    https://twitter.com/SkatingLesson has been tweeting Glacier Falls updates tonight.

    The tweets are based on reporting from TSL's source who is attending GF. (The TSL principals are not there themselves.)

    The only one who beat Karen Chen's Jr. Ladies LP was Courtney Hicks.

    James Bond music is a great idea for Mirai, however this LP music has far too many random cuts (I counted seven). Better to have picked just a few themes and developed them from there. When YuNa skated her Olympic short program to James Bond, you felt she was a Bond girl; the music cuts worked as a whole. I don't think Mirai can pull off the same mood when the music is all over the place.

    Thanks for posting that video! Is great to have Mirai's free to watch. I feel like 102.32 is kind of typical for Mirai at this point in the season if memory serves. No matter what year it is who her coach is etc... different skaters are able to peak in different ways.

    I actually really like this program. For me I think this could be her strongest free skate since Carmen and you can see her maturity in the choreography and the way she performs. She sells it. Her spins looked better here too. Too bad about the UR's - but that opening combo looked strong strong strong.

    I thought it wasn't terrible. It looked incomplete in places, as though there were some missing choreography or something.

    I'm OK with the program, but going into the Olympic season with the same FS music that won the prior Olympics is an odd choice, IMO.

    It seemed a little dated, maybe that's the music. I'll be interested in seeing where this goes. On the plus: it's a departure for her.

    Good for Courtney! Aside from Sochi, is she also fighting for the last GP spot at Skate America?

    i think mirai's long has potential...she was cautious it looked like. she needs more attitude and i hope her coaches can bring that out in her because she NEEDS that with bond music. i hope i can see courtney's long, that score is huge.

    I couldn't help but be struck by that myself. But I'll reserve judgement. Still excited to see what Mirai will do this season.

    *shrieks in delight* I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's fantastic! Love how quickly the crowd gets into it. He's still a little short of puff at the end but this is a magnificent program.

    Now please excuse me, I'm off to splash this link EVERYWHERE!

    I don't think it's as bad a look as last season's SP costume though. The shirt is fabulous - I do think he looks best when he has a bit of a V-neck going on. It makes him look older and stronger. The glitter does make the pants look oddly-shaped, which distorts his lines. If they're going to keep the glitter, then the ankle of the pants needs to be wider.

    I also think that maybe that pelvic decoration needs extending around the back, so that it looks like a belt or something. At the moment it's creating an optical illusion of a longer torso, which is not something Jason really needs. If they extended that one around the back, and then shortened up the decoration on the outside of his legs so that it stopped maybe halfway down his thighs, I think that would look kind of cool. The current decoration on the front of the pants looks odd when he's turning or from side-on.


    There are a few moments in this program I'm looking forward to seeing on the official video, just for the ice-level angle rather than the from-above angle. It looks fabulous so far and if he can build his stamina and put in the 4T at the start...well. The men's field at TEB might just be in for a bit of a surprise.

    I just watched Chen's FS: her jumps have improved a lot! Good job, Karen!
