  1. All time shows: Phantom Regiment

    1. 1993...another week and they would have presented a huge challenge to Cadets and Star 2. dog has fleas! Only complaint about this show was that third soprano hanging a release right before the final push!! 3. 1991...the is purest form of Phantom Regiment 4. 2008...the will power the performers had was awesome 5. I wish they had stayed with Rosander 6. 1989...closer gives me chills every time. ride cymbal just makes me cringe and I'm a brass guy Honorable mentions...basically 2003-2007 + 1995....really loved this show but it gets no love since the top 4 was a blood bath and no behind them was even close. least favorite staff must have gone on a bender after 2008 was not even worthy of semi finals...performance level kept them in did this manage to get sandwiched between 1991 & 1993. Understand the concept but just never worked anything post 2012...
  2. Would not mind seeing the Cavies continue with the cheese for another summer and do a show called "Science!" It would be awesome to see some Thomas Dolby on the field...
  3. The Cadets thread would be 95% shorter if there was another dedicated trolling George Hopkins.

  5. All time shows: Blue Devils

    Off topic question but I wonder if the brass ge tape for 1992 finals was ever made public...would love to hear those comments during When a Man Loves a Woman.
  6. All time shows: Blue Devils

    1 - 1993 best horn book and performance ever...very underrated visual program 2 - 1988 classy, classy, classy 3 - 1992 some early 90s visual cheese but you cannot go wrong with Big, Bad, and Blue 4 - 2009 knew this was the winner and would break 99 from my first viewing...kept getting better from there 5 - 2014 flawless design and execution. I liked 2009 more...personal tastes 6 - 1994 vintage BD...everything was so aggresive 7 - 1999 another vintage BD where there is really nothing to dislike...only issues was it ran into a godizilla-esque SCV rampage on finals night 8 - 2003 one of my favorite overall musical packages in DCI...just so cool 9 - 2001 not a fan favorite but musically & visually this was so different for BD at the time plus it was so #### clean...judging sheets with derived achievement was not in their favor at time 10 - 1991 musically this show was at least a decade ahead of its time....percussion ugh.... Least favorite...2005 "don't forget to call your mother"
  7. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    For any corps not in blue the working title is "A Corps of a Different Color"
  8. Will Christopher Walken be giving swimming lessons to the new Maria?
  9. Sad that I missed those hornlines from 96-98 at Magic. We were still solid in 1999 but the quality of sound those lines could put out on those ancient mismatched horns speaks volume to the talent that was there.
  10. Most corps suck at doing a dark theme is a high school from nearly 20 years ago inspired by Orwell's 1984 novel...this is how you do a dark show.

    ...too soon for Spanish Flu jokes? Sorry for your family's loss.
  12. Cadets 2018

    Cannot wait for 1919 when they commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Flu! I hear the show will be called "Last Man Standing..."
  13. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    Finally a good opportunity to recycle the cow from 1996....
  14. Take your pick from 1993: Phantom - fire of eternal glory Cadets - On a Hymn Song of Philip Bliss Madison - Strawberry Soup Blue Devils - entire show...might be the best horn book ever in DCI Star - Medea's Dance of Vengeance
