Happy 2013 David Archuleta Fans from FOD

FOD wishes all of you a peaceful, safe and happy 2013!!!! We are into our FIFTH YEAR of supporting David Archuleta, and still loving it!  All the best to each one of you, and thank you again for dropping by!

The Best New Year’s Gift EVER!!!!

Around dinner time EST, Kari tweets the most amazing picture EVER!!!  For so many reasons

  • David got the Birthday Book put together by Shelley, with OVER 1,100 well wishes.
  • David got all the other birthday and holiday greetings from fans ~ evidenced by the big box!
  • David looked luminous.  The thumbs up sign, the smile, the sparkly eyes said it all.

In response, Kari got alot of tweets that looked alot like this:

A few more treats from Kari!

Memories of New Year’s Eve 2010

I know everyone looks cold, but I LOVE this shot.   Looks like home to me!  Actually, David looks the least chilly.  I’ll bet he has hand warmers 🙂

 * * * *

And yes, it was one cold New Year’s Eve in 2010.  Even cold up in Canada as I recall.    David and the band were amazing onstage, even under those conditions.  And yes, a beanie was in order!

* * * * *

That’s a pretty-darn-close-to-100% number!

As much excitement that was brought on by the three tweets already posted, this one from Kari also garnered alot of excitement!

With all those Favourites and Retweets, I would say the fanbase was paying close attention there!

Amazing news!   I would expect the family time will definitely be a priority for a Returning Missionary, but some touring time would be awesome.  I vote for Christmas (if there is voting, that is lol)

A birthday vid!

Love the freeze frame action!

#DA2014: More 2012 David Archuleta Memories

One of my favourites.

And one of the greatest memories of 2012 was the #DA2014 effort, to let David Archuleta David know that he is loved, supported and that his devoted fans will be here when he returns!    Brainchild of Monica, the idea spread like wildfire, with the first project, the “We Will Be Here” video,  getting massive participation from fans everywhere.

Over the course of 3 short weeks, the word got out, and hundreds of fans sent in pictures showing their name, location and saying, in bold letters, that they will be here!  Set to music from Michael Jackson, here is the description of the #DA2014 project from Youtube:

Thank you for everything David! Especially for bringing this wonderful group of people together. We love you and WE WILL BE HERE when you get back!  Thanks to all of the fans who sent in photos for this video!  

More photos here:http://www.kizoa.com/slideshow/d2450817k1645077o1/da2014

Another #DA2014 project was the #DA2014 Merchandise, organized by Karin (@zerogravity1).

T-shirts, hats, keychains, tumblers, totebags, hoodies and many other items were designed and sold through Marshmallow Dream  Facebook page.  In the spirit of what this campaign is all about 10% of the sales have gone to Childfund International.

Karin has already given Childfund International a check for $250 with more to come from the sales of the #DA2014 items.


And a third project, Making the World a Good Place, acknowledges those who help to make a difference in this world, no matter how big or small the act of kindness may be.   This is a project to help keep David Archuleta fans reaching out to others all over the world who are in need  while David’s doing the same on his mission.  It will take sacrifices of our own time but the end result of putting a smile on someone’s face is priceless.  Each fan who makes a contribution to the site will receive a certificate and A Good Place bracelet as recognition.  Learn more about this #DA2014 project here:

And there is also #DA2014FitClub.   The Virtual “Club” was established to encourage each of us to incorporate more fitness into our lives during this two year break, and beyond, through group support and awareness.  Activities included daily reporting of fitness activities, walking/running up to 1000 miles, biking and reporting miles, a number of others.

For this first week of January, the FitClub is asking us to ATTEMPT to remove any added sugar from our diets (in coffee, tea, drinks, etc) for a week.  Make a conscious decision to say “no” to sugar.  A sugar substitute (like Stevia) is fine.  Great idea!

* * * * *

A need for balance: reflection on #DA2014

All of these activities listed above reminds me of one of the opportunities we have during the (now less than) two year absence of David is to get involved in areas that we may not have either thought of, or not felt we had the time to do before March 2012.  As you can tell, we have been scaling back on FOD as well, and will continue to do so even more, to give each of us here more time to engage in our own pursuits, ready to be refreshed and to hit the ground running in 2014!

It’s now 2013, and a good time to reflect on the progress of our own Two Year Plans.    Nothing like the first day of a new year to ‘ponder’ for a bit.  What is that that will make a difference: to ourselves, our families, our community, our world?  You are welcome to share your thoughts on comments, at fodfrontpage@gmail.com or keep it a personal, private journey.  David’s absence can be used as a springboard to involve ourselves in, for example, a  new fitness activity, learn a new language, to volunteer more, to go on our own “mini-mission”, or create that balance in another way.  The possibilities for each of us are endless.


An intricate weave
a design meant to be
that’s what we see
through our hopes and our dreams…

An image created
through the corners of our minds
carefully constructed
through moments of time…

What an intricate design
so beautifully placed
when the foundation is hope
and erected in faith…

Yes we all have a purpose
and a reason you see
because we all have a calling
you’re a design meant to be…

A New Year’s Vlog from the past

This is a great one!  Almost exactly 2 years ago, David talks about this time of year (Christmas, New Year’s, birthday), family, concerts and the future.  A great discussion of bullying is also on this vid.  Had to chuckle about exercising once a week tho 🙂  Enjoy!


* * * * *

Have a great New Year’s Day!!!!!!!

  1. Shanny in Australia says:

    Welcome to 2013 Archie-peeps!

    Pastel – you call this mega post ‘scaling back’?! I personally have not seen any scaling back lol. I too love, love, love that ‘I’ll be back’ pic of david. Makes me smile everytime I think about it and all it’s meaning.

    And those crops….whoa! Thanks…i have them tucked away now.
    So so wonderful to get a happy, shiny picture directly from the man himself. 🙂

  2. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    Happy New Year to all!!! And what a way to end the year/bring in a new one…that fabulous picture of David sent by the man himself!! He looks amazing!! Healthy, luminous, happy, etc…and those sparkling eyes!! God really did add a dash of Heaven to the mix when he made this guy :). And he really does look like this is where he belongs at this time in his life and that picture will carry me through the next year before he comes back home (next year guys!!!).

    I hope you all enjoy a peaceful New Year’s Day celebrating with family and friends or just relaxing as we start into a brand new year! I myself will be cooking a prime rib meal for the family and taking down Christmas decorations and getting things back to a normal routine :). Have a fabulous day Archufamily <3

  3. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi Penny, I agree with everything.
    I’m sure david must carry ‘shiny cream’ around in his pocket at all times and secretly whips it out and applies some everytime a camera is around.

    Either that or david is an expert at letting God shine His light through him. 🙂

  4. kimk says:

    good morning folks!!
    Happy New Year.. WOW 2013 seems to be off to a fabulous start so far!!

    oh and I LOVE to be able to say we will see David next year.. ON TOUR!!!!
    I love the pic Kari and David sent us.. was in tears when I saw it!!
    KARI ROCKS!!!!

    hope to see David sing again like he did on NY in Las Vegas
    watched Ryan Seacrest’s New Year last night and it was good but would of been
    even better if David was there too!!
    if I could choose one of those artists for him to duet with I would chose Pitbull!
    he can party.. get the crowd moving!
    not to mention a song released with him would rocket David’s sweet voice back to the radio!

    David has sung with Pitbull before
    Somos El Mundo
    David was outstanding in it and for such a fabulous cause!

  5. kimk says:

    Shanny can’t say any time I saw him live he didn’t shine like that.. a glow if you will. first time I saw him was one of the first things I noticed.
    lol that and how young he looked in person.
    Charlotte Idol tour.. he came out to sign before the show.
    was wild and crazy for him.. everyone was trying to get to him.
    no audio on this vid not sure why
    but you can see how young and gorgeous and loved he was.
    I was right behind the first blond lady who wanted a hug and pic with him
    she was a fabs David fan from England as I recall but think she drifted away
    because he was too young? she felt he needed time to grow some as I recall.
    hope she comes back to him later on she might be quite surprised.


  6. Rapport says:

    Ditto to Shanny from Australia. I, too, have seen nothing resembling ‘scaling back’. And I am so grateful!

    Pastel, I also think “I’ll Be Back. David. Kind of Utah #DA2014” was a highlight of 2012. A moment frozen in time nine months ago and a heartfelt show of solidarity on David’s part. It was one of my favorites from a whole year of favorite moments.

    How many times can one say, “What a guy.” I say ad infinitum and it still wouldn’t be too many times.

