Cook in Manila – Mentions Archie (David)

Cook is touring in the Philippines and during some interviews, he mentions Archie!  I still admire the friendship and respect these two artists have for each other.  They are genuinely happy for each others’ success!

PressCon where Cook mentions “Archie Territory” in relation to a question about Jessica Sanchez’s singing skills.

A Magical Night of Music

Mark Nilan ( David’s Musical Director for the MKOC Tour) is Musical Director for this concert to benefit two charities, one of which is the Symphonie Jeunesse – the youth symphony that accompanied David on the Los Angeles portion of his My Kind of Christmas Tour.  Symphonie Jeunesse gives youth 12-18 an opportunity for professional training to help them pursue advanced study in music.  If you love great music, are in the Southern California area and would like to support a worthy cause, consider attending A Magical Night of Music!

I attended the MKOC concert at the Grove Theater in Anaheim, and the youth symphony was amazing!  When David sings with a live orchestra, it just elevates his performance to another level.  Here’s Ave Maria with David and the Symphonie Jeunesse – just beautiful.

The Archuband Reunion!

I had a short tweet convo with Steven J Robinson regarding his tweet saying the Archuband – all four of them – would be reuniting to play a show for another American Idol participant.  So far we only know that it’s not Jason Castro or David Cook – oh and that the show is NOT going to be in Hawaii. I hope anyone who attends takes vids!

I love that Steven still uses the nickname Archuband – it shows that once you have been touched by David’s music, you will always be connected to him.  We also have high hopes that the Archuband will reunite in 2014 for a World Wide Tour!  We can dream!

Hey!  That’s Kurt Bestor!

Grace posted some interesting information in Comments regarding Kurt Bestor being featured in a “Foundation for a Better Life” TV commercial!  Since “sleuth” is our middle name, we found a video of that commercial to share with you!

WWTT? – Yes We Did!!

Another successful trending party – it only took about 40 minutes before “Let The Feelings Begin David Archuleta” was trending World Wide!  Way to go Go-Getters!

Buzz for Broken & BEGIN.

Buzz continues for the snippet of Broken as well as for the BEGIN. album.  You may have seen these site logos before, but they update snippet clips as well as provide promo for BEGIN. pre-order information.  Please visit these sites and leave a comment – David would surely appreciate the support!

Creative Fan Vids

This first vid is a mash up of several David music videos which tell the story of the stages of love from your first Crush to the pain of a breakup.  Very creative!

This second vid is an acoustic cover of Crush by Abandoning Sunday – it is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and just as David recorded covers of his favorite songs, this cover of Crush pays homage to the original.

This next vid was posted on You Tube in April, but I must have missed it.  The song “The Distance” really captures how fans are missing David while he’s away.

Sometimes you don’t have cover art for digital songs or albums, or you just don’t care for the official album cover and would like something more to your liking.  Try Coverlandia – it’s a site where you can view and download fanmade cover art for a plethora of different artists.  You can join the site to upload your own artwork (I’m looking at you Juan) or just view and vote on cover art that you like.  Here’s a sample of an alternate cover for BEGIN. – not that the actual cover isn’t amazing – it’s just a different style of artwork.  There are lots of different single and album covers submitted by fans – go take a look!

A Look Back – “On The Bus” Vlog

I just love watching David talk – this bumpy bus ride makes for some shaky video quality, but you can just hear the joy in his voice when he talks about singing with the symphony at the concert in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  I miss seeing him make his closing peace sign….

  8. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hi everyone! :-)
    Kalei, thanks for yet another great post. I loved the commercial with Kurt Bestor in it! Great detective work alright! Thanks Grace! :-) It was fun watching Cookies pressconf too. :-)

    I had just turned off the light to go to sleep and had the urge to listen to Broken again before I do, so I pulled up Pocoelsy’s merry-go-round on youtube and stuck the earphones in my ears…..ahhhh….in the dark, with the song loud and clear in my ears…truly sublime. Makes my heart ache with the beauty of it. David surely created a.winner there!
    <3333333333

    Vabeach – enjoy your holiday!! :-)

  9. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Lol, just saw the pic of Cook holding the pic of our David. That’s not the first time is it? Has David ever been asked to pose with a pic of Cook? Not that I recall…not in recent years anyway…? I wonder if Cook feels a little ..ho-hum…about being asked to pose with David? Either way, he goes along with it – kudos to him. He’s a.good guy and i’m glad david got to share the idol experience with him. :-)

  10. sydnie says:

  29. Great post Kalei.
    VaBeach enjoy your vacation.
    Fun trending last night WWTT5 WOO! WOO!.
    going to go vote be back in a minute.

  30. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    kimk, true, I think this cd will be incredible, can hardly wait to hear each & every song, over & over & over again :grin:

  31. Kimk i wrote @DavidArchie @Kariontour I love all the songs but BROKEN has a meaning for me. also SWOWK. Hard to choose, love all of them.

  32. kimk says:

    Beth ha my ears hurt from the previews!! pretty dang excited.. his voice
    well whatever it is they did an amazing job recording him!!

  33. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Well gotta get some things done around the house, will be lurking when I can, have a great day all!

    kimk, lol, listening to the snippets ALOT?, lol. I agree, sounds like they really let his voice shine & none of that fake sounding autotone stuff. TTYL :grin:

  34. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH BRADLEY. ;smile: :smile:

  35. kimk says:

    Linda nothing like an original from David.. and I bet once we hear the whole songs we may change our minds some on what our other favs are.
    have a feeling we will be happy and surprised!

  36. josie says:

    Shanny- If you’re still here, do you mind if I visit with you for a sec?

  37. Kimk very true. After we hear the whole songs who knows. Right now. Beautiful has the least plays, but you just never know until you get the whole enchilada. It might just blow us away like Broken

  38. A Fan says:

    Thank you FOD for this Fantastic Post….Ave Maria sung by David gives me the chills. Such a beautiful song and David sings it with sooooooooooooo much feeling. Love it with the orchestra so amazing. Just love everthing he sings. Miss him….can’t wait for his return.

  39. A Fan says:

    The two photo’s…The one by Matt Clayton and Jake Chessum would have made exceptional album covers IMHO. He looks stunning in both of them. IMO he morphs into his age of 21 in those photo’s. So handsome.

  40. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Josie, lol, I just saw your comment to me last night. just finished reading yesterdays comments. what’s up?

  41. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    My favourite snippet is a no-brainer: Broken by a mile.
    I also highly suspect that it may be my very favourite David song ever but to be fair to my other favs, I should listen to the whole song before I go knocking the other songs down the list. lol

  42. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Sorry I missed you Sydnie. You’re upcoming holiday sounds fun!

  43. sarahhazel says:

    Happy 108th day!!! Thanks for another super stupendous post, Kaeli!!!
    Top pic = gorgeousness to the max!
    Woot! for WWTT last night!
    Love all the buzz going on for BEGIN.!!!
    Awesome photos and vids by ultra-talented Archies!!! The best fans in the universe!!!

  44. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–love the tweet by a Beav fan saying D is perfect….haha….

  45. sarahhazel says:

    Fave one based on listening to the snippets a gazillion times: BROKEN.

  46. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I thought Kari had already sent that box of postcards. I was disappointed that I forgot to send one for the box. It would take a.week for a postcard to get to her…Kari if by some miracle you’re out there reading this…is it possible to hold off sending the package just a few more days?? lol I know…I’m asking a lot but a girls gotta try, right?! ;-)

  47. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel, it seems that Broken is the clear favourite in the fandom?

  48. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–Yes, looks like it!!! Squeeeeee!!!!

  49. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I hope he understands that it is because it is a GREAT song and not that people are playing favourites because he wrote it.

  50. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Josie, I’m sorry – I tried to wait but it’s after 3:30am here and I have got a fairly busy day tomorrow. I’ll check comments tomorrow or you can wait to catch me again or you can get my email from the FOD MODS or tweet me at @AussieArchieFan. Your choice. :-)

    Take care everyone. :-)

  51. sarahhazel says:

    See ya later , Shanny!

  52. josie says:

    Shanny-Hi. :) I was planning to respond to your discussion w/ ksf the other night, but got detained for a few days.lol…Guess I just feel the need to explain where I’m coming from, ‘cuz I feel a little misunderstood myself these days.

    First, if I’ve said/will say anything that sounds arrogant/disrespectful, I apologize. The fact that it takes me 3 yrs to say some things is hopefully a clue that I’d never intentionally hurt anyone. :) But..I’ve done a lot of homework, & some LDS doctrines conflict w/the very foundation of historic Christianity, so that’d explain why there’s a clash between the two sometimes. Most mainstream Christians view the Bible as God’s only authoritative written Word. They (me) read that there’s only one God who created & rules over the universe, & He’s Spirit; that Jesus is God incarnate, the only person who pre-existed w/ God; & that God saved us from outer darkness thru His death & resurrection, ‘cuz no one else is perfect except Him. I know some people don’t like those doctrines, but without them, Christianity isn’t….itself. Looks like the conflict has gone on for awhile, & it probably will until they can all get on the same page. So I hate that it makes you feel persecuted, but I’m kind of tired of walking on eggshells, too.

