A shorter post for you today but still lots to share with all of you!  Let’s start with….

Fort Wayne Memories

 Okay, how does someone come off of a loooonnnng trip, quite possibly frazzled by the delays and lost luggage and still look genuinely happy??  I know I know…it’s David :)

David Archuleta helped light the Christmas tree on Saturday, Nov. 20th at Jefferson Pointe in Fort Wayne, IN for the  WAJI Magic 95.1 Magical Day of Giving.  Here’s a great interview with Fort Wayne’s local Fox News.   Tx Archiedorable!

And, we had all the vids from the free concert that followed the tree lighting and we packaged them up into a great video playlist.  The  mini-concert included, “Elevator”, “Falling Stars”, “Complain”, “The Other Side of Down”, “Crush”, “The Melodies of Christmas”, “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”.

Take your time and enjoy!  Tx to Jenny and Fansofdavidvideos!!!  And @icecreampie (Kristin).  And if nothing else, you MUST watch the first vid with David lighting the tree, along with Santa of course!  AND you MUST watch Kristin’s Complain.  It’s super close!  Well, watch it all then…you won’t regret it :)

…and from the vault, three Fort Wayne slideshows.  I love all the fans who share their great pix.  Where would we be without all of you!  In this order, thanks to Jessica

and to Mikinzi

….and to Kera

And Taryn’s awesome pics which you may have seen several times, because they are spectacular.  Click to go to her facebook page.  Seriously, these are some of the best pics!  You won’t regret it :)

 It was awesome-hair-meets-awesome-styling-meets-awesomeDavid in Fort Wayne.

  32. kimk says:

    ha well forever young is a good thing David.. I swear! especially in the biz!

    thanks sarahhazel for all the STUFF!!

    Linda lol not really very patient but that is ok too. ha no choice! know it will eventually be posted to YT…. and will be a great way to keep his name and face out there! folks LOVE these kinds of videos!!!! happy and sooooooooooooo easy to fangirl over!!

    NA & David are leading in their categories! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!!!!!!

  38. kimk says:

    yikes I was wrong folks sorry!
    that is the first one that is #8!?
    his FEE it says is still #31 but don’t see it on the list?
    think the FEE as it is not too advertised is not doing too well maybe?
    why would folks buy the first one when you get so much more with FEE?
    oh well ignore my rambling!

  39. kimk says:

    not sure what is going on with all this stuff.. why so hush hush? no video being posted yet etc or any hoopla about it all but then again I am not David’s team.
    darn hope my FEE doesn’t take three weeks!!

  40. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–dang, confusing! :roll: :mad:

  41. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol one thing from day one with David is to expect the unexpected and to be scratching my head a lot.. don’t give up just figure there is so much going on behind the scenes? really looking forward to seeing his gorgeous face with this vid though.. over and over and over again!!

  42. Lurker says:

    I don’t know if it’s David or his team but either one is not doing enough to keep his name out there. His hard fans can only do so much. I can’t think of one younger fan that listens to him or mentions him where I am, yes us older fans do but i’m not sure that is enough. :(

  43. kimk says:

    Lurker see the young ones moving on.. hope his team does too. the key to his future is those fans his own age. not that me or other older fans are bad at all just thinking about the time when we won’t be around to support him as best we can.
    I still see a few young fans supporting him.. like Sam for instance. just think the other young ones are easily swayed by all the attention and goings on other artists are putting out today.
    do like Kari a lot but almost seems like something is missing where the rest of his team is? or is there one? lol again got me.
    all I know is I am dedicated to posting and trying my best to do what I can.

  44. Lurker says:

    I hear you Kimk, I’ll be here always, and I love Kari but wonder if she is the only one behind him, :(…..if that is the case I think we are in trouble. Even my daughter has moved on to One direction she says because they are good boys that like to have fun, she thinks David is too serious ALL the time. She says we know he can sing and we knw he wants to leave a good message in his music but its about time he has fun with his music. Like Paula said, just have fun with it, show the world he cn do it all. :(

  47. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, feeling the same as you. Older fans will always have his back, but he needs youth to sustain his career. Yes, is there an Archuleta Team?, and if so, please do something to keep his name out there!!!! Another wave of concern about him having a career to come home for…Why don’t they just release songs, I know he has to of recorded a bazillion songs, why not just release one every month, so that the youth will maybe buzz about. Fustration setting in, ugh!!!! What a shame for such a talent to just disappear, or just be a lounge singer.

  48. Lurker says:

    Srry for mentioning all that but it may be a reason that the sales for FEE ar not as high as we would like.

  49. sarahhazel says:

    Maybe this is just the way he wants it :?: :???:

  50. cq#DA2014 says:

    Lurker, agree that oh so serious David will become boring after a while.

  51. Lurker says:

    Cq- I absolutley agree, I think it would be great for him if just released songs one at a time to keep youngens interested, and of course it would have to be different types of songs…not just inspirational songs.

  52. kimk says:

    Lurker have seen that too.. why this vid is important to me as a fan. like happy myself!!
    love D but as a person I gravitate to the happy stuff for the most part. def a fangirl at heart. lol the oh so swoon worthy stuff too. think why NA was so popular.
    hoping come 2014 we get a ton of all this too.
    the new David.
    not that the old one was all that bad either.
    as for 1D they are a happy lot.. knew they were going to make it big.
    a young girl’s dreamboat times 5!

  53. sarahhazel says:

    I guess the reason FEE is not selling well (for now)….is because many don’t wanna fork out additional $$ for a “repeat” of the same album. It’s the holidays & money is needed for other stuff like gifts & holiday food, etc. Sure, there is the RR and RMV but that might not be enough for more sales. Fans might just want to see the RMV of a gorgeous, bouncy, dancey David & that’s about it…..for FREE.

  54. sarahhazel says:

    P.S……Now, if it ‘s a new Christmas album, a live MKOCT DVD or at least a re-packaged CFTH….maybe it would be a whole different story.

    Ya hear me, Team Archuleta? ;)

  55. kimk says:

    sarahhazel could be the way he wants it. not bad to not want fame and fortune to go with what you wish to go for. was more talking about FEE not selling and the young fans leaving. only thing I see is there won’t be a demand in Asia etc if folks have moved on?
    guess a matter of balance.

  56. Lurker says:

    Sarahhazel- True story!

    breanne–you’re welcome, ms. go-getter! :)

  61. kimk says:

    sarahhazel true only the vid is attached.. also saw that since other artists have good music they are buying theirs first. sure his team sees that too. in otherwords only so much moola to go around.
    if they keep posting free stuff folks will keep somewhat engaged til he gets a chance to be involved again.
    if he wishes.

  62. kimk says:

    sarahhazel up to him for sure. lol counting on it!!

  63. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I’m sure the financial thing is a big factor. Ya know David is a frugal guy & maybe he is saving for his big future endeavors….like you said, we don’t know the behind-the-scenes stuff going on & the problems they (the Team) are facing…..music biz is complicated…..so we’ll just have to hang on….whatever will be, will be…..

  65. Grace says:

    Morning everyone!!

    Just stopping by to say hello.
    Got email from WOWHD yesterday that FEE has been shipped. Woohoo!! Can’t wait!! Those who have decided not to buy the CD (even among diehard fans), could you consider to get it for a Christmas present for yourself? :)

    Thanks to our mods never ending dedication, I can always come here and check what’s going on in David land. Thank you, guys!!!! Gotta go. Have a great day, everyone!!!

  66. Janel aka Nellie says:

    David’s ending to My Hands on that AOL sessions is wonderful. He changes up the notes a little, love it!

