Continuing to hunker down

Hurricane Sandy was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone Monday evening, but it’s still carrying hurricane-strength winds as it surges toward the U.S. eastern seaboard.

The storm system’s pounding rain and strong winds are threatening a 1,300-kilometre region and up to 50 million people in several states.

Schools, businesses, transit systems and some highways were closed from Washington, D.C. to Boston. Train service across the U.S. Northeast was halted through Tuesday and about 10,000 domestic and international flights were cancelled.  Over the weekend, tens of thousands of people were ordered to leave coastal areas of New York, New Jersey and Delaware, while all 12 of Atlantic City’s casinos were closed.  The New York Stock Exchange also suspended operations Monday, while the United Nations shut down.

The storm has been extremely disruptive along the eastern coastline, washing out beaches, boardwalks and coastal buildings in its way.  This storm is said to be   more dangerous than Hurricane Irene hitting the same area only 14 months ago.

Here at FOD, together with the entire FanFamily, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.  Continue to check in to let us know how things are going.  We are now, and will continue to be, with all of you!

So until the worst is over, and the clean up starts, take the advice of officials and stay in a safe place.  Hopefully surrounded by loved ones.  Read.  Sing.  Write.  Listen to music.  And each other

Just hunker down.  David will show you how 🙂 …….

Easy peasy, and THAT’S how we get Dave to #1.  Doesn’t he deserve to be there?  Well, of course!  And thank you!

Eventful Updates!

Eventful sends me periodic updates that they are keeping an eye out for concerts for my artist of choice.  Sadly, I know the result all too well.

Eventful is one of those sites that keeps track of fan concert requests and links to ticket purchases.  Click on the pick below to sign up to “demand” your artist of choice aka David Archuleta when he returns.  Does it make a difference? I honestly don’t know, maybe someone can provide more info in comments, but I get a kick seeing the number of people who what David to perform in Toronto!  One day hopefully.

 And if you look on the image gallery at top left, there are a few pix from Fans of David media files.   Love this one!  But who took the picture?

* * * * *

“Wait!  Is that HIM?”

You know that feeling.  There you are busy running from errand to errand when, all of a sudden, a familiar voice is heard through the overhead sound system.

It’s. HIM!

I gathered a few recent audio sightings from Twitter.  It’s exciting just reading them!

and today my BEGIN. fave!

I’d cry too.  Especially if I heard Broken.  But how did that come about?

….that manager deserves a David Archuleta T Shirt!  Or something…but what?

Lisa gets our GO GETTER OF THE DAY award!  Well, no, there isn’t such a thing, but if there was, Lisa would get it!   Spread the love and joy of David’s music!  You go gurl!

These tweets reminds me of my favourite scene in the movie That Thing You Do where the band members have just cut their first single, and they hear it on the radio for the first time.   If you’ve never seen this movie, worth watching 🙂

And here, at 1:15, at a brunch in Providence RI, David talks about hearing himself on the radio.

Fun interview. David seems very relaxed, and so excited about the prospect of his solo tour for CFTH.  This interview includes a gorgeous happy birthday too!

Second rescheduled concert 3 years ago! Providence RI!

The second of the rescheduled Demi/David (or Lovachuleta) concerts was held 3 years ago in Providence RI (see how this all weaves together lol).  Some epic/classic vids at the tour stop.

Like this one.  Your Eyes Don’t Lie sets the standard here.  INTENSE!!!  I miss this song, and never got enough of it on the tours.  If you only watch one of the vids below, this is the one!

My Hands, Providence.  Again, David gives an amazing performance here.

Don’t Let Go. Wowza!

Ending with the massive Zero Gravity.

    Thanks, Janel!

  13. granny Lyn from South Africa says:

    hi Pastel thanks for another super post
    hi to all the US fod, hope you are all well and keeping safe. Have been watching CNN and wow it is amazing how much damage has been done by Sandy. Love the top pic, Pastel, I wonder if David will ever come to South Africa, would be a dream come true. But then he would have to come to Port Elizabeth which is not really on the list of venues that overseas artists choose to visit. Ho hum, a girl can dream

  21. roseinmaryland (#DA2014) says:

    We were blessed as Sandy made its way into shore last night. Our power stayed on and the trees remained standing. The wind was crazy all day and part of the night. I have never experienced wind like that, so constant, no let up until about 1:oo am. Like I said, here in Middle River, Maryland were blessed and my heart goes out to the ones without power this morning. It’s still raining but the wind has died down. Everyone take care.

  22. Martha says:

    New York City this morning:


    “there’s always a rainbow after the rain” Things will get better.

  23. Grannycrush says:

    Thanks, Pastel, for another great post! You guys are amazing.

    Has anyone heard from Candy? I’m thinking she probably has no power. My daughter in Arlington MA has power, but many of her neighbors do not. Trees are down all over, but their trees are all intact. No school again for her boys. I have been watching the news and the damage is frightening. So sad for all the people involved and all of the losses.

  24. pocoelsy says:

    Sarahhazel, whewww just finished put in some vote for D at K-zone haha some of the questions I don’t even have the slightest idea lol but have to answer them all then only my answers go through !!! never seen that pic “one of the guys” yeah just wonder the same thing, he looks like a regular guy there .. a super cute regular guy!!!

  25. pocoelsy says:

    Sarahhazell, how many time a person can be daiddd haha that pic you posted at 9:30 haha yes good thing it’s blurry or else!!!

    Martha, such a beautiful morning after the storm!!! Rainbow <3

  26. sarahhazel says:

    Martha–thanks for the vid of Lupe singing with the choir….they sound wonderful.

  27. sarahhazel says:

    Nice to see that pic of rainbow over NYC.

