  1. A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

    I love the wind band version of cloudburst... really thought it would be a good fit for SCV last year. Thought I would read it in their show announcement.

    Have we heard Godzilla eats Las Vegas yet? I know there was a ghost train a few years ago... ghost train is my favorite.
  3. A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

    Let's go with 2010 or later...and make it programmatic. Act 1: look for America (excerpts from) Act 2: Mad World ( Mad World and THIS IS MY RIFLE) Act 3: ...that one second (featuring Kaleidoscope of mathematics... because we never hear that one) Act 4: Inferno/Angels and demons/ the devils staircase mash up By the Boston Crusaders
  4. A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

    This was actually the first thing that came to mind for me. I wouldn't mind MacArthur Park either. Would love to see Madison do that again but I think the best corps to pull it off based on 2017 programs is the Bluecoats.
  5. 2018 Prediction Thread

    I am gonna do it. Competition has been heating up a lot over the past few years with what are now the top 6. I know this is ridiculous and off the wall but I would love a DCI where the top 6 or even 9 finish in an unpredictable order. 1. SCV 2. Bluecoats 3. Cavaliers 4. Blue Devils 5. Boston 6. Crown 7. BK 8. Phantom 9. Cadets 10. Madison 11. Academy 12. Blue Stars 13. Mandarins 14. Crossmen 15. Troopers 16. Colts 17. Oregon Crusaders 18. SOA 19. Music City (if they go world class) 20. Genesis 21. Jersey Surf 22. Pacific Crest 23. Cascades 24. Pioneer I will add explanations later... although I think it's a crapshoot at this point...and... really the Blue Devils are probably going to win again.

    I don't work in the field but I would think that announcing your own departure is probably discouraged and may jeopardize your relationship with the new corps. Retirement on the other hand is another story.
  7. It's hard to break down a <.05 difference. The largest gap of the scores that were Cavaliers over Bluecoats was the percussion. Not to take away from the Cavaliers...their percussion was very good this year. I was just trying to give insight as to why the Bluecoats weren't one of the top dogs in percussion this year. The front ensemble staging would be a season long issue. I am saying that if Bloo scored .05 higher in percussion (or any caption)they would have had 4th
  8. Looking at the recap it appears that in the end what really brought the Cavaliers ahead of the Bluecoats was percussion score. The Bluecoats have done excellent in percussion for a number of years and I tend to agree with and trust the percussion caption judges more than any other caption. When I was in Massillon I noticed some phasing in the front ensemble. Looking at their staging it's no wonder why. It was a cool visual effect for the jagged line but there is a reason why the front ensemble is always upfront and together. They were too spread out and it caused phasing issues.
  9. I saw music City Friday and said "that show is awesome I wouldn't be surprised if they moved up to world class next year" Glad to see they are trying to make that happen! What a great group!
  10. This thread already reminds me of the Cadets thread geesh. Also hoping to stay positive for 2018!
  11. May 2018 bring back a lot of talented members and a lot of new talent. May 2018 be another fan favorite and fantastic, fun show. May 2018 hopefully add to the Bluecoats medal count. A little less amp affect wouldn't hurt but I have honestly liked the direction this corps has been going since 2001. Here's to the only corps that has had one of my top 3 favorite shows since 2012.
  12. Bloo is the favorite of the year for myself, my mom, and my husband and we never agree on favorite shows. This was a fantastic show that had everyone grooving in their seat at the same time. I honestly don't know how it took 5th. Come back stronger than ever next year Bloo.
  13. Haha the figure 8 up front with 2 straight lines leading to the center volcano.
  14. Hey did I catch a blatent phallus in the cavaliers drill or is my mind in the gutter?
