  1. did you see the research on trumpets? University of Minnesota study finds trumpet ‘riskiest’ instrument for spreading COVID-19
  2. One thing I'm doing when on interminably boring zoom calls is do a google news search for drum corps - you will often find obituaries of people who have died recently. The obituary makes a passing reference to drum and bugle corps - such as, "She loved life, family, horses and drum and bugle corps."
  3. Peanuts characters do Crown's 2016 Relentless
  4. Scott Adams mentioned this youtube "reaction" genre today - he points out how the fun of watching these videos is in observing the enjoyment of the person viewing the video for the first time. I think he is onto something - there is something deep in our human nature that allows us to enjoy something new to us when we are surrounded by others who are enjoying that musical experience. Worth a listen - Episode 1084 Scott Adams
  5. This has got some real visual possibilities - plus you could enclose electronics in the bag as well!
  6. Great discussion everyone - so in my state, for the week of July 5 - 11we have cumulative 40,163 cases and 1,490 deaths - would you calculate IFR by dividing deaths by case -- mortality rate of: 0.037 How would we calculate Infection Fatality Rate for the entire USA?
  7. At the risk of being cancelled, or having my content disabled, as Dilbert cartoonist and provocateur Scott Adams says - one thing 2020 has shown is, we suck at measuring things -- can anyone provide an objective or meaningful statistic on the infection fatality rate of c19? Do we even know? The media would have us believe that having c19 is a death sentence - equivalent to the plague or ebola - but to the best of our knowledge, do we know what percentage of people who get c19 die? I believe that the fatality rates are far higher with older (60+) and people with co-morbidities -- but HS ma
  8. Anyone know who's idea that was? It really was clever - had anything like that ever been done before?
  9. I think where I was going with this was, youtube is a content platform - if you put out good content you will get subscribers and you will get more interest in your content - if DCI wants to grow its audience, it needs to grow its social media footprint. Why is DCI not allowed to post more content? Is it simply because of music copyright issues with the shows performed? Some youtube channels that are more popular than DCI: Ask a mortician Kittisaurus - since 10/19/2019
  10. curious if any corps have more youtube subscribers than DCI itself? as of today, 6/27/2020 DCI has 117K subscribers, Blue Devils have 71.3K subscribers by way of comparison to other channels, MLW Wiffle Ball 143K subscribers
  11. So - I only knew broadway from drum corps shows - Fiddler - SCV, Cats - Scouts, Les Mis - Cadets, Phantom - SCV -- A production of Cats is on youtube right now -- will drum corps fans like the original after all tthey know is the Madison Scouts version?
