  1. I'm in Northern Virginia and won't be going to Ohio at all. Maybe I can Next Day Fed Ex.
  2. I have 2 tickets available...GREAT seats. In the $40 section. I had to cancel going. I don't know if it's too late to get them to someone, but just thought I'd let you all know. How can I get these to someone?
  3. I have two tickets available for the Massilon, Ohio show. Please let me know ASAP. I guess I would have to Fed Ex them?
  4. Who gets to decide what good "performance art" and "theatrical character" is...and does that make it ok for teenagers to be showcased in this way. I think if my daughter were up there I might ask her to put a robe on. Well, let's not help the dirty men out any...let's do them any favors.
  5. Oh ok. That makes it ok then.
  6. Is anyone concerned about this? I'm not trying to be a prude...but we do have minors in the activity...and I'm sure even ...I know sex sells, but I didn't come to watch a lust filled cabaret. These women are fairly young. Am I crazy, or are the dad's of these girls cool with this?
  7. If we can have sexual innuendo in shows and wicked games, sensuality, killings, etc. I think we can put up with "let us pray" and a confessional. Let's be wary of becoming religophobes.
  8. Crown's hats this year are certainly unique. Does anyone think they look too big? They look like they are too big for the marchers' heads.
  9. All these reports about Bluecoats' show make me feel pretty, pretty, prettaaay good.
  10. Ok, what do people think? Does Crown have a chance to win this year with this show? If it's light on GE, is that going to hurt them (esp. going up against hyper-GE Bluecoats?) Let's get real here...what is this show likely to place?
  11. Show is very well done.

  13. GREAT! Can't wait.
  14. Initially, my impressions of this show are less than enthusiastic. But I feel like this show might grow on me. It could turn out to be brilliant. Kind of like Bluecoats Kinetic...that show was at first..."what the heck is going on?" And then later "WOW, that's brilliant." But concerns about this show...1) HATE the ethereal nails on a chalkboard 2) The closer seems weak. Except for the musical demands, "there's no interesting WOW moment..." visually. It's just park and blow it seems at the end. It doesn't seem to have that, "You've GOT to see this! interesting drill maneuver or exciting general effect." Leave the audience wanting more visually. Like in Kinetic ... the color guard member being lifted up on the sphere thing. Something.
  15. From Wikipedia: While encompassing a broad range of ideas, postmodernism is typically defined by an attitude of skepticism, irony or distrust toward grand narratives, ideologies and various tenets of universalism, including objective notions of reason, human nature, social progress, moral universalism, absolute truth, and objective reality. Need I say more? This is too much of what drum corps has become.
