    The Lost Skating Interviews by David Barba & James Pellerito

    I had recently mentioned these interviews compiled by Barba and Pellerito when they were doing research for a figure skating documentary a number of years ago. Once they decided to focus their documentary exclusively on Johnny Weir (Pop Star On Ice, 2009), they no longer had any use for this...

    The Shibutanis Thread 6: Paradise Found

    This announcement probably means that they've continued to train while taking advantage of all the off-ice opportunities. They've probably also been keeping an eye on the competitive ice dance field. It will be interesting to see what new approaches and looks they can bring to the arena. You...

    Vanessa James | Morgan Cipres

    Dave stated that he texted Vanessa to ask about J/C's competitive plans, and she responded... :eek: The question is how did they get into this position, let alone out of it safely. Unless perhaps they employed visual camera tricks. That's some boffo core muscle strength in any case. Amazing.

    Royalty Thread #10 -Archie Phase 2 - Bold and Bald Still

    :rolleyes: re "they appear to stay in what has now become the acceptable level of bitchiness" :duh: There's a lot of coverage of M&H in the U.S. which is understandable since Meghan is American. Much of the coverage of the Sussexes in the U.S. is fairly positive, aside from some media picking...

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    It's always a process and a journey, different for every team. All U.S. teams have improved and are continuing to steadily improve. I think it's also important to remember that a number of U.S. teams have had to overcome a lot due to battling injuries and illness in recent years. If not for such...

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    Can we please take discussion of non-U.S. pairs teams to the general pairs thread where I posted some of the top Warsaw Cup sp pairs videos... Good luck to C/J in the fp. Digerness/Neudecker got off to a pretty good start, but then they ran into problems which is why they are farther down in...

    U.S. Pairs 2019-20 season - News & Updates, Part X

    I just found out about the pairs result in the sp at Warsaw Cup in the general pairs thread. :) Here's C/J's sp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcpEUfVwAZI :encore: Audio is a bit tinny, but it's nice to have a video; very well-skated, aside from slight negative GOE on the sbs spins. I...

    Pairs Discussion Thread 2019-20: “Two skating as one”

    Eh, I never said "if the skater isn't smiling, they must be entitled, arrogant snobs..." I qualified everything I said, and I didn't reference T/M or P/J as being petulant. I actually said that IMO Boi/Kos don't exhibit expressions that are 'overly petulant or arrogant.' It's my opinion that...

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    ^^ Oh yeah, I recall seeing or hearing something about that. And in their recent interview, Kirsten & Michael spoke about having a team of coaches to draw upon. Do Purkiss and Shales coach at a nearby rink or at the same rink as Bruno and Meagan? Kirsten is all-in with Michael. And Trennt seems...

    Why all of the mid-routine costume changes?

    I get the feeling that the songs Amber Glenn has been skating to speak to her in some way about heartache over her breakup with Nathan a couple of years ago. Young emotions can really run high regarding relationship drama and splits. Surely by now, she's moved on. But maybe she really relates to...

    They have to have a try-out first though. And I don't ever see that happening, ever. :( ;)
