Happy Birthday Richard (PapaFOD) !!

   

HaPpPy HaPpY BiRtHdAy to Richard Parkinson,@onerichsong aka PapaFOD~ the wonderful man , uber talented artist, and reason we’re privileged to call this beautiful place “home!”  We’d like to wish you the happiest of days!! May it be filled with faith, family, friends, fun, and of course, food….possibly even some of this:

Thank you for all you have done, and continue to do for us. You are always a special light in the dark, a presence of calm, a voice of reason, and a source of great wisdom when we need it most. Plus you’re a pretty fun guy to be around~ plain and simple! :)

It would be so much fun to all be able to gather together one day at Pat’s BBQ and listen to you at open mic time! Speaking of which, how long has it been since we’ve been treated to an online little “casual” concert from you? *hint hint*

Looking forward to continuing our adventure with David (and you) here for years to come! ..oh..and a personal little thank you to Janel ( @Nellie1983)  for her heads up about this special day, today. I’m just not on facebook enough to have known what a very special day this was, but I’m glad she was a “little birdie” to let us know. :)

Thank you too, for all of the beautiful music and arrangements you’ve blessed us with. Can’t wait for all that you’ll continue to bless the world with as well~ Here’s to the first one that introduced so many of us to you and your great talents! :) We’ll always think of you~

The Squire Connection

Yesterday, Lady V (on twitter) expounded from Thursday, on some of the info re: tracks on David’s upcoming “No Matter How Far.” Let’s take a look and happily muse about the possibilities. :)

…and have to throw in this past tweet of Lady V’s where she shares her opinion of Matt Squire! :)

On The Other Side Of Down, Matt Squire participated in the writing/and or producing of Look Around , Parachutes and Airplanes, and the iTunes pre-order bonus track: The Day After Tomorrow. These songs were all released in the US.

One song which appeared on TOSOD ATE (Asia Tour Edition) co-written (along with David and Lady V) and produced by Matt Squire Is Everything and More.  As I ponder  and thank David, Kari, and Team Archuleta for this amazing upcoming gift of “No Matter How Far,” I wonder….Could EAM possibly be a track on No Matter How Far??

I really have no idea, but because I love David’s live performances of EAM sooooo much, I’ll indulge myself in sharing this “far stretch.”  I’m still hoping for the chance to one day  hear David sing it live as he did so incredibly beautifully on his Asia tour. :)


**credit on this vid to Rusharr** Looks like I’ve posted it once before, but hey, it’s worth another posting, right? ;) It’s beautiful!!

What are your thoughts and/or guesses? I’m just plain giddy thinking about “No Matter How Far” and the first single “Don’t Run Away” being released THIS MONTH!!!! :D

  10. Billboard Charting says:

    SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO THINK ABOUT

    FOR THOSE US FANS ORDERING NMHF FROM WOWHD, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THOSE SALES WON’T BE COUNTED TOWARDS BILLBOARD. IMO, IT’S IMPORTANT FOR DAVID THAT WE TRY AND GET NMHF TO CHART ON BILLBOARD. PLEASE RECONSIDER AND ORDER FROM AMAZON, ETC.

    THANKS.

  11. Jhen says:

    Love all the buzz about NMHF, hope it sells well both in US and International, support David.

  12. jackryan4da says:

    We are at a CRITICAL level :(

    http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/wp-content/uploads/summary-EL-tally-feb3.png

    Shocked?

    But am sure we will bounce back

  13. OoO says:

    Ha ha I will do my best because we are getting some rock music from David soon can’t wait to hear it. btv (back to vote he he).

  14. Jhen says:

    Can’t wait for all the song list to come out, hope next week.

  15. Grannycrush says:

    They voted around 73,000 votes since last night. We had about 14,000 which was a pretty good night compared to our other nights. This was not unexpected. That was why I and others have been encouraging the vote. They did a similar thing to us last Sat. We needed a much bigger lead. They pretty much have more voters than we do. We never have 20 or 30 at a time voting like they do. Those of us who vote have done a great job, but I am afraid we will need more voters to win this. Kind of sad how all of our hard work can be desimated so fast. We have another weekend to get through, too. Thanks again to the voters.

  16. Grannycrush says:

    They actually have almost 40 voters right now.

  17. LCT DA#2014 says:

    What can we do, we still have only a few voting! When did we become lethargic? Is it because David is gone?

  18. Suzanne says:

    The poll daddy links aren’t going to the voting page.

  19. applegreen says:

    there aren’t enough voters on our side… come on guys this is really critical. Please help us vote!

  20. kimk says:

    Joanie thank you!!
    oh my gosh.. I swear Kari is the luckiest gal alive!!
    two great guys and artists to work with!

    videos from last night
    he was good..
    gotta say this after watching them though
    our guy has it all going on! oh and
    what will David be like when he is 32!!? :D

    Billboard ‏@billboard
    Justin Timberlake’s first solo concert in five years included hits and new cuts, including “That Girl” Watch: http://blbrd.co/14ID0Yw

  21. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Sarahazal, if you are here can you do an emergency PV call/tweet?

  22. Patty-Ann says:

    I’ve been voting. I know some think it’s just a silly poll . I respect that. But I just think David deserves to win this one for all he did in the Philippines right before he left. And we did have a bigger lead and were doing well. Being Superbowl Sunday is gonna be hard. Not a lot of voters. At the rate they’re going they will overtake us and we’ll be trying to play catch-up again. I hate playing catch-up when it took so long to even get in the lead. Oh well, just need more voters. It keeps his name out there, look at the names on the list, at least he’s on the list and it shows David HAS FANS. Anyway, my motivation for voting is I think of all the CDs and autographs David signs for us. That helps me to keep voting when I don’t feel like it.