    Hope we hear from Candy soon.

    Btw, I admire David Archuleta’s fanbase. Idk, I just had to mention ’cause I couldn’t help but compare fanbases.

  32. Good morning My Archie family. My first thought this morning was i hop everyone is safe and well. It makes me sad to see how Sandy has devastated so many places. My prayers still go out to everyone.

    Pastel great top pic. but does David ever take a bad picture, i’ve never seen one, or maybe i’m just partial.
    Sarahhazel, glad you ok, love your tumblers.

    Hope Candy is allright, I miss SGJ, last i heard from her they were on thier way to Maryland.

    I have to get ready for work, but will be lurking all day on my cell. Have a nice David day.

    EH #7 MYX DT10 & #11 Hit Chart…..VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!!!!

  34. OoO says:

    wow those #’s are nasty to me. I have a question if someone could answer me I voted on myx quite often in a day maybe every hr 3 or 4 times each and it said thank you for voting every time is that means all my votes officially counted? But once in a while it will not let me do again.

  35. VaBeachArchie says:

    Sarahhazel…That pic at 9:30….HOTCHULETA! Where has that been hiding? lol Thanks also for all the lnks to all the David goodies!

    Martha…Great vid of Lupe performing with the childrens choir in SLC! Thanks!

    Off to restock my junk food…ate way toooooo much during the storm! Nervous energy at work! lol

  36. sarahhazel says:

    OoO–I didn’t know it lets you vote more than once cuz I only cast one vote a day….hmmm, but the next votes are probably not counted since it says “one vote per user per day.” ❓

  37. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I don’t know if this site has been shared before but it gives a positive light on David and his decision to go on a misson, etc. Click on all the tabs to read things from a few different people. http://davidarchuletamormon.com/mission/elder-david-james-archuleta-mormon-mission

    VaBch–haha….Hotchuleta indeed….looks a like a papparazzi pic or a fan snapping away with his/her cellphone…..too bad can’t find a clear one.

    LOL….junk food was tempting to eat during yesterday’s storm….but I resorted to David songs and videos instead!

  41. jeani/ut says:

    I recall someone saying they like David’s voice but don’t like his music. I thought at the time, I wonder what music they don’t like, The songs on Idol, the original album, the second album, Christmas music, Forevermore album, Begin. Hmmmmmmmm. He doesn’t have a certain music. He has done so many different things. Silly statement by someone who doesn’t know very much about him.
    Hoping Easterners are safe!!!!

  42. sarahhazel says:

    Ivy ni Finny ‏@ivyvictorio

    @GwenPo And I’m not even a big David Archuleta fan 😉 The sort of new fanbases are really disappointing and David’s is just.. genuinely nice

  43. sarahhazel says:

    jeani/ut–good question!….a missionary in Chile said that too in a blog posted yesterday….LOL….

  44. sarahhazel says:

    meant….posted *in the comments* yesterday…..

  45. kimk says:

    Jeani maybe he likes rock and roll?

  46. kimk says:

    David has more a pop thing going on.. Begin and Forvermore I would classify as easy listening as he himself said.

  47. sarahhazel says:

    Rock music…..that’s it!…..David should do rock music too….haha…. 😉

  48. sarahhazel says:

    Victoria Hornღ♫♕❀✿♥☆ ‏@LadyVmusic

    Sometimes pieces of stardust fall into our emails inbox brightening our day. @DavidArchie 🙂

    Maybe she got an email from D yesterday?

  49. It could be that that person who doesn’t like Davids music is more into hard rock or rap music, you never know. There is music for everyone. Mine is pop and David music. I thought he said that his easy listening music was for this stage of his life. Meaning his mission. I think he will rawk it when he comes back.

  50. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Could very well be those people are more into country, rock or hard rock, r&b, etc. David has a very smooth contemporary pop feel to his music. Even most of the songs he covered are in that genre. Not all, but most. But personally, I don’t get it either, how anyone can not be just blown away by his voice and fall in love with it & him.

  53. Anita says:

    That pic of David at the top is beautiful! I would love it if AI would mention about FEE on their site. I don’t think they even mentioned anything about BEGIN. Just because David’s not around until 2014, doesn’t mean they can’t mention about his upcoming releases. All the other sites do. Speaking of FEE, I think I’ll place my order today!

  54. kimk says:

    ahh I know no matter what he gives us we will love!!
    so many kinds of music
    not sure about rock or country but mmm…
    how about a R&B vibe to a bit of Pop with a Latino Flair!!?! 😀

  55. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–R&B vibe to a bit of Pop with a Latino Flair is PERFECT!
    I VOTE FOR THAT!!! 😀

    thanks Sarahhazel,
    you never know maybe one I will come to the USA, something to work towards.
    It seems that our Amazon agent is not doing USA or UK imports anymore. That is sad as that is where I have been able to get my David cd’s from. I hope that some one else is going to take on that role or else I won’t be getting the FEE cd.
    I shall be positive anyhow and wait and see before I begin to give up hope.
    now it is time for bed , have a great evening xxx

  61. angelbymyside says:

    Hi everyone!

    Just wanted to thank everyone for their prayers for all of us who live in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast! The storm was particularly devastating to the Jersey Shore and parts of NY. I lost my power last night and they told us we should expect it to be out for about 7 days but was very fortunate to get it back this afternoon. You never fully appreciate what you have until you no longer have it. I am just now able to see the pics of the devastation that took place at the Jersey Shore. I have spent most of my summers there and it breaks my heart to see what has occurred. There has been incredible destruction. Please continue to pray for everyone who live in the affected areas as they must now begin to rebuild.

