    and a few good size hills and valleys... in Ohio you might even call them mountains.
  2. yes as usual you can't enter a discussion of varying viewpoints without getting emotional and in your own words "twist" ing that. I am thinking of Oriental music and dance even beyond what was done by Seattle Imperials and Cavaliers. African and South American approaches music and visuals. Scandinavian and Swiss militarism and precision, not just the pseudo-ballet we are getting from wanna-bees who haven't made it on their own.
  3. if it were just progression and not WGI dictates, why have DCI corps not fielded other approaches than just WGI? I think you have drunk so of the WGI koolaid that you can't experience other possible tastes.

    Stagehands or Performers?

    which is exactly what Gaines has become used to with his Japanese units.

    When does Jon Bilby, the master visual cleaner, arrive?
  6. he's hoping that a certain sixth place corps repeats the 2008 pattern. :-)
  7. Performances in the previous century were programmed for crowd reactions. When Michael Cesario was program director with the Cadets in the mid-80's, he'd actually write on the show script and music book: "And the crowd goes Wild!!!" (Saw it myself several times.) This century, shows have become "art" and we don't interrupt the artist until the program is completed. Might miss those subtle electronic voice-overs thrown at us, the suicide that occurs on the back forty, the hanging on the lower front, or the stark silence the "artistic director" wants us to "experience" in isolation and solitary bleakness in his black clad doom-and-gloom dark shows that have become too common. Case of major depression at work if you ask me.

    I think 777hornman's real name is M. Anderson.

    Well Anderson really doesn't like Cadets as a Judge...duh. 12-11-12 on Viz analysis sheet. If he had what the corps had been averaging place wise, score would have been much higher. This corresponds to the GE marks given by the same judge the other night. Carrying some baggage is he? Time for Mr. Carlson to step in.

    heck, Downey is even older than me. I still remember him when he soloed for SMITHTOWN Freelancers before he found his fountain of youth in Cali.