  23. jackryan4da says:

    Ok, I left SOS messages on almost all Archie sites that I could get in and tweeted Asian & Latin Archie accounts.

    Am not losing hope. We will recover the ground we lost today.

  24. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    I’m trying to powervote, but it says thanks for voting. Do I have to clear my cookies in between each vote? :/ I will vote on the mq for now.

  25. applegreen says:

    Joy4archieDA14, I bookmark the site on my bookmarks bar. After voting, I just click the bookmarks bar and the page is refreshed!

  26. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    I have another question. I was thinking of something…and someone correct me if I’m wrong. Ok if Don’t Run Away is being pushed to AC radio, doesn’t that mean if he has a music video come out, it would go to vh1?

  27. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    applegreen Ok thanks. I refreshed the page myself. Maybe that’s why it didn’t work.

  28. VaBeachArchie says:

    As a fan of David’s and Nandito Ako I think voting is a GREAT way to show our APPRECIATION FOR ALL DAVID HAS DONE! He far EXCEEDED our expectations by leaving us so much…and it must have taken alot of time away from friends and family! WE CAN DO THIS if everyone gets on board! David deserves it! Come on…let’s get that MILLION VOTES!

    Unforunately work call for me…will be back later tonight! WILL be on the PV ! ENJOY YOUR DAY! VOTE! :)

  29. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Ok got my musiqtone votes in. Now going to try the polldaddy one.

  30. applegreen says:

    Incredible!!! They are still voting with around 40 peeps, maybe more. Where are David’s fans???

  31. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Ok I added the polldaddy to my bookmarks and it’s working now. Going to vote for as long as I can.

  32. LCT DA#2014 says:

    I’m here, Applegreen. Been here for hours and thinking to myself – If I were a fan who didn’t believe in voting on silly polls (which I can respect) would I try to help out a bit knowing how important it may be to a few who find it as a way to support David while he’s gone and to reward him for all that he did before he left? You bet I would!

  33. Nita says:

    wow LMH fans are amazing. They really want to make this guy make it big in the Philippines. They are over powering us big time.

  34. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Happiest of birthdays to Papa FOD Richard Parkinson!!!! Have a great birthday music man!!

  35. Nita says:

    Happy Birthday Richard. Hope you have an awesome day celebrating your birthday.

  36. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Man I’m going as fast as I can on this polldaddy thing, and they are going up like 30 and we’re only going up like 4 or 5 at a time. D:

  37. Philly Fan says:

    Been voting but I think they have a new strategy with letting us PV during the week and they rally the troops on the weekend to get as many as their fans as possible which in this case they have many so it is easier for them to gain the ground they have lost during the week. I know this has been discussed but maybe we may have to change our way of voting to match theirs if possible. If we are dealing with teenagers it may be hard because they do have the time. If we could get 100 fans to vote at the same time we could take this. David does deserve this award IMO. Maybe once the Musiqtone Poll is done we can concentrate on the EL Poll. JMHO

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

    Hello Everyone!

    I want to thank all of you who are voting like crazy for David, it is greatly appreciated. I also appreciate the reminders to vote. But, in trying to get voters, its beginning to sound a bit like scolding if we all arent voting as much as everyone else. We all have obligations of different kinds that take priorities, we work, etc….. cant always vote. I want David to win too & I’ll vote all I can, but realize that things come up for people that take priority. Just know people are doing what they can, when they can. Again, truely grateful for all you mega voters!!!!!! You guys are FANtastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, off I go to vote :grin:

  39. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    We’re going to need a lot more voters, or they are going to catch us. :(

  40. nora says:

    where are all the Archie fans that appreciated David for doing Nandito Ako, this is a way to thank him, Come on guys vote.

  41. kimk says:

    lct folks aren’t voting for David for a number of reasons. some of his fans are onto other things/artists.. my timeline has Beliebers, Directioners, folks who have gone back to the JoBros, Ed Sheeran, JT, etc. doesn’t mean they don’t like David just that he is not around.
    to be expected if you think about it but not really as bad as I thought it would be. thought I would be talking to myself here and around all the time not just sometimes.
    as for me I vote and remind folks to vote. not as much as you all do but I do.

  42. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Relax Beth! If it doesn’t apply to you – don’t feel bad… BUT David does have over a million followers that could stand to get a reminder or two. Have a good day! :)

  43. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Well we’re going up more now. yay!! They have to sleep sometime. :D

  44. LCT DA#2014 says:

    As I said to Beth, if it doesn’t apply to you – don’t worry! But we need somewhere to put out reminders and we’re limited in places so disregard anything that says VOTE in it! :)

    David Archuleta Prepares Album Even as David Archuleta is off serving a two-year mission for the Mormon church…

    David Archuleta Prepares Album
    Even as David Archuleta is off serving a two-year mission for the Mormon church in South America, he’s keeping the music coming. Archuleta will release “No Matter How Far” on March 26. It’s a combination of new music and tracks previously unreleased in the U.S.

  46. kimk says:

    ‘tracks previously unreleased in the US’?

    so my guess these extra songs will be ones we heard before?

  47. kimk says:

    I do know LadyV’s song we never heard it on it so stoked!!