  7. glitter*girl says:

    good morning and happy new year! i finally tried the cakemix+pop recipe last night. i used strawberry cake mix and 12oz of grape pop. then frosted with vanilla frosting and sprinkles of course, then put them in fridge. just had one this morning. they are sweet, dense, and moist, perfection! thankyou so much to whoever shared that recipe here awhile ago 🙂

  8. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, funny how whenever I watch a vid of david, I find myself smiling all the way through. (even if he is chewing gum with his mouth open which my family would tell you I have no tolerance for. lol) I suspect everyone also smiles all the way through his vids. 🙂

    I can imagine you standing there, quietly soaking it all up Kim. Am I right? Looks like you must have got a pretty good chance to just stand and quietly observe and enjoy the moment all mesmerized. 🙂

    It’s a shame about the lady drifting away because of his youthfulness. Although on some level I do understand. Even earlier I was looking at the top pic Pastel posted and thought to myself…’One day I will look back on this pic and be surprised at how young he looks’. I know that, because I have begun doing that with his earlier pics already. It makes me feel a little weird that I squeeed and carried on over someone so young. But that will never stop me. David is young in looks only anyway…and ok…so my 9yo daughter would love to talk Pokemon with him lol….but he has so much maturity and talent and wisdom and goodness….that with david, age really is just a number…or as the case would be – youthfulness is only on the outside. I sure hope that lady finds her way back sooner than later. 🙂

  9. kimk says:

    LOVED all the excitement that one little pic brought yesterday!

    not to mention.. tour news, knowing David is coming back next year and the fabulous gift David and Kari sent us!
    also thanking the folks at his mission that gave the go ahead for the pic!!

    Nikki Lakin ‏@nickuhlakin
    well now we can officially say that @davidarchie will be back next year! #HAPPYTWEET

  10. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi Rapport, I fully agree. 🙂

    Good morning Glitter girl. 🙂

  11. angelbymyside says:

    HAPPY 2013 TO EVERYONE!!! May this new year bring health, happiness, and prosperity to all! 😀

    David will be back NEXT YEAR!!!! WOO HOO!!!!

    That just may be one of my favorite pics of David EVER!!! There is just something special about his smile and eyes in that picture. I think it is that he seems totally at peace! As the saying goes, the windows are the eyes to the soul! 😀

  12. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Shanny, Penny, kimk, Rapport, glitter girl and FOD! And what a FABULOUS start it was….tweet from Kari on the posibility of a 2014 TOUR….99.99999% and the the SUPER SPECIAL pic of David sent by the man himself! THANK YOU!

    FANTASTIC post Pastel! My favorite moments of 2012 are too many to count!

  13. VaBeachArchie says:

    angelbymyside….Happy New Year! David looks happy, healthy and really comfortable with where he is and what he’s doing!

  14. glitter*girl says:

    happy new year VaBeach! 🙂

  15. kimk says:

    Shanny lol think that is the only time I ever saw him do that. as for the lady.. think she represents a lot of older fans who felt uncomfortable him being so young and why we were so drawn to him? went thru the same thing then and for me why yes I do stand back when I go see him live for the most part. don’t get me wrong as you see I let it go here and around and thoroughly enjoy all my time at the concerts and such but getting too close doesn’t work for me. not that I mind others doing it just that I’d rather be like an observer fan and not get that hug etc?
    haven’t really worked it all out but have made my peace with it all and just go with it.
    now for the lady.. for all I know she still is a fan of his so not too worried about her.
    David is so talented and such a fabulous person how could you not like him?
    way I see it his potential to be all that and them some is still off the chart.

    now for the video.. was in the back the whole time enjoying all the spazz.
    GG flew by me saying.. where is my David repeatedly.. knocking folks to the ground to get to him. didn’t know it was her but later on knew it when I met her.
    darn I miss her.. she is one heck of a lady.
    did get an autograph but that was only because my son who went with me took
    my things to sign and went into the crazy to get it.
    was kind of like the Beatles best way I could describe it.
    was fun!

    ps.. GG didn’t really knock folks down but if and when you meet her she is
    a force to reckon with and all she has to do is say make way..
    and lol we do!! 🙂

  16. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    Good morning :). Shanny..I know how you feel!! I held my ODD back for quite a while bc of D’s age and I have a daughter the same age lol. It just felt a little weird!! But I slowly discovered this site and others and have met some awesome David fans and realized I wasn’t alone and have allowed myself to enjoy the wonderful ride I was chosen for :). I believe there is a reason why David has broken into each of our hearts, we are here to serve some type of purpose and I love it :). And as they say as we all get older, age is just a number 😉

  17. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi ya Vabeach and Abms. Best wishes bachatcha both. 🙂

    With this 99.9999% chance of a tour, i’m completely wanting to know if D has had preliminary discussions about it or if Kari is just assuming. I fully expect D to come back to music but whether he will tour or not in 2014, I haven’t been so sure of. Might do some acting or writing intermingled with appearances instead? Either way, I’m ready to squee and get excited over the possibility of it. It’s just plain old exciting to think of him being back, making vlogs and posting pics and doing interviews etc.

  18. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ “went into the crazy” lol love it! can i use that in 2013? 🙂

    @FODFansofDavid @onedavidnet @kariontour nice to see @DavidArchie in Galaxie mag new year issue, It’s a good sign 😉 pic.twitter.com/QRRXnlzO

  20. Janel aka Nellie says:

    For the 2014 fit club even though I’m technically a member of it, all the challenges don’t work for me. Walking effects my sciatica and oddly enough just regular aerobics and other things do not. I have officially lost 22 lbs total since I began in September. I could do better but have learned that losing weight slowly is better for me and I’m more apt to keep it off. My daughter finished her personal training certification and is my personal trainer. She has me on 100 ounces of water a day and I keep track of everything on myfitnesspal.com. The suggestion for no sugar for a week I can’t do either because I have low blood sugar problems (but not diabetic). I’m also allergic to sweeteners, so that’s out. My goal has always been to feel better about myself and be healthier. I think it might take another year to get down to the weight I feel comfortable with, but I know I can do it. Have a Happy New Year to David and his family, the FOD family and everyone! Looking forward to that 99.999999% chance of a concert in 2014!

  21. Candy says:

    Shanny-I can pretty much assure you it isnt just a figment of Kari’s imagination! HE WILL TOUR!! I would bet on Christmas 2014, throw in some things in the PI in between. 🙂

  22. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol that about describes what it will be come the end of this year.. of course!

    Shanny think someone already won tickets to it no? would assume there has been discussions plus his team also knows all the good stuff we don’t.
    like dang I just know another cd is coming this year!
    ok hopes, wishes and geesh those Matt Clayton pics got to be for something!
    oh and Ladyv had a secret meeting as I recall about D music?
    When Hearts Fall Out?
    fabulous name for the cd.. lol or us!!
    anyway bet for the most part like his MKOCT the next might already be being thought out or for that matter all the kinks worked out?
    from what I remember his last tour folks, who no clue were trying to stop it?
    if had to take a guess.. jive?
    maybe they owned some of his performances etc and because he said no to them they were being.. bleepheads?
    got me but know I am very excited!!!

  23. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Penny, while it’s true I am 26 years older than David, been around that many years more than he has, I think Paula Abduhl hit the nail on the head when she said speaking of David that she see’s this confident, older soul who knows exactly what he wants. His spirit is older and wiser than mine. 🙂

  24. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I love to hear the details of your story – including the part about GG. 😆 Doesn’t surprise me really either. lol She’s clearly a confident woman. 🙂
    There is a shy part of me that would probably be inclined to stand back and just quietly but intently soak it all in….but I think with david…i would probably have to risk all possibility of making a fool of myself and get myself in there to meet him…and (big breath) ask him for a hug…maybe. Might chicken out on the hug, not sure. Maybe settle for shaking hands (and not letting go.. 😉 )
    Lucky your son was there to get the autograph for you! Note to self…take a sane person with me. lol

    Penny…why we were all ‘chosen’ and what that ‘purpose’ is really intrigues me. I really feel that too but it’s like a riddle I can’t solve. For the most part, like you and Kim, I have come to just accept things as they are…but the questions do still skirt about the edges of my mind. The other day I got a little ‘over’ a few of the controversies that go on in the fandom sometimes and the ‘Why’s’ were playing around in my head again…but I still don’t have answers that ring true with me yet. I think one day all the Why’s will become clear…until then we just enjoy and support. 🙂

  25. Candy says:

    OK MODS-Scaling back…are you serious?? If this is scaled back I cant imagine what going full throttle would be like. This is more then I ever anticipated, when David made the announcement to leave for two years, I had visions of sites shutting down and it being the longest two years of my life! Im deliriously happy to say none of that happened.
    And now we have been blessed with a picture directly from the man himself…something else I never thought would happen. Call me one very happy fan! So thankful that his mission president ok’d it. The fact it went viral within seconds of being posted says a lot about the love fans have for this very special young man!

