    #TeamTrainwreck 20: Large Caliber Weapon

    Sorry that I'm not keeping properly up to date, but uuuuhhh...Nikita has really bombed himself out of any contention in the last year or so with all those medals, hasn't he? :blah: And he showed such potential for all time trainwreck greatness for years....:drama: But...only few are chosen, I...

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    Wow.:drama: Erm, I still think P/C are clear faves for Worlds (that it's also in Montreal will be in their favor). IMO they just seemed slightly off in both portions here and since that FD seems to be somewhat controversial...yeah, they're making themselves vulnerable, since the RD is seldom...

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    Blumberg is mean. But she'll be mean to everyone, so that's okay. Callers who go strangely selective with how strict they are (coughDostatnicough) are worse IMO. And yeah, good luck to everyone! :cheer2:

    Sin/Kats Really Need a Cheer Right Now!

    FD: Dvorak Zhulin actually managed to give them two good programs! :D Reading here that they started late with training because of injuries...it's even more impressive how prepared they look. Both programs are very good and cater to their strengths. Going by first impressions, I'm actually...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    Mixing Timberlake with Carmen isn't hardcore enough. They should aim higher: "Cry Me a River"/Carmina Burana (with techno beat) remix. First reenacting dramatik break-up/then heavy Orff drama for the most spectacular lifts, then ending with the rain sounds from Timberlake. And all of that in...

    Sin/Kats Really Need a Cheer Right Now!

    Lovely music. It's not a warhorse and if they do well with it, there's always the chance to turn it into a signature piece for them. Looking forward to it.

    From Russia with Love [#33]: Summer 2019

    As tribute: Anna Karenina Their best work IMO. As time goes on, I appreciate this program more and more. So beautiful.

    Vaytsekhovskaya's interview with Soloviev

    I admit, I'd really like to see I/S in a competitive environment. They're both phenomenal talents. It's also clear that he's super motivated and wants to try. But if she's not sure or if she were to do it as a favor to him, that wouldn't work at all. Both need to be super committed to accomplish...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    I think this is a good song choice for SinKats. It's perhaps not super original, but it is great music with lots of potential for good skating and choregraphy. And I can really see Nikita selling it, he just needs to step away from the scenery chewing. :drama: He's done it so far and become much...

    From Russia With Love (No 32): Spring to Summer 2019

    I think this could be a good move for T/M. They have the technical goods, but seem really unsure what to do as performers. Zoueva did great work with G/G and has delivered strong pairs choreo throughout the years. The sort of classical, restrained style she favours is a good fit for T/M as well...

    From Russia With Love (No 32): Spring to Summer 2019

    Yeah, I think there is probably something to that. V/T and S/K weren't kids anymore and they also had a very strong self-motivation and vision for their own careers. If you have pairs like that, doing management and organization for them is probably most needed and they can deal with a...

    The Dance Hall 6: We're All Off Our Rockers 2018-2019

    No, no, you don't get it, the DRAMZ! part at the end is a sekret masterpiece! :D It's a metaphor for the endless ice dance struggle: He's saying "Oh noez, Vika, Dostatni is the tech specialist!" , she says "Damn! We will get a random level two for no reason somewhere now!" and then they both...

    The Dance Hall 6: We're All Off Our Rockers 2018-2019

    Yeah, pretty much all of this. I don't get what H/D were doing this season and what Montreal was doing with them for that matter? IMO they got off pretty lightly since they still won Worlds bronze, but I wasn't convinced at all by either their programs or their performances to be frank. The RD...

    Sin/Kats Really Need a Cheer Right Now!

    Yeah, they need to do something interesting in the FD in particular. This year's FD suited them well and they performed it awesomely, but it was rather conservative. They need to present something more challenging if they want to keep their momentum. OTOH, you have Zhulin with his sometimes...

    The Dance Hall 6: We're All Off Our Rockers 2018-2019

    The thing with Elena and Nikita (yes, I'm going there...:D) is that they've both been such massive underachievers relative to their potential and talent, together and with other partners, and the judges know it. The judges, to this day it seems, are kinda waiting for them to get it together so...
