Some stories don’t have a clear BEGIN.ning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. -Gilda Radner -

A Message Of Thanks~ 

On behalf  of all of us mods here at FOD, I’d like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the lovely comments and Happy Anniversary messages sent out to FOD yesterday. You are all greatly appreciated, and our journey together with David Archuleta would not be the same or complete without each and every one of you! As I often say, “We are a lucky bunch!!”  This first four years have been absolutely wonderful, and I’m anticipating the next will be just as (if not even more) incredible!! Sooo, LET’S BEGIN. ! :)  ~ Our celebration was capped off yesterday with this most special message:

* * * * * *

BEGIN. Vlog Part 5

David answers the question about why he added a hymn, “Be Still My Soul” to BEGIN..

 ”…It would be really important to put this song on this album. It’s a song that’s close to my heart and needed to be there” ♥♥♥

BEGIN.

This “begin depiction” is brought to you by Jana! :)

Greetings all,

Not exactly sure why but over the prior year I have reignited a childhood interest in butterflies. I’m sure being a David fan had something to do with it, somehow..

I ran across this picture and it is so appropriate for the BEGIN. theme I thought I’d pass it along to you.  Thanks Jana! Love it!

BSC Kids: Nice words on BEGIN., David, and Kari

***Thank you, Grace, for sending this in!** :)

David Archuleta may not be in direct contact with his fans due to his mission, but he hasn’t been one to go completely quiet. In his latest message through his manager, he tells his fans that he cannot wait for their reaction to his new album, BEGIN. The album comes out on August 7th, after a long wait from his fans. David has remained in contact via pre-filmed videos and scheduled updates that he has sent to his manager who is taking care of his social media for him. Here is the message that he shared with his manager for his fan base.

I am so excited for BEGIN. that is coming out next week! I can´t wait for people to hear the songs in their entirety!

It sounds like he has been waiting for a long time as well! I think we can all agree that we cannot wait to see what is in store for his new album. But it will also be a bittersweet moment since he cannot do a tour for it. However, his fans will stay strong and support him with all the love that is needed for him at this point. I cannot wait to hear it and also to see his fans rejoice over his new music. He has worked so hard to give something to his fans while he is away for the two years and he did it! I am so proud of David, and in awe over his dedication to his fans. I honestly cannot think of any other singer who has been so dedicated to their fans as he is, which is a huge reason for us to support him that much more.

Are you happy to hear that he is excited about BEGIN? I am, he really loves giving to his fans and to know that he is excited for them. It will be a big moment for him and his fans alike. I certainly hope that the radio stations will support his album, despite of the fact that he is away until 2014. That should not take away from the fact that he has a new album and good music to air. Maybe we should start a campaign on requesting his music on the radio, wouldn’t that be a great way to show support?

Idol Chatter On BEGIN. :

David Archuleta’s New Album Comes Out Next Week!

One of Idol’s all-time good guys is off on a two-year mission trip.
But David Archuleta recorded an album of cover songs before departing, and that album — titled BEGIN. — comes out next week, Tuesday to be precise.
You can pre-order it now, and the first single  “Broken”  is already available.
I’ve embedded the audio for that song below, and you can listen to snippets of all the others on David’s website.
You can also watch four videos during which David talks about the inspiration behind the album, his favorite songs and his decision to go on that mission trip with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“What we wanted to do was just kind of more easy-going, easy-listening kind of songs,” David says in one of the videos. “A more relaxed, more peaceful kind of feel … We wanted it to be more in sync with where I was going in the next chapter in my life.”
As for his favorite songs, David says he especially enjoyed covering Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” and Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel.”
Gotta say, from the snippet I’ve heard, David’s version of the latter song sounds special.
Like I said earlier, pre-orders are being taken for the album at a variety of sites. Pre-order on iTunes, and you’ll get an instant download of “Broken.” CLICK HERE to Comment.

David In Cosmo:

“10 Things About David Archuleta”

Thanks to Siti (@Miissitii91 ) for tweeting this our way.  It’s always so nice to open a magazine and find David! :)

* * * * * *

 Ology Contest Extended

*disclaimer* I never like to see contest dates/rules changed midstream. It’s one of those things that makes me say “hmmm”..Having said that~

*Thanks Martha for the heads up on this!*

So it looks like the contest has been extended until Monday. First I’d like to thank all of the fans who have been contributing to the “memories and fun” on David’s Ology page. I have (myself) enjoyed visiting, commenting, loving, and posting some of my own special memories. Whatever the outcome on Monday, I’ll have enjoyed seeing so many great “David” treasures shared by all of you. As for the TT, my only 2cents is that I’d love to see David and BEGIN. celebrated on Tuesday by a WWTT. That is definitely important World Wide Trending Topic material and at a perfect moment in my book. :)

And a huge thanks to Kari for treating us to some new unseen photos of David!!! (posted below) Wow!! These are soo good! ~And if the 1st one truly is from the “yet to be released” Rainbow music video, it looks like we’re in for another GREAT gift left for us by David to enjoy while he’s away! :)

~Rainbow~

~Doing a few IDs in Manila~  (anyone know what an ID is?)

David doing the dougie (maybe we’ll see this vid in 2013?) *hopes*

Many Faces

The above photos seem like a great segue into this fun fan vid made by POCOELSY who shares she made this (and it’s nice promo) while waiting for BEGIN. to be released!


* * * * * *

Have a great Saturday everyone! I’ll be here to update if needed. :)

  4. cq#DA2014 says:

  9. tami lyn says:

    good morning everyone :) carryover from previous thread where janina ask kari if guy in blue is john hunt? maybe that’s frankie!!! lol :)

  10. Angelgal3 says:

    Hi everyone, Haven’t been around much this summer but I’ve managed to check in now and then to read comments. Between work,vacation,family time,and catching up on home projects,life has been super busy! Can’t wait to listen to Begin and hear that glorious voice again!!! Soo exciting!!! Hope everyone is well here and enjoying their summer!! :)

  11. Hello cq, Heidijoy and kimk! HAPPY SATURDAY and COUNTDOWN to BEGIN.! Really EXCITED to finally hear the whole album! Can’t wait to hear Angel, BOTW and Somwhere Only We Know!

  12. frio says:

    lol, I thought frankie was lurker 2, and I thought lurker 2 was a girl :)

  13. fan of BEGIN. says:

    To clarify from the last thread that I just brought that message over from ology.com because that seemed like a big deal recently here. I could care less about the contest and certainly NOT freaking out about it. I did join 2 days ago and posted some things to help but I got tired of it. It will be fine if Jess won, it’s all good, lols. :) Back to lurking, have a great weekend! Can’t wait to get BEGIN. in my hands!

  14. Candy says:

    frio-same thoughts- thought frankie was lurker 2 and female…but who knows could be David for all we know ;)

  15. Hello tami lym and Angelgal3!

    Angelgal3….Glad to hear all is going well ! EXCIING TIMES in Davidland….BEGIN. just a few days away! Glad you still here!

  16. frio says:

    Candy, sure hahaha

  17. cq#DA2014 says:

    Can’t wait until David is unleashed from that AI box and stands alone as a fabulous singer he is and not be always compared to other AI contestants. As far as the whole Ology goes, of course the most resent contestant is going to have strong fans that will do anything to get her on top, because as we know, that has happen to our David time and time again.

  18. Hello frio, fan of BEGIN. and Candy!

    fan of BEGIN. Ology is a contest, but it also is a AMAZING collection of vids, pics and fan art to enjoy..and if you are so inclined comment on! A GREAT celebration of all things David and the LOVE of his fans! Winning the contest would be a bonus!

  19. tami lyn says:

    candy & frio~ yeah who knows? quite the fun mystery! lol :)

  20. tami lyn says:

    good morning VaBeach :)

  21. fan of BEGIN. says:

    VaBeachArchie, hey I got stuck in the ology vortex for 2 days and I sort of enjoyed it.
    Any buzz is good buzz I guess. Well from the last thread people are making it seem like it’s too cool for school to even talk about it. That is why it’s better to lurk since you never know what to post on here since you don’t know how people may judge you. Sorry about my soapbox. lols I will continue to support David of course, love his talent.

    Hey I watched “My Neighbor Totoro” again the other day online. It was great! It just reminds me of David. Waiting for your car to get an oil change is a drag, lols.

  22. angelbymyside says:

    Great Saturday post Joanie! Thanks! :D

    Who knows or cares about what’s behind Ology….it’s just a FUN way to promote David. At least it’s not a poll from a radio station that never plays his music. If you’re on Ology, enjoy posting and commenting! If it’s not your thing, no big deal! :)

  23. fan of BEGIN. says:

    I meant NOT too cool for school, lols…. OK I really need to go….

  24. kimk says:

    wouldn’t be surprised if Frankie was Lurker 2..
    would guess a girl.. and dang hope it is not David.
    reason is what they posted don’t mind if he comes here.

  25. angelbymyside says:

    Has anyone been notified by Deseret Books that their CD has shipped? My status still says awaiting shipping!! Wonder when they are going to be shipped? Was hoping to have BEGIN. on Tuesday…guess that won’t happen! :(

  26. sarahhazel says:

    abms–it’s fun to comment on Ology….on those pics and vids…some of them I haven’t seen LOL….I just do the best I can without really stressing about winning.

  27. kimk says:

    angel not me either.. maybe the supply is not there yet? hope it is in the stores on Tuesday!!!!

  28. tami lyn says:

    kim~ yeah lurker2 did kind of disappear and then frankie showed up lol. but if they intentionally chose frankie as a posting name, it’s perfect cuz could be either guy or girl’s name.

  29. Anita says:

    ABMS-I checked my order with Deseret Books, and mine also says still awaiting shipping. So, it looks like they’re waiting until the Aug. 7th to ship BEGIN. to us. Sigh….

