Clip of “On The Way Home” from the forthcoming Paradise Valley album. I never like to ask you to click on a link to purchase something without a little something extra up front… This song is the book-end to “Wildfire,” which kicks the summer off. Hey, tumblr user, why not also come see a show? We’re having the time of our lives out here. It’s getting good…

Born & Raised Face To Call Home
It’s with a sense of nostalgia, longing and appreciation I repost this setlist. I attended the concert last evening at Bonner Springs. John didn’t disappoint. He was the same soulful, giddy, excited, passionate and talented JM that we’ve grown up with. It was him, in his element, doing what he loves: playing for his fans. It’s indescribable on how perfect it was to hear the album, Born & Raised, under the stars where it was intended to be heard. I can’t wait to hear what he has planned for Red Rocks.
Dearly note: I don’t give a flying FUCK who John Mayer dates (well other than Ms. Swift). People act as if they’re so blown away by him and KP hanging out, on and off again. My contention is: How is that ANY different from a relationship that we, as non-celebrities, have experienced? You and I both know that when you fall into a relationship, you sometimes get comfortable (not complacent, but feel relaxed in the relationship). They might not be the exact one for you in the long run, hell, they might not be the right person for you in the short run, but they affect you in the way that draws you to them in a positive way. So why are people shocked, or insulted, or put-off, or disrespected if John goes out with KP again? In what way does that affect your day-to-day life? Does that lessen the quality of his music? Not one bit. And that’s the beauty… Even if JM was writing specifically about a person, which I don’t doubt might be the case (you have to get inspiration and emotions from somewhere), a listener can relate it to whatever situation they’ve been through, applicable or not.
Have some awareness, please. Some people are ready to throw in the proverbial towel in terms of their support of John because of the people he dates? Has that ruined your week? Has that someway or another made him disingenuous because he has chosen to see/date/court/spend time with a person whom you don’t know personally or intimately? Has that, in some Earth shattering way, made the moments when you’ve connected with his music any less valuable? Please remember that you’ve liked John for a reason. Maybe not because of what he does when he is on his free time, or what he does when he is in the studio, but because of the connection you felt with his MUSIC. That’s all.
Sometimes I feel like I’m taking crazy pills here!
New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised “plus”… A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013. I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful. See you all soon. And thanks for the warm welcome back to the stage. Getting back on it a little at a time.
He was rehearsing for a play in a studio space I was dancing at all week. I walked past him on my way to the studio and we casually said hello and asked how each other were. (I’m short of breath and sweating).
“Oh, I’m fine and tired!”, I respond. He…
Live in every moment, capitalize on every opportunity. You inspire me.
Last thing, I’m not into the whole babysitting bit anymore either. Being 23, we’ve had plenty of years under our belt of hard drinking. I don’t mind getting sloppy, I appreciate losing my head once and a while. But I’m not into dealing with others’ stupidity…
At this moment, I feel like the only adult in a party of preschoolers. Am I too “old” for my age? Do I take myself too seriously? Or am I just a snob that thinks immature antics are below me?
I run into this problem too often….
Since my Twitter and Facebook accounts are infiltrated with people I know with immediate connection to myself, I feel like the best way to express myself is through random blog posts. The first one of which is following after this…
