Leavitt Wells posted another David concert pic on IG – so there are definitely multiple photos involved in that photo shoot! We’ll keep watching for more!  Leavitt gives David a run for his money when it comes to hashtags lol 😀 Screen Shot 2017-03-21 at 7.44.57 PM *  *  *  *  * 62e074822741546c050773034d60b13a *  *  *  *  *

We know that David is the King of content – the music is perfection and it seems like it’s wrapped and ready to go! Now we just need a Queen of Promotion to get it out to adoring fans all over the world!

Jacquelyn Marushka is President of Marushka Media, a boutique PR and Management agency she established in May of 2016 specializing in results-driven, custom brand development, strategic story placement, image consulting and media coaching.

Prior to starting her own business, Jacquelyn launched and led Shore Fire Media’s Nashville office as its General Manager (2013-2016). She created and executed career-advancing campaigns for clients including Brandy Clark, Angaleena Presley, Lee Brice, Aaron Watson, The Americana Music Association and was lead media coach during the 2015 MIDEM conference in Cannes.

Before her term at Shore Fire, she directed corporate, artist and album publicity for Sony Music Entertainment’s Provident Label Group as Vice President of Public Relations. She was responsible for all aspects of PR including story development, imaging, budgets and overall PR campaign execution for artists on five record labels as well as the company’s publishing, distribution and film divisions.

Jacquelyn is a 2004 Leadership Music alum and a member of The Recording Academy, Americana Music Association, Gospel Music Association, SOURCE, CMA, ACM and A2iM and also serves on the boards of Small World Yoga and the Music City Yoga Festival.

As a small business owner she understands hard work but has also mastered the art of life-balance and invests in her community by volunteer teaching Yoga, Pilates and meditation to at-risk youth and non-profit community groups in and around Nashville.

Jacquelyn is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of The University of New Mexico and holds teaching certifications in Power Vinyasa Yoga (Epic Yoga/Baptiste Yoga) and Classical Pilates through the prestigious Power Pilates system.

Jacquelyn has a series of blogs on her site that give you a peek into who she is and what’s important to her. One of her blogs is titled“The Most Important Question You’ll Ever Ask Yourself: What Makes Me Happy?” here’s a segment from the blog:

Do you want to change your circumstances? Do you want a better life? Look deep into your heart and ask: What makes me happy? What makes my heart jump out of my chest? What would I do if I knew I couldn’t fail?

I’m thinking David read this blog before he enlisted Jacquelyn’s services – that he saw much of himself there in her words, and he may have felt he had found a kindred spirit… Finally! His kind of perfect PR Person – but he thought to himself, there’s just one more thing – and it’s a deal breaker – Can she jump?

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child – she’s got THAT covered too!

Queen Creek Memories!

Shelley posted this pic taken at Queen Creek last year! Time has really flown by – that was a whole year ago! There were many memorable performances including his amazing renditions of Don’t Run Away. He poured out his emotions and left them on the stage.

Love this full body vid – even though it’s a snippet, it’s the BEST part of the performance! You can see his hunker down and all the hand motions! I was sitting next to Angela when she filmed this!

This next vid is a little shaky, but it’s the full song and captures the pure emotion of his performance. The audio is great!

This next vid is from Shelley – so you know it’s fabulous! This is from the 3/26/16 performance – some subtle differences, but still AMAZING!

So big news for the Archuleta!  A professional PR Firm to promote David and his new music! I’m hoping for TV ads and invites to sing on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke! In fact, I’d settle for a few tweets and an IG Story from The Man!

Come on Marushka Media – we’re counting on you!

We're READY!!

We’re READY!!

Spring Has Sprung! 

150324100047_xS1Cna_tavaszi_zene_2Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring! Many fans welcomed the warmer weather and celebrated this season of new things  – when new plants start pushing up through the rich earth, flower buds burst into bloom, animals welcome cute new babies into the world and we await NEW MUSIC! Now what says “Spring Is Here” more than David wandering through a flower shop surrounded by lovely spring flowers singing his signature  love song Crush and picking out pretty (though random) flowers to make a beautiful bouquet – maybe for a sweet gal? David_Archuleta-flowers david-pepsi-smash-on-location-performance-21   Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 9.19.20 PM hqdefault These screen caps were taken from the Pepsi Smash video of Crush – it’s still rather awkward that he’s walking through the shop singing Crush and selecting various blooms to make a bouquet, all the while wearing a headpiece mic lol – who does that? Also, it still appears that he leaves the shop without paying for the flowers! Maybe he pre-paid using the Flowers-R-Us app! 😀 Crush – Pepsi Smash (credit: 24HourFlowersTV) *  *  *  *  *

