I wanted to drop a quick line or two… or more.. haha. I’m in Sacramento right now, where I had my very first Jingle show during the holiday season last December. It was a lot of fun. At that specific show we had Katy Perry, Jesse McCartney, Boys Like Girls, and my good friend Shontelle!!! First time meeting all of them. We also didn’t have a show yesterday, so I just had some interview stuff and did things for the Rising Star Outreach foundation. I then went to see Harry Potter 6! It was a really good movie!

This last week was our San Jose show too, and my family came! I got to hang with them that night, and it was nice spending quality time with them, even though it was just for the night. The next day I had to fly out to Utah to do some recording, which is kind of funny since I was flying away from my family to go work in Utah haha. But it was great getting to record more Christmas music! After that I went to LA the next day to record some more Christmas songs. I am working with Eman on a bunch of these Christmas songs so it’s good working him again. Maybe we can get some pop stuff going after all this Christmas stuff too haha.

Tomorrow is the LA show, and I’m always nervous for anything in LA lol. It always seems like there’s more pressure, but I’m really excited for it! It should be fun with everyone coming. I have some friends coming too so I’m looking forward to seeing them! Some familiar faces.

I’d also like to mention that Brooke White’s new album has come out on iTunes! It’s so good!! So happy for Brooke :) . It has that good old-fashioned raw sound to it, and it’s just refreshing to hear. I’m pretty sure the official release of her album is the 21st, but has been released on iTunes. Another good album that has come out is Owl City! I went to their concert a while ago and they have some really good stuff. So you should check both of those albums out.

So sorry this is a sloppy blog lol. I felt like it was organized in my mind, and there was something else I wanted to say but I forgot. But I guess it’s good that my mind has finally stopped going on and on and on about nothing. But hey I need to head to soundcheck now! I’ll talk to you all later!

P.S. it’s Tom Fletcher from Mcfly’s birthday tomorrow, so wish him a happy birthday!

P.P.S. A lot of you aren’t familiar with Totoro. He’s an anime cartoon character thing from a movie I loved when I was a kid haha. I really don’t know how to explain him. I’m sure he’s on google though. It’s from the movie My Neighbor Totoro.

Songs for the day: When We Were One – Brooke White Hello Seattle – Owl City

The little stinker of a red eye has subsided quite a bit since the Seattle show. I hope it’s not causing him any pain or irritation.

I Assaulted David Archuleta

Jul 13, 2009 by Jared Smith

I flew into Los Angeles today and accidentally assaulted David Archuleta in the process.

I was seated in the front, bulkhead row of cabin class and when the plane stopped at LAX, I stood up, squeezed through traffic, pulled down my bag from the overhead compartment, and then tried to back into the galley area right by the exit door. I didn’t realize that while I was getting my bag, David had come from First Class and had occupied the area immediately where I was backing. I smacked him pretty hard with my backpack. Of course this is perfectly understandable because in real life David is roughly the height and build of Frodo Baggins.

I immediately apologized and he said it was OK. It took me a few moments to realize who it was. I knew it was someone famous, but it took a second for my mind to process…

Famous person? Yes.

Singer? Yes.

On TV? Yes.

A Jonas Brother? No.

David… whatchamasomething……….? Yes!

I now realize that if I’d have been paying attention, I would have realized something was up before we landed. Apparently everyone on the plane but me knew he was in first class. I suddenly realized that the stench of estrogen was strong in the air and that every female was now mobbing to get a glimpse of him. I was literally being pushed toward him and he was being pushed, by me, into a corner. I’d like to say that I was filling the role of his bodyguard by shielding him from the onslaught with my body, but I really didn’t have control over the situation. (He was, by the way, totally alone.) We were inches apart and face to face… well, face to neck/chest/breast area maybe.


Here’s how our conversation went from there…

Me: “Oh… Hey… How ya doin’?”

David (smiling): “Great!”

Me (shouting): “GET BACK YOU DEVIL WOMEN!!!” Ok, I didn’t yell this, but wanted to. Instead I stupidly asked, “You here for work?”

David (probably thinking I’m a git for asking that question in L.A.): “Yeah.”

Me: “Cool. Ummm… have fun!”

David: “I will.”

The flight attendant then opened the plane door.

Me and David at the same time: “Go ahead.”

Me: “No, go ahead.”

David: “Go ahead!”

Me: (Stared at him knowing there’s no way I can go before HIM!)

David: “Sorry. OK. Thanks.”

We then exited the plane where we were both mobbed by teenage girls who kept asking us for pictures… or more specifically, asking me to take a picture of them with David. I think they thought we were together – probably brothers… or something like that.

He was very gracious and even thanked me a couple times for taking pictures of other people with him. I did sneak one quick picture in before he literally RAN through the terminal to get away from the growing mob of giddy teenage girls and middle aged mothers.
