Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Wondering about J.M.'s new album

I've been wondering what to blog about again for some time. Then I noticed an e-mail about John Mayer's new album that just came out so I thought I'd blog about that. If any of you are fans than you might like this video of him singing "In Your Atmosphere."
I remember hearing his music, not realizing it was him and I liked it. So, I happened upon him late one night singing for a PBS program called SoundStage. It was great because they had him performing his songs and also had clips about how he'd come up with some of them. I thought he was quite interesting and I'm always fascinated with singers who write a lot of their own songs like he does. It's the writer in me - I just like to hear about how someone comes up with ideas and what their process is like for writing. Plus, I've always dreamed of writing songs as well so I'm sure that has something to do with all of that.
I'm not sure if I'll actually buy the album and I actually don't have any of his albums yet because I keep thinking that I'm going to get an i-pod or mp3 type device and load it up then. Someday...I hope for that but for now I can't justify it. Well, anyway, I'm still a fan of John Mayer. His style reminds me a little it about Chris Isaak whose music I used to like in '89. Well, actually I think Chris Isaak had just a one song I liked but I would listen to it over and over on my Walkman radio at night. Anyway, that just brings back memories.

I totally love John Mayer too. Isaac like Chris Isaak as well. He was a little old for me to know his stuff but Isaac has definately introduced him into our repertoire. So Chris is fun to listen to as well. As for my memory about you goes...I remember going over to your house late at night after the kids were in bed and working on my "date book" and scrapbooking to wee hours in the morning. We were up so late. It was so much fun! Loved our lunches. And I still love my muffin tins you gave me. I use them everytime I make banana bread. I just used them this morning...mmm!
