David Archuleta Performs on Good Day New York

David Archuleta performed an acoustic version of his single “Something ‘Bout Love” on Good Day New York this morning.

On his new album, The Other Side of Down, David tells GDNY, that he wrote every song except for two. He’s really happy to get his ideas out there! The album drops on October 5.

On Sunday, August 29 David performs at the US Open’s Arthur Ashe Kids Day with the Jonas Brothers. Check it out on CBS at 12 pm.

  1. What’s with the hyperventilating ditz of a co-host who freaked out at the mere mention of the Jonas Bros? Kinda disturbing.

    Not a bad song, but, please, David, take the Mic out of your throat when you perform…it creates distortion.

    Also, singing a song about love and then admitting in the interview afterward you not only haven’t been in love before, but have never even been in a relationship of any kind? Weak.

  2. Dang…….. look at that stack. David, your hand, its gonna fall off.

    RT @mikekmusic: At Jive with @DavidArchie watching him sign a massive stack of autographs for the fan edition package. http://yfrog.com/n3dvvnj

  3. I love this song, David, I am now a fan.:)
    PS-this news team, was the same one that was not too kind to Lee D. They tend to be a little more “spastic”. Regarding the Mic, I think he was nervous with moving it from hand to hand, which probably amplified and picked up the distortion that you speak of negativo. He’s a kid, so not surprised he has never really been in love, what 17-19 year old really has? Unless they get married young, and then I still have my doubts at that age.

  4. Also, singing a song about love and then admitting in the interview afterward you not only haven’t been in love before, but have never even been in a relationship of any kind? Weak.

    well, he also went on to explain that it doesnt mean just that kind of love, there are all sorts of different types of love relationships. Family, friends etc. Doesnt have to mean a romantic relationship. Also the distortion from the mic is the sound guys problem, not david’s.

  5. Also, singing a song about love and then admitting in the interview afterward you not only haven’t been in love before, but have never even been in a relationship of any kind? Weak.

    I guess it depends on what David means when he is singing about “love”. I don’t think he has ever told us. My theory is that he is talking about his love of music. For him, I think music has brought him great joy and great heartbreak (i.e. vocal paralysis). Others say he is singing about his father. I think this is why this song is so good: it can mean different things to different people, based on the perspective/mindset of the listener.

  6. I thought this was a good performance of SBL and David handled the interview portions well. One of SBL’s strengths, IMO, is that look at love from a different angle. David seems to be bringing his own unique viewpoint to the songs in this album, and that’s a good, good thing.

  7. I hope the rest of album is better than this song, because SBL sounds dated. I can’t see it becoming a pop hit. If I am wrong months from now I will own up to it, but this song just sounds blah. Plus the video didn’t help the song, it’s not anything memorable. I don’t know who made the idea to choose this as the first single, but they made a big mistake.

  8. Negativo, from what I understand holding the mic close to the upper lip is good mic technique. I have seen David (and several others)use the mic like that without distortion many times. It must be due to something else.

    I thought that was a nice interview and enjoyed hearing David explain the layers of meaning in the song.

    Thanks for sharing it with us MJ.

  9. david has explained that ‘sbl’ covers and is not confined to just eros, the romantic type of love, but there is agape love in the theme as well… the video is great testimony to that, lol… the creative community, blogs that employ comment and speculation, the entertainment and artistic community would imo be pretty dull, and likely perish if they stayed within the parameters of only commenting on, singing about, or relaying that which they knew, or had experienced or knowledge of first hand… the imagination is a wonderful thing, long may it rein, lol…

  10. ^^^ IKR, GG. Also, I think about how often singers sing about committed love — “the one” types of stories, without ever having experienced a relationship lasting longer than a month.

  11. still kinda early to be calling the song a mistake imo, but hey, opinions are cool. sbl sounds no more dated than, ahem, several other singles that are currently on the charts, or have been on the charts that shall go unnamed, so i do not see that as a drawback. … the video has over 2 million views on vevo, has not been sent to vh1 or mtv yet, there are several large markets that have yet to add it, so i think it is premature, at best, right now to say the song has no potential to be a hit. if it doesn’t hit, it doesn’t hit, they go to song number 2, which has been done for other idols and artists, so no big deal, but this song imo is no where near done, lol… we know and everyone else does as well that the archies are formidable voters, and if we have any say in it, the video, once it is released to vh1 and mtv, will be voted for heavily, and if we can get it to the top slot, or highly visible, who knows what effect that will have. until then, just taking it day by day, watching it all unfold. not knowing how it is going to turn out is half the fun…

  12. Plus the video didn’t help the song, it’s not anything memorable.

    why is this? is it that he’s dressed appropriately?

