Stephen Colbert and the Ukrainian Rebellion

Okay, I'm not sure you can make fun of the Ukrainian people's fight for freedom. They are fighting their government to loosen its ties to big bad brother Russia and become more Western. But Stephen Colbert does have some fun with the Ukrainian rebels who are armed with catapults and kitchen utensils.

Tips for getting the Airborne Platinum Award for Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V online, there's a Platinum Award for jumps of over three hundred feet in a vehicle. Now you have to get twenty five of these. Here's a tip of how to easily get it. Go to the north east part of the state. There's a race called "Jumps, jumps, jumps." Do the race by yourself. Don't worry about times. Now do the car jumps. Repeat them. These jumps count if you go over three hundred feet. And in no time, you'll have the award plus some good RP.

Sarah Silverman gets a visit from Jesus Christ

This Chinese man loves Sarah Silverman. Okay, that's a joke on her "I love chinks" joke from Conan O' Brien's old show. (2001) Anyway, comedian Sarah Silverman made a PSA about how the right-wing injects religion into our government especially the abortion debate. Check out her hilarious video below. And from Black and Right, is the clip of her "chink" remark. I can't agree with the editorial viewpoint of Black and Right but I'll be like Fox News and say you decide. And yes I do get the "chink" joke. Silverman doesn't really mean it, she's playing the ignorant white person routine. But let me clarify. I get Silverman's joke but the word "chink" is just as despicable as the "N" word. I hope she doesn't use it again and I do not believe that Sarah is racist. It's just she should realize the "c" word is the "n" word for the Chinese. It's designed to discriminate.

Katy Perry wants to ask Obama about aliens

Pop music princess Katy Perry wants to ask President Obama about aliens. No, not the ones crossing our borders illegally but the ones from space. She told GQ this,

"I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate yet." Story from Mother Jones.

A couple of things. First, I think Katy you mean astronomy, not what sign you are. Second, I'm not sure why Katy Perry would get to know the biggest secret that the United States government would have. But if she gets the information, I hope she shares it with the world.

Samantha Bee's hilarious take down of Fox News "The Five"

Great stuff from the Daily Show. Here's Samantha Bee's performance art take down of Fox News' "The Five." Hilarious.

Jon Stewart on "Bridgegate"

Here's Jon Stewart on the Republican governor Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" scandal. Funny stuff as he covers the dismissal of the scandal by right-wingers as minor stuff. I'm talking about Fox News' Britt Hume who seems to defend bullies and sexists. He then takes on the hypocrisy of some feminists who are upset with Hilary Clinton being called mean.

Rockstar strikes back at cheaters

If you tried to get online with Grand Theft Auto V last night, you got a message that the Rocstar Administrator was doing some maintenance. Well, this is what they did. They removed the modded counterfeit cash that was being made by cheaters. If you've played the game you may have found out that some players have had gigantic amounts of cash. There were huge bounties. And by that I mean billions of bucks. Either as acts of altruism or an attempt to launder their cash, cheaters also distributed this cash anonymously to innocent parties.

Rockstar removed all the counterfeit cash last night. (Official announcement from Rockstar.) Now if you're an innocent person who received the cash, you found your account without the counterfeit cash and the balance seems to reflect the honest cash you have earned. If you are an innocent party that received the cash, Rockstar won't go after you. They announced, " Anyone who innocently received GTA$ as a result of these exploits but did not engage in cheating to acquire it will not face any further action - the funds will just be removed, and you'll be able to keep any items you currently own." It's only the actual modders who will face penalties.

This is a good start for Rockstar. And it's good that they will allow innocent parties to keep the things they may have bought with the modded cash. That's because the counterfeit cash was mixed in with a players honest cash. And why am I discussing fake cash in a game that celebrates crime? But I digress. It made sense from an economic standpoint for Rockstar to stop the flow of modded cash. That's because Rockstar allows you to use real money to add in game cash to your account. They obviously lost real money.

