DA2014 Merch ~ The Winter Line-up and CONTEST!

A message from Karin (@zerogravity1) about the #DA2014 Merchandise!

Marshmallow Dream currently has the Winter #DA2014 line on their Facebook page. As always, 10% of the sales will go to Childfund International. We have already given Childfund International a check for $250 with more to come from the sales of the #DA2014 items.

With the launch of the Winter line, we are running a #DA2014 Contest!  Two lucky David Archuleta fans will each receive a bag (like the denim one below).  

How can  you win??? 

Send an e-mail to the DavidArchuleta2014 account discussing your favorite David performance, video or moment from the holidays and why it was your favorite  in 200 words less .  If you provide that paragraph or two, you will qualify to win and two names will be drawn at random from the entries.  

Please send them before Dec. 14th Midnight EST to DavidArchuleta2014@gmail.com and include your full name and address!

What a great contest, Karin!!!  And the link to the site is here to start ordering NOW…

http://www.facebook.com/#!/MarshmallowDreamMonogramStudio/photos_stream

Here are some more items!

**

NOTE:  The pink/brown bag with the bow at the top will also be available on the Marshmallow Dream site as well…the picture isn’t on the site yet.

Just like before you can use Paypal on Facebook or you can call them directly to place your order with credit card.  And you’ll be helping Childfund as well!

For some strange reason, I’m drawn to the beanie!  Like I said…its strange…..

Wait…Sarahhazel brought this over to comments!  Thanks Sarahhazel and misterarchuleta tumblr!

Angels Reaching Out with Caring Hearts

As tweeted by @nareejo yesterday.

I had to post about a special Christmas project planned in the Philippines.   This just warms the heart, and shows the creativity and inspiration shown by these fans.  Click on the pick below to go to the site:

From the site:

I know everybody’s been busy since the start of 2012 — David’s vacation este commitments here in Manila, doing personal stuff to lessen the missing mode from David’s 2-year mission and much more…

So while our Idol is making a difference in other people’s lives and spreading God’s love thru his mission, let’s make David be the source of our inspiration to keep going and help others too! Christmas is fast approaching and so is David’s 22nd birthday! Time to celebrate again while making a difference and putting a smile on others’ faces.

Fellow Archies, we are here for our next upcoming project.  We planted trees last year. This year, let’s bring out the child in our hearts alive more than ever…

So, GEAR UP AND PREPARE —> school supplies, old / unused clothes, toiletries, toys, children’s books, vitamins and healthy food stuff 

SAVE THE DATE! DECEMBER 29, 2012 (SATURDAY) at BAHAY MARIA CHILDREN CENTER…

Updates coming your way in the next few weeks…SPAZZ, SHARE and SPREAD THE WORD!!!

* * * * *

Music > Holiday > David Archuleta

The header in iTunes couldn’t have been closer to the truth.  And Christmas From the Heart is $7.99.  Perfect. And perfect.

And speaking of perfect, let me throw in a little Pat – a – Pan.  A few technical issues, and then he shines during this performance.  And….the ending!!!

And David’s voice message announcing CFTH tour!

And David’s music is getting airtime now!!!  Click on the tweet to go to this All-Christmas-Music radio site:

Slideshow put together by Vicki last  year!

….  So there was a guitar signed, and I know of a certain young lady who had a skate signed!  David is one accomodating guy :)

Here’s a vid of David standing on the table to greet his fans.  Love it!    Thanks to Maggie, Golden Archie, for uploading.

KSL.com has their own slideshow, you can view it  HERE. 

And  JR4DA uploaded the vid of KSL footage of the event.

And Janel took some great footage too!

Two Years Ago….

The Orla Fallon Christmas Special on PBS started to play this week 2  years ago!  Pre-airing interview solidifies David Archuleta’s status as a Teddy Bear :)

I think I’ll save the Pat a Pan for another time :)

  18. Janel aka Nellie says:

    That was embarrassing (my video) because I couldn’t stand the spotlight right in my eyes. Don’t know how David and other stars do it. I complained rather loudly. LOLOL.

  19. Janel aka Nellie says:

    My screencaps from that video. http://on.fb.me/QGrKbA

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

    Good morning chicas and chicos!! (Hope that’s right! My Spanish is,um, a little rusty. Alright, non-existent! :P)

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did! Sad to see it over. :( So, no sign of the Rainbow vid?? I thought it was supposed to debut before Thanksgiving.

    Anyways, this is a “drive-by.” Can’t stay but just wanted to say that I love you guys and miss you. Hope to chat again sometime soon. Have a wonderful day!! (((HUGS))) :)

  22. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Pastel I’m going to send you a DM. Thanks for checking.

    Kimk, Sarahhazel, thanks for all the tumblers and vids.
    I will do my voting right now, have a busy day today, will be in and out.
    COME ON RAINBOW MV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. kimk says:

    David’s Everybody Hurts is #3!!! :)

    Musiqtone.com ‏@musiqtone
    The final Top 12 is up: http://mtone.me/MbRlq8 …@DavidArchie falls short at no. 3 @taylorswift13 goes 1-2 for a 2nd straight wk!

    ohh.. falls short.. that sounds like a CHALLENGE!!!!!!

  26. nora says:

    good morning – mailman just came no FEE CD today either, I think WOW is sending it by horse and buggy!!!! Maybe I will get it before Christmas, I hope. Waiting impatiently for my RAINBOW

  27. nora says:

    kimk-where did you see that David was #3 on musiqtone.
    It still has the Beav at #3, when I checked. When do we start voting on the next round?

  28. Pastel says:

    ohmygoodness I think I’m going to devote an entire post just with tumblr finds from all of you! Thanks Sarahhazel, I just updated my post with the misterarchuleta tumblr beanie montage!

    Hope you are all having a great day!

