While we wait….

While we wait for new David music, forgive me while I fangirl for another artist who is talented, genuine, humble, quirky and writes amazing songs… Ben Rector. I have two of his albums and every song on both of them is a gem. He’s not a big name but he just keeps plugging along building a following and a solid catalogue of understated, lovely music with his own signature Ben Rector sound.

He has a new album coming out soon, Brand New, and this is the first single. Love it.

He’s also doing this “free concert in someone’s living room” contest… David should totally do this someday! And I should win. Just sayin’.

On September 3, I’m going to travel to someone’s living room and play a show for free. Yahoo Music and Live Nation are going to broadcast it live. It could be your living room. No kidding. Enter and spread the word! http://benrectormusic.com/livingroom

This Instagram account is my new favourite. Enjoy!

The true story of @DavidArchie’s NZ adventure (not really)

The Shire with the Party Tree and all. Where are my Lord of the Rings fans at? #MiddleEarth #NewZealand #Hobbiton

In honour of David’s NZ trip and LOTR fanboying, I’m reposting a story I shared a while back for the lovely Refnaf’s May birthday (she’s Team LOTR, I’m Team Harry Potter, lol). Enjoy!

***************************************************************

Ref: In honour of your love for all things Lord of the Rings, here’s a little David Archuleta-themed Frodo-esque story for your special day! :)

Counting Davids Character David Archuleta as Frodo

As David the Humble humbly swaggered his way through the Shire, he had a song in his heart … make that two… or maybe six.

He loved to stop and sing at each cottage he passed, especially if a widow or orphan lived within … or a feisty daughter of a prostitute who liked to fly kites.

But on this day, David the Humble had no time to stop and serenade the shirefolk. He had an important mission he was tasked with… no not that mission, another mission.

‘Twas up to him and only him to take the powerful ring to Mount Doom. Yes! The Ring. The precious golden orb engraved with the letters CTR…

…not because of its powers but because he saw a notice on Craigslist that someone lost it and even though the guy lived 1,000 Miles away, it was the right thing to do…. plus, there was a reward: free dragon rides.

Humble David tried wearing the Ring on his right hand for safekeeping but couldn’t stop playing with it. His hand broke out in a rash — worse than when Paula Abdul gave him that sparkly bracelet after Hobbit Idol.

He hurried back to his cottage to ready for the journey. He filled his satchel with mangoes, almonds, 30 Costco sample cups of Kashi cereal, and his trusted copy of The Alchemist … not to read, but as a weapon… he’d sprung for hardcover!

As he entered the enchanted forest, he sang quietly to himself to steel his courage. Two verses of “Wizard Moves Like Jagger” and the chorus of “Everybody Wants to Rule Middle-Earth.” Now he felt ready to take on any foe… except maybe Nicki Minaj, she frightened even Voldemort (oops, wrong book).

At the edge of the woods, our skinny-jeans hero spied a tiny, familiar face!

“Almond!!!”

The squirrel scurried over. But as David the Humble bent down to give Almond an almond, the irony struck him and he spontaneously belted out “Isn’t it ironiiiiiiic?!” Shaking the leaves on all the trees.

Denied his promised snack, Almond was furious. His eyes flashed as red as the fiery pits of Mordor and he glared at the golden Ring. Almond lunged onto Humble David’s hand and tried to pry off the Ring with his uncommonly long squirrel fangs.

After a struggle, Humble David hit Almond with an oar, gave him a glare that would melt ice, called him a hob-knocker, and flung him off into the forest. Then he ran cross-country all the way to Mordor… with only one minor collapse and a rest stop at a welcoming medieval medical centre in the glens.

Out of breath and sweating like a wild boar, he finally reached his destination, tossed the ring at its owner and they all lived Hobbitly ever after.

 p.s. Feeling a tad psychic at the moment, lol.

MOAAAAAAR PICS!

Confession…

Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 2.16.52 PMWhat’s my confession? My first reaction when I saw David’s “Child’s Prayer” tweet, on the SAz sidebar, actually, was to cringe and say to myself, “Oh, David, wearing your heart on your sleeve is not helping your career.”

Then I gave my head a shake. Isn’t being true to yourself more important than potential fame and fortune? I’ve always believed that, so why waver now?

A while back I forced myself to stop being so worried about David’s future … that’s entirely his business, not mine… but every now and then old habits spring back.

I 100% felt a connection with his “Child’s Prayer” tweets. I don’t share David’s denomination but I intimately know the gratitude that comes from feeling the pure, unconditional love of a higher power “close around me,” not only when I pray but always.

So why hide that gift from others?

Yes, I miss his random “hush cats” era tweets and vlogs just like everyone else. But that was then and this is now. And if he’s taking a risk to share his devout side with everyone so openly, I imagine he’s going to be taking similar risks with his new music.

Another confession: I also cringed when I first heard the title “He Showed Me How” … but I LOVE that song now. It feels so raw in its way, his voice tenderly touching, it’s like he’s whispering his own confession to you. And that’s what all art should be in a way, isn’t it?

I know some fans look at David and always see a glass half empty … never quite measuring up to their expectations… but I look at him and see a glass overflowing … don’t get me wrong, not a perfect glass, of course not… but one brimming with a rare talent, with courage, and a genuine desire to give to others and to leave this world a better place than how he found it.

My prayer is: I hope I can be more like that.

Sorry for rambling on — and this is far from funny — just needed to share I guess. Thanks for listening.
