  1. Now you're just guessing? You seemed so certain and quick to put me in my place a few hours ago.
  2. What if I'm good enough for a WC corps and have been dreaming of marching with X corps, but can only march my age-out year because of school/money/etc?
  3. Unless DCI Fan Network customer support gets on this board frequently....how exactly does posting here solve your problem? It's like your Honda Civic broke down and you went to your buddy who owns a Honda asking for answers....
  4. I got to be honest. While there are some well run OC corps out there, too many of them (especially the ones always on the verge of collapse or the ones that do collapse and come back only to collapse again) are NOT quality institutions and the "experience" any kid would get there will likely be a waste of time and money. Even worse it very well might turn that kid off to marching all together. We've all heard the stories that are far too common but no one really talks about. so... Want to march DC but can't afford a WC corps? Need to work on your chops and test the waters before marching
  5. Dude..........there's a manhole as one of the main focal points of the poster..... Perhaps an adorable young panda bear will chill out this bad cop?
  6. Put them in a museum where they belong alongside other instruments that we look back on and chuckle, and from time to time, play just for the novelty value. You could set up a whole exhibit that includes: G Bugles Key'd bugles Metal Clarinets Brass Vamp Horn Valved Trombone Natural Horn Marching Tenor Horns The Glass Armonica To name a few. I'd pay to see that exhibit. Sounds fun. Especially if it were interactive.
  7. I hope that hint isn't that the show will be sewage. I kid, I kid.
  8. You have to run up steep hills carrying 2 weighted long rangers. Instead of disassembling a rifle you have to disassemble and store away a met/long ranger set-up. Maybe they have a standard for how fast your battery change time should be?
  9. Archetypes aren't just limited to good vs evil. Forget a room with a view of a pond. This is America. Give me a room with a view OF HELL
  10. It's not "ditch digger," It's "Trenching Specialist."
  11. They're called Archetypes. They're found in every book, play, opera, TV show, Movie and even drum corps show. They aren't going anywhere and they don't really change, just how they're presented. Move on.
  12. I bet you could ask every member who has ever marched in the era of Crocker and hear the same thing. A pretty universal, and very cool, truth.
  13. Psssst.... The joke is in the wording of the position, not exactly the position itself. ;)
  14. One the field, performing their 2011 production "You're reading this in my voice, aren't you?"
  15. Which is why, if you know this, then it makes the announcement hilarious. Garbage man = Sanitation Expert Nurse = Medical Technician water boy = Hydration Expert or Training Assistant Met B***h = Metronome Technician
  16. They're usually hyped from outside of the top 3 each year as the "Corps that's going to win our next championship. This is the year!" But they always end up about where they were last year + or - a rank or two. Sounds like the definition of hype to me. The show can still be very enjoyable, and I have enjoyed SCV shows this decade more years then not, but still be over-hyped. Also add in the fact that BD is the bigger powerhouse and just down the road and it seems the reason fans over-hype that year's product is so they can pump themselves and their fan-base to try and put themselves over
  17. Crown - Metronome Technician - "Crown is looking for a college aged student that can come to spring training and go on tour with us for the whole summer as our metronome technician. Cost? $0.00 But you really need to know how to run a DB-90 or be an aweful quick learner. Tough job, but you tour and hang with Crown all summer."
  18. From Carolina Crown's Facebook: "Crown is looking for a college aged student that can come to spring training and go on tour with us for the whole summer as our metronome technician. Cost? $0.00 But you really need to know how to run a DB-90 or be an aweful quick learner. Tough job, but you tour and hang with Crown all summer." lol?
