Quote Appreciation

Although she’s no longer with us, I often look to Mother Teresa’s  wisdom in quotes and loving, serving example~ Happy Birthday Mother Teresa! Today in celebration of great quotes, I’ll post 2 more from others that came across twitter today from @Kariontour and from @aisim . Thank you lovely ladies for thes wonderful quotes (pearls of wisdom)! :)

Monday BEGIN. Buzz

Love the buzz! Keep it coming!  And Thanks Martha for sending the quickly captured buzz our way!! :)

Nice posting! Click below  to leave a comment. :)

This review is a little “mixed” but some nice commentary nonetheless.

” the “American Idol” runner-up from 2008 makes a noble go of it. “Begin” is tasteful, dignified and understated, and Archuleta pulls off some surprises with his silky, sweet vocals.

He casts an aural glow of sincerity on Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful,” a graciously not-overdone version that resonates when he sings, “You are beautiful, no matter what they say.” He also delivers a deft take on Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,”…. CLICK HERE to read the entire review and to comment.

This is a very nice article (WOW)  on BEGIN. (Chinese). I copy and pasted the article into  GOOGLE TRANSLATE and was able to understand most of it I think.)

And Speaking of Everybody Hurts, @Kimak has  a  challenge for us!

    kimk–for crying emoticon: colon, then word “cry”, then another colon

  6. Candy says:

    Give Ray a break…he is almost 80 years young, I hope and pray I am not only still breathing at his age but can also still type! Im happy he comes here, loves and supports David and puts up with all of us!

  7. sarahhazel says:

    Giving Ray virtual (((hugs))) too.

  8. Candy says:

    Honestly, this finger pointing, name calling stuff is getting old. If when David return and finds he has no fans…look around the room and ask yourself if you could have been the cause!!

  9. kimk says:

    Joanie wow.. fabulous top pic!! thank you!
    ha I see me!!
    just checked we have about 26,000 more views to go.. we can do it guys!!
    http://youtu.be/-UrNy_YtMUo

    not sure what time it will premiere on MYX Wed. but it helps with views when it is on the countdown so vote if you can!
    going to venture a guess it will be Wed. morn EST?

    another thing about the EH vid I love to watch is him wipe his mouth in the beginning?
    lol I know.. think I have seen too many DA vids!

    sarahhazel :cry:

  10. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–good job….looks like I’m crying LOL

  11. kimk says:

    I love ray.. he is so funny I can’t stand it!!

  12. ksf says:

    Lol. The last thread was like a battle field…but that’s ok…keeps things interesting. I’m sorry if your feelings were hurt Ray.

  13. kimk says:

    ok so please tell me I am not the only one who noticed the hand wiping the mouth thing.
    dang where is FG I miss her!!

  14. Grace says:

    I agree. We need more fans like Ray. Faithful and always supports David no matter what.

    test.
    :cry:

  15. ksf says:

    Candy – people would actually stop listening to David because of something said on a fan site?

  16. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Only been 20 days since BEGIN. came out and we are back at it. Wow

    * goes to clean toliets with Candy*

    Oh, and BTW, yes, I have been here since day one and will always be here, but don’t have to get in all the discussions.

  17. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – haha! I remember that interview. Hilarious! :lol:

  18. sarahhazel says:

    LOL…I think I need this too for today!

  19. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–he really looked good in that interview….like really good….hehe…..

  20. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    kimak: you mean the .14 marker? Oh no..hadn’t really noticed! lolol :wink:

  21. kimk says:

    Marylee rofl.. remember the days when we would dissect every little morsel of each video and pic!?

  22. mango#DA2014 says:

    I agree, bds (from last thread). It all comes with the territory. As far as I can see, David’s family has done everything they could to support his singing talent and move him forward in order to succeed ……lessons, getting him here and there to perform, trying out for stuff, etc. Now that he is successful and well-known I doubt they would want to do anything to discourage that success. What mother would take offense to someone telling her that they loved her son’s new music just because they were at church??? No harm done in my opinion. But, my main irritation is when someone tells us all how to behave because that is how they think we should behave. David is a celebrity and will have to live with all of the fan curiosity……or give it all up. It is my opinion that he does not want to give it up…..just my opinion, though.

  23. ksf says:

    kimk – in response to your last comment to me on the last thread — the Obama comment was at 11:24am and was regarding his religion. It was really offensive given that he’s clearly stated what his beliefs are. Kind of like the whole birther thing. :(

  24. breanne says:

    @WISE_RADIO’s takes tweeted requests several times a day. Follow them on twitter & when they are taking requests be sure to tweet them your requests for up to 2 songs per tweet. They are playing songs from all of his albums!! On Fridays they say who the Top 10 Requested Artists of the Week are. David is always in the Top 10 but has only been the #1 artist once.

