The Christmas Carol that more or less clued me in to his “holy” plans and, mostly, what his music journey has meant to him. Still loved his tesitfyin’ without, you know, TESTIFYIN’! :)
Here’s a photo of letters for David, posted on his Twitter account. Funny, but as much as I have missed him, I hadn’t thought to send a letter (maybe b/c I’m busy blogging about him). Have any of you sent David letters since he’s been away?
Speaking of David’s Twitter, I’ve been missing his tweets. He had a wonderful knack of not telling us anything really important but insightful all the same! He was sooooo good about keeping things innocuous and protecting his privacy even as he sought to keep himself in touch with fans. He had a way of randomly responding to his followers (and then slaying a horde of them in the process!) without dissolving into anything crass or offensive.
Okay, so there was that one exception when certain fans were offended at some tweets that implied he was uncomfortable about attending an event at a gay club. (‘Member that scandal?)
But more or less, David kept things pretty low-key and pretty tame.
I miss him all the more in light of other high-profile celebrities posting various meltdowns and the like on Twitter. First, Chris Brown’s vulgar tirade, in which he didn’t have sense to ignore or block someone calling him a “worthless piece of s____,” and then Nicki Minaj, who has been showing the world that her skin is seriously too thin!
I used to like my celebrities when they were no where near a TweetDeck. But then, I guess I’m measuring them against a Twitter pro like David! :)
Funny how I was missing David like mad and then this new music video pops up. :)
How did I miss this earlier? Anyways, I guess David’s team is learning to anticipate our needs.
What do you think? David always takes me to a happy place. :) But what’s with the audio being out-of-sync with the visual?
I can’t explain it, but when I drove home from work this evening, I found myself missing David fiercely! I didn’t realize how much he had spoiled us as fans with his regular tweets, vlogs, and occasional appearances and live performances that someone would record and post online.
Talk about taking David’s output for granted! What wouldn’t I give for a new vlog right about now. :(
So, I was wondering: is it just me, or are there enough of us missing David? Or have some of you moved on?
Please take my latest poll! :)
What I saw over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend:
The Life of Pi
This movie is truly astounding and highly recommended! It’s the kind of movie I’m sure David would have loved – especially in 3-D! :)
Now that the holiday season is under way, I thought I would end the week (or start the weekend, whichever way you look at it) by highlighting a Christmas carol – as sung by none other than David Archuleta! :)
This particular performance has a special place in my heart because it was my first time hearing The Voice live, and I will always cherish this encore performance of “The Chestnut Song”! :P
Hope you’ll be enjoying lots of turkey today and plenty of Thanksgiving “yesteryear” memories, like this one! :)
