  2. John Oliver on His Hilarious, NSFW, and Totally Fact-Checked HBO Show | Mother Jones

    Eric Liebowitz/HBOIn late April, former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver kicked off his HBO news-satire program, Last Week Tonight. The premiere episode featured an exclusive televised interview with retired General Keith Alexander, his first since stepping down as director of the National Security Agency. "The Cowboy of the NSA," Foreign Policy magazine dubbed him. "Never before has anyone in America’s intelligence sphere come close to his degree of power, the number of people under his command, the expanse of his rule, the length of his reign, or the depth of his secrecy," Wired declared.

    In other words, it was a pretty good get for John Oliver. So how, exactly, did Last Week Tonight—a fledgling late-night, cable TV comedy show hosted by a British comic—land this exclusive?

    "I think we called him, I think that’s it," Oliver says, laughing. "He was a good sport."

    Oliver, who spent nearly eight years at The Daily Show and has a solid background in political satire, is off to a good start. His weekly series—which offers biting commentary on the past week’s biggest news stories, both national and international—is barely into its inaugural season, and it seems to be hitting the right notes. Matt Wilstein at Mediaite called the show, "the Al Jazeera America of late night"—a label Oliver finds flattering, but far too lofty.

    "That is definitely an attractive-sounding sequence of words; I’m pretty sure that is meaningless," he says. "It’s a comedy show, just about things that we’re interested in. So, yeah, we’ll kind of look off the map a little bit, which will mean we’ll end up looking at Supreme Court cases and foreign elections and international issues just because they’re interesting and people don’t joke about them much, and there’s fun to be had there. But, no, it’s not journalism, it’s comedy—it’s comedy first, and it’s comedy second…There might just be a single serious point wrapped up in 35 stupid jokes."

    Oliver’s assessment may be accurate, but it doesn’t give his show enough credit. Last Week Tonight has so far aired just three episodes (the fourth, featuring CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, airs this Sunday), but it’s already covered some important ground. In their first episode, Oliver and his team did a long segment on the Indian general election, the result of which could quite possibly launch a new round of violence and nuke-related tensions between India and Pakistan. "The seed underneath that whole act of jokes was really that if this isn’t interesting, nothing is interesting," Oliver explains. "And the lack of reporting on it just seemed crazy considering how [many] interesting, and funny, and hugely consequential things were happening." In a subsequent episode, Oliver delivered a thoughtful 12-minute monologue on the death penalty. "Look, I will acknowledge that was a slightly stupid thing to do in a second show on air," he admits. "It’s just that that did feel like the biggest thing of that week; the Oklahoma botched execution threw up so many interesting things to me that I thought it was worth trying, at least."

    In the second episode, Oliver also discussed the recent implementation of a Shariah criminal code in Brunei (the penal code could result in, among other terrible things, gay couples being sentenced to death by stoning). During the segment, Oliver pointed out that the Obama administration had been largely silent on this human rights issue, and that the Last Week Tonight crew had even called the State Department to ask for comment. When I mentioned to him that what he had just described is indeed the work of a reporter, he—again—just laughed. "That is some low-scale reporting, though; that is only one step above a prank phone call," he said. "Literally, a single phone call to say, ‘Hold on, is there any statement on this at all,’ and having them say, ‘No, who’s this?’" (Two days after the Brunei segment aired, the State Department told reporters that the US ambassador to Brunei had conveyed concerns to the government there.)

    "You can’t build a joke on sand, because otherwise then the joke doesn’t work and…everything falls apart," Oliver says.

    Regardless of Oliver’s insistence that Last Week Tonight is not in any respect a journalistic enterprise ("No!" as he put it. "In no respect, in no respect, whatsoever"), he and his team certainly observe some of the same standards that a newsroom does; in some cases, even higher standards. In preparing for upcoming episodes, Oliver & Co. will often reach out to journalists or experts in a certain field for more information and perspective. For instance, prior to the Keith Alexander interview, they got in touch with Shane Harris, who profiled Alexander for Foreign Policy late last year. Furthermore, their staff includes Charles Wilson, an alumnus of the New York Times and The New Yorker, who now serves as the show’s "journalistic fact-checker," in Oliver’s words.