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

    LCT, I understand reminders, but comments like dont you appreciate what Davids done for us, then vote, etc… I think you’re an incredible fan of Davids & appreciate all you do, but I dont appreciate being told to relax or that if I’m a good fan of Davids & appreciate him, I’ll vote. I vote all I can, I just cant vote as much as some & it doesnt mean I dont appreciate David, I appreciate him more than you could ever know. Nora just said something similar, what happened to all of the ones who appreciated Nandito Ako, you should be voting. Well, we do & we are when we can. Post all the reminders you want, thats great, just dont appreciate that those who dont vote or cant vote are looked at as if we dont appreciate David. I do hope more people vote, when they are able. Back to voting :grin:

    It’s quarter to midnight! Yikes! Gotta head back to the dorm! Here’s another post of Ryan teasing @DavidArchie on AI http://tmblr.co/ZuxaEwdIUVFH :D

    :lol:

    love David’s response.. adorbs!

  50. Carmela says:

    Hi, I haven’t been here in awhile. I wanted to come on during my birthday because David and I share the same birthday. (but I’m only 20 now). A week before Christmas I fell while skiing and broke my ankle and tore my acl. I am glad I finished my semester of school before it happened. I am taking classes this semester but it is hard wobbling around on crutches. Oh well. I had only been skiing one other time when I was younger so I didn’t know what I was doing. I was glad to come on here and see David will be releasing more music. He gets me through bored times. I’ve had a lot of those since my ski accident. Hope you all have a fun Super Bowl Sunday. My dad wants the Ravens to win. Not me, I want the 49ers to win.

  51. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Joanie for the fantastic Sunday post.
    Go 9ers, hehehe!

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

    On the polldaddy vote, I click on Davids name, hit vote, then I click out of the site, then click on the link & repeat. It goes pretty quick, but it there a quicker way to do it? When I try to refresh, it doesnt work???

  53. Patty-Ann says:

    Beth, I understand what you’re saying and I hope my comment didn’t come across that way. I was just trying to state my opinion about it. I have felt that way over poll voting at times myself, like Q102 even though I voted. I don’t consider any fan bad or under appreciated for not voting. Some like polls and some don’t and sometimes we just don’t have the time to vote because of our responsibilities. For those who are voting I feel bad we lost over half our lead. Just hope we can get more voters. No one should feel bad for not voting or not having time to vote either. Think we all are great fans and love David. I can’t wait to hear his new album.

  54. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Beth, where did I write that David was not important to some? This is what I wrote and there ARE fans who have put out that they don’t believe in voting on these silly polls and they stick by it and I have to respect that. This is what I wrote:
    “If I were a fan who didn’t believe in voting on silly polls (which I can respect) would I try to help out a bit knowing how important it may be to a few who find it as a way to support David while he’s gone and to reward him for all that he did before he left? You bet I would!” Not sure why it was interpreted differently – Guess I need to stop commenting and do what I do best: Be a lurker and not worry about hurting the feeling of those who are regulars. I try to fit in but guess it’s my turn to be turned onto! So I’m sorry if I offended you or Kimk and anybody else!

    love seeing that cutie pie face on that chart!! :)

  56. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I can’t vote on most sites because I’m not sure why, but my computer doesn’t like the sites and it either freezes or doesn’t come up for me to vote at all. I was able to vote on the TV guide poll but that’s a one time vote. I am always multi tasking with other things on the computer.
    I can understand LCT’s point, I would put in a few votes if I could, but wouldn’t be able to take the time to power vote.

    Carmela, sorry to hear about your ski accident. Hopefully you can heal soon and get back to normal. How long do you have to be on crutches? Hope you had a good birthday despite everything. Hugs!!!

    And once again……HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD AKA PAPA FOD!!

  57. Nita says:

    Beth refresh doesn’twork for me either. Back arrow works for me.

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

    LCT, I dont want you to stop commenting, love your comments. I think I’ve been pretty nice & respectful in my comments, just saying what I feel. Statements like this “What can we do, we still have only a few voting! When did we become lethargic? Is it because David is gone? You say you understand if people dont vote, then you say even if you dont vote, wouldnt you vote a little because its important to others? David fans always help eachother when possible. I’m not going to comment on this anymore. I really appreciate all of the enthusiasm everyone has for voting & all of the hardwork, you and everyone have done, still doing, I’ve said that repeatidly. I dont want this to turn into an problem. Just ignore what I said if you dont agree, not a problem :grin:

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

    Hey Nita! I tried that, doesnt seem to work to well. I’ll just keep voting the way I have been, works for me :grin:

    Patty Ann You’re comment was ok. I’ve just seen so many comments that have felt a bit pushy. I didnt mean to single out LCT, wonderful fan, just responding to a comment. All I was trying to say is everyone is doing what they can when they can :grin: Now, back to voting!!!!!

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

    Hey Carmella, Hope you have a speady recovery.

    Gosh, the fans of Lee Min are a determined bunch.

  61. Patty-Ann says:

    no problem. btw, forgot to say Happy Birthday to Richard.

    Have a good day everyone.

  62. breanne says:

    Just got home and how did the LMH fans gain 85,000 votes since I went to bed last night?!?!?!?!? Lifestyle Entertainment posted on fb last night that LMH has almost 25,000 twitter votes to our 1,100. We have to step up the game!!! When we get a chance on twitter also tweet this for a vote:
    @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoy I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newsmaker Of The Year

    In the voting comments on EL it says we are getting nervous & we probably are. LMH has 7 million followers on twitter so let’s VOTE hard & get David the win!!!!

  63. Nita says:

    Gee! LMH fans are furious. They are organized and none stopped. I wonder if they have rotation for every 40 fans every hour. Don’t they sleep? I am not giving up so I will keep voting.

