Nothing is ever wrong. We learn from every step we take. Whatever you did today was the way it was meant to be. Be proud of you.

Worth waiting for!

Looks like more progress is being made on the Rainbow Music Video.  Jon Daza, part of the production team, tweeted a quasi status report this morning!

From somebody’s laptop, and Jon Daza’s Instagram

A short snippet as captured by @jackryan4DA from Paolo Bernaldo promotional video:

Officialising a David-ism

There are certain characteristics, or sayings, or ways of acting that define David, so much so that we have been calling them David-ism for, I’d say, years.  At least four of them!  But lo-and-behold, someone has provided another to the Urban Dictionary to “officialize”.

Last week we reported on “Archies”.  There is also a definition of “Archangels”

Today:  THE HUNKERDOWN

I always thought FOD-ers coined this phrase, but regardless, it can now be found below:

 

Defined as:  The act of bending over and singing a long extended powerful note in a song.

The singer David Archuleta is known for giving his all in live concert settings and doing the “hunkerdown” is a common occurrence as he belts out a long, gorgeous (sometime high) note.

Shall we define “the hunkerdown” in pictures?  Yes, we shall!  A recent hunkerdown  below:

From our mediafiles. Just entitled “Major Hunkerdown”

We titled this Major Hunkerdown, but hmmm.  I’m not sure if the one above quite defines it.  Not “major” enough. So let’s go on a little tour, shall we? One of the first hunkerdowns, American Idol tour:

A very good example!  Here’s a blurry hunkerdown in Cleveland 2009, credit to me.  Click to bigger-ize!

A hunkerdown can be done anywhere.  In a bookstore….

Outside a bookstore….

In Plaid…..

Or stripes…..

And they happen all over the world!  In the US in the pics above…..

And in Japan!  And many other international places (hopefully, WAY more to come in #DA2014 +)

They are captured in print.  And in Video!  JackRyan calls this ”Hunkerdown #1″ Moment lol.  From HCM Concert -ALTNOY upclose,  July 21, 2011.

Do you have a favourite Hunkerdown moment?  Tell us in comments or email us at fodfrontpage@gmail.com .  I’ll put some more together for next Monday.

Next David-ism to be profiled?  The “Anyway” :)

* * * * *

Get them while they are Hot and Fresh!

Last week I reported that Broken had been added to the playlist at B91.3 in Singapore.  Well, now you can vote for it!!!!  Yup, it’s hot and fresh!  Thanks for the find Joanie!

“The Voice that can do no wrong”

“There’s only one word I can think of: masterful,” she continued. “It reminds me of David Archuleta in a way. You know that kind of voice that can do no wrong. It’s just so pure and it’s like it’s coming from heaven. And it just got better and better. Wow! You’re going places,” she added.

 Read about Philippines competition to become the Peninsula’s next Lounge Singer.  Although that connotation may not always be seen as positive, you have to admit to requiring mastery in vocal technique to win a competition such as this.  One competitor is compared to David.  Click below to read.  Tx for the find Martha.

* * * * *

From the vault:  MTV Top 3!!!

Two years ago, David Archuleta was on MTV 10 on Top.  He was No. 3.  Look at what he says about the high notes on Something Bout Love.


* * * * *

This and that…

Just gathering up a few things I have found.  Sadly, I can’t get everything from comments today.  Real Life hit hard yesterday!  Keep posting those lovely gifs and we so enjoy putting them on our front page!

Make sure you click on the link beow.  Notice Me plays!!!  Wonderful….listen to that voice.  Love this song!!!!  Credit:  everywordisbetterwithyou tumblr

I would like David to come back in 2014 and repeat Al jolson again with another song You Made Me Love You with Al Jolson version with the kneeling and all haha I love that song.

  26. Grace says:

    Hey all!!
    I have been busy but aware of what’s going on in David land. Thanks for all the goodies you guys have constantly provided here.
    The lucky Chilean folks had a mini concert that combined pop/hymn/dance/boxing etc. Wowza!!! Also I am glad he can still sing Silent Night in this coming Christmas at the next devotional concert.

    Went to Walmart to check out his CDs and someone kept putting his CD behind Christina Aguilera, so a little war was going on bw that person and me. Finally, I gave up, so I just bought the last BEGIN. lol. Hope they order more CDs in the store.

    Martha, thanks for the missionary blog. David is so humble and I love that he develops friendship with other missionaries and people there. I am sure he would make the best time of life while he’s there.
    Gotta go. Have a great day, folks!!!

  28. I'm a Mormon says:

    Pastel,

    Enjoyed the hunkerdown and pics from Okinawa. I learn so much from all of you. This is such a great place to hang out in . A question? Please explain ODD. I’m pretty sure I know what it means and that we all have it, but is it an acronym ? I just can’t figure it out.

  29. sarahhazel says:

    I’m a Mormon–Hi! ODD–Obssesive David Disorder…..pretty much explains it all, right?! :lol:

  30. sarahhazel says:

    For fun purposes, here’s also a definition from UD…..but ODD is IMO is “deeper” than this…. :)
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Obsessive%20David%20Disorder

  31. sarahhazel says:

    Call me naive, but I didn’t know there’s ODCD too…..LOL
    http://obssesivedavidcookdisorder.weebly.com/

  32. I'm a Mormon says:

    sarahhazel
    Thanks! You solved a mystery I have had on my mind for about a year, since I started reading this fan site. It took me quite a while to even discover the comments page. And it’s so much fun. BTW, I just don’t know how you find all the David links. I am so in awe of all you techno geniuses. And grateful!

  33. sarahhazel says:

    Here’s a supplemental video to learn about ODD! :lol:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoImtNO5VUM

  34. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Pastel for the awesome Tuesday post.
    Love the hunkerdown tour, nothing quite as fine as a David hunkerdown moment.

  35. bychance says:

    Hi all! Looks like another fun day! You ladies are hilarious an delightful……what a great place FOD is!

    I LOVE the hunkerdown post. I still remember the first time I saw him do that. It was on GCT dvd (the same time I was struck by Archulightning), and I thought..how does he do that? Doesn’t that make it harder to sing those high notes?! But, no!! , he hit them perfectly. David is the master of the hunkerdown!!

    IaM, (is it ok if I shorten your name to that?) I’m sure there are others who could give you a full and creative description of ODD. But….Obsessive David Disorder is what we all have…..can’t get him out of our heads!

  36. sarahhazel says:

    I’m a Mormon–you’re welcome….but I can’t give you the ODD certification yet until you finish watching the above-posted video….haha! ;)

  37. sarahhazel says:

    Wow, so many learning materials on ODD!….I can’t stop!…..After this, I’ll have a Ph.D.!!! :)
    http://fanblastworld.wordpress.com/odd/

  38. sarahhazel says:

    by chance–I think Masterclass Lady mentioned one time that the hunkerdown he does actually relaxes his knee and this enables him to reach those high notes…..though she didn’t really elaborate how that works….LOL

  39. breanne says:

    Pastel, thanks for your great post!!! Love all the hunkerdown pics! He even did the hunkerdown on one of the songs he sang with the MOTAB’s. I can’t remember which song it was but I remember him doing it & chuckling to myself.

    sarahhazel, that Bench pic at 11:32 with the hat is unbelievable! I’ll just leave it at that!! *.*

  40. sarahhazel says:

    breanne-I know what you mean….haha….
    –thanks so much for all the voting reminders!….you’re one awesome fan!

  41. bychance says:

    sarahhazel….ready for my certificate!….I loved the ODD vid……. explained it perfectly! Who knew there was so much info on ODD?….not me, obviously! Another reason why I must keep coming here….for my David education! I think I’m getting caught up….and then I get surprised again!…..so much to learn!

  42. sarahhazel says:

    by chance–Great!…we all learn something new everyday….haha…..I’ll have yours printed ASAP! :)

  43. bychance says:

    Speaking of ODD. Am I the only one who can’t get the picture of David’s Chile concert out of their head? I’m still smiling over it….picturing him so happy and doing what he loves to do, and everyone there salsa dancing with him…….it just makes me a happy camper!!

  44. oinkiers says:

    Hunkerdown here in Iowa means get boohind in the basement a tornado is coming!! So I am learning some intersting things about hunkerdown today!!

  45. sarahhazel says:

    by chance–I’m pretty sure you’re not alone on that!

  46. bychance says:

    thanks, sarahhazel!

  47. oinkiers says:

    Your not alone ByChance

  48. bychance says:

    oinkiers……a tornado!….never heard him described that way, but yeah, think you could say that about him!

