    I didn't think that Kostner's programs this year were very good. They weren't bad, but I hope that Lori will up her game for Daisuke.

    I'm glad about the Daisuke change. It's about time that Lori had quality skaters to work with other than Patrick. Good for the both of them.

    Oh yeah. I can't believe I forgot about Jeremy. I love Jeremy. Excited to hear news on his new program(s?) for the coming year.

    Italy's Paul Parkinson tweeted today that he is in Toronto getting choreography from Jeff Buttle.

    I won't worry about Daisuke and Nichol. That guy could do wonders with something like Chopsticks or Mary had a Little Lamb, or even skate around a speed skating oval and make it memorable.

    :cheer: :cheer2: :cheer: for Patrick working with Jeff next season! His exhibition that Jeff choreographed was miles better for him than anything he's done as a senior, IMHO.

    Yeah, I might actually be able to watch him skate. He needs to be able to just skate, and not contort himself in 97384 ways to fit Nichol's flaily CoPeography and end up, you know, falling on footwork :| Has Jeffrey done any choreo for programs that aren't exhibitions yet?

    As for Dai... sigh. I guess maybe he feels like he needs the extra point from here and there to have a chance at getting a gold medal ever? Meh. I'd give pretty much anything for this to happen, that said.

    Oh, definitely, Blues for Klook, and Jeremy's Muse Redemption the top two programs of last season. Also Camerlengo's work for W&P and for AdaRipp, excellent! No mystery why Camerlengo won choreographer of the year award. (I also enjoyed Julie Marcotte's work in pairs).

    I agree with dinakt's assessment re Lori Nichol -- she has done some interesting work at times, and sometimes she has seemed stretched too thin. Dai has only gotten better and better so I can't see him not wowing again next season. I hope he stays healthy.

    Seibert's work with AdaRipp sounds like a fascinating departure. From Angel Boy to Cool, Dapper Man -- and the Michael Giacchino music selections are apt.

    The thematic idea reminds me of my past suggestion for Tomas Verner to channel some of Steve McQueen's 1960s cool:

    I think you nailed it. Heading into Sochi, it's important to break him out of the 'boy' or juniorish perception, especially in the judges eyes.
  12. aftershocks

    aftershocks Well-Known Member

    ^^ Yes, perhaps. Can't wait to see the result. But at the same time, altho' it is important to challenge oneself and break out of familiar image mold, I see nothing wrong with Angel Boy's curls or boyishness. Just a fact that Adam is growing up and needs to take a more challenging approach to his skating. I'm all for him doing something that stretches him and helps him to stand out from the crowd. I don't think he expressly needs to lose all his curls (perhaps just some of the halo-like abundance and bounce ;)).

    The manly, cool image is a fascinating cultural theme, especially for fs I suppose. I must say tho' that manly cool always has its downside, and always masks the sensitive side or hides the shell of the corrupted rake who has lost touch with his own humanity/ identity. Maybe some of these contrasting aspects will be brought out too in Seibert's choreo? There may be a lot of yin in figure skating, but yang must always balance yin (and vice versa). And yes, edgy to me is always the way to go, unpredictable over predictable.

    Rumors say that Nichol is working with Daisuke only on his SP, while Pasquale will still be choreographing his LP. Can anyone confirm?

    ^^ I'd say Hurrah to that, if true!

    Exactly who and how many skaters is Camerlengo working with this coming season? Seems like he will have his hands full with Plush (but for Plush to want to work with him, he is obviously seeking to tap more into his artistry). Perhaps Pasquale will complete work with Plush before the end of the summer.

    I so hope he uses the DUN DUN.

    I love the epicness of the trailer music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOJqicM6x84. It has a beat for the ice dancers, right? :D

    This is rather disappointing to hear.

    While I can see the benefits of keeping a program (saves time coming up with a new concept, and money choreographing two new numbers) I can't help but think it's a step back instead of a step forward. To tell you the truth unless you're a junior skater transitioning to seniors or a low ranked skater who can't afford two new programs it just seems lazy to recycle a program that now has a lot of mileage. :yawn: He competed a full season with these two programs.

    Maybe it's just me, but there're enough music selections and concepts out there for a million skaters.

    I have two ideas for you Jeremy: :p

    Short: A cowboy themed program to The Wings (Brokeback Mountain soundtrack)

    Short: A superhero themed program to Captain America.(selections from the soundtrack) Jeremy would make the perfect Captain America. :swoon:



    or maybe a hip instrumental version to "Beauty in The World"

    ^^ Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with Jeremy keeping one of his last season's programs. I'd prefer to see him keep Muse Redemption for exploring as an exhibition, and keeping his fun sp. I love Brokeback Mountain soundtrack, but I don't like "cowboy-theme." However, Jeremy could just skate to the beauty of the music without the necessity of interpreting a cowboy-theme, just a universal human theme re love and heartbreak.

    Your Captain America selections/ suggestions sound promising for Jeremy. :)

    I wouldn't mind seeing Jeremy keep Muse for another season. I loved his interpretation at Nationals, but I think he could take it to another level with a clean program.

    Vanessa Crone and her new partner chose the same theme. Piper Gillis and Paul Poirier will skate to Mary Poppins that's alot of Julie Andrews for the canadians...:(

    I interpreted the sentence in the article linked above "(Takahashi is working on his 2012-13 programs with Lori Nichol.)" to mean that Camerlengo is not working with Takahashi this season (as of the time of his interview with IN), but we'll have to wait and see.

    Also, I've heard that Jeremy Abbott still may be considering having 2 new programs next season (skaters change their minds all the time, as we know! ;)).

    Love that piece of music and I think his skating and the music would be devine together. Wish more skaters would look to music from Gustavo Santaolalla like the Motorcycle Diaries, 21 Grams, and so on.

    Ragtime should be fun

    The music choices actually sound perfect for Oda, especially the LP. Dare I get hopeful?
