  1. Great, now I am all pizzed off about the GoT finale again. Ravens totally under-utilized!
  2. I am Joan. I can do better. I will not throw away my shot.
  3. In this new era of staged musicians, Knights taking real risks visually, by moving and playing so much, and with such effective drill. Unfortunately, they are dirty as all get out.
  4. Wow, compared to Cadets, the Knights have such a more coherent design and music philosophy. I loved the flow and smoothness of their musical and visual ideas. Gorgeous music too
  5. Cadets seem to be searching for a new style, but they are not there yet, and it is kind of painful to watch. Their show is made up of bits and pieces of old Cadets and other corps. They don't have a distinctive and coherent new image yet. I am hoping they can achieve this over the next year or so.
  6. I don't understand this arrangement of Bridge Over Troubled Waters. The style kind of wanders all over.
  7. Average price of one pack of cigarettes in Chicago is now $12. I know some young folks who have trouble making ends meet but still buy cigarettes. It is a vicious habit, one of the hardest to break. It is certainly not a corps' job to dictate whether or not a member smokes, but if the corps can dissuade a teen from smoking, everyone is better off.
  8. Holy smokes, I love BK's show! Beautiful brass writings and coherent musical expression.
  9. Does anyone know whose voice is being used in the show? Sounds like a very old Leonard Nimoy.
  10. Loving BK's music, something I have not said in a while.
  11. SCV left me cold at the beginning of the season. I am warming to the show, but it still feels like "Babylon: The B Sides"
  12. holy smokes, end of opener grabbed me for the first time
  13. That last bit of drill looks like the stuff Peter Weber did for SCV a few years ago
  14. My Flo feed is solid and has excellent sound. And my wife and son are out of town tonight, so I turn up the volume as loud as I want. The drum corps gods have smiled on me.
  15. End of Bloo's show is a little abrupt. Must be more in store.
  16. I like the colors Academy has on the field. But the performers in white get lost among the many bright orange bridges scattered about. A lot of corps have distracting props this year, including SCV and Bloo.
  17. I gotta say it, those props remind me of above-ground swimming pools. Or Crown's old trampolines.
  18. oh, look, Hell is literally freezing over! That is neat.
