  1. Unfortunately, the redirects are so aggressive I can only give you a screenshot of what I get redirected to, which probably doesn't help all that much. Good to still see familiar faces here :-)
  2. Mobile browsers are being redirected to scammy pages frequently unless I disable Javascript while browsing dcp. Just a heads up
  3. I did that once. Discovered it took me seven years to come back.
  4. Glassmen: i admit it, i am biased, but i really liked this show. it developed a bit slowly in the beginning, but the end was nice. wish i could have played this show myself
  5. Spirit: good show. clear concept. good sound. pit was a but overbalanced in soft spots, but arguably one of the best spirit corps in a while
  6. dude. you must be sitting right next to me
  7. ledgends battery was late to the field. interesting show--pretty dark. good visuals. hornline doesn't have the power that forte and mc had. pit had a prominent sound, especially considering they weren't amped. show had some flat moments but executed decently well.
  8. Music City: big sound, good drumline. Pit played a lot of notes but even amped, i couldn't really hear them. Show was entertaining but very medley-of-tunes.
  9. Just saw forte. Small corps, but really big sound! Congratulations on a great first EVER performance. I look forward to seeing what you guys will do in the coming years.
  10. I like it in that show as well, but my problem is that I hear it EVERYWHERE, especially in the last couple of years.
  11. Offhand, I can't point to one specifically (no recordings in front of me right now), though I believe there is one in Phantom 03 right before the first pit/tenor feature in the closer. I've also encountered it in several marching band scores.
  12. One of the chord progressions I think is getting a bit overused is exemplified as follows: Bar 1: High brass F Major chord, A on top, low brass silent Bar 2: High brass continue from Bar 1, low brass Gb major chord, Bb on top Bar 3: High brass continue from Bar 2, low brass resolves down half step It has some interest, but everyfreakingbody does it, and many shows have it several times throughout. It's just getting old.
  13. I didn't say the case would win, but the corps doesn't really need to even have a suit filed against them. Bad for publicity, bad for finances, bad for everybody.
  14. Unfortunately, there are two sides to every story, and if this were actually the case, we'd know about it already. I am very curious to hear the other side of the story.
  15. I have several reasons for not giving my own opinion here. First and foremost, I have already communicated my opinion to Marie O'Rourke and George Hopkins, and I did so as soon as I received the email. Had I received a reply---of any sort---in the nearly three weeks since, I would have let this go. The lack of a reply indicates to me a general indifference toward this matter, which troubles me greatly, especially since YEA has now opened itself up to liability in a slander lawsuit, and this activity cannot afford to have its corps in legal trouble. Secondly, I did not give my personal opinion, as I am a staff member on this board, and I do not wish to even give the appearance of speaking on behalf of DCP on this matter. I have privately discussed this with a few individuals on this board, and after much thought, I decided that the lack of response (or even acknowledgment) from YEA warranted this posting. As such, my OP was nothing more than a statement of fact in an effort to elicit discussion and to hopefully bring the matter to YEA's attention in a more visible manner. I do not apologize for posting this, as YEA felt it appropriate to send to its mailing list. I only hope that YEA notices this and addresses it quickly and appropriately.