    "You can’t build a joke on sand, because otherwise then the joke doesn’t work and…everything falls apart," Oliver says. "So you gotta make sure, even if it’s sometimes incredibly frustrating, if you get excited about a joke angle, and then your fact-checker says, ‘Yeah, you can’t say that. That’s not right.’ And it’s a tough job. I remember when I was talking to Charles before he joined the show, I was just saying, ‘It is the thankless position to have to walk into a room that has kind of a joyful momentum behind it…and be the one saying, ‘Yeah, you can’t do any of that. It’s not true.’"

    None of this is to say that they can’t indulge in sillier, more lighthearted fare, either. Last Week Tonight recently aired a pair of fake, truly NSFW political attack ads, one of which includes shots of an old, wrinkled penis that is supposed to represent Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. (Click here to read Oliver’s explanation of how this segment came about, and how they auditioned and picked the perfect penis to represent McConnell.)

    "The stridency, and the intense comfort with a lack of scientific information, is ludicrous…This world will be a complete ball of fire before it stops being funny."

    In the same episode, Oliver expressed his frustration with the so-called climate "debate" in America by staging a more representative debate between a few climate skeptics and nearly a hundred scientists. (These numbers—97 and 3—were based on a now-world famous study of published climate science papers, showing that 97 percent of studies that took a stand on whether humans are warming the planet said the answer is "yes.") One of the guys on the correct side of the "debate" was Bill Nye (the Science Guy), who was booked for the show basically at the last minute.

    "We just wanted to really play with that idea that the very fact that the climate debate is framed as a debate at all is problematic," Oliver says. "So, we just had this idea, when we were talking it through, ‘Oh, well, how about having 97 scientists in a room talking about it, because that would look unwieldy and ridiculous.’ And then we found out late Saturday night—so we tape early Sunday evening [in front of a live audience in New York City]—that Bill Nye was actually in [town]…So the Bill Nye elements came basically a few hours before we shot…We’d looked into the fire regulations for having 100 people storm a stage, so we’d kind of done that, we’d looked into that for a couple of days before, when we came up with the idea and wanted to do it. But Bill Nye never even got to rehearse it…It all came together pretty fast."

    Oliver is confident they’ll do more, in-depth climate pieces in the near future. However, it’s not because he’s passionate about climate science; it’s excellent fodder for comedy. "I’m not an activist, but as a comedian, some of how it’s talked about is incredibly funny to me," he says. "The stridency, and the intense comfort with a lack of scientific information, is ludicrous—it’s objectively ludicrous. So I’m attracted to going to wherever the biggest hypocrisy is, and there feels like there’s some good mining to be done regarding environmental issues…This world will be a complete ball of fire before it stops being funny."

    As for whatever else lies in the future for Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, it’s anybody’s guess—at least that’s what its host will tell you: "I’m not sure we entirely know what the show is yet, or how we should be making it," Oliver says. "We’re not in a rhythm; we’re in kind of survival mode—it’s controlled drowning at the moment…We haven’t done anything; we’ve only done three shows, which is nothing, so we’re still working everything out. That is the exciting and the terrifying thing…It’s definitely fun—frightening, and fun."

  3. The Walking Eye Monster Hearts Revew 1 Hour

    Justin Says:

    December 10th, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Fun review, folks! I’m glad you enjoyed Monsterhearts. I’ve played a few sessions with my group, and I hope to play a few more sometime soon.

    I’m really interested in the difficulties you’ve had with color first play. In retrospect, I can see those struggles in all the AW games you’ve recorded. My group had some similar problems when we started playing AW games, and I have a few suggestions for how to approach this kind of play.

