    I'm sure he's fine. He did the morning practice and his jumps looked good except for the quad.

    Thanks Tonichelle!

    So cool... Watching the practices almost makes me feel like I'm actually there.

    I adore the music but I wouldn't go so far as to say it steals the show from Tessa and Scott!

    I liked their programs a lot at Thornhill (also R&H, not that that's relevant here, except that Canada has so many enjoyable dance teams)

    I really liked her practice outfit, too -- the leggings and the grey top with yellow trim (or layered tops, whichever it was). She looked attractive but workmanlike.

    Interesting music choice for Jeremy. I didn't realize he was going to skate to something from Pina this year. His combo and axel looked really really good. I'm looking forward to seeing this skated full out. He looked a little slow/tired to me here but we'll see once he's really in front of an audience.

    It's funny I struggle when I see skaters use the music from Pina. For me it's definitely a moment when I have to forget about my old associations with the music and try to appreciate the skating. That was especially difficult when S/S first used it and were doing a mimic of gestures and ideas created by Tanztheater Wuppertal (I should add I am a professional dance/theater artist and for me, Pina Bausch is arguably the most important choreographer of the 20th century... but I digress).

    I think one thing I'm realizing is since the movie Pina came out, the particular song Lilies of the Valley has become the Carmen of the dance and theater world in many ways. Good music, that gets way overused. But to be fair the music isn't used that much in figure skating... yet...

    However it looks like Jeremy is doing his own take on it and I'm looking forward to seeing the fully fleshed out concept! He looked to be in pretty good shape at the Japan Open so I hope he's building on what he did there.

    Good luck to Nobu! Wishing him a podium finish, or even a win at Skate Canada. One reason is I LOVE his programs two of them finally; which hasn't happened to me before so that I have been waiting and waiting aaand waiting ever since Nobu moved up senior circuit. The other reason is because he probably is the one who needs every points thruout this GrandPrixSeries+Final among Japanese boys, if we look at the current World Standings: http://www.isuresults.com/ws/ws/wsmen.htm
    And a bit surprised Yuzuru is above Patrick now. wow...

    Goooo Nobu!

    Gracie was in perfect shape last season. I hope she doesn't get so thin she starts losing muscle mass. Her jumps are her ticket to Sochi and i'd hate to see coaches go overboard with her weight.
