  1. FWIW, I was on the 50 3/4 up the stadium ideal location and equivalent to where Judges would be.
  2. Last night in Winston-Salem Bluecoats Goo was almost unbearable through the end of Elenor Rigby. Amazing show, but that lessened my enjoyment. Then Crown came on and the ballad was so nice and clear. Not loud but natural. I was in Bliss.
  3. Was at Winston-Salem last night. I can confirm the brass sounded better. Not amazing, but better. Blue Stars went on even earlier when the sun was blazing down on them and that was probably a factor. My major gripe (as reflected by Vis Analysis scores) is that it is impossible to read the show visually. The props are great and a huge step up from anything Cadets have used before. There is just no visual clarity or cohesion at all. I can't even tell what they are trying to get across visually. I really hope they are able to get a top tier visual design team in during the off season.
  4. I hope the tarps work better live. Not happening on Flo. Amazing performers though. This show just doesn't have that magical feeling last year's did.
  5. While there is a lot about the show design that I do not like/does not make sense. These are neat to me. A cool Victorian take on the shako....It doesn't have to look exactly like the old shako to be effective. The old shako would have looked stupid.
  6. I agree they aren't. Also what is with the male/female symbols on the weapons and sets. Are they trying to say men and women are against each other? Are they saying men and women need to work together? I guess it is open to interpretation like many shows including BD always are. It's just not done very well right now.
  7. What happened with Cadets percussion number tonight, or is BK percussion that good?
  8. That surprises me given what SCV has been doing the past couple years. With final inside now they make more sense now than say 1999 LOL...
  9. Thank god there is something different LOL....
  10. Anyone know if Cadets have a new ending yet?
  11. SCV too cut and paste from last year. Bloo is highly entertaining but I worry about them maxing out. I'm guessing BD at this point. It will come down to how judges interpret what "GE" values the shows have.
  12. Bloo is phenomenal just wish they marched and played at the same time more.
  13. This makes you realize how dependent corps are now on electronics. During a regular show now I sit there thinking, WOW they are so much better than we were. Seeing this I realize that a lot is bells and whistles of electronics, speakers, piped in bass etc...
  14. Cadets schedule this year really isn't conducive to making changes to the show. They barely have a day off much less several days off in a row. Not sure if the reasoning behind this was to fit more shows and parades in to make money, but I really hope they have the time to get a restaged closer in before San Antonio. At least I really hope that is coming, the props should be utilized other than facing backwards at the back of the field, I would create two bridges along the front and have the corps on them. Not copying SCV last year, but a similar concept. Regardless something needs to be done. The end of Do Better to the end of the show has no effect.
  15. Yep, that should encourage the kids. Visual Analysis - Yikes. But it's pretty accurate IMHO. 😱
  16. Yes, it's really neat with a big feather similar to Crown 13-15
  17. Agree, wasn't initially thinking about Crossmen and BK.
  18. Yep, one would think 2 of the 3 will be finalists. Well 2 of 4 including Crossmen. Pulling for Spirit this year! Of course we don't know where Blue Knights fit in.
  19. Score inflation much....lol. Not meaning that for Bloo. They should already be higher to me it is such a detailed show already. But the other corps jumped a lot.
  20. SCV gets it right in my opinion. It's at least well choreographed angst. The others just look like disorganized messes.
  21. Haha, yes and probably from an upper middle class H.S. in a Dallas suburb. Flower Mound or some such place, maybe the Woodlands....
