Rainbows and the Red Cross

Double Rainbow over NYC tweeted by Dianne Sawyer

The photos of destruction and devastation from Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast are  horrific and unfathomable to those of us enjoying clear peaceful Autumn skies. The wreckage produced in a 24 hour period is material for a  frightening science fiction movie! Heartbreaking damage to beachfront land, and businesses with loss of homes and lives has once again sparked the fortitude and burning of  human spirit and compassion….people reaching out to help others  like the beautiful outstretched arch of a rainbow~

Our FOD family continues to offer sincere thoughts and prayers for all those affected by this storm. Many wonder how they can offer help in the aftermath: To help those affected, you can donate through the Red Cross website or call (800) 733-2767. You can also text the word ‘REDCROSS’ to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions may also be sent to your local Red Cross chapter or the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Click here to donate to the Red Cross.

If you live in or around the East coast, please continue to take care and let us know how you’re doing.~

Smiles and Stardust in Emails

Awww Wonderful tweets yesterday to let us know that David has been able to “connect” a bit leaving stardust and smiles! (Just like David) :)

And a fun/ interesting RT by Lady V of @Kimak’s tweet! :)

But what was in that link that Lady V RT’d ? It was a post on David Archuleta Viet Nam about a recent disclosure by Lady V on twitter !

~~sigh~~ Excuse me while I retreat to my own little world to just dream for a bit! ;)

Kari Answers “Gift Question”

Kari has been receiving questions daily re: Christmas/Birthday gifts for David

Thanks so much to Kari for addressing our questions! So, to clarify, it sounds like our cards should reach the PO box by the last week in November (a few days sooner to be safe) and in lieu of sending gifts this year, it might be a better choice to save your money or to possibly donate to a charity. Incidentally,”Carlen Wirth” the lovely girl in the tweets above, has recently returned from her LDS mission; she speaks from experience. :)

David’s supported charities are found HERE in Kalei’s post.

Send your cards to:

    HApPy HALLOWEEN!! Thanks for the new post! :)

    AHHHH! To get my hands on that Lady V/David song: When Your Heart Falls Out. It sounds KILLER! I’ll pray that contents from THE VAULT will fall upon us once again and that it shalt deliver this precious and blessed morsel of radiant sunshine from which our continued and eternal adoration and praise shall flow unabashedly. LOL.

    tami lyn — Don’t give up on songwriting. Maybe it just takes a little more time and practice.

    Is anyone dressing up for Halloween?

    Good morning, Jhen, Kimk, sarahhazel, Ksf, Frio, tami-lyn, Lucy,joanie, blue, Va beach, Candy, Angelgal3.
    I see that the convo is on liking all songs on cds. Even before i started following David, i very seldom liked all the songs on a certain album, so i would skip over them. For sure Davids first album was the one that i played all the way through because i loved every song. Although i love to hear David sing, i still play all his cds all the way through, but i favor some songs more then others. I love all his xmas songs. It was nice of David to plan ahead for us even on Holloween, Thank you David. Maybe he also has something for is at Xmas time.

    Brought this over from last comments. Great ost this morning, so much to read and see. HAPPY HOLLOWEEN EVERYONE.

  3. pocoelsy says:

    Hello all, Hello Ksf.

    Thank you for sharing my pic here but the real credit goes to Archie Thailand, they posted it of their FB, what a handsome vampire he is !!!
    Happy Halloween everyone :)

  4. pocoelsy says:

    Hello Linda hope you have a great day today, can’t stay it’s raining with thunder storm so have to say bye now, see you.

  5. tami lyn says:

    thanks ksf but i don’t think i have the gift. i kinda believe u either got it or u don’t and i don’t! lol hi linda! happy halloween to u too :)

  6. pocoelsy says:

    Kari Sellards‏@kariontour

    @weiyannn that is the actual picture I took. I just made it look dirty. That is all @DavidArchie wearing mask and all! Just something fun!

    Ok I go for real :)

  7. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    AWESOME post Joanie! Thanks! Jenny and Marcella’s Halloween vids were GREAT! LOVED the SUPER Halloween surprise from David and Team Archuleta …THANKS Kari! So many pics, vids, creations and finds shared by fans sure makes every day in Davidland an adventure! Thank you!

    ksf…That VAULT must be stocked with lots of goodies! Hope to hear When Your Heart Falls Out ….sounds intriguing!

    The chimmy guys are here! ENJOY YOUR DAY! :)

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

    Hi Linda! :) I really miss David’s voice from Idol and his first album. You can see how his singing changed from the first album til now. He sings much higher….and stays there for most songs. It’s natural that his voice has changed as he’s grown up but I think mostly that he chooses to sing in that higher range. Not necessarily a bad thing I guess but I’m with you on loving all the songs on the first album. I say bring back that voice, David.

    Hi pocoelsy :)

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

    tami lyn – I understand. Is this the first song you’ve tried to write?

  10. VaBeachArchie says:

    Happy Halloween Linda, pocoelsy and tami lyn!

  11. sarahhazel says:

    Happy Halloween and Happy 217th day!!! Fantabulous post, Joanie!!!
    LOL…so that’s not a photoshopped pic of D in that gorilla mask…..nice work, Kari!
    Love the Halloween pics and vids….and the D-inspired carved pumpkins!
    Almond looks so scary in that costume…..eeeekkkk!
    Happy trick-or-treating, everyone!!! :)

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

    VaBeachArchie – I’d pay $1,000,000 for access to that vault. I think $2,000,000 would be my limit. :)

    (p.s. I’m hoping to win the lottery soon so I should have the money at about the time when hell freezes over. LOL)

  13. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ no i’ve written lots of stupid stuff! lol but that’s when i had a piano (many years ago)

  14. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–praying we get the songs from the VAULT someday as releases!!!

    tami lyn – lol. Okay. I’ll let you slide then…I was going to say you should still keep trying if it’s your first song.

    sarahhazel – yes. Releases would be awesome! BUT, I will settle for leaks if I have to. It’s not pretty but its the truth…hehe… :twisted:

    Just voted on the People’s Choice noms for “Archies” as the Favorite Fan Music Following because you know that we are!

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

    sarahhazel – no its not better than the gorilla. You can see his nose hairs! :shock:

  21. Va Beach, I would love to hear a sneak peek of WHEN YOUR HEART FALLS OUT.

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

  46. kimk says:

    RJ ‏@RJ0717
    I gotta say I’ve never seen @DavidArchie better looking. Thanks for the photo @kariontour! You captured the real him. BWAHAHAHA (in echo)

    ha RJ is funny!!

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

    I wonder if its hard for David when he hears music playing. Just thinking about what the missionary blogger wrote the other day about how “the enemy” really tried to tempt him with music and movies. I thought to myself, “Movies and music are not sins.” I understand they’re trying to stay focused, to sacrifice, etc…but if you’re not spiritual then you’re not spiritual PERIOD, no matter where you are. It’s not about completely cutting yourself off from the world and thinking, “Now I’m spiritual.” Temptations actually make you stronger, NOT weaker, if you learn to deal with them. But, I digress. Just thinking about how David loves music and was always so excited when new music came out by artists he liked like Bruno and Adele, etc… But, I know he’ll have a blast catching up on all the great music he missed. :)

  48. kimk says:

    sarahhazel I AM EXCITED!!! and bet anything this song is REAL POP TOO!!!!!!!! EMO DAVID FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ha.. back to painting my house.. rofl think I should of hired someone!!

  49. kimk says:

    ohh… what if this is
    A WHOLE CD OF NEW AND PREVIOUSLY RELEASED SONGS!!!!!!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!
    DIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. kimk says:

    OOPS PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONGS!!

    UMM LIKE SENSELESS!!!!!!!!??????????

    do you guys think he will release SENSELESS!!!??????

  51. kimk says:

    ha silly silly RJ!

    NOT!!!!

    RJ ‏@RJ0717
    @kimak @DavidArchie @kariontour Methinks he needs to see Brooke for a haircut. ;)

  52. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I’ll take any releases!!!…..have fun painting….haha!

  53. sarahhazel says:

    RJ’s on a roll! :D

  55. kimk says:

    RJ ‏@RJ0717
    @kimak @DavidArchie @kariontour HAHA I meant his hands are too hairy.

    rofl.. not really getting my painting done!

  56. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–me thinks the same too…….too many restrictions….but that’s the way it is for them…..***SIGH***

  57. Kimk, i sure hope so, That would put the icing on the cake for me to have a new cd of previously released or unreleased songs. But for right now, i just want RAINBOW, RAINBOW, RAINBOW, please!!!!

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

    kimk – WHAAAAAAAAT!!!!!!! I’d give my right pinkie to have SENSELESS and WYHFO released!!!! :shock: :P:

  59. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–you’re not bugging anyone…..you’re awesome…..THANKS!!!