  29. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, CFTH is at 501 on the overall albums chart, and 117 on the Christmas chart, not bad at all! Just thought I’d share that with you. Also David’s first album and TOSOD both versions and Begin hang in the top 1500 on Pop most of the time, BEGIN is in the 800s. Just a bit of info. Have a good day all!

  30. Lucy says:

    Can we be naughty and have a post in appreciation of David’s tight jeans? Just kidding! Would be interesting though!

  31. Kimk—Time to start some heavy voting on musiqtone for EHMV.
    We have been challenged and we thrive at challenges.
    So calling all Arches, let start our engines!!!!! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:

  32. lct#DA2014 says:

    Hey guys! I’m back from having a wonderful Thanksgiving visit with my son in London. Had Thanksgiving dinner and all the trimmings there as well! Got to see Let it Be – musical about the Beetles and Thriller Live – Michael Jackson music…. As I sat there and watched these talented singers/dancers/performers I thought to myself how these talented artists haven’t made it big yet artists like Taylor S, Justin B, Demi L have been successful! Just don’t understand!! Was able to vote, too! My son thinks I’m crazy but gave me a hug and is happy that I have interests! :)

  33. Oinkiers says:

    Good Morning everyone!! Hope all had a great holiday!!

  34. nora says:

    just voted my first 100 votes on musiqtone. Let us meet the challenge I know we can do it. It is so good to see him beat the Beav. Keep on voting BBL

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5T4d5pNTKQ … IF YOU TELL ME DAVID ARCHULETA CANNOT SING THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU. (and also, look at that hair.)

  42. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL Sarah, I’m slow on the uptake. VPOTD. Don’t initial things for me early in the morning. Ha….or maybe never. Took me awhile to figure out what the heck everyone was talking about with FEE. LOL

  43. lani says:

  45. sarahhazel says:

  46. Lct–Good to have you back, sounds like you had a great time at your sons in London.

    My family makes fun of me too because i love David so much, but they too are happy that i have an interest to keep me happy and David does just that,he brings such joy into my days everyday even with him gone.

  47. sarahhazel says:

    Don’t forget to squeeze in some votes here! NA & D still tops, TV5 2nd!!!

  48. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–Whatever makes you happy, right?! :D

  49. Candy says:

    HOLYCARP # 3!!! *TOSSING CONFETTI* WOOZA-THE POWER OF THE FANS!!
    How much do I like that David is ahead of the Big Boys…ALL of them!!

  50. Sarahhazel, why does it say that he fell short of 3rd place? Maybe i just read it wrong. Hope so!!!

  51. VaBeachArchie says:

    Back at the beach and on the VOTE! GREAT to see Everybody Hurts at #3! Have to get my votes in before work! Can we get to #2?

    THANKS sarahhazel for all the links! Welcome back lct!

  52. Candy says:

    Linda-I think it is saying that David almost knocked Taylor out of a top 1/2 finish with a strong third place finish. GO DAVID!

  53. lct#DA2014 says:

    Thanks VBArchie! I find that I’m able to vote on my computer, my husband’s computer and a mac that we both own! So I got in 300 votes! I’m gonna try the IPAD now!…. :)

  54. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–LOL, doesn’t matter what that tweet says….Leaderboard definitely says #3! Yay!!!

  55. Sarahhazel, Thanks for clearing that up for me.
    YEA!!!! Go Archies. Lets go for #2, i got 300 votes in yesterday, don’t know how, but it kept letting me vote. Of course not all at once. Just put in my first 100, will try again later. I also voted on The other poll. NA & David, are ahead & TV5 #2′
    We can’t let it slide though, it will end the 30th and who knows, they may try power voting. So we can’t slack off on that one either.

  56. sarahhazel says:

    I was in my car for a couple of hours yesterday taking my granddaughter to the airport & then driving home. Listened to CFTH & Glad Christmas Tidings. I could hardly drive because I had tears in my eyes the whole time. Can’t believe how much I miss that sweet, beautiful angel!!!

  60. Oinkiers says:

  61. Candy says:

    Love the simplicity- The face, the voice, the upbeat happiness. My fav David video to date!!

  62. Wonder why ivory doesn’t release RAINBOW MV video? Some fans already have it.

    Just curious?

  63. Candy says:

    THIS is what he needs to be doing when he gets back!!!

  64. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–Aww, (((hugs)))……be careful driving when listening….ODD goes on overdrive this time of year!

    Dillon Komula ‏@DKomula

    David Archuleta’s Christmas music is phenomenal to me. I don’t listen to his normal music, but he does have a really great voice.

  70. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, it must be like going on a treasure hunt for you every morning to find these wonderful gems about David. Pictures, tweets, tumblrs, info, everything. I in turn always share them on my FB groups. Thanks!

  71. Dangit!!! No video for me today. PlEASE release Official Video!!!

  76. glitter*girl says:

    omg strange! just got a verizon ad on my FB and the guy in it looks exactly like david!!! did he ever do an ad for verizon???

  77. glitter*girl says:

    did anyone else see it?! must be alot of guys who look like david!!!

  78. Grannycrush says:

    Wow! I just received my FEE, and just watched the DVD of Rainbow. David looks very much his age, and he looked like he was having so much fun. I am just amazed sometimes at many different looks David has and also how he can pretty much sing any kind of music and sound wonderful. I am going to go watch it again. Great video. How did they do all of this in such a short time. Probably helps that David doesn’t have to have a bunch of takes to get things done.

  79. Anita says:

    sarah-You got to see RMV on You Tube today?! Lucky you! I just looked and someone must have taken it down, because I can’t find it. I’m getting a bit frustrated! Ughhh!!!

  80. lurker says:

    Anita- It’s still up on youtube.

  81. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    HELLO everyone,I got my FEE album today. The other one I ordered hasn’t come yet. I ordered another one today.

