Just a quick reminder you have until midnight EST to get you photos of “who or what you love” on to Instagram to qualify for the flyaway getaway! That’s just under 90 minutes from right now! Don’t forget to hashtag #bklovesmayer !
It’s a great contest & supposedly John Mayer is choosing the winner himself!
Good Luck Lovies!
ok this is totally non John Mayer related, but I have a favor of all my loyal fans! a radio station in new jersey is running a contest for veteran’s day. the 10 finalists are on the page with their stories. Hey John Mayer is very involved with charities for veterans so maybe it’s not so unrelated after all!!!!!
anyway, there are less than 2 hours left for voting! It ends at midnight EST! please, please, please use the link below & vote for “Bob from Toms River!” Kencis is a friend of mine & she deserves this $10,000 home makeover!!!!
I’m begging you! remember it ends in 2 hours & you can vote repeatedly! Why not do a little something to help a veteran & mother out while adding a few coins to your karma bank!
By now you’ve all realized that I am just mad about John Mayer. I’ve even listed you 50 reasons why I love John Mayer in a previous post, but I’m about to make it all as simple as I possibly can for you. There are 3 main reasons why I simply adore John Mayer: his music & talent, his undeniably ravishing good looks & charm, & most importantly his wit & unmatched sense of humor! Does anyone stand to question any of these reasons? I thought not. You are after all, here of your own free will leading me believe you don’t truly think he’s a douche (at least most of the time).
I spend a great deal of time searching around for these old videos. They never fail to amuse me & I hope you enjoy them as well. I’m always hoping & praying that this “younger, mischievous, & more carefree” John Mayer isn’t lost forever! We all have to grow up, but where is the fun in being serious all the time? I’ve heard people toss around several reasons for what seems to be a change in John Mayer’s personality: influence from his latest love Katy, his PR people telling him to zip it, simple maturity. Now these or any number of other reasons could be behind the change we’ve seen in JM‘s demeanor as of late. I can tell you this, however, we have seen a glimpse or two of the old John Mayer here & there throughout this tour. It’s refreshing & uplifting to know the old John Mayer is still in there somewhere.
Whenever someone shoots out one of those “If you could hang with anyone” questions in an attempt to analyze a personality my answer is always John Mayer! No hesitation, no pondering, John Mayer is the #1 person I would love to sit down & get drunk with or just chill, but I think he’d be real fun while having a few cocktails! Don’t you? I can tell just by going back & watching the videos of his interviews & concert footage, not to mention the ones like the hologram video & this one below! I’m not sure there is anything about John Mayer that I dislike. I can say this because I don’t really know him in a day to day relationship, but also because I think he can be forgiven for almost anything he says or does. He makes it all so damn funny that it doesn’t matter how offensive or politically incorrect it may be! I love it!!! (funny moment: I wrote this post about a week ago & have kept it in my drafts & didn’t someone ask JM who he’d want to hang out with! lol of course he didn’t give a serious answer)
So, I told you about John Mayer starting this “Dashboard Confessions” Q & A session on Tumbr last night. Gave you all the info. well in advance. You had a considerable amount of time to ponder the “perfect” question. Did it keep you awake at night contemplating whether or not you should ask John Mayer a serious question or appeal to his more cheeky side & go with something witty or fun? Were hours spent mulling over the perfect thing to say? Did you nervously wait counting down the minutes until JohnMayer himself might possibly answer your question? Only to see John reply to questions like: “Were you a good singer since you were a child?” , “Do you prefer your hair long or short?” & “Did guitar playing come naturally or did you struggle?” Then to add insult to injury he answers 2 questions by the same person more than once!
Ok, so maybe your anticipation (or mine) is a little bit exaggerated above, but you get the point. Morgan & I were so curious as to how this was going to play out. I figured JM would take some serious questions & some more lighthearted ones which he did & even used his glib talents to make a few funnies here & there. This is great! We love this John Mayer! We accept & treasure him any way we can get him whether it be formal or fresh, but we only had one hour & I felt it may have been a bit wasted at times. With that I don’t mean he wasted my time so much as wasted what could be valuable Q&A time. As his devoted fans we know he developed his singing much later than his guitar playing & we also know that he spent insurmountable hours learning & practicing to play guitar. Not that he doesn’t have a gift, because he obviously does, but we know he wasn’t composing at the age of 5.
So all in all, there were some pretty good questions & then some not as good questions answered. I guess that’s the way it goes. lol He took a pic for someone & made me chuckle a few times. Starting promptly at 7pm EST he filled the full hour plus a few minutes. There is something to be said for a man who is prompt & doesn’t leave people lying around waiting for him. And surely people would wait for our beloved John Mayer! Well you might, but I have serious issues with tardiness. It is my biggest pet peeve! I must add here that we never waited for his shows to start either, very impressive! I love that!!!! (but I still might wait just a few minutes for John Mayer, I Mean come on, he’s John Mayer)
If I adore him so much why then, do I always seem to be criticizing our poor John Mayer? I feel like I’m always bitching about him & I’m not sure why. Well of course in my world I would be getting my questions answered & my pictures noticed. Perhaps that’s all it is, a bit of jealousy & sometimes I’m not sure it’s even his fault (Patrick!)!?! Without a doubt that’s definitely part of it, but at least I can admit it! lol
So what was my question for John Mayer, you ask? Well knowing me, I’m sure you can figure out it was nothing too serious & probably a bit brash! However, I’m not going to tell you. I’m going to continue asking the same question each time he does one of these little Dashboard Confessions & see if I ever get answered! They did make it sound like it would be something that happens again, but didn’t give any clue as to how regularly.
