"I don’t always wait for inspiration to strike to sit down and write something, I play a weekly song writing game with a bunch of nerds online and each week somebody sends me a word or a phrase and I have to turn that word or phrase into a song. Sometimes nothing inspires…

As was Details in the Fabric, my friends :)

Ohh awesome, I never knew that.
What was the phrase?

"I don’t always wait for inspiration to strike to sit down and write something, I play a weekly song writing game with a bunch of nerds online and each week somebody sends me a word or a phrase and I have to turn that word or phrase into a song. Sometimes nothing inspires like a deadline.The phrase for the week that I wrote this song [Coyotes] was "I wish the wind would blow me’" - Jason Mraz

wasn’t “the dynamo of volition” a result of a song writing game as well? i can’t recall the story exactly but i think someone gave him a random mundane phrase and he managed to turn it into a mouthful of a song. anyone remember the story behind that? 

Yes, the same game that birthed Coyotes. I believe the phrase for dynamo was ‘blind man’s bike’.

The first three pictures are where I started - Year 11 Design. I got an A for that project but I hate them now. I’d never be caught dead in any of them. I did them in paint for God’s sake.

Almost 4 years later - a successful design project that was the Cats Who Look Like Mraz 2014 Calendar. 

So I think this pretty much sums up the thoughts that go through my mind whenever anyone brings up avocados…

I’m laughing so hard I’m crying.

"Whether I am in an airport or I’m actually at the venue, I meet people every single day that have heard the music and have incorporated it into their lives somehow whether it’s at their wedding or as a song of friendship. I like that, it feels like I have a tribe all around the world that I can feel at home everywhere i go."

jason_mraz: Free Hugs.

Long distance is so hard.
I’ve lived in Australia for nearly 10 years now and it still hurts to know I’m missing out. I hate that I miss out on important landmarks in people I care about’s lives. Knowing I missed your graduation, your 18th birthday… it really hurts. And I suppose maybe I could remedy this by talking to you more often than just liking a photo but it’s just so damn hard. It took 4 years to not cry and miss home. Now it just aches.
What’s possibly even harder is when things go wrong with family and I can’t just hop over and visit to make sure everything’s okay. I have to wait for fragmented information. Which can be almost heart breaking sometimes. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve broken down because of one small piece of information.
When you have people you care about, you want to be there for them no matter what. Whether it be family, or very close best friends. It hurts knowing that I can’t be there to hug them and reassure them. That’s why I just don’t understand people who choose not to spend holidays with their families - especially if there’s no major underlying issues. I don’t have that choice, and I’d do anything to just be there. But that’s not an option. And I don’t think it’s ever going to not hurt like hell.

There isn’t one part of me that doesn’t love one part of you…

"Their partnership will become a studio album soon, composed entirely of numbers he co-wrote with the band members. He informed the audience that the album would be released in a matter of weeks.