  82. angelbymyside says:

    GOT THIS TODAY :D :D :D

    Isn’t it lovely…isn’t it wonderful? http://yfrog.com/moe6ffkj

  83. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Now I’ve gone bonkers. Forgot to tell everyone it is worth the wait. Loved the pics and videos today Pastel. Going to watch and listen some more. BBL It’s so wonderful that David is #3 on Musiqtone, great job everyone.

  84. Anita says:

    lurker-I still can’t find it, and am about to cry! I do plan on ordering the Expanded Edition very soon. I’m happy for those that got their copies in the mail.

  85. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Anita- Are they talking about a Rainbow Remix snippet on YT or the whole video? I tried and all I got was the snippet version.

  86. Anita says:

    Judie-My understanding is it’s the whole video. All I see is the snippet too! I almost feel like asking Kari about it, but I don’t want to sound like an impatient fan! Maybe I should just forget about Rainbow for a while.

  87. Martha says:

    Anita – look at my post at 6:01

    Sorry, it is the youtube vid posted on this site.

  88. Anita says:

    Martha-Oh my goodness! Thank you! Thank you! I’ll watch it in a couple minutes! I really appreciate it!!

  89. Martha says:

    Anita – Hurry, before its taken down again.

  90. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- Now that’s what I’m talking about. Thank you miss wonderful Martha. Long time no see. Your the greatest :grin: :grin:

  91. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Arghhh…to go peek on youtube or not…that is the question!

    Woot woot for those receiving their FEE’s in the mailbox! So happy for you. It’s always a spazzing exciting time when that little treasure arrives.

    Love that tweet about the old guy blasting David! You rock old man! :lol: (He’s probably really a spring chick but just seems ‘old’ to the tweeter. lol)

  92. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–long time no see!!!….miss ya!!!

  93. Isn’t illegally posting on you tube bad for David? Just wondering.

  94. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Time to make dinner. BBL

  95. sarahhazel says:

    Woot-wooting too for those who received their FEE’s today!!! :D

  96. Martha says:

    I rest my case. See you guys

  97. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- I don’t know. :wink: I already purchased three FEEs . Like somebody said it might sell some more albums.

  98. Sgj, could be. I ordered one but will order another one tomorrow, Where did you order from?? The one i ordered from WOW US.

  99. angelbymyside says:

    RAINBOW IS MY FAVORITE MUSIC VIDEO TO DATE!!!! THAT IS ALL!!!! ;)

  100. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–???…..you leaving again?…. :(

  101. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Ok, couldn’t resist for very long at all. :roll:

    I really like it. Its completely replay worthy too because of all the split screens, you have nearly 3 times as much to look at. Have to watch it multiple times just to catch everything. lol And i’m surprised how much I like the sound of the remix. I don’t really think of dance music as being my thing but I think they found the perfect balance on the sound! My only complaint – the orange lipstick – not quite the right colour. Love dancing david – remember that snippet of david dancing from AI – he’s wearing a brown jacket of some sort and they show brief snippets of all the guys dancing – well I could see little movements that remind me of that AI moment. :-)

  102. Candy says:

    Its probably going to be a no win battle to keep it from popping up on YT. I look at it as buzz, most that were going to buy the expanded cd probably already have.

    Got my FEE today so dont have to sneak a peek anymore. :)

  103. Candy says:

    Shanny-I hear ya about the orange lip color, but its a minor thing compared to the happy, gorgeous face that goes along with it. :)

  104. Itsalright says:

    Close up is great but could do without some of the hand motion,…Love the lower voice better then the high parts.

  105. Have to go teach a class at church BBL.
    I just voted another 100 times on Musiqtone, will try late tonight again.

  106. IsAlright,–Hand motions are part of David, he even talks with his hands. LOL!

  107. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Candy – absolutely. He does seem like he’s just plain old having fun doesn’t he! I wonder how they got him to loosen up to dance in front of the camera like that….i wonder if other people were also dancing around off camera so he didn’t feel so self conscious? lol

    :-)

  108. kimk says:

    ha what you don’t like perfectly shaped orange lips on guys.. err David!!?

  109. Candy says:

    All I have to say is when he comes back…he better dance!! No more holding out!!

    kimk-ha, not fair…thats a loaded question! LOL

  111. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I like the hand motions too – its quintessential David. And in some of them you can kind of see him giggle a bit after he does the hand motion. I like him how he is – no need to put on some false persona. Pure david. :-)

    sarahhazel think I saw a few that got it today!! very early!!

  123. josie says:

    Just poppin’ in real quick to say hi. :) I’m confused, lol. Where is everyone seeing the MV? It’s not on youtube anymore, is it?

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

    Hello Everyone! Congrats on those of you who got FEE in the mail today. I thought I did when I looked at my mailbox, but it was just a big envelope, drat :roll: I still got to see it today, via you tube & I’m not sorry I watched it, its fantastic, love it. I especially love the hand movements, thats half the fun of the video. Good grief, all of the stuff David did for us, the man is too generous :grin: By the way, I’ve bought a few FEE’s :grin: , so watching it, not a problem. Hey, seems like people on the east coast are getting it, so not to long before the midwest sees FEE in their mailbox :grin:

  125. kimk says:

    angel he has the prettiest lips.. nope couldn’t care what color either.
    ha well maybe black like he was going goth.. I might say.. baby I don’t think so! :)

  126. kimk says:

    sarahhazel huh we are back to #5? maybe 1D and JB team was not very happy!!

  127. kimk says:

    Beth oh yes his hands.. the no no no and the clinched fists. I swear his hands are a country on their own!!

  128. sarahhazel says:

    Dang, still no FEE today.

