Random Deep Thoughts From David Archuleta

It’s starting to look like an Archu-drought for the first time in a long time. When  the word came back that Elder Archuleta wanted us to focus less on him and more on our own commitments, it was not a problem for me.  The biggest joy in my life is helping with this fan site. I don’t know if I could sit on the sidelines. Being a super fan is my commitment of choice. It is a therapeutic exercise, I might even say a challenge, to find things to write about while he is away.

Lately I have been missing @DavidArchie’s tweets. We do get updates on his music releases and surprise pictures from his manager’s camera, but it’s just not the same vibe. There is nothing like hearing from the man, himself. David has a way of sharing his experiences. Sharing his zest for life that makes us feel as if we are standing beside him as he tweets. I long for the real thing, ya know what I mean?

@DavidArchie announced his leap to twitter on (drum roll) April 28, 2009.

David Archuleta Confirms Official Twitter

From Just Jared Jr fan site:
David shared, “I think it’s a great way to communicate with people and I get to respond to people sometimes. Just to let you know the random thoughts in my head…it’s fun that way. I know it doesn’t make sense a lot of times (laughs).”

Here is a clip from JoshSkinnerMusic’s interview with MTV’s Jim Cantiello about David Archuleta and Twitter.

He took to twitter in such an honest and natural manner, it makes us feel like he is talking to us-personally! I have said a few times that I bet we get a David tweet from the plane as he is landing back in Utah when his mission is done in 2014.

I remember when he made his announcement. One of the first things I did was copy his twitter timeline messages. Times were uncertain and I feared his account would close. I am glad now, because there is a whole year missing from the timeline as of today. I suppose there are space considerations and there is a cut off around April 2010. His twitter timeline is a history of his experiences with travel, concerts, fans, songwriting, food, and philosophy.

Many in show business use social media to promote only their own career happenings. He communicates with his fans which helps us stay connected. David feels inspired by other artists and uses his tweets to mention a concert he has attended or a new song he has enjoyed. Everyone benefits from hearing new music, right?

Here’s a song for the one who stole my heart, and ran so far that cupid couldn’t catch her – awesome We the Kings song!”

@DavidArchie 4 Feb 10
Awesome show by Owl City! Had good times.

@DavidArchie 16 Jun 11
Left t0tally inspired last night after watching @thecivilwars show. What a duo!

@DavidArchie 2 Feb 10
Woo hoo! RT @realbrookewhite Everyone lets go get it! RT: @CarlySmithson: Bury me alive just went live on iTunes !!!!!!!!

Often, he shares what is happening in the moment. We get a glimpse of daily life, just being himself. There is less of a feeling of separation when he shares the small and large events that make up his day. AT154

In the chair at the haircut place getting a haircut! Ah, refreshing!

@DavidArchie 8 Aug 10
Went on a really nice hike up a quiet trail. I need to do that a lot more often.

@DavidArchie 15 Mar 10
Changing the kitty litter box. Exciting, I know.

@DavidArchie 6 Oct 10
Warming up my voice in the car. Driver says “sounds like an alien spaceship.” Haha I guess it kinda does.

Responding to rumors! Oh how we fan the flames when David is seen near a young female. *GASP* We only want the best for him, right? 76-001

@DavidArchie 19 Feb 10
@OrganicArchie Haha! If I had one then maybe it’d be true! That was the Real soccer game I performed at and I was with my friends!

@DavidArchie 19 Feb 10
@OrganicArchie Oh man that was hilarious, I just showed my mom and sent it to that girl too! I guess we happened to be standing close huh?

Funny hijinks on airplanes! How interesting that he loves to ride roller coasters as long as they are not 20,000 feet off the ground. cdavid72

@DavidArchie 17 Mar 10
On the airplane… There are a lot of cheerleaders and volleyball players on board… Uh… lol.

@DavidArchie 17 Mar 10
Now running away from all the cheerleaders and volleyball players! Ahh!!

@DavidArchie 5 Feb 10
Oh my heck, this plane is TINY!! It only has 9 rows and has the propellers on it!

@DavidArchie 5 Feb 10
Well that was exciting. It was like a roller coaster ride, and only like 7 people on the plane.

@DavidArchie 11 Nov 10
15 hour flight tonight. No phone or computer for a whole day. Time to just do some thinking, pondering, and reading :)

What was it about learning to change the oil (or drive a stick shift) that caused much speculation by fans. I think we knew something was up? 5

@DavidArchie 29 Jul 11
Learning how to change the oil and spark plugs on the car. Taking a break eating some really good enchiladas though.

@DavidArchie 21 Jan 10
Sometimes I wish I could just wear the same thing every day. Cartoons do it. It’d make things a lot easier.

@DavidArchie 6 Apr 10
Back in LA. Nice to have sunny weather again. Practicing my Spanish with the driver! Haha. He’s really cool.

Ah the food tweets! David Archuleta possibly has the most varied taste in food of anyone I know. 75

@DavidArchie 9 Oct 10
At dinner there was a homecoming group & a girl turned & said “You look exactly like David Archuleta! You must get that a lot huh”

@DavidArchie 9 Oct 10
She later turned again & said “you’re cool too though, you don’t have to be David Archuleta to be cool.” Lol well thanks.

@DavidArchie 19 Oct 10
Looking at food magazines. Makes me wanna learn how to cook! It’d be cool to make your own food and add the flavors and stuff.

@DavidArchie 10 Nov 10
Just had a really good Brazillian organic granola acai bowl. Has kind of a long name.

@DavidArchie 26 Jan 10
In the studio working with @theMessengersNA . Had some Israeli food for lunch for my first time. it was good!

A few hair tweets! It looks like a party. Asking fans for advice is nothing new for David. cdavid36

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
I think it’s time for me to get a haircut today. thoughts or opinions?

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
@CaarlaaCaarteer Haha I know I don’t want to cut it too short. Just a trim so it doesn’t fall down and look like a bowl on my head.

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
@xoPaMxo96 Longerish? haha. I don’t know how to style it when it’s longerish though.

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
Put up a new video blog! That way you can see why I’m trying to change how my hair looks lol

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
@lexeebel Oh I bet that would be really attractive… lol.

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
All right enough with the mohawks! lol

@DavidArchie 24 Feb 10
@xthe_truthx3 Oh man one time when I was 15 the haircut ladies forced me to put red highlights in my hair! Good thing you couldn’t tell!

@DavidArchie 6 Mar 10
I don’t think I can handle this no haircut thing for much longer.

@DavidArchie 16 Mar 10
@CarolinaGyrl00 no haircut yet. Idk what to do with it so just keeping the beanies on lol.

And last but not least, I will end his tweet feast, from the random to the deep.77

“Think of a car driving through the night. The headlights only go 100 to 200 ft. forward, and you can make it all the way from…

@DavidArchie 8 Mar 10
California to New York driving through the dark, because all you have to see is the next 200 feet. And that’s how life tends to..

@DavidArchie 8 Mar 10
Unfold before us. If we just trust that the next 200 ft. Will unfold after that, your life will keep unfolding, and eventually…

@DavidArchie 8 Mar 10
Get you to the destination of whatever it is you truly want…”

We wait patiently for the headlights in the distance that will deliver David Archuleta back to us safe and sound.

Note:

As of this writing, @DavidArchie has approximately 1,250,000 followers on Twitter. Despite a 2 year absence from his career, the number rises daily. He  continues to draw attention in the industry as well as attract new fans by releasing music and videos while he is away on a mission in Chile for the LDS Church.

“Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
