  1. You wait until the sousaphone lines start using glitter covers on the bells and waving them in high step!
  2. You’re missing some great shows
  3. 7th Regiment's cymbal line was working it well in Open Class
  4. Heh. Yeah those Sondheim covers have a lot going for them. That's where the Pretty Women/Ladies who lunch arragement my high school did a year or so later came from.
  5. Into the Light. Such a well done show. Immortal holds a soft spot for me as well though.
  6. BK this year. Been giving that views and listens since finals night and it's impressively seamless.
  7. We did her meledy of Pretty Women/Ladies Who Lunch for a closer in high school one year. It was pretty ok. The swells and phrases of Pretty Women were great to play. Does this mean we'd also need a competing Bette Midler show in the same season though?
  8. End of Gabriel's Oboe on finals night. Crown REALLY got that piece working.
  9. Where the Heart is. This show grew on me through the season and by season's end, along with BK's show that year, were the emotional tugs of the night. The guard that year was PHENOMENAL. I think they placed 4th on finals night. Honorable mention to Game On. That show was better than its placement. That was the year the Cavies got a the ick bug and had to miss some shows. The development of Game On never got entirely finished it seemed.
  10. If not DCB from Academy, I'd have gone with Sideshow as well. There were flaws and it never quite got as clean as it ought to have, but it was a great take on the 'circus show' theme. The guard work was super creative with things like the conjoined twins work setting up two people working with one flag.
  11. Ooh this a tough one. Lots of good shows. I'll go with Animal Farm though. That ballad has gotten a lot of relistens for me. Avian, Continuum, New York Morning, and Life Rite After are hard to say no to.
  12. Philosoraptor muses: "In the tic era would this count as a tic against the guard or the brass?"
  13. The detail of the pattern is movement.
  14. I'm the one vote for Corpsmen 2014. During the season...it wasn't all that but when putting on the finalists for a long drive I''d reordered the tracks for 12-1 rather than 1-12 and hearing that show's energy an verve to open led me to discover so much more to it than I had during the season.
  15. Diamanté has a connection to Mandarins now too. You could see a lot of WGI influence in their guard book as well.
  16. I threw this together on another thread about Bloo. But I’m less convinced Bloo is the team to do it. I’d almost rather see and Open Class corps take it so the arrangements weren’t trying to do so much to get demand in. ——- A show that started with "Dearly Beloved......" could hype all it wanted. Alright reps:  Let's Go Crazy {Preshow...Drum majors, is your corps ready? organ glissando, "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called....life". DCI is proud to present, _______! [music begins]) Sexy MF (with percussion features worked in) Purple Rain (power ballad) [1! 2! 1! 2! 3! 4!] Raspberry Beret/Litte Red Corvette meledy/mashup Purple Rain snippets tie it throughout. Adding more to this....guard HAS to have a big moment in heels
  17. Gabriel’s oboe. -Crown Hurt - BK ordinary world - southwind
  18. You’d be surprised what I’d believe
  19. Why do you trash the apples and hate on the oranges! Omg you monster.
