Colbert Report Taping in Vancouver: Day 2
I don't watch broadcast TV a lot except news... but Colbert Report is one of the ones I'd gladly watch. His on-screen attitude are always on and it's very right wing, supporting very conservative views such as not supporting health care and liking George W. Bush and Republicans and their views. It's all an act... At least I think it is... His acting is so over the top that you can't help but laugh so hard at it. It's worrisome that some people actually take him seriously though ^^;
I had slept early, which was very uncommon for me, but my plan was to wake up at 5:30 AM and leave by 6. I was a bit late, but I arrived at the useless lineup at 6:30 AM. I'll explain later why it was a useless line. I've overheard that someone was already waiting since 1 AM!
Before most of the fun started Stephen mentioned that there will be an aerial camera from Goodyear that will be taking pictures of the crowd from the air (duh). The sun was bright and all we saw was a single one-engine plane. The crowd unsure of the plane asked real loud, "where is it?" Stephen tells us, "It's in the sky, you idiots!"
One thing I that I didn't get a picture of was Stephen Colbert with Ujjal Dossanjh, the member of parliament for the Vancouver South riding. He did a special interview with Ujjal that we got to see in full (though I only heard since the TV was a plasma and was reflecting the sunlight, lol, see my problems with plasma). After the clip, Ujjal shows up on stage very, very briefly and people's arms were up in the air that I couldn't see at all...
Downtown is also a place where I do a lot of shopping and where I can do a lot of shopping fast because I can go through crowds quickly. There were TONS of people there and I was already sore and tired, so I couldn't maneuver properly. However, I did get some loot...
Turns out the contents inside were...
Anyway that's my long, and exhausting day. I'm still sore and I could barely walk properly. And looks like the lack of sleep's really catching up to me... Yet, I may continue going through the Olympic events and venues on Friday... But this time I'm gonna go try out the zip line! Gonna be so fun! I hope the rope doesn't snap from my weight XD
I'm not quite sure when this segment of the Colbert Report will be showing on Comedy Central or CTV/Comedy Network in Canada, but if it's on, you may be able to see the SOS Brigade cap on TV! If I found out when it's on then I'll post it here or on Twitter. I hear it may be the week of February 22-25.