  30. Grannycrush says:

    I used to work in a bookstore, and we were very careful not to sell a book or CD before the sell date. We would get them in the store early, but we would leave them in the box until the sell date. The sell date was always stamped on the box. If we were caught doing it, they could refuse to send us other items to sell. You could miss out on some items that were top sellers. Don’t know if this is still the case. That was 12 years ago.

  31. fan of BEGIN You’re right BUZZ is BUZZ!and we’ll take all we can get! No judging here…everyone should do what is comfortable for them! I’m computer challenged so I appreciate all those that can vid, post pics and bring info here! Surprised that I even bought a laptop sometimes…see what David makes us do!!

    angelbymyside…Was hoping the same! Ordered albums from 2 places…guess we always have itunes!! Prefer albums to digital music….showing my age@@ lol

    Off to work …long day ahead! ENJOY all things David!

  32. olemr2001 says:

    This morning I was notified that Sears had shipped my order (2 cds), but I am still waiting to hear from Deseret (1 cd).

  33. tami lyn says:

    note to Target shoppers~ Begin may not be on the shelves on aug 7. when i was looking for TOSOD on its release date, it wasn’t there and manager told me they get shipments in once or twice a week so a CD may not necessarily be on the shelf on the exact release date so when i go into Target on august 7 hope to see it but won’t be surprised if it’s not there yet.

  34. Angelgal3 says:

    VaBeach, Sorry,phone call! Hope all is well with you too!! Oh I’m here for the long haul!! Can’t wait for Begin and everything in the future! I miss David and his beautiful voice. Thank goodness for all the David music I already have to keep me happy!……Well, off to get ready for work now. I’ll be checking in in a few days for Begin!! have a great weekend everyone!! :)

  35. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Begin in 3 days and the fan dinner in 10. The furthest fan that will travel for the dinner will be Gwen from Texas. So excited to see her again! About 30 signed up to go. I looked at the area where Nally will have us eat and there’s room for more people. Pass the word along!! August 14th, Simply Thai in Sandy, Utah at 6 PM.

  36. tami lyn says:

    janel- i sure wish i lived in utah, then i would be there! hope you guys have lots of fun :)

  37. tami lyn says:

    janel- please take lots of pics! :)

  38. tami lyn says:

    just had a crazy thought~ what if frankie is a waiter/waitress there and listens to everyone’s conversations about david and takes notes/secret pics?? lol!

  39. Candy says:

    fan of BEGIN.-I hope what I posted didnt come across as not too cool for school as far as the ology is concerned. I did say that it was a personal choice for me. I really didn’t think anyone pointed a finger…they too just said how they feel.

  40. angelbymyside says:

    Oh Deseret has the supply there now….guess they are waiting to ship on 8/7. I’ve got to check the Sunday paper to see the ads from the big box stores like Target, Best Buy etc. to see if BEGIN. will be in the stores on Tuesday.

  41. kimk says:

    lol!!! love that kid.. he sure is one of a kind!!

    “Broken” is still tenaciously hanging in there at #93 on the iTunes pop chart.

  43. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL Tamilyn I’m sure she has better things to do then hear us talk about David and sing to Begin. So glad Nally will let us play the music. She’s such a pretty lady and so sweet too.

  44. angelbymyside says:
  45. Candy says:

    LOL, OMG Priceless is right. “OH Hi Squirrel”…yep its that focus thing or lack of but if thats what he had to give up to sing like he does…then it was a good trade off! :)

  46. tami lyn says:

    janel- yeah u are probably right :) my imagination tends to work overtime lol! nice photo!

  47. sarahhazel says:

    Haha…watched that squirrel/ADD video in its entirety a couple of days ago….I’ll never tire seeing him ramble on and on….he is the cutest thing on earth, I tell you… :)

  48. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–LOL I love the way your imagination wanders :)

  49. Mckenzie Harris says:

    Regarding Ology, I agree that everyone should do what they think is right to support David. I simply raised the question of what the prize is for David and his fans for winning the contest. A twitter trend – particularly one that is not marked as “promoted” – is valuable to Ology. David and Jessica are giving Ology some valuable free publicity by trending Ology multiple times per day. If there is a prize at the end of the day that helps promote David or if the Archies promoting of Ology is payback for something that Ology and it’s founders did for David or will do for David, I’m fully in support of it. However, If none of this is the case, my personal opinion is that fans’ time could be more productively spent on the eve of release of BEGIN. Pinterest.com, for example, has many similar features as Ology and I noticed some increased activity by fans on Pinterest before the Ology contest started. Now the focus seems to be on Ology rather than Pinterest. However, In terms of reach and popularity, Pinterest blows Ology out of the water. So strategically speaking, if fans wanted to promote David and BEGIN, it would arguably be more effective to develop a large presence on Pinterest. Again, I could be wrong and the prize for winning the contest may be massive. If not, I simply ask: why are we promoting Ology?

  50. sarahhazel says:

    Speaking of rambling David….I watched this one too to ease my “missing David’s vlogs”
    blues a few days ago….yes….parts 1-6 (all 50 minutes of it)!….He is so precious :)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM_wYFy3Apo&playnext=1&list=PLEF0859B93CF50E6D&feature=results_main

  51. tami lyn says:

    thanks sarah! :) haha

  52. cq#DA2014 says:

    This is off topic, but I wonder if Daniel has left for his mission and if he also was assigned to go to a South American country. It would be great if he could be with David. I’m sure David would love to have family with him.

  53. Candy says:

    cq-I think thats a questions for frankie…she/he seems to be in the know. I wasn’t even aware Daniel was contemplating leaving on a mission at this time.

  54. angelbymyside says:

    cq ~ Daniel is going on a mission??

  55. angelbymyside says:

    Mckenzie ~ To be honest, I an not sure what is behind Ology. Not even sure there is a prize for winning! I think many fans have gotten behind it because Kari has tweeted about it. It is a fun way to promote David. As for Pinterest, I just signed up for it a few weeks ago, and I LOVE IT! I have pinned all of David’s videos to my music board as well as promo for BEGIN. In the long run, however way we can promote David is a WIN-WIN! :D

    p.s. I have seen some people on Pinterest with only David related boards which is cool! You don’t need to create other boards if you don’t want. It’s EASY!

  56. prd9601 says:

    ~Doing a few IDs in Manila~ (anyone know what an ID is?)

    Pretty sure that doing an ID is when an artist records an “ID” message for a radio or TV station. Like “This is David Archuleta, and you are listening to 94.5 WLAP, Lexington.”

  57. Good Morning To everyone.
    Joanie fantastic post this morning.
    Utah fans, i am so happy for your fan get together. it will be great,I’m sure.
    I myself, am enjoying looking at pics and vids on ology and commenting.
    I really love when we trend , it brings us all together for an hour or so, with our international fans. But mostly because what ever the topic is, i know that i am doing this for Davids career. So that when he comes home people will still remember who he is.
    Happy to read about the reaction of people in the movie house when they played Beautiful, I’m not surprises because he sings it beautiful.
    3 more days, Im glad i have Itunes to listen to the entire songs on BEGIN.
    Have some coming in mail but i can see they will be late.
    Are we still going to have a buying party on the 7th? If so, i’m in.
    I’m ready to trend when we are ready. I have to go back to Work Aug 7th. will miss all the excitement.
    Lets not forget to give I’ll Never Go and Forevermore some views.
    Vote on Phils Hit list, And MYX top 10.
    Joanie, forgot to mention that i love those pictures of David in the front post. thank you to those who contributed to it. Job well done.

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

    I don’t have a David board on Pinterest. However, I have a few David pins under my Music and Inspiring People boards, and I’ll probably continue to add a few more here and there. Just another option if you don’t want an all David board. :)

  63. cq#DA2014 says:

    Sorry guys, I have no idea about Daniel, I just assumed that every young Mormon would go on a mission. I guess maybe because David is so into his church that all the whole family would be the same.

    Hi everyone, Does anyone recall who mentioned David going on his mission last year? David said it was a fan, obviously it had to be someone close to David to know that information, some thought it was Daniel. Could Daniel be frankie or lurker2. No disrespect if neither are. I also wonder where Don’t touch the hair and her sidekick went?

  68. seven7swans says:

    I don’t believe, in four years, that David ever tweeted his fans to vote for him for “best idol contests.” Now he has done so — while he’s on a mission.

  69. angelbymyside says:

    DYING HERE!!! CAN’T WAIT TO GET BEGIN.

    ‏@Archugeezer

    I won’t spoil anything for anyone. But cannot wait for a group spazz of some sort!!! “Beautiful” – little surprises.

  70. angelbymyside says:

    seven7swans ~ hey if Kari keeps his name out in the public eye for two years…..who really cares?? You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes!

  71. tami lyn says:

    potluck~ i remember the furor on twitter when someone who claimed to know david tweeted that either david was going on a mission or was NOT going. for the life of me i cannot remember his/her twitter name! :( i think i saved it but when i try to go back on twitter and look on at my old tweets i can only get back to may 2012 :( this seems so strange to me. don’t know if it’s a twitter glitch or problem with my computer. i RTed lots of interesting david stuff and would love to be able to go back and find it.

  72. tami lyn says:

    sevenswans~ what?? is there a new tweet from david?

  73. Candy says:

    Woo-Hoo, I loved opening the mailbox and seeing Davids handsome facing staring at me…my catalog from Deseret just arrived! Cover is simple yet symbolic and as always David looks fabulous!

  74. BeautifulAngel says:

    I miss Jenny and Becky who were here when FOD started four years ago. What are they up to now?

  75. I thought Daniel was going to be a Senior in High School . I don’t think he will leave school to go on a mission. If he even goes.

  76. Candy says:

    the tweet was from ks, end of story.

  77. tami lyn says:

    i think kari put that on david’s twitter. she probably asked his permission. maybe that’s what she was talking about in her tweet that she does what she can and she has the ok to do it. maybe some fans were criticizing her for promoting ology??

