That's right. Consider me deleted. I'm unbookmarking this site. Why? I'm bored with it. Nothing ever happens here that interests me. Sorry.
I have given up on making this a personal account. I'll do what I can to upload music, but for now, I'm deleting everything I have.
Rosemount High School Marching Band (semi-official records-2004+):
Results from the 2004 marching band season
Champlin Park: First place, grand champion, outstanding percussion, colorguard, and drum majors. They didn't give an outstanding soloist. Marshall got crowd pleaser. Irondale got outstanding hornline.
Eastview: SUCKED! It was probably our worst public performance ever. But we still got first place, outstanding soloist, oustanding hornline, outstanding percussion, and outstanding colorguard.
Irondale: Same day as Eastview. Great performance. We got outstanding soloist and colorguard. We also got first place. There's really tough competitiion there, and a lot of it.
Eden Prairie: 1st place. Out of two whole bands... Our only competition was Champlin Park... So, we made a clean sweep of all the awards.
Mid-Iowa Band Championships (Ankeny, Iowa): We got second place to Blue Springs! Eastview got third and Marshall got 4th. Go Eastview. I don't know how they turned that around and beat Marshall. That's amazing, really... But second place!! it was amazing... Did anyone see the show?

A few songs for your entertainment:
During practice a while ago, we (the frontline) joined up with the rest of the band. Mr. Olsen, the hornline instructor, said "Okay. Now, we'll have to slow down for the drumline." Drumline=Pit and battery.
So, I'm thinking 'He's trying to get them to think they're superior.' And I mention that to my hornline friends afterwards. Well, they play along, saying how they ARE superior, even though they're not. Yes, the can play their music faster, but they've had it for over a month, only play one note at a time, and don't have to switch between instruments constantly. Well, in AIM, aftrer the practice, I was talking to one of these friends, and we made up some songs, showing how superior our section is... Here ya go:
The first: Pro-hornline.
Oh you can search far and wide
You can search the whole town dry
But you'll never find a horn so great
As the ones we play in our home... state!
You can keep your fancy drums
You can play them by the mallet
But the only sound for the bold and loud
Comes from the Horn Line!
That goes to the tune of the Green Dragon song that Merry and Pippin sing in LOTR: ROTK.
Second, mine: pro-frontline
Hey ho to xylo I go.
To heal my wounds and drown my woe.
The trumpets sound, the flutes, they blow
But in the end the horns must go!
That goes to the tune of the drinking song in the extended edition of LOTR: FOTR
Finally, the third song, also mine, to the tune of Into The West:Pro-frontline
What can you hear? From the marching band. Why do the horns still play?
Across the field, the pit kicks butt.
The front line's come to blow them away.
And all will turn to the mallet kat
electronic music but horns blast, killing your ears.
What do you think? Who's superior? Whose songs are superior?
