John Mayer: Your Blog is a Blunderland Eick November 9, 2007 Celebrities 9 Comments From Grub Street, I learn that John Mayer has now started an mlog (meal log) on his personal blog. Ok…..well, I suppose with a celebrity such as John, people might be intrigued to know what he is eating. As long as his posts about the food he eats are interesting and the pictures are cool right? “Mmmm….Motorola. Delicious!” Yeah, so about that…turns out, posts, not so interesting. Pictures, not so cool. Endless Simmer has a post up calling John Mayer the “Douchiest Food Blogger Ever.” Why? Well for starters, rule #1 about posting pictures of what you eat, is the pictures must be clear and in focus. So what does John Mayer do? Across his entire picture he writes, “COPYRIGHT 2007. MAYER MUSIC, LLC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THIS PHOTOGRAPH IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.” Check out this picture HERE for an example. How can anyone possibly appreciate the photos of what you are eating when they have giant watermarks across the entire picture? At least John Mayer is being humble and not arrogant about this whole endeavor ….oh wait…uh no, he’s not. When unveiling the idea, Mayer writes on his blog: “If I’m correct, America – no, the world – will want to see this. In fact, I’m not sure why I don’t turn this mlog into a pay site. Oh wait, I remember why – because I love my fans.” Wow. John, I know you’re probably trying to be snarky, but come on dude. Yeah, thank you for loving your fans so much that you provide them with terrible second rate photos of the food you eat. Also, I would like to point out that in the past 6 days you have only posted photos of FIVE meals. Which is why I am starting a new rumor: John Mayer is anorexic. It’s true. If you don’t believe me, check his mlog. According to his mlog, the dude hasn’t eaten anything in 4 days. As if that wasn’t enough to make your head explode, John Mayer seems to think this is the greatest idea since sliced bread. In his second mlog post on Monday, November 5th, he writes: “The public has spoken, and the response is overwhelming; you love my meals and want to see more!! I want to thank everyone for making this such an instant hit. Of all the blogs I’ve ever posted, my mlog has created the most stir. You don’t argue with this kind of success. You just strap in and enjoy the ride!!” Again, we know you’re trying to be funny or tongue in cheek. But still…Well John, I hope you enjoy the ride, because if you refuse to update your mlog each day, prepare to be haunted by the spread of those “John Mayer needs treatment for his eating disorder” rumors that smartass bloggers like myself will trumpet. Your new mlog has created a stir all right, it’s stirring up a level of douchebaggery the food blogosphere has never seen before.
