so you mean that Chopin needs something more simple and natural in style, something smooth and dont make it look difficult. This is it you meant?If it is it is a really good thought about plushy, i will think of it. I m thinking he will have not to skate like tosca but then maybe he wont skate to nocturne so i dunno.
I know dee with kill me for this but yag for me had not the natural programs you said, although being the second favorite when he was around. While on tarasova it gave me the impression that his expressions like pain, smile etc were choreographed which was the only tiny thing i minded and prevented me for enjoying him 100%, the one thing i dont feel about plushy even if he skates angry as Joe says, it doesnt seem programmed. For the record neither Jouby gives me the impression of choreographed emotions. Maybe my issue is with Tarasova, i dont know.
Patrick Chan I thought the opposite, that he makes diificult steps and make them look easy, although his style I cannot follow much...he makes me feel anxious.
But then again, what do I know...I was a total Yagudin fan in the Yags-Plushy wars.
i was not in the rival so much cause i liked them both maybe?didnt see it as war, and i was happy with every result. Also greek commentators didnt enhance rival at all, i remember them speaking grandiose for both so they passed me that feeling through tv.So i had two fav skaters winning golds and silvers!But then again, what do I know...I was a total Yagudin fan in the Yags-Plushy wars.
I was thinking about programs like broken arrow (my fav) , iron mask and gladiator when spoke about choreographed emotions, certainly not winter!
I just think plushy was most fav for me between the two cause he was younger and had a yellow head:o, seemed exotic at the time. Then I learnt to appreciate his skating also.

this one certainly fostered a bellicose atmosphere
Anyways, I definitely liked Yagudin better but I grew to appreciate Plushenko as well--I very much enjoyed his Carmen LP at the 2002 Olympics, and his St. Petersburg 3000 LP.
And janetfan--Plushenko was indeed a phenomenal jumper (I'd say Yagudin was more of a power-jumper as opposed to the effortless type) but I'd say the most effortless jumps of all belonged to Ilia Kulik, especially when he did his trademark spreadeagle into triple axel
2. I also liked Yagudin better, but I still appreciated Plushenko a lot.
3. Kulik's jumps rocked - such a talent!
4. Thanks for teaching me a new word - bellicose - does not happen often these days that I meet an English word that I do not know.
5. Plushenko has a sexy voice

I love Kulik's show programs from an artistic point of view a lot. Technically he was fantastic from age 16 or so, but his amateur programs do not impress me as much as his exhibitions and later his show numbers with SOI.

Wow I havent seen this fluff for a long time, so much drama from Nbc( and the 2006 plush profile, i love it) boys look great and plushy looks like baby there, it just hit me I grew old!
I like this fluff a lot, yag has sexy voice too, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGE6aMtfw9E but they included plushy's fall exactly when they say the world champion , coincidence? :sheesh: And Honda is there, it has been so long
And no, whatever plushy had done in 2002 it was Yag's moment. I would have given him the olympic medal just right after winter. But i liked Plushy à la Carmen very very much.
I thought the music in The Pianist would be very suitable for Plushenko. He has the capacity to make the program great!
