More TOSOD Prelude to Release 2010 Memories~ A Day In The Life

On October 4th, 2010, David was a busy busy guy!! He had made his way to NYC for the release of “The Other Side Of Down” the following day. There were interviews, photo ops, signings, and David graciously allowed Pop Eater Mag. to follow him around throughout day and convey the entire experience to us with photos, a video, and a detailed article.

Emily Tan, the author, had quite the day with David, and he left his signature watermark on her heart. Impressed with him..completely; she shared her admiration beautifully!

As he strolled into Jive studios around noon, he instantly changed the vibe of the room. Dressed casually in dark denim, a gray T-shirt, a royal blue sweater and a pair of broken-in shoes, Archuleta’s smile beamed. He greeted everyone with a handshake and a glimpse of his pearly whites, making it clear that he’s the same sweet boy that fans fell in love with in 2008.

This was a WONDERFUL article and re cap of the day and I loved re-reading it yesterday. click below to read the entire piece! Doesn’t this photo remind you of the bts beauties that Kari takes/shares with us?

David’s Visit With Jim Cantiello At MTV

Another interview that day was with @JambaJim at MTV. The interview was poignant and heartfelt  (sprinkled with humor). Definitely worth re-watching. So many of the things David shared about writing TOSOD, his music, and feelings  2 years ago seem even more relevant today. That boy is sure a wise one while he’s able to laugh at himself as well. Did he really say “cheesy??”  Hey, and what about that jean jacket???  Magnificent!

Click below to watch the 3 part interview videos!

“I want people to know that things can change for the better and that there is hope despite the struggles you may be having…”  “There’s always something to be happy and grateful about no matter what you’re going through~”

* * * * * *

The AP Interview!

I’ll share one more bit of “EPICNESS” from October 4th, 2010. David’s interview with AP that day is another one of my all time favorites. Unhurried, unrushed, full of detail,  memories, and memorable moments. Cristobalite4126 condensed this ~30min. interview into two videos. In video 1, David talks about his quick thrust into fame and how it’s effected his life and what he’s hoping to do with his music…his desire to create music with substance. In part 2, David shares his feelings about fame vs having a “more normal” late teen tears, and about doing what you love despite the difficulties.  “We have the most control of our attitude and that’s what we can change the most..people pay attention to how you handle things…” Listen closely again to what he says about family…*tears* what a guy!!  Sit back and enjoy~

And Here’s Part 2:

I’m guessing Kalei will have an additional plethora of memories from TOSOD release day tomorrow on the 2 year anniversary!! Stay tuned!

    Jhen – I wore the first album out and will probably do the same with this new one too!

    pocoelsy – I don’t compare Bruno to David as their styles and vibes are so completely different. I listen to them for different reasons and quite honestly Bruno makes great music… I don’t need any other reason than that! 🙂

  27. glitter*girl says:

    hi linda~ yeah i got one of the bad DMs from u but i knew it wasn’t from u so i didn’t open it! yeah u could just delete your acct and start a new one i think but u may not have to do anything besides warning your followers not to open those DMs. not sure tho.

  28. tami lyn says:

    linda~ yeah i think just changing your password should be good enough. good luck!

  29. kimk says:

    Linda try changing your password. that is what I did.

  30. kimk says:

    waves hi!! 🙂

    goodness me.. that top pic and the one from this vid??! 😯

  34. Thank you all for your help, my grandson is coming in a few to change my password for me. I let all my followers know on tweeter not to open any DM from me until further notice. This is my first time ever been hacked, scary!!!

  35. sarahhazel says:

    Haven’t seen that (Skype) mish pic… 😮

  36. Martha says:

    kimk – yeah, the old buzz cut. Looks like he was in someone’s home rather than an internet cafe.

  37. sarahhazel says:

    “Soon” probably means any day this month. 😐

  38. Carmela says:

    LOL Kimk, Holy Moly peanut butter!

  39. Carmela says:

    Well I listened to both CD’s a few times now. Very happy with my purchases. I don’t care even that it’s not Christmas yet. 🙂 Sad that I wasn’t as devoted a fan when he was doing concerts for those CD’s. I guess I’ll have something to look forward to when he comes home from his mission. Now I can’t wait for Forevermore to get here.