  67. cq#DA2014 says:

    Imo, just having the new remix Rainbow and mybe a new song would of sold much better. Who wants to pay for another album with the same songs, other than diehard fans to will support David no matter what he releases…and diehard fans are not enough to have good sales numbers.
    Hoping we get a fun surprise from Kari/team that will generate buzz.

  68. Got in my car this morning to come to work, turned radio on and David was on sinthank you email. Also told him bout CFTH on itunes that’s where he gets his music.singing Beautiful. Think my DJ got my email

  69. Sorry messed up. On cell can’t correct right now

  70. kimk says:

    I don’t know if this helps but I think LadyV’s hints are that we may get some new pop music from David next year? maybe why those Matt Clayton pics?
    from the title sounds like a cool song.. she said it was her fav of his.
    When Your Heart Falls Out I think?
    a pop cd not easy listening might just be what folks are needing to keep on keeping on!
    keep those youngens (ha and me) chomping on the bit til he returns.

  71. kimk says:

    cq never know after the vid released might help with sales. or sales that his team wish it to be. hopes!

  72. kimk says:

    as a matter of fact LadyV mentioned a single of hers coming out in Jan?
    folks asked her if D and she didn’t say no. or yes.
    hopes on that too!!!

  73. blue says:

    i hope it’s when your heart falls out. i really really want to hear that one.

  74. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–crossing fingers it IS D’s/LadyV’s song coming out in the New Year! :D

  75. sarahhazel says:

    My heart is gonna fall out if it’s not! :cry:

  76. kimk says:

    soon as Lady V started talking about it I got really excited.. hmm I LOVE Look Around too and she did that too no?
    cool song and hope David sings that one live one day.. so much fun!

  77. kimk says:

    off to Whole Foods.. lol my luck Kari will post RAINBOW!
    bringing my phone of course!

  78. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol think we will hear it one day.. Lady did get an email from kari about new music I think? ha we need to ask Santa for it!!!

  79. Sorry customer came in. David was on radio singing Beautiful told Dj bout CFTH on itunes. Hopefully he will play some xmas music of his

  80. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–that would be great!….people need to hear the best this holiday season….and we all know who that is! ;)

  81. Candy says:

    If David is going to have a big come back he is going to need a self administered shot in the ole patoot to get him fired up. We still have 16 months till he returns to US soil….which in youth time is considered …like forever!
    I too have wondered about the sale of FEE, sure us hardcore fans will buy it but will those his age fork over money for the same songs. Plus, they know the video will unfortunately eventually end up on YT! A definite catch 22.

    Thanks Pastel- and you are right…that SMILE will get you every time…and the HAIR!!

  85. Tracy says:

    Hi all, I agree with today’s conversation on why his FEE ablum hasn’t sold as much, I agree with Cq- if it had of been just the video it probably would of sold more.

  86. meganloves2lol says:

    nice quote up there by the founder of my church hahah….Anyway, i agree with what was said earlier. i was saying that to my mom the other day, i don’t really feel like david’s team is doing enough to keep the fans interested. Of course, the true fans wont go anywhere. But i just wish they were doing more to keep his name out there. it’s like he vanished off the face off the earth. I understand that that is how missions are, but i just feel like they aren’t doing anything to keep our interest. However, when david comes back, and think everyone will come back to him as well. I have a feeling it will be a big thing when he gets back, and that sooo many people will be at his first concert he does! :)

  87. sarahhazel says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden

    Sometimes it seems that @DavidArchie has gone from the MTC to the MPP (Mission Protection Program). No other Missionary is treated like this

  88. sarahhazel says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden

    @pabuckie @DavidArchie I’ve read numerous blogs from other Missionaries, complete with pics and detailed accounts of their activities.

  89. Candy says:

    Bliss- MPP- Boy if that aint true…perhaps in his quest to serve a “normal” Mission he has set standards that are quite not the norm. David seems to be like that in all he does…takes things to the max and beyond. Im thinking it is his choice, well I hope it is!

  90. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–I’m with ya on that….and I respect that choice…..but I’m still sad about it, TBH…..waaahhh! :cry:

  91. sarahhazel says:

    Aubri Olson ‏@auburrito

    @blisskasden @DavidArchie treated like what? lol… Maybe he just doesn’t feel like having a blog about it. Not all missionaries do.

  92. sarahhazel says:

    breanne #DA2014 ‏@breanneruss

    @DavidArchie @kariontour Was at Seagull Book in Brigham City, UT today. They had lots of BEGIN. cds & had it listed as their #1 bestseller!!

  93. Candy says:

    I thought for sure in the almost 9 months since he left we would have had one letter, something directly from him posted on the OS. I cant see what could possibly be wrong with “Having a great time, country is beautiful, people and food are great. David” How the heck would that be such a bad thing.

  94. sarahhazel says:

    …..or “thanks, guys for the postcards….I promise I’ll try my best to read them all….haha…”
    That would have made everyone’s month!

  95. Candy says:

    Other missionaries dont have fans waiting, a career they put on hold. I get the whole it was his choice thing…but to be honest, careerwise it could be the kiss of death. He is the first person in mission history to put a career on hold, to put his faith (literally) in his fans that they will be there when he gets back…makes me wonder if Jimmer and Donny saw the bigger picture.

  96. Candy says:

    sarahhazel- a simple comment like that would carry fans for months.

  97. sarahhazel says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden
    @auburrito @DavidArchie is much more than his music to his fans. We care about HIM as we would any person we care about in our lives.

    Aubri Olson ‏@auburrito
    @blisskasden @DavidArchie I know, but like you always say, he’s an adult and can make his own decisions just like us. He doesn’t owe us.

  98. Candy says:

    I dont feel hearing directly from David once say every six months which equals four times while he is gone, is considered “owing us something”

  99. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–that’s true…..even a simple message would generate buzz on the usual sites….better than nothing.

  100. sarahhazel says:

    Mike ‏@blisskasden

    @auburrito @DavidArchie We don’t need to know what he had for lunch. A brief hello and current pic would suffice.

  101. sarahhazel says:

    On Jimmer and Donny, maybe they DID see the big picture……

  102. Candy says:

    Gessh-how did I get pulled into this conversation again…where the heck is that danged RAINBOW video when you need it.

  103. nora says:

    Hi guys, everybody is talking about the FEE cd, are you talking about sales from WOW, does anybody know how it is selling at Astro, maybe it is doing better there. I think David has done so much for us in the amount of music he has left us, we knew he would take his mission very seriously, I don’t know what you expect from him. If you are worried about the young fans, it seems that not many were around after Crush. I am thankful for all that we got so far, didn’t expect much, but got more than I thought. RMV will come he has to make some money to pay for it’s release. I think He will be just fine.JMHO

  104. cc halo says:

    David knows he has fans with very diverse beliefs. Virtually every missionary blog I’ve read has some version of the statement, “I know the LDS church is the only true church on the face of the earth”. Perhaps by not blogging, he’s being sensitive to our feelings, while being able to stay focused in the enthusiastic missionary mindset.

  105. Candy says:

    sarahhazel-Im thinking maybe they did.

  106. cc halo says:

    I’m also wondering what changed, though. Before he left, he sounded so positive about trying to keep in touch, if he was allowed to.

  107. Candy says:

    cc halo-How does “the country and people are great” have anything to do with his being sensitive to others feeling. Its a generic statement that anyone would make, has nothing to do with religion and more to do with being missed and how nice it feels to hear from someone you care about beyond their music career.

