A link to a music forum popped up in my Google alerts recently with the topic headline “Can David Archuleta make a comeback?” *gulp*
Most interestingly to me, it wasn’t a David-fan forum. According to their home page, it’s “an interactive music community where you can discover and share the latest pop music news, charts, and videos, discuss topics, write blogs, post your own personal music countdown, and participate in games” that’s been around for 14 years.
I almost didn’t want to click on it. One plus for us of David not being in the news lately is that we can stay in our little ODD bubble where everyone at least agrees on one thing: how talented David is.
But of course I did click on it. I’m sharing it here, warts and all for a few reasons:
- I’m encouraged that anyone out there even brought him up as a topic on a music forum.
- I find it interesting to step out of our ODD bubble and hear what non-uber-fans have to say about his chances and I thought some of you would too.
- Amazingly, only one response was lewd (albeit in a complimentary way) so it’s the only one I left out… everyone else answered fairly seriously.
- Although my first knee-jerk response was to sign up for the forum and declare “Of course he will!,” I thankfully I got a message that the forum wasn’t accepting any new members right now. I say thankfully because I don’t think my gushing super-fan comments would have done David any favours tbh.
(****WARNING**** Don’t read on if you don’t wish to read anything negative about David.)