  60. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–ROFL…..why your right pinkie???!

  61. breanne says:

    sarahhazel at 12:26 pm, thanks for telling me that! :)

  62. sarahhazel says:

    Almost forgot about the RAINBOW…..RAINBOW…..RAINBOW!!!!!!!!!!
    We need to get that party started soon!!! :lol:

  63. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–you’re most WELCOME! :)

  64. RJ, you are in the Holloween spirit. You are too much, FUNNY!!!!!

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

    sarahhazel – ***SIGH*** Righteousness is not following a bunch of man made rules that have nothing to do with salvation. The more I read and think about it, David will definitely come back more conservative than before and hey, if that’s what he wants, then fine. I just think it’s sad that people think they’re closer to God because they excelled at “following church rules” for two years while they were hundreds of miles away from home. ***SIGH***

    kimk – I hear ya with painting. If I ever move again I will pay someone to paint! Lol. I just want to move in and unpack. :)

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

    sarahhazel – LOLOL! :P I don’t know. It was the first thing that came to mind! Haha!

  67. blue says:

    i thought the gorilla picture was photoshopped. LOL he actually put that gorilla mask on. that is hilarious!

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

    OMJ I LOVE ADELE!!

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

    Sorry…that was a spasm. Forgot where I was. LOL.

  70. JUST CURIOUS!!! Has anybody here been to another Artist fanbase? And do they have as much fun as we Archies do.

  71. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–More conservative???!…..Yikes!!!……still hope he doesn’t bring that to the STAGE…cuz I’m more than ready for a rockin’, salsa-bachata-fied, ready-to-rumble, hat-throwing, Latino infused swaggah-ing David….NO MORE, NO LESS…..haha!

  72. sarahhazel says:

    Gwen Porea ‏@GwenPo

    @LSCtheliverlady @kariontour@DavidArchie. That was the best night ever!!!! My first time to meet David. http://twitpic.com/b94p3n :):):)<3

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

    I have a question. Has anyone ever tried to set fire to the rain?

  74. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–to another artist’s fan site?…..not really…..haha….. :D

  75. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–is that a trick question???

  76. sarahhazel says:

    ❤Buy BEGIN.❤#DA2014 ‏@Shell_eeeyyy

    People that don’t know me R looking at me funny with my Archuleta gear on;) lol I was going to bring a sign that said I LOVE DAVID ARCHULETA

  77. blue says:

    ksf – i’ve been to lots of different artist’s fanbases/msg boards or whatever. they all have their own feel and their own kind of fun.

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

    Linda – Ummm…sometimes. But, many of the comments might make you blush! :oops:

    sarahhazel – ME TOO! :P I’ll hope for the best but I remember someone the other day posted about a conversation they’d had with a waiter who’d just returned from a mission. They asked him about David and his response was that David will come back more conservative. I know everyone is different but since David is pretty low key and conservative by nature, it figures that he will feel that it isn’t too spiritual to be gyrating and moving his lil’ hips like that. LOL. He’ll probably hold back on the swagga. No Enrigque moves….sorry kimk :cry:

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

    Enrique, that is. Lol.

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

    blue – that was Linda who asked that question.

    sarahhazel – not really. I just figure since Adele did it then somebody else probably has too. Lol. I’ve never tried it so I don’t know what it’s like…both literally and figuratively.

  81. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–LOL….no Enrique-esque/Elvis-esque gyrating is fine with me…..he has his natural smexy moves….it will come out without him even knowing it, that’s for sure…..haha!

  82. Well all i can say is time will tell. And i will say again, David is full of surprises. Hoping for one when he returns.

  83. blue says:

    ksf and linda – oh sorry. too much multitasking going on here. lol

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

    sarahhazel – you are sooo right! That’s whats so endearing about him: He’s hotter than a twelve alarm fire and doesn’t even know it!! Maybe that’s a good thing cuz’ then his head might get bigger than JB’s and that would be QUITE a feat! LOL.

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

    blue – that’s okay. :) I haven’t been very successful with the “multi” part today myself so you’re doing much better than I.

  86. Thanks Ksf and blue for answering my off the way Question.
    Curiosity killed the cat. This Cat isn’t ready to go yet.

  87. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–you said it….haha!….he doesn’t even try and it shows naturally…..not sure but I’ve been thinking he has a double personality & it takes over every time he gets on stage! :lol:

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

    Linda – you’re welcome :)

    sarahhazel – like Beyonce’s Sasha Fierce alter ego. What should we call David’s other personality?

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

    sarahhazel – I would say Enrique Jr. but that’s not quite right. Lol.

  90. sarahhazel says:

    My hubby called and said he almost hit a deer on the way to work early this morning….but instead hit something else and now he has to get the front of the car repaired….but he’s OK….thank goodness.

  91. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–LOL….nothing comes to mind right now….think I’m not good at this!

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

    sarahhazel – oh wow! I’m glad he’s okay. I can’t imagine hitting a deer or almost hitting one. So dangerous and scary. There was a woman killed last year in the middle of the afternoon when she hit a deer. There are deer here where I live, about 20 minutes west of downtown Atlanta so I’m always a bit nervous when I’m driving in certain areas.

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

    sarahhazel – I’ll keep thinking. Maybe something will come to mind. :P:

  94. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–I know…pretty scary and there could be deadly consequences esp. at a high rate of speed.

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

    What about Rico? (you have to roll your tongue on the ‘R’ — Rrrrrico). lol

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

    sarahhazel – LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! OMJ! Delicious Daytona??? I LOOOOVE IT!!! :P :P

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

    LMBO! So…a little quiz: Is the person in this video David OR Delicious Daytona?

  100. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    sarahhazel – please observe my new name.

  101. Looking in says:

    Kinda sorry I “looked in” today :( .

  102. Candy says:

    ksf-LOL a litle afternoon delight from David…plus the two-buttons undone shirt. Im sure he didnt have a clue about either!

  103. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Looking in – If you’re sorry you “looked in” then so I am I. :(

  104. Candy says:

    uh oh what did I miss…why are you sorry you looked in…

  105. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–Where’d you find Delicious Daytona???….the one I tried at 1:14 gave me——
    “Loose Goose L—–r” , scary to write the last name here but it’s this guy’s name: :evil:
    Now, that can’t be David’s alter ego!!!

  106. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Then again…maybe I should learn how to form a sentence before responding. LOL.

  107. Candy says:

    All I saw was a scary but adorable gorilla and deliicous daytona serenading us…lighten up peeps. The is enough to fret about in the world, take a look around NJ/NY.

  108. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Candy – lol

    sarahhhazel – Oh no! Was it the wrong site? I clicked on the second link you posted and put in David’s name.

  109. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–that video is certainly Delicious Daytona! :lol:
    BTW…..I like your new name….LOL…..are you keeping it? ;)

  110. sarahhazel says:

    Looking in–???????

  111. Candy says:

    Bwhahahahaah- I got “Silky Shalanda” at least they got the hair right!!! too funny!

  112. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Candy – yeah, David is full of surprises today, apparently! LOL

  113. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–really?….the 2nd link?…..well, this is creeping me out this Halloween day…yikes!!!

  114. Candy says:

    Hmmm -The Pres just few over my house…

  115. sarahhazel says:

    Candy—ROFL….then maybe we should go with Delicious Silky Daytona?! :lol:

  116. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    sarahhazel — ding! ding! ding! You are correct! That is certainly Delicious Daytona that a lucky fan captured on video. Haha! I think I will keep the name…at least for now. It has a silly ring to it that just suits me.

    Candy – bahahahahahahaha! Silky Shalanda?? Work it, girl!!!

  117. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–The President passed by your house? :eek:

  118. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Candy – oh, wait! Did you put your name in or David’s?

  119. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    I wish the Prez would come my way. I’ve got some thangs to say…good thangs! :)

  120. sarahhazel says:

    Shalanda reminds me of Shaneyney….that outrageously funny character on The Martin Lawrence Show from years past…..(love that show and I love ML)

  121. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–maybe you forgot to put in “Male” that’s why Shalanda came up. LOL

  122. Candy says:

    sarahhazel-Yes, the Pres is here in South jersey to visit the shore towns, his helicopter just flew over.
    ksf-I put in Davids…

  123. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    sarahhazel – LOL. You won’t believe this but my middle name is Shaney. Not kidding!

  124. sarahhazel says:

    I haven’t seen any U.S. president in person.

  125. Candy says:

    ROTF- I used the second link, wasnt a choice for M/F just to enter a name so David became Silky Shalanda! Ha, personally I liked him better as Delicious Daytona!!

  126. kimk says:

    lol you guys..

