Excerpt from the Challenger Series thread (and re-posted in the U.S. Men's thread) in GSD:
I guess this is probably unofficial, but the Nebelhorn Trophy's page, does list a couple of the planned competitors (translation provided by Google - so if spelling/grammar/weird errors, blame the bot):

"... The popular American Jason Brown wants to present his new freestyle on "Schindler's List" in Germany for the first time in front of an audience."

Speaking of Schindler's List, Jordan has posted a longer clip of Jason's program:

Jordan has posted part 2 of 3 of Jason's Schindler's List program:


Beautiful, emotional ... (I'm not going to get through this program without a box of tissues) ... :wuzrobbed

A new article about Jason as he prepares for Skate America.

Brown is looking forward to debuting two new programs this season: a short program to Kaleo's "I Can't Go On Without You," choreographed by Rohene Ward, and a free skate choreographed by David Wilson to music from the 1993 drama Schindler's List.

"The short program is very sultry and fun and has a good beat," he said. "I like the darker, cool undertone to the program; I just absolutely love it. I think it shows off a little bit of my personality and I hope that the audience really gets into it and enjoys it as well.

"Schindler's List is a piece of music I've always wanted to skate to. I'm really excited that I'm doing it this year and it's very powerful, emotional, strong and captivating, but also dark, and I just really hope to pull the audience in and take them on a bit of an emotional journey. I love that program and I'm just so eager to get out in front of an audience."

And we eagerly await seeing you!

I realized what was unusual about the Jason article I linked to.

There is no mention of quads- what he's tried, what he's working on, what he needs to have.

It's a fluffy fluff piece and maybe that's why the quad struggles go unmentioned. But it is noticeable (by me at least, after a good night's sleep) that there are no references to them at all.

But, he did say, at the end of the season (sorry can't remember exactly where I read that), that he was starting to rotate his quad. Since he hasn't yet landed one deemed fully rotated by the judges yet, he's not known for landing them. Maybe why that is missing?

On the one hand, Jackie Wong's notes on Jason's practice session aren't too promising:





Jackie Wong

@rockerskating



Practice notes Brown: 2A, 3F, 3Lz2T, 3Lz3T, 3A, 3A(hangs on), 3F, runthru (3F, 3A(2ft?), 3Lz3T, 3F, 2S, 3S, 4S(ur,fall), 1S(step), 1S(step), 4S(ur,step)


On the other hand, Sylvia's link to footage of Jason's footwork section is just wonderful:


I think the two in combination explain the joys and frustrations of Jason fandom.

Well, I'm really no judge, but to me his jumps (minus the pops) looked as solid as I've ever seen them! Certainly a hop, skip and a jump better than last year.
And of course both programs were wonderfully performed :D I only could have asked for (even) higher components at least in the fs (didn't take note in sp) -- humph! :p

I enjoyed both his programs in SA. Impressive since he was not on ice-doing spins for long, before competing. And he came away with a silver medal.

Article via JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency):

ETA that the article references this one that was published during Skate America:

In case anyone needed any more proof that Jason Brown is an actual angel with the most beautiful heart in the world.

After his skating career is over, if Jason doesn't have a gazillion opportunities in whatever field he chooses, there is no justice in this world. He should get whatever he wants, IMO.

I am really hoping he does well at Golden Spin. In itself it’s not a particularly meaningful competition, but it would be wonderful to see that he’s regained his confidence, figured out what went wrong at NHK, and moved beyond it. I’m also curious if they’ll retain the NHK layout and if he will make an actual attempt at the 4T this time. Whatever the reasons for the change, I’m happy because it has allowed him to bring back his beautiful 3Z-Euler-3S.
