Despite having ample time to plan, won’t make it down to Inglewood tonight to see John perform.

I felt a little better about this when I remembered I checked off seeing Mayer perform live years ago.  Playing my all time favorite song in fact, at Mike’s funeral.  Also the last time I recall having a full, uncontrollable, both nostrils running cry.

(Hm. Maybe I shouldn’t have typed that out loud.  Oh well…)

To my friends heading to the Forum, have fun for me.

To everyone else, enjoy!

The new John Mayer single feels like a nice throwback to his best easy listening records.

But more importantly…

A dance break in the video?!?

LOL…

Enjoy…

A lot on my mind.  I’ll be locked and loaded next Sunday.

Let’s ease into this week gently though…

Enjoy!

 

 

Singer John Mayer arrives at the 55th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles

Made it through another week.  That’s a good jumping off point for whatever comes next.

So it’s the weekend.  Speaking of, have you heard the new John Mayer?

Enjoy!

Blues into the weekend.

Have a good one everybody.

Not even a week.

I had something nice and upbeat to start the weekend, but about an hour before I got here I heard about Nice.  And the timeline seems to be less than thrilled with the latest Town Hall (but I expected that).

So Soapbox Sunday will be on in a couple days.  In the meantime, my wish for you this weekend is to take care of yourself, celebrate your loved ones, and endure.

Enjoy.

I hate to see you cry
Laying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go the way, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
But then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go the way, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good

I know it’s good

 

Kanye-West

Sometime last week:

THE HOMIE: Yo, did you know about this John Mayer/Kanye West collaboration?

ME: That’s not possible.  There’s no way that would have slipped under my radar.

THE HOMIE: Check it out.

ME: (not doubting the Homie, but also thinking it must not have been that great if I’m just now hearing about it) I’ll get to it.

ME: (a few hours later, pressing Play…)

Enjoy!

I can’t win this one.

Spent a good couple months learning this song, finding great cover versions, but my best is average.

I’m a good enough singer to not bring your musical to a complete halt, and blend in the background. Sure.

Can I entertain you on karoake nights? Definitely.

But (by my standards) am I a true singer?  No, not at all.

You win this beef Mayer.  I still reserve the right to write my best ‘heartbreak’ sequences to your better songs.

(spitting on the ground as I walk this one off…)

The rest of you, enjoy!