    David and gorillas.. got a theme going!

    http://youtu.be/vNgabCxasr4

  127. sarahhazel says:

    ksf, I mean Juicy–get out of here!!!….really?…..what a koingkiding, huh?! :lol:

  128. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Candy – oh for some reason I thought you put in YOUR name (like, um, someone else I know). LOL. I’m really off my rocker today it seems but that’s even funnier. Maybe sarah’s right and you clicked female instead of male? Too funny!

  129. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–oops, sorry….you’re right….no choice for M/F on that one.

    Oh, so the Prez is visiting the areas today…..

  130. kimk says:

    lol David in a closet.. with a gorilla.

  131. Juicy jubilee, I like it Ksf. Keep it for a while.

  132. Candy says:

    The Pres arrived aboard Air Force One but hopped in a helicopter with Gov Christie to fly over the coastline…or whats left of it.

  133. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    sarahhazel – yeah it is!! Fortunately though no one actually calls me Shaney. Thank goodness! :P

    Candy – yeah I like Delicious Daytona. It’s a keeper.

  134. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–good memory!….forgot about the gorilla on that vlog!

  135. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    kimk – lol :P

    Linda – I like it too. I think David would approve. Lol.

  136. EH MV is still #5 on Myx top 10 and 20

  137. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    This has been fun! I hate to leave but gotta get ready for the little one to come home from school. BBL :P

  138. sarahhazel says:

    Juicy–how do you pronounce Shaney?….like Sheigh-knee?…..cuz Shaneyney is Sha (short a)-neigh-neigh.

  139. Candy says:

    ROTF-David in a closet with a gorilla…the man of many surprises!

  150. davidfan says:

    ksf read your comment above and felt the need to respond. I hope it comes across the way I mean it, which is just to explain what I think, and not to offend you or anyone. (crossing fingers)
    Missionaries do a lot more than “follow church rules.” They learn more about loving and serving their fellow man and God. They learn humbleness. They learn selflessness. They pray a lot. They depend on the Lord for help and guidance. They learn to accept the differences between us and yet realize we are all very much the same. They work hard, face rejection, and sacrifice much for what they believe in. They come to love the people they are serving. If they put their heart and soul into this, as David will surely do, they come back as stronger, more compassionate, and more mature men and women.
    I have so much respect for David and who he already is, and for his desire to continually try to be a better person. He inspires me to try to be better too.
    Would David be a wonderful person if he hadn’t gone? Yes! Did I personally (and probably selfishly) want him to go? No! Am I glad he followed his heart? Yes! He made this decision for himself and because his motives are pure, he will come home with a whole new depth of love and compassion. He has always wanted to have this experience and now will be able to go on with no regrets. I am happy for him.
    I know that everyone here loves and respects him too. Peace.

    I got an email from Pam Pike asking for money in the UK so I chedked it out and just found out her email was hacked into so disreguard the email if you get it.

    pamela pike‏@pikepss

    So sorry everyone but my yahoo account has been hacked! Please disregard emails requesting funds!

  152. ksf says:

    davidfan – No offense taken at all. :)

  153. Candy says:

    davidfan-very well said. I think where the difference comes in is being LDS and understanding and having grown up with the rules of the church and being on the outside looking in and not understanding. I took that as what ksf was trying to say. I for one get the following his heart, I dont think he would have been able to be happy had he not. Do understand it all…heck no.

  154. pam05 says:

    Just wanted to drop by and say hello, I hope everyone it doing well, my brain is fried so I need to get off the computer. Have a good day all :)

  155. supergrandjudie#da2014 says:

    Hi evrryone. I am

  156. davidfan says:

    Candy,There are things I don’t understand too.
    Will he be more conservative like that waiter thought? Is that even possible? LOL The waiter obviously didn’t know David like we do and just who David was before he left. And if it is possible, David is still David, and will loosen up as far as David can loosen up. He already kills me when he is on stage so all he has to do is keep on doing whatever that is that he does. :)

  157. davidfan says:

    ksf, Thanks. (whew)

  158. kimk says:

    pam05 hi!!!! :))))

  159. kimk says:

    umm what no Enrique 2.0!!? :D

  160. SGJ!!!! HI! missed you. glad your ok.

    I understand too Davidfan. I believe everything will come back to David once he gets on stage. As far as his personal life he has always kept that to himself when he can. I’m glad he followed his heart, even though i miss him.

  161. ksf says:

    davidfan – Haha! :) Guess its possible to state our thoughts peacefully after all. And I completely understand the amazing life lessons that missionaries learn. I really do. I also understand that the church’s “rules” are to keep people from being losing their hearts for God…kind of like rules to keep you from breaking the real “rules” (God’s laws). The issue is that people fear not having God’s blessing if they don’t follow the CHURCH’s rules, though that’s untrue. That missionary blog from the other day is a good example. Apparently they were told that they didn’t have any “investigators” because they were “disobedient.” Disobedient to whom? The mission president. Anyway, all of this is moot because it is what it is. In the end, like you, I look forward to David returning and moving forward happily. :)

  162. Candy says:

    davidfan-if he comes back more conservative…we will be looking at President Monson 2.0. No disrespect meant just that he is uber conservative now. And thats not a bad thing. He hated his voice, his looks, thought girls had cooties, drew clothes on a shopping bag, recoiled when a girls leg touched his…more conservative…oh boy. :)

  163. ksf says:

    kimk – LOL. I don’t think we’ll be seeing 2.0 but who knows?? He may want to let his hair down after being so quiet for two years… ;)

  164. Martha says:

    I will no longer post missionary blogs here if I come across them

  165. Candy says:

    it brings it all back to…really dude…two years??? LOL

  166. Candy says:

    Martha??? WHY?????

  167. Candy says:

    the more conservative comment didnt come from a blog….it was from a missionary who had been there, done that. *getting out my toilet cleaning brush*

  168. ksf says:

    Candy – I’m with you. I just think about how that will affect his music. He may decide to go the inspirational route, feeling that that’s where he fits. Will he still feel comfortable singing about secular things? And, if that’s what he wants that’s fine but I’ll definitely miss the old David at that point. I know that other artists, like Benton Paul, have gone on missions and returned to sing pop, etc…but as you said, he’s already conservative as it is.

  169. ksf says:

    Martha – I don’t see how anything in the missionary blogs are having a negative affect. The general information about a missionary’s life can easily be found in other places. The more conservative story is from someone’s post here on FOD, not a blog.

  170. ksf says:

    I’ve got some toilet cleaning to do as well I guess. :shock:

  171. Candy says:

    sighhhh pretty soon we wont have to worry about posting blogs here…there wont be anyone left to read them! Come to think of it, I came here today of all days to find something to take my mind off the fact half my state washed away and now lies in ruin.

  172. Martha says:

    Candy – Because I post the link to a blog even though I would rather post only the reference to David which I am not allowed to do. Never intended for the young man who wrote the blog to have his beliefs and personal thoughts discussed. Really should be his and his family’s business. They should not be discussed on a David fansite. My own conscience, no one else’s opinions, leads me to do this. Should have stopped before now.

    I’m sure someone else will post them so not to worry. Peace out.

  173. Candy says:

    Im tired of getting chastised! Later!

  174. kimk says:

    just read on WOW_HD that the release date is Nov 19?

  175. kimk says:

    I’ll post them if I find them.. doesn’t bother me one way or the other about all this.
    just a fangirl here.

  176. ksf says:

    Martha – I understand. You have to do what your conscience dictates. You’re right. It is kind of hard to post something and then expect that people won’t discuss it. I get it completely.

  177. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–What??? No mish blogs???…..pics too???….Noooooooo!!!

  178. ksf says:

    I understand that some people don’t want to discuss or even mention anything concerning religion but really that’s just not gonna happen. Lol. When an artist decides to walk away from his career for two years you can bet the circumstances of that hiatus will be discussed, ESPECIALLY on a fan site. To have any other expectation is just unrealistic. The same goes for ANYTHING that is posted in a public forum on ANY topic. People are going to talk about it.

  179. sarahhazel says:

    kimk @4:19–OK, thanks. :)

  181. Sarahsmom says:

    I think that no one knows what David will be like when he comes back not even David. I have know many young men who have gone on missions and most of them bounce back to the way the were before their mission in a few weeks. The 2 missionaries that are serving in our ward now are a good representation of what a missionary should be but neither of them are as conservative as David was before his mission. I think David being so conservative is not as much about the church and more that it is just who he is.
    Sorry I think that this might be a long post.

  182. Sarahsmom says:

    My friends nephew is serving in the same mission as David, his blog has been posted on this site before. I asked what he thought about his pictures and blog being viewed by Davids fans and they said he thought it was great. He said he and David run into each other often and David is humble and kind, and just like the other missionaries in their area.