Tick-Tock Tuesday

It’s been a long month, and the tick, tick, tick of the clock reminds us that time is indeed passing, albeit verrrrrrrry slowly for impatient fans waiting for new music! Hey David! We know you know we’re waiting, and we’re trying really, really hard to be patient! Kari promised us that a storm is coming, and we’re READY! Every day feels like it has 25 hours! We know you have a collection of watches, so surely you know the time is drawing near for you to debut your new music!

- Turquoise watch from NMHF

- AAGGHH we're going crazy!

– AAGGHH we’re going crazy!

- Ok, we know you're Workin' on it!

– Ok, we know you’re Workin’ on it!

Of course this is all in good fun, and we know that David is putting his heart and soul into this new album – and it will be ready… when it’s ready.  You can’t rush perfection! Whenever I find myself feeling anxious, or getting impatient, I remember David’s song Who I Am – how taking time is important to him – I also remember, that like the lyrics from You Can, “…good things come to those who wait”. Who I Am (Credit: ShellyFOD) So David, take all the time you need to make this album everything you want it to be – we know it will be a reflection of who you are now, and also a large part of who you have always been – an amazing artist whose music touches our hearts and inspires us to always be true to ourselves, no matter how long it takes. *  *  *  *  *

  1. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! A TERRIFIC Tuesday to all! 🙂

    Thanks Kalei for the Tick-Tock Tuesday post filled with so many ARCHUGOOFIES! And YES, will this be the week? FABULOUS pic by Leavitt Wells! So many AWESOME pics and fan art! Archies are a TALENTED bunch!:)

    FUNNY, this wait for the new album, has been longer then his mission! Hoping we’ok hear something, ANYTHING this week! The sound of silence……

    Nana patrol! On COUNTDOWN to my sister coming! Hear that David, a COUNTDOWN to the new single RELEASE would be GREAT! Heck A title of the song, snippet or album title would have us SPAZZING for sure! 🙂

  2. kimk says:

    good morning peeps! 🙂

    Kalei thanks.. hoping something anything pops up!!

    good morning Judy.. lol we are Rip Van Winkle fans!! 😆

  3. kimk says:

    Ed Sheeran is going on tour in the US apparently his tickets sold out in a flash kind of lame but good for him.. that being said his tour mate is James Blount love him as I recall I remember David likes him too especially this song

    James Blunt – You’re Beautiful (Video)
    would I love to hear David cover this one day.. think he would kill it not to mention any Ed song Perfect would be omgosh!!

    • Martha says:

      Was able to get tickets for Glendale, surprised, don’t know how. Lower level, 8th row, near stage. Never have seen him. Excited. Glendale was where the first time I saw David, Idol Tour 2008. Also, their first performance. Like it was yesterday.

      • kimk says:

        omgosh a little bit jealous.. did not try but saw other Archies trying and failing. would love to go looked there is nowhere close by me Nashville I think but that is still 8+ hour drive for me. I would do that for David not Ed. have the best time come on and tell us how it goes!!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Waving hello! He sure can stay on the down low…and SILENT!

  4. kimk says:

    Ed Sheeran – Perfect [Official Audio]

    Kalei and FOD peeps you all rock.. you just keep going like the DA energy bunnies!! 🙂

    hoping for a little morsel tidbit anything has been almost a month no? hope whatever he is up to he is as happy as a clam!

  5. potluck8 says:

    Good morning VaBeachJudy ,and Kimk,
    My fingers are still crossed for new music news SOON!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Hello potluck8! WAITING for the new music is like waiting for a pot to boil…..get INPATIENT! ENJOY your day! 🙂

  6. kimk says:

    potluck hey.. ha I look like a pretzel here!!

  7. Grammyj says:

    Thanks to FOD for being here all these years and for finding things to post when David is silent. David is so lucky to have this fabulous fansite that always has his back. He is also fortunate to still have fans waiting for his new music. It’s been four years since his last album release. Hopefully it will be released soon, but I’m not holding my breath.

  8. JustJes says:

    That’s so exciting about LeavittoLeavitt Photography!

