  1. I think last night in SC started the trend of Phantom starting to pull away from SOA. It should increase tonight in Florida. I really wanted to see SOA back in finals and the head to heads with Phantom were exciting while it lasted. But lets face it Phantom is Phantom and Spirits show while vastly improved lacks certain aspects. IMO Spirit lacks drill and their brass seems to lack the power of the corps around them. Why the brass stays hidden so long during that awesome drum break after the ballad is beyond me. Colts are also on Spirits heels.
  2. I noticed on the Spirit videos that there were about 4 or 5 wipeouts on the large ramp. Several guard members, horn and a snare bit it at different points in the performance.. They all got up and continued on like a champ. Hope they are all okay.
  3. Just watched it. I am literally exhausted.
  4. I watched the live stream and then a couple of times after. Sound quality was not that great due to playing inside. Lots of echoes. There were some pretty good musical moments. Eager to see how it all comes together with design, drill, visual, CG and (sorry) UGH, costume.
  5. Southwind brass was stellar. Will never contend until they do something about the guard. Very forgettable.
  6. I kind of think Spirit might stall a little with scoring tonight. Either small increase or drop. They have had positive increases since their first show, but have consistently been traveling and I wonder if they have had time to add and properly clean for a big jump. I wish there was something to compare. The only thing I've seen is the video from their preview which was choppy and incomplete. I would love to see how everything has molded with the transitions.
  7. Glad to see some of this. Missed the great videos highlights they posted about last years progress. Still no sold on the show and music. Reminds me of a high school band doing a Spanish show. That is just me and what I've heard of the music on line. I'm sure I'll be proven wrong when it all comes together.
  8. It may not be the best way to revisit Southwinds performance but there is an audio. If you go to DCI prelims tunnel, look for their pit in the tunnel. After they roll out and the show begins you can hear it. You can hear the high spots ( not those great solos) and definitely the crowd response. Like I said it's not perfect but it's all we have. You made be surprised at how much is audible.
  9. I wonder if the hole the Marines march is significant to a lost Marine. If a member couldn't march for a particular reason I'm sure they have alternates.
  10. Guardians have a lot of stuff (tunnel). Southwind does it with very little. Could be one of reasons for visual scores they received. I know, small steps. Only thing missing for me in their show. Hope next year they address that as well as guard.
