S P O I L E R!

Not everyone will have received a CD directly yet, and may not have downloaded No Matter How Far through iTunes yet.  If you want to wait to see and hear notables from the CD, scan to the bottom of this post in order to bypass the pics were are about to post!

Okay, warning over :)

* * * * * *

 ”This is my thanks to you, for everything in the past, present and future.”   

Those words are from David Archuleta, talking to his fans, in his liner notes from No Matter How Far digital booklet.  There is more of this wonderful sentiment, but posting only snippets doesn’t do the liner notes justice.  

For now, this simple thank you will have to do.

So it’s our job, as fans, to say thanks back to David by enjoying the CD he so lovingly prepared, and sharing so others can enjoy this gift too.  A few ideas are mentioned in my post to help promote this CD to others.  But first and foremost, simply enjoy it :)

* * * * *

It’s here and it’s making everyone take notice!

Okay, this is really a spoiler now!  No fooling.  No kidding.  Hide your eyes (tho I’m not sure why you’d want to):

All images from the digital booklet for No Matter How Far and you can also find originals on the Official David Archuleta

“It’s Downloading”

The sound heard all over the fan-world last night!

Here’s what Lisa @txarchie captured!

* * * * *

Stream stream stream!

Streaming is important!  It shows industry folks that people are so interested in the music, that they are listening to it on their site.  Keep a few windows open to do it!

Bookmark these links and stream as continuously as you can!

Aol Music

And Billboard!  I still love what they have on their site.  MUST READ!

Before leaving (on a Mission), Archuleta recorded a number of songs that were never placed on an official album — some unfinished demos, others hard-to-find cuts that had only been shared on international releases. Thanks to his dedicated fanbase, many of these tracks were shared online, catching the eye of the label Entertainment One, who decided to compile them into a proper album: “No Matter How Far.”

The album’s lead single, string-laced sentimental ballad “Don’t Run Away,” is one of two selections (along with “Heart Falls Out”) that has not previously been released in any format. With help from British producers The Nexus (David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein), the incomplete demo was polished into one of Archuleta’s finest moments.

And Vevo!

BTW, as tweeted by Kari yesterday, here is the banner on Vevo’s site yesterday.  Very cool!

* * * *

iTunes has David’s number!!!

Martha captured the banner last night.  Kari, did you have something to do with David and Crystal Bowersox side by side there lol?

TOP 10 POP!!!

In US pop, here’s what you see!  Thanks Carlen for capturing this!  And David’s Album wass #13 on the top Pop Albums…woohoo!

And on the US Home Page! Again, thanks to Carlen.  There is another guy wearing plaid just above David.  See that?  (more on that later)

And as of 8 am EDT today, David’s CD was No 51!  We can get that higher!

In Canada, here’s what you see in the Pop page.  New and Noteworthy!  Yes.  And definitely Yes!

We’ll update you as David climbs up the charts!

Don’t Run Away Music Video buzz

Lots of excitement around the new music video yesterday.  And Martha reported that

DRA MV has 60,685 views in a little over 24 hours! Wow!

Here are but a few of the links announcing the news:

(not sure about the Peru part from MJ, but who knows!)

* * * * *  

More about the Don’t Run Away Music Video

Sooooo much buzzzz about that animated video from Kylie Malchus.   Here’s an article from Mark Franklin of Idol Chatter

Click on the picture to read the rest of the article.  Leave a comment if  you can!

Kylie released her video yesterday describing the process of being selected to create the music video, consulting with David and Kari, and the volume of pictures required to produce the music video.  Loved Kylie’s explanations and poise with the camera1

Kalei mentioned that she had to make a David-costume-change.  Why?  Kylie answered Lisa:

Credit: DavidArchuletaVN

I’m wondering if David had visions of this type of music video when he was thinking about animations here??  Remember this Ford commercial?

He knows a thing or two about animations!

The full music Ford video below.

I love this behind the scenes video too. David was asked to create “intensity in his eyes”. Huh, no acting required there.

* * * * *

The Plaid has it

See?  Even in that vid above, David had the plaid thing going on.  I am so loving it tho.

Suits David.

But as I mentioned up above, even Blake Sheldon is rocking the plaid, in the same iTunes screencap.

And I assume Kari was last night too!

I still love these!  Bring them back Team Archuleta!

Credit: My daughter :)

And here is a screencap of Maureen’s Pinterest Board entitled Mad for Plaid (and tartan).  If you are on Pinterest, you must follow her boards!  Amazing!