  64. sarahhazel says:

    Goodnight, granny Lyn!

  65. Kristin says:

    Hey guys checking in again. Everything’s over pretty much here in MA. We just had brief big gust of wind and some rain. It’s still a little breezy but we still got power where I live and thank the Lord we’re ok. That was TOO CLOSE. Back in school today and it was still a bit windy; was nervous on the drive home, but overall I’m alright thank God 🙂

    Another wonderful post as always from FOD! haha THAT expression lol.

    I hope my fellow Archies on the east coast are alright! Hang in there guys! Sending more prayers your way 🙂

  66. sarahhazel says:

  72. ksf says:

    Hello all! 🙂

    Still praying for everyone affected by Sandy. What a mess! 🙁

    I can understand the comment from the blog post yesterday about liking David’s voice but not his music. I think it has something to do with his music choices? Not “cool” enough or doesn’t have a feel that is current enough? I’ve felt that way myself. Also, the person that made the comment is young and most young people are into a different sound and style than whatDavid has chosen. I think, as we’ve said before, the hope is that when he returns he will connect with the “right” writers, producers, etc. that appeals to young people and the mainstream. That’s my take on it anyway.

  73. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I’m most excited for the “salsafied” part…..haha! 😉

  74. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–Hi! I believe he could be “cool and current” (in his own way or style) without sacrificing the values he believes in…..just have to have that kind of balance….and like you said, connecting with the “right peeps”. 🙂

  75. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Martha, Reina shared that video of Lupe and is hoping to find a better one someone took. So, if anyone finds one, let me know and I’ll share it with her. That one just has the jumbo screen, but it’s not very clear.

  76. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sarah, I come here every day to see the gems you share in the form of pics and tumblrs. You shared a couple today I’ve never seen. You are the queen of wonderful finds!
    That one Christmas pic of him had a caption under that said “OMJ can I just have you?” That reminded me of the movie Casper when Casper whispers to Katt “Can I keep you?” My favorite Halloween movie!

  77. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–I love that Casper movie…funny, sweet, poignant…..have watched it so many times and that scene was one of my faves in the movie. 🙂

  78. kimk says:

    love David’s voice he is a sweetheart of a guy.. not sure if the type of music he does is hip or cool but that is ok by me. I am an older fan.
    I do like what is on the radio though as well as a lot of other great artists.
    if David wishes to when he gets back he can make music a bit more ‘cool with an edge’ if he wishes. reason I say that is he usually likes the kind of music that is cool.
    like Adele, Foster The People, Keane, Neon Trees, etc.

  79. kimk says:

    ❤Buy BEGIN.❤#DA2014 ‏@Shell_eeeyyy



  80. That lead pic! GAH! That was my 1st close encounter w/ TheArchuletor! Imagine that face just 2 steps away from you! LOL

    I was invited to be one of the interviewers and I “suggested” I bring along one more friend to document the event. So of course I called on Naree to join me, as always!

    Sign… I miss him….

  81. josie says:

    Re: David’s music choices, I think it’s funny that someone can say they don’t like his music. He doesn’t even HAVE a musical style yet, really. lol. It’s been a little bit of this, a little bit of that. I remember a year or so ago on mj’s blog, that was the big complaint of non-fans: “He isn’t defined; he’s all over the place, he doesn’t know who he is or what direction to take.” So….some peeps don’t like that he doesn’t have a sound, and others don’t like whatever sound they think he has. lol. Poor guy can’t win for losing. haha. I do agree, though, that his taste might not be edgy enough for some.

  82. Candy says:

    Power is back, plugged in my phone and laptop, ran water, and turned the heat on. Lost a few trees but no damage. But my plight for 24 hours with no power is nothing compared to the damage, destruction and devastation shore towns have experienced. My heart aches for all affected. Sadly, The Jersey shore will be forever changed. 🙁

  83. kimk says:

    josie well I don’t think he will ever do rock or country.. think for the most part he has been doing almost the same kind of music. not too edgy, not out there?
    The Killers are doing very well right now and the lead singer is mormon.
    they are good but def edgier then David.. a rock type band.
    love this song.. first heard it a while ago.
    was surprised to see that Brandon Flowers was lds.

  84. Candy says:

    That lead picture is a wonderful sight to come back to as is seeing all of you.

  85. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – sorry for late response. Busy evening. I don’t see that it’s necessary to sacrifice his values to make music. You’re right. Just agreeing with the blogger that its possible for people to like his voice but not necessarily the quality and style of music. I can see that perspective.

    kimk – Agree. It’d be great if he made the type of music he listened to — cuz that’s what his peers are ALSO listening to. Lol.

  86. kimk says:

    The Killers Miss Atomic Bomb
    this is new.. cool song.


  87. josie says:

    Glad you’re safe and sound, Candy. And everyone else. 🙂 Lovely top pic, huh?

  88. kimk says:

    ksf think it is more who he hooks up with where the music takes him? he pretty much can do it all. like Begin.. Kurt B doesn’t do pop etc so easy listening it was. like Forevermore was OPM.
    now this new Rainbow Remix MV and song.. lol who knows what that will be!
    geez we haven’t even got a peep of what it will sound like!!

  89. Candy, so glad to hear you are ok, i hope everyone else is too.

  90. They played Crush on my Radio station today. Love it!!!

  91. Russ says:

    Hello everyone.
    Candy, so happy you are ok and also so sad about the devastation to AC and NYC and other coastal areas. I was expecting to lose a few trees but all are still standing. No damage at all.

  92. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–so glad to know you’re OK.

