  1. On paper, this show might seem to be a typical smallish lineup, weeknight show. However, there are a couple of subplots afoot which might prove interesting. Anyone live streaming tonight from the show?
  2. LOL! The stilts are deceptive...he actually is a very big guy! :)
  3. As I said, it is open for debate. JurassicLancer I believe you about the number of drill sets. It just doesn't seem like it to me. Again..just a reaction.
  4. A few thoughts on the Bluecoats: I love this show musically. Perhaps it is my age (59) but I can identify with 95% of what they are playing, and they play it very well. They will absolutely be one of my favorite corps from this year to listen to in the car in the future. Having said that, I think there may be an area of vulnerably for them visually. For the third year in a row, the visual design seems very compressed due to all the props, and most of their movement seems like running follow the leader 2 across up, over, and down the ramps..then into hold sets. Is it effective? Yes. Does it compare with the visual complexity of Crown and Boston (each of whom have over 190 drill sets this year)? That is debateable, I suppose. Now, I am a designer and I get the fact that there is no place on the sheets for a set count....lol. But BLOO is already maxing this caption out with an excellent performance level. I wonder as Crown and Boston get cleaner, if the GE numbers might change.
  5. I don't think anyone should underestimate the Cadets. I believe the talent level is there and the members will draw energy and inspiration from being part of an 80+ year old organization. One personal note: I think these uniforms WOULD lend themselves well to having shakos added.....just a thought. :) Good luck guys!
  6. I don't know what you are talking about. BAC is at an all time high this year design wise....you admit as much in the above comments. Who says the design team didn't "dig deep"? I think they did. The live audiences have bern going crazy for the product. And yes, unlike their former gigs, they do have an extremely high level of autonomy. In Boston, the management focuses on fundraising and providing the members with the best experience possible. Boston has never been this close ti the top. It is another step in the progression.
  7. I still can't get over the fact that some folks are proclaiming Boston can't do this or that simply based on the video of the first show... Without even seeing it in person. They may come in 1st or 6th, but to "guarantee" what their ceiling is seems disenguous. If you are that good you really should get your judging card.
  8. I simply wouldn't state anything like that about any corps, but that's just me.
  9. My dear queenie, you are entitled to your own opinion. I just can't imagine going on dcp and stating with such confidence that there is literally no way any corps could not improve and close in on a couple corps above them. That's what the WOW was about.
  10. If there are 6 corps within 2 points of each other, nobody is running away with anything....not yet at least.
  11. Kevin, will you be able to honor us with your livestreaming feedback tonight?