  40. sarahhazel says:

    Hi josie! 🙂

    I’m sooo in LOVE with Fall!!! It’s certainly the most wonderful time of the year…the weather, the holidays, the food. If I wrote songs I’d write a song about it. Lol. I think I’d call it “Falling for Fall.” 😛

  47. kimk says:

    Carmela along with the cds are his live performance videos that are crazy fabulous! really think we will be very happy come 2014!

    sarahhazel lol I flip out when he sang or talked in Spanish before he left.. almost like it is his destiny!? like he was born to!!
    or in other words I’m toast.

  48. kimk says:

    Janel dm’d ya.

  49. Martha says:

    Janel – emailed you

  50. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Good afternoon everyone- Love the post and that Hanne-Naree photo is to die for. That AP video interview was amazing. David is the sweetest heart in the world. I got a DM from Linda and clicked on the facebook link but my security came in and told me not to go there. The last time I changed my twitter password. I didn’t this time. hope it’s okay. My scan showed no threat now.

  51. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi ksf- What’s up? Missed you.

  52. ksf says:

    Hi sgj! 🙂 Missed you guys too and glad to be chatting today. I’ve been busy but productive. Looking forward to the season 🙂 How have you been?

  53. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf- I’m fine. Finally getting ready to go back to New Jersey. It’s still 80 some degrees here in Maryland. Guess I’m going to miss Fall and go right into winter soon. Time is going quickly though. I went to your blog the other day. I see you still have “I’m Not A Writer” up. Is chapter 24 the end or will you continue some day? So thankful for the story you’ve written so far. It was fun reading your love story. You have done a terrific job.

  54. ksf says:

    sgj – You’re right…time is flying. We’ve had a couple of cooler fall-like days here in Atlanta but today it’s in the low 80’s so I’m still anticipating the real Fall weather. I haven’t updated the blog in a long time but I will update it and finish it. Chapter 24 is not the end. I’ll keep you posted 🙂

  55. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf- Thanks, that’s great to know. Take your time. 🙂

  56. sarahhazel says:

    Pastel ‏@pastelpastel

    @davidarchie @kariontour Fans remember! And its Jazzy’s birthday next week =lots of Archuleta birthdays in October!

  57. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–Falling for Fall….I love that title! 🙂

  58. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–you’re gonna continue Javid?!….Cool!!!

  59. sarahhazel says:

    Ooopsss….something came up….BBL!

  60. Connie@Toronto says:

    OMGosh!!!! those eyes are really hypnotizing me 😀 Thanks to Hanne for the nice edit. I really enjoyed watching “A day in the life of David Archuleta” I hope to see more of like that when he return #2014. And the interview specially the part that he said he would like to be there for his brother and sisters while they’re growing up. I really admire him for his family values no matter what this music industry brought him. Very mature at a very young age. I’m happy for him and his family cos he knows what matters most is the family.
    Thanks to you all for the daily updates, collages and videos of the past that keep us reminiscing while he is away. It’s very much appreciated. 🙂 🙂

  61. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – lol thanks 🙂

  62. Anita says:

    HOLY MAN, that top pic is stunning!! Those eyes!!!! I love the second pic also. David looks even more mature in that one.

  63. Martha says:


    Does anyone know where the pic I posted above was taken? Here it is again:


  64. Martha says:

    …And when also, if you know..THANKS!

  65. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, I know of a pic that would be a good one for FOD lead pic maybe, unfortunately I don’t know how to embed it so I’ll try to describe it, it’s also one of my most favorite pics of David. It is from J-14 magazine couple years ago, it was an 8 by 10 poster and it was taken somewhere where there were signatures behind him on a wall, he was sitting down and wearing a reddish brown v neck t-shirt with a black, brown and white plaid shirt over it. Do any of you know which one I’m talking about? Sorry that’s the best I can do! I love this pic because he is smiling so big and his eyes twinkle. Off to work, talk to you guys later! Btw, I’d never seen that Skype pic before! So glad he can do that a few times a year!