  78. tami lyn says:

    also there may be some david followers on twitter who are unaware that kari is his manager(how this is possible, who knows) but kari doesn’t have that many followers so david’s 1,000,000+ followers probably don’t know what’s going on. shouldn’t kari have at least a few hundred thousand followers? i don’t get it.

    The BEGIN. cd’s are starting to arrive from Sears. Dang!! Why do I always order from the wrong supplier? j/k ;)

  80. I ordered one from Sears’ OMJ! Hopefully i will get mine early too.

  81. cq#DA2014 says:

    Linda, the reason I commented about the whole mission thing was that I really thought Daniel was done with HS., my mistake. I’m actually very sorry I posted that comment. I was just thinking it would be nice if the two brothers were together that’s all.

  82. Candy says:

    AMBS- Ha, I hear ya, we seem to be headed down the long wait path, first from the PI now from Utah!

  83. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ LOL….yep! :D

  84. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ Still haven’t gotten my Deseret Book fall catalog either!!! :(

  85. Candy says:

    abms-Oh, I think I ordered mine after you posted the link…it came today.

  86. cq#2014, OH! no problem, i was not even sure if Daniel had finished High School. I thought they said he was going to be a senior. Plus i know for a fact that they are not required to go if they don’t want. I have a lot of Moron friends and thats what i have been told.

  87. Sorry messed uo again bad. Meany MORMONS. AYE! AYE! AYE!

  88. Please forgive me for this big mistake. I apologize to all the Mormon on this site. I not good at typing And i get in a hurry. I feel very bad.

  89. angelbymyside says:

    I am reading Eileen’s tweets about BEGIN. OMJ we are in for a real gift from David!!!

  90. Candy says:

    Linda-dont worry about the typo, it makes you a member of an elite club of fans who have made grand typos, (I am a member) although I do think our very own Pastel still wears the best typo ever crown!

  91. angelbymyside says:

    Linda ~ I’m not Mormon but DON’T FEEL BAD! You should see the mistakes when I type sometimes and then there is that darn auto correct lol!

  92. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ Sent you a DM

  93. angelbymyside says:

    ANOTHER ONE…..

    ‏@Shell_eeeyyy

    OH MY HECKKK!!!!’ what a sweet SURPRISE I GOT TODAY!!!! *breathe Shelley breathe* dies http://pic.twitter.com/BQQmBhUv

  94. Candy says:

    auto-correct is my nemesis…I typed the word “pencil” and it auto-corrected to a male body part. Take about your most embarrassing moments!

  95. Candy says:

    I’M JEALOUS!!! I want my BEGIN.cd and I want it now!!

  96. angelbymyside says:

    lol auto correct is evil at times! ;)

  97. Thank you for making me feel a little better. I was so imbarassed that i was thinking of staying away from comments today, until i compose myself. Thank you for understanding.

  98. angelbymyside says:

    Linda ~ good thing you changed your mind. We have all made mistakes with our typing at one time or another!

  99. kimk says:

    I am so jealous!!!!!!

  100. sarahhazel says:

    Cd’s arriving??!!!….Lucky peeps!!!

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

    Linda – LOL…no worries I’m sure.

  102. angelbymyside says:

    LUCKY PEEPS!!!!!!

  103. tami lyn says:

    i wonder if M and kari talk about david(would love to be a fly one the wall for that)! i still think M had a little crush on him lol :)

  104. tami lyn says:

    oops~ on the wall. must be a typo kinda day :)

  105. I’m crushed! I ordered from Sears but no Cd for me today. I have to wait till Monday, i guess. Hopefully. But anyway if i recieved it as much as it would tempt me, i was going to wait until Aug 7th to open it.

  106. fan of BEGIN. says:

    OMH! People got their cd’s already! I’m jealous! lols I want mine NOW!!!! BEGIN. is going to be awesome to listen to on road trips.

    Don’t worry Candy, your good. I’m ok now, just got a little over sensitive for no reason. Everyone has the right to their opinion so it’s all good. I’m over it. Thank you anyway for listening.

    Mckenzie Harris, I did the ology thing for 2 days because I wanted to show a little support to Kari and David that is all. I see your point and I was wondering the same thing but sometimes fandoms just do things to support the artist with nothing in return. Getting a little buzz for BEGIN. is good enough. :) I applaud Kari for being so dedicated, she is awesome.

    So EXCITED about BEGIN. !!!!! Linda don’t worry about your typo, I make them all the time and I put my foot in mouth all the time too, not just on this board, lols. Your typo actually made me giggle and smile. Thank you for that.

    You guys rock! Love all the gifs and pics. David just makes me happy.

  107. Candy says:

    I think SEARS just moved up a few notches on peoples fav store lists!

  108. Anita says:

    I’m trying to be content with BROKEN being #93 on the Pop Chart on ITunes, but this is absolutely the best song David has ever written, and deserves to be in the Top 10! I’ll keep praying David’s day will come!

  109. angelbymyside says:

    You really can’t beat the SEARS price….$8.99 plus 99cents for shipping. Best price I’ve seen!!

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

    Anita – David didn’t write Broken…though I’m sure it’s nice.

  111. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yikes, going to get the mail….crossing fingers I’m one of the lucky ones!!

  112. Did i read on comments yesterday that we are trending today ( Archies Rock Ology )?
    We need to trend twice today to get extra points. But we also need to get Begin in there somehow to promote the Album.

  113. angelbymyside says:

    ***DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT*** CLICK ON THIS IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED!!!

    SPOILER ALERT!!! PIC FROM BEGIN.

    @Shell_eeeyyy @myheartsong I’ll do one so I don’t spoil it sshhhhh http://pic.twitter.com/pOVnbZFJ

  114. sarahhazel says:

    OMJ….that should’ve been the album cover!!!

  115. Anita says:

    ksf-Actually David wrote the music, but another man wrote the lyrics to BROKEN!

  116. sarahhazel says:

    Dang, I’m sure there’s more pics in there….but that one’s absolutely fabulous!

  117. angelbymyside says:

    sarahhazel ~ Eeeeeeeeep ;)

  118. tami lyn says:

    sarah- i so totally agree! that should have been the album cover!!!

  119. Candy says:

    HOLY CRAP!!! That inside picture, with two buttons unbuttoned no less!!! Gah…going to dieeeeeeee! HE KNOWS!!

  120. Anita says:

    Those lucky fans who received BEGIN. today! If I would receive my CD’s, I vowed to not listen to the album until August 7th. I wonder if those peeps will wait. They already opened it up, so the temptation must be terrible about now, LOL!!!!!

  121. sarahhazel says:

    Oh, my goodness, the pics alone might kill me before I could even play the music…haha!

  122. cq#DA2014 says:

    No album, dang. Have to wait til next week.

  123. Candy says:

    That may be my all time favorite picture…#speechless

  124. tami lyn says:

    mr. david archuleta just sittin in a chair
    lookin hot n’ sexy with that incredible hair
    :)

  125. Candy says:

    sarahhazrel-I was thinking the same thing…who will survive that picture to actually be able to listen to the cd!

  126. Candy says:

    “Im too sexy for this shirt” or “Im sexy and I know it” comes to mind. LOL
    Lordy, can you imagine what another two years is going to do to his looks….kill us all.

  127. angelbymyside says:

    OMH I just made that pic bigger!!! ;)

  128. tami lyn says:

    omg candy LOL! u are right, 2 buttons undone! what is he trying to do to us??! :)

  129. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–was expecting that from you….haha!

  130. tami lyn says:

    he is too sexy for that shirt, no doubt :)

  131. sarahhazel says:

    abms–did that too….dang, could be dangerous to your health!

  132. Tami _lyn ROTF. HaHa! I too expected you to react that way. I’m Older and i’m impressed. So There.

  133. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ :) yes it had to be said

  134. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–ROFL

  135. tami lyn says:

    thanks linda :) haha!

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

    Anita – I know but just repeating what Kari said.

  137. Candy says:

    I do love the cover BUT this is beyond description…wonder if it comes in wallpaper!!

  138. tami lyn says:

    hi ksf :) did u look at that pic??

  139. tami lyn says:

    maybe they were afraid if that was the cover it would fly off the shelves and they wouldn’t be able to keep up with the demand for new orders!! lol

  140. kimk says:

    lol you guys crack me up.. thanks!!! :D

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

    tami lyn – yes, lol. But (putting up my egg shield) I don’t really care for it? I don’t even like the album cover but I think I still prefer it to this one. Sorry! :shock:

  142. tami lyn says:

    ksf- omg really? ok :)

  143. Frankie says:

    I am NOT Jon Hunt. Or David.

  144. Candy says:

    LOL Frankie :)

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

    tami lyn – yep, haha! I think it’s the color, the hair, the shirt…There are so many better pics of him…like any done by Matt Clayton for example, or the one that Tracy posted the other day.

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

    Imo

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

    Frankie – aka Lurker 2?

  148. Candy says:

    at the top of the thread Davids talking about Be Still My Soul and we’re flailing over the newest picture!! Oh the irony…

  149. tami lyn says:

    thanks frankie :)

  150. Candy says:

    Frankie-I do have an inkling as to who you are…your secret is safe with me. :)

  151. Frankie says:

    I don’t think you do.

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

    I think Frankie is whoever is convenient at the moment. He/she is a shape-shifter, lol. A morphologist. :P We can use our imagination.

  153. tami lyn says:

    omg ksf! that is hilarious LOL :)

  154. Candy says:

    lol ksf

  155. kimk says:

    Lol!!

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

    tami lyn – maybe he/she really is the proverbial “fly in the wall” come to life!! Who else would know what shampoo he uses or that he “giggles and cries” when he kisses? It all makes PERFECT sense!!

  157. tami lyn says:

    frankie~ are you claudia?

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

    fly on the wall that is

  159. tami lyn says:

    omg ksf, i forgot all about the “giggling and crying”! LOL!

  160. Frankie says:

    Nope

  161. tami lyn says:

    thanks :)

  162. Candy says:

    giggles and cries when he kisses…what the heck did I miss….who said that…and who did he kiss!! Fess up peeps!

