  1. Love the subtitle for ‘15’s show. Others will staunchly disagree, but here in HomerLAND I believe Crownies will always believe Inferno was gold.
  2. Hey, shouldn't Matt be in full Avon mode, this time of year?!?!
  3. All quiet on the Western front; here and on CC 2020 thread. Trying to take the position that no news is good news. I’ll resume my “head in the sand” position now...
  4. Okay, I’ll take a stab at this one: 1) Crown ‘13 & Blooo ‘16 [Tie]: As a fan of Philip Glass and a Crownie, I was predisposed out the gate to like E=MC^2, but I was never prepared for the emotion that the show evoked in me. The brass was stellar, and contrary to what many have opined over the years, I thought the narration was extremely effective. Insofar as DS^, I am still blown away by the musical and visual energy it delivered. Others have suggested that in time it will be viewed as a watershed program for this activity. I’m inclined to agree. 2) BD ‘14: Didn’t get an opportunity to see that live in ‘14, but have watched [many times] the vid I recorded from the Nashville show. Tilt was tremendous that year, but Felliniesque was flawless. 3) SCV ‘18: Outstanding job with staging, but the screamers alone were worth the price of admission.
  5. For Crown, taking home another Ott to Ft. Mills perhaps ameliorated some of the sting of missing a medal.
  6. I think your idea is positively inspired. Like you, I have zero design expertise, but the concept just seems to have so much potential. While much of the marching arts tends to be trickle down—i.e. DCI—>BOA—no reason that idea couldn’t be, wait for it, elevated to a corps field. BTW, would have used the term “corps stage,” but as much as I’ve raged against “staged” programs, that term is not one I associate with Crown. 😎
  7. With respect to the latter, it is a sentiment widely held in CrownLAND. Too much of a coward to take a position on the former.
  8. Doh!!! Wasn’t paying attention to the date of the last post. Just call me Lazarus... You know, I copied the ‘89 PBS broadcast on my VHS recorder, the night it aired that season. It wasn’t until I purchased the MP3, that I heard the BD’s, non-frack version of If We Were In Love. My understanding is that was from the Semi’s performance. Still standby my recommendation. In fact, Suncoast Sound became one of my fav’s.
  9. You partner, were a member of one bad@$$ line. Loved the closer!!
  10. She’s got a great eye, and as an avid photog, I picture that as one of the greatest summer gigs, ever. Though I imagine she’s got a plethora of collateral responsibilities when she’s not not behind the viewfinder of her Canon/Nikon/SLR of choice.📸
  11. I’m sure there have been countless other examples over the decades, but Madison ‘98 immediately came to mind when I saw this thread. Just watched the vid for the first time in ages. Thanks for the reminder👍
  12. Okay. Summin’ goin’ on here, that CrownFANADDICTS need to know about?!?! Hoping it’s one of those, “nothing to see here folks; move along.” Disinformation also welcome. Provided it’s positive😎 Not prepared for any possible bad news, until after Labor Day...
