Every accusation is a confession
Just channeling my own inner deliciousness.
These solicitors are getting bolder every day.
- I don’t know where they get all of this energy, but I’m here for it.
- I didn’t realize I knew this song until halfway through the chorus.
Personally, I think the ensemble PMJ songs are the best.
Also for the teachers who are back in the classroom during an airborne virus pandemic.
The 2010 Drum Corps International World Championship audio recordings came up in my playlist this morning. This was the season where the Blue Devils won playing what may be the Stan Kenton Orchestra’s most polarizing music, City of Glass, as part of their championship show, Through A Glass Darkly.
Admittedly, I wasn’t a fan of BD at the time. I was on the bandwagon of hating the corps because they were pretty much the New York Yankees of drum corps. The 2010 Blue Devils changed my perspective and my opinion, however, and compelled me to write about it on my old website. Here is what I wrote a decade ago for your enjoyment.
Now that we’ve resolved our tie for second, let’s take a look at what came in the other 2nd place bundle from Drum Corps International. This is the third of four mystery bundles I’ve purchased. You can check out the first two I’ve opened here (Boston Crusaders) and here (Phantom Regiment).
It’s a pretty standard bundle, similar to Boston’s and Blue Stars, which will be my final bundle. Inside, we find…
MY VERY OWN DCI ORANGE CONE!!!
I have to resist the urge to throw it out of the way…
This ensemble arrived just in time for me to mow the lawn this weekend in full DCI mode.
And, if it gets cold, I have this long sleeve hooded shirt as an option. They thought of everything!
Well, this may not be part of the lawn care regalia…
Still, I can now add DCI to my “business casual” wardrobe.
If you’re smart, never EVER let me hit this. Golf club, baseball bat, or even a tree branch. Nothing good will come of it. I promise you.
And that’s the DCI bundle. A pretty quick reveal and, so far, the only one which did not contain any media. Not that I expected any, but a replacement DVD from 1981 would have been awesome.
One more to go! Watch for my Blue Stars mystery bundle reveal soon!
I didn’t get a Kick The Cheat when it was available and now I’m sad (but not Strong Sad).
I expect all orchestras to wear dino onesies from now on when performing Jurassic Park.
