Thanksgiving Message from Richard

In case you were busy traveling over the river and through the woods yesterday, I’m re-posting this wonderful Thanksgiving message from our own Papa FOD (aka @onerichsong)!  I still remember the very first day FOD became active online – we’ve grown and changed over the years, but the heart of this site still beats strong – thanks Richard for creating this home away from home for us – the place where we all park!

Gratitude. I’m so full of gratitude. There are mornings I wake up and can’t believe I get to live the life I do. It truly is a blessing. I think anyone that can truly say that they completely love what they do for a living is extremely fortunate, especially in these economic times.

 It hasn’t been easy for us. We have had to create our own way. I teach songwriting classes every week and coach a lot of songwriters and artists privately. I’m also in the studio a ton… sometimes for a ridiculous number of hours at completely ridiculous hours. It’s not glamorous, it’s a lot of work, but we love it! And there is turkey on the table this weekend, so all is well.

 It has been an interesting experience for me over the last several years since I started working with David. The music business has changed an insane amount over that time. Budgets aren’t what they used to be, both at the independent and label levels. People used to buy whole albums. That doesn’t happen anymore. People now buy singles and that has cut into the overall profits of the industry (not to mention illegal downloads). There’s nothing wrong with this and there’s nothing to be upset about it, but we’ve had to adjust. Decisions have to be made differently. Where and how we are using resources is different than even two years ago. Those who understood the business 5 years ago seem lost in the fog.

 (Now, I’m not talking about the die hard loyal fans like you. I know you all buy albums and for this I say “Thank you!” Your support has been nothing short of impressive. To think that I’m sharing this message today on a website we started over four years ago just blows my mind. We have so many folks visit this site every day. Really, it’s amazing.)

 I remember when we started this site. Our hope was to provide an incredibly positive and safe environment for anyone who wanted to share in the joy that David brought them. I think, for the most part, we have provided that. We have never made money from our site. All of those who write, moderate, contribute in any way… well, they do it because they love it and do so completely on a volunteer basis. The hours, and days, and even years that so many have put in to making this site incredible deserve a standing ovation!

 I recognized years ago that David is unique. Most of his uniqueness, in my opinion, comes from his absolute humility. I have always appreciated that from him. I have learned an awful lot from him with his loving approach to those around him.

 I can’t imagine how difficult a decision it was for him to serve a 2 year mission. To leave everything behind had to be difficult. But he made that decision and I’m so glad he did. I know he’ll come back an even better person than he was before. Mind blowing, isn’t it? But, that’s what a mission does. When you get completely outside of yourself and immerse 100% of your time, talent, and energy into the lives of those you are serving, how could you not become a better person? It’s exciting to think of how he’ll be able to share with all of us once he gets back!

 We had a close friend of ours share pictures just yesterday at the airport with her son coming home from his two year mission. It honestly felt like he just left. Two years goes by so quickly. I sit and shake my head every time I think that it’s been almost five years since David was on Idol, nearly eight years since I met him, and over three years since we were in Prague recording the orchestra for “Christmas From The Heart”. Please, give me a minute while I take that all in…

I want to share a sincere thank you to all of you for supporting David, and this site, and especially his decision to serve for two years. There is nothing secret about what he’s doing on his mission. But it is sacred. There’s a big difference. Allowing him to focus on the task at hand is very generous of all of you. So, thank you!

I have been so impressed with the efforts of Kari in keeping everyone in the loop of what David is up to. I think it’s so cool that they are doing what they are for everyone. It’s actually unique that they are allowing the small glimpses into his mission that they are. But, he’s unique, so it fits. :)

Thank you all for being so wonderful! I look forward to the opportunities of seeing you at future concerts!

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving Day! Don’t forget to pull out the “really good” Christmas music soon ;)

Hugs!

Thanksgiving Blog 2008

– Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Discovery Float

I stumbled across this blog last week while surfing the web for all things David – I wasn’t actually on MySpace because I haven’t been there since, well probably 2008!  I never really got the hang of it and had only made an account to follow David’s MySpace.  I do remember leaving comments on his MySpace back in the day, never knowing if David ever read the comments – but it was a fun time reading other fan comments and keeping up with the heartbeat of the fan base.

