davidarchie posted on facebook and instagram about a great philosophy from The Hobbit – that it is only a great Power that can hold Evil in check, keeping Darkness at bay.
It was a timely post because we are nearing that time of the Lunar calendar to celebrate Chinese New Year!! 🙂
The ancient Chinese share a similar conviction – that there is a great power which can hold evil and darkness at bay. They believe that the power of Noise (Fireworks!) and Bustle (Parades and Crowds!) can drive away evil spirits so that the New Year can have a clean, fresh start.
May I also go one step further and say that the current “hour of silence” within our Archudom needs a little “rumpus” to keep everyone awake until the man himself brings forth that Album (which somehow turned into an EP – nevermind, us beggars cannot be choosers! 😉 ) and also drive away all the “darker forces” which may be preventing David from completing that EP! (Joke! 😉 )
So we are posting a vid of a CNY Parade well in advance of CNY (the noise comes at the end of the vid)
This is a beautifully-made vid made on the biggest and longest CNY Parades in San Francisco. But why post a vid of a CNY Parade in America instead of say … China? Well, I guess it’s simply for the reason that we are constantly straining our necks to look West into the direction where David Archuleta lives in order to check out whether he is SERIOUSLY working on that album/EP he promised!!! 😡 😡
Parades remind me of the time when David was standing on a float raising money for the Children’s Medical Centre in Dallas in 2010. Such a long time ago … But the good and eternals are ever-lasting .. yeah, like Fireworks and New Year Parades … and David Archuleta. 🙂

2 0 1 6 YEAR OF THE MONKEY
(We have not quite figured out why the Monkey is wearing a Santa hat
Well, why not? We believe in the integration of cultures 🙂 )
PS Let’s hope this Monkey from the Monkey year will create alot of Noise and Buzz in the coming Archu-year!! 😀
