I just found out he choreographed a new exhibition number for Jason Brown -- "Fly me to the Moon" -- that Jason performed in a show in Jackson, Wyoming this past weekend. Hope we'll get to see this sometime!
"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
Very interesting. I wonder what his goal is ... it seems he would be competing against his own... muse? It is always great to see him and I'm sure fans would give him a warm welcome.
OMG that would be awesome!

@MWskatecast: "Rohene's recording was perfect for 1st half, then got garbled. Rerecording next week when he's here for PSA. #techprobs"

Aw, shucks that the interview already happened, but I always wondered how someone with his talent but would have done if he had come from a more well-to-do background and had more training time.
I have a feeling he'd be humble about it, but I wonder how far he feels he would have progressed if money wasn't an issue and if he could afford the same amount of training time and level of coaching as the top skaters
^ Since he and are getting together again in two weeks to re-record the last half, I'll ask him.
In 64 interviews, its the first time I've had the recordings go haywire. The first half literally was perfect, and then the last half of his track just went bonkers . . . echos, distortion, etc. I interviewed Phil Hersh a few weeks later with the same equipment and all was fine, go figure!
ETA: IMO, Ward was very fortunate to have the support of his long-time coach in Minneapolis, Page Lipe, and I would like to hear how he would describe their relationship over the course of his competitive career, looking back now.