While I LOVE his vlogs, there is something very sweet about reading a blog that David wrote himself – rather like a peek into his journal – and he’s relaxed and includes fun, random details (there’s a mouse in here).  I also love his “Songs for the Day” where he shared music from other artists he was listening to.  Even in a written blog he worries that it’s “insanely longer than I intended” – to this day I don’t think he gets that we can listen to/read anything he wants to say as often and as long as he wants to say it!

p.s. Pabuckie – this is the blog I was talking about – finally found it again!

Happy Thanksgiving

~ Originally posted on David’s MySpace

Hey Guys! Just wanted to say that I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!! We were in New York this week, and I had a blast! Yesterday was the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and that was really exciting. I was on the Green Dog float, and there were tons and tons and tons of people on the sides. It was pretty chilly too, but I heard that it was a really nice day compared to previous years haha. I bundled and layered up as much as I could though. I sang Crush near the end, and a couple of songs played during our time going down the streets. And there’s a mouse in here. Sorry I know that was random, but I can hear it wandering around and it keeps squeaking. I didn’t think there would be mice here but I guess there are… But anyway. Some kids from the PBS show Fetch were on my float too, and they were really nice kids. I also got to meet a bunch of other people who were in the parade, and it was really great getting to meet and talk with them. Miranda Cosgrove from iCarly was there too, and it was really cool to see and talk to her again. The sad thing is that I didn’t have my camera or phone with me, so I didn’t get to take my own pictures. Someone that worked there was nice enough to let me borrow their camera though before the parade started and I took pictures on my float, and on the Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends float! I know I’m such a dork but that’s my favorite cartoon lol. I was so excited to see it because it wasn’t too far behind me. But they were going to send me the pictures sometime soon.
The night before Thanksgiving, my mom and I went to see the musical In The Heights, and it was pretty much PHENOMENAL. It is seriously like one of my favorite musicals now. It was great that my mom was able to come to this particular musical too because it’s full of Latin music. So we had a great time with that, and also got to meet some of the cast members from it. I definitely recommend it if you ever get the chance to see it! The cast from the musical was also in the parade and did a number. Oh, the night before we saw the musical, my mom and I watched Twilight. I never read the books but a bunch of my friends are really into it, and the movie’s been getting a bunch of hype so we decided to go see it. I actually really liked it. The weird thing is when we walked into the theater Crush was playing so we walked back out because it was so weird haha. But anyway my blogs always get insanely longer than I intend for them to be, so I’ll end for today. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

P.S. It was really fun to see all the signs you guys made during the parade! haha

Songs for the day: Decode – Paramore (From the Twilight Soundtrack) It shows just how great of a singer Hayley is.

Singing the Praises of Sound Checks

– source: pynkcelebrity.com

As I sprawled out on the couch in a tryptophan induced food coma, I scrolled through twitter to see what was shaking in the ArchuWorld.  I came across a series of tweets posting links from various David sound checks and had the pleasure of watching vids that I hadn’t seen before (I was certain that I had seen every David vid ever posted lol).

Sound check vids have a special “raw” quality to them as David isn’t focused on “performing” so much as playing around with the melodies and tempo of a song.  He tries different things out and you can see his creative process bubbling as he changes up a song to suit his whim at the moment.  You’ll hear different versions of your fave songs and gain a real appreciation for David’s innate sense of timing and manipulating a melody to get maximum emotion out of every word.

    Morning all, when the heck are we getting the Rainbow video? Have they decided not to release it and for us to see it when we get our CDs? If that’s the case then I won’t get to see it until Dec. 19th! I don’t want to wait that long! Sorry guys, just frustrated because I just keep getting the run around from CDWOW about why my card won’t work there, I swear they have robots answer emails and not real people! I think I could order it from Multiply but it is $36 there so I’m not sure. Oh we’ll guess I’ll have to just be satisfied reading your comments when you guys get your CDs, which for you lucky ducks will be any day now. Who knows maybe by some miracle Amazon will get to ship soon. Have a good all!

