Me if @DavidArchie ever makes it to T.O….

…. or even close… like same time zone … or if he releases new music… or gives us a hint about what he’s working on… or just says “Hey guys, it’s David here…” … or does keep us posted about that new language thing… or even just shares the super-secret information about what that language is… I’m thinking Klingon… or maybe there’s a Pokemon language?… anywayyyysss, if any of those things come about, this will be me:

Actually, if he ever did actually come here I’d probably spontaneously combust, but I couldn’t find a gif of that.

How about you guys, what’s on your minds lately? :)

BREAKING NEWWWSSSSS!!!!! DAVID BLOGGED!!!!!!

[excerpt]

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a blog.

I have to admit, it has felt kind of nice.  Not because I don’t like connecting with all of you.  But more to stop worrying about what everyone else thinks.  I haven’t posted as often on Instagram and Twitter as I would before, but that has also felt really nice as well.  Not because I don’t like sharing, but it’s because I have a tendency to get caught up in what everyone thinks about what I’m doing.  I’ve learned to enjoy the moment and the people that I’m with, rather than think “Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be showing everyone my life and how great it is.” and “I’d get more followers if I post more of this.” Or “The more of my face in the photo the more likes it’ll get.”

I don’t intend on giving up.  I’m trying to find the balance of living a life that’s meaningful to me both personally (in my quiet and simple world) and career-wise (as a performer and musician.)  Each aspect involves 2 principles: (1) loving people and (2) keeping that spiritual connection with God.

Read the rest HERE. And leave a comment for this rare butterfly of a fellow.

p.p.s

Okay, I think I’m psychic… I put up this post this afternoon while David was likely spell checking his blog and looking for pictures of himself on Google images (I’m sorry but the way he illustrated his blog with those carefully placed photos and yin yan icons makes my heart melt into a puddle of bubbling goo).

This blog could not have come at a better time. His silence coupled with Kari’s was seriously messing with my mind. Did he call Gina back and say he changed his mind AGAIN about wanting to do this?? Was he working furiously on his new music?? Or training to become a professional snowboarder?? I may be psychic but my powers have limits.

What do you guys think?? My favourite part is bolded and underlined in the excerpt above… what was yours?

This lovely creature (the one on the left) is from Chile and is called a Pudú. The one on the right spent two years in Chile and is called a Porkchop. Coincidence? I think not.

Can you really tell the difference? Take this fun quiz and find out:

And to think David’s in Nashville to finish new music for us?!?

Well, I don’t know how I’m going to sleep tonight tbh. Too much excitement.

I need to mellow out. Breathe. Breathe.

The @DavidArchie Gandalf story revealed (not really)

Besides the loveliness of The Hobbit quote David shared today, I was struck by two things:

1) I remembered when he gave that talk in Hawaii (on the panel of YouTube stars, the irony of which still KEELS me)… and he said something along the lines of “What’s the point of having all these followers on social media if you’re not going to do some good with that” … and he clearly takes that very seriously.

So no more telling cats to hush or poetic odes to crunchy Triscuits.

Makes me a little sad, though, that he never understood how much good he WAS doing with those quirky tweets. How many thousands of smiles he sparked. How many bad days he turned around.

That’s one of the reasons I want to hug the guy who posted this comment on D’s FB:

Nick

2) What was the second thing again? Oh, right. The care David took to post the quote in three separate places. (oh joy that he hasn’t figured out you can post to all three places from IG… but on the other hand, it probably makes him think, rethink and think again to make sure each post is just so… you know?).

And can’t you just picture him pouring through Google images to find just the right shot of Gandalf?

I can, in fact I imagine it went something like this:

Top 10 @DavidArchie disguise tips (really)

You know how, right after the indulgence of the holidays, you make a bunch of resolutions to start working out more, managing your time better, setting goals and working toward them? Well, I don’t, but I’ve heard a rumour that some others do that.

And we know from past quiet David Januarys and Februarys (Januaries and Februaries?) that David is BIG on lists and resolutions and the like and does super drastic things like taking social media off his phone so he can be more … what’s that word he loves to use? … productive, that’s it.

Now, clearly, since 2015 was bandied about in a bunch of places as the year when he’d be releasing new music and David doesn’t like to disappoint people… or be late… or get his years mixed up … it’s pretty obvious what he’s busy doing right now… gettin’ busy. His last tweet mentioned “anxiety” … coincidence? I think not.

After all, he does have a bunch of sold-out shows he’s committed to doing, which he probably wants his new music out in advance of, so like, you know, no pressure or anything.

Anywayyyyys, if his quietude means we get any new tunes at all from him, I say, soldier on Mr. Archuleta, you are definitely worth waiting for.

In the meantime, I like to focus on truly important matters. Like, when he gets back on the scene, he’s going to need some new techniques to avoid being swarmed by fans wanting autographs, selfies, hugs, high-fives or just to breathe the same air as D’Arch.

Is his current cap-sunglasses combo stopping peeps from recognizing him?

.
tumblr_nufpnyzguq1uohf6ao1_1280

Not so much.

So here, David, free of charge, are some suggestions to help you go in flagrante incognito.

