The Other Side of Down is officially released in the U.S today and VERY soon till it reaches our shore!
So this post is just to celebrate the ‘birthday’ of TOSOD. CONGRATULATIONS DAVID. We could never say enough how proud we are of you and what an amazing talent and example you are and will always be. We, your fans, will stand by you always, to support and show you our love in whatever big or small ways we can.
And an excerpt from an interview with Idol Chatter that basically sums up 100 out of 24939835 reasons why we love this dude:
“I could try to be cool. A lot of artist get developed, get an image and get that whole mysterious persona. I can not do that. I could try, but I know that’s not me. One of the biggest things for me is to be honest with myself and real with other people. If I were to try to create an image that’s not who I am to look appealing to other people, I’d be so uncomfortable with that.
“It’s like I was fighting with myself: ‘David, you’re not cool! What if people don’t like who you are, because you’re not that image?’ Then I was like, ‘Not everyone’s going to like who you are, no matter what you do. Somebody’s always going to have a problem with you.’
Now of course, TOSOD celebration wouldnt be complete without a twitter trending party:
DATE: Tuesday, October 5th
TIME: 3 pm Eastern Standard Time, U.S.
TWEET: Please use the words “David Archuleta” in your tweet
THE PLAN: We still start tweeting at 3 pm. As more people arrive home from school or work later in the day, they will join in until we get TOSOD to trend. David has an online chat at 4 pm with New York radio station Z100, and a live chat at 6 pm with Billboard. If you are listening to these chats, feel free to mention them in your tweets!