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

    tami lyn – LOL :P I must admit that Frankie has definitely exposed different sides of David that we, the public, had no idea about. Isn’t it cool to have the inside scoop from someone who “knows?”

  164. tami lyn says:

    i don’t remember :( maybe ksf does

  165. tami lyn says:

    yes :)

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

    Candy – lol! That was one of Frankie’s first appearances here in FOD. Someone asked if he/she was Jasmine and he/she/it confessed that they were and told us that David possessed the psychotic tendencies of giggling and crying when they kissed. It was QUITE a revelation!!

  167. tami lyn says:

    i want to know if david is happy. don’t want to think that he might be lonely or homesick.

  168. kimk says:

    huh??
    I’m with Candy fess up!!

  169. Candy says:

    OMG ksf and you believed that or just went along with the story…

  170. tami lyn says:

    ksf- i remember now! “jasmine” said she moved to US and was living in the basement LOL!

  171. Candy says:

    oh gesssh the Javid story…sorry ksf- being away for two weeks I m not sure whats real anymore and whats Javid!! LOL

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

    Candy – lol! It was just silliness and very entertaining. I never trust anyone who “knows” David around here but it was hilarious just the same! :P

  173. Candy says:

    oh and Frankie-I know more then you think ;)

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

    Candy – this wasn’t Javid. The giggling and crying story was all Frankie!

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

    tami lyn – haha! I wonder if she’s still living in David’s basement?? Frankie – can u fill us in?

  176. Candy says:

    ksf-ROTF-I really am out of the loop. Its probably a good thing I missed it!!

  177. tami lyn says:

    omg u guys, cannot stop laughing!

  178. Candy says:

    me either tami and I’m not even sure what Im laughing at!

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

    Candy – LOL! I just hope that he/she/it continues to share all of their “knowledge” with us. It’s priceless! ;)

  180. Candy says:

    hmmm come to think of it…Davids house does have a basement…

  181. tami lyn says:

    omg. what if frankie is M?!

  182. tami lyn says:

    lol candy :) wouldn’t it be a hoot if the real jasmine was reading this right now?!

  183. tami lyn says:

    she’d be thinking to herself~ what on earth is that all about?? lol!

  184. A Fan says:

    Love the picture from album. just sayin….lol I often wonder if David picks the photo’s if goes for the ones that are the least sexy since he doesn’t see himself that way? But little does he know that is how a lot of his fans see him especially when he is on stage and belting out songs.

  185. Candy says:

    A Fan-he is sexy…just in a wholesome way. Nothing wrong with that…nothing wrong with admiring him for it either. :)

  186. tami lyn says:

    God blessed david with amazing talent and looks! :)

  187. cq#DA2014 says:

    Agree with you Candy and A fan, he is sexy in a wholesome way. Imo, it makes him even more sexy that it comes to him naturally with really trying.

  188. A Fan says:

    *meant to say if he goes for… David is a handsome man and he needs to own it. I hope when he returns he will be more comfortable with it. JMHO

  189. Candy says:

    me too A Fan-if I hear him say even once that he is weird looking or is a Dork…hes going to be in big trouble! The very thing that he admires and respects in others…he doesn’t see in himself. I too hope he has outgrown that by the time he comes home! At 24 it wont be so cute…

  190. A Fan says:

    I’m hoping when he returns he turns into a Latin hunk…hehe

  191. Candy says:

    well folks, my “me time” meter has expired. It was great catching up with everyone. BBL

  192. Candy says:

    A Fan-dont see that being a problem…he was one before he left. ;) Later

  193. tami lyn says:

    a shirtless Latin hunk! :) see u later candy :)

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

    Bye Candy!

  195. A Fan says:

    Candy! I stand corrected you are right. But…I mean play the part by us getting to see some of the those latin dance moves he keeps hinden that I know he has but keeps it on the downlow. lol

  196. A Fan+ David is so handsome wish he would except that fact. Especially when he is on stage. OMG!

  197. A Fan says:

    *hiding…can’t spell today.

  198. tami lyn says:

    was just checking my e-mail and had one from yankee candles, already advertising their 2012 halloween candles!! crazy

  199. tami lyn says:

    watching iron chef and they are cooking with octopus! omg yucky! :(

  200. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

  203. tami lyn says:

    hi sgj :) have a nice evening

  204. I got a confirmation from walmart too that my order has been mailed. They shipped it out on the 3rd. Probably wont receive it till mon, same as sears.

  205. Candy says:

    Ok, so Wally World and Sears are beating Deseret books to the punch and mailing BEGIN. early! I know where I’m shopping from now on!

  206. Martha says:

    I got my confirmation also Friday that my CD had been shipped from Walmart. And the money has been taken out of my debit card. I order lots of stuff on the internet and they give you dates which are not necessarily true. You get stuff earlier alot of times. Hoping!

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

    Martha – I’ve seen that pic before but not the gif. Thanks!

  208. Martha _ I saw that picture at the very beginning, It was a big deal because we had never seen David hug a girl before.
    Wish he would have held Anya like that on Nandito Ako. That was special.

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

    Linda – in the last episode he did…although under sad circumstances.

  210. Ksf- Yes, your right.

  211. Martha says:

    While at Deseret Book, took a picture of this beautiful banner. Nope, they weren’t playing Begin and couldn’t wait around to see if they would because had to go do other things. http://twitpic.com/afj72f

  214. Martha says:

    Wonder if that will get them blocked by Twitter.

  215. breanne says:

    Tonight at 9 pm ET, 7 pm MT, 6 pm PT we are going to trend: Archies Rock Ology to get David 25,000 more points. The trend from last night didn’t count because it didn’t have Ology in it! :(

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

    Hello Everyone! Gosh, people are receiving their cd’s already??? Mine shipped from Walmart yesterday, so maybe mon or tues, there’s Itunes though, pre-ordered, WOOOT!

    We had a party for my Grandma today, she turned 103 today :grin: Really nice party, but everyones tired,lol. Got my Mom & Dad some Kentucky Fried Chicken, told them to eat, then plop on the couch & relax :grin: So nice to see relatives I havent seen in a while too :grin:

  217. kimk says:

    holy moly I saw some of the pics from BEGIN’s inner cover.. you all and I WILL DIE!!
    GAH!!!!!!!

  218. kimk says:

    love that banner Janel!! thanks!

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

    Hey Kimk! I just those pics on twitter, OH MY HECK :shock: :grin: I have no willpower, plus I’m too tired right now to resist :roll:

  220. kimk says:

    love what I hear about the cd so far.. think WE WILL LOVE IT ALL!!

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

    kimk – lol! So did I. Whoever chose the cover had plenty of gorgeous ones to choose from :)

  222. kimk says:

    ksf ha incentive to buy the cd!!! :)

  223. kimk says:

    Beth ha yeah.. WHAT A HUNK!

  224. kimk says:

    Martha it will die down.. glad to see her fanbase is all revved up.
    will help her down the road.

  225. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Um, wait, we did trend something last night with Ology in it. I have the twitpic to prove it. I sure as heck hope they gave David the points for it. http://twitpic.com/af91cr

  226. kimk says:

    Linda it seemd David was having a hard time getting past the looks and such.. hope when he gets back him being older he will be ok with human contact of the female kind. ha or in other words kiss the girl!

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

    kimk, seeing my Grandma today turning 103, I hope when I am that old, we’re all in the retirement section of the Archuhospital/Retirement Archuvillage rockin’ in our chairs/wheelchairs/rolling chairs to Zero Gravity & now Pride(In the Name of Love), wearing plaid of course. Its a requirement now, it will be then :grin: Maybe we can get David to make an appearance, with his grandkids as his backup singers, maybe a due with Cher, I’m sure she’ll still be around :lol: (Hey Russ, is that you who is a big fan of Cher :grin: ??? )

  228. Martha says:

    Janel – we did. It was David Archuleta Begins With Ology

    We also trended in Philippines and Indonesia with should give us 10,000 points each. Wonder who informs them that we trended.

  229. kimk says:

    Janel yup he did.

    don’t think he will win against Jessica S.. they have a lot to spazz about right now her being around and just getting off of idol. but it sure is fun to see all the posts and things there and to get his name going around again!
    doing pretty great for someone who basically has dropped off the face of the earth way I see it!

  230. kimk says:

    Beth ha I already have a ton of stuff for my Edith wall!!!

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

    duet (not due) Having trouble with the letter T on my keyboard, Dang The Freud, where the heck is that little troublemaker? The Freud, The Freud, Yoo-Hoo where are you, dinners almost ready, come jump in the big pot, er, ummm, hmmm, I mean come see whats cooking in the pot. Yeah, thats it, whats cooking in the pot, put your head real close so you can smell all the spices & herbs(hahaha, that go so well with chicken :lol: hehehehe)

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

    kimk, lol, me too :lol: Luckily, with every guest suite at the Archuhospital, in particular the Broken Wing, a storage locker will be provided. When drawing up the plans for the facility, this was one of the first things we realized was a must :grin:

    Thats right, David Archuleta Begins With Ology was trended, is there a place to notify them, maybe by twitter?

  233. Tracy says:

    Wow, why didnt they use that picture at 5:16 as the cover picture?? Guess maybe you guys are right and David himself didnt want to post any picture that goodlooking, but come on that picture would sell millions for sure… :)

  234. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ Happy 103rd birthday to your grandma. God bless her! :D

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

    Tracey, I think the pic they are using on the cover is the right one for the type of cd he recorded. Lets face it, with David, is there a bad pic,lol. I LOVE the cd cover & I admit I looked at some of the other pics on twitter, think they’re all incredible. Cant wait to see what other pics might before in the future. David is way to good to us fans. We are the luckiest fans in the world :grin:

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

    Hey abms! Awwwe Thanks, I really appreciate that. She’s an absolute sweetheart & it was a great party today, love her like crazy :grin:

  237. Kimk I agree with you about Jessica probably winning, biengs she also has lot of teens her age to vote for her. They don’t have chores to like we do. But We are giving them the run for thier money. At least they know we are there. So don’t take your eyes off or the Archies will come from behind,LOL. We have to try and keep trynig never know. But second would be good. Keep Davids name out there. I’m ready to trend.

