    Love the video TanithandBenFan. Also love the phrase at the end "Earn your Stripes."
    "Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him."

    Good choice for them. Who else skated to Scherezade(can't spell it) that is a pair team or dance team. Can't remember. It was a while ago.

    Marina gets a lot of flack as a choreographer/coach(personally I think she is amazing) But I have to take my hat off to her if she has the two top teams that are vying for gold in a Russian composer dance-off.
    Brilliant. I can't wait to see what these teams are going to bring.
    One team is picking familiar music that is perfect for them with the drama element of its story
    And one team is picking less familiar music with sweeping waltzes from a ballet that also seems perfect for them.

    It is going to suck to be a judge.

    I can agree with all of the above.

    I am really happy with Scheherazade, so I hope that hint is what we think. I'm almost more curious about the SD.

    OT: Can anyone tell what book Meryl is holding in this pic?
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Charlie's summer cut is slowly cocooning into the season's curly butterfly masterpiece.

    This truly means autumn is on the horizon.

    I will kick and scream and throw a tantrum like a little girl if they really did choose Schez. Especially for THIS season.

    Hm..took another look at Charlie's tweet. Sesame street was filmed in New York City IRCC. That could be a clue in itself.

    We're going to be sitting here watching every episode of Sesame Street trying to pick things out.

    I'm going to assume this is their FD music.

    Before Charlie's tweet, where did the Scheherezade hint actually come from? I must have missed something.

    I think Scheherazade could work well for Davis and White as it does have power and drama as well as slower moments. However, because it is so overused, I wish they were skating to something else. I'm sure I'll enjoy their program regardless of what they are skating to since I love their skating so much. I would have loved for them to skate to something like Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D, Movements 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgrUb2IS9sI and 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77DgEqwRnrA, but I think if their choice is Scheherazade, then I'll learn to love it.

    AFAIR, didn't the hint come from Doppio Axel, the Italian website?

    Yeah, on their FB page, I think.

    I'm sort of impressed that, when you guys have a dream about Meryl and Charlie, they are actually skating (even if badly). Whenever I dream about public figures, they are always doing something weird. If I dreamed about Meryl and Charlie, they'd probably be learning baton twirling or shopping for cheese or something.

    Glimpse of M&C at dinner at Champs Camp. I love when Meryl rocks the classic hair bun.
