Plain as the Nose on His Face

Posted by thefunnygirl on Wednesday, September 8, 2010

I’ve grown accustomed to his face.
He almost makes the day begin.
I’ve grown accustomed to the tune that
He whistles night and noon.
His smiles, his frowns,
His ups, his downs
Are second nature to me now;
Like breathing out and breathing in.
I was serenely independent and content before we met;
Surely I could always be that way again-
And yet
I’ve grown accustomed to his look;
Accustomed to his voice;
Accustomed to his face.

Writers

Music – Frederick Loewe Lyrics – Alan Jay Lerner


I don’t think I have a nose fetish.  It’s just HIS nose that I notice.  After much more thought than anyone should ever give a nose, I’m convinced that although David’s nose is entirely beautiful, its movement represents much more to me than simple olfactory function.  It is part of the air system that allows for that glorious voice to take flight.  It’s as though the nostrils are the passage that breathes life into this world, the soft and unconscious ebb and flow that sustains us.  So ummm…yeah that’s right – his nose is our oxygen.

“So keep breathin’, I said that I’d always be there, now I mean it more than ever before, there’s a future worth fighting for.”

    I woke up this morning to this! I love THIS! lol

    Thank you FG for putting it all in perspective for me. That nose holds a prominent place in all of THIS. And for me, it’s proximity to that top lip has its own particular significance.

    When David sings his whole body is involved and his love, passion and caring speaks to us. Those shoulders in the Como La Flor song above moving in that shirt are just divine. And when you put it all together and that voice reaches my ears, my heart, my entire being, I am totally enraptured. How does he do this? I just pray he never stops for all our sakes.

    This piece has reduced me to a puddle of mush (but a smiling puddle of mush ha ha) 🙂

    FunnyGirl: Thanks for the comic relief! You truly live up to your screen name with this light-hearted whimsical piece! 😀 The two videos you chose rendered me speechless!

    Emmegirl#1 I appreciate the link for Danielle Brisebois’ website. When I first heard her name connected with TAGGB, it rang a bell. Why was I so familiar with that name? I did a little digging and found that she was a child actress in the 1980s, and had a role on one of my favorite TV shows, “Knot’s Landing”. Twenty-something years later, she co-wrote a song for “the most gifted performer on the planet.” 😀

    FG,

    heh heh heh…what can I say? You are too much. In fact about 400 words too much, but I always say if you can say something in 200 words, why use 600? But I feel guilty for editing so much of the fun from funnygirl’s article so here, in the comments (not in the feature article) is the whole, unedited version. I have also included the emails we exchanged about this article, months ago when she first sent it to me. Tell me, which version do you all like best?

    This Heavenly Honker (Original draft and title by you know who ^)

    When Season 7 was on, my eyes were inexplicably drawn to David’s nose. I had no idea why, but I began to watch it closely for krinkles and nostril flares. I came to learn how to watch for them based upon what he was singing. I had never in my life been so fascinated with a nose! His nose was like poetry. I would have to give certain videos a ‘nose screening’ and by doing so discovered that his amazing schnoz was best appreciated by taking the angle and lighting into account. This heavenly honker was, afterall, part of the air system that allowed for that glorious voice to take flight, and I intended to give it the utmost in nasal adoration.

    I don’t think I have a nose fetish cuz it is just HIS nose that I notice in this way. After much more thought than anyone should ever give a nose, I’m convinced that although his nose is entirely beautiful, (its size, shape, angles and perfectly formed kidney bean shaped nostrils GAH!), its movement represents much more to me than simple olfactory function. It’s as if the flare of the nostrils is the action that breathes life into this world, the soft and unconscious ebb and flow that keeps us alive.

    So ummm…yeah that’s right – his nose is our oxygen.

    “So keep breathin’, I said that I’d always be there, now I mean it more than ever before, there’s a future worth fighting for.”

    OHMYHECK David Archuleta I love your nose and I don’t care if you knows!

    This she accompanied with nose pics too numerous too count, no less that SIX YT videos she lovingly named, Blue Hue Nose, Black and White Profile, Sparkly nose times two, Profile Nose in Plaid, Silent flare-o-rama, and lastly, I’m lovin’ nostrils instead.

    She emailed this to me and then sent a follow up email right after…

    “it it too silly?? Do you think you will use it?

    DAVID ARCHULETA ROCKS!!!!” (For some reason, she insists on signing all correspondence not by her name, but by “DAVID ARCHULETA ROCKS!!!!)

    My reply…

    It is too silly and yes, I think I’ll use it.

    To which she then replied…

    “LOL are you gonna post all the avi pics, like in a heavenly honkeriffic row or something equally amazing that would make his archulip curllll? perhaps an avi slideshow bwhaaaa with some nose related song playing?? Is there such a song, shall I investigate? LOLOL!