  49. I'm a Mormon says:

    sarahhazel,
    Loved those links–believe me, I qualify. I have only seen David once live and I went with my husband. When Zero Gravity started and I leaped up and started jumping, he gave me that side-wise look that said “Do I know you?” and then, “You DO remember that you are 58 and have bad knees right?” I didn’t care though. The pain was worth it!

    bychance, I don’t mind at all that you shortened my name. Someone else asked me that, but I didn’t have time to get back with them on it.–I think it was Josie. I have to laugh a little though because I’m a Mormon is the shortened version of I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. How is that for a long screen name?

  50. oinkiers says:

    ByChance– no that is actually what people say when a tornado is coming at least in my small town!! :lol:

  51. bychance says:

    IaM….LOL ….and yes, you have ODD!!

  52. Martha says:

    I’m a Mormon – your name is fine with me, easy to type :)

  53. bychance says:

    oinkiers….well then let’s hope that the only hunkering down you need is David’s!

  54. sarahhazel says:

    I’m a Mormon–haha…that “hubby” look….a lot of us had that!….I went to his concert a few weeks after knee surgery and yes, the pain was worth it, like you said! :)

  55. I'm a Mormon says:

    So glad you are all here to answer my questions and share ODD with me. I’m off to pick up library books from a couple of shut-in friends.

  56. sarahhazel says:

    See ya later, IaM!

  57. oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel you had knee surgery? How are your knees now?

    Posted Sunday 14th October 2012 from Twitlonger

    @kariontour Hi Kari can you answer a question many of us have? Does David still want us to respect his time on his mission and keep his day to day activities and pictures private? We take our cue from you and you have not posted or announced stuff like his concert last night yet everyone is talking and tweeting about it like it’s OK. It seems like the mission also tried to keep it private with tickets and making sure no photos were taken and David didn’t even greet people, so we wonder. Can you please tell David there are really a lot of fans who are trying to respect his wishes? But we’d really like to know. Thanks!

    ohh you can vote for BROKEN and they play it here!!

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @pabuckie No, it does not mean 2 videos. It is defined here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubstep

    Dubstep (/ˈdʌbstɛp/) is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England. The music website Allmusic has described its overall sound as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals”

  74. sarahhazel says:

    I am guilty as charged! LOL

    NANDITO AKO!! :)

    marciami ‏@marciami
    @kariontour Is there ANY chance that we might ever have a DVD of NA? At one time I think someone in Manila said it would eventually happen:)

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @marciami they are trying to work out details and all the paperwork on their end but we have not seen any final paper for approval! Yet! :)

  76. sarahhazel says:

    Occasional vocals?….hope not! :lol:

  77. sarahhazel says:

    Glad they’re still working on it! :D

  78. oinkiers says:

    RainboW!!! And Na DVD!!! Wouldn’t it be awesome :LOL:

  79. kimk says:

    sarahhazel umm.. David will be on our screens bopping to the beat.. do his vocals matter all that much? :)

  80. oinkiers says:

    Kimk- :lol:

  81. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–hmmm, you have a point there……so…..who cares?!….I’ll take anything!

  82. Candy says:

    and that my friends is why I worry about what the future holds for David…and for us! was that really necessary. The morality police are alive and well…
    I will never ever understand why it is so difficult…if you want to know about something, then read it, if you dont…just as simple…dont!

  83. Candy says:

    and please dont count me among the “many of us” I dont give a carp! sorry but that burned my butt, for the first time in six months the fanbase has been uplifted, filled with joyus glee…I just dont get it!

  84. Candy says:

    kimk-my zipper is worn out, six months of this tattletale jr high stuff is ridiculous!!

  85. oinkiers says:

    Candy- don’t let one tweet get to you! I think it is split in half! I think David knew going into his mission that not every thing was going to stay out of the “news”!! No worries we are not going any where!!

  86. Candy says:

    oinkers- sorry, I know, I guess what really concerns me is what affect that will have on any future recaps from Gladys, or anyone why would they even bother!

  87. oinkiers says:

    That person is one of many fans! I think it was wrong to be “called out like that” and why to Kari? I think she has enough stress on her plate all ready, than worrying about leaks getting out! We will still get info….. the ninjas remember and not only that there are flies on the wall that will be in his present at times that will have no problem talking so…… No WORRIES!!

  88. Martha says:

    I think Kari silence is for different reasons, not necessarily just what the tweeter took from it JMO JMO JMHO

    I wouldn’t have seen this but it came up on my timeline

    I think the tweeter is the minority big time JMO JMO

    If I find a pic, blog, video etc., I will post a link, don’t feel any different than before, but won’t express my reasons here.

    I will abide my FOD’s rules when posting here

  89. Candy says:

    if K is smart, and I think she is…she will maintain her silence, if she chooses not to…unfortunately the you know what issue will rear its ugly head!

  90. kimk says:

    Candy ha you rock.

  91. oinkiers says:

    just so you know I am with you guys……. bring on any little info we can get ….

  92. kimk says:

    I just do my thing.. enjoy life.. enjoy David.. and love as I can.
    speaking of which..

    what say we try and trend Rainbow when it drops?!
    even if it doesn’t trend it will be fun to tweet about!! :)

    on twitter this morn I tweeted this

    kim ‏@kimak
    @DavidArchie peeps.. what say we trend something like #DARainbowMV when it drops!!!??!

    but anything easy might actually work as we will be

    pumped and stoked!! :D

  93. Ali says:

    I’ve not said much about this whole to know/not to know mission controversy just because I’ve always subscribed to the philosophy that the less you say, the smarter you seem ;)

    Today, though, I have something I want to say.

    I am an adult and, by the grace of God, I was born in a country that guarantees my right to freely discuss whatever crosses my little mind. I do not require nor desire the permission of ANYONE to talk about a public performance (or a private one, for that matter). I understand that FOD is a moderated forum and I have tried to respect the wishes of the mods to keep mission details behind links so that only those who want to know can find out. However, I take exception to another fan feeling they need to ask for clearance for the entire fanbase to discuss something elsewhere. If you want to ask for yourself, go right ahead. See what kind of response you get. I’ll thank you to keep me out of it.

    As for the performance being “private” because tickets were required, really??

    “So how was the Jason Mraz concert last night?”
    “Ohhh sorry I can’t talk about that. We had to have tickets to get in so its confidential.”
    “……”

    Yeah. See how ridiculous that sounds?

    Mostly I’m just upset at people feeling the need to act as if they control others. This is not grade school and neither Kari nor David are my hall monitor so don’t feel the need to ask their permission for me. I think everyone should do what they feel is right for themselves and not feel the need to decide for others. I’ll take care of me.

    Personally I don’t think Kari or David are losing sleep at night worrying about what tiny details fans might be talking about now. I’m sure they have way more important things to focus on.

  94. Candy says:

    off to the kitchen…dinner is served!! BBL

  95. Candy says:

    Ali-I love you!
    Be back after dinner!

  96. kimk says:

    I do love freedom of speech.

  97. Martha says:

    Ali – Thank you, your last paragraph especially.

  98. Martha says:

    I wish I could relay a story, but its not mine to tell. Suffice to say that members of David’s family have indicated they are happy and proud to look at some of the pictures and have indicated to those who oppose the posting of pictures, that its not up to them to give approval. Hope I haven’t said too much or spoken out of line.

  99. sarahhazel says:

    That’s right! To whom it may concern: If you don’t want to see it, don’t read it, don’t pay attention to it…or hide under a big rock until #DA2014 if you want!

    I’m gonna be here enjoying what I can enjoy until FOD officially bans me….in writing!

  100. Bychance says:

    I might be stepping in it again, but (and this is just my opinion…what feels right for me, everyone has to decide that for themselves), but was thinking Sat. night that Gladys is like a little blessing. David doesn’t want to be worrying about his career right now or be too much in the spotlight career wise while on his mission, i.e. putting out videos, pics, official publicity to fans about concerts, etc. ….it would all detract from his purpose now. But we his fans still care about him, still want to know how he is. I think, as someone here has said before, that there is a master plan….and we his fans are part of that plan. So how nice to have someone like sweet Gladys to tell us of her experiences…Gladys or Gissele can help us know how he is without David having to worry about it. I guess I also feel like there is a big difference between David’s day to day mission and a concert for four hundred people. Following him around, taking pics all the time would be considered an invasion of privacy….but a concert doesn’t feel like that to me. I can see how David would ask there be no vids or pics because he does not want to be promoting himself right now, or even appear to be doing that. The good feeling that was here after Gladys shared her experience says to me that this is OK…..at least for me…….again, just my opinion…what works for me….no tomatoes please. I think this is the best possible way for it all to work while he is gone. Keeping fans happy and David happy…..and I do think he is happy. Oh too long winded, and rambly and redundant , sorry.

