  1. Just ordered my Blu-Rays, despite the edits, and despite the less-than-stellar year, programmatically, and despite the $139.42 with tax and shipping. Why? Because, ######, I love drum corps and this is my main way of supporting it. Plus, SCV in high resolution audio / video! Come at me, mellos!
  2. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    "Italian designer" does not readily bring to mind visions of efficiency.
  3. Cadets 2018

    Well, an hour hand and a minute hand.

    "De rigueur" means trendy and fashionable. Perhaps you meant "passé"? Or "gauche"? Or "superannuated?"
  5. Full-field tarp?

    Cool idea, though a totally white field makes interval and form errors pop out like neon. Solution? Use totally white uniforms too!
  6. I gotta say, if a corps gets thrown off by an errant soloist, they are doing something wrong.
  7. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    I could make a further distinction: pre- and post-Gail Royer shows. Gail was the force that developed the musicals, the pageantry and the "semi-classical" shows. After his passing in 1992, SCV gradually moved into the more austere, modern and less sentimental kinds of shows. They have floated back and forth between these styles ever since. I loved Gail's influence and tastes, but I am very happy with SCV's current musical direction.
  8. Yes, my mellophones, yes!
  9. Those are tactical assault bugles. They cost $1million apiece.
  10. SCV 2017 - 50 Years of Class

    As much as I would love to see it, wearing aussies for the last shows of the year is a terrible idea. Doing so would affect the marching members' carriage, head placement and vision, and they would not have time to adjust to the changes. This would lead to deleterious impact on intervals and lines of sight. Maybe FloMarching can add a virtual reality feature that digitally adds aussies. How about it, Flo?
  11. TV Bando Drumline thing

    Can DCI provide pre-recorded footage of the corps competing in the show? Would the station accept this? Better than nothing.

    SCV keeping up with BD, me likes! (And yes, I know, different shows, blah blah blah). And Boston, just 0.1 behind SCV in brass, impressive! SCV, clean that brass, my friends, it may be the difference between #1 and #2 this year.
  13. Pioneers need our help

    I donated! Good luck Pioneer!
  14. TOC - Broken Arrow, OK - July 18

    If memory serves, BD was first to perform two years in a row at TOC in DeKalb, 2014 and 2015. They still won both times.
  15. I was wondering who that bearded guy hanging around practice was!
