I’ve always said that the world’s most boring musician is John Mayer and now the accommodating fellow has gone and proven my point. He’s made a film about his average day during a tour. From the looks of this film he could be attending a corporate seminar to give a PowerPoint presentation. Shiny hotel fixtures and breakfast buffets laid out in one’s room certainly must go far toward making exciting music. And look! Sneakers! He’s wearing sneakers! How charmingly boyish. And he finishes the film with ‘Fin.’ Just like the French do! Gosh! Fin! And look at that audience of his! My goodness! They look like they’re at a Bed Bath & Beyond shopping for a new duvet cover.
I think the best shot in the movie is the elevator man opening the doors and ushering Mr. Mayor out into the lobby. But John Mayer should stay in the elevator. And play there.
Every once in a while I like to post something I hate. It keeps things real.