  26. Rapport says:

    “Went into the crazy to get it. . .” Good line, kimk.

    Shanny in Australia, I am certain Kari would never assume anything for David, or speak for him without his full knowledge or mutual understanding. She knows what’s going to happen when he gets back. So, I take her at her word (with that one-thrilionth of a chance David takes a big u-turn into a new frontier).

    This is a perfect New Year’s Day post, Pastel!

  27. Candy says:

    Shanny-the answer is quite simple…its part of the Masterplan…I feel and will forever that it is no accident that we are all here. If you step back and look at the bigger picture it probably has to do with this coming at a time in all of our lives when we needed it for whatever reason. I strongly believe we have been chosen, selected, whatever you want to call it to be here and not by David! Its been quite a fascinating journey and we’ve only just begun!

  28. kimk says:

    Shanny lol go for what you wish with David.. he really is just as you see on all the vids.
    ok no attacking the guy.. lol that reminds me of the story about the older lady who tried to kiss him when he was going to his car at a mall?

  29. Candy says:

    Oh GG-She is a force to be reckoned with, if you got to know her like a few of us have she was quite the pip, in a good way. I was lucky to get to know her a little more then what fans saw here, she is everything a modern day woman should be…and then some. She will be back when David returns…fire and brimstone couldn’t keep her away!

  30. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy…ha…one thing I have learnt about myself being a fan of davids and living amongst regular swirling rumours is…I’m a ‘give me evidence, tell me straight’ kind of gal. Not that I don’t believe and hope, just that I guess I always keep a little in reserve, until it’s a done deal. But if I was a betting person, i’d be booking my flights for 2014. 🙂

    Kim, oh to know what Kari knows! Ahhh..it’s painful to contemplate the exciting things we know nothing about! lol
    A meeting with Lady V?? Don’t think I know anything about that…except wasn’t she hinting about something on twitter a while a go? And we were hoping it was David related. AND didn’t they have a meeting a few months before he left? I recall something about some mention of going through the archives of songs they have done together previously…? Am I way off or kind of on the right track?
    As for ‘When hearts fall out’…just that title alone might make Archie hearts fall out in simple anticipation of what the album might contain. 🙂

  31. Candy says:

    Shanny- I think its safe to say that within .9millionth of a percent is a pretty sure thing. I do understand those that are a “Doubting Thomas” as Im married to one. He needs proof positive to strike him before he believes anything. Me I like to take people at there word, especially when they have given it to me and even more so when that person is Kari.

  32. Shanny in Australia says:

    Janel, I can have a tendency to have low blood sugar at times too – sometimes if I go to long without eating. But some fruit usually helps. That might be a better alternative for you? Keep up the good work! And make sure you don’t talk back to your personal trainer just because she’s your daughter. 😉

  33. Miss Vicki @DA2014 says:

    Happy 2013 to everyone……DAVID LOOKS WONDERFUL……:He looks tickled pink to get the Birthday Book and all our letters and gifts…….And thanks to Kari about sharing that there is a 99.99999% chance of a tour next year…..DID I SAY TOUR NEXT YEAR!!!!!!! Shanny I read your commnent about the lady who drifted away from David due to his youthfulness…….Can’t judge a book by it’s cover…..She obviously did not know what a wise old soul he is…..I have often commented to David in postcards or letters to him that I feel he is wise beyond his years…….More grown up than some middle aged men to boot…….Miss Vicki

  34. Good Morning everyone. Happy New Year!!!!
    The post is excellent, thank you Pastel.
    See that we are still awing over Elder Archuletas Pic. I don’t blame you.
    I can’t stop looking at it. I’m waiting for my family to come over this morning, so will be off for a while, but will be back.
    I was having such a great New Year and POOOFF!! it all went tumbling down.
    I found termites in my house this morning. Aye! Aye! Aye!.
    I know this is a not a tragedy, like so many other things that have happened this past year. But for a woman alone its a big chunk mula from my budget.
    But i will not dispair, this too will pass.
    Hope i didn’t depress your New Years day. I just needed to vent and you are all my friend.

  35. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    Lol…just watched the video posted by Kimk with David signing autographs and chewing gum!! The Mom in me wanted to reach out and gently put my hand under his chin and close his mouth….that’s what I do with my kids when they chew like that lol ;).

    Shanny…I think Candy got it right…it’s all part of the Masterplan! We may never figure out what the reason is but David has been brought into our lives for a reason and I also believe we also have been brought into his for reason. Powers greater than us have it all figured out for us and the journey HAS just begun 🙂

  36. Candy says:

    Janel-I too have issues with not being able to exercise, three back surgeries have made that next to impossible. But that doesnt mean I cant eat healthier, of course that doesnt mean giving up my beloved diet coke, not happening! I hear ya about the low blood sugar thing too, my kids and I all have varying issues with it.

  37. glitter*girl says:

    omg u guys! just had my first freaky scare of 2013. my hungover idiot BF just told me to go on his FB page and delete all his drunken rants from late last night so i was like yeah sure! thinking-ooh this is gonna be fun to see who and what is all on his page lol! so one of the first things i see on his page is a comment from jeff archuleta! my mind started racing like what the heck?? he is FB friends with jeff archuleta?! how on earth is that even possible?!! so i click on his name and of course it was a different jeff archuleta! wow, that woke me up good! haha!

  38. Candy says:

    Hey Penny-Yup, it feels good to know that we were invited on this journey, and in those few moments when Ive toyed with thoughts of “what am I doing here, a grown woman hanging on a fan site” something, or someone jolts me back to reality! I dont question anymore, just sit back and enjoy the ride. 🙂

  39. Miss Vicki @DA2014 says:

    Hey glitter girl….what a freaky thing…..Miss Vicki

  40. Candy says:

    ROTF -Oh GlitterGirl-I never know what you are going to say next but I sure enjoy all you post! You’re a trip in the best sense of the words.

  41. glitter*girl says:

    happy new year miss vicki! freaky is right lol! what a weird way to start off 2013! haha 🙂 maybe it means i’ll break up with my BF, then meet and marry jeff! LOL!

  42. Candy says:

    well unfortunately the mundane hasnt taken a holiday break, it’s calling my name. Have a good one, see everyone later.

  43. glitter*girl says:

    thanks candy!!! 🙂 lol

  44. kimk says:

    ha.. I like a spunky David. leave him alone! 😉

  45. WoW! Davids EH MV made it to the top for on Musiqtone. We need to start voting again. Yea!!!!

    Oh my!! A 38 min long video of @DavidArchie at the Hard Rock in Denver!! It’s NEW!! Thanks @aisimchan for finding it!! http://youtu.be/SLm6jr08m-8

  49. sarahhazel says:

    OH, I LOVE THIS!!! 😀

    Rowzzz ‏@ArchieGabee

    Hope it’ll find its way to you wherever you are~ http://tmblr.co/Z8llTyahL1G- miss you @DavidArchie 🙁

  50. Shanny in Australia says:

    You guys are posting faster than I can keep up with lol…

    First off…i guess I want to be clear that I don’t doubt for one minute Kari’s integrity or anything like it. If she says something is so, then I fully believe her. What I tend to be cautious of ..is letting my hopes and wishes colour the way I interpret what has been said.
    In this situation I guess I can see Kari having had casual conversations with david prior to him leaving about how he plans, on resuming his career when he gets back. In her minds eye she may have thought that meant ‘definite tour’ while david may have.thought ‘definite song writing’. Not saying Kari is not truthful etc
    But really…is not a big issue. Was really just thinking out loud earlier. She is after all ‘KariOnTour. lol David must have picked her for a reason right!? 😉

    Candy – hmmm…maybe I have to figure out ‘what I need’ then? To me david is a light in a darkening world…so maybe that’s what I get – some goodness to rejoice over? ~shrug~ 🙂

    Kim…i should go for whatever I wish?!
    Weellll then….. lol
    No…really…the thing I would wish for the most in my second most wildest dream (my first would be to be friends with david) is to get to spend a day with david like that young fan did once. Only I wouldn’t be too shy to talk to him, i’d be picking his brain left, right and centre. lol
    Ok…back to reality…to shake his hand, speak a few sentences with him and get a photo would be very special to me. 🙂

    Musiqtone.com ‏@musiqtone

    Here is the field for the Genre/Bracket Finals: Pop | @DavidArchie @onedirection @L2Official and @bobatl ft. @taylorswift13


  52. kimk says:

    guys about the fan.. think it was more he was a little too attractive for someone so young. and he was.. come to think about it he still is.
    boy got it going on even if he tries not to. lol
    tough beans David.. you just got it and no matter how far away you try to go
    you are not going to get away from it.
    destiny way I see it.