  238. keep trying you never know.

    we sure do love David!!

  242. kimk says:

    I love the BEGIN cover.
    and the inside.
    and the music.
    and whatever else there is!

  243. There are a lot of comments on MJ but mine is the only one about David. We need a few comments on there to support him.

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

    Linda, Thanks so much & yes she is. Another Great, Great Grandchild is on the way, cant wait :grin:

  245. Tracy says:

    I too love Begin. Love whats inside and everything that it is about and stands for. Can not wait to get it and share with others what greatness it is.
    I guess i am in the minority but that cover picture is not my favorite, hoping the next ablum cover will blow people away. :)

  246. angelbymyside says:

    I’ve gotta stay strong….CD pics are floating around on Twitter. I don’t want to look at any more until I have my CD but from what I hear they are DEADLY!! ;)

  247. kimk says:

    3h Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    @muldur Everyone will have their own spazz-o-matic reaction when they first hear this, and I will enjoy seeing it all. We are lucky fans!

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    Currently stuck on that first song. If David Archuleta tells me I’m “Beautiful,” I sure as heck am going listen again. And again.

  248. kimk says:

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    @Shell_eeeyyy The orchestration, David’s voice, the arrangement…

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    @Shell_eeeyyy I know! So much more than expected! I am blown away.

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    @pabuckie Haha! I should have said “specific.” A very specific message to fans.

  249. kimk says:

    Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    @snowangelzz is gonna love jazz-infused “Beautiful.” Snippet was bare bones.

    4h Eileen ‏@Archugeezer
    In the name of love, have some mercy, David!!!!

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

    Tracey, I have to say, from alot of things I’ve heard, this cd cover has blown people away :grin: I’m sure whats on the inside will too, can the fandom stand it :grin:

    abms, you’re a stronger woman than I. I saw them on twitter & well, what can I say :roll:

    Tracy – nothing wrong with being in the minority ;)

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

    kimk, LOVE those tweets, thanks for bringing them here. I saw a few on twitter, but some I havent seen, LOVE them. I love the one that says if Davids says I’m Beautiful, I’m going to listen to it again & again, lol

  256. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Took a sneak peek at all the pictures gemzone shared. Sigh. I hope it gets here Monday or Tuesday.

  257. kimk says:

    angel me thinks we will LOVE BEGIN!!!!!!

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

    abms, If I stomp my feet asking for my cd, I’m going to break my foot :lol: Gosh, cant stand it anymore,lol. Happy for those who did get it, so we get these little tidbits, makes it even more exciting, to get the cd, cant wait!

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

    Gotta go take a mini-nap, will set alarm clock, so I can help trend. It starts at 8 eastern, 7 central, if I’m not mistaken. If someone would confirm that in one of there comments, I’ll see it when I get back. BBS

  260. Martha says:

  261. Cheryl #DA2014 says:

    I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!Just received my CD that I ordered from Sears–just came in today’s mail. Just listened once through–favorites so far–SOWK, Angel, DGU, BOTW, Broken, Pride, and BSMS. Quote from David in the Thank You section: “I want you to know that I won’t stop music, and will continue when I get back.” Woo Hoo!!!!Props to our favorite guy, David Archuleta.

  262. nora says:

    abs-i’m with you I want to wait until I get my CD before i see the pictures inside.I hope I can hold off that long, Who knows!!

    Are we not trending about BEGIN tonight or what, maybe we’ll know before long.
    Does anybody know if we are going to have a cd buying on Itunes on 8-7, if we do count me in. Thanks

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

    Well, thankfully I bought BEGIN. for what’s on the inside since I’m not one who’s “blown away” by the outside. His face looks a little “bloated” to me. I hope that some of the other pics will be used in some capacity in the future :)

  264. Martha says:

    Like to see us have a buying party. Maybe something will be said after Ology is over.

    Like to see trending about BEGIN. too.

  265. Tracy says:

    Ksf- You and me :)

  266. Martha says:

    Ksf and Tracy – and me too

  267. alana says:

    Wondering…did David have the pic for the album taken when he was having dental problems? Maybe that is why his left side looks a bit swollen?

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

    Tracy – lol! I thought I was the only one…it just looks wrong to me. Why this one when there were sooo many others?

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

    Martha & Alana – haha! It’s like TOSOD confessions all over again. Tracy, maybe you’re right. There’s definitely some puffiness there.

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

    Sorry, I meant Alana you may be right about the dental probs.

  271. kimk says:

    Cheryl ahh thanks I LOVE THAT!! HE WILL BE DOING MUSIC!!! YES!!

  272. sweetonda says:

    Just got my mail and received my 5 CD’s from Sears! I’m so excited to listen to this, but right now I’m just looking at it with a big smile on my face. :) Don’t think I can wait til Tuesday. Going to listen to this baby tonight in bed when I can totally enjoy it all by myself! Wasn’t expecting this at all. It has sure made my day which has been not so great!

  273. Tracy says:

    Martha :)

    Ksf- thats exactly my point, there are soo many other pictures much worthy of what this cd is about that would grab and attack the buyer…lol
    My daughter (age 19) said the same as you, of the cover pic,” it’s just wrong” when you know he looks better then that. oh well nuff said, love whats inside and the voice and message is what matters the most i guess.

  274. kimk says:

    ksf ha bloated? he looks like that in real life.. glowy eyes and all!! GAH!

  275. alana says:

    Only thing I could think of to explain it..hmm anyway, can’t wait for my cd!

  276. Martha says:

    I know, lets trend this tonight:

    I Should Have Ordered From Sears David Archuleta

    JK – I almost ordered from Sears!!Aye!

  277. nora says:

    Tracy I don’t think it is the picture that is on the outside of the CD, which I think is really good (JMO), that sells the CD, I think it is David and his voice. If people like David they will buy it, if they don’t they will not.

  278. tami lyn says:

    i don’t like album cover either.

  279. tami lyn says:

    if there had used a really cute pic then maybe some people shopping would have stopped and thought- ooh who is this cute guy? and they might look at it and decide to buy it even if they are not currently a fan. so maybe david made it only specifically for his fans. who knows?

  280. Tracy says:

    Nora- Of course its that wonderful voice, there is no mistake there and yes if you are a fan of his already you would buy it no matter what. It’s getting others to buy as well.

  281. Tracy says:

    Tami lyn–now thats what im talking about lol :)

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

    Tracy – lol that’s funny…but “just wrong” about sums it up. But, I, too am definitely looking forward to the music :)

    kimk – yep…everything but the bloating!

    alana – it could be…although the other pics don’t look that way. Maybe they were shot in a different day?

  283. Anita says:

    sweetonda-I’m glad that David’s CD’s came at just the right time to help turn your day around! Happy listening!

  284. kimk says:

    Martha rofl!!!

  285. It’s like a cracker jack box. Kids don’t buy it for the cracker jack, they buy it for the prize inside.

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

    tami lyn – u too? Lol.

  287. Sweetonda, enjoy your Begin cd. Mine didn’t come so will have to wait until mon or tues. Hope its mon.

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

    Tracy – exactly. Of course those that are already fans will buy it, but those that aren’t…just wrong.

  289. tami lyn says:

    like someone said there is a specific message inside to the fans. maybe he didn’t want casual buyers to have it for that reason. maybe it’s like a gift just for us devoted fans?

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

    tami lyn – ROTFL! Only a pic fans could love?

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

    I’m sorry, but Good Grief, I’m all for free speech, but the man has given us a spectacular gift & people are going on & on about the cd cover, which is gorgeous, I’m sorry, but can we drop it & just enjoy the incredible music & be grateful for that & the heart & soul behind that gift. Sorry, well, no I’m not. I usually try to be the peacekeeper & see all sides, but, dang it, let it go. If I’ve gone too far, well, tough cookies,lol, I just couldnt keep it in anymore. I think I needed a longer nap :roll:

  292. tami lyn says:

    ksf- kinda yeah but i’m a fan and i don’t love it lol. don’t hate it but definitely don’t love it.

  293. nora says:

    Tracy, why do you have such a hang up about a CD picture, his face does not look bloated, you have made it very clear that you don’t like the picture, you informed us that last night and how many times tonight. The picture is what it is, you can’t go back now and change it, just be happy that we have music from David. you have a right to your opinion, just like most of us do, and we have a right to express it, like you have done.

  294. angelbymyside says:

    “bloated”? Now that’s a new one!!! :lol:

  295. tami lyn says:

    maybe too it means that david doesn’t like the fact that he is so good looking and he knows that is part of the reason for his success and he only wants people to love him for what’s inside? i mean he is such a message person maybe everything about the CD has a hidden message. would not surprise me! :)

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

    Beth – “tough cookies” lol! No one said we didn’t love the music! Good grief! It can’t always be squeeing and no realness. Yes, we’re ALL excited about BEGIN. but no one is being mean spirited by expressing their opinions.

  297. nora says:

    Beth- I couldn’t agree with you more, just let it go and let us enjoy the music that David worked so hard to leave us with and be thankful for that instead of going on about his CD picture, which I think is great. Enough is enough!!

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

    tami lyn – you crack me up! So, he put a bloated pic on the outside so people wouldn’t be distracted? LOL!

  299. Candy says:

    well we could always photoshop it so that all you see are those ruby red lips and those laser beam eyes…then there would be nothing to discuss!!

  300. nora says:

    ksf- you expressed your opinion along with Tracy and we know what it is, we didn’t say you couldn’t express your opinion, but enough is enough. Just let us talk about the music.

