sorry peter. but mosull should've gotten drum major. her marching people off the stage was brilliant.

9:57 pm - Drum Major!

so, the result of drum major try-outs is.......*drum roll*.....................

Peter Hynes! i know, quite a shock. the competition was tough, the others trying out did pretty kick-ass jobs too. our feet were almost marched off because of someone's tempo, and another tried marching us off the stage. but peter still got it.

Flag Day parade coming up kinda soon. graduation this week. 

.....and i think that's it.

9:53 pm - lalalalalaaaa


so, i thought i would update, seeing as how band things are happening and stuff.

1. the new show is AWESOME. it rocks my socks. yes its cirque again, but we are putting a completely different spin on it - no more circus. AND the music is freakin amazing!! see brogan if you dont already have cd. quidam = <3333333333333333!

2. parade today was dumb, this one always sucks. 

3. Thursday we get out of periods 2 & 1. wearing our parade uniforms - white socks, the polo shirts, and white/light-colored shorts (yes you have to wear shorts, suck it up). i dont know about dinkles...i will ask. 

we should be getting the new music in about 2 weeks. 

....did i miss anything?

hey everyone - the scores from yesterday have been posted. we came in 2nd (out of  2) with an 88.5. new bedford got an 89.9. we were incredibly close in ensemble music (judge paul alberta, who will be at finals) - 18.0 us, 18.1 them. unfortunately, we did not recieve any high caption awards.

the rest of the scores are here:


if brogan is happy, we're happy.

Band geek love is:

Being in your room, and hearing a car drive by honking "Mars", and you think, "YES!"

Listen up party people, two pieces:

Did you like the Carmen DVD? Would you like a copy? $3 will get you one, if you comment and let me know how I can get it to you. If you're in contact with Lauren (starfishblonde) fairly regularly, all the easier.

Did you like the Carmen DVD? How about something more special? Right now, I'm currently looking at options for creating a documentary on the DHS band. Yes, folks, this is the big one. We're talking feature-length, as-seen-on-PBS style documentary, in high def, with a crew, not just by myself. I'm putting together a rough overview of the finished product, estimated budgets and shooting dates, crew calls, and desperate pleas for funding from organizations like WGBH and DVAC.

I'll most likely be collecting ideas for coverage as well as shooting the senior interviews this season, with the actual primary filming to be done during next year (2006-2007), with coverage of this year's Winter Guard and Percussion. (This means, seniors, that you have to come back to Thanksgiving Day game to do followups!). Tell those you know, and those you don't!

we totally have seven members (even though two of 'em are me...shhhhhh), hooray!

the show is gonna rock this year, no doubt about it, the pain we put ourselves through watching raging river, especially when we got the scores, that is NEVER going to happen again, NEVER!

so yeah, practice before thursday! don't forget all you learned in band camp, that'd be muy triste.

now i'm going to eat some sushi, yummmm, bye y'all.

6:02 pm - another band camp over, another season started.....


hi guys!!!!! long time no update.

Band Camp went pretty well - the music is coming along, as is the guard work, and the show is about half done. percussion....well, Annie can speak for them. Brogan seems happy, and thats all we need to know.

currently, there are 37 people in the band (including guard), so we are still in division 2. barely, though - the cutoff for div 1 is 35.

Riandra and I are planning to, at some pint, hold a meeting and have everyone watch the awesome Carmen dvd, so the underclassmen what winning looks like.

next practice will be on thursday, sept. 8th, the second day of school, after school at the parking lot.

the first competition is in everett (hehehehe.......;) at 1.  

let's see, anything else?........comment if i missed anything;)

current mood: sore
