I thought about posting this in percussion, but I thought it would be novel for there to be something here besides an announcement.

Top Secret is always awesome. One of the few things I miss from "old school" DCI: the world needs more 12-man snare lines!

I can just imagine my school district's overzealous health and safety guy (aka "Captain Safety") having a heart attack if I tried something like that.

...might be worth trying. :twisted:

Yeah, you'd probably only get away with it if your health and safety guy was this man...

I remember when he first got his start on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Before he became "Super Dave", Bob Einstein (his real name) was a writer on the original Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, occasionally playing the role of "Officer Judy".

For something so steeped in tradition, I am a bit surprised to see that thype of Tatoo performance. Perhaps I just haven’t watched enough of the more modern Tatoo competitions.

However, that show was very cool...errrr...other than the fire. I guess that was hot.
