I want Cheese.... more cheese... EXTRA cheese, thank you very much.
"I want it all...
I want it all.....
I want it now !! " ( with apologies to Freddie Mercury, Queen. )
I could not agree more..... more cheese please!!!!!
As a matter of fact aren't there some corps from the great state of Wisconsin?
Just imagine the intro.
"Presenting their program.....A Symphony in the key of Gouda....from Cheddar, Wisconsin..... The Blue Cheeses!!!!!
As you can see I try not to get too serious before the season actually starts.

My point is...wait until you see/hear the product before stating a show concept cant win a title because it isnt serious. If I remember correctly many on this board thought that Crown should of won the title in'09....but tinkerbell on a drum major stand isnt cheesy? On the other hand, I thought the Cadets '10 Toy Souldier sounded like a cool concept until I saw Little Jeffey and well,.....need I say more.
Don't forget the judges sheets are changing this summer as well, so I don't think it's a bad idea for the Cavies to play the crowd.
There are seven selections in the Cavies rep this summer, to the extent in which each is used, we shall soon find out. Who knows Paparazzi could be 30 seconds.
I do agree with one thing though...I think this is shaping up to be a great year for drum corps.
Fanboy Much? How was the "tinkerbell" cheesy? and Little Jeffery was the SOUL in Toy SOULDIER.... its not cheese if its the story line.

It had its moments.
Absolutely it was.
The question is: Why does it matter? Drum corps is almost entirely cheese. But since we're such an insular community we've deluded ourselves into thinking that only certain aspects of drum corps are cheesy (like "Tinkerbell on a podium") and that the absolute cheesiest aspects of drum corps - hilariously over-dramatic and over-designed "intellectual" shows - are in fact super serious and kewl.
It's all cheese. And it's almost all great. Cavies have selected a great repertoire, and should have an amazing show. It'll be at least a little cheesy . . . though I don't think the Lady Gaga will make it so (not a fan, but I don't understand the hate . . . I also don't understand why drum corps fans think pop music always = cheesy).

The fact you can read this question with a straight face, TERRIFIES the old school drum corps guy in me.
My posts are in no way endorsed or supported by General_tsos_chicken2. I am sarcastic, rarely serious, negative, blunt, and not afraid to step on Corps loyalty. If you are offended by my posts, turn off your computer and walk away. The internet is obviously too big of a jungle for you!

You'll laugh at me for jumping on this, but it should be "could have"
instead of "could of".

I had to use "Tinkerbell" because that's what he used. Since you obviously think it is oh so funny, explain how its cheesy.
