Jason Mraz Joins the Twitterati

mraz_twitter1Yes, you can start finding out where Jason is during the day, what he’s eating, how he’s feeling and when he’s getting his nails done (acrylics, FYI) by following him on Twitter, kind of.

He’s not writing his own tweets, but someone on his tour is doing it in his name, with his blessing.

For completely selfish reasons, I kind of hope this is short lived. The time demands of social networking stresses me out. (And “online sociability fatigue” is a real thing, so it’s not just me being anti-technology. I work for a dot com and manage two blogs for god’s sake. Isn’t that enough? Damn you Twitter and your minute-by-minute updates!)

I just don’t have enough hours in the day to keep up with all of it, especially when the tweets include links to photos, movies and articles that I won’t be able to help but look at. I can see myself getting lost in the Mraz maze of posts and links and forgetting that I’m supposed to be working.

Plus, I don’t know if I want that much backstage info on Jason. I like that his private life is mostly private, and that our shared time with him happens when he’s on stage.

Still, it can be fun, and already Twitter has pointed us to some things I never would have found on my own, like this YouTube clip from Anya Marina, Jason’s opening act.

And now, back to work…


Jason Mraz: Big Grammy Loser

Jason and Mama Mraz

It’s cool though, right? I mean, the fact he even got nominated blew me away, and he got some decent screen time and his mom seemed happy to be there. He looked really tan and healthy too, which is good since he’s about to start touring like a crazed man again.

And John Mayer twittered Jason a compliment. At least I think it’s a compliment. You just never know with John Mayer, and sarcasm is really hard to express in twitter form:

Best Pop Male Vocal!! I wanna share it with Mraz. His is a really special performance. Hands are shaking, about to play some R and B!!

I’m sure there’s more to write about last night, but I can’t really move my neck right now and typing is killing me. Should be a good day at work.