  66. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- It looks like that photographers in the Philippines. His name started with an A. He really liked David a lot. I ‘m just guessing.

  67. Am still at work. So nice to hear David singing Crush on radio.,

  68. Sgj did you get my message that my tweeter has been hacked? I changed my password, but have to wait till I get home to verify on email. So don’t open any Dm from me until I get it fixed.

  69. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- I got a DM from you. I went to The link and security told me to not go there.

  70. kimk says:

    Martha going to guess recording of CFTH in Utah.

  71. Candy says:

    Martha-I think thats the studio in Davids house, saw a pic once think Poppa FOD posted looked similar

  72. Martha says:

    sgj and kimk – Thanks! I love this pic, was just wondering the details behind it. Christmas lights are up in the studio.

  73. Candy says:

    kimk-I think youre guess is right, Richard said they hand christmas lights to get in the holiday mood when they recorded CFTH it was July!

  74. Candy says:

    *hung-danged auto correct!

  75. Sgj ok But was there a pic when you went there of the. Couple. I couldn’t get in either, just saw the avi

  76. Martha says:

    Thanks, Candy – I think you all are right, it was the recording of CFTH.

  77. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- That DM with the man and her w as there. Just the picture.That was okay. The next DM only said- how did they get you on film- and put a facebook,com link . I clicked on the link and security told me not to go there.

  78. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- HaHa I didn’t even notice the Christmas lights. I went back to look again and now I’m wondering what is that under the lights. It looks like the devil. 😉

  79. Martha says:

    sgj – it has antlers, maybe its a reindeer lol

  80. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hi all! 🙂

    Lucy, I know the exact pic you’re talking about – it was my favourite for a long time…but now every pic is a fav pic. Don’t know whats up with that – HD camera’s these days or something? lol Or did the guy just get even more photogenic? lol

    I’m on my phone but i’ll see if I can hunt around for a link. I’ve got ‘Swrv’ in my head – was that the name of the place or something? Anyway, i’ll see if I can check.

  81. oinkiers says:

    Good Evening everyone!!!

  82. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha-A weird looking deer. Okay, if you say so. 😆

  83. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hmmm…i posted the links Lucy but my comment is ‘awaiting moderation’ at the moment. I just googled ‘david archuleta picture swrv’ and they all came up.

  84. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- I looked again, it has hands, fingers and feet. 😆 😆

  85. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi oinkiers and Shanny. 🙂

  86. Martha says:

    sgj – just guessing, who knows what it is lol

  87. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Haha, can’t seem to post the links without having to ‘await moderation’.

  88. Martha says:

    shanny – you can only post one link at a time; it won’t let you do two or more.

  89. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- I know, I’m just kidding. It is unusual though.

  90. Martha says:

    sgj – yeah, someone got artistic haha

  91. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Hi SGJ! Haha! Never seen that CFTH pic before. Is that in David’s home? It’s a large room for a house. I always imagined a room about the size of a secondary bedroom for their home recording studio. And no grand piano! . And yeah…that pic under the lights IS strange! lol

  92. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    Oh ok Martha, I thought 3 was the limit. Must have changed.
    Lets try one last time then…


  93. Martha says:

    shanny – I’ve tried two and it tells me “awaiting moderation”

  94. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- Speaking about pianoes, what kind was in David’s living room when he played it when he was younger? Was it a grand piano. I think he played “A Thousand Miles”.

  95. HanneDenmark says:

    Just stopping by before going to bed – it’s 12:30 am here in Denmark – to say THANK YOU for all your positive comments on Naree’s amazing photo – you’re the best <3

  96. Oh. So maybe that’s how I got hacked.

  97. Martha says:

    HanneDenmark – you do great work…thanks! 🙂

  98. Well gotta go back to work be back when I get off. See you later.

  99. kimk says:

    HanneDenmark thank you!!

  100. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hanne- Thank you! Your work is always amazing.

  101. sarahhazel says:

    Hanne–awesome stuff….very much appreciated! 🙂

  102. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- Those 2 DM’s were sent at 11:24a.m. and 11:34 a.m. this morning Oct. 4.

