Director’s Upload of Forevermore

Wow. Wow. Wow.  What did we do to deserve all the richness in video productions over the last few days?

From Director Paolo Bernaldo.  It’s his High Definition version of the Forevermore Music Video, his own upload on his channel.  Different camera angles, close ups.  Intensely zen.

So much I’ll Never Go Buzz!

I almost can’t keep up!  Thanks to @violet4ever and @mckenzieharr for being great sources of all these.  And thanks to Martha  @mlpb3  for sending many to us at our gmail account!

Take a look at each one…these links are from everywhere!  Great job to David’s publicist!

Here’s a typical description of the music vid, this one is from Miss Exclusive.  Click on each header below to read the articles for yourself!

No, he’s not back making music, but his team is releasing some new stuff for his fans! “I’ll Never Go” is the latest track from David, who’s currently on a mission for two years. The video was filmed in Manila and is from the album Forevermore that was released in the Philippines. Just another little something to hold you over while we all wait David’s return. Check it out !

You MUST read this one.  It talks about David cutting his Bieber-eque locks. Huhh lol?

The 21-year-old soul singer (and “American Idol” season seven runner-up) has just released a new music video for his sensational new love song, “I’ll Never Go,” and this might be Archie’s best song yet!

The new ballad, which is sure to get tons of radio airplay this summer (it’s HOT!), is off David’s fourth studio album “Forevermore,” a collection of original Filipino love songs. (The video for “I’ll Never Go” was filmed in Manila, Philippines).

Archuleta has been out of the spotlight in recent months. In December, the half-Honduran singer surprised his fans with the announcement that he was putting his music career on hold to embark on a two-year Mormon mission. Then in March, David had another surprise for his fans: he announced he was cutting his Bieber-esque locks in favor of a more conservative look. “Just about to go get my haircut for my mission. You have to keep it short and clean, and nicely cut, so I’m going to go do that now,” the singer said at the time.

“Forevermore,” is already available at music stories in the Phillipines and available for digital download.

The buzz continues…..

Phewwww!  I’ll post more as we get them!

The Sweet Smells of I’ll Never Go Cologne???

Kari tweeted about a possible marketing opportunity that was not to be.  This time….

I just had to find some of my favourite recollections of David and aromas!

David with Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel, fast forward to 4:20.  “I didn’t really smell her or sniff her or anything”  ROFL!

…. and check out 3:05 +, David with Comedienne Eugene Domingo in the Philippines

And his hilarious tweet from June, 2010.

What would a David cologne smell like?  I gotta think nothing heavy, shower fresh with a hint of mango lol.  It would fly off the shelves!

2.  Concert in Kansas City

From Kathy H

Bonded in #DA2014

I was one whose first reaction to David’s mission announcement was probably shock. Soon, however, I settled into my belief that this decision fit my view of him as a person who lives his life both courageously and thoughtfully. Since I have no doubt that he intends to return to music, I found my peace and figured I’d use the time to catch up on the several things that my David devotion had derailed. Friends I spoke with online and in the real world spoke of their own reactions, and some of us who live near one another promised we’d see each other during the break. You know how it is? How those in our lives who aren’t fans often seem to visibly exercise patience when we forget and say that name one more time? But David fans get David fans. We need each other now as much as ever.On the weekend of his departure, a group of us met over lunch (to talk about David as much as we wanted, dangit) and soon were discussing “next time.”

We decided to do something in Kansas City in addition to lunch, and eventually settled on this concert, probably largely because both headliners, Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Callait, have a connection to David — I believe he’s spoken of both in blogs or vlogs.June 23 turned out to be very hot, but we met for lunch in an air conditioned restaurant and drove air conditioned cars to the Starlight, Kansas City’s outdoor venue, where we had tickets to the show starting at 4pm. We then spent four and a half hours seeking whatever shady spots we could find and refilling our cups and water bottles. (We were late getting the memo about the headliners coming on after five opening acts and tons of recorded music.) But we talked about our families, David, our jobs, and David, our vacation plans and also David.

The time passed.One opener who got our attention was Andy Grammer. He can sing, he writes his own stuff and he’s quite charismatic. We were impressed. We all also enjoyed Colbie, with her wonderful husky voice and positive pop hits. Gavin came across to me as someone who gets lost in the music like someone else we know, and his set was fun and energetic. We had a great time and we’re already talking about the next “next time.”

We’ll know one another better by the time David returns and we’ll be ready to see him in concert. For him, it could never really be too hot or cold or long to wait, right?

Thank so much Kathy for sending this to us!  We appreciate hearing about the #DA2014 bonding which continues!

