I interpreted it as "I can't believe my luck -- if this happened to someone else, I'd be jealous."

We don't need to see ANOTHER waltz from them.

Agreed. :scream: Damn you TT.

:cheer: for happy Riazanova

i cant quite figure what she means by 'envying herself'.. unless she thinks of herself as two separate persons..


One of the best lines from Spinal Tap: "People envy us. I envy us."

This is the music that I think Riazanova and Tkachenko are using. I don't think I can listen to four minutes of this every competition they enter...

I'm kind of hoping that Tarasova/R+T will be actually using the Godfather Mazurka (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_KLu6Z-B48)rather than the Waltz...

You got me thinking... could any portions of the Godfather soundtrack be used for a polka and then combined with the waltz create a nice SD? I hate it when dancers use music they could have used for the SD/OD in an FD. I bet R&T will be using the slowest possible version of the main theme, wearing all black, and having another funeral type program.

Fwiw, here's the Tarantella (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb-z1ZG7q3o) from the City of Prague Philharmonic performance of Godfather 1 (that's also where the Mazurka posted above came from).

Hey the Russians will turn anything into a funeral march. Remember the Rumba Latin SD last season? Six Russian dancers, six all black outfits. (Although Bobrova had some silver...)

I love the whole Godfather soundtrack, so sue me. I think that waltz (if that is what they're skating to) would be wonderful for R/T, but I hope there would be at least one other music cut in there, as the mood and melodic theme of that isn't enough for a full FD.

Damn you Tarasova! :mitchell:

Riazanova sounds really happy. Do you think they might jump ship and move to the US permanently? Especially given Igor doesn't have that many teams yet.

It's sounding that way to me, but I'm thinking there might be some potential for Gorshkov and Shpilband to team up and they are waiting to see if that happens. I wonder if Gorshkov would move his group to the US. I'm only speculating because it's unusual for a team's coach to follow them to summer training with another group, AFAIK.

seems that this summer everyone is passing out with ecstasy while working with Spilband :-D

I immediately thought of This is Spinal Tap.

Derek Smalls: We're lucky.
David St. Hubbins: Yeah.
Derek Smalls: I mean, people should be envying us, you know.
David St. Hubbins: I envy us.
Derek Smalls: Yeah.
David St. Hubbins: I do.
Derek Smalls: Me too.

I think so, and that would be be a very smart choice! Bye-bye :TT1:
