In The Hood

The lead picture above is a wonderful behind the scenes pic of David taken while shooting the music video for “I’ll Never Go.” [which will be released this coming Sunday] Look at the emotion David is showing us in the photo!! He looks quite contemplative…..perhaps worried….and he’s packing a suitcase.  I think all of the coaching David received during the filming of Nandito Ako  from @Anagfeleo really paid off!!! He’s very convincing!

I wasn’t quite sure if the dark blue material bunched behind his head was an attached hood or some type of cinch sac, so I asked Kari…and she kindly responded with a visual for  us!!! 😀 Thanks Kari!! Great shirt and NICE shot!  😉

Here’s the photo alone~

  7. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    Thanks, Joanie, for the post! It’s wonderful, as is your custom. 🙂

    Okay friends, here’s Chapter 20 of Javid!

    Also, new chapters will now be posted every Mon, Wed, and Friday. Enjoy 🙂

    Early the next morning, David and Jasmine met for breakfast and then prayer before catching the ferry back to L.A. I love this, David thought to himself as he listened to Jasmine. It was so amazing to share this time with her, to hear what was on her heart. Praying always brought them closer to God and to each other. Last night, after saying goodnight to Jasmine, he’d spent some time alone in prayer. After what had happened between them, he’d felt so confused and conflicted. This weekend had definitely shown him that his attraction to Jasmine had grown even stronger and he didn’t know how to handle the intensity of his feelings. It was wonderful to cry out to God and set his heart and mind at ease. When he’d awaken this morning, he’d felt the peace and faith that only prayer can give.

    “I hate to leave,” said Jasmine, as she finished praying. They were sitting on the beach looking out at the waves. “But I’m so happy that I got the chance to be here with Edgar and Lisa…and you.”

    “So am I,” said David, taking her hand.

    “It’s been so great. And…I guess…honestly I’ve gotten a bit spoiled getting to spend so much time with you, not just this weekend but since the accident. We’ve been together almost every day. I knew it couldn’t last forever, but, I’m going to miss being with you,” she said.

    David could see the sadness in her eyes. He squeezed her hand sympathetically. “I’m going to miss it too…but you know what’s never going to change?” he said, putting his arm around her. “How much I love you.”

    Jasmine smiled. “I know. I don’t know where all this is coming from,” she said.

    For a few moments, neither of them spoke… and yet they heard each other loud and clear.

    Then, looking at Jasmine attentively David said, “You don’t have to explain…I understand.” And as she looked into his eyes, she knew that he did.
    The next few weeks were busy for both of them as they returned to life as normal. Jasmine resumed modeling for the first time since the accident and David began traveling to promote his new album. It was a difficult transition for both of them, but particularly for Jasmine. I miss him so much, she thought, trying to focus on her work. They’d had a couple of dates since the trip, which had been wonderful, but she looked forward to when they’d be able to spend even more time together.

    She often thought about the last conversation they’d had on the island. She hadn’t known how to express it then but it was as if what had happened between them the night before they’d left had triggered feelings inside her that were almost overwhelming. It made this time even harder to bear.

    One evening Lisa came over for dinner. Jasmine was so grateful for her friendship as the two had grown very close. After dinner they sat talking in her living room.

    “So, how’ve you been?” asked Lisa. “We haven’t had much time to chat lately.”

    “I know. I’ve been okay,” said Jasmine. “Getting back to work has been great…”

    “But?” asked Lisa, seeing Jasmine’s hesitation.

    “But…I can’t shake this sadness that I feel about David and I,” she said, suddenly starting to cry.

    Alarmed, Lisa rose from her seat and sat beside Jasmine. “Oh, Jasmine! What’s wrong? I thought everything was great between you two,” she said.

    “It is,” said Jasmine between sobs, “but that’s what makes it so hard.”

    “I don’t understand,” said Lisa. “What do you mean?”

    Trying to catch her breath, Jasmine told Lisa about what happened between her and David the night before they’d left the island and the conversation they’d had the next morning.

    “I know that we love each other, that he loves me. And I don’t want to go back down the same road with the whole proposal thing but…our relationship is so much deeper than it was before. I don’t really know how to explain it,” she said, wiping away tears.

