  1. Bluecoats 2018-LETS GO BLOO

    I prefer to just rattle my jewelry
  2. 2017 Favorite "Moments"

    Bloo tipping hats on the "ding" - nice touch BK snare solo Seattle Cascades vocalist, hard to compete with SIA but she did it Next year...hoping for cowbell solo at the 50 yard line, someone please indulge
  3. Enough Judging Conspiracy Theories

    I wouldn't mind status quo system with the addition of each judge's ordinal ranking of performances at the end of the night, just a simple 1,2,3,4 etc. So you can see the minutia of the scoring but also a "big picture" from each judge. It may not even have to have weight on the final score, but it would be interesting to have the info to digest. Unless this already goes on an I am just being Jane you ignorant ---
  4. 2017 World Championships Finals - Aug 12

    For Crown, it is as if the Olympic gymnast performed a perfect 10 out of 10 routine, but halfway through, her leotard split open and she performed half naked throughout anyway. How do you score? Does the distraction detract enough?
  5. I think that is a great idea. Has a rhythmic gymnastics visual flair. Would look great from up above. Where do I sign up for sewing committee?
  6. The best revenge is buying a lot of merch
  7. As my old band teacher said when we were too straight arrow on the field - "what are you guys, a bunch of Catholics?" We were a bunch of Catholics, it was a Catholic school
  8. Probably too late in the game for this, but I also would like some type of imagining of a "spotlight" for soloists on the stage. Whether that be something provided by the guard, such as a spot of color, something that replicates a stage performance of the cabaret style. Flags / banners surrounding them, something.

    Thanks!
  10. Hip Hillsboro - July 7, 2017

    Any other attendees get the email about potential long lines at will call? Cannot figure out how to convert from will call to print at home tickets. Very much looking forward to tonight, should be cooler than the last few days. Introducing my visiting 12 yr old niece to drum corps, she is cynical about almost everything but I believe the Blue Devils will turn her around. I can always allude to their history of Bieber-ization to win some points.
  11. Would love to see this. Some flash of color, gotta be blue right? Fosse! Fosse! Fosse!
  12. This is my first post after longtime lurking / loitering but wanted to note that Bloo's twitter today alluded to trying on new unis...anyone know what may be in store? Am myself hoping for false eyelashes on right eye a la Clockwork's Alex but probably not in the cards. Big Bloo fan, love the show this year. Still looking for addition of those "wow" moments. Kept hoping for real transitions as they move through the set piece, in one color, out the other type things that may not be feasible given the limited space and time they have inside. But visually it feels like there is a built-in expectation for change as they go in and then emerge.
