Drum corps enthusiasts can 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.

Craig T. A live drum corps show at the movies. . . . hmmmmm. FathomEvents.com

Sean M. It's quite amazing to see how far drum corps has evolved in the last 40 years. I don't think many modern fans- especially of the young fans growing up on the post-2000 shows- really appreciate the history and the roots from which this wonderful musico-athletic form blossomed into.

Eli H. Now this is how you design a drum corps show! I am so stoked!

David G Lesson learned, dont play a concert marimba piece after beating the life out of your hands at a drum corps camp for 3 straight days. It will not go well.

Gabriel E. Any suggestions on how to save money for Drum Corps when all of your job money HAS to go towards school?

Michael V. Watching a bunch of shows on the Drum Corps International Fan Network

Sandy Z. What a great weekend, Derek's 16th Birthday celebration bon fire at Aliso Creek was a great success, over 30 kids!! Conrdad is getting back in the swing and loving his weekend at Pacific Crest Drum and Bugle Corps, and me I volunteered to help with uniforms! Lots more to come.....

Zach D. Drum corps...on ice!

Joe G. Sun burnt feels like I went through a drum corps weekend

Matt W. The new verb of the summer is "DRUM CORPSING". Def: the act of being drum major or member of some drum corps and being awesome!! Used in a sentence: "Jenna Wojdula cannot talk right now, she is Drum Corpsing all week and will call you back when she is dun...which is still uncertain!" :P

Dennis D. Has anybody had a chance to view the New online version of "Drum Corps World"? It is very well done and I enjoyed the part about it being free!

Cory L. Its Monday, done with finals, and officially summer time. But more importantly, Drum Corps International time. Age-out 2k11, its about time.

Brandi F. is the PROUD Assistant Drum Major for Forte Drum & Bugle Corps. I can't wait for a wonderful season with a beautiful group of people!

Evan B. Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps 1979...Let It Be Me...Possibly the best DCI Corps exit endings of all time...

Ej G. Does anybody want to march Mandarins Drum Corps with me? We need Brass and Color Guard people. It'll be fun

Mike S. While we were doing drum corps, someone killed Osama Bin Laden???

Jamie B. How come after a Music City Drum and Bugle Corps weekend, all I want to do is stay on Facebook and watch for posts from those that attended?

Van-Anh T. There's nothing like a pair of Paiste 20 inch 6 1/2 pound ride cymbals to humble me. My entire upper body is hating it. Other than that I had my first taste of Drum Corps and I can't wait for this summer =)

Alex W. Drum Corps is all I really need to survive.
