I’ve been keeping this rock in my room since college. All I can remember is that I got it from a beach somewhere. But I can’t remember from what beach, who am I with that time, and what special event happened, that I still cared to bring it home with me considering that it is so heavy. This rock must really be special. I really wanted to find out. I tried closing the lights in my room hoping that it would glow in the dark. But it did not.
While I was looking at it, I thought of Jason Mraz again! His latest video, I’m Yours reminded me of my college days when we used to go to beaches, lakes, waterfalls (unplanned). It maybe tiring at times especially when we walk on slimy wet rocks, but its all worth it. It made me miss my old friends. I haven’t been going out lately because I’ve been concentrating on my personal geeky projects that consume my time and money. Plus, I have dayjob too!

Jason Mraz is one of my favorite artists in the music industry. Its been a long time since I heard him sing. It just so happened that while I was listening to my AI7 mp3s, I noticed that one of the contestants (Jason Castro) sounded like him except that Castro couldn’t belt out.
Anyway, I searched for “Jason Mraz” on Wikipedia and to my surprise found out that he has just released a new studio album. And so I decided to make this post about him.
Jason Thomas Mraz (born June 23, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter, born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia, a suburb of Richmond.
Mraz is an eclectic artist with multiple and varied stylistic influences, including pop, rock, folk, jazz, country, and hip hop.
What I like about Jason Mraz is his versatility as a vocalist.
Jason Mraz can sing.

Jason Mraz can do vocal acrobatics as well.

Jason Mraz can sing alternative songs. There’s no need to expect something extraordinary from him vocally on these songs. In alternative songs, it is “usually” the band or the “arrangement” that does the job. (I think)

What else? Oh wait, there’s more!
