John Mayer & the Spinning Wheel of Death.

Zoink! It's the Spinning Wheel of Death

According to John Mayer’s covert, Japanimated blog, even Superstars are not safe from the spinning wheel of death. Just be glad you didn’t get this message or this one. Fail.

I call this the Mac Attack in reverse. All the coolness and uberness that is your Mac, spinning into a horrific rainbow pinwheel of paused reality. Admit it, it’s a wee bit hypnotic like the iTunes visualizer. (Aside: I can totally predict the visualizer pattern even before it shifts. Zing).

So as a both a Mac user and a Mayer fan, I thought I’d communicate to JM through the blogosphere:

PS. We’ve all been having problems with Leopard. Some of us have even been bold enough to say it suxx bollocks. But to be honest, the latest update has fixed the majority of the suxxage. Might I suggest a software update?
PPS. How much did you pay for “Rainbows”?
PPPS. I like your face.

    oh, that’s too funny, I love it! I soooooo wanted to have his babies before I met my husband, and well, had his baby. My husband used some of JM’s music to get me in the sack, so does that count for anything? Baby by proxy? Perhaps? Maybe?

    Warning, listening to John Mayer may cause you to have a baby.

    That should be on his CDs. Ok, so not on his CD because I rarely buy CDs anymore, how about the comments field in the iTunes metadata?

    Anyhow, I would settle for growing Sea Monkeys with him.

    Good luck with the spinning beachball of death message mission. I hope he ‘clicks your button’ LOL ;)

    sorry guys
    Don’t have a mac now. But as i remember it didn’t crash half as much as my desktop pc. I guess somethings can’t work 100% all of the time. I would be great if when reports were sent back you had at least a formal reply on what there doing to fix the issue.
    Dear bill gates
    Your a bastard 1.1 but no worries, you’ll be upgraded to a bastard 1.2 in the near future. I can’t give you a release date as my pc as just frozen…

    My ex girlfriend was a huge John Mayer fan, and I somehow found myself at a concert of his in Vancouver on Valentine’s day one year.

    With all these recent Apple moves though, they are beginning to remind me more of Microsoft all the time. So much for the underdog.

    @themacmommy — me too. oh me too. glad you found Clapton off that blog to. it’s crazy the amount of uber celebs that blog.

    @Michael Wilson — if i said i told you so i’d probably be over-kill… but oh well. i told you so. evil evil PCs.

    @Christina — reminding you! hope it’s uber juicy.

    @Pasquale — good on ya! would be funny if he got a direct reply from Steve.

    @Duane — aww we’re still the underdog in the terms of numbers. don’t despair, apple’s taken bigger hits than this latest one.
