So we might not know what’s up next for David Archuleta, but one thing we do know is that he made a New Year’s resolution to keep us updated by filming video blogs.
(Okay, I use the term “updated” loosely.)
We also know that he likes to mix things up a little in terms of locations and costars.
Most recently, we’ve had closet vlogs, banana tree backdrops, snowy cats, random gorillas, and a striped fabric enclosure that looked like he was Harry Potter living under the Dursley’s staircase.
So in the absence of any real news of any kind, I put together this poll just for fun, to find out where you think the next vlog location might take place … and if you choose “at the piano,” I’m particularly interested to learn what songs you might like to hear if he did ever decide to serenade us. (Just puttin’ that out there. 🙂 ) My first choice would have to be
“A Case of You.” *dreams* … changed my mind to “Free Man in Paris” (which seems appropriate right about now … “stoking the star-maker machinery behind the popular song” 🙂 )
P.S. Just read this on IDF (by dolls17) and loved it so thought I’d share:
I just want to encourage everyone to hang in there with David, although we have no idea what he’s doing right now. lol. IDK about you guys, but when things aren’t clear, I go searching for the things that are. And these are the things that are clear to me:
(1) When David first tweeted about making tough decisions, alot of fans responded and said they’d stand by him & continue their support through whatever decisions he made.
(2) David was very thankful for that, and he said “That means alot”. I think that whatever he’s facing, he draws strength from believing that we’ll still be there when it all works out.
(3) He said in his vlog that, as an artist, he’s going in a different direction. And that he’s excited about being able to go in that direction. Which tells me that he’s definitely planning on continuing in music.
(4) He’s been working hard at writing songs. He could be doing that just to keep his mind mentally fresh until a label comes along…Or because he needs to narrow down and define his sound more, to help him decide which label & mgmt would suit him best. I know that when Ciara was “dropped”, one reason was because she didn’t have a “defined-enough” image. Maybe JIVE advised him to work on this before going any further…Or maybe he needs some songs to submit to prospective labels…
I know that the “not-knowing” and waiting has not been very fun. I’ve seen people getting extremely worried, discouraged, irritated at David for not saying what he’s up to, starting to feel disconnected, feeling guilty that they feel disconnected…the list goes on an on. I can honestly say that I’ve felt all those things, depending on what day it is. And I’ve reached the conclusion that those feelings are normal (unless I’m not normal, which is entirely possible. lol)
A few fans were trying to cheer me up awhile back, & they pointed out a few things…One is that David needs to do this if he wants to get further in the industry. He needs to regroup, define himself, define his goals, and figure out the best next step to reach those goals. Going through the process can take a long time. But if he doesn’t, he’ll just keep spinning his wheels and won’t get any further than this….Also, it could be that David is being tight-lipped because what he’s dealing with is a very personal and private matter to him, so all we can do is respect that and be patient (I’m not very good at that, but I’m trying). Or, if he’s like me, maybe when he’s facing big decisions he needs alot of alone-time and family time to…ponder. lol.
Anyway, I don’t know if that will help anybody. But I just want to say “hang in there” because I’m sure that David needs us to, and because we’re usually awesome that way.
