Drum corps people can often be classified as some of the biggest fanatics on the face of the Earth, living and breathing anything related to the marching music experience in their everyday lives. Here's just a small sample of recent drum corps topics compiled from fans' Facebook status messages.

Zack W. woo. talking about drum corps pit stuff with Maria Brandone is pretty awesome and you really see how different it really all is.

Derek M. Just passed a convoy of 4 tour busses and wondered what corps it was. My life is drum corps.

Jeremy G. Is flying out to Denver in 4 hours, I guess I should start packing. If theres one thing drum corps taught me it's how to pack quick and efficient at the last minute possible.

Nicola W. DRUM CORPS PEOPLE: I need advice on the best kind of air mattress, shoes, socks, shorts, sports bras, etc are best for tour. I'm doing that kind of shopping tomorrow and could use some help! Thanks babes <3

Robert F. hair just doesn't look good long. Time to go drum corps on it.

Lisa J. had a great weekend with the Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps !

Michael W. Time to start getting in shape for Drum Corps :)

Michael B. Here's the full tour for DCI corps this summer. www.dci.org/schedule/

Laura C. Thrilled, honored, amazed, excited to see the USMC "Commandant's Own" Band make an historic appearance at Carlsbad High School's Lancer Field today. Included USMC Drum and Bugle Corps, Silent Drill Team and Battle Color guard. They pick one high school in one state per month to perform for free. THANK YOU! Truly inspirational. Semper Fi!!!!

Marcus S. So I spent most of my day watching Drum Corps videos. Productive day!

Donnell F. Had a great time at Drum Corps this weekend! Now for a great Spring Break... Oh and... Go Dawgs!!!

Chere B. i was volunteering yesterday morning at the Desert Museum, and a guy comes through the line wearing a Madison Scouts t-shirt!! I said - 'hey! i used to march in a drum corps!' - Unfortunately he didn't seem overly friendly, but managed to mutter that he marched when he was younger - oh well, i'd have thought he'd be chattier meeting someone with a similar past......that's what I get for thinking, huh?

Christine S. Just 2 more days of work and off to Boston with the Ventures Winter guard. So looking forward to it since the last time I was there was back when I marched with the Ventures Drum & Bugle corps back in 1982. Funny how life repeats itself.

Michael K. back to the future and drum corps... yup good day
