John Mayer's 'Current Mood' Is The Only Way To Start Your Week

John Mayer's 'Current Mood' Is The Only Way To Start Your Week

Instagram Live is the new late night talk show.


Love him or hate him, John Mayer does what he wants. And he's really good at it.

He's a genius singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer and performer with a quick wit, and he's known to say and post whatever is on his mind. He doesn't take life too seriously and that really comes in handy with his newest project: his Instagram series.

He posts stories daily with relatable content that gives us a look into his life, and it's super legitimate. So legitimate that he decided to promote it on Jimmy Kimmel's show instead of his new single. But the best part of all is his Instagram Live show, "Current Mood." It's current because it's completely live and on the spot.

It has a set, guests, performers and jokes just like a talk show, but it's actually better because John Mayer recognized that it takes a certain level of ignorance to make it work. And he's fine with being on that level for the sake of content.

It is absolutely the best way to start the week on a high note, maybe even the only way.

And yes, it really is just John Mayer sitting in front of his phone reading and responding to comments and talking about cereal for a half hour.

And yes, the set is just a table that is actually a cardboard box and a posterboard that he glued stuffed dogs onto.

But that doesn't take the magic away from it. It gives him something to do and it gives thousands of people something good to watch without commercials.

Another really great thing about it is that it's so personal. The people watching get to comment and become a part of the show. And it's all John; there are no writers and no staff. He invites the guests, he built the set and he comes up with what to talk about. Plus, he has super cool friends who guest star and play songs and comment.

In just the first four episodes he's had Andy Cohen, Charlie Puth, Cazzie David, Cautious Clay and Thundercat. We get to see him interact with people close to him, and everyone seems to adore him.

You never know what you'll end up watching because John Mayer is a man of many thoughts, but he's also incredibly lighthearted. So, he responds to things and answers weird questions and makes the viewers a part of the action. He's just a guy who wanted a talk show, so he made it happen for himself.

He sends off his viewers on a great week with a sermon wishing them well. He's positive and says everything a person needs to hear on a Sunday night before they go to bed and get a fresh start. He really is the best person for the job.

And let's be honest, Instagram is usually super negative and it makes us feel bad about ourselves, so, it's awesome to have an element of guaranteed positivity and light-hearted humor.

To The Dog That Changed My Life

What I once thought was going to be "just a dog" has turned into my favorite shotgun rider, my hiking buddy, and the cutest little ice cream date in the world.


"And I found that life sometimes has a funny way of giving you exactly what you need, but not in the form you expect."

I never expected that form to be in a 60-pound ball of fur who has filled my life with love, laughter, and so many muddy paw prints that I lost count.

I never expected a dog to change my life that much. In reality, I wasn't even ready for the responsibility. But, her puppy eyes melted my heart, and I knew that I just had to adopt her.

I got her when I was nineteen and just starting school with zero extra time for a puppy. But, somehow, we made it through. We grew up together. She taught me responsibility and gave me something to work for. Having a puppy makes you get out of bed on your bad days. Having a puppy makes you want to go to work to be able to afford dog food. Having a puppy makes you want to stay home because she can't be left alone for too long. With every passing month, she got bigger and I got more responsible.

She has changed my life in ways I never could imagine. She gives me the motivation to work hard in school. She gives me something to look forward to coming home to. She gives me happiness when I feel like I lost everything, and she gives me so many smiles because I get to wake up to her every morning.

What I once thought was going to be "just a dog" has turned into my favorite shotgun rider, my hiking buddy, and the cutest little ice cream date in the world.

I am so thankful that she changed my life the way she did and filled the hole in my heart that I didn't even know was missing.