    My @DavidArchie picture of the day…. 3 years ago today …Providence RI http://twitpic.com/b8vwo0

  95. Cheryl #DA2014 says:

    Thanks FOD family for all of your prayers on behalf of those living in the path of Sandy. Received word this morning from our son in northern VA that he is ok and he has power and then received an email from our grandson’s mission president (and an email from someone in our grandson’s congregation) that Elder Barker and all of the missionaries in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission are safe and accounted for. Grandson is serving in South Jersey, so we were really concerned when we saw the devastation there. Thanks, again, for your continued prayers for all.

  96. CANDY – glad to hear you are alright. Been watching the news. The devastation is so sad. But NY will triumph. May take some time but, people are resilient. God is there.

    TC always 🙂

  97. Anita says:

    I love that David sings a bit of this and a bit of that! It’s a sign of a great artist!! I just don’t get the music industry’s insistence to put artists in a little box, especially someone with enormous talent, such as David. It really just doesn’t make any sense to me. When David was on AI, some said he always sounded the same, and now when he sings so many different styles, which makes him so facinating, people complain! Ughh!!! Poor David!

  98. Grannycrush says:

    So glad to hear that you are OK, Candy, and that your loved ones are OK, Cheryl. I just can’t believe the devastation that exists in NY and Jersey. Just breaks your heart to think of the losses.

  99. sarahhazel says:

    Cheryl–that’s great…..must be big relief to know your loved ones are doing alright. 🙂

  100. Candy says:

    Cheryl when you write to your grandson ask if he volunteers at the South Jersey Ronald McDonald House. A group of missionaries volunteer there every week. 🙂

  101. Anita says:

    Candy-It’s great to see you back!!!! I hope you are doing OK.

  102. kimk says:

    Anita not poor David really.. this has all been his choice to do all this.
    I personally don’t feel sorry for him.

  103. Cheryl, so glad to hear your family is ok.

  104. Candy says:

    Thanks guys, so glad to come thru the storm with just a few trees down and a day with no power. Pales in comparison to what happened all around me.

  105. ksf says:

    Glad that things are okay for you Candy! 🙂

    kimk – I think you’re right. Maybe he chooses PEOPLE he wants to work with and not necessarily a sound or style (i.e. Kurt Bestor)?

    josie & Anita – I think the issue for non fans is not that he does different styles but the actual songs themselves, no matter what the styles are. That’s actually what I was trying to say before but I’m not making much sense tonight. Lol.

    Goodnight all! 🙂

  106. kimk says:

    ksf as I remember when he was recording CFTH he said KB made him laugh. :)))

  107. kimk says:

    I follow him on twitter and he really is pretty quirky and funny. also Jay Durias seems the nicest of guys too.

  108. cm(yakima)missionary fan! says:

    Yay!!! Candy! You made it through OK!!! Sure was worried about you. Pray everyone else is OK too!!!

  109. ksf says:

    kimk – love KB’s sense of humor

    Goodnight for reals 🙂

  110. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all

    Soo good to hear that Archufamily in the path of the storm are safe and sound :), Candy , Kristin, Cheryl and the rest hope everything will get back to normal soonest.

    I don’t mind David sings a little bit of “this” and “that” lol he can sing anything brilliantly and I will like it anyway 🙂 love his voice and his style haha I know “bias” !!

  111. Pocoelsy, Hi! I agree. David can sing anything. He always gives it his all no matter what he does.

  112. ATX #DA2014 says:

    CANDY! So glad to hear from you. Had a vision in my head last night – you in your cheerleader outfit, cheering the wind and rain away! LOL

    Abms / Sarahhazel – so glad to hear from you both. Prayers continue for all.

  113. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Forgive me Kristin and Cheryl, obviously super excited to know you are okay as well.

  114. ATX #DA2014 says:

    As far as David’s song / music choices to date. Why not try different types, different producers, different co-writers? I honestly believe he knew 2 years ago he was going on a mission, so why not take that opportunity to “seek out” future co-workers, as he also figures out what he wants to target when he returns.

    Of course as musically inclined as he is, something also tells me he knew 5 years ago what direction he wanted to do when he turns 24. He just did not know who he wanted to go along with him on the journey.

    Hope all that made sense. LOL

  115. AEX, Hi! understood it perfectly. You may be right.

  116. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Linda, thank you, at least someone understands my nonsense.

  117. Anita says:

    kimk-Maybe your are right. David isn’t going to be able to please everyone all the time, and of course he realizes that. As long as David loves and is at peace with the directions he chooses for himself, and he has fans who appreciate him and his music, that’s what really matters! David has certainly had his struggles, but he still has done very well for himself, and he has a fanbase that is a force to be reckoned with!!!

  118. Candy says:

    ATX-LOL well your vision was a tad off. I was huddling in the dark on my couch with one of those miner looking lights strapped to my head. My chant probably wasnt very cheerleader like. The wind was scaring the crud out of me, it howled and shook the house for hoursssssss.

  119. Anita, i like that ” A fanbase to be reckoned with” You got that right.

  120. pocoelsy says:

    Hi Linda Atx, pretty much agree with you 🙂 it’s all about the right connections, and I think he knew in his heart then that he would prolly go on a mission but was tied down by the contract with Jive (he said so many times that he never thought he came this far!!! silly boy lol)that’s why he held back, if he wanted to be famous like JB or 1D he could prolly easily achive that status…he’s the whole package !!! #2014/2015 would be very exciting and interesting for both David and us fans.

