It it the Halloween season, and one of the first ways to kick it off is through the MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplayer Game), World of Warcraft ("WoW"). The most recent expansion pack of WoW is called "Battle of Azeroth" (BfA), dealing with the re-ignited global war between the Alliance and the Horde, as well … Continue reading Spooky Time: “Abbey Lewis”
45 rehearsals, give or take a couple. A guesstimate of 9,000 miles traveled on Greyhound, between Louisville and Cincinnati. Rolls of athletic tape and Kinetic tape. It all came down to a road trip to Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Thursday/Friday Morning Thursday was a logistics morning and afternoon for me: making sure that I had medicine packed, … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #27: The Final Post: DCA World Championships

Saturday was Show Day #3: DCA Columbus! More on that in a moment. The 4 weeks between DCI Hamilton and DCA Columbus were spent hammering Movements 3 ("Sanctuary", the Ballad) and Movements 4 ("Wind River", the Closer), musically and physically (going set-to-set). For me, this helped with some troublesome set changes that I could not … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #24: “What a Day-Weekend!
Show #2 for Cincinnati Tradition was our "Home Show": the evening of 6/25, in Hamilton, Ohio. Our report time at the stadium was 4:30 PM but I had to leave Louisville at 9:50 AM, due to Greyhound's schedule.
