sorry too busy eating away my feelings
life is too short to not sing both parts of a duet
It’s just ridiculous how fast everyone blows up about shit in this community. We’re all so backed into our corners with our aggressive opinions that we’ve forgotten that we ARE all different and have different opinions. Just because we’re a drum corps community doesn’t mean we all have to agree on everything. For fuck’s sake, that’s what makes it so cool - that people with completely different backgrounds can come together and make music in 110 degree Texas in July. But so many of us have taken this stance that ANYTHING negative about drum corps is an attack to the organization. Just because somebody says something negative about an organization doesn’t mean that they hate it. Critique does not equal attack. Like come on, drum corps aren’t perfect - sorry to burst your bubble, but drum corps aren’t perfect organizations. It doesn’t negate your memories of your corps, but EVERYONE in drum corps has SOME type of critique on their own corps (if you say you don’t, you’re a liar). Phantom & SUTA mean a lot to me, but I would be a liar if I said I didn’t have even one critique about the organization over my 2 years there. People should be able to say “oh, I don’t like SCV’s show themes” without being bombarded by people saying “how dare you disrespect Vanguard you ignorant piece of shit!”. Like, god damn, when did it become a crime to have an opinion in this community? As long as you have solid reasoning and you aren’t trying to be an asshole, there is absolutely NO excuse for that kind behavior between corps members. It’s amazing how immature people can be about band sometimes.
Except a guy in a drum corps uniform
I’m like 19% they march in corps
