Drum Corps at the Movies: 2011 DCI Tour Premiere Next Week

For me, baseball is my second favorite summer sport. My favorite is drum and bugle corps, as those of you who read my blog probably can tell. The 2011 North American drum corps season is about to start this weekend with shows across the country in both the junior and all-age drum corps divisions. Unfortunately […]

2011 Drum Corps Preview: Phantom Regiment

In recent years, storytelling has become as synonymous with Phantom Regiment as white uniforms and classical music. Since 2006, Phantom has given us the stories of Faust, Spartacus, and the Red Violin, with most of the musical selections coming from sources outside of the theme. This year’s edition of the corps brings us another story-based […]

Bye Bye, MySpace

I just pulled the plug on my MySpace account. Yes, MySpace is still around. The final straw came when I received a friend request from somebody who I had never heard of before. That somebody looked like a comedian, a “pop” star, or just somebody who wanted to get noticed so they could jump start […]

Yes, Akron, Ohio, Has A Zoo

Memorial Day weekend. You know that the beaches and amusement parks like Cedar Point are going to be PACKED with people, something you definitely don’t want to deal with on your holiday weekend. You want to do something outdoors, though, and gets you moving around. Sure, mowing the lawn fits that bill, but it’s hard […]

2010 DCI Championships FREE Rebroadcast

I had the pleasure of watching last year’s DCI World Championships from the press box of Lucas Oil Stadium last year, reporting as part of the Drum Corps Planet Live From the Stands series. I also have the Blu-Ray discs, thanks to my lovely wife who gave them to me for Christmas. I tell you […]