  121. kimk says:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @courtneyboll47 wow Courtney! What a sweet open letter you wrote to @DavidArchie! I too hope you get a chance to meet “your idol” #DA2014

  122. pocoelsy says:


    Hat off for what you said :), I never want to see David comes back and have to-try to please anyone or everyone and has to compromise his value, I love and respect the way he choose to live his life (so far) he can sing whatever he wants, those who appreciate his choice will stick around and I think there’ll be many of us then 🙂

  123. kimk says:

    Terry McDermott did Maybe I’m Amazed on The Voice tonight.. he was ok but..


    heck I WANT DAVID TO SING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAH!!!!!!!

  124. pocoelsy says:


    Huh !!! open letter !!! haha now I wanna see that letter lol since it’s “open” , wonder what letter they talked about, have we seen it !?

  125. Pocoelsy it on tweeter. I read it.

  126. kimk says:

    dang.. I miss David.
    really.. this is nuts!
    silly to not be able to say hi every so often!
    (ha ok done venting for now)

    geesh he looks good here to.. think the lady playing the guitar thinks so too? 🙂

  127. kimk says:

    pocoelsy ha what did I say.. I am all over the place tonight. think I may be missing a certain someone a bit.

  128. Kristin, Cheryl – glad you guys are ok as well!

  129. Suzanne says:

    I think the lady playing guitar wrote Works For Me with him.

  130. kimk says:

    David can do what he wishes.. lol and he does obviously. know I will be here. others not so sure but hey like I said before I’ll fight ya all for a spot at the piano.
    lol at the image of a bunch of ole coots fighting over a seat like musical chairs.

  131. kimk says:

    as for what we were talking about was getting folks in the US to buy his music.. en masse. think the key is to attract folks his own age for the most part.
    nothing against fans my age and all just for longevity it might be a good idea.

  132. Candy says:

    kimk-Im with you! Im getting tired of missing David…seems like this is taking forever. Im crossing my fingers and hoping we get a Christmas surprise from David…I know its a zillion to one shot but I really think fans need it. One little “Hi Its David here” directly from him! How that could hurt his mission is beyond me…and yes I know its probably his choice not to communicate.

  133. kimk says:

    Suzanne oh yeah.. I like her and WFM!!

    WFM Reno is the bomb!!



  134. Anita says:

    Pocoelsy-Thank you! There are even brighter things ahead for David starting in 2014! I can feel it, and his fanbase will continue to grow for sure! And we will continue to stick around as we always have!!

  135. kimk says:

    Candy gosh that would be wonderful!! like the best Merry Christmas we could get!!

  136. Kimk, save me a spot at the piano, im with you.

  137. kimk says:

    Hanh Archie ‏@HanhArchie
    remember the time when Zero Gravity was rumored to be in The Amazing Spiderman soundtrack? Love the rumor LOL

    ahh I loved that rumor and this video!!

  138. Candy says:

    kimk-comments to go with that WFM! and they werent mine! LOL

    “The way he opens this song… makes my kneecpas fall off. lol. Lord have moicy! =:O He is DANGEROUS! (in a GOOD way)

    you n me think alike, girl!!!! lol!! mmmmMMMMM!!!! I can’t imagine what he must be thinking to do it like that!!! woah!!! 🙂

    yo, lol. Whatever he’s thinkin’, I’m thinkin’ I’m wantin’ him to keep THINKIN’ it… (kneecaps be d*mned!)

    I don’t those jeans are legal in Reno. Sorry David, but you’ll have to come with me down to the station for processing.

  139. pocoelsy says:

    Thanks Linda I’ll check it out, haha I haven’t open my TT yet today.

    Kimk, you are so good at multi tasking hehe yes you’re all over the place and I love it you bring a lot of “news” here so thank you so much for the swift update, but not so much for making me missss that certain someone so badly too lol, dang still a long way to go…sniff sniff.

    Ok I consider you’re my Archufriend and all but when it comes to a spot at D’s piano I’ll fight you till the end haha I have been eyeing for that spot since the Idol days !!! poor David !!! there’ll be a hugh bunch of Ole coots around his piano haha!!!

  140. Candy says:

    Holy Mother of jeans! Sherwin Williams for the win!

  141. pocoelsy says:

    Gotta go out for a bit, will be back 🙂 see ya !!

  142. Candy says:

    Was it JR or Freo who had that glorious snippet of Joyful, Joyful…I loved it but its gone from my vault.

  143. kimk says:

    Candy ha those jeans and him WERE ILLEGAL then!

    Linda ahh.. can you imagine an intimate concert somewhere with just a few fans?!!
    have a feeling a lot of us would pay big bucks to have one!!
    I would!

  144. I’m watching Taylor swift on DWTS, she real cute and rich by now, but she really doesn’t have a voice, I guess the kids love her music.

  145. Candy says:

    I would give my life savings to sit around the piano at an intimate concert with David…maybe even throw in my kids!

  146. kimk says:

    saw a few tweets from folks who know David I think from Kari about David? hmm.. was he saying hi to them? was it about his career or both? no clue but
    the ladyvmusic one I am hoping it means that he will release that song she likes a lot and those Matt Clayton pics are part of it all!!! :)))

  147. Kimk, i would pay big bucks. Does anyone have a video of WFM with those illigal jeans?

  148. kimk says:

    Linda I saw a tweet that Taylor sold 1.2 mil Red cds for her first week. like WOAH!
    crazy huh. think the kids like she sings about stuff they know about.
    ha like bad boyfriends etc..

    Candy I know.. really he should do that kind of stuff. make a fortune!

  149. Candy says:

    kimk-what tweet was that, I must have missed it.

  150. Kimk, i saw them too. I’m hoping that it has something to do with his career. It takes a long time to put things deals together. This is just my opinion, not facts. Lol!

  151. Candy says:

    kimk-elton john made a fortune doing it, started in clubs with small intimate audiences then grow to full blown packed house shows.

