  1. Because we are growlers doesn't mean we like growling. Does that mean we don't like ourselves? Hell, I dunno. I forget. Pass me my Geritol, please.
  2. Angry faces and growling in drum corps should be banned. Stoic faces while performing angry and intense music, fine. Faked angry faces doesn't sell me anything.
  3. Totally agree with Fran. For me, it's more about seeing old corps buddies gathered around the Flo. The thrills of the performances are the icing on the cake.
  4. Absolute truth. Thank you, Dad, among thousands of others. It's stunning (or maybe it isn't) how little people know about the events of the World Wars.
  5. I knew the Herb Tarlek look would make a comeback someday. Sign me up.
  6. Surprised me, too. Now I'll believe my poker-buddy/band director when he says just try watching sometime, you'll enjoy it. I have to think rehearsal time for these units is somewhat limited. It's not like they're out on tour for weeks and months at a time. How much time do these bands put in?
  7. Interesting factoid. Geesh, how out of touch am I. I didn't even realize they'd been around for 30 years.
  8. How about if MLB uniforms itself like drum corps uniforms? No wait, it'd be known as MLBWGI. Only 95 more pages to go.
  9. Keep the thread alive! I liked the all black Cadets. Very Cadetish.
  10. ( A sure fire way to keep this thread alive and get it to 100 pages ) I firmly believe this is a sound proposal and worthwhile of lengthy discussion.
  11. Interesting story. I'd never really looked at Zildjan's site before. The price of cymbals (and every other musical instrument I suppose)...aiye carumba.
  12. I don't remember the Charioteers as being all that small, but maybe so. In that same vein and around the midwest, the Osage Precisionaires were always a favorite of mine. Small in maybe 80 members or so, but they sure had some talent. Fox Valley Raiders, too. If you want to go really small and gutsy, the Golden Knights from Kentucky had maybe 18 horns and 12 drummers in the 70s that rocked.
  13. Times 2. On the other hand, if they're recruiting for a production of Guys & Dolls, they may be on to something. Show 'em some BATW Crown brass, guys (and dolls).
