Big difference: Star won.

1991: Blue Devils' "Bird and Bela in B Flat" is the centerpiece of an unusual but, some would argue, highly enjoyable show.

2012: Blue Devils' "Bird and Bela in B Flat" is the centerpiece of an unusual but, some would argue, highly enjoyable show.

Big difference: I could hear more than 10 seconds of that piece in 1991.

1991: Performing one of the most musically popular shows of the summer, Vanguard finishes 4th after finishing 6th the year before.

2012: Performing one of the most musically popular shows of the summer, Vanguard (could maybe possibly finish) 4th after finishing 6th the year before.

Big difference: SCV will not place 4th.

If any 2 of the 3 change above tonight, I can give you a thumbs up on this. :)

1865: Abraham Lincoln, whose secretary was named Kennedy, advised him NOT to go to the theater.

1962: John F. Kennedy, whose secretary was named Lincoln, advised him NOT to go to Dallas. :shutup:

2012: Recent DCI ageouts asked "who were Kennedy and Lincoln, and who did they march for? :doh:

I don't see a lot of complexity in Crown's show, just chaos. There's just too much body movement and standing still. Cool, your marching is hard, but you only march about 3/5 of the show. That leads to a lot of don't move...don't move....RUN BUT DON'T PLAY!...don't move...sit down....roll around...get up...RUN!

Except the sit down part. Sounds like :bluedevil: :bluedevil: with their chairs
