Thirst in an Archudrought and Then…No Air

Posted by djafan on Saturday, February 6, 2010

For those suffering the ravages of an Archudrought,  Miami this week was an oasis in the desert.

The last two days have been like a refreshing shower after a dust storm.  I have been trying to cope with my own David-deprivation by reading and re-reading the posts here and going to The Voice Unplugged to chat with and get support from others sufferers.  All of us hoping against hope that the Jordin Sparks Experience would give us a drop or a morsel to get us through till a book signing tour with maybe a song or two.

I signed up for the ustream and was there an hour early hoping for a glimpse of David.  No David at first but it wasn’t a bad thing.  I learned so much about the gift of hearing and how many don’t enjoy what I take for granted daily.  Heard some great stories from those who not only give from their pockets but also of their time.  I would like to have seen David’s response when the children were being fitted with hearing aids and the children’s reaction to sound.  Here is a link to the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s homepage.  http://www.starkeyhearingfoundation.org/hearing-missions.php

I was so glad Jordin invited David.  I have always liked her and now I’ve gained a huge respect for her.  She is egoless.   She had David up front and center with her and when she introduced her friends she looked right at him.  David appeared to be her guest, not a sidekick.  He was at her side throughout the events smiling and looking so happy, swollen cheek and all.

Back in the saddle and up on the stage again, David sang Crush and one of his best performances of Apologize yet, and that is saying something.  First thing I noticed was the change in his voice.  Could his voice have possibly improved since the 2nd of December?  Deeper and even richer if that’s conceivable.  Jordin sang her set and then “WHAM,” right in the gut!  I had been so thirsty and now, I’m having trouble breathing.  David left me with “No Air”.  And he sucker-punched me twice in one day.  The vocals, the runs, the swagger up to the stage, the tie, the shirt, the pants, the moves.  This week, lest we forget, he proved once again what a phenomenal artist and person he is.  Now that we have survived the Archudrought a little longer by slaking our thirst in Miami, we face a tougher ordeal ahead.  Will we survive The Voice’s 3rd album tour as he takes it to the next level and possibly busts loose with some sweltering dance moves?  I get breathless just thinking about it.

    SB, we really are a fortunate lot, the worldwide fans of David, holding on “with no air” for the next stage of this balloon ride as we head off into the stratosphere. Will need to amp it up to catch the visual as well as the audio. What we do for David!

    FG-Now what was that about that special connector? Already figured out the special one to hook up the audio from my computer into my super duper stereophonic sound system (hmm,that actually sounds dated). Have an old baby tv that plays video tapes (yes, I know, archaic) that has audio and video connections up front. So now you’re sayin there is special connector. I am but one of the lame lurking technology challenged cadre. (Admit it people, you know YOU are out there. Don’t lie.)

    Thank you for an interesting review of the Miami event. I have a sure fire way to avoid missing any “drips” of water during the drought.

    You can find me with my head tipped to the side,mouth open, and tongue extended under the David “faucet”.

    I was discussing something I spotted in the later No Air video. David has something dangling from his belt buckle. Like a charm, maybe? Trendsetter David! I hunted around trying to find something similar. Here is a belt charm I found to explain what I am talking about. Its 2inches tall. The one in the video looks “dangly’ like a small chain. Is this a new fashion accessory?

    He’s been tweeting about not being able to figure out what melody is in his head. Uh David, time for a vlog. I’m sure if he hums a few bars to us, within seconds, one of his more than 300,000 twitter followers would have the answer.

    blisskasden (11 hours ago)

    Is there anyone left who does not think that David is the most dynamic performer in the music business? He probably rehearsed this classic performance for about 5 minutes. Jordin has performed this song hundreds of times. There is no difference in the quality of their performances, and that’s being kind to Jordin.

    Also, if David gets any better looking, he’s going to have trouble getting anyone to sing a duet with him. If he grows to 6′, he’ll be tweeting us from the runway in Milan.

    Hi everybody.I think I am suffiently recovered from Westbury to put a coherent sentence together. Like all of you,I have been waiting for something to sink my teeth into since David’s epic Christmas tour. What I love about David is that,as a fan, you can never let your guard down. Just when we thought that we’d have to wait until his next CD, his next tour, or a hoped for book signing, voila, David hits the stage in Miami,and makes the Super Bowl seem like a friendly game of gin rummy.

    Thanks, Djafan, for bringing my comment on Youtube over here. David continues to surpass any expectations we have of him. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought that this was David’s song, and Jordin was invited to do the “girl” part for this performance only. Unlike his concerts, when we are overwhelmed by one great performance after another, this one-time performance, like “Contigo”, is more of a “gem” that can be enjoyed again and again so it becomes a unique and memorable experience.

    As for his physical appearance, I wasn’t kidding about the Milan reference. The modeling industry may have to rethink their minimum height standards in order to accommodate David. Whoever manufactures those pants he wore on that stage needs to get David on a runway ASAP, whether it’s in Milan or Hackenssack, N.J.

    Congrats on this terrific site. It’s nice to see so many familiar folks here who love and respect David.

    After an exhaustive investigation the thing “dangling” from David in the NO AIR video is nonetheless his “zipper”! You can only see it when he kind of bends over which in my opinion is the top part of the zipper. Please feel free to go ahead and do your own “exhaustive study”. Whew!