  129. glitter*girl says:

    i know what david’s gonna do when he gets back ;) lol

  130. sarahhazel says:

    josie–it’s on YT–David Archuleta Rainbow (Remix)

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

    kimk, ROTFL, His hands a country of their own, should be registered as lethal weapons & I just dont mean, being so great at using them to express himself, people have to watch themselves when they walk by him, lol, hands flying around like that. I hated that interview when he sat on his hands, I’m surprised he could talk while doing that. People have to let David be David :grin:

  132. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–yeah, seems like they retaliated fast….LOL…..

  133. sarahhazel says:

    He needs to insure those hands….$1 million…..each.

  134. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl—what? what?? what???

  135. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha his hands a mil, his lips his eyes.. priceless, his hair a gazillion,
    his voice well think of our national debt, could go on to other things but nope, nada, no way Jose!!!

  136. kimk says:

    well he is still #3 when we VOTE!
    love seeing him there and bet that is why the other two came back at us!!

    http://musiqtone.com/music/thecount/voting_thecountdown.php#votingbooth

  137. josie says:

    sarah~ Tks. I saw it. Cool beans. :) I have to be honest, though..I don’t really care for the song. Love David’s hand motions, though. tami-lyn~ lol. Wut??

  138. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Oh ,yeah…forgot the EYES, the lips, teeth…..heck, the whole face….LOL….that will cost a lot….haha!

  139. kimk says:

    Follow Me Ed Sheeran ‏@taviana_styles
    #3SexGods @Harry_Styles @NiallOfficial BUT MOST OF ALL @DavidArchie BECAUSE HES SO SPECIAL IN THE SONG “CRUSH”

    lol sexgod?

  140. sarahhazel says:

    josie–TBH, me too…can’t quite get the dubstep/remix thing….maybe I’m not used to it yet…..(do love the original arrangement more)…..but who cares about that, right?….a happy, dancey, gorgeous David is more than enough for me!!!

  141. sarahhazel says:

    kimk– ;)

  142. Anita says:

    Martha-I saw it! What a wonderful video, even though my computer is rather slow! I’m looking forward to getting FEE so I can really see the David in all his glory!! That remix is so cool! David’s vocals are stellar!!

  143. kimk says:

    sarahhazel not sure it is really dubstep.. more just a dancy type remix?

  144. kimk says:

    oh my gosh that no no no is YES YES YES!!!

  145. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–you’re right….& it probably sounds better on the actual CD!

  146. Itsalright says:

    Maybe it is the song itself im not fond of…David looks great as always and his lower vocals are to die for, maybe he will mature and grow out of the silly hand motions when he comes back. Nice close ups though.

  147. kimk says:

    really.. he is as loose as a goose in this video.. I love it!!

  148. kimk says:

    Itsalright I like his hand motions.. sure not someone like Enrique but it makes him him.
    unique.
    Diva hands!!

  149. kimk says:

    David has large hands.. for his size anyway.
    very nice ones at that too!

  150. sarahhazel says:

    Itsalright–I think the hand motions are cute….and so HIM…. :)

  151. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–”He’s go the whole world…in his hands…” <—Wait till he comes back!!!

  152. glitter*girl says:

    do DWTS!!! :)

  153. glitter*girl says:

    i say that because Disney owns ABC and they like David!!! :)

  154. Itsalright says:

    Oh I love David diva hands and Yes I know he has large hands and very nice hands at that, just some of those motions seemed at little premature but it doesnt matter,(i can just see some others making fun) because of it….. over all its a great video. :)

  155. applegreen says:

    re : musiqtone voting

    If you read the text on the right hand side about the voting count updates, that update was done on the 24th. ( david is third after voting is done on the 46th cycle). The next update will be on the 28th ( for the 47th cycle). So , don’t know what position he’s in right now…but keep voting folks.

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

    Itsalright, I dont think his moving his hands around are immature, something to outgrow, its to go along with the song, for the song. David what, did all of this in about a week? I think the video is fantastic, LOVE the hand movements, he’s moving to the song. If it was man in the mirror or Stayin’ Alive or Billie Jean, he would’ve done something different. Who knows what will happen when he returns, sky’s the limit :grin:

  157. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk, sarahhazel,& Beth The hands are David. “So Baby Just Smile”!! I’m with you gals, the hands are part of the handsome package. :roll: :lol:

  158. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- Just saw your question. I buy from WOWHd Australia. The package is mailed in a Hong Kong envelope. ????:wink: :roll:

  159. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Itsalright, there will always be critics. I think thats what David is kind of singing about in Beautiful. Wish it wasn’t that way. Hate that it hurts him but we can’t do anything about it but support him as much as we can and do our best to ignore the critics ourselves. Try not to worry abput what the critics might say. David’s got bucketloads of talent that way outshines any little nit-picking people might be able to drench up. At the end of the day, he’s the real deal while the others might be all shiny on the surface but their talent has no comparison to David. Any intelligent person can see that means something. :-)

  160. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny Thumbs up :smile:

  161. glitter*girl says:

    i like david’s hand movements cuz sometimes i like to secretly fantasize that he IS a diva and very difficult to work with and the sweet smiley thing it all fake!(he’s such a good actor) lol

  162. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- I’m watching DWTS and your girl Kelly is fantastic.

  163. SGJ, i just ordered fro WOW US So will see when it comes.

  164. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol you’re a pip.

  165. josie says:

    Itsalright~ Well, everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but if “they” consider his hand motions silly….it’s their loss. lol. That’s part of what makes David unique, & it’s part of what most fans love about him. I do get where you’re coming from. There have been times where I thought “That’s kinda cheesy.” But it’s also part of what keeps me interested. I wouldn’t want to follow someone who’s sophisticated, proper, super-polished or rehearsed…bleh. Boring. lol.

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

    supergrand, Hey, I’m watching too & yeah, I thought she was great :grin:

    glitter girl, yeah, sure, right,lol.

