  1. This. I marched in 01-05 and have been a member of this forum since 04. I started losing interest a good decade ago when they started allowing electronics, but I still toughed it out a few years and went to some shows just to support the activity. When I noticed Drum Corps was making a concerted effort to switch from marching in uniforms to dancing in costumes, I just lost interest entirely. I honestly only came back to DCP after a several year break just this morning because I saw a reddit post and remembered I had an account here. If the recent news about all the drama going on is any indica
  2. The "you can get more out of cymbals by putting them in the pit" argument has always been spurious. That can be said of the entire drum corps minus the guard. You can always get more musicality out of percussion by making them stationary, giving them more instruments and so for. You can get more out of brass by sitting them down in chairs and letting them play concert instruments. Drum corps has always been about adding a marching and visual element to the music. Why march at all if you're just going to say "you can do more with ___ by putting them in the pit"? That can be said of anything.
  3. I go into drum corps around 200 when I was still in high school and ended up marching from 2002-2005, aging out as a cymbal player in Crossmen. I went to a few shows in 2006 but ended up joining the military and spending some time in Afghanistan. Well now I'm back, I moved from Michigan to Texas, and am thinking about heading over to see the San Antonio show this summer. My question is, what did I miss in the past 6-8 years of drum corps? I was sad to hear that the Glassmen folded, as I used to march there as well. I've seen a couple YouTube videos of some 2013 shows, and I remember all the d
  4. This Thursday, I will be attending the Glassmen All-Star Review in Toledo. The last drum corps show I saw was the same show in 2006. The changes in drum corps that went on in the middle of this decade such as the addition of amplification and lots of signing and narration put me off to drum corps a great deal. That, in addition to my goings on with the Army precluded me from seeing any shows since early 2006. So my question is, what can I expect? What other new rules or additions have occurred in drum corps in the past few years? Will I see woodwinds on the field? Have they, dare I hope
  5. Vista and XP, firefox and IE. Both on a laptop and desktop using my home net and school net. I'm thinking it's a DCI problem, but it's been like this for a few days, and I wouldn't think they would leave a broken media download center up for days on end without fixing it.
  6. Well I think I can get much faster confirmation as to whether or not it's even a DCI.org problem (or maybe just a problem with my machine) from here rather than wait a few days for an IT guy to read my email and feel like responding.
  7. I'm trying to download some APDs from DCI.org, and I keep getting a script error page when I try to checkout. Is anyone else having this same problem?
  8. No, I don't really like any of those shows except for Cavies 06. And I will be in South America at the time as well.
  9. I am currently enlisted in the Army National Guard. I joined in fall of 06. And I joined knowing that I would be going to combat at some point. The only real difference now between Active and Reserve is where they spend their time when not deployed. Active stays on a base and does Army stuff as a 9-5 job. Reserve stays in their home state and maintains a civilian job. Once deployed, there is zero difference. I like it like that. I didn't join the Guard because I don't want to deploy. I like the idea of going over to Iraq for a tour or two. But I also want to get ahead with the other
  10. To be honest, the activity has already changed to something I don't enjoy anymore. This is the first time I have been on this forum in probably 6 months. I have every top 12 corps and some 12- mp3s from 94-04, but after 04 there are maybe 5 shows total that I can stand listening to. I don't know why, but I just don't really find the new direction of drum corps to be something I like. There was a lot of talk a few years ago about how some people would leave drum corps if amps, singing, and electronics became the norm. Some doubted whether those people were serious about leaving. Well it b
  11. Mid 90's to mid 00's. 1995-2003 to be precise. Don't like much before or after those years.
  12. It's a little early. Try asking on Drumhard.com in a week or two when all the members get back.
