read between the lines.

this was the new YEA! newsletter i got:

Look for the unveiling of the "NEW" 2004 Crossmen in Orlando After a slow start the corps is moving ahead with refining and perfecting their 2004 production "UNITY" As of this past weekend Eric Kitchenman has taken a larger role by doing all the visual rewrites and adjustments for the remainder of the season. At his side is Bret Mascaro carefully helping plot the dots and proofreading Erics work as we move at a feverish pace to make our show even more appealing to the judging community.

We already unveiled our NEW BALLAD on July 8th, with a complete rewrite of Both Sides Now. The work now stands on its own as a production with some beautiful choreography and a couples dance as we explore the idea of UNITY in a relational way as we draw the audience in to the passion and sensitivity of our middle production.

no offense to all you bones that marched during the YEA years, but... *shakes head and sighs*

i have a vague hope that my darkwing account will completely deactivate soon so that i won't get anymore updates. well. there are some updates i'd like to see, but those kinds of updates would never appear in a YEA newsletter.

yeeeep. still bitter after eight years.

no offense taken...
it's a little disheartening to see this stuff...and I was always more annoyed by the YEA administration when I was there than helped to be honest.

Re: no offense taken...
YEA drove and continues to drive the crossmen into the ground.

Anything non-Cadets, really. Look back at the Boston Crusaders. For a while, they were caught by the YEA net, and they suffered because of it. As soon as they were able to escape, boom! fourth place.

Not that the Crossmen before YEA was perfect or anything. but i'm just waiting for the day that i see a newsletter that says, "the Cadets had to rewrite their ballad and rewrite all of the drill towards the end of the season because the light was *finally* shed that their idealistic show design and membership hopes wouldn't happen."

the thing that irks me more than anything else is that I think that the Crossmen either a) don't realize or b) don't care that they'll always be behind the Cadet's shadow as long as they're a part of the Evil Empire. They've been a part of it for so long now. Eric might even be the last person left who was a part of the crossmen before they "converted". And he's a little insane, so he might not have perspective on it anymore.

iiii dunno. whatever.

Hey hey hey...In 98 you said to me "At the Drums in the Slums show, near a soccer goal, if I reacll correctly, "I really like your show, it feels like the old crossmen." So maybe they just need me there to be cool :)

*laughs* i do admit that i liked the 1998 show a great deal.

still doesn't change the way that i feel about the YEA admininstration, even back then.
