i've never done anything like this, but my old marching band routines took about a month to memorize and required significantly less dexterity... well done!

and if you needed further proof that dave was a complete asshole... :lol:

Woodruff wrote:Alright, so I had to come back and make one bragging post. I've been hoping to get a chance to brag to you guys for quite some time about my Color Guard and Drill Teams, so here it is.

As part of our school's Distinguished Alumni ceremony, a few of my AFJROTC cadets performed a Color Guard and a Drill Performance. This is part of what we do in competitions against other schools, so it's not really what we teach in class itself. But it shows you some of the fun things we do outside of class. We've been doing Color Guards all year, so that team is good at what they do. But I'm particularly proud of the two young men in the Drill Performance (both are sophomores), as they had really only been practicing this routine for about two weeks at that point (as you can see right at the beginning when one of them turns the wrong way). This was also the first time any of our drill team members had performed in front of the school's student body (and they got a standing ovation, which was nice):

Congratulations!

LIke several above, while I have never been on this kind of team, I have done other types of marching drills, so I have an idea of the difficulty.

Brilliant! You're such a pathetic f*ck that you've got to rag on high school students that you don't even know.

This isn't my classroom, and my students are far more intelligent, resourceful and well-grounded than you are. They'd call you a fucking idiot too.

Have I missed something? I've never really liked Woodruff personally because of the nah-nee-nah-nee-boo-boo reading comprehension comments, but when was he ever a tattle tale? I'm guessing this would be in another forum. Link?


Oh, there's no link. You would expect proof? He can't even provide links that have anything to do with his claims in other threads. This is simply pimpdave at his most pathetic.

pimpdave wrote:Woodruff is constantly trying to get people banned.


This isn't true, with one significant exception. I have worked to try to get YOU back on a six-month ban...that much is true.

pimpdave wrote:Often, he'll send people angry PMs, telling them about how they're worthless human beings, etc. If you reply telling him to shut up and go to hell, he'll take you to court. Seriously! He'll threaten real legal action against you just for telling him to leave you alone!


None of this is in any way true. I don't know why your self-respect is so low that you believe you have to stoop to this level, but it really is pathetic. But since you're best friends with the moderators, you can get away with saying anything you want to...you clearly recognize that you'll never be banned for it, because of your friendship.

pimpdave wrote:Maybe if he takes some time off he'll stop working so hard to get people banned, but in the meantime, he deserves just as much derision as he dishes out.


Frankly, you deserve to be banned. You're a pathetic individual who contributes absolutely nothing to this site. In fact, you are successfully driving people away from the fora. Hail to the moderator friendships, and the power that gives you! I won't at all be surprised when I am sanctioned for this post and you remain untouched, as has happened previously with your trolling.

No chance of you getting on topic in this thread now, I suppose?

I have no friendship with the mods. Ever since I accidentally hit thegreekdog while demonstrating karate chopping techniques, forcing him to vomit all over MeDeFe and clapper011, they've told me to go to hell every time I invite them over for a crochet and appletini party. Oh, and since I won't report you, you probably won't have any problems. I'm sure you've reported me though.

Woodruff, please stop sending me so many hateful PMs. While I do enjoy reading them before deleting them from my inbox (need to save room for the newsletter), I don't think it's helping you.



Anyway old buddy, I don't see why you're so upset. If you count up all the times you've called me an idiot all over the forum (tons) versus the number of times I've called you out on why you should take it if you dish it out (twice now I think), I'm pretty sure you're winning the war. I understand that you want to keep your abusive personality hidden from everyone else. The best way to not get called out on being so abusive and hurtful all the time is to just stop abusing people. I know there's good in you, I can feel it. Maybe someday you can learn to ignore the things you don't like instead of being a huge tattle-tale who demands everyone live up to a standard of elegance that you define but never live up to yourself.

I'll just go back to ignoring you now.

Please stop lying about this. You know as well as I do that I'm doing no such thing. Stop being such a cowardly pussy.

Trust me, it's deserved.

I originally tried defending that cock sucking Woodruff when people were ganging up on him in some unpopularity poll - my mistake. I think it was bradley that started that one. Wasn't more than 2 pages later I could see why people got annoyed by Woody.

Excellent work, Woodruff. They appear not only well disciplined and drilled but also seem to enjoy what they are doing, that intangible esprit de corps. I'm not generally impressed by D&C that doesn't incorporate Exerzierschritt style marching but this was very snappy so count me doubly impressed. What is the significance of the maroon beret? Is that standard cover for JROTC?

I say, though, do they perform ever to traditional marching music or only popular songs? I liked these videos very much, however, so many really strong, rousing marches the U.S. has in repertoire I'd be curious to see them execute to one of those as well. Nobles of the Mystic Shrine is one of ol' Saxi's personal favourites (http://youtu.be/sTG0yxYMhR8). If they are insisting on performing to popular music I say give them something with a strong, martial beat - an example would be Ersatzteil by Feindflug but probably anything off the Fight Club soundtrack (incidental music only, not the songs) would be grand if you wanted an American composer.