    Smiling sympathetically, Lisa said, “I think I know what you’re trying to say — you want to be married.”

    “Yes,” said Jasmine, dejectedly. “I thought I had moved past that…that I was okay with the way things were, but now I see that I need so much more, that we need so much more. I just feel this intense longing…and I believe he feels the same way…so why doesn’t he want to be married?”

    Putting her arm around Jasmine, Lisa said, “David’s the only one who can answer that question, but I know one thing for sure: he loves you more than anything in the world. When it’s right, it will happen.”

    “I hope you’re right,” said Jasmine. “It’s just hard feeling this way and not knowing when, or if, it’s going to happen. It’s like torture.”

    Then, sighing and smiling weakly she said, “Wow…I thought that once we got back together all the tears were behind me. Guess I was wrong. Why do things have to be so complicated?”

    “That’s a great question. If only I had the answer,” said Lisa, laughing. Then looking at Jasmine closely she asked, “Are you going to be okay?”

    “Yeah, I’ll be fine,” said Jasmine, smiling. “Thanks for letting me vent and cry on your shoulder.”

    “That’s what best friends are for,” said Lisa, returning her smile.

    Hello….I hope all here are well on this beautiful summer morning. I tell ya, the joy that David exudes in that Manila rendition of ATM is overwhelming. Who does that?!?

  12. Great post Joanie. TGIF. Love all the videos and pics. I have to leave to go to work, but will keep checking comments and voting, while i get ready. Lets get Forevermore MV up one on the MYX top 10. I agree( VaBeach,) it would be good if we can get two of Davids MV in the top 10.
    Excited for Sun. OFF to vote.

  14. Grace says:

    Morning FOD!!!
    Thanks Joanie for the wonderful Friday post!!!
    Can’t wait for I’ll never go music video this coming Sunday!!! To vote for both videos on MYX, probably we should create more email accounts. It takes 4 min for me to throw 10 votes on Forevermore, so I will create 10 more accounts for the new video. I can spend 10 min to vote for him everyday.
    Thanks, Really a Lurker. Love the video teaser!!

    The videos were so beautifully done, the work and time that went into making the videos. Thank you so much Aldrienjon!

  17. Candy says:

    Have to head to the store, the only thing worse then running out of Tuna for Jill is Diet Coke for Momma! BBL

  18. Really a Lurker says:

    This is a great interview from 2011. He talks about how he feels about a lot of things; a lot of good questions were asked. (what he likes to do on a date, his guilty pleasure, etc.)


  19. kimk says:

    cover by Lifehouse Somewhere Only We Know…… is acoustic!!
    GUITAR??!! David??!!


  20. kimk says:

    really a lurker that’s a great interview.. lol his soul mate in a few years down the road. hmm maybe 23? 🙂

  21. kimk says:

    At #3 on the Top Ten Most Requested Artists of the Week Countdown is… @DavidArchie!


  22. Really a Lurker says:

    kimk – I thought the same thing when I heard his answer about soulmates. Isn’t the definition of a few about 3 to 4?

  23. Really a Lurker says:

    Love my quotes ‏@Love_Quote_Book
    “I made up my mind not to care so much about the destination, and simply enjoy the journey.” -David Archuleta

  24. kimk says:

    Really a lurker YES!

  25. lct#DA2014 says:

    And that link to that makes me do what I do for David! Thanks for posting it Really a lurker!

  26. Pickles says:

    Good day everyone! I think zero gravity goes great with spider men. Can’t wait for Sunday ! I keep thinking how it is so hot in the US but the opposite in chile.

  27. lct#DA2014 says:

    Any plans for trending this weekend to welcome the new music video? Anyone know?

  28. lct#DA2014 says:

    Pickles is Zero Gravity really being used for the Spiderman movie or was it a fan that put a video together?

  29. glitter*girl says:

    that video at 4:50, omg david! too funny 🙂

  30. kimk says:


    LDS Living ‏@LDSLivingMag
    Did you know that David Archuleta is releasing a new CD Aug. 7? The track listing was just released and includes…

  31. Anita says:

    Aldreienjon’s David Archuleta .001 video is so beautiful! What a touching piece or work. Thanks so much for posting it!! I’m excited to see David’s new music video on Sunday. This MV is going to be a tear jerker for sure though.