IDEA #1
Clip-on Man Bun. Is this perfect, or what? David could clip this on and NO ONE would ever guess he was the one, the only, David “glows like a night light” Archuleta. BAM.
see-the-clip-on-man-bun-a-hair-extension-that-shouldnt-exist-1

.

IDEA #2
This is a little number I like to call “Amish Hoodie” after a hysterically funny episode of a Canadian show I love called Schitt’s Creek. It has feathers across the top, further adding to the disguise. And David likes hoodies, so there you go. Win/Win.
Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 2.37.09 PM

.

IDEA #3
Grizzly Adamschuleta … My personal view is that men should only grow beards if they have a weak chin, or something else to hide… so David clearly is not a good candidate… but disguise potential? High, very high.
david-with-a-beard-pts-by-netterbutter

.

.

IDEA #4
HEY, IT WORKED FOR CLARK KENT!!!!
david-archuleta-wearing-his-sisters-glasses-5-2014

.

IDEA #5
I know this is controversial, but I was #TeamBeanie back in the day. Of course, as soon as he flashes that smile, it’s game over disguise-wise.
david-beanie

.

IDEA #6
He could go full-on Sia…minus the lipstick of course… although that would really throw off the papparazzi.
Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 3.02.53 PM

.

IDEA #7
Too extreme?
David-Archuleta-since-his-mission-10
.

IDEA #8
Again with the hoodies… but I think this one’s a winner. And warm. Looks very warm.
article-2259253-16D099F0000005DC-681_634x744

.

IDEA #9
Okay, okay, this one is a little Josh Bradleyesque … and sidenote: that bunny suit didn’t actually work for Josh… but this, um, headwear might cause enough of a distraction to keep his identity under wraps.

I’d advise him not to wear it during hunting season, however.
Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 3.36.09 PM

.
IDEA #10
Saved the best for last. Practical AND effective. Come on you knitters out there, get those needles flying… THE ARCHULETA NEEDS YOU!!!!!
beard-hat
.

How about you guys?

Are you happy David’s hunkering down, so to speak, getting down to business? Are you getting ODD withdrawal shakes and DTs? Or are you just worried he’s fallen among the balloons and can’t get up?
Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 2.58.58 PM
p.s.
Had to add this one… combines his love for hoodies with his penchant for dinosaurs… and he could glide through any flower shop, Korean BBQ or plaid-shirt outlet mall completely unnoticed … you’re welcome, David, most welcome.

Things to do while you’re waiting for @DavidArchie news….

● Do copious quantities of drugs (not recommended).

● Eat copious quantities of chocolate (recommended).

● Flail about this:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

● Watch American Idol’s final season!!!
IDontCare

● Start working out.
tumblr_nhkpgwE9aT1tkb2p0o1_500

● Get some reading done.
tumblr_o0pnpmDWoc1qhnszoo1_400

● Put your headphones on and remind yourself of the beauty of this:

● Become a Bieber fan
giphy2

 

● Write a long letter to David outpouring all your heartfelt support, urging him to “take all the time he needs” then put it through the shredder, burn the shreddings in a big bonfire on the beach and instead send a postcard that reads, “WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?!?!?! Sincerely, a friend.”

● Then chill

Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 10.38.37 PM

● Do good deeds for people in need, smile at strangers, shovel your neighbour’s driveway, visit a local orphan …. (Hey, wait a minute… David, dude, did you hack into my post????)*
tumblr_o0rs60ZeI61qbjx1wo5_540

When all else fails….

● Sleep with the zucchini

Ode to us

CUJHE7PUYAAp-0d.jpg-large‘Twas 16 nights after Christmas and all through the street

Not a smidge of David news, not even an inspirational tweet

The fans kept on checking and lurking with care

In the hopes that more concert dates soon would be there

The fans were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of new music danced in their heads

And Katsu in her fur and David in yet another new cap

Had just settled in for a long winter’s nap

When suddenly on YouTube there arose such a clatter

I sprang into my chair to see what was the matter

Away to the desktop I flew like a flash

Smacked it out of sleep mode till my whole system crashed

I rebooted quick to see why folks were so riled

And saw a sight scarier than Shay Carl’s smile

What to my wondering eyes was then shown?

But a blast from the past trying to drum up fans of his own

The silence from central command was absolute

But we’ve waited before, we’re nothing if not resolute

We know David’s busy, that hint can’t be missed

He had 6,4269 items on his alphabetized New Year’s resolution list

 

Yet here we will sit trying not to go numb

Awaiting the day new music will come

Now singing! Now salsa dancing! Sasschuleta, it’s time

On soundchecks! On rehearsals! On studio time!

To the top of the stage! To the top of the charts!

No pressure at all! :) Just follow your heart!

And what of Idol rumours that someday D. will be on?

They’re hard to believe — my conspiracy theory’s still strong

All I can say is, if they snub him again

They’re bigger idiots than I thought, and my thoughts are quite grand

He and Cookie could sing a duet, ratings would soar

Cheers they would get, crowds would scream “MORE!”

 

So this is the end of my cheesy post-Christmas tale

A New Year brings new possibilities, that’s what my fortune cookie says

 

So let’s raise a glass — of water or Sprite

Happy 2016 to all, and to all a good night!