3.  Western Road Trip, Part 2

Yesterday I posted Shelley’s part of the recent west coast fan road trip.  Here is Sam’s story below.  Enjoy, and thanks again Sam, and Shelley, for sending these in!

Tomorrow, you get Part 3 by Nancy!  I love this!

Hello Everyone-

David at the Beach

Sammie here! I just wanted to add what a wonderful time we had together! I would encourage all of David’s fans to keep planning these kind of events with each other. It’s amazing what being around a group of people who all share the same kind of heart. It’s very good for the soul! I am so thankful for the past four years to being able to meet these wonderful people, and be able to share a trip like this. It’s was also very refreshing for the “David Soul.” It was very nice to be able to look back on each of our amazing memories of David show’s and events with each other, also to be able to think about the future. I am very happy to say I was able to cross off  “Go on an amazing road trip in the west” off my bucket list! I’m going to leave you guys with a quote I saw while on the road trip.  

Shelley, Lisa (from CO) and Sam

“There are people we meet in life that make everything seem magical. Cherish them.” I feel very blessed to be able to say that many of the friends I have made as being a David fan make me feel like this each and everytime we are all together. It’s a bond that is indescriable! It was very important for me to make sure we keep our strong connection as a fan base. So thanks for being amazing fans, people, and friends. <3

 Here are some of my pictures from facebook. 🙂  (note from Pastel…you MUST check them out!!!)



* * * * *

Wait, Don’t Go!

Had to post one last vid from a show on the west coast.  Listen to these vocals.  I almost lost it screening this before posting.   Okay, I’m better now….

* * * * *

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

  8. glitter*girl says:

    good morning everyone 🙂 wonder how kari keeps him very informed? doesn’t he just get to read and send e-mails only once a week? or is kari allowed to call him?!

  9. Grace says:

    Morning FOD!!!
    Pastel, you did a great job on putting everything together for today’s post! Pictures, videos, articles, plenty of goodies!! I read many articles on his new video and some articles sounded like this song would be released here in the US, so I just laughed. haha.

    I saw this tweet from a fan. Folks, get encouraged by this fan with 28 accounts on MYX. If you don’t know how to create them, I would be willing to help you step by step. I’ve already helped someone and now she has 10 accounts. One vote per 24 hours can’t get him to the top. Because fans of other artists have multiple accounts too. 🙂

    Azhen Mendoza ‏@azen3yan
    I created 28 Accnts on MYX 4 @DavidArchie ! Gonna make more WEN i get home later! ARCHIES, please VOTE 4 DAVID! @archuletaphils @onedavidnet

    kimk–OK….you got me there….LOL….guess we’ve been nuts from day 1!

  20. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Since I was crazy busy with Camporee last week, I’ll post last week’s and this week’s idea for keeping yourself busy during David’s mission.

    Week 10; June 18-24: Instead of sending a card for David, send one to David’s family or Kari. Kari has been amazing, send her some love!
    Week 11; June 25-July 1: Vote for your top David official videos and share the results here. (Crush, ALTNOY, TMH, SBL, Wait, Nandito Ako, Forevermore, ING).

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–thanks! 🙂

  22. Jhen says:

    Like how fans name David cologne on the previous thread lol, it could be fun if Bench will have David cologne in the future, Yes, David smell like a baby powder lol
    We should keep voting for I’l Never Go.

  23. Janel aka Nellie says:

    My favorite video seems to be the least favorite of everyone else. It’s Touch My Hand. I think it’s because it’s David in his natural element, on stage with a microphone. I love the splashes of color on the black & white too, and seeing the adoring teen fans go crazy over him. It’s always been in my top 10 favorite songs of David’s too. I like the artistry of both Forevermore and ING. Probably Crush next, then ALTNOY, then SBL and last Wait. I find myself trying to figure out what the heck’s going on with that video (Wait) more than listening to and enjoying the song. NA is somewhere in the middle, though I think I’ve only seen it a couple times.

  24. Jhen says:

    So glad that David Begin was the most popular cd right now at Deseret Book

  25. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–if he doesn’t wear perfume and smells like baby powder….wonder what soap or lotion or deodorant he uses?….unless he’s naturally pleasant-smelling….that’s rare.

  26. lct#DA2014 says:

    Boy, David’s gotten alot of buzz in news articles…. Now if the radio stations could do the same….. Off to leave more comments. Please if you have the time – it’s important to leave a comment. The links are here on the front page and on twitter. You can write one general comment and use it for all the sites. I just don’t know why fans don’t do this part…. I hate to see only 3 or 4 comments…. It makes me sad.

