He appears to be on a road trip with Jazzy & Amber.

Dude just can’t stay away. ๐Ÿ™‚ He must’ve run out of the maple syrup Ref & I gave him in Portland, lol.

Now if he’d only DO A CONCERT HERE!!!!

(Sorry, just had to get that out.)


Countdown to #Leo begins! Perfect, it’s World Lion Day! 15 days to gooooooo!

“Where is it? Where is it? I need it NOW!” *roar*





Song titles:

  • Other Things in Sight
  • Spotlight Down
  • I’m Ready
  • Someone to Love


Have you guys listened to the snippets yet??? Are you going to??

I’m loving the soulfulness I’m hearing so far… especially on Other Things in Sight, Someone to Love and I’m Ready.

We’ve heard I’m Ready live and live is usually my favourite but love love LOVE the arrangement in the snippet with the harmony, YESSS!!!!

And I LOOOOOVE the Other Things in Sight snippet and already know I’m going to love the whole thing because it’s a Trent Dabbs collab (heh, that rhymes)… and how do I know that??


Remember this little convo? (Yes, I am a supahfreak, in a completely benevolent way, I swear ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Leo explained

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 1.14.06 PM.png.


Everyone keeps asking why this next David Archuleta EP is called “Leo,” but I know exactly why.

*cough*wikipedia*cough* *cough*sortof*cough*

Turns out, Leo is one of the constellations of the zodiac, lying between Cancer the crab to the west, Virgo the maiden to the east, and the lesser known Simon the snake to the north and Constantine the unwashed to the south.

Its name is Latin for lion, and to the ancient Greeks represented the Nemean Lion killed by the mythical Greek hero Heracles (known to the ancient Romans as Hercules) as one of his 12 labors.

matadortumblr_mk5b4lbgu11r0k70yo1_250.gifThese labors included wearing polyester matador tights, getting groped by Priscilla Presley and touring with Chikeze.

Leo remains one of the 88 modern constellations today, and one of the most easily recognizable due to the way it glows and keeps turning up on iCarly reruns.

The lion’s mane and shoulders also form an shape known as “The Sickle,” which to modern observers may resemble a backwards “question mark” or just a random line that means nothing at all.

Putting this here because I can.

Leo contains many bright stars, many of which were individually identified by the ancients. There are four stars of first or second magnitude, which render this constellation especially prominent:

1) Vocalist maximus is a blue-white main-sequence star emanating a brightness that blinds alien beings from 6,53423243 light-years away.

2) Pocketsize minimalus is a binary star that recedes from view when not on stage but flares 100-fold as soon as the asteroid Microphonus comes near.

3) Epsilon fiercelon is a double star visible in binoculars, especially from Higher Ground.

4) Theta sweatyfeetamus is a star best ignored altogether.

Modern astronomers excised a group of stars that once made up the lion’s furry chin area and used them to form the new constellation — Scrufftastic Hummenahummena — although there was precedent for that designation among the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Leo contains many bright galaxies — made up of a cloud of hydrogen, helium gas and empanada steam — that have a radiant close to the Gamma Gamma DavidIloveyouforevermarrymeorIllkeepwriting243234wordcommentsonyourIG formation.

In Greek mythology,ย Leo was identified as the Nemean Lion, a fierce beast that would take girls as hostages to its cave by singing Crush and grabbing their unsuspecting hands, until Hercules stepped in and threw them the setlist as a distraction.

So there, in a nutshell, is a complete explanation of why the next EP is called Leo.

Or, all the songs could be from The Lion King.

His superpowers on full display… give the boy a cape already!!!

Seriously though, this smile keels me… it’s sure not a VIP smile… it looks to be a 100% fanboy smile ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Great to see him in his element, having fun with like-minded peeps…..



Am I wrong to hope he’s doing some singing there and we will get some vids or at least clips?? A full set of Disney songs that we know he loves and can sing the heck out of??

I know. I know. We’re getting another EP in a few weeks and (hopefully) some tour dates, so I will refrain from my first impulse (of pure greed ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and keep expectations low, as per usual. It’s sure worked out well so far, I must say. #blessed

Your eyes don’t lie


Will just leave this here for youze guyz.

I love the confident, direct, “knowing” expression on his face with just the hint of a dimple.

As if to say, “I know who I am. I know where I’m going. I know I look dang good.”

“Rain on my shows, take away my sugar, delay my flights… nothin’s gonna keep me down … especially if there’s free food involved.”

No idea who the photographer is or why the picture was taken, but I’d bet my entire collection of David key chains that if this gaze was on an album cover, no one could resist buying it.

My actual reaction…

… to realizing Crush came out 9… NINE! … years ago.



… to realizing this was the cover for the single:




… to noticing how many versions of Crush I have on my iPod



… to counting up how many times I gifted the single



… to realizing that the lovely & amazing Refnaf & Janey & a bunch of other fortunate ones got to witness this first-ever live performance of Crush.


I think my favourite Crush performance was this acoustic one… love love LOVE the ending!

So how about you guys?? What’s your fave Crush performance?

Awesome avec sauce

I forgot how amazing these VIP perfs are… bless you, Miss Shell, for capturing them!

Unplugged versions

makes me a little sad he refers to having to make TOSOD as a “setback” ROFLOL

Plugged in

With the full band (where you can see his superhero shield ๐Ÿ™‚ ย … and learn the backstory to Who I Am … omigosh the ending, he needs to add this into his show!


The ending there too… wow, just wow!


I am a 100% fan of unplugged but I honestly love both versions of both.

How about you guys??

Official-ish @DavidArchie Bored Game


Hola, sweet lovelies.

In the interest of keeping us all uber-productive while we wait for new David Archuleta music and tour news, here’s a little activity you can play alone or with Budchuletas.

The rules are simple… roll the dice and let the emotional rollercoaster of being an Archie fan Begin.! (see what I did there? ๐Ÿ™‚ )

It’s not only super fun and educational but will also quell withdrawal DTs from the phenomenal Orion Tour.

Game on!!!


Here’s a link to the lovely & amazing Tina’s Say Me St. Louis audio… a little too not over it… and the mp3 that Angel Abrra has made for us all.
the audio for this spontaneously came up on my iTunes, so I just went with it… as one does… and wow, just wow, forgot how incredible it is….

How about you guys?? Any older songs you’ve “rediscovered” lately??
