  1. I'm looking forward to what they do with the long pause before Midnight Radio from Hedwig and Angry Inch.
  2. Rumored show titles I've heard include Croatoan, A Blank Slate, The Void, and 4'33" Times Three. Of course, those rumors have come to me via disembodied whispers I've heard in my sleep. I don't know if they can be trusted.
  3. Maybe "TimpaniCentric" is the show title. Other possibilities... TimpaniRific TimpaniGeddon Breakfast at Timpani's
  4. Real estate wanted: Seeking large grass fields, office space, and storage space to serve as the dedicated rehearsal facilities and administrative offices of non-existent competitive drum and bugle corps. Facilities must be secure, allowing no visitors ever. Will consider real estate that's confirmed to be haunted. No money available for transaction.
  5. For sale: one witch-burning stake. (Not guaranteed to burn witches. No returns. No refunds.)
  6. For sale: two giant lower-case letter "i"s. Thinking of founding a startup? Come up with a name that starts with a lower-case i. Position them at the front and back entrances of your new venture.
  7. For sale: several uniforms with large eyeballs on the side. Suitable for your low-budget sci-fi film, or perhaps for your religious cult.
  8. For sale: most of a church. You'll have to provide the actual building.
  9. Performing their 2017 program ... ... ... ... Drum Corps International is proud to present, INT! ... ...
  10. They had the letters in "hide" reversed for a while. I saw a recent video where they at least had the "h" flipped back forward. The "i" still had a little curve in it, but the other two letters were cut off in the video, so I don't know if they changed those.
  11. Symbolism could be an important component of the show. The opening pose by the two guard members on the DM platforms kind of resembles the Hanged Man... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hanged_Man_(Tarot_card) Or maybe an upside-down version of the Vriksasana or yoga tree pose (some mythology attached to that). The Blue Knights seem to be throwing in a lot of poses and hand gestures (maybe from things like mudras or other hand gestures seen in iconography of saints, etc). Almost seems like you'd have to watch the show 150 times to see what every member is cramming into the thing. I liked that it was visually busy when I saw the preview show (the eyes on the uniforms pretty much demand it) -- that element seemed a little scaled back at DATR, although it's possible the show was just cleaner, plus I was sitting further back on that viewing.
  12. A search on "iedjh," with the j on the ground, turns up life path and numerology-related things like this... http://acronymsmeanings.com/full-meaning-of/iedjh/iedjh-stands-for-iedjh-means "IEDJH has a life path of 9. IEDJH means: With a Life Path 9, your numbers are (9, 18/9, 27/9, 36/9). The Life Path 9 indicates that you entered this life with an abundance of dramatic feelings coupled with a strong sense of compassion and generosity. The key to the nature of a Life Path number 9 person is in their humanitarian attitude. Even the average possess extremely compassionate tendencies with life path 9. Usually this number produces a person who is very trustworthy and honorable, and can accommodate any kind of prejudice. Obviously this is a pretty tall order, but you are actually a person who for individuals less fortunate than yourself feel very deeply, and if you are able to help, sure. 9 is the highest of the single digit numbers, holds an elevated position with respect to the responsibility for mankind. ..." http://www.whatstandsfor.com/meaning/iedjh "What does IEDJH mean? This is a numerology analysis of the abbreviation. The meaning stands for ideals, knowledge, spirituality, altruism, selflessness, sensitivity, compassion and generosity. Equally it is able to be a symbol of withdrawal, reflection, shyness and austerity. Representing intuition and spirituality. The esoteric meaning of this path is the divine spirit. In astrology it is related to the planet Mars and the signs of Capricorn and Scorpio. ..."
  13. I mentioned part of this in another thread, but I noticed that their backward-lettered "hide" at the beginning of the closer connected up with one of the "i" props. Reading backwards, that gives us "iedih." (Or maybe "iedjh" since the "i" on the ground is curved.) The first result I got from Googling was "Instituto de Estudos e Desenvolvimento Integral Humano." (Or "Institute of Studies and Integral Human Development," if Google Translate is being accurate.) Maybe that's where the first clue about the Blue Knights' show is being kept. This could be something like a Dan Brown novel. :-) Also, at the same point in the show, that same "i" prop is circled by those curved pieces of guard equipment in an "O" shape, which means the next clue is on Io. :-P It may take us decades, or even centuries, to figure out the Blue Knights' show.
  14. They have two setting suns on the field this year. Or is one of them rising? (I know, they're probably eyes, but they look like they could double as suns.)
