More social media commentary on Jason's programs:

Jackie Wong on Twitter: "Quick reaction time: With the prerequisite that I generally really like his free skates too, I have come to the conclusion that Jason Brown is really a master of short programs. @ me"

Jordan from OnIce Perspectives said in the IG comments to the SP, "Oh we’re shooting this and I already know how 😉"

Jordan needs to get himself back into Canada, pronto(y)

Both before and after Jordan entered Canada, he said that he would be there for three months. He also had indicated early on that "Toronto" was in his plans (as well as Montreal).
So I think Jason will be in luck, as will we. :)


Has it been mentioned in this thread that Tracy Wilson and Rob McCall had an FD to "Slaughter"?

Which I learned today on Twitter, from a wise person ;) who gave a link to the video.
(I am trying not to steal the person's thunder.)

Jordan is in Canada and has been filming at the Ice Academy of Montreal. He shot their I.AM.LIVE event on September 11th. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long before Jason's programs receive the full On Ice Perspectives treatment!

I am quite excited to see these two programs. Those snippets are so teasing! I hope it is true that Jason will be in the competition where the video will be released at 11am on Tuesday (or overnight for me). I can hardly wait to see them!

I'm not familiar with either piece so I had to Youtube them. The SP is hands-down going to be the fastest one of any skater at all this season. It'll easily be one of the most intense ones too. I really hope they don't use that section that is super repetitive, but I think it has huge potential. Of course, when the program is that super fast, the potential for things to go wrong is also pretty high, but I have every confidence in Jason.

The Slaughter piece - if I had known this piece, this is exactly what I would have wanted Jason to skate to. I can't wait to see it!

I recall seeing Balanchine’s Slaughter on TV back in the 1960’s with Suzanne Farrell and Arthur Mitchell .. the interracial dancers caused quite a stir. Arthur Mitchell was a wonderful dancer - as was Suzanne Farrell. In her autobiographical film, The Elusive Muse, Mr. Mitchell offered amusing insights as they were training to dance their roles; he said Suzanne was a great ballerina but was used to more ethereal roles so he got her to loosen up a bit and “work it” for her role as a lady of the night!
He also said Balanchine was always always supportive of him as a dancer and artist. As for the music, I believe there are lovely cello passages there.. wonder if this finds its way into Jason’s FS. Really really looking forward to this!!
Farrell was, is and always will be my favorite dancer. I saw her on stage later in her career in the early 70s and she was always absolutely fantastic. It will be interesting to see what Jason and Wilson have done with it.

Honestly I was rather 😳🤔🙄 about the music for the new SP. Then I googled the recording artist Nina Simone, whose name I only vaguely remembered seeing somewhere, and nothing more. I found out she was black, and was very active in civil rights movement. Remembering how Jason was vocal about BLM movement this summer, it suddenly made much more sense. If he has to keep up that pace in the snippet, he ought to have done a whole lot of cardio, though! Not that I would expect anything less from him 😁

I didn't know that! Tracy may even have suggested it.

He spent his quarantine working out, taking dance classes and cooking dinner for his family. All he was missing was ice time and his training buddies. The speed in those clips was awesome and a little scary. That's good! Can't wait to see there!

I had that thought too, that the choice of a black artist was deliberate.

The ISP Challenge videos will be put up overnight my time. I fully expect to wake up to the Fan Fest thread letting me know if Jason is in them and what timestamps. ;)

Jason will be phenomenal no doubt!! “OT”: Ms. Farrell is a marvel and lived her art on her own terms.. gave of herself without measure. Did you see her autobiographical film “The Elusive Muse”? Well worth viewing.. includes her exquisite dream sequence solo from Don Quixote

I, too, thought this choice might be related to his feelings about the BLM and issues that surfaced this summer.

Nathan Chen's SP and FS were submitted to the ISP Challenge, and right at the very end were the current standings, including Jason's scores. Jason's SP score was 94.51 and puts him currently in second place, nine points below Nathan and 12 points above Tomoki Hiwatashi who is currently in third. Great SP score for Jason and probably roundabout his max without a quad.
The FS video for Nathan cut off before showing the standings so not sure about that - also haven't been able to find anything of Jason's on US Fanzone yet.

They're not up yet... someone had leaked Nathan's videos to youtube, but the others weren't available (at this time... they will probably be up on USFSA later today). Apparently at least in the SP, Nathan was last in the skating order (I guess Jason's "skate last" mojo doesn't work in virtual competition) so the final SP results were at the end of that specific video.
