DCI World Championship Semis - Friday, August 9, 2019

Recommended Posts

I think there is something wrong with me. I have tried and tried to like BK’s show, but it just is too esoteric. The kids are playing and marching well, but the music does nothing for me.

Am I the only one who noticed a trumpet player sticking out on the ending, VERY out of tune and VERY loud?

I think somebody was expressing his frustration and displeasure with that show.  It was pretty bad and not an accident, IMO.

yep - we noticed that too -- hopefully it was just unfortunate proximity to mic? but yeah - not exactly trying to blend there buddy.. 😉

A number of corps sound better on Flo today than they did last night in the movie theater.

At the top of Blue Knights' show last night, those spinning crescendo-decrescendo battery parts were largely drowned out by the synths.

Does anyone from DCI ever actually go to the cinemas to hear how their broadcasts sound there?

Ironically, I never can remember what BK's show is about.

It helps knowing the source of the monologue throughout the show. Robert DeNiro did a short film called “Ellis” in 2015, about the first immigrants visiting Ellis Island. It’s just him remembering with shots of an Ellis Island hospital, deserted in the modern day.

I don't mind Dan Potter, but asking Spartans drum major after their last competitive performance in front of the semis audience if their championship deserves and asterisk by it since BDB and SCVC didn't attend was not the question to ask. Of all the things you coulda asked, that's what you go with?

Perhaps the DM should have replied:   "Does your career deserve an asterisk because Brandt Crocker is getting too old?"

Is BK voiceover one of the Bridges brothers?

Jeff Bridges?

really want to see Blue Stars pass BK tonight - how they didn't top them in GE last night is a mystery....

The original movie was DeNiro, but I don’t think this is anybody but a really good pro voice actor.
