    They seem to be ticking off all the boxes with this SP. Next, I'd like to see them work at relaxing their neck and shoulder areas. They tend to be a bit tense.

    Thanks for posting - another great interview from TSL! I love how focused these two are on trying to improve their weaknesses and the discussion about Julie Marcotte choreographing to try to work around their height differential and lines not matching.

    Finally got around to watching some of the Quebec Summer Skate videos and lots to get excited about here. I think that D/R's short is fantastic and love that the piece was originally a dedication to Paul Wirtz. I do agree that their lack of matching does show up in this program and they seemed a little off sync in places, but that is nitpicking for August.

    Even though there is still a lot of work to do, I saw plenty of potential in Purich & Tran. I think she's come a long way in her basic skating since Canadians and hopefully the elements will come in time. I wasn't a huge fan of the program itself, so I'm hoping the free is a little more suited to the spark and energy she brings to the program.

    Love Seguin & Bilodeau and can't wait to see their development this season. Very excited about this team.

    I loved the music Eric composed for their SP - what a multi-talented person he is.

    If I recall correctly, they said their Long program was from "Alice in Wonderland", and was something different for them.

    I love Meagan and Eric's SP. just two minor area for improvement:
    1. Eric's hair, it makes him look taller and his head longer, both not to their advantage. The long hair was much better, the curls in the interview was so cute, handsome!

    2. The death spiral entry is very nicely designed, love it! but I'm afraid Meagan hasn't done its full justice yet. The extended leg should be closer to the blended skating leg, ideally touching it, and the shooting the duck/pipe position should be tighter, chest to leg. if she can do these two it would be really to die for.

    Dare I hope that this means that Bobak/Beharry might be back together?

    Anyone know who the other dark haired girl is? She looks familiar but I can't place her.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    I believe Beharry has quit.

    And also doubt Katie has any desire to return to the Wirtzes

    Both true. Katie has decided once again to leave skating. Matthew Penasse is a great guy/partner. Hoping he's able to find a fantastic partner and still compete this season. I feel very badly for him that she didn't see the season through.

    According to the registrations for the Georges-Ethier competition in Quebec, the junior team of Ami Koga/Francis Boudreau-Audet are skating for Japan.

    (Are we allowed to talk about JGP results outside of the kiss and cry? I hope so, but I'm not clear on the rules for this board).

    I thought Dylan Conway/Dustin Sherriff-Clayton had a very respectable debut on the JGP circuit this weekend. Their free skate was better than their short program IMO, and is on Youtube. (Their short program is also on Youtube). I could see them easily hitting 85 points by the end of the season, perhaps even 90 points if the throws and jumps become clean. Personally I think they did well enough to justify a second assignment.

    Bryce Davison is no longer listed as one of their coaches; does anyone have any news on whether he is still coaching?

    On the other hand, IMO the short program for the new team of Mary Orr/Pehlan Simpson was stronger than their long program. It is posted here. (Their long program is also on Youtube).
