We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things

Who can forget Jason Mraz’s Geek in the Pink and Wordplay? His up coming album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things is scheduled for release on May 20. The video above is video of “I’m Yours,” one of his new singles from his upcoming album.

In the interview with NewNowNext he talked about his kooky video blog, his collabo with Colbie Caillat and his love for his many gay friends.

Here’s an excerpt:

Why the decision to release three EPs? (WE SING came out March 18th; WE DANCE came out April 15th; and WE STEAL THINGS will be available as part of the iTunes album bundle.)

It’s been so long since I’ve put anything out; I spent the last year-and-a- half just work-shopping the sounds in coffee shops and everything. And I promised a lot of people I was going to make an acoustic project next – and when I came home from London, I had my funkiest album yet. And I thought, OK, I guess an acoustic album would be next.

Then I came up with the idea of the three EPs, and that gave me the opportunity to release the album songs in a stripped-down, raw format … And I just thought it would be fun – to reintroduce ourselves to the world. ‘Cause I hear so much from the fans, We just like it when it’s just you – just you and Toca. And I do too; I love that. Because I spent a lot of my year as an acoustic duo and a funky band; I divided it up equally. It’s a sort of way to divide up this album, to have an acoustic version and a dance-able version.

Blog to Death?

A few weeks ago, Russell Shaw, a prolific blogger on technology subjects who died at 60 of a heart attack. In December, another tech blogger, Marc Orchant, died at 50 of a massive coronary. A third, Om Malik, 41,survived a heart attack in December.

According to this article by New York Times, many bloggers are suffering from sleep disorders, exhaustion and other types of non-stop strain of producing blog entries.

To make you feel better, it also says “To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic. There is also no certainty that the stress of the work contributed to their deaths. But friends and family of the deceased, and fellow information workers, say those deaths have them thinking about the dangers of their work style.”

So I guess we don’t have to worry, yet.

Danny Noriega on Gay Cruise

After the openly gay idol contestant Danny Noriega was voted off, Rosie O’Donnell posted a video inviting him and a plus one to her cruise that’s heading to Mexico on her blog. She also wants him to perform Tainted Love.

So Rosie doesn’t have enough performers I assume? Maybe she should start a Cruise Idol for those who didn’t make it to American Idol.

P.S. Wrong choice of song, both Danny and Rosie.
