"@marchelle_anne: "I don’t know about you but I think we need bandaids with @jason_mraz’s face on them. That would make me feel so much better about an injury."

Let’s join together and Spread YES!

rjthecunning:

Hey everyone! So, I think it’d be a rad idea if we joined together to create a cover video in honor of “YES!” and #SpreadYES!

I was thinking we’d cover “Back to the Earth,” because it’s fun, upbeat, catchy, and it unifies everyone around the world!

If you’d like to be involved, send me a message on Tumblr, or shoot me an email at RJtheCunning@gmail.com.

Stay #yessed!

Signal boost ^^^^

On this lovely Sunday morning, I chose to start my day with the wonderful new album from Jason Mraz ‘Yes’.

The album is very much courtesy of its’ namesake. ‘Yes’ is a victory. ‘Yes’ is attacking your day with enthusiasm and an everlasting smile. ‘Yes’ is passing that smile on to all the people around you. ‘Yes’ is about shining your light on everything around you.

As I sat to write this thought with a nice, hot cup of coffee on a chilly Sunday morning in Adelaide, I can’t help but smile. The album sits so well in to my day. It feels like it was meant to be.

I have read many thoughts on the simplicity of the album and how many have interpreted that as being boring. On the contrary, I’d say the word they’re looking for is ‘sophisticated’. It is a smart, methodical, raw and very human album. It’s about a real, tangible life that you can relate to in one way or another. It so clearly shows the journey of Jason Mraz from where he started, all the way through to where he is now. One could almost say he’s come full circle, and in some degree he has, but, I would more likely say he’s come full circle to an alternative way of living. This album feels like the start of a brand new adventure. And, safe to say if it’s an adventure with his wonderful co-writers, Raining Jane, it’s sure going to be a fun one.

Jason Mraz has called this his first acoustic album, but it doesn’t sound like your typical acoustic album. This is due in part to the way that Mraz and the wonderful ladies of Raining Jane fit together. This album is a perfect blend of wholesome and vibrant harmonies that fit so well with the wonderful melodies that Jason is known for.

There’s no denying the genius of Mraz, but for me the biggest victory of this album is how under-produced it sounds. Not once have I been disappointed by the transition from live EP to produced album track. He’s kept a very tangible feeling in there, and that feeling is emotion. You can so clearly hear the emotion that comes with each song, and this is a victory.

Another beautiful thing about the album is how well the songs fit together. It’s not easy creating a diverse album while seamlessly transitioning to each song but somehow this album just works. And the beauty of it is once you get to the end of Shine it blends perfectly in to Rise so you can relive the experience all over again.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go and dance to Everywhere.

A late announcement but here are the results from my typography giveaway! @instakaren13 please have a think about what quote you would like for your custom piece! If anyone else sees their name here please contact me with a postage address! Xox

Let me drown in this new album.

I just realized that I haven’t written anything about the new album yet. Now listening to it surrounded by the darkness of night and the sound of his voice, it’s time to write.

Don’t get me started on the graphic design of this album! The die cut and the way everything fits together. It is just beautiful. If anything -  I would pick on the back of it. I know they were going for simple but there is just something about Helvetica that gets on my nerve and for such a beautifully designed album with such a solid concept, the back was just far too safe.

Can we please talk about Everywhere? Because I can’t stop listening to it. It’s sososososo good!

I completely forgot about Out Of Your Hands and now I’m sobbing.

“I also love “Quiet.” To me, it’s one of the most challenging songs I’ve ever performed. It’s mostly because of my range, it just falls in a really challenging place, but the song is about overcoming those internal challenges, where we can sometimes be overwhelmed by how fast life is evolving and technologies are evolving. How fast our communities are building and how sometimes we just need to take a deep breath and maybe hold the hand of someone who knows us, who knows where we came from, or someone who recognizes that you’re on this journey and through that, we can actually quiet our minds on the struggle. We don’t need to add self-inflicted pain to an already painful human.”

I get the album on Friday and I am sososososo happy!

“I’ve recently had this feeling that because we’re this really unique generation that has harnessed the power of the Internet, we have this ability to transform the world during our lifetime so that the next generation can thrive and has a head start. That means tearing down these walls, while at the same time being equally powerful and responsible in sustaining the fragility of our environment which sustains us.”

That was the best thing. I didn’t think I could love Mona more but I was wrong.
