Let’s play a game I like to call “Real or Fake?” You decide!
David meets Godzilla, er, Priscilla….
That fear was real, my friends.
Mustache – fake
Knees – real…
As are the biceps… just sayin’
And blog all you want, David, the boots have always been real…
Please tell me this was fake.
The “please move along” face? Real.
100%-certified American Cheese
Nor your dagger eyes….
What’s the word for “fake” in Elvish?
The struggle was real.
The signs were right there for us….
How did we miss them??
“One of the best guys” … real.
As a wise friend told me recently:
“When he’s singing though that’s real… you can’t fake that…”
“Your pies don’t lie.” gets my nomination for picture caption of the year. Heeeee!
Ditto. lol. 🙂
Ack… Your pies don’t lie nor your dagger eyes!!!! Hahaha this post is pretty dang funny TOfan! I think the dagger eyes are something we may see more of??? Lol go David!!
Tofan, this is serious humor !!!! I just love you !!!! 😀 I think we all need to lighten up, Taking cues from David. haha
Are you kidding me?!!?? The mustache was fake???
hahaaaa. yea. fake.
Oh my..I went from LOL to those dang tears again! *sniff*
This – Evoked emotions high/low, but we gotta go with the flow!
TOfan, Bravo! You had me laughing and crying. Good Place, so real.
Really funny. Nothing fake here. LOL
Too funny! Love the Jaws music and the Elvish word for fake. There isn’t one. (yes i looked it up on google elvish translator) Since there is no word for fake, I guess that elf pic is real. gaaah!
Real plus *sniff*.. yea, about as real as it gets with Mr. A. Love that photo…loved those videos…loved that tourrrrr….sigh. Ok…let me refocus…
Re: Album covers….I rejoiced finally when “No Matter How Far” came out…THAT pic was finally real David, to me. (still his Twitter avi too, so maybe he agrees..)
(to this day I don’t understand the “near-suicidal” demeanor in SBL….did he just hate that song?)
Funny & light-hearted teasing as usual…tks for the laugh, TOfan.
…still chuckling over “Your pies don’t lie.” ha.
Oh plus, I love your friend’s quote! You CAN’T fake that. 100% so real it hurts. ..in a good way.
ohmyheck, just read your comment on the OS! Love it so much, sharing it here, hope you don’t mind!

I love the written blogs! You write from the heart, openly and honestly and it comes through, and never more than this one. This blog really struck me. I so appreciate the respect you’ve shown us here by opening up and expressing yourself, in an effort to be understood and accepted, authentically. And though you feel this is new for you, to me it comes as no surprise because it’s seems like who you’ve always been at heart. I hope you feel from the tremendous outpouring here, how much you are truly cared about by those of us who just know you through your music. Just be you, David. Your introverted nature is what feeds your art; take the time and space you need– to be, feel, reflect and express yourself how & when you feel comfortable. The fact that you have this self-awareness and the courage to honor it, at such a young age, is admirable and will serve you well. You’ve experienced so much, so fast, since emerging on Idol, in an industry where it’s tough to balance real life with celebrity. Tough to be a human-being when you’re also “the product” for sale. I can only imagine how it was for you; but still want to say, your authenticity came through too. I continue to have the utmost respect and admiration for how you handle yourself as a human being and with others. Do what you need to do and live your life, fully, happily. Some things remain constant. I still see the uniquely, (insanely!) talented guy who bowled me over on Idol, with a musical soul and voice like no other. I am forever rooting for that guy! I trust your personal and musical instincts implicitly. I know music will come…it’s in you. I know I will love you singing it! And the truer you are to yourself the better it will be for you and your fans. I look forward to whatever you may want to share with us, whenever. Peace. Thanks for sharing and for being you. ~Amy (I’m long-winded too. 😉 )
*JAWS theme song* bwahahahah
Also bringing over this comment from the OS (from a MoTab choir member):

I just love your openness, honesty, and vulnerability in this post, and I can so relate to the feelings you expressed. Way to embrace just being YOU. Ironically, I think that’s what brings the attention you’re not even seeking… we all just love you for your humility and sincerity! I was a young newbie in MoTab when you were the guest artist at our Christmas concert, and you won over the whole choir just by being yourself. Keep it up. 🙂
Good comment from the choir member. So true, David just being himself will draw attention because of the nature of who he is…not to mention that voice, always real.
Thought I had commented earlier, guess not, ha. Good post TOfan, love the humour in it!
For me too, the boots are always real. 🙂
Don’t know how I missed the comment from amb4da that was brought over. Very beautifully expressed and well put, right on the money I think. I completely agree with those well stated words and the sentiment put in to them. It’s nice to see many heart felt responses to David’s hear felt blog.
Looking forward to David’s future expression through his craft. His heart and soul were always there. Will just be doing things his way, good for him.