  25. mango#DA2014 says:

    ksf, I don’t understand why some people want to hang on to the birther thing. Seems almost comical, if it wasn’t so weird and destructive.

  26. kimk says:

    ksf I didn’t see it. I voted for him last time if it helps any just feel I need to change things right now and what I said about kind of being around Romney/MA for a couple of years. now where religion is concerned doesn’t matter to me it is the person and who they are and what they do that matters.

  27. mango#DA2014 says:

    meant….birther/religion thing

  28. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    kimak/1:57 p.m. ~do I remember them?! you bet I do!…FUN times…sitting up every night waiting on vids to show up after a show ~ same songs but every night had something to keep us commenting into the wee hours! LOL

  29. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Joanie for the awesome Monday post.

  30. NorthCarolinaGirl♥Marylee says:

    heading out again…time to make a meatloaf..toss in some baked potatoes….
    ~easy/peasy :)

  31. ksf says:

    mango – it is totally comical and PATHETIC. What bothers me most though is the level of hatred and disrespect people have shown and it’s not JUST about politics or the economy, even though no one will admit it. There seems to be an underlying hatred for him as a human being. The nasty things that have been said to and about him were not said to those who came before him, even though politics has always been a pretty dirty game.

    kimk – its not about voting for him or not, everyone has that right. It’s making trifling statements that are obviously false. I, personally, don’t care about his religion either but why say things that you clearly are not true.

  32. ksf says:

    clearly know are not true, I meant

  33. kimk says:

    Jenny Ray ‏@GoldenHair4
    Ok, seriously, I’m buying a David Archuleta album when I get home. That boy can sing.

  34. kimk says:

    Marylee got me a huge pot roast going on.. kind of started late. wonder why!!?

  35. Janel aka Nellie says:

    ksf I’ll say this then stop posting because I have onimous toilets to clean. I sincerely thought Obama was Muslim and if you read what I said it was not a dig at anyone’s religion. I was simply stating no matter the president, they never preached their religion to the American people. I don’t really care what religion Obama is or anyone else’s when it comes to voting for them or who I want to lead our country. Sorry if what I said offended. I’m gone.

  36. ksf says:

    Thanks Janel. I apologize if I misunderstood.

  37. ksf says:

    I still just have a hard time believing that anyone actually believes he’s Muslim because anytime its said it’s always meant to be viewed in a negative, derogatory way.

  38. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Nope, honestly thought he was. But, I don’t keep up on politics or the news much so that’s why I really don’t know. In fact don’t know the religion of most the presidents we ever had. Truthfully I didn’t know if I’d vote for Romney or not up until a few weeks ago. If I voted locally for everyone who was Mormon, that wouldn’t work because they mostly all are. LOL.

  39. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone!

    I LOVE Ray, he’s a sweetie & so funny :grin: I love your comments ray, I know exactly what you’re saying :grin:

    Love all of you guys, but, for gosh sakes, start talking about chocolate, cheesecake, pad thai, ice cream, sharing recipes, oh yeah & talk about all of the great things David left us, this is FOOD, er, ummm, hmmm, I mean FOD :lol: TTYL!

  40. LCT #DA2014 says:

    Ksf I like the point you made about the level of hate and disrespect and the underlying hatred toward a human being – I feel David has fallen into a similar situation. So if we don’t appreciate these sentiments toward David then we should not condone these sentiments toward others. JMO.

  41. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Hey Beth guess what????

  42. blue says:

    i hate politics.

  43. ksf says:

    Janel – Lol :)

    LCT – very true

  44. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    Something tells me I don’t want to know what I missed over the weekend. Correct me if I’m wrong, though.
    I never talk politics online so no worries about any views on that subject coming from me.

  45. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–please don’t stop posting here. :(

  48. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, wasn’t going to stop posting all together, was just about done with beating the dead horse of arguing over things that are futile. My post on the other thread was misread and misconstrued into something it wasn’t. I don’t hate Obama or anyone. There is only one person ever in my life I have ever hated and I forgave them and moved on with my life. I was being accused of hate speak so had to say what I meant because of the misunderstanding. I’m with Beth, let’s talk about Fo(o)d. Or gee, David and his beautiful voice and his music. There’s a thought.

  49. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL, that was supposed to say Food. Or FOD food.