But the modded cash is a only one problem with the online portion of the game. The online game is flooded with cheaters. There seems to be players who have extraordinary speed in running and driving. There are things like aimbot which gives a player the ability to auto aim like the single player campaign. A random killed me at will in a manner that was Superman fast. There was also a god mode. If you don't believe me on some of these mods, just Google it. These are totally unfair advantages in competitive games and free mode. It's these cheats that have wrecked the game for those who are honest. Free mode has turned into a place where the modders kill innocent players unfairly. Rockstar should fix these cheats as they are more important than the modded money. These cheats affect gameplay and if they continue, players will likely refuse to play the game online.

Bruce Springsteen joins Jimmy Fallon to poke fun at Chris Christie's traffic jam

Classic. Jimmy Fallon played Bruce Springsteen to sing about New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie's administration decision to create a traffic jam to punish a Democrat. He starts to sing Springsteen's "Born to Run" in a getup from Springsteen's younger years. He is later joined by the real Bruce Springsteen who by the way hails from New Jersey. Also, Christie is a huge Springsteen fan. Ouch. Classic comedy. The Huffington Post transcribed the parody lyrics.

In the day we sweat it out on the streets stuck in traffic on the GWB
They shut down the tollbooths of glory because we didn't endorse Christie

Sprung from cages on Highway 9
We got three lanes closed, So Jersey get your ass in line

Ooohhh, baby this Bridgegate was just pay back
It's a bitch slap to the state Democrats
We gotta get out but we can't,
We're stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam.

[The real Springsteen walks out]

Governor, let me in, I wanna be your friend
They'll be no partisan divisions
Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty rims
And relieve your stressful conditions

We've got Wall Street masters stuck cheek to cheek
With blue-collar truckers, and man I really gotta take a leak
But I can't
I'm stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam

[Guitar solo]

1, 2, 3, 4!

Highways jammed with pissed off drivers with no place left to go
And the press conference went on and on

It was longer than one of my own damn shows

Some day Governor, I don't know when
This will all end, but 'til then

You're killin' the workin' man.
Who's stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam.

Whoa whoa whoa!
Whoa whoa whoa!

I gotta take a leak! I really gotta take a leak!

Down in Jersey land!

Art critic Deborah Solomon discusses Norman Rockwell on The Colbert Report

There's a conception that the late artist Norman Rockwell was a conservative since he painted depictions of traditional average Americans going about their lives. Well last night on The Colbert Report, art critic Deborah Solomon discusses her new book about Rockwell and says he supported liberal Democrats. Fascinating stuff. Check out the video below.

Stephen Colbert on gay athletes representing the U.S. in Russia and his interview with Billie Jean King

Stephen Colbert covered sports last night. Here's his video piece covering A Rod, and the American gay athletes that will represent the United States in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia. It's intentional irony since Russia has anti-gay laws that discriminate against gay speech. It's followed up with an interview with tennis legend Billie Jean King who is part of that delegation.

Jon Stewart shows he is fair and balanced

Remember when Jon Stewart of the Daily Show blasted conservative Donald Trump for eating his pizza with a fork? Well he caught liberal New York Mayor Bill de Blasio eating pizza with a knife and a fork. Stewart goes nuts, so you can say he's fair and balanced. Below is his funny video. And Jon, I'll eat a pizza with a knife and fork if I need my hands to be clean, say when I'm blogging. But I generally eat pizza with my hands.

Jon Stewart rips conservatives over income inequality

Conservatives attack poor people as a reason to not help them. Thank you Jon Stewart of The Daily Show for your funny take on their mean spirited illogical opinions.

The Daily Show on the fight for young people's participation in Obamacare

Colorado is trying to get young people to participate in Obamacare with ads about young guys partying with beer and a woman thinking about getting birth control while lusting after a young guy. Meanwhile, conservatives just get young people drunk with party events to opt out of Obamacare. Yeah, that's right they want kids to not have health insurance. Aasif Mandvi of the Daily Show has this very funny piece with his own TV ad to get people involved with Obamacare.

Jon Stewart on the Christie Traffic Jam Scandal

Okay, so what's the big deal with Governor Chris Christie Traffic Jam Scandal? Well, the allegations are that Christie's administration caused a traffic jam to the town of Fort Lee, New Jersey in retaliation for its mayor's refusal to endorse Christie's re-election. Remember Christie is the conservative front runner for the Republican presidential nomination. Here's Jon Stewart's hilarious take on it. And remember Jon is from New Jersey.

