Hey Scramble Bands!

In my self-appointed role as CUMB's ambassador to the net, I want
to hear from you all.

No, this is not a scam. SEND NO MONEY! Good fame and
foreski^H^Hfortune will befall all of you is you post (or mail to me, for
those shy individuals)

Who you are (duh! it'll say it in the hedder) and your affiliation

What instrument (including miscies) you play

What was the coolest thing your band did this year

Legends, i.e. what was the coolest (or worst, or most vile) thing your


band did in all it's history

Why you joined band

Does your band discrimante on the basis of having to have at least one set
of genetals per person?

And any thoughts you can think of...

My answers to the above:

Constantino Tobio, Jr., a.k.a. Trashcan Man, Columbia University Marching Band

The Rural Mailbox, complete with little folding flag.

At Princeton, forming the Magic Bullet Theory, complete with exploding JFK
skull (I got to be a flying skull fragment!)

At Yale, 1992. Consummating a same sex marriage on the field on Youth Day.
See one of our band managers being taken from behind by another man on their
marriage bed, while the band plays Hava Nagila and dances the Hora!

From the recruitment flyer: The Columbia University Marching band requires
at least one funtioning set of genetalia. Strap-ons permitted.

Who owns New York? Why we own New York, C-O-L-U-M-B-I-A!


I'm sick and tired of big marching bands starting threads on whether
they're allowed to use flip charts on their trumpets. Show me that there's
cool people on this newsgroup!

A long, throbbing purple one. This very question (minus parantheses) was
on a Raunch Bus application from two or three years ago; garnered far

Played for Bill Clinton at the Kennedy Library. Drowned out reporters'

temperature -30F. So cold, all instruments froze. We _sang_ the halftime
show. Announcer: "Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time ever, the
Harvard Band will sing the halftime show. The yale Band, copycats that

Minor factual error (before in-house people flame me): on "Why you joined

read "as told by a former manager to the current trumpet section leader".

No. In accordance with federal and state Equal Opportunity laws,
the YPMB does not discriminate on the basis of gender, or lack
thereof. We do, however, discriminate against the metabollically
challenged since we require all members to have a pulse.

Here are some of our best jokes from Virginny this
year...

With the Michael Jordan's early retirement from
professional basketball, the Chicago Bulls have been forced to
recruit the one man capable of replacing him... Jesus
Christ Himself!
And Jesus is taking the ball up the court and
oh no -the ball has slipped through His hands again. But now
He's recovered it and oh no! Jesus is pinned at the board, but
wait it's a turn around jump shot and Jesus scores for two!
The crowd goes wild!
Jesus is shooting 100% this season, and it looks
like this carpenters son from Nazareth is going places! He's on
the football squad, and He always throws a perfect Hail Mary.
In the boxing ring, He may turn the other cheek, but that
hasn't kept Him from winning the heavyweight crown of thorns!
Jesus Christ, He rose for you, He rose for me, He rows for the
crew team. Well, actually He doesn't row, He gets out back and
pushes. In fact there's only one sport Jesus doesn't play...
Lacrosse!

Last Saturday's autoposy on the late actor and
vegetarian River Phoenix
swept Hollywood in a wave of denial. Drs. found lethal levels
of heroin, cocaine, valium, ephidrine and marijuana coursing
through his meat free veins. Actually, they weren't exactly
coursing, they were just kind of sitting there.
In his defense, friends say River never tried acid, however,
since it was tested on animals.

Six Oregon cheerleaders were hospitalized this week
with third degree burns after sitting on blocks of dry ice in a
pep rally stunt. Apparantly the cheerleaders did not realize
that dry ice can reach temperatures of 144 degrees below zero.
We'd like to thank the Oregon cheerleaders for giving new
meaning to the term, "I froze my ass off."


President Clinton today criticized NAFTA opponents,
including the one he refered to as "that guy witht the giant
sucking sound." Senator Bob Packwood refused comment.

"Back when I was in the Band, we used to use champagne for valve oil!"
I've heard it said, but I don't know the game...probably a yale game --
there would have been lots of champagne on hand for the staff changeover
ceremony.

