Wishful Wednesday Wonderings

Today as we patiently wait for news to come our way from Team Archuleta, it’s fun and very fan-like for us to wonder what surprises may be on the horizon. Being the creative minds that David Archuleta fans are, the ideas are enticing and exciting to consider!

Reading through comments, I found many fans musing about the possibilities and thought it would be fun to post some here as we continue to ponder.

ATX #DA2014 says:

I bet Team Archuleta is enjoying every minute of this! Lol ;)

Ok let’s vote: <—hmmm good suggestion!
(1) live DVD
(2) CD of unreleased songs
(3) EP of old/ new songs
(4) David’s signed to NA part 2
(5) David and Lady V’s song for TV or Movie <—Wow! Interesting!
(6) NA DVD
(7) David’s coming home early to ______    ;)
(8) ALL THE ABOVE!!!!!

sarahhazel says: ATX–I want it to be #7 but it’s a long shot….so I’d go with #5….(without the TV or movie part…haha…)

Grammyj says:  My guess is 2 or 3. I believe it will be music either EP, CD or single.

lessha says: So excited about this news. My vote is for #5. Wouldn‘t it be great if it was a song for The movie Catching Fire, I think it comes out in March.

Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says: Sounds bigger than just one song, not that I would mind that lol, anything is wonderful. <—AGREE! :D

FAN says:  My guess it is a song for a TV show. The show being American Idol, and it’s for the goodbye song. That is my guess. :)

Ali says:  Hmmmm. What could it be??

I say they’re starting pre-production on David’s new Food Network show, Eat Around The World With David. First episode set to be filmed in April 2014. heh.

Oh! And there’s a Lady V & David song being used as the theme music for the show. There. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Anyway, fun ponderings, don’t you think? And as Beth said, “I wouldn’t mind anything cause anything is wonderful!!

* * * * * *

Kari’s Tweet leads to a Creative Thought!

Recently Kari posted a fun tweet which also lead to some creative pondering.

Hmmm wedding related? She clarified for us:

Early this am, also in our comments section, Davidfan got “creative” in her thinking about Kari’s tweet. She posed the possibility it was DA related. :)

davidfan says: January 30, 2013 at 1:27 am

just guessing here …….. something old =old unreleased song…… something new=new song from victoria horn and david…….. something borrowed=a cover song…….. something blue=David in blue for the EP cover <—(Like maybe the 2nd lead photo above?)

 Love your creative minds, peeps! It will be so much fun to see what comes our way in the near future!! What’s the lyric? oh yeah—- “Hang on hang in for the ride of your lifeeeee!”

* * * * *

  New TV Guide Poll!

Hopefully we’ll rally the troops to vote and others will also put David on their list which will raise his totals!! Click David’s pic above to head over and vote. Let’s raise him to the top!

The David Chronicles: Desperately Seeking David (Part 2)

Part two of the exciting fan adventures during the filming of Nandito Ako continues today over at The David Chronicles! Written with great detail and humor, you won’t want to miss it!! Click the pic above to head over! :)

A very Special “David” Vlog ~1 Year Ago Today!!

One year ago today, on January 30, 2012, David posted a very special vlog from the set of Nandito Ako. It was his last week of filming, and he took time to share, how filming had been progressing, and to invite fans there to the filming of the upcoming concert scene! He talked about his growth as an actor, and how it felt to act out deep emotions…a new experience for him.  He looked so happy, didn’t he? It’s easy to see that he loved the people he was working with (cast & crew) and he was grateful for this opportunity. :)


* * * * * *

Memories~ The Southmall M&G 1/28/2012

Just a couple days before David uploaded the (above) vlog last year, he performed and participated in a Meet and Greet at Southmall in Manila. Jack Ryan (and Lorms) shared the “day” with us; you can find it on her You Tube Channel. The videos posted here today are part one and two of the M&G Question and Answer session. Remember David reciting the body parts in Tagalog??? Thanks JR for your fun and upclose vids!!!


And Part 2

From Later that same day, at the SM MOA Mall, (David’s 2nd mall appearance that day) came this stunning Angels and his parting message! Thx JR for your uber awesome video skills!! * * * * *

Gwen Patiently Waits

@GwenPo sent us an email to let us know how she’s passing some (fun) time while waiting for David!! I LOVE these cards; best deck ever!!!

Gwen’s “perfect” deck **click to bigger**

Hello,

Just wanted to share how I am spending my time while I WAIT. It makes it  little
easier looking at all of that gorgeousness to pass the time. Haha. So excited
about what is to come. We all need to remember how very patient David was during
the time he had to wait before he could go on his Mission. That was a long wait
for him. We can do it, as David says “HANG ON”.

* * * * * *

Have a wonderful “wishful” Wednesday everyone! If any news pops up, we’ll post it pronto! :)

  4. Good Morning Everyone! Thank you Joanie for all the “wonderfulness”! I would love to have a set of Gwen Po’s deck of cards!! Where did you get them Gwen? Are they available to purchase anywhere? They have so many current pictures! :)

  5. Ali says:

    Forbes is out with their 10 Top-Earning American Idols of 2012 list.
    http://www.forbes.com/pictures/eeel45lkij/10-david-archuleta-1-million-tie-2/

    I linked directly to David’s entry — he’s tied for #10. Actually I’m surprised he was on the list this year. Forbes is notoriously off on their numbers and many times do not take into account international earnings of Idols. It was nice to see him still there!

    Good morning to all!!

  6. kimk says:

    Ali wow even if off love seeing him there.. buzz in a good way! love they mentioned his mission too!! thanks!!!

  7. Good morning Archiekins…..Joanie,great job on the front post.

  14. nora says:

    sarahhazel-I hope that you are not commenting yesterday and today is because of the comment made about too much voting talked about on this site. If it is don’t let it bother you we need your posts and reminders. It sure didn’t bother me.

  15. Lucy says:

    Morning guys, kinda random here but since no one answered before, is Davids sister married now? I never heard anything about it. Just curious, thanks guys.

  16. Ali says:

    kimk – yup, very cool to see him there! and the numbers are not just off for him, it’s as a whole for everyone because all Forbes is doing is guessing how much each person is making. Educated guesses but still guesses lol.

    Lucy – yes, his older sister got married last year.

  17. Ali says:

    palmtreephan — sorry just saw your vid link from the first comment on this thread. love love love that song!! it was meaningful when the album came out and even more so later on.

  18. breanne says:

    Joanie, LOVE your post today!! Those top 2 pictures of David by Matt Clayton are sooo AMAZING!!!

  22. Ali says:

    breanne – the dates for inclusion were may 2011 – may 2012 so it wasn’t long after he left. they just wait until the new season of Idol starts to post the list. he for sure won’t be on for the next two years. after that, (if they show is even still around lol) who knows.