  32. kimk says:

    still can’t watch most of his MKOCT vids or his last vlog but once or anything related. do love This Christmas though.. it will keep me til he gets back.
    oh course BEGIN. and Forevermore as well! 🙂

  33. Anita says:

    I’m thinking of all all David fans in Minnesota who have been affected by the flooding. Be safe and God Bless!

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

    Hey Anita! Thanks for your concern. Its quite a mess up in Duluth & now Moose Lake. Over $100 million dollars in damage. An incredible story, an eight year old boy (from Louisianna) visiting family, was jumping in a culvert when the pressure pulled him away for a 1 mile ride & he was found in the woods near the water. He survived with some cuts and bruises, a miracle. He said “I’ll never do that again”, lol. Tough little guy 😀

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

    Well, gotta go, will check in later. Adios 😀

  36. Pickles says:

    Lct it’s just a fan made video. It would be cool of zero gravity was really part of the movie! I wouldn’t mind if they only used it on the credits .

  37. angelbymyside says:

    Here is another awesome video from Aldrienjon who did the videos above!

    I made another fun fan video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QbVaA0tRjc&feature=plcp

  38. Anita says:

    Beth-Thanks for sharing that story about the young boy. Thank God he’s OK!!!

  39. Really a Lurker says:

    I can’t believe how well this girl draws (Roslyn Garcia):


  40. kimk says:

    Roselyn- HOLY SMOKES! Yet another GORGEOUS portrait of David! You capture him perfectly, especially the eyes which are his signature feature. Thank you so much for answering my question a few days ago regarding whether you are a pro. I didn’t see your response until the next day. I can’t believe that you are only 16!!! You are truly talented and will have an incredible career in art!
    By the way, did you use oil pastels to create the FIX portrait that was posted here on FOD? The colors were so vibrant.

  61. VaBeachArchie says:

    Off to do some voting!

  62. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Yikes. Thanks kimk and Really a lurker. I ordered my Begin. CD about 15 mins. ago on line and then I called the toll free number and talked to a girl named Fernanda, in Utah and she verified that I received my discount with the promo code of June 24 for $11.89+ $2.99 shipping = $14.88. Wished I would’ve bought more. Oh well, at least I’ll have one and hopefully be able to buy more on ITunes and Target and maybe Walmart. It was nice to BEGIN. !!

  63. josie says:

    Yeah, I can’t watch any of those videos yet, either. Good to know I’m not alone. Maybe in 2 years I’ll be ready. lol.

  64. josie says:

    Oh, that was in response to kimk’s post..somewhere…up above. Whoops.

  65. kimk says:

    josie not mad just can’t? not sure if that makes any sense just trying to get thru all this without too many.. ouchies!!

    WOO HOO I PRE-ORDERED BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi everyone. Thank you Joanie for all your efforts. Love that portrait of Paula’s. Would love to win that. Those vids of aldrienjon are so good. I get a kick out of Ana and JoAnn along with MDM spazzing over David. Everybody loves David especially after you meet him. Simply irrestible. Going to go vote on Q102. Oops the Angels are bowling here. It’s thundering and raining pretty good. 😉

  67. josie says:

    “without too many ouchies”, lolol. Yep, that’s my reason, too.

  68. kimk says:

    josie I am a wimp.


  69. Elysian says:

    HI supergrandjudie!!!- I love the pictures of Ana and JoAnn too. They look like such great friends and they are always having so much fun togther! Yup, to know David it to love David! They have obviously fallen under his spell! 🙂

  70. Elysian says:

    Work calls, hope to be back later!

  71. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Voted , David is ahead at 50.03% . Now we have to keep him there.

  72. ksf (a.k.a. RIP Senseless...we'll never forget) says:

    Thanks for the heads up on BEGIN! Just ordered my copy…but now the REAL anticipation begins!!! 😛

  73. Hi! everyone. Just got home and first thing i did was pre-order 2 BEGIN. Albums. YEA!!!!

  74. SGJ, just got home from work and ( I WILL START MY ENGINES RIGHT NOW ). Voting that is.

  75. Kimk and Josie you are not alone, i won’t watch some of his MKOC videos. Especially the ones after his announcement I was kinda sad at the time.