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

    Hey Breanne! When you tweet that message, do you have to add other words each time or can you just tweet that message over & over again?

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD!!!!!!

    Hey LCT! Are there any helpful hints to vote faster on the polldaddy poll?

  65. Carmela says:

    Janel, I will be on crutches for a couple more weeks, but I hate physical therapy for my acl & knee the worst. I think it will be easier without a cast on.
    Thank you Beth.
    Since getting my Forevermore CD my favorite song now is Wherever You Are. So pretty. It fits nicely with the new CD title “No Matter How Far.”

  66. nora says:

    is anybody having a problem on Poll daddy, maybe my computer but voting for me is very slow. Can’t believe with all the Archie fans we can’t get at least 20 people to vote.

  67. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Joanie, I’m not really a “little birdie” more like a “big birdie”. Wish I was a little birdie. LOL. Working on that, but it’s hard when I’m stressed about things, I bake, therefore I eat what I bake. It’s a bad cycle. Ha! Oh well, at least I haven’t gained any of the weight I lost, but need to get back into the swing of eating healthier.
    Glad I was able to remind you about Richard’s birthday.

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

    the polldaddy poll is working for me ok, sluggish about 1/2 an hour ago, ok now.

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

    Gotta go run an errand, will check in later (& to vote, the voters for Lee min are a pesky bunch :roll: :grin: ) Ciao!

  70. nora says:

    sorry guys my computer is having a problem had to leave EL poll will give it a rest and come back when I can. can’t believe his fans are voting like crazy, where are all the Archies? Guess Asian Archies didn’t take over when we were sleeping. Oh well BBL

  71. Janel aka Nellie says:

    When does the poll daddy poll end for Foreign newsmaker of the year? I was finally able to get into it through firefox.

  72. breanne says:

    We are only 57,000 votes ahead of LMH on the EL poll now!!! :( Last night after power voting we were 141,000 ahead!!! I can’t believe the amount of votes they got in since last night!! With all their twitter votes they are basically tied with us!! :( :(

    Be sure to get all your votes in for Everybody Hurts for MV of the Year today. Voting ends at 11:59 pm tonight. Maybe after this voting we can help make a final 10 day push on the EL poll!!
    http://bit.ly/rtQm6M

  73. Sarahhazel, sorry was not here for the PV, had to go to church. WHAT HAPPENED????
    50% Where are all the Archies that usually vote on this poll.?
    I will be voting for the rest of the day, i will also vote from my cell phone.
    My comp is working really slow right now, i hope it gets faster as the day goes on.
    I won’t be commenting much but i will be voting.

    @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newmaker Of the Year

  85. kimk says:

    we sure are all worked up!!

  86. tami lyn says:

    kim~ lol! it’s like everyone is just ready to go over the edge! thanks alot david archuleta!!! LOL~ JK! :)

  87. tami lyn says:

    can we send david candy? like say, a chocolate easter bunny, etc. or is that a no no? has kari said anything about this?

  88. kimk says:

    tamilyn don’t think so? how about an Easter Bunny card?

  89. tami lyn says:

    thanks kim! good idea :)

  90. kimk says:

    tamilyn ha or him as the Easter Bunny.

  91. tami lyn says:

    oh yeah that’s right! david and the bunny costume! so cute

  92. tami lyn says:

    just saw on a missionary FB page~some missionaries go for 18 months, not 24! is it possible that is what david is doing??

  93. ambber says:

    voted when it was 877,987 now it is 880,002. have to stop because Super Bowl is starting.
    Hope other people is still voting. we gained about 500 votes so far.

  94. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey guys. :-)
    OoO – yeah! bring on the David Archuleta rock music!!! Can’t wait! :-)

    Could someone ease post the polldaddy link. The one at the top doesn’t work. Gotta keep my promise to get it 10mins worth of love each day.

  95. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh ambber – you read my mind! lol Thanks.

    Tamilyn – girls go for 18, guys 2 years.

  96. angelbymyside says:

    tami lyn ~ I wouldn’t send chocolate…it would probably melt by the time David got it!

  97. angelbymyside says:

    tami lyn ~ I think the girls go on a mission for 18 months

  98. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ok, that link isn’t working either…

  99. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, is Justin Timberlake still with WEG? Does Belinda look after him?
    Kari is his ‘tour’ manager right?

  100. Mike says:

    you are funny kim, david will not get trophy for winning. But they will mention all the winners in the philippine tv. So I guess it is good keeping his name mention and keep his popularity in the philippines.

  101. Shanny in Australia says:
  102. angelbymyside says:

    American Idol Fans ‏@IdolWetpaint

    Can you believe this? American Idol Alum David Archuleta New Album Coming Soon! http://wet.pt/Uk4QbP

  103. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, that’s interesting. I managed to post without apparently saying anything!

    I actually posted the polldaddy link….maybe the website is calling a truce or exhausted or something? lol

  104. kimk says:

    Mike ha don’t mind me looking forward to a Grammy or two one day for the young man. time to graduate from surfboards.

    Shanny Melinda was tweeting too. maybe the whole company was there?

  105. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hmmm…thats strange. At first it told me thank you for voting but then it started saying we have already counted your vote. So then I tried opening a brand new page each time, rather than refreshing, and it started out saying thank you for your vote but now it’s saying we’ve already counted your vote.
    So I can’t get my votes to count…. :roll: I’m trying guys… :shrug:

  106. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ok thanks Kim. So he must still be with her then.
    Notice when people are working with david, they tweet a lot about him but when they’re working with others, they don’t tweet so much?
    Must be because david fans are big twitterers.

