Confessions of a Closet JMayer Fan “Twitter Isn’t ‘Over’, I’m Over It.”
Oh what do I even say. The fact that I actually did this speaks volumes I suppose. The truth is, among other deep dark secrets that I won’t bore anyone with, I have this strange love hate relationship with John Mayer. It feels like that bad relationship everyone has in highschool. The guy you know is terrible for you. The stupid album you can’t NOT associate him with or stop listening to. Skipping class to do stupid things. All the meanwhile, you know, deep down in your little 14 year old heart that this might be the worst relationship of your life. And it’s worth it. All of it. Even the getting your heart broken part. Why? Because despite all the bullshit, you had a blast along the way.
And that is all too often missed in life.
So if your reading this Mayer, thank you. For all of it.>
And call me crazy, but I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing in the world to read scads of mentions/@replies and effectively open the floodgate of other people’s approval/disapproval. Finding out in 140 characters what a stranger has to say about you is like a mathematical equation without an established value of ‘x’. Who are you, stranger? What do you stand for? What do you like, and if it’s not me, then what does move you? What DO you look up to? Once I find that out, I’ll know how disappointed I should be.
This is where Tumblr comes in. It’s the future of social networking if your image of the future features intelligent discourse. I love reading other Tumblr users replies, because they’re thoughtful by virtue of the fact that if they’re not, they’ll bring the intellectual property value of their own blog down, and that’s a commodity on Tumblr. This post is an experiment in itself. If you want to communicate with me, open a Tumblr account, follow me, repost my blog and then add to it. I’ll follow you back. Agree or disagree, lionize or demonize, but for God’s sake, be original. You’ll have all the room in the world to do it now.
