    I just got an email callback from the Cadets!

    Nevermind that I'm 40 and never auditioned, but I'm pretty excited about it!

    (Is GH somehow still bumbling this corps?)



    That’s awesome! Congrats! But since you won’t be needing those seats in front of me at LOS,  I have a couple of friends who would be interested in buying them from you...

    No dog in the Super Bowl fight for me. Sorry, my fellow BD fans.  LOL. Can't wait until late August, when college ball resumes.

    The Ravens (my current hometown team) aren't there... the Eagles (my sweetie Brenda's favorite) aren't there... and the Jets (fan since their AFL days)... well... I'll be reincarnated as Gandhi before they get there again. :tongue:


    OK, just to get this straight ... you’re a Rutgers fan AND a Jets fan? And I thought being a Lions fan was as low as you can go!🤣

  3. Hi everyone! Bloo has not gone inactive despite the lack of recent posts. Auditions have gone very well. Can you envision having almost 100 trumpets audition, alone? Or can you imagine a 100% Bloo vet snare line?

    The design team has many decisions made and are busy working to bring Bloo to the next level. 

    I can’t wait to see what drum corps’ mad scientists bring to the field this year!

    Oh, and no drama.

  4. Even in ‘79, 27th was top of the pack with synced quints. Now 7s and 8s aren’t too uncommon. Look at BD’s opener last year ... were those 8s or 9s in sequence over the doors? And they were clean AF. And they didn’t even win the Zingali!  The talent in today’s guards is unbelievable!

    DCI has become a total joke. Complain about us dinos all you want,  but back then corps fees weren't 2K per year.

    I am not sure how to address your incredulity that corps fees are $2000. But I am curious, how many WC corps have fees less than $3000? How many have fees more than $4000? $5000? 

    Now you can be incredulous.

    So. That's over for a couple years.  Does Bloo's counter proposal tip their hand that they were on the pro-WW side of things?  Will this incur backlash? Will FloMarching send 'investigative reporters' to create stories and get fired within a week for making comments that draw criticism?  Winter storylines could be juicy!


    * See my post in the Bluecoats’ thread.

  7. Yes, Bloo was in favor of adding woodwinds. Now it is no secret I am opposed to WWs, but to be fair, Bloo only wanted WWs as soloists or small ensembles, and they wanted to pull them from the brass section—not as stand alone WW players and Bloo really didn’t want to add another bus to accommodate another 50 members.  Now, I know ... camel noses and tents and all that,  but what Bloo was even more interested in, was the live sampling proposal that did indeed pass... so all in all, a win as far as Bloo is concerned. And that’s the tea, as far as I know.

    Just thinking into the future here...

    I'm pretty sure that the first time that I see flutes pop to the press box... I will throw up in my mouth a little.

    Pretty sure.

    Just musing here:

    Given the construction and nature of flutes ... what’s the point of them popping to the press box?
