    Don't know if it was already posted but miki ando changed her short to music Grabiel's oboe and The Falls by Ennio Morricone! I love this music! I'm sure it'll be better than the old one!
    Carolina won't change her jump layout (let's see if she'll managed to do the 3toe 3toe in the short! hope so) and I'm 99% sure she won't show up today because she left Italy this morning (or afternoon...don't know..Italy's time however)

    Gabriel's oboe (Nella Fantasia) is one of the most marvellous piece of music ever written,gives me always chills, however Miki to skate to it?
    She is the one of the most emotionless top skater I can ever remember!

    Yup! I'm interested to see Miki try and be lyrical and expressive in this new program, not saying it will happen, but it could.

    Carolina used this at her SP in 2006 Olympics. Would be interesting to see her changes.

    Oh... I love that music. Hopefully the beauty of it will really inspire Miki skate soulfully. Good luck to her!

    Any other reports on how the skaters are doing?

    Well, I ADORE that music, gives me chills the same way as Nessun Dorma does. If Miki won't do justice to it's beauty and skate like to the phone book, I am going to be very mad!

    Thank goodness that they're okay, but the way in which the collision happened was actually kind of funny. It's like Taka was in mid-air and just bonked Dai...the manner in which it occurred is straight out of a cartoon or something.

    I learned early from watching pracice sessions that what you see is not what you get in competition - so I now sleep through them.

    As to music, thanks to MM's viewpoint, a high score in the SP shows what 'artistry' there is in a skater. The LP is more of a battle for points with little artistry except for ballet-like arms of the Ladies, and wild uncontrollable arms for the Men. Winning is the game.

    Oh, my God! Couldn't be scarier than this! Wish both of them good luck at the competition! I can't wait!
