A Picture Inspires a Thousand Words ~ David Archuleta

Posted by Angelica on Friday, February 24, 2012

I find this ex-treeeemly interesting. You would have to know the small town of Vernal, Utah, to really know why I’m amazed. It’s famous for it’s Dinosaur quarry, but that’s about it (well, and now Betty’s Cafe). It’s about a 3-4 hr. drive from SLC on the central-eastern side of the state. I just really wonder what David was doing out there in this small rural, farming town. They have a LDS Temple there that is a beautiful one, perhaps that’s why he went out. Because, then later, he tweeted about being in the ortho’s office and watching a movie on the ceiling screen. He just keeps his motor humming, on that fine tuned and well oiled machine, all the time. :)

“Betty’s Cafe head chef Lynda Oaks held up a menu that former American Idol contestant and soon-to-be missionary David Archuleta signed on his stop in Vernal on Thursday. A server at the cafe Dave Everett said he was impressed by Archuleta, and said he doesn’t see too many celebrities in the cafe. Regular customer of Betty’s Nancy Jensen Birchell said she spoke with the singer during breakfast and he admitted that he had visited the Vernal Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during his visit. Birchell said he was dressed in Sunday best and very nonchalant. “Who knew you’d see David Archuleta in Betty’s,” Birchell said. The pop singer later sent a message to his more than 2,200,000 followers Facebook about the Roosevelt and Duchesne restaurant China Star. Archuleta announced in December that he would serve a two-year proselytizing mission for the LDS Church.”

Tawna:

That picutre (in the link) of him at the table, with the sun all hazy around him, there – in the middle of nowhere – … it has a surreal feeling to it. Especially if you know how off the beaten track this is. Waaaaayyyyy out there in the middle of going to or from somewhere else.

He just sits there. Eating. Nonchalantly, as they say.

I don’t know of any picture or setting I have seen recently that so captures the elusive essence of DA like this one does.

Bluesky

He blows me away with all that he does. Grateful for his music and example. :D

MunkFOD

I find it so interesting that he is there alone and yet not alone. He is so enveloped in the light of goodness that it makes my heart pound and stand still at the same time. The photo is of value. It is so David — in this world, but not of this world.

Tawna

For me, it is like the out-of-focus image that I see here, matches with crystal clarity his image in my heart. He is, and always will be, just David.

Bluesky

That is the quality that I love most about him.

As I said above: I don’t know of any picture or setting I have seen recently that so captures the elusive essence of DA like this one somehow does.

“Beam me up, Scotty.”

Somehow this silhouette, in silence, without seeing the good-looks, without hearing the voice or being (benignly) beguiled by his open manner and ready smile, speaks volumes — If by “screaming” you mean it seems loud, I agree. Loud has never been so quiet.

Meditation on David:
I remember one time there was a picture of DA in a cross legged sitting pose that spurred us on to many a discussion about his qualities of spirituality. But this unassuming image seems to capture a feeling, an essence, a tide of color and light that quietly engulfs me.

Bluesky

Bluesky, yes loud, demanding my attention, bringing, no pulling me into his space, yes engulfing me. You’re good.

And that picture is good. And David is one of a kind.

Djafan

That pic is so out of this world. I was just thinking, if we didn’t know it was David in that pic, would we know it was him? Of course we would. He has the most strikingly beautiful and recognizable silhouette I’ve ever seen.

Bebereader

Check out the artist Jan Vermeer. This looks like one of his. (Except for the ketchup)

Poof

Bluesky, Thank you for being in my David world. This:
Somehow this silhouette, in silence, without seeing the good-looks, without hearing the voice or being (benignly) beguiled by his open manner and ready smile, speaks volumes — If by “screaming” you mean it seems loud, I agree. Loud has never been so quiet.
He knows he is never alone even though he is by himself. This picture speaks so much about him. For some reason, I am comforted by it. I’m not sad. I don’t feel like he’s about to be lonely. I don’t feel like crying looking at it. I’m gonna be OK. He’s gonna be OK. Phew!

Angelofdja

This picture had me gulping in air, and waiting to exhale. It is as astonishingly beautiful as the man himself.

Skydancer

The photograph, so soft and understated, reveals rather than conceals what lies within…a soul of pure beauty, brilliance and light. He gets up on a Thursday morning and drives to a Temple well off the beaten path. It is not the first time he has done this. For David, it is just another day in paradise.

“Nandito Ako” Starring David Archuleta as Josh Bradley Airs Today!

