Just a little wisdom from our favorite guy, who posted a new blog today:
Hey folks! I just wanted to let you know about my week really quick, and I’ll really try to not make it so long this time lol. So first of all, I hope everyone had a great weekend and Memorial Day. I had the chance to spend time with my family for the weekend! It was a lot of fun. We actually got to sit down and talk about some of our ancestors, which was really interesting. I also got to go to a concert with my mom and sister Memorial Day. It was the No Doubt concert, and they had Paramore on tour with them. There was also a band called The Sounds that was the 1st opening act. No Doubt were really friendly, and everyone that worked with them on tour kept saying how they’re the nicest and coolest people you could work for. It’s always good to know that, and I thought it was neat how all their employees spoke so highly of them.
So watching the show, we sat in our seats for Paramore’s set.. but moved to the side of the stage for No Doubt’s set. It was a really good show though. Paramore was another really cool group of people. I couldn’t believe that they’re the same age as me! It’s always neat to be able to talk to people your age in the industry who go through the same things you do. You can talk about music, but also just normal stuff people your age talk about haha. But a bunch of really cool people in Paramore. Gotta give them props, and Hayley can freakin’ sing! My little sister was in heaven at the concert, because she loves Paramore lol. I’m really glad that everyone I’ve gotten to meet has just been really cool so far. I always hear about all these horror stories and jerks out there, but it seems like all these people that I run into and meet are totally laid back and friendly. Even people that I hear rumors about, so don’t always believe rumors you guys. Rumors are nasty things haha.
I got to go to Greensboro, North Carolina to participate in a charity dinner for the radio station 1075 KZL. It was a Hibachi Japanese grill restaurant, and I (unfortunately for those at my table) got to try and cook the food haha. I have learned that I am not that great of a chef haha. I actually like almost caught myself on fire, but it was fun! I got to wear an apron and chef’s hat. I appreciate everyone at my table for coming and being good sports about my lack of cooking skills lol. So thanks you guys! I kept burning the food too lol, but hey I like food a little on the cooked side!
After North Carolina, I went to NYC to perform at the PC Richards Theater for Z100 contest winners. It was a small theater, not that many people since you had to win to get in, and I loved it! I felt so comfortable up there and had a blast. Have to thank everyone for coming for that! It’s probably one of my favorite shows I’ve ever done just because it was so laid-back and I got to interact with everyone there. Fun stuuufff. Well I think I’m going to a concert tonight! So I better get going to that, and I’ll talk to you all later.

Who’s surprised that every new person David meets is so laid back and friendly? I think that’s called being under the Archu influence.
