What the what what what??!!??!!!
AND WHY WEREN’T WE ALL THERE?!?!?
MIRRORS?!?!?! Are you KIDDING me?!?!?
p.s. Shelley & Liz ROCK!!!
AY! AY! AY! CARUMBA!!!!!
That’s right, DO NOT Run Away again!
Looooooooooove this! Te quiero David Spanish song!!!! AND THERE’S A SINGALONG PART, OH HOW I HAVE MISSED HIS “C’MON, GUYS”!!!
(But, um, ladies who walked out at about 4:28, please call me, we need to have a talk.)
Joined the party late, folks, did I miss anything???
What do you guys think???!!!!
NOT PLAYING FAIR, DAVID, NOT FAIR AT ALL!!!!
I have a link in the sidebar to the lovely @rhiminee’s aMAZing Tumblr (run, do not walk, to check it out!), but here are some of her latest posts, they all make me deliriously happy but especially had to share these:
And Kari says there’s more to come.
And the elbow patches… did I mention how much of a fan I am of elbow patches??
The elbow patches, the rambling that we know and love, the lip synching, but above all the singing. The choices. The Mirrors cover. So beautiful , I need to hear it a thousand times and then more.
I would venture a guess that David had professional styling help from head to toe, totally on point, and he should always wear V-necks, very flattering for him. He has many talents but when he picks out his own clothes he tends to look much younger than he is. Here he looks his age and looks dynamite!
my cheeks hurt, been watching lip sing all night , love it
Thanks to all Archies who shared these videos you are all awesome. David is freaking so good looking. Finally he’s back on stage and hopefully he’ll gonna continue doing it. Hoping he will do a concert this year. finally I heard “Don’t Run Away” live. This is one of the best valentines gift seeing David doing what he love to do “singing”. Btw, I love his cover of JT’s “mirrors “. Thanks to Shelly and Liza and all the other Archies who shared this Roots Tech event. You guys Rocks…
Connie, I’m with you on hearing DRA live finally, love what he did with the ending! Also love that all 4 songs were pop songs, message received, sir! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Whew ! Loved all the songs and the HAIR cut. 🙂
Abrra’s Candy jar has new treats. Mp3’s and MP4’s of David’s RootsTech performances. Dig in!
As always, you are the Angel of Angels, Abs!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
And in all the amazingness, forgot all about The Hair… all the young fashionisto dudes at work have that style, goes especially well with elbow patches. 🙂
That Spanish song has really grabbed me… at one of the CFTH shows that my hubs came to, he commented that David’s whole body language changes when he sings in Spanish, he noticed a marked change (a good one) and I find you really notice it here, it’s like a whole other floor has been unlocked in the Palace of Wonder that is David, lol. (Sorry, got carried away there, hahaha.)
Your hubs is very observant and right…it’s in his DNA and it literally shows in the way he feels it and moves…and sings it!
And I love when you get carried away…”Palace of Wonder that is David.”
Oh man…tour time may just be epic.
Deb, I think you need to dig into your funny brain and do a post about “how to train (our hearts, minds & stamina) for upcoming tour.” J’s planting a seed…. 🙂
The Spanish song really grabbed me too, incredibly good! Just loved his cover of mirrors….also incredibly good, as were the other songs he sang. He looked happy performing and loved seeing him on stage again, what a day yesterday!
Was up rather late watching the videos last night (reminiscent of old times)…like riding a bike, ha.
Thanks for putting all this together TOfan, your captions say it all! Big thanks to the awesome fans too who supplied us with these treats and thanks to Abrra for her candy jar, always so appreciated!
Love reading @rhiminee’s aMAZing Tumblr , she has a way! The photos are great too.
Yes, David looked terrific and his amazing vocals and performances complete the picture. Will always have the “IT” factor, happy for him performing “in his element”.
“The Palace of Wonder that is David” owned that stage. 🙂
Overwhelmed by all this, wow!
Is this one new? Outstanding quality.
Woooo! *fangirling* All that IT when he’s onstage. I hope he feels happy to have done this show. I’m sure he’ll need a quiet place for a few days after all he put into it. Amazing! *more fangirling*
The new song has been my jam today!!!
What an ear worm !!
