I confess — I sometimes find Stephen Colbert’s schtick wearing. But other times…whoa, this is beautiful. He got stood up by a musical guest, Daft Punk, so he complains about it bitterly and hilariously. Ooops, stuffed it below the fold because the stupid videos are on autoplay.

A quick note

You must read today’s xkcd: The Pace of Modern Life. That’s all, gotta go. I just had to pluck out one example. The managers of sensational newspapers…do not try to educate their readers and make them better, but tend to create perverted tastes and develop vicious tendencies.
