Welcome to my madness. I'm a lover. I'm a fighter. Color guard. Drum corps. Boyfriend. Writing. Singing. **Trigger warning. (Suicidal ideations and self harm)** Being me. Don't like it? Feel free to leave. Need someone to talk to? The ask box is always open.
lmfao, color guard is timing and thats literally it. The amount of talent it takes to be a color guard person is like 0. anyone can do it, tht’s the whole fucking point of color guard.
I’ve taken shits with more complexity than color guard.
you are going to get a huge shit storm and its all gonna come from me.
start with a dance feature that requires sliding to the ground, perfectly pointed feet, beautiful leaps, and amazing posture
then pick up a sabre. start with a wrist roll while jazz running to the middle of the floor to toss a six with one hand, and catch tape. then run to the other side of the floor while doing very complicated work that is very handsy and difficult. then jump on a stage, toss a quad, and catch on one knee.
then run to a flag, start the flag feature and sprint across the floor. again. continue the flag feature and toss a single and a half at the end, catch with one hand, and strip the silk down so it is exposed, all while standing on top of a bench.
and thats only the first song.
don’t you fucking dare say that it does not take talent to be in color guard. not every one can do it, in fact, i highly doubt you can do it. hell, i doubt you can even do peggy spins right now.
color guard takes practice, effort, and a hell of a lot of blood all over the floor. you will sweat, you will cry, and you will hurt.
id like to see you try it.
This is considered a shit storm? And laughing, because yes anything done WELL takes a lot of effort and there are some colorguard teams out there that go the extra mile, but the point is that it’s still a talentless, wow can’t even call it a sport, activity that simply involves routine and timing. ANYONE CAN DO IT, it takes some practice, but the point of color guard has always been all inclusive.
Now are there some teams out there that are worth noting? Yes, and you can youtube some really fantastic routine, and you can argue that what they’ve done is one hell of a trip to accomplish. But that can be said of anything, just as there are some cheer squads out there that do the same. Hell, you can even find a really superb mime, that doesn’t mean most mimes suck shit and are also talentless forms of performing.
My original point that inspired this ask still stands. No one gives 2 fucks about color guard except people in color guard and some overly enthusiastic band geeks. And that’s just fact bro.
I’m just going to reblog this so my followers can see it.
Someone please educate this 26 yr old child.
I made a hella long text post in response to this because it wouldn’t let me say it all here, so I’ll just leave that right here
When you can toss a 16 on saber, chrck your phone under it, and catch it as majestically as me, then you can call it eady. Till then shut the fuck up bitch.
Somebody please put this asshat in check.
