    Lots of potential here. I totally agree.

    I must say I'm surprised Oda is continuing. He's a dad now, and he must know his chances of making the World team next season or the Olympic team in 2014 are very slim indeed.

    Well Kozuka hasn't been consistent at all this past season. If Oda keeps his jumps going, he still has a legit shot. Although the JPN Fed probably prefers a golden team of Takahashi, Kozuka and Hanyu. At least they are all world medallist.

    Oda's son* was born in October 2010, I think - I think it's safe to say by now that he's not going to quit because he has a family. As Marco wrote earlier, Kozuka hasn't exactly done himself any favors in the past season, and Oda still has a shot if he skates well and takes remedial math.

    * Oda recently posted a picture of himself with his son on Twitter - so cute!

    A bit late but re Joubert's choice of music, I believe some of his fans have been after him to skate to the Inception soundtrack pretty much since the movie came out. It does seem like a very good fit for his style.

    Oda's choices are interesting; and I believe they suit his style.
    I wish him a successful season.

    I know Kozuka had a rough season, I just sort of don't see the Japanese Fed leaving someone who won a world silver medal and scored 180+ for a FS off the World team in favor of a skater who has never medaled at Worlds, has a PB FS score of (only - comparably) 163+, and has shot himself in the foot time and again with his inability to correctly count combination jumps. And I think even if Takahashi and Hanyu were to have rough seasons and Oda beat them at Nationals, they'd still be on the World team regardless. Maybe not though.

    Source is his official site and an article link I posted in the US Men's thread that has additional details and quotes:
    http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3586495&postcount=77
    Miner is working with new choreographers this season - Tom Dickson (FS) and Catarina Lindgren (SP).

    YAY! Love their work. I am very interested to see what they do with Miner's style. Korngold is an interesting choice.

    For me, this is the most annoyingly overused piece of music used in skating.

    Especially given that appalling, cheestastic arrangements of it are usually used.

    Understandable. I do like Mrvica's arrangement, IMO it's slightly more tolerable :D

    But, Ziggy, Miner plans to "portray the character of an illusionist" (according to the post/article I linked) - at least that's a creative interpretation of his SP music. ;)

    Re-posting from the Pre-season OES/OAS News thread in GSD:
    Looks like Denis Ten is working with Lori Nichol again.

    Someone should skate to "Only Happy When It Rains" and "Stupid Girl".

    Thanks, Sylvia for the quote!
    I hope he gets Lady Gaga's designer to make his costume as well.
