    ^^I second that. I have a full-time job and it's tough to update my blog every week. I've managed to stay on top of it this season but when things get busy it's really easy to fall behind. So when other things come up, the blog has to take a backseat.

    It takes me a few hours each week and I only cover the ladies; TSL covers all four disciplines! I can't imagine how much time it must take for them to produce a show every week considering they have to coordinate with each other (they live in different cities) and their technical guy to get everything filmed, edited and ready to post...and all that on top of their day jobs and the rest of their lives.

    I tweeted them after NHK asking about their review and they said they'd do a GP season wrap up after COR this week. I'm looking forward to it.

    The new short program will probably be Carmen choreo by Lori Nichol.

    As long as it is not "Sing, Sing, Sing". I can even take Carmen rather than that.

    I think Gold is being pushed too far too fast. It is only her second year as a senior and the amount of hype she gets is that of an Olympic gold medal favorite. She looks hyper on the ice which is probably nerves and adrenaline. It is hard to stay calm when everyone has such high expectations of your performance.

    So many junior ladies get hyped as the next skating legend and then when they are less than perfect at the senior level they are dismissed as failures. Skating is a mental game as well as physical and it doesn't help these ladies' development to be uber-hyped and then abandoned when they don't live up to their PR.

    He's still going?

    In any case, I'd just advise him to move on.

    The violin version is problematic for ice rinks- violins in general often sound screechy if the sound system is not of high quality, and in Gracie's version I felt that the "early jazz" quality was lost. The SP started to grow on me as the year progressed, but I cannot say I bemoan Gracie's change. Would love to know what the new music is. Hopefully not TOO conventional.
    Thanks! I still don't like this music, but this version sounds so much less offensive than the one Gracie used. Good point on the voilin sounds perhaps not translating well to ice arenas. When I first saw her SP I had to pause and pull up a youtube video to test the sound b/c I thought the speakers on my laptop had gone kaput ...

    Maybe they will just choose new music and only make slight tweaks from her current program (just enough to match the new piece instead of a complete overhaul)? In any case, hope it works out for her. My ears, however, are pretty grateful for this change

    Is TSL the only place we have heard about this? Are we sure it is true?
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    It's an Olympic season and it's Frank Carroll. Scheherazade. It's a requirement since Linda that all his skaters use that old war horse.

    Don't laugh - a Lori Nichol choreographed program would probably be a major improvement on Gracie's original SP (they'll need to call in Lori for a special consultation on what GG needs to do about her flailing arm syndrome).

    I'm wondering if she will have a chance to try it out in a small competition or show somewhere. I'm sure it will be COPified and they will consult judges, but it would be nice to try it out before nationals.

    I seriously doubt it. For every obnoxious post complaining about Gershwin's great composition, there were others who appreciated that short program.

    Didn't Lori brush up Evan's Gershwin originally choreographed by TAT when he won the World title? So my prediction would be Lori would brush up one of Gracie's former short program. Just sayin'.

    Unfortunately Gracie's past was all that dreadful work by Scott Brown. Druggie Nutcracker or boobie-shimmy Hernando, which to choose? Lori should definitely start from scratch.