Okay, I got a bit off-track there.

No Matter How Far Gifting

Credit: Janel, Wal-Mart in Lindon, Utah

As you can well imagine, now that the CD has landed, new requests have started to come in.  If you have any extras please let us know and we’ll put you on the list as a donor.

For those who have been notified that we have a donor for you, please be patient regarding the CD as many donors have not received their shipments yet, and international mail takes time.

And for others still waiting to hear from us, we’ll notify by the end of the day today.

Thanks to all of you for your support and patience!

* * * * *

Tons of stuff going on.  This was supposed to be my light post so I’m leaving a few cool things for Joanie (who is back!) tomorrow.  And something new coming your way :)

It’s a a great great day to be a David Archuleta fan, isn’t it?

    Deseret Book‏@DeseretBook2h
    @nellie1983 Ok. Thanks! It had a strict date of hitting shelves today & should have a lot of copies in that store.
    Janel Woodbury ‏@Nellie19831h
    @DeseretBook there are two places where CDs are in that store, not on either shelf. No special displays either in the center or at register
    @DeseretBook but possible they hadn’t got it out on the shelves yet, I didn’t ask. Went in at 9:45 AM
    Deseret Book‏@DeseretBook1h
    @nellie1983 Gotcha..they probably had not filled the shelves yet. Thank you!!

I love the message in the liner notes. David is adorable.Pastel super-duper post. Loved the Ford commercial video. So much Buzz. This is wonderful. I’m so happy for David and his team. How they planned all of this boggles my brain. Glad for what we got!! :grin:

  77. Oinkiers says:

    RUSS, hint it is sqaure with something round in it and it is loud when in the car!!! And the cover of the sqaure thing is pretty good looking ;)

  78. Oinkiers says:

    Beth- AWESOME!!!

  79. Nicole says:

    just tried to download cd on iTunes and it won’t let me!

  80. Russ says:

    Thanks Candy and Oinkiers. We all have been waiting way too long for this CD. I really love the music video for Don’t Run Away. David is no longer the kid from AI, he is the man behind the voice.
    Beth, I hope WalMart has more than 3 copies, I need 3.

  81. Beth, i wish i live around big stores but i don’t will have to wait till i go out of town.
    I bet he looks purty sitting on a shelf.

  82. Anne-Marie says:

    Beth- I found 3 at my Walmart too. I bought 1! :)

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

    Hey Linda! Do you want me to send a cd to you, my treat :grin:

    AnneMarie, Way to go!

    Thanks Oinkiers!

  84. Oinkiers says:

    Beth- Wilbur and the chickettes are clapping and saying awwww….. they love your offer to Linda!! :D

  85. sarahhazel says:

    Anne-marie, Beth–I see you had your NMHF hunt adventures, too! Exciting, huh??!!! :)

  86. Beth, Bless your heart! I have 2 already, i will be getting 2 more Fri.
    Thank you for your offer. I want to buy some when i go out of town so that can gift a couple too. Thank you very much.

    Hello everyone :)

    Pastel ~ LOVE the post today! Thank you and all the mods for your wonderful work each and every day!

    Got home from work and my CD was waiting for me. I could barely read the liner notes through the tears! David is truly an exceptional man! His heart is over-flowing with love! So happy and proud to be his fan!

    Didn’t get a chance to check out any of the stores yet, can’t wait to see the CD sitting pretty on the shelf!

    Pastel ~ LOL you put up my “Mad for Plaid” Pinterest board. My “plaid” board wouldn’t be complete without pics of David ;)

  98. Shanny in Australia says:

    Good morning peeps..or good afternoon, good evening. :-)
    Had to squeeze my eyes nearly closed and scroll fast to miss all the spoilers on todays post. lol
    But not before noticing we had a new colour theme and new pic and banner. lol Me likey. Actually that old pic in the banner was not my favourite – too feminine.

    Kylie – our video artist left a message at the end of the previous thread after the thread changed in case anyone missed it and wanted to read. It kinda relates to a discussion there so thought i’d leave it there but…just a heads up. :-)

    Busy day ahead but will try to catch up on today’s comments. I’m surprised how well this CD is doing! Good stuff! :-)

  99. angelbymyside says:

    Forgot to say I LOVE THE NEW BANNER :D

  100. Oinkiers says:

    Hi Shanny!!