  53. Sarahhazel, i know, all that hard work everyone did by voting has paid off.
    It will get a little harder now. with 1D, Taylor Swift,Ls/ who ever they are.
    But we can do it.

  54. sarahhazel says:


  55. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Yes, Linda, we need to start voting now before we can left behind! Non of their artists are gone which means their fans are in full force! 🙂

  56. kimk says:

    sarahhazel wow that is fabulous!!!!
    way to go Archies!!!

  57. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–of course we can do it….we are ARCHIES! 🙂

  58. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Shanny, I too would be talking to him left and right and picking his brain. Ha! I’ve often imagined what it would be like running into him at a restaurant where no fans knew he would be, none of his security guards or management surrounding him, no media in his face, just to ask if I can talk with him for a few minutes. The things I think about telling him and asking him always change, but I’m sure some of us have thought of the same scenario or similar ones. What would you all ask or tell him? It would have to be something not asked to death already by interviewers. LOL. I did get that precious time alone with him at the Utah Entertainment awards before the other fans noticed him. That was nice. But it was loud so he didn’t hear me too well. Had to repeat myself a couple times.

  59. I’m going to go vote before my family comes, maybe i can get 100 in. BBL

  60. kimk says:

    Shanny lol might need a few times upon meeting him.. my first time don’t think I said much but hi? lol then ran away.
    so much fun though cause you are with fellow Archies.
    we just can’t stop going over all the little details and stories associated with the concerts.
    oh and then there is The Voice, close up.. that is what seals the deal.
    no way out after that.

  61. Bea says:

    Fabulous way to start off the New Year!
    Do not pass by the “Archangels Good Place” blog.
    Thank you, FOD and especially Pastel for featuring this site.
    I’m so impressed with the beautiful, creative endeavors of others –
    who are inspired by David. It’s easy to join in.
    David’s fans are truly the best in the World.

  62. kimk says:

    Janel wonder what he really thinks of all this?
    reminds me of the last time I saw him.. swarms of folks following him as he went to the bus.
    he just has ‘it’.

  63. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could win this one for him – like old times AND the fact that he’s gone but his fans can still conquer! 🙂

  64. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY 2013 Linda, Janel, Candy, Miss Vicki and sarahhazel!

    kimk….Remember that GORGEOUS girl at the Greensboro VIP that grabbed David with both arms! We were all SHOCKED to learn she was married with a child…said she couldn’t help herself! lol

    Candy…Glad to be a part of the “Masterplan” and on this journey! 🙂

    sarahhazel…READY to battle in the next round too!

  65. Shanny in Australia says:

    Miss Vicki – I have often thought that – there are plenty of immature and unwise older men. And then some like david – wise beyond their years. Age is nothing.

    Linda – 🙁 We live in termite territory here but I don’t know to much about the details of how they work. Here’s hoping the problem can be resolved more easily and cheaply than you are anticipating!

    Penny – yes, I think we have also been brought into david’s life for a reason too! Something about that DOES ring true with me.

    Glitter girl – lol…I’m sure you felt your heart beating hard in your chest for a moment there! lolol

    Candy …’a grown woman hanging around fan sites’. Haha – yep been there, wondered that about myself before too. lol But then you just stop and think of david….and what else is there to do…we have no choice but to fangirl and do our bit to support this guy. lol

    Hello Sarahhazel. Thanks for the links. I will check that vid out tomorrow. sounds very cool. 🙂 (extremely late here)

  66. Rapport says:

    Spooks me a little when I see the “Everybody Hurts”/David thumbnail sitting alone on the second line of the Musiqtone Pop Bracket. It’s not in alphabetical order, so does that mean EH came in fourth place in the last round of voting? Is there any rationale to the order of graphics?

  67. Sarahhazel, got my first 100 vote in. Now i have to go , See you guys later.

  68. sarahhazel says:

    VaBch–thanks!…we need the whole ArchuArmy for this next one! 🙂

  69. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–finished my 1st 100 votes too!

  70. sarahhazel says:

    Rapport–he got 1st place on the last round! 🙂

  71. Shanny in Australia says:

    Janel, Kim…i think if I knew I had a good amount of time with him, I would be able to talk easily. I think it’s the ‘ten seconds to say something meaningful’ that might make me tongue tied. Same with writing him a postcard or a short note – not enough space for this long winded person here. Janel…in your situation at the awards, I think i’d still have the same problem…only a short time.
    If I had a chance to talk for a decent amount of time, I would be asking david some very serious questions. Lots of ‘Why’s’ and ‘How does it make you feel’s?’

  72. Rapport says:

    Thanks, Sarahhazel. There’s so much type on that poll page, I have to keep focused on the right hand side — and then check my bleary-eyed work, just in case I “dot” someone else by accident!

  73. Shanny in Australia says:

    Waving to Bea and Lct and Rapport. 🙂

    (and anyone else I haven’t said hello to tonight 🙂 )

    Well waaay past my bedtime. Nite nite all. Think i’ll go and look at those shiny pics a few more times and then head off to sleep. Have a lovely day/night everyone. 🙂

  74. sarahhazel says:

    Well, this poll shows only results, so I guess it’s done and over with! Woot!!!
    Excited for the official announcement!!!

  75. I’m probably one of the older fans here, and i don’t consider myself a fangirl but a fannanny. I support David like i would one of my grandsons, this is what i tell my children when they make a remark. I admire what he stands for and that voice is captivating. I will continue supporting him, He has given me so many great moments.

  76. sarahhazel says:

    Rapport–I know…haha….gets exhausting sometimes….but worth it!….I find it easier to do voting while listening to David’s music and other artists’ music as well. 🙂

  77. sarahhazel says:


  78. Sarahhazel me too. I listen to EH MV while i’m voting, so i can double task. I give the video some views and vote at the same time.
    I was leaving but my family is not here yet, so ii will stick around till they come.

  79. kimk says:

    VABeach I do remember her she went right before me! lol you couldn’t even see David for a while.. oh and don’t think he minded at all. she was gorgeous!! 🙂

  80. Rapport says:

    sarahazel, thanks for always being one step ahead. If I ever get lost in the wildnerness (or the subway), I want you by my side! lol

  81. sarahhazel says:

    Maybe it’s the 1st Class Cabin & it’s very attentive flight attendants…..

  82. Sarahhazel on that Benjamin Button tweet.
    She remarked that she didn’t know how he looks younger now then in Feb .
    I think in Feb, he had just finished a drueling mini syre, mall appearances, recordings, photo shoots, i could go on and on. He was tired and looked it.
    In the pic he just sent he is rested and looks it.

  83. sarahhazel says:

    Rapport–no problem….haha! 😆

  84. sarahhazel says:

    The Sounds of David ‏@1DayCloser2DA

    “@pikepss: @DavidArchie May you find everything you are reaching for right inside yourself this New Year!”

  85. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–could be….he did work almost non-stop during the NA filming….guess this mission thing is a lot easier for him now that he’s already adjusted to his work and the place.

  86. breanne says:

    The picture of David with the birthday book and box of letters, etc. from Kari is beyond AMAZING!!! He has what I call the “high pro glow”. I notice it a lot with people who are very spiritual. Anyway, it did my heart good to see him looking so fantastic!! He is such a beautiful angel!!! 🙂

    Don’t forget to vote 1 song hourly for Rainbow Remix, Everybody Hurts & Broken on Chart Central:

  87. VaBeachArchie says:

    Voted, caught up on comments and now ready for our traditional New Year’s diner…pork, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes! lol Off to my daughter’s!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY and time in Davidland! 🙂

  88. VaBeachArchie says:

    breanne…”the high pro glow”! Add to that the sparkly eyes and mega watt smile….gahhhhh! What a GORGEOUS FACE!

  89. Anita says:

    Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best in 2013! ! There are so many wonderful memories of 2012 even though David was only around until March. Wow! How amazing is that?!! The pic David sent us is certainly the best New Year’s gift I can remember getting!! Thank you FOD for all that you do and for posting that beautiful picture!

    Kim-A David and Pitbull duet? Hmmm….Doesn’t Pitbull mostly perform Rap?

