John Mayer's "One Forty Plus"

Through the homie 13thWithness, I found that his good friend John Mayer has a tumblr, where in turn I found this photo he took while receiving a traditional-style Japanese tattoo as a gift from the father of the art form, Horitoshi 1. That's pretty heavy shit, right? I commented on the whole John Mayer backlash last month and if I must again, he's good in my book and a huge inspiration. Currently he's on the road, by the way. Not in the way you might think a platinum artist is on the road either. Here, I'll let him tell it:

"I’m living out of a duffel bag and a messenger bag. I’m taking photos and taking cabs and taking chances on restaurants that might be the equivalent of a Spagos or a Shoney’s. I’m re-using socks. (once over.) I’m sweating on a treadmill. I’m taking cat naps while in motion. I’m you, only with a guitar and some songs that people can sing along to."

That's what the fuck I'm talking about, man.
