no one has posted in here in awhile so I will.

I have a question since I haven't been to practice this week (today I couldn't find anyone) so... have we changed anything in the field show?

AMAZING JOB, BAND! I still think our marching could've been a lot better, but still, we have definitely improved a lot since last year.

Wow, I'm really excited about tomorrow. The practice today went great! The one thing I'm mainly worried about in all the woodwind sections, as far as marching goes, is in "Home" on the straight diagonals up that nobody hardly ever guides (but the last time we practiced that IT WAS PERFECT!!), and then guiding near the very end.. and mainly just guiding up the wazoo. Guide, guide, guide people! And also, saxes and the low brass in the circle are going way too over to the left, and it's throwing the spacing between the upper clarinets and flutes OUT OF WACK. Me and a few others have tried talking to them, but they still didn't fix it today. I'm guessing we won't be able to fix it by tomorrow, but hopefully we'll fix it for our other festivals.


I'd like to recognize a few people in the band:
(I'm not very good at words, but here it goes lol..)

Christine: Thank you for keeping me guided with you, Amanda, and the others on that part I always mess up on! It won't happen tomorrow I promise lol

Morgan: You've really came along way starting clarinet only this year as a senior. I'd like to thank you for taking charge at times when desperately needed. I feel like sometimes you're my co-section leader, and you do a really good job keeping everyone in line with me =) SUCK A WOODY!

Meghan: Thank you for simply being who you are. What I mean by this.. You're an amazing marcher, and I know you always put forth your 100% effort in everything, playing, marching, posture etc. You set a WONDERFUL example for everyone in the band to follow.

Carl: The switch to tuba was definitely a major plus. You have contributed so much to the low brass (at least it sounds that way from a clarinet player lol), and it's just incredible. You are an amazing low brass member, and I really don't see how you and Travis manage to march and play the right notes and rhythms with that huge tuba on your back. I'd also like to thank you for taking so much care of it. It's really noticeable how much you care for your instrument, and I wish others would be the same way about theirs.

Tierra/Nichole/Vicki: I must thank the pit members, personally, for turning the once butchered train-wrecked mallet part of the feature into the correct rhythms and notes, in practically that one day you guys set out to fix it. And the 'Good Luck Duck', you know good and well that it's really you =) Great job guys for fixing the feature!

Drumline: YOU GUYS DON'T SUCK, STOP SAYING THAT! I know Curtis is gone from the band now, and I think it's somewhat honorable when Chiles asked to put your hearts in it, and you replied "our hearts left when Curtis left," but really, c'mon you can pull through with it. The basses sounded great today, even without Curtis. This isn't impossible to pull off, really.

Ed: I don't know if you read in this community or not, even though you're a member, but you are an amazing field commander. You deserved better than what the judges scored you at the Cabell Midland, in my opinion. I'm hoping the Majorette Festival will be a better representation of your true talent...

Mandy W: Simply amazing. We're all rooting for you.


If you have any other comments you want to make about other band memebers (positive or negative), or the flag core, field commander, band director, or to add on some comments for some people listed above, PLEASE, BY ALL MEANS, DO SO!

Good Job! [26 Sep 2004|02:25pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Hey Guys I think we did a GREAT JOB yesterday at the festival. If all of us can pull together like Tom said, I think we can get some first place awards this year...i mean afterall there were some good bands there in our class and the numbers were real close.

Get on step!

Practice today.. [24 Sep 2004|07:15pm]

Am I the only person that noticed that the very first time Meghan showed us the ending move, that when Ed called everyone to watch him do it, his foot came in on the first beat then did the horns "and down" ?

Just for clarification's dear sake...

DO WE DO WHAT ED DID: "1,2,3,4, 1(foot hits on on this one), then "and down" for the instrument..


DO WE DO WHAT MEGHAN (the person that came up with this whole thing)DID: "1,2,3,4,1 - and (foot hits on and) then horn down.

What is the difference between a bull and a band director ?

The bull has its horns in the front and the ass hole in the back...

Revenge on Chilles.........

agimatated... [21 Sep 2004|10:12pm]

band practice blowed...plain and simple. we'd set the forms, fix them once, and then run the sets about eight times...getting worse each time. oh, and did i mention that we haven't practiced this song since band camp?? A FREGGIN MONTH AGO!!?!?! why in the HELL are we just now setting this?? less than four days from our first festival? if i ever had any faith in chiles...it's gone now. how does he expect us to set home/over the rainbow at this rate...before saturday? and then ed..."it's not my problem if your forms look bad, he's the one that's supposed to fix all this."

see why i wanted so badly to be field commander? the band doesn't care, the director is incompetent, and the field commander says, "as long as i look good." what a great family we've created...we may win only trophies for showing up this year in the direction we're heading...