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

    Hello Everyone! Just got back from dinner, my parents took me out for my birthday & the restaurant gave me a free hot fudge sundae, Yummmmm, but, OH MY HECK!!! I’m so FULL, I can barely move. Had a French Dip w/garlic mashed potatoes, but I had to take most of my potatoes home, so I had room for the Sundae,lol. Gotta go with one’s priorities. ICE CREAM is a priority 😆

    If someone gets the chance, can you tweet kari to ask if Begin. will be on Itunes? I dont have twitter yet. Thanks! Now, I think I need to pre-order a copy or 6 of Begin. 😀

  77. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I’m watching The Insider on TV and there is a web show The Mormon Bachelor. It brings Mormon singles together. Cool.

  78. kimk says:

    sgj really!!? lol!!

  79. Roselyn you did a beautiful drawing of David. Jo Ann and Ana, WDW, you guys are awesome. Thank you for supporting David. You guys Rawk. I’m going to vote. Be back later.

  80. kimk says:

    Beth folks are asking her if it will be on itunes. no answer yet.

  81. kimk says:

    next comes snippets or maybe BROKEN being released as a single!!!??

  82. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETH!!.. Your dinner sounded delicious. I love hot fudge sundaes. Hope you have a great day.

  83. kimk says:

    Happy Birthday BETH!!!!!!!!!!

  84. angelbymyside says:

    BETH ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hot fudge sundae sounds like a great birthday treat! Hope you had a wonderful day!

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

    Thanks kimk, for the itunes info & Bday wishes 😀 I cant wait to hear Begin 😀

    Thanks supergrand. Its been a nice day, had to work, but only til noon, the weather is gorgeous & a great dinner. Now, just chatting a bit with you guys & relaxing. I’m not a big partier, but I’m going to try to do a few fun things this weekend 😀

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

    Thanks abms! I havent had Ice cream in over a month(except for one itty bitty scoop of mint choco chip last sunday when my family celebrated my bday & fathers day), so it was a wonderful treat. Is there anything better than a Hot Fudge Sundae 😀

  87. Candy says:

    Thanks Really a Lurker for bringing the link over to pre-order BEGIN. So excited, one step closer to having the cd in hand!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETHY!! Hope you have a super day! The boys had better be making you dinner, along with doing the laundry and cleaning up those feathers. 🙂

  88. josie says:

    You, too, Linda? We can be the Archuwimp triplets. 🙂

    The Mormon Bachelor…are you serious??? So it’s like a cross between The Bachelor & E-Harmony?

  89. kimk says:

    Thanks Candy! Well, as I said, my parents took me out to dinner tonight & I am FULL as can be,lol, but the boys are going to make me breakfast tomorrow morning, but NO EGGS 😆 Probably will include Corn Flakes, their cousin Bob is on the cover 🙄

  91. kmb says:

    THANKS kimk and Really a Lurker for the heads up on preordering BEGIN!!! I just did it and I am SO EXCITED! The date is getting closer and closer 😀

  92. Amanda Jane says:

    Happy Birthday Beth!!! 🙂

    And like kmb said, thanks for the heads up about preordering Begin and the coupon. It’ll be here before you know it!

  93. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Amanda Jane & kmb.. It’s getting closer and closer for the Album. So glad we got to BEGIN. today. I’m so excited. Sunday is almost here. We are so lucky.

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

    Gotta go for a little bit, will check in later. Adios!

    Thanks Amanda Jane 😀

  95. Happy Birthday, Beth. Your so lucky, you’ get to have ice cream. My favorite dessert. Enjoy your day.

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

    Thanks Linda 😀

    Now I mean it, lol Adios!

  97. Elysian says:

    Beth- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!! I hope you are having your BEST birthday EVER! Your dinner certainly sounded delicioso! I like your priorities, I thought I was the only one who took part of my dinner home to make sure I had room for dessert! LOL!