  90. kimk says:

    Alfredo Herz ‏@alfredoherz
    @kariontour @DavidArchie @benantelis @germanhans @altberry @MelindaWEG @annamack23 @K_80 WOW! 2 years already! -HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

  91. kimk says:

    Anita he does.. remember even David said he might want to work with a rapper one day? think he mentioned Eminem?
    Pitbull and Enrique
    lol ok I do not see David singing this song.. but as a Spanish artist
    he might have to embrace the latino side of him a little more.
    let me see if I can find a more subdued performance
    one fitting David a little more.
    lol might kill me for sure if he ever did that!!

  92. glitter*girl says:

    just watched the video of taylor and harry having their midnight kiss on NYE and seeing fans freak out and being sad on twitter. i was wondering how will it feel for us when that is david kissing someone? then i realized~he would never do that in public so we won’t ever have to see it! lol 🙂

  93. kimk says:

    here is Marc Anthony and Pitbull
    Let It Rain Over Me

    lol oh boy certainly not modest is hottest..
    maybe David won’t be the next big latino artist
    but hey you never know?
    still trying to find a mild vid with pitbull in it.
    ha getting a little hot in here!
    they sure do like women!

  94. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol that whole thing is cracking me up. kind of like when Justin Bieber and Selena started dating.
    fangirls.. for whatever reason they consider their idol to be their bf I suppose?

  95. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ yeah harry and justin and david are fantasy BFs for sure lol! heard on the radio this morning that taylor/harry and justin/selena were all in utah together skiing. wonder how they are able to do that without causing a complete media/fan frenzy happening as soon as they are spotted?!

  96. kimk says:

    new song with Christina Aguilera and Pitbull no vid yet
    Feel This Moment

    very dancy
    he has done duets with JLo and Shakira too
    and lol no I am not posting them
    think he is too much of a hot tamale for David
    oh well.. thinking my dream of David as the new Enrique has gone poof
    but that’s ok too.. don’t want to self destruct if ever I saw it anyway. 🙂
    does anybody have any latin videos of popular singers that are David rated?
    I can’t find any.
    they sure do like love!!
    and stuff!

  97. kimk says:

    glittergirl don’t think folks know they will be there and that how it works? if they linger then the trouble starts.
    like the time there was a crowd when Selena and Justin went to a movie and some crazy ensued and think JB slugged a photog?

  98. sarahhazel says:

    Wow, Pitbull sure is busy doing collabs with big-time artists! Well, he kinda worked with David in Somos El Mundo, didn’t he?….LOL…would be interesting if they do a duet!

  99. sarahhazel says:

    Amanda Schuren ‏@amandapaiiigex3

    I feel for you one direction fans, if I ever saw @DavidArchie in the situation Harry is in it would break my heart.

  100. kimk says:

    Bruno Mars got famous with this song..
    B.O.B. collab
    Nothing On You

  101. sarahhazel says:

    Crush Kids’ Cancer ‏@TheKidsChapter

    41 ornaments and 7 calendars were sold, with those proceeds being donated to Crush Kids Cancer as our Christmas/Bday gift to @DavidArchie!

  102. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Afternoon everyone and the Happiest of New Years. Pastel Your post is excellent. That tweet from David was the best surprise and gift to us fans. His eyes light up the world and his smile is a ray of sunshine. Love being on this journey. David has brought us love and happiness. He lifts us up when we might be down and always keeps us on a positive road. Thee is no other person I would choose to be a fan of. He lights up my life and gives me hope. He is an angel on earth and we are so privileged to be a part of his humble and giving life.

  103. kimk says:

    speaking of collabs
    sure wouldn’t mind a collab with Bruno Mars!!
    gah at the thought!

  104. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    breanne, Already put in my votes. We are giving Musiqtone a good run. Hip Hip Hooray.

  105. kimk says:

    think it is silly not letting a guy and girl do what they wish..
    but as I remember Donny Osmond had to hide he even had a girlfriend
    then he married young and well we all know how his career is doing
    sill girl fans
    but then again Donny sang kind of silly love songs

    cute adorable and I loved him too but lol
    got past The Puppy Love stage real quick

  106. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Today’s video pick of the day; Wherever You Are Pyropalooza, Mall of Asia, Manila Philippines. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6EHM8oYWAg

  107. kimk says:

    by the way I think Donny is a nice guy.. just not a serious artist.

  108. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl- 😆 😆 😀 😀 May be marry Jeff Archuleta. 😆

  109. Anita says:

    kimk-Thanks for the link! I’ve actually heard that song many times. As long as David Doesn’t make overly sexed up videos like J Lo, and his performances aren’t that way either, I’ll be OK with whatever David does. Knowing David, I highly doubt he would anyway. I’m with you though, David would probably kill me if he sang “I Like It!” LOL!! I do remember David mentioning that he really liked Eminem. A rapper recording/performing a song with David really wouldn’t be my cup of tea, but if per chance he does, I certainly think that if I loved the song aside from that, with David’s stellar vocals, I’d buy it! You’re right Kim! David would surely benefit from collaborating with one of the very popular artists right now.

  110. Amanda Jane says:

    Hi all! Feels so good to comment, I feel like I’ve been MIA too much lately! Lurked a lot, but no time to comment. Got a puppy last week and it’s my first so I’ve been freaked out! But I’m sure I’ll get more comfortable with her as the weeks go by.

    Anyways, that pic yesterday totally made my 2012! 🙂 After we made it past Christmas and his birthday I just didn’t think we’d get much then wham, a pic! 🙂

  111. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    About David kissing another girl in public. Don’t think that will happen, but I know I will be the happiest person to find out that David has found someone to share the rest of his life with. I’m praying, I will be around to witness that day. 🙂

  112. kimk says:

    Anita just know there is a way to do both.. keep who he is but not let it all hang out?
    ha too funny.. dead fans passed out in the aisles!

    Ray we really might need you come 2014 if he ever really goes all latino heartthrob on us!!

  113. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Amanda Jane-New puppies are cute. It will take you a little while to get trained. Pets usually wrap you around their little paws. They are worth it. 🙂

  114. Janel aka Nellie says:

    kimk, I know Donny is a nice guy and a family man. He was on The Talk I believe last Father’s Day and his son came on and surprised him that his wife was expecting a baby (and they had been trying a long time). Donny was in tears. I should find that, such a touching moment. Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lq44_2vEs_E

  115. Amanda Jane says:

    sgj – Thanks for your encouragement 🙂 she’s a doll and I’m pretty sure I’m more stressed out about how she’s doing than she is herself. Leave the radio on if your not in the room with her or leave the nightlight on at night and for the most part she’s pleased. 🙂

  116. sarahhazel says:

    A collab with Bruno Mars would be awesome! They have something in common too…B has Filipino blood and many Filipinos love D…..haha!

  117. sarahhazel says:

    Amanda Jane–congrats on your new puppy!….aw, must be really cute….what breed is it?

  118. glitter*girl says:

    sgj~ omg haha! can u imagine if i married jeff and then david is so angry about it that he would hate me the second he met me and then i would be so sad about that that i would get a divorce from jeff just so that david wouldn’t hate me!!! LOL!!! 🙂

  119. cq#DA2014 says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!! Thank you Pastel for the awesome New Years Day post.
    I love the sound of…. David will be returning to his career NEXT YEAR!!!!

    Kimk, I think that Donny Osmond is a good entertainer, but just can’t compare him to David, I always thought that Donny had kinda a “milktoast” (bland) persona. Imo, David can sing circles around him. I think the only thing they share is their religion. I know that Donny has a fantastic career and I don’t have anything against him at all, but I feel that David has more depth, richness and soul to his voice and personality. I know that when he returns he will be able to completely let loose and show all us fans the awesome singer/dancer/entertainer that he has been holding back.

  120. Anita says:

    kimk-David not letting it all hang out! Exactly!! I just know he’s going to have tons of fans requesting a Spanish album big time when he comes back! His best bet would be to work with an actual Latino Music record producer. Gloria Estefan’s husband would be a perfect choice I think!


  122. kimk says:

    cq Donny compared himself to Justin Bieber once in an interview I saw on ABC I think the topic was his hair. he is just different then David.. as a youngen I was enamored with him like I was David Cassidy etc.
    anyway.. David is shaping up to put himself into the serious category just as long as he is able to write on a deeper level or collaborate with folks say like Ed Sheeran or Jason that do?
    Jason Mraz
    I won’t give Up
    great song and would love to hear David sing this one day!

  123. kimk says:

    Anita that would be great.. their daughter is one fabulous guitar player too!

  124. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl- You make me 😆

  125. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk- You really amaze me. You sure know a lot about music and musicians. Your husband is a musician,too. Does he favor any one in particular??

