  1. ^^^ They read it. And ditto. Congrats to every single one out there.
  2. To anyone involved with the 2021 season. Congrats. Staff. Member. Volunteer. Whatever. We did it. Drum corps made it back. Was full of fear a year ago. Full of happiness and hope now.
  3. Being back in LOS last night was pretty special. Needed that kind of excitement and happiness in my life again.
  4. Can’t wait to see some stuff in person tomorrow. Up very close for one 😎
  5. I’ve seen this live from the stands and up close. I promise it doesn’t sound like this good god 😂
  6. It’s the contra ostinato from the portion of tilt before the drum feature layered in there 🙂 Lots of Easter eggs in the show, end of Walrus going into that portion has the fake out company front from 2018.
  7. Was really cool having drum corps back in the Texas panhandle. Beautiful night, great venue, and great drum corps. Lots of first time viewers tonight, was a fun crowd to be a part of. Blown away by the quality and energy this season. Truly happy seeing corps out there performing again. Hope this show stays. It was cool seeing the activity back in my neck of the woods.
  8. Just spent a month with a corps (wonder who) and seeing a drum corps perform in front of an audience after almost two years was pretty special. I’m just so glad we are back in business. Was so scared for the activity a year ago. Been watching videos of some of the other shows too now that I have time, so pleasantly surprised with the quality! Makes me so happy, drum corps is back 🙂 I’ll be at the Canyon show on Tuesday on the university campus where I work. So excited to see some more corps!!!
  9. 100% where I am. Whether it’s videos or in person, every note I hear is a note we didn’t get in 2020. Drum corps is back and we should celebrate every moment.
  10. They’re like that on and off the field. The vibes are good everywhere at all times.
  11. It’s a little bit wet in Marion Indiana right now 😬 Hoping it’ll clear up here soon.
  12. It's been awhile DCP 😅 Watched The Umbrellas of Cherbourg on Christmas for the first time......good lord Michel Legrand. How has I Will Wait for You only been used twice??? Totally forgot BD used it in 2008. Would LOVE to heart that used again, broke my heart at the end of that movie. Incredible score, been awhile since one has hit me like a freight train like that. The way that theme evolves from happy and youthful to melancholy and bittersweet at the end is just.....wow. Favorite movie I've seen in awhile. Anyways, I want to hear that on the field again.
  13. This is heartbreaking. Since day one as a fan, he’s a name I have associated with BOA, DCI, WGI, etc. So many great stories told by him over the years. He’ll be greatly missed. Rest In Peace
  14. Hebron live is something else, they sound good on video but in person it’s bonkers. 2017 in particular was wild, big first impact I swear I was sitting in front of a drum corps. Insane mellophone section and woodwinds in particular. Their technical prowess is pretty untouchable in the HS world, only one that comes close is Vandegrift IMO. Marcus in their prime as well.
  15. Don't have a lot of money to throw around but already made some small donations to a few of the corps I have supported before.
  16. Sucks but it's the right call. Already made some donations, even if they were small, to some of the corps I have supported before. Lots of great leaders out there that I'm sure will get the activity through this, even though it's gonna be hard. Here's to 2021.
  17. Was going to finally get out on my own when I got back from doing admin stuff again. Will probably do that sooner. Get my first place. Have been working to and have lost weight the last year and a few months, will get to keep doing that. And focus on some clients I have during the fall for marching band. Play video games. Read some books. Be big sad.
  18. Lots of hard decisions to come I am sure. In the end what needs to be done is keep everyone safe. WGI didn’t just cancel because they’re scared, Ohio/UD were probably going to make restrictions on events with higher attendance events and the like. I suspect if DCI would do the same it would be for similar reasons. There’s housing for all parts of the tour, performance venues, the environment that corps operate in, different states restrictions on events should this continue to escalate, etc. I and I’m sure many more will be heartbroken should something happened his summer, but if it needs to be done it needs to be done.
  19. Vista Murrieta was great, that was a refreshing and different approach as much as I love watching Texas bands all day. Colorguard and drums especially were a real treat, but the band held their own for sure. Personally had them in finals.