  167. glitter*girl says:

    thanks kim! LOL :)

  168. glitter*girl says:

    josie~ i so agree! his sometimes awkwardness and realness is what makes him so completely lovable :)

  169. Itsalright says:

    Shanny and Josie- I agree with you both. We know he is more talented then most out there but ya it worries me some don’t even give him a chance when they see things like the hand motion and other “kinda cheesy” things. I just want him to come back bigger then life singing eye of the tiger with his leg and foot kicked straight up to the sky, with the words “Look at me now” written all over him.. :)

  170. kimk – Please allow me to share this: Do you know that there are areas outside the US that still cannot see David’s video on VEVO? Up to this day there are certain David videos I cannot see if I opt to view them on certain channels, on certain radio online sites. MTV, etc… because they are within US territory.

    Do you know that we in Asia also have to wait for anything produced from the US? And although we whimper and crazily crave for them, most of us respect that waiting period. We have just been lucky in Manila cos he has been here more times that we could ever ever hope for.

    That’s why I have always been thankful to fans who gift Archies in Asia or share their concert videos with the world – stuff that we otherwise could have never enjoyed.

    I am thrilled when my co-Archies are gung-ho about anythingDavid but takes exception when some legitimate concerns are reduced to online drama. Producing music is tougher than ever. Sony has closed in Manila. Music businesses are consolidating. Most are still in a quandary on what to do with the internet. So am thankful for Ivory for the support they give to David. But am wary how long that support will last strong if there are more.. shall we say commercially viable options in the market.

    And oh yes I am frustrated that there are some who can go scot free uploading full materials that have been barely released. I used to think that that has never dampened the sales of the likes of JB, Madonna, Rihanna, One Direction, etc… but that’s the thing: they are them. They have their labels and they are widely acceoted in the US. David has a much smaller base to rely on. A much niche market if you may call it. Sometimes I feel that David is an acquired taste… I dunno… I just know that his music moves me and that I will support his career any way I can.

    End of rant and I hope I did not offend anyone or have not abused the hospitality that FOD has shown me in recent times.

  171. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ long time ago someone on twitter told me david was a rude diva and refused to sign an autograph for his daughter. i think either the guy was outright lying or maybe david was super tired and rushing somewhere or something. i’m sure that was an isolated incident.

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

    Gosh, thinking about all David did in the Phils, filming a 5 week, 5 nights a week series, appearances on the weekend, photoshoots for the hair products, record an album, film 3 videos, film the commercials he did, its amazing, I cant even believe it & I’ve seen it all, unreal. Then, then he comes home & records another album, films a video, a photoshoot(for what, hmmmmm :grin: ) all while he’s trying to get ready to go on a mission & spend time with his family & friends before he leaves. We, his fans, are so lucky, so Blessed :grin:

  173. nora says:

    just watched the video, OMG, he is so gorgeous, it would look silly if he didn’t move his hands to the music, that is one of the many things about David is how he expresses himself with his hands, David says he doesn’t pay attention to the critics, so why should we? I Looooooooove that video, maybe mine will come tomorrow I ordered it ages ago from WOW, US, i’m jealous that so many have got theirs.
    Thanks Martha for the info on the utube video, please come back, we have missed you.

  174. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Bwhaha glitter girl. You never fail to entertain! :lol:
    Well from all accounts, he’s super easy to work with and yet he has told us himself that there are certain things he won’t do and certain things he is very particular about. I think he knows how to pick his battles and when he has chosen, a person will have a very tough time fighting the Archuleta. And they will also probably find their days working with him are numbered – but they probably wouldn’t even see that coming. Kinda like the marriage bustup one spouse didn’t see coming. I bet people who try crossing him, see him as an easy target because he is super-nice but are then shocked to discover he’s a tough cookie who won’t be trodden on and used.

  175. Itsalright says:

    Those critics are the ones not buying the music…

  176. glitter*girl says:

    shanny~ well said! that was a perfect description of david!

  177. kimk says:

    Itsalright true that.. but pretty sure David won’t show up wearing overalls, tee and chains to meet the Pres or the Prime Minister if you get my drift?
    David knows he can sell more by going edgy. his choice.

  178. glitter*girl says:

    that’s why loving david is so much fun and yet it hurts. he’s the perfect guy in every way, almost unreal. u know u can’t have him but still u dream of someday waking up another person in a different place where there would be a chance to marry him LOL!

  179. I meant “.. voice moves me” instead of music

  180. kimk says:

    why are folks so stuck on David selling music.. if he wanted to all he has to do is what 1D or JB has done and go mainstream.
    soon as TOSOD was released it must of been quite obvious he doesn’t care about it all.
    just til now have I seen him and/or his team cares about selling cds.

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

    glitter girl, Yeah, David would never do that. I’ve never seen a celebrity bend over backwards for their fans like David has. Everything I stated in my previous comment, all he did for us, the day he was leaving for the Phils, he drove with Sunny for 3 hours to sing for someone who was sick, visiting sick kids, people who need someone to care about them, for them, all of the charities & he does it because he truely cares, not for publicity, not to enhance his image, its part of who he is. Could he be in a hurry & not give someone as much time as he would like, sure, could someone with him rush him along & he doesnt get to sign an autograph, sure, even once every 5 years be short with someone, sure, he’s human. Fame can be difficult, trying & frustrating.

  182. sarahhazel says:

    late correction: *got” the whole world….” LOL

  183. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ yeah true. well said.

  184. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl—u know I love the way your mind works, right?….you make me smile! :D
    (most of the time that is….haha)

  185. sarahhazel says:

    Eula Caballero ‏@oheulacaballero

    “@x10_catalon: @oheulacaballero namimiss mo ba si David Archuleta?”–Ou naman, the way every archie misses him. #DA2014

    Awww…..

  186. josie says:

    Shanny~”And they also will probably find their days working with him are numbered – but they probably won’t even see that coming.” Yeah. Just ask his ex-manager.

    Sorry, I had to. That was too easy. lol.