  108. Candy says:

    cc halo- he as going to talk with the mission president and see how he could communicate with fans…those words came directly from David…Im with you…what changed!

  109. Candy says:

    *was going

  110. sarahhazel says:

    Candy @5:03–I did remember he said that in either a vlog or an interview.

    Anyway, an occasional message every now and then would be wonderful. That would mean a lot…if, worse comes to worst,….there won’t be anything else for the fans in 2013.
    THAT IS ALL.

    Brittany Redding ‏@BrittanyR105

    falling back inlove with David Archuleta

  112. cc halo says:

    Well I admit I have no way to get inside his head. Here’s another off-the-wall theory: maybe, being an introvert, he felt dealing with a fan base was a bit of a responsibility and burden he hadn’t expected to have in his life, so he decided this was a good time to take a two year sabbatical. IDK.

  113. Philly Fan says:

    I love that David left us with music before he left for 2 yrs but 2 yrs in the music business when you are not a Superstar and selling mega music is a long time to be away. I will always support David because I love his voice and anything that he sings. However he does need more fans to become relevent when he returns. The way I see it it’s like a crap shoot if he produces what folks want to buy and listed to then all is good. I do believe when he returns if he can get some publicity or mega buzz and come out with a great single all will be well because he always did have that IT factor going for him along with his beautiful voice. And may I also say that he looks gorgeous on camera. He just needs to lighten up a bit and let that latin side that he tries to keep in check to come out. lol and JMHO.

  114. Philly Fan says:

    One more thing I don’t see anything wrong with a written blog or a photo to show to his fans once every so often. JMHO.

  115. sarahhazel says:

    Philly Fan–exactly.

  116. Candy says:

    Philly fan- me either, thats why I tend to feel like Bliss in that he is in the MPP!

  117. Candy says:

    cc halo-those thoughts are why I question to my self his return to a sustained career…Im sure its a huge and at times overwhelming responsibility. When he decided to do AI season 7 he had to have been aware of the fans, tours, etc that Kelly, Carrie, Clay were doing…

    @kariontour @davidarchie Hahaha omg i look soo young…. still a great pic though

  121. 2014 says:

    David has often expressed that his music career is something separate from his personal life and decisions. We’re fans of him, not only because of his music, but who he is. He has chosen to keep his mission life separate. We can only respect his choices. He is serious about his mission, and keeping 100% focus on that while he’s away, he’s proving that. And it’s probably been a challenge for him to remain dedicated to his commitment but part of his mission is to do just that. He’s made that sacrifice to follow the Lord completely for 2 years of his life. He may have decided along the way that it was best not to have any contact with us til he returned for various reasons. That’s only what I understand.
    Yes, there are some of us that are sticking around, and I’m sure some have found other sources. But when David comes-a-callin” you can bet your bottom dollar there will be fans coming back to him with great excitement. And then it’ll be up to David and his team to work their magic to capture their hearts again! We don’t know what he has planned when he returns, we don’t know what direction he will take… that’ll depend on David and David only. His missionary experience will determine his direction on his return. It all comes down to his choices. We’ll just have to see what unfolds.

  122. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–his website has a little WEG logo on the side….hmmm….he is a singer, that’s for sure.

  123. cq#DA2014 says:

    cchalo, those blogs from the missionaries come across pretty arrogant: The only true church in the whole world. I guess non-Mormans are all domed and don’t have a place in heaven. God I just hope that David has a more open mind.

  128. Ali says:

    LOL at that twitter account name. Uhhh I think maybe they want to rethink that since the post is all about the drama.

    Here’s what I have to say. Worry about your own self and your own “salvation” or whatever you’re selling. I’ll do me. Group think is not my style.

  129. sarahhazel says:

    WOAH! All we said was we want occasional messages from him. :shock:

    :D

  131. Candy says:

    who wrote that blog…and who are they to assume what I or anyone else is feeling!
    *smoke coming out ears*

    And that my friends is exactly why I have serious doubts as to David having any kind of a career outside of his church!! WOW that was unreal!

  132. blue says:

    no mormon believes that non mormons are doomed and have no place in heaven.

  133. blue says:

    and with how ppl feel about david’s religion i can fully understand why he’s chosen or it was decided that he shouldn’t have a blog. it’s just ammunition that ppl can use against him. he’s left lots of music for us. he worked really hard to give us things while he’s gone. it’s not that same as direct communication and yeah it would be nice if he could say things directly to us but i can sure see why it is the way it is.

  134. Candy says:

    Ali- I was just thinking the same thing…that was beyond drama and spite filled! I will NEVER EVER understand what they hope to accomplish…you can beat that dead horse, bury it, dig it up and beat it again but it isnt going to change anyones mind so why go on a zillion word rant about it! I just plain old give up!

  135. sarahhazel says:

    Oh well, to each his own….those kind of things are not gonna sway me to do or think otherwise. :neutral:

  136. blue says:

    i’m not even going to read that blog. eh
    don’t want to ruin thanksgiving.

  137. breanne says:

    I don’t know who wrote the blog but just saw it on twitter & them asking zerogravity1 to RT.

  138. cq#DA2014 says:

    2014, “follow the Lord completely” Imo, actually missionaries are sent by the church to spread their views and convert, so that statement isn’t completely right.

  139. kimk says:

    lol oh boy here we go again.
    and folks wonder why things are going fluey.

    not even reading it.. only into the fangirl stuff going forward.

  140. Ali says:

    Candy – meh, I say to each their own. Its the opinion of a certain group of people and its fine if its theirs. It bugs me that they seem to think everyone needs to share their personal opinion buy mainly I just think its funny that they believe they can dictate the thoughts and actions of the entire fanbase. They’re entitled to share their opinion or wish as much as they want just as I’m entitled to categorically disagree.

    Heads up: just because you truly believe something doesn’t make it the one true way. I believe that you believe it but that doesn’t make it true for me. So don’t try to push your behavior on me and I won’t push mine on you. This should be a blueprint for world peace, while we’re at it ;)

    And congrats on that drama thing.

  141. cq#DA2014 says:

    Blue, oh really, you speak for all Mormons. All I’m saying is ALL religions, including the LDS church, have their good point and their very bad points.

  142. blue says:

    i wonder what a collaboration between david and one direction would be like? probably like that owl city/carly rae jepson song. fun but clean at the same time.

    Awesome photo with Santa! :D

  145. kimk says:

    Kari has an unique was of trying to get folks to remember David with her tweets lately?
    don’t mind at all. anything is good way I see it.
    not sure if it will get folks to buy FEE but bet it will help keep his name out there.
    hope Kari stays with him.. but also hope he gets more of a team if he wishes that is to get back into the biz again come 2014.

  146. Candy says:

    Ali- you saved me from writing basically the same thing…wont change my mind one bit…free country, free speech, free to think.
    LOL -Congrats on the drama thing! Ha, way to promote world peace! Stir the pot with the biggest stick you can find!!

  147. blue says:

    cq – i’m saying that it’s not taught that way. so if anyone who is a mormon actually thinks that then they’re misunderstanding they’re religion.

  148. blue says:

    not they’re. boy i’m not spelling right today. their.

  149. blue says:

    oh my goodness that picture! cute. :)

  150. Candy says:

    blue-I think it would be great! I hope they’re still around when he get back. They’re a clean, fun loving group.

  154. Ali says:

    Anywho. As Mary J would say, no more drama. (indeed). I’m in too good of a holiday mood to be worried about that mess.

