  1. There is an annual 48-Hour Film Project competition I will sometimes help with musical scoring. This year a team entered a film called "Birds" -- about the scourge of Bird scooters in Atlanta, more scooters than people. I think it made the top 5 by the judges and the audience loved it, though I suspect the indy filmmaking crowd would probably be pro-scooter.
  2. Do you stay awake all night thinking up these irrefutable axioms?
  3. I have heard they purchased new old-style uniforms a few years ago, then went with themed uniforms since then. Makes sense to bring them out at Retreat and I'm thinking the MMs would love it.
  4. There are those who will say: 1 1 1 1 .... And those who will say: 3 3 4 3 ... Pick your camp. I won't ignore the obvious historical pattern, while at the same time rooting for my personal favorites. Which has to include BD in 2020 -- we have a hometown age-out trumpet player there (hopefully) for next season.
  5. Did you get PC right? If you did, let's go to Vegas! i was amazed and very pleased and I'm a huge PC homer.
  6. It was also like that up in the 640s, though you probably couldn't hear us -- surrounded by Bloo fans who also showed lots of support for Crown. The Wife always brags she saw Spartacus live at Finals and then there's the 2013 Crown show. This performance ranks up there, too, and will always be fondly remembered. Thanks, Crown (everybody)!!!
  7. No -- they're gonna get rid of trombones, but leave the glissandos in.
  8. They had minimal props in 2013: the red bench and rolling bass drums.
  9. My only prediction for 2019 (if I recall correctly) was that Matt Harloff would not lose another Ott award. I was right. I expect he wants to keep it, too.
  10. Why is there no where to eat in Indy after Finals? We finally decided to go to Hooters which is open till 1am. The Wife made sure I was glued to my phone on DCP. Here's an idea: Expand the FoodFest to FoodFest After Hours. A half dozen local food trucks located in a common spot close to LOS would do a tremendous business. It would also let the Corps food truck folks not have to worry about a Finals snack. You heard it here first.
  11. Been tried and been hacked. It was tried a few years ago and the "secret code" given to the folks at the shows was, of course, leaked by one Corps to the world. Their fans dutifully voted it fan favorite by quite a margin if I recall correctly.
  12. Here's what I want to see next year: At the closer that awesome company front all the way down to the sideline. Then they march back pulling the Crown set out of the sideline. And the crowd goes wild!
  13. Sad as pink slips are, they result in new job offers both to old staff with different Corps and to newcomers -- of which I know quite a few. Here's to everyone finding that special job for next season!
  14. Crossmen tribute to "sister" Corps Spirit of Atlanta. posted from the DrumScorps app
  15. I recall they have in the past. Hope so this year, too. Went back to the hotel before I&E awards and the age out ceremony. They had Flo on the big TV in the lounge. Don't know how long they had been watching.
  16. The line in front of the Bluecoats souvie booth is insane. Stretches all the way across one of the entrances to the stadium, past the large DCI booth, to the escalator. And there is a order line and a payment line. Event staff having to direct traffic. I wonder why? Go Bloo! Go BD! Duke it out! We'll be happy to just sit back and watch.
  17. I shared your research over on the PC Parents FB group. So cool! Thx!!!
  18. I have a fairly new Samsung TV, but I don't think it has a browser. For a while I used the browser on my Panasonic BluRay. Then I got the FireTV. I downloaded a browser and it worked OK, but not rock solid. This season someone here told me of the FloSports app which works great. I'm thinking it is streamlined for just connecting to Flo and streaming their content. That's my go to unless something better comes along -- 4K and 7.2 audio.
  19. BZ, Chief! (BZ = Well Done to you landlubbers)
  20. One more feature request that came up during Finals week: I love seeing the performance times for the Corps during Prelims, Semis, and Finals. Very useful! When you start posting scores during Prelims and Semis, it'd be nice if the Corps with scores showed the scores (and the preliminary recaps) and the Corps who hadn't yet competed continued to show their performance times. (Gotta plan that potty break.) Thx!
  21. Just to make sure I didn't confuse you -- you mentioned the DrumScorps app. The issue I'm seeing is with the forums in the regular Safari browser. I DO have a feature request I'll post on the DrumScorps app thread in the WC Forum. Thx!
