  1. Who are you talking to? Nothing I wrote has the slightest relationship to my happiness or the lack thereof.
  2. The people who care are the several thousand people around the world whose livelihoods depend on how or why event media is funded, and those who have been working on growth and sustainability issues for decades. I don’t know anyone who has a a problem with Ellison spending the money, so I’m not sure which straw man you are arguing against.
  3. Lightning kills two golfers in Lakeland By GUY McCARTHY Published Sep. 13, 2005 Two golfers died Monday on a North Lakeland golf course when lightning struck a tree they were standing under during an afternoon thunderstorm, Polk County sheriff's officials said. Steve Kester, 43, of Lakeland and Doug Staley, 37, of Dallas apparently died from the lightning strike about 3 p.m. at Huntington Hills Golf & Country Club, said sheriff's Lt. Paul Baggett. A third golfer in the same party, identified by detectives as Scott Miller, 33, of Garland, Texas, was sitting in a golf cart and w
  4. Worse than fragile. Because of the vast disparity between revenue and expense of live coverage, such coverage is, outside that handful of exceptions, a vanity project with a patina of speculation on it, occasionally characterized by fanboys as charity done for the betterment of the sport. I worked with almost every media person in the sport at one time or another. The main reason I finally left was entirely due to the issue we are now discussing. I finally accepted that the only way forward, at least in the US, was to continue to rely on gratuitous actions by high net worth individ
  5. Tv coverage of sailing has never followed “the stars”, because it has never ever been driven by actual viewership, because there simply isn’t any. This is true across 99% of the world, the only exceptions being a tiny blip around Alex T and Ben A in the UK, France during the vendee, and the AC for a few weeks a year in NZ and italy. Those four items are literally the only meaningful sailing audience that ever exists for the sport. all of the above is why, as potter explained, coverage is driven by other needs than audience numbers. The exss coverage was driven by series sponsor perce
  6. Wasn’t about the fame, just a rich cokehead douchebro who doesn’t like cops. Unless Australia imposes a duty to rescue on random civilians? He would not have gotten a sentence here for the “outrage” part though they would have found a way to lock him up for leaving the scene or some such. He would likely be on the hook for civil liability for emotional distress torts.
  7. Retired age Baja expats tend to fall in three categories. 1) can’t go home but definitely can’t afford tahiti or speak French; 2) can go home but have no family left who likes to see them more than once a year (if that)or 3) can go home but don’t like their family back there or just don’t have any left. Expat men tend to have much younger wives, often part of the reason for 1 or 2 above. Every single expat retiree in Mexico has one thing in common though: they are cheap as Scots.
  8. That’s sweet of you. We had a window where we could have really set the standards for the sport’s media footprint. Unfortunately there was a large object that decided to place itself over that aperture and suck all the oxygen out of the company at the crucial moment. Pretty amazing you kept it alive all this time through all the chaos.
  9. Meanwhile my Thai/us dual citizen chef over there just told me that “incubator” is some millennial bullshit term. Apparently it is a collab or confab or spark center or some such shit these days. HEY! I only turned 49 yesterday! I told him to call it whatever the fuck he wants as long as it makes money and helps save Burmese people!
  10. Her dad manufactured slingshots. They are in hiding now. Silver lining is that we will have a Bangkok office and incubator up and running by june
  11. 2 years says the podcast guru but I agree the subject matter has limited appeal. PTSD seeing the name
  12. There’s only one way to grow this kind of thing, and that’s to do it reliably for a long long time. always longer than you think necessary. quality, character, all that kind of thing is barely a consideration unless you have durability and reliability. The SA podcast for instance: when we got to six months, the numbers started doubling. A year, tripling, even the older episodes. Then those chicks with the pit bulls broke my brain.
  13. We all know you can hold your booze like one
  14. Nope. We have clients. They bring other clients. Maybe if your service was better you wouldn’t have to make resumes.
  15. That’s not what Siri said. Scots + moors = ires. Explains the full lips and occasional dark hair, and the average cock size of 4” compared to the scots 3.5”
  16. What’s a resumé? I have a vague recollection...is that some ritual for the non self-employed?
  17. No edits here, Mickey. Siri just told me Irish race comes from Scotland. Cool!
  18. We got our staffer out in the nick of time. 50 hours of drafting and filing documents later. Her neighbors house was knocked down the morning she flew out. Scary. She will hang out in Bangkok until we can sort out a us visa for her.
  19. Drinking problems similar to native Americans, some with red hair and fair skin like Vikings but others with moorish features. Prone to tribal warfare. What race are the Irish anyway?
  20. Tactical nukes over west Texas would be kinda enjoyable to watch
  21. Rick you gotta stop pulling numbers from the comments section of foxnews bro. You’re not usually so obviously a mark. Suicides down >5% from 2019 to 2020 despite pre-2020 year-on-year increases for a decade. Suicides among 8-14, 15-24 flat or down slightly from 2019 despite a decade+ of increases until 2020. report is up at NIMH if you’d prefer facts and not repeating what some asstard spread to people he thinks are too gullible to realize he’s all fraud.
