There are heroes among us. Some wear uniforms, some wear spandex, and some dress like you and me. And one of mine is a man named Nick Nelson. A few years ago at Seattle's Sasquatch Music festival, Mr. Nelson noticed a horrifying sight. Twenty yards away from him was the grand wizard of corny Top 40 slop, Jason Mraz. We had just suffered through a half-hour of his hokey lyrics and cookie-cutter acoustic funk. Mraz decided to wander around the crowd with a Polaroid camera in tow and take pictures with drunken girls. Noticing that something had to be done to hedge the level of douche in the crowd, Nick walked up to the musician and said, "Hey! You look like Jason Mraz!" Before Mraz could respond, Nick quipped, "That guy is a fucking douchebag." The singer-songwriter looked on in disbelief as Nick stood before him like a Chinese dissident would stand before tanks in Tiananmen Square. Bewildered, Mraz staggered off in shock as the sun's golden rays shone upon Nick, creating what I swear looked like a faint halo. If you ever meet Nick, shake his hand and thank him for his service. The world could use a few more of him.
Wow - you Mrazbots sure got your panties in a wad. Chill out. I thought this "preview" was hilarious, and well, he *is* is douche. Have you listened to his music? Recycled pop garbage makes baby jeebus cry. :(
wow dude that is the hugest piece of crap i've ever read.if you knew anything about jason mraz, you would know he is NOTHING like any cookie cutter artist at all, and for your info you can go suck his balls.i've been listening to mraz since 3rd grade and have been in love with his music for a while.your friend, hero, etc, better watch his back.if people read this they will come after him with a AK-47.you're lucky i'm not right now.
So what exactly was the point of that display of complete idiocy? You wanted to suck up to your little friend Nick? If I read an article about an artist then I usually prefer to be given some intelligent, constructive criticism, not a 'hilarious' description of some immature stunt pulled on a person trying to converse with his fans in what was probably a very special moment for them. What a waste of space this is, and you probably are. Why exactly are you a writer?
Yeah...your hero Nick is the one who sounds like a douche.
Mraz didn't stagger away because he was insulted by the words, he walked away because he was staggered into confusion over your idiocy.
Keep on keepin' on, Mraz will keep selling out concerts and enlarging his fan base, and you will continue to be the guy that no one really wants to talk to at parties.
Are you for real? Your silly little "article" tells me two things- that you've never met Jason Mraz, and that you weren't really paying attention at the show. Jason is one of the most genuine, sincere individuals out there. He spreads messages of positivity, creativity, and love. Love for your fellow man (or woman), love for the planet, love for life. His live show is incredible, how many artists do YOU know of that have built their careers mainly on their live performances. Artists whose live recordings eclipse their studio stuff in popularity. How many was that? Yeah, I thought so.
Seems to me like you're the douchebag. Congrats on that, you've actually achieved something in life. Because apparently, your writing skills aren't going to get you far.
so this was a really in-depth article with lots of useful information on what an energetic and animated live show mr mraz puts on and what positive and inspiring lyrics he writes, targetted at anyone looking for a good night out, or a good show to go and see. well, i'm thinking that's what it should have been, anyway. unfortunately, it isn't, because clearly you have been to preoccupied with your unhealthy hero worship and daily wanking (jerking off to you) over this guy with an imaginary halo to write anything coherent about this man called jason mraz. please do us all a favour and do your job instead of typing crap by the bucketload. anyone would have thought you were suffering from a case of sandy vagina syndrome.
much love,pheebs from across the pond.
