  1. It's not like I didn't watch them via Flo, I just haven't been to Grand Nationals in person since 2015. Other obligations and the such.
  2. 2015 was the last time I attended Grand Nationals, and what a year it was. Hebron with that silky ballad. William Mason with the retelling of West Side Story. Broken Arrow with the Shostakovich/Horse Head show. I LOVED Grand National Finals that year. I can't wait to go back next year.
  3. But that just causes more unbalance! We must be rid of them! Ban all microphones, speakers, crotales, marimbas, vibes, synthesizers, gongs, and concert bass drums! If it can't be marched on the field we must be rid of it! πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
  4. For once...I agree with everything you said. Now I feel like I need to contemplate my life and figure out where I took this turn...
  5. Crown had execution. Bluecoats had effect. We all know what wins these days...
  6. 2007 - Triple Crown: This was the first time I had gotten to see a live show, at Drums Across the Bluegrass, and the lineup was stellar in my opinion. I got to see Cadets, Phantom, and Crown that year at one show, all will fantastic shows. Crown just blew me away with a fun and energetic show. This will forever be my number one Crown show, and is in my top 5 all time shows. 2009 - The Grass is Always Greener 2016 - Relentless 2013 - e=mc2 2003 - Bellisimo!
  7. I honestly don't know what I would do with myself. A huge hole would be left in my heart and in the lineup...
  8. I agree. Maybe keeping it and tweaking it throughout the next year could give the design team to really find their niche and click.
  9. Don't assume my comment was aimed at you. That's how arguments start. Lol.
  10. I didn't know we had a resident Seer. How cool that someone can predict the future!
  11. I was a 7th grader in marching band (yes we marched 7th graders), and we were come off our 4th state championship. We had beat our rival all year and took down some big names in our state, falling only to 3 bands all season. We won regionals and came into semis thinking we had it in the bag. Warm-up went per the usual, but when we got to the field something happened. We had gotten a little too cocky and sure of ourselves and the impending state title, and mother nature said "not today!" The wind picked up which hadn't happened during any performance that day before or after us, and being a smaller band of 66 members total, carried our sound with it. We placed 4th in prelims... Music 1 - 8th Music 2 - 7th Visual 1 - 2nd Visual 2 - 4th Music Effect - 1st Visual Effect - 2nd Thankfully our state takes 4 in each class to finals, and we had made it in by half a point. We lost captions that we had been sweeping all year long against bands 3 times our size. Finals starts and we go on last in our class at 7:45. Our director had reemed us for the 3 hours between semis and finals, saying how we deserved to be better to ourselves because we deserved better period. Our rival was one of the biggest names in Class A BOA currently, and were standing on the sidelines in the endzone to watch us as is common courtesy in our state for the band who performs right after you. After the entire crowd of around 14,000 people jumps to their feet on our horns down, they knew they were about to lose for the 2nd year in a row. Standing in finals retreat we all held hands, and offered hands to our rival but they refused, and the announcer pauses for what seems like a lifetime, which in reality was only around 30 seconds, before announcing 2nd place. We had came back from a 3.7 deficit to win our schools 5th state title and last. Our program hit hard times a few years back, but is back on the upswing and I couldn't be more proud of the current kids having made finals the last 3 years for the first time since 2007. If anyone wants to see a video of our last championshio, let me know and I'll send it through message to avoid copyrights.
  12. It's so good...I love it. I only wish we could have heard it outdoors as an ensemble...or even indoors if anybody has a video from rehearsals.
  13. I'm assuming since they released this they're scrapping the show? 😭
  14. Never said we were. Sorry I wanted to say something about how Kentucky is responding to the pandemic. This hillbilly who thinks Kentucky is the only state in the U.S. will crawl back into the holler now.
  15. I doubt it since we only have just below 100 cases and everyones not going bat caca crazy since our governor is placing a sense of calm collect over us every day at 5 p.m. unlike other states who's leaders seem incompetent during their press conference they've streamed online.
  16. I'm so glad we have a competent Governor. If only every other state in the US could have someone like Andy Beshear. Kentucky is well ahead of this thing currently and will only continue to stay ahead. Life is pretty normal here even during this epidemic. Only things different are no dine in at restaurants, no church services, and bingo halls are closed until further notice. I hope every state can find them an Andy Beshear, but until then I'll keep the other states in my thoughts and prayers.
  17. I haven't either. My generation has lived through some end of the world scenarios, i.e. Y2K, bird flu, swin flu, mad cow, 2012, etc. but I've never seen people go absolutely wild at the grocery store like this, and I honestly blame the media. Here in Kentucky it's not been as bad because our governor and local governments have kept us up-to-date as much as possible, but the fact we're running out of toilet paper when this is a respiratory illness, it just doesn't make any sense. In my opinion it shows the stupidity of our citizens.
  18. It's real, but I honestly believe this is just going to end up being a new seasonal illness like the Flu. It's just being blown up, in my belief, because it's something new.
  19. Plenty of schools in Kentucky would be willing if we had a show this year. πŸ˜’ My neck of the woods, Kentucky, has honestly handled this better than most I've seen. Sure we still have people trying to buy everything off the shelves, but that's because of the media fear mongering. 🀦
  20. I'm glad someone finally said it so I didn't have to...
  21. The person works in the food industry and I ate there while they were working just two days ago. A little scary. Lol.
  22. We now have a confirmed case in Kentucky, and it's a LITTLE too close to home.
  23. Wow, you guys marched corps, know the "news" before it ever hits the stands, know the truth from the fake "news" regardless of personal knowledge of the individual, AND are all doctors or top professionals in the medical field? I can't believe you find time to post on DCP!