  107. breanne says:

    Evening POWER VOTE is starting now!!!! We are still down 83,000 votes from our power vote from last night!!

  108. kimk says:

    Shanny they are.. David is tweet worthy!

  109. KCArchie says:

    haha. i must be the only one who doesn’t care about the super bowl today. i just want to talk about david archuleta, dang it! lol.

    there’s a poll? i think i submitted a vote. but i don’t really want to get too much into voting – it’s a very tedious, repetitive thing. thought i’d be done with that kind of stuff after season 7. :(

  110. sarahhazel says:

    I’m so dang tired & :( :cry:

  111. Mike says:

    No worry kim. I think everyone was just worn out from voting. But know for sure every fans of David are truly amazing and love him so much for who he is as a person and most of all believe in him for his amazing voice and remarkable talent that is rare. David will win grammy one day and I think he already surpass from surfboards. We just need to be patient, keep supporting and loving him. As for voting it would be nice if he win the award, if not at least we tried.

  112. nora says:

    Is there a PV tonight or has everybody given up?

  113. angelbymyside says:

    I’m voting

  114. Shanny in Australia says:

    Whats wrong Sarahhazel? Or if you don’t want to say, then here’s a ((hug)) anyway. :(

    Kim..Yep…david sure is tweet worthy!

    KCArchie…well considering i’m not American and not in america, or into baseball (or whatever sport the superbowl is) and today is just a normal Monday here…I’d rather just talk about david than watch the superbowl too! lol

  115. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ok, it’s counting my votes again. #Random.

  116. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I’m voting!!

  117. VaBeachArchie says:

    Home from work and STEPPING UP TO POWER VOTE! The man sure deserves to win!

  118. Candy says:

    Got to meet my two new grandkids today, hard to describe the feeling and the joy! Enjoy voting, Im doing the superbowl thing. BBL

  119. KCArchie says:

    haha. yeah, i’m not into sports either. all i would be interested in is if david would sing the national anthem. other than that, meh.

    eeep, i’m still super excited from the big news. can’t believe we’re getting another cd. david’s so good to us! :D

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

    Hello Everyone!

    Hey Ray, love ya & so glad you come here, love your comments. If you’re talking about me, wasnt complaining & I vote, just didnt care for a few words used, when asking us to vote, thats all, not meant to be a big deal :grin:

    Just woke up from a nap, must’ve been tired. Already to do some more voting. BBL

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend :grin:

  121. Candy says:

    To be honest, Im all for everyone doing there thing as far as the voting goes, just that it would be nice to sometimes talk about other things too.

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

    Candy, congrats on meeting the new Grandchildren, so happy for you :grin:

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

    If Breanne or anyone can answer my previous question, how many times can we tweet that sentence about the EL poll, can you use the same wording each time or do you have to include other words, like when we trend a certain phrase?

  124. Grannycrush says:

    Have to change it up a bit, Beth. Like put something at the end.

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

    Thanks Grannycrush :grin:

  126. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh so the superbowl is football and not baseball!?
    Oops :oops: :lol:

    Wow Candy! So neat about your new grandkids! How were they? Shy?

  127. Shanny in Australia says:

    KcArchie, i’ve played sports most of my life. Had the last few years off – just got busy with kids. Right now i’m trying to build up my running and get active again. I like watching some sports and will generally watch the ‘big’ games but popular American sports are not played or watched much over here. So yeah…give me some David to squee over!

    Haha, think I might need to go and find those david playing basketball vids again….

  128. Shanny in Australia says:

    How many never-heard-before songs are you all assuming will be on the CD?

  129. Shanny in Australia says:

    I’m hoping there will be at least 5 new songs. Preferably more cos I’m greedy.

  130. Candy says:

    Well, not only knocked the halftime show out out of the park, she knocked the power out too! #SheKilledIt Loved the DC reunion!!

  131. Candy says:

    Shanny-Not really shy, just wondering who we were. Finally Elias got it, he pointed to my daughter (his new mom) signed baby and then pointed to me. Then signed “grow up” It was priceless to see he got the connection. These are children who have never had a family and have no idea what a grandparent is.

  132. Shanny in Australia says:
  133. tami lyn says:

    jeff never e-mailed me back :(

  134. tami lyn says:

    that is so awesome candy!!!

  135. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, wow, incredible, kind of profound. Are they doing ok with the adjustment over all?
    Love love love the name Elias btw. If I ever get the blessing of having a boy, that’s what I want to name him.

    Guess you’re hubby might learn a few signs now? Or is it a case of can’t teach an old dog new tricks? lol

  136. Shanny in Australia says:

    Tamilyn – awww dang!
    ;-)

  137. nora says:

    Beth you use the same phrase over and over just add a different word at the end of each time like !actor or singer or a number like !01 or !02 and so forth.

    Have to leave EL poll to vote my last time on musquitone poll.
    Those LM fans are really nasty, feeling like punching them out.

  138. sarahhazel says:

    FINALS ENDS 11:30 TONIGHT! CAST YOUR 100 VOTES FOR DAVID! THANKS!
    http://musiqtone.com/music/thecount/musicvideomadness.php

  139. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nora – Lol!

  140. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ yeah :( i’m not good enough lol!

  141. Candy says:

    Lol Shanny-The old dog tries but its not as easy as one might think. The kids sing in Chinese, the rest of us (minus Hubby) sign in American sign language. Its a case of lets see who can get their point across the best, lots of gesturing and body language going on. The kids will eventually switch to ASL but it will take time.

