  1. probably doing a spliff in the Poconos waiting for drum corps rumors to get real juicy!!
  2. I live in Brooklyn and last night was the first night I didn't hear ambulances racing through my neighborhood since late february..Surreal is an understatement...My neighbor is a nurse at one of the most crowded hospitals ..She's spent but every morning she goes into battle, without assurance of masks, gowns ' and gloves....this is America?..pray for those on the front line..Peace
  3. I forgot about Randall's Island...practicing on the pavement at night under the bridge was crazy..great acoustics though
  4. First...Shea Stadium..1964..St. Rocco's..Last..Roosevelt Stadium( jersey city),1970..N.Y. Skyliners Best...Roosevelt Stadium...Worst....Shea Stadium
  5. Any idea as to what music would have been played in 2020, had the season not been cancelled?
  6. Also under reported was the death of McCoy Tyner..one of the greatest jazz pianist of our time and the perfect compliment to John Coltrane ..peace
  7. Theme from the 1964 movie:"The girl with green eyes"
  8. NYC on probable house confinement by end of day..only gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacies etc(vital services) will remain open..be safe..peace
  9. For the first time in my 60 year love affair with drum corps, me and my FAMILY including the grands, are going to finals...or at least that's what we planned..hotels,plane tickets etc., all accounted for..if no drum corps I don't know what we'll do, but I guess I better look at alternatives..oh well......Peace
  10. A contributor to this forum mentioned hearing the famous shout out in the 1970's..If any of you still have vinyl you can hear it in the 60's ..particularly recordings of the DREAM in jersey city..peace
  11. BTW..On the east coast the cry was "DAZE ALWAYS READY'..a little combination of Brooklynese and southern twang'' ..lol ..peace
  12. I'm only guessing, but I think it goes back to the early recordings of drum corps where people knew they'd be forever immortalized on wax ..That and an overzealous parent or two..imo..peace
  13. From vinyl to tape to cd to streaming...for all the memories...thank you..R I P
  14. The movie "The Sandpiper" has many interludes of beautiful music...The hit song "The shadow of your smile" came from this movie, as I recall..peace.
  15. Though the poster's remarks were inappropriate. let's not act as if the activity has not become more eroticized over the years..and most of the this has been in the color guard arena..27th's color guard was fully covered as I recall and they were great!..Move forward a few decades and we hear comments about PR's color guard being "sexy" in the early 2000's..comments on this forum!..So is the activity, in it's desire to satisfy the designers, allowing the hyper sexualization of the guard or is this the inevitable end of ART for art's sake?...peace
  16. Patience is truly virtuous....unless you're a drum corps fan ..lol....I'm just pleased that the Cadets appear to be recovering from 3+ years of meandering mediocrity...many on here are knowledgeable about financials, so I leave that area of expertise to them..for me, I just want to see the Cadets represent the tradition east coast drum is famous for...peace
  17. NO more bad juju !! be positive..peace
  18. I guess it's the difference in aesthetics
  19. I won't probably watch this show but I have a great respect for their activity...SAFETY is an issue in their activity as it is in DCI..They've eliminated moves deemed too risky for the performers because of injuries..DCI, with the prop revolution/evolution would do well to also consider "how much is too much?'...IMHO..peace