  27. angelbymyside says:

    Hello FOD 😀

    Love the post Pastel. Thank you 😀

    I could watch the director’s HD cut of Forevermore…..forever(more). It is amazing!

    Lots of buzzzzzz about ING! ♥

    LOL at the ING logo! 😆

    Everytime I watch the Jimmy Kimmel segment with Guillermo “interviewing” David it cracks me up!

    The fans are so artistic…love all the collages!

    glitter*girl ~ No Kari can’t call David….she gives him updates through email.

  28. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–like his music videos…except for the Wait video…just doesn’t connect to me.

  29. sarahhazel says:

    lct–read that one a while ago….very emotional.

  30. Frankie says:

    Oh my gosh. That post on The Voice is soooo dramatic. I am all for supporting David and loving him and whatever else anyone wants to do, but crying for 6 hours the morning after his announcement? You’d think people just heard he died.

  31. sarahhazel says:

    Really a lurker–nice gif!…my fave part of the ING video…scene with “even the sky will tell you”…..

  32. angelbymyside says:

    Just read FunnyGirl’s story posted at the Voice! Trying to type this through the tears…what a powerful and moving story. If you get the chance, read the story at the link LCT posted at 11:19.

  33. angelbymyside says:

    Frankie ~ Everyone handles things differently. You can’t put everyone into a box and expect them to react the same way. People process their emotions differently. There is no right or wrong way! I am sure some people didn’t even shed a tear, while others cried until there were no more tears left to shed.

  34. Frankie says:

    Oh I know people handle things in different ways. But crying for 6 hours? And then posting about it. Idk. I just think it’s a little odd. And dramatic.

  35. kimk says:

    Frankie want tough and tumble weed type fans/artist don’t think you will find it here.

  36. kimk says:

    fabulous post at the voice.. love FG. she really is an amazing writer and hope after David’s mission she can come back and spazz along with us like the good old days.
    like ksf.. she sure can dish it good!!

  37. kimk says:

    Really a lurker wow love that gif!!

  38. glitter*girl says:

    thanks angel 🙂 i would not call a once a week e-mail very informed. but sure everyone’s definition is different.

  39. glitter*girl says:

    frankie- i also cried for hours. it was the shock of the announcement at first but it was also seeing david cry which made me cry.

  40. mango#DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl, I think Kari can also write David letters.

  41. glitter*girl says:

    thanks mango! i forgot about the good old fashioned letter 🙂 wonder if david has had time to read our cards and letters? hope so.

  42. sarahhazel says:

    Didn’t really cry when I first saw the announcement on YT….guess I was just so shocked…couldn’t even utter a word….but my heart felt so heavy….kept thinking why? why? why?….then after a few days….I had moments I get a little teary…now I’m missing him a lot still but generally OK with it….thanks to FOD.

  43. kimk says:

    Cherry Mariano ‏@cherry08mariano
    Awww I’ll Never Go is still at #10 on Myx Daily Top Ten (June 27, 2012) ☹ please vote!


  44. kimk says:

    I think with the vid and David being away it might be hard to keep him on the chart at MYX but I
    glad he is on it though!!!

  45. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–let’s just keep voting to keep him on the Top 10!

  46. Jhen says:

    sarah- yeah, I wanna too what soap , lotion or deodorant he use lol, but he smell good!

  47. breanne says:

    Thanks for the great post Pastel!! That pic of David at the top is beyond AMAZING!! I saw him at the CFTH show in SLC and he did such an amazing job that night! Plus he looked so good in that outfit!

    I’ll Never Go, Forevermore & Nandito Ako are all on Chart Central! Vote 1 song hourly:

    Use all your email addresses to vote for I’ll Never Go On MYX. I currently have 8, but I guess I will get a couple more:

  48. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–didn’t get a chance to smell him the last time….haha….lucky you!

  49. kimk says:

    sarahhazel #10 is better then him not being on the chart..
    and in the end with all that matters is that when he comes back from his mission folks check him out again.

  50. breanne says:

    Let’s get Forevermore mv to 1 million views. Currently at 777,000+

    I’ll Never Go mv:

    FunnyGirl’s post on the Voice was very moving!!

  51. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Pastel for the awesome post. You guys are all beyond amazing.
    I love all the goodies David has left us fans, but without him around, and not even able to communicate with the fans, really takes (for me) a bit of the fun out of the whole fandom experience. For me anyway, it’s about following the process of his career through concerts, tv appearances, vlogs and of course, the most important, his music that make it so darn exciting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving Forevermore album and so looking forward to BEGIN, but I can’t wait until I will be able to feel that full excitement again.

