It bothers me that in this society, it’s okay seeing a guy blow another’s head off, but a child seeing Janet Jackson’s boob at the Super Bowl is the worst thing that could happen. It’s not the end of the world! It’s just a breast!

Shipwrecked Comedy is proud to present “A Change of Scene” from The Case of the Gilded Lily written by Dylan Glatthorn and performed by Mary Kate Wiles.

We are so excited to share this little bit of our new project, The Case of the Gilded Lily, with you. The full short premieres at Buffer Festival in less than two weeks, and we can’t wait! We’re also thrilled to announce that we’ve added some Gilded Lily merch to our store, in case you want to show up to the premiere in style. And you can buy “A Change of Scene” on iTunes and Bandcamp! Turn your very own living room into Bixby’s Lounge.

The Case of the Gilded Lily coming soon to Shipwrecked Comedy!

Singing something by someone as brilliant as Dylan is a huge honor. Hope you enjoy just a piece of the Gilded Lily goodness to come! (Go buy the song too if you like it! Helps us make more stuff.)

That camera push in on Chris had everyone watching at monitor gasping with how beautiful it was. And then Mary Kate stepped on stage and stole the show.

I can’t begin to tell you all how excited I am for you guys to get to see even this little sneak peek of The Case of the Gilded Lily. You are going to love it.

I know I posted this already, but I just have to say now that I have more time how much I loved this. It’s so cool. Can. Not. Wait. 😍👍

“My partner likes to quote a line of Michel Foucault: “People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; but what they don’t know is what what they do does.” You do what you can. What you’ve done may do more than you can imagine for generations to come. You plant a seed and a tree grows from it; will there be fruit, shade, habitat for birds, more seeds, a forest, wood to build a cradle or a house? You don’t know. A tree can live much longer than you. So will an idea, and sometimes the changes that result from accepting that new idea about what is true, right, just remake the world. You do what you can do; you do your best; what what you do does is not up to you.”

“As Senate Republicans scramble to gather 50 votes on a bill that would repeal key pieces of the Affordable Care Act and convert Medicaid into a shrinking block grant controlled by the states, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office announced Monday that it will not be able to fully evaluate the bill’s impact on premiums, the uninsured or the federal budget in the next two weeks. While promising a “preliminary assessment” of the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson legislation by early next week, the CBO noted that it does not have time to study how many people could lose their health insurance if the plan became law. “CBO will provide as much qualitative information as possible about the effects of the legislation, however CBO will not be able to provide point estimates of the effects on the deficit, health insurance coverage, or premiums for at least several weeks,” according to the CBO statement. Republicans do not have several weeks. Their ability to pass the repeal bill with only 50 votes—thus avoiding a Democratic filibuster—expires at the end of September.”

Posted by jbc on September 18th, 2017 at 10:09 am

I’m on the record as being a non-fan of the “2-minute music video” approach to Volvo Ocean Race media. But this is an exception. I really like this one.

It turns out what I dislike is bad 2-minute music videos. (Okay and also, not being able to figure out what’s going on because the action has been cut up too much to watch what is, you know, an actual sport.) But this one isn’t like that.

The race village in Alicante, Spain opens on October 11. The first in-port race will be on October 14. And the first ocean leg (a relatively quick dash out the Mediterranean to Lisbon, Portugal) starts on October 22.

Closer…

Everything you need to know about the Assembly Period

Posted by jbc on September 17th, 2017 at 10:19 am

Everything you need to know about the Assembly Period:

a-solitary-sea-rover:

You might have noticed that the Volvo Ocean Race teams have been chalking up plenty of miles recently. Well, with the Assembly Period starting on Monday 18 September, it’s their last chance to get to grips with the boat for a couple of weeks.

So what is an Assembly Period, and why do we need it? It’s a mandatory part of the pre-race preparation, when all teams must report to the Boatyard facility in Lisbon, Portugal, so their boats can be lifted out of the water and given a final once over before the start of another ocean marathon.

[Blatant but amusing product placement that you can see for yourself at the link]

With nearly 9,000 nautical miles until the next big service in Cape Town, the Boatyard will do a lot more than just kick the tyres. The masts will all come out to be scanned by non-destructive testing specialists to confirm that the challenging Leg Zero racing didn’t leave any lasting effects.

To guarantee the best level of service the Boatyard uses the original manufacturers to maintain the equipment on the Volvo Ocean 65s. 

In short, the Boatyard becomes a dusty, oily version of the United Nations and the core staff jumps from 20 to 55 during the intensive maintenance periods.
