Just leaving this here.
Don't Meryl and Charlie deserve a more creative and clever thread title? The last thread title was quite good. But when I see their Giselle SD, "Polka Connection" is not what comes to my mind.
I know I shouldn't complain though, if I can't come up with better suggestions.
BTW, I love, love, love Meryl and Charlie ... brilliance on ice personified!

I never post in this thread because I don't really care one way or another about ice dance. :
But, I have to say that this thread title cracks me up! Whoever came up with it must be a Big Bang Theory fan - the episode titles are very often of the form "The [noun] [word that ends in -tion]".
While I am ready for a new exhibition , I do love the way D/W skate in "Someone Like You": it's elegant and refined but still plenty powerful. Like Die Fledermaus. Since Marina is talking about Olympic FDs, I hope they might incorporate some skating like that in their Olympic FD.
There is something about them performing the end of Notre Dame, under the exhibition lights, that is especially beautiful and moving. Maybe the costumes or the renewed speed?
Wow, you've really written a lot.
Finally, I'm home, finally I've caught up with you.
About connection, I have only one thing to say - I have no idea how anyone can think it. After FD they were at the monitors in the hall in HD quality, and I was mesmerized by their expressions. They were skating as one, they were with the music, and they were in it together.
And btw, finally, they convinced me - I may not be a fan of Notre Dame, but now I don't care. They've just shown that they can make any dance brilliant.
Thanks for that report. Always appreciated!!! What were your thoughts on the SD?
I say if they are to do something big, let them do it in the Olympic season. For this season, ND is a perfect choice and I love them for this choice.
The SD is pure brilliance, I think we all agree. It's perfection.
Piper, so happy for you and so jealous! Give us some more specifics about the GPF, would you?
Their official website has a new look
Their website is looking better!
I hadn't seen this video in their Classroom Champions series on Goal Setting:
Or this one on Inspiration:
And this brand new one on your Community, filmed after NHK
I was going through the Youtube channel and noticed that I hadn't seen this one before. The topic is Community.
I looked around on YouTube to see if they had any of the classroom videos from the kids Meryl and Charlie are mentoring. This was a cute one from one of their classes:
So I'm looking at my facebook and USFS had posted a picture of Meryl and Charlie with their medals and flowers. One comment was "does she have a tattoo on her arm? Is that acceptable in skating now, I haven't gotten over changing from 6.0"..blah, blah...a second poster told her it was just a shadow on her arm from Charlie's flowers!
That was so funny. The shadow did look like a tattoo--but it was on her elbow. Pearls were clutched.
One of the backstage photos is a picture of Meryl & Charlie with their Die Fledermaus bears from the FSO forum fans' award for best dance program of the year (Tessa & Scott won best foreign dancers and also got bears.
I love their SD. But the lift still doesn't look easy for them, I was so afraid they'd have deduction again...Luckily, I was wrong.
I hope, I will. But my mind is a complete mess now - I've just had one of the happiest and definitely the craziest five days in my life...
Meryl' twitter has a new look, too)
And I thought of "The Rainbow Connection" .. cuz apparently I'm still a Kermit fan after all these years.
So am I. Kermit is awesome
She has the Japanese fan's cartoon of them in their Giselle costumes!
I just watched the CBC vid of M&C's FD and I have to say that even though Kurt and Tracy have to be supportive of V/M (and rightly so as Canadian commentators), I thought they were appreciative of their FD. Tracy was rather enthusiastic and I had to laugh at Kurt saying that he forgets about the "story" of Quasimodo and Esmerelda and just enjoys the program because he doesn't think M&C are the "right couple" for the story and that "Charlie isn't ugly enough"! One thing was nice...they didn't talk until the program was over.
Where did you watch that? The cbc player doesn't have any commentary added when I view.
It was from fsvids, Jessie.
Oh I see, it's an exclusive membership.
I logged on to fsvids.net but couldn't find any 2012 Grand Prix event videos. By the way, I don't believe there is any charge to register if anyone is interested. They do have an outstanding archive of videos catalogued by year, event, discipline and skater.
You have to upload so many download links in order to access the restricted section, which is the current season.
Just posted these fun pics in the Skating & Gymnastics Disson show thread in GSD:
Looks like they're having fun!
I dont know if anybody has posted this yet, but this site http://dolceflute.gallery.ru/watch?a=PG2-jq1D has some pictures of Marlie from GPF gala pratice. I'm searching for the video. if i find it I'll post that
Wow, it's been a while since I last heard/saw someone call them "Marlie" it's so cute.
When I first discovered FSU the D/W thread was named "Gnarly Marlie and the Silver Stars" or sth like that and immediately I knew it was gonna be a good place to be in seriously, whoever came up with that title, is my hero.