  152. kimk says:

    Candy 😀

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour

  153. josie says:

    That’ll have to be a pretty long piano bench, lol…Yeah, I think it’d help if we could hear anything from him AT ALL. I think it’d help him career-wise to stay in touch -even a weensy bit- & it’d be less torturous for us.

  154. kimk says:

    Linda the Matt Clayton pics are for something!! :))))
    love to guess.. even if I am wrong.
    have faith something will ‘pop’ up!!

  155. josie says:

    Never mind. That made no sense. Y’all wouldn’t be sitting on the piano bench. I’m not thinking clearly, lol.

  156. Candy says:

    hmmm interesting tweets-wonder if they were just personal messages from David to them, or maybe I’ll see you in 2014! I cant stand the being shut out….wawawawa

  157. Candy says:

    Oh pooh, just remembered we loose daylight savings time this weekend. 🙁

  158. kimk says:

    okie dokie.. got to get some sleep but will see you all tomorrow!

    Happy Halloween folks!

    I grew up in New Jersey.. was born in Staten Island NY.
    the shore was always the place to be every summer. it
    saddens me to see it in such disarray
    but I also know the folks there.. they will fix it.
    spunky blokes to say the least.
    they don’t take carp and they don’t take no for an answer. they do!

  159. kimk says:

    Candy ha we are so not in the know..
    but hey
    this young lady said in an open letter to David that she has loved him since his
    Star Search days and hopes to meet him one day. then Kari tweeted this.
    it does say DA2014 in it!! 🙂

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @courtneyboll47 wow Courtney! What a sweet open letter you wrote to @DavidArchie! I too hope you get a chance to meet “your idol” #DA2014

  160. Candy says:

    well those tweets sure make one curious…
    Good night kimk-Im off to dreamland too, only managed to get about an hours sleep last night. Sweet Dreams All

  161. I’m off too. so goodnight Candy, Kimk, See you later josie.

  162. angelgal3 says:

    Hi everyone, Haven’t been here in awhile. Life has been crazy busy with work and family but I always try and find time in my day to listen to David. I was thinking of all my fellow east coasters here during the storm. So glad to read that everyone is OK. The devastation in NYC and NJ is unreal. I lost power here in MA for about 10 hours and a tree fell in my yard but I’m lucky! The wind howled for hours and I never thought it would end! Still praying for all those who lost homes,etc. Can’t wait to break out CFTH soon!!! I’ll drop back in again soon! Miss David!!!

  163. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN! For me things ae back to normal, but so many are just beginning the cleanup and rebuilding needed after Sandy! My thoughts and prayers to all.

    Catching up on comments! Loved “A fanbase to be reckoned with”…agree Anita and Linda! kimk had me ROTFL…just have to say that I’ll be one of those ole coots fighting for a seat at the piano!!! The “Holy Mother of jeans! Sherwin Williams for the win! from Candy had me in stiches! David sure can wear a pair of jeans well….nuff said! Great to read all the comments…know I’m NOT alone MISSING DAVID! #DA2014

    Nana patrol! ENJOY YOUR DAY and your David time! 🙂

    Happy Halloween from David and Team Archuleta (KS)



  172. kimk says:

    ahhthink it is from this photoshoot!!?


    oh my..


  173. ksf says:

    The point of the discussion last nigh was not who will stick around for David. The point was simply that some people like his voice but don’t like the songs that he chooses. It was NOT about David compromising values or trying to be like JB. Well said, kimk, at 10:32pm.

  174. Candy says:

    Morning All! Sun is shining I hope it helps with shore cleanup efforts. Realized even more how lucky I am, a house two doors down from me doesnt have power and wont till Sunday!
    ksf-I understand completely-David has this amazing mind boggling voice and there have been times when he picked a song (Elevator) that I cringed. Dont throw things peeps, it didnt have anything to do with my love/support…just made me go WTH…TOSOD is my least fav album…I love his falsetto but song after song of strained high notes wasnt cutting it for me. But I just found other songs of his that I did love and listened to them. Different strokes….

  175. Candy says:

    Its unrealistic for someone to think that even a hardcore fan is going to fall over everytime their artist so much as opens their mouth…they have to win me over with a great song before I come on board as a fan. And continue to do so with other good songs. Now BEGIN…is a whole nother story…I love just about every song on it!

  176. ksf says:

    Candy – exactly. MANY love his voice but song choice is just as, if not MORE important than voice sometimes, especially when it comes to longevity, as kimk said. I can adore someone’s voice but if I don’t like their songs then I won’t buy their music. It’s mote about the quality of the songs rather than the style. If I’m a pop fan but its a crappy pop song I’m still not going to buy it. The same goes with ANY style of music an artist does. That’s how most people think. That missionary blogger is a good example of this.

  177. jhen says:

    I Love David and Ate Vangie to work again on 2014. They both funny

  178. ksf says:

    Candy – YES! So true. David had me at Imagine but it doesn’t mean that I have to swear my undying love and allegiance to every single song. I’ve stuck around because I like who he seems to be as a person and because I can’t wait to see him reach the amazing potential that he has. But, I can only count on a couple of fingers the number of artists who I genuinely love EVERYTHING that comes out of their mouth. David’s voice is clearly out of this world and there’s no question that he is someone of integrity but its okay to say that for the general public, ESPECIALLY people his own age, his songs may not have the needed appeal.

  179. Jhen says:

    I thought the Gorilla costume is from recent picture from Chile lol, but it’s cute.

    I like David to explore different kind of songwriter and musician( new one) to help him out to different kind of styles of music. I know David is more comfortable with his friends songwriter, but it will not be hurt to try out different songwriter and musician he never been work with.