  52. breanne says:

    Correct link for Forevermore mv:

  53. kimk says:

    know you all gonna be mad at me but… a way to get folks to watch a vid and vote on repeat is for him to do that Archugaze kind of thing that he does.. not walk out the door suitcase in hand.
    I get the point of the vid.. and appreciate that it was done for the fans so not going to spazz about views or votes.
    doesn’t make sense if it was just for us to do with as we wish. in each their own way.
    and that is what I will do..
    for me I love the blue shoes and his stubble.
    his angst as well.
    lol can he come home now.

  54. kimk says:

    cq dying here to BEGIN!! hmm my guess we might even get a snippet or two soon??? maybe even get Broken? don’t they release a single before the cd drops?

  55. Jhen says:

    sarah- because I got a chance to be beside him at one point , so I was able to smell him lol

  56. Really a Lurker says:

    Concerning Funnygirl’s post on the Voice – sometimes when something difficult occurs in your life, the emotions come out in something unrelated. Its like an outlet, the crying is very easy. I lost someone very dear to me and I could cry at sporting events. Even though something else happens, you equate the feelings of loss to other things; I guess its a defense mechanism.

    In my case, I became even closer to David as a fan after the announcement, because I thought “wow, he’s not supposed to leave, he’s supposed to be here.” So here I am, everyday, keeping up with news about him, when before I knew he was travelling around and I kind of took him for granted.

    Again, thanks for letting me express my feelings and opinions. You guys are the best!

  57. cq#DA2014 says:

    kimk, yes usually a lead single before the cd drops is what is done, but who knows……just am hoping for a few professional promos and if they are going to happen, it should start soon. Ugh, pure selfishness….WANT DAVID BACK, NOW!

  58. kimk says:

    cq lol we can beg all we want.. ain’t happening!!
    am dying to hear the songs.. LOVE his choices!!!

  59. sarahhazel says:

    Broken should be the lead single off the album IMO….and promos starting…like now or early next month?…otherwise, the public won’t know that it exists….or that David still exists…

  60. cq#DA2014 says:

    kimk, hahahahahaha…..just venting.

  61. kimk says:

    sarahhazel bet they have something up.. or lol hope they do.
    usually most cd’s have singles no?

  62. Really a Lurker says:

    **typo Krompass***

  63. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–just venting too, like cq…haha…***crossing fingers*** they WILL have promo.

  64. kimk says:


    #10 folks.. vote and let’s get I’ll Never Go up the charts!! 😀

  65. Really a Lurker says:

    Anybody interested in trying out for American Idol? This blog tells you how and they must be smart, they mention David, Daughtry, and Kelly Clarkson in the same sentence.


  66. kimk says:

    sarahhazel and cq lol vent away.. worse case it is just a few fans for him to sing to in two years. really would that be too bad.. a small room and him serenading to us in Spanish!!!? ha how about GAH!!!!

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

    kimk – hi! thanks 🙂 (re: your 11:42 comment)

    Frankie – I understand your thoughts…but as someone else said, everyone is so different. I personally did not cry at the announcement, have not cried since the announcement, and don’t intend to cry. But, as Really a lurker was sharing…we all come from different places and experiences…and I think all of us have a different level of “attachment” to David…it’s all relative to who we are. I personally think David’s departure is a wonderful thing for many of us because, hopefully, in his two-year absence, we are able to put things in a much better perspective. And also, ironically, David is the perfect example of someone doing just that.

  68. Kalei says:

    Awesome post ML! 90th Day of service woo hoo! Love all the buzz about ING!

    Looking forward to seeing SoCal fans this Saturday at the fan get together! The stories of other fan meet ups was so fun to read! We’ll be adding to the story collection soon!

  69. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–but I wanna be in a stuffy, sweaty packed venue with all those screaming, elbowing mosh-pit peeps…haha!

  70. Mb says:

    Wow! Loving all the great posts,been missing all the action on FOD was away on vacation and was in a bad car accident with my sister and brother-in-law that totaled his truck.I am so happy and thankful that we were ok but now a little bummed to find out that there was a KC get together!! I live in Independence which is like 20 minutes from the Starlight and my mom gets tickets from her work for their concerts and have never been able to go to one of these get togethers for David,I guess I will just have to wait for another opportunity to attend.

  71. kimk says:

    djb ‏@djbell13
    Nothing like son getting 6 broken teeth to end a great soccer wkend…I need a @DavidArchie song ASAP @kariontour #boysboysboys*shakinghead*

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @djbell13 OMJ! 6 teeth? Poor kid. Maybe we will do a sneak peek soon. Songs are still being mixed!

    djb ‏@djbell13
    @kariontour @DavidArchie Sneak Peek? THAT just made my day 🙂 By Aug 7 we shall have new D music and 6 fixed teeth!! BEGIN. celebration!

