Life and Choices

Posted by djafan on Friday, September 19, 2014


I recently came across this interview of Ashton Kutcher on Ellen, talking about his speech at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. He won the Teen Choice Award for “Ultimate Choice.”

Here is the actual speech he gave.

In 2008, David won the Teen Choice Award for “Most Fanatic Fans” and “Best Smile.” In 2009, he won the Teen Choice Award for “Breakout Artist of the Year,” “Best Love Song (Crush)” and “Best Tour (with Demi Lovato).” In 2010, he won “Best American Idol Alum.”

Now it is 2014 and David is no longer a teen. He is a grown man making choices that will affect the rest of his life. I find it interesting that while listening to Ashton’s views on life and the decisions/attitudes young people should adopt to be successful, I thought of David. Listen as Ashton elaborates the three talking points of his speech:

“The first thing is about opportunity. The second thing is about being sexy. And the third thing is about living life.”

In what ways do you think this view reflects/deviates from the path David is on now?

    Holy Cow!!! There are good, young people with a brain that works! This speech leaves me speechless. It took a lot of courage for Ashton to deliver this kind of message. But, what an amazing forum to be in for it. How lucky those teens were that were there to have been able to hear this from one of their idols. Oh yes. In my mind, this is just the message that David is trying to publish. Kudos to Ashton, and David, for caring enough about others to let them know what is important, and to not back down from their beliefs and standards. ♥


  2. jans11 said

    I love this post, Angelica! Ashton is such a good role model, as well as David. Everything he says sounds like David. Because the speech and what David believes are both good and decent. Not like the “crap” out there that some “stars” think they have to go through to make them popular.

    To me, the way “opportunity” parallels with David is that he feels so grateful that he has the voice that he has and wants to share it by staying in the music industry. He loves it. But he wants to take this down time opportunity and get his education too. The 2nd one “sexy”. He never did think he was and now coming from his mission, he doesn’t want to go out on concerts and “let it go”! I mean if you look at a lot of his videos, it just shows, he is, he can’t help it. His charisma, his modesty and sweetness makes him sexy whether he likes it or not! 🙂 3rd, for the first time in his life he is “living life” the way he wants. No one is telling him what to do but he knows what he wants. I think he wants to find a MKOP, get married and have a family, intertwining it with his music life. He always said that the 3 things in his life is faith, family and fans!

    I’m just hanging around to see what he does next, hoping I can see him sing live again someday.

    On a side note, I always like Ashton, because my grandson looks like him! 🙂 Really, he is a great actor and has a great sense of humor.


  3. Really enjoyed re-visiting this thought provoking speech from Ashton. Such a smart young man and, like so many, I recognize the parallel with David’s phase of life since his return from his Mission. It helps me to better understand the changes taking place. I needed to visit your blog today, Angelica. So glad I did. Ashton isn’t the only smart young man. That being said, I will always savor the memories of the past six years and the ultimate joy that “young David” brought to this fandom.


  4. tawna21 said

    NCGirl, “I will always savor the memories of the past six years and the ultimate joy that “young David” brought to this fandom.”. So true. How lucky we are, and how grateful I am, to have these memories. He certainly was the drug that so many of us needed and then swallowed.

    Jan, I’m like you. Just hanging around and waiting. 🙂


  5. bluesky4home said

    Wonderful article A. and wonderful to see you! Am running due to …. family!! However, I recently saw a new interview with Jason Castro. He spoke of his experience with the mainstream music industry and how he decided to take his talents in another direction and is doing Christian music. Gotta tell you… that season of AI …. there must have been something in the water. ^_^

    Not saying they all turned “religious”, that is not what I mean. Just that they were and are some really fine people, who seem amazingly grounded as they study life and its choices.


  6. bluesky4home said

    It was good to hear him sing. ^_^

    Thanks to all who came to chat last night. We had a great time!

    Today’s Sunday puzzle is three times the enjoyment. 🙂



  9. bebereader said


    Ashton Kutcher is so believable playing silly characters on TV that it’s easy to forget that he’s really a standup guy with a lot to offer. He was courageous to relay his ideas to an audience of impressionable teenagers who have been fed so much but the truth in song lyrics by following celebrities they idolize.

    Stressing the value of hard work to achieve one’s goals and the importance of being smart, thoughtful and generous in making wise choices to build your own life reminds me of the way David has always lived his life.

    Those videos were a great find!


    Seemed like old times in chat last night! A good time was had by all. Thanks for a great video lineup!