  13. I really think David would be most successful going the Christian Contemporary format. It’s just so awkward seeing him attempt to reconcile his strict Mormon beliefs and lifestyle with Top40 pop music. The fit isn’t natural.

  14. I hope the rest of album is better than this song, because SBL sounds dated. I can’t see it becoming a pop hit.

    I think the song is good, and tbh at this point i think nobody knows what is gonna work in radio the next months, so the track have the chance to become a hit, obviously with good promotion. Now i don’t think that all the song work well in the acoustic way, and TO ME this one is one of that songs, David is doing a great job , but Jive need to present the song with a full band to the new listeners.

  15. Also, singing a song about love and then admitting in the interview afterward you not only haven’t been in love before, but have never even been in a relationship of any kind?

    He still young , be in true love is not a thing of the an specific age LOL, The point is that he don’t need to explain everytime that he’s not in love yet, the purpose of the song is to leave the free of interpretation to the listeners, for him can be about his father like someone suggested here(make sense with the lyrics)or whatever, for me can be with my exboyfriend and for my niece with his friend.
    Happen with all the songs ,the personal experiences of each person give a different perspective and feeling of the song, but is to each one to decide the way they want to interprete/feel the song.

    Hope i make sense ;)

  16. Gotta say this is a very appropriate song for a 19 year old! Good job Archie! It’s rare to see a young artist do a song about an appropriate age topic that it surprises us and throws us for a loop. So thanks!

  17. bravo david and mike!!!! now, that’s what you called TALENT!!! GREAT JOB AS USUAL DAVID AND WE WILL BE HERE FOR YOU FOR LIFE!!!

  18. I really think David would be most successful going the Christian Contemporary format. It’s just so awkward seeing him attempt to reconcile his strict Mormon beliefs and lifestyle with Top40 pop music. The fit isn’t natural.

    if he were a rapper mormon, then maybe i could see the top 40 point a little clearer, lol, but i don’t think anyone really feels his beliefs will be a stumbling block for his success in the genre. plenty of devout believers have had success in pop-ular music, so no worries. imo, perhaps if some stars had hewed a little closer to their stated beliefs as they begin tasting success, they may have been able to avoid some of the pitfalls that engulfed them – e.g., whitney houston [baptist], michael jackson [jehovah’s witness], marvin gaye [pentecostal] to name a few… all conjecture, speculation and butt talking, but this is what we do, and how we roll up in here, oui :)

    imo, coming from a religious background or holding what are considered devout beliefs doesn’t mean that avenue is or should be the only one open to you. if this were so, there would be no rnb or soul genres, as many who are their biggest superstars, and many of the superstars in pop and other genres have come straight outta the ‘chuch’, lol… where would pop-ular music be if these greats had not come through the ‘chuch’, bringing its influence and stylings with them as they forged what is the majority and the backbone of all the music we tend to listen to and love today – kings of leon [pentecostal] being a more recent and current example, lol… how narrow our musical world would be if they had kept all that talent within the confines of gospel or christian music :)

  19. I really think David would be most successful going the Christian Contemporary format. It’s just so awkward seeing him attempt to reconcile his strict Mormon beliefs and lifestyle with Top40 pop music. The fit isn’t natural.

    What you talking about?, i’m a pop top 40 listener and the last thing i ask about a singer is the beliefs or family background or sexual preferences lol.
    Most of people just hear the song, if they like the song , then they buy it. Is not like listeners run to WIKI to investigate the story behind the singer each time they fall in love with a song….well maybe hard core fans or some fans , but in general people doesn’t care, if the song is good they gonna buy it, that’s simple. David just need to put good music and a good show when he goes on tour. ;)

  20. I really think David would be most successful going the Christian Contemporary format. It’s just so awkward seeing him attempt to reconcile his strict Mormon beliefs and lifestyle with Top40 pop music. The fit isn’t natural.

    I can understand this sentiment since historically some other “Mormon” singers have never been able to break free of the stereotypes and have had some resistance in their chosen genre. Just ask Donny Osmond…he was accepted as a teen and then couldn’t get a Top 40 gig once he reached maturity.

