Time to Get Out the Jason Mraz Holiday Video

I’ve been completely MIA on this blog this year, but come Christmas time, I get all nostalgic for the holiday video Jason made for us a couple of years ago.

In case you missed it the last two holidays, or even if you watched it a couple dozen times last December, please take a moment to enjoy Jason’s holiday message. It’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen him do. And that’s saying something.

P.S. – It’s not quite as good as closed captioning, but if you want to have a sing along with friends, here are the words/lyrics to Jason’s Merry Holidays video/song.

Hi, and merry, jolly times. I’m Jason Mraz.

You know, as an international traveler, I have a really special opportunity to give unique gifts this season.

For instance, for my elderly acquaintances, I give the gift of life, by paying for their medication, cheaply, in foreign countries.

My sister’s going to love these Ritz-Carlton towels, and slippers.

Mom loves lotion and soaps.

For dad, it’s another year’s subscription to Sky Mall.

For my brother, I just got myself this new iPod. Why don’t you join me in the singing of this timeless Christmas classic?

Happy Christmas time

Happy Christ-mas time

What an awesome time of year

To celebrate Christmas cheer

Wherever you go

You may find lots of snow

Unless you’re livin’ in the southern hemisphere

Merry holidays

Merry cou-ple of days

What a wintery way to say

I’m not workin’

It’s a time for you to be you

And a time to go and see how grandma’s doin’

And maybe she’ll have some money too

And oh yeah, the presents!

The way they overflow

from the belly of the Christmas tree

And oh ho ho ho ho, here comes Santa

To say the very best things in life

You can have for free

Everybody, put your balls into it!

Merry holidays

Merry couple of days

Make it a Nat-King-Bing-Crosby-Charles-Dickensy kind of thing

So whatever you’re planning on giving this holiday season, give from the heart. But most importantly, make sure you have a merry couple of days.

Jason Mraz Takes Over Hulu.com

It’s one thing to see the little notice on Facebook that, “Now you can watch Jason Mraz on Hulu.com! Check out Jason’s Hulu page, where you’ll find all of Jason’s music videos as well as live performances and behind-the-scenes clips.”

It’s another thing to settle in for my lunchtime episode of “Arrested Development” and see this when I get to Hulu:

Mraz on Hulu

Not the best picture I’ve ever seen of him, but it’s still pretty cool that he’s a big enough name to be promoted alongside episodes of “Human Target” and “Modern Family”.

It’s also nice to have so many video clips in one place. It doesn’t have “Yoga to Go” or his “Vs.” tour videos or any of the little homemade videos he’s done and posted on his blog, but it’s a start.

I don’t remember the last time I watched the video for “Remedy”. Who is that young kid in the trucker hat? And, oh my, just look at all those roosters.

This is a dangerous liason,

Jason Mraz Writes a Song of Love

It sounds like a Valentine’s Day promo, but it’s much cooler than that. The Songs of Love foundation asks musicians to write songs for seriously ill children. Jason’s song was written for a 13-year-old cancer patient and is the 20,000th song produced by the charity, which is really impressive.

You can see the video for Jason’s song, but first, go and vote for this charity to get a big grant so they can help even more kids in need.

After you do that, vote for something not quite as important. Jason is going to put out a new shirt for… now’s the time for it… Valentine’s Day! I don’t think I’d wear any of the proposed designs (Doves in a 69, one eating the other? Weird.), but maybe one of them is your style.

I do love the votemraz.com URL. Hopefully they can use that for other events in the future.

Jason Mraz Does Yooo-gah

This is just so much better than most of the stuff on Saturday Night Live. Next time Jason gets to be the musical guest, can he do some skits too? Pretty please?

Mraz does some freestyle yoga.