    DAVID ARCHULETA ROCKS!!!!”

    She did investigate because in a subsequent email shortly thereafter, unable to contain her joy in finding the perfect song to fit her article, I received this spaaaazzzzarama lyric-fest…

    Are you ready? Here it comes!

    here are the lyrics LOL

His nose is another vehicle that delivers that beautiful sound, that sound that tears right into my soul and his humming, has anyone ever heard humming like David humming? I never have and it’s just one more attribute of David. Yet with all this, I can’t ignore that he has a wonderful beautiful piece of art on his face, his nose.

    Nice article from The Commercial Appeal from Memphis, TN

    No idle time for ‘Idol’ contestant Dave Archuleta

    * By Mark Jordan
    * Memphis Commercial Appeal
    * Posted September 9, 2010 at midnight

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    On his upcoming third release, The Other Side of Down, due in stores Oct. 5, Dave Archuleta has a song he wrote called “Elevator,” that was inspired by a dream he had recently.

    “In my dream there’s a huge building with all these different floors and elevators going to different places, and I didn’t know which floor to get off at,” says the 19-year-old singer, who performs Sunday at the Delta Fair & Music Festival. “The song is just reflective of life. How there’s so many different decisions, so many different things that can happen to you in your life. They may not always make sense, and it can be really confusing at times. But it’s an endless ride. Sometimes it takes you up. Sometimes it takes you down. But it’s the butterflies that keeping you feeling so alive.”
    Dave Archuleta

    Dave Archuleta

    With its message of feeling overwhelmed by choices, the song neatly sums up Archuleta’s life over the past three years, a period that resembles a roller coaster as much as a bank of elevators. Though he was already a show business pro — he won the junior vocal division of the television talent contest “Star Search 2” when he was 12 — the Utah native was only 16 years old when he became one of the youngest contestants ever on the seventh season of “American Idol” in 2007.

    “It was hard being that young on the show,” says Archuleta. “I had three hours of school extra on top of everything else we had to do. And the fact that I was the only minor, it made it more difficult. It was harder to relate to people, harder to connect with someone, even though we were going through the same situation.”

    Archuleta came in second on his season, losing in the final vote to David Cook. But he did well enough to earn his own shot at a recording career. Jive Records signed him and released his self-titled debut in 2008.

    Despite most people’s assumption that “Idol” contestants go on to become puppets in a giant music-making machine, Archuleta bears out other former contestants’ assertions that being on the hit show is an opportunity; but once its over, what you do with the opportunity is up to you. For a teenager like Archuleta that responsibility, with all its incumbent choices and responsibilities, proved daunting.

    “It all happened a lot faster that I imagined it,” he says of his sudden music career. “I thought I would have a year to figure out what I was going do and then opportunities would maybe start coming. But it was just like boom, boom, boom, didn’t stop. I had to learn a lot faster. I felt like I was trying to hang onto something that was moving a lot quicker than I was able to keep up with. But it pushed me past my boundaries — what I thought were my boundaries — and I learned a lot..”

    Despite launching his career in front of tens of millions of people, for his third studio album (a holiday collection, Christmas From the Heart came out last year), Archuleta wanted to show more of himself on The Other Side of Down.

    “There’s definitely a lot more of me this time around, more of my thoughts and ideas and personality in the songs,” says Archuleta, who co-wrote 10 of the album’s 12 tracks. “I just though what worked for me is just being who I am. There’s a little more quirkiness to this album and more meaningful messages to the songs.”

    We have had his smile in conversation and now his ‘nose’. Actually I have never noticed his nose much (although it is handsome) but then I don’t notice noses. We are all so different in what appeals to our senses.

    I saw Sara Bareilles on Regis and Kelly earlier today and she sang a song “King of Anything” from her album “Kaleidoscope Heart”. Her album is apparently #1 on itunes at the present time as long as the show was live. The song spoke of the same cheerful attitude and diversity of style that is seen in David’s “Elevator” and “Parachutes and Airplanes”. He has always admired Sara and that admiration noticeably spills over into these two songs…IMO

    Hi Everyone,
    Just a reminder to tune into the SU2C show Friday 8 ET/ 5 PT. Viewers around the world who do not have access to any of the TV networks can watch on any of the live streaming links. I’m told the streaming show will extend 30 minutes beyond the televised portion which is 90 minutes.
    I want the team to know in advance that we will be announced as co-winners with the Survivor show whose network matched the individual donations for a total close to $30K. Ethan Zohn is an amazing example of what it means to be a true Survivor and what this Stand Up2 Cancer is all about. Stand Up2 Cancer is just one of many important causes he has championed all while undergoing his own battle against lymphoma. Please be sure to congratulate him or donate to the team on the site. If you call in an hour before the show begins, you may even have a chance to speak to a celebrity.
    I have learned my lesson that plans for network TV will change up until the very last minute so I do not want to raise any false hopes. All I can say is, if things do go according to plan, your only regret would be missing this show! You’ve been warned people!
    To those of my homies who will be observing the holiday, L’Shana Tova, to a good and sweet new year!