    Just about to seriously start my Christmas music rotation! Tree going up tomorrow and you know who will be singing me along!!! ;D

    That picture with Santa is ridic. Even Santa looks excited to meet David lol.

  155. Candy says:

    LOL talk about timing…and Gladys will be at two of them!!!

  156. blue says:

    is rebecca lopez famous?

  157. sarahhazel says:

    I wish to shrink and sneak in Gladys’ purse or pocket….hehe…..

  158. Candy says:

    What a GREAT picture! Two happy guys out for an evening sleigh ride!

  159. kimk says:

    Candy ha I am with you.. plan on enjoying all I can.
    not that I plan on bothering David down there.. ha whateven or with what he is doing but just going to enjoy all that pops up. way I see it there is nothing to hide cause it is David for goodness sake. lol not like he is doing anything criminal.
    or at least hope not! WAH!!

  160. Candy says:

    LOL sarahhazel, bet you woudnt be in there alone, can think of a “few” fans that would be right there with you!!

  161. blue says:

    candy – i think they’ll still be around. he’ll be back in less than a year and a half. maybe they can do a song together for the next album. lol

  162. sarahhazel says:

  164. Candy says:

    wow, she is pretty and can sing. Hmmm sounds familiar. OH please let Gladys get some pictures…

  165. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol wish I could shrink you down so you could! bring back vids!

  166. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–you can come with me if you want…..too many of us might get Gladys in trouble and us confiscated at the gate! :lol:

  167. kimk says:

    blue if I had a choice it would be.. Ed Sheeran writing for them and all three in concert together. ha we would need earplugs but who cares!!

    Sorry about that, looks like I was slow on the uptake with the Santa & David picture. Didn’t see it previously posted.

  173. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–me too!!!….gonna let loose and won’t care what peeps say…..haha!

  174. Candy says:

    kimk-April 2014 might be a good time to go ;)

  175. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–that’s OK! :D

  176. kimk says:

    blue Ed Sheeran? he is on the radio here a lot a fabulous young artist from England like Jason Mraz I guess? here is a song of his.. A Team
    http://youtu.be/X0dnp5E8FMo
    not a pretty boy but that is good. he is known for what he can sing about.
    he sings to what folks are feeling.
    he also wrote 1D’s latest single Little Things. really cute.

  177. blue says:

    ooooo that ed sheeran guy is good. i like that a lot.

  178. Patty-Ann says:

    I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone here a very Happy Thanksgiving.

    Follow your hearts and let your conscience be your guide. That’s always been my motto and how I like to live. Live and let live. Let It Be.

    Thank you FOD for all you do.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

  179. sarahhazel says:

    April is usually the hottest month of the year in the Philippines….yikes!…..which will be made even hotter by you-know-who!…..good luck!!! ;)

  180. blue says:

    he should keep his own songs. he’s got a nice voice. but then again they probably paid him well for that song.

  181. sarahhazel says:

    Hi, Patty-Ann! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  182. kimk says:

    Candy have to get myself a passport.. I am so lame!

  183. kimk says:

    ohh she IS pretty.. ha Archubabies would be downright gorgeous and bet they would sound like angels!!

  184. Candy says:

    I hope all of those that commented on that blog feel the same when Gladys does her live chat…most were in the chat last time..sort of hypocritical!

  185. kimk says:

    can’t take anymore drama.. after this last election reading all the hate.
    enough is enough.

  186. blue says:

    kimk – oh, he sings that a team song. now i know who he is. i really liked that song till i paid attention to the lyrics. a friend of mine killed herself on drugs just a little while ago.

  187. sarahhazel says:

    blue–OMG…so sorry about your friend. :(

  188. nora says:

    Patty Ann I agree with you totally. Going to enjoy all the music David left for us, maybe we can all hitch a ride with Gladys to Chile. Will wait patiently for David to return in2014 and will always trust the Archuleta to know what is best for him. Thanks FOD for all you do for us fans to keep us busy, and Kari for all you do for us and David.

  189. Candy says:

    kimk it will be a hot time to be there in more ways then one!

  190. kimk says:

    blue he sings about what folks go thru.. yes I also have a close relative that has issues. very sad indeed really and so hard for all concerned.

  191. nora says:

    kimk-also agree with you can’t take anymore drama, we did have enough hate during the last election, now is time to move on, hate never got anybody anywhere.

  192. kimk says:

    Candy ha I like the heat.. bring it on!

  193. blue says:

    sarahhazel – thanks.

  194. Tracy says:

    If David was to perform with 1D that would be a hugh hugh thing for David, now that would honestly kill a few young ladies, not to mention us older ones. Even ED. wow i can just imagine it now.. :)

  195. blue says:

    kimk – yeah, it’s hard to know what to do. you can’t force a person to be ok.

  196. Tracy says:

    And those 1D lads can sing….

  197. kimk says:

    Tracy yup they can sing.. also they are fun without being out there.

  198. Tracy says:

    Kimk- I agree, I have listened and watched a few videos of those boys and I do like. Their music is upbeat and fun…

  199. Tracy says:

    I sometimes wonder if David had started out in a band, if it would of helped with his shyness and confidence. Some of those boys were shy too and they helped each other through to be more confident.

  200. blue says:

    too bad 1D aren’t girls. would be more fun of a concert/colab if they were girls.

  201. kimk says:

    Tracy maybe when he gets back? hope his time away gets him out of his funk.

  202. Candy says:

    kimk-Ha, I hope he leaves his dork funk in the mountains of Chile.

  203. kimk says:

    blue ha maybe when David gets back there will be a girl group he can join.
    how about that drummer Kates?

  204. blue says:

    yeah he can kate can sing a…..wait i dont think she sings.

    ah i’ve got to get stuff done.

    happy thanksgiving everyone!

  205. tami lyn says:

    wow i don’t even know what to think right now. we do know david wants a career when he returns so i hope when 2014 comes around some of us will still care but i won’t be surprised if alot of his fans move on and try to forget about him :( it’s sad that some fans have to make other fans feel bad for wanting just a little bit of communication :(

  206. Tracy says:

    I cringe when watching some of those old interview when he talks about himself as a dork or not a kissy holding hand person…

  207. sarahhazel says:

    blue– :lol:

  208. Candy says:

    tami lyn-didnt make me feel bad, just reinforced my wish to remain a free thinker. Group think went out when Lincoln became President…and thankfully so!

  209. Candy says:

    Tracy-I had to laugh at his “Holding hands is gross” All I could think of was the boys in my sixth grade class and “Girls have Cooties”

  210. angelbymyside says:

    Well, well, well….I see a blog has surfaced! Oh and an anonymous one at that! Some people just like to stir the pot. It’s drama for drama’s sake imo. :(

  211. Candy says:

    Oh but abms-you must have missed the point..the title was “Less Drama” ;)

  212. angelbymyside says:

    blue ~ So sorry to read about your friend. My condolences!

  213. kimk says:

    all I hope for is David comes back a man.. and not a hater.

  214. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ “Less Drama”… I am thinking that title escaped them.

  215. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ David could never come back a hater…not in a million years.

  216. Tracy says:

    2014 can’t come soon enough!!

  217. Candy says:

    kimk-it will be interesting to see if he comes back as non judgemental as when he left, or will time in seclusion from the secular world have changed that.

    Hello everyone. Went to get more Thanksgiving food. I think we got everything now. My daughter called and invited us to her house. Looks like I’ll be cooking Friday instead.
    Whew! What happened here? Sounds like we got someone’s unmentionables in a bunch without even trying.

    Does anyone know how to get someone’s address so you can send them something?

