    Then vs Now

    Holy extrapolation Batman. That's...not what they're saying at all. They're saying that maybe, just mayyyyyyybe, one should consider allowing men to have a space to be emotional in a way other than showing anger, rather than locking everything away or directing it toward anger. The fact that your interpretation of that was "guess we should all dance with Richard Simmons and ISIS" says far, far more about you than anything else. Though misreading things to suit your contrived notions of the world isn't abnormal, given the BAC '09 discussion.

    Past 10 Seasons

    Y'all're undervaluing 2011.
  3. Agreed. They would have been better off adopting something similar to the guard uniforms from '97--keep the black jacket, but go white pants, and a neon cummerbund.
  4. I've gone back and watched several 2008 Finals night videos recently. Prosperie spent the whole night on death escape duty lol

    About licensing

    Very true. That said, it's an interesting thought experiment. New staff comes in and is told, "ok, here's the music that's licensed for this year. Make a show. Good luck!" So if...for the sake of argument...let's say Cadets were held to the Bernstein deal for this year, but with a substantially revised design team. Or say that Rennick/Shaw/Rosander had picked music for 2010/2011/2012, and then Hill/Gwaltney had had to arrange to the previous selections. Interesting idle thought, if nothing else.

    2019 Madison Scouts!

    Well, there was the recent bit where it was brought to light that he welcomed a registered sex offender into multiple corps he supervised...
  7. ...so you didn't watch last year's Bluecoats, then.

    “Failure to Protect”

    The person was booked for a felony, but wasn't necessarily convicted. However, the mugshot exists whether they were convicted or not. So they could be called on something, even if they were found not guilty.

    2019 Tour Schedule!

    They still have the June Massillon show, just don't stream it.

    Countdown 2008 dvd (Series?)

    Perhaps a better way of splitting it: do it after the 48th season (so, hey, after next year!), and grab three from each 12-year segment of the activity. So bin 1 would be '72-'83, bin 2 would be '84-'95, bin 3 would be '96-'07, and bin 4 would be '08-'19. Assuming the one-show-per-corps rule, my picks so far would be: Madison '75, 27th '80, Kingsmen '73 Star '91 (or '93), Crossmen '92, SCV '89 Cavaliers '02, Phantom '96, Cadets '05 Bluecoats 2016 (or 2014), BD 2014, Crown '08 (my personal preference) or '13 or '15

    The Cadets 2019

    ...he wasn't gone until April. That's the majority of the design season, and most camps. IIRC, the new stuff after he left was revised lyrics for the singers, and an entirely new back half of the show.