  180. ksf says:

    I also agree on the high notes…I think that’s why my favorite album is his first one. There was just so much more variety in his voice. I like the songs on BEGIN. as well that aren’t so high pitched. DGU, for instance.

  181. VaBeachArchie says:

    LOVE our Halloween surprise from David and Team Archuleta! THANKS Kari! What a GREAT pic….David sure has put a smile on my face today! 🙂

    ksf, Candy…Not a fan of every song David has recorded either…most albums are that way for me! Funny how everybody has their own list of favorites! Wore out one forevermore album…in fact just finally got my replacement from WOWHD! Hope the FEE won’t take as long! EXCITED FOR RAINBOW!

  182. ksf says:

    Jhen – I agree. Hopefully when he returns he will work with new songwriters, producers, etc. Love Vangie, too 🙂 lol.

  183. kimk says:

    hmm well it is November 1 tomorrow!!!!!

    think I see a gorgeous Rainbow coming soon to brighten all our days!!

    ha not to mention to get us all off our duffs.. are ya ready!!!?

  184. Candy says:

    ksf-I felt so guilty when I didnt love TOSOD…especially when David “seemed” so happy that he wrote so many of the songs. Had guilt pangs for a long time.

  185. Jhen says:

    pocoelsy- I like what you said in 10:14 , I don’t want him to compromise his value too just to please some of the fans want, I have know and love him that way from the start, will continue to love and support him whatever his choices. Anyway, you can’t please everybody, anything he do, there always someone who will not agree with him. So be it.

  186. Candy says:

    Hi VaBeach-I think its that way with fans of every artist…unless of course you’re 14…and a JB, all he has to do is stand there and look cute and they die. 🙂

  187. Candy says:

    Hi jehn-thats great attitude to have…as lond as other fans can understand and respect that not eveyrone is going to do backflips over every song…I dont see anything wrong with that. Doesnt mean they arent fans…just not a mega fan of a particular song.

  188. Candy says:

    *as long

  189. Jhen says:

    I wonder what Kari email to Miss Jo Ann and Ana Feleo, is it the gorilla costume too lol

  193. Grannycrush says:

    Angelgal3 Glad you didn’t have more damage than a tree in your yard. Where in MA do you live. My daughter is in Arlington right outside of Boston. She was lucky, too, with no damage. Many neighbors have trees down. I think her boys are going back to school today and the hope is that they will be able to trick or treat by avoiding the fallen tree areas.

  194. sarahhazel says:


  195. Jhen says:

    Candy- I see the point, just not a fan of some particular songs. That’s why I think he should also try other songwriter to work with, so he can see which kind of style of music will click to the masses. In the Philippines and other asian countries, I don’t think he will have problem, because everything David music whether it doesn’t sounds good in other people opinions, Asian fans still love his music, because from what I observed not only his talent fans want but more of his respectful personality. Because everyone know David is humble and kind.

  196. sarahhazel says:

    The “pumpkin” vlog….wow, that was 2 years ago???

    Candy – I think a lot of people have felt guilty at times for not liking certain songs or albums but I think it’s healthy to be honest about what appeals to you and what doesn’t. Tbh, it always annoys me that when anyone says that maybe they don’t like a particular song or that non fans don’t like David’s music, that it turns into, “I will always love David til the day I die and I love everything he has sung or will ever sing and I pledge my allegiance forever and ever and ever.” lol. That’s amazing that you feel that way but please don’t feel like you have to “defend” David. No one is bashing him…it’s just a discussion. Maybe we should just assume that everyone here feels that same “love” (because they do or they wouldn’t be here) but then let’s move on from there and have real and thoughtful dialogue instead of the pat response.

    Jhen–what can I say….the Asian fans are truly amazing!

  199. Candy says:

    I agree jhen- hopefully he can branch out, try new writers, his voice is so unique he isnt restricted to one style. I do love him for who he is…as do all of his fans…but unless they buy his music it isnt going to support a career.

  200. kimk says:

    Jhen David can do as he wishes.. he does the way I see it. as for what he sings I like some songs better then others because some speak to me more with who I am. for instance I am into his love songs more then his message songs. that is what makes our fanbase so fabulous. the diversity. think folks are talking more about selling cds and such not us fans? for instance had a convo with a young fan on twitter yesterday how they were a little dismayed that their friend was liking 1D now and well not really into David anymore. I told her that 1D is cute and ok and sure they will come back to him once he gets back. (hopes anyway)
    do think his Rainbow will help some as it seems something that might appeal to the young fans too. someone besides me.. an old coot fan!

    Haven’t listened to David Archuleta in ages! #goodmusic

  202. Candy says:

    ksf-I hear ya-that type of comment signals I need to go clean toilets! LOL

  203. Jhen says:

    sarah- I miss David blog and randomness lol

    I never knew that hurricane Sandy bought a lot of damages on East coast until I saw it on news, saw some of the houses were on fire too. Hope everything will be back to normal soon asap.

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

    Candy – LOL…probably. Bring it on. 😉

  208. Candy says:

    kimk-you are a trip… an old coot…I think not! You my friend dont even know what old is yet! But I do agree with you, its the liking one song more then others. I just wish expressing a different opinion wouldnt always turn into a urinating contest! If people like or dislike certain songs…so what…it isnt the end of the wrold!

  209. Jhen says:

    Kimk- I know why ID is so click to the teens and tweens, how can you resist some of their songs which have a message I can love you more than this lol and what makes you beautiful, those teens are already imagining and well I can say they are all kilig lol, but not all their songs have relevant message to be honest, but their mentor, their producers, their manager got the formula of getting the heart of teens.

