Jimmy Vivino & the Basic Cable Band

Conan O’Brien will be changing his show’s format from an hour to a half-hour. Sadly, this means that Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band will no longer be opening for him.

That sucks. Conan is clearly unhappy about it, and he isn’t alone.

I got a little choked up when I saw it on television the other day. I hope that Jimmy and the band stick together and go places. They’re awesome – kudos to them.

Last Week Tonight: Brazilian Elections

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the presidential election in Brazil. Looks like that country is ready to have its own version of the Drumpf steering them off of the nearest cliff.

Last Week Tonight: Brett Kavanaugh

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses the shitstorm surrounding Brett Kavanaugh in more detail than Sam Bee did last week. Kavanaugh is clearly unfit to be on the Supreme Court, and his temperament and personality display that quite clearly.

His attitude is identical to the assholes and trolls one encounters in social media, online games, and other internet-based encounters. None of them are fit for employment in any public-service position, either.

Talk Like A Pirate Day

Last Week Tonight: Prosecutors

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about prosecutors and the ways they use or misuse their powers in the criminal justice system.

Last Week Tonight: Gene Editing

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the latest trend in genetic engineering and neo-eugenics which is called CRISPR.

Genetic engineering and designer babies are nothing new. It’s pretty obvious who will be shelling out money for the DIY CRISPR kits.

Like anything else STEM-related, this technology has power for good. Unfortunately, freaks will use it for something sexual because the socially inept have an obsessive need to turn everything into a dating site.

Last Week Tonight: Mexican Elections

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the upcoming elections in Mexico. Santa Claus also makes a special guest appearance.

Last Week Tonight: Xi Jinping

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on China and its now emperor-for-life, Xi Jinping. The social scoring thing reminds me of the episode of “The Orville” titled “Majority Rule.”

Last Week Tonight: Stupid Watergate II

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John revisits the Mueller investigation into the corruption and collusion of the Drumpf and his campaign. Giuliani makes the rounds and screams “witch hunt!” at every possible opportunity, ignoring the facts that the investigation has resulted in arrests and guilty pleas.

Drumpf’s fanatics receive their daily dose of propaganda from FauxNews, yet don’t see the irony of calling every other media outlet “fake news.” That’s cognitive dissonance in action. Comes from residing in an echo chamber which, more often than not lately, appears to be the comfort zone of far too many.

Those damaged people carry their baggage and spew their shit everywhere they can. Even in online games which are supposed to be a fun break from the real-life issues of others.

Last Week Tonight: Venezuela

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on Venezuela. That country is having an election next week and John shows us what the limited option is for the people there.
