John Mayer’s latest blog post at Johnmayer.com:
26 January 2009 @ 3:59PM
I don’t want a developed web site right now. I’m not a developed artist. I mean, I was. three times now.
But to evolve you have to dismantle, and that means accepting the idea that nothing you’ve created in the past matters anymore, except that it brought you here.
To pick up your new marching orders.
I want to use a blog to truly tell you who I am.
I don’t want to link to someone else’s culture,
like a titanium dinette set with chairs that look like little tables and a table that looks like a giant chair.
That says nothing about me that I want you to know.
I want you to learn about me through the process of writing, recording and producing my fourth album.
I want to host an Open House for bright things and dark things, for lame jokes and sad chords, and for melodies that lift me off the ground.
I want to be less fun at parties, and find it hard to meet new people.
I want to be happier in the house than out of it.
I want to be fearless and remember not to compromise a thing, until the work is done and it’s time to shorten it for the radio.
I want to be myself and shut the rest out. Except for the people I love. (This means you.)
Two things I’ll be acknowledging more from now on…
2.I am lucky.
I’m writing my Battle Studies.
And this time you’re coming with me.
With this blog post, I can’t tell if I like John Mayer, or if I think he is a toolbag. Perhaps a bit of both. I’m just glad he’s making a new album, because I do enjoy his music a lot, oh and that he’s going to have a friggin variety show!??!!? “John Mayer has a TV Show” was pretty funny.
