David Archuleta ~ Man of a Thousand Faces
Posted by dakgal on Sunday, July 29, 2012
It has been kept a deep dark, well-guarded secret that on December 28, 1990, Lupe Archuleta gave birth to dodecatuplets.
Consider if you will, this all too familiar refrain that was Marlie’s #51 comment on Angelica’s recent post, Cover Me.
“The photos – OMG – how many David’s are there? The man of a thousand (gorgeous) faces.”
There is not ONE person in this world who can change in looks so much–in the snap of a camera. Near as I can figure there are 11 identical and one fraternal (the one they used on the CFTH album and the new album BEGIN.) How can one person go from the cuddly little boy look–to the boy next door look –to the hot smexy man look with a face dripping with emotion? No one person can go from a tousled haired boy wearing the Dennis The Menace look in a striped T-shirt—looking like he just took his dog for a ride in the wagon, to a steamy, suave, sophisticated ( I’ll make your knees buckle) young man dressed in a tuxedo—probably in a matter of hours!!
Now I think I have identified four of them–David–Ricky–Archie and Josh. Am keeping a keen eye out for the other eight.
This is only common sense–how else could he have kept up the rigorous schedule he has had at times–and the international travel-jet lag–without even a mini bag under one eye? Always as fresh as a daisy. Hah!
HEY! I didn’t just get off the pickle boat—the banana boat maybe. Some of the media even report him as being in two places at once–which adds fuel to my fire!!
I figure that there are two in Chile—-one at home perfecting the guitar playing (when this one comes out, be prepared for a grand-mal-spazz). Elsewhere in the world, another is polishing up and learning new dance and swagger/strut moves and leg lifts –to be used at random–one is off writing songs—one is out scouting out restaurants–all this is impossible for one person to do. Lord only knows what the rest are up to, but I’m sure we will find out in due time—there is a long ways to go yet.
I’m sure some people in Chile are suspicious too. They are at a meeting or church talking with a rather shy, soft-spoken, humble young man—then he is called upon to sing—he leaves the room for a moment, to check his teeth for debris. He comes back out confident and in charge of every minute—the piano starts playing and when he belts out the first few notes, they all suck in a collective gasp and as the norm—forget to exhale—but they are thinking “ THIS CAN’T BE THE SAME PERSON!”
Then there is the not so small matter of all those shoes and clothes David has amassed –very rarely is he seen wearing the same shoes or clothes twice.
So!!! Where are they???
Divided by twelve—THAT’S where they are!!!
And! Who grows their hair that fast in one week? I could go on and on, but you might think I’m nuts.
Or AM I?
I happen to have a VERY RELIABLE SOURCE.