  301. tami lyn says:

    beth- no one is fighting, we are just stating our opinion. don’t think we have to act like programmed clones here and agree on everything. that would not be interesting at all.

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

    So…it’s fine to go “on and on” AS LONG AS you love it, but not okay to “go on and on” if you don’t? Um, yeah.

  303. angelbymyside says:

    SUGGESTION: if you don’t like the album cover, cut out a pic you do like and paste over it….. PROBLEM SOLVED!! It’s all about the music…or at least it should be!! Let’s enjoy the great music David left for us!! :D

  304. Anita says:

    I have definately grown to like David’s CD cover very much. I didn’t at first. It really is a handsome pic of him!!

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

    Nora- um…and who decides when “enough is enough?”

  306. tami lyn says:

    nora- when u say enough is enough u are basically telling people to stop talking :(

  307. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    breanne ..Thanks for the trend tonight. 9p.m.eastern time. Archies Rock Ology.

  308. tami lyn says:

    ksf- omg girl! brainshare! again LOL :)

  309. angelbymyside says:

    Who buys a CD because of the album cover anyway??? Well I guess if you’re a teenybopper and it’s the Biebs you might! ;)

  310. alana says:

    I don’t HATE the pic, I think it is beautiful but seemed to me his left side looked a bit different. No big deal really. I’m all about the music and the VOICE.

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

    abms – that would be fine but I seem to recall MANY conversations of those who feel the opposite way so…No one said that they weren’t going to enjoy the music. This is so silly…it’s really being blown way out of proportion.

  312. Amanda Jane says:

    Hi all!!!!!!

    I’m so jealous of everyone who has gotten their copy! :) Sounds absolutely amazing! I’m so excited for all those who have gone spoiler free – I couldn’t help listening to the snippets.

    Crossing my fingers Deseret will come through with a quick delivery? :) Wishful thinking? :)

  313. Candy says:

    abms-DM

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

    ksf, actually, it is beginning to sound a bit mean, he looks bloated, etc….and honestlly, its getting on my nerves. I know not everyone will feel the same way about things & everything is sweetness & light, but hearing people go on & on about it, I think, is mean. Not intentional, I no, but….. Its not a great pic, many are better, it looks this, it looks that. I dont mean to slam anyones opinion, but we have so much to squee about, why nitpic about the cd pic. I do want us to be all positive, because David didnt have to do this, but he said it would be disrespectful to the fans if he didnt. Well, I think its being disrespectful to keep going on about not liking the cover. Maybe I’m at a loss for words, for anyone not liking it. Thats your right, but the cd comes out on Tues, thats the cover, can we just be all about the cd & all its Epic Epicness :grin: I really seem to have a bee in my bonet over this & you probably want to reach for a fly swatter & come at me with, lol. I’m just so grateful to David for this gift, thats all I can think about :grin: Tomato Shield has been engaged :lol: Despite what I just said, love all of Davids fans :grin:

    Nora :grin:

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

    tami lyn – I know!! :)

    Say what you will but first impressions are important, even when it comes to The D.

  316. Tracy says:

    Free speech for some I guess……I get it. :(

  317. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. Are you going to trend? Don’t you go to church about then? I thought we have to have David’s name in there too. Hope this counts.

  318. Amanda Jane says:

    Let’s just chill y’all :) we are THIS close to a new album release, relish the moment!

    ABMS – have you still only listened to Broken? It’s hard to remember who’s spoiler free and who isn’t…

  319. angelbymyside says:

    ksf ~ it sure is being blown out of proportion. It strikes me funny to read David has “bloating and dental problems”! Really????

  320. tami lyn says:

    beth- i love that u are so positive :) but it’s also interesting to hear real and honest opinions too. and we all can’t spazz about the music cuz lots of us don’t have the album yet.

  321. angelbymyside says:

    Amanda Jane ~ Nope….I caved! Listened to every snippet! lol

  322. bds says:

    Just wanted to say I like the cover pic. It shouldn’t be a big mystery why this pic was chosen when we think what David has said about the music on this CD and what these songs represent to him. A more serious and humble picture is in order and fits with what he is doing right now.

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

    Beth – actually, I think it’s “mean” to express anything but robotic praise around here. I think anything else is considered sacrilege, lol. And…sorry that other people’s discussions/opinions get on your nerves.

    So…Tracy, Martha, Alana, tami lyn, and anyone else who does not agree with the masses…just keep it to yourselves. You’ll break the FOD code of conduct if you don’t, lol!

  324. kimk says:

    lol. one way to know David and his music is about to hit the scene.. things get edgy.

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

    I’m sorry, I’m really tired & when I’m tired, I talk alot & dont sensor what I say. Everyone here has a right to say what they want to say, think what they think, feel what they feel. I dont want to take that away from anyone. I meant what I said as far as how I feel about the cover, the music & such, but I could’ve been more diplomatic. This is the first time I just commented & didnt care about re-reading them. I wont do that again. I will not be speaking of this again, I’m going to be quiet now & concentrate on helping to trend tonight.

  326. Amanda Jane says:

    Haha, ABMS :) I had intended to and it lasted all of a few hours until I caved.

    I forgot to wish FOD a happy 4th yesterday! Hard to believe the years have rolled by this quickly.

  327. SGJ- I’m going to church tomorrow morning instead so that i can trend. See you there.

  328. nora says:

    ksf- enough is enough after you have stated your opinion and you have nothing more to add and nothing that will make a difference, you don’t like the picture we all know that but you don’t have to keep going on and almost making fun of it, when you start that that is enough.I think you have stated your opinion in more ways than one.

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

    abms – yes, really!! Some of us actually have the GALL to say what we think! Shocking! And, we still love David! And, we will continue to be real!! Wow.

  330. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth.. Just read about your grandmother’s 103 birthday. God bless her. Did I read wrong. Mr. Sgj thought we saw you bought Kentucky Fried CHICKEN. What did Mr. Freud,Lloyd, Boyd and Floyd think of that??

  331. tami lyn says:

    beth- i don’t think anyone here wants u to be quiet or censor yourself. just say whatever u want, it’s all good :)

  332. SGJ, i”m sure you can throw Davids name in there somewhere if you want.

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

    nora – you’ve stated yours a couple of times as well so I guess you should take your own advice. But, thanks for clarifying!

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

    Tracy – ur right, unfortunately :(

  335. tami lyn says:

    ksf- i also like when people keep it real. no reason to be a robot. david wouldn’t want that.

  336. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda .. See you there 4 more minutes to countdown. L&G start your engines.

  337. Tracy says:

    Kinda feels as if you dont go along with the rest of the clan and agree to everything then what you say doesnt matter, is this a make believe place or what??
    KSF- true story, sometimes its better just to lurk. :)

  338. angelbymyside says:

    Say what you think….who is stopping you??? Continue on being REAL!!!

  339. Candy says:

    I heard Home depot is having a sale on duct tape…

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

    tami lyn – I agree. I mean, if I actually cared what people thought of me on a public forum I certainly wouldn’t be here for sure! We are not always going to agree and I’m glad that we don’t. The problem is that people get their panties in a wad about something as trivial as an album cover!

  341. kimk says:

    I say what I feel for the most part.

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

    Candy – LOL…too bad I can’t afford it.

  343. Tracy says:

    Really Candy??

  344. kimk says:

    ha duct tape.. hurts when it comes off. don’t ask me why I know that.

  345. Amanda Jane says:

    Everyone has their own opinions, it’s cool. I actually like the CFTH cover. Commence tomato throwing…

    I’m going to reserve judgement on BEGIN.’s cover until I can hold it in my hands and wipe my tears of joy and excitement off of it…then I’ll let you know how it looks ;-)

  346. nora says:

    ksf-I will take my own advice and I won’t say another thing. Thanks for clarifying it for me also.

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

    Hey supergrand! Yeah, you read right, its ok though, my fine feathered friends are at the movies. Its a special showing of “The Birds” & “Bye, Bye Birdie” a double bill :lol: !

    tami-lyn, Thanks. I guess though, some of us say how we feel & thats censoring those who dont feel the same, so I’m a little confused. I always want people to say how they really feel. I guess we’ve all said how we feel, I guess I just want to move on from it & talk about the music. Well, as soon as we get our copy. Why cant mail be delivered on Sundays, dang it :grin: Its driving me crazy(I know, short trip :grin: ), gotta hear that cd!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  348. kimk says:

    Archies Rock Ology

  349. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Hey guys!! :) Who’s excited for Tuesday? I saw where some peeps have gotten theirs already. I ordered 2 from Sears and they’re supposed to be here Thursday. Thankfully, I also ordered a copy from Itunes, so I don’t have to wait. :D

    I only clicked on one of the picture links, because I want to be surprised. Gosh the anticipation is killing me. But always in a good way when it comes to D. ;)

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

    kimk, lol

    AmandaJane :grin:

    Time to Trend

  351. Candy says:

    kimk-LOL not touching that with a ten foot pole!!

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

    Tracy – I hope you don’t go back to just lurking…we need more people who will be on the front lines when the eggs, tomatoes, rocks, etc. are thrown! :P

  353. alana says:

    I guess I will go back to lurking, I wasn’t trying to be mean. Will probably be back when my cd comes in the mail(hopefully soon, it was mailed off yesterday!!!!).

  354. tami lyn says:

    beth- did u order it online? i’m gonna get mine at Target whenever they get it in, which is hopefully this week! and omg if it’s not there by this coming friday and i have to ask for a manager again i will be :(

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

    alana – I really don’t think you were “mean” at all. I think what you said is a real possibility given what is seen in the pic. But, I agree. Can’t wait to hear BEGIN.

  356. angelbymyside says:

    it must be the summer heat…everyone is a bit touchy! ;)

    Alana ~ it’s ok…we know you weren’t mean. Hoping we all get out CD’s on time!