Posted by Angelica on Monday, February 20, 2012

First I just want to say, “Welcome Home David Archuleta” and welcome home Kari too!  I enjoyed their stay in the Philippines almost as much as they did, but it’s good to know they are safely on the ground and in the bosom of their families again.

Second, today is the debut of the first installment of Nandito Ako.  There is a live stream here, God willing and the stream don‘t fail to rise to the occasion.  After weeks of TV5’s whipping his fans into a frenzy all over the world, there had better be.  If not, there will be a reckoning and I reckon you all know what I mean by that.  If you think there was weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth in the Nandito Ako trailers, you ain’t seen nothing yet.  Hell nor any woman hath no fury like a person with ODD scorned.

We will not be denied.  We have a personal invitation from the man himself.

I need the Emo-David.  I need the bunny.  I need the hair pulling, the right hook, the head whacking, getting locked in a room and thrown out of the house along with all the pushing, shoving and over-the-top melodrama.  And I need the melody of Nandito Ako sung by the Voice and the tender love scenes between Josh, Anya, and Holly.  I need to cry with him and I need a happy ending with a smiling David..er, Josh.  I need it all and I need it now.  Not because I care about soap operas, but because I care about him and this endeavor we have lived vicariously through for weeks.  So proud of him and his willingness to try what he didn’t know he could do, and see him exceed all expectations time and time again.  I need to be there.  This is my prayer.

Prayers also from The Voice for David on the loss of his Great Grandmamma, Isabel, and for all the family and a very Happy 13th Birthday to his little sister, Amber.

David Archuleta Launches New Clothing and Hair Product Lines!

Posted by bebereader on Friday, February 17, 2012

Singer/songwriter, best-selling Author, Humanitarian and Actor, David Archuleta can now add Endorser for clothing and hair products line to his resume.  Just a few hours ago at a musical fashion show at The Trinoma Activity Center in The Philippines, David launched both a new clothing line for Bench Clothing and a new hair products line for Fix Professional Hair Styling Products.

A huge thank you to Norms, who was able to make a Ustream available for the fans back home.  After an impressive slide show on a large screen, in which David modeled Bench fashions, he sang five songs, “Nandito Ako”, “Touch My Hand”, the “Good Place/Let It Be” medley, “Crush” and then “A Thousand Miles” after the fans chanted “one more song!”.

David carried the entire concert portion of the show himself and the emotional connection he has with the fans was palpable.  There even seemed to be an element of  farewell and appreciation, in my humble opinion.  Maybe you’ll agree if we’re lucky enough to see the performances on youtube.

~David Archuleta ~ A Work Of Art – Inside & Out

Posted by Angelica on Tuesday, February 14, 2012

A Masterpiece

By MT

When God created men
They were not all the same.
Each from a different palette
So many of them came

But every now and then
A special one is made,
Painted with touches of color
From the beauty that God gave.

From the dewy green of grass
He’s given him his eyes.
With the color of cherry blossoms
He painted lips to smile.

From the softly falling snow
He found the color for his teeth.
And for his skin, a special treat,
The dew and color of peach.

And from the blackness of the night
His locks of hair are hewn.
And then he gave him breath
So with golden voice he’d croon.

His heart was made with special care
From the garden of the rose.
In deepest red he fashioned it
With love and care and hope.

When giving him his inner light,
He reached into the sun.
He knew this one would shine so bright
He’d be known by everyone.

As he gazed upon this creature,
God knew he’d cast a spell.
He’d made this one a masterpiece.
He’d used his palette well.

Happy Valentine’s Day from David Archuleta!

“Nandito Ako” trailer – What Are Your Favorite Parts? ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Friday, February 10, 2012

picture credit: Carlo Valenzona

Since the trailer for “Nandito Ako” was released several days ago I’ve watched it more times that I care to admit. I’m mesmerized by the fast pace, the Tagalog language, the intriguing storyline and mostly by seeing David in his first serious acting role. Staff Writer Betsy, casually asked me what my favorite part of the trailer was. It wasn’t a difficult question but it’s hard to choose  just one so I came up with a few.

1.  The restaurant scene. Josh and Holly are sitting at a table and Josh tells Holly that she can speak in Filipino if she wants. Holly then asks Josh if he understands it. Josh makes a cute sound like “oh uh”. Holly, with a big smile, tells Josh that he is amazing.

2.  Josh sings “Nandito Ako” outdoors with a few of the members of the cast around him.  I can’t get this melodious song out of my head.

3. “You get out of my house! You get out of my house!”, Holly’s mother screams at Josh, who retorts “Let me explain!”

I could go on and on but now it’s your turn. :)

Thanks Betsy, for the inspiration. :)