Jon Stewart rips old fart Bill O'Reilly of Fox News over pot

Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, you knew it would be time for old conservatives like Bill O' Reilly of Fox News to blow a gasket. O' Reilly is actually worried about texting and pot use. You heard that right. Thank God for Jon Stewart of the Daily Show who rips O' Reilly a new one over this ridiculous ideas.

Jon Stewart mocks conservative global warming critics

Well, you knew it was going to happen. Conservative global warming critics would use the current cold wave to argue that global warming is a hoax. Sigh. Conservatives, it's called winter. Got to look at the over all statistics. Thank you Jon Stewart of the Daily Show for some levity with the right-wing yahoos. Here are his funny videos with Jessica Williams.

Cool giant snow shark

Three Minnesota teens built a giant snow shark. Kudos to Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz of New Brighton. Check out their video below. Hey, something to smile about. Maybe SyFy can make a movie about the snow shark.

Bengals choke again

If I were a TV network executive, I would never put the Cincinnati Bengals on national television. They can't play when the spotlight is on them. They get mauled by the Pittsburgh Steelers three weeks ago. And now today in the Wild Card game at home, the Cincinnati Bengals lost to the San Diego Chargers, 27-10. Here's the story if you want the gruesome details.

What a disaster. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton let the bad side of himself show up. Two interceptions and one fumble. Bengals running back Giovanni Bernard also fumbled the ball into Chargers end zone. Overall, that's four turnovers. Can't do that in the playoffs. The Bengals may have some of the best talent in the league but they choke when the national spotlight is on them. There's no point to all that talent when you can't win a single playoff game. Might as well go 0 and 16. Don't waste our time, Bengals. Now spring is coming and the baseball season with the Cincinnati Reds. Oh yeah forgot about their playoff record also. Right now, there's a cold rain coming down here in Cincinnati.

UFOs and a crop circle in California

In this report from San Francisco's KGO 7 (ABC), UFOs were sighted all over California from Hollywood to Sacramento on New Year's Eve. Video story below. People saw four to six lights. And according to the video, one witness saw the lights form a diamond shape then spread apart and fly away. This report comes a day after a mysterious crop circle was discovered in Salinas, California shaped like a computer chip.

In the show, The X-Files, FBI Agent Mulder has a poster of a UFO with a caption that says, "I want to believe." Yeah, I would like to say "aliens" are responsible. But I'm not ready to say this activity is attributed to extraterrestrial life. That's a large conclusion that requires large proof. As for the crop circle, I think it's a hoax as there has been a YouTube video like found footage of two guys in the field looking at a mysterious light and one saying, "Dude, this is a crop circle" upon discovering the bent grass. This video is a little too convenient. Found footage right before the circle is discovered? I would like to say, "Dude, this is a hoax" and am waiting for the reveal of an upcoming movie or promotion.

Still, I believe legitimate UFOs should be scientifically studied.

Reds' third basemen Todd Frazier wants to get batting average up

The Cincinnati Reds' third basemen Todd Frazier batted a paltry .234 last year. He hit 19 home runs. He tells MLB that he wants to get his batting average up. You think? Third base is a power position. The Reds need some offense from the left side of the field. It's particularly dire with the loss Shin-Soo Choo. I'm very concerned about the 2014 Reds.

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson recommends Christian men marry fifteen year old girls

From the Huffington Post, here is video of Ducky Dynasty's Phil Robertson speaking at a Christian retreat. He recommends that Christian men marry girls as young as fifteen. Are the Republican conservatives still going to defend him? Oh, he also said the woman you marry should be able to cook a meal and that when women get to be twenty they'll "pick" your pocket. Let's count what this guy is. Homophobic. (Compared homosexuality to bestiality.) Racist. (Believes blacks were happier before the Civil Rights movement. Translate. He thinks they were happier before they were free.) And now add "sexist."

Issac Asimov's predictions from fifty years ago

Legendary science fiction writer Issac Asimov had some predictions fifty years ago. From the Huffington Post, here's what he got right and what he got wrong. The best prediction is the coming of the video phones. See Skype, etc. Second is the prediction of flat screen TVs and or displays. The worst is his call that high school students would be trained in computer sciences i.e. computer languages. Still, he was prescient.