    Sarahhazel, I got that fortune to hear him twice when volunteering at Mentor’s International. Some of the other fans got to come in, like Jerry, Janet and a few others to help us set up tables and he sang Dream Sky High during his warm up, then again for everyone during the dinner. I think they were both wonderful but I liked the warm up even better than the performance. Chills up the spine! It was a blessed experience!

  13. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello cq, Linda, Janel. Lucy and sarahhazel! Hope you all ENJOYED your Thanksgiving! LOVE all those FAVORITE foods….YUM!

  16. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hi all. :-)
    Love todays post today Kalei. Reading david’s vlog and Rich’s comments. So interesting what Rich had to say about how the music industry is completely different from how it was 2 years ago. Wonder how much more changed david will find it after his 2 year break. Also what Rich said about how we’ve been allowed glimpses into his mission….have we? :lol: I thought everything we knew was due to the Archuninjas…unless we’ve really been ‘leaked’ info and just thought we were Archuninjas…? And here we’ve been thinking how clever we are for the last five years…maybe the joke is quietly on us? :lol: ;-)

  17. kimk says:

    Shanny would imagine he will find it even harder than it is now. especially being gone for so long.. almost like starting over.

  18. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–lucky you!!!

    Hi, Lucy, VaBch, Shanny & kimk! :)

    Did some Black Friday shopping with hubby and it wasn’t stressful at all….to my surprise. Just had lunch…LOL & going to another store to get 3 more items a little later & the rest I’ll do online!

  19. sarahhazel says:

    Regina ‏@mmmpeaches

    ok here you go @DavidArchie fans some funfanfiction for you all http://fictionfollies.wordpress.com/david-archuleta-fan-fiction/everything/

  20. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel – if his fanbase has atrophied a lot – and i’m not sure that it has? People just keeping busy and entertained elsewhere while they wait maybe? – then I’m sure he can expect fewer sales – which ultimately is to be expected really – but I think name recognition is one of the most important things because it gets feet in doors type of things – and if things are changing in the music scene as rapidly as Rich is suggesting then as long as you’ve got the name recognition, it seems to me that it’s anybody’s game. Kind of like…the first person to crack the code is going to win all. A microsoft or facebook waiting to be discovered and the first ones to recognise who has the winning formula and follow suit could probably hang on to the coat tails of the big winner and go for a pretty little ride too. So I hope david gets to benefit from that when the time comes and people figure out how to make the industry work in this new age of technology and social media.

    Shanny–maybe atrophied a little…..and guessing some “hibernating” also & just waiting for him to get back….he’s got what it takes…..it’s all up to him.

  23. Kathy says:

    I got Glad Tidings at Target today for $5. I want to go back and see if they have the DVD. I am in Illinois so maybe all targets have them.

  24. meganloves2lol says:

    ahh grand rapids!! i can see my head haha. right now i am missing him soo much. i guess ’cause last year at this time i was getting all set to see him in verona! :(

  25. glitter*girl says:

    hope everyone had a good holiday. been reflecting today and having some new kinda weird thoughts but my latest one is~ i think if david could get past his religious restrictions and personal issues and really let himself be totally immersed in the music he could be the next michael jackson.

  26. Ali says:

    Shanny – I was really interested to read your thoughts on name recognition. I completely agree on that and this may sound weird and maybe no one else agrees with me (lol that has happened before) but I think one of the things working for David is his name itself. Its pretty memorable and fairly unique.

    Sure, it’s spelled wrong alot but that’s because people hear it and remember it even if they’re not big fans. So that means those are people who are not completely familiar with David — in that they don’t follow him closely — but they still remember his name. They can’t spell it but whatever. I think that means something. I realize an entire career can’t be based on that but that foot in the door, that few seconds of “oh hey I remember who you’re talking about! Archuletta!! Archie!” that can make a difference.

    These are the kind of random thoughts that roll through my head… ;)

  34. Ali says:

    Hello ladies! LOL David is sure getting quite a bit of play in stores lately. A friend of mine heard Crush at a store in the mall the other day too.

