  1. Less hats than ever. Those cost money. If you can medal without one why bother?
  2. He's not upset about that. He is upset about his..... (WOMP womp womp from hornline) Inappropriate "dad" joke that was never funny (pre-teens cackle as old people gasp and say "how cheeky")
  3. Was referencing SCV. And like I thought, not a word on their amplified brass. You can't call out one corps and give another a pass on it. Time for Steve and Dennis to retire seeing as they now have that old man opinion. Absolute trash from both of them. Old senile trash.
  4. I love this show but if the announcers don't mention the hornline amplification as being "too much" here like they did with Bluecoats they lose every ounce of credibility and respect they once may have had in my eyes. This show should win. But it's an equal offender on that front.
  5. I love this show but you can't look past clean JUST because of fun. Marching slightly out of time isn't intentional and certainly isn't HE. Freeform moments do a great job of showcasing "the point" but don't excuse out of time feet
  6. I also like band. I totally agree with you on this band related topic that was posted on this band forum. Your band point about band was very true. (This isn't a forum to air out your national beliefs. There are places tho do that. This isn't one. Band)
  7. They like something more than something else. QUICK THROW THEIR OPINION OUT THE WINDOW!
  8. Bluecoats end on a d major chord. I'm glad, since they is naturally very easy to tune on Bb horns. Fingering demands? You guys must have your minds absolutely blown when people play arbans for you....
  9. I would urge everyone to go look on YouTube a transcription of their show this year. Find me someone who thinks this book is a 4th place book and I will find you someone who does not understand brass playing
  10. Clearly you haven't looked at the recap my dude. Either those almost random placements of captions were so meticulously planned to add up to a specific number from every judge, or that's just how it is. I wouldn't think the color guard judge said "oh they did good but putting their guard in 3rd wouldn't slot them properly into 4th 6th it is."
  11. This 1000000%. Having seen it live tonight I fully realize the timing demands. They have trading off eighth note passages across the field while jazz running. I would say Bloo has the most demanding brass book this year from a timing standpoint.
  12. Anyone have corps rehearsal locations? I know Bloo is at centennial but I can't navigate most corps sites on my phone as well
  13. Back in 2007 my mom suggested to a worker they changed the name to "Noisey in Boise." They plain faced said "that's not the name of the show." They apparently don't include humor in the curriculum of this state...
  14. Consider that maybe they aren't afraid and ARE putting SCV ahead in captions they deserve it? And they have beaten BD in said captions a few times? And that's not what is holding them back? Maybe????????
  15. I was referring more to the writing. I love Doug's solos. Always beautiful but that particular one doesnt have the same "chills" with wailing notes all over the place. Yet. Hoping to be won over because the reprise coming out of that is awesome
  16. Might just be me but the trumpets duet for the guitar solo at the end isn't doing anything for me yet. Hopefully when more clean, it will be a bigger moment like last year's screamers. Last year I got goosebumps every time I heard those high notes and runs. This year, not quite yet.
  17. It's very true to their source music. Border line copied and pasted really. That said, I think any and all criticism should be placed on the design team, not the performers. The original song works for what it is, but makes for absolutely trash drum corps. Its a percussion ensemble piece and the brass really does seem an afterthought. Really unfortunate as this low brass line has SERIOUS beef going for them. Dark sonorous sounds being covered by """""art""""""
  18. I really hope you find some source of true happiness in your life. Its kind of sad to see all of your spiteful posts and not see a sad man on the other side f the screen, who can't see through their sadness and loneliness to see the great products being put forth on the field.
  19. Care to give the exact numbers of sections? What I saw wasn't large off from the high cam but I might have miscounted
  20. Hm? They are right there. Right next to the current high score in DCI. Might be hard to see them with your hater shades on :)
  21. My favorite part of every year is when they say dumb things on the podcasts and scores show something totally the opposite of what they said. Smiles, every time lol
  22. I also missed that change! Didn't feel at all like "run, hide behind scrims, layer back on to the field" at all. Very organic on and off. As for the show, it looks like it has the skeleton of a good show. Some clearer concept communication and some spitshine, and this could be a great show. I know there will be changes there, but the part with some of the corps dancing and dabbing and clapping on 1 and 3 and.......yeah that needs to change sooner than later. It was so good up to and leaving that moment. But boy howdy that part is so out of place and crappy high school band levels of cringe.
  23. Saw the preview show online. I already know I will love this show come finals. Brassline already playing with a mature sound and looks like they were playing it smart with the drill. Not many loud AND fast sections in the show but I'm sure they will beef things up more as the season goes on. Colorguard and percussion playing at a great world class level. Very excited to see how this continues to shape up!
