  1. I will only say that I got a whole new appreciation for PRs 2010 drum line from the field judge's tape. I heard levels of detail that just weren't there in the standard recording.

    Show About Time...

    Music from "Somewhere in Time" Adventures in Time visuals inspired by The Persistence of Memory Costumes that go from the Victoria era of The Time Machine to something ridiculously futuristic.

    Countdown 2008 dvd (Series?)

    I think they stopped putting out the DVDs because they realized they were undercutting the sales of the season championships. Still, a lot of great performances on those two discs!
  5. Naw; didn't you see the video: "I. AM. JOAN!" They're going to replicate Spartacus in every detail except for the female lead.
  6. Imma just gonna leave this here. 😎 OK, ok...this might be more useful.

    A Message from DCI CEO Dan Acheson

    Given the various scandals of this past season, as well as the scandals that are apparently about to come to light, I can think of no legitimate reason for Atcheson not to speak to the reporter.

    Electronics question

    At the Birmingham show I attended this past summer, most of the corps (possibly all, I didn't start looking for them til a few corps into the show) had their own generators. Given the wide variations in venues, I suspect it's effectively mandatory.

    Best Reprise Closer?

    It took a few days for it to occur to me, but I'm kind of partial to the reprise of Concerto in F from Garfield 82.

    Best Reprise Closer?

    Star 1985 did a reprise of "When You Wish Upon a Star" . . . good, but PR 2003 is really in a class by itself.
  12. Saw them in Birmingham--similar to the Mandarins, they had a great show idea, and sold the hell out of it. Incredible energy. On top of that, one of the marimba players is the son of an old college friend.

    Best Baritone solos or features

    The crazy contra solo was in 1980. "Open Wide"?

    Best Baritone solos or features

    Wasn't there a good bari solo in 27th Lancer's 1981 Niner-Two?

    SCV's show was an epic musical fail.

    OK, thanks for the info. I was under the impression the judges saw the shows on a more regular basis. And just so we're clear, I am not implying any sort of dissatisfaction regarding SCVs show. Yes, I'm not familiar with any of the music, but it is growing on me. And the musicianship on display was unreal.
