I also like his new LP , much better than I did both of his LPs from last season, and Yagudin's ex music has roused all the nostalgic feelings in me. I can't wait for the Olympics to begin!
His spins looked so much better. I guess some time spent with Lucinda Ruh has paid well. ow he only needs to land his jumps. Imagine how exciting the program will look like if he does!
I kind of hope he can use a new SP for the olympic season. I liked it a lot. It has always been a crowd-pleaser, and Joubert sold it well. But somewhat I just don't feel very excited about seeing it again for another entire season. The same goes with other skaters too. I mean, come on, it's the olympic season! People want to see something new! I do understand that skaters stick to their old programs for various different reasons, but still
ETA: I want to thank whoever opens this new thread; I'm very happy to take an early glance at Brian's new program. And may I say the title is indeed an eye-catcher!

For his new LP, I want to add, I like his straight line footwork section very much. But somehow, I don't like him using Yagudin's "Overcome" music. It distracts me. I couldn't thoroughly enjoy his skating - I was thinking about Yagudin's movement.
Brian Joubert and the NHK documentary, this time in English (very short article).
Add me to the group who wanted a new SP. I was never a huge fan of Rise, even back when it was an exhibition (at least the costume was better then!). On the other hand, I do like Brian, and if this is what works for him in preparing for the Olympics, I guess I'll have to go with it . I've read that they've tinkered with the ending a bit, I guess I'll see if that's the case at TEB...
Think of the Zhangs in Torino, or Carolina Kostner's silver in 2008, or Savchenko/Szolkowy win at 2008 Worlds - they skated a bad LP, and were still first despite a really good and almost totally clean performance from D/D. Not to mention that the chances of more than 1-2 people of the top tier skaters going clean are slim.
I agree with B.
The good thing is that this time, Joubert's LP seems not only having jumps. It has emotion and intensity. I expect this program to bring out more of his artistic talent.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!!
I wish you all the best in your life, specially a gold medal at Olympics!
Losts of kisses and hugs to you
Didn't someone suggest Joubert will stay in eligible skating post-Vancouver in order to (among other things) have an opportunity to skate at Worlds in France? Well - apparently the FFSG is applying to host 2012 Worlds (Brian will be 27 then). Though I must say it would be a bit surprising for a European city to host Worlds that year, given that 2010 is in Torino.
