  1. TAT's work with Mao was awful. Little choreo between the elements and music choices that didn't suit Mao during the two most important seasons of the quad. She was betting everything on the step sequences, which were always good i have to give her that. Morozov was to her what Gleikhengauz is to Eteri. Just that Gleikhengauz gets more credit. I give a special point to choreographers able to make good choreos in all categories. And Morozov did that. Unlike Wilson for example. ETA: Sayuri was made by Lori. Easily one of the best programs. Linked firedance, miss saïgon and invierno porteno.
  2. After reading your post i have to say that i give more value to Wilson's work than before. I see him a bit differently. It's obvious that he's/was a CoP genius given how Yuna was able to get the points that others couldn't. HOWEVER, imo, he's not 2nd after Lori. I give Lori the first place too because she created some iconic programs, has longevity on top, still does some good things, even if she lacks innovation. But Wilsob is not that good, mostly consistently good to put him in 2nd place. First the only program that you talked about and i can call masterpiece is the lark ascending. The kind of program where everything is in place, you don't see how those 4min went so fast. Skated cleanly, it's the only program of that quad that i would give 70+ in PCS. Clearly superior to Gershwin. Chaplin is close to a masterpiece too but i'm not totally convinced. The other masterpiece that i would give to him is danse macabre. That's all. Clearly he was inspired with only one or two skaters. While there are other choreographers who deliver with many skaters each season. I put easily Tom Dickson above him. You said that Wilson quickly created programs that fit perfectly the coP. But there is this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwjm3fiTidjhAhWDSRUIHdczDlkQwqsBMAB6BAgEEAU&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov That's Dickson's work. Created in 2005-2006 when Yuna was junior (she recycled) And i think it's one of the best tango de Roxanne for many people. I think his muse is Satoko Miyahara since he delivers everytime he does choreo for her. These are masterpieces https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwij6_-bi9jhAhXOVBUIHXxnAHIQwqsBMAJ6BAgGEBA&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwjN0Nuui9jhAhWZUxUIHfzSAl0QwqsBMAB6BAgHEAU&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwiZh83Ii9jhAhVTShUIHXE_AgQQwqsBMAN6BAgHEBM&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov And of course he did a senior program for Rika Kihira this season https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwig5ZGDjdjhAhXF66QKHYhbBxUQwqsBMAB6BAgHEAU&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov Not the junior one that Wilson did. He has mostly less "prestigious" (by that i mean skaters who don't win world or olympic titles) clients. So maybe that's why he gets less recognition i guess. Nikolai Morozov is often forgotten (maybe because he's not so liked). He made some good things like this for Volosozhar/Trankov https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwid2-3zkNjhAhUWVRUIHcedBpgQwqsBMAd6BAgEECU&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov&cshid=1555538824833 Or this for Ilinykh/Katsalapov https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=%23&ved=2ahUKEwifl_HqktjhAhVLzKQKHb2HAtcQwqsBMAZ6BAgDECI&usg=AOvVaw0VTJzWxrN8ZFOD4xbU2nov Shae despite being "new" has enough good work to challenge Wilson even if she can't go above him for now. Seimei and Skyfall are jewels.
  3. Already almost one billion given to rebuild notre dame, in just two days. It's great, but if the same thing was done for others things more human (i don't know, children starved around the world, natural disaster...) it would be greater.
  4. David Wilson is second? Interesting. Why?
  5. Well, it won't be bad like her tango at least. Maybe she wanted to to do more warhorses when she was with Eteri.
  6. Well, nothing fresh so far. IMO, Medvedeva's SP will be choreographed by Misha Ge. That's the kind of songs he likes to work on. I can see her doing good enough on that music since it isn't that different than everything she's done so far. But i think that skating on memoirs of a geisha is a bad bad idea. I can't see how she can skate beautifully on that music. Imo her skills are not yet at a level where she can do justice to that music. I won't be surprised if she changes her music choice. I even bet it will happen.
  7. I wonder if they will be able to save the building.
  8. Well, people give so much importance to everything they say. Their 100 people lists are like gospel truth.
  9. At this point, in a sport where reputation are 50% of the finak mark, it's just idiocy. Or they don't care about winning.
  10. I'm just amazed at how Japanese media like to bash their own skaters.
  11. In 2016 USA helded a competition like WTT but instead of countries it was continents competing against each others. I forgot the name. The only thing i remember is the super overscoring, Shoma landing the first 4F and breaking 100 and 200 for the first time. And Shizuka was the captain of team Asia. It was once in a life thing and ISU ditched this competition or do they plan to organize it again? Chen was not senior yet. Too bad for USA, he would have been the first to break 350.
  12. I just wrote that she was worlds medal worthy, not that she would have won one.
  13. Liza showed that she was world medal worthy too. Nice that despite the fact that fed robbed her, she didn't lose her motivation. A fighter.