  50. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–oh, that’s GOOD!….and yes, I’d like to stick talking about David, his beautiful voice, music and character….and some harmless silliness on the side… :lol:

  51. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth, lol. ok,
    Actually I want any conversation to go on, as long as it keeps his name out there and it is constructive. Sometimes (without David here to spazz over) the conversation gets a bit heated, but it’s ok because I love to see lots of comments in all of David’s fansites. It’s when everyone stops commenting that his career might be in trouble, because no one cares about him. Imo, that will NEVER happen!

  52. sarahhazel says:

    P.S…..plus the waiting is difficult enough…LOL

  53. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Guess what everyone….David loves Thai food!! Just saying!

  54. Janel aka Nellie says:

    This weeks idea of what to do while David is gone.
    Week 20; Aug 27-Sept 2: Back to school week. Remember when David read “Oh the Places You Will Go” to that class of elementary school kids? Donate and/or volunteer to read some Dr. Seuss books to a local school, pre-school, day care or children’s library.

  55. kimk says:

    jj I love that link!!!
    every face is sheer perfection!

    blue like religion.. touchy subject.
    will be happy when the election is over
    just by what is going on in my own house.
    so many different viewpoints.. lead to fireworks!

  56. kimk says:

    Janel lol.. bet anything first thing when he gets back he may want to go on many restaurant food runs!!

  57. sarahhazel says:

    I’m going to that Simply Thai restaurant if I ever pass by Sandy, UT. I love, love, love Thai food!!!
    Anybody know if they play David’s music there?

  58. sarahhazel says:

    Hope so!!!

    sarahhazel – wow…just goes to show how fast two years can fly by! :)

  65. ray says:

    thanks all for the kine words.just a thought did you ever think off the sleepless nights david might have had after he made his decision to go on a mission,how was he going to tell his fans .who he just appreacted so much.will,they be mad,will they support me ,i don,t want to hurt them,just think of all that went thru his mined.gotto love the boy.

  66. sarahhazel says:

    ray–Glad you’re back!….I agree, that must have been a very, very tough decision for him to make….and really took him a while to finally make it.

  67. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–sure does!…and that’s good! :)

  68. sarahhazel says:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @geomakk @kimak @DavidArchie what is your favorite song to see him sing if you had to just pick one?

    From the BEGIN. album? My answer is PRIDE….cuz I’d love for him to rock that stage!

  69. bychance says:

    Since Beth is obviously sparing no expense for her fellow Archies at the newly expanded and beautiful Archuhospital, I think we should all head over there and chill for a while. I can attest that the Broken wing has done wonders for me.

  70. Charlotte says:

    Ray, ITA about the mission being a hard decision. I don’t even want know how many nights he lay awake thinking about it.
    I just hope, in the end, it will have been as fulfilling as he hoped it would be.

  71. Charlotte says:

    bychance, I’m with you :)

  72. kimk says:

    eeeek!!!
    this means there may be VIDEOS!!!!!!!!!

    I love kari!!!!

  73. bychance says:

    Can I just say how much I love BEGIN.? LOVE LOVE LOVE! I want to hear them all live. Heck, I want to hear anything live! (Told my husband yesterday to just plan on the fact that when David gets home, I am going to a concert….wherever it is! He just smiled and said OK.)

  74. The song i would love for David to open up a concert with is PRIDE. I love all of them, but PRIDE would be a great opener.

  75. kimk says:

    74,919 views for Everybody Hurts!! :D
    that is about 6000 since this morning.. we can do it guys!
    only about 25000 to go!!!

  77. kimk says:

    bychance all the songs are lovely.. amazing! would love seeing him sing any of them!
    I love the idea that there just may be some videos out there in which to see!
    wasn’t all that sure!!!

    Linda Pride is great too.. did you tweet her that? others did too I think!
    can’t wait to see that live in concert!!

  78. Kimk, i will tweet her right now. I have EH MV on repeat for more views and i love it more and more everytime i hear it. I love all the songs on the BEGIN album. would love more videos but won’t get my hopes up.

  79. kimk says:

    Linda I like EH and have no problem with it on repeat.
    if EH hits high on MYX it helps get his voice and music out there more so need to get the word to vote vote vote!!

  80. bychance says:

    kimk- more videos would be wonderful!….maybe down the road, huh? I want them to stretch out whatever they have to last another 18 months or so! (ah, that sounds good to say instead of two years!)

