  1. I had pretty much forgotten about the Glassmen shows over the years...until DrumManTx brought them up here in one of his listings. The Glassmen had several shows that I enjoyed.. and '98 was an overall well coordinated one from them I thought as well.
  2. All time shows: Blue Stars

    Favorites..... 76 2008 .." Le Tour " 2009.... " The Factory " Least Favorite...... 2013... " Voodoo "
  3. Phantom Regiment 2018

    I'll be interested in how improved the Guard scores might be this season. now that Phantom has returned to a Coed Guard format..
  4. I'd be interested in reading what yours are when you have it for us too, DrumManTx.
  5. Cadets 2018

    Care to repost a single solitary post from anyone on DCP that ever stated herre on DCP that " the Cadets 2017 show will manifest intself in mass defections from Allentown" ? Its bogus. You won't find it. it exists only in your cynical, jaded mind. Time to get a new narrative to push, as this one you are simply making up on here. The world does not revolve around the Cadets, GH, and their alums/. fans. Most Drum corps fans wish the Cadets well. There is no hoping the Cadets fail in most quarters, including here on DCP. Most focus on their own Corps hoped for success, my friend.
  6. Cadets 2018

    Is this a" Cadets 2018 " thread discussion, or some previous year's Cadets thread for venting and discussion ? Methinks its become the latter of late with lots of complaints and finger pointings about recent Cadets underperformances. Any chance this thread can be put back to a more forward looking discussion of " The Cadets 2018", or is this perhaps asking for too much here on this thread ?
  7. What you want for 2018

    I hope for all the Corps and fans for the summer of 2018 when they come to a fork in the road, they'll do as Yogi Berra once recommended and.... " take it ".
  8. Boston Crusaders 2018

    Look forward to seeing You and Hubby there too. I'm driving 3, maybe 4 of us. We'll be real easy to identify, Terri. Just look for 3 or 4 outstandingly handsome guys walking together that look like they could be on the cover of GQ,, and that'll more than likely be us.
  9. What you want for 2018

    A floMarching season where their live broadcasts don't have tech issues that force me to curse with some very naughty words and have my family march me strait upstairs for some needed soap time as my punishment. So if you're reading this Flo, don't make me wind up like his Nibs :
  10. What you want for 2018

    A season of no shows being cancelled due to rain and/ or thunder & lightning.
  11. What you want for 2018

    Less Corps performances where I turn to the people in my group and say" Boy, they were great !". Then they turn ask me"" But what was their show all about ? ".. and I give my standard reply.... " I don't have a freakin' clue ".
  12. SCV, BD, Boston, Bluecoats, Mandarins all about equally, and each for different reasons.
  13. Cadets 2018

    Ya, in retrospect I kind of mixed the Sweet & Low in with the Sugar and put 'em both in the same jar so to speak, when they both are not the same. That was unfair to you. I take it back.
  14. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Enjoy your summer of Drum Corps as well, CorpsRelic. I'm looking forward to seeing what The Academy has in store for us fans this summer for their show. I generally enjoy their productions, rarely dissapointed. New unis this summer ? I'm guessing with the trend in Unis. head gear etc to be more and more theme specific these days in DCI now, that'll probably be in store too.
  15. Pioneer doubling their brass line it appears.... good job, guys and gals !!
  16. Cadets 2018

    Interesting take.
  17. Cadets 2018

    This thread confuses me now too as I could have sworn that Xandandl and dans did not want this thread topic to be about anything else but the Cadets 2018 and got very,.. VERY.. annoyed less than a week ago when other Corps or non Cadets 2018 discussions were brought into a discussion on this thread. Was I perhaps dreaming ?
  18. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Thats nothing new however, imo. Every season now the Couchmen produces a show that puts most of us to sleep.
  19. Ya, always thought there was more to this story than Natalie dying via an " accidental drowning "
  20. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Rumors today come from a variety of sources..... from those who attended camps.... from DCP...... from Reddit ( and the Sub Reddit )..... from facebook..... from Instagram.....from twitter..... from MM's secretly sharing info with others..... from word of mouth..... and some are simply bogus and made up rumors to cause trouble or mischief or whatever. Because Corps are now secretive like never before, in the absence of good info, something else is made to fill that vacuum. and what fills that vacuum now are rumors. And rumors, by their very nature run the gamut from excellent, very good, to bad, to excessive hyperbole, to outright worthless and/ or completely bogus. But in todays Drum Corps era, in the off season, in the main, rumors are all we fans really have.
  21. Boston Crusaders 2018

    As was mentioned earlier today on another DCP thread, congratulations to Melissa " Mely " Salguero who was chosen as " Grammy Educator Of The Year " at the Grammy Awards last nite. She's an Educator Giant. She is also a Boston Crusaders Giant, having marched the Boston Crusaders ( mellophone ) in her youth. Here is another article on her below. This is not only an honor for her, her school, her students, and the Boston Crusaders. its also uplifting to see what can be in store for those who march today in Drum Corps and can dream of making this world a little bit better world when they become full fledged adults in their own right some day. She is truly inspiring for the entire Drum Corps community, imo. People such as her can and do make a difference in this world. http://www.grammyintheschools.com/features/meet-2018-music-educator-award-winner-melissa-salguero

    You guys must've decided awhile back not to take this lying down anymore, so you turned the tables on them.
  23. Cadets 2018

    That line could help get you elected President. Oh wait..... never mind..... forget I said it.