    To top everything else, BEGIN is available on your birthday. I can’t think of a better present! 🙂

    By the way, I came back to read comments late last night and your comments about the boys helping you with your chins, and other things you said had me on the floor laughing! You were in fine form in the funny department! 🙂

  98. Elysian says:

    Beth- On second thought, I can think of a better present, which would the actual CD in hand rather than just a pre-order, but at least were getting closer! 🙂

  99. DFT says:

    Happy Birthday Beth!!!!!!!! Wishing you the bestest in the year to come! 🙂

  100. Elysian says:

    ksf- With all the excitement about the pre-order, I forgot to thank you for the latest installment of Javid!! I really like how you are incorporating the spirituality of the characters into the storyline, and how they are struggling with the conflict between their feelings for each other and their religious beliefs. This is not a topic which you usually see in a romance and it makes the story that much more interesting! 🙂

  101. Elysian says:

    DFT- Hi! I am not usually here when you are commenting, but I wondered if you knew that the funding raising effort to raise $150,000 to cover Luciano’s pro:sthetics for the rest of his life met its goal!!! I think that young boy’s incredible courage and positive outlook even in the face of extreme adversity really touched a lot hearts!. A big thank you to both you and kmb for directing me to the video about him. It was really inspirational! 🙂 I think about him often.

  102. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf.. So glad Elysian reminded me what I started out to do about 30 mins. ago. Thank you for the chapters today. I can almost feel the struggle Jasmine and David are having in their relationship. Love ain’t always easy. All good things come to those that wait. David knows that. I love the story.

  103. breanneruss says:

    I was in my car for about 2 hours today. Listened to David’s TOSOD cd. There are so
    may great songs on that cd!!! Still makes me mad that Jive didn’t promote it more. Wonder why David never did a TOSOD Tour?

    ChangeLuciano’sLife ‏@helpluciano
    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED We now have the financial resources necessary to give Luciano everything he needs. Thank you to the hundreds of donors.

    Hello Supergrandjudie, and Breanneruss

    DFT- Isn’t that wonderful!! Its testament to the power of the internet to bring stories like Luciano’s to light so that he and others can get the help they need. Its very heartwarming! 🙂

  107. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Fiona! Happy Early Birthday!

  110. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    DFT.. I’m getting ready to go to Ocean City, Maryland to see how my summer rentals are doing. Got two groups staying in two of the apts’ Gotta see how they destroyed the places in one and a half months. It’s a lot of work. I just once would like to go to their house and do unto them as they do unto us. Unbelieveable. Good thing my husband can do all the repairs.

  111. DFT says:

    SuperGrandJudie, ayeee that is awful how they can destroy it. So sorry to hear that. ((((hugs))))

  112. Fiona says:

    Thanks David! How are you doing?

  113. Is there any plans for trending I’ll Never Go MV. I’m ready if we do. Or some kind of promo. Hope we do something, I’m so excited. Well i’ll go vote again, BRB.

  114. DFT- How are you. haven’t had a chance to go to chat. Been busy voting on my spare time. Hope all is well.
    SGJ- sorry about your rentals. My daughter has one and in know what you mean.

  115. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. I saw on a list yesterday that there is trending planned for July . I didn’t see any for this weekend yet. Maybe kimk knows.

    DFT.. Aww Thanks. Here’s a hug for you just because ((((hug)))

  116. Elysian says:

    Fiona- Happy early birthday!!!! So many FOD birthday celebrants!

    supergrandjudie- That is terrible that people have so little respect and consideration for the property of others. I hope that damage isn’t too bad this time!

  117. Elysian says:

    Well, life is calling so I have to get going. Have a fantastic weekend supergrandjudie, DFT, LindaFromCali, Fiona and all you other wonderful FODers!

  118. DFT says:

    you are welcome, Fiona! I am doing pretty good. thanks!
    Hi Linda! I’m not sure on a twitter party. I haven’t heard anything yet. I have been voting also. Go Team David!

  119. Grace says:

    Hello everyone!
    Beth, Happy Birthday to you!!!
    Thanks kimk, Really a Lurker for the info on the pre-order!!! Woohoo!! I bet there will be a better deal than the Deseret’s later. lol. But I am still ordering the CD.