  142. Candy says:

    Aww Tami-what does Jeff know anyway. David hung up on him! LOL

  143. jackryan4da says:

    For TWITER -

    you can twit as much as you like. Initially it was just one time. But halfway through the contest they changed it.

    SUGGESTION: Type the following phrase in the twitter’s search box,
    @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I Vote for DAVID ARCHULETA for FOREIGN ACT NEWSMAKER OF THE YEAR

    it should give you an idea what others are doing

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

    Thanks nora!

  145. jackryan4da says:

    Based on the poll daddy numbers + unupdated twitter entries from both camps, our lead is down to 20,000 only

  146. tami lyn says:

    true~lol! thanks candy :)

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

    Thanks to you to jackryan!

  148. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh wow, so many variables tbat a casual observer would never know or consider. Good on ya’ll. Please let us know how they’re getting on from time to time? :-)

    Tamilyn, maybe you should have included a picture of yourself wearing your glittery shoes? lol

  149. jackryan4da says:

    Oh and if you’re wondering where LMH is getting his votes now, the Chinese fans just stepped in this weekend. Hence the huge spike withe their votes.

    I hope that doesn’t deter us from trying to hold on to the top spot for David.

    Done with my break and Musiqtone voting. Back to EL voting (while working) hehe

  150. jackryan4da says:

    BTW, for those new to EL power voting

    TIP FOR EASIER VOTING:
    1. Minimize your screen (click “ALT” & “-” keys simultaneously) just so you can see the whole length of the voting area up until the line that says “Return to Poll”
    2. Since DA’s name is 1st on the list this makes it easy to click on his box
    3. Once done, click on the “Return to Poll” link so you could easily go back to the voting boxes in minimized format.

    Minimizing takes out the tedious task of scrolling and just leaves you with just 3 clicks to sent in a vote

  151. Shanny in Australia says:

    Btw, which Jeff are we talking about here? And when did David hang up on him?

  152. nora says:

    jackryan we can’t do it by ourselves if the Piony archies don’t help out when we are sleeping.

  153. OoO says:

    I’ll be here for the next 15 hrs minus meals time we will not stop until the skinny sings.

  154. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ yeah good idea, he does like the glamorous ladies! fenster! it’s in one of david’s songs! lol

  155. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, that 9:24pm comment of mine was to you.

    JR, thanks for all you do. Once again. :-)
    Also…do you know whats happening with the NA vids? Will you still be posting them somewhere or is there a problem preventing that?

  156. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy- Congratulations on your new grandchildren in your life. Your daughter and her husband must be really special people to open up their hearts to less fortunate children. Kids are great, they’ll adapt in no time. Good luck to you all.

  157. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ omg yeah i wish i had the other jeff’s e-mail!!! haha :)

  158. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ohhhh, ok. Yep, makes sense now. lol

  159. Shanny in Australia says:

    Thats right it’s coming back to me now….jeff said if people wanted feed back on their singing to email him – and you did.
    Aw, stink you haven’t had a reply. Good on ya anyway and keep on enjoying singing for those around ya Tamilyn. :-)

  160. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    jackryan4DA – How long are we going to vote? I stopped at about 9:15 p.m. est. If we are still PV I’ll continue. Taking a break now.

  161. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha! So do I Tamilyn! lol That would be fun!

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

    I tried to put more votes on musictone, but it wouldnt let me. How many hours between voting sessions is it. I’ve done it at least twice a day before.

  163. Candy says:

    Shany-it was Jeff Fenster, I still have a phone # (old account Im sure) in my phone for someone.

  164. jackryan4da says:

    Shanny – yes I will be posting the NA vids when I take my VL sometime this month.

    Am actually tempted to offer some freebies for this voting – just to make the tedious task more fun.

    Yah think offering HD version of NA or the whole DAJIM 2012 (8 disc collection of David’s 38 days in Manila) would do the trick?

  165. tami lyn says:

    thanks shanny! :) at least i know he listened to my song 3 times so that’s kind of a thrill in itself
    candy~omg u have the fenster’s phone number??! i wanna call him NOW hahaha!

  166. Shanny in Australia says:

    What! For the other J, Candy? Woot woot if so!
    How the heck did you ever get that and did you ever use it!? lol

  167. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- I looked at that video of David playing basketball in Delaware. Mr. SGJ and I are in that. Mr. SGJ is the man in the bottom first row holding a camera and I’m next to him holding a little poster I made up. It says, Rah, Rah, Rah, Archuletas. It said Archuleta at first but I added the s when I saw Lupe was playing too. The other side of the poster said , Your “MY Kind Of Perfect”. Love you David. I showed him both sides when I met him before the game. Then we said hello to Lupe and I thanked her for loaning us her son. It was a great day.

  168. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ok, code talk is not working for me lol. Which Jeff do you have a number for Candy?

    Tamilyn, how do you know fenster listened 3 times?

  169. Shanny in Australia says:

    JR! Ok give me more deets!? lol
    What do I have to agree to do to get those disks? lol And would it be a name in a hat kind of thing or is a guarantee to get them?
    Oh i’m shocking. But i’m interested! lol

  170. tami lyn says:

    cuz the song i linked to him was a christmas song and i don’t think anyone else would have been listening to that christmas song in the middle of january and it was right after i e-mailed it to him so i’m thinking and hoping it was him!

  171. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ who is the other J? justin bieber??? lol

  172. Shanny in Australia says:

    SGJ, ok, it’s a.bit fuzzy and choppy but I do see a man in a blue shirt holding a camera and a lady in a white jacket holding a yellow sign. Is that you?