  183. sarahhazel says:

    Sarahsmom–thanks for sharing that! :)

  184. kimk says:

    Sarahsmom just think he will be David. also think he will be itching to get back on stage.
    ha now do I hope for a lil salsa, R&B soul and that Spanish flare
    heck yeah!
    know it is in him!!

    yikes sad about not getting FEE until the end of Nov.
    hope we get the Rainbow MV on his account!!!
    need it!!

  185. kimk says:

    Sarahsmom ohh.. got the scoop on anything fun stuff?

  186. Martha says:

    Candy – really wasn’t directing by comments toward you at all. Reading ksf going through other statements in the young man’s blog made me realize these really aren’t meant for our eyes; he is writing to his family. If just the statement referring to David was posted, there is no identifying the person who wrote the blog, even though we don’t know them personally. (I guess really the statement about David is their personal opinion too.)

    My statement was more of a chastisement of myself. If you all don’t agree thats fine. I just feel like its something I have to do.

    The blogs are easy to find so its not a big deal.

  187. Sarahsmom says:

    Kimk I agree I think that he will be ready to get back on stage!! Lucky US!!!!
    Bring on the Salsa, with a side of R&B soul and a whole lot of Spanish flare.
    SarahHazel- :)

  188. Sarahsmom says:

    Not anything now, but she knows about my ODD so she said she would let me know. Her nephew did say that David is always happy!

    Sarahsmom I think he is just who he is too. He is unique. I think he will be fine. He really started out in a different place than a lot of kids that go so I think the difference will actually be less. That is what I was trying to say. Some kids were not in the same place as David before he left so I think he will still just be the David we know and love.
    Martha, Did I do something wrong talking about religion? I think we should be able to talk. I guess I don’t know the rules.

  191. davidfan says:

    Martha, Just read a later comment from you I think I understand what you meant now.

  192. Sarahsmom says:

    Davidfan I agree! Happy Halloween everyone.

  193. kimk says:

    Sarahsmom lol thanks.. well that is David.. Happiest Camper on the Planet!
    never saw anyone like him. gosh
    find it so interesting.. folks of all ages, ways of being are so enamored by this young man.
    love it!

  194. davidfan says:

    Love it too

  195. josie says:

    Geesh, how many conversations can we have going simultaneously? You’d think it’s Halloween or something….:)

  196. Martha says:

    davidfan – sorry, I wasn’t clear. In the missionary blogs which I have posted, they mention David. They also have their thoughts about what they are doing day to day, alot of which is religious in nature. They discuss their beliefs, goals, alot of which we may not agree with. In my opinion, these personal beliefs are not what we are here to discuss. If anyone thinks they are fair game, thats ok. If you get mad at me, thats ok too. We all think differently and have our own opinions.

    Sorry for not being clear – its a decision concerning my own actions, not anyone else’s.

  197. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–yes, he is the HCOTP! :D

  198. glitter*girl says:

    i’m still confused about the gorilla pic!!! so back in april before he left, kari said~ here put this gorilla head on and then i’ll tweet this on halloween. or what??? i don’t get it.

  199. ksf says:

    davidfan – just for clarification — when you say they’re not in the same place as David, do you mean that they’re at a different place spiritually? Or, do you mean that they are not as conservative to begin with?

  200. ksf says:

    If something is posted publicly I do believe its fair game to discuss so I agree Martha that if you don’t feel comfortable posting something in a public forum then you shouldn’t. Let people find it on their own…and then discuss it. Lol. That way your conscience is totally clear.

  201. kimk says:

    well the price dropped for FEE to 12.17 but yup it now says Nov 19 instead of Nov 5! :(

  202. josie says:

    Candy~ I am truly sorry about the hurricane. I’ve never been near one, so I don’t know what it’s like. I’ve been in towns demolished by F5 tornadoes, though. My good friend almost died in one. More than 1 yr. later, they’re just starting to recover. I hope peeps throughout the country really pitch in to help you guys, instead of trivializing it & moving on in one day.

  203. sarahhazel says:

    I’m not liking WowHD right now…..first, they said Nov. 5 at 14.99, then dropped it to 13.99 the next day…now, it’s Nov. 19 at 12.17….WTH are they doing?! :mad:

  204. davidfan says:

    There are a lot of good kids out there and a lot of good kids go on missions. However, without insulting any of those good kids, I really think that David is very mature spiritually He is perhaps more serious about what is important in life, more reflective, (i.e.-Chords of Strength) and yes, more conservative than many of his peers are before their missions. He just wants to be good. His Dad said he was born that way.
    I still say he is very unique person. Heck, I wouldn’t be a fan if he wasn’t something special. If he had been just another 17 year old guy on AI I would be long gone. By the way, I miss him and that smile. :)

  205. davidfan says:

    That comment was in answer to ksf

  206. davidfan says:

    Funny, I didn’t even mention his voice! That voice!!!!! There is nothing like listening to him sing. I feel his spirit when he sings, you know?

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well. The storm damage has been heart breaking, but so many wonderful people & stories of great love & sacrifice, effort & risk, kindness & strength, truely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank You for your comments sarahsmom & Davidfan :grin:

    Who knows what David will be like when he gets back. More conservative, maybe for a week or two, until he gets back to a normal routine, his normal. May I remind you all of that little concert he gave in Chile, not to long ago, singing eye of the tiger while punching, kicking, singing with a hat, etc….. Davids taste in music is so vast, I could never imagine him singing inspirational/religious songs only, no way. There is great joy, sorrow, love, fun, desire, caring, all the emotions found in all kinds of music. David was taking more chances, saw changes in him before he left, thats not going away. When we get word David is back, you better fasten your seatbelts, because David is going to blow our collective plaid socks off, just you wait & see :grin:

  211. angelbymyside says:

    glitter*girl ~ Maybe we’ll get a pic of David dressed like Santa for Christmas ;)

  212. angelbymyside says:

    Well FEE will be here in time for my birthday. Woo Hoo!!!

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

    Hey glitter*girl! No big mystery, David, being the thoughtful guy he is, thought about a Hello for Halloween, put on a mask & furry hands,lol, had a pic taken, for Kari to post at Halloween. Truely incredible how thoughtful he is to the fans, dont know of another celebrity who would think to do that. Who knows what else he has up his sleeve :grin:

  214. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–love that spirit! :D….thanks….but…I don’t have any plaid socks….so I’m gonna borrow a pair from you, OK?! ;)

  215. angelbymyside says:

    well i was going to comment on the missionary blog….but on second thought

  216. josie says:

    sarah~ lol. I was just gonna say the same thing about the socks… I don’t want to borrow any, though. That’s quite OK. lol.

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

    sarahhazel, lol, no problem, the Fine Feathered Fellows have plenty of plaid socks, providing your shoe size is .05 :lol:

    Well, just got a call, my cousins daughter just had her baby, a little girl, a nine pounder :grin: So thrilled :grin:

    Hey abms! In time for your birthday, you mean your 29th birthday(again :lol: )

  218. glitter*girl says:

    beth & angel
    ~ yeah with everything that was going on just thought it was strange that kari or david would have even thought about halloween! yeah it’s amazing! ! :)

  219. josie says:

    Beth~ “a nine-pounder”…is she a fish? lolol.

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

    Hey Josie, not a problem with the socks, the Fine Feathered Fellows have never before worn plaid socks, they say they want back ups for their back ups for their backups :lol: They fret over the thought of no plaid socks :shock:

    abms, You go ahead & talk about anything you want :grin: People can talk about what they want & dont have to talk if they dont want to(not saying to go against FOD rules, mind you), say what you want :grin:

  221. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ No… my perpetual 21st birthday ;)

    glitter*girl ~ I wonder if they thought about all the upcoming holidays David would miss with us….we may have some surprises coming our way!

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

    Josie,lol, yes she is, just didnt wanna say,lol. Cant wait to see her. My mom, aunts & I went to a few craft sales this past Saturday & I bought her this little sweater, its white with pink, yellow & blue specks in it, looks like confetti, its adorable. I dont have any kids, my biggest regret, but I’ll tell you if I did have kids, I would’ve needed a part time job for each one, just to buy their clothes :grin:

    glitter*girl, yes it is :grin:

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

    abms, Oh, my sincere apologies, didnt mean to suggest you were going to be 29 when you’re only going to be 21 :grin: You dont look a day over…………………… :roll: …………………ummmmm…………………. :grin:

    Hey kimk!

  230. glitter*girl says:

    x-factor is on in case u guys didn’t know!!!

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

    gotta go for a bit, will try to check in later, Ciao!

