All I remember is overwhelming emotions. I told myself one thousand times that I'd love them no matter what.))
When they started skating I forgot about everything, because they were stunning. This FD was always my favourite because of its footwork and that day they were skating like never before and like it was their last dance at all. :) Somewhere in the middle of the dance I understood that I really didn't care what would happen - they were just the best for me.
I really thought that I had lost my voice after Miki's victory but I definitely was wrong)))

When I saw the scores I felt like Meryl - I couldn't believe in it until the last second. :D. And then my friend started shaking me like a doll and repeated about hundred times: "They won! They won!" :D
I was soo glad that I got a flag and did my best to support them, because to be honest, the audience was more V/M friendly)

After the end of the competitions, I was running around Megasport Palace (and this place is huge! :D) and hugging every familiar face I saw)))

Ready for the battle. :D

There is a slide-show of photos from The Ice tour up on the blogspot.



Near the bottom of this long review, we see Meryl beat Hanyu in the semis of the dance battle!

I hope she has/had good luck in the finals.

Did you guys see the latest video on the Shibs channel on youtube? The link is posted in the GSD thread. It seems like the cast of the Ice tour were having a great time :)
