  1. This misses your point, but just wanted to say that while there are only six review posts in the actual Show Reviews section of the forums, pretty much every official show thread had one or two folks who posted reviews within that thread. Unfortunately it’s just really hard to find those individual posts within the tens or hundreds of pages.
  2. BD will be Top Two and DCP will be super salty about it.
  3. Fruhauf (Mandarins' uniform partner) put together this beautiful short film documenting Mandarins making corps history this past weekend. They captured some awesome moments!
  4. I finally caught up reading through this ENTIRE thread (*whew!*). So, this comment will seem waaaaaay out of left field because it's responding to some comments that came up throughout during corps performances but it bugged me so much I needed to respond: Some folks need to remind themselves that a field percussion judge is evaluating the battery AND the pit. I saw several times, "Where's Allan? I guess he planted himself on the front sideline." Ummmm, how about maybe he's doing his job and sampling the pit as well.
  5. It absolutely is true: https://twitter.com/MusicMarching/status/1028423613219786754
  6. It actually reads "Ouroboros," but the unis came in too late in the season to use them last year.
  7. After the reception Crossmen gave Mandarins exiting the ramp from the stadium after their performance, I'm pretty sure Mandarins don't mind at all.
  8. For when both organizations run into financial difficulties and have to merge to survive.
  9. That standing O lasts for the entire last 1 1/2 minutes of their show. And I'm here for that.
  10. Because of the averaging system for caption awards, I think BD is the only one realistically capable of grabbing the Zingali from Boston.
  11. I'm watching high camera, so I'm not able to see the multi-cam shots you're referring to, but the audio on the high-camera is the best it's been all season. I'm also hearing everyone's pit speakers way more than any other show, especially compared to the last two nights. So I'm SUPER hopeful that this means we'll hear SCV's soloists crystal clear tonight.
  12. "Hey guys, since you're bass drummers and can't see where the tarps are to see if they're messed up, use the eyes built into your effing ankles to determine if you need to change technique."
  13. Oh how I wish their rotating prop wasn't quite so clackety, especially considering where the mic is. That noise really ruins that quiet moment for me.
  14. Basses side-stepping + Lack of ability to look down + a tarp slightly raised/bunched up at the edge = bad situation. That's not a technique issue. Correct technique would likely dig their toe right underneath the bunched up tarp and cause the tripping.
  15. So far no microphone knocking noise against the DM podium!
  16. Guard seemed a little rougher today (adrenaline?) but otherwise an extremely respectable and solid run. Proud of them.
  17. It's mostly from Spiriti, the same piece that makes up the front half of their show.
  18. I wonder if DCI already knows which songs they'll have to remove audio for on the blu-rays. That may actually affect my decision in whether or not to buy them.
  19. I was particularly proud last night when the crowd was clapping along to the FREE Players' performance...and everyone was clapping on 2 and 4!
