  1. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    I noticed that too. Guard was coming along with the best ever in 2017. They fielded their strongest overall visual product ever too IMO, cleanest for sure.

    He spent all of one season and did such a great job. Sad to see him go.

    I know! I just read his bio on the OC website. What's up with that?
  4. 2017 DCI survey

    Sounds like the story of my life!
  5. 2017 DCI survey

    Last time I was in Indy was 2014 and I remember Ram but couldn't tell you the other places I ate. Actually all I did at Ram was get growlers of beer...lol. I do remember eating multiple times at an Italian restaurant near Ram. But it doesn't matter because I didn't receive this apparently very uppity survey either. Would be happy to fill one out though. Seems to me DCI would be well served to hear from not only current championships ticket holders but recent past ones as well.
  6. Whether or not it is relatable to drum corps, I will definitely watch it just because I'm interested. Thanks OP for bringing it to my attention.
  7. You know you're a drum corps nerd when every time you see anything that even hints of pageantry - in any form of media - you think, that would look great in a show! You know you're a drum corps nerd when you immediately make a mental brass arrangement out of a catchy snippet of music you're pretty sure you haven't heard any corps do. You know you're a drum corps nerd when it is early September and you're still looking at DCP.
  8. By the decades

    Great thread. As a fan since 2010, I can only contribute to the latest decade but love hearing about the old favorites. I've seen vids of some of them but just don't feel informed enough to choose favorites. I know OP said only one but it's a tie I can't break: 2016 Bluecoats - the primer on modern drum corps and the direction it could go 2017 Blue Devils - special, moving, brimming with content, SO well performed
  9. Yes! But not just the obvious ones. One of my favorite high energy symphonic pieces of all time is 'The Ride to Dubno' or 'Ride of the Cossacks' written by Franz Waxman for the 1962 movie Taras Bulba. I looked at DCX/Corpsreps and saw that Madison used something from the overture in their show (haven't checked the show out yet) which may or may not have included elements of Dubno. In any case, it is a piece and soundtrack with a TON of low hanging fruit. Just great stuff. A LOT of good music from the movies - new and old. Rich place to dig.
  10. I love that story. It serves as an allegory of the fundamentally different mindsets of millenials vs. boomers/genX. It's just the world we live in. Ya roll with it or everything passes you by.
  11. That was my first experience with a BD head scratcher - seemed entirely too visually busy to me at the time - but I was still a total noob. I have learned so much since then. That's why I'd really like to go back and see it again, knowing what I know now about the organization and drum corps in general. I did fully appreciate Felliniesque and As Dreams were Made On though, while, admittedly, I'm blanking on the Rite of Spring show. Probably because I was so enamored with e=em2.
  12. Seriously, I'm like, maybe I should give those flying Cabaret Voltaire hoola hoops another look-see...
  13. I wanted to say 'an embarrassment to whom, exactly?' - but this pretty much says the same thing.
