This is a tough one for me

Lord knows I loves me some John Mayer. For starters, just look at him. Even when he wasn't the sexy beast that he is now, there was definitely a certain something about him (and of course he knows this)that drives the chickies wild. Oh yes, and his songs are not bad either. My music tastes are much like my taste in film, it's all over the place and I will listen to anything at least once, mostly to back up my elaborate and elegant flair for talking smack. Yes, he is most definitely a little too on the popcorn spectrum of music at times but the boy can play his arse off on guitar. Don't hate, the man is talented. Like I have said in a previous blog about music, he has mastered voicing what slightly nerdy girls and boys who daydream too much, who fall in love too easily, who don't really want to grow up, constantly think. I am glad I discovered him later in my twenties as opposed to my last years of college. I would have been a complete mess. 3x5? That song is my last year of college....anyway, the point of this was to say that while I am officially coming out of the closet to more than just one of my more non- judgemental friends about being a fan, I completely get why there are so many people who absolutely loathe his persona and his music. He wears his heart on his sleeve and while silly girls are eating it up,(and record companies are eating up their silliness in profit) their boyfriends are getting pissed because they have to become something a little more. How hilarious was it to go the concert this summer in L.I. and see hundreds of guys sitting with their girlfriends with the serious, "kill me, kill me now" look on their faces? It was classic. He has mastered the art of being super famous and still being a regular, actually likable guy, and when he's being an "insufferable douche", we love him even more. That being said, while I resent being called "an offense to retarded primates" just because I am a JM fan, this fake blog by Gordon Ramsay was pretty damn funny. Hey, maybe douches of a feather.....

Wasn't this guy a big TV star like a week ago? Stir of Echoes 2? Was this really a movie worth a sequel? Why are straight to DVD movies automatically considered inferior products to their cinematic counterparts? Okay, that was a dumb question. But seriously, Stir of Echoes 2? The homecoming? Are subtitles necessary for crap movies? Are they a prerequisite? Stir of Echoes 2? Why?????

Corporate Excess at its Finest.

Like so many of my generation, I will be an eternal child, I eat candy much more than I should, I get extremely excited when I hear the music from "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" in some commercial that's been airing alot lately, I refuse to dress up for work, and I was raised on Disney movies. Disney movies, Disney characters, the whole hypnotic, wide-eyed, fairy dust shtick. For better or worse, it's a part of me. I can either beat it out of my subconscious with mind-numbing cynicism, or I can be aware that even though yes technically Disney is attempting to create a fascist Utopia by actually creating their own towns, the "magic" of the brand (and the thousands of no doubt underpaid employees working to create that magic) is what makes them so damn fascinating. I mean, just look at this Annie Liebovitz portrait of Roger Federer for the latest Disney campaign. The whole series is breathtaking, just like the allure of Disney. For better or worse. Here are the rest of them. I especially love Julie Andrews as the Blue Fairy. Here is also a list of what exactly Disney owns.
That's a whole lot of fairy dust.