  9. Chelsy says:

    Hello, everyone…

    Hate to break the positivity here, but I feel like I can express my David-related frustrations here the most, even better than on Twitter.

    This is getting ridiculous. Yes, plenty of people have said this before, but why is nothing getting through to David and his team?? It has been TWO. MONTHS. since that first little tidbit that the new single was coming “next month” (seemingly February) with the rest “shortly after” (March-ish). Not to mention they have been working at this album for literally YEARS, and David himself stated that it was practically finished in December during the tour. At this point I’m waiting less for the actual music and more for some sort of explanation as to why the heck this is so delayed. I get it, David’s a perfectionist, but there comes a point when it is as good as it can be and you have to trust it, and I fully believe that point had to have been reached a long time ago. Also, if there is something going on logistically (with the label, representatives, etc.) with getting this released, then I think we should be allowed to know that too. And if David is still questioning himself as to whether or not he wants to continue his music career, then I really wish he would just be honest with us about that. I think we deserve at least that.

    I’m sorry to keep coming on here and expressing these frustrations, but my patience has run dry. I sincerely hope that something will come up. We need it.

    • Joanie/suttygal says:

      I’m happy you’re here , Chelsy! (((hugs)))
      It does seem like it’s taking so very long, but I believe David wants things all to be ‘just right.” And maybe he just needed some time away for personal time, too before his next big chapter. <3
      New things are brewing! David now has a new team member~ a media co. that started tweeting about him this afternoon! and they confirmed his new music is coming soon! 🙂
      @Marushkamedia tweeted it out today (out of Nashville~ “a boutique PR agency building brands through strategic story placement, image consulting & media coaching.

      Gotta run but wanted to pop in to share.

    • Martha says:

      I understand what you’re saying. Many of us have been around since the beginning (Idol days or immediately thereafter) and we seen a lot go on. This I don’t understand. Going back and forth as he is, communicating then not then back again, has me wondering. I guess he did explain some when he said he felt social media had him again and he was going to cool it. But word on the music he said would already be out should be something he could say a few words on. Something is up I feel. As I said before, I wish he’d pick a mindset and go with it. Maybe he has. Preparing myself for anything.

  10. angelbymyside says:

    Hi folks!

    Maybe things are about to pop 😀

    Marushka Media‏ @MarushkaMedia

    Proud to be part of @DavidArchie’s team. More to come on what’s around the corner for him! #StayTuned #NewMusic #DavidArchuleta

  11. JustJes says:

    One thought I’ve had is maybe the delay is about some of the things he’s written. There’s been a lot of speculation around a potential “special someone” of his… If he does have a special someone, he could’ve written several songs about her and that’s where I see a possible cause of delays. Knowing David, he’d likely highly considerate of her and how being introduced to the public would affect her life. Maybe it’s for her sake that he keeps delaying and (at least right now) staying soooo low-key, because, let’s face it, this would probably be a huge step and big change for her no matter who she is and David would be the kind of person willing to do whatever was best for her/them to get started with their life. It’s cute to imagine anyway. Not a fan of far-fetched speculation, but that’s my happy place to go to while we wait and wait and wait and wait. Even if that’s not the case, just think! The real reason could be just as good. 😀 😀 😀

  12. angelbymyside says:

    Nice pic 😀

  15. MissBianca says:

    Oooh, a PR company! The last thing you need if you’re going to step back. Great find, I’m psyched. I’m still meditating (Ommmmm) trying to keep myself patiently hopeful.

    Kalei, thank you for the colorful, spring post today. Great job!

    In my reading around the web today, I happened on this article about Richard Simmons, who recently took himself out of the public eye. The article helped me better understand how being a celebrity can be exhausting. In particular, I liked the rocks analogy about some expressions of gratitude. We’ve seen all of this happening over the years, yep.

    Some thank-you’s arrive written on rocks, and if you feel obligated to carry all of those rocks everywhere you go for the rest of your life, if you can’t learn to look at them, be grateful for them, and set them down, even they become a lot to carry.

    The more the gratitude is for what has already been done, the more it is written on paper: I’m so grateful for the thing you made; it meant the world to me. That is weightless; it is wonderful. The closer it gets to expecting something from you in the future, something that must continue, the more it is written on stone: You’re the only one who understands me. You’re the only reason I can get out of bed every day.

