John Mayer Likes Horsies

July 19th, 2007 // 16 Comments

This is just kind of random. It’s no letter of truth (of which I’m always a big fan), but it is a picture of two horses appearing to be locked in some sort of passionate embrace and it’s a recent post on John Mayer’s blog. In the blog post just prior to the horse pic, John writes:

And don’t worry, tomorrow I’m going to loosen up this blog’s tie and post a wonderful picture of this painting I saw. It’s of these two horses on their hind legs, embracing in the night. It’s really quite special.

I like imagining John ordering this picture be printed up in poster size and framed, so he can hang it on his wall in his bedroom right next to his second favorite picture, a life-sized print of a Lisa Frank poster of two dolphins leaping up in the air to enjoy a mid-air kiss, engulfed in stars, rainbows and various shades of purple as their bodies form a giant heart. Oh John, you’re so sensitive.

    John Mayer’s got such an odd sense of humor… he’s a great musician though. Can’t wait to see him in concert at the end of the month!

    Thanks for reminding me of Lisa Frank. Damn. I actually recall the wonderful smell of her folders at Target.

    Nice Lisa Frank reference – excellent Proustian effect! I totally rexperience junior high for a split second there. :)

  4. John Mayer couldn’t think his way out of a wet paper bag. He has clearly never been within 100 ft of a live horse.

    That is a painting of two horses fighting. Oy!

  5. Wow… total nostalgia for a moment. Lisa Frank… I remember loving that stuff… when I was like 10. WOW… good one.

    I hope he was kidding. The only thing that could make this better is if it were on black velvet.
    Loved the Lisa Frank reference my 6 year old daughter loves her.

    Although I love John’s music, He’s a bit weird.

    Wow. Uhh, actually, Jon, when two horsies are on their back feetsies like that, with their teeth bared and pawing at each other with their front legsies, it pretty much means they are in a furious fight for dominance. That, my dear, is not exactly what I would call, “embracing in the night.”

    i love that you just referred to Lisa Frank. i had completely repressed that entire line. shame on me.

    im pretty sure he was kidding, as he usually is

  11. He has no clue

    I think he just didn’t have a clue about what they were doing and that’s why he thinks they’re hugging.

    Sorry, but that’s some hard core horse fighting going on there. They don’t hug.

    Maybe it reminds him of his ‘dark and stormy affair’ with Jessica Simpson? Maybe it depicts their idea of a hot embrace? Maybe it’s a window into what their sex life was like…two angry horses fighting for dominance.

    Screw you, John Mayer rocks. You obviously don’t have to depth that he has so f off.

    Screw you, John Mayer rocks. You obviously don’t have to depth that he has so f off. He is the one of the greatest guitar players in the history or blues. You know nothing of him and his music.