    1) Clarify, clarify, clarify! – Whenever there’s misunderstanding or ambiguity about what a character is doing, take a second to clarify what’s going on. These games don’t work unless we have a solid understanding of what’s actually happening in the fiction. We don’t have to pause constantly, but if there’s some kind of significant action someone doesn’t understand, it’s probably worthwhile to clarify.

    2) Play for action, not for effect – These games tend to get really strange if you narrate with the intent of invoking a move. Don’t think about how to Lash out Physically, think about whether your character is going to punch that douchebag. In my experience, if you think about the moves first, then the action tends to stagnate, and narration becomes an obligatory chore rather than the meat of play. These games need you to be interested in what your character is doing right now, not in the particular mechanical effect you’ll produce.

    3) Don’t plan the narrative – Characters can plan all they want, but players should probably avoid it. First, if you’re following the rules and using the moves, any plans you make will quickly crumble. It’s kind of a waste of time in that respect. Second, if you actually try to enact the plan, these games will lock down and stagnate. These games completely rely on having a play space that is only constrained by what’s been established in the fiction. If there’s some kind of external sense about how the game’s “supposed to go,” then everyone’s going to have to fight the rules to make it go that way. In my group’s play, those situations have always been the least interesting and least engaging.

    4) Talk about the moves – Before game. During game. Whenever. All the time. I mean this regarding moves in general and specific moves. Everyone has to have a fairly close understanding about how moves work and under what circumstances each particular move triggers. This smooths our interactions with the moves, and helps us have more consistent expectations for overall play. It can definitely be jarring to be surprised by the presence of absence of a move.

    For what it’s worth, I think you folks did great, and it was really fun to listen to.

    Pretty sweet wrap up!

    I did want to comment that it seemed like some of the players were approaching the game in a “mechanics first”

    kind of way, looking at what Moves they wanted to trigger and then saying so, rather than saying what their characters did and then everyone watching to see if moves should trigger from it.

    This especially seemed to be the case with Dan.

    From the beginning, during highlighting, he was talking about how he wasn’t going to ever use Hot, because it was low, and so he’d just never use it, and I was thinking “That’s not really your call…

    there are moves that use it, and you might make those moves.”

    And then, the first thing Mara did (run naked and crying up to cop, wailing about Omar attacking her) seemed really clearly, to me at least, to be Manipulating an NPC.

    He said he wanted to Turn Someone On, but wow, I kept thinking “that really doesn’t sound like the move happening here.”

    But I guess you were all cool with it, and that’s what counts…

    It similarly seemed like an awful big stretch to me to claim that Mara was “heedlessly pursuing a hunger” when she attacked Omar.

    It had already been established that Omar wasn’t the biggest, easiest, source of fear in the area.

    It really felt to me, as an outside listener, like Dan just wanted to attack the biggest threat and was trying to justify it being part of the move for the bonus.

    But all of you seemed happy with how things went, so that’s what matters, and it was definitely still great to listen to.

    On a more abstract note, but related to Dan’s attempt to Turn On the cop…

    it says in the book that PCs don’t get to say things like “That wouldn’t turn me on, I’m straight” but it seems unclear to me whether that’s something the MC should be able to say about NPCs.

    I get the rationale of it being off the table for PCs… a big part of the theme is the weirdness and unpredictability of teenage sexuality.

    But not all NPCs are teenagers… it seems like it might be reasonable that adult NPCs have sexual identities that are more “set” and thus maybe it’s okay, sometimes, for an MC to say “Yeah, no, this person isn’t going to be turned on by that.

    Try something else if you really want that move to work.”

    But I’m not really sure…

    Omar returns from triggering his darkest self to find Mara in his bed, but not the way he may have wanted. Crowe makes some odd and confusing discoveries. Allegra finds out she has to blanket things in darkness pretty quickly when the players keep rolling poorly. All in all, a good session, everyone brings the darkness and angst!

  8. Technical Difficulties - 057 - Reinventing Yourself with Merlin Mann

    Gabe and Erik are joined by Merlin Mann to talk about starting over, what you really should be doing with your life, verbing, inventors, and emotional petshops.

