Magic Man

I've not really been bothered much about music or musicians ever since I've stop downloading songs.

Sure i listen to loads of Japanese and Celtic music. But thats only cause i listen to them from live streaming radio stations.

I'm as mainstream as mainstream gets now

So what i hear is what i get playing on the radio ...

Yes that means i hear 'Umbrella' every 5 minits of my life.

All i knew about John Mayer was oh that 'body is a wonderland singer' and 'Daughters' which made me cry the first time i heard it.

But after these songs being whored on the radio every 5 seconds . Kinda killed the magic.

By chance i youtubed the guy.

and i listened to all his other songs.

Credit given where credit's due. the guy has magic fingers and makes a guitar do crazy things.

Sings songs that carves out the outer layer of your skin. It leaves you bare, bleeding and wondering.....

" Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead,
If you could only . . . "

I even read his blog, tucked away in some obscure Japanese website.

Yes i'm crazy like that. When i'm interested in something i tend to bring out my inner CSI on Google

He calls himself a Font Whore. funny man

"After all the jacks are in their boxes
and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down street
footprints dressed in red"

His posts are ridiculously random which is fun to read.

It sucks when you find out celebrities have substance behind all that gloss

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Secretly we all comfort ourselves by thinking sure their famous , fabulous and burning money but at lease WE have substance.


ah sorry i got sidetracked .... i was talking about John Mayer wasn't i .

The guy is a great musician n i hope he never stops churning out beautiful melodies.

John mayer on acoustic + hot coffee + Lazy Sunday afternoon = Bliss

The volume's down
Blue lights are dancing around
And still, I can't seem to find
the quiet inside my mind
