    Joshua Farris

    Because you can't have one without the other!

    I'll start with my five favourite Joshua performances:

    1. 2012 Lake Placid Junior Grand Prix - Long Program (Rachmanoff's 2nd) - the first quad toe, a gorgeous program, and smashing the competition by 36 points!

    2. 2012 Junior World Championships - Short Program (Clair de Lune) - this is just gorgeous, and so effortless, so light.

    3. 2013 US National Championships - Short Program (Bach Cello Suite) - such a mature, fantastic program

    4. 2013 Junior World Championships - Long Program (Rach again) - apart from the fall, just magnificent.

    5. 2013 Junior World Championships - Ex - "Ain't No Sunshine" - I wish he'd quit the emo ex's, but this one is quite lovely.

    Barely finished my short program today in Vail. Note the word 'barely' lol. #altitude
    7:58 PM - 12 Jul 13
    https://twitter.com/joshDfarris/stat...84010402103296

    Someone tweeted back and asked what his music is. No reply from Farris as of this writing.

    And I don't see any Vail results online.

    Last year we didn't get any, I don't think. And the only videos were fancams, which was the only way we found out the new music. Hopefully there'll be fancams again this year...I can't WAIT to see it!

    Also, don't worry about the barely finished comment...he did that last year too. Altitude + asthma = not so good

    Ah! Finally, some music news. He didn't get to skate at An Evening on Ice because he got sick, but he still came to the meet and greet, and a fan asked him about his music.

    His answer was, apparently:

    SP: Tango
    LP: Schindler's List

    Doesn't he train at altitude? (Colorado Springs) Short program must be demanding. Really looking forward to watching it. Such an elegant skater.

    Vail is at 8000 feet, vs Colorado Springs at 6000 feet, so the altitude difference is quite significant. Josh also has asthma, so breathing is not as easy for him as others at any rate.

    But you are probably also right in that the short program may be quite demanding.

    According to a tidbit dropped on The Skating Lesson's This and That last week, he also had to stop his long program partway through because he forgot it. Oops!

    Does he have a twitter account? Does he tweet? I would LOVE him to be more active with social media

    He doesn't tweet very often...I just don't think he's that kind of guy. But every now and then he'll go through stages where he tweets a fair bit over a period of time...and then silence for a while.

    I have to say, I am really disappointed in these musical selections. I don't think either of them suit his personality. A tango? Something sexually-charged for a young, fresh-faced teenager? And then something so heavy and dark like Schindler's List? He shouldn't have to bear the weight of that storyline. Last year's programs were just perfect, especially the Bach cello suite (SP), and this just doesn't measure up.

    He is a young man now. There is nothing wrong with a young man pursuing a sexually-charged program. And I anticipate it, because it will encourage him to come out of his shell and really perform.

    And Schindler's List is extremely beautiful and IMO will suit his style wonderfully. It's an Olympic season. If you can't challenge yourself now, where can you?

    Josh debuted his "Libertango" SP today at SLC. Scored 71.85. Stepped out of the 4T but was good on the other jumps. What let him down were the spins...his CCoSp was a level 1, his StSq was a level 2, his camel was a level 3.

    No videos yet, but his very costume is in pictures! https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/1...84456109224369