    From Idol Chatter, Brian Mansfield, Sep 09, 2010

    David Archuleta talks about dream-inspired new song, ‘Elevator’

    David Archuleta dishes on one of the new songs on his forthcoming The Other Side of Down album in an interview with the Memphis Commerical Appeal. The song, Elevator, was inspired by a dream, David tells reporter Mark Jordan.

    “In my dream there’s a huge building with all these different floors and elevators going to different places, and I didn’t know which floor to get off at,” David says. “The song is just reflective of life. How there’s so many different decisions, so many different things that can happen to you in your life. They may not always make sense, and it can be really confusing at times. But it’s an endless ride. Sometimes it takes you up. Sometimes it takes you down. But it’s the butterflies that keeping you feeling so alive.”

    David plays Sunday at the Delta Fair & Music Festival in Memphis, Tenn.

    Bebereader, that pic of yours # 68 reminds of the pretzel guy who hung around my High School in the Bronx back in the ’60s. Back then it was a dime a pretzel, 3 for a quarter. On the way home, we washed it down with a Lime Rickey for a nickel.

    As for that snippet of TOSOD, buckle up folks. This song kicks some serious butt. So far we’ve heard, what , 4 songs, from this CD, and they’re all fantastic.

There are millions of people out there, including me, who are sick, I mean REALLY SICK of these songs being played on the radio these days. I don’t listen to the radio anymore, sadly.

    Mandi#91 Spazzing? You’ve come to the right place! I rarely listen to radio anymore either. They barely play David’s songs so why bother?

    David is not a provincial kind of guy. NY offers an international range of everything under the sun, especially food, which David loves. Heck, there are 2 Thai restaurants right next to each other on 28th St and 3rd Ave that I’ve been to. I’d love to go to one of these places with David, and since he’s the Thai food maven, I’d let him do the ordering, and we could send the bill to Jive.

    David would thrive, both professionally and personally, in NYC, and he could do it without being mobbed by fans. NYers are way too “hip” for that kind of behavior, and would “try” to leave him alone. Of course, the closer you get to David, the more impossible that is to actually do. Right, Natasha?

    Freak! How can this album get better? I was already blown away by the other songs and now this one is even better than the rest? 😯

    Nice beat, easy to dance to, I give it a 100! Photobucket

    This CD is going to be a feel-good, seat/floor dancing, mood enhancing ear full of audio/emo nirvana!

    Can you even wrap your head around what experiencing him singing them live on tour will be like? Photobucket Photobucket

    Angelica – I’d like to try to imagine these new songs live but I’d need medical assistance. His new confidence level plus his babies that he wrote plus the possibility of him wearing a belt? I call foul.

    Right Abrra…I just heard people refer it to the Crush album and I forgot that it was the …DAVID ARCHULETA album…I will blame David on my mind being boggled both now and for the future. The past state of my mind being boggled, well not sure on that one, maybe that is how I got here. Now isn’t that just mind boggling? Oh no Abrra don’t think of the word “ditzy!”.

    The video of David riding in a carriage in Central Park proves it again. He has no ego and he is so down to earth. There he is, eating and casually talking about his album as if we were sitting across from him and sharing what ever he is eating. I just love him when he is talking to his fans. So personal and relaxed. What a thoughtful friend he is to all his fans.

    After hearing some of the songs on David’s album I think that he is going to be doing a lot of dancing on stage, like he does with “Zero Gravity”. The concert is going to be a big party with all his fans singing and dancing along with him. Can’t wait!!!

    Skydancer1x, I agree with you. David’s presence transcends the geographic location he is in, and he is always “just David” whether he’s in Central Park, South Carolina, Honduras, or Malaysia. David relates to everyone the same. Everyone gets the same David Archuleta treatment of total respect, warmth and validation.

    One of my favorite quotes is “You can measure the quality of a person by how they treat other people who can do absolutely nothing to benefit them”. Nobody personifies that concept better than David.

    djafan ~ hi! Sorry I haven’t responded sooner (about 2 or 3 threads ago). I’m happy to know it was you that liked my special “David Concert” perfume. I would have responded sooner but for now I’m stuck with my “smart phone” which wouldn’t let me send this message.
    I hope we will meet up again @ David’s next concert. I can scarcely stand the anticipation!

    I just love TOSOD!!! I wanna hear the whole thing & soon!!!
