iVoice: Coldplay’s Chris Martin Tries to Befriend Thom Yorke


  CorporalMartin: Hey Thom! Long time, no talk!
  Away message from SargeantYorke:

busy not being coldplay

  CorporalMartin: 🙁
  CorporalMartin: I know you’re just jokin’! Let me know when you get back in!
  CorporalMartin: Thom? You there?
  SargeantYorke: hris martin looks like an emaciated donkey
  SargeantYorke: oh, sorry, wrong window.
  CorporalMartin: Oh.
  CorporalMartin: Well, I was just gonna ask, did you happen to see that we came out with another album?
  SargeantYorke: oh did you really
  CorporalMartin: Yeah! And y’know, we’re pretty big fans of you guys
  SargeantYorke: yeah, i heard.

isn’t it great how I wrote Ok Computer and I still have both my balls?

  CorporalMartin: oh shit you read that

  CorporalMartin: ah, well . . .

so of course, we were curious to see what you thought of our new record!

  SargeantYorke: listen man, i don’t have time to go to, type in “jack johnson bono masturbate” and listen through the radio station for two hours
  CorporalMartin: Oh, you don’t have to do that. It’s in stores!
  SargeantYorke: what the fuck is a store
  SargeantYorke: anyway i think i get the idea of “coldplay”
  SargeantYorke: you sit at a piano and sing falsetto about being sorry

then you explain that it’s unique because you recorded in a warehouse or a church or a port-a-john or whatever the god fuck

  SargeantYorke: oh man, i hope your album has art on it! i hope that art is supposed to symbolize something!
  CorporalMartin: Actually, it does! It’s a
  SargeantYorke: nobody cares
  CorporalMartin: Well okey doke then. Sorry to bug you. I just think it’d be really great if you gave it a listen! Honest critique is welcome!
  Away message from SargeantYorke:

performing a webcast in a soiled undershirt, be back later

  CorporalMartin: aw jeez
**OnlineHost** Later that evening…
  SargeantYorke: oh man, so you wouldn’t believe who messaged me today

fuckin chris martin from coldplay

  SargeantYorke: guy is such a douchebag, coldplay sucks so bad
  TOM_WAITS: why do you say that
  SargeantYorke: well i mean, heh, it’s coldplay, come on
  TOM_WAITS: son i heard the new coldplay album, it’s nothin spectacular but it’s really not bad
  TOM_WAITS: did you even listen to it or did you just decide to get all snarky about it pre-emptively
  SargeantYorke: well

well i mean no, but

  TOM_WAITS: think on this, lazy-eye

some folks like you and me can get away with shit. i can sell millions of albums of me whacking a plumbing fixture with a lead pipe and screaming about setting my wife on fire

  TOM_WAITS: and you can get away with goddamn “push/pull revolving doors”
  TOM_WAITS: and if we weren’t so lucky we might just have to spit our dicks out our mouths and write regular people music
  SargeantYorke: well yeah maybe
  TOM_WAITS: how about you actually listen to it, i kind of like some songs on there
  TOM_WAITS: i’m outta here
