      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

James on Colbert Show

Recommended Posts

Not sure why he went on Colbert,

Ummm...seriously?

 

NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 - For the first time, "The Colbert Report" has overtaken "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" among Adults 18-49 for a full quarter to give COMEDY CENTRAL the #1 and #2 late night talk shows in the key advertiser demographic, joining "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" at the top of the ratings charts. The multiple Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series also continued their long-standing dominance among younger viewers finishing the quarter as the most-watched late night talks shows in all of television, both broadcast and cable, among Adults 18-34, Adults 18-24, Adults 25-34, Men 18-49, Men 18-34 and Men 18-24. TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com maintained their industry-leading positions as the top late night talk shows in digital during 1Q 2013 leading the field among Total Visits, Unique Visitors, Total Minutes/Time Spent and Videos Streamed.

Colbert and Stewart are, after the Fox News shows, the biggest news or 'news' programs on cable.

 

He is also a sailor which makes it easier, you hardly recognise him in this video after the Bermuda race:

Not sure why he went on Colbert, but no harm done, and if it helps promote sailing - it's all good.

Colbert is actually a bit of a sailor so I'm sure he jumped at the idea of getting Jimmy.

Colbert made only a quick, passing reference to his own sailing experience. One of the best parts about that pretty cool interview is how the script writers kept attention where it was best due.

 

JS looked pretty lit up, absolutely nailed that it was about fun. His enthusiasm was infectious.

 

Am trying to imagine that guy's schedule since waking up early in the morning to maybe the biggest race of his life, Race 19.. Was on a flight to NY very late that night, did several apperances, was aimed at Hawaii for some brutally physical slog after, then back to the US east coast after.. Amazing how he keeps the pace, and the great attitude. The guy is on top of the sailing world like few if any have ever experienced, he just grabs it by the horns and revels in it. IMO, DC and RC have got nothing over JS on the biggest counts - attitude most especially.

 

No way that BA could have pleased like JS did on the Colbert Report.

They should have gotten Colbert out on a AC72 while the AC was running, late August say. Great to see a public figure who gets it, even though in the interview he is playing dumb and mugging for the camera a bit.

 

Instead, they gave that fruit-loop Tom Cruise a ride. FFS!

They gave Clean a ride. Doesn't that count?

Oh yeah there is an interesting piece on BA here

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-2448272/Sir-Ben-Ainslie-dating-presenter-Georgie-Thompson.html

 

I think is represents some kind of progress when the media covers the dating lives of sailors like they do rock stars or football players. ;)

 

Sounds like a party girl...

 

"In September 2011, Thompson was banned from driving for 19 months, fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £100 in costs after being caught more than twice the legal limit for drunk driving."

For Comedy, watch Fox News.

 

For News, watch Stewart and Colbert on Comedy Central

 

 

Colbert did a race from Charleston to Bermuda a year or two ago, IIRC; but don't know what boat he has, or if it was a charter. He did a funny (sorta) skit upon his return about the trials and deprivation of an ocean race...

 

EDIT.. I thought JS was going to be on 60 mintues Sunday, but wasn't there???

We had Colbert's video piece on the front page, it was pretty funny - search colbert and sailing anarchy and you'll find it. He was invited to charter one of the OnDeck 40 footers before they went tits up - Mer and I were actually brought in to help out but saw the OnDeck program and hightailed it out of there.

 

Colbert ended up on some shitbox with a couple of his friends and didn't even make the awards ceremony, It was the C2B race, which is dead but doesn't seem to want to stop breathing.

 

And he reads SA.

In the land of completely useless hypothetical media competitions, Stingray holds all the keys.

 

Jimmy is off to Maui for some boarding after our interview tomorrow, and he told me he would take me up on my invitation to come Moth Worlds watching from a media boat. Maybe our interview will have a part 2.

It would have been much more fun around here if you would have taken this sort of interest during the Cup.

 

Better late than never.

Cool - looking forward to tomorrow's, and the next if it happens.

 

Be sure to press hard for the technical details underpinning the Herbie device, he may laugh even bigger than Dirk K did :D

No need to talk much about herbie, i think we have the info we need.

 

But I'll open up a thread in a minute with questions for Jimmy and you can stick them in there yourself ;)

I really want to thank all the AC anarchy community for the outstanding coverage and insights. This was the best place (apart from SF) from where to watch the Cup! I very much enjoyed being part of it. :-)

 

Cheers to all

A number of years ago he was looking at chartering my boat for Annapolis/Bermuda. I didn't really know who he was at the time but my college kids did and were very excited to meet him. He backed out because of a movie schedule or something.

Another derisive trashing of the AC on the front page again today; WTF? Scot and/or Clean really need to get off the negativity train. Yes, the AC was too expensive, didn't have enough teams, and other obvious flaws, but what a spectacle! I wasn't at the local pub watching the races but my mates that were said that all the Nascar, golf and tennis fans watching were totally gobsmacked!!

No, actually that was a carefully thought out piece from Pierre at Vsail. Hey Billy - why not dispute the specific points in the article rather than giving us useless anecdotes about how much you and your pals liked it?

For starters, I think it highly unlikely that Oronato expected Ellison to pay the freight for his campaign. Pierre is great, and I loved his coverage of AC 33, but like any other journalist, he needs be able to back up statements like that.

Anyone got a link to the Colbert Show JS interview that works in AUS?

 

 

Hola Bee your friend to see the link posted (Well Worth any hoops to jump)

 

the YouTube-AC was such a Fack-Up

 

most everyone needed to use something to make them appear someplace else

 

Thus the US Ratings showed 325 people watched the 34th AC, while the Un-Blocked Countries Rocked It !!!

Anyone have audio from the Stern Show? Much more interested in hearing that. I know JS has been a hardcore fan for a while and has done occasional interviews.

Here is a link to the SI interview - http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/sinow/#2013-10-03-full

 

Skip to around 25:30

 

I loved the polarizing personalities of Dean and Jimmy during the Cup and watching Jimmy make his rounds on the media circuit post winning is something else. He is entertaining, engaging and minus the accent and references to sailing you would think he was a typical american athlete. Here's hoping they can capitalize on this for the next cycle.

 

I do have to say that I was dissapiointed in Colbert with his interview. There were so many angles for him to play with the name of the race, won by one of the richest American's with a team of hired guns from other countries, many from the country they beat. He had some fun but not nearly as much as I would have come to expect form him. Truthfully I think he was a little bit in awe and excited to do the interview and fell out of character.

I think you are right in that assumption. I was at a taping of his show in New York a couple of years ago, and when he gets into character it is truly amazing. He must be totally exhausted, physically and mentally at the end of the show. I think he cracked himself up and had to start over at least a half dozen times throughout the taping.

He wasn't actually on the Stern show, he hung out with the producers one day. He addresses Howard in our interview. "I really screwed up - I was going to do a Bababooey on the microphone when we won but I forgot!"

A bit after noon, he was at the wine shop (Mills?) just outside the show autographing bottles of Aussie vino.