  81. MunkFOD says:

    Ray! Haven’t commented much but love your question! David and sleepless nights… makes perfect sense when you consider the tears of relief when he received such support at the announcement. He has given us so much! I, for one, will always always always support him! May not post much but that doesn’t mean I’m not here! I am always here! Love the EH video! I like the thought of people starting a new chapter in their life and how it can be hard and hurt sometimes. Another video? Love that idea!!! Anything will do just fine! Keep thinking how awesome it would be to hear Pride live! The crowd singing their lungs out and jumping like crazy!

  82. bychance says:

    Charlotte – :)

  83. sarahhazel says:

    by chance–A “Chill Room” would be a nice addition to the hospital! Sign me up! :)

  84. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Wowza on that pic!

  85. kimk says:

    bychance I agree about that to stretch it out.. usually just ask to see if there is such a thing and it seems that there are. I
    pretty excited really to know there are some out there!

  86. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–OMJ….you think there’ll be more MVs for BEGIN.???….but won’t mind waiting a bit….don’t wanna run out of goodies before 2014!

  87. sarahhazel says:

    I have to put the EH MV on repeat without my headphones cuz I think my eardrums are already complaining already……….****100,000 views FTW!!!***

  88. bychance says:

    sarahazel – yeah…..Beth what do you think?

    MunkFOD – I sure love what you said -thanks!

    Wish I had all night to chat, but real life calls. Have a good evening everyone!

  89. Charlotte says:

    Sarahhazel, that pic is right on. He is our superman :)

  90. kimk says:

    EEEK!!!! :shock:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @MrsMaryfromNC @kimak @NancyFOD @Maureen_abms @Marylee_DA2014 what about a 3 or 4 day cruise with a performance or 2?

  91. kimk says:

    we were throwing the kitchen sink at Kari.. and she just tweeted that.
    rofl she gonna kill us!

  92. sarahhazel says:

    ROFL….not gonna take Kari seriously on that one!!! :lol:

  93. Charlotte says:

    Can’t say I like the cruise idea, because I’ll never be able to go. I barely have money for concerts alone.

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

    Hello Everyone! This is the tweet I sent Kari(very selfish, I dont fly, unless its with one of my fine feathered friends :grin: )

    @kariontour, How bt a cruise on a MN lake, we have like a billion of them lol. Make it two weeks, 10 songs a night frm D, Sound Good? :)))

  95. Anita says:

    While I’ve been watching David’s video for EH, something hit me. Because the video focuses on people starting new chapters in their lives, I’m thinking this is a message to us from him! It makes so much sense to me now that he chose to make a video for this song. David knows we miss him, but is asking us to “hold on” and that we’re “not alone”. He told us in a tweet a while back that we are in his heart. In turn , I’m sure it hasn’t been easy for David walking away from family, friends, fans, etc. for 2 years either. I’m seeing “Everybody Hurts” in a different light now. This proves once again that David is such an incredible and sensitive person!

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

    Hey Anita! I agree. To be honest, I did think thats part of what David intended with the song. For us to hang on until he gets back, but to also hang in there when things get tough in our own lives. We all have bumps in the road, big bumps, but Davids music smooths out the ride a bit :grin:

  97. Anita says:

    Beth-It just hit me like a ton of bricks last week. David gives us all a very heartfelt message in this song, and it just blows me away!! He certainly was very thoughtful in his song choices, and I totally get why a MV for EH was made instead of “Broken”. But who knows, maybe David recorded a MV for “Broken” before he left as well!

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

    Anita, I know what you mean. I dont want to be greedy, but if there is another vid or two out there, I wont complain :grin:

  99. Charlotte says:

    Wow, Sarahhazel, that’s awesome that it’s staying up there :)

  100. sarahhazel says:

    #22 A/C, #28 Vocal Pop in Amazon Music

  101. sarahhazel says:

    Charlotte–it’s hanging in there…..btw, anybody know what its current ranking on iTunes?

  102. josie says:

    So this has been an interesting day, I see. lol. Has anyone heard from Shanny lately? She wasn’t even around when the EH video came out. Not that I’m worried, but…

  103. kimk says:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @dangitdavid @MrsMaryfromNC @kimak @NancyFOD @Maureen_abms @Marylee_DA2014 throwing out ideas like you guys!

    we were throwing out all sorts of ideas..
    like a 2 day concert in Nashville, Hawaii, etc and the cruise thing came up.
    what is great is that the wheels are already turning for 2014!!!! :)
    exciting!!

  104. kimk says:

    sarahhazel why not.. a cruise sounds fun!!
    lol my guess we would have to sign waivers not to bother the lad.
    ha wonder if he will do any jogging and P90X.
    my guess the track and exercise rooms might be the busiest places on the ship.
    and the concert hall and ALL the restaurants!