  23. VaBeachArchie says:

    nora….Keeping David’s name in the polls with the big boys and even better winning can’t be bad! Sarahhazel has ALWAYS posted links to all kinds of GREAT finds (vids, pics, gifs, etc ) as well as voting reminders and links. So sarahhazel…WE NEED YOU BACK! :) )

    Nana patrol calls….well our “new” (8 mos from the SPCA ) puppy walking time! :)

  24. breanne says:

    Ali, thanks for the info about the Forbes list!!! David has been on the list since his AI days & because he is so conservative with money, I’m sure he has saved a lot of it. After seeing that pic of A.Lambert & his crew, I’m very glad I’m a fan of our sweet & wonderful David!!!!! ♥♥♥

  25. sydnie says:

    Hello FOD! Thank you Joanie for fab post, love the top pic! Eeekkk can’t wait to hear new music! :D
    Ali, been wondering about the Forbes list thanks for the link! Impressive that David made the list every year & grossed over 7 $mil since start! :D
    Breanne, ia D’s frugal and seems good at managing his finances so quite sure he’s saved most of his earnings!
    Plus he must’ve gotten some free clothes & enough TShirts from fans to last a lifetime lol.

  26. Grammyj says:

    I don’t think David spends a lot of money on himself but he would have a lot of people to pay with that money – band members, his team, lawyer, accountant. I also think he is probably helping out his family and paying for his mission. He also gives to charity. Not sure how much he has been able to save.

  27. TropicalAngel says:

    Hello FOD, my guess for the sorprise is an EP of four songs including a new one with LadyV, a cover and at least one spanish song!!

    Hey guys. :-)
    Love that deck of cards…just don’t think i’d get much playing done or if I did, i’d always lose because of the constant distractions. But would love to pull those out as a promotional tool/talking point with friends.

    The 12 Best Latino ‘American Idol’ Auditions Ever! (VIDEO)
    By Tom Castaneda | 01/30/2013 – 11:43 | 0 Comments

    This season of American Idol is only a few weeks old, but Fox’s reality singing competition has already registered some oh-so-impressive auditions from Latino Idol hopefuls like Lazaro Arbos and Isabel Gonzalez. Their tantalizing try-outs are the latest of a long list of notable golden-ticket earning performances in the show’s 12 seasons. Here’s a look at the 12 Best Latino auditions on American Idol.

    PREV slide 1 of 12 NEXT
    David Archuleta, Season 7

    It should come as no surprise that Paula Abdul wanted to squish David Archuleta after his Idol audition in Season 7. The adorable then-16-year-old Honduran/Spanish-American hopeful instantly won the hearts of the judges and viewers alike with his sweet, sweet smile and endearing performance of John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change.” Abdul couldn’t help but tap her feet as he sang, while Randy Jackson had to jump in to perform back-up. Archuleta’s sweetheart nature would take him all the way to the finals. And even though he lost to David Cook, the fresh-faced singer continues to make us smile.

    Who are the Top 10 earning American Idol alums of 2012? Check out the Forbes list! –> http://bit.ly/VnXwqN

    The Forbes list of the Top 10 American Idols of 2012 is out. Check it out below and compare it to last year’s list. The numbers are based on estimated pretax income earned from May 2011 to May 2012.

    Kelly Clarkson takes the top spot away from Carrie Underwood, who reigned supreme two years in a row. Kelly’s new record, Stronger, touring and guest stints on The Voice and Duets helped secure her top spot. Scotty McCreery’s 250K advance and his tour with Brad Paisley helped put him in 4th place. Forbes expects touring to help Adam Lambert score higher next year (I suspect the same will be true for Carrie). Her role on the NBC musical drama, Smash puts Katharine McPhee on the list. David Archuleta’s success in the Philippines helped him to round out the list at #10.

    Via Forbes Magazine

    1. Kelly Clarkson ($8 million)
    2. Carrie Underwood ($5 million, tie)
    2. Daughtry ($5 million, tie)
    4. Scotty McCreery ($4 million)
    5. Jennifer Hudson ($3 million)
    6. Jordin Sparks ($2 million)
    7. Adam Lambert ($1.5 million)
    8. Katharine McPhee ($1.1 million, tie)
    8. Kellie Pickler ($1.1 million, tie)
    10. David Archuleta ($1 million, tie)
    10> David Cook ($1 million, tie)

  34. Grannycrush says:

    They are out voting us on the EL poll. That is kind of embarrassing when they are suppose to be sleeping. Such a frustrating poll.

  35. Shanny in Australia says:

    Remember when it seemed like Melinda was pushing for david to open for the Backstreet boys/NKOTB world tour. About the same time…senseless was ‘leaked’. I think she was pushing david in those directions but it seems like he didn’t want to go there. Or at least not be pushed in certain directions. Just makes me think he wouldn’t necessarily jump at the chance to ride Justin Timberlakes coat tails, even if he had the chance.

    Ali thanks for.bringing the forbes list over. Seems in general they are earning less than in previous years.

  36. I’m heading out to El voting poll right now. See who ever want to join me there.

  37. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nice write up from Latina. Thanks Kim.

    American idol is being aired here on mainstream tv for the first time ever it seems….they must be lowering their prices, selling to other networks or something. Evidence of their demise perhaps? Just a few years too late for my liking….now if it was season 7……

  38. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Hi Linda, I’m over there for a bit but gotta head to bed. Worried about Sarahazel – hope she’s ok. I truly appreciate all that she does for the fans – voting reminders, links, videos, tweets…. Also, she’s so good about acknowledging everyone here. :( If she comes on tell her I missed her reminders and her tweets.

  39. kimk says:

    Shanny we all want those cards! is someone pushing him in the direction of JT? I would think David be might go the way of Marc Anthony before he did do similar things like NKOTB or JT. he doesn’t seem to have that pop/dance thing going on.
    lol not that I would complain if he did!

  40. kimk says:

    Kari seems to be hooked with those type artists for whatever reason so you never know what could happen!! :)

    hmm.. seems there is a lot of buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz going on in Archuletaland.
    I smell a lil somethin somthin is up!!!

  41. tami lyn says:

    strong earthquake in northern chile! 6.4

  42. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I just remember a few fan comments linking david with Justin and was adding my 2 cents.
    And yeah…she does seem to be involved with those types of artists…so never know in the future. JT is not really my thing but I would have been a happy camper if david had have ridden those NKOTB/BSB’s coat tails on a world tour – one good way he could have got some really good exposure, been able to perform for more of his fans who live outside the US, plus…it seems opening for them was fairly lucrative for Jordin Sparks – could have been cash in D’s pocket instead. But…ah well…it’s all in the past and I’m happy for D to do things his way.

    oy.
    glad to see all is ok.

  44. kimk says:

    Shanny lol well it seems Kari will be going on the next one.. sans David.
    never know when he gets back what he will do.

