Shorts + black socks + coolio hanging sunglasses + burgeoning fluffehish hair = WHO ARE YOU, MR. ARCHULETA???

(NOT going to comment on the shorts/black-almost-knee-socks combo because I tweeted about it last night and got virtually body-checked offline! Yikes!)

Another angle (in HD 🙂 ):

    ❤ DavidSquared.

    Always something just special about that pairing…and nostalgic to many. Idol fans of all walks whether Team Archie, Cook or of other contestants of other years…many still say Season 7 was the best. Because of those two.

    ps. Are black socks the new white belt? Haha….okokok…just teasing!
    If he'll just show up on a stage in my neck of the woods soon~ he can wear whatever he wants!!

    Don’t mind me, just leaving this here and running away ;p

  3. oliveoil says:

    LOL “Grandpa socks”. Don’t think I’ll ever warm up to that style.haha .

  4. Kizzi says:

    WOWZA!!! Hooray. Such maturity in his voice. So humble.

    ….Why do I keep running from the truth?
    You got me hypnotized
    So mesmerized….

    Oh my heck, gotta lose the “Grandpa socks.” Guess he could possibly (j/k) be in a 12-step program to wear shorts and shoes without socks and grand pa socks are part of the behavior modification process. 😀

    • TOfan says:

      “such maturity in his voice” yes!!!

      I keep thinking about what D. said in his blog: “It was interesting to me as this was my first time coming back performing with the title ‘David Archuleta’ and having to embrace that since my mission. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel” … he never really shares how he feels about that and I just hope each of these little “baby steps” back to “embracing” the title “David Archuleta” help him feel okay with that “title,” that persona, that life. (not sure if I’m making sense here, lol)

      • tawna21 says:

        Makes perfect sense, Deb.

      • Kizzi says:

        I hear you Deb. You always make tons of sense.

        Haven’t spent anytime cruising fandom; however, from what has been described on this thread, seems like it is the same with the most vocal “dictating” and “defining” fan behavior. I choose to look at the good, the humor, the gifts, his artistry, that are given and be grateful. If my wishes and desires aren’t being fulfilled as a fan, then I need to look inward.

        David will make his choices as always on his own…I mean he doesn’t consult us anyway, lol. I am sure he is taking in everything after being away two years and deciding what direction to go. I hope it’s singing, as his artistry is something that brings me such joy. So yes, baby steps, getting his feet wet. He was so young in many ways when he did AI and all that came after. I am glad he is doing it “HIS WAY” now. And if opening up and sharing feelings is part of his growth, then YAY for us, the fans. *trys to not stick out grabbe-gimme hands* 😀

        I love you, I love what you do, I would walk over coals for you, I love that when David was on hiatus you carried the torch with such beauty and humor, a bright pure flame, for those of us awaiting his return.

        So, as a SAz commenter, I support you whatever you do. I got your back….always!

        • TOfan says:

          ♥ ♥ ♥ to infinity, Ms. Kiz!!! … and for sure, “He was so young in many ways when he did AI and all that came after” … he really was … it’s no wonder he was probably so burned out by the time he left on his mission and I wouldn’t blame him for having reservations about going back to that life. I’m sure he and Cookie had a LOT to talk about! 🙂

    And now you know why I say hardly a word in the archufandom these days. Every time I even try to be funny, I get the soul sucked out of me. #badfan is now #quietfan becoming #lurkerfan heading towards #notfanatall which will never happen because my Lord did you hear is voice on that speeded up version of Crush. Bless my buttons. Zowie.

    • TOfan says:

      Wow, do I ever hear you, Ms. B.! When did David fans (no one here of course! 🙂 ) get SO serious about the most trivial things?? Socks?? Seriously?? If peeps don’t know I’m just kidding around by now, then I don’t even know what to say… truth is, when it comes to anything but David’s music (hair, accessories, whatEVER)…
      I don't care
      Remember when all this used to be fun? sheesh
      Methinks I need a break. 🙂

      • awestruck says:

        aw TOfan – cyber hug! If you need a break OK, but just don’t let this get you down – soooo not worth it

      • missbianca says:

        Yes, I remember when it used to be fun! And then David said in a peeved video, “I know how you don’t like my hair.” I don’t know what else has happened, but there’s never enough people on twitter anymore to have a fun conversation, not even right after David tweets.

        I miss my people! David is not a real friend to me, but you who read this are. You read my words, you consider a reply, You maybe remember me from last time. You’ve maybe met me me at a concert. You’re important to me (cough *Deb*) and I am sad a lot these days as my peeps slip away into the ether (cough *not you Deb please not you* cough).