    (part 2 coming up shortly)

  53. lurker 1001 says:

    Thank you, Josie 8-)

  54. josie says:

    Shanny- Part 2: You have to understand, this gets personal for me, too. It’s not a bunch of words to me. It’s a living, breathing relationship with God. I believe He rules everything, so I rely on Him to meet all my needs. Every day, I simply ask Him to be with me & give me the help that need. He always does. And yes, I worship Jesus as God, & trust that he has forgiven my sins. So when someone devotes 2 yrs of their life to essentially saying “You’re God ain’t all that” & “His own death wasn’t enough”, heck, yes…I’m going to have an issue with that. lol. And now that someone I dearly love is doing it, not gonna lie. It hurts my heart. It’s the same feeling that we all get when someone in the media makes David look bad, & we want to set them straight because we’re the ones who know what he’s like. Well, sort of.

    I still adore David TO PIECES, though. That’ll never, ever change. Part of what I love about him is the fact that he wants to serve God at all. And his tender heart, and just…his desire to do the right thing. It’s awesome. He is just..a special person.
    And dang it, now I need kleenexes again…Did I mention that I hate conflicts? lol.

    I’m done now. Tks for listening, & sorry if I offended anyone.

    This is all he’s known all his life. I hurts to know that he feels he has to pay a price when the price has already been paid. Appreciate your stepping out.

  65. josie says:

    Martha & ksf~ Tks. I appreciate it. kimk~ lolol. Tks for making me laugh. I needed it.

  66. . says:

    Josie, I feel the sincerity of your comments, but the difference I’ve observed on this site is I’ve not seen the LDS posters bring up religion or their doctrine, least not as much as others. My observations have been that they post about it to clarify something they feel was misrepresented or to answer questions. I think Shanny felt bad due to the use of certain terminology. She’s been very clear that she does not hold any judgement for what each and everyone of us choose to believe. I’ve not ever seen an LDS comment calling you or anyone else out for what you believe. LDS DO believe that what Christ died for was enough for us to gain salvation and eternal life and through him is the only way. We really aren’t as different as you seem to think. I guess I’m not sure why you feel like you are walking on eggshells as most on here are not LDS, and tbh most of the LDS posters have left fansites for the very reasons Shanny was feeling.

    I know censorship is not a popular concept here but I’m with the regular posters like Candy and Kimk who have mentioned that it is preferable if religion not be brought here. I know some think it is unavoidable because of where David is right now but I don’t see why religious beliefs and doctrines of any religion ever need to be brought up. Personally feel David went out of his way to avoid that and why he wants to distance himself as much as he has as to not upset or offend any of his fans who may feel as Josie does about what he’s doing, just don’t see the need to voice that here on a fansite.

    I personally just want to discuss his music and am very excited about this new project think it’s going to be all kinds of fabulous.

  67. Canadianarchie says:

    Thanks for posting my collages of David! <3 he's so inspiring!

  68. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    .say – I can only speak for myself when I say that anything I’ve said or will say is not about calling anyone out or passing judgement. PLEASE believe that. It is about caring for people, just as Jesus did. When he saw people going in a certain direction, he didn’t smile and say, “Oh, well at least they have good intentions.” No! He spoke out because he cared. Obviously, none of us can claim to be perfect but as Christians we really are “trying to be like Jesus,” that is the standard. That’s why I (and others) are compelled to say something. It’s way too much to go into here but there are VERY significant differences between true Christianity and mormonism. I’m not saying that to be disrespectful or hurtful but it’s true. As josie said, it hurts my heart, not only for David, but for everyone involved.

  69. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello .says! I totally agree with you :grin: Thank you for saying it so well.

    Josie, while I dont believe you want to hurt anyones feelings & you have every right to say what & how you feel, and while I am not LDS, I have seen some hurtful terms used towards people who are LDS. Someone said they didnt used the term they used in a comment, but agreed with what was said, so same thing in my book. I, for one, will not pretend that I know what is for sure in this world & what isnt. All anyone of us can do is follow our own hearts & minds & live our lives the best we can & try not to make it at the expense of others :grin:

    Tolerance is key. Everyone feels what they believe in to be the truth, they’re truth. Its when people are so arrogant as to tell people they are wrong for what they believe in, that they’re truth is the only truth, thats what I have big problems with them. David, as .says said in their comment, is very careful not to make others feel bad or wrong for what they believe. From what I’ve observed, Davids heart is tolerant, humble & loving. He understands there are different views, beliefs & religions & I dont mean to speak for him, but from what I’ve seen, as long as those people with different views, show love, compassion, understanding, respect & that human rights are maintained(the right to vote, speak or write own thoughts, education, wear what you want, womens rights), everythings good :grin:

    David has alot of Love & gratitude in his heart & I think he just wants to share it with others. So with that in mind, can we just talk about his music & why we’re fans in the first place & the things that happen in our lives daily, that we share, which I love to hear about :grin: Look at all the spazzing about the snippets, just wait until the cd comes out, Archuletaville will be rockin’ :grin:

  70. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    Martha – thanks for that vid. Wow…it’s been a year. I guess that’s comforting in a way to see that maybe a couple of years will pass more quickly than we think.

    omg u guys going crazy here! everytime i try to type in that stupid twitter reply box my computer freezes and i have to restart!!! am i the only one in the world who this is happening to????

  76. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    Thanks again, josie. Enjoy your weekend everyone! :)

  77. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    hi/bye tami lyn :)

  78. tami lyn says:

    ksf- hi ! :) wish i was 21 so i could marry david :(

  79. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yes, just talking about David’s career (devine album BEGIN.) is what I believe should be the topic of conversation, but unfortunately, because of what he is doing right now and not able to be active in his career, the subject of religious difference will pop up it’s ugly head every now and then.
    My wish is that BEGIN. will be a big hit and we will not have any room for other comments except SPAZZING OVER BEGIN. SUCCESS, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. tami lyn says:

    ksf- are u on twitter yet? twitter suks right now :(

  81. tami lyn says:

    listening to michael buble right now and so hoping david goes in that sexy direction when he gets his cute self back to the USA!!!

  82. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    tami lyn – who knows? Maybe he’ll prefer older women when he returns. Lol.

  83. tami lyn says:

    hey all you 20-something david fans out there! do you know how lucky you are?!! you actually have a chance with david!

  84. bds says:

    ksf, josie – I don t’ think that religion should be debated here either, but it is hard not to respond to your comments. I would suggest that you go read and study about the Nicene Creed to understand where a lot of your beliefs came from and your idea that nobody can believe a little differently and still be considered Christians.
    On a different note, I really liked the snippet of Broken and I think the album will fantastic.

  85. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    tami lyn – no I’m not on Twitter. I have an account but have never used it.
    Okay I’m really gone this time. Adios! :)

  86. tami lyn says:

    ksf- omg now that would be a dream come true :) would make alot of us very happy haha!

  87. tami lyn says:

    ksf- ok bye. thanks for talking to me! :)

  88. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    bds – thanks. I would also suggest that you do some investigating as well, starting with Joseph Smith.

  89. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    And…it’s a lot more than “a little differently.”

  90. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Bye, tami lyn! :)

  91. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol what are you talking about..
    oh and could be he goes very young too.

  92. tami lyn says:

    kim- tried to tell u on twitter that i like your new avi! but i can’t reply on there. don’t know why :(

  93. kimk says:

    tamilyn thanks.. found the pic made sense. me in Hawaii.. enjoying life.

  94. tami lyn says:

    yeah it’s a cute summery pic with the water and all! are u having problems with twitter lately?

  95. . says:

    Ksf – you just told all the Mormons they’re not true Christians, sorry if you can’t see why that may be offensive.

    I’ve never told you what you are or are not and please don’t feel sorry for me and I would guess David doesn’t need you to feel bad for him either. As far as anyone sincerely interested in investigating the Mormon church please feel free to call the missionaries I’m sure they’d be more than happy to come and discuss with you what they believe. The missionaries invite people to hear a message if they are not interested they usually ask if there is anything they can do for you (performing service) and if not they will very politely thank you for your time and be on their way. But please stop telling me I’m not a true Christian and I promise I won’t tell you you’re wrong about your beliefs, oh wait I never have. Sorry for the being a little snippy but I again don’t think anyone needs to be telling anyone else what is right or wrong on here. Why is it so hard to steer away from the subject of mMormonism and whether it’s right or wrong, I nor any other Mormon has ever used this forum to proselyte for the church so why do you feel the need to make your point constantly about how you feel. We get it, we got it a long time ago. But making statements that you do is not being tolerant or how you put it “like Jesus”. Sorry for the rant.

    Going back to my pledge to not discuss religion no matter what gets said about mine. Have a good day.

  96. tami lyn says:

    i think it’s a hot topic right now (here in the united states)because we have a mormon running for president.

  97. kimk says:

    that pic of Cook is hot.

  99. josie says:

    >say- And THAT’s why it’s like walking on eggshells. lol. My motives & intentions seemed to always get missed…Anyway, I actually agree that this isn’t a good place to discuss “religion”. That’s why I was surprised that peeps here were discussing it ALOT for awhile after “the announcement”, & even directing folks to an LDS site. It felt like the focus shifted overnight. I never joined those conversations because..funny as it sounds, I only wanted to enjoy David’s music, too. I’ve only said things recently because I’VE felt misinterpreted. And I just want to enjoy his music now, too. Beth should like that.