    Regarding “L’affaire UDO” (Unidentified Dangling Object), I’ve examined the evidence under my handy electron microscope and, alas, Pabuckie is correct. It’s his zipper, dang it. Having worn a pair of pants or two in my time, when the pants are fitting a little, shall we say, “too well”, it tends to expose part of the zipper.

    Surely,no one could have thought that David, of all people, would be displaying any jewelry, etc. anywhere near that area of his body.
    Frankly, he doesn’t need to, if you get my drift.

    Good day/night and TC everyone!

    SandyBeaches, good to “see” you again. We met all too briefly at the Westbury VIP. I always enjoyed your commentary, whether we were in agreement or not, and I look forward to more of the same here.

    Abrra, your CD is my constant companion.
    Thanks again.

    Bliss…I know that I agreed with you more than with just about anyone and I always enjoyed your comments.

    Westbury was a brief meeting but we are all looking forward to the next tour and a big gathering…A finale can not be missed.

    I was browsing on YouTube recently. Is there anyone in the public eye that has more “tribute videos” devoted to him than David? If I didn’t have such an “issued computer” and the technological ability of a tse tse fly, I’d give one a whirl.

    I’ve enjoyed and been moved by any number of these videos, some created by the talented folks here.

    Props to my partner in Archu-crime, Pabuckie, for a great video on her first try.. When it comes to David, we’re all “looking through the eyes of love”.

    Posting prayer for SF…

    Dear lord,

    Please take care of David.
    Watch over him, protect him from all harm.
    Cloak him with your love and give him the strength to endure all that is thrown in his path.
    Give David the courage and guidance to say no to those who ask for more than he can reasonably give.
    Surround David with loving and supportive people who love him unconditionally as we, his devoted Archangels do.
    Separate David from those who have agendas other than for his well being.
    Give him rest when he feels weary.
    Give him stamina to sustain his hectic pace.
    Give him assurance when he feels doubt.
    Give him joy when he feels sad and never allow David to feel alone or lonely.
    Give us the wisdom to always do right by David.
    Help us support David so that it’s always in his best interest.
    CLOAK DAVID IN YOUR PROTECTIVE ARMS always and please keep David and his voice healthy & strong as he fulfills his Destiny which was written in his Book of Life before he was born.
    Though we may be unworthy Lord, we humbly pray. Amen

    David, have a good & restful night’s sleep with sweet & happy dreams. Thank you for all you do and for who you are. Keep with you all our love, support & prayers always. Contigo siempre! We will be with you always! TAKE CARE!

    And SF hoping and praying all is well with you…God Bless you.

    Good morning!

    Last night Bubbly asked me about a photograph she wanted. I must have copied her email incorrectly because it came back.

    Bubbly here it is. You can save it from this post.

    I just called to say I love you.

    It’s been so fun reading this this last two days. You all have me laugh out loud silly and I love it. I think we need to make David a belt charm and send it to him! If we tell him it’s a “chastity charm” and the proceeds go to VOICES WITH A CAUSE he might even wear it.

    j/k But does anybody else wonder when we get tweets from David about traffic if he is driving and tweeting? Prithee nay, David would not do that! Would he?

    I love Jordin Sparks and am so impressed with her poise and talent and love. And yes I do hold a special place in my heart for Robbie Benson somehow too. I had to pull it out and dust it off though. Last night I saw a promo for a remake of ICE CASTLES but surely it could not compare. In this month’s PSYCHOLOGY TODAY magazine there is an article about our early love experiences affecting us later on in life, and so it would make perfect sense that our crushes on a dark haired, sensitive young man with pretty eyes and talent would lead us all here again. .haha. I actually sat in the grocery store, reading the magazine and thinking about all of us, feeling a little more “normal” for a few minutes. And then i signed on and realized normalcy is a lost cause here. We can name our charity “Voices for a Lost Cause” if we ever get around to it.

    Oh my, these comments are so scattered. I really did just comment to say I love you.
    And to quote BEBEBEBE (((( group hug))))) Thank you for all the fun!

    Hey everyone! I’ve been enjoying the No Air duet (over and over again!)

    PaBuckie: Wow! Great video! I’m jealous of your new skills! Perhaps after tax season, I’ll try my hand at it too. You’re inspirational!
    And thanks for posting that video of the end of David’s HYAMLC duet with his mom. I just love the way he smiles so adoringly when his mom is too choked up to sing!

    Bliss! Great to ‘see you’ here! I was just wondering (really) where you’d gone to as I was making my way down this thread! Always a pleasure to read your stuff. 🙂

    Running out to get some Super Bowl food! Now every mention of football is going to bring to mind the No Air duet for me…guess I’ll just have to live with that.

    Abrra #79–What is the story behind this precious photo? It’s a heart-warmer for sure. And, #80–just what my PC needs is more pics. The poor thing probably thinks that’s all it was made to do is store photos, mp3’s and mp4’s, and iTunes. Oh well, it’ll either get over it or blow up (it wouldn’t dare!).

    You can get a storage stick for backing up your mp3’s etc and get most of them off your main hard drive.

    Bubbly asked me for the photo in chat last night. I don’t know if there is a story other than what we see. A father lifting his child to touch the hand of the chosen one.
