Jason’s Super Bowl Song for the Rest of Us

Don’t know which teams are in the Superbowl this year? (Super Bowl? Two words? I don’t care.) Did you not even know the game was this weekend? Then this song’s for you. It was in Jason’s 2/5/2006 podcast, available for free on iTunes. If you don’t have iTunes, then you can find it elsewhere.

I Want My House Back 

I just want my fucking house back
Free me from this football hell
And my kitchen is full of snacks
All I want is a place to smoke my crack
Without having to hide from the public
Always sneaking off in the back
Yeah, all i want is a place to park my car
Without having to use the street
To wanna keep it safe in my garage
Yeah all I want is a place that I can hide in
Where I can open up my slip and slide
Where I can run, where I can take a dive

Cuz I am home
Is where my heart is
Yeah home is where I belong
Yeah home is the best place to take a seat
Home cooked meal is what I wanna eat
On my own placemat
I just want my fucking house back
I just want my fucking house back
With time to rest my dogs
And plenty more time to find the cat
Yeah all I want is a day to do the laundry
But that’s a bit of a quandary
Cuz I gots no house to help me
Yeah all i want is a place to keep things quiet
So I can play Scrabble in the nude
Don’t knock it untill you’ve tried it
Yea all I want is a chance to scratch the floor
Cuz I could rearrange my furniture
In hopes to block the door

Cuz I be home
Is where my heart is
Home is where I belong
Home is the best place to take a nap
Only place on earth that feels safe to crap
Home is what I want and that’s a fact
I just want my fucking house back

Rah rah rah. Go Mraz!

Where to Find “Good Orderly Direction”?

It’s not on Jason’s myspace page anymore, but it’s still out there. You just have to know where to look.

Also notable is that Mraz is no longer listing himself as zydeco / bluegrass or whatever the last musical combination was. Now he’s: Concrete / Hyphy / Melodramatic Popular Song

Yeah. That’s pretty much how I describe him to friends 🙂

Jason Mraz Sings for Friends and Firemen

Jason Mraz Fire Relief album Jason Mraz (he’s so swell) has contributed to the San Diego 2007 Fire Relief album with his tune, “Silent Love Song” (I almost typed it as “Silent Love Snog” which would be both inaccurate and impossible to pull off.) The album also features some of our other friends, including Bushwalla, Gregory Page, and Tristan Prettyman. It’s good music for a good cause, so hop on over and pre-order it today. Or try to. The link didn’t work the last time I was there, but I’m sure they’re working on it.

Spelling Mistakes From Heaven

I was just cruising through the list of search terms and (right kind of) phrases people have used to get here in the past week. This gem stood out from the pack:

“How much prophet do pet stores make?”

An excellent question. I’d love to hear some equally excellent and ridiculous answers. Meanwhile, I’m going to go research ways to make this blog more prophetable.

A Mraz-Flavored Holiday

Boston skyline

I’m back. I was away, in case you didn’t know, but then I came back from away, and now I’m here.

I went to Florida and saw a friend and her kids, then I went to Boston and saw another friend and his new kid, and another friend’s new boyfriend, and then some friends who didn’t have anyone new to show off, but who I was very glad to see all the same. It was cold in Boston but I didn’t mind because it made me nostalgic for all those winters I spent there, playing in the snow and walking through the Common when it was covered in white fluff. Ah, the good ol’ days.

I missed my blog while I was gone, but I always felt like Mraz was nearby. Not, like, in a creepy way. Just in spirit. My last night there, my friend, Justin, and I went into the bar at the Omni Parker House for chowder and Boston creme pie (they invented it there, don’tcha know), and just as we sat down and shook some of the chill off us, “Wordplay” came on over the speakers, so we got to relax and have a round of drinks with Mr. A-Z. It was a pretty perfect moment in a trip full of excellent ones.

Justin finally got his passport last month, so I hope my next trip with him is an exotic one. Recommendations?

I don’t know which way my brain is going,

Do Your Mouth Exercises

I once wrote that Jason Mraz is phenomenal in bed. Not based on any real evidence I had, but just on the way he moves and soothes on stage, and all the things he can get his tongue and lips and other oral muscles to do. Here’s even more proof of that:

Hot stuff, right? I wish I could make foreign languages sound that sexy.
