    I'm wondering whether you captured any pairs' programs, especially Evora/Ladwig & Moscovitch/Moscovitch?
    Hopefully you will get to see them. Evora/Ludwig were beautiful. The throws were huge . Hand down on throw 3lutz, but really impressive. For so early, they were very clean. I just loved them! I am partial to that Nutcracker music!!!!

    Alexei's LP is like her SP last season, similar music, costume, and style. Her SP is like her LP last season. I liked her SP better last year, precisely because of the rhythm, but this year, I don't like the LP as much. I think she has better extension, flow, and musicality in her SP right now. But maybe that's just a matter of its being so early in the season and she hasn't had as much to refine the LP. The quality of skating, likes spins and transitions were better in her '08 national's than this weekend. Probably she's been concentrating on the jumps over the summer, as well as learning the new programs. It's amazing how much height she gets on her toe jumps even though she doesn't bend and reach back a whole lot on take-off.

    She wore a red & yellow costume for her SP last year, and it looked gorgeous on her! I don't like her yellow costume as much this year, maybe because it's a ligher shade of yellow, and blended with black instead of red.

    A bit belatedly, I want to say that I agree with all the other posters who are impressed by Ashley's new found sense of delicacy, serenity, and lyricality. She said in an interview that her choreographer told her to think about her boyfriend when she skates, so maybe that's what made the difference!

    IMO, very few blondes can carry off yellow in an ice rink, especially light or pale yellow. Rink lighting and low contrast work against them, too much blending, I think. Thankfully, great skating, however, can overcome many costuming blunders. JW

    I don't think that there are many people at all that can carry off wearing yellow! I personally have been lusting after one particular skating dress that is the most beautiful, buttery shade of yellow, but I look truly awful in yellow. *sob* I don't think Alexe looks all that bad in her yellow dress, but she's lovelier in that green one for her SP.

    Love Gilles Free Program.

    Very different and engaging music (what a relief from all the classics that the world top skaters are skating to.)

    I kinda like the yellow actually! The program has that Surya Bonaly quality to it! I like it!

    I Ain't Never Had Too Much Fun by Trace Adkins

    http://www.lyricsandsongs.com/song/591971.html

    I can remember when his showmanship/fun programs were all anyone could talk about on another skating board that I loved being on (anyone remember Skate Forums 'back in the day'?) and I'd never seen him and I wish I could have. I love that he's not super serious and EMO... he has fun and lets teh crowd get involved. I love it. It really looks like he loves being out there.

    Totally OT but Trace Adkins is one of the big names coming and performing at the AK State Fair this year

    Sounds like Rachael certainly didn't have "the meet of her life" but given her participation in that student/medicine program in Boston just before, I think it's terrific that she (with her parents' support obviously) is seeking a balance with her skating and education. Am certain she'll be peaked and primed in time for the "real shows" this fall on the Grand Prix series.

    Rachael was distinctly NOT pleased with her FS performance at Liberty. She is a very determined young lady, and you can be sure she will perform it very well indeed at Skate America. And considering that it was the first time she performed it, and she had been off the ice for a fairly long period (for the class) right before Liberty) her performance wasn't all that bad anyway.

    Here's the final list of all the vids I have up on youtube from Liberty. New ones are bolded. Brandon Mroz's are in red. I will only be leaving these up for a limited time. Brandon didn't skate well, and I doubt he would like these on youtube for a protracted period of time:

    Well, it's the middle of July and everyone is allowed to have a bad skate here and there. But I have to ask this: who selected the music for LP and SP? Who choreographed these programs? Mroz is young, he is a great jumper - give him some Joubert-type programs, let him have some fun out there.

    Medusa, yes I too do not expect great skates in July, particularly from the seniors on the Grand Prix, whose schedule does not start till late October. Brandon first assignment is Skate Canada.

    I can't say I like either his music choice or his costumes, though.

    Tom Dickson choreographed the SP, Lori Nichol choreographed the LP. I think Mroz uses Julie McDonough for his costumes this season IIRC.
