"480 Minutes" - Laugh Resist Persist

This is a public service announcement (without guitars): We must laugh.  We must resist.  We must persist.  We must keep watching Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Steven Colbert, and the rest as they reveal truth through satire.

The backstabbing and name-calling between Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner is kinda hysterical, the Jared Goes To Iraq story and photos are almost too absurd to mock, Colbert's Sean Spicer/Muppets mash-up is 30-seconds of genius, and the fact that Breitbart labeled Fox New as "the enemy" made me spit up my seltzer.  We surely need to laugh to keep from crying during these dangerous times, but the administration's content-free verbal responses to the use of sarin gas in Syria and the idea that Chump is being goaded into war while warning his pals Putin and Assad in advance is no laughing matter.

This is a public service announcement (with guitars): Today the award-winning 480 Minutes show today will contain new songs by The Black Angels (Austin, TX, @theblackangels), Clustersun (Catania, Italy, @clustersun), Depeche Mode (Basildon, England, @depechemode), Diet Cig (New Paltz, NY, @dietcig), Formation (London, England, @formationmusic), Happyness (London, England, @happynessmusic), The Jesus and Mary Chain (East Kilbride, Scotland, @TheMaryChain), Mastodon (Atlanta, GA, @mastodonmusic), Nectarines (Long Beach, CA, @somanywizards), The New Pornographers (Vancouver, Canada, @TheNewPornos), Oumou Sangare (Bamako, Mali),  Stella Diana (Naples, Italy, @stelladiana4), Tashaki Miyaki (Los Angeles, CA, @tashaki_miyaki), and Western Daughter (Boise, Idaho, @wstrndghtr).
