  1. Would it be the same if BD or Coats we’re performing that show, or would it be considered genius ?? Who knows? I think other corps would have very different visual designs if given the same arrangements, and I would be the first to admit that many of those designs would be better. posted from the DrumScorps app
  2. This pretty well is the case with the entire fanbase as well I think. Their visual programs in particular leave a lot of people scratching their head, but even then they’re able to do whatever it is they’re doing effectively (whatever that means). Their GE scores certainly seem to reflect that no one is quite sure what to do with BK. posted from the DrumScorps app
  3. These will be very interesting recaps. posted from the DrumScorps app
  4. Ok, Bloo, your singer gets a pass this year. I can’t not like that. posted from the DrumScorps app
  5. This tuba bit plays to my soul. posted from the DrumScorps app
  6. I feel like Bloo this year is what Madison Scouts should have been, especially the back half. posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. Alright Bloo, I want some phat tuba sounds tonight. posted from the DrumScorps app
  8. Are you going to cry now...or just accept that you don't have the facts. Write Crown a letter and tell them how unhappy you are. I’m not sure what you’re trying to provoke from me here. I wrote to DCI last season about this very thing. Obviously, they received enough feedback to address it in the rules conference, but that went nowhere. posted from the DrumScorps app
  9. Crown does not amp their brass. Those are likely recording mics for Flo/DCI to broadcast. There is a difference between a recording Mic and a projection Mic. Also, some microphones are placed in front for solos and can be turned off and on when needed. Stop throwing out accusations until you know the facts or do some research on these things. Your comments all night have been way off base and negative. The broadcast mics for Flo don’t disappear between corps or move (the ones I saw for Crown certainly are absent for SCV). If they were mics for soloists, they wouldn’t be taller than the MMs by a head or more. Crown seems to have used them for highlighting small ensemble work. There were times when sections, particularly high brass, were staged in front of the mics. I don’t know what it’s like live, but over the broadcast you can hear the time delay between the speakers and acoustic brass sound. posted from the DrumScorps app
  10. You’re not wrong. Knowing this activity though, I’m not the only one with these opinions. posted from the DrumScorps app
  11. So you were being SERIOUS with this post? Oye! It makes me sad as you aren’t getting or are connected to a particularly STELLAR year of DCI. The thing is, on a performance level, I can tell it’s a stellar year. Talent is soaring through the activity. It’s design that turns me off. Amplification of brass, unattractive costumes, sound bytes and prerecorded effects, singing (even though the singers themselves are excellent to exceptional). All of these elements are usually so jarring that I’m no longer immersed in the experience. posted from the DrumScorps app
  12. I'm really partial to their 2014 show as well but I agree. Their music book and sound stepped up in a big way this year! Cavies 2014 is a joy to listen to. posted from the DrumScorps app
  13. Well you have been a negative nancy for nearly every finalist corps tonight except BK so I'm not surprised I’m quite aware. At this point, I greatly enjoy the vast majority of non-finalist shows. Blue Stars, Crossmen, Mandarins, and BK I greatly enjoyed. Phantom needs... something... for their show, I’m not sure what, but I don’t dislike it. But there are so many little design decisions in the top few corps from 2016 on that just bother me. posted from the DrumScorps app
  14. Just not a fan of the top 7 right now. SCV is ok I guess, and the back half of Bloo has a lot of energy, but otherwise music and design-wise I’m just not engaged. It’s entirely the fault of the designers too. There’s no denying the talent and hard work of the members. But, meh. posted from the DrumScorps app
  15. Same reason dogs licks their butts: Because they can. Hah! posted from the DrumScorps app