  111. Anita says:

    Thanks for today’s post, Pastel. I love that you showcased David’s hunkerdowns! What a neat idea! I remember a while back when a reader of Masterclass Lady mentioned that he/she noticed that when David was hitting a more difficult note, or high note, David would do this, but most everyone else would look up to the ceiling. Masterclass Lady responded it was because David know’s what he’s doing, and that’s partly why she loves him so!! I’ve never forgotten her saying that!

  112. oinkiers says:

    ByChance- oh, boy Wibur and the gand are talking about something……..

  114. Tracy says:

    Wow-reading the comments, where and when did we get policed? what did i miss? why is so wrong with what was posted??

  115. sarahhazel says:

    Anita–Yes, she said that about the hunkerdown….she loves it too!

    On a side note, wonder why she hasn’t reviewed BEGIN.?

  116. kimk says:

    really looking forward to hearing what Jay Durias has done with Rainbow!
    be prepared folks.. won’t be your average David music!!!
    and to that I say woo hoo!! ¥essiree
    easy listening has gone poof!!!

  117. kimk says:

    Tracy not here.

  118. kimk says:

    Rainbow is what we should be focusing on.. we get David DANCING!!!!!!!!!

  119. Ali says:

    Sorry, didn’t mean to vent and run lol but I had to run an errand.

    I certainly wasn’t trying to be a downer to anyone. I just have a pet peeve when one or a few people present themselves to speak for the group or even “many”of the group. My favorite teacher always said, stick to what you know. You know yourself not everyone else.

    I’m super excited about the Rainbow video/remix too!! I’m also afraid that this means that I will secretly hate it when it comes out lololol. That’s just how things work for me ;p

  120. Martha says:

    Ali – you expressed it so well I copied and pasted it for future reference. I’ll give you full credit if I quote from it. jk lol :)

  121. Tracy says:

    Oh ok, i thought i was missing something or some comments were deleted or something. I didnt see anything wrong, if you wanna see and read it do so if not dont. Simple as that!

  122. oinkiers says:

    kimk- I have been trying to DM you for the last ten mins……. it won’t let me for some reason I will try again later!!

  123. VaBeachArchie says:

    With my schedule I don’t have as much David time as I’d like and with few computer skills also can’t find and post all things David. I do however APPRECIATE ALL that IS posted! My choice to read or not! THANKS to Gladys, sarahhazel, kimk , Martha, Janel and all the other fans that keep us coming back to read comments and ENJOY them. KEEP THEM COMING AND THANKS!

    Heading back to the beach! Yay a night off!

    Sent the concerned citizen a friendly tweet :grin: Hope I was respectful & made my point.
    Gotta go for a bit, will check in later, hope you all are having a FANtastic day. Ciao

  131. kimk says:

    LOL!!

    Cindy. #DA2014 ‏@CanadianArchie
    @kariontour haha.. ah.. yes David doing the dub steppin! ;)

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @CanadianArchie not sure if I would call it dubstep! Not too sure!

  132. kimk says:

    ha well whatever it is I WANT IT!!

  133. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just want to say I’m thankful for all the David info I can get. Need to know he’s happy and doing well. Makes me feel good. I appreciate all the links and videos that are posted here. I’ve learned a lot here about the computer stuff,too. Never thought I’d be so attached to this contraption, but it has brought me beautiful moments on the David Journey. I love all the fans on FOD. The sweetest bunch around. ((hugs))

  134. Ali says:

    While we wait for Rainbow, was watching some older vids today. I just love this one from Vietnam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGkmKpm4PsY

    The crowd is so excited! Please to not be pulling The Archuleta off stage though lol.
    All of the remixed vids on that channel from the show in Hanoi are awesome.

  135. Ali says:

    Martha – HAHA! Please feel free ;p

  136. Anita says:

    sarah-Masterclass Lady doesn’t review albums on her post very often, but it sure would be wonderful if she would review BEGIN. I think she only reviewed David’s debut album, and Christmas album. I sure wish she would have reviewed TOSOD as well. I know she really does love that one!

  137. sarahhazel says:

    Rainbow is meant to be fun!…..will be nice to see a happy David MV for a change…..so bring on that hot-Chile pepper dubstepping in HD!!!

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

    Thanks tami_lyn :grin: Ok, bye. bbs

  139. oinkiers says:

    Beth how come I am not following you on twitter!!

  140. sarahhazel says:

    Anita–hopefully she’ll review it someday.

  141. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–LOL….”concerned citizen”…..you’re too funny……thanks for doing that!

  142. kimk says:

    I will guess the music is dubstep but David is more bopping to the music?
    whatever it is.. finally we get David partying hard!
    rofl.

  143. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–love the close-ups on that Vietnam concert video….there were some “dangerous” touch-the-fan-hand moments there….haha….(think another video showed the fans running to the stage & security were freaking out trying to control them!)

  144. kimk says:

    ROCKSTAH!!!!

    be prepared David.. this WILL happen again come 2014!!

    http://youtu.be/HtuCUcybdqw

    kimk–didn’t have to see David in that video to feel the fandemonium! :shock: :D

  151. sarahhazel says:

    Oooopsie….didn’t see that!…LOLOLOLOLOL

  152. Candy says:

    anita-I too remember masterclass lady taking about the hunkerdown and why and how David used it. I think I recall her saying he used it to fore air out of the diaphram to carry long notes… or something close to that. The Hunkerdown is a beautiful thing…first time I saw one was during Stand BY Me on the AI tour, I was like Lordy what is this new beast being unleashed on us poor unsuspecting fans…little did I know it would be the beginning of many beasts he would unleash!

  153. kimk says:

    sarahhazel I remember that!! was in CA!!
    dang can we FF to 2014 like NOW !!!?

  157. TGRArchie says:

    Not sure If you have read this tweet from Kari in response to a question from @JoyYap as to whose idea was the rainbow remix:

    @JoyYap it was D’s idea because our driver Sherwin had a remix of Rainbow that even @jaydurias had never heard that we would have Sherwin play over and over again when we were in the van. I would say it was our “theme song” So after talking to Jay, David recorded a different version that has a little faster speed to it and then Jay worked his magic. Not knowing what we would do with it one day.

  158. kimk says:

    TGRArchie thanks!! dying to hear this remix!!

  159. sarahhazel says:

    TGR–thanks for that bit of Rainbow remix history!

  160. glitter*girl says:

    people on twitter know that if they want attention all they have to do is mention david archuleta!!! lol

  161. TGRArchie says:

    You’re welcome Kimk and Sarahhazel! I learned from one of my sources that the Rainbow MV may come out this Saturday on MYX hopefully. Let’s feep our fingers and toes crossed that this happens as scheduled. (“,)

  162. TGRArchie says:

    TGRArchie Saturday is perfect and hope that means we can vote!!!

  165. josie says:

    I Am a Mormon~ (12:46) Yep, it was me trying to figure out a good abbreviation for your name. Thing is…where I come from, “IAM” is one of the names God calls Himself (“I AM”, actually). So I can’t use “IAM” when talking to you, just because it reminds me of that. lol. And when peeps spell your whole name out, I think that they’re saying THEY are Mormon, & it takes me a sec to catch on. lol. So..I’ll need to come up w/something original, ‘cuz obviously my mind works a little…differently. :)

    I don’t have any thoughts re: the Rosario tweet. I have enough of my own stuff to deal with, lol.

    Blue~ Did you know that you can get a pocket pet?? It’s basically a miniature flying squirrel! I saw one for the first time the other day. Adorable! They fly from..wherever they are…into your pocket, or a paper bag. I dunno if they’re shy, or what. lol.

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

    Hello Again! I will be watching the DWTS result show in about 18 minutes, Donny Osmond & Susan Boyle are going to sing a duet, should be interesting, then the debate. So I will be commenting when I can. Should be an interesting night!

    Oinkiers, I thought you were following me, my twitter name is WingsFOD.

    sarahhazel :grin:

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

    Saw a tweet, a 4.6 earthquake in Maine, hope the Eastcoasters are doing ok :grin:

  168. sarahhazel says:

    josie–Are you talking about those super cute things called Sugar Bears (aka Sugar Gliders)?!…..saw some at the mall…..almost took one home!!!
    http://www.sugarbears.com/

  169. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sometimes my two cents gets bottled up inside the coin hole of my piggy bank, but they are raring to get out at this point so here it goes.
    I respect the wishes of FOD to include only links and be careful what we talk about here. I know we talked about certain goings-on in Chile Saturday night but I really think that was something OK to talk about and I don’t think much moderation took place because of it.
    However, that tweet is going to far. I think the tweeter not only was trying to get Kari to repremand the fanbase for info on Saturday night, but also to get Kari to say something to agree with her side and the side of her cohorts whom I believe are a minority voice (and not “many” or a “majority” as is claimed by some).
    My belief as to why Kari did not answer her or any other fans about Saturday night is I believe (not speaking for her just a feeling) that she might be neutral on the subject. She doesn’t want to alienate certain fans over others and open up a can of worms she can’t close back up again. Pandora’s box will stay shut.
    I believe FOD, and many other fan sites, and FB fan groups help to keep the home fires burning for David. Keep hold onto his precious fan base for when he returns. If news of big to-do’s in Chile are given to us by Chileans who attend, it just helps add kindling to the fire and keep us around. I’m betting Kari realizes this. Not answering tells her everything she needs to know. Hmmm…..mind readers in the fan base now?

