  1. And I find this hilarious because when I first read your post I thought, what the heck is A Star is Born? Lol. Like I haven't heard that frickin' music for forever this past year... and yet, whish!!!! already out of my head, lol. It hasn't been played as much the last few weeks so I guess my mind was taking a break from it until the figure skating season begins....
  2. I looked it up... it has dustin hoffman, alan rickman... under what rock was my head when this came out? Esp with such a memorable premise... Sounds perfect for a young teenager to skate to (not! )... but this camp has also had some other questionable choices for young girls...
  3. I have never heard of that movie (but I dont see that many anyway)... so figure skating opens my ears once again... and, well, at least it isn't a warhorse!!
  4. It is a vicious circle. We hear he has to be either off the ice for 2-3 months/or needs rehab for 2-3 months, and then we see him skating/jumping after only a short time... and then we find out he hasn't completely healed... and then he has to take more time off... the only time he really took time off from shows was after his foot injury in 2016. I was really hoping he'd skip it all this summer, to be honest. But, he is who he is so all I can do is smile/shake my head, hope he enjoys himself and that it all works out best for him in the end... and of course I"ll be watching, as much a fan as ever, eager for every little thing :)
  5. Yes, he was there. Lots of people have trained there over the years. I think Liz Manley is the skating director there right now... I think we saw this year that Stephen left Brian to work with Lee more this season because Brian had to spend more time with Med since she was having trouble coping with the independent style of training... at least that's what I got from interviews with Brian... so now we'll have to see what happens with Stephen... could be that this is a good time to make a change. Sometimes you just need a change if you have been in the same place since you were a wee kiddo.
  6. I read a rumour that Lee has taken a job at the Granite Club, another very old private club in Toronto... interesting. They probably want to rebuild their skating program too, so if true, then his skaters will probably go with him... I wonder about Stephen...there are rumours on TSL that he's going to Raf... very interesting. I actually think that's a good move, if true. Anyway, if all this is true then there might be some openings at TCC for some new students....
  7. Oh, wow, about Barkell.... unexpected... I wonder where he is going... is he staying in the GTA (greater toronto area)... or going far away?
  8. Sendai planning was probably in the works before Yuzu's injury... perhaps no announcement is him torn between needing to rest but wanting to perform in his home city... either way, great for Sendai to have FaOI come since it seems they rarely get shows/skating of this level to go there.
  9. Didnt he do talk shows between each stop last year? Is there only 1 this year?
  10. The music where the Night King is approaching Bran is called the Night King, so if that's the music you liked then that's what she's using... I loved that part and yes, I am already a fan no matter what!!
  11. Watched episode 3 of Game of Thrones... totally mesmerized.... and that music as the Night King heads towards Bran... awesome stuff.. hopefully someone skates to it someday ... dramatic, nuanced, building to the end... love it. I am in love with that show and the music is brilliant. I don't get HBO so I watched clips on YT at 4am just before I got up for work.... couldn't focus all day... and now I"m exhausted and want to go to bed but I have to finish my taxes by midnight tomorrow.... and pay them!! mOre chocolate and cherrry coke on tap....
  12. Haha... that's what gave him the *edge* tee hee. i remember reading Yuzu saying after his first competition with Patrick *years ago* that he was following behind him on the ice at practice and he just could not skate like Patrick could, something about how he used the edges and knees. He said he could do it for a short time, but couldn't do it for longer. Say what you will about Patrick, but how he touches the blades to the ice is just one of a kind... or, at least, it's not something you see anymore since the focus is different now and really you don't have many who can teach it... which is why I always hope Patrick does end up coaching young ones one day, to pass on that secret/skill... Well, Med probably learned a lot this tour if she did notice the skills of the *old timers* ... all 3 of those men are world champions and known for their feet....
  13. I am looking forward to the next season for T/M... I haven't loved everything marina has done over the years, but she certainly worked wonders with G/G, D/W and early versions of V/M. I hope she can bring out the best in a team that has all the talent you could ever want, but lacks engaging packaging...
  14. I was thinking the same thing about Brian. In shorts!!
  15. I don't drink coffee... iced or otherwise... and now those iced capps are 2.70 where I live!!! My addiction hurts my waste and wallet. And I think cutting myself off would save me at the most $500/year... nice, but not exactly enough to finance any competition. Travel to Kelowna is way expensive (might as well go to europe), and while Montreal is close, tickets are too expensive. For me it has to be ACI all the way.
