My wife is watching from home and it’s bad on Flo, even on the Roku app.

I was getting occasional freezes watching high cam on my desktop during Phantom, so I switched to my laptop, and had no problems for Crossmen.

It is kind of weird. It's happened a few times before. Maybe they both got the idea from the same place?

A lot of groups have jumped aboard the "Hurt" train back when Johnny Cash recorded a cover of it in the 2000s.  It seems like a lot of hidden gem songs have gained popularity from cover albums. I can think of Peter Gabriel as another example.  There was a two part compilation titled "Scratch My Back" and "And I'll Scratch Yours." One was an album of him doing covers of other artists, and the other was an album of other artists doing covers of his music.  Some music from these albums have also been used in the marching arts.

First two shows shoe why 2019 is going to go down as one of the best DCI seasons ever!

Yes... top to bottom is fantastic. And by bottom I mean down to 20+

Really great season.

Mandarins did march a full line last year, but I think they find they’re not as useful in a full brass line like drum corps than when they’re featured. I find I can’t hear them when the full corps is playing and, to me, you might as well just use baritones at that point.

Also, visual designers don't like them because they limit vertical space due to the pokey slides. This is probably why there are also some BOA powerhouses that don't march trombones at all except for features.

This section after the tribal chant is the most Andrew Markworth sounding section to my ears. That’s not a bad thing. I love his writing.

I thought his enigma show for Crossmen was really nice.