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

    tami-lyn I ordered 3 from Walmart & they sent me an email that they were shipped at 4:08am yesterday, the 3rd. I should’ve just sent The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd to go pic them up for me, just didnt think of it :lol: Dang it :roll: I’ll have to wait til next week. Gotta make sure I look at the Target ad tomorrow, to see if its there.

  358. Martha says:

    Already trending Worldwide

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

    alana, you get yourself back here & comment, thats an order, well, a request, a helpful suggestion, just a thought :roll: :grin:

  361. Martha says:

    Trending in Salt Lake, Dallas, LA, and Atlanta

    Trending WW, US still

    Wish we could do this for BEGIN.

  363. tami lyn says:

    beth- oh i forgot about the target ad! i will look at mine too tomorrow :)

  364. Tracy says:

    Ksf- No I haven’t gone into lurking yet, none of us did anything wrong, if some of us want to talk about how that picture looks then we should be able to. We didnt say anything bad or hurt anyones feeling, i mean others talk about some really silly things and we all read it lol. I am an honest person, people just need to deal with it. :)

    Thanks Beth and Ksf. Going to help trend some and then handing the computer over to my little brother. Thanks for understanding. I love David.

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

    Tracy – I totally agree. Glad you’re still here. What song are you looking forward to hearing most on BEGIN.?

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

    Alana – ur welcome :) Have a good night!

  368. angelbymyside says:

    @gemzone: Looked who stopped by to listen to BEGIN. Had to feed him first. Lol http://t.co/Q0abkv8X

  369. Candy says:

    Abms-Poppa FOD is looking a little Jesus like in that photo…or is it hippy like.

  370. Tracy says:

    I absolutley love True colors so far. Can’t wait to here the whole thing and Angel and Beautiful and Everybody hurts. God I cant wait to here them all. I am really trying to like Broken but I need to hear the whole thing, its growing on me. Not sure sure if I share that here though,….lol

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

    alana, little brothers, gotta love em’, but……lol, I guess you gotta let him have computer time too, but this is David we’re talking about,lol. You’re welcome, have a good night :grin:

    ksf, yeah, will be interesting to see if its in the Target ad!

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

    Tracy – I know what you mean but…share it anyway, lol. I’m excited to hear all of them but especially Bridge Over Troubled Water, which is a surprise to me. I didn’t think I would like it when I first heard that it was on the album but the 30-second snippet was just incredible. Also, can’t wait to hear Don’t Give Up since its a duet.

  373. kimk says:

    woo hoo!!!!!!

    Archies Rock Ology is WW TT!!!

  374. kimk says:

    Richard!!!

  375. kimk says:

    Candy lol I called him a mountain man.
    also hoped that meant David could go hippie too
    later on.
    maybe even Johnny Depp or John Mayer..

    kinda sexy there Richard.

  376. Tracy says:

    OMG that note that he holds in BOTW is out of this world, no-body does runs like him.
    Popa Fod =ReJesus….lol

  377. Candy says:

    kimk-oh David as Johnny Depp…yep, I could handle that.
    Richard looks great, slimmer, younger.

  378. kimk says:

    everyone has their own opinions.. if you think about it David has fans from 2 to 102 so there will be all kind of thoughts, ideas and feelings.
    makes things fun and def not boring!

  379. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Well we trended Worldwide and in cities. Just saw WWt of Jessica Sanchez Ology in Philippines. Do we get points for all the cities plus WWT or what. Does anyone know. David isn’t WWtrending anymore. We held it for about an hour. :grin: :grin:

  380. kimk says:

    just as long as folks go about it decently no issue.. sometimes that does not happen.
    which makes it even more ha interesting.

  381. angelbymyside says:

    Tracy ~ Do you have the CD???

  382. kimk says:

    Candy yup he sure does.
    oh and David growing into his manhood.. be still my spazz!!!

  383. Tracy says:

    Abms-No I am still waiting….are you one of the lucky ones to recieve yours today?

  384. angelbymyside says:

    it’s just like a family….you sometimes have disagreements but then you make up! :D

  385. kimk says:

    going to look up the Sunday paper tomorrow for the ads!!!!

    hope David and BEGIN is in at least one!!

  386. angelbymyside says:

    Tracy ~ unfortunately I am CDless. Sure hope it arrives on Tuesday!

  387. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Yipes. Pardon me. Just came from Twitter Archies Rock Ology is still WWTrending. BBL Have to tweet more

  388. kimk says:

    Archies Rock Ology is WW TT Again!!!!!

  389. kimk says:

    sgj did before too for a while!!! :D

  390. tami lyn says:

    angel- so true :) i love everyone here! :)

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    (((((HUGS))))) To ALL David Fans,
    FOD is our home away from home
    (but I’m not doing the raking or shoveling &
    whoever is the mom & dad here, I figure I
    have about $960. in back allowance :lol:
    $5.00 a week, 4x a month, 12 x a year for
    4 years = $960. I take cash, credit cards or
    a check, with 2 forms of id of course :lol: )

  392. Tracy says:

    I will be the one waiting forever for the cd to come to the stores before I can get it, I unfortunatley couldnt preorder on line so I will suffer while you all listen and share. lol I’m a big girl, I can handle it. lol Hope I don’t have to wait to to long.

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

    Tracy – yeah that note was awesome! Once I hear the full version I may be a believer after all :)

  394. angelbymyside says:

    Tracy ~ sure hope the CD is in Target, Best Buy and Walmart! Have to get the Sunday paper tomorrow to check out the ads.

  395. CeeDee says:

    Angelbymyside, loved your comment at 7:35 pm!

    Nora, Beth–you are OKAY!

  396. kimk says:

    I guess if it is in writing.. he can’t take it back.

    hear that David.. no take backs!!!!

  397. kimk says:

    might be sticking my nose out but I think that is what Katie had in mind about the cover.. she is a fangirl after my heart. especially if you read her tweets.
    compare the biebs and D’s cover.
    ha I love it.. very similar.
    I am a fangirl.. proud and loud!!!!

  398. tami lyn says:

    the beibs cover? it’s similar? oh no, now i have to google that! lol

  399. nora says:

    Tracy-you will probably have the CD before us we pre ordered it, it will probably be in the stores first, I pre ordered mine from Dessert Books and haven’t received E-mail that it has been shipped or when it will be shipped, order says still processing. Good luck

  400. tami lyn says:

    oh what does that mean?? justin is looking to the right and david is looking to the left. does that mean they are opposite? could it actually mean something?

  401. kimk says:

    tamilyn yup says Believe and a head shot. sideways I think. brown?
    Davids is nicer.
    ha of course!!!

  402. Tracy says:

    CeeDeee- that is what I will do.
    Im sorry but David’s picture looks nothing like the Beibs cover.

  403. angelbymyside says:

    Biebs cover??? Do I want to see this??? haha

  404. kimk says:

    tamilyn get em in the door.. hook em up and they will never leave!!!!

  405. tami lyn says:

    wow that’s weird how similar they are, same serious head shot looking off to the side, both start with the letter B. of course i like david’s better cuz i love him :)

  406. kimk says:

    angel lol his cover is pretty much normal-ish.
    just that it is similar.
    coincidence? lol you read Katie’s tweets. you betcha she saw that cover.
    all I know is I love Davids cover. she did the inside too.
    love her fangirlery!!!!

  407. tami lyn says:

    could that possibly be intentional?

  408. Tracy says:

    Nora- I hope so. The last time with TOSOD it didnt even make it to store where I am. I had to have it gifted to me. I am praying things go more smoothly with this cd, get more promo and sell more, that is one of the reasons I went on about the look of the picture.
    Most of you will say “who buys a cd just because of the picture”? Well if im being honest a lot of people that are not already fans will.
    Thats all I’ll say about that.

  409. kimk says:

    Tracy head shot, to the side, start with B, both cute guys.
    yes there are differences too.

  410. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all,

    Thank you for the new post Joanie and thank you for including my vid in here too I’m honor and suprise hehe.

    Stop by to see how’s my extended family’s doing :) , haven’t read the post nor comments yet …will work from the bottom up but saw that you all really worked hard on wwtt…you guys rawkkk, David has the best fans<3

  411. angelbymyside says:

    Kimk ~ but Katie didn’t take the pic for the CD…she just designed the colors and lettering!

  412. kimk says:

    tamilyn my feelings would be to get the youngens to notice. from what I saw around most all liked it.

  413. tami lyn says:

    wonder who designed justin’s cover?

  414. kimk says:

    angel think she chose the pic no? think she colored it too? not sure.
    just throwing that out there as a possibility as when I saw the beavs cd cover I said oh!

  415. kimk says:

    tamilyn no clue but sure it was someone who made a ton of moola for it.

  416. angelbymyside says:

    Tracy ~ I honestly have never purchased a CD because of the picture on the cover…that is so secondary to me. Maybe people do…don’t know why though.

  417. kimk says:

    tamilyn you see his latest vid. not too bad all in all.
    not anything like David would do but that’s ok too.
    David is unique.

  418. angelbymyside says:

    Kimk ~ Don’t know if she chose the pic or it was decided for her

  419. kimk says:

    pocoelsy aren’t David fans the best!!! love reading all the tweets. so much love for him!!

  420. tami lyn says:

    kim- justin’s latest vid? no. what’s it called?

  421. Tracy says:

    Kimk- I understand the similarities,…..i like the lighting used on the biebs.

  422. kimk says:

    angel think I read David saw a few of the pics considered? kari answered something about it but forget. interesting huh all this.

  423. kimk says:

    I felt it was like an Elvis cover too.

  424. angelbymyside says:

    I am seeing “thank you” spoilers from the CD on Twitter now. WILL NOT READ!!! :)

  425. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol bet you would like it. he gets beat up and he makes out with a girl. and dances. as long as you love me?

  426. kimk says:

    angel yup. David is the new Olympics.

  427. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight everyone. Did twitter and Ology now it’s beddie by time. Take care all. See you tomorrow. We are the best fans. ((((hugs))))

  428. Tracy says:

    That picture of David kneeling and looking down, that was send with the braclets……now that picture he sure does look like Elvis.

  429. tami lyn says:

    kim- thanks gonna go look on YT. can u imagine how we all would be freaking out if david did a video like that??! lol

  430. kimk says:

    tamilyn go watch it and heck yeah I would flip out!!

  431. tami lyn says:

    kim- omg (11 million views in 2 days!) apparently that’s what teenagers can relate to. :( they are so intense and emotional. if david did a video like that we would all be screaming and crying! lol

  432. Tracy says:

    I like that cover of the biebs and I think his video is cute. He has grown up to be a real cutie, I think he is starting to show his spoiled side though.

  433. angelbymyside says:

    TOO FUNNY!!!!! :lol:

    @RyanMoran:
    When you ask a girl on a date, and she replies with a @DavidArchie lyric, you know it’s going to be a good date. #archiemagic

  434. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol whateven. the vid is not bad they sunk money into it and it isn’t like the last one. oldtime vibe. yup what kids want or just mainstreamers.

  435. nora says:

    goodnight everybody sleep tight be back tomorrow, Just have to say I’m glad David is David, and wish the Bieb all the luck in his career. Glad to be an Archuleta fan!!!

  436. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk, and the best part is we are one of them hehe :) .

    See that some of us got their copies already !! I’m so jealous and happy for you all at the same time, I have to wait for mine a little bit longer sigh….can’t wait to hear Ture colors BOTW Angle…all of them!!! Has anyone checked in at Archuhospital yet lol.

    Are we going to do the buying party on Itunes, if yes then aroung what time is the best time?

  437. kimk says:

    Tracy I saw that going on.. too much too soon.
    love David how he handles things. almost like whenever things heat up he chills out.
    pretty cool.
    just another reason why I admire him.
    it is we all know he could have it all (meaning beaver fame) but he chooses
    not to.
    pretty great way I see it and most likely sets him up for a long and fruitful career.

  438. kimk says:

    Tracy true that kneeling pic. my guess another cd? EP? has to be something.

  439. angelbymyside says:

    Oh well….tried to stay “spoiler free” from the CD “thank you’s” but it’s impossible on Twitter! Just like the Olympic results!

    Good night everyone! :D

  440. tami lyn says:

    goodnight you guys :) i will leave u with this strange happening. last night(like every night) i went to bed hoping to dream of david but who do u think i dreamt about instead?? pat monahan from the band Train! lol, what the heck?! it was very nice(lol) but it wasn’t david. maybe i will have better luck tonight :) sweet dreams

  441. Bobanna says:

    Congrats to all our FOD familia that received Begin. early. Lucky!!!! I had a feeling Amazon would be late. :-( I called my target today and they said they don’t have it listed on their new release list. The rep. said we don’t always want to order all the CDs listed so we don’t. Well…(wrong answer, lol) I said: It shouldn’t be up to you or your coworkers, but the stores. You are suppose to accomodate your customers, and this customer would have purchased 7 CD’s. Not a problem, I’ll take my business elsewhere. Oh my!!! Hahahaha He probably thought I was a nut! Then I called 2 Best Buys and neither of them know if they will have them in the! store on the 7th. Not a good day!!!! AMAZON…Hurry!

  442. CeeDee says:

    I saw an awesome commercial during the Olympics today – there is “no destination without a beginning”. It reminded me of BEGIN.

  443. Ali says:

    I’m so unsure about this Ology thing now guys. So many fans are focusing just on trending stuff about ology now when we could be focusing on promoting the new album and Ology is the one getting the free promo.

    I was just looking at Lauren’s page to see how they were approaching this whole trending thing and saw fans saying that she’s lost over 1,000 followers in the past few days because she’s been RTing and tweeting so much about the Ology thing to get points. I don’t follow Lauren so I have no idea if this is true but I don’t see why her fans would make that up. Obviously I know that David (or Kari, in his place) have not been tweeting like that but I was just showing how Ology has entire fanbases focusing on the wrong thing and annoying people rather than drawing them in. I can’t imagine seeing 20-some Jessica trends made people big fans either. Remember what its like to see constant Bieber trends?

    I just feel like we’d be better off if we laid off the Ology trending and focused on one or two big, meaningful trends next week when the album comes out. I have no problem with the posting and commenting AT ology. But bringing it over to twitter like ology wants us to do and the volume they are looking for I think is bad for David right now.

    That’s just my opinion though and obviously I don’t have any big influence lol. Just something for us to be thinking about.

  444. Ali says:

    Edit: In my post above, I meant to say Lauren had lost over 1,000 TWITTER followers. Left out the word twitter lol.

    If that’s true and I was her manager, I would seriously tell her to stop. I realize that twitter followers don’t dictate album sales but the more people that follow you, the greater the ~potential~ of getting info out about your career. I think twitter followers are way more important than some fan contest.

  445. Joanie/suttygal says:

    Hi all! Just finished reading down through the comments and I wanted to say thanks to everyone for not posting specific pics, parts, or pieces of the BEGIN. album liner notes or photos here in comments. I know there are some who received the cd early (LUCKY) but who are also posting segments straight from the notes on twitter etc.
    Here, we’d like to keep in the same mind frame of “respect” and guidelines when dealing with the BEGIN. album info before it’s formally released on the 7th as we do with missionary pics etc. We will allow a link with a *BEGIN. spoiler alert* attached, if you must, but please don’t share more than that. It’s just a way to hopefully give all fans that “special moment” of experiencing the album for the first time, in their own space and on their own terms. :) Thank you all so much! ♥

  446. Ali says:

    Thanks Joanie! So excited to get mine. I ordered from Sears too but haven’t gotten it yet. Got my fingers crossed for Monday :)
    If all else fails, I’ll get it from iTunes at midnight Monday but I really am excited to get the physical album in my hands.

  447. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I won’t share it here, because I have the bad luck of people getting mad at me for sharing things before they come to them. The letter David wrote that is with the CD is just beautiful, especially the first and last paragraph. I bawled! Tear-stained glasses! So, here’s the link to Fanscene where Cathy (or Janey?) has shared it:
    http://archuletafanscene.com/2012/08/04/david-archuletas-begin-thank-yous/
    If you want to wait to read it when it comes to you, don’t read it. Simple as that, don’t click.
    But, I have more respect and adore him more after reading the letter than I did even before. I didn’t think it was possible. God bless him!

  448. blue says:

    his thank yous are so so sweet.

  449. Ali- some of us are including promoting Begin when we trend for Ology. but i hear where your coming from.

  450. I can hardly wait till i get mine. Hopefully Monday. I ordered from Deseret, Walmart. Sears and Itunes. I got confirmation from Walmart that it was MAILED aUG 3.

  451. Betty says:

    sarahhazel 12:15 thanks for the link to the Women’s conference. I was there that day and what a thrill. He was “growing” right before our eyes as he challenged himself to do something hard.

  452. kimk says:

    ★SkyGirl★ ‏@LisaMurray
    Okay… The new David Archuleta @DavidArchie cd, “Begin” is available NOW for preorder on iTunes (releases Aug 7)

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/preorder/begin./id548446552

  453. kimk says:

    good morning folks.. going to get myself out the door and get myself a Sunday paper!
    want to see if his gorgeousness is in any of the ads!!! :)

  454. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    GoodMorning all ~no secret I spend most of my time over at Twitter these days. However, I always stop by & check out FOD as often as I can. After reading some of the comments from last night’s thread, I can’t NOT share my thoughts before I start my day. This is a very exciting time for David and his fans. David worked tirelessly the few weeks he had at home just so he wouldn’t leave us “empty handed” as he stated in interviews as well as the liner notes within the CD. I am so dang impressed with this young man’s desire to be all that we want him to be..no words can express my feelings. Who in the world would put such emphasis on a picture at this juncture of his journey. I just have to ask myself that question… *scratches head* ~I would just love, for once, to enjoy another a stellar moment in David’s career without reading stuff that is trivial & meaningless. Some spoke of freedom of speech & speaking one’s mind ~guess I just did.

    It’s my sincere hope that his dedicated fanbase can all gather together in the next few days & honor him for the heart & soul he put into this incredible CD at a time in his life when he had so much on his plate. Who does this I ask you…David Archuleta..that’s who. Gosh, I’m so proud to be his fan all these years.

    Wishing you all a glorious Silent Sunday ♥

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

    Good morning. Sorry for using the word bloated in my comments yesterday. Although it was not my intention, it was harsh and I could have expressed my thoughts differently. I still think his face looks puffy in the pic though so perhaps that is a better adjective to use. :) And yet…why do I think that the reaction would have been exactly the same regardless…?

    Janel – thanks for posting the link to the liner notes. While I will never agree with the why of his decision and will continue to pray for him, I certainly admire his sincerity and his gratitude. He wants so desperately for people to understand his decision and it shows just how he doesn’t take his fans for granted. Ironically, we desperately want him
    to understand that he is loved not only as an artist but for the person he is. I think it’s a wonderful relationship and I’m excited to see how it continues in 2014 and beyond.

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

    NorthCarolinaGirl – EVERYONE is proud of David and BEGIN. and I don’t recall anyone saying otherwise. Thanks for your thoughts. :)

  459. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    “Gosh, I’m so proud to be his fan all these years”. <— expressing my OWN feelings..
    has nothing to do with what others feel so please, I ask you ~ don't put words in my mouth. Thanks :)

  460. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    last comment was replying to ksf who I do not know.

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

    NorthCarolinaGirl – I don’t believe I did. You expressed your thoughts beautifully. I was expressing that, along with you, we all are proud of him and appreciate his heart in giving this gift to us. Disagreeing about the cover pic does not change that fact.

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

    I don’t know you either but what does it matter? Have a wonderful day! :)

  463. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    ksf ~the only thing that matters to me is the “here & now”… David’s GIFT to us!
    once again, speaking for myself. Thread has changed..thank goodness so let’s just move on. :) & Good day to you too.
