Through bits of information tweeted, we strongly suspect that David has been on creativity-mode while living part of his time in Nashville, city of music.
I take my hat off to creativity in musical artistry. Artistes have to dig deep into their souls, unravel it, and even often jump off cliffs to just string a few musical notes together to impress the world; to beautify its senses. Making a commercial success of those processes makes those efforts even more punishingly demanding. Creativity takes courage.
Rumi, my most esteemed Persian poet, has this to say:
“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth.”
I guess that more or less sums up what creativity is about.
I came upon these 2 videos which, with imagination and creative ideas, this couple of musicians have engaged themselves on a higher level to the audience.
A Couple’s Quarrel
David tweets again! Woohoo!
And it’s about music!
“Where did this song come from? Completely stood out from everything else on iTunes. Gave me chills.
Here’s another vid with visuals of the song he mentioned.
And he has been keeping in touch with fans!
“Yeah, I spent over an hour trying to get some kind of iTunes link so people could go buy it and had no luck. Off to bed. 😉 ”
Thanks David, I’m off to bed too.
Never heard that song before or the singer. Not sure whether to listen to it and gauge something or other from it, or to use it as a clue to your upcoming music, although I do believe most of us here like the sound of that song.
But so happy you are keeping in touch. Keep it up! 🙂
David tweets –
“Let’s get down to business, to defeat…. The HUNS!” Anybody with me?
What is David up to? I thought he was a Man of Peace.
He is into Violence now? This is an invitation to War?! 😉
David Archuleta – Man Of Infinite Surprises!
Can’t wait for the lyrics of his new songs!! 😉 😀
Delightful picture! Not sure who is cuter.
Animals can be competitive. Learnt that from watching too much Cesar Millan. 🙂
You don’t think that calf is competitive? With us?
He doesn’t look like he is gloating? That he has been hogging that guy?
Of all the nerve, he doesn’t even listen to music! Oh … maybe he does. What do we know.
Oh well, our time will come.
Cute, all the same. Both of them. In different ways, of course.
Well … at least David has more hair. Sort of. 😉
We clicked onto David’s official site to hopefully get hit between the eyes with another surprise he so often dishes out to us, but nothing would have prepared us for this:
We do realise that sites need maintenance and need work done sometimes, but somehow, seeing that sent us into a few fits of giggles. (yes, no matter how serious a mode David wants to adopt, to us, he is still the “nice guy” we see as teasable. 😉 )
Does David need a maintenance process? Well, with tongue in cheek, we surely would like to say:
Yes, he needs an OVERHAUL!!
Remove that solemn demeanour … throw away that oh-so-sober suit … grow a pony-tail … don some wacky tees and broken jeans … let his hair down and belt us some silly, harebrained tunes …
Well … not really. He is quite perfect, the way he is. (that’s tongue-in-cheek too if ya know what I mean! 😉 )
That was us just going a bit loony now and again while undergoing something. Think it’s called Waiting.
Hopefully, this Maintenance Mode will open to a new, exciting phase for us fans!
PS Will never tire of that look above .. the stance … the untied shoelace … the mode … 🙂
News is rife that David is speaking/singing at TOFW – Time Out For Women – conference on August 8 in Sydney.
And onwards to Auckland for the NZ conference on August 15.
There is no confirmation yet on his official site but there is alot of buzz from his many fans from Down Under.
Other than hoping that the news is true and anxiously waiting for videos later on, we gotta admit we are stewing in a little envy.
David is going East. I think he might have over-shot. What about this East??? 😉