  105. josie says:

    Ray- If you’re here, I was going to say a few things. (1) Did you say in the last thread that you WERE successful in life? Um..as long as you’re alive, you’re still successful, you know. :) (2) I hope you know that you’re valuable regardless of how much education you have. Being educated is not the same thing as being smart. (3) Candy mentioned that you are a little bit older than some. If that’s true, I think it’s so neat that you come to post on sites, and I think you deserve an award. haha. (4) I agree with your last post. I think a lot about how hard this must’ve been for him. :(

  110. Martha says:

    sarahhazel – BEGIN. is #146 Pop Album on Itunes. The highest I saw it get was #69 last week.

  111. kimk says:

    Beth how about somewhere inside no weather issues?

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

    kimk, It can be indoors, just thinking about how things were for Woodstock, but hmmm, maybe indoors would be better :grin: The Metrodome Roof has been fixed, we could have it there :grin: Hmmmm, better places than that I’m sure :roll:

  113. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi everyone. Joanie great post. Loved the top picture of Mr. Archuleta. oved all your comments on where we can see David perform when he returns. A lot of people saying they would go to the first concert wherever he is. That would be awesome if all his fans showed up to his first return concert. I’m starting to feel that I would want to be there on the first homecoming concert. Going to start saving now. Now I have to go tell Mr.SGJ that we’re going!

  114. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–Archustock sounds really groovy!

  115. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–thanks for the numbers….not bad! :)

    Hey supergrand!

  121. sarahhazel says:

    kimk– :cry: :( :cry: :(

  122. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–no dancing on the mud I hope :lol:

  123. Checking in to find fans talking about an Archuleta cruise, Archustock and concerts in Nashville! SOUNDS GOOD TO ME…ALL of them! lol If only we knew what the future has in store for us when David gets back?!

    sarahhazel…Thinks for posting the info on how BEGIN. is charting! Like seeing it still doing well!

  125. kimk says:

    sarahhazel :cry:

  126. kimk says:

    Beth hmm for me at least 10 hours but that’s ok have a feeling it is a pretty drive!

  127. Russ says:

    Hello everyone.
    If you ever heard the phrase “old softy”, that’s me. I get kinda teary eyed every time I watch the video for BEGIN. If I watch it anymore tonight I will probably be a “blubbering idiot”. It is so good I can’t help but to replay it over and over.

  128. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–what about that Irish girl who fronted his 1st tour….I forgot her name….

    Others: McFly (with the pizza delivery man), Kate Cabebe (she can do some drumming with the band)……it’s gonna be like a tour buddies reunion!…..Also, We The Kings, Natasha Bedingfield,……

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

    sarahhazel, lol, well, if you dress like The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd, Plaid & moonboots, it wont be a problem :grin:

    kimk, I would love to see David & his brother Daniel, sing a duet, both playing the guitar :grin:

  130. sarahhazel says:

    Russ–me too….but keep repeating LOL…..we need 100,000 views by tomorrow!

  131. kimk says:

    lol that is a lot of repeating!!

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

    Hey Russ! I think you have plenty of company. Hmmm, I guess we need to add yet another wing to the Archuhospital, the Blubbering Idiot Wing. Maybe I can get Kleenex to sponser it :grin:

    kimk, hmmm, 10 hours, maybe Amtrak has a route from MN to Nashville :grin:

    Hey VaBeach!

  133. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–a lot crying/Kleenex too…..that’s why I put my headphones away!

  134. Russ says:

    I guess I should have said video for Everybody Hurts, not Begin. I think 100,00 will be achieved pretty quickly.

  135. tami lyn says:

    when i think about it almost seems like the last 4 years have been an online archuleta family reality show. alot of us were not only interested in david but his family too. we got to hear about what jeff was doing and see lupe and claudia singing and dancing and got to see jazzy and amber in vlogs and sometimes even heard about daniel. so it kinda is like his whole family has disappeared. i would be interested to know what jeff is doing now, and if lupe is still singing and if claudia enjoys being married and how school and stuff is going for jazzy, amber, and daniel. it was so much fun to kind of be part of their lives and now it’s all pretty much gone. it’s hard not to be sad.

  136. sarahhazel says:

    Speaker off too…..for now.

  137. Russ says:

    Hi Beth. Gonna need a lot of rooms in the Archuhospital.

