  1. Today
  2. The George Hopkins scandal and subsequent DCI reforms spun to prominence in the wake of the Me Too movement, itself sparked by revelations last fall against legendary movie producer Harvey Weinstein, so I think it's worth noting that Weinstein will surrender to police tomorrow on charges of rape. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/05/24/614270727/harvey-weinstein-will-turn-himself-in-on-rape-sexual-assault-charges

    The Cavaliers 2018, 70 years of excellence

    Well...I've heard it all...but again, I'm a Popcorn Eating Parent...and my son would have to hold the staff back from killing me if I revealed anything...so he could in turn kill me himself. I'm sure they'll announce something soon...like maybe on 6/21
  4. I'm excited about the show myself...I wonder when will we get the repertoire
  5. Who's on first?

    Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    The Instagram story seems to match the aggressive reports. Out of context, it gives me a Cadets 2011 “demons” entrance vibe. It looks like the color guard (and hornline?) rehearsing some crawling body stuff to some intense drumline beats! Super interesting vibe! If only I could screen record it to share what I’m seeing.

    Your favorite All-Time DCI Year

    I'm going off memory but either VK or BD winked. I'm leaning towards BD. As for my favorite year, 1989 hands down. I remember watching Phantom Regiment and just sitting there speechless. VK and Bluecoats were fun. The top 5 was phenomenal. I have tried so hard to appreciate SCV's win and I wouldn't even put them in the top 3. If I was to rank 1989: 1. Phantom Regiment 2. Garfield Cadets 3. Cavaliers 4. Santa Clara Vanguard 5. Blue Devils

    Your favorite All-Time DCI Year

    1992 -- It was my first exposure of the activity, watching the finals top 12 Dci shows on VHS. I fell inlove with BD and been , 2ndly Cavies and 3rdly Cadets. I wasn't into Star at the time, it's in the 2008 to 2010 I actually start paying attention to what was Star of Indiana. And really enjoyed SCV. 2008 overal loved every show 2014 Bd feliniesque the best overall show desgn that apeases to the fans, Bc tilt was just so good and inovative... 2016 -- Its obvious BC first win ever I was very happy for them, enjoyed the show too.... Another year where I enjoyed every show. And Yes last year 2017 I enjoyed, California year Bd was so mesmerizing and Scv was really aswesome and back in top two for in such a longtime. It was a year either liked, loved or, despised (lol) for some many different reasons from different corps based on show design choices and drastic uniforms changes. Manderings was on the hunt to making top 12 while Madison actually fought to be back in the top 12, while Cavies overtake the defendant champion on the final night. Those were the years for me.
  9. That too, but at a minimum DCI needs to start taking its oversight role seriously and not just pretend like their hands are tied. That includes setting up a mechanism to allow reporting directly to DCI. I understand that DCI is governed by its member corps. That’s how almost every organization of its type is structured (e.g., NCAA, NFL, ETC.). If it’s true that the member corps won’t step up and give DCI some teeth to police this kind of stuff, things are far worse than I ever imagined.

    the new list of Class A

    It was very much a "run whatcha brung" era from about 8th place down.

    My guess- "You worked hard today, we got a lot done, keep it up. Now relax, wash up, have some chow, and get ready to be great tonight."

    Blue Devils 2018

    All I can say for the 1:48 I heard and saw they are starting out the show with a combination of totally out there and familiar. I love it when BD does shows that make you have to dig around to find the meaning. The Music I heard is real intense and dark! the battery is on fire!

    2018 Predictions

    That's because I goofed. "Carpe Noctem" placed 3rd. Fixed.

    Agreed. That overhang makes it LOUD. Chester and Allentown are a couple days apart (so they're easily comparable) and I couldn't believe the sound difference
