Re: Scores Finals

Congrats, BD. You were without a doubt the best corps on the field all season long. A well deserved victory, and one of my favorite shows of the year.

Re: Synths...Really??

I liked most of the uses I've heard so far. So there you go. I'm far more upset at seeing some drills written with horrible transitions than any electronic sound coming from the pit! :D

Re: Phantom Regiment opinion

I wouldn't be upset at all if BD won this year (and I haven't really been able to say that for many years). I like the show, chairs and all, I like the music and yeah, I like the drill too. For me, everything that show needs, it has. And the performance quality is some of the best I've ever seen. Th...

Re: What's going on with the judges?

This is hilarious. Over on drum corps planet, there's a huge thread entitled, "THE COLTS ARE GETTING THE SHAFT."

Don't take these numbers so seriously. Different judges see different things on different nights in different performance settings against different corps performing at different times.

No, you're allowed to have a valid opinion. That doesn't mean that it must remain unchallenged.

Re: SCV/Crown opinion Poll

Sorry Lucas but I think you got your corps reversed with who will or will not pass who soon. Tuesday night in Van Buren SCV closed the gap to 0.1 but hasn't passed Crown yet. They may or may not depending on who cleans better and the judging panels on any given night. As for shows, I like them both...

Re: SCV/Crown opinion Poll

Aside from the ballad, Crown does nothing for me. And while I respect and acknowledge the quality of design and performance, to me much of that show is a lotta who cares. I like SCV this year. I don't have any great expectations for them to be legit competition for a title with what they're doing, a...

Re: PLEASE UPHOLD THE SPIRIT OF DRUM CORPS

DCP, in my opinion, gets a bit of a bad rap here. Considering there are so many more active users, of course there is bound to be more nonsense, but even then I find it's very easy to disregard it. It should be noted, however, that their large user base also leads to what I consider some of the best...

Re: PLEASE UPHOLD THE SPIRIT OF DRUM CORPS

Well, in my experience just living my life (having nothing to do with drum corps), even if I offer my opinions to someone, I'd prefer it if they didn't speak on my behalf. Opinions can change. There can be variances in thought and perception. There can be degrees of how one feels about something. An...

Re: PLEASE UPHOLD THE SPIRIT OF DRUM CORPS

Nobody's out to get you. Just be aware of the words you use. Having an opinion, even a strong and possibly controversial one, is fine. But when you contradict yourself or post inaccurate information, people are most likely going to nail you on it. That's just part of how it works in these message bo...

Re: Drum Corps Politics

Okay well we could just go on and on. I agree to disagree. One final word though. The music you just mentioned was at least recognizable. In my opinion the average fan wants either recognizable music or a story line or both. Not none of the above. 10 and 20 years later, story lines are what average...

Re: Drum Corps Politics

Thanks for the info. That makes sense on Holy Name. I know whenever subjective scoring is present, people complain, but what is it that BD and Cavies do to never drop down in the standings even though they are seldom fan favorites? First off, it's always dangerous to try and think you know what the...

Re: Drum Corps Politics

They changed their name back to Holy Name for this season only, as it represents their 75th Anniversary. There haven't been any announcements about keeping the name after this season, but I wouldn't be shocked if they did. My gut tells me they will just go back to being the Cadets, but I think they'...