  187. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    JR – FEE doesn’t really have that much ‘expanded’ content. For me, its the vid and the remix. Will david even benefit much financially from the sales of FEE? Probably not. It may be more of an opportunity for Ivory to make a few quick dollars. But I will still support this album with my pennies because good sales make David a good client in their eyes. And when david is considered a good client, we the fans benefit from the collaboration. Not to mention, it helps keep davids career humming along. Ivory and TV5 etc have been wonderful to david and us fans, as I have seen it. They have made things possible that i’m sure others have put in the ‘too hard’ pile or the ‘not worth the effort’ pile, so I’m grateful and I really hope that all Archies will purchase and gift this FEE album. :-)

  188. sarahhazel says:

    #ManCrushMonday I still think David Archuleta is the cutest thing in the world… I just wanna meet him and http://instagr.am/p/Sg5T9MPpAx/

  191. glitter*girl says:

    thanks sarah!

  192. glitter*girl says:

    i think if david cared about record sales he would not have left. making money is obviously not his top priority and i respect him for that. josie~ yeah i bet she was shocked.

  193. Itsalright says:

    Well I think Kari or whatever team he has is also stuck on him selling music or she wouldnt beworried about peopl watching the video without purchasing. If they dont buy he will have nothing to come back to, outside the few fansites. Just hoping his other video’s and song are more what peeps want is all, so they buy and are here when he gets back.

  194. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Josie, ha, yes that situation did cross my mind. ;-)

  195. jackryan4DA says:

    SHANNY – You get it. Thanks!

  196. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I’m just so happy I got my CD and DDV of FEE today. I’m seizing the moment and love how David did all this for us to have while he’s away. There is no better than the Archuleta!! :smile:

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

    glitter girl, Thanks :grin: I think even if David cared, well, I think he cares, its his career, but, no matter how important sales & his career are, the mission is something he needed to do. Do I want him here with us right now, singing his heart out, of course, but, I am happy for him, he’s doing what he wants to do, what that little voice inside him told him he needed to do. I’m proud of him, he said it wasnt an easy decision, he’s human after all, lots to put on hold for 2 years, but I think he’s happy :grin: All I can say is, he better record a spanish cd the minute he gets back :lol:

  198. glitter*girl says:

    that’s the difficult part of all this. david wants to sing and have a career but i suspect he hates the business side of it since he is such a spiritual and enlightened person. he knows fame is not important but at the same time he knows he needs some level of financial success in order to do music for a career. that’s what makes me think he might come back and try to have a somewhat normal life and sing at church and tour some other locations that he might like to go to just to make his fans happy. i don’t think he will ever compromise his values which may mean limited success but in the end his diehard fans will not abandon him and will continue to support him in any way possible. for me, i would love for him to come back, tour, do DWTS, a major motion picture, TV shows, etc. lots of big exciting things. if he does these things i will be very happy but somewhat surprised.

  199. glitter*girl says:

    i also want to prepare myself for the possibility that he will come back, get married, have kids and not tour or ever make another album. that would be very sad.

  200. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    I think the selling albums thing is the same as the fame thing. He loves the fame and he hates the fame. He doesn’t care about selling albums and he does.

    He wants a music career so he’s got to be a ‘business man’ (and he’s talked a lot about having to learn to be a businessman) but on the other side, he just wants to sang! and live his life full of meaning and joy.

    It’s kinda a catch 22, which must lead to a certain amount of angst for him and cause him to always be vacillating between the two, trying to find the non-existent balance.

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

    glitter girl, David can have all of that. David said he had a blast filming NA & would love to do more acting & I think he is capable of many different types of roles. Music is in his blood, its part of him. When he returns, he will be able to dive into his career full force, the sky’s the limit. I’m telling ya, hang on tight, what a ride it will be :grin:

  202. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    glitter girl- I’d love to see him to be able to do all those things when he returns. The main thing is though that David is happy. There are a lot of things in his personal life that I’m sure will bring him happiness. His fame is icing on the cake. If anyone can do this, David will surely be able to balance things out. He has a knack for knowing what’s important in this life and I’m sure he will strive for that. I like your dream about dreaming you could meet and marry David. You are sweet.

  203. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ omg i hope so!

  204. Candy says:

    The FEE cd isnt going to be the end all of sales, David made sure he had money in his piggy bank before he left. He received a nice salary for NA, and while I would love to think that Bench and Forevermore were strictly for fans, I would be foolish to not think they also played a part in his financial security for two years.

  205. glitter*girl says:

    thanks sgj :)

  206. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Ok, others had already said what I basically just repeated…. :lol:

  207. kimk says:

    Itsalright agree on that.. first time I saw that. If selling cds are what they wish for then they know going more what folks are into these days is the key.
    Rainbow is as close to that as I have seen from David so far so kudos to him and his team for going for it.
    hoping for more of this going forward.

  208. SHANNY & GLITTERGIRL – That angst? That vacillation? He should write something about it. That’s fertile ground for an organic song, right there! :)

  209. kimk says:

    glittergirl he can do all that and still sing and tour.. The Traveling Archuletas!!
    ha sounds like a high wire act!!
    now wouldn’t that be cool.. like Pink!
    oh you see Dez!!? omg hottie alert!!

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

    glitter girl, David will come back to his music career, he said he was. Falling in love, having a family will only inspire him. David will marry someone that supports him & his music, just like I’m sure he will support her in achieving her dreams :grin:

  211. sarahhazel says:

    Ken Kessler ‏@SOCMusic

    Coming up – Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Judy Pancoast, Ray Charles, Colbie Caillat & Oral Fallon (with David Archuleta) – http://www.SoundsofChristmas.com

  212. glitter*girl says:

    jackryan~ so true! :) wonder if he has written any songs while he’s been in chile?

