I have a working compass for one city alone. Everywhere else, I'm perpetually lost. However, this tends to lend itself well for stories, meeting new people and long walks.

    I just realized I had this mp3, and it’s a really quiet, clean version of Something’s Missing In Your Atmosphere, which is heaven. It’s very seamless; if I didn’t know about the two songs, I’d probably think this is a song unto its own — I’d be okay with this, by the way. You can probably mix Too Legit To Quit with In Your Atmosphere and I’d still be in love with it, but that’s another story.

    Naturally, like any JM enthusiast with a lot of time on his or her hands (or love, a lot of love for JM, that sounds better), I looked up different performances of SMIYA online. Every version is unique, it’s amazing what he does with two (or three, as is the case in the last video) songs; you can listen to them one after the other and feel like you’ve heard completely different tunes. So if you’re in the mood (and how can you not be):

    [x] On His Own Live In LA 2008
    [x] Sydney Entertainment Centre May 2010 
    [x] Birmingham February 2010
    [x] Mayercraft 2008

    P.S. I’ve developed an unnecessarily complex way of compressing an mp3 but it’s just that I love this song so much to care.

    This is kind of intense levels of fandom and I’m way into it.

    There’s this feeling… it is a combination of nausea and that feeling when you’re on a roller-coaster and you’ve just crested the top and now you’re hurtling downwards. That feeling. Those feelings. Oh, and a slight headache. It floods over me when I know I’ve lost someone. I hate that feeling.

    John probably knows it. Hey, maybe you do too. And this was a downer moment for your Sunday night. So sorry!

  • for Christmas maybe…

    I would love to have a John Mayer album where he did mostly acoustic stuff - or just a couple guitars and drums - and if it was of music we haven’t heard… awesome. It could be covers or entirely new. Either way - I need some John Mayer and if he threw out the studio for a bit, I think it could be a nice breath of fresh air. Not that his other albums are bad - not at all - but a change would be nice. It’s like being at a cafe show, but not really. 

    Intimate, you know? 

  • "Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type…I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!"