  10. tawna21 said

    Super nice puzzle today, Abrra. Thank you!! 🙂

    I just spent 4 days in Salt Lake City this last week at a convention. Part of it was held at the Salt Palace Convention Center and we would longingly pass by Abravanel Hall when we had to walk past it. The other part of it was held at the Energy Solutions Arena. Hmmm, The ESA is right across the street from the BYU/Salt Lake campus and The Depot where David was seen in his car. My companion (happens to be an avid Archie Fan) and I may have squeed a bit. And we just may have scanned closely, but from a distance, the cars in the parking lot for a white hybrid (nope not there). Yeah, we probably did do that! 🙂 #iwillnothangmyheadinshame


  11. MT said

    “Yeah, we probably did do that!”

    LOL You had me laughing out loud at that and your hashtag. You go, girl. Fly that fan flag proudly! 🙂


  12. MT said

    Chat was so much fun! I wish I could have been there longer (I was late getting there. 😦 ) but I had a great time while I was there.

    And Abrra shared a video of Crazy I actually like!! )TY Abrra!) So, I’m sharing it today.

    Credit: tamster1328

    Note: Did anyone else notice that with the shadow/stripes on his shirt, his outfit looks like something from Star Trek? LOL Or maybe it’s just me. 😀


  13. Abrra said

    It was just a matter of time!



  14. MT said

    LOL You always knew it would happen, didn’t you? 😉


  15. bebereader said


    That was the “Crazy” that got us hooked so it makes sense that it grabbed you too.

    I think the striped thing he’s wearing was a scarf, I was at the Newark show but he wore something different when he performed.


  16. jans11 said

    The David triplets were fun, fun, fun! 🙂

    Glad that MT finally came to her senses! haha 🙂 Even though I have always loved it, that is a good version. My favorite one is when he sang it live 15 ft away from me at VIP! Also, Heaven…it really was Heaven to hear that live too.


  17. Abrra said

    He sang Heaven at the same VIP in Newark. Its hauntingly beautiful.




  18. Abrra said

    Another song written 🙂 Will David add this to his album? He isn’t listed as a performer.

    Let’s ponder.



  19. bluesky4home said

    This is Jason Deere. He leads a band called “Nashville Tribute” which performs gospel music.

    I will post another in which you can hear the words better, but this one really touched me.
    So interesting that DA has written a song that Jason is slotted to sing.


  20. bluesky4home said

    The other one.


  21. bluesky4home said

    Jason has written song for top singers and lives in …. Nashville. ^_^

    Songwriter, Producer and Remixer

    Jason Deere has made a career out of writing hit songs and developing hit artists. He has written songs recorded by Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Jessica Simpson, Jim Brickman, SHeDAISY, Be Be Winans, Natalie Grant, Point of Grace, Wanessa Camargo, Leonardo, Luiza Possi, The Wreckers, James Wesley, Chad Brock and Due West, and he has a lengthy list of film and television credits (including Tim Allen’s Santa Clause 2, The Nativity Story and Letters To God). When he’s not writing, Deere is devoted to helping other artists become major label recording successes such as SHeDAISY, Due West, Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband and Little Big Town.


  22. tawna21 said

    If you click onto the twitter conversation, Jason replies that the info was entered wrong.

    Jason Deere ‏@jasondeere 17m

    @GrayAAA @kimak @mlpb3 @DavidArchie David sang on the new @NashvilleTBand album, I am producer not singer of song. Info entered wrong.?.


  23. bluesky4home said

    Wooooo Hooooo!!!!

    That makes me happy, Tawna. Thanks!!!!


  24. bluesky4home said

    This is the announcement on NTB’s website:

    “We are beyond thrilled to be announcing the release of a brand new album on November 4th, 2014! In conjunction with Deseret Book, The Nashville Tribute Band will be releasing a new album called “Redeemer: A Nashville Tribute To Jesus Christ”. We can’t even begin to describe to you what this project is like and what it has done to each and every one of us that has been involved in the recording and preparation for its release. It has changed us spiritually and has driven us to want to be better disciples of Him. Love our other albums ? ? ? ? Just wait . . . we’re taking it to a whole other level!”

    So… does this mean that I will get to hear a new song by DA – that he, himself sings – November 4th?



  25. Abrra said

    Wonderful news today all around!

    Thanks for the research bluesky.



  26. tawna21 said

    There is light at the end of the tunnel! It’s starting to faintly glow! I will continue to put one step in front of the other until I reach that light … I promise!!


  27. bluesky4home said

    Okay, Angelica… we need a post called: No Words But His.

    Seems he is not planning on doing any covers. Not even to throw a line or two of “bait” to fans who feel that they are swimming upstream. In deep water.

    No second guessing him. Whatever he does, he does for a reason.

    (guess I just did that. well. but you would make it sound better. ^_^ )


  28. jans11 said

    #17…Abs….Absolutely stunning! ♥

    19…Jason Deere! ♥

    #24 & 25…♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!


  29. djafan said

    Angelica, Perfect!!! Ashton Kutcher is talking about exactly what David is doing, what he is building. That takes time and planning. I don’t know much about Ashton but very smart in what he said and where he said it. As we wait for David’s timing we can try to prepare for what’s to come or can we? lol

  41. MT said

    Thanks Abrra!