  101. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Love the new banner!!! :D

    I went to walmart earlier to check whether or not they had No Matter How Far. They had 3 copies left..So I bought all 3. lol :lol:

  102. My radio station played Don’t Run Away today.
    I also gifted my DJ the whole album from itunes.
    e-mailed him a rundown on most played songs,
    Praying i will hear them on the radio one day. PRAYING!!

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

    Hey Shanny! Are you off your rocker, lol, that Begin pic was fantastic. I’m concerned about your recognizing great pics of David capabilities :lol:

    Hey abms!

  104. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol…judging by all the reactions to the liner notes….maybe david didn’t need to leave new music after all….maybe all he needed to do was write up some liner notes and distribute them every few months. ”Love letters from David”. :-)

  105. Shanny sounds good to me. Liners works for me!

  106. sarahhazel says:

    Joy–awesome!…hope they re-stock!

  107. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi ya Oinkiers! *waving* :-)
    Beth….lol….between the fluffy hair and the pose….wasn’t my thing….but if I remember correctly, there was still the eye freckle wasn’t there? Always like the eye/cheek freckles to not be airbrushed out. Uniquely David. :-)

  108. Amanda Jane says:

    Hey guys! Been far too long since I posted!

    Happy album release day :) . I can’t get over HFO. I mean…whoa.

    And yes, the liner notes…just when you think he can’t get any better…he does.

  128. potluck8 says:

    I went to my walmart today but I wasn’t surprised that they didn’y have it. To tell you the truth I don’t really like my walmart, it used to be much better but something has happened to it. I am going to order on line.

  129. Anita says:

    Happy Album Release Day Everyone!! I got a slip from UPS today. They came and I wasn’t home! DARNIT!! So they’ll come back tomorrow, but of course I won’t be home again either. I’ll have to stop at my post office on Thursday to pick it up. That’s just too dang long! I stopped at Walmart, but they didn’t have one single copy of NMHF. BOOOOOO!!!!!

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

    kim, I bet its a happy tired :grin: Hawaii, I’d almost get in a plane to go to Hawaii :grin: Do you mean when they go on vacation, they’re/you arent moving there, are ya???

    Hello Miss Vicki! lol, love the plaid, huh? :grin:

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

    potluck8 & Anita, what a bummer.

    potluck, Best Buy seems to be pretty quick to fill their online orders.

  132. Amanda Jane says:

    My Walmart had NMHF today, but I was very surprised. They had TOSOD, but maybe just for a week or two and I didn’t see it again for a while…

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  134. Anita says:

    Beth-It sure is! I love all the talk about David’s liner notes. He’s just the BEST!!! I skipped over the album pics, because I want to be surprised when I get that turquoise and red CD in my hands!

  135. Miss Vicki DA@2014 says:

    Hey potluck….the Walmart near me never had BEGIN….but the Barnes and Noble did….try there…..Interesting that the changes in clothes had to do with changing David from a shirt and vest to a T-shirt….I would have thought the girl was in a mini skirt or short shorts and he had requested a longer dress….he he he….Miss Vicki

  136. Candy says:

    Hmmm My cd was in NJ last Saturday, then was shipped to NC by mistake, then back to Philly which is where it is now!! Really??? Best Buy

  137. Candy says:

    bds-me thinks Elder Hoff is jealous of Elder Porkchop!!

  138. Anne-Marie says:

    Just read that missionary blog…looks like someone’s feathers have been ruffled! lol!

  139. Candy says:

    Anne-Marie-just a tad, his jealousy is showing!!

  140. Anita, I’m with you…Happy Album Release Day, Everyone!!! I hope you get your hands on that sweet gem s**n :) GOOD LUCK!!!

    I headed to my local Walmart today and went straight to the new CD releases and was so disappointed not to find NMHF. I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a single copy in all of the new releases. I was ready to leave when something told me to check through the pop section and there it was …1 copy of NMHF!!!! I had to unload on anyone who’d listen. I found a worker and told him the situation. He got the manager and I just had to tell him, “How would anyone find it in the pop section if it’s a new release?” He gave me his # to check on how many they’ll be getting in next week. They really don’t stock them :( It was like this for Begin.

    The liner notes are pure David and they come across a bit nostalgic in a way and I can understand it cuz that’s how we’re feeling, too. I love the superlatives in spanish…”Thank-you so so much” and he ends it with “See you S**N” LOL

    Pastel, muchisimas gracias for the fab post and job that you and the other mods do on this wonderful site for David and his fans!!!!

  141. Anne-Marie says:

    Candy- Did you read his blog that came before the last one? Yep…someone is definitely jealous!

  142. Candy says:

    Anne-Marie- Yep, his feathers were starting to get ruffled in that one, now he is seriously bent out of shape!

  143. Fiona says:

    Hi everyone! Happy NMHF day!
    I finally got to a Walmart in Baton Rouge at 5 pm today and there was only ONE NMHF CD left!!!!!!! Needless to say, I snatched it off the shelf ;) Also, it wasn’t with the new releases, I had to go and look under Archuleta and then found it with one BEGIN.
    Oh well, more coming in the mail! :)

  144. Fiona says:

    Idamae, your story sounds just like mine! What is WRONG with these people??!

  145. Anne-Marie says:

    Candy- I laughed at the “pitch” statement. Seriously?? lol.

  146. Candy says:

    Ida & Fiona-Im going to venture out tmw, there better be some NMHF cd’s on the shelves or the “Boys” are going to get a call.

  147. Fiona, HAHA…looks like I was shopping in LA by you or vis versa :)

  148. Anne-Marie, don’t forget the AKA …hmmm…

  149. bds says:

    Candy – Me thinks he is jealous of the other Piano Player too. Must be the Missionary who has played for him before, Elder C.

  150. Fiona, is yours coming from Amazon. Just wanted to see how close the similarities are running :)

  151. Candy says:

    bds-Im thinking you are right, its Elder C.

  152. Fiona says:

    Idamae yes, amazon, bb & Walmart. Com!

  153. Fiona says:

    Candy, haha I hope so!

  154. Candy, what’s the prob with supplying more than 1 cd per store, I don’t get it. Yes, “the boys”, by all means haha.

  155. cvarchfan says:

    Janel, thank you so much for letting me crash the fan dinner tonight! How lucky for me that I happened to be in SLC on release day, I know how much work you put in to make the games and prizes. It was nice meeting you and others, and sharing some interesting David stories. Thanks again, Trish

  156. connie-fod4ever says:

    Thanks Pastel for the nice post today and happy NO MATTER HOW FAR release day to all Archies. David is so handsome in his plaid shirt. Love it.
    Still waiting for my cd from Amazon which is expected to be delivered April 1 or 2.
    Meanwhile, I compiled my own NMHF songs from my itunes song lists which is in the album. I have to download 4 songs from itunes i.e. Nothing Else Better To Do, Heart Falls Out, Love Don’t Hate and Notice Me to complete my own NMHF cd album and I can listen to it on my way to work tomorrow. My fave songs are NEBTD, EAM, HFO, & DRA.
    Thanks FOD for all the nice post everyday. :) :)

  157. Janel aka Nellie says:

    It was so nice to see you Trish and I’m glad you were able to join us. Have a safe flight back home! :) . We sure had fun laughing didn’t we?

  158. cvarchfan, how wonderful that you were able to attend Janel’s fan dinner and it sounds like you had a great time! Janel is a super hostess!

  159. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha oh boy is IT GOOD TO BE HOME!!
    the green eyed monster is peaking his little head out I see!!

    finally downloaded NMHF!!!
    can’t wait to get my physical copies too.. think tomorrow!

    Thanks to Janel for planning the great dinner. Thanks to all that shared their food with me since I forgot my purse at home. I did remember the big poster of David. That was really more important than my purse. It was so fun to see everyone. We sure are a diverse group.

  164. Kimberly Ann says:

    idamae ha rest.. what is that!!??
    boy I miss them already!!

  165. cvarchfan says:

    Idamae, yes, Janel is a super hostess! I’m so glad I attended and met so many new Archie fans! My life was enriched seeing old friends and making new ones this week.

  166. Kimberly Ann says:

    My boyfriend is the best! We went to Walmart & no luck finding @DavidArchie’s album and now he texted me saying best buy has it.

    I might give Best Buy a try.. my Walmart doesn’t usually carry his stuff.
    did order three.. but hope I can buy one in the store!!

    ha happy to see folks.. are still funny where David is concerned!! :0

  169. dailylurker says:

    Woohoo on NMHF!!!!!!!!!! :) LOLs at the miss blog above! Anyway I was thinking about David even more today after watching The Voice and seeing JPL from season 3 of idol on it. He is in a duo call Midas Whale, lols. JPL was speaking Spanish to Shakira and I remember that he is also Mormon and he went on a mission in Spain. That is where he learn to speak Spanish fluently. Everything reminds me of David pretty much. Can’t wait till David is back speaking fluent Spanish and killing us with his voice again. :)

    By the way I LOVE the new music video! Gotta start saving for the comeback tour.

  170. Kim, The lyrics in HFO are clever and inventive. BTW, I noticed the same team that wrote Look Around wrote HFO that’s Squire, Lady V and of course, DA.

  171. Kimberly Ann says:

    hey Monday will be APRIL 1!!!!

    THAT IS COUNTDOWN TO THE MAN’S RETURN DAY!!
    THE BEGINNING OF THE END TO ALL THIS MADNESS!!!

    lol off to bet folks.. see you all in the morning!!!!
    missed you guys to bits!!

  172. Kimberly Ann says:

    haven’t seen a hard copy of NMHF yet.. what happened to the crouching David pics!!???

  173. dailylurker, I don’t know why but now that you mention it, when he started to talk to Shakira in Span and said he had been to Spain I thought of David and thought that the guy may be mormon :)

  174. Wow, look at the time…nite all!!!

  175. No, Kim :( hope there’s plans for it in the near future :)

  176. jeani/ut says:

    Banner is awesome.

  177. Jhen says:

    David running in Don’t run away MV reminds me of Josh running at beach trying to save Anya from drunk man, maybe the running sketch inspired from that scene. Haven’t receive my NMHF album yet, it’s take time I guess in Asia.

  178. joujou says:

    Thanks for posting elder Hoffs blog. I enjoyed it. Seems like a funny kid. He mentions d in about 4 posts. One thing that I enjoy about his blog is his discriprion of the culture down there. Particularly about how the people down there kiss their faces. Lol. Oh I can only imagine how d handled that.

  179. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

    So many GREAT comments and stories about NMHF! Hope all will have theirs real soon…what a TREAT! The music , the pics and the liner notes…AMAZING! Have to get my gifting copies in the mail….sent emails to all that theirs will be coming!

    Hoping for some vids of the Easter Devotional….really do miss seeing David sing! The Christmas ones were SO BEAUTIFUL!

    Off to vote then Nana patrol! ENJOY YOUR DAY AND NMHF! :) :)

  183. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Good morning, the sun is shining, the tank is clean and we are getting out of here……ahhhhhh the tank is clean! Curse you AquaScum! Sorry, channeling my inner Nemo!
    I was asked to do a write up for the fan dinner to send in to FOD. I’m relying on others who were there too because I didn’t take a lot of pics. So, anyone who sees this and wants to, send your pics and story to FOD and they can kind of combine our stories and pics.

  184. Candy says:

    Welcome Home Kim-I guess he figured it was safe to mention where he was as fans havent stalked him in Chile. Actually not one person has made the trip, or bothered him in any way. Probably more to his surprise then ours! Most have gone about their business as they were asked to do.

  185. Candy says:

    Hi Janel -sounds like your get-together was a huge success, congrats to you! Meeting up with David friends is one of the things I miss the most!

  186. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey guys.
    Love,.love,.love Kari’s tweet about FOD! lol
    Hi Kari! *waving* lol

    All these little bits slipping out about the liner notes. I want to wait to enjoy everything in all it’s glory when I’m holding the album in my hands…but…I’m loving all the little teeny tiny tidbits people have shared. :-) ohhhhh can’t wait, can’t wait!
    Fun listening to everyone sharing their experiences of finding or not finding the album in their letterboxes/local walmarts too. :-)

  187. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, folks!!!
    Me too also thinks one elder is jelly….haha….”perfect pitch”….LOL
    Janel–looking forward to the dinner recap and pics. :)

  190. Shanny in Australia says:

    Janel – tank cleaning….?? Early in the morning…?
    Have you got a dirty fish tank that you just cleaned at the crack of dawn after a night out spazzing with the Archies? lol

    Good morning to all you early morning risers. :-)

    Miss Vicki – ahhhhh enjoy! Sounds like the perfect day to start the week.
    Olemr2001 – wow! Thats almost crazy!

    Candy – so we know he wrote the liner notes while out on his mission then. Makes it sweeter. :-)

  191. sarahhazel says:

    A few more days before the Easter devotional! :)

  192. Shanny in Australia says:

    ”perfect day to start the week”

    Strike that. I know we’re in different time zones but it’s not THAT different.

    I meant…’perfect way to start the day’. lol

  193. sarahhazel says:

    FlyFM won’t let me vote….blank page. :mad:

  194. sarahhazel says:

    Listening to my CD now! Feels really good! :D

  195. Shanny in Australia says:

    Huh, yeah that Elder’s got a ‘raw’ way of talking. Don’t think his intentions are bad but he sure could do with learning to consider all the ways his words could be misinterpreted. And yep, think he’s a little green…but if he’s been kicked out like he indicates…i can understand him being hurt, angry, disappointed about that. Hopefully he learns over the course of his mission. Life is happier when you’re not busy harbouring resentment.

    Sarah, no don’t own any fish, just channeling my inner nemo like I said. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, what do we do we swim, swim, ’cause when we WAAAAAANNNNT to swim……
    Just in a good mood that’s all. Had fun last night, cookies are finally done, going to lunch with a friend today whom I haven’t seen since before I was married. Fun, fun!

  197. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny he just sounds like a regular guy to me.. venting. David is the exception.

  198. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–LOL…I love Nemo and swimming….have a fun-filled day!

  199. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – woot woot! Whats your favourite at the moment?

    Janel – lol – are you singing a song now? lol No, don’t answer that…what I DO understand is that you’re happy and that’s a good thing and all I need to understand. lolol

    Kim – wow, Hawaii with the grandies would be fun. Glad you had a great time and got home safely too. :-)

  200. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–”David is the exception.” :) :D

  201. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–HFO on top, followed by NEBTD, DRA & NM.

  202. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I’m sure david vents sometimes – just chooses wisely. Maybe why he also took to journal writing so much. Can be very cathartic.

    Actually…i think TOSOD and Begin contain a lot of David’s ‘venting’ about one thing and another. Which I like. Want to know the whole him.

  203. nora says:

    sarahhazel I have been trying all morning to vote on FLY FM but would not let me on the site, David is #9, not fair we could not vote, What is up with that? Just let me on now, too little to late.

  204. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – I think i’m going to have to write up an ‘Archie-app’ that deciphers all the acronyms. lol
    HFO sounds very promising indeed. I really like Notice Me. Speaking from previously obviously as I haven’t heard any of the songs on this album yet.

  205. Candy says:

    sarah-rumor on twitter is that unless someone follows you, you wont be able to see there tweets, that would kill updates from Kari. Hoping its not true.

  206. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–really??? except for HFO, the rest of them have been in YT for a while now.

  207. Shanny in Australia says:

    hmmm…david’s TEAM is tweeting today about Crystal B from his twitter account. Gina Orr also manages David and Crystal doesn’t she? Maybe ‘David’s team’ on twitter is Gina?

  208. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–thanks for answering that.

  209. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel, when I suspected there would be only a few ‘new’ songs I decided to avoid listening to any of the new stuff. Of course i’ve.heard and sung along many times to all the old material. Hence why I can say I like Notice Me without having listened to this album.

  210. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–oh, that’s what you meant….got me confused there….haha….

  211. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel, just saw your story about seeing the missionaries at walmart. It made me think…if any of you see missionaries, if you feel ok about it, you should tell them you are a fan of David Archuletas and he is on a mission in Chile at the moment and you’re waiting for him to return. I think they would appreciate hearing that and it would be a tick for David Archuleta in their minds. Subliminaly advertising our guy! ;-)

  212. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–I’m too shy to do that….LOL

  213. Shanny in Australia says:

    I’m glad Walmart tweeted about NMHF. Goes to show they see the excitement over them carrying his music and hopefully increases their desire to stock D’s music in the future.

  214. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–maybe if they get a lot of requests….they will put more…..let’s hope so!

  215. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel…lol…I’m LDS obviously and I know what you mean…they’re still strangers after all. lol There have been times when i’ve felt a little shy too. But that doesn’t stop us from beeping and waving like crazy loons whenever we drive past some mish’s walking along. lol

  216. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–yup, it’s David’s fault we do these kinda things. ;)

  217. sarahhazel says:

    Time for the mundane…..BBL

  218. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – lol…or maybe it’s a matter of like attracts like. Or in other words, loonies attract other loonies. ;-)

    Well enjoy your mundane if you can….as for me, I’m ready for a snoozefest.

    Take care all. :-)

    6) Lack of compelling contestants. The women this year are truly talented. All five of them are good to great. But the guys, while some can sing competently, are Lunesta in the personality department. There isn’t a quirky Casey Abrams type or gutsy Adam Lambert in the mix. Nobody is bringing in the types of fervent fans that, say, David Archuleta did. “Idol” kept Zoanette Johnson around as long as they could because she has a crazy personality but ultimately, too unhinged on the singing side.