This is the end of the session. Sweet & friendly he appears genuine. Let’s hope he’s back soon!!!!!!
Thanks everyone for participating and reading along. I hope we get to do this again sometime. Hey, you guys remember AOL in 1996, when there were chats, and there was a moderator named Bev and she would play host to the person people were chatting with, and then Bev would say something like “well that’s all the time we have, many thanks to John Mayer for being here and you all for participating”? I remember that. I’ll be Bev in this scenario and thank Tumblr for having me, and you guys for being a part of this. Hope to see you out on the road or inside your computer soon. Lots of love, and happy holidays.
One last thing: John Mayer announced today that he’d be switching his Instagram account from mrjcmayer to the previously PR overseen account of johnmayer. He also promises to post more often! I think that little Tumblr session retweaked his internet addiction. That’s just fine with us!!!!!!!
Let us know what you thought of the first installment of Dashboard Confessions from John Mayer on Tumblr!
Tonight is the big night! John Mayer’s Born and Raised tour resumes in Lincoln, NE. I am soooo envious! Morgan & I want to see him again so damn bad!!!! I think this John Mayer obsession may be going a bit too far! LoL Well we hope he got a little rest while he was out cruising the world with Ms. Perry. News reports make it sound like she & John Mayer have only just returned within the past few days! I know my vacations abroad certainly aren’t restful ! Nonetheless, I do hope those of you seeing him tonight & throughout the next month before he breaks again have a smashingly good time!
Don’t forget tonight live @ 7:00pm EST is John Mayer’s dashboard confessions on Tumblr. So get your questions in to John’s Tumblr & maybe he’ll pick yours! They don’t indicate how long this Q&A will be, but it can’t be too long as he does have a show tonight.
One more reminder for you: there are 4 days left to get your Who You Love/ #BKLovesMayer entries in to Instagram to enter to win tickets, air, meet & greet, & hotel stay for the Brooklyn show on 12/17/13. How exciting!!!! That’s a great package. You can find all the details @ billboard.com. Best of luck to you!! (& me! LoL)
P.S. In case you’re unable to see John Mayer this weekend, Catching Fire is a fantastic movie. Morgan & I went to the “midnight” premier yesterday! It was outstanding. I’m not sure what people think you didn’t read the books. I think they’d still agree it was excellent! Or you could sit home watching silly John Mayer videos on YouTube! LoL
The following was released today on John Mayer’s website. Sounds kind of cool!
“John Mayer signed up for Tumblr four years ago this month. For the very first time, he is turning on the “ask” feature for a brand new, live Tumblr interview series that we call Dashboard Confessions.
Follow JM, drop him some good questions, and tune into your dashboards on Friday, November 22, at 7:00pm EST to watch the interview before he kicks off his US tour.
Reblog at will!”
Morgan & I both follow John Mayer on Tumblr & we recently noticed that he removed all of his old posts & seems to be making his Tumblr account strictly for his own photography which really is quite captivating. So when you visit his page it certainly doesn’t look like he’s been there 4 years. Anywho, this “dashboard confessions” is coming up in just 2 days & I don’t see where they have edited his page to send in questions. There is only a “fan mail” link. Maybe we’ll find out soon, but I wanted to fill you all in just incase you’re interested. Good luck!
Oh BTW in case you didn’t know….Tumblr is a photo blog of sorts. You can find John Mayer’s Tumblr by searching for the name jhnmyr & his blog name is ONE FORTY PLUS
This just makes me chuckle! John Mayer’s myspace welcome message. It was probably even more amusing back in the days when we actually used myspace! I do think it’s making some sort of comeback though. I see a lot of musicians talking about myspace lately. The real question is: Where oh where has this John Mayer disappeared to & will we ever get him back?!?!?
Here is John Mayer’s road session #14. It also takes place in Europe. I was so excited to be able to say, “hey, I saw that!” Traveling after all is my #1 hobby!
Well I suppose traveling would be my #2, because I have always loved music so very much! Not just John Mayer, I have been obsessed with music since as long as I can remember. My very first memories as a child always revolve around music. My father used to sing me Patches by Dickie Lee. To this day it still brings tears to my eyes! Don’t it make my Brown Eyes Blue from 1977 & Copacabana from 1978 along with the Bobby Vinton my mother used to listen to all the time (hey I come from a polish family!) are the first bits of music I can remember from when I was young. From about 3 years old I have organized my memories by songs that I loved during the particular time period. I know that I should have gotten a job that somehow worked with music, but sadly, that never happened… I have no idea why I’m going on this little ramble. My deepest apologies.
