John Mayer (x)
This is so spot on. It kinda fits in with my whole thesis, too, that young writers are much more concerned with impressing with their words than telling a story. John goes on to talk about this, too (in the context of music I suppose, but he’s really talking about all forms of expressionist artistry).
Man you can say a lot of things about John Mayer, but you can’t say he isn’t freakin smart.
