  1. I usually have a problem of losing too much weight on tour. Came home last summer 55 pounds lighter, but probably 40 pounds of that was muscle. Knowing I'm going to get beat on for four hours immediately after eating did not do a lot to encourage me to eat more (enough) at each meal. Been trying to gain weight this year before everdays. Don't know if it will actually help, but I've always come home way scawnier than I leave.
  2. wait... you're a cadets hopeful? As in a Gino Cipriani run hornline? And you're worried about blue devil's overwhelming trumpets? Not that I don't love the way the Cadets play. But I'd say they are often way less balanced than BD is.
  3. Wait, that means you're drinking anywhere from a quarter to a half gallon of water per break? Aside from being able to drink that much water that fast... how would you be able to not immediately throw it all up within the next few minutes?
  4. Was it at Stanford? Was sitting right near him, "Show me ridiculous direction changes" was the actual statement. Got a few chuckles from the crowd, don't know if they could hear it from the field though.
  5. Is there a version of Godwin's law for unnecessary and off topic references/discussion about Cadets + narration? Also, can we please get those bears into souvie trucks?
  6. If you can remember what music they played it should be pretty easy to find out who it was.
  7. Haven't heard much from members this year, but anyone got any inside info on this?
  8. While I'm not even going to say that "someones long winded explanation" necessarily a bad thing, the OP never was asking for that, a 30 second synopsis is more like a movie trailer and not really any amount of deep thinking. The point, while I may be incredibly wrong, is not to explain what the shows mean to the viewers or to enlighten them before they view the shows, but to give them something more to expect than "its kinda like a marching band." I mean, most of us look forward to, at the very least, musical selections of each corps. We might not care about why they chose to put those song
  9. But the environment effects/energy required to make a new can from non recycled aluminum is higher than that of making one from recycled aluminum.

  11. so... I really don't see it happening at any time, but what would happen if a corps accepted, or didn't accept members based on race? Would the same rules and arguments apply, or would it be completely different?
  12. So, I just saw it, and oh my wow they're good. Especially at this point in the season. As far as the narration, mostly, it just seems like another part of the show. I don't really see it as annoying or taking away or even adding to what the show is/could be. It's just there. I do however hope the narration is practiced just like any other part of the show and not just feel like it's already great and ready for finals or anything. As far as the rest of the season, I can't wait to see them live.
  13. While I just about never agree with hrothgar I do think you are being a bit unfair. You may not like him, but when he asks you to remove his own quote, it's just a personal attack that you don't. And drumcat, you're just being a jerk. Really. Hrothgar, if you had already, I apologize, but it might have been a mite wiser to pm him rather than request it publicly. As far as the actual topic at hand, I have nothing to share, except... Yay?
  14. First of all, I really have to disagree with you about how individualism is something that should not be part of the performance. I believe I understand what you are saying, but personally, I use my individual experiences and ideals to help me perform, whether it is simply to become more emotionally attached to the show/music or for the extra strength and energy needed when you feel exhausted. Aside from all of that, one of the main reasons I've pretty much always believed drum corps never gets much attention from anyone outside the activity, is the lack of individualism shown in a performa
  15. I don't actually have a problem with it at all. Sure they could play some music and then stop playing music when it's over and yes, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, and it's not like people and corps shouldn't do that. So, I think I can understand when people say they hate the narration or the arrangement or whatever other design issues there are. It's just not your cup of tea, and that is entirely fine with me. But I have pretty much always heard people supporting the kids who march there, even if the design team is going crazy. In 05 and 06 DCPers were pretty much always on
