we are young and stupid and raised by wolves

(this is not real life. these are not pictures of me. I am 25 years old and a woman and passionate about politics and fanfiction and, as far as you are concerned, I only exist online.)

A Minute With: John Oliver on channeling rage into comedy

As Quickreaver said there was a lack of Sam on her dash…♥

Drawn on white paper then inverted in Photoshop (pencil an charcoal) + PS enhancements (shadows, highlights and manuscript texture). Basically, it’s this technique. I’m experimenting. ^^;;

SQUEEEEEEE! *ahem* I think I approve.

I have no earned authority to talk about anything.

There was this day over the summer that I was worried about (that) happening — and I’d said to Jon (Stewart) before I was worried about something coming up where I didn’t feel like I had the authority to speak on it, and it was more emotional than it was easy to put through our regular prism.

He said, “Well, I don’t think it’s unearned, but even if it is, this will be the time that you earn it.” And it happened. We had to do a show a day after the Trayvon Martin verdict. That was a tough day. Partly because I felt his absence a lot, the whole day and especially that night with a live audience, you feel like people are looking to him.

And I tried my hardest. We tried to write from the heart to deal with the pain. I did my best. I still think it would have been better if he was there that day. So, I need to kind of earn (it). I did that on credit.

It’s like being handed a nail gun when you’re a 3-year-old and thinking, “Wow, this is amazing. Should I be trusted with this? I hope I don’t aim it at my own face.”

John Oliver, describing what it’s like to get his own show

Oliver considers Gash a breakthrough — the inflection point in his career when he made enough money for real cheese and orange juice with pulp. High-quality juice remains a symbol of success for Oliver. “Just this morning I’m looking at this nice orange juice in the fridge from Citarella,” he muses. “And I thought, ‘Wow, look at that.’ “

There’s something about living here that is inherently ridiculous because it costs too much, it’s not clean, it’s not pleasant and you just get addicted to it. Eight million people have made a bad choice. And I’m one of those 8 million. I don’t think New Yorkers are angry with each other as they are so much angry with themselves. It’s a huge character flaw.