  120. DFT says:

    awww thanks SuperGrandJudie. (((hugs))) back
    Have a great weekend, Elysian!

  121. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Elysian.. Yeah, I don’t know what they’re thinking. Obviously, nothing. They have to pay for the damages and it still doesn’t deter them. This is their fun. I don’t get it.See you tomorrow.

  122. Russ says:

    Hi DFT, it’s been awhile…how’s everything going? Wow, we can finally pre-order Begin. I CAN’T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON IT!!! Gonna get an extra copy for my SIL in Cuba. She’ll probably be familiar with BOTW. She just love his voice, it doesn’t matter that he’s singing in English. I know she’s praying for one in Spanish and so are we, and we may get our wish one day 🙂

  129. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

  134. Hi Russ, great to be able to catch you here. Did you go to Stroudsburg for MKOCT? It would have been nice to have met you.

    Hey Beth, spill the hot fudge and tell us where you had your birthday. I’d love a sweet treat on my BD. too haha. What a nice touch!

  135. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel. sweet dreams

  136. ksf, sorry I missed you. Javid is taking on a life of its own and it seems to be writing itself. YES, I’M ADDICTED!!!!!!! Is it Monday, yet? You’ve really got a feel for Jasmine and David and that’s why it’s working so well and believeable 🙂

  137. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    I’m tired now. Everyone else is going to sleep. So am I. Goodnight everyone. See you tomorrow.

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

    idamae, We had dinner at a local restaurant, its not a national restaurant chain establishment, but its a great place 😀 OOOOOH Yeahhhhhh! Hot Fudge Sundae Yummmers 😀

  139. Russ says:

    Idamae, No I didn’t make it to Stroudsburg. Would have been nice to meet you as well. Someday I hope.

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

    Goodnight supergrand!

  141. Beth, sorry to hear of all the hardships MN is enduring lately. Heard the news of a motorist coming face to face with a baby seal on a flooded road way. It looked like a deer in the headlights when they tried t rescue it. Luckily they got the little fellow in time. Glad to hear Twin Cities are OK.

  142. Russ, it may just happen since Pa and NJ are so close and David has traveled to both on tour in the past. 2014 can’t come soon enough!!!!

  143. jennyfromthebay says:

    hi everyone!

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

    Thanks idamae! Duluth & Moose Lake are a mess right now. We had some storms in the twins cities, lots of rain, some damage in the outer suburbs, but up North, will take months & months to repair. Crazy about the animals from the zoo, so sad about the animals lost 🙁 But they’ll deal with it, neighbor helping neighbor 😀

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

    Hey jennyfromthebay 😀

  146. Goodnite, SGJ…sorry to hear about your rental problems. Apart from the reimbursement wouldn’t they be detered if they’re made to sign a contract/lease making that behavior offensive and threatened with a court action. Of course, you know more about it than me but it makes me very angry to hear 🙁

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

  148. Beth, I think you were right about David’s reflections of life being difficult not necessarily eluding to him but of the situation around him. I get chile tv and was shocked to find a family of 5 living in a tree house in winter because they lost their house. The story had a happy ending cuz some benevolent soul gave them a house to call their own 🙂 It was such a David story!!!!

  149. Gonna throw a bunch a votes David’s way 🙂

  150. jennyfromthebay says:

    Q102 is tied! Good job Archies! Keep voting!

  151. Miss Vicki says:

  152. Miss Vicki says:

    Waving to Idamae before I hit the sack….Miss Vicki

  153. Sorry Fiona. Didn’t know it was your birthday too. Happy Birthday.

  154. pocoelsy says:

    Hello all,

    Quick stop here, happy birthday Beth ..wishing all the best to you 🙂

    So good to see David’s leading on q102. I’ll vote diligently.