    SNEAK PEAK SOON???!!!!! 😯

  72. ksf (a.k.a. kilig 4 David) says:

    This is COMPLETELY random but…can’t stop rofl at these lyrics: “The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed.” Lol! Are you kidding me?? Who says that?? They won’t play David’s music but they’ll play this nonsense? Hilarious!! 😛

  73. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol me too.. but then again I haven’t done a mosh pit so maybe I should hold onto saying if I would like it until after I survive one!!

    WHOOPIE>>>>>>>>>>>>> SNIPPETS SOON!!!!!!!!

  74. kimk says:

    ksf lol teenage girls love that stuff.. especially when sung by 5 cute boys. 1D is the perfect boyband for now.. I don’t mind them they usually don’t do anything ott like other acts.
    the way the world is you need to know what folks or your target audience wants along with what you wish to share with the world. works both ways.
    as for David.. sure he will find his niche.
    or lol at least I hope he will.
    pretty sure it isn’t teenage girls per se.

  75. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–I know……what is wrong with radio and the listening public nowadays???

    kimk–tried it once in Pomona (2009)….not bad the first few minutes….that was, until David came out…then all heck broke loose! ….luckily, hubby found an upper level area!

    Snippets???!!! Woot! Something new to spazzzz about!!!

  76. kimk says:

    sarahhazel so want to.. but could be the last words I ever mutter!!

    EEEEEK SNIPPETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–He will be 23 (!) when he returns and hopefully will be taken more seriously and get the respect he deserves in the music industry…..Meanwhile, it will be a long wait before we can see “the person he has become”……

  78. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–could be….but at least you’ve experience it…haha….the exhilaration of DAVID! DAVID! DAVID!
    (dang, miss those loud chants)

  79. sarahhazel says:

    Mb–Hi! Glad you guys came out alright after the accident.
    Those fan get-togethers sound really fun….haven’t been in one myself.

  80. kimk says:

    David + 23 + Spanish = KABOOM!!!!!

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

    kimk & sarahhazel – lol…don’t get me wrong — I typically love fun, cheesy love songs but I really think that lyric just takes the cake. I think they just couldn’t think of anything to say…poor songwriters.

    Hmm…I wonder if my husband ever got overwhelmed when I flipped my hair (that’s when I actually HAD hair, lol). I’ll have to ask him, haha!

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

    Sooo excited to hear snippets!! This morning I was singing Angel, just wondering how David will sing it. That used to be one of my favorite songs in college. Can’t wait!!

  83. Really a Lurker says:

    If you can, leave a comment at J-14, notice what the one comment there says!!

  84. Really a Lurker says:

    Excerpt from the J-14 article:

    “Through the dramatic verses, David packs his shoes and shirt into his rollaboard suitcase and finally walks out the door, symbolizing him stepping away from his fans for a while. But he reassures everyone, “I’ll never go far away from you.” “

  85. lct#DA2014 says:

    really a lurker, J-14 hasn’t done an article on David in years so this is big! Please leave a comment – I’m running out of different name combinations….

  86. kimk says:

    lct left a comment.. hopefully other fans will leave a nice lil post too!
    all they want to know is what you think of..
    David Archuleta!!

    lol well duh!!

  87. lct#DA2014 says:

    Ah, thanks Kimk! He’s getting so much buzz right now and hopefully this will lead to some good PR for his upcoming album!

  88. kimk says:

    ksf lol I know.. pretty sure they are just looking at the pretty faces and such and couldn’t care less what they are saying.
    rofl kind of like the older ladies these days.. guessing that Magic Mike movie will be a hit by all the buzz on WWTT about it.
    seems ladies of all ages have gone boy crazy!!

  89. kimk says:

    lct one happy camper here with most things so far… hope it keeps up!!

  90. Really a Lurker says:

    lct – left a comment, they had nice things to say in the article, too. Hopefully, other magazine will pick it up.

  91. Really a Lurker says:
  92. lct#DA2014 says:

    Great ReallyaLurker! They were always kind to David back in the days! Have you read any of the youtube comments. They rile me up but I try my best to leave some of the negativity out! 🙂

  93. kimk says:

    speaking of David and him maybe recording in Spanish when he gets back.. Stefano has a single out I’m On A Roll and he just released it in Spanish. they do play the English version on the radio and yes while lol it is nothing like what David would record I guess there is a market for Spanish pop songs too? hope the market increases and of course David records a whole CD in Spanish!