  213. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ that’s nice and all but i don’t even want to think about that :(

  214. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Ca.dy, oh Bench was definitely for the piggy bank (not that we’re complaining right!? lol) and NA and Forevermore were probably for both the fans and the piggy bank. (Again, not complaining here. lol) And the sales of this album aren’t going to be the end of everything…but every drop in the bucket does ultimately count….and since Ivory seems to be so good at bringing us David content, I’d like us to stay in their ‘good client’ books. :-)

  215. kimk says:

    jackryan hope FEE sells like you and they want it to. means he will have better traction come 2014 way I see it.
    from what I can tell just a vid folks are a little reluctant. got mine of course. as for waiting.. lol been waiting for the most part now four + years.
    no choice really. also
    there are folks who cannot afford to buy the whole cd.
    and just so many able to gift.

  216. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Here goes. I’m confused Do sales count if we buy in the U.S. from The Philippine albums. Just like do buying albums made in the US count if they are bought by people overseas. Hope you get what I mean. Sales always confuse me.

  217. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Oops, sorry for messing your name up Candy.

    JR – haha, that it is! :-)
    Was just thinking….if he did ever make it big enough – maybe like John Mayer or Jason Mraz or something – he could find that balance where he can just enjoy doing what he wants in his career and the albums would just sell themselves, based upon the fact that he had enough popularity. That would be the ultimate because I think it would be his sweet spot where it all had come together as he would like it. I hope he gets his dream one day.

  218. I hear ya KIMK. Same here wrt David’s concert. The front row prices w/o VIP is 2x as much as your VIP… Thank goodness he had an extended stay last time he visisted cos that meant more peeps saw him and interacted with him.. not just glimpse from afar

    The things we do… the things we do…

  219. glitter-girl, I agree with Beth, Music is a big part of David, and he will not give it up. I hope to be here to support him in what he wants to do. He will not stop singing. I hope that he does more acting, he really enjoyed actin in NA.

  220. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ yes definitely or like someone asked him once he could be a character’s voice on a disney animated movie!!!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    glitter girl :grin:

  222. Candy says:

    SGJ- good question…I think before they didnt even if from Wow or Astro, must be bought in phillippines. JR will have to verify.

  223. josie says:

    Shanny~9:29- I think you might be right on that. Now I want to give him a hug. lol….Off-topic, but where does that “If only David would change himself, then he’d do better” mentality come from? That has bugged me for years…It’s like, if you don’t like who he is, then don’t be a fan. And if you’re not a fan, then leave him alone. lol.

    No one should ever feel like they have to change their traits or personality just to make money, “humor society”, or fit in with the crowd. It’s sad that peer pressure extends beyond the junior high phase. And when peeps point fingers, there are 10 pointing right back at them.

    ‘K. Off my little soapbox now.

  224. Candy says:

    agree Shanny-that sweet spot is what seems to elude him…by choice. Im not sure you can have both and live in Utah.

  225. Candy says:

    josie-I dont want to change him when I say he would need to change, what I mean is “IF” he wants a sustainable career he will have to make a move of some kind, the good ship lollipop sailed long ago. A label of some kind, manager, if he wants to sing in his room, thats fine with me…as long as his sisters video and post it on YT :)

  226. Itsalright says:

    Josie-David has been doing what he has been doing for 4 yrs now and ya we all stuck by him cause we love him for no matter what, but he has not gain any newcomers, infact he has lost a lot and I believe it is because of his lack of confidence. Also with him going on a mission when he doesnt have a hugh following is scary but he had to do what was right withhim. No one is asking him to change to humor society or sacrifice his values, we’ve been through this. If he does want a career when he gets back then he will have to start acting like guy who wants to have a career, (David style) but without calling himself a dork or saying he ugly owning what he is mad of.
    Alright im done…..guess we will see in 2014.

  227. glitter*girl says:

    the only person david could marry and i would not be upset would be mietra :)

  228. kimk says:

    ha well his sisters are pretty cheeky.. they just might oblige us!!

  229. kimk says:

    glitter girl well she does seem to talk about him a lot.. at least on twitter. wasn’t that the girl who got all the hate mail during idol?

  230. josie says:

    Wait a sec, lol. Candy~I wasn’t referring to anything you said at all. Sorry if you thought that. Itsalright~ I was just referring to your 8:06 post, actually…I agree that if he wants a career, he’ll need to act like he wants one.

  231. josie says:

    ‘K, good night, everyone. :)

  232. Ali says:

    Meh, I personally don’t think its a matter of “if David acts this way when he comes back, he’ll be huge” or even “if he had changed this, he would have been bigger than JB or 1D”. If that were true, every really hot guy who could move well and sing decent would be a superstar. They’re not. Its a whole combination of things, most of which are out of the control of the artist. Some things just HAPPEN. I think in the long run the biggest deal is being yourself. People know if you’re genuine. I think that’s the best we can aim for and then the rest either does or doesn’t come. I don’t know what will happen for sure in 2014. But I’m optimistic. :)

  233. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy- I get befuddled and mixed up as to if were are talking about sales for numbers or sales for amount of money made between the U.S. and Foreign countries. I’ll never get that straight.
    Goodnight Beth. Time for me to say Goodnight too. See you tomorrow everyone.

  234. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Josie. Sweet dreams. It’s 12:42 p.m. in Chile now. David is probably singing in his sleep right now.

  235. Itsalright says:

    ya the 8:06 comment, well i men’t if he made the diva hand motions a little more masculine, or a little less chessy, it would get more views and more peeps buying. Those are the things I meant when I say wanting and acting like he wanst a career Im certainly not a hater, I guess I just can’t settle for just us liking David or buying his music, I want him known all over like I know he was born to do. Not everyone is look at that video and see what we see….that is what hurts. ok I guess I am not great with words. I”ll leave now.