  16. kimk says:

    justjes that could very well be that if he does really have that special someone he might want to go on the downlow to protect her? American Idol time with what happened was pretty fierce.

    thing is I don’t think most folks are like that with David now he is more like a Michael Buble type artist not say a Justin Bieber or One Direction member. don’t see heart throb there anymore.. now David is cute and all but lol no Enrique there at least right now. ha.

  17. kimk says:

    umm well I can see David going on the downlow but comparing him to Richard.. akk.

  18. MaggieFOD says:

    Dancing with the Stars started their new season last night. Guess the reason David is growing facial hair is not because he was going to be on DWTS! 😉

  19. Martha says:

    Maybe Marushka Media‏ will get him to use social media even though he doesn’t want to. We’ll see.

  20. Alwaysafan says:

    Well David did kind of warn us in his last Instagram that he may take more time away, although it would’ve been nice to get an idea for how long. Even though it’s been pretty quiet for the past few months, I didn’t think for a minute that he changed his mind about music, just that he took this break because it was good time to before his new music comes out.

  21. G says:

    I believe he still wants to share with us, he did say that he would share more, just wants to be able to share without worry so much about what others think of his posts.

  22. Kalei says:

    Hi Archies!
    Looks like things are heating up! A PR Firm is the first step to PROMO!! This boutique PR firm seems the perfect fit for him – nothing too flashy or “Hollywood”.

    We’re watching her social media sites like a HAWK! I’m guessing word of new music will likely come from his new PR Company!

  23. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    Kalei rofl that full beard pic.. now THAT IS a beard!! 🙂

    waving howdy folks.. new music is great now do I think it is David that sells the music yes but who knows maybe this new music will rock like Adele’s or Eds sells itself.. works for me!!

    hope more pops up thanks Kalei for the extra stuff!

    • Martha says:

      Yes, “David sells the music”…. Would still like to see him interact some as promo, not just press releases. He is an introvert though. Then you have Nathan and Gracie, great self-promoters of their talent.

  24. kimk says:

    Waving hello guys! A WONDERFUL Wednesday to all! 🙂

    SUPER Wednesday update Kalei! Looks like David is SERIOUSLY gearing up for his music release….hired a PR firm! Hope things start rolling now! Omar sure is talented! Thanks Jes for the GREAT graphic edits! Don’t Run Away vids,,,,,FAB!

    ENJOY your day! Maybe more news today! 🙂

  26. kimk says:

    Martha hey yeah we all know that.. just that really so David is now the new Richard Simmons? yikes.. hope that this PR firm is just help with things think he needs it smart move if so.
    understand where folks are coming from they want to protect him.. but is babying a grown man a good thing? does he really need that much help? hope it really is that he has this new lady and it is that that he wants to protect. that would make sense.

    • MissBianca says:

      I sure didn’t mean David is the new Richard Simmons (though I wouldn’t be adverse to an unexpected exercise video, ROFL). I really did think the article helped me understand some things I’d been struggling with about being a celeb. I’m not a David protectionist; I’m the original #badfan.

  27. kimk says:

    VABeach good morning sweet lady!! 🙂

    off to get the pups hairdid!! see you all later at least we got a hint of stuff to come finally!!!

  28. Great, awesome, fun post Kalei,

  34. glitter*girl says:

    omg, finally, david has reached a josh groban level of sophistication that the world can no longer ignore

  35. Jani says:

    Well, the PR news has me finally breathing a sigh of relief! He IS moving forward with music. I know, I shouldn’t have ever doubted, but there was that nagging thought in the back of my mind…..what if……??? Well, worry no more, I say! And honestly, if it takes more time, I’m ok with that, too. The PR firm just assures me that it WILL happen. So, Hallelujah!

    And dogonit, doesn’t he look great in that MoTab pic! I could get used to the scruff. 😉 And my dearest friend, who was in Utah before leaving on a humanitarian mission to Ghana, saw him up close and personal, and sent me a blurry pic, all excited. Said he didn’t sing, but “was sure lovely to look at.” Ha, we know that! 🙂

    Kalei, thanks for the fantabulous post! All I have to do is watch one of those vids to remind myself that the man is meant to be singing! And we, my dear Archie’s, are meant to be listening!