  232. Thumper says:

    Just hopping out of lurkdom to add a bit to the discussion. Having 2 kids of my own return from missions this past year, I have to say that every missionary is different–how they handle the experience, and how they adjust when they return home. As far as my 2 children (a boy and a girl), after returning home, I noticed they were far more comfortable in their skin compared to when they left . They were more confident as to who they were and where they were going. They were more willing to try new things and spread their wings…having been exposed to entirely new cultures and people. They were happier and more aware of others needs and less judgmental. Yes, it did take a week or so, but they were the same wonderful children who had left 2 years earlier…and yet more so.

  233. ksf says:

    davidfan – There are a lot of good, spiritually mature kids in general. I’m fortunate to know some of them. :) I agree that David is conservative by nature, but I also think the mission may enhance that even more…or not. Whatever the case I’m eager to see how it affects his music and his confidence. I hope to see Delicious Daytona.

  234. ksf says:

    Thanks Thumper. :) Didn’t see your comment before my last post. Guess we’ll have to wait and see the person that David brings back.

  235. tami lyn says:

    i think the only thing that will destroy david’s career is if he comes back and gets married right away.

  236. sarahhazel says:

    Thumper–Wow, 2 kids returning from their missions the same year….you must be so happy having them back home….and it’s nice to know that they seem to have become better persons from the experience. This makes me even more excited to see David when he comes back. Thanks so much for sharing.

  237. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–LOL…alter ego Delicious Daytona on-STAGE for me….but off-stage he can go back to his basic David self….haha…. ;)

  238. kimk says:

    Delicious Daytona?? is that David?

    tamilyn you still like him if so?

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

    Hello Again!

    Hey tami_lyn, getting married whether its 5 minutes after he returns, 5 days, 5 months, 5 years, its not going to hurt Davids career. Yes, some girls may be disappointed, but he will gain more, lots more, as people, including guys, will see him more as an adult, ok to like him, instead of the boy with the great voice on AI, also perceived as a teen idol. It wont hurt him at all. I know you have this big concern about it, dont sweat it. Davids voice, heart & character cant be denied, everything will work out. I, for one, have no doubt :grin:

    Thanks for your comment Thumper, its appreciated :grin:

  240. tami lyn says:

    who is delicious daytona???!!

  241. sarahhazel says:

    kimk, tami lyn–that’s David’s alter ego name…..if you “page up” this thread (at 1:14)….you will see how we got that name! ;)

  242. glitter*girl says:

    oh ok! lol thanks

  243. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–it started when we were discussing how David seem to morph into a different person when he’s performing on stage…..so we went from talking about Beyonce’s Sasha Fierce….then to Delicious Daytona to Silky Shalanda (courtesy of Candy)…then back to Delicious Daytona….haha!

  244. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – LOL…Delicious Daytona can appear anytime he likes. On or off stage is fine by me but I think he craves the spotlight so I’m sure he’ll stay on stage.

    tami lyn – I think David getting married will affect his career but whether its positive or negative remains to be seen. For info on Delicious Daytona read up thread. Lol.

  245. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–what if DD decides to take over David for good???! :eek:

  246. donna says:

    I wouldn’t wait til tomorrow to order from WOWHD. They are having a 13% off one-day sale. ends midnight edt.

  247. tami lyn says:

    LOL thanks u guys! is this delicious guy a real person or like an imaginary cartoon? i clicked on the link but it took me to an app thingy?? i think if david gets married it will be negative effect definitely! cuz he’s the kind of person who would focus on his marriage and family, not on touring and meeting fans etc.

  248. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – hahaha! Watch out world!! :P They do say that the more dominant personality can sometimes take over…

  249. tami lyn/ says:

    and i agree, he’s like a normal down to earth sweet guy off stage and when he gets on stage he turns into a sexy maniac/rock~pop superstar! lol it’s freaky LOL! but yeah. love it!

  250. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–sexy maniac???….ROFLLLLLLLLLL

  251. glitter*girl says:

    sarah~ yes! he knows how to move and flirt!!! :)

  252. LurkeyTurkey says:

    What is wrong with mentioning another missionary’s blog? What am I missing in this discussion? If someone posts something on a blog that anyone can read wouldn’t that person expect it to be read and even possibly discussed by “outsiders”? If I wanted total privacy for my thoughts I would text or email the people I wanted to reach. JMHO. I am amused by the discussion of David’s coming home more conservative. Is that possible? If he were Roman Catholic he would probably join a monastery and live up on a hill in seclusion so I am kind of happy he’s LDS even though I don’t get their rules etc as much as I maybe should. LOL

  253. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–dominant?….hmmm, that wouldn’t be so bad…LOL…..but then I will miss David for sure…..so never mind, I think I don’t like the idea of DD taking over!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Guess I’ll say G’night. Please dont worry.
    I know we still have a bit of a wait until David
    returns & speculating is part of the deal, but,
    David has music in his blood, its a part of him.
    Yes his family will be most important, but David
    is a great multi-tasker. Please, lets focus on all
    of the wonderfulness in Archuville, David left us so
    many gifts, in part because he cares about the fans &
    he also cares about his career & music, in general.
    HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL OF YOU(enter pumpkin
    face here :grin: )

  255. Candy says:

    LOL-the one comment above mentions David going into a monastery, the one above that mentions him being a sexy maniac!! Ha, blame it on the full moon!

  256. sarahhazel says:

    Take care, Beth and Goodnite!

  257. sarahhazel says:

    Didn’t know it’s still a full moon….LOL

  258. tami lyn says:

    candy~ did your area lose power? is it all back on now?

  259. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–it comes naturally to him….bet he’s not even aware of the effects of those moves….haha! ;)

  260. tami lyn says:

    beth- yes i’m sure he can multi-task but he is focusing on one thing now and if he got married i think he would be the same way with that. hope i’m wrong!!!

  261. Candy says:

    Tami-I have power, lost it for about 24 hours, but many, many parts of shore towns dont and still have restricted entry.

  262. ksf says:

    LurkeyTurkey – LOL! I’m glad he’s not Catholic then. :P

  263. tami lyn says:

    sarah~ yes, i’m sure he has no clue how sexy he is onstage. i doubt he watches the YT videos of his own performances but if he did then he would know! LOL!

  264. tami lyn says:

    candy- so glad u have power back! can’t imagine what it must be like for all the people who don’t :(

  265. kimk says:

    ha well he is a hairy beast!!!

  266. Hi! everyone, just got home from my trunk a treat at church. Loved seeing all the kids in thier costumes. Some very original They were having so much fun.

  267. kimk says:

    Lurky Turkey got me why not.

  268. tami lyn says:

    david archuleta is proof positive that u can be a devout christian and super sexy at the same time! :)

  269. Candy says:

    What I guess I have a hard time understanding is why…if they have things planned, would they not want to throw fans a bone to keep them interested. They dont have to give specifics, just say he will be touring in 2014…or whenever.

  270. Candy says:

    watched X factor for the first time…what is Demi’s problem, she comes across like she doesnt have a brain cell…Im guessing Simon is going to promote Emblem 3 as the replacement for 1D. I wasnt impressed!

  271. LurkeyTurkey says:

    Candy, do you think maybe things are planned but very tentative so that’s why they won’t/can’t say anything? Maybe he will feel like a long rest among family and friends when he returns, maybe he will feel like jumping back in right away? I have read accounts of returning missionaries who jump right back into the swing of life and accounts of some who need 6 months to readjust. I’m not sure what I want to be doing in 18 months so maybe someone who is living the way he is now, pretty much only thinking and feeling religion with no outside life might not be sure what he wants to do right when he gets back to regular life. All purely speculation of course.

  272. Ali says:

    Candy – my guess on not giving specific is they don’t want to say something that they can’t guarantee. Sure, there may be plans to tour but I’d say nothing will be set in stone until David is back. I keep thinking back to all the times David was questioned just before and right after TOSOD was coming out about touring and he said yeah but then we all know what happened. So I’d say they’re just being safe by waiting until they have something actually planned.
    I think we’ve gotten plenty of hints that David is welcome back with TV5 and Sony Asia when he returns too but no specifics. Maybe the hints are our bone? lol idk. Although they did give away a pair of tickets and M&G passes to David’s first show upon return for SU2C. I like that hint :D

  273. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – I agree. Lol. I think Delicious Daytona’s home should be on stage only. :) Makes it much more exciting!

    Good night everyone! :)

  274. Candy says:

    Lurkey- Could be, not sure of anything…I guess there is so much speculation in part as David is the first celebrity missionary…ever! Regardless of whether he wants to have this “normal” experience, nothing about it is normal. Other missionaries that serve dont have fans waiting for them, Moms, dads, siblings, sure…but not fans or a possible career. Makes me wonder why Donny didnt serve of Jimmer…did they see a bigger picture then David about being gone.? Just all questions that are part of the speculation.

  275. Ali says:

    LurkeyTurkey – haha! You posted your comment while I was still typing. I can see what you’re saying too. I don’t know David personally so I can’t say for sure but my feeling is that he’ll get back into work things fairly quickly after returning. I’m not saying the next day or anything lol but I think he’ll feel strongly about getting things started for the fans. Not that I think he should rush as soon as he gets back but we all know how hard David works and how moved he has been by so many fans saying they will stick with him through this. I think because of that he’ll feel compelled to get going fairly quickly. But, like I said to begin with, I’m only making assumptions.

  276. Candy says:

    Hi Ali-If they dont have definite plans in the works how could they offer tickets and VIP to a future concert like they did.

  277. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Beth, you said what I was going to say. If “Eye of the Tiger” at a mission devotional isn’t proof of what we’ll get when he comes home, I don’t know what is. His music is very diverse. I sincerely love David’s mission president that he is utilizing David’s talents to touch the hearts of members and non members alike. Bravo!
    I’ll share the blog links. There’s a reason we put a warning on them here, not only are we supposed to, but it also tells the potential viewer they can choose to click or not.I think it’s unavoidable to never talk about them….ever. But, respect Martha’s decision to not be the one to share them. Hugs Martha!
    I know there have been some heated discussions on here about the LDS church including to the extent of questioning David’s decision and our beliefs. I’ve been right in the thick of them. I wish I could convey even an ounce of why he made the decision to go. I’ve never been on a mission so I can’t totally understand what it’s like, but as someone who is LDS, I know what we are taught and that it’s expected to go on a mission, expecially for young men. So, for a young man to make that choice, it’s more like a given. But make no mistake as David said himself, it was not forced on him, he wasn’t been urged by the church or leaders that he was supposed to do it, but something that was done with considerable thought and prayer as is the case for anyone who chooses to serve a mission. He felt he needed to give this time to God and the people he serves in Chile. I wish it was easy for everyone to accept but I realize it’s not.
    Maybe think of how many years you lived your lives before you knew David compared to how many you’ve known him and been a fan. 2 years is a drop in the proverbial bucket. None of us know completely what the future will hold for David except he will do music. It is his career choice. How he brings us that music and what type is to be determined. However, each of us know of ourselves whether we will be here to wait and be along for the ride. He’s excited to bring back the person he’s going to become. I am too!
    Nellie raises hand way up high and yells “Me, I’ll be here!!!”

  278. LurkeyTurkey says:

    Candy, interesting about “seeing the bigger picture”. I have wondered why he never realized how many people he touched by being “him” while being a celebrity in the public eye. I used to wonder why he didn’t build on his celebrity to become more influential regarding charities etc. Heck, I wonder to this day why he maybe couldn’t see that living a pure life in the public eye has tremendous value. But then I remember it’s his life and he owes us nothing and he would probably be miserable if he wasn’t true to himself. I think the mission thing weighed heavily on him since he turned 19 and I am thinking he could never truly move on with his life until he did his duty to his church and to himself.

  279. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I meant to say “I” respect Martha’s decision to not share them, wasn’t given the commandment for everyone else to do it. Though, I’m sure we all do.

  280. tami lyn says:

    that’s what i would like to know too! are they privy to inside info or just hoping like the rest of us?!

  281. Ali says:

    Candy – that’s why I mentioned that as a possible “hint”. I’d say they have tentative plans for shows on his return but they probably don’t want to discuss specifics until he’s back. But I’m just a fan like you guys so all I can do is speculate :)

  282. Virtue says:

    Just a quick “hello” to everyone and Happy Hallow’eve!

    ‘just got back electricity this evening. We have our damage, but it was expected. I’ll be busy with cleaning up. I can’t wait until the roof gets fixed. Rain belongs outside ;)

    Does any one know if chat is closed due to Sandy? Our MODs are from all over; I hope everyone is okay.

  283. LurkeyTurkey says:

    Janel, what you are saying is sad about being a given and expected to go. I really believe, not knowing David of course but what we do know about him, that he would go whether expected or not. He has never hidden how religious and conservative he is. But I am kind of sad that young LDS men who really don’t feel the call or whatever have very little choice in this decision from what you seem to be saying. And I will be lurking and waiting it out in the hopes he will return and sing secular music again :)

  284. Candy says:

    for some of us two years is an eternity…and having seen many a career crash over a life time, it isnt always reassuring that “He is following his heart” That is a given…what isnt a given is what we all are sitting here waiting for…two years is a long time to believe and have faith in an unknown. Dont get me wrong, I think he is worth it and then some…but at times it is hard not to questions what he was thinking careerwise.

  285. donna says:

    chat is closed for Halloween. All the mods are fine :)

  286. kimk says:

    Candy is he thinking career in general?

  287. Candy says:

    We would be fooling ourselves to not realize that serving a mission is a part of being lds, why would David be any different…ahhh that one thing that sets him a part…his career. I dont question his religion, never have, dont understand it but then I am sure Janel and many others dont understand the Catholic Church either.

  288. Janel aka Nellie says:

    lurkey, it’s more like a given like, raising someone that they’re expected to go to college, or a career, or married. For someone who is LDS, even though you can say a young boy learns to be excited to go on a mission to teach the gospel, they aren’t made to feel like you’re bad for not making that choice to serve. Like when someone chooses to join the military there’s a sense of honor to serve your country. When someone who is LDS serves a mission, it gives them a sense of honor to represent what they believe in and serve their Father in Heaven.
    And sometimes, you have to not read to into what I write. It comes off the top of my brain and I type to quickly to catch up with my thoughts and don’t always reflect on what I type. LOLOL.

  289. Candy says:

    kimk-not so sure, but then again Ive wondered that about many decisions he has made over the time.

  290. josie says:

    I wish I could join in, but my tummy’s been pretty upset tonight, & I don’t think I should share what just happened. :( lol. I’m gonna call it a night. Bye.

  291. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Josie, you always make me laugh….

  292. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Though I know a little bit about a few other religions I don’t profess to be an expert in them. If David was of a different faith and decided to put his career on hold for two years to do something for that church, I completely admit that I wouldn’t understand it. I guess I just wish I could make everyone else understand. That’s all.
    Oh well at least there’s only 17 months left. Chipping away at the days.

  293. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Hugs Josie, whatever is wrong.

  294. Candy says:

    I really do fel there may have been a brief window of time when he was thinking of career over mission. Think back to the foundation building, signing on with a manager, meeting with writers, labels, talking to people in Nashville, meeting with realtors. That wasnt so he could put them on hold for years. I have always felt that the lack of success for TOSOD was the straw that gave me the green light to go. He was so hyped till that point…then he all went south from there, at least it felt that way in my book.

  295. Ali says:

    Some things are bigger than a career. I’d say this is an example of one for David.

    I know that can be hard to swallow as fans but it doesn’t change the truth of it. That doesn’t mean that David no longer wants a music career, its just that this mission is of more importance to him in the grand scheme of things than his immediate career. I can understand that. I’m not LDS but I know where he’s coming from in feeling so powerfully about something. And, no, there are no guarantees for when he returns. I personally think he is very well equipped for continuing his music career but I’m no fortune teller. And as I said before, I’m sure there are plans but there are definitely no absolutes in the music/entertainment industry. We’ll see.

    Two years is a long time for me personally to be anxious about David’s career though. Its my own decision but I’ve had to let that anxiety go for now. My life is too short to spend two years being a basketcase of worry. I’ll save that for when he comes back, ha!

    Boy, we’ve turned introspective tonight! I apologize for that. I’m gonna go stare at that gorilla’s kneecaps a bit longer…

  296. Candy says:

    very shortly after TOSOD sales immerged he stopped talking about that foundation…never mentioned it again. That should have been our first clue.

  297. Candy says:

    oh Im not a basket case, not even close. just times I get in that thinking about it mode, today was one of those days…definitely needed a distraction from what all is happening around me, been a stressful few days.

  298. Candy says:

    Ali-its good therapy, evidently we all need it now and then :)

  299. josie says:

    atx~ Well, I’m glad YOU’RE laughing. All I can say is…watch what you eat, peeps. This is not very fun. :( lol. Janel~ Actually, I understand a whole lot more than you might think. Which is why it is such an issue for me.

    ‘K, ‘night. Again.

  300. LurkeyTurkey says:

    Janel, thanks for replying. I do respect all religions and those choices even if I don’t understand them. Believe me I do not understand many things in my own religion LOL.
    Candy, it’s only my opinion but I have heard stories of fights with Jive over TOSOD and fights with Melinda over her choices for his career. Not saying what I heard is all true but I am wondering if he set up all of this in the strange hope it would all fail so he could feel free to move on to the missionary life. I’m probably not explaining my thoughts clearly but could he have subconsciously engineered the twists and turns the last few months so he could go without feeling any obligation to them and his career with them? Goodness I am really feeling reflective LOLOL

  301. Ali says:

    Candy – I’m sorry, I hope you don’t think I was calling you a basketcase! LOL I need to word things better. I meant that ~I~ needed to not be a basketcase. Of course, that’s always a danger with me :p

    I’ve kind of enjoyed our therapy session tonight though! I guess I had more to say about it than I thought. Being long-winded is one of my many vices. I enjoy them all thoroughly. heh.

  302. kimk says:

    tosod came from his heart.. may not of been what folks were looking for out there mainstream but then again it is a cute cd to say the least.
    wonder what his team is up to?
    so very interested in knowing if there really will be more music coming our way.
    can’t imagine ladyvmusic would RT my tweet if not!!

  303. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Josie, sorry was not laughing at your expense, sorry you feel bad. Just sometimes your timing is perfect….

  304. Candy says:

    Ali-nope not at all, Ive been a basketcase the past few days but it was due to some one named Sandy!

  305. LurkeyTurkey says:

    Goodnight fellow “introspectors” :)

  306. Janel aka Nellie says:

    turkeylurkey, do you follow me on twitter? If so dm me, if not, it’s nellie1983
    Or you can FB message me. My full name is Janel Woodbury. I’m easy to find on FB, in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Something I’ve made a few people aware of and I think I need to let you know. Can’t tell what it’s about here though. LOL

  307. kimk says:

    ha basketcase.. I’m a spazz to start with so doesn’t really come into play.
    guess if David is not around for us come 2014 I would be upset but sure I will
    get over it. always something brewing in the world to fuss over.

  308. cc halo says:

    Re: Candy’s question about Jimmer and Donny Osmond not going on missions. While I’m sure they both felt they could help the church better through their careers, I wonder if a big difference between them and David could be that both of them already had serious relationships and were engaged or married by the time they were mission age. Donny was married at 20, and Jimmer was engaged at 22 (and now married). BTW, I thought it was interesting that the head of the church, President Monson, who returned from the Navy at 18, but didn’t go on a mission, either.

  309. ATX #DA2014 says:

    I think regardless M was going to be let go. I think it was just a matter of time. You could see the tension already on his live chat the day TOSOD was released. I also saw it first hand in Dallas.

    I think David honestly thought TOSOD would do well. He put his heart and soul into it, why would be not think that?

  310. josie says:

    atx~ It’s OK. :)

  311. Janel aka Nellie says:

    why what huh Josie? You said you weren’t feeling well and I was sending cyber hugs, that’s all. Had a tummy flu Sunday & Monday so they were definate sympathy and empathy hugs.

  312. josie says:

    Janel~ lol. No, your cyber hugs were lovely. Thank you. :) I was referring to a different topic. Later.

  313. Candy says:

    ATX-Mel was one of the choices he made that I will never understand, she was a bad fit from the get go. Plus he waited till the eleventh hour right before Tosod was released to sign on with them. It was sort of like it was doomed before it ever got started.

  314. ATX #DA2014 says:

    The witching hour has approuched. Good night all, sweet David dreams.

  315. Ali says:

    Candy – I meant to say earlier that I’m so happy to hear all was (mostly) well with you after Sandy! I’m sending good vibes to everyone in affected by the storm <3

    Good night, Turkey!

  316. Candy says:

    cc-If that was there reason I feel the same…David could have reached more people doing what he was doing…but then the church didnt ask my opinion., neither did David. He reached and touched more people than all of the missionaries combined. And he did it in all corners of the world…

  317. Janel aka Nellie says:

    A tidbit some people might not know? Did you know the Osmond’s parents had them start singing when they were young to help pay for their older deaf brothers Tom and Virl’s hearing aids and to help them to go on a mission? Just a bit of trivia.

  318. Candy says:

    Janel-you and a few others have been the lds voice of reason here, you never seem to tire of the endless questions, Im sure at times its hard not to take it personally. Rather then point a finger, lecture or scold others you have graciously answered questions, concerns. Thank you for your patience.

  319. dailylurker says:

    Ok now I know why you won’t post the mish blogs Martha and I totally understand. I thought we weren’t suppose to discuss anything pertaining to the blogs here but just post a link. Didn’t the mods say that weeks ago? I do remember that. Plus I’m not interested in David’s religion or whatever they do anyway. I just like to here that David is doing ok from time to time and that is all. Don’t even read any of the other parts of the mish blogs. It’s all good if others do. Other fansites will post them so it’s all good. I agree with you Martha by the way. Religion and politics is too touchy for me so I just skip over all the comments about it and see if any new info on David’s music is in the comments.

    That is a scary gorilla pic of David above. lols Happy Halloween to everyone!

    Interesting conversations tonight! Me, I have to take it month by month. When I first became a fan, I found myself feeling way too much anxiety over David’s career, wondering, speculating, excited for him one minute, worried about him the next…….wanting so much for him….it was kind of making me crazy. I decided that was not going to work for me two years, and that i was going to have to trust David and God, and not look too far down the road…… (not that I don’t love hearing others thoughts about what might be in store because I do!). I just found for me it is best to focus on the joy it is to support and fangirl over him for now and take it a month at a time…..this month Rainbow, next month the Christmas devotional, etc., seems there has been something to keep us interested every month or so…before we know it he will be gone a year! So….every now and then the worrying about him rears it’s head, but I agree with Ali, life’s too short.(speaking to myself here.). So, I TRY real hard not to, and am so enjoying the day to day stuff here and all he left us, and all the previous stuff i missed. He’s amazing! I am right now loving CFTH!….had to break it out and now I can’t stop listening! Rambing on…..Night all!

    ok janel, now i have a question for u! sorry lol! u know the whole mormon families being together for eternity and all that? well being that jeff and lupe are divorced and might get remarried to other people does that mean the original family is still together in heaven or the new family or everyone? sorry if i didn’t word that right. the whole thing is very confusing. and what if david does not like his dad’s or mom’s new husband or wife? does he still have to spend eternity with them? thankyou!

  322. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, I just want to add that I truly believe that David will continue to do music when he returns, I recall an interview he did last November when the interviewer asked him what he saw himself doing at 40, He only had one answer, music. I look forward to what’s to come when he comes back and what may be in store for us until then. Good nite all :)

    Candy at 10:14: I was really shocked about the mission decision because I thought the same–that he was doing so much more good in his career, in supporting charities, and inspiring people all over the world. But it shows how little I know about his upbringing and real life attitudes.

  324. Janel aka Nellie says:

    tamilyn, believe me, it’s something I’ve wondered about my life. I’m divorced too. This is actually a pretty deep subject (content and length) of which I have my own thoughts but wouldn’t want it to turn into a whole argument session with fans. If you want to discuss it a little more private, I’m fine with that. janel_woodbury at yahoo.

  325. cc halo says:

    Also, somewhere I saw that a lot of people had converted to his church (maybe 40) through his career, but I’ve only seen a couple (one of them a child) on the mission website.

    That said, of course I believe that he has every right to choose this, especially if it’s what he’s always planned to do in his life.

  326. Janel aka Nellie says:

    You’re welcome Candy. :)
    I love to talk about what we believe but I’m kind of careful here to just full out preach because of the contention it can cause. But, I do like answering whatever questions I’m able.

  327. Candy says:

    Good night All-a missed night of sleep due to Sandy is catching up with me. Enjoyed the conversation tonight.

  328. Candy says:

    cc-I know two that directly converted due to David but wont for privacy reasons.
    Night All

  329. Candy says:

    *wont name them

  330. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Stuff to do.
    Week 29; Oct 29-Nov 4: David Trivia week. Trivia on FOD, Fod comments and chat. Anyone can ask or answer a trivia question.
    Week 30; Nov 5-11: Family week. Play games with your family indoors or out.

  331. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Well, you know me Candy and I was re-converted, came back because of David and Be Still My Soul, and David Osmond, and other things. BSMS the biggest reason.

  337. lessha says:

    Hi everyone! Haven’t been on here forever, I do lurk everyday though. I just wanted to jump on with that tweet from Lady V. Wooo Hooo sounds like music heading our way!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!! NEW DAVID MUSIC!!!!!!

  338. Ali says:

    Lady V clarified her previous tweet:

    @LadyVmusic: Ok archie fans just to clear this up I haven’t spoken to david as I’m sure you are all aware he’s away at this present time. :)

    Some people thought see meant she has talked to him in person or on the phone. I’m pretty sure the email she mentioned yesterday in relation to David is what she’s talking about.

  339. stop says:

    I think we should not talk about david’s family esp his mom and if u have questions about the rules please go directly to lds church we shouldn’t bring in to a blog site because it’s not a happy subjects. Sorry. Happy subject is OK I think.

  340. lessha says:

    Ali, I still hope it means new music!

  341. Ali says:

    Lessha- I’m guessing it will be new to us anyway lol. Right before that tweet she replied to a fan and said she she was working on something for David but hadn’t talked to him in person.

  342. That really makes me happy. I knew David was full of surprises. Don’t know what it is or when but i will take any bone that thrown at me right now LOL!

  343. lessha says:

    Ali anything of David singing anything that we haven’t heard will be ecactly what we need right now or anytime!!!

    Nice talking to you Ali. Good night everyone. TTYL

  344. jhen says:

    I like to hear when your heart fall out. Look like the message is emotional. Pls Lady V can u leak it out lol . Wow! She is writing new song for David? I guess so.

  345. jhen says:

    I don’t think David will be more conservative . He already gave as hint. Eye of the Tiger .

  346. JHEN,I don’t think David will not be more conservative, Maybe more mature because of his experiences there, He will need his time for himself and his family. But then he will be ready for the thing he loves more then anything else, his music. JMO.

  347. “Will be more conservative”

  348. Sorry, it’s late, i can’t even type right.

  349. jhen says:

    Linda- I agree, more mature David.

  350. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY NOVEMBER! These next two months are SUPER busy for me…will make the time fly! Also some David goodies coming our way! David has amazed me by all that he’s done for us….even something to make us smile on Halloween! He’s AMZING!

    David is ONE of a kind! Not only professionally but personally! His commitment to not ony his fans and career but to his faith are incredible! Remembering how young David is and yet how focused and committed he is makes me see that he knows who he is and where it is he wants to go with his life and career. Trust the Archuleta….he has a handle on things….my guess he’s planned the next 17 months and then some! What did they used to say….mature beyond his years!!

    Nana patrol! ENJOY YOUR DAY and your David time! :)

  351. kimk says:

    Good morning folks!

    HAPPY NOVEMBER….. I FEEL A RAINBOW COMING OUR WAY!!!

    OMJOSH NEW DAVID MUSIC!!!!!!!!! :D

    Victoria Hornღ♫♕❀✿♥☆ ‏@LadyVmusic
    “@sydbk: @LadyVmusic ooh you talked to @davidarchie! I’m jealous haha!” I havent talked to david in person. just working on something 4 him

    I was so shocked when I saw @DavidArchie’s corn maze in Utah was shown on @wideshotmetrotv !!!!! :D

    Everybody Hurts is still #5!!
    Love seeing him on the charts!!
    Vote if you can and thanks!!! :D

    Josie @ 10:59pm
    “Janel~ Actually, I understand a whole lot more than you might think. Which is why it is such an issue for me.”

    My thoughts exactly. Understanding makes it WORSE, not better. I believe that David’s HEART is in the right place. The issue is everything else and that’s what makes it so sad.

  355. kimk says:

    more into the fun and musical side of David so staying out of the religious side if I can.
    I don’t care if I read about it all just not interested in all that much.

    that being said kind of sad FEE is pushed up even more.. hope they can release a lil snippet for us to squee over!?

  356. ksf says:

    Thanks Ali! New music! :)

  357. nora says:

    kimk-I agree with you I’m staying out of the religious thing. I don’t care if I read about it, I just want to wait and enjoy all the things David has left us, and wait until he returns in2014, no matter I will be here. JMO

  358. ksf says:

    David left his career for two years so its bound to be talked about. For some of us the reason he left is important and it does matter. I enjoy talking about all sides of him, including the religious.

  359. kimk says:

    ksf that is true.. for me I guess I don’t care about it all too much. way I see it the world is made up of so many religions ways of being so to each their own. do care if folks hurt each other or themselves though. ott stuff is not ok so where something like that I would probably speak up.
    anyway I love his sunny disposition what kind of got me here.. oh yeah there is that voice and that gorgeous face of his ain’t bad either.

  360. ksf says:

    kimk – :)

  361. ksf says:

    And actually, I should clarify what I said earlier. For lots of people, religion is not just something you do or a title, or a “side.” You don’t just turn it on and off. Lol. It is who you are and a person’s total way of life. It’s not just about going to church or even being brought up in a church. For those who are devout it is the impetus for life. It IS life. That’s why it matters. Obviously, these are MY thoughts.

  362. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all, VaBeach, Kimk, ksf, Nora Have a very good morning :)

    VaBeachArchie, yes “trust the Archuleta” :) , November, Rainbow is closer now :)

    Jhen Funny how we are in the same time zone and all but I hardly get to talk to you, miss you :)

  363. nora says:

    can’t wait to see what David has in store for us, I know there is a RAINBOW in our future, and I do trust the Archuleta, only he knows what is best for him, and I trust his judgement.

  364. ATX #DA2014 says:

    November 1!!! Have a great day everyone!! Trust the Archuleta!!!!

    Poster of @DavidArchie in KLIK mag Malaysia.Anyone has the full size,Pls twitpic! Tks 4 the headsup @iStalkArchie

  366. ksf says:

    I don’t now nor have I ever “worried” about David as far as his career goes. My concerns are of a different sort. But, it’s funny how people equate discussion with worry? Lol.

  367. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk , Have to go to a book shop to buy one :)

  368. TGRArchie says:

    Got curious about this follow-up treat from Jo-Ann Banaga about the email she got from David:
    JoAnn C. Bañaga ‏@JoAnnBanaga
    @suttygal @anagfeleo @kariontour – nothing really special. t’was more on the business end for me. more for tv5. regards to all archies!

    Hmmm….curioser and curioser …..N.A.business?

  369. tami lyn says:

    good morning :) yay, halloween is over! had 35 trick or treaters, there is candy left for me! time to put up the christmas decorations :)

  370. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello kimk, ksf, nora, pocoelsy and ATX! November! The months are going by…another in the books!

    Religion and politics are in a NO fly zone for me! No win situation when discussing them, because most have opinions that won’t chanage. We are what we are…and we believe in it…just as David does. Thats all that matters.

    ATX, nora, pocoelsy….Trust the Archuleta! He sure has done alot for us while he’s away and I have nothing but EXCITEMENT LOOKING FORWARD ! #DA2014

    Being an older fan I’m hoping that David’s return to music will be SOON AFTER HIS RETURN….not getting any younger! Hope a VIP and TOUR will be in my future! :)

  371. jhen says:

    Hello everyone! Pocoelsy, just busy lately, because of All Souls day in the Philippines, need to visit departed love ones, relatives in the cemetaries to give them respect and remember praying for their souls. That’s why we don’t met here. When you log in, I’m already log out & vice versa lol

  372. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello tami lyn and TGRArchie! I work retail…we’ve had Christmas stuff out for a month already! I always decorate early…too many hours closer to Christmas! lol

  373. tami lyn says:

    it’s so ironic. here we are trying not to talk about religion because it can be upsetting to some people while david is out there talking about religion all day every day to virtual strangers. most of us at some level admire what he is doing but we are unable to do it ourselves even among friends. why?

  374. jhen says:

    Va- I also no worry about David career, I trust David and his team. Just excited and looking forward for 2014.

  375. tami lyn says:

    hi VaBeach :) yeah saw the trees up in wal-mart a few weeks ago, seemed crazy! but now here it is, it comes so fast every year! i’m putting up my tree this weekend :) cuz yeah time is gonna fly

  376. Juicy Jubilee (formerly known as ksf) says:

    Luscious London – LOL :P – I understand what you’re saying but I think in this particular case its just silly to tip toe around an issue that is the elephant in the room. Why should we expect that religion or politics should never be discussed? Doesn’t make sense to me. Clearly, its not the ONLY issue that is talked about here, but it is a PART of what is discussed here and I personally don’t see anything wrong with that.

  377. suttygal (joanie) says:

    New Thursday post is up!!
    Wishing everyone a great day! :)

  378. kimk says:

    pocoelsy dang lucky you.. once FEE is released to WOW it will take three weeks to get to me! Rainbow HAS to be on his YT site!!!!

  379. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, folks!!!

    Hmmm, “Business”thing with TV5????……”Musical” thing with Lady V????…..EXCITING THINGS COMING UP??!!! :D

    Hi tami lyn! :) This is sooo true. ANY topic can be discussed as long as you understand that it is a DISCUSSION. It is a DIALOGUE. It is NOT a personal attack! How sad is it that grown adults can’t talk about their thoughts and explain themselves on an online forum and yet David talks non-stop about it with people face to face 24/7? I’m not saying that this should be the only topic, obviously, but why is it something to be afraid of?
