John Mayer for President

OK, so I’ve always like John Mayer’s music, but didn’t really think much more of him until I saw him in concert at the Red Rocks in Denver.

He was, in a word: amazing.

The instant he ripped his guitar off and held it up with one-hand, playing it one-handed, I was sold for life. Love the guy! And I’m of course headed to a concert of his this year. But why choose him over all the other *cough* qualified candidates?

I occasionally check out the John Mayer blog now and again, and I was particularly fond of a recent entry. I’ll post an excerpt below, but if you love the Goonies like me and feel the same way, you should give the rest of it a read (it’s short).

What happened to the better part of a generation that once walked out of their local theater rooting for the Mikeys and Chunks and Datas of the world? They’ve turned into Troys. Troys who can’t accept the differences in others and condemn the things they don’t understand. Finger-pointing, ****-talking Troys.

I think he’s got a major point. Where have all the goonies gone?