    But, as for David, having grown up surrounded by the Mormon church and having most of my family involved I can say that David’s “actions” are as much about his own personal beliefs as opposed to being controlled by his religious beliefs. David seems to be a rather unique soul who just doesn’t fit into the usual perameters that many of us see surrounding the 19 and 20 year olds we know or were back in our younger days. David seems to be very very happy dancing to “his” drummer and doesn’t seem pressurred to live his life according to his peers. Heck, I don’t know any 19 year old guy who would have spoken at a Women’s conference, or who isn’t topsy turvy over some young women.

    It is evident that David likes who he is, is comfortable being considered “young” for his age, and likes being admired for his beliefs and his attitude. Nothing at all wrong with that.

  21. Great performance of “SBL”. Just like he did with “Crush”, David experiments with the song to reach a comfort level in his live performance of “SBL”…tweaking it along the way. That’s what makes his live performances so wonderful.

  22. It is evident that David likes who he is, is comfortable being considered “young” for his age, and likes being admired for his beliefs and his attitude. Nothing at all wrong with that.

    What’s specifically wrong with the Christian Contemporary format? How would it be less of a fit for him than mainstream Top 40, where his religious wholesomeness and moral purity is virtually non-existent?

    Christian music sells a ton of albums, and he could always do some pop crossover material, too, if he wanted. He would be a whole lot bigger if he went that direction, perhaps the biggest in that genre.

    How narrow our musical world would be if they had kept all that talent within the confines of gospel or christian music.

    How narrow minded must one be to show such disrespect for the Christian Contemporary genre? Apparently, if you are successful in any other genre but Pop Top 40 than you are of no value?

    BTW, I’m not even Christian so this is certainly not me making a plug for Christian music. It’s about using reason and logic about what is the right fit, and it’s pretty hard to argue that inspirational religious music isn’t a better fit for him than any other music format.

  23. I can’t speak for GG and I’m sure she’ll come along and respond, but I do want to say that David’s fan base includes many who do not share his religious views. He can continue to reach a wider audience by focusing on popular rather than Christian music.

    I really think David would be most successful going the Christian Contemporary format. It’s just so awkward seeing him attempt to reconcile his strict Mormon beliefs and lifestyle with Top40 pop music. The fit isn’t natural.

    I think if Adam Lambert has shown us anything, it is that you do not need to “fit in” to be a successful artist. In the past decade, how many out gay men have enjoyed the Top 40 success Adam has? He could have easily focused on Dance music as that may have appeared to some to have been a better “fit” for him. Others said he should focus on Rock because of how well his style fit in with Queen. He did neither. He should be an example to all artists to not allow others define them as artists. At any rate, I have never heard David express any interest in singing Christian Contemporary music, so this whole discussion may be academic.

  25. Good job with SBL. It is better than most pop songs that I hear on top 40 radio. It should be a hit. He is so talented. Why would he want to limit himself to just Christian music? He also is great at Spanish songs which will make him reach even a broader fan base in the future.

  26. Great performance and interview David. David has many fans of all ages who have come back to listen to music again because of David. He wants to sing Pop and many of us find his songs refreshing and universal. His song is of love and has a wide range appeal depending on circumstance. David is a good role model for all ages and lives his life according to his beliefs and at his own pace. He will follow the path that suits him and many of us will be here craving more. He will also be singing Spanish and singing Christmas songs.

  27. but this song just sounds blah

    Now i don’t think that all the song work well in the acoustic way, and TO ME this one is one of that songs, David is doing a great job , but Jive need to present the song with a full band to the new listeners.

    This song isn’t “blah” in the studio version. I agree that it needs the band to make it memorable and hold the listeners’ attention. I am not saying David didn’t do a good job here, but it is a much catchier tune with the band and other embellishments

  28. Negativo- As both a born-again Christian and a David fan, I can tell you that most Christian contemporary stations exist as a ministry to encourage ppl throughout the day and to point them to the God of the Bible. Being faith-based, they hold specific views re: who God is, etc., and the songs being played will reflect that. Alot of the artists tour in churches that espouse those views as well, and money, chart position, etc. is not their main concern…Mmm, it’s hard to explain myself here. Basically, you can’t just “cross over” from secular to Christian music just because “it fits your personality better.” It’s a little more complicated than that. Also, David seems happy with the route that he’s chosen. And he’s stubborn. So good luck talking him out of it. LOL.

    Re: the message behind SBL…um, you must’ve missed the MV, Negativo. David’s describing a variety of kinds of love, not just the romantic type. Pretty astute for a 19-year-old, I think. If you want to talk about an artist not knowing what they’re singing about, Exhibit A would be Justin Bieber, I think.

    And Bridgette12: I’m sorry that you don’t like SBL. From what I’ve gathered across the net, alot of people really enjoy it. It’s actually my favorite song of David’s, and I believe 100% that it’ll do well.

  29. Being faith-based, they hold specific views re: who God is, etc., and the songs being played will reflect that. Alot of the artists tour in churches that espouse those views as well, and money, chart position, etc. is not their main concern…

    Uh, well, you might want to tell Billboard that this is just a little ol’ church picnic genre…

  30. kathy h, you did very well pinch hitting :D

    i certainly don’t hold or subscribe to many of david’s religious views, and they have never been a factor in my enjoyment of him or any other artist i like. what one believes and practices and lives is their business, and deeply personal. unless he reveals himself to be some sort of extremist with views that i find so morally and personally repugnant and offensive i cannot condone them, he could be top mormon no. 1 for all i care – as long as that voice continues singing music i like hearing. to my knowledge, he has never expressed an interest or desire to go in the cc route – he never really came out of that scene, so i can’t envision that being anything viable for him at present – though for someone of his talent it is definitely another option, lol… hmmmm, he does list kirk franklin as an influence, so maybe down the road, we will see these two artists come together to take us to ‘chuch’ :D david has the chops to hang with this gospel powerhouse, so i ain’t scurred, lol

  31. “What’s specifically wrong with the Christian Contemporary format? How would it be less of a fit for him than mainstream Top 40, where his religious wholesomeness and moral purity is virtually non-existent?”

    “It’s about using reason and logic about what is the right fit, and it’s pretty hard to argue that inspirational religious music isn’t a better fit for him than any other music format.”

    I enjoy David’s pop music and am so glad he decided to follow his heart and do what’s right for him right now. He even wrote a song about it–“Works for Me”. ;)

  32. He even wrote a song about it–”Works for Me”.

    hah – forgot about david’s own response to folks – fan and non fan alike, thinking they know or knew what was/is/will be best for him…

    thanks goboywonder – let david speak for himself, he is the only one who can, lol…

    David Archuleta, Daniel Bedingfield, Toby Lightman

    yeah, yeah
    Hhhmmmmm
    No I won’t make up my mind
    I’m too good at wastin’ time
    And I know, that life is unpredictable
    Just never know what I will find

    Am I gonna stay, oh no
    Am I gonna leave, I don’t think so
    I guess I can define me as that kinda guy
    Maybe it’s a big mistake
    But baby that’s the chance that I’ll take

    You say I don’t know what I want
    But it worked out just fine
    You said it never could be done
    But it worked out just fine …. oh
    You can say anything you want
    But it worked out just fine
    If it works for me
    Then it works for me
    If it works for me
    Then it Works For Me

    I can’t forget the things you said
    Your words keep running through my head
    And I know you’re just trying to help me out
    Thanks but I’ll follow my heart instead

    Am I gonna stay, oh no
    Am I gonna leave, I don’t think so
    I can’t decide between the left side or the right
    Maybe it’s a big mistake
    But baby that’s the chance that I’ll take

    Oh yeah! You say I don’t know what I want
    But it worked out just fine
    You said it never could be done
    But it worked out just fine .. oh
    You can say anything you want

    There were days when a song could not be found
    There were days when my voice would make no sound for me … for me
    But I don’t worry about it where I’m goin’
    ‘Cause I know just where I’m wanna be
    And it’s time for you to see

    You say I don’t know what I want

    You can say anything you want
    But it worked out just fine

    If it works for me
    Then it works for me
    If it works for me
    Then it Works For Me

    ;)

  33. I don’t think is a big problem if he goes for the inspirational/CC route eventually,the genre is very popular, and of course i will love to see him winning a Dove award ha,ha and i think he love that kind of music too,he has friends is the gospel world (Jordan S and Joy W).
    But the point is that i don’t see why he don’t fit on the top 40 type of music, yeah he has values, same many singers there , maybe not the same that David, but still good examples some of them if that is your point,i mean David is a good person, but not the only good person out there ;), again most people just don’t care about the personal life of the singer, the ones who are really concern about that are the hard core fans , the rest only enjoy what they like, is not like every listener is searching for a role model on the top 40 singers, soooo again if he can put good music that people can enjoy , he can survive in the difficult top 40 and tbh at this point i think his problem is more about to have a good promo strategy than anything else. :)

  34. Uh, well, you might want to tell Billboard that this is just a little ol’ church picnic genre

    As I said, that is not the artists’ main concern. Not sure why you feel like arguing that point, but you’re going to be doing it alone; I ain’t playin’…At any rate, David has the talent and personality to go in any direction he chooses. Why would you want to put him in a box? That’s so boring.

  35. he can survive in the difficult top 40 and tbh at this point i think his problem is more about to have a good promo strategy than anything else. :)

    i agree – the one ingredient missing thus far in his story has been in the marketing and promo strategies employed in the media, and on radio. he has proven he can sell units and appeal to his targeted demographic [and beyond it] without the massive promo and propping up by the idol machine and the media others tied more closely to it have received. and even with that, some haven’t managed to reach or exceed some of his numbers, so he doesn’t have a problem, imo, being marketable to his intended audience, and selling well there. imo, he needs that missing ingredient of good, focused, massive [he is a jive artist, so i must be delusional, lol] promo to go to the next level… mileages may vary, and all that other stuff, lol.

  36. Well considering a great deal of ‘Christian’ groups don’t consider Mormons proper Christians, not sure that would fly to begin with. Speculating is nice, but only when David starts proselytizing then maybe I would see his desire to be a CC artist. Also where would David’s Jewish, Muslim, etc fans fit in? Just because he’s a Mormon makes him no more fit for CC than anyone else. Frankly is the POP field that limiting that because he’s not the ‘typical’ teen, he has no place?

  37. Why would you want to put him in a box?

    Hey gg, obviously David has encountered others trying to turn him into “Dave-in-the-box” long before Idol. Now this Tosh.0 got’s David’s head in a box. Run David, run. :lol:

    eta: Keep on runnin’, don’t stop.

  38. that is archiedoll’s comment goboywonder, but it’s all good. run, david, run makes me wanna hear ”running”, lolol… i think i will play it, after i finish jamming to ‘something bout love’ :lol:

  39. he needs that missing ingredient of good, focused, massive [he is a jive artist, so i must be delusional, lol] promo to go to the next level…

    This make me laugh and sad at same time lol, he need now a massive campaign not focus only on his already fans(looks like is the target of jive right now :|), but too to make grow his fanbase and to sell his songs to the casual listeners, the ones ,(and i already said this),that gonna hear or see the song or performance on radio or TV and gonna go to itunes to buy the track, just because they like what they heard. Remember not all the buyers need to be fans. And because i think this last ones are very important too, i want SBL to be performed with a full band, yeah the acoustic version is lovely and well done, but people need to see the real full of energy studio version.

  40. Hey gg, obviously David has encountered others trying to turn him into “Dave-in-the-box” long before Idol. Now this Tosh.0 got’s David’s head in a box. Run David, run.

    Oh. I wasn’t even thinking of Tosh when I said that. Funny.

  41. that is archiedoll’s comment goboywonder

    Oops, was trying to point out how archiedoll’s comment possibly explains what prompted David to write the lyrics for “Works for Me” which gg posted.

  42. i’m a pop top 40 listener and the last thing i ask about a singer is the beliefs or family background or sexual preferences lol.
    Most of people just hear the song, if they like the song , then they buy it.

    Late to the party. . . . . My 22 year old daughter says the same thing- she buys what she likes, for the most part.

    But, as for David, having grown up surrounded by the Mormon church and having most of my family involved I can say that David’s “actions” are as much about his own personal beliefs as opposed to being controlled by his religious beliefs. David seems to be a rather unique soul who just doesn’t fit into the usual perameters that many of us see surrounding the 19 and 20 year olds we know or were back in our younger days.

    It is evident that David likes who he is, is comfortable being considered “young” for his age, and likes being admired for his beliefs and his attitude. Nothing at all wrong with that.

    Tess,

    This is so true about David. He HAS made his own choices. He is a very, very rare young person who isn’t afraid to be who he wants to be, especially for being in the spotlight.

    I also believe that David’s greatest love is music. In time, he will find the deep love of a women that he knows is required for marriage. The problem today is that so many young people think they are in love, but it shallow love.

  43. I think if Adam Lambert has shown us anything, it is that you do not need to “fit in” to be a successful artist. In the past decade, how many out gay men have enjoyed the Top 40 success Adam has?

    True. But I think that the most important parameters of Top 40 are probably sex and rebellion, given the age group that it’s aimed at and the kinds of music that have tended to dominate it over the years. If that’s the case, then Adam fits there better than quite a few of the other Idols who’ve struggled there because of their more within-the-rules approaches — not just David A but Elliott and Kris come to mind, and Jordin over the long run. for example.

    Not that there aren’t exceptions to the sex/rebellion-is-all thing. And, accordingly, each of those people has had one or a few Top 40 hits. But I do think that all of that group face a serious/niceness/play-in-the-rules/it’s-all-about-the-music barrier to really becoming a persistent Top 40 star because they don’t really have sex/rebellion as a dominant thing on their radar screens.

    I don’t know how well Adam will last in the format either, actually, but he does skew a bit more in the sex/rebellion direction than David A and some of the others do, gay man or not.

    David A is a lovely singer and a hard worker and cute as a bug. I don’t know that he’s exactly found his niche yet, but I’m sure he will. He’s serious about this thing and has the goods. Very nice performance of the song.

  44. I would love to see Lady Gaga sing this thing live and on pitch.

  45. I think if Adam Lambert has shown us anything, it is that you do not need to “fit in” to be a successful artist. In the past decade, how many out gay men have enjoyed the Top 40 success Adam has?

    Truth be told, you couldn’t have done a better job of making my point. Adam is exactly what Top 40 pop culture is all about today: Extreme behavior, overt sexuality, club style music, flamboyant wardrobe…Glambert and his imagery is the anti-Archie, and perfectly symbolizes just how out of place David is in today’s pop culture scene.

  46. There are many of us that are happy David A is the way he is. Many of us are turned off by some of todays over the top lyrics and perfromances. I highly recommend seeing a David A LIVE concert. Negativo-your name suits you. You are speaking of your taste which is fine but I don’t see why you are making it David’s problem Your comments always stand out and I’m wondering if your desire to control David A and his career has become way to personal.

  47. Negativo-your name suits you. You are speaking of your taste which is fine but I don’t see why you are making it David’s problem. Your comments always stand out and I’m wondering if your desire to control David A and his career has become way to personal.

    Glad to know that you have successfully diagnosed my pathological desire to control Archie’s career! You see, my own personal problems date all the way back to my difficult childhood as a latch key kid with divorced parents. I now know that ever since I’ve been harboring a subconscious obsession to exact revenge on a world that caused me such pain and suffering at an impressionable age.

    My lost youth apparently left me so shattered and traumatized that I now feel compelled to take over David’s life, manipulate it as if it were my own, and exact my revenge upon society after all these years.

    Anyway, it’s off to therapy I go. Too-da-loo!

  48. Truth be told, you couldn’t have done a better job of making my point. Adam is exactly what Top 40 pop culture is all about today: Extreme behavior, overt sexuality, club style music, flamboyant wardrobe…Glambert and his imagery is the anti-Archie, and perfectly symbolizes just how out of place David is in today’s pop culture scene.

    Truth be told, I actually think you just made my point. On Season 8, the Adam we saw during auditions, in the Hollywood Rounds and during most of the season was not the Adam you see today. Wasn’t it Kara who called him a “Rock God” and Randy who told him that Rock was the kind of music he should be doing? The point I was trying to make is that if you do what you want to do — and not what others think you should be doing — you will be happy, and as Adam has proven, successful.

  49. Glad to know that you have successfully diagnosed my pathological desire to control Archie’s career! You see, my own personal problems date all the way back to my difficult childhood as a latch key kid with divorced parents. I now know that ever since I’ve been harboring a subconscious obsession to exact revenge on a world that caused me such pain and suffering at an impressionable age.

    My lost youth apparently left me so shattered and traumatized that I now feel compelled to take over David’s life, manipulate it as if it were my own, and exact my revenge upon society after all these years.

    Anyway, it’s off to therapy I go. Too-da-loo!

    lololol – may not agree with everything you say, but i like the wit. beauty and good looks fade anyway, so having other talents, with a measure of wit and a smattering of intelligence is a good fallback :lol:
