    The whole Kataniye server seems to be down. It should be back in business later.

    Could you tell us what it said about the music? I know he dumped his new LP, but does it say what he is now skating to?

    johnny has a son? whoa, guess that's news to me. wonder why i ddin't know of it beforehand? who's the lucky mom?

    and "the swan?" is that an often used piece? related to 'swan lake'? doesn't sound too appealing...but for johnny, perhaps it's befitting that he skate to this type of music.

    "The Swan" by Saint-Saens (from his "Carnival of the Animals") was Oksana Baiul's exhibition program in 1994. I'm not sure how many other current skaters have used it, but it was/is a ballet classic performed by Pavlova and interpreted on the ice by the likes of Sonja Henie and Charlotte Oelschlager. If you are not familiar with the music, it is similar in mood to the other piece that Johnny mentions considering for his SP: Massenet's "Meditation from Thais".

    johnny has a son? whoa, guess that's news to me. wonder why i ddin't know of it beforehand? who's the lucky mom?
    I understand that the mother is a real b!tch. Seriously, Johnny's "son" is not a human but a dog.

    He hasn't revealed his new music yet, but did say the following:

    I won't say yet what the new music is, but it is different for me, and a bit edgier. It shows a lot of strength and growth for me. Usually I am very serious and straight laced, and the new free program is a bit more modern and a lot more powerful.

    Didn't quote the quote, but I'm very exciting that he says it's something different and challenging for him. That's what I think many of us were hoping for more of prior to his initial music announcement.

    I LOVE reading Johnny's interviews. Always more interesting than the more typical "PR / PC" responses we are used to!

    In the Blades on Ice update there's an article about the Liberty Open. Scroll down.

    http://www.bladesonice.com/mag/blaweb1.htm

    Johnnny talked about his programs:

    "Among the top skaters in the audience was the very fit looking US champion Johnny Weir, who said he had recovered from the foot problem which troubled him at worlds. He confirmed he was using Saint-Saens’ The Swan for the short and a “modern” version of Franz Lizst’s Lieberstraum."

    Liberty took place last month (July 13-16), so the Q&A is the more up-to-date info.