        • TOfan says:

          “I am sad a lot these days as my peeps slip away into the ether”… mte Ms. B…. we sure had a blast back in the heydays! But I also got NOTHING done back then, lol, so maybe a little balance is a good thing. 🙂 You don’t have to worry about me, I’m allergic to ether. ♥

  6. peppertara says:

    What a sweet reunion! Those two are truly buddies, how great that Cook had David up on stage to sing and David is such a trooper. I can only imagine him being tired and jet lagged from the last couple of days but what a sport he is…and he sang great!
    Personally, I think David looks rather cute in his outfit. No criticism to anyone though, to each his own, haha. Think it’s a…”whatever your taste” kind of style….I’ve seen other young men wear similar outfits, socks and all. 🙂
    Do love this comment from Lisa: “The lack of photos means that thru the awesome power of Cookleta, a black hole of peace and light formed, stopping time completely.” #science

    • TOfan says:

      I loved that too, pepp… also describes what happens to me when David sings! LOLOL

    • tawna21 says:

      Yeah, that thing I used to do…. carry a camera then realize I had nothing new on it because I’d been so hypnotized and mesmerized that I lost myself!!! Or, out of 695 pictures maybe one was even worth keeping. I’ve learned to leave the photography to those who really know what they are doing with it!!

  7. Tina says:

    Now is no time for a break, Deb!! Who will make fun of his transition from grandpa socks & shorts to lavender chinos and penny loafers???

    Seriously speaking though, I think people are just anxious about scaring him away lol. We’ve all been waiting so long and react to that waiting differently. For some, I see something of a fear that David will get fed up with fans telling him what to do (even though most of the time he isn’t even tagged in the tweets) and just chuck it all and move to a convent in the Alps and sing I Have A Crush On Jesus. So.
    Of course, some may just be really protective of tall socks with shorts. That’s possible too.

      I love the humor and I love satire so please don’t stop because of fans that have no sense of humor!!!

    • TOfan says:

      aww, thanks, Tina (and anonymous!) … def. needed that hug! ****squishes*****
      And you’re probably right about the fear factor, that does tend to put a crimp in some people’s sense of humour… not yours though, PRAISE BE!!! 🙂 “lavender chinos and penny loafers” … that actually sounds Bench-ish 🙂

    • missbianca says:

      Hug, Tina. Hug HUG Hug and another Hug!

    ♥ to all of you and SAZ!
    (and never stop doing exactly what you do, making people laugh – it is one of YOUR gifts.)

    **that voice… oh yeah!

  9. refnaf says:

    More ((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))) all around!
    This is sooo amazing to me, seeing the David’s together again! David’s comment about being on allied ground was perfect! He seemed very comfy and in control on stage, I think we are in for some awesome times ahead!
    I will always be a fanatic for David… fandom not so much ” truth is, when it comes to anything but David’s music (hair, accessories, whatEVER)…WHATEVER!!! Ditto to this TOfan

  10. archugeezer says:

    Shoot! I missed the big hug fest! Sorry. Been out shopping for black socks.

    • missbianca says:

      Saved a hug for you! {{{{{{{{Archugeezer}}}}}}}}

      I have analyzed my “eek!” reaction to David’s black socks and shorts look and decided it comes from two things. First is I’m a geezer-in-training with decades of that is/isn’t what you should be wearing decisions (many ill-advised and if I could find all pictures of me in high school there would be a lot less proof). The other thing is that the strong horizontal lines caused by the dark shorts and the dark socks make him look kinda, well, short. Maybe he needs some shorts and socks in a nice khaki color.

      • archugeezer says:

        HUGE HUGS back, MissBianca!!

        I haven’t mustered up an “eek” yet, but I sure relate to the “decades of that is/isn’t what you should be wearing decisions.” To be honest, I am enjoying the fan consternation over David’s wardrobe choices. As a seasoned geezer, I have at some point donned bobby socks, poodle skirts, bell bottom jeans, platform shoes, gigantic hair and a dozen other trendy atrocities I would have guaranteed to last forever when I was “in the moment.” I know, I know; this is hard to believe coming from the socially aware and fashionably astute person I am today. 🙂

        David’s newest look is not my favorite, as I expect him to yodel at any moment, but he seems to be plenty comfortable in his own skin-shorts-socks and buttoned-up self. You can’t argue with that kind of confidence, and just maybe he is slightly amused by the reaction. I can imagine him thinking, “OK, tomorrow I’m going to start wearing a feathered fedora with this outfit and then see what they say.”

        Not worrying. It’s gonna get cold in Utah before long and those knees will run for cover. Meanwhile, David rocks “nerdy.”

    And all is right with the world once again 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. sweetonda says:

    Awww, Deb, you can do no wrong in my book! I love everything you post and most of the time this is where I get to chuckle and actually laugh out loud. They say that’s good for the soul, so a big THANK YOU for all you do and have done keeping this blog going.

    Loving all the pics of David and Cook. I really don’t care what David is wearing, I just want to see that beautiful smile and hear that amazing voice. We fans have been really blessed in the last few weeks. I’m happy *clap,clap,clap* 🙂 Sending ((((((hugs)))))) all around!

    • TOfan says:

      hey, sweetonda!!!! So great to “see” you!!! Yes, it has been an action-packed few weeks! Not gonna lie though, my fingers are cramped from crossing them for more videos of those songs he sang over there! 🙂