  45. kimk says:

    Shanny they usually pick artists that somewhat compliment their style no? Jordin has updated/matured things to say the least and seems to be quite similar to what they are doing right now.
    David’s music is a bit more.. well Demi/1D stuff still? sure once he gets back and not into MKOP/Elevator type songs things will come around to more mainstream or should I say not teenie bopper music that folks associate him with right now.
    Austin Mahone and that Disney Dreaming post is a perfect example.

    here is a recent MV of his.. young JB.
    http://youtu.be/tFgRczz0pjY

  46. nora says:

    just got home going to do some voting on EL Poll anybody want to join me? I think people thought other team giving up, I don’t think so, they just waiting for us to slow down, can’t give up now. Sarahhazel where are you. hope you are ok.

  47. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I always thought that was the idea too…but lol….been to a few concerts where I was almost in shock at how different the opener was from the artist I was there to see. Last one I went to – Morrissey – the poor opening woman was getting ragged on by a couple of people and I know I wasn’t the only one who was kinda glad when she finished her set.
    Went to a John Mayer concert – we know John, acoustic sounding, adult contemporary kinda stuff – he had Orianthe (sp?) opening for him – I don’t even recall her singing, just her and a few band buddies in their black leather blasting our ear drums with electric guitars. Endurance was definitely the operative word of that experience with her. lol

  48. VaBeachArchie says:

    Checking in before work…can’t miss anything! Will see those here late night! ENJOY your time in Davidland guys! :)

  49. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hmmm…that Austin kid…not bad sound, kinda fun & cute and harmless on the surface. Don’t like some of the underlying messages being portrayed to teenyboppers (girls at school dressed in strapless sequined evening gown type of clothes?? Lol) Hmmm…don’t know what to say about saying david comes across like that kid. I kinda agree, kinda don’t. Mostly I think *if* he does, then it’s more because he’s still got that ‘sweet kid from AI’ shackle hanging about his neck, combined with those youthful looks which are both a blessing and a curse. Even his ‘quirky’ Elevator has got a lot more depth and meaning than what that Austin kid and JB sing about. Either way, I think david has shown lots of indications that he will be moving in the Adult Contemporary direction when he gets back, which I think is what he needs to do to be taken seriously unfortunately, which is fine with me.

  50. Shanny in Australia says:

    Vabeach – lol – have a good day! :-)

  51. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – if you’re out there – ((hugs)) and fwiw…i think the complaint about all the voting comments was just a general comment, not directed at you specifically.

  52. kimk says:

    Shanny Orianthi is cool.. she was a guitar player for MJ. I think David performed at a charity event with her once. John Mayer is a really good guitar player too like her and think he played when MJ passed away at his memorial.
    I know David played with McFly and all but he was promoting his first CD which was more pop more mature I guess you could say?
    Barriers, Running and Don’t Let Go.. were the bomb!

  53. nora says:

    leaving voting on EL poll to cook dinner. Don’t forget PV at 7 tonight see you there

  54. kimk says:

    Shanny when I say mature that is what I mean.. check out Miley, Jordin, Jennette, Justin they have all gone that way. hard to think of any artist that is mild these days.
    even Carrie and Kelly have glammed up.
    David mentioned he loved the song Dynamite by Tao Cruz once this is the video to it.
    most artists young and old are this way now.
    talk about babes
    http://youtu.be/VUjdiDeJ0xg
    why I said what I said.. Bruno, JT, NKOTB.. most are very mature indeed.

    Taylor Swift is cool.. she doesn’t go all the ott.
    Jason Mraz is pretty cool too that might work if David comes back and puts out
    some mainstream music.

  55. kimk says:

    what did I miss about sarahhazel?

  56. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim… lol…yeah I know she was MJ’s guitar player and I have seen a few of you say you liked her – I just cannot connect all the dots in my head between those pieces of info and what I witnessed lol. Her act was what most would call ‘hard rock’, almost metal or even punk. Not just a bit of fancy guitar work. That’s fine if people like that, just wouldn’t have thought it would have suited John Mayers general audience – and I didn’t see anybody really into her performance either.

  57. kimk says:

    Shanny ha she is def hard rock.

  58. Shanny in Australia says:

    All that glammed up stuff turns me off. To me it spells supeficial, worldy, lacking authenticity, fake, unhealthy, misery…i could go on. There’s to much of that in the world in my opinion. No wonder the young ones are confused, growing up to fast, to sexualised to soon etc these days.
    Then there are people who I think are mature in a stylish or meaningful way…Jason Mraz as you mentioned, probably Buble (although I haven’t followed him closely to know if he’s changed or not), Regina Spektor, even Alison Sudol. And we pretty much know it was Alison Sudol who David probably had in mind when he was putting TOSOD together.

  59. kimk says:

    Shanny mainstream stuff these days. for me it doesn’t bother me too much just where the young ones are involved. and oh boy are they.
    Ed Sheeran is cool too.
    hope one day he could write with David.

  60. Shanny in Australia says:

    As for that Dynamite song….i get what david means with it….it has a catchy beat – it does get you moving and frisked up. It’s fun in that way but that’s about as far as my praise goes. Maybe that’s as far as david’s praise goes too? Who knows? He’s younger than me, I see the world differently – more conservatively now than I did when I was 22. And while I’m no spring chicken, I’m not old either. lol

  61. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, it doesn’t really bother me either cos I just ignore it. The only way it bothers me is the way it is changing society – and particularly our young ones – for the worse. I used to feel angsty when I saw it but now I just go – ho hum, just more of that same old, yawn, yawn, next please. And just try to teach my kids to have their eyes wide open to what’s really going on out there behind all this smoke and mirrors.

  62. kimk says:

    Shanny love romance sex part of life.. not to mention the high level of violence but yeah pretty out there sometimes. what I see is the US going the way of Europe.

  63. Shanny in Australia says:

    I agree Kim, that romance, sex, love is a part of life. A wonderful, wonderful part of life. But there is a time and a place. No man is an island as the saying goes. Everything has an effect. We are reaping the effects.

  64. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha…we get into the craziest conversations you and I kim. This started off with a random comment about the possibility of David teaming up with JT and now we’re talking about the serious things of life. lol
    I have very strong opinions about these things, I accept that many, many people would not agree with me. That is ok. That is life. :-)

  65. kimk says:

    Shanny ha it is fun! yeah JT.. he is performing at the Grammys. guess we get to see what’s up with him.
    hoping he dances!

  66. Grannycrush says:

    The EL poll was so unusual today. Yesterday they only had 2000 votes between 9 and 6. Today they had 5000. We on the other hand were down by over 500 votes to what we voted during that time frame yesterday. I’m exhausted. I really don’t care if people don’t want to hear about voting. That is what I am doing right now and think it will help David to stay in the limelight. I loved the fact that Sarahhazel was voting her little fingers off and reminding those of us who do vote to vote. I totally understand and respect the decision people make not to vote, but I will continue to amuse myself with voting and keeping track of the numbers. Sarahhazel….come back!

  67. Grannycrush, i am there voting with you. I have been voting almost all day and will continue to.
    I alerted the asian Archies and other international Archies to keep voting.

    Don’t forget we have POWER VOTING IN 28 mins!!!!!!

