    Thanks for posting the link - I love reading Johnny's entries. If the "fluff piece" does turn out to be more about how a program is developed (rather than shopping and fashion and other .... well, fluff) then we might end up with a fluff piece worth watching. Since we know we are going to be stuck with fluff pieces anyway LOL!

    Can't wait to see the new LP (and SP) and it's good news if he really is landing quads almost every day.

    Which program (year? LP I assume?) did Irina use similar music?

    It's about driving me nuts waiting for the new season.

    It's a good thing Johnny is skating at Campbell's Oct 8, or we'd have to wait until the 27th for Skate Canada (and of course we won't get to see either Campbell's or Skate Canada until at least a week or two after the events; we probably won't get to see the Japanese cheesefest at all).

    I hope he lands a quad at the Japanese cheesfest on Sept 29 or Campbell's, just to set himself up for the GP.

    The waiting is driving me crazy!

    You'll probably be able to get his Skate Canada programs with a day or two on fsvids because CTV is usually pretty good at televising competitions same-day.

    I don't get CTV. In the US, you have to live near the Canadian border to get it, and most of us in the US are not in that category.

    Bookmark this site. As soon as anything is televised anywhere in the world, you can get video clips shortly. http://fsvids.9.forumer.com/

    I've been really enjoying that site this summer, and need to figure out a good way to reciprocate for all the great viewing pleasures I've had!!

    Same for me, DG! That's what I meant euteurpe (sp?). There's lots of Canadians on fsvids that will post clips of the CTV coverage so you can see within the next day or too.

    I'm also on a quest for trying to be able to help out! I've been taking so much, but don't really know how to get my videos on to my computer or anything that technical so all I can really do is repost for people when I get the chance.

    That's a good forum, but I've never had the chance to check it out. I lost my old video hosting forum, but it's unlikely that I will get it back up due to time constraints. Instead, I will continue to make videos (I can now make BQ (TV broadcast quality) versions due to a new video codec I discovered last year while working on the Marshall's spring pro-am) but if anyone wants them they'll have to contact me instead. What's even worse is that I lost my vid database on my old forum...

    I'm considering the POSSIBILITY of posting videos on this forum if I'm allowed to. I certainly wouldn't mind making vids available to all the good people here who don't want to register at other forums just to get vids. (Once again, this is a POSSIBILITY- no promises here)...

    Hey Red Dog, thanks for considering videos here if it's allowed. I can't even imagine how much time and disk space that involves. Let the games begin!!!

    Johnny is amazing!!! He covers everything about his skating with a little bit of personal life.

    I really dug that piece on changing his routine because he didn't want certain elements stolen. I don't blame him.

    And TT separating Johnny from Andrej. How cool is that?

    YOU GO BOY!!!

    Joe

    A blogger apart

    I agree, I love Johnny's posts. There are always tantalizing bits of info in them that we fans would be hard pressed to learn about on our own. I love how substantive and irreverent he is.

    I really liked this post a lot...had, as Joe pointed out, a great balance of programs, training, practice related stuff and personal...all in a quick to read few paragraphs. He's smart.

    His posts are always so interesting to read... you can tell he writes them himself, whereas I get the feeling that sasha and others may have ghost writers. He does a really good job of promoting himself, even if he isnt being "handled" by pr people for his site. Its tone is much more intune with the citizen journalism/blogger movement.

    I think it's because he says a lot about everything as emma pointed out. It's not the usual 'taking one day at a time', etc.
