  1. Shoutout to the Cavaliers timpani player. He’s been a beast the last few years.
  2. As much as I’ve been talking about the brass, the drums are SO clear and the colorguard is so insane again this year.
  3. This brassline might be contending for an Ott a year from now if they keep this up. 😳
  4. I'm full of groundbreaking ideas, I know. Bask in my genius.
  5. Glad he apologized. Might want to have some questions on his mind next time though, they've been really awkward all night.
  6. Maybe a little more than that. 😂 I have heard the number 11 is very in right now.
  7. I know it’s been said, but Cadets need a simple, non issue related theme that they do to the nth degree. Just pick something fun and simple that can be executed as a design and performance wise.
  8. The screamers over the end of the ballad......idk how those have stayed in.
  9. I don’t hate any shows. I enjoy a lot of moments in Cadets show. The opener is very majestic. Estancia is VERY exciting and would have worked great if it was the drum feature. The members are really trying to sell it. And their drumline is worth the price of admission to watch. Just hits some major speed bumps when it hits the ballad and another extended drum feature after that.
  10. I’m sad too! We can’t love every show, and it’s really the first one since I’ve started following that left me a little cold. Nothing at all on the kids, just not for me design wise. Still enjoyed some moments though, I’m sure I’ll love em next year!
  11. Well, baring something shocking we just saw all of those corps perform for the last time, sans Spartans in exhibition tonight (sans asterisk.....). Some of my favorite shows and performances come from those corps in 13th to 35th every year. Some of the most genuine shows and displays of emotions. Thanks again for blowing me away. Pacific Crests and Spartans wildly entertaining shows and that Madison Scouts performance signaling the beginning of a new era are stick outs to me, but everyone laid it all out there.
  12. Spirit of Atlanta took some risks this year, some of which didn't pay off. But I'm glad they're back knocking on the door of finals for a second year and in WAY better financial shape than they were a few years ago. Keep it up and you make finals very soon. Still a wildly fun show.
  13. Okay now that you said that I cannot unhear it and it's gonna drive me nuts.
  14. 2013 they were seeded 15th and then dropped to 16th in semifinals.
  15. This show feels like The Academy 2014, Mandarins 2016, and Spirit of Atlanta 2017. Pretty big shift in staff and show design approach that allowed them to shoot up pretty far in one season for their strongest season ever. And they just sounded and looked SO GOOD today! Incredibly rich and dynamic hornline, crisp and energetic drumline, and a guard that was just nailing all their big moments. I hope they can chain together another strong one next year, because wow. What a show this year. Congratulations on your best corps and show ever in my eyes.