  68. kimk says:

    not only is JT performing at The Grammys..
    BOTH Adele and Barbra Streisand will be singing at The Oscars!!
    talk about jampacked goodies!!

  69. tami lyn says:

    so kari said her wedding tweet meant nothing. so what does that mean? lol

  70. Grannycrush says:

    Thanks Linda, They are out voting us right now by a bunch.

  71. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I enjoyed JT’s ‘I’m back’ vid. I will be curious how things go for him with his performance at the grammy’s. Good on him for landing the opportunity. Is he with WEG?

    Hi Grannycrush. :-)

  72. Candy says:

    OH MY-Im thinking my new fav color is BLUE!!! Along with laser green and strawberry! Gah the eyes, the lips, the gorgeousness!

  73. Candy says:

    EPPP JT is going to be performing at the Grammys?? Wooza good for him! The talent lineup is unreal!

  74. kimk says:

    tamilyn Kari has a lot going on not just David.. but it sure is fun thinking it might have to do with him. hope we get a clue or hint soon!

  75. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh and then Linda, Tamilyn and Candy popped up too. lol Well ….Hello to each of you also. :-)

  76. kimk says:

    Candy I think Matt Clayton is a genius.. that new pic is all sorts of GAHNESS!!

  77. Candy says:

    Hi Shanny, How are you…havent seen you in a while, hope you and your family are safe and dry!

  78. tami lyn says:

    hi shanny :) thanks for being here today! i was starting to get worried about u after hearing about all the floods there!

  79. tami lyn says:

    kim~ I AGREE! HE BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN DAVID NO DOUBT! :D

  80. Hi! Shanny, Candy, Tami-lyn, Kimk, Grannycrush.

    4 mins to POWER VOTING!!!!

    I sure miss Sarahhazel!!!!

    Going to PV, BB.

  81. Candy says:

    Hi Linda, Tami-lyn, can you believe the excitement that in the air…BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  82. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi all- I’m going over there now to vote. Joanie love the post and all the blue. Maybe sarahhazel lost power or something like that. Weather crazy on the east coast today. Love reading all your comments. Kim and Shanny very interesting. Going to vote. BBL

  83. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, hah…yeah we’re good AND dry. lol. Actually we were very lucky AGAIN. Lots of people lost power for a couple of days, we lost it for 2 hours. A couple of large branches and small trees got blown down in our yard but they were trees I wanted gone anyway. Our little suburb got blocked off for a day but it just meant hubby got to stay home from work. This time around the effects were more widespread because of the high winds and heavy rain but it wasn’t nearly as devastating as the floods 2 years ago. Thanks for asking. :-)
    Hows things in your neck of the woods? When are those newly adopted grandkids of yours coming home…or are they already home?

  84. Shanny in Australia says:

    Awww thanks Tamilyn. :-)

    Supergrand…hi ya! :-)

  85. Candy says:

    SGJ- Howdy Neighbor! How are you and Mr Super doing?

  86. Candy says:

    Shanny-It has been a year of crazy weather, I hope 2013 isnt more of the same. Grandkids come home Friday, cant wait to meet them. They fly out of China Friday morning and arrive home 17 hours later…on Friday afternoon. :)

  87. tami lyn says:

    HI CANDY :) HI LINDA :)

  88. kimk says:

    Linda hi I do too.. where is she? she is ok right?

  89. Candy says:

    OH Idol is on tonight… this is my least fav part of the competition…the auditions. Im so done with all the crazies they show…and the constant fighting between Nicki and Mariah is getting so old. Ratings or not…enough is enough! I need some eye-candy to keep me interested till Hollywood week!

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

    Hello Everyone!
    I heard Adele said she’s going to lip sync at the Oscars. Is she being sarcastic or flip, or does she mean it? She doesnt have to lip sync, does she? Britney has to lip sync 3/4′s of her concerts, other singers songs are so autotuned its hard for them to sing live. One of the reasons I love Davids voice, LIVE baby LIVE, that VOICE, nothing like it :grin:

    Hey tami lyn, I remember Kari saying the something old, something new saying just came to her while she was doing something, that it didnt mean anything. Now, is she just fibbing to keep us guessing? They sure have our heads spinning :grin:

  91. Candy says:

    Hi Bethy, Im going to guess Adele is being her cheeky, snarky self when she made the lip-syncing comment!

  92. tami lyn says:

    beth~ yeah i suspect she may be messing with us a bit! she has to know we in-depth analyze everyone one of her tweets!!! lol

  93. kimk says:

    ha Adele said that? she is a pretty cheeky lady.. one reason why I love her. funny and tells it like it is.

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

    Hey Candy! I just googled it & apparently she is performing a pre-recorded version of the song, but, supposedly its a safety net, if something goes wrong, they can use it. So, it seems she is preparing to sing it live, she has plenty of rehearsal time.

  95. meganloves2lol says:

    so anyone think that maybe they’ll announce that david will come maybe a few months early? haha or am i crazy to think that? i could really use it right now…

  96. kimk says:

    Beth interesting.. she really might not sing it live? why sing then way I see it.

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

    tami lyn, lol, thats for sure. I bet she gets a kick out of driving us nuts, short trip for me, I know :grin:

  98. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:
  99. tami lyn says:

    beth~ oh haha! short trip for me too!! LOL

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

    Gotta go for just a bit, be back soon :grin:

    tami lyn, maybe we can get a group rate :lol:

  101. tami lyn says:

    yeah i would like to be kari for a month and see what it feels like to be her and know david and his business! lol :)

  102. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, wow this Friday! Exciting stuff!
    So you’ve got your head around it now? lol I can only imagine the emotional processes you must go through in adopting children/grandchildren.

  103. Hi, SGJ, I don’t think i have ever heard Adele sing live.

  104. Shanny in Australia says:

    Megan…sorry but really don’t think he’ll be coming home early. But a part of me sure wouldn’t mind if he did! lol ;-) Miss him too. His music he has left us is wonderful but it’s him as well. Miss his vlogs, his interviews etc. Miss that special guy.

    But i’m happy for him to have this space. I think he really needed it.

  105. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi ya Bethy. :-)

    I hope Adele doesn’t lipsync. I don’t have any bad feelings about Beyonce doing it. To me, it is simply an example of how much unrealistic pressure the public put on her and other artists. (Although they partially bring it upon themselves by glamming things up exactly the way we were discussing earlier) I think the industry should use this incident to draw people’s attention to the fact that they are too harsh in their criticism and expectations of celebrities and then the.celebrities should follow this up by standing proudly by their imperfectness and human.

  106. Candy says:

    Shanny-what makes adjusting to adopted grandchild so unique in this case is that they are deaf…while I sig, my hubby doesnt, makes it hard for him to communicate. But hugs and a lot of love say more then words ever could.