  36. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! HAPPY Thursday! 🙂

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Hey kimk! Will NEVER forget the VIP in Greensboro…..first time seeing the man face to face! The woman in front of me waiting for her photo op was writing on her hand…asked why? She said this was the third time she was seeing David and still hasn’t been able to tell him her name! She said talk first…then look at him! Well then it was my turn..so I followed her advice and said my name and where I was from and then looked up! Those eyes hypnotize and mesmerize ….didn’t say another word!

  40. kimk says:

    on the PR person’s IG is a pic of Marie Osmond.. she is pretty good at promoting herself maybe part of what this person is doing is helping David with this all.

  41. kimk says:

    Miss Bianca ha ok.. the thought of an exercise video is well it most likely would never happen 😆 .. now a salsa video set to his own music that has my vote!!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Got my vote too! Hope we don’t have to wait FOREVER for the promised Spanish album! David ROCKING Spanish songs….please let it be in my lifetime! 🙂

      • Jani says:

        Mine, too! It’s the one I’m most excited about. David and Spanish. It needs to happen while I still have my eyesight and hearing!

  42. Al says:

    I was here about a month ago and posted something nice but speculative. Positive speculation, yet somewhat worrisome. Now I’ve come back a month later and I am a bit shocked that he’s not back yet. Well at least not on Twitter. I haven’t checked all of the social media, but I assume he’s not back on anything.

    OK, IMHO there’s no point in speculating because we just don’t know. We never seem to know. This has been a difficult several years for us original fans. That’s why I don’t come here often at all anymore. There’s no point in subjecting oneself to constant disappointment. At least that’s how I’ve coped with it. Not getting my hopes up for East Coast appearances, recorded music (beyond a seemingly barely promoted single that seems to have gone nowhere) or even Instagram or Twitter posts.

    Clearly, David is a sensitive soul. We’ve always known that, but I think we underestimated the depths of his introspection…and angst, even. He wasn’t built to be famous. I don’t think he ever wanted it. But he loves to sing, and I think he enjoys touching people’s hearts through music. So there is a dichotomy there. He’s having trouble finding the balance. He’s also been fairly fortunate so that he probably doesn’t have to work like most people do. He has the luxury of taking time off. That’s good for him, I don’t begrudge him that at all. However sometimes, selfishly, I wish he would just pick a lane and stay in it. This yo-yo type of in and out of our lives stuff can be frustrating at times.

    • Chelsy says:

      I can’t explain how much I agree with this. “Pick a lane and stay in it”. I believe someone else said something along these lines, and I completely agree. If we could just be in the know on what is happening when, that would be very helpful.

      I do think the PR company is a very good sign, but there is A LOT of work to be done to promote the new music that’s coming “soon”, whatever that means anymore. I still believe they should have ridden off the chatter around “Numb” and “My Little Prayer” because things were really heating up when those songs were released. But what’s done is done.

      Trying to stay out of the speculation and just go with the flow, but it’s difficult! Glad to still have a fan community to talk things over with.

    • Martha says:

      I’m with you too. Al. Though I do come here and at least lurk. David is part of my everyday life. Not a huge part, but one just the same. I have to know what he’s doing (or not) on almost a daily basis. Try to keep it in perspective as I lead a fairly busy life. I work full-time and have other interests that keep me busy. But for 9 years he’s been there, whether he likes it or not lol. I definitely wish he would pick a lane or a general mindset. Such a wonderful kind and generous person. That puts some pressure on him. He is too hard on himself sometimes.

  43. kimk says:

    all of that makes sense have nothing to add

  44. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    David needs time off too……he can go for several months at a time to recharge and them BAM….he is back bigger and better than ever….and I am OK with that….hope he is enjoying his time off…..he did say he was looking forward to his personal life this year too……GO DAVID!!!! Ok….glitter girl…..are you Claudia or Amber here to take a temperature check????? Just wondering…….hey kimk……love the pic……he has beauitful eyes…….Miss Vicki

  45. kimk says:

    back bigger then ever.. down for that. think folks are talking about never coming back..

  46. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I had no doubt that David would be back…..performing is in his bones……he just needs some time with his new traveling companion…….Miss Vicki

    • kimk says:

      talking about social media etc promotion tv radio whatever to sell his music.. or is he going to let this new PR firm do it for him? as for concerts.. hope for videos of course but would it be the same if he goes silent? will we still be here especially those who have yet to see him live since before his mission. basically it would be here is new music if you want it and if you can afford it I will be in Utah come see me?