    I see that many of you preordered BEGIN already.. a bit jealous here haha I don’t know if it apply to international fans or not, if anyone knows please educate me !!! I still hope that it will be on the music store shelf in Malaysia but so far it’s so quiet here!!!:(, saw that it’s available in the Philippines by Astroplus and Odyssey but man!!!the shipping cost and the waiting period are the killer !!! oh well I’ll get my hand on BEGIN somehow, I just like to complain …like … a lot lol

    Hubby’s home the whole weekend so less talk here but will vote, and looking forward to the premier of I’ll never go…so exciteddd , happy weekend everyone.

  155. Pickles says:

    Hola everyone yeah for the pre order of Begin.

  156. kimk says:

  157. lct#DA2014 says:

    Yeah #1! Wonder when it will be available at itunes?

    Wonder if David happens to have more international fans because we manage to surpass him … We know David is big in Asia, but Adam? He’s probably bigger there in the states. Keep voting!

  158. kimk says:

    lct hopes for itunes, Walmart and Target.. more get to see it the better!

  159. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello kimk, lct and FOD! BEGIN. #1 at Deseret is GREAT news! Can’t wait to hear David sing that tracklist…..EPIC!

    Thanks to the international fans for the lead on the Q102 poll…hope we can keep it going! Let’s ROCK the vote guys!! WE ARE THE ULTIMATE FANS…no question about it!

    Off to vote some more and coffee. ENJOY YOUR DAY and your David time!

  160. kimk says:

    David has 1,130,024 followers!!! 😀

  161. lct#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, what was the last count in his followers and how many did he increase by?

  162. kimk says:

    lct would say about 2000 a day? guess though but seems about right. fluctuates.

  163. meagain says:

    I find the weirdest posts on tumblr LOL


    Cool about BEGIN. being #1 on the Deseret chart. Hope it’s gonna be available on iTunes, Amazon, WOW HD and other online stores too.

  164. muldur says:

    If you are interested in tracking David’s followers with some real data here is a link that can help you do that. http://twittercounter.com/compare/DavidArchie/month/followers Sometimes the daily numbers don’t seem to ring true to me but overall the trending and the average per day is accurate.

  165. nora says:

    been voting on q102, why is it when #s on our vote only goes up by one or two and theirs goes up by 3 or 4? I think they hold back on glamberts votes to keep us voting and then add them all at once seems strange I’m sure I’m not the only one voting, you vote for an hour and your #s keep going down?

  166. Virtue says:

    Happy Birthday, Kristin!
    Happy Birthday, Beth!
    Happy Birthday, Fiona!

  167. Virtue says:

    Q102 % is dropping quickly!

  168. Rapport says:

    I don’t like to see first time FOD commenters come and go, so I am back! Off the top, let me say that David has the most incredile fan base — and one of the fastest growing. If I have just come out of the woodwork to declare my love for and support of my artist-of-choice, I know there are countless others hanging out in the walls ready to do the same.

    ksf, you are a Harlequin romance writer, kiddo. You have a knack for the dialogue and landscape of love.

    Roselyn Garcia, that is one of the best — if not the best — drawing of David I have ever seen. If you are not an artist by trade, you should be. And PaulaFOD, your portrait is exquisite and serene. I can’t even draw the signature David squiggly pig!

    Time to BEGIN. my day. I’ll be back.

  169. VaBeachArchie says:

    nora, Virtue…Been on the vote this morning too! We are slipping back fast…hope we can keep the lead! Now 50.12!

    Rapport…Glad to see you back and really LOVE to read your comments! This is one AMAZING HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR ARCHIES! Some fabulous mods. loyal, loving fans and the most INCREDIBLE artist and person in David…can’t beat it!

    Back to throw some more votes David’s way..work till late tonight so trying to get alot in now! Want to KEEP that lead!

  170. nora says:

    rapport, so glad to have you back and hope you will continue to join us. I enjoy your encouraging comments about David and his fans, I agree David is the real thing, one who stands up for his principles, and does not back down. He cares so much about people and tries to help through charities, and does not broadcast all that he does,hope when he returns people will recognize him for his talent, which is underated these are some of the reasons that we love and support him. now back to voting on q102!!