  107. Candy says:

    Oppps *sign

  108. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy – wow, they’re deaf too. Your daughter and SIL must have huge hearts.
    I can only imagine how traumatic it must be to be taken to a whole new country, culture, language and people as a child. Oh my…yes, those kids are going to need an avalanche of unconditional love. Thanks for doing some good in the world Candy. :-)

  109. Candy says:

    Shanny- you are spot on…it is very traumatic for the kids, they are leaving behind everything they have ever known, (even if it was in an orphanage) heading off to a land they’ve never heard of with the first white non-asian people they have ever seen. But surprisingly it doesnt take long for them to adjust and become part of a loving family. :)

  110. Sigi says:

    I stay up voting until 3 am. only 2-3 of us. today all day very slow. I can’t believe DA have so many fans. Thanks to everyone that stay up at night and day with me.
    Feb 7-23 I can vote. I’m on my way to BANGKOK. All the best for Archie fans. I h0pe DA will win! Love you all……..

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

    Hello Again!

    Hey Linda! Here is Adele’s performance of Rolling in the Deep at the last Grammy show:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-pGWFiRuwc

    Hey Shanny! I do think if someone is going to give a “live” performance, they should sing live. When you’re a singer, you’re suppose to be able to sing live. If they miss a note, so what. I’d rather hear someone sing live & miss a note, than have them lip sync :grin:

  112. Shanny in Australia says:

    I’m grateful to know it doesn’t take long for them to adjust. I was thinking that even if they have come from miserable conditions in an orphanage, that at least that miserable orphanage would have at least offered some measure of security to them by at least being FAMILIAR but on the flip side, I guess the fact that they are simply leaving an orphanage – and not a loving family – makes it easier to adjust when they do come to your loving family. :-)

    Did you see my question to you yesterday Candy – about the work you do with those troubled young girls you do this convention thingey for? I did say to ignore me if the question was too personal but I wasn’t sure if you simply didn’t see my question?

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

    Hey Sigi! Thanks for all the voting you do :grin: Have a safe trip to Bangkok!!!

    Hey sarahhazel, where the heck are ya?

  114. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sigi, thanks for all you do for David! Hope your trip is for pleasant reasons and you have a wonderful time there. :-)

  115. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bethy, yeah if you can sing well I think people will overlook an off note or two. Unless they’re worried about most of their notes being off…and then in that case they should find a different career choice and live authentically.

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

    Shanny, I think about when David sang Zero Gravity. He could run all over & still sound great singing live. Its pretty amazing considering he has one working vocal chord :grin:

  117. Candy says:

    Oh sorry Shanny-I missed your comment-I work with the NJ Juvenile Justice Commission, the conference is about empowering at-risk females 13-18, some are even incarcerated and arrive with ankle bracelets. Their stories are those that nightmares are made of but just to be able to reach even one makes the day a success. We host over 500 girls. :)

  118. tami lyn says:

    now i’m wondering~ are lady V and kari in continuous contact with each other? if so, why was ladyV telling us about a press release but not kari?

  119. Sigi,…Thank you for voting. Have a nice trip, we will keep voting here until its over. Hope we can keep this big lead right now.

    Beth Thank you for Adele Vid. I will watch it right after voting.
    Just 15 more days left in this EL poll. Lets win it for @Davidarchie.

  120. Shanny in Australia says:

    Beth, I don’t know how he does it! Truly…it puzzles me…one of those superhuman powers? lol

    Tami Lyn…it almost always seems they let the other people involved in David’s projects give the hints and info. I think it is a part of how david likes us to follow a trail of clues that lead to the surprise lol. Don’t think he does it consciously really but, I suspect he enjoys watching us spazz and speculate over the possibilities. Maybe it has rubbed off on Kari too? lol

  121. tami lyn says:

    yeah shanny i think u might be right about that!!! lol :)

  122. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, I have a few more questions if you don’t mind. Just tell me to zipp it if I get to personal.

    1. How did you get involved in this?

    2. Do you or have you ever worked closely with the girls? If so, how do you approach them? How do you gain their trust?

    And btw….this is not a job interview. ;-) just think you might have some valuable insights for me. :-)

  123. tami lyn says:

    the next adam lambert!!!

  124. Shanny in Australia says:

    Tami Lyn…yeah I think he basically admitted it somewhere not long before he left. I remember him saying something to the effect of ‘I know I only give clues away’ and then he just left it hanging unapologetically. lol Wish I could remember where he said it.

  125. Shanny in Australia says:

    Huh? Who’s the next Adam Lambert? are you watching Idol Tami Lyn? lol

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

    I think David likes to be sure of things before he says anything regarding the release of music, etc…. True, he may get a bit of a kick out of making us wonder what is going on, lol. Cant wait to hear about whatever is going on though :grin:

  127. kimk says:

    tamilyn might be she didn’t or doesn’t know? isn’t Gina Orr David’s manager? also it seems she is onto other things so maybe they are shifting the professional/music side of things?
    seems she is off to the Superbowl my guess with M.

  128. kimk says:

    tamilyn thought that kid reminded me of David some.

  129. tami lyn says:

    yeah there was a chubby white boy with black hair who sounded like adam!!!

  130. nora says:

    sigi-have a great safe trip, we will keep voting on this end, we will try hard to win for David, thanks for voting with us, appreciated.

    sarahazel, if you voted with us tonight. Thanks, and do come back please.

  131. Ali says:

    kimk – I’d say Kari’s is a work trip. JT is performing there Saturday night at a benefit thing before the Super Bowl. I’m sure they’ll have a good time though — I’m jealous!

  132. Candy says:

    Shanny- years ago a friend of mine worked with the NJ JJC and he asked if I would help out for a day to cover for someone that was sick, a last minute thing. That was 23 years ago. I have always had this spot in my heart for kids that aren’t the shining stars in life, who seem to be headed down the wrong path through no choice of their own. Gaining their trust with girls who seem to enjoy being bad…can be a challenge, its more giving them the tools to empower themselves. The most rewarding part for me is hearing from them years later saying they are clean (drug free) finished high school, and have turned their life around. That doesn’t always happen but when it does its a pretty amazing feeling. Before this I was a CASA so like I said, I have this special place for those that most have turned their back on.

  133. tami lyn says:

    i wish i could party with melinda and kari!!! can u even imagine the fascinating conversations they must have??!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Have to finish laundry & stuff, so gotta
    get going.

    Beth – you are right – david does luke to be absolutely certain something is truly happening before he announces something and makes it official.

    Pocoelsy – wow, you sound like you have a busy weekend ahead. Is that typical for marriages there – to have two weddings?

  146. Hi! Ppocoelsy, ray!….Have enjoy your wedding party poco.

  148. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha! I was meaning mine Linda, not yours.

  149. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ray – what rocket is that?

    ABMS – thanks for the Bench tweet. I like that they are chuffed that they got a mention. :-)

  150. jhen says:

  151. angelbymyside says:

    candy ~ some rain and wind…we are supposed to get very high winds and flooding rains overnight.

  152. jhen says:

    I have a feeling the news is about 2 or 3. It’s nice to be guessing lol

  153. tami lyn says:

    what if david is coming back to STAR in a movie??!!