  173. Shanny in Australia says:

    Tamilyn – thats cool!
    If he listened more than once he must have heard something he liked! You never know, he might just have been inundated and be taking a while to get to emailing you. Crossing fingers.

    As for the other J – Jeff Archuleta. Sheesh, we’re really not doing this code thing well tonight are we! lol

  174. Shanny in Australia says:

    JR, i’m not sure how you’d work it…but if you could come up with an enticing plan, I think it might encourage people to vote more.

  175. Candy says:

    Tami-Haha, wrong jeff! ;)

  176. tami lyn says:

    thanks shanny! :) that’s what i’m kinda secretly hoping too!

  177. Candy says:

    Shanny–never used it, but he did once :)

  178. tami lyn says:

    candy~ u have THEE jeff’s phone #??! now that’s exciting :)

  179. Candy says:

    Bwhahaahah the other J conversation took on a life of its own!

  180. Candy says:

    tami-Yep, but it was from longgggg ago, Im sure it isnt a number he uses anymore.

  181. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- Yep that’s us. It was in April, just a few months after my colon cancer surgery. I was so glad he came to that charity basketball game so I could see him again. He was as sweet as he could be as usual. Love that young man.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Gonna finish up my voting for the night
    and then get some sleep.

  183. tami lyn says:

    yeah probably not, but still!!!! lol

  184. Shanny in Australia says:

    OH. MY. GOODNESS!!
    Please tell me quick if I am getting my wires crossed because right now i’m thinking…Jeff Archuleta once called you Candy!?!?
    :shock: My mouth is hanging open right now!

    Haha, maybe we could use that phone number as an incentive to get people to vote!? lol
    Just kidding, just kidding. Would never betray confidentialities.

  185. jackryan4da says:

    SHANNY – am thinking…

    - the 1st XX # of Archies who put up 3K or 5k votes on Twitter get NA or DAJIM… I dunno.

    I thought of twitter cos that one I can monitor. For Poll Daddy, probably when we hit a million, we can raffle off the dvds, provided DA wins

    I know am being single-minded about this but, hey, a girl’s gotta do whata girl’s gotta do.

    Whatdyathink

  186. tami lyn says:

    what??! :)

  187. pocoelsy says:

    Hi there, Anyone still awake, at EL poll we are falling like a rock!!! need a lot more peeps to vote, if you have sometimes to spare please go there :) we are barely at 50% only a few thousands away from being overtaken by LMH !! see ya :)

  188. tami lyn says:

    oh now i’m thinking!~ if given the choice would i rather talk to jeff fenster or jeff archuleta???!!! :O

  189. tami lyn says:

    just totalled my food diary for today! 3225 calories !

  190. Shanny in Australia says:

    SGJ, thats so awesome! You know, most people look completely different in real life from how you imagine them to be but you look like I imagine you. Spunky grandma! :-) What a treat it must have been. I do remember your story of meeting them there. Very cool. :-) Didn’t david also stand up and give you a two armed hug?

    Nite, nite Bethy! :-)

    Candy….since it’s an old number, I think it’s only right that you ring it to check that it is indeed old and no longer needed. ;-) :lol:

  191. Candy says:

    Shanny-yep, he did, had to do with a gift I was giving David.

  192. Candy says:

    Ha Shanny- Never called it, nor was I tempted. But for some reason I still keep it, memories I guess

  193. tami lyn says:

    candy~ that is so cool!

  194. jackryan4da says:

    POCO – peeps are busy with either Musiqtone or the Superbowl.

    I am hopeful that we will recover after these two events… esp during this work week but for the weekend, we need to plan something huge

  195. VaBeachArchie says:

    Still on the vote…going really slow Wonder if it’s my computer or just me?

  196. I have been voting all day, will post on tweeter before i go to bed. Plan to vote until my eyes can’t stay open. Almost afraid to fall asleep because i have a feeling thats when they will overides us. But oh! well, we have come back from behind before we can do it again. I’m in this till the end.

  197. BACK TO VOTING, HAVE A GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

  198. tami lyn says:

    dang! now i’m thinking~would i rather MARRY jeff fenster or jeff archuleta??!! i’m gonna have weird dreams tonite! LOL!

  199. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    H E L L O- We are going down big time on polldady. S O S

  200. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- Yes, two armed hug Back to voting. :smile:

  201. KCArchie says:

    wait, what?

    okay then…well, i threw in another vote. is it the polldaddy poll the one that everyone’s talking about, or is there another one, too?

  202. Shanny in Australia says:

    Very cool SGJ. :-)

    Candy, lol….very cool too. If I had his number….i would fantasize and joke around about all the things I could ring up and say….but I wouldn’t do it. But still…fun just imagining it. :lol:

    Gotta go. My battery died already & I have just enough charge to post this probably.

    JR, i’ll try and get on the main computer this weekend and put in a few hours if that’s what you guys want. Just cos I love my Archies. Shame we can’t chat and vote at the same time.

    Take care peeps.

  203. Evening Everyone, before I get back to Polldaddy let me tell you how much I voted on that poll today. My son’s friend came over to watch the Superbowl game and I asked him…WHO ARE YOU VOTING FOR IN THE SUPERBOWL???

    Papa FOD, Happy Birthday !!! I hope you had a great day and lots of cheese cake!!!!

  204. Shanny in Australia says:

    JR…oh sorry, I missed yours and Poco’s comments.
    Those ideas sound like good possibilities. Of course i’m thinking my computer is slower than others and i’m sure there would be otbers with even slower connections than mine. Plus some are limited in their time compared to say the young ones. But I guess you’re never.going tobe able to make it 100% fair. (now i’m thinking of all those who’ve being voting hard out all along too) I think the fairest way would be to pull a name out if david wins but on the other hand, getting a prize for being the first to put in 5k votes might get more people involved because they might feel they have a better chance to win.
    Sorry if this is not very clear, i’m worried about my battery dying again.