  47. potluck8 says:

    Hi everyone,
    I am wondering if his new music will be released before TOFW in April.

  48. silverfox says:

    Hello FOD,
    It’s been a long, long while since I’ve posted anything on a David fan site. I started visiting the sites occasionally after my good friend SandyBeaches & I saw David in concert last year in Indianapolis & I must be honest. I went not expecting anything new or more than what I remembered from the many concerts I attended before his Mission. I was wrong. He was better than I could have imagined and reminded me of why I became a fan way back in his AI days. A few days ago I visited the sites and happened to come across what I assume are the latest photos taken of David with facial hair and the start of a neat mustache & beard. I just wanted to come here to say I like it! I think once he’s found the right length for his face, whether it’s a shadow or longer, I think it will add to his appeal and already good-looks. Of course, it could be temporary and for a reason fans have not been made privy to, but either way, I do like it. Just a question about why FOD is not using a more current photo of David in the banner? I don’t know how difficult it is to change a banner for a blog or if there is a cost involved, I was only inquiring why an old photo is being used when there must be so many more current ones to choose from? I also would like to add, like many David fans, I am also hoping when he tours again, he will come closer to the Eastern US as time & circumstance has made it difficult for me to travel long distances to see him perform like I used to all those years ago but would definitely like to see him again if it’s within driving distance. 🙂

    • Kalei says:

      Hi Silverfox,

      We’re working on a new banner. I was actually working on creating a new banner when we experienced an unexpected death in the family, so the project went on the back burner. With a new album on the horizon we were hoping for high quality professional photo shoot pics we could use, but now we may go with some fan concert pics.

      It’s not difficult or costly, just takes some dedicated time, and unfortunately real life kicked in and the project got put on hold. But thanks for mentioning it so we can actively work on it again. We hope to have a new banner up soon.

      – Kalei

      • silverfox says:

        Thanks Kalei. I was just wondering. There seems to be hundreds of photos out there of David by fans and since I’m not familiar or knowledgeable about blogs, I was just wondering why an old photo is used. I am aware of your dedication and can imagine the work it takes to run site like this though. 😀

  49. Alwaysafan says:

    Hi silverfox, I have been wondering about the banner too, there are lots of great new pics out there, there must be a good reason it hasn’t been changed.:)

    • Kalei says:

      Hi Alwaysafan,
      You’re right – there are lots of amazing photos out there – we’re working on getting permission to use some fan concert pics and hope to have a new banner up soon.

  50. Spirit says:

    Hello silverfox! It’s good to hear from you again! I met you at David’s show at the Hard Rock Cafe in Louisville and enjoyed chatting with you. I also attended the Indianapolis Christmas concert in December. David was absolutely fantastic! It has been a fun ride watching David grow and mature these past 9 years. I’m looking forward to his new music and also keeping my fingers crossed for some Midwest or eastern shows.

    umm is David in Hawaii.. is this a new pic.. has he shaved?

    • Kalei says:

      HI Kim,

      I think it’s an old pic – there’s a comment on the thread where the guys says he didn’t know who David Archuleta was “back then”. I’m not sure the pics are from Hawaii either lol – maybe it was from when D came and spoke at that public Fireside at the BYU gym?

  52. kimk says:

    always thought FOD was waiting for new music myself.. that being said guess I come here not just for the pics etc feels like family to me.

  53. kimk says:

    Kalei I am so sorry for the loss 🙁
    you see the tweets up top is David in Hawaii or maybe they are older pics?

  54. kimk says:

    love seeing folks pop in
    hoping the time has come that it is finally new music time
    if David is in Hawaii.. umm honeymoon?

  55. kimk says:

    Alaska? sure David will be there place is cool and it is lds whether or not the new music is out

  56. kimk says:

    my thoughts he is still with his MKOP.. and wants to protect her. least that is what makes sense maybe he really is about to get married so when does Jazzy come back?

    Gee is David EVER gonna talk to us again? I though sure he`d check
    In today, how much longer will he be off the grid?

  64. kimk says:

    I don’t care how you slice it one month is not ‘shortly’

    • Grammyj says:

      I agree! And no explanation. No social media at all. We’ve seen a few pictures that others have posted and there is that new PR person. Hope things start popping but I’ve been hoping for that for a long time.

  65. kimk says:

    hey guys.. marvelous FOD peeps have a new thread up.. interesting to say the least all this got me sure there has to be a reason.
