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:
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.