    That clip! His voice is as gorgeous as ever!!


  42. stenocruiser said

    Oh my! Is there a voice anywhere on this planet that is as gloriously beautiful as David’s? I think not!!


  43. bebereader said

    No Steno, there is not. His voice is one of a kind beautiful.
    That 1:29 clip from ITunes is out of this world amazing.


  44. Abrra said

    This might be about “Glorious”

    This is a Utah station and times listed are MT.


    Be sure and tune in this Sunday for a sneak preview of a new recording by David Archuleta–it’ll heard near the end of the soon-to-be-released movie “Meet the Mormons,” but you can hear it sooner than that!

    You can hear an interview with David plus the new recording on FM100.3 or online at this Sunday at the end of the first music set in the 7am, 9am, 12pm, 2pm, and 4pm hours.



  45. tawna21 said

    Oh My! …melting from the beauty of his voice!


  46. tawna21 said

    Yes, Abrra, that is MT. time….. that’s the station I listen to. They play Crush quite regularly (sadly none of his other songs). Thanks for the info… guess who will definitely be tuned in whilst getting ready for Church!?!


  47. fenfan said

    “Gloriously beautiful” – that sums it up!


  48. skydancer1x said

  51. Angelica said

    Hi. I’m still here. Just dealing with some life issues that don’t leave much space for David right now. I listened to the clip. He sounded pretty good from the little I heard. I’m happy he’s doing what he loves. Sorry this is so brief. Thanks to the other great admins here and those who comment for keeping the support for him going. Love you guys.


  52. djafan said

  57. tawna21 said

    Angelica, Hang in there. {{hugs}} ♥

    Oh these pictures….. glorious!!! Thank you!


  58. jans11 said

    Hang in there, Angelica! We love you too! ♥

    Love the new photos on the set in Costa Rica! David’s looking really sharp! I still think he was shooting a video for his new Spanish song. 🙂 Why Costa Rica was chosen for the locale, don’t know. But it’s beautiful, that’s for sure!

    Sure do love that snippet! He’s looking and sounding so awesome!!!!!! But still want to see him in a live concert…….patience….patience….


  59. sweetonda said

    ((((HUGS))))) to you Angelica! Trying times do pass.

    Loving all the activity I’m seeing int the Archuworld! Lot’s of things have hit at once; that snippet is beautiful and his voice is so much deeper. Can’t wait to hear the whole thing and I must tune in Sunday to hear GLORIUS! Pictures aren’t too bad either!


  60. FunnyGirl said



  61. FunnyGirl said

    Hello to all! I’m out of the loop! Hope all is ok with Angelica!

    Hearing the new snippet was like an awakening ! Praise God for a new song! Hugs to all its great to be here!


  62. jans11 said

    David looks good in those red pants, but he looks good in the white ones too, and he always looks good in his jeans or his black pants! He can wear anything, just like he can sing anything! Just the total package! 🙂

    FunnyGirl, good to see you back in the loop! 🙂


  63. Nice to see you steno 🌻and FG 🌸 and of course everyone!

    Angelica….thinking about you! Take care!

    Sometimes words from songs cross your mind as you are reading the sites. As I was reading somewhere else I thought “It’s Not For Me To Say” of course that belongs to Johnny Mathis. So I looked it up and the version I found has pictures that bring David to mind. You can see glances of him in so many
    places. I think it will make you smile.



  64. jans11 said

    Another great! Thanks, SB for posting. I seen in the comments that he will be 77 on 9-30. Hadn’t heard from him for while so didn’t know if he was still around. Some of his photos do remind me of David, except the one with the cigarette! 🙂

    Will be fun to trend David tomorrow night! 🙂


  65. Jans11…I had my own little cringe at the sight of the cigarette but as I had in discussion with a friend the other day, cigarettes were of no concern and so very common years ago. Why people never wondered what the smoke inhaled was doing to them shows us we can ignore just about anything.

    I always loved Johnny Mathis and like David, his smile is memorable.



  66. I forgot about the closed eyes too!! 😌


  67. MT said

    {{{Hugs}}} Hope things are looking up for you very soon!

    David is looking good in those photos! (I sill want to fluff the hair though. LOL) Looking forward to hearing the song to go with that video!! I loved the Spanish clip we heard so I have a feeling I’m going to love it. 🙂

    I listened to “Glorious” today, the original of course. I was surprised that it didn’t sound very religious since it’s going into a religious film. (I think it is, anyway. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong about that.) It sounded like it was more about what David said in his vlog, about discovering “who you are” and taking your place in the world. The original is very pretty and very sweet. I’m curious what changes David will incorporate to make it his own, as he usually does. I’m looking forward to hearing it in David’s beautiful voice.
