    I know you mean it as a compliment, but I'd rather Nathan not have Oda's jumps that often violate the rules and do not count ...

    There aren't enough superlatives for Chen. His expressiveness far surpasses his age, and his effortless flow across the ice is amazing. What a treat to watch.

    (Not wild about the touches of suspenderography, but that's a small nit.)
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    Thanks to marysy for uploading Adam Rippon's exhibition debut of his Carmen SP at the Michael Weiss Foundation show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dreCRwnDM2w

    Excerpt from the article about the show:
    With intensity and drama, Rippon skated his Carmen short program featuring his trademark arms-up triple Lutz. His goal, he said, is to change that triple Lutz to a quad come Skate America, Oct. 18-20 in Detroit.

    "I want to have the quad Lutz in both programs," Rippon said. "Of all the quads, that's the one I have had the most success with. I think it will set me apart."

    Would he ever do a quad Lutz with his arms up in the air?

    "No," he said with a laugh. "Unfortunately, I need to keep my arms close to my chest for that jump."

    Rippon said the move from Lake Arrowhead to Los Angeles, necessitated by Ice Castle International recently closing its doors, has been pretty smooth. He didn't own any furniture while in Lake Arrowhead, so moving was relatively easy. He continues to work with Rafael Arutunian, only now he skates at the East West Ice Palace operated by Michelle Kwan's family.

    Thanks for the link to Adam's SP. Seems like he is skating faster and I liked the long run on the edge.

    Sean Rabbitt made his season's debut this weekend, and a video of his new SP to the symphonic version of Queen's 'Who Wants to Live Forver' is posted on youtube. The content is watered down as Sean is recovering from injury, but the program looks fantastic for being so early in the process. I am very excited to see him perform this in Oakland at Coasts (assuming that all men in Pacific Coast Section are going...), and hopefully in Boston!

    Sean Rabbitt also posted his FS from the competition last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1Sa_lBraCg
    "Music Sing Sing Sing Pt. 2 from Fosse, choreography by Cindy Stuart. Score - 117.13, competition total 181.49"

    I heard that there won't be a Senior Men's competition at SWP Regionals next month, which means everyone registered will advance to Pacific Coast Sectionals in November.

    Great come back for Sean Rabbitt. Love to see people come back strong after an injury. Esp love his LP so upbeat.
    Am I seeing things ........but did Adam Rippon unknowingly photo bomb Sean in both his SP and LP opening of his videos?
    Was this comp live streamed? Any more videos or competitor's list?

    Adam won the competition. Sean was second. Phillip Warren was third, and Scott Dyer was fourth.

    Here are the scores for the Men's event of the Southern California Interclub Invitational Final this past weekend:

    1. Adam Rippon 240.96 (82.11 SP, 158.85 FS) - landed all 3 3A & 7 of 8 triples in FS (quad reportedly was not planned for this comp.)
    2. Sean Rabbitt 181.49 (64.36 SP, 117.13 FS)
    3. Philip Warren 177.76 (60.68 SP, 117 08 FS)
    4. Scott Dyer 148.92

    Tim Dolensky set new season high scores at the John Smith Memorial in North Carolina as well: 219.10 (75.21 SP, 143.89 FS). I heard he landed 3A in both his SP and FS for the first time in competition.

    Yes, he fell on his very last jump (3s), and it was an uncharacteristic weird fall. Very beautiful and powerful skating!!! You could tell that he is very well trained!