Love everything about these performances…….Mirrors and DRA….. Awesome and Glorious !!!
Can NOT WAIT to see him tour!!
Thanks Abs for the MP3’s!!!
It’s my jam today too, and I copied out the words from the subtitles:
A voice wants to tell me something
I won’t deny that I can’t lie
I hadn’t noticed the void that was in me
I never thought that now
I’d find this part of me
Now I understand why I’m here
Though you are gone,
Your influence can still be felt
I see in your eyes my reflection
Something you’re trying to tell me
You haven’t left me alone
although for a time I was lost
Something so unexpected has led me to you
In the memories, you live
David said he started writing this on his mission? Maybe being in Latin America helped him reconnect with his roots so to speak judging from the lyrics. The chorus and “oh-ohs” are so catchy.
IT, oh yeah!!
Beautiful soulful Mirrors cover, catchy new Spanish song, with a dash of dance.
Life is good. You are the man D! Agree peppertara, he owned it!
Thanks marin for the lyrics, and Abrra again for mp3’s.
Is there a place I can send a thank-you letter to Studio C for picking a song for D. with 6 jumps in it that also required doing an impression of David Lee Roth? 🙂
(childish?) (sorry) (i lost it)
Marin, “overwhelmed?” …..I can’t even formulate a thought yet…I’m scattered all over trying to scan photos, play & replay vids…and please, as I scrolled down to post this…the BABY PHOTO came into view…aiy yay yiiiiiii!
I was holed up in a blizzard this past weekend at my mom’s without internet, (and I KNEW this was happening…but. i. had. NO. ideaaaaa….!!), so I am only now able to even try to get up to speed.
Therefore, just for the record….if I never come back to formulate a “comment” in time on this post…DO NOT mistake this for me NOT CARING, (in case anyone besides ME cares about this) lol. But I just may be stuck in the Vortex for a while before coming back……..
the swagger in the Spanish song is David 3.0. He still may be figuring it all out, evolving, cryptic with us, mixed messages about the past….but on some level, at least one thing hit me watching the first video….this guy has ALWAYS preferred “showing us” to telling us anything…from first look here, it appears to me…he came back and showed us.
Ok…goin’ in for more.
ps. Welcome Back to the stage, David James Archuleta.
pps. TOfan…my thoughts exactly….why weren’t we there?!!!! sigh.
Marin…thank you for the English! yay.
Although I admit…it’s always fun to “feel” it first and imagine what he’s singing about without knowing the words. (I can’t lean too much on my Freshman Spanish kicking in…I got as far as “I think he’s saying “Never did I think, at this time….something…?” lol.)
LOL TOfan…”What the what whaaaaa?!” is right… David Lee JUMP?!! omg. what is going on herrrrre….
(ps. notice how many times I “haven’t commented” yet?)
ROFLOLOL amb4da! I was wondering where you were… thought we might need to send the paramedics! hahaha
“this guy has ALWAYS preferred “showing us” to telling us anything…from first look here, it appears to me…he came back and showed us.” <— THIS!!!!!
Just checkin’ in to the ArchuWorld. Holy Freaking Mega EEEPPS! Speechless. Like fine wine, David’s art intensifies exponentially with age. Dang, in 7 more years, he’ll be a registered lethal weapon. 😀
Kiz!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
Oh No!! I just realized it’s Lent Eve! That means no more SA until Easter? What with ALL THIS going on, and I’m sure at least ONE more earth shattering blog from the OS in our future!! How will we survive without your humor?!
Far be it from me to impose on your spiritual journey but can’t ya just give up chocolate (or pistachios?!!), or caffein, carbs, something else, like the rest of us?!!!
We’ve survived 3 years of no DA tour…we’ll just squee amongst ourselves while your gone…but it sure will not be as funny.
Good Lenten Season, TOfan. 🙂
oops, meant to say… maybe u just said you’re giving up Twitter…I forget.
ok, done. 🙂
hahahaha, you’re too quick there, amb4da!
Yes, I am giving up David again for Lent *gulp* but I just put a new post up now & have a few pre-scheduled… silly stuff, you know, the usual, lol. … yes, please squee amongst yourselves! For those of us who can’t! LOLOL
