Lately We're Running Out Of Time, Aren't We?

There was one time somewhere when I heard this song played in a shop ... when I realised it was Jason's voice I tried to recall the title of the song but I could not as I was not familiar with it at that time.

Then much later on Youtube I saw the video where he was busking in France, and I went .. "aaahhh, that's the one... Clockwatching!"

I think he looks really good in this video. Smokinn' .. :)

"Lady, dreamer, you might be the soundest sleeper,
Tonight, sleep tight, and build your nest upon my shoulder"

Who Am I To Say, This Situation Isn't Great?

This song is a firm favourite (but of course).

Credit : cuique. A great live album.

I was going through some videos today by other singers, and there was one comment on how listening to certain artistes give you goosebumps, while others don't. Some songs ... touch you. (Does that even sound right?) A frequency theory?

What's that called - Having soul? Soulful? Full of feelings?

Jason is one of them rare ones. I am not able to describe clearly in words how his songs make me feel. They just ... speak to me. The words, the melody, the performance, everything.

I don't know why and how others can compare him to John Mayer or Jack Johnson or whomever. Oh, I should stop trying to defend him. He does not need me to do that. His music will stand for itself, speak for itself.

To each his own. Whatever moves you, baby. For me it's him.

'Jason, Thank You Very Much for Jumping In Here'

Glad I stayed up last night entertaining my thoughts, cos I saw Jason perform (with Colbie) on Letterman!

Wow. I so underestimated Astro... I thought they'd screen it here in a few weeks time, looks like it's within the same week (22nd there, 24th here). Must remember this next time.

"Through the years we all will be together,
if the fates allow....
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough..."

Jason mentioned in his blog that Colbie called him just that morning (since he was in NYC) to fill in as her regular guitarist couldn't make it for the show. How cool is that? What a good friend Jason is :) Colbie must love him to bits, as we do. And she told him to take the third verse.

Love their rendition of HYAMLC; not crazy with his hair/fringe like that yet still cute though; and the shirt! Oh my, this is my first time seeing him perform in such a proper looking buttoned up long sleeved shirt.

I just noticed that Colbie kept looking at Jason a few times throughout the song but our man has his eyes closed too intensely concentrating to realise. Haha! By the way, if you listen carefully Colbie sings 'christmas' as if it were 'christmice'. Style? Still lovely singing though.

And thank you Mr Cameraman for focusing on our man and his guitar.

He Sings A Love Song, As We Go Along...

My favourite Christmas carol (a joint-favourite, alongside 'O Holy Night') sung by my favourite man (a joint-favourite, alongside Fernando Torres ;D )

Various versions are available on Youtube, so go spoil and entertain yourselves with some Mraz goodness.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

"We'll face unafraid, the plans that we made,
Walking in a winter wonderland.."

Jason - A Sex Icon?

"Maybe she spends too much time on Perez Hilton you know, that's where my topless shots go.."

Jason you are a funny, funny man!

Every Sprout is a Route

My Wonderwall.

Listening to and watching JM at the Highline Ballroom NYC, rap-improv for The Remedy :

Well in the not too distant time ahead
There is a way to get it done without leaving your bed
There is a way to go to work by using your head
It is a quirk of the network of mind's intent
Just visualize anything that you want
Close your eyes, bring it up to the front
And realise every sprout is a route
To the power of how
The power of now
The power to me is like my own preamble
I'm known to ramble wearing only my sandals
My declaration is warm so handle it
Desperation is a mambo-dancing....!

Go On Be Happy Now, Please Be Happy Now...

Another one from Live on Earth - The Boy is Gone - thanks to Razindiego:

I love the backdrop for his stage. Is that the Japanese tidal wave painting?

And Tuty found the DVD-CD combo for Live on Earth! Woohoo!!!!! *jumps and cartwheels*

Altogether now : "Oh the wait was so worth it..."

And The Bright Lights Turn to Night ...

Ha ha ha!

Jason's latest blogpost made me laugh.

The boy is so cute, and most importantly, so talented on the guitar ukelele. I am sure he'll work on the singing as he grows :)

And today, sailing through Youtube, I found this:

This guy - Sam Tsui - has got very healthy lungs.

All I Want for Christmas

Santa Baby,

Since I have been really really good this year, can you get Jason to come back for concerts in this part of the world some time next year? Soon?

I am sure I am not the only one waiting.

Thank you.

p.s. Oh, and world peace, no war, green the planet and all that, too.

From JM's FF5000.

Merry Christmas,

This Life is But A Dream...

I think it's high time for a re-listen to Live High.

Got to celebrate the malleable reality.

Carbon Atom Girl needs a balm for her soul.

Another one from Live on Earth :

Love love love the groovy Traveler intro.

This reminds me of his concert. Waiting for whenever it is that he makes it to this part of the world. Hey J, when?

I've fixed it up and made it my ring tone :), making it all mine.

Can You Hear Me, I'm Talking To You

There was a Jason moment when I was in Bario.

It was 'Lucky' on someone's ringtone.



Jason, high up in the Kelabit Highlands.
