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)
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?!?!?
How cute he takes a pic with a fan’s phone! Isn’t that lovely?!?! So we’ve seen him give an autograph on stage, drink someone’s drink, & take a pic now with a fan’s phone. I’m more than slightly jealous & moderately bitter, because on top of all of those nice little things he did for other people & didn’t do for us we never even made it into one of these fucking road session videos. Now the guy who tapes them is “Patrick” & to the best of my knowledge Patrick does most of John Mayer’s PR type stuff. I’ve seen him posting instagram & twitter during the shows. He seems like kind of an asshat for lack of better word right at this particular moment. We’ve only ever seen him talking to the pretty or trashy girls. Perhaps Morgan would have had a better chance without me there. Who knows, but one thing I do know is: of all 8 shows we’ve been to none of them were in the road sessions. How does this happen? We were at some pretty rockin’ shows. This one does mention Virginia Beach in the description, but not in the title so I’m thinking there wasn’t much. Sorry, I’m feeling a bit grouchy & disappointed today…
The show in Detroit on 8-7-13 was even more awesome than the night before. Again John seemed in good spirits. Again he kept his chatting to a minimum, but he was friendly and seemed to truly appreciate his fans! I have a video snippet where he’s talking about fans posting pics on instagram and how he looks at them all. He then mentions “seeing people on the lawn,” “by the fence,” and “in the car” and it almost seems he’s pointing right at us!!!!! We did take a pic in the car!!! Could it be? Or could I be imagining it? Anyone’s guess, but I’m going to totally stick with the story that he was pointing at us, just because it makes me feel cooler! LOL
After the first show in Cleveland on 8-6-13 we were going to start heading towards Detroit for the show the following day and grab a hotel when we got tired. We ended up stopping to grab a bite to eat at a rest stop and took our time just chatting about how phenomenal the show was and all that jazz. Once we started driving again somehow we ended up getting off an exit that was nowhere near where we wanted to go. After we got turned around and headed back onto the highway is where the first of these 4 videos picks up. Sadly, we only chased and didn’t really catch anything, but it was still crazy, fun, and exciting! Morgan is a pretty new driver and I couldn’t in good conscience encourage her to drive like a maniac in unknown territory. I, on the other hand, definitely could have chased and probably caught, but I have terrible night vision and the headlights kill my eyes. So here are the videos of the highlight of the trip. The shows were fantastic, but this was really an adrenaline rush! They are all pretty short and kind of silly, but that’s the whole point of this blog!Be warned, there is some (not much) foul language in them incase you’re easily offended.