  210. tami lyn says:

    good morning and happy halloween! what’s with the creepy gorilla pic??! that does not look like david. who is it supposed to be? what is it supposed to be?

  211. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–I agree….remember “D Songs we don’t like CONFESSION NIGHT”???…..LOL

  212. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–That’s it…..David and his music team needs to come up with THE FORMULA….haha…. 😀

  213. sarahhazel says:

    tami lyn–Hi!…well, there’s not much to it but David and a photoshopped gorilla mask….really. 🙂

  214. Candy says:

    sarahhazel-haha-yep, it was like playing truth or consequences!

  215. Jhen says:

    But David is expanding his music now, he singing what we don’t expect, Eye of the Tiger lol, I think he started to try different music, not only those emotional. We might surprise when he return from his mission.

  216. Jhen says:

    sarah- his team should think what type of music can capture the masses heart lol

  217. kimk says:

    Jhen 1D is ok for what they are.. they remind me of my young days when I loved the Beatles, Donny Osmond, David Cassidy, etc..
    they have a new song out that a lot of young David fans are liking because it is a little more real. it is written by Ed Sheeran and he is pretty good. he has a song on the radio now called The A Team. I like him he has a Jason Mraz, John Mayer thing going and hope David will cover some when he gets back.
    as for David.. well his MKOP is not that deep, TMH.. or Elevator for that matter. I do think a lot of David’s younger fans see him as a young cute boy singer.
    anyway this is 1D’s new song and it really isn’t too bad. great message song.
    love you the way you are.
    I do see why they are famous.
    they are very mainstream, cute and do what the folks are looking for.
    by the way there are over 8 million views in just two days.

    wouldn’t mind David covering this one day.

  218. kimk says:

    that being said.. wouldn’t mind Ed Sheeran writing with David one day. at all!

  219. VaBeachArchie says:

    Sarahhazel…Right with ya….”FOR ME IT’S THE LEGS”! LOL

  220. Jhen says:

    Kimk- 1D target market is clearly teens and tweens. I had heard of ED Sheeran, I just don’t know who he is, I wish David could work with him also.

  221. kimk says:

    having David’s music to hold us over is wonderful but for me anyway it was more who he is and the Archufriends. this is hard for me. I
    miss it all and I am
    really looking forward to 2014.

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

    kimk – agree. Really like that song…acoustic songs are always amazing for artists that can actually sing. lol. Love the kind of raspiness of the guy who sings the first verse. I cant TOTALLY hear David singing this type of song. Let’s pray that David hooks up with Ed Sheeran and that he lets him work his magic. 🙂

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

    I meant I CAN totally hear David singing this type of song.

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

    I think its a similar feeling to MKOP but more direct. It’s sweet and what someone would actually say in a relationship.

  225. Grannycrush says:

    Ed Sheeran has worked with Taylor Swift recently. I think they may be touring together.

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

    It’s begging to be covered. Let’s add it to David’s bucket list! 🙂

  227. Candy says:

    well the mundane is screaming my name…have a good one. BBL

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

    Bye Candy 🙂

  229. blue says:

    the gorilla picture is cute but did it have to be so early? lol 5 am and my phone goes off. i wonder how many groggy people checked their phones?

  230. glitter*girl says:

    sarah~ that’s david? doesn’t look like him at all. lol

  231. glitter*girl says:

    when have we ever seen david wear white pants, white shirt, and white tie??

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

    Hi tami lyn! 🙂 Are you still recording your Christmas album? lol

    Speaking of not looking like yourself, is anyone dressing up for Halloween? 🙂

  233. Joanie/suttygal says:

    New post is up! Happy Halloween everyone!! 🙂

  234. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ hi! 🙂 i have some christmas songs on soundcloud. i tried to record a melody for my little song i wrote but it sucks bad 🙁 i am not a songwriter

  235. Lucy says:

    Not to sound dumb but is that pic photoshopped or did he is really wearing the mask? When he tweeted about doing the photoshoot with Matt Clayton, he said gotta make up for when I’m gone, maybe he did a Christmas themed one too! The suprises keep coming! Happy Halloween everyone!

  236. tami lyn says:

    also i feel like an a** for my comment a few months ago when i said david was an average songwriter! trying and failing to write one simple melody has shown me how difficult songwriting is and so now i appreciate all of david’s original songs so much more.

  237. kimk says:

    blue lol it scared the heck out of me.. umm well it IS Halloween!

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @weiyannn that is the actual picture I took. I just made it look dirty. That is all @DavidArchie wearing mask and all! Just something fun!

    huh that is really DAVID WEARING THAT MASK!!!?? WAH!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    tami lyn – HAHA! I responded to you on the new thread but just had to laugh when I saw this last comment. I hear ya. We all feel like the anatomical part you’ve described
    sometimes. ROTFL.

  239. kimk says:

    Georgette Makk ‏@geomakk
    @kariontour @DavidArchie he was wearing that? Hahaha he’s so hilarious rofl! thanks for sharing! when was it taken?

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @geomakk yes he was! I just dirtied up the photo with a filter.


    MADE MY DAY!! 😀

    new thread

  241. Good morning, Jhen, Kimk, sarahhazel, Ksf, Frio, tami-lyn, Lucy,joanie, blue, Va beach, Candy, Angelgal3.
    I see that the convo is on liking all songs on cds. Even before i started following David, i very seldom liked all the songs on a certain album, so i would skip over them. For sure Davids first album was the one that i played all the way through because i loved every song. Although i love to hear David sing, i still play all his cds all the way through, but i favor some songs more then others. I love all his xmas songs. It was nice of David to plan ahead for us even on Holloween, Thank you David. Maybe he also has something for is at Xmas time.