  138. Martha says:

    Ali – are you around? Was wondering if you’ve seen the sales numbers for last week. Since the video came out on Wed., maybe sales were up over the previous week. On Hits Daily Double, David is not listed.

    http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi

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

    Russ, I think with all of the extra wings we’re adding, we’ll be ok. We do gotta take into account the EHEV Factor(Everybody Hurts Epic Video Factor) & re-evaluate the situation :roll: With the Rainbow vid coming at some point, well, thats a whole other kettle of fish. The Rainbow Room(isnt that a restaurant, hmmm, well, that fits :lol: ) where the “guests” at the Archuhospital can watch the Rainbow video as many times as they want, kind of like the never ending pasta bowl at Olive Garden :grin: )

    Ooooh, an update, rainguards will be available at the new Everybody Hurts Video – Cant stop watching Wing. The rainguards attach to your face & catch your tears(when full, just dump into the plants in your room, see, very eco-friendly) Also, 5 gallon buckets of chocolate candy, stategically placed throughout, because, when you cry, ALOT, you gotta have chocolate candy, its like a law or something :grin:

    Further updates to follow :lol:

  140. kimk says:

    tamilyn not sure the D team took into consideration the human factor about David. he was not only his music.

  141. Hello Beth! The Archuhospital sure is getting to be HUGE! A wing for each affirmity of ODD! lol

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

    VaBeach, thats for sure,lol, my fine feathered friends are out n’ about right now looking for more land, seeing as how, I think we need to expand :grin:

    Just listened to Broken & Pride, OH MY HECK, are they gorgeous songs or what???

  143. tami lyn says:

    kim~ exactly. it was so much more than that! it was like we were all on this huge exciting adventure together and it was so much fun!

  144. Russ says:

    Beth, you are so funny. How do you come up with this stuff?

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

    Russ, lol, Thanks, I run into alot of low overhangs & its taken its toll :lol:

  146. Ali says:

    Martha – He won’t be in HDD’s list. They only show the estimated top 50 and David will be lower than that. I haven’t spent tons of time looking at 3rd week numbers so I don’t really have a guess where he’ll be but he was at #138 overall last week. So you’ll want to look somewhere below that lol. The drop off is less steep the 3rd week but there’s generally still a drop off. Not sure if the EH video has enough exposure to make a large difference in sales numbers. That would be awesome if it did though! We’ll see Wednesday.
    Once he is no longer in the BB200 its much harder to get sales numbers.

  147. Russ says:

    Beth, your reply, see what i mean. lol

  148. Anita says:

    Beth-I certainly won’t complain either if there will be a “Broken” video. Perhaps it will turn out just as wonderfully as “Everybody Hurts”! I’m just over the moon about that video!!! It was so well made, soooo very thankful to David and all those who worked hard to make this video a reality for him! I’m still really soaking it in, so they can take thir time releasing “Broken”. We have plenty of time yet! I’m kind of surprised people are tweeting Kari asking about a “Broken” video. I’d rather she not tell us until just before it’s released.

  149. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth,@7;43 hahahahahahha!!!

  150. sarahhazel says:

    ❤Buy BEGIN.❤#DA2014 ‏@Shell_eeeyyy

    And next month @DavidArchie will be one fourth done with his MISSION!!!! Let the countdown REALLY BEGIN.!!!!! @Kariontour :)

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

    Russ :grin:

    Anita, I think the EH video was so good, both the visual & the vocals, that you cant help but want a video of each song(not expecting that, mind you) he’s so incredible, that you just want to hear him sing, see him sing. I dont know about people bugging kari already, she tweeted that, hey, EH just came out. But, I think its better than if no one was asking, wasnt excited about his music.

    Hey cq! :lol:

  152. sarahhazel says:

    Joni ‏@Jonerz

    Played @DavidArchie’s new CD “Begin” in the car with hubby this weekend. He said, “This really is a good album, his best one yet” *SCORE*

  153. mango#DA2014 says:

    My husband shushed me during David’s BOTW. He wanted to hear David. Not me.

  154. sarahhazel says:

    mango–well, I guess that’s good! LOL

  155. mango#DA2014 says:

    It was good, sarahhazel. Kind of made me laugh, though. My husband actually likes David and enjoys going to his concerts. And, for the most part, my husband is a country fan.

  156. Russ says:

    I think anyone that was not sure they liked David’s music before should listen to BEGIN. I think they will be sure with this album, and will say the same as the person in sarahhazel’s post, ” his best one yet”

  157. mango#DA2014 says:

    I guess I should say my husband likes country music 95%, then David, Andrea Bocelli, and Il Divo. Go figure.

