Jason and his Taylor T5. Only.
This picture is from a magazine from years ago. In the past year he's been looking very trim and buff, the result of his gym workouts, yoga and raw food diet thingy that's he's been on for some time I guess. The cute little boy has grown out from his cute puppy look and boy, does the man look good or what. The scruffy look also works, sometimes :). Ah, when you're cool you're cool.
I wanted to have this post about his guitars actually. He usually plays the Taylor 614ce and 914ce. I am sure he has his ukeleles as well.
Oh this pic is distracting so this post ends here :) la la la..
I might just have yet another aptly-timed inspiration from Jason.
His latest post opens with this quote from Bertrand Russell:
The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
I can't agree more. Enjoy then!

My happy happy feet song for the weekend from JM, No Stopping Us.
Am loving this song, makes two-left-feet-me feel like like dancing. Now that would be a scary sight! ;P
"Can I get an amen?"
"Can I really hear an amen?"
"Can I get just one more amen now?"
What else I can get now, what would you ask for...
"Can I get some LOOOVE?"

Missed out posting yesterday.
My sister told me last night she saw a JM tee bundled together with JM's WSWDWST Ltd Ed at Speedy. RM40. Shrigley, white on black.
Should I get it? Maybe I check it out first before making that dent in my purse.
Messy feelings today, need an uplifting tune from Jason.
Like, right now.

I finally have JM on my phone!
Music in the palm of my hand :) after 2 days of attempting.
Today I saw a hilarious JM TV adv for Real Magic TV, on Youtube. Not a real adv, just a silly one they put together. Ha ha.
I hope I can find the 'soft rock' video.
Still engrossed with 1000 Things. First song I played from my phone just now :)

Something not so usual happened today.
I didn't get to have my daily dose of Jason until 1630 hrs just now.
*what? my ears are complaining now; where's Jason today?*
Why? I don't really know, though a few times I had my earphones already in my ears I had to get up and do something and forgot to put it on when I came back.
I usually have Jason playing on repeat loop from 9 am onwards.
Anyway, that's okay. I am plugged in to TNA now.
Seriously liking Dramatic Mujer. Jason singing Spanish is so sexay.
Oh. Did I mention I thought of and tinkered with my JM 'project' yesterday? No?
Probably got too excited with the mild 'heart attack' induced by the vision of a double whammy of Jason and Eddie.
Anyway, I will only reveal if it materialises. Till then, it's TOP SECRET :)!

A lovely song. Not as bleak as Plane. Again, a simple stark black and white video.
Apparently Jason sang the soprano part as well. I thought he had a guest singer or something. However, some fans have seen him perform it live so that's true then.
My list of favourite Jason songs is becoming harder and harder to compile, so I decided I won't have one. I love all his songs, and various versions of each song.
Sometimes it's nice to not make a choice :).

He sounds so achingly clear and crisp - this man wears his emotions in his voice. The high notes at the end are fantastic.
This simple 'video' with the black background is excellent to showcase just Jason's voice, and to not get distracted by his images.
And I like very much the tinkling piano bits and the part where he goes 'damn, you' :)

This tour took place March-April last year across the USA. The concert at Highline Ballroom, NYC is available on DVD, bundled in the WSWDWST Limited Edition. Which I got for myself (and Superfriend) after Jason's concert in KL last month.
Withdrawal symptoms after a month? Gawd. I am sad, ain't I? I wonder if he'll be at Singfest this year. His schedule does look very packed for the next few months. And one can only drool about the special midnight concert in Las Vegas this coming May 9th (one month from now!), featuring James Morrison. That, of course, is already sold out. Awesomely, deliciously droolworthy concert indeed.
This is the closest to a concert that I can get at this moment. Gonna watch the DVD until I get sick of it.
As if that is ever going to happen :)

I first got to know Jason through You and I Both many many years ago. Saw him on TV (MTV?) and I thought : very cool song, funny video (bank "heist", in his very 70's light blue suit), what a cute guy.
The verse -
- was stuck to and played in my head like a broken record.
Later, came The Remedy. In 2005, from his second album, Geek in the Pink and Wordplay.
They didn't even sell his album here locally then. Little did I know that he had other fantastic songs on the 2 albums. And that he toured extensively, performing live with the band; without; and sometimes with only Toca. These I discovered much later through Youtube and various sites discussing the man and his music.
I'm Yours introduced Jason to the rest of the world last year, and the rest, as the saying goes, is history. He should've gotten that Grammy instead of Mayer.
Live in EBS Space, Korea, accompanied by Toca. Circa July 2006 (?). Wish they have this performance as a live album.
So, this song holds a special place in my archive. Still loving it to this date.

This is one of Jason's songs that I listen to the most. Two of my favourite videos.
Solo. Live at Mix 106.5 Showcase, San Jose, April 2008.
Live at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Dec 2008. With orchestra. Jason apparently was rather unwell that evening.
I love the melody, lyrics, everything and I'd like to think of this as my song.
I think it describes me sometimes. Biased, with insecurities and always submerged in contradictions.
Haha, yes I can perasan all I want here :P

This blog is dedicated to everything and anything Jason.
Mraz - that is.
So my other blog can be a little bit less-indicative of an obsession-fixation with the Geek :)
love, love, love,
