John Mayer is offering insight on a video on TMZ.com that featured ‘Avatar’ director James Cameron involved in a verbal scuffle with an autograph reseller confronted him for a signature at LAX. The singer songwriter explained on his tumblr.com blog:
While I can’t speak to what happened before the segment of video on TMZ, I can tell you that the man in the tiny hat with the ‘Avatar’ poster had probably engaged with Cameron from at least 50 paces before the automatic doors. That’s how it goes down; they walk alongside you. They bark requests at you, trying to get your pulse to quicken. If you give in and sign, the guy with the poster gets to sell it and make a few bucks. If you don’t give in, as it gets harder to acquiesce with each successive yelp, then the stench of cash really starts to waft in as Video Camera Guy gets the goods while you explain in no uncertain terms to Obnoxious E-bay Poster Guy that he’s not going to get what he’s asking for tonight.
John Mayer: The 2000s Were The Dumbest Decade In Recorded History
December 20, 2009 – John Mayer shared his thoughts on the decade as it prepares to come to a close to his Twitter followers (@johncmayer) earlier today, unimpressed with the past 10 years. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Let me be the first to say it: the 2000s was the dumbest decade in recorded history.
You may not appreciate it now, but in the next 2-4 years the true dumbness of the decade will age like a fine, insipid wine.
Dumb: “It’s like a car crash, you can’t look away,” a crude attempt at justifying having terrible tastes in entertainment.
Dumb: “Epic fail,” a phrase used to make fun of someone’s failed attempts, written by people living in their parents’ basements.
I’ll buy that for a dollar! RT @shyunatown agrrreed ; 2000’s was an era where people didn’t know what do with themselves
Dumb: “Just Saying.” A phrase meant to divorce one’s self from responsibility for having a cheap laugh at someone’s expense.
“Hot mess,” “train wreck,” cutesy combined celebrity couple names, “TMI,” Feigned shock, Sentences that begin with “bitch.”
Dumb: “I’ll give you that,” used to reluctantly agree with someone by making it sound as if it’s at the user’s great expense.
2010s: being safe and happy, learning, showing grace to others while tending to our own betterment, and enjoying life. FIN. XO.
