Thanks to the relentlessness of all the admirable worldwide diehard Archies, David trends again in the latest WWTT.
It touches my heart to see how united his fans still are and how much they want him to remain out there despite the present dismal situation where there is no music being produced; in fact no specific news at all when his music may be expected.
I don’t want to sound like I’m beating a dead horse even though my mind is repeatedly asking the same question. In actual fact, I’m asking myself many, many assorted questions during this dry period.
Granted that we have mostly accepted the fact that we need to be patient and that we need to wait. Perhaps for a pretty long time. No sightings in the horizon yet. But lots of speculations both loud and whispered.
So the big question today is: why are we still here? Not just quietly waiting but “actively waiting”. Still holding trending parties. Still following his whatever news, how ever trivial. Still commenting. Still discussing and still wondering all kinds of things. Still watching his hair grow – then cruelly chopped – then watch its re-growth again. Still singing praises of him, myself included.
Are the trending parties a declaration of love?
Or are they just our own consolation prize for the time being?
Are they a reminder of delightful days gone by and we need the sense of nostalgia to keep cheerful?
Or are they manipulative tools used by us, hoping David would hear about them, to entice him to do something? Anything. Say something. “Write faster” something.
I’m not grouching. I am one of the most patient people in the world. (well, yes and no :) ) I’m just awfully curious and just awfully impressed with the world’s Archies.
Basically, what I really want to say is: Hey, keep it up, you guys!! :)
