DCP Fanatic (3/3)



  1. Things tend to build up if you haven’t “performed” in two years
  2. I’m guilty of not giving a couple corps a fair listen especially if I’ve been sitting through quarter and semi-finals. Fatigue sets in. BK has one of my favorite brass sounds. The best way I can describe it is crisp and refreshing.
  3. I would highly recommend going back and revisiting some of their shows now that you’ve been wowed. That ‘21 horn line didn’t come out of nowhere 😉
  4. I hope they can come back stronger than ever. Their design team put together a fantastic show last summer. They didn’t compromise quality because of the abbreviated season. They showed us you could put on a show that was southern to the core without having to blast Georgia or Swanee. Are they the first corps to bring American Folk Art to the field?
  5. If it’s inspired by Kerouac I’ll be expecting a lot of speed. He loved his uppers lol
  6. Well look at that! You can teach an OldSnareDrummer new tricks lol. I’m looking forward to familiarizing myself with the rest of the book
  7. The good part is you have plenty of time to familiarize yourself with the music.
  8. I just listened to American Gothic. Fun piece. I heard occasional nods to Copland and Ives. I wonder if they’ll include the violin soloist?
  9. You have no idea whether or not they were groomed. Also, you failed to mention anything of the adults who took advantage. Sounds a bit like victim blaming to me and not holding the men (I’m assuming) accountable. That mindset is a big part of the problem.
  10. Todd Ryan. DII Pioneer late 90s. Blue Devils (?)
  11. Lower level by OC standards as well. 36th place. 5.65 below the next WC corps. At least they went out with a bang.
  12. What kind of specialty? Crown brass is darn special already. It makes me think they’re looking for a screamer.
  13. Hookworms are fascinating. The way they end up in the intestines is ingenious. They enter between the toes, work their way into your bloodstream and eventually the lungs. Wait, they’re not done yet! Once in the lungs they cause the host to cough, bringing them up, at which point the host swallows them and they then end up in the intestines. They know enough to keep their numbers at a level that keeps their host (barely) alive. Hookworm infections have all but disappeared in the American South since the advent of indoor plumbing but the after effects lived on for years through an unjust stereotype. https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-stuff-you-should-know-26940277/episode/southerners-arent-lazy-and-dumb-they-29467506/
  14. Pageantry Parasite? (Even though a leach is a parasite I like the alliterative quality)
