    "Should we not be putting all our emphasis on reading, writing and math? The ‘back-to-basics curricula,’ while it has merit, ignores the most urgent void in our present system - absence of self-discipline. The arts, inspiring - indeed requiring - self-discipline, may be more ‘basic’ to our nation survival than traditional credit courses. Presently, we are spending 29 times more on science than on the arts, and the result so far is worldwide intellectual embarrassment." - Paul Harvey - syndicated radio show host.<br />

  1. My condolences and prayers to Mr. Eng's family. He was a tremendous influence to all the youth he taught and will be very much missed.
  2. Totally agree!!! And, congratulations to all the open class corps for their fabulous shows this year!!!
  3. Thanks for the play by play and all the pictures Kevin! And thanks to all the corps, open and world, for making this an exceptional season of drum corps. Now to DCI.com to see ceremonies. See you hear next year.
  4. SHOUT OUT to T. Andre Feagin....director of bands at my alma mater, UT-El Paso, directing the All-American Army Band!!!
  5. Looking forward to reading about all the happenings...wish I was there!!
  6. I am not thrilled video download. They could have offered it in one of the WC bundles instead of the CD. I would rather have a bundle with WC and OC VIDEOS than the attached CD involved in the bundles DCI is currently selling. Also, by the price we have all paid for the DVD's DCI sells, they are definitely making a profit from sales vs. cost of production. As for downloads, music I have no problem downloading music. In fact, as I previously stated, I would prefer this so I can have only the corps I want on the CD. Plus, there was also the disappointment of getting the OC, as well WC, on bluray. This I do not have the technology to do. I can burn a DVD, but not bluray. I am pretty sure I am not the only one who is willing to pay out more for that extra in video and audio quality.
  7. 10. The last 3 or so minutes of The Academy's Closer - guard with the large double yellow flags and the last mvmt. of the Borodin. 9. Blue Knights slow portion of the Nimrod - great low brass sound. 8. SCV visuals throughout their drill. 7. Madison Scouts opening push - what a way to make an entrance! 6. Cadets Dance of the Tumblers 5. Phantom's mello section. 4. Cavie's percussion feature. 3. BD's Ballad. 2. All of BDB's show!!! 1. Crown's Nimrod to the end - awesome!
  8. I called DCI (317-275-1212) and the rep said they will not be selling Open Corps video. They will have video download available in the next few months. I ask why. She stated she was not given any reason for that decision. I am so very disappointed in DCI for this decision. It seems that when it comes to Open Class, DCI and the G7 are both on the same page.....