    So yeah. Maybe if there was a way to separate the two, like…”People who want to discuss David’s music, go here”. “People who want to discuss anything related to the mission, go here.” lol. Or…just…”New Rule: If you can’t stick to talking about David’s music, you’re banned.” lol.

    Or maybe I should just ban myself. Since apparently I can never say anything right. Sorry.

  100. kimk says:

    tamilyn sometimes I do have trouble with twitter.. like most things it probs too big for its ole self.

    BEGIN. No cruising. We are ROFL and stopping traffic.

  101. kimk says:

    no banning anyone or yourselves. :(

    ok.. maybe that ninny who used to not like David wearing scarves cause it was girlie.

  102. Tami lyn i don’t have any problems with my tweeter. It posts comments right away.

  103. kimk says:

    read on twitter not only Steven Tyler, JLo, maybe Randy but also Nigel and Simon might be out at American Idol.. they might downsize in general.
    oh and it might actually be Adam Lambert as a judge..
    boy talk about shake up!!

  104. josie says:

    kimk~You’re awesome.

  105. tami lyn says:

    thanks linda :) must be my computer then.

  106. kimk says:

    I am hoping for very detailed and rambly liner notes explaining everything about BEGIN!
    I want to know all about Broken.. ( who is he singing to and are they ok) and why he chose each song to cover and of course
    all about just what BEGIN. means.

  107. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    tami lyn – did you ever figure out how to get your videos on YouTube?

  108. tami lyn says:

    ksf- not quite yet but i did ask a friend to help me who has done it before. she has a webcam tho don’t know if i need that or not. don’t have one as of now. thanks for asking :) wish i had grown up with all this technology so it wouldn’t be so confusing to me.

  109. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    btw, josie please don’t ban yourself, lol, or feel bullied. I certainly don’t or won’t. You know what your intentions were and I’m sure most people do. Sometimes truth hurts, no matter how its said.

  110. Grace says:

    I am honored to make a part of today’s post. Yipeeeeee!!!! lol.
    Thanks Kalei for the mega post!!!
    Just browsed mj’s blog. Who the heck is girlygirltoo? Always negative. Grrrr.

    ksf, do you believe David wouldn’t go to heaven because Mormonism is not true Christian?

  111. tami lyn says:

    if anyone wonders what i sound like i’m a mixture of (and i know this sounds crazy, lol) adele, selena, & cheryl cole. i have a very young sounding voice which has bothered me for years and then recently i realized it’s a good thing :) never knew if i was an alto or soprano but someone recently told me that i’m a mezzo soprano whatever that is. guess i should google it because i am ignorant on music terms lol.

  112. Really says:

    It IS offensive calling Mormons ‘Not true Christians’. How in the world can anyone think that’s not offensive? I don’t tell you what to believe. I don’t want you to tell me that I’m not a true Christian, because TELLING someone that is not very ‘Christian-like’ yourself. Is my church’s name NOT ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’? JESUS CHRIST is in the title. If you don’t feel like walking on egg shells, stop making douche-y comments and you won’t have to.

  113. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    tami lyn – I feel you on technology, haha. But, I have uploaded a couple of things before on YouTube. I think there are a couple of ways to do it:

    1. On the YouTube site you can record yourself with a webcam, as you mentioned. The site will then walk you through how to actually publish it to the site.

    2. If you already have a vid that you want to use, you can just hit “Upload” on the site and then select the one that you want to use from wherever it’s stored on your computer.

  114. GGDoorsfan says:

    Hola Everyone – The snippets sound great! Want to hear more of “Broken”, “Beautiful” and “True Colors”.

  115. . says:

    Josie- only thing I have a problem with is being told what I believe to be truth is called an absolute wrong, if that makes sense. I understand that most here don’t believe what I do but they’re not telling me I’m wrong just as I’ve personally not seen LDS posters telling you or anyone else you are wrong. We are never going to see things the same way and for me that’s absolutely fine but if someone is asking questions about your religion I wouldn’t try and answer the question or clarify something you felt was stated incorrectly I would let you or someone who shares your beliefs do that. The only reason people directed anyone to LDS sites was to let them clarify their own religion when questions were asked. Again, no one needs to ban themselves, all Shanny asked was that you think about what you’re saying when bringing up or commenting on religion, such as put yourself in their shoes and how would you feel if it were being said to you about your beliefs. And think it wise for no one to try and make anyone feel they are wrong in their own beliefs even if that’s how you may feel, that to me is the tolerance and respect part.

    I’m just glad David has all these fantastic fans willing to support him in his career, now telling the rest of the world they’re “wrong” for not seeing what we see in David, now that’s different ;)

  116. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, yeah, long liner notes. Can’t wait to hear the whole album, but especially Broken. Broken has become even more of a mystery after listening to the snippet. So excited!!!

  117. kimk says:

    GG hola great choices.. I as well! Everybody Hurts for some reason also speaks to me.

  118. kimk says:

    cq would take a guess he is saying to someone who he is thinking about getting to know better but sees too much turmoil going on with them?

  119. GGDoorsfan says:

    Hi And Hugsssssssssssssssssssss(((((((hug))))))) Kimk! Thought I’d mosey on over here today to chat for a spell with the FOD gang… It’s a little cooler down here today, but not by much, lol…

  120. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Really – please do some research. Any church can put Jesus Christ in their title…that has nothing to do with the fundamental beliefs of the church. And…you sound real “Christlike” yourself, just based on your last sentence. Thanks for being so classy ;)

  121. kimk says:

    tamilyn can we hear something? :)

    love all you guys..

  122. Really says:

    Ksf- you should be one to talk about ‘class’. Your comments I have seen here have been so rude and you are so set in your ways that you think that you are always so right. You are the least classy person I have seen on this site. Ever.

  123. Really says:

    Oh, and do some research yourself so you can stop making ignorant comments about other people’s beliefs. Thanks.

  124. kimk says:

    Oh, Kimk that sounds cool, too much turmoil in a person you want to get to know better. Let the Broken speculation continue, lol.

  126. tami lyn says:

    thanks ksf!!! :)

  127. kimk says:

    GG lol.

  128. tami lyn says:

    can u even imagine how fun it will be to speculate about Broken after we have heard the whole song??!! we are gonna be busy doing that for weeks or months i bet lol!

  129. tami lyn says:

    thanks for asking kim :) wish i wasn’t so darn ignorant about the internet. i will try to do something!

  130. Candy says:

    sigh—prime example of why I prefer to float in my pool instead of posting on here most of the time! Its isnt the LDS that are chasing fans from sites…its the constant name calling, finger pointing and personal bashing that is driving them away.
    Discussing religion and politics aren’t for me. Anything else is far game.

  131. bychance says:

    Most days it’s so fun to come here. Some days, not as much. It’s so hard when people have very deep, heartfelt reasons for why they believe what they believe. I just don’t think those feelings can’t adequately be discussed in this kind of setting…..maybe if we could all sit down with each other and truly share our hearts it would be different. It’s just not possible on a fan site, is it?

    We can share our hearts about David because we all agree that we love him, he’s amazing, wonderful…….we can spazz to our heart’s content. But when there are differences…….. those are times when nothing works like face to face, or personal correspondence, etc. Comments on a fan site run the risk of increasing the misunderstandings and hurt on both sides. It just doesn’t work….imo…..and it certainly changes the good feeling that is usually here. I think we have a LOT in common as David’s fans. Just my two cents worth…….(maybe I don’t know what I am talking about being a newbie and all.)

    l

    Can go back to the night when Beth was making reservations for the Broken Wing in the Archuhospital? I was laughing my head off.

    And about Broken………I think David should come home just for the Olympics. He deserves a gold medal for vocal gymnastics. I give him a 10!!!!

  132. kimk says:

    ohh I vote for that send him to the Olympics!!!

    he can sing Be Still My Soul.. seems quite appropriate!!

  133. bychance says:

    meant Can ‘we’ go back………

  134. Grace says:

    Good to see you, GG!!! Time to come out and join the fun!
    My favorite is Broken. Also was surprised to hear Angel in a good way. Be Still My Soul is a tear-jerker. Love the arrangement of BEAUTIFUL. Somewhere Only We Know, for anything pop rockish from David, I am dead.
    tami lyn, wanna hear your singing voice. :)

    “If a profound gulf separates my neighbor’s belief from mine, there is always the golden bridge of tolerance” author unknown

    “Tolerance can lead to learning something.” Jakob Dylan

    Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle. Helen Keller

    Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others. John F Kennedy

    Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding. Mahatma G.

    Tolerating, waiting another 3 weeks for BEGIN. is something we will all have trouble with. BethFOD :lol:

  137. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    By Chance, Your room at the Broken Wing has been reserved, no worries :lol: Yes all 10′ s from the judges for David :grin:

    Candy, I agree. I for one will not speak of religion here again. Not that I do really, but I wont be getting into the fray anymore, lol. There is so much to talk about right now in regards to the new music we have coming, not to mention the current music from David we do have. I think theres a Rainbow video coming sometime, WOOOOT. So much Epic wonderfulness coming our way :grin:

  138. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Really – thanks! That means so much :)

    tami lyn – ur welcome! Hope to see something soon :P

  139. Candy says:

    Thats how I feel Beth- there is so much to be excited for with the wonderful snippets from BEGIN.
    If the the two presidential candidates can’t talk rationally about religion or politics in a face to face situation, I don’t know what makes any of us think they can be discussed here.

    Candy, Right On Sister! :grin: BEGIN. is going to be spectacular, I can hardly take the waiting :grin:

  142. . says:

    Beth- thank you for those quotes, very well said. Was really hoping the discussion could have at least remained civil :( . At least Ksf tells me in a kind tone that I’m not a true Christian ;)

    In a perfect world I would NEVER discuss religion on here (and have never brought the subject up, ever) but feel I have every right to defend myself to call myself a Christian, no one else has the right to define that for me and I stand by your right to call yourself whatever you want and I won’t try to change anyone on here to believe what I believe but I will ALWAYS jump in to defend myself and my faith when attacked or defined by others and I’m sorry that it makes it an unpleasant place to be, but maybe Ksf needs to think how she may feel if I took her religion and tried to define it the way I see it. But that is something I will NEVER do.

  143. Candy says:

    kimk-thats one of my fav Idol moments, his vocals were glorious and I loved when he stood and walked (strutted) down the staircase….he ozzed confidence! “He came a genius…and he left a genius.” Yes he certainly did!

  144. "Love Is Spoken Here" says:

    I am a Mormon. I belong to the “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.” Jesus Christ is the “chief corner stone” of our religion (Ephesians 2:20). Mormons are “true Christians”. We are taught to be tolerant and respectful of other religions and people. If you would like to learn about the “correct” teachings and doctrines of the LDS religion, I suggest you invite the missionaries to your home. The missionaries will answer your questions and also treat you with kindness and love.
    This is not the appropriate forum to discuss and criticize various religions. I am sure that many followers of FOD will go to different sites if the disrespect continues.
    Thank you!

  145. nora says:

    have been gone all day and just read all the comments. who has the right to tell someone what and how they worship God. I don’t believe this is the place for that. Let’s just get back to why we are all here, and everybody keep their beliefs to themselves. David has never pushed anything about his religion on us, he is probably the most tolerant person I know. Love all the snippets on BEGIN, he does a great job on all, but broken is wonderful. Love your post today Kalei, Good we have FOD, stay cool, it is so hot here and humid, tomorrow and the next week will be no better.

    Candy you can tell at the end all he gave and all it meant to him.. he is a genius.

    I would love to get down and dirty(in a good way) and debate the heck out of things (anything)…but I prefer to see my opponent face to face rather then hiding behind a keyboard where too many things can be misconstrued, taken the wrong way. I for one love a healthy debate! Just not here. For those that are comfortable doing so here… have at it!

    .says, your welcome & I understand. Now, as I included one of my own quotes,lol, will you be able to tolerate waiting 3 weeks until BEGIN. is released? :grin:

    Candy, In some of the snippets, the way he can sing some of the words, just one word adds so much to the song. I LOVE how he sings Beautiful, say & down in the snippet of Beautiful, incredible. The way he sings eyes in DGU or I in Broken. Yes, was a genius, is a genius, will always be a genius :grin:

  150. Candy says:

    kimk-To me his expression showed that he was happy with how he delivered the song, a genuine “Whewww, I did good”

  151. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Try and get inbetween The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd during one of their debates :roll: Oh my heck, the feathers fly, let me tell ya!

    Beth- How he vocalizes is beyond description, each vowel, letter takes on a meaning of its own.

  153. bds says:

    Sorry, I should have bit my fingers before reacting and typing a response to ksf. I am not going to say anything about religion again no matter what is said about the LDS beliefs. If I come here in the future to learn about David, I will ignore a few peoples remarks. Being an RM myself, I am sure David has had the lecture about avoiding heated debates on doctrine as it doesn’t help anybody in changing other’s views.

  154. Candy says:

    boy bds aint that the truth, you can debate till the cows come home and it wont change a thing. People are going to believe/think what they want…even God couldn’t change some minds when he walked on water! So a fansite forum isnt going to do it either! :)

    SIGH!!!!! Right about now a vlog from David would do wonders for this site.
    Wishing he was here to be part of all the BEGIN. excitement.

  157. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Candy, Exactly. He really is an amazing vocalist. I love that performance of Elevator he did at Z100. He did his own thing with the background music, he just sang it the way he was feeling & it was incredible. His gift for musical improv :grin:

    Hey bds, I know its easier said than done, but all we can do is try :grin: Good to see you here at FOD :grin:

  158. findthecure says:

    wow, the comments today. I routinely lurk here, but rarely leave comments. I really enjoy this site. It is usually a haven for me. comments are usually so creative and positive.

    I find this site more enjoyable than a place like mj’s. I went there after the Broken snippet was released expecting to find lots of “a-aha” comments. And there were lots of great comments….from fans. But I found other distracting comments from those who still don’t like his voice and its frustrating to read those comments. But, I coming to accept there are many who will likely never like David for what ever reason. “Edgy” seems to be the word people are arguing recently. Personally, I don’t care if he’s edgy or not.

    Thats why I like this site so much. I can come here and everyone is squeeeeing over the snippets. I don’t have to convince anyone or defend my interest to anyone. We all agree the kid is talented and are happy for his music. It’s nice to find people who enjoy the same things you do.

    I’ve decided that I don’t need to convince anyone else why I like David. I like him, and that’s enough. I enjoy his music and as long as he makes it, I’m happy about that too. I’m even happy that his fan base may be a little smaller than we all would like. After all, if he were the megastar that we all hope for…..don’t know that he could give the fans that personal touch that we’ve all become accoustomed to. Time will tell, eh.

  159. josie says:

    bychance~ I think you are on to something there. :( And now I think I hate the internet.

Oh yeah….Some really cute kid that could sing his face off, & make you go limp when he looked in your eyes. What was his name? Um..Dav..David…something. Enchilada. I think that’s it.

    has anybody heard if BEGIN is going to be on Itunes? I really hope so, I think that would be good, at least if people don’t want all the songs, at least they can buy the ones they want, what about Target? I hope they will have copies in the stores for purchase. Are you limited to a certain amount to buy at one time to have it count towards his total sold, if so why is that? Good trending last night, Archie Fans Rock. Love you all!!!

  165. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    josie – lol “Enchilada”

  166. I am an everyday lurker, and usually spend most of my time listening. However that does not mean that I am any less a fan. It was sad coming here tonight and reading the comments. Why does this always seem to happen when we all are so excited for David?

    I feel that it is being very disrespectful of David, members of his church, his beliefs and his mission … degrading the LDS church. The problem with our country…and the world for that matter….is the lack of religious tolerance. (IMO)
    How many wars and conflicts have been caused in our world by religious differences ?
    Think about that? It does not mean you need to embrace the LDS church. You can believe whatever you wish….but to degrade another belief is heartless. We should all have religious freedom to believe and worship as we wish without being told we are wrong. I am not a Mormon, but do believe Mormons are Christians.

    Pit-ing one religion against another is a thankless exercise. No one will ever be right.
    Religion is based on faith. Why can we all just embrace each other for the beautiful people we are without putting up walls to divide us?

    I have never heard David chat about his beliefs, nor try to influence others to follow the LDS church. I think he has always gone out of his way to love and care for others…..never talking about his religion. He is respectful of everyone. He may not agree with what they believe…but he doesn’t tell them they are wrong. I have also been around many people of the LDS faith who have never talked to me about my beliefs or tried to change me at all.

    If people just forget about religious labels, and looked inside each others hearts… we would be living in a happier, more peaceful world. I think that David does that….and his example is something that always bears imitation.

    I am voting for keeping conversations centered on the reason we are all here….to support the beautiful person who brought us together. David…everything he is….and everything he does…provides for us an example of loving and caring that brings all of us a great deal of happiness and peace. Aren’t we all looking for that?

    hmmmm i don’t think i’ll read the comments today. see you all tomorrow.

  168. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey nora! I thought I read somewhere, an article or something about BEGIN. that it would be on Itunes, but I’ve not heard anything officially yet. Hopefully, we’ll hear a little more info in that regard this coming week.

  169. bds says:

    Everyday Lurker – Amen

  170. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey blue, dont go, stay & chat about BEGIN. Whats your favorite snippet, what do you think of Broken? :grin:

  171. Beth, i hope your right and that it is on itunes. that would be great. Get ready pretty soon for another trending i hope before BEGIN. is released.

  172. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth and Nora, the OS says that it will be available for digital download in iTunes.

  173. . says:

    Love the Don’t Give Up sample, & I’m not even familiar with that song, but love the way his voice wails and has soooo much soul. I know most of you are loving on the Broken sample, it sounds promising but really feel like I need to hear the whole song to know if it’s going to be my absolute favorite. Being familiar with most of the songs it’s a little easier to tell how the rest of the song might sound but with Broken still more of a mystery for me. I like what we’ve heard so far though.

  174. . says:

    Cq – that’s great news, someone gave me an iTunes card recently, now I think I have a pretty good idea how to use it ;)

  175. JayRay says:

    Kimk, Candy…Thanks for bringing the DLTSGDOM vid over. Funny thing is…after listening to the snipits several times last night, I felt compelled to que up the vid of that performance. Idk why, it just seemed a logical fit with the snipits from BEGIN..

  176. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Linda! Yeah, even if they can have BEGIN. on the Itunes front page 1 day or even part of the day, it may sell enough that it will be in the top ten & on the front page all on its own :grin: We should work on a trending topic for August 7th, one in the morning & one for evening, if possible. Plus, we should tweet all of the celeb sites, music sites. I tried last week, when I first got twitter, but I didnt see my tweets in there tweets, unless I was looking in the wrong place :roll: :grin:

  177. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    I’m looking forward to hearing ALL of Broken and I hope that maybe once the album is out Kari will share what David’s inspiration was for the song.

  178. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey cq, Thanks for the info, thats fantastic. Hey, maybe thats where I read it,lol. The older I get, it seems, the less I know :roll:

    .says, Love Dont Give Up & Broken. Cant wait to hear each song in its entirety.

    Candy, lol, heads to fridge. I just went to Macdonalds a little bit ago & I got a hot fudge sundae. I felt it my duty, to honor this day, by having a sundae :grin:

  179. Beth if its national ice cream day does that mean i have to go out and buy an icream. Say yes pretty please. Now i have a good excuse to eat icecream.

  180. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda, lol, Yes :grin: I went against my no ice cream rule, I was craving chocolate, so I got a hot fudge sundae & they have these really good chocolate chip cookies, so, well, ummm, I got those too :grin: Now I have to dance to Zero Gravity for 1/2 an hour to work them off :lol:

  181. nora says:

    Beth and cq thanks for the info about Itunes, hope they announce it officially soon.

    Everyday Lurker, couldn’t agree with you more Love is all that counts to love one another no matter what race color or religion, and not to judge others, just take care of ourselves and live a good life. Enough about that let’s just keep the focus on David and his music and being here as a fanbase when he returns in 2014!!!!!!!

  182. cq know what you mean about listening to the whole song. Like they say, Broken is special to me. I really like what he says and how he says it. But i can’t pick a favorite yet.

  183. CindyUT says:

    Hi everyone. I know I’ll probably get tomotoes thrown at me for saying this. But, I will. Why is it that some people can talk about their perspective of Christianity, but when people like ksf and Josie who obviously has done their research presents another view, they get bullied? Maybe another board should be created so these kinds of discussions can take place there. Ok….going back into lurk mode now.

  184. going to the corner store to buy me an icecream. Be back in 2 shakes of a lambs tail.

  185. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Cindy, They didnt get bullied. No one was talking about it until some not so nice things about LDS were said, so people felt the need to defend, no, clarify. As I think we’re all coming to an agreement is, this isnt the place to discuss religion or politics, this is a place to talk about all of the great music by one sweetheart of a man, David Archuleta :grin: Woops, went against my no more diving into the fray. OK, back to David & National Ice Cream Day.

    What is everyones favorite flavor of ice cream????

  186. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    My favorite ice cream flavor is an Edy’s ice cream, one I havent seen in 2 years & I think I will call them this week to ask them to have it this year,lol. Its called Gingerbreadman. Its out of this world, best ever.

  187. nora says:

    Candy, why does anybody have to talk about beliefs on a fansite?? That is not what this is all about who cares what your beliefs or mine are?? Nobody can prove who is right and who is wrong there are no right or wrongs, that is why they are called beliefs, I don’t believe anybody bullied anybody. This is not the place for religious beliefs they have nothing to do with supporting David’s Music. Lets just move on and agree to discuss David and his music. JMO.

  188. Candy says:

    Like I said…have at it…Im going to go float in the pool.

  189. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    TGRArchie – if you’re lurking, I’m following you on Pinterest. Love your pins, especially the Style ones :)

    Speaking of ice cream, think I’ll have some. My mother-in-law recently made some in one of those old-fashioned ice cream makers and gave it to us, lol.

    Btw, I agree that arguments lead to nothing. For the record I have never brought up religion but when it’s presented I don’t shy away from it. I have not personally attacked anyone, although I can’t say the same for myself, which is fine. I could care less about being “called out” and I don’t regret anything I’ve said, nor do I apologize for it. Stating my views does not mean I’m intolerant; if I was I certainly wouldn’t still be here. Thanks again, josie, for saying what many wanted to say, but couldn’t. :)

    Goodnight all. Enjoy your night, your weekend, etc… :)

  190. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Nora, I think you meant Cindy, if I’m not misunderstanding you.

  191. Candy says:

    Nora-btw-it wasnt me that said anything about bullying!! *Splash*

  192. . says:

    Gosh, how about that David Archuleta guy, one pretty amazing artist :)

    Beth :)

    Off to a wedding reception, bye now :)

  193. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Josie, thank you for your sincere and beautiful post. I know there have been many times you have bitten your tongue and most of the time, I suspected this was what you wanted to say. It’s good you finally got it out. :-) And I believe you said it with lots of love and as much respect as you could muster, while still sharing something that was deeply important and personal to you. I appreciate that.
    I understand that David is sharing a message that you disagree with and hurts your heart, that is why I have always been impressed with how many fans can look past the differences in religion and still support and love him.
    As for all the things you shared about what you believe – thank you. It is not offensive to me in the least that that is what you believe. In fact, none of it was a surprise to me – I know and understand ‘mainstream’ doctrine. :-) I used to spend time on conservative Christian websites just as much as I now spend time here at FOD, so I have seen the inner-workings of people like yourself and Ksf many times and I have learnt many wonderful things from my interactions with them. They also drove me to investigate Christianity on a deeper levep, to examine the bible more closely on specific topics, to ask myself some hard questions about what I believe and why.
    I have long suspected that Ksf and now yourself, have said the things you have said because you care. Because you believe that we are going to hell and you want to stop that from happening. That you want to both warn the Mormon’s here and warn other people who might be curious about the mormon church. As I said to Ksf recently….i really do understand your position even though we stand on opposite sides of the.discussion – and I think I understand it because I DO stand on the opposite side enough to be able to put myself in your shoes.
    So anyway, thank you. :-) Consider your message delivered and hopefully understood in the manner you were hoping for?
    My parting thought – and this is no reflection on your original comment – is to just ask for respect and consideration in the way we speak of each others beliefs. We don’t have to agree but we can choose to not be offensive in our choice of words. That is all I was trying to ask of Ksf the other day.
    (((hugs))) and love. :-)

    Now I must run and hurry up and get ready or I’ll be late for church. :-)
    Take care dear friends. :-)

  194. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    .says, Have a great time at the reception, maybe you’ll hear a David song :grin:

  195. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Hi Cindy! Good to “see” you, lol. Unfortunately being bullied is a part of life, no matter what age it seems. It’s funny though…neither josie nor I said anything that personally attacked anyone but the “clarifying” certainly became uncivil. Thanks for your thoughts. Goodnight! :)

  196. nora says:

    Candy I’m really sorry I did mean Cindy. Really sorry about that, I guess I should get my names right, if i’m going to make a comment.I think maybe I should go get myself some ice cream, I have Edy’s slow churned double chocolate swirl with peanut butter, it is so good, maybe that will cool me off. thank goodness for ice cream and David they are both addictive. I think that is something we can all agree on. Sorry again Candy.

  197. jeani/ut says:

    I was here to see all of Kalei wonderful post. I got halfway through the comments and couldn’t stand it anymore. I’m leaving for today. Not that anyone cares.

  198. Hi everyone, hope you’re having a great Saturday! I am loving all of the snippets and can’t choose any particular one. He has mastered each song and I am very sure this CD is going to do very well! I have worn out “You are my song” on my Forevermore CD. Golly, guess I’ll have to get another one! Also… please don’t discuss religion here, it’s like a vicious circle and doesn’t accomplish a thing. David would certainly feel bad if he knew this was happening……

  199. kimk says:

    jeani I care.

  200. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Ooh, Beth, you’re making me want to get ice cream. Maybe I’ll mix fruit in it so I won’t feel guilty. LOLOL

  201. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ksf, You werent bullied, people were just trying to defend themselves from some things that you said. I’m not LDS, but was pretty surprised by some of the things said against them. To be honest, you have said some things that came across as disrespectful to LDS, however beautifully said. All of the LDS posters on this site havent pushed any views of their’s onto anyone & have only responded to what they felt was incorrect info or words that were disrespectful. Plus, they are accepting & respectful of other views. I love your Javid stories & alot of your comments, so I dont want this issue to come between all of us, and while I’m going against what I just said, not jumping into the fray, I had to clarify this point. Each person can state their truth without telling someone else their truth is wrong.

    Please, lets all drop this issue, Please!!! (Sorry, I realize my comment continued this issue for a minute, but I will drop it now)

  202. kimk says:

    JayRay haven’t watched it in a while.. just came to mind. it does seem perfect BEGIN and DLTSGDOM together.

  203. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Janel, Hmmm, fruit in ice cream, I think the goodness of the fruit cancels out the not so good nutition of the ice cream, great idea :grin:

    Hey Jeani! I care too. I will not be visiting this subject anymore. Whats your favorite snippet on BEGIN. ????

  204. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    kimk, whats your favorite ice cream flavor? Do you have a favorite all-time favorite David performance?

  205. kimk says:

    if I could have anything right now
    I think I might ask for a livestream of tomorrow’s concert in Chile.
    I know it is not possible so going to hope that at least an audio pops up for me/us to listen
    to if we wish.
    miss him a ton!!

  206. kimk says:

    Candy ha see my avi.. already there.

  207. Alynne says:

    Hi,
    Just stopped in to see what everyone was discussing regarding David and his music. Wow! Did I find an interesting discussion going on. I don’t know how it came about but I just wanted to say, Josie, your earlier two posts this afternoon, I couldn’t agree with more! I agree with ksf as well. It’s actually a relief to hear that other David fans also believe as I do and are bold enough to speak up. The fact is, David is on a religious mission, so his religion is going to come up as a topic. I don’t see why that is so surprising or even uncalled for. Maybe his religion shouldn’t be discussed here, but MAYBE it should be discussed somewhere. Since many of you have spoken about religion please allow me to also.

    Here’s the truth and I’ve studied it for years. I’ve studied LDS doctrine for 4 years and Biblical doctrine most of my life. They differ. I’m Christian. Being a Biblical Christian means I agree with everything the Bible says about God and Jesus. As Christians, we are actually supposed to stand up for the truth that is in the Bible. The Mormon doctrines teach a different god, a different Jesus, and a different gospel than that in the Bible. Maybe some Mormons don’t realize this. I have to tell you that while some people are offended when we say their religion is not Christian, there are Christians who are offended when some call themselves Christian, yet believe in a different Jesus, a different gospel. Why? Because it is deceptive. I know you’re not intentionally being deceptive, it could be that you’re deceived. And so, we will speak the truth, the motive being love.

    Someone brought up the Nicene Creed – that was a group of Christian scholars who got together and in the onslaught of many false doctrines that were taking place during that time and beginning to permeate the body of Christ (the church), decided to declare, based on sound interpretation of the Bible, what they believed.

    Forget the Nicene Creed though, just read and study the Bible for yourself. My beliefs come from the Bible. The Bible’s texts have not changed from the original ancient texts, the Dead Dead Scrolls are an example. I could go on and on about other evidences: historical, archeological, linguistic, geographical, as well as hundreds of prophecies that have been fulfilled. If any person no matter what religion, calls themselves Christian based on the true gospel of the Bible, than I have no right to judge. I can, however, judge the doctrines of their religion, whether those doctrines are Christian according to the Bible. As Christians we should do this! Here are some scripture references and a good explanation of why we should: http://www.bibleanswer.com/testdoct.htm

    I think those who believe like I do are trying to help some of you understand that your doctrines differ from the Bible. That is all. It’s true that they do and we should speak the truth. Why would we even bring it up? Because you have brought it up.

    I fully expect this comment to be deleted and/or the whole thread to end now.

  208. kimk says:

    Beth neopolitan I suppose.. I like all colors, flavors, and lol lots of nuts!

  209. Janel aka Nellie says:

    To anyone, no matter your religion I am sure you all feel passionate about what you believe in, as I do. I’m sure you hold your beliefs dear to your heart as do I. I’m sure your passion is so strong that if you feel that if you believe someone else’s teachings are wrong, you have to voice it, as anyone in the religion you’re talking out against has a strong passion to defend it.
    And maybe you are passionate to teach what you believe to be true. Know that you’re not alone, no matter the religion. David wants to teach about his religion and give his time to God because he believes it to be true.
    Doctrines of religion could be debated until we’re blue in the face, but be careful to tell people of other religions what they believe in if you’re not a member of that religion yourself. Anyone can find negative things about different religions on the internet, it’s everywhere. But, the best way to find out about what other religions believe is to talk to the source, the members themselves…also in the case of the LDS church, http://www.lds.org.
    The 11th article of faith we follow says “We claim the priviledge of worshipping almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience. We allow all men (and women) the same priviledge; let them worship how, where or what they may.”

    This shows tolerance of others and we don’t go around telling others they are going somewhere other than heaven if they don’t believe in it. Religion has been a heated topic of debate for centuries and it won’t change any time soon. But as for me, I refuse to tell other people what they believe is wrong on this group because all it does is bring the spirit of contention.
    I love the happier posts here better. The ones that talk about how much we love this young man, his soul, his voice, his charity to others, and in at least one way or all of the above, this young man has touched all our lives, made us better people, stronger in our own faiths no matter what they are. And our willingness to do what we can to keep promoting him, keep him current while he’s gone. If anyone wants to ask me questions about what we believe in off this forum just tweet me or message me on FB.

  210. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    kimk, I miss him too & I’m with you on the livestream of that concert tomorrow,lol, but any video or audio(done with their ok,lol) sounds great to me. You know, I’m going with an idea I had way back in regards to cell casts. Why dont we just have David put a phone in his shirt pocket for cellcasts, imagine the great sound :lol:

  211. dailylurker says:

    Wow the comments again! lols Have I told you lately that I love you Beth! You are always so respectful and level headed and you always seem fair to everyone. Plus your funny as heck. I’m probably one of the only Atheist here and I don’t agree with any of the religions discussed here but that doesn’t mean I don’t respect all of you guys. You can believe whatever the heck you want to believe. It’s all good, life is too short, just enjoy it. David wanted his mission/religion separate from us and that is what I got from his last vlog. He is on his own journey and I would think we are supporting David the artist and not David the Mormon. Ok that’s all I have to say, don’t want tomatoes thrown at me either. lols

    Back to spazzing over BEGIN. ! So why did David name his album BEGIN. ? What is “Broken” about? My favorite tracks right now from the very short snippets are “Broken”, “SOWK”, “Pride” and “TC”. I am sure it will change when I hear the full versions of the songs.

    Favorite ice cream flavors are mint chocolate chip, coffee, cookies and cream, creme brulee and rum raisin. :) Favorite toppings are peanuts and coconut.

    kimk, neapolitan is really good. 3 ice creams in one, cant go wrong :wink:

    Hey, wheres Linda with her ice cream, wonder what flavor she got :grin:

  214. Kimk and Beth, i agree with you. It would be nice to have an audio at least, but if not maybe they will have some nice comments to share with us about the concert.

  215. CindyUT says:

    Well said, Alynne.

  216. Beth i got vanilla, but i had a root beer float instead. I am feeling so guilty right now, but very patriotic because i honored a national ice cream day. LOL!

  217. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Alynne – thanks for your thoughts. Very well said and very much appreciated. You make a good point — we are really talking about two very different doctrines and many people don’t realize it. Thanks for your thoughtful insight. :)

  218. kimk says:

    Linda hoping someone will take pity on us.. would imagine he will be singing in Spanish!

  219. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    dailylurker, arent you sweet, thank you :grin: I appreciate your being respectful. However, I have to disagree with you on 2 very important points……..Rum Raisin & Coffee ice creams, yukkk :lol:

  220. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda, Oh my heck, a Root Beer Float, dang it, now I want one of those,lol, that sounds great. Yeah, lets hope for some kind of audio.

    kimk, oh, gosh, I forgot he’ll be singing in Spanish :shock: Audio, Please, Please, Please !!!

  221. dailylurker says:

    Yes some audio or video from ArchuNinjas would be highly appreciated right now. It probably wont’ happen. I will be happy with anything, a few tweets, anything!!!!! :)

    LOLs Beth! Coffee and Rum Raisin RULES!!!!!

  222. If we get an audio and its in spanish, we will translate for you guys.

  223. rarchiefan says:

    I stand up for David as this is his fansite for all of us to share about caring for him. But I would be remiss to not stand up for my faith. I love what I believe in and I believe in the Bible as the holy word of God but I also believe in the Book of Mormon as the holy word of God. Having read both I see no difference in our Father above nor in our Lord and Savior in either of these great teachings and training books on how to live our lives. I must say I see David truly living what he believes, so he is doing something right by believing what he does and supporting his faith as his actions speak loudly.
    Thank you Janel I liked your words.

  224. dailylurker says:

    So is everyone rushing out to get the “Crush” perfume at American Eagle? lols I knew that would be a great name. Can’t wait for David to be back and come out with is own cologne and line of shoes, hats, shirts, water and hair products. :)

    It’s so nice of Cookie to mention David in his interviews. He is such a sweet guy.

  225. Alynne says:

    I love this young man and I have accepted that he is of a different faith than I am. I am not discussing the negative things about his religion only that it differs from Biblical Christianity. When you study both, you will realize that. The discussion was about people claiming to be Christian and yet their very important doctrines of who God is and who Jesus is are different than those in the Bible. I’ve been to your sites. Where the differences are found though are in your scriptures: The Doctrine of Covenants, The Pearl of Great Price, and even in The Book of Mormon.

    I’ve said enough. I will leave the thread now, so as not to offend and so everyone can continue their cheerful talk, which I have much appreciated in the past.

  226. Only 3 1/2 weeks before BEGIN. is released. I am so excited to listen to the entire songs. Maybe David will be sending us a tweet from him right before it releases or right on the release day. That would totally make my day. We haven’t heard from him in a while except for the snippets.

  227. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    dialylurker, ummm, well, lol. I guess when I saw Coffee, it reminded me of the 10-12 times I got a coffee instead of a hot chocolate at McDonalds,lol. I took a sip of the coffee & whoaaaa, yuk. I cant stand coffee,lol. A tip: The Frozen Hot Chocolate at Dairy Queen, the Double Fudge one, is so good. They have it here in MN, not sure if they have it elsewhere. It was kind of a secret at DQ until they advertised it over a month ago. Its not on the drive thru order board where I go, but I still can get it. I shouldnt, but, once in a while, I do :lol:

  228. Really says:

    Alynne- LDS people DO believe in the Bible. We just also believe that the Book of Mormon is ANOTHER testament of Christ.

    I don’t care what any of you believe, and I won’t try to change your religion or tell you that yours is wrong. You believe your religion is the right one, I believe mine is the right one. I believe in the gospel. I believe that our church leaders are called of God and that they are here to guide and direct us. Being LDS has taught me not to do wrong. I’ve never smoked, drank, never had coffee, never watched an ‘R’ rated movie, won’t have sex until I’m married. I don’t know that if I wasn’t LDS that I would have these morals in my life and to fully understand how important it is to have morals. I’m not saying non LDS people can’t have morals. That’s not what I’m saying at all. I just know for me personally, my faith has helped keep those morals strong. I am happy and have a wonderful family. A good, strong, sweet family. Giving. Great friends. I’m living a life full of happiness and love. So you know what? If I do find out when I get to the other side that being LDS was the wrong religion to choose, I wouldn’t regret a single day of my life, because I lived it as a good person and ultimately, God will tell me where I shall spend eternity, and nobody else.

  229. bychance says:

    Back for a second. Beth….thanks….packing my bag for the Broken Wing. Did you say you’d be serving ice-cream? Rocky Road???

    Josie, David Enchilada! lol!!!!

    What a day.

  230. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda, a tweet would be great. Maybe even a vlog, blog previously recorded or written or recorded or written now, anything would be appreciated, but whatever he can or cant do is fine, whatever works :grin:

  231. dailylurker says:

    Why am I hungry now? Chicken enchilada sounds yummy right now. I guess I have to settle for my fried chicken and potato salad that I got from Publix earlier. :) Have a good night everyone.

  232. Ali says:

    oy vey when did this become a bible study??

    how about this, i don’t really care if anyone here is lds, baptist, catholic, muslim, or atheist. its your choice and none of my business. i come here to hear and talk about david.

    speaking of, did you guys see this vid of cook mentioning david during his show last night? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGSSIUGgZeo

    “blossomed into quite the actor” hahaha

  233. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Bychance, Hey, no problem. You bring up a great idea, the Archuhospital – Broken Wing feel they’ve been neglectful in not providing an ice cream bar for all of the “guests”, so we will be correcting that immediately :grin: Rocky Road? Check!

  234. josie says:

    Shanny- Lolol. Have I ever told you that I think you’re an amazing person? You seem to have qualities that I’m kind of jealous of (like sounding diplomatic when I don’t.lol), & I always learn from your posts. So don’t stop, ‘K? :) So..”Message Understood?” Well, the first 3 paragraphs were pretty on-target. lol. And thank you for recognizing that I really, really do care. I think I decided now that I want a heart of stone instead. lol.

  235. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    dailylurker, Have a great night, but dont ever mention fried chicken on FOD again, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd are rather sensitive about it :lol:

    Hey Ali! Will check out the vid, thanks!

  236. bychance says:

    What I mean is……I’ve had a long day and going to bed early. Listening to snippets while I brush my teeth. (see?….only here could I say that and no one thinks I’m silly or crazy. that’s why it’s so fun to share the love for D.)

  237. cq#DA2014 says:

    Dailylurker, like this statement: “supporting David the artist and not David the Mormon”

  238. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Bychance, way to multi-task :grin:

  239. Candy says:

    So…hows the weather where you are??? Going to get a lot hotter where I’m going, ha no not that place…I leave Friday for two weeks in San Antonio! Its been 100+ degrees on a daily basis.

  240. bychance says:

    Shanny….I have to agree with Josie…..an amazing person. So impressed by your lovely comment. And Josie….no hearts of stone here. David will just melt it anyway.

    Beth -looking forward to the Rocky Road!! Now really am going to bed…..goodnight all.

  241. Ali says:

    just saw this reblogged on tumblr and had forgot how AMAAAAAZING it was

    SBL from KL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMRpwZQmYCM
    from the comments, everyone seems to love 2:38ish in the vid. ha!

  242. Amanda Jane says:

    Evening all. Im so over the debates raging here today but I have to say its nice to see so many new “faces” amongst! Please come out of lurkerdom more often!

    I agree with “.” (really need a name dear lol) about Broken. Ill have to hear the whole song before I can really decide what I think. Love them all though :) I think Im most excited for SOWK and Pride. Today at least.

    How about the rest o the lurkers? Whats your fave snippet/what song are you most excited for?

  243. cq#DA2014 says:

    Oh Ali, love that video….He belongs on stage….miss the beautiful man!

  244. angelbymyside says:

    How did we even get to this point where people feel the need to defend their religious beliefs on a fan site? I love coming here and reading the comments on a daily basis but not so much today :( . There is so much excitement in the air surrounding BEGIN., can’t we bet back to what the purpose of this fan site is for?

    peace :)

  245. Ali says:

    cq – hi! :) hi to all btw!! :) :)

    candy – have a great time in san antone! i’ve always wanted to visit there.

  246. Amanda Jane says:

    The weather stinks Candy lol. Too hot this summer, too stormy. I mean Im all for a nice lil storm but severe stuff is highly overrated. And thats all everyone seems to get anymore.

    Has San Antonio been getting flooding? I saw were Houston’s been getting pounded with rain.

  247. kimk says:

    cq he sure does belong on stage!!!!

  248. Ali says:

    cq – belongs on stage for sure! it always amazes me how david kicks butt on stage when he’s so shy off of it. it intrigues me because i’m a naturally shy person and i can’t ever imagine getting up in front of all those people like he does. thank goodness he has that magic though!!

    how about a favorite performance vid posting night??

    i’m feeling a little old school zg. how about y’all? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv5HdhQxnb8

  249. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I think Ali has summed up the day of comments nicely. Oy Vey!!!!

    On a different note….24 more days and counting until Begin.

  250. It’s been nice. I gained weight on Fod today but it’s all good.
    Beth Goodnight. Enjoyed my ice cream.
    Have a restful night everyone. A lot of David dreams.
    Lets keep our fingers crossed for a snippet of tomorrows concert. If not, it’s OK.
    Good Night everyone.

  251. Candy says:

    Hi Amanda, SA has had problems with flooding but nothing like Houston. I hope it all drys up before Friday! My daughter lives in Austin, said they have had rain every day for over a week, very unusual for Texas!

  252. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    My computer just shut off twice, had trouble getting it back on.

    Candy, pretty hot here in MN too. Hope you & everyone else are finding ways to keep cool. How exciting, a trip to San Antonio. I checked, it looks pretty warm there too :roll:

    Hey abms! I agree. Whats your favorite snippet so far?

  253. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Begin Living
    Listening to the songs David will cover on Begin. I think about my life and how I’ve had to change the way I think about myself. I still don’t have the level of self-esteem I’d like to have, but I am working on it. Went through a lot of stuff in my life, so bringing myself up to a state of feeling OK about me is a slow process. I’m grateful to friends who lift me up and give me encouragement and confidence to begin my life again.
    The words in David’s covers and his new song (the words we know) are so uplifting to the down trodden, the person who is bullied, the weak and those who feel bad about themselves and lack in self-confidence.
    You are beautiful just the way you are, so show your true colors. When you’re weary or feeling small, when you’ve exposed your broken heart, be still because the Lord is on your side. They could not take your pride, in the name of love. Don’t give up because you have friends, don’t give up, you’re not beaten yet. I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin. You’re in the arms of an angel, may you find some comfort here. Begin living.

  254. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Bychance!

    Goodnight Linda, glad you enjoyed your ice cream, take care!

  255. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ I love Broken like so many others do. And I cannot wait to hear Pride. That might be my second favorite snippet. :)

  256. nora says:

    Ali I did see the video of Cook mentioning Archie, it was nice to see him pose with David’s picture, he has been a great friend to David, I also remember at one of his concerts he held up a shirt from one of David’s concert, I think they have respect for each other Respect is very important in a lot of things , maybe somebody’s sensitivity to fried chicken, not mentioning any names, but you know who you are.

  257. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Love your comment Janel :grin:

  258. angelbymyside says:

    Janel ~ I believe David chose these songs very carefully and purposefully! I hope people take the time to listen to the messages in the songs.

  259. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    abms, Yeah, Adore Broken & I too, cant wait to hear the full version of it, and Pride, it should be great :grin:

  260. Ali says:

    I can’t pick a favorite snippet at all. bahhhhh. my indecision is annoying lol. i just have love for all of them for different reasons.

    Speaking of favorites, I was going through some of the mall promo vids from Manila last night and came across this one again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCKspF0W95w David was so cute there! And I really liked the hostess lady too. But my absolute favorite part starts around 2:50ish. “ha?” “ano??” and the body parts! and david’s so proud like a 5 year old in school!! bwahahahhahah i love his simple joy for things. it makes me so happy.

  261. tami_lyn says:

    omg did u guys see what melinda just posted??!! lol

  262. angelbymyside says:

    tami_lyn ~ afraid to ask…what did she post?

  263. tami_lyn says:

    can’t even repeat it! kind of disgusting

  264. LaLiliana says:

    If all “christians” spent more time on loving each other and less on differences in doctrine, I personally would be more inclined to think that you more Christ-like.

  265. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Dont care for her, M, dont follow her. I did just check, thought it was David related, wasnt expecting what I did see, but then again, its M :roll:

  266. tami_lyn says:

    makes u wonder what kind of convos she had with david!

  267. angelbymyside says:

    Goodnight!

    :D

  268. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Tomorrow, we spazz about Davids new
    album & food :grin:

  269. janey says:

    Hola mis amigas. I saw a few comments above where people were wondering about “official” word about BEGIN. being available for download on iTunes. The answer is “yes”!

    Info was posted in the “snippet #10″ post on the OS:BEGIN. is set for release on August 7 and will be available at all major music stores and also for digital download on iTunes.

  274. Candy says:

    kimk-I was going to say the same thing…hes heard it all before…I’m sure his bandmates made his ears blush a few times! Heck he toured with one of the most outrageous groups out there. “McFly”

  275. nora says:

    tami-lyn, What did Melinda say, don’t leave us hanging. I really don’t like her but just curious.

  276. kimk says:

    nora lol it ain’t D approved… as in Dis site!

  277. tami_lyn says:

    nora- wish i could tell u but i can’t repeat it! lol sorry. kim- yeah i follow mike k. know what u mean! he’s kind of a bad boy lol.

  278. tami_lyn says:

    candy- yeah i still find it kind of shocking that he toured with them! wonder who’s idea that was??

  279. rarchiefan says:

    Hey Janel great to hear we can download BEGIN from iTunes!!!! :) Thank you. Hello Candy ;)

  280. nora says:

    ok if it wasn’t about something she said about David then I really don’t care, she wasn’t a very nice person, she lied about David and Jive, that I really remember

  281. Candy says:

    Hi rarchiefan -good to see you here, Im doing great…how have you been?

  282. rarchiefan says:

    Very good thank you Candy. Just some dental issues. ugh. Not fun at all. :( But BEGIN and especially snippets of the songs…..Love BROKEN!!!!! Make things all better.

  283. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Candy – room in the pool for me………?

  284. rarchiefan says:

    I remember when David tweeted about Bunnies lol he said he had to change what was being discussed on the bus. Smart guy!

  285. Candy says:

    me too rarchiefan -LOVE LOVE LOVE Broken!! cant wait for to hear the whole song. Sorry to hear about your dental woes. Hope you’re doing better now.

  286. Candy says:

    ATX- sure come on in!! I love swimming at night…so peaceful floating under the moonlight.

  287. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Candy – let me guess, you have the headphones on with the BEGIN snippets playing while floating and looking at the stars.

  288. rarchiefan says:

    Hi Candy lost a tooth now have to make a decision on another one. Guess that is just part of life. Have been blessed to not have lots of problems just happens in life right? BEGIN is coming and I am excited for that though!!! :) ) Hope you are doing well!

  289. Candy says:

    LOL-no headphones in the pool! Although that sounds like a heavenly idea!

  290. ATX #DA2014 says:

    *goes to Candy’s virtural pool with my headphones on, eating my ice cream*

    Good night all

    PS So sorry I missed GG…… If you are still lurking GG, please come back tomorrow. I miss your words of wisdom.

  292. kimk says:

    rarchiefan lol was just thinking of that.. oh to be a fly on the wall.

  293. Candy says:

    rarchiefan-The Lord works in mysterious ways…when every I’m feeling sorry for myself about some ache or pain…he sends me a reminder that I’m really not doing that bad.

  294. Findthecure says:

    Wow janel. That was beautiful how you put that together (10:17)

  295. rarchiefan says:

    kimk yes for sure to see the eye rolls or songs that get hummed and sung. lol

    Candy you got that right!!! I have a friend who has been hospitalized for 4 months. She is about to lose her home, her pets, her belongings, her life as she knew it and go into a nursing home. She is young and yet her health has failed her. I am sad and broken hearted for her. :*( I too treasure what I have and count my blessings!!!

  296. Candy says:

    rarchiefan-So sorry to hear about your friend. How heartbreaking for her so young. I’ll add her to my prayers.

  297. Candy says:

    well its past east coast bewitching hour, I’m off to dreamland. Good Night All

  298. rarchiefan says:

    Thank you Candy she would appreciate that. Good Night to you too. :)

  299. meganloves2lol says:

    Really- is is true though that you believe the book of mormons is holier then the bible? and when you sayd you haven’t done anything like bad like drink coffee…drinking coffee and tea is not a bad thing to do.

  300. meganloves2lol says:

    josie- i love the way you explianed it all. i’m glad you are standing up gor christians who are not mormon. there have been a few times on here where i feel like certaisn lds commenterts kind of in way say lds are better then other christians. i always want to say something, but dunno how to say with respect. so thank you, you say it with plenty of respect. and thanks shanny for being so understanding to the those of who don’t understand mormonism. your always so classy :)

  301. dailylurker says:

    Couldn’t sleep so I came back to see if any vids/audio/tweets have been posted about the show in Chile. Oh well, it looks like the topic hasn’t changed much. Lols at the chicken comment above from Beth. Well tomorrow is a new day. So has Nandito Ako aired in the US yet? I want dvd badly!

  302. Janel aka Nellie says:

    rarchiefan that was Janey who posted about downloading songs from Begin, not me….so thank you Janey!

  303. Janel aka Nellie says:

    abms, and you can add “prayerfully” to that too, my guess! (David choosing songs)

    someone said something about being allergic to chicken. It reminded me of a gross horror story I lived through while working at KFC….years ago. But, I digress, I’ll leave gross stories off of FOD comments. Especially since we were talking about glorious ice cream earlier!

    Findthecure….thank you. I sent it to both FOD and Fanscene. Cathy added it to today’s fanscene post. Just something I wrote last night I was thinking about. It’s pretty clear to me what the theme in these songs is about especially about how David has talked against bullying. His interview about bullying with Access Hollywood is kind of telling. When you listen to what David says, and then look at the lyrics from the songs he’ll cover in Begin, it seems like it’s what he’s drawing on, inspiring people, lifting them up, showing people they are beautiful the way they are. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgzvF-fdIbE

  304. just a fan says:

    http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/2012/03/hello-elder-archuleta-4/

    Love that they have all the pics here together. David looks great in all the pics. I haven’t seen some of them before. Yes they are some “missionary” pics so don’t look if you don’t want to. It makes me so happy seeing his smiley face.

  305. TGRArchie says:

    Hi ksf! Thanks for following me at Pinterest and I’ve also started to follow you and your boards …. have been liking and re-pinning some of your stuff too! I really lurk here daily only sometimes I’m still a little shy to join in the conversation. (“,)

  306. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Gosh, thank you for the very kind words directed to me. I don’t really feel deserving but I am touched by them. I think despite our differences and the occasional upsets, you FODfolk are pretty special people. :-)

    Love everyone’s humour and I look forward to trying these incredible ice-cream flavours one day in the future! We definitely don’t have anywhere the range you do in the US, although New Zealand ice-cream is good and creamy. :-) (shame I live in australia! lol)

  307. Kalei says:

    Nice to see that we’ve returned to squeeing about David’s music and discussing favorite ice cream flavors! David would love that we ended the night with a discussion about food!

    Again, FOD appreciates everyone keeping comments a happy and fun place to come and share David news. When polarizing or controversial topics are posted, respect and kindness should rule the day. It is always acceptable to just agree to disagree and leave it at that.

    Tomorrow is Josh Bradley’s birthday!

  308. frio says:

    LCT & TGRArchie…following you guys on Pinterest! Got really curious when you guys brought it up. Kinda liking the layout of everything :) Now

  309. frio says:

    whoops, to continue..
    Have to go back to the previous threads to looks for Archies on Pinterest :D
    Seems easy and fun to use!

  310. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    One last thing…i generally try not to say thanks to specific comments when there has been controversy because I feel like it adds to the controversy by being polarizing but I would feel a little remiss if I didn’t say a general ‘Thank you’. That would include the comments that were specifically about me and my concerns a couple of days ago. ((hugs))

    Hi ya Kalei and Frio. :-)

  311. frio says:

    Hi Shanny :)

    Thank you from me, too. :)

    Dailylurker~ I haven’t seen anyone say that Nandito Ako is in the U.S. yet, but I definitely want it, too. Especially the scenes with Uncle Steve, lol. “I’m not a little kid anymore! I’m not afraid of you!”

  315. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    Good morning kimk!

    TGRArchie – hi. Don’t be shy, lol. M

  316. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    oops, lol. TGRArchie – I meant to say don’t be shy. Most days are fun…most of the time. I generally take everything with a grain of salt ;)

  317. kimk says:

    hope Nandito Ako airs in the US.. and there is a livestream!
    come to think about it I would love a livestream today!!
    FROM CHILE! :D

  318. Suzanne says:

    Does anyone know the scoop with Highway Records? David’s sound cloud indicates that it’s the label for the release. Google search shows that it’s a label based out of Moscow with techo-type music. That can’t really be it.

  319. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    I thought NA would be on Direct TV? Or is that all still being worked out?

  320. kimk says:

    Suzanne lol I can’t imagine that is it. thought it was a subsidiary of Shadow Mountain records.. a lds label?

  321. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:
