*****

Love you guys!!! Have some personal stuff going on that needs my full attention right now. But until we meet again, I’ll leave you with this:

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 8.54.29 PMIn my mind, it’s a no-brainer as to which role David should play in this live Nativity Scene thing. (No, not Jesus 2.0… he might be a tad too tall :) ) … The Little Drummer Boy, of course!

Okay, technically, LDB might be a fictional character, but bear with me.

NOBODY bangs a drum for Him like David, am I right?

When I first saw him do LDB in Westbury, the first stop on the MKOCT, my mind was completely blown.

(This is it here… I love this vid because, well djbell took it for one :) , and I love the crowd reaction, everyone literally went WILD when he started drumming slash rocking it out!

Here’s a cool angle from backstage… band was on FIYAH!

And he’s done so many different, and equally amazing, versions since then.

Which one is your favourite? Share why in the comments!

This Spanish one might be at the top of my list… although I was really wishing it had been David who popped out of that wrapped gift the kids opened up! The Archu-growl was in full force and in Spanish, whoah, just whoah…..

‘Tis almost the season where this version is on serious repeat….

And this one mentions drumming… and is my fave Pat-a-Pan so I’m including it. :)

Oh, this one mentions drumming too… I think.

David Archuleta #NanditoAko script leaks! (not really)


You thought David Archuleta’s TV5 miniseries was about love triangles, family roots, testing friendships and rose-petal dinners-for-two? Think again! Watch the real drama unfold below!

“Pssst, it’s me, Josh … I’m undercover… looking for the weirdos who stole my two-ton backpack … oh, cool shoes btw”

“This is NOT my backpack!! WHERE ARE MY 5-BAJILLION FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS?????”

“I won’t rest till I find it.”

“Uh oh. Did I leave it at the all-you-can-eat mango place??”

“Sorry dude, take it up with the union… it’s work-to-rule till I get it back.”

.

“Hey, kid … what’s the word on the street? Is it Eula or Jasmine who’s got it??”

“I just want to look in your bag… what’s the big deal???”

“WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? I DON’T HAVE YOUR STUPID BACKPACK!!!!!!!”

“C’mon, you must know something, you’re the director …I’ll give you a signed poster and a squiggly pig pin.”

“Back off, Archuleta!!! I have a black belt too!!!!”

“I should’ve known Kari had it all along :) ‘”

(sings) “Reunited and it feels so goooooood!”

Separated at birth….

A friend asked me to do a post about the similarities between David and a young Paul McCartney… and I aim to please. :)

p.s.

And this comment was from just 7 months ago:
“tressinar: This kid can sing the phone book. He should have won Idol.”

Sorry, couldn’t resist (but don’t worry, it’s the one with the lyrics filled in :) )

Totally forgot about these:

Michael Johns *sniff* … and what the heck was Jim Carrey doing in the audience in an elephant suit? lol

Aaaaaaand, from the lovely emilyluvsarchie…..

A different kind of glorious

Maybe you’ve seen this video, which has gone viral. I just saw it now and it moved me to tears. An old, battered piano was set up in downtown Edmonton, for anyone to play, and when this man — Ryan Arcand, who’s been homeless for 30 years — sat down to play his own composition, a passerby was so moved she captured it on video. I’m so glad she did. Nothing to do with David… but everything to do with David, you know?

Here’s more about his story.

Serious @DavidArchie Face Off

I almost don’t recognize David here. SO. VERY. SERIOUS.

Is that an actual FURROW in his brow?

What could he possibly be talking about so earnestly? 

Place your best bets here*:

If you clicked “Other,” please share your suggestions in the comments.

*Yes, I do know what he’s actually talking about but if I need to specify “I’m just kidding,” I will drop by and personally deliver multiple noogies.
