David Archuleta and the Law of Compensation
Posted by bluesky4home on Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Dear Mr. David Archuleta, aka Elder;
Was watching you sing on you tube the other day (what is it with ALL the you tube vids? Like… when do you get anything DONE?), and I said to myself: “That guy really likes to sing. Maybe he should consider making a career out of it. Or something. You know, pursue some op-tions.”
A friend of mine told me to put a bug in your ear. Heh, much as I would like to be able to do that… you know, per-form that little function… I am not planning on a trip to Chile any time soon. And bugs are not known for their reliable ability to communicate understandably, they being a more “proceed with caution” messenger service.
Flexing my knuckles and facing my keyboard therefore, I proceed in presenting a case:
So the angels (“good fairies”?) deemed it wise to give you a warped vocal chord? It seems there have been some com-pen-sa-tor-y measures taken. Consider for instance, that your face is remarkably symmetrical. Remarkably. In fact, remarks have been made. Just sayin’. And please, who sees a vocal chord, anyway?
Short in the “tall” division? True. You are short, small, little. I get it.
But, I get the suspicion, watching some of these vids, that if you like, open your mouth and sing – you know – with feeling, there is a good possibility that peeps are not going to notice anyone else in the room anyway. You should try it. Maybe stand on a table, or somethin’. You know, just to get the hang of it.
Hey, everybody needs a “signature”, something that people can re-cognize. I wouldn’t worry about it. They do keep oxygen tanks in public places, ya know. In fact, I’ve seen peeps in the audiences being supplied with oxygen. So, it’s covered.
(Besides, although it doesn’t seem to be you’re thing, there are those that like a little heavy breathing.)
All in all, I think you might have a chance. You got this – you know – this big heart. They aren’t going to know what to do with that, true. It doesn’t really market, per se, but a handicap? Look at it this way kid, having something they can’t package means “no limits”. I like the sound of that.
This “bug” comes to you more or less anonymously, from a faithful viewer.
Go for it. Just sayin’.
