Did you follow John Mayer’s Dashboard Confessions on Tumblr 11/22

Published November 23, 2013 by ChasingJohnMayer

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 John Mayer 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.

    John

 

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!!!!!!!

Ciao lovies!

Let us know what you thought of the first installment of Dashboard Confessions from John Mayer on Tumblr!

John Mayer tour resumes

Published November 22, 2013 by ChasingJohnMayer

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)

Ciao!

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

John Mayer Q & A on Tumblr 11/22

Published November 20, 2013 by ChasingJohnMayer

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
