  1. Ugh, I am not surprised and was expecting this. I just hope this all ends soon, but probably not as soon as I would like though,. It just means I will have to take a ton of time off for summer 2021 to make up for this year.
  2. I unfortunately think DCI for this year is history. I just don't see this abating within time to be able to carry it through.
  3. It is the first day of Spring. I just watched SCV's "Force of Nature". I could not help but get a bit teared up.
  4. Honestly, I know I cannot get too far ahead of myself. but I am just hoping that DCI is not cancelled for the summer. It is really a bright time of the year for me, By far and away, it is probably where I spend a good amount of time and money (if I have it). I know I am in good company posting this here. I know its best to deal with the here and now, and hope for the best.
  5. Well, to beat a dead horse: Wash your hands, Wash your hands. It will mitigate, but not completely keep you healthy. You can use an N95 mask, but you truly need a fit test for it to work the best. Although the virulence of this is not such that it is killing healthy people; the likelihood is that we are really doing what we are doing moreso to primarily protect the vulnerable and not overburden the healthcare system with those who wont die (leaving a severe shortage in available hospital beds), but may need hospitalization as well. As a nurse who now works in a 1700 employee building ( I work in the employee health clinic), I was far more concerned about Ebola, as it could make the healthy extremely sick, and had the potential; to be more fatal I do think there is some overreaction with regards to the necessity to hoard. I do think it is good practice to social distance, have contingency plans because I do believe with climate change we are going to see far deadlier pathogens in the future.
  6. My other half has gone to enough shows now that at finals last year he said, " I liked the Bluecoats a lot and I love the Beatles, but I bet the Blue Devils will win because they seemed more together when they moved and marched."
  7. I’m excited to hear their music this year. I like Will Pitts but never thought his arrangements were right for Phantom.
  8. Yes, too bad about colorguard and BOA. Avon's guard was a visual effect in and of itself. Of course, they have the same team leading them up as BAC.
  9. And why not ? Its also not about "creating a problem where one does not exist". Every person has their own unique experience, its just another perspective. I agree that being gay and in drum corps is nonissue, but as my dad always told me, "Not everyone thinks like you do, nor do they see the world the same way you do, Not everyone fits nicely into the same square box like you think they should sometimes."
  10. I feel a surprise again indeed. I was surprised when I went to Spring Training and heard the Beatles !!!!!
  11. I don’t necessarily associate cheese = bad. At the same time I love to witness the creativity of one’s mind or even collaboration. The beauty in art is how it makes you think and feel as an individual. Sometimes one creation resonates with a lot of us, sometimes only a few. We will always have critics in the arts, but no one can take away your experience. I think we all can be guilty of trying that( to be critical of an opinion or taste) and not leaving it alone as someone’s opiinion.
  12. I know it is not about the fans, but if we did not show up there would be a lot less $$$$. What I would think would be cool one year would be for fans to come up with themes, take a poll - cull that number, and then the top 25 (or the number of WC corps) would pick a theme drawn out of hat. Corps gets to pick the music to represent said theme.
  13. Avon HS did one several years ago that was quite good
  14. Not sure what music you would pair with it, but a show at least with a visual concept based on the art and life of Yayoi Kusama. With her fascination with polka dots and her infinity mirrored rooms...….I could see a few corps doing this.....BK comes to mind
  15. 9th place is still finals. I am sure a few corps who have never been there would be happy.
