Well we haven't seen it since B/K ( or F-P/M I think) ...
Adams SP is not good, however his lp is fantastic.
Abbott is bringing back his program from two years ago???? No! I was hoping he would go for something new and memorable. Exogenesis was good, but he already did all he could with that program (US Nationals).
Evan better update his packaging (costume, hair, color) or that Roxane program is not going to do him any favors. He needs to learn from what happened to Johnny.
Apart from Adam's long program the rest sound underwhelming. Not good for an Olympic year. The ideal is to have memorable and signature programs.
What's this I hear about Ross and Freddy Krueger? this might just be the lp of the year.
It was mentioned earlier in this thread that Rippon has a new SP choreographed by Cindy Stuart that hasn't been announced yet (he skated last season's SP at Gardena Spring Trophy in April).
Videos of the new short programs of Donlan/Speroff, Baga/Toth and Kayne/O'Shea are posted in the U.S. Pairs thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3936085
Donlan/Speroff's SP music is "Meditation from Thais" by Jules Massenet, choreographed by Sheryl Franks.
Funny, the Krueger reference reminds me of the Friday the 13th-like drama that seemed to be gripping Chan fans early last season. Also, if Ross will be skating to music/ theme in that scary thriller vein, I wonder whether Ross might have been inspired by Alex Johnson using A Nightmare on Elm Street mixed with a waltz for his lp on the suggestion of Tom Dickson. There might indeed be some connection if in fact Dickson is going to be choreographing Ross's lp again this season.

dots may have mixed up the names in referring to this part in the first post of this thread?
Alex Johnson mentioned near the end of his TSL podcast interview (April 7) that he and Tom Dickson are working on ... a new free skate that he describes as "parts of it are Nightmare on Elm Street, mixed with a waltz... I'm not so sold on it yet... it's kind of a dark piece... totally different than anything I've ever done before."

^^ Okay, that would explain it then because Alex's unusual choice of lp music immediately came to mind when I read dot's post referencing Freddy Krueger.
^^ Yeah well, I just think it all proves that Jason can skate to practically anything! He's that talented and he has great range and musicality. ITA, he should update his sp costume when bringing back the same program. Maybe Rohene will give the sp some new moves as well.

Judging by Alex's last season costume, he and his coach/ choreographer, Tom Dickson, are not going to go too overboard. They'll likely continue allowing the skating and choreo to take the lead.
It'd be freakin' fantastic to see Alex pull up to a podium position at Nats!
^^ Might scare the judges into giving Chan-like levels and GOEs.
I stand corrected. It's Alexander, not Ross, who's skating to Elm Street.
I hope he uses the Krueger Lullaby.
"1...2... Freddy is coming for you...."
I love this thread but the one thing that I am anticipating more than the music and the moves: Costumes!