    Producer’s Note

    This week is the first of what will be monthly episodes with a guest and a slightly longer running time. We don’t think that anyone reading this or listening to the episode needs an introduction to Merlin Mann, but we do want to set the stage a little bit.

    Just as this podcast is essentially Generational reborn, many of us have at one point reinvented ourselves. Sometimes this reinvention is more of a realization, and sometimes we make a conscious decision to make a change. When Erik and Gabe decided they wanted to talk about this together, they thought Merlin would be the perfect guest to serve as both foil and therapist. He graciously agreed to join them on this episode, and we think you will enjoy the result.

    If you haven’t read Merlin’s own introduction in a while, you should take a look. It’s perfect.

    John and Merlin are trying to help you . Especially if you think you don’t need their help. See: that’s part of the problem …

    There’s really no excuse for missing the supplemental material over at the official Tumblr site.

    Merlin has co-hosted Back to Work with Dan Benjamin since January 18, 2011.

    You Look Nice Today holds a special place in every nerd’s heart. The trio of Merlin, Scott Simpson and Lonely Sandwich were proof that smart humor is timeless and that we all missed out on the potential for baby butlers.

    Merlin’s appearances on MacBreak Weekly are some of the best episodes of tech podcasting and date way back to 2006. Just start in the archives and work your way forward.

    Merlin has delivered many tutorials and application reviews through the, mostly defunct, MacBreak show. If you’re like us, it was a Merlin video in 2006 that introduced you to the power of Quicksilver and changed the way you used your Mac (also the first thing he ever did with Leo Laporte). At least until Quicksilver broke your heart.

    Merlin’s most recent visit on TWIT was way back in 2011

    Merlin’s been involved with OmniFocus since before the first public release. The application has benefitted from his unique influence and you can watch his most recent video about how he uses the tool.

    Gabe’s Note

    The show notes you are reading right now take a lot of work. It’s work that we believe is worth the time and effort, thanks to Merlin. The Back to Work show notes are the inspiration that started us along this path. Merlin is very often the originator of the things I find valuable and interesting.

    Producer’s Note

    The concept of three worlds is a carryover from the Cold War. It came into being after World War II as a way to describe the split of the globe in to two large blocs, Communism and capitalism. The First World represented the capitalist West, democracy, moonbeams, and unicorns. The Second World represented, communism, socialist, industrial states, red stars, and evil. The Third World represented everyone else not aligned with the First or Second Worlds.

    This idea was also formed when everything was seen to be evolving, and the First World was defined as the bright and shining light that the other “worlds” would eventually become. Unsurprisingly, this opinion wasn’t universally held, and Mao Zedong’s alternative Three Worlds Theory divides the globe into superpowers (First World) and the superpowers’ allies (Second World), with the leftovers as the Third World.

    This term no longer has its original clear definitions, and the First World is now used as a pot-and-kettle shaming technique on Twitter, and the Third World as a convenient “bin” for the aforementioned shamers and politicians to put poor foreigners. Fortunately, First World folks have now defined a Fourth World in which to put the weird people from their own countries.

    “You’re going to spend a lot of your cycles just trying to figure out what you should be learning”

    Producer’s Note

    Merlin’s reference to William James is likely the result of the epigram often attributed to him: “Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.” This quip, which runs parallel to Occam’s Razor, has also been attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte and Richard Feynman referred to as Hanlon’s Razor, but the James tie seems most common on the internet due to a Jargon File Entry. I have more about why “Hanlon,” but you’re just here for Merlin anyway….

  9. Want To Make Your Life Better? Keep Track Of It : NPR

    The Quantified Self movement promotes something called life logging. That means tracking all kinds of details of your life in order to improve it. To find out more about the topic, David Greene talks to two people involved with life logging: Kitty Ireland, who works for a life logging app called Saga, and to David Goldstein, who turned to life logging with the help of a coach.
