  1. "at the end of the day" buzz words are becoming truly "ubiquitous"
  2. Hey, Rocinante, why the long face?
  3. Worst transition from stage to screen: Sofia Loren as Dulcinea.
  4. Dark: Blue Devils "Carpe Noctum" Skulls in hand: Alas poor Hamlets, they knew you well"
  5. Just going to add a few I haven't seen listed as yet: NY Kingsmen circa '68: The sombrero/Malaguena (Kenton) year. 1968 & 1969 Kilties: VFW titles. 1969, 1970 Blue Rock: Elephant Walk WITHOUT the pink prop. St. Joseph Patron Cadets/St. Rocco's/OLC Ramblers/OLPH Ridgemen: 1964-1969 era. (South Brooklyn: a corps every 10 blocks going down 4th Avenue)
  6. I'd like to see a 3 city rotation for championships: Indy - Kansas City - Denver.
  7. Is Atlanta in or out?

    I thought perhaps that Boston was inside reprising their show "Rise".
  8. How about limiting staff sizes. Top 12 staffs out-number the size of corps in the 60's and 70's. Ratio of staff to members is getting insane. Staff transport, food, logistics, etc. is crazy and all those salaries increase costs also!
  9. 2017 DCI survey

    Concierto de Aranjuez accompaniment.
  10. John Pratt Needs Our Prayers

    Jack, as we called him, was our "chops-building" tech when I was marching in Hawthorne's snare line in the early 70's. George Tuthill would teach us the book and Jack would pound us with fundamentals and endurance. Lots of hours out at Ft. Dix, NJ with Jack smiling at us using his arm as a visual metronome. We sometimes hated it but playing the book cleanly was a result of all that pre-season training. Jack's old-school NARD background seemed like a strange mix with George T's more modern Shellmer style and technique but the result was a pretty good drumline and a few championships. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
  11. A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

    Just the percussion intro. for "Legend". OR, you could play the whole thing with just body movement.
  12. That might be a possibility. I miss the open seating days for dawn admission prelims in Whitewater. Early risers were rewarded and we waited in lines peacefully and preserved our seating area without resorting to fisticuffs.
  13. I'm just glad I didn't see any exposed booty showing me a Yellow Rose on their underpants.
  14. Cadets 2018

    Let's go for 2000 pages!
  15. Only if accompanied with Jethro Tull music.
