New thread everyone...here we go with the off season :(

But we do still have WTT to look forward to!

Thanks for taking my suggestion on the thread title! The upside about the off season (after WTT) is that there should still be shows and plenty of music suggestions while we wait to hear what they will really be skating to.

And the blogspot always has cool stuff in the off season.

I loved their drink water commercial last year :lol:

Do we know of any shows (besides the 3 dates for CSOI) that they are doing this summer?

Daisuke has impeccable taste! Meryl is a force!!! :D

Davis/White usually perform in one or more of the Detroit Skating Club shows in June (Charlie is still a member of DSC)... I'm sure info will be posted once confirmed.

I'm so in love with Daisuke for his Meryl obsession :lol: Too cute!

Off season might be kind of sad, but to tell the truth (and as much as I LOVED all their dances this season, from SD to EX), I am more than ready for some new programs from them.

And let the WTT be the cherry on the pie for us ;)

Looking forward to the WTT. I still don't understand how this team format is going to pan out for Sochi with the team event being before the main event. It would kill all the excitement for the main event if that is truly the case.

Any guesses on what Meryl might wear for the SD this time around?

I love this thread title!! hahaha, Daisuke's meryl obsession's probably the cutest thing ever. I saw online somewhere that Dai was trying so hard hanging around Meryl at the Gala practice!

Too cute! Meryl is going to have to learn Japanese, to go with her French & Italian.

I was reading the Torvill and Dean Wikipedia entry and came across this:

Eleanor’s Dream 1987
Music: Eleanor Rigby – Paul McCartney
Known performance period 1987
Versions available on video/DVD or internet: None known

Little is known about this piece and it has never been released commercially and possibly never recorded. It was also created as one of their pieces for the 1987 Ice Capades Tour. In their autobiography Chris states that he actually passed on the dance for Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay to perform in 1988, stating that the dance was about the relationship between a boy and a girl with the boy breaking in upon the woman’s dreams

Excerpt taken from: Torvill and Dean: Romancing the Ice – Ice Cycles 1988

Both Dean and Torvill seem eager for responses to their new routines in the show and gratified with the verdict that everything is just great, with special accolades going to "Eleanor Rigby". It was their newest routine and it's a very interesting version of the song, undertaken with Paul McCartney, having little relation to the earlier Beatles recording. The version used was from the soundtrack of McCartney's film Give My Regards to Broad Street. Dean and Torvill hated the movie but really liked that version of the song.

"It's sort of our version of a dream sequence," says Dean, referring to their routine.
"And I'm Eleanor," Torvill says simply.
Torvill is the fragile title character, clad in muted white with pastel tones across the costume. He is a kind of dream lover to her, dressed in mostly black; he is both exciting and dangerous. She fears him, but she wants him too, and eventually her desire overcomes her fear. That is ultimately her undoing, as he twirls her round and round his body and she can do nothing but be manoeuvred at this will. It ends with her in a crucifix form across his back as he carries her off into the fog. She was right to fear him after all...

Duchesnay's Eleanor's Dream


I couldn't find the T&D version on youtube.

Apparently, Riazanova & Tkachenko will be training with Z&S. Their coach, Gorshkov, will be coming with them.

I'm not crazy about Gorshkov being there...but I can't entirely figure out why I find it so unsettling.

Excerpt from TAHbKA's translated interview with Alla Shekhovtsova: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3544013&postcount=1

As for the FD I preferred the American pair. They made the dance look easy, but there is a very hard work behind it. When starting analysing the complicated elements and how easily they were performed you realise what an awesome amount of work was done. Their `Fleidermouse' is a perfection of the ice dance.