  170. oinkiers says:

    I will have to double check that LOL!!

  171. oinkiers says:

    Nope I am not but I will in just a min. :lol:

  172. josie says:

    sarah~ Yes! Sugar gliders! Aren’t they stinkin’ cute? No idea how much they cost, though.

    Sorry to interrupt, Janel.

  173. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–Maine?….that’s weird.

  174. sarahhazel says:

    oinkiers–double check what?

  175. oinkiers says:

    If I was following Beth on twitter!

  176. Janel aka Nellie says:

    And I might add, I totally agree with Ali. If you want to tweet Kari your feelings, speak for yourself.
    Candy, Amen!!!! Giving the fans something to keep interest, make them excited, help the time go by until 2014 comes. I hope it doesn’t stop!

  177. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–thanks for your 2 cents….well said. :)

  178. sarahhazel says:

    josie–they must be expensive….but the upkeep costs are cheaper than having a dog or cat per the info they gave us.

  179. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah now I can’t decide if that makes my piggy bank 2c richer or poorer. LOL

  180. Hi! everyone, just got home from work. Exciting, we may get RAINBOW soon. On MYX. Sounds like everyone is having fun today. alot of comments. Haven’t had time to read all of them yet, but i will.We have the best fans in the world. I’m so proud to call myself an ARCHIE.
    Now i’m ready for

    RAINBOW
    RAINBOW
    RAINBOW!!!!!!!!!!!

  181. sarahhazel says:

  182. oinkiers says:

    Piggies are always cuter FAT!!! just saying………Wilbur agrees!!

  183. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Those Sugar Babies are so cute. Wonder why never hear about them. Don’t remember seeing them in the pet store.

  184. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–most likely on Saturday we’ll get the Rainbow MV…..will be a fun weekend!

  185. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–they only show them at special demos at the malls….they don’t produce a lot of babies so breeding is slow….& they’re also not considered exotic.

  186. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Linda – Welcome home to FOD. Hurry back

  187. Thanks sarahhazel,
    SGJ i’m here to stay. I am able to join you guys all evening, got everything done.
    I’m ready for FUN,FUN.FUN. :roll:

  188. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- Oh so that’s why I don’t see them. Sugar Babies don’tprocuce a lot of babies.They said to get two maybe they would breed and the there would be a whole lot of Sugar Babies. How cute or is it?? :wink:

  189. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–they’re really cute in real life….maybe one day you’ll see them in a mall….I think the site has a schedule where and when they are showing them.

  190. I’ve never heard of sugar babies? So they are real? What are they?

  191. oinkiers says:

    Linda- Ready for FUN!! :lol: I am always ready for fun!!

  192. sarahhazel says:

    oinkiers–Ella’s getting a tad jealous now cuz I keep talking about Sugar Bears.

  193. oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- oh, boy she probably will strike when not expecting it!!

  194. oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- thats why she came with the heels and the boa DIVA!!!

  195. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–it’s sugar bears…haha….I posted a link @6:45 :)

  196. Oinkier! THEN LET THE FUN BEGIN!

  197. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    duh I keep writing Sugar Babies instead of Sugar Bears. :lol: :lol: Aren’t sugar babies candy?? :oops:

    Linda go to-sarahhazel 6:45p.m.

  198. sarahhazel says:

    oinkiers–oh, no…..she’s just starting to unleash her inner diva! :eek:

  199. Sarahhazel, thanks. They are cute. But so tiny,

  200. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Donny Osmond & Susan Boyle are coming up on DWTS.

  201. oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- oh boy!! Goodluck let me know how it goes!! :lol: !!

  202. glitter*girl says:

    oh it’s donny!!! my fantasy lover! :)

  203. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–your original hottie….haha!

  204. sarahhazel says:

    oinkiers–I sure will! :D

  205. sarahhazel says:

    Possibly 3 more days till Rainbow MV spazzfest!…I can’t wait any longer!!!

  206. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Forgive me but I didn’t like that at all. Susan Boyle sounded awful.

    tami lyn- What do you think.?

    Beth- Is there something wrong with the sound on my T.V.?

  207. sarahhazel says:

    McKenzie Harris ‏@McKenzieHarr

    @DavidArchie fans trend “Dancing David Archuleta” & “Rainbow Music Video” when MV is released. 2 WWTT! @jaydurias @jondaza @IvoryMusicVideo

  208. oinkiers says:

    SPAZZING!!! I think that is what we all do best…….not to talk for all of you…… :lol: !!

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

    It looks like Susan has terrible stage fright or not feeling well, but Donny was so kind, there for her & supportive. Donny sounded great, Susan sounded ok some of the song & spectacular in other parts, their voices dont blend so well, but it was great :grin:

  210. nora says:

    not to change the subject but, I was reading comments and all of a sudden my house started shaking & felt vibration under my feet, come to find out there was a 4.6 earth quake in Maine, and we felt it in a little town in MA. was scarey, never felt one before. Guess I’ll go back and finish reading comments. BBL

  211. blue says:

    josie – the owners of my daughter’s karate studio used to sell those and had them at the studio often. they are so cute! but so fast. hard to catch. kinda like my chinchilla except that my chinchilla LOVES treats so it’s not hard to get him in his cage after a few hours of playtime. all i have to do is give him part of a noodle.

  212. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ yes he is the original hottie! screamed and cried for days when he got married!!!LOL!

  213. Candy says:

    I cant wait to have a “Rainbow Connection” Bring on that deb stepping video now!

  214. blue says:

    nora – did anything get damaged?

  215. sarahhazel says:

    nora–you felt the earthquake????….yikes!!!

  216. nora says:

    Hi everybody, they just downgraded the earthquake to 4.o, they said there was no damage there, I wrote the first comment a while ago but didn’t post it, with all the excitement I forgot to post it.

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

    Hey supergrand! I dont think they had the mic’s set right for Donny & Susan. Susan was good one minute, hit some great notes, then it wasnt so good. Like I said in my previous comment, I think she had major stage fright or she was sick, Donny seemed very concerned about her, she reached out her hand to him & you could hear him say at the end, “you did it” & kissed her on the side of the head. Something was going on, not sure what. If stage frieght, Donny knows how it feels, he had it really bad, awhile back.

  218. When is the trending?. Did they say? Hope not fri, I have my grandsons football gamee.

  219. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–wow, you probably had late stage ODoD (Obssesive Donny Disorder) back then…and you were quite young!

  220. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    nora- Yes we heard. Everythings alright I hope.

    Beth- You are so kind. So spoiled by David and his beautiful voice and control. To me it sounded like she can only sing certain songs and this one wasn’t it. Just makes me wonder what made that a standing ovation. Yes Donny was gracious and good.

  221. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Yeah, BYE

  222. breanne says:

    VOTE 1 song hourly for @DavidArchie’s Everybody Hurts, Broken & I’ll Never Go on Chart Central. http://chartcentral.frihost.net/cc/

  223. sarahhazel says:

    nora–that’s good.

    Beth–there was probably going on with Susan.

    Linda–it said when it’s released……

  224. Beth, i believe that Susan Boyle has had a bad time adjusting to fame. She’s had a breakdowns because of it. I feel bad for her. She has a beautiful voice. Thank Goodness Donny was the one singing with her. He knew how to handle it.

  225. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda – I know you didn’t see it yet. I’m sorry that I didn’t care for it but she’s been on stage a lot since she won. I feel bad for her. David gives 1000% and they never asked him to be on. My ODD is in high gear. :wink:

  226. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ yeah i don’t remember what grade i was in but i remember being with my friends in the cafeteria and we were all crying!!! lol!

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

    Linda, I agree, I think she loves to sing, but fame is very hard for her.

    supergrand, yeah, she hit some klunker notes, but she hit a few great ones too. It looks like she would just like to record the music, the live performances are hard on her.

    sarahhazel, True.

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

    supergrand, Yeah, if they have David on, he will bring the house down(in a good way). Davids talent is unmatched. Gosh, I just think of some of his performances & it blows my mind, not to mention, he’s a true Sweetheart :grin:

  229. sarahhazel says:

    jackryan–Hi! my favorite part of that concert set list…..don’t know how he does it….magnificent vocals on 3 consecutive high-note songs–FS, SBM & EAM!….he was on FIYAAAHHH!