Excuse me, but is it me, or was the reason the Yale Band was not in
attendance at the last Columbia-Yale Football game because YOU GUYS

Well, there was OUR show at West Point, where the Band was Banned (get the
pun) from ever showing their faces their again.

It was during the 70's, if I'm not mistaken. CUMB formed, on the field, a
B-52 bomber napalming a Cambodian village COMPLETE WITH BURNING
VILLAGERS!!! Army wasn't too pleased with that, I guess...

Most Ivy Bands have been banned from West Point for similar incidents.
Harvard's story (all hearsay, mind you): Our happened in 1983 or '84,
shortly after the incident in Beirut. One of the formations involved the
number of servicemen killed in that incident, along with the song "Only
the Good Die Young" mentioned in another thread.

Some Holy Cross guy thought he heard the word "abortion" in the joke we

We haven't been allowed to play a half-time show at West Point for
quite some time (and now they're off our schedule, so we probably
won't be starting again any time soon).

Among other things we did to annoy them, we started to play the
Star Spangled Banner (for which all of the cadets were required to
stand) and then stopped. Over and over again. Finally, they stopped
standing up, whereupon we played the entire thing through.

Rather tasteless- somehow, I don't imagine Ken "Death Before

If we ever have a joke about abortion, I want us to form a coathanger on
the field. Ona vaguely related note, last year, when George Bush was
campaigning and said that he "Held a Crack Baby in his arms," We wanted to
form a Crack Baby. Dean Lehecka wouldn't let us, despite him being a total
cultural retard. Somehow, whenever I hear crack Baby, I think of one of
Roy Radow's many fantasies.

Thoroughly evil. I like it.

ObTastelessBand: Yale-Columbia, 1974, at Yale. This os when we started
having our scripts censored. It all started when we did on the field at
Yale during Youth Day (We love Youth Day at Yale, I guess) an ode to birth
control. Now, this was 1974, with plenty of kiddies watching us form
diaphragms, I.U.D.'s, condoms, and reenacted the Rythim Method by forming
a calendar and play "I've Got Rythim." Not particularly tasteless, but
let's see one of those lamer midwestern bands have the creativity to form
something more complex than a triangle.

Actually, when we did "I've Got Rhythm" back in 1992, we formed a

not as simplistic as a triangle, and quite a bit more tasteful than birth

Yes. But you neglect something. The Columbia Band is *the* most tasteless
band in the Ivy League. Taste is only used in our vocablary when it comes
to the bile that we hork up on the bus while drinking heavily.

ObBand. My goal is to, one day before I graduate, vomit during the playing
of the Alma Mater and run off the field.

ObTasteless. Form on the field a squicking session, complete with drill,
skull, and engorged penis.

True. Depending on how "tasteless" is defined, probably the most tasteless

Well, at least Handsome Dan can hunker down and lick his balls in front
of 5,000 people as a good mascot should. When Harvard's--what is it, a

Not even the illustious LSJUMB or MOB could ever bave the tastelessness
within them to have the scriptreader utter the words "final solution"
when referring to the homeless. No band in America would form a burning
American flag, while playing "Light My Fire" by the Doors. (we got a bomb
threat for that one)

Well, you only need three persons to form a triangle... We proved that one
at the Cornell show.

Actually, Harvard doesn't have a bestial mascot. They're the Crimson,
whatever tha means. When I think of Crimson, I do think of tampons. So,
they can be the Harvard Twatrags. Hey, I like that! Or the Harvard
Sootikins. How about the Harvard Clots?

With the irony being that the original post came from someone whose new

battle to see who has the best bloody secretions. I'd vote Crimson, as it
is more colorful and more painful.

Someone needs to come up with an appropriate mascot for this
university-in-the-middle-of-fucking-nowhere. My vote would be for rabid
raccoon or gut-shot deer.

Ironically, Speculum is the name of the prestigious journal of the
Medieval Academy of America, a scholarly organization made up of
constipated old white guys too sheltered to realize what the word means
to the rest of the population. I have several issues of this dry
publication on my shelf, and people who visit my house definitely do NOT
think, "Ah, Speculum. That is Latin for 'mirror.' This must be a
medieval history journal." No, they pull down a copy and start looking
for pictures of cranked-open vaginas (er, vaginae).

Just thinking of the dreaded salad tongs makes me shudder...

We did this once. Only three of us MOBsters (trumpet, tenor sax, snare
drum) showed up for the spring training football game, but we put on a show
anyway. Just stood out there and yelled "This is a triangle!" and played
the fight song. Didn't really move and yelled "This is a circle!" and
played, hmmm, something else. The crowd didn't look any more or less
confused than usual. (

I always thought that the Cornell mascot was a weasel. At least
that's the general impression of what the ugly
animal-type-things-wearing-Cornell-shirts look like.

Of course, most of the time our mascot is a dork...

Try preceding it with "cold" next time. Works wonders.

In reference to grungy's post: At our home games, the home stands
remain fairly full...there were certainly a hell of a lot of boos for
the Brown, Princeton and Cornell bands when they took the field at the
half. Turned to cheers when we take the field, of course.

Two things strike me here:
1. Were you that afraid of the shock the Baker Field fans would have at
seeing a band that looked exactly like theirs, yet so much the inferior?
2. This "more important things to do" philosophy regarding sports
intrigues me. I can see not going to Central Florida, but Columbia's,

Granted memories get hazy, but I don't remember any boos at Penn Stadium
("Quaker Field"?) when we came last year. Maybe just because it was
parents weekend and the gray-hairs were too polite, who knows? In any
case, the only boos I remember last year or this year were from the yale
stands and the Cornell band, both road games this year.

The only shock the Columbia crowd would have experienced would be
that of seeing a band that does formations more complex than a staple.

We both know there's only one reason Columbia's in the Ivy
League: so that every other team is guaranteed an easy win. Why
spend two hours on a bus and end up in Harlem if the outcome is
certain?

As for the hockey team, it's now safe to reveal that they
participated in a secret NASA experiment and became the first
hockey team to go to Jupiter which explains why they weren't at
Ingalls Rink on Saturday.

When I was up, I went up to the Cornell Bear(?) and said to him, "Hi
Mouse!" He was not amused- he hit me.

Yeah! I noticed. At the game, I was openly fantasizing about taking the
Quaker to the Boathouse behind the stadium and fitting him with cement
boots. Whata more fitting way to meet one's demise in NYC.

No one at Baker field ever boos the opposition's bands, but then again,
columbia students are pretty apathetic. Our best showing was definetely
Employee Appreciation Day (free food for all Columbia staff- since I'm
both staff and student, I got the best of both worlds 8) ) and then
followed by Homecoming. Believe it or not, there were quite a few at the
Fordham game.

But seriously, you guys just weren't very funny. Oh, and we know who sent
the fake letter to the Columbia Spectator from the Aryan Nation. It did,
after all, have a Philadelphia postmark...

Columbia is a Mere 1.5 hour ride. But we're digressing from the original
point. They call themselves a Band, yet they only go to hom games. Which
leads me to believe that they're an emasculated version of a band. Gawd,
couldn't some alum give you the 500 bucks it costs to rent a bus both ways?

Ahh, but it's not in the complexity of the formations, but in the humor of
the scripts. I guarantee that you will yet to find a funnier, more ballsy
script than the ones we turn out. Who but us at the Penn game would make
references to "water buffaloes"? Who but us would dare sieg heil and goose
step at a school that's about 40% Jewish? Who but us would announce *at
Princeton* that Keith Elias was injured during our halftime show, and
would be out for the season (we made the NY times, NY Post, the Curtis &
Lisa Sliwa Show on radio, and have appeared on The Howard Stern Show. Top
that, Yale)

Brown, possibly Harvard. Even Cornell mentioned it. "Water buffalo"
was never ballsy. Ballsy is forming "10-0" on the field when you're
down 14-0 to Cornell at the half.

Just our luck we'd be at home vs. Penn the year this happened. Plus it's

his last home game, so a little reverence was in order...)