  220. ray (aka)rooster says:

    something is just not right about that blog,i respect david ,and he wants to be a missinary,and no one other then a moeman know what he is doieing,just doesen,t fit,after all galdys was giveing permision to attend the (the concerts you might say) and they must know she is a fan,and will relay what she see and heares back to the fan base, i personaly think david knows this,and lets her come ,it his way of connecting with us without being any different from his other elders,hope you get what i mean,very depressingh today on here makes me not want to come back

  221. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Oh and that picture of David and Santa is like a great Christmas Card to us. Thanks Kari. :grin:

  222. angelbymyside says:

    supergrand ~ we can’t win for trying. Some peeps like drama it seems.

  223. kimk says:

    Candy should of said that.. non judgmental. hope the same old David but a more mature comes back to sing for us. why I was drawn to him in the first place. always seemed to love all folks.. ha even fools like me.

  224. Candy says:

    ray-dont you dare do that…that is exactly what they want, to control fans. Love David to death but Im going to go on enjoying my fandom, not being intimidated by others.

  225. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ that is what I love about David…he is “non-judgmental”.

  226. ray (aka)rooster says:

    i an,t done yet,there you have it mormon fans agasint non mormon fans.at this rate he won,t have manny non morman fans left ,,and all the planning he has done will be for not,

  227. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ray(aka rooster) – Yes, it depresses me too but we have to think The Other Side Of Down. We are great loving, respectful fans of David. He knows we love him and wouldn’t hurt him for anything in this world. Please stay. For David. :smile:

  228. Candy says:

    SGJ-youre right, it does look like a post card, Currier & Ives David style!

  229. sarahhazel says:

    abms @7:38–OMJ…didn’t see that….”More Music, Less Drama”???….what’s up with that title or sub-title???
    CONTRADICTORY TO THE MAX…….bwahahahahahaha!

  230. tami lyn says:

    candy~ i admire your attitude and perspective! i’m gonna try to think more like u! :) i think “they” did know this would cause drama and i bet “they” are here right now reading every comment.

  231. sarahhazel says:

    ray—Noooooo!!!….please stay!!!….who we gonna call for ODD emergencies???!!!
    (just kidding) :)

  232. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn DWTS on now. Paula Abdul is going to on too. Fingers crossed for Apolo and Karina.

  233. sarahhazel says:

    They can intimidate all they want…..ain’t gonna work! :mad:

  234. Candy says:

    oh Tami lyn-I would stake my life on it!! Being their non-judgmental little selves! I actually find it amusing…
    Besides Ray you cant leave us…you need to be here to revive us when he comes strutting across that stage in 2014 singing like Enrique 2.0 and looking like one hot, spicy latino!

  235. muldur says:

    Candy, i posted a comment on that blog and I openly stated I was at that last chat and that I felt bad afterward. That may make me imperfect but it doesn’t make my hypocritical.

  236. musicof8 says:

    Lurker delurking here. Ray I believe you are right. A way to stay connected even indirectly and I read that Gladys has been confirmed to two Christmas devotionals so far. They and he must know IMO. Oh and David and non judgmental, one and the same.

  237. Candy says:

    The VOICE rules!! Two going home tonight…How is Cassadee Pope # 1 on itunes from last night…

  238. cc halo says:

    Another theory: When David was in Asia, feeling all the intense love and support there, he enthusiastically promised he would do what he could to stay in touch. But once he came home to Utah, and seriously started to prepare for his mission, the fan fervor died down, the religious fervor began to take over, and he ended up asking for privacy.

  239. tami lyn says:

    sgj~ omg yes! apolo is so so beautiful!!! wonder if karina fell in love with him??! gonna be a nervous wreck again watching these eliminations!

  240. Candy says:

    Oh I hope Apolo doesnt go home….think he is as fabulous on the dance floor as he is on the short track!

  241. Candy says:

    Nancy-I didnt read all of the comments, I was surprised to see those that pointed the Respect finger also in the chat. I didnt name anyone personally.

  242. sarahhazel says:

    Good luck to Apolo & Karina!

  243. angelbymyside says:

    come to think of it another song that is perfect for today. “Everybody Wants To Rule The World.”

    Hope I’m not beating a dead horse, but I read (skimmed) that blog, and I think it was a very weak point that he didn’t say where he was going on his mission. In Asia, he talked about a Spanish influence (hint, hint), and his friends and family were dropping huge hints. It was pretty par for the course for David in the past. He’s never been one to reveal things ahead of time.

  249. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn I love him, I don’t know how Karina can resist!! :wink:Candy- I loved him in the Olympiccs and when he danced with Julieanne he was hot.

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

    Hello Everyone!
    I posted a comment to that blog, couldnt help it. Wondering if I should post it here or not. Not that I’m any great commenter, lol, just tried to give another view.

  251. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Aww He’s great.

  252. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ would love to read your point of view but won’t give that blog another hit.

  253. Amanda Jane says:

    Hey folks! Interesting evening eh? Geez.

    When did you post your comment Beth, I didn’t see it just now? (or maybe I didn’t look hard enough…)

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

    Here it is abms:
    I believe everyone here cares for David, but I find offense that you have all the answers, you know what David meant, you know whats in his heart, you know above everyone else. Well, I too, care very much for David, the fact that his mission is his first prioriity, where his attention is focused. All David fans understand that. The “warning” pics posted are posted so people who dont want to see them dont have to, simple, isnt it. David gave us so many wonderful gifts to enjoy while he’s gone, he worked so hard, we appreciate it more than we can ever express. However, he did say he would see what he could do in regards to communication with his fans. Will things change at some point, I dont know, fine if it does, fine if it doesnt. Yes, Kari handles things for him, but fans wishing they get a 2 sentence statement from him every 6 months, like hey the people & weather are great here, my spanish is improving, love the food,lol, there is nothing wrong with that, not invading his privacy, not hurting him. Be worried when no one wants to hear anything from him. Yes, there is a fan went to the concert David had in Chile recently & shared info with us. She has also been given the ok to go again in Dec. Its a way to stay connected to David, yes we like that, but judging from the details, David had a blast, loves to perform, the joy of music is deep within his heart & it reaches our hearts, even at this distance. But we dont have him bugged, attached to GPS or watching his every move by satellite. The man set up a post office box, so people can send him cards & letters, he wants to stay connected to us. How about each fan does what they feel is right, be responsible for your own actions & let it go at that. There are many, many fans that you seem to be chastising, who are doing incredible things in Davids name, helping fellow fans, helping out with charities, people in need. While I respect your right to say what you feel, what you all feel, so does everyone else. How about having more faith in David, he’s a man, capable of many, many things, including understanding that his fans love him, care about him, want whats best for him, keeping the homefires here in Archuletaville buring, until he returns, includes talking about the wonderful gifts he gave us, the music that still is coming our way & if we get a sentence or two, a detail or two from a fan, a pic every 6 months, so what? Now, if we all got in a plane, train or boat & made our way to Chile, with David posters & chased him down, that wouldnt be good,lol. Everything is fine, dont create problems where there are none. Enjoy your family & friends during the holidays(playing Davids CFTH cd, of course), everything is good! I should’ve counted to 10 before I typed this comment, but honestly was a little frustrated, so I had to comment, but I do wish you all the best. Take Care!!!

  255. tami lyn says:

    beth~ thanks for posting your comment here. i went to that blog but did not see your comment there.

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

    Hey AmandaJane! I used another name because of the email address I used, so I just printed it here. Havent talked to you in a while, hope you are well :grin:

  257. josie says:

    Um….hi. lol.

  258. Amanda Jane says:

    Hey Beth, thanks for bringing it here, I am well and hope you are also! :) And thank you for your wonderful comment. “dont create problems where there are none” may just be my new motto, for more than just David-fandom.

    And yeah, abms, not another hit from me either. Pff.

  259. tami lyn says:

    went to twitter and followed “lessdrama/more music”. wonder who this person is???

  260. Philly Fan says:

    I hope all these fans that want respect for David’s privacy(which I believe he is getting) while he is away and continue to remind us of that fact will continue to support and buy his music in bulk when he returns because if this pettiness continues it will allienated his fanbase even further which he will need for his return in 2014 if he wants to come back and be relevent again in the music business. Remember first and foremost what brought the fans here to this site was his music/voice not his religion affiliation. I have been lurking on this site since it began and David has amazing diehard fans and please let’s keep it that way. No one is stepping out of line on David’s privacy issue for his mission. Every fan has the right to discuss whatever and not feel intimidated by what is being discussed. JMHO.

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

    Tami Lyn :grin: Sure, no problem.

  262. kimk says:

    Candy Cassadee Pope was amazing last night.. no wonder why she is #1 on itunes.
    not only that she was styled perfectly looked like a star and sang with heart.
    http://youtu.be/jjfWYKe3baU

  263. angelbymyside says:

    Beth ~ BRAVO!! :)

  264. Anita says:

    Apollo’s gone! Noooooo!!! I wanted both he and Melissa as the final two. I’m royally disappointed!

  265. angelbymyside says:

    tami lynn ~ they have a twitter? what next?

  266. Candy says:

    Thank you Beth, so well stated and not because I agree with what you wrote but because it was done in a non accusatory way.

  267. Grammyj says:

    The respect/good fan/bad fan has been beaten to death. Everyone has already made up their mind on what they feel about that. Another blog was completely unnecessary as we have all heard it before and no one is going to change their mind. I fail to see how the few things I know about David on his mission invades his privacy in the least. Gladys was given permission to go to David’s concerts in Chile and it’s crazy to think that it’s a bad thing to know what he sang. If it makes people feel better that they are great fans because they know nothing about David on his mission then good for them. Just don’t tell me that I’m a bad fan because I “gasp” saw a picture of David in a white shirt and tie in a picture from Chile.

  268. tami lyn says:

    anita~ i am so sad! :(

  269. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol probably someone like the person who was slamming David and Jeanette M when she was at that event and her shoulders were not covered up. folks make up accounts to say wild stuff.
    had to report that other nutty one as they started to post pics and say really bad things about both artists.

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

    Amanda Jane, glad to hear you’re doing well, I’m doing ok. Dealing with a couple of things, but hoping for the best. Looking forward to the 4 day weekend, thats for sure. I have to remember to set aside 3 or 4 hours to read all the sale ads for Friday, well, actually Thursday evening, :lol: SO MANY ADS to look at,lol.

  271. Amanda Jane says:

    Is it too late to send a card to get to David by Christmas? I’m embarrassed I haven’t done it yet…

  272. kimk says:

    Apollo might be gone but heck Derek and Shawn were amazing last night!!

  273. Candy says:

    kimk-I wasnt as impressed with Cassadee, she had a get song but other nights for me she was sort of meh. Ha, she’ll probably end up winning!

  274. kimk says:

    Amanda Jane just mailed mine today and this is what Kari said.

    Nance from CT ‏@KOKO21
    @kariontour Hi, Kari! Happy Thanksgiving (early)! Can you pls tell me when we have to get our b-day/Christmas cards for David to you? Thx!

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @KOKO21 thanks! By next week please!

  275. Amanda Jane says:

    Beth ~ the 4 day weekend at T’giving is my absolute FAVE! Christmas can fall in the middle of the wk and you get no break, no rest, but T’giving and the 4 days are just beautiful! Are you going out Black Friday/Thursday? I like to go out just to watch the people…

    Anyone else have Black Friday game plans, lol?

  276. tami lyn says:

    kim~ i agree! derek and shawn were totally amazing!

  277. Candy says:

    wawawaaw, not Apolo…*Sniff*

  278. kimk says:

    Candy all I saw was this as not really watching every minute of the show.. who do you like?

  279. angelbymyside says:

    Amanda Jane ~ I just mailed mine today

  280. kimk says:

    tamilyn this knocked me out!!

    lol all I am thinking is hope David does DWTS!!

  281. kimk says:

    josie hi!

  282. Candy says:

    kimk- Dont have a favorite but like all of Cee Lo’s Team, they’re quirky, unique and can sing! Dont know why but I cant warm up to Amanda Brown…

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

    Thank You abms :grin:

    Thank You Candy :grin:

    kimk, you’re kidding? Jennette looked adorable, what is wrong with people?

    GrammyJ, Right on sister :grin: I can dig it :cool:

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

    AmandaJane, I went shopping at Midnight last year, kinda fun, not sure if I will this year, depends what kind of mood I’m in. I want to try to make a video this weekend, not sure if I will be able to, we’ll see.

  285. tami lyn says:

    omg what happened to NBC???!

  286. kimk says:

    Beth lol there is some crazy stuff on twitter.. not just me!

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

    kimk, lol, thats for sure, but you’re not crazy, you’re the sanest person I know. Oh My Heck, if thats true, I’m in trouble :lol:

  288. kimk says:

    tamilyn umm no clue what happened?

  289. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    SGJ, if you’re still online, I didn’t your note to me from yesterday until now. Thank you so much for being so sweet. You can email me at cpringle80@yahoo.com and I’ll send you my mailing addy. Thank you again :)

  290. tami lyn says:

    my NBC channel went off right before they announced the final elimination!!!!

  291. kimk says:

    Beth got to take it all with a grain of salt not so literal is all you can do. folks vent there I suppose for the most part? but this was a little too off the wall for reasons I won’t say.
    was a tad scary after a while.
    guessing jealousy was a part of it.

  292. Charlotte says:

    Please guys, no DWTS spoilers. It hasn’t aired here yet and I kinda like to be surprised.

  293. sarahhazel says:

    Charlotte–JUST DON’T PAGE UP/SCROLL UP THE COMMENTS!

  294. kimk says:

    speaking of Derek Hough and well.. oh man
    yup another hot mormon boy FTW!!

    http://youtu.be/VcpvccSPkhM

  295. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, I totally agree with you Grammy J, well said! I hate to see fans divided over this, can’t we agree to disagree and leave it at that? I love this fanbase and I am proud to be part of it.

  296. kimk says:

    tamilyn oh nos!!

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

    kimk, know what ya mean. Plus, people feel a certain freedom to say things on twitter, they wouldnt say in person.

  298. Charlotte says:

    Sarahhazel, gotcha ;) I try to avoid spoilers lake the plague for all the shows I watch, though sometimes it can’t be completely avoided.

  299. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth@8:35 BRAVO. So will stated.

  300. cq#DA2014 says:

    Oops, that’s well, not will.

  301. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth Hi and :grin:

  302. Charlotte says:

    SGJ, did you see my note to you above. I got your message from yesterday. You can email me at cpringle80@yahoo.com for my mailing addy. Thank you again for being so sweet :)

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

    Thank You cq :grin:

    Hey supergrand!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh a message, well, more like a request from The Fine Feathered Fearsome Fivesome. For thanksgiving, would you all consider going with hambergers instead of turkey????? I think you can understand the sentiment behind this request. Its out of concern for the fellow feathered brethryn, that they make this request. They say that sweet potatoes with marshmellows, mashed potatoes & gravy, green been salad & cranberries, oh & sage stuffing go great with hambergers :grin: I told them to go fly a kite, I’m having turkey. They havent spoken to me since yesterday :roll: :grin:

  304. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Charlotte-I see it. I’m going to email you now. I haven’t received them yet and they are coming hopefully the same time. Okay I’m going to email you now

  305. Charlotte says:

    SGJ, thanks :)

  306. nora says:

    sometimes the best thing to do with people who think they know what is best and they have all the right answers is to ignore them and continue doing what you want to do, the more you pay attention the more they will tell everybody what they think is best for David. I think we are respectful of his wishes, and don’t care what anybody else thinks, let them do what they want, if that makes them happy. So from now on i’m just going to ignore them. JMO

  307. Anita says:

    I’M SO SORRY EVERYONE! I shouldn’t have mentioned about the DWTS results. I wasn’t thinking!

  308. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Okay, sent Charlotte the email now I have to go vote for David. BBL

  309. Charlotte says:

    SGJ, got your note and sent one back. Thank you again so much. I’ll join you in the voting :)

  310. josie says:

    So…I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching, re-grouping, re-prioritizing..and I feel that I need to be a better steward of how I spend my time. I need to be using my own talents, make myself more available to those I see each day, & try to reach out to others in need. There are sooo many hurting people out there, & what’ve I done to reach out to them? I’ve been sitting on a phone talking to peeps about a guy I care about who sings really well.

    I dunno know why it took so long for the light to go on. Guess I kept thinking, “David needs me. And I promised him that I’d always be there.” But the answer that kept coming back was “What about those you cross paths with every day? Don’t you don’t think they need you, too? Don’t they deserve your time as well?”

    Plus, the fan bickering & certain topics literally wore me down, & the last year has been pretty hard on me. So I had to emotionally detach myself a bit, re-focus on what’s most important in life, try not to get involved in things that aren’t worth it(like THIS), & let me tell you…I’m much happier already. I just feel….free. And I can care about David on my own terms now. :)

    And that probably made no sense. lol.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  312. tami lyn says:

    beth~ your comment is still not there.

  313. McKenzie Harris says:

    Reading that pleaseprivacyplease blog scared me more than anything I’ve read in a long time. Wow. Unbelievable. I won’t say anymore specific because what I have to say is not good.

    By the way, David answered my question about whether he could communicate with fans during his mission and contrary to what others may claim, his answer was that he would try his best. That his time was limited on the computer and that with the limited time he had, he would understandably be communicating with his family. See 2:45 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q46ujY8YK-g&sns=em It is very possible, therefore, that his lack of direct communication with is simply due to lack of time rather that some goal of being completely isolated from the outside world during the mission.

    I will conclude by saying that everything I do online is to support David in his career. David needs more fans that do what I do. Bieber, 1D, Jonas had many, many fans like me. That contributed to their success. To me, that blog – although clearly well intentioned – is offensive to a large segment of David’s fanbase, myself included. It will damage David’s career and his ability to do what he loves when he returns in 2014. It is sad and scary that those claiming to love David so much cannot see this.

  314. cq#DA2014 says:

    Josie, To each his own of course, but to me being a fan and being involved with David’s fansite is just fun and my life has not suffered one bit by having this hobby. Hope you will be a fan again when he returns to his awesome music career.

  315. kimk says:

    Mac couldn’t read it.. folks have been scaring me silly since the election. on both sides.
    not going anywhere just ignoring.
    guess like nora said to do.

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

    tami-lyn, I went there a few minutes ago, but it says its waiting on moderation. Dont know why I can see it & you cant. Maybe people can see their own comments while their in moderation, dont know? I used a different name there.
    Again, I say G’night :grin:

  317. kimk says:

    Josie hear ya.. me just doing the fun stuff and lol a lot of unfollowing.
    as for attending to those you care about.. should always be the case.

  320. nora says:

    josie, I can understand how you feel, but hope you won’t stay away forever. I’ll continue to comment on fun things David and stay away from controversial things, they never solve anything. Just be here for David in 2014, that is all that counts. Where is Rainbow when we need it!!!! Just did my 100 votes for him, second time today. Josie take care.

  321. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth, sweet dreams. Just finished voting on Musiqtone and others. Now I’m tired. Josie- I hear you. Now that the holidays are coming we should be concentrating more on our family and friends and taking better care of ourselves too. Take care and hope to see you here whenever you want to spend some time with us.

  322. cq#DA2014 says:

    YES, Nora, bring on the RAINBOW mv. We need some fun lighthearted topic to talk about. DAVID WE NEED YOU, please come home, hahahahhahahaha!!!!

    ok. was just wondering.
    Hi everyone!
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving (again). :)
    Saying Goodnight.

  329. meganloves2lol says:

    Just kinda feel like i want to share my thoughts on this blog thing. maybe i’m here a little late, but whatever. i haven’t read it yet. But i’ve been seeing things about mormons saying that they are the one true church and they are the only ones saved. just don’t feel like holding back my feelings right now. i hope with all my heart David does not feel that. what bugs me is the fact that i would NEVER say that to anyone. I used to go to a lutheran grade school, and one year a mormon family started there. Before i found out they were mormon, they became my really good friends. we didn’t talk about religion much, but when i found out they were mormon it did not bother me at all. I went to church with them a couple times. But one time they told me that they were for sure saved, and i wasn’t positively saved. NOBODY has the right to tell you if your saved, unless you are Christ himself. When i would talk about my faith to them, it wasn’t impressive because, i wasn’t mormon. Often i wonder if that’s how David is. i hate to think i could tell david all my religious experiences, and he’d be like “eh. it’s not real cuz your not mormon”. wish i could read david’s mind and see how he feels about this. I have a cousin who is a Lutheran minister and he his wife spend soo much time putting mormons down. Ever since they found out i like this mormon singer, they try to tell me how horrible they are. this is not what religion is suppose to be about. we need to come together and worship God together, we all believe in the same God. What we’re doing here is not very Christ Like. There isn’t one true church, any church that worships Jesus Christ is true. i give all religions respect, and i hope that the mormons can do the same for my religion.

  330. josie says:

    Awwww, tks, guys. I’m not like “leaving leaving”, though. I’m just dialing it back it a bit. lol. “Fan” is such a weird word, anyway. haha. I just consider myself someone who cares a lot about D, and that will never EVER change…You’re right, kimk, about always being there for those we care about. That should be a given.

    sgj~ Thanks! You have a great Thanksgiving, too. And everyone else. TTYL.

  331. nora says:

    kimk-thanks for the falling stars video, made me happy also, now I think I can say good night and have some sweet David Dreams. All things David!!!!!!! Maybe I’ll get my FEE cd tomorrow. and finally have RMV to make me happy.

  332. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight everyone See you tomorrow. Goodnight nora. sweet David dreams.

  333. Anon says:

    Can someone tell me if I’ve got the timeline right?

    1. FEE released a few weeks ago and Rainbow vid coming soon, this just a few months after Begin and another video, just a few months after another CD and video just a few months after a full fledged mini-series in which he was the star.
    2. But, complaints upthread that David’s “team” isn’t doing enough to get David’s name out there.
    3. Complaints that serious David is boring and he better shake that seriousness when he comes back or he will have no fans.
    4. Whining that he’s not sending photos and updates from his mission and how can he expect anyone to stay being a fan if he doesn’t at least do that.
    5. Comments trashing his religion and all mormons in general.
    6. Then, general outrage against a blog suggesting that maybe, for some strange unaccountable reason, he wanted his mission time to himself and as a break from all of your ‘support.’

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the absurdity.

  334. kimk says:

    David and Ray!!
    this was so epic!!

  335. Ali says:

    Hey Anon!
    Happy to see you spreading your cheer to multiple fansites! :)

    I say you should laugh. I hear it burns more calories.

  336. cq#DA2014 says:

    Ah, Anon was wondering when you going to show and tell us all that we are all horrible fans.

  337. applegreen says:

    I am a fan of David Archuleta, the singer . As long I have music from him, I am happy.
    will be here when he comes back ( hopefully still keen on a singing career ). And i am very sure many will come to back to find out about him in 2014. Many are moving on with their lives now, as it should be. But I am sure many are also lurking at various fansites now and then…they are just not active posters. And like me, many are also doing their voting duties for David. Let’s not worry about what certain people should and should not do for his future etc etc…Just be a true fan of this gifted and wonderful singer.

  338. Ali says:

    applegreen – very nice comment. i agree!

  339. kimk says:

    man I miss David’s giggle! he is just too cute!

  340. Janel aka Nellie says:

    It was cool to run into Papa FOD (Richard Parkinson) tonight at the Orem Piano Gallery. Usually our Chauntenettes choir practices there on Wednesdays but we practiced tonight because of the holiday. He was recording something in the concert hall we practice in (he has a studio there too). Was surprised to see him come out of there when he was done. I intro’d him to some of the ladies who arrived there early. It was good to see him. Haven’t seen him since David’s mission announcement concert. :)

  341. Ali says:

    kimk – creepiest laughing vid ever http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb5pr-H6m24 lolol

  342. Candy says:

    Anon-I know how your feel..every time you show up, I dont know whether to laugh or cry, oh the absurdity of it all.

  343. kimk says:

    Ali wth!!?
    lol that is not even funny. creepy!!

  344. Candy says:

    Ali-LOL what is with the video…too funny!

  345. Ali says:

    hahahahaha. yeah, that video is a keeper ;)

  346. Candy says:

    Good Night all, sleep well as we head into Thanksgiving.

  347. Ali says:

    Night, Candy!
    Big day of shopping for me tomorrow. Not cooking at my house but I’m totally taking ingredients to those better equipped for the job lol.

  348. Connie says:

    Just popping in to say I am still here…work keeps me from commenting much…but I am not going away-ay-ay. 2014 can’t come soon enough. It makes me sad to see these flare ups of drama…but not gonna bother with letting that get to me. Just going to turn on some David music. I appreciate all of your comments! I love to check in at the end of each day.

  349. McKenzie Harris says:

    Anon,

    I’m absolutely comfortable in saying that none of my support for David – way too many tweets, posts, votes etc – has offended a large portion of his fanbase or ignited destructive fan wars. Can you or the writer of that blog say the same? Who is really supporting David?

    It’s the fans who post regularly here that are driving other fans away. I don’t invite other fans to this site any more because there’s so much fighting that goes on. The regular commenting fans talk about other people acting like they know it all and how condemning they are, but they do the same things. I’m sick of coming here only to read about how David has to be more sexy and be more like other stars that have made it big. Please, you are turning off so many fans. You act like a giant click who alone knows what’s best for David and his career. David’s career is in his hands: not ours. I suggest you get over it. Thanks for hearing me out.

    I can’t figure out the point of FEE at all. I’m a pretty insane fan, but I really don’t want another similar David CD/DVD. It’s too much. I can wait to see the Rainbow video. I’d buy it for a couple of bucks if it was on iTunes, but I really don’t watch the few videos I own that much–even SBL (which I love).

    Regarding the privacy issue: I found it ironic that when David started his mission, it wasn’t the fans who were hounding him, it was the missionaries themselves. Almost nothing has been posted while on his mission except by missionaries, the young people of Chile who were invited to the first devotional, and by the mission website. (As far as I know, Gladys only posted the story of her own experience, which she had every right to do).

    Please hear me out, lighten up, we are fans, we don’t really know David personally. We are talking about David the entertainer. I’m sure that we all know that we could talk and wish all we want out of David, but we know we have no control over him other than stop supporting him by not buying his music. As a fan, I would rather have any conversation than not have any at all. He needs all fans, yes, even those that think he should loosen up a bit, lol.

    cq – Lol don’t worry about it. Please hear me out = Anon.

    I will admit its been quiet around here the past few weeks. I guess some people just wanted to make sure we could still get worked up. Hey, maybe this means we’ll get the Rainbow video tomorrow?? Because that’s the way my brain works.

    Re FEE, although i already have Forevermores I bought one FEE to show support/interest for David’s music. IMO it’s gonna be a hard sell except for first-time buyers of Forevermore and buy-everything fans.

    Re Simon – he lost my respect when he went on the Tonight Show and Ellen days before the Final 2 competition and said he preferred Cook, Cook deserved to win, and “the other guy” had no personality. I usually forgive people for anything but I never forgave him for that.

    I was wondering why there were so many comments today. Well first off Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope everyone has a fabulous time with their love ones.

    Second, why is that blogger beating the dead horse AGAIN! I thought this topic was settle months ago. You do what is BEST for you but don’t tell someone they are in the wrong for doing the opposite. Hmm.. and that blog was suppose to unify us, hahaha….I don’t think so. Why do we need to be unified? lols I thought being a fan means supporting the artist, that is all.

    Seriously we don’t know D personally so how is it that this person who took the time to write that very very long blog know what is best for D and how he may feel and what we should do?? Are you a family member? A friend? His management? His publicist? I don’t get it? What makes you a better fan than me? I go to the same concerts, buy the same cds, t-shirts, watch the same youtube videos and basically fangirl over the same stuff. The last time I checked this was a FREE country and I will do whatever the heck I want. D is a celeb and folks will want pics and write about him it’s human nature. That can never be completely stopped unless he ends his career and never goes back to it. But D has told us countless time that he is coming back to his music career and actually still having it with FEE, BEGIN, FOREVERMORE , vids and NA. So he still wants it. He wants us to remember him and to keep supporting him. For someone that practices the strict privacy thing, that blogger sure knows a lot of details about what’s been happening. lols Did ya read all the mish blogs too? Plus D gave the ok for Glady’s to go to the show so he knows. He knows she is going to tell us. Come on, this person has got to know that right? Geezeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ……….this is driving me crazy again. lols…………..breathe girl…………………………………………Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy and lots of deserts……………:) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10…………….Tomato shields are up, come at me. :)

    Ok I’m going to take a deep breath now and stop there because steam was coming off my head. lols…. WE so need a “RAINBOW” right now.

    Happy Thanksgiving Again!

    Ok now I feel bad about beating the dead horse. lols Sorry about that guys and gals. I will go back to lurkdom and enjoy my holiday.

    Hi all

    We all love David and support him in many ways, this is undeniable. And the point of our site is to celebrate David Archuleta, the artist, and our writers work hard to share news/pix/stories/features that demonstrate David’s artistry and spirit. In doing that, our goal is to be inclusive of all fans, tolerant of different points of view no matter what our personal beliefs on issues and situations are. And we attempt to show respect in what we do and say, keeping things DA-rated and we ask that everyone here do the same.

    With that said, comments will be closed for a bit ~ Joanie is getting a new post ready for you, working into the wee hours of the night ~ to continue with that celebration. If you want to discuss further, pls email us at fodfrontpage@gmail.com ~ Pastel
