So fun story about the phantomettes,

bottomoftheline:

I forget which show we were at but they were warming up right by our food truck and this one member of the guard was just really gorgeous and extremely talented so she caught my eye. I watched her perform with my jaw on the floor, she was just like amazing. Pretty sure we made eye contact between reps and I’m 95% sure that we’re soul mates.

No idea why I just posted this.

Me.

Remember when my band director thought this was so hilarious that he made us re-create it? I was in band and on pomline and my boyfriend was in band and on the football team and the drum major was my super morman friend. yeah. good times. lol

Your director is my hero.

I don’t know if anyone noticed this (because it gave me a little chuckle when I first saw it in Walnut, CA at Corps at the Crest) but in SCV12 (Music of the Starry Night), there’s a set with a giant zigzag across the field that forms just before the corps begins Mars. 

OKAY so Mars (the actual planet) does this thing called retrograde motion every two years or so where it appears to move across the sky, reverse in direction, and then continue back in its original direction (forming a zigzag shape if tracked). I mean, obviously http://mars.nasa.gov/allaboutmars/nightsky/retrograde/ is better at explaining it than I am.

So moral of the story, I don’t know if Pete Weber was being tricky or clever or just coincidentally wrote the drill to look like Mars, but I thought it was cool little gem and thought most people wouldn’t have noticed it. The more you know.

This is really freaking awesome!

This is one of my favorite corps and here’s yet another reason why

Pete Weber is known for doing sly little things like this all the time. It’s his way of seeing if the audience is paying attention/if they’re intelligent. See also: SCV 2013 and our sideways France drill set.
