In honor of the birthday of one of the greatest humans ever, my brother Smith, I'm reposting some of his fine moments. Happy birthday, Smith.

By the way, speaking of fine humans, I ran into Dave Grohl last night at the frozen yogurt place I go to, and he is one very cool guy. I know him but it's not like we're besties, yet he's the coolest, most down-to-earth, nicest guy. With all the douchey unfriendly tools out there in rock land, it's nice that some people are real human beings.

If Smith wasn't already my favourite person ever, after watching those videos he totally would be. Hahaha.

Really nice to hear that about Dave Grohl, too!

usually i like to keep my comments pithy, but that's impossible when it's all about smith-y!

1. are you SURE this is the same person who keeps your tours so well-organized?

2. i would kill for a new one of these videos. the last great one i remember was the "cameraman got game" one.

3. "Does it taste good when it's in your mouth?"

4. i love listening to you chuckle.

5. when will Smith settle down and get married and have a gang of Li'l Smiths?

6. did you ever see Dave Grohl's awesome performance as the Devil in "Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny"? put it on ur netflix queue!

7. Happy Birthday, Smith!

♥♥

Thanks for sharing Jade. That's my sister's birthday too :D That's so cute that you go around filming your bro. I love the reenactment. Nice to hear about Dave Grohl. I always figured him to be a nice guy. Kinda like you :D

J_yellow said...

I'm fairly convinced that cameras need to follow Smith around like all the time.

YES! Your brother is the greatest! If I could post pictures here... I'd share with you a self portrait of himself he drew for my friend and I at the Chicago show last November. This portrait includes the hat and beard! :)

Smith's brilliant, I hope he had a great birthday! About Dave Grohl, he seems to be one of the few people in the music industry thst no one has a bad word about, he just seems like a genuinely decent guy. I wish that whenever I go to a shop near where I live that there'd be a possibility of me seeing Dave Grohl there! Haha

Diana said...

Happy belated Birthday Smith :)

And great camera work Jade, Love it ;)

nick said...

I met him outside of your guys' Vancouver show in January. Nice dood.

Chris said...

Oh Smith, how I love thee. My favorite Smith moment happened at the last show on the Crash Love tour in Omaha. There was this crowd surfer, the guy had to have been about 350 pounds and nobody was enjoying his presence...Then from the left side of the stage flies Smith and he just jumped on this guy and road him like a surfboard until both of them were dropped to the ground. Smith showed good form and has obviously perfected the art of the stage dive.

Crowd surfing is dumb kids. You crowd surf and Smith will surf YOU.

Say Hippi (belated) Birdie to Smith for us!

I can't watch the video thanks to my crappy crap arse phone.
Sooooo I'll watch em when I get on the computer. =)

Your videos of Smith are hi-larious. He should have a video camera follow him around all day. Hehe

Cassii said...

Smith really is one great human being, he's almost as awesonme as you!!!

Ebon said...

Happy belated Smith, may all your wishes have come true.

D'Anna said...

You're such a nice person.

And you're right, the human race is the most selfish, greedy, revengeful, petty group of organisms on this earth, and the few that disprove that are beautiful, shining examples of what we should be.

I know that you were centralizing around the rock world, but it's basically the whole world that's like that. Anyhow, I appreciate you pointing out others' fine qualities.

(:

Mia:) said...

P.S. You should post some more vids of Smith, Jade! He is just so trucking FANTASTIC and everytime I watch these it pretty much makes my day, and I'm pretty sure that goes the same for everyone else. ;)

Kristin said...

Dave Grohl was partly responsible for me discovering AFI. I'm happy to hear he's also a nice guy.

daveysgirl said...

Happy Birthday Smith! Love ya man! I think Smith is my long lost brother. We act the same. lol

Jessica Catoptrophobia said...

Jessica Catoptrophobia said...

Emilie Irwin said...

Noise Electric said...

Amen on all counts!

Obsolete said...

Hahaha the smithers affect. Does his face still look like a 70's vagina?

That's my gf's mom's bday as well as mine and my gf's 37 month anniversidad.

Kick ass jade with your magic ax of sound that shoots out rainbow colored notes with every cord progression you make.

Millieee said...

Oh, Smith~ <3

I can't help but feel incredibly sorry for that snake. Did it get out of the tree okay in the end? D:

And like majority of the other comments have said, Smith definitely should have at least one camera on him at all times~

heather said...

I haven't seen this videos in a while, although I do have them on my video ipod so I can watch them whenever my little heart desires. You should make some new ones!

I know I'm late, but I hope Smith had a very happy birthday!

Jade, you and Smith are both amazing humans=)

Janelle said...

Oh, Smith. What a man. Thank you for documenting & sharing his antics, & I hope he had a fan-fucking-tastic birthday!

Jade, I'm taking your advice. I'm getting off the internet and reading a book. (If you really said that) Don't miss me too much :P
Counting down the days (ok, weeks)til the Irvine show!!