  103. kimk says:

    ksf you asked about Bruno Mars’ new song Locked Out of Heaven..
    think it is ok I like him and this sounds like it will do well.
    but lol my guess David will not be covering it.

  104. Shanny in australia #DA2014 says:

    SGJ – hmmm…not sure. I ‘ve got a picture in my mind of him singing A Thousand miles when he’s.younger and it appears to me he is sitting at a normal upright piano. But I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of him also singing at a grand when he was younger. We know he definitely has a grand in his lounge at home now because he’s done vlogs whilst sitting at it. 🙂

    Hanne, beautiful work – especially on the eyes! 🙂

  105. ksf says:

    kimk – hahaha! Yeah, you’re right about that! It’s such a provocative, sexy, mature song…great for times with the hubby!! 😉

  106. ksf says:

    kimk – lol…I doubt David could even listen to it without turning beet red 😯

    evening everybody, been lurking and really enjoy all your comments. learn something new everyday. will be going to Vermont for a few days. Hope everybody has a great week. Was just reading article on the fan scene The Voice, an interesting article on things we fans can do to keep David’s name out there. lots of things I never knew about, hope you can check it out, maybe all of you knew. Awesome post Joanie. Great post of the leading picture of David, so handsome.

    ksf-so glad to see you are back, missed you. Thanks to everybody who post all the info, and pictures, tweets for some of us who are not as talented as you!!!

    sarahhazel- Thank you for the YT video of David. I was on the phone with my daughter. She calls me on her way home for work. It’s an hour and twenty minute ride to her house from work so I keep her company.

    Shanny, thanks for your reply.
    Kimk- I haven’t heard Bruno’s song. Is it steamy??

Thanks sgj, I hope the weather holds out, the foliage I hope is still beautiful, it is so hard to hit it just right, Won’t have access to my computer so won’t be able to read comments here, guess I’ll have a lot of reading when I return, will miss my daily dose of FOD. Don’t always comment, but enjoy all of your comments.

  118. Janel aka Nellie says:

    This performance of A Thousand Miles at Myrtle Beach is a TV video, so steady camera the entire time. An amazing performance of the song. You can tell over the 4 years David has performed this song, he improved on the piano for it. Wonderful performance! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rsh3UIAw3Y

    My @DavidArchie picture of the day Utah Entertainment Award May 2011 http://twitpic.com/b12qxv

  121. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–Thanks…..watched EWTRTW (TV33 vid) too after that!…..MB concert is one of my fave David concert videos to watch…..Wished I was there!

  122. kimk says:

    supergrandjudie song really isn’t steamy.. very pop. but it is about sex.

  123. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kimk- I listened to it on You Tube just now. I only was able to hear some words. I heard the word sex and as to the song itself I didn’t care for his singing. Just so spoiled by David’s voice. Bruno sounded like he was shouting and still I couldn’t make out what he was saying.

  124. kimk says:

    sgj not his best way I saw it but bet will be a hit.

  125. josie says:

    ‘K. My delayed (and jumbled) thoughts on this a.m.’s conversation, lol…I guess Donny’s interview is one more thing I shouldn’t watch. It bothers me to think of the depression, loneliness & fears that D faces, all the time putting on a brave front. He’s said/done things that make me think he does fear becoming a regular joe…dreaming about having an audience of 30 ppl, d the “Falling Stars” lyrics “When you forget me, when you don’t remember my name. Not even a memory somewhere in the back of your brain…When it’s all said & done I’ll be just a speck in the galaxy..” I know that was s’posed to be about a girl, but still..I feel like he was saying more than that, I guess.

    Like Candy said, also, it seems like impossible expectations are placed on him sometimes, coming from all directions~himself, fans, the media, maybe even his worldview, I dunno. Life is hard enough without that kind of pressure. I wish he could hang out with me for awhile. lol. He’d be free to wear shorts in a variety of colors (:)); to outwardly express when he’s mad or sad; to say/do the wrong thing sometimes; watch ME say/do the wrong things ALOT; and realize that the peeps who count do NOT think any less of him. He would NOT be free, however, to wear colored contacts. I have to draw the line somewhere. lol.