  158. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    Hi Tami Lyn…..I miss hearing about David’s family too…and Beth I am ready for Archustock….rain or shine I will be there……I’ve been lurking the last day or so and I am so concerned about so many of you who think David is giving up music and doesn’t care about us anymore just because he hasn’t sent us a message via Kari in a while…THE MAN IS ON A MISSION…HE WILL BE BACK…..and I am sure he has more surprises for us over the course of the next year and a half…..Don’t sweat this one….Be thankful he has given us so so much already…..Miss Vicki

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Gotta few things to take care of around
    the house, so saying G’night a litte early.

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

    Miss Vicki :grin: Archustock, Groovy :cool:
    G’night!

  161. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    I sure do miss those video blogs….”Hi everyone….It’s David here”….GAH……Miss him so much. Can’t WAIT for his first video blog when he returns….Just think how mature he will look by then………Miss Vicki

  162. sarahhazel says:

    Miss Vicki–I like your “glass half full” outlook. :)

  163. sarahhazel says:

    Have a goodnight, Beth!

  164. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    Hey all…BTW….Myrtle Beach was sort of an prelude to Archustock….Didn’t it sprinkle a few raindrops that night….LOL….Miss Vicki

  165. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki.. I was at Myrtle Beach, I don’t recall sprinkles. It looked like it was going to pour but didn’t. Maybe you were sweating. I know I was. That was before David showed up. Later it was even more sizzling. :grin:

  166. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight everyone. Goodnight David. Take care

  167. Jhen says:

    Hello everyone! Just drop by for a few minutes, because it is office time, working time for me.
    Is it true Kari have plan for a cruise with performance? or just a wishful thinking or just joking? If it will come true, that could be super awesome! You guys have all the beautiful ideas for David.
    Can you survive David gaze? Well, if he is doing his gaze in front of you, you can’t survive lol, you will experience breathless, trance, numb, ecstatic and you end up bedazzled but it is a beautiful experience.

  168. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    Hey supergrandjudie….It did sprinke for a minute at Myrtle Beach…It was just a minute…LOL…Miss Vicki

  169. Jhen says:

    To be honest, I never felt David disconnected with his fans, because he leave us his 2 wonderful album, Begin. and Forevermore, even he don’t have much time to do it, since he was already preparing for his mission. Although I have to admit that I also terribly miss him, but thinking of those things that he did for his fans, I only can sincerely thank him. I’m sure David miss all his fans too.

  170. jazzy says:

    Jhen, I just want you know I always really enjoy your comments.

  171. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    Hey all….What’s up with this cruise with David in 2014……I’m in for it…I am actually looking for a cruise for the winter or early spring of 2014…..My son is graduating a semester early from VA Tech in December of 2013….For his celebration we are going to take him on a cruise that winter or spring……It would be so awesome if it is a David Cruise……(needless to say, I probably would keep it secret if it just happened to a David Archuleta Cruise….. Something for everyody right!!!!!!….Miss Vicki

  178. Jhen says:

    Jazzy- oh thank you, it’s always fun to share all our thought and feeling in FOD , FOD is a wonderful site for all David fans , we might not all agree about opinions just like in the last Thread, but it is to each his own, our individualism.

    Grannycrush,

    Don’t know if you are here tonight but just wanted to tell you I was a principal’s daughter also. Now my kids were a teacher’s and coaches kids. Hard to be yourself when people have these preconceived notions on who you are. I am a lurker and am here for the long haul. Never been a fan of anyone before. David just touched my heart and his voice got me hooked om AI and voting. Hello to you all. Love this site and all involved and posting. Thanks to all the moderators for everything you do for us. You are greatly appreciated.

  182. Miss Vicki, i loved what you said at 8:43. You gave me hope that i already had, but just need to reaffirm once in a while.

  183. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    Yes Linda Fr0m Cali……..David will be back BIG TIME……..Miss Vicki

  184. Miss Vicki DA# 2014 says:

    BTW…..David and I have something in common……He is also attracted to the eyes……The Windows of the Soul……So so romantic…..Miss Vicki

  185. Miss Vicki, so true, he is indeed an eye person.

  186. Martha says:

    Ali – Sorry, I had to leave for a while. Thanks for your answer. We shall see what the numbers are for this week.

  191. Kathy says:

    Maybe if you want lurkers to comment you should acknowledge them. I have posted before with no response from anyone. I aml lurking regardless and will continue. We buy presales also. Some of us are just not comfortable posting. Just letting you know I am here. David, is worth It. I think he is doing what he needs to do right now and I respect that. I also think he is not trying to be short term super star and is building his base. I am hoping for a Christmas song.

  192. mango#DA2014 says:

    Hi, Kathy. Doesn’t seem to be a lot of people here tonight. Maybe everyone is exhausted from the “eventful” day of comments. Nice to see you here.

  193. Kathy, Hi and welcome. I haven’t been comenting a lot today, busy day so i’m in and out. I like what you had to say about David. I believe it too.

  194. Kathy says:

    Thanks Mango,
    I understand that a lot of people are gone. Just giving a lurkers point of view. I hope many of us are addicts. FOD don’t go away. I would go through withdwaul.

  195. Candy says:

    This is beyond cute. Its a Missionary take on “Call me Maybe”

  196. Kathy, pastel assured ud yesterday that FOD would not be going away. I would be lost with out it.

  197. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I wasn’t around because I was on cleaning crew for our ward building earlier tonight then had a Girl Scout service unit team dinner with our GS Utah CEO. So, wasn’t ducking away from earlier.
    But listened to David on the way there and home. LOL

  198. Kathy says:

    Wirhdrawl. Not good with I pad. Not a good speller in general. Anyone from the Springfield, il area ?

  199. josie says:

    Kathy~ Hi from me, too. :) I’m hardly ever here this late, & just popped back in for a sec on my way out. Tks for letting us know you’re here. I love it when lurkers post (unless they’re calling me a name or somethin’. lol); it lets me know that more fans are around, & it helps to get different perspectives sometimes. See ya around. :)

  200. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey all….Just a note before going to bed….FOD isn’t going away……and Kathy, I agree, David is not gonna be a short term Super Star…Here is to building his fan base a little bit by a time…..He is destined to become the next Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson or somewhere inbetween…..Miss Vicki

  201. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Night all……..Miss Vicki

  202. dailylurker says:

    Hi Kathy! I’m in the Florida area. Just started a new hobby, couponing, lols. Watching too much of the “Extreme Couponing” show on TLC. I used my first coupons today and it felt weird but I did save a lot of money. lols. :) Anyway that was random.

    Ray, your comment above about David possibly lying restless in bed about his decision to go on his mission made me tear up a little. :( I know, I’m a total sap. Love your comments! I understand EVERYTHING you write. I know about the whole spelling thing. My boyfriend is a computer programmer but his spelling isn’t so great, but he is smart as heck.

    Any who, still wondering how we could promote BEGIN. some more and get sales up?
    As a fan all I can do is purchase it and buy a few copies to give to friends and family.

    Oh so did Pecan Pie ever get that hug from David that day? lols I’m still wondering about that. Have a great night everyone. I think I’m going to write David a letter, it’s been hard trying to find postcards in my area. Maybe I will make my own card on the computer and send it to him.

  203. Lisa @txarchie says:

    Candy……Your post about David’s lips made me LOL for some reason. You are such a hoot.

  204. Kathy says:

    Just want to leave my last lurker post tonight that I respect his decisions. I am not Morman but spent a week in Uhah this summer and respects their need for service. Go, David, Go!

  205. Janel aka Nellie says:

    The new zone pic where David is, is being shuffled around on FB. I still don’t see the picture updated on the mission website, so I’m unsure where the pic is from. So WARNING FB LINK TO PIC OF DAVID’S NEW ZONE. on.fb.me/RTNh0t

  206. Goodnight Kathy and everyone else. See you all tomorrow. Happy David Dreams.

  207. dailylurker says:

    Kathy I totally agree with what you said. I respect David’s decision too. I have no doubt in my mind that David will return to music and his return will give him lots of press. That will definitely help with the Spanish album in 2014, lols. Thinking ahead….:) As much as we want mega success for David, I’m just hoping that he gets to continue to make music. His is just too talented to be wasted. ArchuStock sounds awesome! I am so there.

  208. dailylurker says:

    “He” not “His”…..ok can’t type anymore, getting tired………….time for some zzzzzzzz

  209. Martha says:

    Janel – could you give that link again to the pic on Facebook? The one you gave before doesn’t work. Thanks.

  210. Janel aka Nellie says:

    oops sorry (WARNING MISSIONARY PIC) http://on.fb.me/RTNh0t

  211. Martha says:

    Janel – Thanks! Its a good pic of him, looks happy and healthy!

  212. lurker#1millionth&9 says:

    Janel – David looks so young, relax and very happy in that picture. It looks like he has gain weight a little bit. I love it.

    Thanks for the pic. Makes me happy.

  213. frio says:

    Thanks guys for posting the updates :)
    It also makes me happy to see he’s gained weight, for some reason other than they’re keeping him healthy. Haha :D
