So I'm totally new to not only this community, but to this livejournal thing.

I wanted to get away from the myspaces and facebooks of the internet and come to something a little more simple [hopefully] where I could just put up blogs.  

As I said, pretty new to all this.
Cant wait for the finals to be aired. My drill writer was out in CA for the show then came home and wrote drill for us all night. =]

great guy.

I love the bluecoats, bluedevils, and carolina crowns.
I'm trying out for the crowns next summer.
I'm a guardie and I love their guard.

I guess.
I dunno.
I need to stop procrastinating.

Hey My name is Paula, I'm new to this community. I just joined today and this is my first post! I don't know how often people write in here or read this, but I was looking for a place to discuss DCI and meet cool people. So I guess I'll strike up a topic and see if anyone bites...did anyone catch the quarter-finals last night and if so, what was your thoughts on the whole George Hopkins calling the Cadets off the field thing?

Not asking for a free download or anything, but does anyone know where I could find a recording of a corps (any corps) playing Tennessee Waltz, either in a show or just a piece? This place is dead lately, so how 'bout them cavies?