    And…ngl, it IS a bonus that D’s gorgeous. One would have to be blind not to notice that. lol. But I’m strictly here ‘cuz I care about HIM. If he was a gorgeous jerk, or if the David that I saw WAS just an image~I’d have been gone 4 yrs ago. I don’t have much time for peeps who aren’t real. Why waste my time getting to know a facade, ya know? And the “macho, bad-boy” image that Hollywood wants? I understand why other peeps might like that. But again, I always think: (1) I wonder what that celebrity’s REALLY like; (2) If he IS that person, then God bless those who are willing to put up with him….Nope. I care about D ‘cuz I feel like I can relate to him. And because…I just do. That’s all.

  126. josie says:

    OMYGOSH, sorry that was so long!!!! lololol.

  127. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    josie 🙂 🙂

  128. kimk says:

    josie David doesn’t seem to want that huge stardom thing like Donny did etc like when he asked about radio play etc from MJ so wouldn’t worry too much. think it may be more the fans who want him to be on the radio and sell a lot.

  129. Martha says:


    Much clearer, you can see the dimple clearly:


  130. sarahhazel says:

    josie–Well-said!….I love D because of his talent/voice but more because of his character….then the looks are a nice bonus of course. I have faith he will be better and better at handling his celebrity as he gets older. He knows his priorities in life and his faith is strong and those will carry him well in whatever direction he goes career-wise and private life-wise.

  131. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–LOL….the dimple….thanks!….it is a better pic….love seeing that smile! 🙂

  132. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- Thanks, I love seeing his dimple more clearer. 😆 😆 😆

  133. Hi! I’m home from work. Still working on my tweeter acct so will let you guys know when i am back on tweeter. This has never happen to me before, don’t even know how it happened. i know Davids My Space got hacked not too long ago and he’s not even here.

  134. sarahhazel says:

    Here is the link to the TVDA blog that nora mentioned a while ago:

  135. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–I know, it kinda sucks when that happens….good luck on that!

  136. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ i think that weird DM thing that went around must be an automated program cuz it’s happened to me and lots of people. also happens on FB alot. if someone were to actually “hack” into your account they would be posting actual tweets coming from them but making it look like coming from u. so i think your account should be ok. just delete any DMs or posts that look suspicious and change your password. hope that helps.

  137. Ali says:

    Martha – I just noticed on that FB page that on the event poster someone had asked what they meant by “pop music” and the Centro JAS person answered “what pop music means is that Elder Archuleta will perform songs from his own repertoire.” Now, granted, that’s run through Google & Bing Translate lol but it seems that David will be doing some of his songs? Or maybe some songs like on BEGIN that are inspirational?

    That’s cool!

    P.S. D’awwww that dimple! Miss it. <3

  138. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- did you see my post. The 2 DM’s came in at 11:24a.m. and 11:34a.m. this morning. I didn’t log in yesterday. I worked all day. I wasn’t on the net. This is why I am so leary of the net. You have to be careful. Less info is best.Did you try to go into your profile on your twitter account. Just go there and change your password.

  139. Martha says:

    Ali – thanks for finding that! Ok, wish we could have a recording of the concert!!

  140. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–that’s what I thought….some songs from BEGIN. (or all of them?)…..what a treat for the peeps there!
    (dang, why am I getting sad again??? 🙁 )

  141. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–hopefully they won’t be too strict on phones and stuff…..we need NINJAS!

  142. sarahhazel says:

    Jedi4Life (^_^)* ‏@Jedi4Life

    @macalejandre Direk, what ever happened to the bunny suit @DavidArchie wore in Nandito Ako? Curious, po.

  143. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ also, great thing about twitter~when u have your friends following u they will usually alert u when someone weird is going on.

  144. Elysian says:

    sarahhazel- Your reaction to the Two Brother video, “…smiling, laughing, crying, scared, enlightened….what a moving story……felt like I was there in Chile,” was exactly like mine! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it!! Watching it made me feel closer to David because I imagine that he is having similar experiences on his mission. 🙂

  145. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Ali- That would be great. Lucky, Licky people. No wonder they are emphasizing only certain people can attend and reserve a seat. The house is going to be jammin. If only we could get a little glimpse of that night.