  126. Hi! everyone, Had a nice time with son, daughter , brother and a couple of grandsons. They just left.
    Anita, Emilio estefan has been one of my choices to collaborate with David.
    He knows Davids vocals from Somos el mundo.
    Amanda Hi! glad your here with us. The more the merrier.Congrats on your new puppie.
    Sgj! hi!, It sounds so nice to say David will be back next year.
    Yes God Willing we will be here to welcome David home and go to his first/mine concert.
    Sarahhazel, i will keep voting, will try to get 300 if it lets me.

  127. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol what are you talking about? you crack me up.

  128. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ thankyou so much for sharing that idea! i love it! it’s so easy and it makes the cupcakes sweeter, moister, and with an interesting flavor. the strawberry and grape taste great together. now i have to think of what combination i will try next! 🙂

  129. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ it goes back to the comment i made this morning about seeing his name on my BF’s FB. but obviously it was a different jeff archuleta! lol

  130. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Linda- Glad your back. Hope you had a nice time with family. We sure got a fantastic surprise from our guy. He’s the best. He looks so happy. Makes me happy. Sorry to hear about the critters. Hopefully you will nip them in the bud.

  131. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Oh cripes, now I have to make dinner. BBL I hope

  132. kimk says:

    sgj he is.. always worried my neighbors will knock on my door and ask my son to turn down the music. rofl but my son is not the issue. he loves older rock like Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson.. older Genesis the most I think and when Peter Gabriel was in it. his pet project right now is taking The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (1975 I think?) and doing it all digitally. midi I think you call it. he is quite good at most instruments just not drums but that doesn’t stop him. lol only issue I have is I hear the same thing or part over and over again.
    keeps him busy and happy and so for that I am grateful.

  133. kimk says:

    glitter girl oh ok.. too funny. well we certainly do keep ourselves busy with all this!

  134. Amanda Jane says:

    sarah – a dachshund/terrier mix, but she definitely looks a lot like her dachshund mother. Just 2 lbs of fur and sass!

    I really can’t believe it’s 2013 already…2014 is on the horizon (not that I want to wish the year away or anything, but yeah!)

  135. Glitter girl 🙂 you are too funny. I love how you dream up all these dramas.

    Sarahhazel,, got my 200 in.

    Sgj,, Thank you hopefully i can control them. 😆

    Very costly to get my house sprayed.

  136. Shanny in Australia says:

    If david kissed his gf/wife in public, i’d be ecstatic. As long as it was done decently and with decorum – which i’m sure it would be of course. I want him to experience love and to be loved.
    (She just better treat him real good and be worthy of him lol. )

    Kim…my hubby has a drum set he likes to bang on. Lets just say there is only one applicable word for it….Tolerate.

  137. glitter*girl says:

    thanks linda! i try 🙂 lol

  138. glitter*girl says:

    shanny~ i agree, and it begs the question~ what if the fans do not like the girl he chooses and how will that affect his career? will be very interesting to see how things unfold in the future! and also, will it be better for his career if he marries a regular mormon girl or a well know well liked celebrity girl? these questions and many more are swirling thru my mind for no apparent reason lol 🙂

  140. Shanny in Australia says:

    Just watched that donny video…lol, he sure is a lady’s man and an entertainer! lol
    And that moment between him and his son was very sweet, kinda intimate amongst all the frenzy, especially if you look directly at their eyes. Brought tears to my eyes.

  141. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–you marrying who???….you are way too funny!!! 🙂

  142. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–thanks for the EL link!…..CONGRATS TO DAVID AND NA!!!
    thanks to all the go-getters who voted! Woot!!!

  143. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–hopefully I could put in 300 today.

  144. glitter*girl says:

    sarah~ 🙂

  145. Shanny in Australia says:

    Yay for Nandito Ako and David and Jasmine! Great job Archies! 🙂

    Glitter girl…can’t really know how the fans will react – definitely lots of chatter over it I think. I tend to think….if we can survive him announcing a mission and then leaving for 2 years, we can survive him getting married. lol
    And hmmm…i just really, really hope that no matter who he chooses that the fans will treat her and their relationship with the upmost respect. I have very definite views on how I would like her to be – and of course it’s extremely likely she won’t meet all my wish-list requirements (or at least ‘appear’ to meet all those requirements from the limited knowledge we will have of her) but I will honour her, no matter who she is because if david chooses her then she must be pretty special. Again…that would be my biggest concern…that she/they wouldn’t be treated respectfully.

  146. Shanny in Australia says:

    Glitter – I think when it comes to choosing a wife, david won’t care who is best for his career.
    But obviously what is best for his career, would be a high profile person. Lots of celebs increased their popularity by who they dated/married. Selena Gomez, Katie Holmes, Angelina Jolie, etc etc.

  147. Anita says:

    Linda-I also thought since Emilio has already worked with David, that is another reason why it would be a perfect match!

    Kim-Yes! Holy Moly, can that girl play guitar!

  148. glitter*girl says:

    shanny~ david seems like the type who would marry a regular person but then i think~how well do we really know him? we know he is secretive so he maybe he really does prefer the rich celebrity girls and he’s just hidden it well LOL! i think jasmine would be a good match for him being she is also a serious religious person like david but also very beautiful and glamorous yet down to earth and a loving family oriented type person.

  149. David had a bad experience with female friends, don’t want to call them girlfriends because people take it the wrong way.

    Remember Mietra, when Ryan made a comment about who David would take to prom, if he went.

    They showed her face on tv and she got threat letters and fans were very mean towards her. It scared her away. I don’t blame her.

    I think they were then very young fans. never the less David would be very careful about that subject. Who can blame him.

  150. Congrats
    ,, Nandito Ako, David Archuleta, Jasmine Curtis Smith. All you Archie around the world Rawk.

    Now we need to vote on Startriga, & Musiqtone, MYX, Chart Central Hit list.
    We can do this for David. Lets keep his name going. Remember he will be back next year!

    That sounds so good!!!

  152. Josie! bummer!, But you have one now, isn’t he so sweet?

  153. josie says:

    Linda~ I think he was happy to hear from us. 🙂 Kinda struggling with his hair being that short, but man…his eyes still show exactly what he’s feeling, don’t they? How can anyone not love him…seriously.

    josie ha buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………

  160. kimk says:

    kind of think it is not fair that the ladies dress nicely and their hair is not shaved.
    ha not trying to start anything but hey.. think the guys have rights too.

  161. kimk says:

    on that note.. would hate for the ladies to dress like that and have their heads shaved…

  162. kimk says:

    on another note.. not sure it is a good idea for him to knock on doors looking like this..


  163. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL….think he looks more “dangerous” now….hehe……

  164. got my 300 votes will try and go for 400 before i go to bed.

  165. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–on my 3rd set of votes now!

  166. kimk says:

    sarahhazel lol then it is a good idea he is not knocking on your door.
    oh boy.. if ever he did on any of ours?
    no wonder why they sent him to Chile!!!!

  167. kimk says:

    I remember Mietra and the hate mail she got.. no wonder David keeps things to himself.
    he once in an interview in Asia I
    don’t remember which one but he said when he does start to date he will be keeping it to himself.
    hey never know..
    might have someone back home waiting for her missionary to return.

  168. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–bet they (the Church peeps) did a lot of research on where to send him…and US was probably was not even on the list.

  170. kimk says:

    sarahhazel oh I bet! kind of like him being sent to Chile.. coming back with a Spanish accent and a feeling for the culture is not bad at all!! 🙂

  171. josie says:

    kimk~ I agree with you there, haha. If the guys have to do it, then so should the girls.

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

    josie–hope Kari sends him the great news very soon!

  176. Candy says:

    Me personally-I hope when David finally has a gf he plants a long liplock on her in the public eye. Have my own reasons…its karma baby! LOL

  177. OoO says:

    My dream for me is David covering this song Brazil by Johnny Mathis it has the Brazillian moves almost like a Samba that will be a history has to be Johnny Mathis version. I don’t know to bring over the video.

  178. Candy says:

    OHHH I love that David, Jasmine and Nandito Ako won awards! Power to the voting fans!

  179. kimk says:

    been looking for latino artists in general

    Selena is good
    what I noticed in this video
    she is beautiful, not ashamed of her body, can dance really well and has a fabulous voice.


    hope David will dance for us if he records a Spanish cd!!

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

    Hey Linda!

    Congrats to David & Jasmine & NA & everyone
    associated with it for the awards 😀

  181. Candy! Archies are Go-Getters. I’m so proud of them.

  182. kimk says:

    found this gentleman..

    Alejandro Sanz – No Me Compares

    no idea what he is singing about but would assume it is about love.
    David could blow him out of the water.
    only thing not sure if David would have a vid like that.. they are pretty close.
    he seems popular from the views

  183. kimk says:

    something about guys and guitars.. hope he IS practicing in Chile!