  35. tami lyn says:

    kim~ thanks for that supercute video :)

  36. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–it’s great, isn’t it?!!! :)

  37. kimk says:

    Ali didn’t hear David in the stores today (did hear This Christmas a few times even Xtina but not D) but have a few times lately more than I have before and I read a lot of those accounts on twitter too. think that is good!

  38. kimk says:

    tamilyn he had it going on that day.. lol even Gretchen was digging him and his eyes that day. folks were all jealous about it too.
    funny stuff.

  39. Hi everyone.

    Ali, i also think that keeping his name out there is important right now while he’s gone.
    I know that it’s not easy but David has the best team and fans to keep promoting his name. He’s been gone 8 mos already and i would say that his team and fans have been working hard to see that the Archuleta is not forgotten.

    There’s only so much we can do, but like Ali said they still remember his name.
    How many tweets do we get asking for the Archuleta, Where he is and What is he doing. To me that means that he is still remembered,

  40. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hmmm…interesting how he seems to be played more in stores these days. Wonder why?
    Ali – I think name recognition means a lot – thats why artists can have.hits years after their star has faded. People know their name and so are willing to give them a moment and listen – and if they have the right sound in that moment – games on again. And I agree about his name – have thought that myself before – Archuleta is not a run of the mill name.
    Glittergirl, you always bring a smile to my face. He could definitely be.the next King Of Pop, just maybe more a’la David, rather than Michael. But if he decided to dress in black leather and sunnies and bust a few moves, I’d still be laughing, clapping and singing along. :-)
    I’m missing him badly the last few days too – think I get more like, it when % haven’t had a good FOD dose for a while.

  41. glitter*girl says:

    thanks shanny! what a sweet thing for u to say :)

    Hey Ray! Hmmmm, wonder why :lol:

    Hey sarahhazel! Did a little shopping today too. Went to JC Penny, Target, not a problem. Went to Herbergers, good grief, couldnt find a place to park. Its part of an L shaped mall, along with Kohls, Famous Footwear, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc….The whole parking lot was a zoo, no where to park, BIG parking lot too. Good to see for the economy :grin:

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

    Thanks for the links Linda, cant wait to see the Rainbow Video. Hoping its in my mail tomorrow, but it will probably be more like next week :roll: :grin:

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

    sarahhazel, Yup, burrrrr about sums it up :grin:

    Hey, just in case some of you or someone you know takes generic form of Lipitor, check with your pharmacy, theres a recall, Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals, your pharmacy can tell you if your meds are included, hopefully.

  64. Beth me too, But like you said probably won’t be until next week.
    I really thought they were going to release the Video. I wonder why they didn’t, They kept telling us soon. I’m still standing by with my PEPPER BELLIES.

  65. kimk says:

    nope.. huge hole since he left.
    don’t get me wrong a ton of great artists out there today but none good enough to fill the void.
    only one Archuleta.

  66. tami lyn says:

    kim ~ well said! so true!

  67. Kimk, I second that. Theres only one Archuleta.

    Linda, Yeah, I thought it would be you tube already, but, in a way, I’m glad its not, hopefully it will sell more. I just think they should’ve made it a video EP, with the 3 vids on HD including Rainbow, along with a new song, it would’ve sold like hotcakes, but hard for people to purchase, basically the same album, but with a few vids & kareoke songs. I am thrilled to purchase it, but its hard for alot of people to do it.

    kimk, Thats for sure, only one David Archuleta :grin:

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  71. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I third that!

    Gdnite, Beth!!!

  72. sarahhazel says:

    LOL…guess there’s a WWTT for #icarlymemories……

  73. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth, you are so right an EP with the three videos on HD with a new song would of sold like hotcakes. IMO, the FEE is really a repeat of the Forevermore album, the Rainbow remix is the only thing that I really want to hear and see. All the other songs I love and play them regularly and I bought several copies of Forevermore album already.

  74. nora says:

    hi everybody, just finished voting and turned on TV to music channel, and who do you think was singing? I was shocked it was David signing Joy To The World, I would recognize his voice any where. It was so good to hear him on my tv. They are playing Christmas music already. Maybe they will have more of his songs from CFTH. That just made my night, and couldn’t think of anybody else but Fans here to share it with. No cd today for RMV maybe tomorrow, if not Monday.
    Good night Beth.