  146. glitter*girl says:

    oops~ i meant when something weird is going on

  147. Martha says:

    Ali – thats a good translation. Songs from his own repertoire.

  148. Elysian says:

    Joanie- Thank you for another Super- Duper post filled with fantastic David content! I especially love the lead photo, which is Gah-Gah Gorgeous!!!!! Thanks naree and HanneDenmark!!!

  149. Ali says:

    brb moving to chile real quick ;p

    lol you guys. i so so so would love to be there. but (as i think i said with the last show he did down there and i’ll say again) i’m so glad that he’s still singing and people there are getting to share in that gift. i’m not gonna be a complete martyr and say i don’t wanna be there but it makes me smile to know its happening at all. david and music go together like peanut butter and jelly.

  150. cq#DA2014 says:

    You said it Sarahhazel, indeed what a treat…so glad that he is doing a show. Keep those golden pipes tuned Mr. Archuleta!!!
    Oh, btw, thank you Joanie for the fabuloso Thursday post…top pic….gulp!! great job Hanne.

  151. Martha says:

    Ali – ITA

    What a joy its going to be for him. I bet he sings Bridge Over Troubled Water

  152. kimk says:

    oh man.. stink-a-roonis!!!!!

  153. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Ali- 😀 😀

  154. Martha says:

    “Elder Archuleta – BEGIN., Live”

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

    Hello Everyone! Stopping by for a little bit.
    Just saw that The people running the Official The Beav’s website were fined $1 million dollars for tracking kids 12 & under, collecting information on over 100,000 kids. Also collected illegal data for sites for Rhianna, demi Lavator & Selena Gomez. Very sad, do we have any privacy left, are we safe anywhere anymore?

    I never saw that pic of David talking on skype to Amber & Jazzy, gosh, his hair is really short,lol. Still very handsome though 😀 Anytime we can see that smile, its a good thing 😀

  156. Elysian says:

    ksf- If you are still here, I just wanted to tell you that I will be in Catalina this Christmas. My in-laws are taking my husband’s entire family on a 4 day cruise to Catalina and Ensenada. The first thing I thought of when I got the news was JAVID! LOL!

  157. Martha says:

    I guess he’ll be singing in English, not Spanish. Unless he’s translated the songs.

  158. Elysian says:

    Martha- I hadn’t seen that skype photo of David either! Thank you! It sweet to see him smile like that at the sight of his beloved sisters who, may I add, are growing into real beauties!

  159. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha- That’s the ticket, I like it!! 😀

  160. Elysian says:

    Beth- Wow! So disappointing! You would think that young kids would be off limits from marketers, but I guess they just see them as little sources of big income.

  161. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Beth & Elysian

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

    Hey Elysian! As smart as kids are with computers, there not as smart knowing who is a good person on the internet, whether their leading them astray or use them, like you said, for financial gain. Its sad.

    Hey supergrand!

  163. Martha says:

    I’m so happy for him I can hardly see straight 😯 ! To be able to sing his songs before an audience!

  164. josie says:

    Are we just assuming that “from his own repertoire” means songs from BEGIN, or is that actually what it means? kimk~ “stink-a-roonis”. lol.

  165. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    This is to everyone- Does anyone have the word ASK in red in front of http:// bar?? Never noticed that before. It also is before the next bar that says David Archuleta; Art PrizeE…

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

    supergrand, I dont see that.

  167. Elysian says:

    Hi supergrandjudie!!!!!!

    Beth- You are so right, technical proficiency and emotional maturity are two totally different things. People who use kids are the worst in my book!

  168. Ali says:

    josie – I just mentioned BEGIN as an example of the type of songs he might cover, if he were doing covers. It may also be his own songs. Or some other totally different songs. Not really sure.

  169. Elysian says:

    supergrandjudie- I don’t see it either. You are just special! 🙂

  170. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Elysian- I don’t know about special, it kinda bothers me. I’m going to go off and come back on again to see if it’s still there. BBL

  171. Ali says:

    martha made a good point about spanish too. i wonder if he’s doing pop, will he sing in spanish? maybe he’s learned some spanish pop songs? or spanish crush?? hahaha ohhhh the speculation! lol.