  171. A Fan says:

    Question for Rapport if you would like to respond since based on your comments you seem to articulate well what David may be doing when he returns from his mission. I would like your thoughts on this: I often wondered when David came in 2nd on AI7 and signed with Jive and after “Crush” being so successful and extremely popular at that time why Jive did not have him do a duet with a Top 40 artist to propel his career since after “Crush” there was minimal radio play . I was waiting patiently for a duet and nothing happened. I have been a fan since AI7 and will wait until he returns because I love his voice it’s very unique. The way Jive handled David’s career just bugs me as I do believe even though David had certain requests regarding what he would or would not do they could have done something keep him relavent with Top 40 radio play at that time. I often wonder if David would have signed with Disney based on his age if it would have been a better fit for him because Disney sure does promote him even till today. I know David is way beyond a Disney artist based on his voice and knowledge of music but at 17yrs old at the time I do believe he would have gotten a lot more continued exposure. I always had so many questions following David’s career as I wanted him to be recognized in US for the great talent that he is. But I do believe that when he returns he will be a force in the music industry. Being a fan and seeing him grow from a 17 yr old to 21 has been an amazing joy. JMHO

  172. Rapport says:

    A Fan, I am not privy to any of the decisions and discussions of Jive and David, but I think the record label just didn’t know what to do with a multi-genre rarity like David. Disney, for me, would have been the place to start, but when you have this level and ridiculous diversity of of talent, you generally start out first with the mainstream stuff. David did well by that, but the promotion and publicity that went into his next entry just wasn’t there. It was spotty at best. His fans did more to publicize him than Jive ever did. The fans get David, know David, have David’s back and career in mind — always.

    I think David’s decision to part with the label was a good one. We’re just now starting to see the real potential of David Archuleta and I am almost certain he will do a duet with an A-lister in the coming years after his Mission. I’m only sorry it hasn’t happened sooner. Forget about the Charice and Miley duets. This boy needs the matching pipes of a Celine Dion or an Adele. Even a Regine Velasquez would be sublime.

    As David moves forward, I am convinced we will have the rare gift of multi-genre and multi-generational music from one artist. There will be more pop, but also the first of many Spanish (maybe even French), inspirational, country, gospel, broadway tunes and ballad albums. Throw in hip-hop and David has more towering talent in his small frame than any singer out there.

    Gotta go, but will be back later with more.

  173. jeani/ut says:

    I hope David never gets stuck in one genre of music. I’ve been obsessed with Forevemore and just listened to The Other Side of Down yesterday and remembered how much I love it. Two very different CDs

  174. A Fan says:

    Rapport thank you so much for your reply. I so agree with you. Because of David’s talent and upon hearing him sing live many times and amazing I might add that I wanted him to be acknowledge for the true talent that he is. When I followed him on AI7 I always wondered what he would sound like in a live setting and when I went to AI7 tour I became hooked. His voice in that venue was off the charts. I have been to Celine’s concert and many others who have great voices and he falls right in with those artists talent wise. My wish list would be for him to do a spanish duet with Gloria Estenfan when he returns. I think that they would sound amazing together.

  175. kimk says:

    hip hop? 🙂

  176. Joe says:

    The leave-taking-David had some interesting creative songs on both albums, and was trying some intriguing performances, and indicated he wanted to move away from conventional pop. He was showing his innovative music side. However, let’s hope the coming-back-David won’t be just a Deseret house-singer and a “connected to God” voice, no matter how much we respect his inspiration and spirituality. There are many dimensions of listeners’ lives that he should strive to connect with if people are going to stay interested in him. His cuteness will carry him only so far, and two years of fans focusing on it is not going to help him. With only a couple exceptions, the “David Archuleta Turn Up The Music” youtube video by “TherealNoelia” is really on the right track in its selection of visuals.

  177. maribeth valerio says:

    Hello everyone!
    My first time ever to post here,,
    St. John the Baptist’s feast today!
    And while sitting inside the church listening to the Homily the Priest suddenly ask us if we had found ‘The John’ of our life.
    I just smile and thought “YES I DID! But he is not John, his name is DAVID JAMES ARCHULETA! And lucky are the ones who found this guy in their life because David does not only lead us to see the bright side, he is also the ANGEL that was sent from above bringing us so much joy. Not just a smile in your lips, but through heart and soul.! #DA2014
