I didn’t find out about this until the day after it happened because it wasn’t posted on Facebook until around 6:30 p.m., but everything is on YouTube now, so it doesn’t really matter if you caught it live or not.
God bless technology.
This is not Jason’s first time on Letterman, but Dave still can’t pronounce his last name. Sigh.
No, I’m not trying to bring down the Mraz government à la David Tennant in pyjamas. (And isn’t that just the best episode? He looks sexy and powerful, but cozy and a little tousled at the same time. All rude and not ginger, pressing buttons and smiling and then getting all serious with his, “no second chances” mean face. Love it.)
I just mean that our Mraz is looking a wee bit worn. Gaunt, even. He’s starting to more closely resemble his album cover, all angles and cheekbones and hat. I hope he can squeeze some R&R into his crazy tour schedule.
If you didn’t see Letterman last night, Jason and the band performed “I’m Yours”. It was more like the tour version than the album version, which I appreciated. No need to dumb things down for people who have only heard one version of the song and don’t know that it’s evolved over the past, what, three years?
The clip should pop up on YouTube soon enough. Until then, go watch Joss Whedon’s new Internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, or try to anyway. It’s having some technical difficulties right now, but I’m sure it’s worth the wait: www.drhorrible.com
Wow. Mraz, David Tennant, and Joss Whedon, all in one post. That’s like the holy trinity of geek entertainment or something.
Once more with feeling,
Jason is the musical guest on Letterman tonight, so plan to stay up late or set your recording device of choice.
Tomorrow is Jason’s secret Myspace show in Hartford, CT at the Webster Underground. Tickets are free, but space is limited, and I’m going to go out on a very safe limb and say that if you aren’t in line a good 10 to 12 hours before doors open at 8pm, you aren’t going to get in.
If someone who does get in wants to report back to the group, I’d love to hear details!