  94. Really a Lurker says:

    **sorry, blog about Disney Channel***

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

    kimk – LOL Magic Mike!! My husband and I were just talking about that movie. The women in his van pool were going bananas over the guys…and I must admit you can’t help but notice…lol! I will not go see it though…it’s just the principle of the thing. Plus, I’ve got all I need at home 😉

  96. kimk says:

    ksf ROFL!!

  97. glitter*girl says:

    none of those guys in Magic Mike are as cute as our david 🙂

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

    kimk 😛

    glitter*girl – umm…David is cute but…gotta give credit where credit is due…they got other things going on, lol.

  99. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    Great post today 🙂
    Loved that write-up lct posted from Funny Girl. She wasn’t the only one who cried after the announcement. It took a few hours for me, but the next night, I bawled in bed for about four hours and cried a little more the next day. It’s very hard to deal with the loss of someone or something that’s been a part of your norm for so long. Even though I knew he wouldn’t be gone for good, it was still hard. I’m at peace now, even though I still think of him every day and wonder how he is. I know he’ll be okay.

    Sarahhazel, re: the Pomona show, were you up on that riser that was over the ramp that David used to run up on stage(left-hand side of the stage)? If so, I was right there with you. Mom and I didn’t feel like being squished, even though I would’ve loved to be close enough to ‘touch his hand’ 🙂

    Hope we get BEGIN. snippets soon. Dying to hear his take on these songs 🙂

  100. I just got home from work and what a great post Pastel. I have to go and read all the buzz after i read comments and leave a comment on all of them.
    I just received my bracelet and a small photo of David, I’m so excited. I also need to go vote and view MV’s.

  101. sarahhazel says:

    Charlotte–not sure what area you’re talking about but we were at the balcony looking thing, left side if you’re facing the stage….had to climb the stairs and it’s near the restrooms!
    Anyway, it was a fun show, wasn’t it?…and a packed venue….well, considering the size…haha….

  102. By the way THANK YOU M LYNNE for my bracelet.

  103. kimk says:

    ksf yet again.. LOL!

    yeah David is cute..

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

    kimk – lol…he is cute…maybe we can revisit this discussion in a few years…only time will tell how “Magic Mike mature” David gets, haha!

  105. kimk says:

    ksf lol like never. but I wouldn’t mind the convo.

  106. Charlotte says:

    Sarahhazel, I remember the balcony area. It was above the bar counter in the back, if I’m remembering right. We thought about going up there(mom’s not a crowd person), but I wanted to be close for pics. From where you were, we were along the wall on the left. Picture where David ran up and on to the stage. There was a riser-like ramp over the walk way he ran up. My mom and I were there along with a few other people. That was a fun show, my first David show so you can probably guess how over the moon I was. I was on air the whole day and for a few days afterward 🙂

  107. kimk says:

    @Salamahafifi: BEGIN. by @DavidArchie will be released in Singapore August 7th. 🙂

    this means folks will hear and get BEGIN before us in the states will get in.. we will know the scoop!!!!!

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

    kimk – I should clarify — by “Magic Mike mature” I’m referring strictly to the physique, not the Chippendale behavior, lol! And, with all the exercising he does…at some point its gonna show no matter how he may try to cover up 🙂

    Has anyone heard from supergrandjudie? I don’t think I’ve seen her here for a few days now.

  109. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I think yesterday when I tried to post my screen caps of the various “This Christmas” performances, nobody saw all of them because they hadn’t been moderated. So, I’ll post a couple at a time, if there’s no objection. I think more than two in a post (twitpics) get moderated.

    sarahhazel I think the Philippines and Malaysia? just didn’t know the date.

    ksf lol won’t matter what he has.. not ever going to see any of it. even if he went on DWTS he wouldn’t go Derek Hough on us. my guess the guy will never even go swimming without his shirt on.

  121. Really a lurker says:

    Singapore is the same time as Manila – 12 hours later Eastern time. We could hear August 6.

  122. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–love your TC screencaps…..esp. Mr. Flirt 😉

  123. kimk says:

    can’t stop watching this.. love this acoustic Somewhere Only We Know by Lifehouse.
    would die if David went acoustic with his version!!!


  124. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Westbury “This Christmas” screencaps
    There, all done. There are a few others, but I picked out my favorites.

  125. kimk says:

    Really a lurker YES!!! Manila time too! 😀

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

    kimk – i know and that’s a good thing, lol. Just being silly. That’s what makes him so different. I hope he never changes.