    Luis Fonsi

  184. kimk says:

    duet with Luis Fonsi would be great!!

  185. Kimk, the title of the song is NO ME COMPARES ( Don’t compare me).

  186. kimk says:

    Candy lol! got no problem with that at all!

  187. Kimk, Luis Fonsi is a good choice. Luis knows David and his singing abilities. They would make a good duet in a spanish song.

  188. kimk says:

    Linda thanks. by the tone of the song I felt I could post it. rofl watch one of these days I post something omgosh! apologize ahead of time.
    think there is a hole where male latino singers are concerned right now?
    Enrique for sure but not any younger ones like David would be who can really sing?

  189. kimk says:

    Linda hope he records a Spanish cd.. and tours with him!
    lol such a dreamer I know!!!!

  190. kimk says:


    David singing some Luis!!
    said he would love to collaborate with him!

  191. kimk says:

    not sure who else is singing this.. but all are great!!
    Aqui Estoy Yo

  202. The picture was Davids Thank you Picture.

  203. Hi! Pocoelsy, i missed you, glad you are OK. Good to have you back.

  204. nora says:

    Hi everybody, just watched that New Video kimk posted, it was really great, David Sang White Christmas, did a great job, the person who filmed the video said that he had heard that TOSOD CD was illegally downloaded 600,000 times, does that seem possible? If so that is awful, fans just hurt their artist, and cost them money.

    Congrats to David and Jasmine and Nandito Ako, they deserve it. Where is our DVD? Maybe someday, I hope.
    Goodnight Beth.

  207. pocoelsy says:

    Hi there LindaFromCali#2014,

    Thank you 😀 I’m sooo happy to be back too :D, not being able to access the fansites was a torture!! I miss you all.

  208. Candy says:

    Nora-while its tempting to blame the lack of sales for TOSOD on illegal downloading, a part of the blame falls on both Jive and David. Neither were exactly supportive of the album.

  209. Candy says:

    Beth-I anticipate and welcome your reply 🙂

  210. pocoelsy says:

    David is in Galaxie Magazine (Malaysia) again 🙂 , what can I say, they’re probably bitten by the Archubugs haha they love our David and I love them for that pic.twitter.com/QRRXnlzO

  211. Shanny in Australia says:

    Josie – the look in his eyes tells me he is ‘thrilled’. Think he feels loved by his fans.
    Makes me happy. 🙂

    Glitter girl – i’ve said it before…despite everyone wishing for a jasmine, david get together….i think they are far from right for each other.

  212. pocoelsy says:

    Oh!! sorry the link is not working !! I try again

  213. glitter*girl says:

    david better be on at least one of the entertainment magazines when he returns!!!

  214. glitter*girl says:

    on the cover of one

  215. breanne says:

    TOSOD is one of my favorite albums by David!! So many great songs: Good Place, TOSOD, Parachutes & Airplanes, MKOP, Things Are Gonna Get Better, Complain, Falling Stars, etc. LOVE it and still listen to it a lot!! <3

    Vote 1 song hourly for Rainbow Remix, Everybody Hurts & Broken on Chart Central:

  216. pocoelsy says:

    Oh dang !! i’ve lost my computer skill !!! haha have to practice more !!

    Candy, sooo agree with you about TOSOD sales…both Jive and David were responsible !!! I don’t care about Jive but kinda don’t understand about David… why or what’s going on then…it’s a pity!! I love that album.

  217. kimk says:

    ahh the Archustare!!

    geesh he is going to kill someone one day with those eyes!!

  218. nora says:

    Candy I totally agree with you, but 6000,000 illegally down loads seem like quite a bit to me. I now Jive and David didn’t push it much, that is no reason to steal somebody’s music, not saying that is what you said, people who do that are not true fans of an artist. I really don’t know what was going on in David’s life at the time. I just think it is wrong, and I know you do too. JMO

  219. Shanny in Australia says:

    I remember in an interview jasmine and eula did before david arrived in the philippines…..she said she expected there to be rumours about them being in a relationship with david.
    Perhaps uncoincidentally that forecast of jasmine’s was very accurate. I’m sure she wanted and likes the rumours.

    Skip to Brad pitt and Angelina Jolie…..when Brad and Jennifer were still married….and brad and angelina were preparing to film Mr and Mrs Smith together….i read an article saying Angelina had a history of getting into relationships with her co-stars, even when they were happily married and because of that Jen better watch out. Well…what happened? Exactly that – Hello Angelina, goodbye Jennifer.

    Some woman know they’re beautiful and are expert at using it to their full advantage….

  220. kimk says:


    pocoelsy ‏@pocoelsy1
    @FODFansofDavid @onedavidnet @kariontour nice to see @DavidArchie in Galaxie mag new year issue, It’s a good sign 😉

  221. kimk says:

    glittergirl there you go.. pocoelsy just posted what is a poster my guess?

  222. kimk says:

    Shanny lol us women.. but then again it is BRAD PITT!!!

  223. kimk says:

    funny to this day my hubs gets his nose out of whack when I watch anything with Brad in it..
    what a hottie that guy is!!
    hmm wonder why..

  224. Candy says:

    Ha, who can resist the Bradster!!

  225. Shanny in Australia says:

    I don’t think david was disinterested in promoting TOSOD, I think he was disinterested in promoting the song pushed on him by Jive – Something ’bout Love. He wanted Elevator.
    Think that was an extremely difficult time for david. Remember it was before the release of that album that he sung Be Still My Soul and cried while singing it.
    Poor guy. Glad he got to take his break and serve a mission. Recollect himself after all that he went through.

  226. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk….hehe thank you <3

  227. glitter*girl says:

    that look david gave that girl in that video, well there are just no words to even describe it! still wondering if that cute brown eyed girl ever saw that video and if so, what on earth must have gone thru her mind??!!

  228. kimk says:

    pocoelsy wish he was more popular here!

    ha still time though.. never know GQ!!


  229. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, you pips. lol
    I guess you could also say…who can resist the Archuleta?
    😆 😉

  230. Candy says:

    Shanny-May have to disagree with you on that one, it was Mike who was interested in pushing Elevator, he had free access to Davids ear 24/7 and once he planted the seed David ran with it. I also do think it came at a time when David was torn with timing going on a mission, he owed Jive a third album and delivered. He talked about building a foundation in January of 2011, shortly after the release of TOSOD but it was never mentioned again.

  231. kimk says:

    what was on is mind?
    lol.. she was beautiful and he is a guy!
    ok maybe the best one I ever knew but still a guy!

  232. kimk says:

    Candy bet they are also the ones who tried to stop him with this last tour. ok a guess but makes sense.
    oh and Mike.. think he had David’s ear.

    my fav version of Elevator
    one from Z100!
    gah to the max!


  233. pocoelsy says:


    I can’t and don’t want to imagine how difficult it was for him during Jive era, if “elevator” or “the other side of down” was pushed enough I believe TOSOD would be a big hit I totally love The Otherside Of Down ( the song) 🙁 .

    Gotta go !! restart my comp. to update some programs. Nice to see you all again.

    Have a good night/day all, see ya 🙂

  234. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco – I LOVE that he’s still getting in magazines despite being gone. 🙂
    Glad your back! 🙂

  235. Candy says:

    kimk-you may be right abut Jive being the ones trying to stop the MKOCT, they own the rights to many of his songs and Im sure they wanted their piece of the pie. My other thought would be Witchy-Pooh!

  236. cq#2014 says:

    Shanny, I really don’t think that Elevator (eventhough I really like Elevator now, it took a while to warm up to it)would of been more successful than Something ’bout love. I guess no one will ever know.
    I sometimes think if David’s career was on fire and he had a lot of hits, would he been able to do what he is doing now, with the privicy he is having. Say if he had the celeb status of a JB, could he of been able to go on a mission in peace?

  237. kimk says:

    cq no way could he of gone.

    Candy ha witchy pooh.

  238. josie says:

    Brad grew up in a city that I’m familiar with, & his brother’s on the city council. He just did a commercial for Virgin Mobile, & seems like a pretty nice guy, but probably not the best actor in the world. Unless he was purposely being deadpan~ I couldn’t tell. lol.

    SBL had all the makings of a hit. 🙁 To me, Elevator…..not so much.

  239. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, thanks for your thoughts. I’ll share a few more of mine just out of pure conversation – not trying to be argumentative…
    I fully agree that Mike had David’s ear and there is every chance Mike was only to glad to promote Elevator with David…but I highly suspect that David wanted Elevator too. The reason I think that is because of two things closely related….1. we know David is a very highly spiritual person who tries to listen for and follow the leading of God in his life and 2. Elevator was written in what…a 2 hour period?…after he had a dream. I seriously think david felt that Elevator was given to him from God and because of that, it was the song that he should promote first. Just my thoughts and feelings on it.

