Jimmy Kimmel isn’t done being Senator Bill Cassidy’s biggest pest

TwitterFacebook

When you’re only trying to save health care for 30 million people, you’ve got to be a little persistent.

The man you’d least expect to be on the front foot for saving health care in America, Jimmy Kimmel, is far from resting in his battle to ensure the Graham-Cassidy bill doesn’t cut funding to the most vulnerable. 

Entering into round three of the debate on Thursday night, Kimmel took aim at President Donald Trump, who recently got involved in the debate on Twitter (where else). 

For Kimmel, Trump’s support for the bill is more about politics than it is about a bill that’s, you know, actually good. Read more…

Behold: Kermit the Frog’s new voice

TwitterFacebook

It’s not easy being green or switching voices, but Kermit’s making it work.

Muppet veteran Matt Vogel made his vocal debut as the iconic frog on Monday’s episode of “Muppets Thought of the Week,” allowing fans to hear the new Kermit for the very first time — and luckily not much seems to have changed.

Back in July it was announced that Steve Whitmire, who had voiced Kermit for the past 27 years, had parted ways with Disney. Vogel, who joined Sesame Street in 1996, has voiced several popular roles on the show, and is the third person to ever voice Kermit.

Have a listen for yourself and see if you can tell the difference. Read more…

What Jaime’s big moment with Cersei means for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

TwitterFacebook

Ah, Jaime Lannister. Longtime kingslayer, first-time queen betrayer.

Turns out that most of the biggest political maneuvers in Game of Thrones Season 7 finale were a farce. For all her apparent fear of the wight from beyond the Wall and waffling over whether or not to join the Great War, Cersei was full of it the whole dang time.

That was one of the bombshell revelations from the episode’s concluding sprint across Westeros: Cersei still gonna Cersei. She’s been a vile, duplicitous monster for seven straight seasons and, hey… she’s still got it!

Although she agreed to stand beside Dany, Jon, and their assembled forces to fight in the Great War, Cersei never intended to do anything of the sort. Instead, she sent punk rock pirate boytoy Euron Greyjoy off on a secret mission to retrieve the Golden Company mercenaries: 20,000 warriors — with elephants — who can defeat dragons, I guess?

Why Apple’s not going to sell an OLED TV

TwitterFacebook

It’s no secret Apple really, really wants to reinvent the TV. On his deathbed, Steve Jobs expressed great interest in fixing the crummy TV watching experience, telling his biographer Walter Isaacson that he had “finally cracked it.”

Jobs said he wanted to create an “integrated television set that is completely easy to use” and “would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.”

In 2014, leakers and analysts repeatedly said Apple would release its own TV set, which many speculated could have been powered by Siri. No such Apple-branded TV was ever released and many believe Apple shelved it. Read more…

Gilly’s nighttime reading on ‘Game of Thrones’ may have just changed everything

TwitterFacebook

Sometimes, Game of Thrones characters spend years chasing mysteries, risking life and limb to dig up secrets that have the potential to shake up the entire playing board as we know it.

And then other times, they casually stumble across them while enjoying a bit of light bedtime reading.

In this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, Gilly unearths a bombshell with potentially life-changing consequences for Dany, Jon … and the entirety of the Seven Kingdoms, really. 

While paging through the records of the former High Septon Maynard, Gilly asks Sam about a word she doesn’t understand. “What’s annulment?” Read more…
