  1. All time shows: Carolina Crown

    Could you explain why you dislike 2009? Just curious as I think that's one of their most musical brass books, which is something you've been critical of other crown shows, even ones you listed that you liked.
  2. Cadets 2018

    Yeah what I took from that post was "Let Hopkins sink his own ship." What kind of business model is "The boss is ruthless, uncooperative, and unreasonable so don't work with him if you're not ready to be treated like garbage." The problem is this is going to hurt The Cadets and YEA as there places to work with just as much success and that will treat you well. Like Boston.
  3. Cadets 2018

    This. 100 percent. His work overload and stress are resultant of his own inability to not micromanage literally everything. He and his organizations would have so much more success if he could leave stuff to other people to take care of instead of just throwing more hard work and stress at the problem. It's interesting how you can see his faults are reflected in The Cadets own problems.
  4. Blue Devils 2018

    I'm more impressed that he was with the Blue Devils for that many seasons. You must be beyond proud.

    At this point gold isn't even a win for BD, it's their standard. Now a three-peat...
  6. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    Eh just seems like another scapegoat to fire when the cadets start to suffer competitively next season. I would so love to believe hell be given control over design but Hopkins has shown through his actions time after time what he envisons will be on the field.
  7. When did halftime get hijacked?

    The other teams blow up helmet.
  8. When did halftime get hijacked?

    Well the high school I went to did both. Played the spirited dance song during halftime for the dancers and played fun tunes almost non stop during the game. Even had a group who learned a show specifically for half-time entertainment. Can't see why a band can't get some practice for performing their show in front of a audience in exchange for all pf that. Perhaps it's worse off where you live Stu.
  9. When did halftime get hijacked?

    When Football teams get the majority of funding from school districts compared to the arts, then the LEAST a marching band can get is11 f###### minutes to perform their show. If you don't like the show go buy nachos or take a ####. That's what most people do during halftime anyway.

    Also it was the first time in a good while since they medaled. But yeah any corps that people think can knock the Blue Devils out of first are hailed as the saviors of dci. I swear some people can't get over competitive bias and just enjoy some shows.
  11. It's a reference to a movie sequel called Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo. It's a pop culture thing to add "electric boogaloo" to sequels of things, in this case the recurring topic of G7. And electronics is a pun based off the common use and complaints of electronics used in DCI these days. Isn't the joke that much funnier now that I've explained it
  12. Staff Merry-go-round 2018 Edition

    Maybe because we want to see if there's any staff changes?
  13. Staff Merry-go-round 2018 Edition

    I think we all defend our favorite corps to a certain extent. Regardless of what some grown ups did does that mean you should wish a whole organization to fail? I think that's incredibly petty and ridiculous. So no, its not FUN to wish disappointment and failure on 150 kids who had nothing to do with some scandal and are just trying to do what they love. Feel free to think whatever you want about those involved.

    Uniform wise for next year I would love to see the second uniform from 2017 with a slightly modernized shako. I thought it really captured the classic Cadets look in a modern style.
  15. Cadets 2018

    Talk like this is why I really want The Cavaliers to medal next year.
