  1. I don't care how many titles you have...if your audience has to do research to understand your show, you're doing something wrong.
  2. Rach Star really epitomized Crown's design philosophy in the 2000s--come up with a central conceit that, on paper, looks silly or twee, but then they utterly commit to it, and somehow make it work like gangbusters.
  3. It's a little ragged, and the transition to Canon sounds like they're on the verge of collapse, but yeah, it's one of the great high-energy closers.
  4. A great reminder of 1. What an incredible show this was 2. The insane degree to which multi-angle choices mangle the presentation of a show.
  5. I had forgotten how inhumanly clean their brassline was.
  6. I had forgotten how much I liked this show...
  7. That might be pushing it a bit. Vanguard definitely had a lush arrangement of Copland, but the Cadet's performance of "Make Our Garden Grow" is one of my all time favorites.
  8. Right there with you. It's sublime. Crazy enough that he didn't get an Oscar for it, but Morricone finally winning for The Hateful Eight is like Bob Newhart not winning an Emmy until he guest starred on The Big Bang Theory.
  9. These days, can ANYONE understand the subtleties of a show from a single viewing? More importantly, does it really matter? She's promoting the activity.
  10. One of my all-time favorite shows. I saw them at DCI South in Bham--they started filing out while the previous corps was finishing up; one look at the all-white unis and the entire crowd went "OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHhhhhhhhh". A magical, hypnotic show; They lost DCI South by .1; a .1 penalty dropped them behind BD. Don't know if they peaked too soon or just had a really bad night, but that show had the chops to be a contender.
  11. Wasn't one of the arguments for amplification that it would allow corps to reduce the size of the pits?
