it would be pretty awesome, admit it

so i’ve always thought john mayer was a pretentious douche, and i’ve never liked his music, and i absolutely agree with jezebel’s assessment of his recent playboy interview. but i also have a confession. this quote totally made me giggle:

Here’s me thinking about stuff: “Wouldn’t it be cool if you could download food?”

because back in the day, when i was a massive stoner living with 3 others of my kind in an apartment directly across the street from a 7-11, we said this all the freaking time. we would sit on our futon, stare out the sliding glass door at the beckoning neon of the 7-11 sign, sigh, and say to one another “man, someone needs to invent some way for food to just appear, like out of the wall, like on star trek or some shit.”

so i’m laughing to be so vividly reminded of those halcyon days, and a little bit ashamed that i have something in common with john fucking mayer, of all people.

    that guy seems to spend an inordinate amount of his time thinking about stuff that’ll get him known as a great quote. there was some interview a month or two back where he just blurted out some non-sequitur shit about how often he masturbates. it is a funny quote, but the idea that he sat down with a writer, worked it up and then looked for a chance to drop it cheapens its appeal.

    as to the question at hand though: I mean hell yeah, but do I still have to pay? because if we can figure out a way to pirate food then I’m really on board. there is something a bit disturbing about eating the same hamburger that a bunch of random piratebay users did though. “you uploaded this while it was still hot right? I don’t want salmonella… oh gross it has a bite missing.”
