    I'd love if In the garden of souls comes back in the olympic season! So far I've been watching Dai's new sp like three times just to be sure, and still don't like it and don't get it. This is really generic coming from Dai

    BUT, the biggest YAY for the quad and 3A tried in that outing!

    I agree with you guys. This Rockabilly program is Daisuke’s worst SP in the recent 5 seasons. In the Garden of Souls, Eye, Mambo, and Cyber Swan are all better than this new program. There’s nothing origninal in the new SP. It imitates Mambo and Eye but not as sexy and original as those two.

    Poor Dai, he deserves something better than this generic program. He should go back to better choreographers such as Miyamoto, Wilson, and Camerlengo in the Olympic season. Btw, I hope Bourne will come up with something more creative for the LP.

    I like it, but I'm with you, I guess I was expecting something a little more exciting based on last year's program. I enjoy the music quite a bit, though. The performance was a little sloppy, so I'm hoping with some time, it will have more impact.

    Goodness - I haven't heard "The Stroll" for about 45 years. Can't say I ever missed it

    I loved Dai's new short program.

    for me, there's something off with the concept as well..maybe in 2012, doing Elvis the Pelvis doesn't exactly scream avantgarde..

    I thought Takahashi looked great. I think he can skate to anything and look great.

    D/W or USFSA are having a second thought about their FD, AGAIN. Two seasons in a row. I'm not sure if it's a good sign or not.

    Why are you saying that? We don't even know if that's true. Probaly they're delaying the music announcement for completely different reasons. In the 2008/2009 season people got to know about their FD only at Skate America (or shortly before it), and that wasn't because they had changed the program (apparently they hadn't). As for that Sinatra rumour - well, probably it was just a rumour indeed. That means nothing. Anyway, we will find out at some point. No need to make such declarations in the official programs thread until then.

    I hope this is the case. I'd like to see them do something a little more dramatic this year than a Sinatra medley. Sinatra of course can be a little darker (It Was A Very Good Year/One for my Baby), but usually a Sinatra medley would indicate something more swing and bouncy.

    The Sinatra bit was taken out before Champs Camp, fwiw. It was posted either in the previous thread, or the D/W uber thread in the trashcan.

    IIRC, Sinatra Medley had been officially listed in D/W's IN profile page for a while.

    The Sinatra medley was removed from D&W's ice network profile well before champs camp. And even before that we had information on FSU that, while they had considered using the Sinatra Medley, it was an idea that they had discarded and that their FD was something else.