  154. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- you must be a good cook :) I miss Thai foods, Bangkok and shopping there. Wish I could bring David there lol. Only if I have a power to do that lol

  155. kimk says:

    tamilyn maybe 2014 he will. my guess this is about music already recorded.

  156. angelbymyside says:

    Shanny,
    Yes it’s going to be a very very busy weekend, and yes it’s normal for the Malaysian/Malay to have (at least ) 2 ceremonies!! one at the Bride’s and one at the Groom’s it’s like public announcement of sort … to say that these 2 people are together now if you see the girl’s big tummy don’t be surprised and this guy is taken something like that :)

    Linda, It’s going to be a fun weekend that’s for sure and I might have to be a make up artist for the bride (by request!!!what were they thinking!!) I myself hardly ware any make up nowadays just used to when I was much younger !!!

    Ray…Rocket… what rocket ?!
    Hi Jhen, Candy, Tami lyn, ABMS and everybody sorry if I miss your names :)

  158. Suzanne says:

    I think it’s great that the Davids tied! And amazing that David made a million, given that he left in March!

  159. angelbymyside says:

    Hi pocoelsy…hope you have a fabulous weekend. Sounds like you’ll have such a great time!

  160. pocoelsy says:

    Jhen I love cooking but I’m not consistant sometimes it turned out ok sometimes ummm I had to scratch my head haha depends on your luck lol Ok if David were to go to Bangkok the 2 of us would be his tour guide :D

    ABMS, Wowza is right… that pic !!! gorrrjuss, the chest !!! the smile !!! my eyes are buldging baddd.

  161. pocoelsy says:

    Haha the bars on EL poll are acting weird, guess too many votes to handle lol.

    Suzanne, yeah I love that too they are good friends, David’s a rich young man and he deserves every cents…when I was 22 I’s still trying to figure out how to earn my own money never mind making money lol.

  162. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Just got back from PV. Sigi thanks for being part of the PV team. Hope you have a good trip to Bangkok. Hi Shanny, Jhen, pocoelsy, tami-lyn, kimk, Suzanne, angelbymyside, Candy, Linda and nora. Goodnight Beth. About David performing. I was amazed how he never missed a beat or bungled a note at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in 2011. It was 90 degrees and he sang at least thirteen songs. He is and was amazing.

  163. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Oh I forgot, sorry- Hi ray. What rocket launch?? :wink:

  164. kimk says:

    well glad to see folks again comparing David
    to someone on idol
    young man was good and all but not David is not really that short.

    Jessie Medeiros ‏@Jessie_Medeiros
    He reminds me of David Archuleta! #AmericanIdol

    ‏@dreeab

    Randall. ‏@JRC_
    Hasn’t David Archuleta already been on this show? #idol

    Joey Guerra ‏@JoeyTube

    David Archuleta 2.0. #idol

  165. Jhen, never in my wildest dreams did i ever think for a moment that we would be have so many surprises, coming from David. Here we are 2013 and we still have so much to look forward to. How did he he do all this. This is why i love that young man, besides his beautiful voice & heart.

  166. angelbymyside says:

    pocoelsy ~ David has it all going on in that pic….gorgeous!!!! :) :) :)

  167. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kim- He sang good and looks like he has a good soul. And yes, he was shorter than most but we all know that height isn’t a measure of a man. I hope he does well. And I agree, there is no other like David Arhuleta. :smile:

  168. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Oh my heavens I misspelled Archuleta. SORRY

  169. What is the name of this young man that reminds you of David? I will see AI in 1/2 hour????

  170. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- Can’t remember. It was Fernandes or something like that. He comes on at the end, You know him when you see him because he is rather small in stature. I’m sorry, shouldn’t discuss the show being you haven’t seen it yet.

  187. Candy says:

    kimk-ROTF-love that ultimatum!

  188. Candy says:

    well…they had to talk him into doing a handstand! He did NOT like the idea.

  189. Sigi says:

    Switzerland. Stop by to see us when you are in Switzerland. Best wish to all of you. thanks again.
    God bless!

  190. I always wondered why David had to wear shorts and everyone else had pants on? Just saying! seemed odd. But he did look cute.

  191. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Sigi- I wish I could drop in at Switzerland. Take care,

    Goodnight all, see you tomorrow. Gonna rain a lot here in N.J. tonight and be very windy. Sweet dreams everyone.

  192. kimk says:

    Candy can you imagine all the ladies there trying to talk him into wearing them.. his reasoning behind not doing it.. his faces, pleas.. their replies.
    ‘come on David the girls will love it’
    ‘I got farmers legs’
    ‘lol ok David.. you can kiss Anya instead of tweek her nose
    know the girls will love that too.’
    ‘haha why do girls like such silly stuff..’
    crickets…
    ‘haha ok.. I’ll wear the shorts.’
    ‘but that means I pick where we go to eat’
    oh to be a fly on that tent!

  193. Goodnight Judie, sweet dreams to you too.

  194. Jhen says:

    Linda- David is full of surprises, unpredictable and love to please people. That’s why we love Him

  195. Kimk, you know David so well. I can just hear him having that conversation!!!!

  196. Jhen says:

    Linda- he is cute wearing brown-orange short , his legs look nice too lol Maybe, he doesn’t want to wear that short at first, but David is very cooperative actor, he might just laugh at it and follow the instructions lol.

  197. Candy says:

    kimk-LOL love your scenario. Gonna head out, wind is whipping like crazy, lights keep flickering. Good Night All

  198. Jhen says:

    Kimk- I love that, either kiss the girl or wearing shorts lol, funny. David should choose kiss the girl lol

  199. Jhen….i agree with you, David should have agreed to kiss the girl. At least a kiss on the cheek or forehead. But we knew that was not going to happen……

  200. Jhen says:

    Linda- yeah, he is conservative. Anything he could do, except kissing, remove the shirt and bed scenes lol. But I like his decisions, not too many artist will stick to his principle. Most of the artist, if the price is right, they resort to those lip kissing, nude scene etc. That’s why I admire David, he will stand for his moral, he is man of principle. But I think kiss on the cheek and forehead are ok, who know’s when David back in the tv series or movies he will do kissing on cheek or forehead. But I doubt it, if it will be lip kissing lol

  201. Jhen!!! AGREE!!!!!!. I think when David gets back & if he does another Mini Serie, or movie and he agrred to kiss on cheek or forehead.
    The FANDOM will go wild!!!!!!!!!!!!

  202. meganloves2lol says:

    we do know it’s something with music right? i mean maybe he got engaged? don’t a lot of people meet their future wife on their mission?

  203. mango says:

    megan, he wouldn’t get engaged on his mission. Also, before David falls in love and gets engaged, he’s going to have to go on a date or two. That’s not going to happen on his mission.

  204. cq#DA2014 says:

    I really think that a lot of David’s extreme conservatism was because he knew that was what he needed to do in order to go on this mission, he didn’t want to jeopardize his chance, from what I’ve read they have to be saint-like to be able to even go, jmo. Hoping that when he returns he will have a freer spirit and go for the things that were taboo for him before the mission.

