Late Night Television Is Shaking Things Up

It is interesting to see how late night television is changing. People are impressed with the way that Jimmy Fallon has made an awesome transition from SNL to late night television. He has been a true late night sensation that has become very important in the television scene. Still, Fallon is not at the top when it comes to seasons ratings because he got trumped by Stephen Colbert during the 2017 season. Much of this has to do with the great amount of talk about the Donald Trump campaign and presidency.

It appears that the American public just cannot get enough of the antics of Donald Trump. So many comedians and late night talk show hosts have made a habit of putting material together for Trump jokes, and this has allowed Colbert to win a big crowd. He may have been struggling with “The Colbert Report” before he came into late night television, but he has certainly because a lot more masterful in keeping his audience engaged with his new late night show format. There is a lot of praise for the work that he has been doing, and few people thought that he would be able to beat Jimmy Fallon in ratings.

To be fair, Colbert attracts a crowd of older adults. The playing field has been leveled with the addition of Stephen Colbert. Jimmy Fallon, with his diverse paint, The Roots, would play a big part in attracting a millennial crowd. It would be up to someone like Stephen Colbert to show up and build a late night platform that would appeal to an older crowd. He has been able to do this successfully, and it appears that Jimmy Fallon has competition. Late night television has officially been shaken up, and Stephen Colbert has been doing the shaking.

Conan O’Brien Takes His Show To San Diego Comic-Con

Late night talk show host Conan O’Brien is taking his late night talk show to the nerd-friendly San Diego Comic-Con this week and as you might expect, the shows have been filled with lots of unexpected moments.

On Wednesday, O’Brien spoke with Will Smith about the new movie “Bright,” as well as “Supernatural” stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Smith was joined by “Bright” co-stars Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry and director David Ayer. The movie, which premieres on Netflix in December, was described by Smith as having “the energy of Training Day meets Lord of the Rings.” The “Supernatural” discussion was predictably unstructured and it was topped off with the group celebrating Padalecki’s birthday with a traditional keg stand.

Thursday night’s show featured the cast of the new movie “Kingsman: The Golden Cirle,” and much of the talk revolved around the nicknames given to each other by the cast. The names were all names of drinks and Colin Firth said he was pretty happy with his nickname, “Tequila.” Co-star Jeff Bridges complained that he wasn’t pleased by his nickname, “Champagne,” and he asked everyone to call him “Champ.”

Firth also shrugged off questions about his character, who appeared to have died in the first Kingsman movie. Firth’s character, Harry, appears in the new movie’s trailer and Firth told O’Brien he continues to insist he only appears in the trailer. Singer Elton John also appears in the movie, although the assembled cast all claimed they had never met him in person.

O’Brien will wrap up his week at Comic-Con with interviews of the casts from “Game Of Thrones” and the “Lego Ninjago Movie.”

The Cathartic Lyrics of Chester Bennington

The music world is again reeling today after the loss of Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington, who was found deceased in his California apartment yesterday due to an apparent suicide. The rockers death comes just one month after the suicide of grunge icon Chris Cornell. Music itself is a well-known cathartic process and Chester made it well known in his lyrics and interviews about his struggle not only with depression and addiction but his traumatic experience with molestation as a child. His vocals would scream pain and agony over each melody but ironically his songs gave those who could commiserate with his afflictions – hope. Linkin Park magnificently walked the bridge of rock and rap effortlessly in their career, even collaborating with rapper Jay-Z to birth Collision Course – a 2004 EP mixing hit songs from both artists into singles. This 6 song experiment thrilled fans and skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and even went on to win one of the highest honors in music – a Grammy, one of two awarded to the group during their reign. In a 2009 interview with Noise Creep, Chester discussed how his addiction lended itself to the band’s song “Crawling”, a near literal depiction of the emotional turmoil he experienced as a drug and alcohol addict. As battled recovery, fans were able to lyrically view his journey through each song and album released. His most recent song “Heavy” continued this trend. While Chester may be gone, his music and lyrics provided a voice to those who felt they had no way to express the darkness or sadness that often visits them. With his music, his fans will always have an opportunity to verbalize their pain through his lyrics and through that gift, his legacy will always live on.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to Rescue Consumers From Wordy Agreements.

Earlier this year, the self-proclaimed father of the World Wide Web, Berners-Lee expressed his concerns on how companies and other enterprises use dense terms and conditions to scare consumers from reading them and sneak in abrasive clauses. The European Union, seemingly aware of the unethical legal arm-stringing that consumers have been subjected to by all sorts of product and private providers, conjured the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a framework of guidelines which is meant to instill transparency in the terms and conditions to which users in the member countries of the European Union can be subjected.
Popular European Wi-Fi provider (it has foreign branches), Purple, made an objective study that had results which showed just how bad the present use of terms and conditions has become. The study, which was reportedly assumed to be a publicity stunt by some industry players, involved over 22,000 people who participated unaware of the real objective of the study.
The study was conducted by providing Wi-Fi connections to over 22,000 people who were provided access to Wi-Fi connections to access their social media platforms and online professional portfolios and communication apps. The Wi-Fi also let them gain access to entertainment sites. However, to access the services, those people had to agree to the terms and conditions, which were construed in a wordy fashion to fend off readers. The terms and conditions obliged the Wi-Fi users to commit 1,000 hours of customer service and legally obligated them to clean toilets, unblock sewers, collect animal waste in parks and offer free hugs to stray domestic pets in a community service clause.
The terms and agreement also featured another clause that promised anyone who would notice the queer obligations to report to Purple offices and collect a prize. Out of the 22,000 persons who subscribed to the Purple services, only one person bothered to collect the prize.

Kanye and Jay-Z Experience Beef

The Verge offers readers an interesting story about the developing problems between Jay-Z and Kanye West. If you are a fan of either of these artists, your time would be well spent reading through this content in order to keep up with the latest in this saga. Kanye and Jay have always had a relationship that is volatile to say the least, there have been some good times and some not so great times according to both sides. In fact, this is a theme that Kanye discussed on his track titled ‘Big Brother” on his album Graduation. More recently, the two released an album titled The Throne which quickly lead to a tour that sold out areas all across the United States. However, the two are apparently on the outs at the moment. Kanye has now ended his exclusive partnership with the music streaming platform Tidal. Kanye claims that Tidal owes him $3 million and is guilty of breaching their contractual agreement. West released his popular Life of Pablo album exclusively on the service and he has yet to be compensated as promised for the exclusive release of this project.

Jay-z mentioned a $20 loan that he provided to West on his 4:44 album which is now streaming on the Tidal platform. However, Kanye says that he was supposed to receive compensation for a video and this never happened. Along with these allegations, there has apparently been a rift in the relationship since Kanye claims that he could not get Jay-z to call him. This is surprising since the two were supposed to be as close as brothers at some point. Many people have speculated that their relationship has become strained over the last few years due to the fact that their wives simply do not like one another. Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are very different people, this makes it very difficult for them to spend time together as a group. Keep up the date with the latest Kanye drama as it unfolds here.