  236. SGJ, i would give anything to hear David sing in his sleep.

  237. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just want to add Ali, I love your optimism. :grin: Okay Goodnight again, really.

  238. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- (((hugs))) to you too. Hope you get your Rainbow tomorrow.Nite

  239. kimk says:

    Itsalright ha more manly hand movements.. ok will take that.

    Ali agree in a way.. his time shooting NA was pretty good. fit him and us. only problem not that way here in the states. if the election was any indication folks here not into conservativeness right now. doesn’t really bother me anyway it works out just whether we all get to see him sing in one way or the other.

  240. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey all…been lurking tonight…. Hey LindafromCali….I think David said in an interview that he does sleep sing……..Would love to be a fly on the wall in his bedroom to hear that beautiful voice …..Miss Vicki

  241. kimk says:

    if anything just being seen and heard mainstream will help when he gets back.
    even before he left on his mission folks were wondering where he went to.
    anyway.. hoping that is the case.
    hope we get to see him a lot come 2014.. make up for this drought we are in!

  242. Ali says:

    kimk – yup but I kind of think NA had to happen when it did, where it did. David is growing still just like we are. It was kind of a perfect storm happening there in Manila for a month or so. I think that will continue to grow with David. And maybe this time away will be good in more than one way — for people who are preconceived to think of him only like he was on AI to allow that time to change into what he will be? idk. lol now i’m getting all philosophical.

  243. josie says:

    Itsalright~ You don’t have to leave, lol. I’m not great with words, either, as you can tell. I think I get what you’re trying to say. Yes, it would be awesome if a lot more people could know about him, & see what we see. Pretty sure he’s not gonna change the way he moves his hands, though. :) ‘K. ‘Night again.

  244. Miss Vicki, you know that if David sings in his sleep, it has to be a big part of him.
    He;s not stopping anytime soon.

  245. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Candy – haha, maybe thats why he lives in ‘kind of Utah’. lolol
    Just jokes, just jokes.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he moved to Nashville once he gets back and starts the gears turning again.

    Ali – I agree. If there was some magic formula for fame, there would be a lot more famous people. Thats reminding me of some of his lyrics…but it’s alluding me right now….

  246. Candy says:

    Itsalright-I happen to agree with you…love the RMV but know what you are trying to say. Can be cause for comments…not from us…

  247. Candy says:

    ROTF Shanny- good one…Kinda Utah!!

  248. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Linda, I would think he’s probably dreaming of performing when he sleepsings.

  249. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Josie….I agree….David doesn’t need to change himself….He will do well just being true to himself…BTW….I just love, love , love Pat a Pan….Just coming back from Paris a month ago…..I can just envison David singing Pat a Pan on a romantic cobblestone street in the Latin Quarter……the French Pied Piper of Christmas Pop….LOL…..Miss Vicki

  250. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Candy, lol I thought it was a pretty lame joke but thanks for laughing. :-) :lol:

  251. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Also BTW……Where did I see someone post that Mietra was recently tweeting about David????? Are they still close friends???? I thought Ashley trumpted Mietra….He asked Ashley to go on tour with him…..Maybe there is a love (friendship) triangle going on here……Miss Vicki

  252. jhen says:

    Just drop by for few minutes while I’m incthe lunch break. Yes, I think he should have more manly handmovement. But his mannerism is a bit childlike. Maybe he need some choreographer to help him. Because when he dance doggie. he was manly. Because the dance choreo teach him.

  253. Lucy says:

    You guys are making me jealous! I can’t get my FEE until the 19th of Dec, sure wish I could have ordered from CDWOW…. Anyway I hope they still will release the Rainbow music video. Good nite all.

  254. LaLiliana says:

    Seems like David doesn’t lick his lips so much now. So he either made a decision to stop or he just naturally moved away from doing it. Either way it shows that nothing is in stone. Just my take on all things Archuleta.

  255. applegreen says:

    Let him be himself..his true self..his true colors..that’s why we love him..

  256. Jhen says:

    I had the same opinion of Kari, not to upload the Rainbow mv in YT. That was also I mentioned before here at FOD, because to be honest I know some Philippines archies didn’t buy FEE, they are just waiting someone to upload, I couldn’t blame them too because their financial is limited, mostly they are students, they felt FEE is almost the same as Forevermore, only addition of MV, which they could see in YT. The excitement will lost once they already saw Rainbow in YT. They will totally not buy FEE anymore, so it doesn’t help to grow the sale. The manager of music store told me FEE not even reach 1/4 of the sale of Forevemore

  257. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi Jhen and Night All…Happy David Dreams…..Miss Vicki

  258. Jhen says:

    I don’t want David to change his personalities, because that is who he really is, if we force him to change just to be popular, I don’t think he will be happy, because that is not him. I can only be grateful he is humble, sweet, easy to reach. Like Applegreen said Let Him be Himself.
    Time to go back to work.

  259. Jhen says:

    Hi Miss Vicki- good night to you and all. Have to go back to my work.

  260. Applegreen, Jhen, i also agree, let David be David.
    Goodnight everyone.sweet David dreams.

  261. hunnzy says:

    THANK YOU MAILMAN!!! Got my FEE earlier today! Love it and love having I’ll Never go and Forevermore on my Ipod!!!! I live in southern California and bought from CD WOW, David has got the moves….that boy can move! I ordered 2 but just got one!!! Thank you Jesus!!! haha

  269. Anita says:

    Good Morning everyone! I happen to love David’s hand movements. They really don’t look gay to me. David just has an innocence about him that I think is wonderful. He can take his time making his videos more manly and sexy. That’s fine with me!!

  270. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hmmm…will we get more dancing david when his hand movements get so much negative attention the first time he dances in a vid?
    …maybe not.
    Please let him never know of this discussion.

  271. kimk says:

    Shanny agree.. we all are missing him terribly so folks are loopy is all I got?!
    funny but I think it is great!
