“Aww, she likes my suit! Scootch on over, miss!”

“I don’t actually look like that, do I??”

“Oh no, you did not! *heh heh heh*”


Exhibit 6

“Photographic record of how cool I am? Cool.”



“Photographic record of how cool I am? Cool.”


(k, nvm that one)

Closing arguments, though:


I gave up my dream of joining the ballet... dang you, Archuleta!!!

There you have it, dear jurors. What’s your verdict??

Interesting interview with Stephanie Mabey HERE where she talks about “Glorious,” David and him screaming from a cab in Chile when the window blows off. πŸ™‚

    Oh please, no contest.
    David Archuleta is the only truly COOL one in the bunch!
    #Realisthenewcool #Politeisthenewcool #Humbleisthenewcool ….I could go on but you guys know the rest.
    Love all those photos.
    I ❀ him. That page will never turn. πŸ˜‰
    ps. TOfan, I'm glad your "brain on DA" was inspired to post today..

  2. karenkid says:

    Aww, that last one is an all-time favorite! He wins the minute he genuinely smiles. It’s infectious and he makes winners of everyone around him, too!

    Lmao!!! “Scootch on over miss”….OMG you kill me!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. He’s definitely the cool one ❀️❀️

    Oh, David wins the fan photo Olympics and Nobel Prize. From my one and only VIP photo op:

    Me, approaching him for a handshake after my daughter’s photo: “Just wanted to say hi. Don’t really want a picture….”

    Him: “Awwww, why not? C’mon, do it to remember this by!”

    My daughter: “Yes, Mom, do it!”

    Me (sheepishly): “Oh-kayyy”

    Him: Huge smile, arm tightly around my shoulder.

    Me: Totally melting.

  5. cq says:

    I love your sense of humor, don’t ever stop posting. We need it more now than ever before while we still wait.

  6. missbianca says:

    The picture of David in the helicopter pilot’s seat deserves a Pulitzer. It never fails to make me smile even though things have been rough for me lately. Glad you dug that up!

  7. Mary Dee says:

    “Trying to diffuse bombs here, bud!” is DA BOMB!!! Love it, TOfan πŸ™‚

  8. peppertara says:

    Oh yeah, he definitely wins the fan photo Olympics, no doubt about it. “β€œHe helped me reach the hats!” LOL. Do love all these photos of David, heck his smile alone wins the prize and the “diffuse bombs photo” is just the bomb.
    …and thanks for making us all smile and for digging up all these photos. πŸ™‚

  9. peppertara says:

    Ha, I guess Mary Dee and I were posting at the same time, focused on the “diffuse bombs photo”. Do love it. πŸ™‚

  10. Spirit says:

    Love every one of these fan-photo pictures! The last one has always been one of my favorites. It reminds me of Paula Abdul’s comment that she wanted to squish him, squeeze him, and dangle him from her rear view mirror! πŸ˜€. Not only does David glow in these pictures, he causes those around him to light up, also.

  11. Marylee_NCGirl says:

    hahaha DO you do this?! just keep it coming because it cracks me up & I need the laughs! 😁

  12. roxfox says:

    I think he told them to scootch on over climbing into that copter. Thanks for the pics! I can’t even with that second-to-last one *skeery*

  13. oliveoil says:

    Tofan, that last picture has got to be one of my absolute favorites. Totally relate to the happy hugger. I mean, how can you resist ????

    • Refnaf says:

      Bahahaha David wins hands down… Gold medal for sure…. One for you as well Ms. TOfan!! ((((hug))))

  14. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    It’s David for the win. Full of chuckles. Love this.

  15. TOfan says:


    But also *Standing O* … you go, David!

    And on Instagram:
    message ig

  16. peppertara says:

    Was happy for David reading his heartfelt blog and a little sad for him at the same time. Glad he is finding his own way and doing things his way however, really as it should be. Very honest and brave of him to share his thoughts and feelings, have a lot of respect for that young man. Can only think his future music, in whatever form that will take, will be straight from David and David’s heart
    I agree, the perfect gif.

  17. amb4da says:

    wow…”standing O” is right, TOfan. Huge hug to him.
    That blog just, literally, gave me the same chills his music does. None of this is a surprise at all, really…nor that he wrote so honestly, openly, from his heart, to express himself to us; that is ultimately who he’s always shown himself to be. …and yet it totally still blind-sighted me to see this today. Raw. Honest. As a fellow introvert I totally can relate…he explained it all so well. It’s not about being social, as much as how you “recharge” best, in solitude, with personal space.
    I’ve always seen him as this type, and can understand how difficult it must have been to manage that inside the fame bubble. The fact that he’s recognized all this, held his ground and worked to change the direction of his life, to live more authentically & happily, at such a young age is impressive.
    I cannot even describe the continued admiration, support & respect I feel for David Archuleta. Grateful he shared this. Still here. Always… ready for the music, whenever it comes.

    • Refnaf says:

      Well said amb4da!!!

    • Spirit says:

      amb4da……You stated my thoughts perfectly! I think that many of David’s fans are introverts and recognized that quality in him. That was part of the heart to heart connection that we felt. I’m so grateful that he’s communicating with us in this heartfelt, authentic manner. I can’t express how much I admire and respect him.

    Seems even more poignant now… although the title may have to change. πŸ™‚

    “Good Place”

    I don’t know what I’m doing here
    How I landed in this space
    But it’s a good place

    And I don’t wanna mess it up
    Make mistakes or say too much
    ‘Cause it’s a good place

    You find it
    You hold it
    You feel its grace

    These are words I wanna say
    Every hour of every day
    These are words that say how good it feels
    To be here with you today
    I hope it’s not too late (I hope it’s not too late)
    I hope it’s not too late

    I’ve been silent up to now
    I’ve been going with the flow
    Wherever that goes

    But something’s screaming down inside
    Makes me want to close my eyes
    And hear the echo

    You find it
    You know it
    Don’t make it wait

    These are words I wanna say
    Every hour of every day
    These are words that say how good it feels
    To be here with you today
    I hope it’s not too late

    ‘Cause I don’t wanna waste another summer
    I don’t wanna wait until I fall
    I could be a memory tomorrow
    I could be nothing at all

    I don’t know what I’m doing here
    How I landed in this space
    But it’s a good place

    These are words I wanna say
    Every hour of every day
    These are words that say how good it feels
    To be here with you today
    I hope it’s not too late

    Oh, yeah
    I hope it’s not too late