  205. Shanny in Australia says:

    Most people come home from their missions even stricter and more conservative Cq. They become more dedicated to their beliefs, not less.

    Sigi, you are a sweetie. I too would love to visit switzerland some day! Enjoy your trip – sounds wonderfully exciting. :-)

  206. Shanny in Australia says:

    So was it the shorts that Kari and co. had to twist david’s arm for? I remember someone saying he had to be talked into something but don’t remember if we found out or not…?
    Funny how he doesn’t like wearing shorts. My eldest daughter and him have.so much in common…..just wait a few years for her to grow up enough david….. ;-)

  207. Shanny in Australia says:

    She’s beautiful too david….everyone says so….you won’t be disappointed….. ;-)

    lololol
    She would be completely embarrassed….. lol

    Don’t mind me….just entertaining myself while no-one is here….

  208. meganloves2lol says:

    shanny – haha how old is your daughter now?

  209. cq#DA2014 says:

    Shanny, that’s to bad. I sure hope that it’s not in David’s case. Another bubble bursted, lol.

  210. Shanny in Australia says:

    Megan, she’s 13. lol But ya know…30 and 21 is doable. Just need david to hold those girls off long enough. ;-)

    Cq, yeah sorry, thought I better put that out there once and for all. lol

  211. cq#DA2014 says:

    But Shanny couldn’t a person be strong in their beliefs and not be so uptight conservative…I believe it can happen…I know plenty of people that have very strong beliefs, but are not uptight. Imo, if David indeed become even more conservative and uptight that he can’t even kiss a girl on the forhead, that’s just wrong, imo.You know what Shanny, I’m optimist that he will be the exception and put his personal beliefs in his private life and become a freer entertainer. Now mind you, Shanny, I didn’t say he needed to give up what he is and what he beliefs…just keep that uptight conservative side in his private life.

  212. Shanny in Australia says:

    Cq, i’ve got a few things I will say in response but I can’t right now. I’ll come back later though. It’s probably best that I sit on that one for a while too. lol

  213. shansien says:

    cq#DA2014 I think I might be the only one who feels this way but I don’t care if David ever kisses anyone in public or does any kind of acting at all for that matter. Or dances. Or wears shorts. Or whatever. Just as long as he SINGS. :)

  214. kimk says:

  215. kimk says:

    singing, acting, author, dancer!! :)

    http://youtu.be/PIaOAOSwE8w

    as I recall he did just call out US peeps for sitting themselves down and not dancing, grooving to the music.. yup I am
    thinking DWTS might just be a possibility!

  216. kimk says:

    oohh.. I forgot model!!

    http://youtu.be/awe8HuXqHHA

    Kari did mention a fragrance too I think but didn’t have time?
    that would be cool.. come to think about it thinking skin care products might even be a better bet!

  217. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD!

    kimk…Think David already has some plans for 2014….hope it includes doing it ALL! Hope that he will be more open to ideas that reflect his age…23!

    sarahhazel…..Thinking about you! Missing your comments!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY! :)

    ENJOY YOUR DAY GUYS!

  218. VaBeachArchie says:

    Guess I REALLY want you to ENJOY your day! lol

    11 am eastern time next countdown!

    http://www.myxph.com/default.aspx

    #7!!

    poor thing plummeted after LadyV said we had to wait a week for the news..
    not sure if that has anything to do with it but I guess not having anything cooking
    right now might affect the inspiration to vote?

  220. kimk says:

    VABeach I know.. he’ll be 23 a man
    have a fabulous tan and Spanish accent to boot.. I am so with you on that front!
    good morning!!

  221. kimk says:

    wonder if the fact Kari is off to the Super Bowl etc the reason for the delay?
    no time to help out with whatever the news is?
    of course just my head at it again but could be.
    dying to know what IT IS!!!

    watched idol last night.. was ok.
    some nice talent but nothing that really popped out for me.

  222. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Ok, I’m back for a bit.

    Cq, I took a break recently to ponder a few things regarding my participation in this online fandom world. I am weary of many things. There are many wonderful things about being an online fan but it is not always easy. In the past I have tried to keep the peace, suck things up etc. There are a lot of contentious/offensive things that get said over and over again between the lines and basically…I’ve had enough. I am changing the way I participate.

    I have always loved this quote by Martin Luther King Jr “In the end it is not the words of our enemies we will remember but the silence of our friends”. I have come to the conclusion that I have not been a good friend sometimes. I have kept quiet or tried to remain neutral so as to keep the peace. But I sense some things have changed because so many people are doing that these days. And I don’t think it is necessarily a good thing. So…first of all… I want to apologise to all those people who may have not felt supported by me when they should have been able to count on me to have their back. I will do my best to support people from now on. I will do my best to speak up when I see things that I believe to not be good. I will call things and people out. I don’t want to be contentious. I want to be understanding of different perspectives but I’m gonna speak up from now on. If it makes people dislike me, then I will have to wear that. It’s either that or just slink off to lurkdom. And right now, I’m trying to do my best to support David by not slinking off to lurkdom.

    So….with that off my chest…let me address what you had to say Cq….
    First off….your use of the word ‘uptight’ over and over is contentious/offensive. Uptight is a word that has derogatory connotations. I dislike how you judge David like that and as I have often spoken about my conservative standards, I feel you are also calling me and all the people who think/feel like me, uptight too and I resent that. I am not uptight. David is not uptight. We just value different things from you. David likes to have fun, I like to have fun…I think I have made a spazzing fool of myself on here enough times for that to be obvious surely.

    Ok, next thing…you ask ”… couldn’t a person be strong in their beliefs and not be so uptight conservative…”. I am not the philosopher and oracle of all truth, so I may be wrong and I reserve the right to change my mind upon deeper reflection…but I believe the answer to your question is …No. I don’t believe it is possible. If it were possible that is like someone saying…’I think murder is wrong but if I have to do it to entertain people then I will murder someone’. Yes, extreme example but i choose it to clearly illustrate my point. If you believe something deeply, how can you be wishy-washy with it? How can you just live by it sometimes and ignore it other times? If your willing to put something on and off like an old sweatshirt, then you can’t hold that belief very strongly can you?

    Now…as for David’s situation…some of his decisions are based upon ‘strong beliefs’ and some are probably based upon what he has simply felt comfortable/uncomfortable about. I suspect those things which have just been insecurities – like wearing shorts – may change in the future. He has had to do his growing up in the spotlight. As for those things which are not insecurities but ‘strong beliefs’, I think they are less likely to change in the future.
    I hope that answers your question. :-)

  223. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Kim and Vabeach (and everyone else hopping online this morning)…I’m sorry to have to start your day off with such serious conversation but as you can see…I’m saying it like it is now. lol

    And Vabeach…lol thanks for REALLY hoping we ENJOY our day. :lol: ;-)

  224. kimk says:

    not sure if he does go more conservative then he is already that will help his career but not sure that matters to him? does he want to be that famous? I
    loved his time in Manila and hope for more of that when he returns over there and here in the states. he was on fire there so happy and hoping for the best.