  127. kimk says:

    Janel lol Mr. Flirt!

  128. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–you’re right, won’t matter…but it’s OK…for me, modest is still hottest (and smexiest!)

  129. kimk says:

    ksf now.. I did say we would never see him in shorts and then poof there he was playing BB with his momma. so what is that saying.. Never Say Never!

  130. Janel aka Nellie says:

    sarahhazel, he points at a few girls in the audience and raises those eyebrows up and down. LOL. You put that with the “look” he gives Anya several times in NA, the girls will melt.
    Can you imagine, when he finds the girl of his dreams, knowing Spanish better, then serenating her with the look and the eyebrows? She’ll be a puddle on the sidewalk. LOL

  131. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sorry, serenading her in Spanish, must clarify!

  132. glitter*girl says:

    the person david becomes and brings back to us may be very different from the david we know today. could be very exciting 😉

  133. Charlotte says:

    kimk, re: your post at 7:24 pm, if he ever goes swimming to begin with. I dunno that he does.
    I agree with Sarahhazel. Modest is definitely hottest when it comes to David 🙂

  134. Charlotte says:

    Janel, oh to be that extremely lucky girl he serenades and gives melting looks to. Latin heart throb indeed 😉

    glitter*girl, true. It’ll be interesting to see how he’s changed when he comes home.

  135. kimk says:

    sarahhazel David is a wonderful sweet young man.. would be odd if he did any of that for sure.
    not sure how I really see him.. lol I guess kind of like a cross between a living teddy bear and one lol what did Rapport say.. hunka hunka burnin love kind of guy?
    very odd indeed!
    who knows what 2014 and 23 will bring.. looking forward to see whatever that is for sure!

  136. kimk says:

    if he wants to cover his list of things he wants to do in his life he might have to.. swimming with sharks you have to get wet.
    and hopefully not eaten.

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

    kimk – yep that’s true, lol. But, I don’t think he’d have to be uncovered in any way to notice a change. For instance, my husband is NEVER uncovered, but the fact that he works out is very obvious to anyone who meets him. At some point you just can’t really hide it…and you don’t even have to be huge. That’s what I mean…not AT ALL saying that David should be immodest at ANY time, lol. I think the Magic Mike reference was misleading. Sorry!

    And, I do agree sarahhazel & Charlotte — modest is hottest…for everyone really.

  138. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–oh yeah, she better be forewarned of that potentially deadly Archustare!

  139. Really a lurker says:

    Right now my daughter is at Downtown Disney in Anaheim. She texted me to say they are playing the Other Side of Down there. Isn’t that one of the signs of ODD!??

  140. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–he won’t get too wet cuz he’ll be wearing those scuba diving stuff for sure!

  141. kimk says:

    ksf I guess but lol I just can’t see in my minds eyes David very muscular.. but who knows you won’t see me complaining!!

  142. glitter*girl says:

    it will also be very interesting to see how many of us fans are still here in spring 2014.

  143. kimk says:

    sarhhazel a wet suit.. lol was so hoping The Thing was either Anya or Eula saving him while they were out scuba diving. boy talk about an active imagination!

  144. glitter*girl says:

    and the way things are always changing it’s possible david could be back before then.

  145. kimk says:

    glittergirl will be interesting.. my guess not as many as there are right now. but dang I sure hope I am DEAD WRONG!

  146. sarahhazel says:

    Really a lurker–lol…I think it is….but is she a fan or she just wanna make your ODD worse? 😉

  147. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello! Long day at the beach….but a great time had by all! Checking in to see what I missed!

    Love to see all the BUZZ…..even Paris Hilton!! lol Hope this continues for BEGIN. Hoping for some snippets soon….will get things stirred up! EXCITED!

    Well Olympic trials and Tour de France preview….LOVE my sports! bbl

  148. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–never can tell what’s gonna happen to the fan base….since it’s like “survival of the fittest” in the Archuuniverse now till 2014….but I just hope he still continues his music career….that’s all I’m wishing for.

  149. Really a lurker says:

    Sarahhazel – she’s a fan, she’s seen him more times than me. She’s the one who gave him that green spider looking shirt he wore lots of times in 2009. She met Shelley in the limo from the airport to the hotel in 2009 for a concert & VIP in Phoenix. She flew in from Anaheim when she worked at Disney. She downloads everything at midnight when it comes out. She has more David music than I do. Yep, she’s a fan..