  75. Goodnight Beth, sweet Dreams

  76. Nora, what music channel are they playing Xmas songs. I have dish>

  77. kimk says:

    only can put a new song on a cd if one was recorded.

  78. nora says:

    linda-I have Comcast I live in MA. they are playing it seems newer Christmas music, the channel is called Music Choice, there is another channel it is called songs of the season, they seem to play a lot of old Christmas songs, by older artists, it was really strange, just like someone said David is singing turn the station.

    Just dropping in to say Hi to everybody. I made dinner today and now I’m stuffed again. I didn’t get my CD’s from WOW yet either. Maybe tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I didn’t shop today. I went online for toys for 2 little grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and didn’t get anything. Seems things are 50-150 dollars and up. I wish I knew what to get them. I dread standing in the stores trying to figure out what to get.Always a dilemma. Clothes are boring and money is not a present to me. I love Christmas but really don’t care for all the hoopla that goes with it. Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. Goodnight , I don’t have to eat till Monday!!

  80. nora says:

    goodnight sgj-I guess i’ll be heading off to bed, it seems so quiet around here lately, everybody probably busy with the holidays , I guess. It is really difficult to know what to get for kids today, so many different electronics, my 2 daughters help with what to get for my grand kids, without them I would be lost.

  81. Goodnight nora,It is a little slow but everyone is busy and will get busier with the Holidays, But things will get back to normal at times.
    Hi Sgj,
    I have my grandsons give me a list, then i go by that. It helps give me an idea on what to get them.

    Rainbow is on youtube!!!!!!

  83. vickye says:

    sorry I don’t know how to add the link

  84. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys….That video of David sitting at the long tables with white tableloths…….entitled “Another Video I Haven’t Seen Before”……That was taken at the David and Demi Lavato concert in Fairfax, VA in August of 2009…..He had just taken Ashley to the airport to go back to Utah…..I remember cause I was there…..That was the concert that I gave David the black and purple plaid tie he wore on the Larry King Live Show when he sang Pat a Pan……Oh the memories!!!!!……Miss Vicki

  85. I have to hand it to Ivory, They made sure it won’t be easy to rip the Rainbow video. Not that it is impossible. The one who posted the whole thing – the vid is garbled.

    Interesting…

    Sorry am a bit of a techie so such things catch my fancy hehe

  86. Miss Vicki, you are so right.

    I ache for David in that video, why he had to sit on his hands. Poor guy… but still adorable hehe

  87. jeani/ut says:

    Love David with his latest band.

  88. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I Miss David BIG TIME…..Missing his Christmas Concerts here in the States…Gotta go to bed now….Gotta START my Christmas Shopping in the morning….Miss Vicki

  89. Martha – that’s a good copy. Happy u guys can now see it but sad.. goodbye potential FEE sales here. Not sure how that will impact the MYX premiere…

  90. OK, I think the fanbase just went daid, LOL

    Defib stat!

  91. vickye says:

    They are all asleep. Well they will be happy to see the surprise when they wake up.

  92. Jackryan, why did ivory wait so long to premier RMV after it went on sale. Didn’t they know that someone would probably post it.

  93. I’ve been asking them – no reply

  94. I was hoping that int’l fans will get to see it via myx. But we all know it was just a matter of time

  95. Thanks JackRyan, lets hope for the best, David deserves it.

  96. jhen says:

    Rainbow remix has been removed in you tube. I hope the fans don’t download prior to launch in myx to avoid less sale of Forermore expanded edition especially in the Philippines. International sale I don’t think affect much.

  97. JHEN – it was up for about 4 hours I think. That’s a lot of window of opp to download & share across the internet. Well now some have seen what’s in store for them.

    I hope it gets premiered soon.

  98. And am not worried about us Archies. We will buy anythingDavid.

  99. jhen says:

    Jackryan- hopefully the glympse of rainbow remix mv at you tube gave fans excitement to buy the forevermore expanded edition .I hope the sale pick up

  100. VaBeachArchie says:
