Words

OK I am just going to say this without any kind of disclaimer.

I really, really like John Mayer.

(pause)

Yeah I can't seem to just let that stand, I feel the need to justify that he's a really great musician and your mom would love him but he's still plenty sexy, his blog is really funny and he's dating one of the actresses from "Friday Night Lights" so really, what's not to love?

Mr. Mayer has a free video on iTunes right now for his new song "Say" and I'm pretty much in love with it. It reiterates one of the best things my mother ever told me which is, "no harm will ever come from being honest about the way you feel". Whether it's an apology, or a worry, or a declaration of feelings, my experience is that feelings genuinely expressed can change everything. I had a discussion with some of my siblings Saturday night that was one of the most tender, heartfelt chats I've ever had and it all started because someone was brave enough to start talking.

So go download the video-even if you hate the song, you might still want to kiss John Mayer on the lips by the end.

John Mayer is hilarious. He had a TV show on VH1 a few years ago called John Mayer Has a TV Show that was hilarious. I think there was only one episode but the guest was Trick Daddy. Yes THE Trick Daddy. It was gold Jerry. Gold.

ukqNot to mention that he is an amazing guitar player - the youngest to appear at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival with artists like Buddy Guy and Steve Vai and Clapton. No other guitar players even close to his age were there. No disclaimers necessary.
