  1. It may well not have been, I just assumed it was. The voice sounded plausibly member age-ish to me, but regardless, it needs some fixing. The clips were quite short tonight at least, maybe they trimmed it.
  2. It may be; I too have only seen the play once, but that was a very long time ago. My point was more that they could've called the show Jesus Christ Superstar and been fine, instead of me scratching my head, trying to figure out everything that was "Judas" related.
  3. Here we go... We were down super low in the fourth row, but dead center, so I didn’t get much of a read at all in terms of drill. Perfect weather, and a friendly crowd. My only real show-related complaint was the bathroom lines. I felt especially bad for a few members of the Academy waiting ahead of us for the port-a-jons that had to give up ;) SHADOW: Messin’ with DNA! Very solid start! How often do you get to say that you saw a corps’ very first DCI performance?? The crowd gave them major love on their exit hearing that announcement. I’m not a drummer, but they seemed to have a particula

  5. Just got home, awesome show. Shadow had a really strong start, how often do you get to say that you saw a corp's inaugural DCI show?? Academy was fun, Blue Stars were on fire tonight, and Scouts wowed the crowd as usual. (Slightly) more detailed review to follow.
  6. Whatever happened to having the show in Camp Randall? I think it's been a few years since it's been there.
  7. Shoes announcing caption winners would be a fascinating turn of events. Something like the Sorting Hat, maybe? The Scoring Shoe?
  8. (I've got no ill will towards the mods if this comes down, but here's to trying!.;) " **** You! A Tribute to Expletives." Opener: **** Happens Ballad: Mother****** Percussion Feature: Dropped my ******* stick, ****it! Closer: Thank God this ******* piece of **** is ******* over! Epilogue: What's our **** score, you ********? What?! **** *** *** ******* ** **** *!!?! @$^!#!
  9. I'm think more corps should be honest and call their shows ABstRACtion . We're pretty much already there...
  10. I want to see a corps intentionally try for the lowest score possible. They can call it "Go for Zero!" Only caveats I'm putting on it are that they can't deliberately break rules just to get there via penalties, still have to field 150ish marchers, and must actually play something while moving. (I imagine sitting there motionless in silence for 12.5 minutes would in fact score you a zero.)
  11. I remember there was some minor brouhaha about this particular set in Carolina Crown's 2006* on here. Emphasis on the word MINOR. There were a few people chuckling at a vague, possibly suggestive shape, many squinting and not seeing anything other then an amorphous drill form, and zero people writing angry letters to Crown or DCI about it demanding sanctions of some kind. I'm making a conjecture here, but I'm willing to bet no one witnessing it live audibly gasped and shouted "HOW DARE THEY!" I feel really bad for the KSU band...If the university really wanted to cover their butts and issue
  12. And therein lies the dilemma. Do we reward the best show by the end of the season or the best show of the season? (I'm not advocating in favor of averaging myself, just posing the question.)