  172. sarahhazel says:

    Elysian–Yeah, it was a roller-coaster of emotions….Do hope David has a less harder time than those boys throughout his mission…..Can’t wait till he comes home. **sigh**

  173. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–saw that JB fan site news at Yahoo…..almost posted the link…..but I changed my mind.

  174. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Well I’m back and it’s still up there. Isn’t ASK a web site like Google? I have Google so now I’m really confused.

  175. angelbymyside says:

    Hanging at my hotel and they are blasting @DavidArchie in the lobby!

  176. angelbymyside says:

    Think my computer is melting…..that lead off pic is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  177. Ali says:

    supergrandjudie – that sounds like a toolbar that’s been installed. not sure what browser you’re using but you should be able to check for installed toolbars under view or toolbars or something similar.

  178. Martha says:

    Ali – could be he’ll translate. But alot of people in Chile apparently speak English.

  179. sarahhazel says:

    Maybe the Spanish version of Crush?!….oops, that probably won’t do…..or Spanish pop songs….LOL…..I really envy those peeps……Need to summon the ArchuNinjas!

  180. kimk says:

    Ali lol. there you go.. SPANISH CRUSH!!!!????


  181. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Angelbymyside- Wonder what hotel Jeff is in!!

  182. sarahhazel says:

    abms–LOL…wonder what hotel is that?

  183. kimk says:

    haven’t heard his voice in over 6 months…..

  184. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–If you’re lurking, pls. tell your friend attending the Chile event to give us a full recap….or better yet, pics and vids if allowed…..PLEASE!!!

  185. sarahhazel says:

    kimk– 🙁 😥

  186. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Ali- thanks dear for your help but I’m usually helpless when it comes to this computer. I think my best bet is to just log out and see what happens tomorrow.

  187. sarahhazel says:

    Well, I’m gonna be “on & off” FOD starting late tomorrow and the whole weekend….making a trip to visit my nephew and a few friends.

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

    Elysian, I agree.

  189. Ali says:

    supergrandjudie – good luck! if it is a toolbar, you’ll have to uninstall it for it to go away but maybe its just some kind of weird glitch. computers are funky machines lol.

  190. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Sarahhazel- Goodnight, have a safe trip. I won’t be on tomorrow either, I’ll be traveling home. Goodnight everyone. Sweet dreams to all. Goodnight dear David.

  191. Elysian says:

    sarahhazel- ITA with you about hoping David’s experience is less arduous. I just know that I could never cut it as a missionary. I’m too squeemish to deal with the bugs and less than sanitary conditions.

  192. Elysian says:

    Goodnight supergrandjudie and sarahhazel! I hope that both of you have safe and enjoyable trips! We’ll miss you here tomorrow!

    I have to go make dinner so have a wonderful evening everyone!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hey abms, good to see you, G’night 😀

  194. angelbymyside says:

    Hi guys! Can’t stop staring at that top pic!!! WOAH!!!!

  195. angelbymyside says:

    Night Beth! Hope you’re doing well.

  196. I’m so happy that David is doing a mini concert in Chile. Even if i can’t see and hear him at least i know that he is doing what he loves and this shows me that he must really miss it. Even if it is inspirational. Good for you David. Hope they all enjoy.

  197. Candy says:

    ABMS- HOT is right…HOLY CARP!!! Thats the Mother of all pictures!! It took me forever to recover enough to enjoy Joanies post! It went right in the vault!
    Can you imagine what he will look like at 24…

  198. Evening Everyone 🙂

    Thanks Joanie for the fab post… luckily that pic up top has David looking a bit askance cuz if his glance was straight on we’d all be in a puddle on the floor!!!

    I’ve always loved that 2 pt interview. Is he sure he’s not part Italian but I digress 🙂
    That interview clearly shows his inner workings…he’s deep, wise, genuine, honest, introspective, thoughtful and a SWEET HEART!!!!!!!

  199. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ I am afraid to imagine lol. BTW, did you see the winter forecast for our area? You had better have the snow shovel ready!