  230. josie says:

    blue~ “part of a noodle”? That’s my kind of pet. lol…..When David gets back, we should buy him a sugar glider! He has pets, he loves squirrels, he wouldn’t get bored with it…
    Nora~ Wow. I would’ve been freaking out a little… :( Sorry to hear that Susan had a hard time tonight. Reminds me of when David sang TMH on AI. And he was waaaaay too hard on himself afterwards.

  231. Sarahhazel, thanks, i just reread the WWTT comment. Your right/
    sgj, don’t worry about ruining anything for me. It’s OK. I just want Apolo to win.

    I don’t mean to be a party pooper peeps, tucked my girls in and now for some reason starting to feel under the weather, I am hopeing if just go to bed I will feel better in the morning good night!!

  233. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand, Beth–hopefully when he comes back and has new music….the curiosity factor will get him buzz, put him back on the spotlight and get him TV guesting appearances.

  234. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- Looks like you liked the videos. Mucho caliente! SiSi!!

  235. sarahhazel says:

    oinkiers–sorry about that….get some rest….and hope you feel better tomorrow.

  236. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–been liking….no, loving….no, been addicted to those videos from Day 1! :D

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

    Goodnight Oinkiers, take care :grin:

  238. Oinkier, hope you get to feeling better. Gotta get well to jam with Rainbow remix

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

    sarahhazel, I believe they already have plans in the works, he may sign with a label shortly after he returns, I think the buzz of his coming home, will have a big impact, he may get some gigs right away(well, after a couple of weeks of rest & relaxation)

  240. Candy says:

    Beth-Im with you, think there are things in the works, oh say maybe a movie offer and a new TV sequel, its all on Davids shoulders as to where and how he moves forward.

  241. Beth, i have the same feeling. When things are quiet, like they are now, its because something is cooking.

  242. Candy says:

    I just realized I didnt thank Pastel for this great post! Sorry about that, got sidetracked by a couple of things. I really hope our mods dont feel pressured to always come up with killer posts, while we do love them as long as we have a place to chat, and a picture or two we will be just fine.

  243. josie says:

    Sorry if I derailed the conversation earlier. I think everyone made good points.

  244. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- I truly believe he will be a big success. He so deserves to be revered and respected in the music business.

  245. Anita says:

    Candy-Unleash the beasts! You’re too funny! He must have unleashed a few Saturday night, heh? LOL!! David’s technique when it comes to singing is extraordinary. I also noticed with David that sometimes he’ll just bend forward without bending his knees when singing. I wonder if that has the same affect. When he sang “Oh Holy Night” at Club Nokia during the MKOC tour he just bent over without bending his knees. Well, I better get back to the Pres. Debate, so maybe I’ll be back a little later.

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

    Candy, remember, when David went to talk to all of those labels after jive, didnt he get like 5 or 6 offers? I just think he had to go on the mission first, otherwise he would’ve regreted it. People in the music industry are well aware of David, his talent, his character, his heart, how he treats people, he’s a multi-talented, multi-faceted human being. The sky’s the limit, where David is concerned.

    Yup Linda, David is a hot comodity, he will be in high demand, no wonder really :grin:

  247. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I won’t share them here, but I gave a certain tweeter a piece of my mind. I ended it though. nellie1983

  248. I lost internet in my laptop, so I’m on my cell till I reset it. I think David stalled a lot because he knew he wanted to go on his mission. I know Manila will be ready for him if he wants it.

  249. sarahhazel says:

    Candy, Beth–You’re both getting me super excited already with those “plans in the works” theories!…..I really hope and pray they have all of that stuff in place when he comes back…..everything will be fresh and exciting once again in the Archuuniverse!!!

  250. SARAH – re your question @ 11:30 – those gifs came from David’s interview with MYX when he was here this year. There are 4 vids involved

    1st Perfect Valentine

  251. Martha says:

    Janel – thanks, you did a good job. :)

  252. tami lyn says:

    janel~ saw your tweets! well said!!! :)

  253. nora says:

    janel-I agree with everything you said in previous post. Oinkier hope you feel better in the morning, a good night sleep might be all you need. Just love this fansite, don’t know what I would do without it , the people here are great and I enjoy all the posts from all of you. Really enjoyed info about Chile concert, Keep it coming and thanks to Gladys and Gisielle for all their input.

  254. sarahhazel says:

    Anita–training & practice combined with an innate talent and focus is what makes him a vocalist/performer extraordinaire!

  255. sarahhazel says:

    jackryan–thanks for answering my gif question from way up there…haha!….now I’ll be watching them one by one to enjoy before I call it a night! :D

  256. josie says:

    Linda~ (8:54) ~ “he stalled alot”. Yeaaaaah, I’d say. :roll: lol. “I’m just taking a break.” “I’m watching TV & hanging out with the fam”. “I’m home for the holidays. Here are my cats.” “I’m taking a few songwriting classes, just seeing where things will go from here”. Buger.

  257. sarahhazel says:

    josie– ;) :lol:

  258. sarahhazel says:

    josie–P.S. :( :cry: :mad:

  259. Jack Ryan, thank you for those 4 interviews with MYX. Did David seem a little shy in all of them? or was he just tired. They were all cute, but very shy.

  260. josie says:

    Aww, Sarah. :(

  261. sarahhazel says:

    Aw, just watched jackryan’s videos….so cute when he said (& giggled) that he had to say “mahal kita” a lot in NA scenes…..& when he said it would be great to do a project with Lea Salonga cuz it was Les Mis that inspired him to sing and he didn’t know that she’s Filipina when he watched her in that video when he was 6. :)

  262. sarahhazel says:

    josie–mixed emotions….you know what I mean…..

  263. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–he looked tired in that interview….but still cute as usual.

  264. tami lyn says:

    still would like to know the real reason david(josh) could not kiss jasmine(anya)!

  265. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn– Maybe Josh Bradley does but David Archuleta does not want to.

  266. sarahhazel says:

    Well, I’m pooped from all the fun today……
    Take care everyone….GOODNIGHT AND SWEET RAINBOW DAVID DREAMS!!! :)

  267. glitter*girl says:

    sarah~ i don’t think we are ever gonna find out the real reason. why is it such a big secret i wonder?

  268. LINDA – Probably tired cos he came from late night shooting and was preserving his voice cos PyroPalooza was next day.

    But he was definitely shy when the “mahal kita” topic came up.

    Our guy is such an enigma!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  270. Tami-lyn, i remember Jhen mentioned one time that, it was not proper for younger actors to kiss in syres. just hug. It is the custom or something. Maybe if jhen comes on again she can explain it better. It’s been a while that she commented, maybe she won’t remember saying it.

  271. Candy says:

    Yay Janel!

  272. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel. Time for me to say Goodnight,too. See you all tomorrow.

    RAINBOW
    RAINBOW
    RAINBOW!!!

  273. glitter*girl says:

    thanks linda, but why couldn’t david or mydearwriter just tell us that?

  274. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth, Sweet dreams.

  275. Candy says:

    no secret…they just had to do a little script rewrite. He didnt want it, nothing more then that. When he comes back, I hope he plants a big fat lip lock on his leading lady, no more headstands!

  276. jackryan, maybe you can ans our question about it bieng not proper for very young actors to kiss on TV series?

  277. Candy says:

    maybe someone was under a gag order from their job and couldnt say anything publicly…just saying. :)

  278. tami lyn says:

    yeah probably :) which means we are always left to wonder and speculate lol!

  279. kimk says:

    not sure about not kissing on a series.. at least a kiss on the forehead etc? saw an actor previously kiss Eula in a show. was adorable.. was right after he hold her he loved her.

  280. kimk says:

    now come 2014 if David is in another show.. I say go for it!!
    lol plus the handstand!

  281. Candy says:

    kimk-ok, I’ll give ya the handstand IF when he stands up he kisses her!

  282. Kimk, how do you see those shows and what station, Francisco (Volta ) told me on tweeter that could watch his show Princess and I on the pinoy channel but i couldn’t get it.

  283. tami lyn says:

    and finally… kari responds

  284. tami lyn says:

    well said kari!!! we can all decide for ourselves :)

  285. potluck8 says:

    Hi everyone, super posts today, I would love for David to do a duet with Susan Boyle. She looked frightened to death ! Hard to believe she is younger than Donny.

  286. Candy says:

    glad to see kari take a middle line and say its a personal choice. Her job isnt to police fans or fansites, its to mange David and give updates when she can. Period!

  287. josie says:

    GO KARI!!! Oh wait. I wasn’t gonna get involved. lol. She totally echoed what you guys said, too.

    “We have too many things planned for the future.” Did y’all catch that??? :) :):)

  288. Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour

    @Rosaliah2 That is what is great about social media these days. I will be the first to tweet if I saw for … http://m.tmi.me/yaxSl

  289. I love what Kari said on tweeter. It’s our choice, but even then we are adults and we know how to respect Davids wishes . But it doesn’t mean that we forget about him and not talk about him. If Gladys wants to share what she saw it’s ok. It just means we care and miss him.