  225. kimk says:

    lol had another idea what went on in that tent that MDW felt the need to post a pic about..
    they were going over future scenes and maybe it did call for some close contact and well in the end the shorts won out!?
    http://youtu.be/LUousQvzEo8
    great scene too so kilig
    I miss Nandito Ako!

  226. kimk says:

    would love a NA DVD one day.. and one with BTS outtakes!!

    LOVE the scene where Josh realizes Anya might have a ‘suitor’!!

    http://youtu.be/x_zSXDYa4EI

  227. kimk says:

    Shanny saying like it is as it should be.. for all. always been a fan of that if you wish to.

  228. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Kim we can only watch and see what David will do. I assume we will get more of what we got on his Christmas tour and more of what he was like in the Phils. But there are some things that will be less likely to change. For instance, I wouldn’t put my money on him taking his shirt off while swinging his hips on DWTS. lol

    Speaking of NA…do you know if JR has posted the NA vids anywhere since they were taken down?

  229. kimk says:

    lol after what I saw going on with the latest Presidential election have learned I am not alone in all that. was quite interesting to say the least.
    love that folks are still allowed to voice their opinions and hope that never stops.
    unfortunately their are countries where that is not allowed.
    kind of what makes America great at least as I see it.
    and hope that always stays the same.

  230. kimk says:

    Shanny lol I agree with that.. would be surprised if he ever does the show to be honest. but I can hope! he has surprised us in the past and I expect he will in the future.
    would venture a guess Spanish music might be something he will pursue if I had to pick only one thing. looking forward to it and think that might be a perfect thing for him to go after.
    hoping they found the Spanish version of Crush he said he recorded and that might be part of what is coming our way.
    wish we had some clues as to what is up!

  231. kimk says:

    Shanny not sure if she did.. maybe they are getting ready to release the NA DVD?

  232. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Kim, I think most of us have tried to overlook things at one time or another in order to keep the peace. I still want peace but ALL people need to be respectful for peace to really happen. There is a difference between sharing an opinion and being offensive, thoughtless, a bully, rude and sarcastic. Unfortunately, it often deteriorates beyond sharing an opinion. (Not saying you were all those things Cq, just saying in general…)

    Anyway, I don’t mean to keep dragging things down. We have good things to look forward to. :-)

  233. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Now…spanish music is something I WOULD bet money on! lol
    (If I was a betting person that is. ;-) )

    I also think he’ll dance more and more as time goes on. :-)

    Hey Shansien…when it comes down to it…I think we’d all settle for just the singing but the other stuff is fun too. Like a bonus thrown in for good measure. :-)

  234. kimk says:

    ray just saw the rocket launch on TV from FL! so cool and miss that.. used to see the shuttle going up when I lived by St. Augustine. do
    hope they keep some sort of space program/museum there it is great for all involved.
    sad day if it closes down.

  235. kimk says:

    Shanny not everyone thinks as you do.. or I do for that matter. for that reason alone for me I am open to many sides of things. to each their own I suppose and just as long as folks don’t try to change or force things on me I am ok.

  236. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Kim, maybe we will have a better chance of getting an NA Dvd once it airs in the States…? Is it still going to air in the States?
    Mostly, I don’t think our chances are very good. Didn’t they say a DVD wasn’t very likely anymore?

  237. kimk says:

    Shanny not sure if I would just settle for anything where David is involved.. will always hope and wish for more if that happens going forward. he is that talented and can probably do it all if he wishes.

    perfect example of an artist raising the bar
    Pink’s Try from the AMA’s.
    she was amazing!!

    http://youtu.be/4FbN4L4SM8E

  238. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    I am ok with other people’s opinions too Kim. I find them interesting a lot of the time. I like to know what makes people tick, to find out WHY they think something, not just what they think. But as I said…it goes beyond that sometimes.

    I know that YOU kim, often have somewhat opposing views to me, I get that, I get that you may not agree with what I have said today but I don’t recall you ever really being rude about it.

    Anyway, I think it’s best if I hop off for now. Let things change course a bit. I’ll come back and read later if you or anyone else wants to have their say….but…lol…remember I may have my say in response too! :lol: ;-)

  239. kimk says:

    Shanny heard a few rumors.. that it was David who pooh pooh’d it and the opposite that it was coming out but only in Asia. who knows maybe they didn’t think it would make money? sure would love to have one though.

  240. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    I can’t understand why David would have turned it down…? Strange. I guess we’ll do what we always do….wait and see. lol

  241. kimk says:

    Shanny ha well that is true.. kind of enjoy the goings back and forth too.

    TO THOSE PARTICIPATING IN THE EL POLL VOTING: AN IMPORTANT UPDATE as of Jan 31 8:20pm

    Via PollDaddy:
    DA – 53.16% (759,235 votes)
    LMH – 44.29% (632,510 votes)
    GAP: 126,725

    Interesting dev’t w/ TWITTER votes
    It appears several LMH fans have created several accounts in twitter w/ the sole purpose of voting. Out of the 31 formerly active members they have in their FB group, about 10 accounts are actively spewing the LMH vote. Their twitter votes now total 23.262 votes & growing at a fast rate. Last week they were only at about 4,500. See my compilation as of date below:

    So this is the strategy they have come up with to throw us off cos they cannot do it via Poll Daddy. At the rate, they are going, there is high probability to wipe out our lead in the remaining 2 weeks of the contest, unless we make a similar counter attack via Twitter.

    I still have to check their FB and YT activities. But the twitter activity is the easiest to manipulate so I prioritized checking that.

    FYI

  243. jackryan4da says:

    Ok, the image did not come out in my previous post, so here it is:

    http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/wp-content/uploads/LMH-act-via-Twitter.png

  244. kimk says:

    jackryan wow that is great.. hope it holds up for him and he wins!
    loved your recap too.. was so funny!! thanks!

  245. jackryan4da says:

    kimk – pls re-read my post re the twitter votes. This is how I see happening if the current trend continues:

    By my current calculation, their growth rate is about 1% per 15mins. If they continue at this rate in twitter, they only need 11 DAYS to WIPE OUT our lead over them at the Poll Daddy.

    Bottomline: If we do not do any counter attack via twitter or upscale the gap at Poll Daddy by a significant amount, LMH will wean by Feb 13.

    I dunno which is easier for those participating in the power voting but that’s what the numbers are showing me.

  246. jackryan4da says:

    And that’s WIN, not WEAN.

    Sorry for the mistypo

    Joanie hi and thanks!

  250. Grannycrush says:

    I am not big on twitter and have only a few followers. I know there is a big group who are on twitter a lot. If you are on twitter with the FODers and other David fans, maybe you could remind them to tweet @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I vote for David Archuleta for Pinoy Newsmaker of the year. They have to change a part of it each time they tweet, I think.
