Happy Shakespeare's Birthday, which National Day Calendar lists as National Talk Like Shakespeare Day. For this year's celebration, I am following through with my first idea for last year's 'Westworld' characters quoting Shakespeare for National Talk Like Shakespeare Day: "I was originally going to celebrate it as 'Blue Stars 'Starcrossed' for a drum corps Shakespeare's birthday'...Next year." Well, it's next year, so I'm going ahead with it.
"Star Crossed" is a retelling of the tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet" on a football field. One can see and hear that in with the official video teaser from Drum Corps International.

Of course, I'm conserving my resources. Next year, I plan on featuring two corps that played Radiohead's "Exit Music (for a Film)," which debuted in the 1996 "Romeo + Juliet" (even though it was not listed in the soundtrack) and was re-used in "Westworld." I like closing circles.
