the James Madison University Marching Royal Dukes (aka, Virginia’s Finest) at the 2008 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

London better watch out; we’re taking over their New Year’s Day Parade this winter!

AAAAUUUUUUGGGGH! This band is like ours, but the uniform is better, the arrangement is better, *head explodes* EPIC

I saw a facebook page that said: “Gwen Stefani taught me how to spell Bananas”. I learned how to spell bananas from the marching band my sister was in during her high school years, they would do the “Go Bananas!” chant as a stand tune kinda thing. I honestly think being taught how to spell by the Marching Blue Streaks is a LOT better than by some random pop singer.

My favorite corps would be Phantom Regiment. I’m relatively new to DCI, this is the first season I followed, I discovered corps during the fall of 2009. I gotta say I love the opener of their 1996 show “Defiant Heart”

This one is kinda hard. I liked both freshman and sophomore year pregame, freshman show 2 had great drill, and 2 of 3 songs I liked. Sophomore  show 1 has excellent song choice, but the drill is fail, and the band isn’t that strong this year. So I’ll say Sophomore year show 2 is my least favorite. I hope whichever assistant director who writes show 2 makes it great, and that we’ll learn it amazingly fast and stand a chance in competition.

Karma Eats Hope: How To Know You're In The Marching Band

You tend to march. OUTSIDE Marching Band.

You try to recruit your non-band friends into Marching Band.

You argue which section is better.

You Can and have slept near the Drumline when they’re warming up.

When the season is over you have withdrawal syndromes.

You hate to explain what an…

It is 9:15 pm, on a Tuesday night.

And I just finished highlighting the shinny new copy of the charts I got for practice tomorrow. I had these charts since last week. You might say I procrastinated, but tomorrow on the field practice lot, who’ll notice?

This one is hard because of the technicalities of the criteria. (Thats enough big words for the day.) I’m guessing I’m suppose to write about my favorite show I’ve seen live. That would be when I saw OSU and the OSU alumni bands do 4 SCRIPT OHIOs at once. I dont remember it too clearly, I was in the 5th grade, just starting trumpet. But who knew how dedicated I would be to band (and my love, the baritone) 5 long years later. My favorite show I’ve seen on video would be Bluecoats 2010, I loved the baritone features there. Plus the Coats are from Ohio, if I ever march corps I’m going to them, right down the road.

My favorite memory.. It was the last game of freshman year. for about a month we were working on show 2, but we never learned the dancebreak. One of the guys that made it up, my extremely close friend (I consider him an older brother now) decided to teach the dance to whoever would listen. So it was 3rd quarter break, I got my food and a coke, and proceeded to hide them in my hat (people still asked for skittles).

Part of the dance was a backwards kick. As my friend described it, you were to kick as if you were attempting to hurt anyone behind you. When he demonstrated, he yelled “BITCH!” semi- loud. We followed suit. For the next 5 or 10 minutes, those band members who chose to learn the dance were a chorus saying “Bitch!” at a double forte, while kicking imaginary innocent bystanders. When the director finally heard us, she wasn’t too thrilled. Finally, when it was the middle of 4th quarter, on my first last game, we performed “Zoot Suite Riot” with the dance included. Can you say “epic”?

My least favorite memory.. It was the Monday after what was suppose to be our first game (freshman year), the Friday before it rained. And there was a lot of lightning. The game was rescheduled for Saturday on the last minute, and somehow enough of the band assembled so that we could march the show, but the buses never came. We stood in the parking lot in the heat for hours, in wool uniforms, but we had fun. How is this relevant to your least favorite memory? you ask, you’ll find out real soon.

As the things that happened Saturday happened, I remembered thinking “Where is Sam? I don’t think 2 first year baritone marchers can handle doing this without a squad leader.” on Monday, the director addressed the entire band, informing us Sam’s mother had died on Sunday. Sam then moved in with her father in some small town in the middle of nowhere, luckily she could still make it to the games and continue her role as squad leader. She was unable to return to the school until May. Her mother was described as the definition of a band mom, and its unfortunate that we lost her like that.

There was a silver lining on this dark cloud, band members were able to go on a field trip to the funeral, and stop for lunch after. I was the only freshman on the trip, and a certain tuba/sax- playing senior took the opportunity to befriend me.
