    I echo your wish for health and strength for all the skaters. Wouldn't it be great to see a men's final that's like the ladies' final in Vancouver in 2010, with no falls and everyone at top level? That would be something to treasure.

    Some quotes from Dai on new programs:
    -----------------------------------------------
    "When I listen to Sonatina, I felt the message that '(regardless how it may look now), we can believe there is hope/light at the end of it'."
    "After picked up the music, people around me encouraged me because, if I pull this off properly and I can visualize the music with my body movements, it may be of some help to Mr Samuragochi the composer, who is unable to hear how it actually sounds even though he did compose it himself, to see the music through me." (Asahi Shimbun, July 11)

    "I wanted the classical music; not the one ordinary (=very familiar/traditional) classical piece but which also sounds something contemporary." "I picked up this piece based on my intuition." (Chunichi Shimbun)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djSM...layer_embedded

    "As for my Free, the theme is about love. I have met so many people throughout my skating life, even though there are people I don't spend time/work with now and I can't/don't see anymore. However, what made me as I am today is simply thanks to each and every one of them. The Beatles medley reminds me once again how much I am grateful to those who all concerned and helped me in various ways in my whole career." (Sankei Shimbun, July 11)

    Here is the lyrics of 'In My Life':
    There are places I remember
    All my life, though some have changed
    Some forever not for better
    Some have gone and some remain
    All these places have their moments
    With lovers and friends I still can recall
    Some are dead and some are living
    In my life I've loved them all

    But of all these friends and lovers
    There is no one compares with you
    And these memories lose their meaning
    When I think of love as something new
    Though I know I'll never lose affection
    For people and things that went before
    I know I'll often stop and think about them
    In my life I love you more

    Though I know I'll never lose affection
    For people and things that went before
    I know I'll often stop and think about them
    In my life I love you more
    In my life I love you more

    ----------------------------------------------

    Out of Beatles medley; Yesterday, Come Together, Friends and Lovers, In My Life, Winding Road, I LOVE 'Friends & Lovers', which was composed by Goerge Martin, once Beatles' producer, to delicate to John Lennon.

    Thanks everyone, Been my pleasure! Dai has been quiet in May and June, but wow so many updates lately. my time and bad English just does not catch up with it...I need LT's help!!!

    -Daisuke w/ Shizuka on FM Radio, "My Olympic" (Jul 1-12th): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur3tyhMiF40
    -Sankei Express Jul 16th: http://www.sankeibiz.jp/express/news...1531002-n1.htm

    Dai talks about new programs into more details in Sankei Ex, though all in Japanese...It was a great read.
    Hopefully some genius will post the article in her/his blog with English translations soon!

    ETA: I've finished editing on SOUL Up Ex <3>!

    ^Since LT's banning I have been visiting DTFF for information about Dai and there has been a world of information from the members about his new programs. Just about every article has been translated and also the Radio show has been translated. They are wonderful group of folks and I hope they don't mind me lurking, they have also reported that Dai's new Exhibition Program will be "Time to Say Goodbye" by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocell choreographed by Kenji.

    I didn't know that he's come back from US (Nikolai's camp) and Canada (meeting with Lori), but Dai has showed up at the Opening Ceremony of a new ice rink in Nishinomiya, Hyogo today.