  200. Candy says:

    ABMS-What?? I thought it was supposed to be a mild winter… Im starting to really dislike snow!

  201. MaggieFOD says:

    The interview with MTV’s Jim Cantiello where David said he would like to make a music video for Elevator reminded me of this animated video that a KylieWyoti made. David even tweeted about this video! http://youtu.be/19fZHdS8BeY

  202. Martha, and Ali, thanks for your super sleuthing. Sometimes the translation given is incomprehensible but Ali, you were spot on…now wonder what he’ll sing at the youth concert ???

  203. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ No mild winter for these parts….above average snowfall! At least we won’t have to worry about concerts being cancelled or being caught in a snowstorm.

  204. Candy says:

    This will be the first Christmas in four years without a David concert…I know that sounds selfish, it had sort of become my David and BFF tradition. Traveling, spending time with dear friends, meeting new fans, and DAVID!!

  205. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ waaaaaah I will miss our annual Christmas trek to see David and our FOD friends! 🙁

  206. Candy says:

    ABMS- we will need to get together to reminisce, cry in our diet coke and celebrate all the good times we’ve been lucky to have.

  207. Candy and ABMS, I’ll never forget Stroudsburg…loved David’s concert and meeting the FOD peeps and present company included!!!!

  208. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ would be nice if there was a fan get-together somewhere close in early 2013.

  209. Candy says:

    me too ida-There is something extra special about a fan get-together during the holidays, it has a magical feel. Plus we get to see a show put on by the real Santa Claus!!

  210. angelbymyside says:

    idamae ~ Stroudsburg was a blast and I loved meeting you and your husband. Hoping we get to do it again in 2014!

  211. Candy says:

    ABMS- I would love that! By then we will be so David starved, a get-together will be what gets us through the rest of the time. Ok, Im totally depressing myself!

  212. This part of the yr reminds me of being on a rollercoaster inching closer to the apex and then careening down past Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years only to make the trip up to the top again getting closer to David and 2014!!!!

  213. NO, CANDY…no depressions …remember we’re on that Archucoaster getting closer to David and 2014 🙂 Thank heavens for this site!!!!

  214. Candy says:

    Oh Ida I agree, if it wasnt for this site, and fan friends…the time would be unbearable. I might be tempted to hop and plan and fly to oh say CHILE! 🙂

  215. Candy says:

    Gesssh danged typos *Hop a plane

  216. Candy, aka Chile con Carne…gotta love Sr Bestor. He mus.t keep David on his toes haha.

    ABMS, when’s the snow coming??? Gonna have 80 degree weather here tomorrow…not looking forward to the fluffy stuff 🙁

  217. LOL Candy, I think we all majored in deciphering after being on this site for so long

  218. Buenas noches, everyone!!!!

  219. Candy says:

    Night Ida-

  220. I just got my tweeter back, changed my password. I’m afraid to use it now.

  221. Janel aka Nellie says:

    DM’d you Candy

  232. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! CRAZY here this week…homecoming at the high school my son-in-law is AD for. BIG game tonight..and family leaves Saturday for New York to go on their cruise with David’s (SIL) family!

    Candy…Think the East coast Archies should have a fan meet up too! Gee, NEVER been to Chile!

    LOVE My Kind Of Perfect and Something Bout Love off TOSOD….ohhhh and Complain!


  233. ksf says:

    Good morning FOD! TGIF!! 😛

    nora – Lol…that’s great! Catalina sounds beautiful though I’ve never been there. Have a great time!

    sarahhazel & sgj – Have safe trips! I’ll also be traveling this weekend to see family in North Carolina. I’m not necessarily looking forward to another road trip — we just got back from Hilton Head last week. But, it’ll be good to spend time with the family.

    Enjoy your day everyone! 🙂

  234. sarahhazel says:


  235. kmb says:

    This is not David related, so please forgive me (a year ago I would have never thought to post this here, but things have changed). Anyway…

    MY BROTHER OPENED HIS MISSION CALL JUST NOW!!! It came in the mail today. He has been called to labor in the GEORGIA ATLANTA mission! He reports to the MTC on November 28th! That’s the Wednesday after Thanksgiving. Oh my gosh, I have no words.
