  1. He has a BM for Julliard, though. It makes him very knowledgeable in music (like people on this discussion board, including myself, don’t have a degree in music).
  2. It’s funny how “when is it too much” has been a question since the beginning of DCI, but the “it” changes about every five years or so. And yet, DCI magically thrives.
  3. Yeah, the names change, but the sentiment stays the same. Anyone who wants that should go get it, but I never cared about that in my marching career, and certainly don’t remember anything about scores from my dci days.
  4. I think he (or she) is talking about high school bandwagoners, jumping from corps to corps year to year as “the next unbeatable thing”. You know, that timeless thing that has happened since the beginning of dci.
  5. I guess the real question is (if Spirit is the 12 spot) “can they make their show better than Spirit’s?” Probably not. Spirit’s show is designed and performed better, and still has significant things to change with the show.
  6. My age out year (Spirit 2007), we were 15th in both brass and color guard and still made finals. It’s a GE game, baby.
  7. Sure, it’s more relatable I guess, but still fundamentally terribly designed.
  8. Let’s be real. This year’s PR show is infinitely worse than last year’s, and last year’s show was unwatchable. I feel bad for the corps members. They don’t deserve this.
  9. I saw these guys in Birmingham tonight, and absolutely adored them. Obviously a well taught, mature corps. They should be proud of what they are doing.
  10. So, you can both walk away happy, completely convinced of your rightness! ‘Merica.
  11. I’m sure you aren’t. Personally, I think it is used much more effectively now than when I aged out in 2007, and I’m all about effects being used as effectively as possible. As far as the concept itself, I’m pretty neutral. Good is good.
  12. You’re certainly entitled to your opinion of your personal enjoyment of the use of scatter drill. With the high use of scatter drill in today’s DCI and the rewarding of it through scoring, the judges clearly disagree.
