Resolution Defeated

I don’t normally make New Years resolutions, but I did this year. I decided that, it being a US election year, with all the primaries and so forth before the main event in November where they elect the de facto leader of the world, I should keep on top of things. To do this, I decided I would watch every episode of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report aired this year. It’s not as bad as it sounds, they total 40 minutes and are on only 4 times a week. I’d been doing well, fell a bit behind due to too many Amazing Race marathons, but they’ve been off-air the past two weeks so I’ve been catching up.

Until June 26th, when I came face to face with this:
Coldplay and John Stewart

Yes, tonight’s guest was Coldplay. And not just Chris Martin going on to chat about his latest good cause, that I could have handled. Or the band playing out the show: managable. But no, they were going to play two tracks off the new album. It’s only the 3rd time in it’s history they’ve had a musical guest do that, my bad luck I guess. I couldn’t stomach it, so the resolution is blown. Come the end of the year I’ll have seen every episode except the second part of June 26th’s. Damn you Chris Martin.

    Jon Stewart really is very short. That image makes me laugh every time I see it now.

  2. I fell into the trap of this episode as well – and I BARELY WATCH THE DAILY SHOW.
