this morning Jon took Elby to school so I could get a jump start on my writing day. While he was gone I did something I’m ashamed of: I downloaded an entire John Mayer album off of Itunes. Yes, I can’t stand the guy. I know I’ve stated my hatred for him here before; his comments about women, his ego, his bad attempts at stand-up comedy where he stated having nailed actresses. More than that, he’s a hack. But that voice. It just kind of kills me. I wish I liked much cooler music. I wish I liked music that matched the edge in my personality – and sometimes I do. But mostly, I like hooky, melodic, folksy, vocals forward music. And the sound of steel string guitar goes straight to my loins.
So Jon walks in the door and says, “Jesus, I cannot believe you bought a John Mayer CD behind my back. You are so busted.” For a minute I froze. How could he have known that I just downloaded it? He wasn’t even here and I was listening to it through my headphones. Then he says, “I found the evidence in the car! How could you?” And I remember that a couple of days ago, I bought another John Mayer CD at a used CD store. So yeah, now I own TWO John freaking uncool Mayer CD’s. But have you heard the song “Comfortable”? God it’s so beautiful. It kind of reminds me of another singer I love, Dan Fogelberg….AHHHH kill me now.