  150. kimk says:

    Don’t Give Up
    John Legend
    Herbie Hancock


  151. Charlotte says:

    kimk, I’d forgotten that he has swimming with sharks and scuba diving on his bucket list. He’d have to swim and get wet then.
    And if he does, we better get pics 😉

  152. sarahhazel says:

    Really a lurker–So awesome you can share your David love with a family member who’s truly a fan!…I’m the only one with ODD in my family but I’m happy they support my fangirling!

    sarahhazel, you and I are in the same boat. I’m the only one with ODD in my family, too. My mom enjoys his concerts(thank God, since I try to go to one every year and I need her to drive), but neither she or my sister are certifiably ODD like I am.

  155. sarahhazel says:

    Charlotte–certifiably ODD…lol…I like that!

  156. Charlotte says:

    sarahhazel, me, too 🙂

    Got my David bracelet today. Thank you to those who worked hard to give us these sweet treasures 🙂

  157. neneng says:

    Got my bracelet today too!!! Thank you M. Lynne for this wonderful gift!!

  158. VaBeachArchie says:

    Charlotte, sarahhazel….only one in my family and friends that has ODD! My daughter and my best friend, Betsy will go to concerts because they know how much it means to me! Betsy has gone to the last three…..she’s coming around! lol

    Hey glitter-girl and sarahhazel… ….I will be there for the long haul…..Spring of 2014 is not too far off….Happy 90th day of service….I miss you David James Archuleta…..Miss Vicki

  161. Miss Vicki says:

    BTW ….I came up with another name for David’s colonge….”Hush Cats” or “Eau d’Archuleta”……Miss Vicki

  162. Miss Vicki says:

    Hey VABeachArchie….Was at a conference at VA Beach today….What a lovely day….Too bad I was in a conference room all day…..Would have loved to be on the boardwalk…..Miss Vicki

  163. Miss Vicki says:

    I am the only one I know who has ODD….VABeachArchie….Is your friend Betsy the petite lady with the short red hair…. I think I met her in Stroudsburg…Miss Vicki

  164. dailylurker says:

    Wow new director’s cut of “Forevermore”. Me likey! 🙂 So excited! Can’t wait to get BEGIN. ! So happy that David is getting tons of buzz for ING.

    I met David years ago but I don’t remember what he smelled like, lols. I didn’t hug him, too scared, haha. Just had him signed my cd and act a fool in front of him. He looked really cute in person of course.

    And Jazzy was right about what I was talking about in the last thread about the Javid saga. lols Anyway keep up the great work ksf, I am enjoying it a lot!

    On a side note I’m loving the new Casey Abrams cd. One of the songs called “Stuck in London” is funny. One of the lines remind me of David. “Eating mangos in a mango tree.” hahah….Ok I’m stretching it, so I guess that is my ODD.


  165. Miss Vicki says:

    Hey dailylurker….Love “Stuck in London”……I always liked Casey Abrams….such a fun soulful song…..And yes, eating mangos in a mango tree reminds my of David….Miss Vicki

  166. Miss Vicki, I will be here for the long haul too. Unless God has other plans for me. Thats the only thing that would stop me. Your right, its not that far off. I,m a hair dresser, i have ladies that come in once a month for color faithfully and thats when i know its one more month gone.

  170. Pickles says:

    Hola everyone. Yes there is a Spanish music market and radio stations too and billboard top Latin hits . One of the few reasons why I was happy that David is serving in Chile is because he is going to speak Spanish when he comes back! My dream is to hear him in a Spanish station one day. One day one day ……

  171. Pickles says:

    Really a lurker thanks for bringing that up I want to know what cook said about david

  172. Miss Vicki says:

    Hey VaBeachArchie…..Someone took a picture of us in front of the theater in Stroudsburg…..I think you and Betsy were in it as well as our friends Betty Paciocco and her daugther, Susan who live in New Kent, VA……….Does anyone have a copy of that pic????….I would love a copy!!!! I have Betty and Susan’s phone number and address if that helps…..Goodnight….Miss Vicki

  173. Really a lurker says:

    Pickles – I do too, you need to register with their magazine to read their article. I’m up later than I should be so I can’t right now. Thought others might. Maybe whoever reads can post here.

  174. Janel aka Nellie says:

    The advantage of having my ISP go down is I got some of my stuff cleaned from Camporee and my kitchen cleaned. Disadvantage, in pain again. Dang.
    Oh well, cleaned to David music…advantage.
    Tired…disadvantage. Of course it is almost 11 PM, that could have something to do with it too.

  175. Pickles, Hi! Your right, there is alot of in the spanish music market. I think David would do great there too. Las muchachitas would eat him up. Hes a cutie and one that can sing too.

    I love how she said that! It is true for some reason we all discover David.I hope more people discover David and feel what we feel.