  205. Shanny in Australia says:

    Idamae – lol! :-)

  206. breanne says:

    David is only ahead 42,000 votes on the EL poll. He was ahead 141,000 votes last night. I’m very frustrated because we have voted so hard!! Still voting but feeling a little bummed out!!

  207. Candy says:

    tami- its a nobrainer, if you married Jeff A…you would get to see David all the time up close and personal! Oh the things we talk about to amuse ourselves while David is gone!

  208. Candy says:

    Ida-Ha, I would say you have OCVD!

  209. cq#DA2014 says:

    My beloved 49ers made it an exciting superbowl, but they came up short, next year 9ers, still so proud.

  210. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth. I’m calling it a night too. Goodnight everyone. Voted as much as I could. I’ll start all over tomorrow and try to get in early votes in the morning. :smile:

  211. nora says:

    kcArchie you are not funny and nobody is laughing. It may not be important to you to vote but don’t make fun of us who think it is. JMO!!!!

  212. Ali says:

    wow, nora, i’m not sure what you’re talking about. the only thing i saw kcarchie ask was what poll everyone was voting on.

    i see this same pattern over and over again whenever we get involved in one of these endless voting contests. fans spend hours and hours and hours voting and get personally invested and lose perspective and start getting upset. that is the thing i hate the most about them and why i rarely vote in them anymore. i personally don’t care if there are 100 comments a day about them, fine. i have a scroll bar. but i don’t think there’s a need to be so defensive toward other fans.

  213. pocoelsy says:

    jackryan4da

    thank you for your words, calm me down haha I’ve been in panic mode since..IDK lol, you’re prolly right about Musiqtones and Superbowl saw a lot of tweets about it :)
    I love the word “plan” let me know, let me know what you all have in mind I’ll join in the mean time I will go for lunch brake and my daughter’s school, be back in a bit…hold the fort peeps , oh btw I couldn’t vote on Musiqtones since late this morning !!!dunno why.

    Happy Birthday PapaFOD :D

  214. OoO says:

    Did we get a result from MT yet?

  215. Candy says:

    The “V” word is starting to take on the same feel as the “R” Word.

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

    Hi everyone! It’s been a while but just popping in to say hello. It’s exciting to see the buzz about NMHF! Can’t wait!! :)

    Wow…this has definitely become a voting site. Sooo intense. No thanks! Where’s all the silliness and fun? I may have to pull out my crazy card… ;)

    tami lyn – Hi! Congrats on your Pad Thai! :)

    Have a great night all. Good night! :)

    candy – lol. well it’s 2013. v is the new r. ;)

  218. ksf says:

    LOL. I’d forgotten about Juicy Jubilee. It keeps coming back even after I erase it.

  219. Candy says:

    Ali-LOL so you mean the R word is Soooo 2012 :)

  220. ksf says:

    Wow…um…I think I just had a bout of smiley OCD. Lol.

  221. nora says:

    Ali I guess you have a right to your opinion and I have a right to mine.

  222. nora says:

    By the way can’t KCArchie defend herself?

  223. Candy says:

    Ive said it before and will say it again…I so respect everyone that is voting their fingers off…and trust me I have in the past. Please try to understand that not everyone has the time right now or desire to join in. At times it is feeling very unwelcoming and intense, nothing other then voting is talked about. I admire those that are so dedicated, but for now my time and effort is in other areas…writing to the little girl I sponsor in India through the Rising Star Outreach, the girls I will host for a state-wide conference and the new grandchildren that have just come into my life today.

  224. ksf says:

    New thread folks! Can we leave the V-word behind?

  225. Candy says:

    at the end of the day…we’re all here for the same reason… we love and admire David.

  226. ksf says:

    Candy – ITA. Congratulations on your new grandbabies! :)

    I have no excuse. I don’t *ote because I don’t want to.

  227. Ali says:

    sheesh, why should kcarchie have to “defend” herself? why was she accused in the first place?

    i’m all about leaving this in this thread. i said before, i have no problem with those who vote. it’s admirable, the amount of time that’s put in and how much you obviously care about david. but not everyone chooses to show their support in the same way and there’s no need to get defensive. we’re all different.

    hopefully we can move on to tomorrow’s post and start a new week with this behind us.

    Hi sarahhazel I have said before. This is a surprise. when they are worked up, We have a big chance to win. Now we just give away. Thanks to all of us for voting.
    Remember Archie said if you very want something you have to work hard for. All the best.

  229. nora says:

    Ali and KCArchie I am so sorry for coming off the way I did there was no excuse for it, so I won’t try to make one, just accept my apologies, It was totally uncalled for. I will try to do what I do an not expect all to follow. Again I’m really sorry.

  230. Ali says:

    nora <33333 we're all in this fan thing together! thanks for doing all you do :)

    off to the new thread — the top pic is definitely a great way to start off a new week!

    As I read the reviews of the Star Spangled Banner performance at the Super Bowl in New Orleans last night I couldn’t help but be reminded of the awesome renditions by David Archuleta. The criticisms of this awful, over-sung, nightclub act version we were subjected to on Sunday are so in contrast to the electrifying purity of David’s performances. I think it is essential that people hear David sing the national anthem the way it is supposed to be sung. I vote for a DA Star Spangled Banner at the first Super Bowl that he is available.