  290. kimk says:

    Luv Crazy with Eula
    cute and romantic… first two minutes.

    http://youtu.be/qusu8b4tyRQ

  291. kimk says:

    Linda I think for us we would have to have a livestream?
    hope for one if NA comes to the US!

  292. Candy says:

    kimk-awwwww that was so sweet, things that make you go hmmmm…and we got a handstand…Oh David!

  293. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey all….Been very busy at work and home getting ready to leave for England and France this week….Just love, love, love David’s hunkerdowns….He can truly sing those beautiful high notes….I will try to check in again before I fly to Heathrow….Miss Vicki

  294. kimk says:

    saw Kari’s tweet.. nice tweet.
    ok now
    we can get ready for the man to take on and channel us some Michael Jackson this SATURDAY!!!!! (Sat at least that is what the rumor is anyway)

  295. kimk says:

    Candy figured that would be the case considering he was shortly to go on a mission.
    ha bet anything come 2014 a ton of young ladies will be waiting right as he lands to do all that for real. the
    least he could do is a little practice.. I vote sweet Ms. Eula to finish her dream!!

  296. Candy says:

    kimk-oh that dream….gah it was one heck of a dream…will we ever get a dvd of NA…so loved that show!

  297. Candy says:

    do you remember what show that was were they heard him rehearse Billy Jean? Oh how I would have loved to have been there.

  298. nora says:

    where did you guys read what Kari said? could you repeat it please?

  299. kimk says:

    Candy I think it was his last one in Colorado? it was Shelley who heard it.
    sure hope he does it live for us when he gets back.. HOLY MOLY!!!

  300. kimk says:

    LOVE the part about too many plans for the FUTURE!!!!!! :)

    @Rosaliah2 That is what is great about social media these days. I will be the first to tweet if I saw for example, Anderson Cooper across the street while having some PinkBerry…wait I did that! It’s just how far you might take it from there that might make a difference. Of course no one wants you to forget about him. We have to many things planned for the future. This is why he worked so hard, even before he made his announcement, to leave things for you to celebrate and discuss while he is away. I do not know what other artist would do that in a “hiatus”. I really hope that all made sense

  301. kimk says:

    @Rosaliah2 I know for some it’s hard not getting his frequent updates like you were all used to receiving in the past, and this might bring some to “search” for things. If you feel this is the right thing for you to do, then do it. If not, don’t! Everyone ultimately has to decide that for themselves. I don’t think anyone said not to talk about him while he is on this “adventure” as he calls it. If a member of the church or someone happens to be there from the area and is at an activity that the church is putting on or saw him somewhere I think it is great they might tweet about it!

  302. kimk says:

    this one is important about blogging.. it is his choice not to.

    @rosaliah2 Right now this is something he feels is not right for him to do. If he ever changes his mind and wants to blog and tell you more I will be there to do that for him, but right now this is still “his time” that he needs and which he requested.The event this past Saturday was a youth activity event for the church and featured missionaries, one of which was Elder Archuleta. This time away remains his, the missionaries, and the people they are reaching out to in that area.

  303. kimk says:

    Candy Kari did tweet I think they are working on it or something like that? hope for a NA DVD too!!

  304. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I like Kari’s tweets. She didn’t come out and say how she interpreted David’s blog, she just said what he said didn’t change, but people will interpret it differently. She did a good job appeasing to all sides. Making us feel OK for sharing info but knowing we’re not invading his privacy, we’re not stalking him and taking pictures in the bushes. We aren’t flying out to the next continent to try and get into his concerts.
    Thank you Kari.

  305. nora says:

    thanks for repeating Kari’s tweet, Kimk.

  306. kimk says:

    Jo Taylor ‏@JoTaylor25
    I still think David Archuleta is such a cutie.  And I just wanna give him the biggest hug ever and a kiss o http://instagr.am/p/Q3mmQQR65e/

  307. kimk says:

    LOL think this is about the debate!

    Andrew Dorogi ‏@ObiWanDorogi
    I haven’t seen this many arguing people since David Archuleta vs. David Cook on American Idol in 2008.

  308. kimk says:

    Janel lol dang we are not!!??
    tell you what though I sure would love to go to the Philippines to see him there.. the fans and all the support are outrageous!
    IT IS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!!

  309. kimk says:

    but that is just a dream.. over $1000 for airfare no way jose!!
    oh and that lil thing called a hubs..

  310. Candy says:

    Janel-thats how I saw it too, she did a good job of staying neutral, I hope once and for all we can stop feeling guilty, or being made to feel guilty if we choose to know things.

  311. kimk says:

    ‘We have to many things planned for the future’…

    what Kari what???!!!

  312. Martha says:

    I am so glad Kari responded. She knows all sides love David and one doesn’t need to be telling the other what to do. None of us are in Chile so we can’t stalk and invade his mission. And those who are there have every right to relay what they’ve seen if they wish to do so.

  313. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Kimk, LOL, no kidding. I was even too poor to fly to AZ last year, only could because I had frequent flier miles on my Amex. Still have one flight left. Using it for my 30 year HS reunion, next year to AZ again.
    But, I hear ya about the Philippines, though don’t relish the thought of going deaf next to all those screaming Pinoy Archies!

  314. Candy says:

    kimk-I wish they would just put us out of our misery of not knowing and tell us what they have planned. Can you imagine the fun and anticipation that would cause…

  315. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Janel Woodbury ‏@Nellie1983

    @kariontour Thanks Kari. I’m feeling you understanding both sides of the coin. Thank you for all you do.

  316. kimk says:

    Janel so expensive to fly these days.. I want to see my boys this Christmas but no way. :(
    wish I could see David more but have only taken a plane to see David once and that was motab and without a doubt a great decision but not in the cards for me. driving is ok so hope he comes to the east coast when he gets back.

    Candy they always keep us hanging but that makes it fun too. or lol not.
    wonder if he has a label lined up.. or maybe some acting roles? :)

  317. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Agreed Candy. Maybe Kari has a information release date in mind. LOL.

  318. Candy says:

    kimk-oh you mean like a movie offer ;)

  319. kimk says:

    Candy or two or more! :wink:

  320. I Think Kari did a great job in her tweet. A lot of questions were more or less answered, on both sides and we can go on with our spazzing, like we were without feeling guilty. We know how to respect Davids wishes. But it’s nice to hear about him too. At least we know hes ok and is happy and singing. He’s got to stay in practice for 2014.

  321. kimk says:

    think this was David and Eula?
    was their first get together?
    wish we had that video!!

    http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/wp-content/uploads/Snapshot-8-1-23-2012-5-02-AM.png

  322. kimk says:

    pleasant dreams guys..

    will we get our pot o gold at the end of the Rainbow!!!

  323. Candy says:

    Night Kim, Im heading out too. Good Night all. There is always a Rainbow after the rain….

  324. blue says:

    kari is so sweet. i hope she’s not regretting agreeing to take care of us while david is away. lol i would not want to be her.

  325. Lucy says:

    I think Kari explained very well also, I never thought there was anything wrong with getting news of David from people who were lucky enough to see and talk to him. It’s nice to know he is doing well, and like Linda said that he still gets to sing and perform, it makes me happy to know that. He worked so hard to make sure us fans are well taken care of and I love him even more for that, we are lucky fans indeed. I am so glad to have FOD and all of you guys to talk too, I look forward to coming here everyday, and I cannot wait to see that Rainbow music video! Goodnite all!

  326. Jackryan, thank you for the cast party videos. Have not seen the rehearsal ones. I will go watch them right now. Did you see my comment at 9:42, if your still here.

  327. LINDA – re the kiss or I should say the non-kiss in NA :) that was David’s preference and decision.

    It would have been perfectly acceptable for Josh to kiss either Anya or Holly and the way I understand it, the original script called for one.

    The best that would have been hoped for was a kiss on a cheek or forehead but given David’s circumstances (going on a mission, never have kissed publicly, etc..) that I think was a hard limit for him as an actor and as a person.

    Also we have to understand that if David has indeed not kissed anyone, I don’t think he is the kind of person who would waste his 1st time on the celluloid screen.

    I hope this helped?

  328. Thank you very much JackRyan. It did help a lot and answered a lot of my questions. Everyone more or less knew that it was probably his decision.

  329. Jhen says:

    Linda- It’s not prohibited to kiss on screen in the Philippines TV series, a lot of Philippines actor and actresses doing kissing scene but mild one on TV, but since Jasmine and Eula still a minor, I think it could probably better no kissing scene on TV, only hug.

  330. Jhen says:

    Linda- David doesn’t want kissing scene, the director and scriptwriter respect David decision and want. They know from the start what David can’t do.

  331. Jhen says:

    Jay Durias is a genius musician, I’m sure remix of Rainbow will be oh sooo good! Can’t wait for Rainbow MV, anytime soon. Awww…. it’s David idea of remix of Rainbow. So David like to dance in faster music lol

  332. Jhen says:

    Kari did a good job. Well, I think there is nothing wrong to get some information about David in Chile, just don’t stalk him when he is doing his mission of sharing gospel or getting some pictures during his services to Christ . If it was a devotional concert or show, I don’t think it is wrong to get some information.

  333. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello FOD! Happy Wednesday!

    GREAT response by Kari! David sure has a SPECIAL person taking care of things while he’s gone! Also LOVE her comment”we have too many things planned for the future!” Meaning the future while he’s gone or after he get back? HOPE BOTH!

    LOVED David and Eula together The both have that innocent but incrediblely gorgeous look! Plus GREAT dimples! Would love to see them do something together in the future!

    THANKS jackryan for the info and vids!
    Nana patrol! ENJOY YOUR DAY! :)

  334. kimk says:

    Good morning folks!
    Happy Wednesday!

    Jackryan thank you for that video!
    haven’t seen that in ages and it was as cute as it was the first time I saw it!
    David was so awkward with Jasmine there.. also seemed a lot more comfy come end of the whole series too.

  335. kimk says:

    McKenzie Harris ‏@McKenzieHarr
    @DavidArchie fans trend “Dancing David Archuleta” & “Rainbow Music Video” when MV is released. 2 WWTT! @jaydurias @jondaza @IvoryMusicVideo

  336. kimk says:

    jon daza ‏@JonDaza
    Hello Archies! Hope to see you all real SOON. Gotta hold on.

  337. kimk says:

    love what Kari said about this new Rainbow remix..
    that it was their theme song and that David recorded a little faster version and then Jay worked his magic.
    guess we will soon see just what Jay and co did with it!!

    hope it is dancy and we can add it to Zero Gravity for future concerts!!!

    @JoyYap it was D’s idea because our driver Sherwin had a remix of Rainbow that even @jaydurias had never heard that we would have Sherwin play over and over again when we were in the van. I would say it was our “theme song” So after talking to Jay, David recorded a different version that has a little faster speed to it and then Jay worked his magic. Not knowing what we would do with it one day.

  338. ksf says:

    Good morning! :) It’s Wednesday already…only a few more days til the weekend. Yes!!

    Enjoyed getting the recap of the debates from last night…both the Presidential and the one in DavidLand. Whatever. Personally I don’t care much about the latter but I must admit I’m tired of hearing about it. It’s all pretty trivial, imo. It just emphasizes that moderation is so critical and when you don’t have it it’s easy to sweat the things that have no bearing in reality. Waaaaay too much energy and time spent on someone else’s life. I’m kicking ODD to the curb and focusing on the things that actually matter, like real life. Lol. I believe that’s what David’s doing.

    Looking forward to the Rainbow vid! :) We’ll actually see David overcoming his shyness and just having fun, at least that’s what it looks like.

    Have a great day! :)

  339. pocoelsy says:

    Kari is such a sweet gal, love her <3

    Thank you JR. for all the links you put up here :)

    Hi Kimk, VaBeach :) A very good morning to you, rainbow just right around the corner :) rub hands together in anticipation :D

  340. kimk says:

    Martha LOL.. love it!!

  341. kimk says:

    ksf enjoying this go around with all things politics.. lol will miss it. ahh..
    hope you visit and at least check out Rainbow.. hoping it is very dancy!!!

  342. ksf says:

    kimk – I definitely will. I’m still a fan but don’t want to be consumed by it. But you bet I’ll be around to check out the vid and get excited about it! :)

  343. kimk says:

    VABeach lol I know.. I am ready to RUMBLE!!!

  344. VaBeachArchie says:

    Martha…Thanks for the link on the stockings! What a GREAT idea!

    RAINBOW MV is just what we need! Something to practice our DANCING to for the TOUR in 2014! No sitting anymore….he wants dancing and DANCING HE’LL GET!

    Jhen….AGREE about Jay Durias! LOVE Nandito Ako…play it EVERY day! Think the two are a GREAT combination!

  345. cq#DA2014 says:

    ksf, you will be missed. As far as stepping back because you want a real life, I can only speak for myself, but I do have a real fun health full life and I still have room to check out these sites and comment, to me it’s what I would put towards a hobby. Stepping away from reality is what makes this so fun for me.

  347. oinkiers says:

    Good Morning Everyone!!

  348. oinkiers says:

    CQ- Agree!!

  349. ksf says:

    Hi cq! I should clarify. It is fun and I do have a real life that is very full as well but as far as ‘kicking ODD to the curb’ — the primary reason I come to this site is not really because I’m a fan of David. Obviously I am (and always will be) but I mostly come to chit chat and hang out with the girls, and Ray. Lol. That won’t change but I will be dialing down the emotional aspect where David is concerned. I feel like my thoughts and attention have a tendency to be focused on David far too often. I’m not physically sitting in front of my computer all day, but I’m constantly on my phone as I’m going through my day. I want to be a “normal” (LOL) fan…In other words, I don’t want Ray to have to turn the hose on me or issue me a straight jacket or admit me to the Archuhospital. So, I will still visit and chat because I love the people but not so often. Am I making sense? I hope so but I’m not sure. A bit tired this morning.

  350. kimk says:

    pocoelsy keep seeing Saturday pop up.. thinking more then a rumor but ready for whenever it does!

  351. kimk says:

    saw Jessica Sanchez will appear on Glee.. happy for her cause I think in general she fits the mold of that show.
    also hoping come 2014 David and team have some US acting or singing things planned too!! any David facetime here bet will help recharge his comeback I think!!
    folks see his face on tv again and.. pop he is back!!

    ohh hoping that this Rainbow MV is more what the folks here like and will embrace it too?
    seeing what 1D & JB are up to it just might be!!
    and I love that!!!!! :D

    Good morning everyone!

    Kimk, Is the new Rainbow Mix going to be released as a single? Can we purchase the MV? Have you heard anything?

  353. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, folks!!! Week halfway thru….means Rainbow MV almost here!
    Love Kari’s tweet!
    Love David and Eula together…..think I’m turning into a Jolly fan now….haha…..
    Took a break watching the NA cast party vids by jackryan…..awesome stuff!
    Love multi-tasking between FOD and real life….takes a lot of practice but I think I got it down now to a science after almost 5 years….haha…..but of course, family comes first! :)

  354. sarahhazel says:

    Munk–no news on that yet.

  356. kimk says:

    Munk that would be great no idea.. yet! did hear a rumor it might be ‘released’ on MYX Saturday and maybe that means we can vote on it? hope so!
    also heard another rumor might be part of a re-packaged Forevermore cd so in that case we would be able to buy it I suppose here in the states thru WOWHD?
    lol guess we will find out!!

  357. Jhen says:

    Hello everyone!
    Va- David and Jay Durias work very well, David even called Jay “My Man”. I think they exchange ideas that they blended each other.
    Martha- what a cute missionaries stocking.
    Kimk- wish David could act too in US, he can showcase his full potential with his acting skills in US, with more audience to capture, since most of the US tv series and US movies sell out to Asia market too.
    I hope NA DVD will be available soon, maybe next year??

  358. kimk says:

    Jhen hope so too.. I know if he puts his foot out there some nationally they will flock right on back to him!!

    lol Sam’s gif.. he was so sleepy there!!
    think that was TOSOD launch day!!

  359. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–I’ve seen a few Southborder music on YT and I like their stuff….love the pop/R&B vibe in them. Are they still a group?

    A NA DVD would be a great treat for the new year.****crossing fingers****

  360. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk, yes Saturday probably is The Day !!! I don’t know if you saw this already but this were my convos with Karina Singh :

    Karina Singh‏@iamMissSingHDJA
    If Myx doesn’t have any problems, the MV will be out on Saturday or next week. It’s an October surprise. :)
    Me :@iamMissSingHDJA You mean @DavidArchie Rainbow MV!!?

    Karina Singh‏@iamMissSingHDJA
    @pocoelsy1 Yes. :)
    So it’s up to Myx to release the MV !!!, we’ll see

  361. Jhen says:

    I learn new word Hunkerdowns!

  362. MunkFOD says:

    Thanks Kimk!

    pocoelsy! YES!!!! Excited! I hope it works out! :D

    I hope you all have a terrific day/evening! Gotta head to work! see ya!

  363. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Yup, he should be on TV when he comes back, doing guest appearances on talk shows, DWTS, talent shows and Glee for national exposure….but he probably will need to have new music/project to get that.

    We all know that won’t be a problem in Asia.

  364. Jhen says:

    sarah- no, they are no longer in a group.

  365. sarahhazel says:

    ….and a new label too.

  366. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy—YESSSSS!!! :)

    Jhen–thanks….so each are probably doing their own (music) thing now…..

  367. kimk says:

    pocoelsy hmm.. never know with MYX guess it depends on the video and since it IS a OPM remix song might have a good chance!!? HOPES!!

  368. Martha says:

    cq 8:21 – same here

  369. kimk says:

    sarahhazel YES a new label.. don’t think he will be doing too much without it. unless that is what he wishes. guess we will see!

  370. Jhen says:

    pocoelsy- hope MYX will have no problem, way to eager to see the Rainbow MV!

  371. cq#DA2014 says:

    ksf, I get it, nice to read you are still with us. I really just joke about ODD because I like what a fun conversation it brings. Even when things get a little “political” I still enjoy reading the comments and joining in the conversation. I guess you could say that following David’s career (and yes, he has an active career going even if he is in hiatus) is a fabulously fun hobby for me.

  372. kimk says:

    WARNING MISSIONARY PIC!!

    http://twitpic.com/b4x219

    is this new?

  373. kimk says:

    I love having ODD.. love it here and love twitter in general.
    lol but I LOVE to gab and spazz so no brainer there!!

  374. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL….I clicked on that pic in a milli-second….haha!
    –looks new to me…..and as usual, I needed my magnifying glass to see him cuz he’s in that little corner again…..LOL

  375. angelbymyside says:

    Hello to all :D

    I feel out of the loop lately on what’s been happening in Davidland. Been so busy with real life but I had a chance just now to read up-thread at the comments. Not to beat a dead horse….but seriously, why do some people feel the need to ask Kari if it is alright if the fans talk about the concert on Saturday night? Now we must ask permission? I also can’t believe some fans weren’t sure if they could listen to the “leaked” song “Don’t Run Away”. I think people are taking this “respect David’s mission” a little too far, imo. How is talking about a mission concert not respecting David? Sorry but I just don’t get it….and probably never will. I for one am grateful for any news or pics of David. This was a public event and people in attendance respected the wishes of the mission organizers not to take photos or videos. Did someone at the event ask the audience not to speak about the event? Of course not!! I also find it odd that people who talk about “respecting David and his mission” were in the chat on Saturday night taking in every last word from Gladys! Hmmmm things that make you wonder!

    Sorry for the rant….but I have always respected David and will continue to do so but I will not feel one ounce of guilt for reading a missionary blog or talking about his appearance in a public event. I just wish that some “fans” would stop putting a guilt trip on the ones who choose to do so.

    :D

    kimk–twin brain….haha!

  379. pocoelsy says:

    Hi Jhen, Sarahhazel, Munk :)
    Ok this is music to my (our ears) “We have too many things planned for the future.” Whatever they are!! I hope they will cater sufficiently to feed our hunger in#2013 !!! they have had served us pretty well in 2012!!! hardly feel the drought :) I don’t mind if NA DVD will drop like mid 2013 !! I think they have to leave some time after the series was aired …like 1-2 years until the DVD can come out !!! but I really dunno ..hehe

  380. kimk says:

    angel all I got is they are young or easily swayed.. or lol bossy. got me but see that stuff all the time on twitter. like last night during the debate.
    power to freedom of speech is all I got and hope in the end Kari knows we love David and her to death and..

    AKK NEVER LEAVES US!!!!!!

  381. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha saw that and woke up big time!!!

  382. sarahhazel says:

    abms–I agree, some peeps are taking it a little too far…..like it’s a big morality issue…LOL…..& worse, making Kari take sides or “set rules” for the fans (?!)…..definitely too much.

  383. It is not up to MYX. It is up to Ivory who has total rights over the material & David’s Team for the timing. Just to manage expectations.

  386. tami lyn says:

    kim~ thanks for that pic! what if he’s in love with one of those girls??!! lol! wonder which one it is???? haha :) good morning everyone!

  387. Martha says:

    kimk – that missionary pic is at the MTC and came out a couple of months ago with
    this one:

    ***MISSION PIC****

    http://youtu.be/PTAmW5buG3Y

  389. kimk says:

    Martha ahh thanks.. he looks so stinkin cute!
    hmm some of those ladies are cute.. just saying. :wink:

  390. Martha says:

    abms – Your welcome – I have to go back and see what I wrote! :)

  391. kimk says:

    tamilyn ha you saw that too.. was like.. hmm…
    rofl hope he waits to get married til after NA 2.0!!!!!!!!!

  392. tami lyn says:

    looks like quite the little impish grin on david’s face!!! too cute! wonder what’s going on?? lol

  393. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ yeah! interesting little convo i saw on twitter yesterday. a few peeps were saying~hope david gets married right after mission so he can start his career fresh with only the fans who do NOT care about his marital status. sure hope they were kidding!!! i think he would lose most of his teen fans if he were to do that :( and if he gives in to pressure from the church then he is not the david i hope he is.

  394. kimk says:

    Martha missed that comment angel was talking about. thanks for posting that.
    love he is doing great and love he is also performing and love his family is ok with it too.

    ha ok would love it even more if a pic or vid of that hat thingy popped up but that is ok too. my minds eye is doing quite nicely imagining it.

  395. angelbymyside says:

    I hope everyone reads the comment Martha posted at 4:30pm yesterday!!! Wish the fans who seem to have a problem with people posting pics of David on his mission (ones that he has posed for or in a public event) could read that comment.

  396. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol didn’t see that and thankfully so. a lot of folks do not like the mix of fans he has and lol I guess it is alright for them if he goes easy listening all the way.
    and as for getting married will not stop me from fangirlling? lol baby I don’t think so.
    I am an equal opportunity spazzer!
    show me some Hugh Jackman gahness and I am all there!!!

  397. Martha says:

    You all probably know this but if you put in Google search “Elder Archuleta” and on the left side choose “Images” you will see about every Mission Pic of David that has come out. :)

    Not bad for thinking we would hear anything from Chile. Sorry Rosaliah.

  398. Jhen says:

    David still look the same, very handsome and clean looking, just a little weight gain.

  399. Martha says:

    **wouldn’t hear***

  400. tami lyn says:

    i have a feeling that this “rosaliah” person is someone we see on twitter all the time(in her regular name) and her rosaliah account is her 2nd account for when she wants to say controversial things. ????

  401. Martha says:

    She didn’t take Kari’s tweets too well

  402. Jhen says:

    Wonder what too many things planned for the future mentioned, acting, concert, album, new label? If David will pursue acting in the Philippines, he surely will be a lead actor.

  403. tami lyn says:

    martha~ yeah just saw that! she still thinks she knows better what david wants! wow, lol

  404. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk,

    Those eyebeows really have a live of their own I swear !!! very flirty eyebrow in “this Christmas” Santa Rosa my fav :)

    David can be and can look really fresh sweet and innocent one minute but don’t turn you head!!! in a split second he’d be flirting like nobody’s business !!! oops can I say this while he’s an Elder serving Mission !!

  405. Candy says:

    OMG Martha-I could kiss you, actually I think I will *Smoochies* I lost four years of David pictures last week, yep every last one, that link is a treasure trove of pictures! Thank you!

  406. Martha says:

    Candy – also, just google David Archuleta and you will get pages and pages of images from his career

    Thanks for the ***smoochie*** , back at ya!

  407. Candy says:

    ABMS-AMEN!!! I saw that too in the chat.

  408. kimk says:

    pocoelsy lol I won’t tell him you did!!

  409. Joanie/suttygal says:

    New post up for Wednesday! Tomorrow we’re celebrating a staple of David’s concert attire in “Ode to the scarf! ” Have you ever given David a scarf? Do you have any favorites that he’s worn over the years? Any concert/scarf memory? Let us know in comments or send them in! :)
    Happy Wednesday everyone!

  410. VaBeachArchie says:

    THANKS everyone for the links to the GREAT pics! NEVER get to see too many of those! Especially NOW!

    Lunch calls!

  411. Candy says:

    OMH-I think I just landed in David images heaven!
    If anyone has a HQ of the one from Matt of David crouching down with the light on his shoulder, can you post a link here. That was my screen saver…thanks.

  412. Martha says:

    abms – thanks, I read family members’ feelings myself. Was so happy to see that! I didn’t write anything because it was on someone else’s page.

  413. oinkiers says:

    Don’t give up………. I can not stop listening to it today for some reason :) !!

  414. Jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- he can easily shift from sweet, innocent to hottie, sexy lol I agree,
    I think he know the art of flirting lol
    The MYX linked that Jackryan gave about meeting Lea Salonga, David face was flashing with excitement while mentioning Lea Salonga.
