im very tired. its 12:30 and i worked a 12.5 hour today. and will walk in to more of the same tomorrow.
i guess its the fad on this site to post about how much we hate jason mraz this week. i don’t know him enough to hate him though. i only met him once, and it was because my band and his band were playing a show together. he seemed nice enough to me, didn’t come across as a dick. i have no idea where most people i went to high school with are now. if they are successful in their careers, i’m happy for them. even if they did change. most people do change after high school. and in the entertainment industry, there is a simple marketing technique called your ‘developing your image’, or ‘branding yourself’. it’s the style that people will come to associate you with. I remember when we played that show with Mraz, he was wearing a mesh trucker hat, and selling them at the merch booth. We (my band at the time) all were a little confused and thought it was kind of cheesy. (this was right after jason had signed with the label, and wasn’t a huge rockstar yet) But 6 months later and he’s all over the place and everyone is wearing those stupid trucker hats. I’m not saying mraz coined that style, I’m just mentioning it.
anyway, i didn’t mean for this post to be about jason mraz. i could care less what clothes he’s wearing now. But I seriously hope he isn’t wearing the same style of clothes he was wearing in high school.
I think the only thing more annoying about people being overly trendy is people constantly bitching about other people being overly trendy.
okay, i just read carter’s post. you want to know a band i could really hate? OAR. I can’t stand their music. any other reason than that? not really. i just really cannot stand them. and from the musical community that i ran with on the road, that was also the general concensus from other bands that had played with them.