  240. kimk says:

    well.. he will be back next year
    and there is no reason to hold back after that.

    lol lordy lordy.. hope we all need Ray to save us!! 😀

  241. Candy says:

    cq-Ive had many of the same thoughts…knowing what we know now and looking back…did David himself slow down the wheel of progress…Im think he probably did…with good reason.

  242. kimk says:

    Shanny what has Elevator and God have to do with each other?

  243. kimk says:

    oh man.. David and a blue shirt!
    Falling Stars
    this one.. yikes!


  244. Candy says:

    Shanny-I wouldnt have made that statement if I hadnt heard the words with my own ears…right from the horses mouth. How different we see things, I felt Elevator came from his confusion as to who he was going to select as his manager, WEG ended up being his choice. His dream ended up being his worst nightmare!

  245. Candy says:

    kimk-I was going to ask the same question.

  246. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ no i meant what must have gone thru her mind just knowing david looked at her that way!!! can u imagine?! lol

  247. Shanny in Australia says:

    I also think Jive and WEG are good guesses at who was trying to prevent the tour.

    Cq, I don’t necessarily think Elevator would have been a hit – just think that was the one david was wanting as the lead single. I actually think Falling Stars would have.had the most commercial success.
    I actually like what you said about if he was hugely popular he wouldn’t have been able to go serve his mission….evidence again that there is a masterplan for all of this. 🙂

  248. kimk says:

    think David said in his interviews in Central Park (ha same day he found Almond) that Elevator was about finding a manager?

  249. glitter*girl says:

    she should have at least given david her phone number. maybe she did. we will never know! 🙁 unless 2 years from now she is the one he gets married to! lol!

  250. kimk says:

    glittergirl from what I remember she was there to see Cook. not really interested as I recall? ha go figure.

  251. glitter*girl says:

    unless of course he looks at everyone that way and the camera just happened to capture it that one time LOL!

  252. kimk says:

    glittergirl David seems a bit shy to ask for a phone number but hey hope he did!

  253. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ omg really??! lol that’s just like nandito ako! the care that didn’t care about him got his attention. what’s with that anyway? lol

  254. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol..bye again Poco. 🙂

    Josie – Brad’s brother is all over the place here advertising Virgin. Think that is the idea too – he’s supposed to be the bland, boring ‘other pitt’ who can’t act. 😆
    Think he’s using his brothers celebrity to get a bit of his own celebrity lol…but who can blame him…sure Brad doesn’t mind sharing it with his bro a bit. 🙂

  255. glitter*girl says:

    oops~ the girl that didn’t care

  256. nora says:

    Candy I recall David saying there were a lot of things going on in Jive, people were leaving, I think also Jive wanted him to go in another direction, sony was in trouble, Jeff Fesstor left, then Witchey was there, I still remember him saying people were trying to stop his MKOC tour, and there are people who hate my guts no matter what you do. I think it is hard for us to really know what happened about TOSOD, we can just guess. Only David knows. All I know there were 6000,000 downloads that he didn’t get credit for, if that amount is true. JMO

  257. kimk says:

    David is such a cutie.. think this girl was checking his height as I recall?
    she was cute.. see him pull back?
    too adorable


  258. kimk says:

    glittergirl isn’t it always that way? you want what isn’t given to you on a silver platter? not sure about David though.
    think he just thought she was pretty. and she was!!

  259. kimk says:

    off to bed now.. think I have caused enough trouble for one day!
    I LOVE that kari gave us a lil tease of things to come!!
    also the pic from David and the CHile videos??
    we are blessed!!!!!

  260. Shanny in Australia says:

    What exactly did you hear from the horses mouth Candy?

    Anyway, i’m not saying Mike wasn’t pushing the song,.just that I think david also wanted the song.

    What does God and Elevator have to do with each other? Yes….elevator WAS a result of david’s confusion over which management…but dreams are also a way that spiritual people believe God sometimes communicates with His children. And when david took that dream and it turned into a song so easily and quickly, I can just see him wondering if perhaps the dream was given to him by God.

    I know he said it was about his confusion over management…and it was…but if he also felt it was from God, I doubt he’d share something so intimate as that with us.

    Sigh…i know you ladies are going to think I’m nuts lol….but that’s what I think. Maybe it’s an LDS way of looking at the world or maybe it’s just a ‘Shanny’ way of looking at the world. ~shrug~

  261. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys……saw an article today that says middle age is 45-60…..So I guess after 60 it is all down hill….I am pushing 51 and I sure don’t feel like I’m headed for old age……Maybe David will keep me young…..Miss Vicki

  262. josie says:

    Shanny~ Hi. Why do you think WEG wouldn’t have wanted the tour? I’d never thought of them as the “someone”….So you see Brad’s brother alot on TV, huh? If he’s supposed to be the “bland” Pitt, he’s got that down to a tee. lol. My understanding was that the commercials were made to somehow benefit the humanitarian organization that he founded or is involved with. Like, he made the deal w/ Virgin for that purpose.

    tami-lyn~ 🙂 I remember everyone talking about the girl that David looked at, & at the time we all thought she had no idea he’d looked at her at all. Like…she was oblivious & busy talking to her friend. lol.

  263. Shanny in Australia says:

    Glitter girl….to be honest, despite how I love to squee and joke over that video….i think he looks like that at a lot of people. Could also be that she leaned in for a hug before he got a chance to see who he was hugging, so he quickly glanced up to take a look…but it could also be that she caught his attention. I like thinking that she caught his attention. lol

  264. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey tami-lyn was that that the pretty girl during the fan line up that David took a double take at…..She looked away he he stared back…..LOL….Remember he said he is attracted to the eyes……Miss Vicki

  265. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nora…’hate his guts’. Those are strong and sad words. 🙁

    Josie….just seems to me that Jive and Weg are.the only ones who might have reasons to not want him to tour. Can’t think of anyone else. You know…contractual obligations or people wanting their cut of the pie from those two companies, maybe people left with a sour taste in their mouth after he ditched them. That sort of thing. No hard evidence, just a bit of speculation.

    Nite nite Kimmy. 🙂

  266. cq#2014 says:

    Shanny, I agree with you about FS. Yes, it had the most commerical appeal.

  267. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Can’t believe I have gotta go back to work tomorrow and my son is going snowboarding at Snowshoe West VA tomorrow….Life is not fair…..Miss Vicki

    On the Brad Pitt’s brother thing…yeah I see him on billboards too. Don’t know anything about humanitarian companies he founded…just see him advertising for virgin. Good on him if he’s giving the proceeds to charity. I have no hard feelings towards the guy – in fact I see the humour in the adverts. 🙂

  270. meganloves2lol says:

    i was wondering if anyone could help me with something. my 17th birthday is a week from friday, i want to get a picture of david on my cake. this will be the 5th one with him on it. but anyway i can’t seem to find a good picture that is also somewhat recent. can anyone give me a link to a picture of david from like the past year? thanks!

  271. Candy says:

    HOLYMOLY- David & Matt done kilt me again! WOOZA!

  272. Candy, you got that right. That Matt Clayton can sure take some awesome photos, But the model ain’t too bad either.

  273. josie says:

    Shanny~ Hm. Interesting speculation. I guess we’ll never know. But how could anyone hate his guts? People can be so heartless sometimes…:( He’s even on billboards in Australia? Wow. lol…And yes, you are nuts. lol. Just kidding. Actually, I’d keep talking, but I need to leave for now. ‘Night. 🙂

  274. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh Miss Vicki. It sucks being a responsible adult sometimes doesn’t it. :-/

  275. josie goodnight ((HUGS))

  276. josie says:

    Megan~ Happy Birthday early. 🙂 Sorry I don’t have an answer for you; hopefully someone else can help. Maybe if you email FOD, they might know? That’s cool that you’ve had him on your cake for 5 yrs, though. 🙂 ….’Night, Linda. 🙂

  277. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, lucky I like nuts – preferably salted. lol
    Take care Josie. 🙂

  278. Candy says:

    Megan-what abut the one at the top of the page holding his birthday book. Cant think of a better way to share birthdays.

  279. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, pics like that make me think I better get off the fan train. Too good for my health. lol
    David the chameleon again…yesterday a ‘young david’, today an ‘all growed up david’. lol

    Maybe there’s the pic for you cake Megan 🙂 Happy Soon Birthday by the way! 🙂

  280. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey kimk….That’s the girl in your post from 10:12 PM that David is so attracted to……The eyes have it……Miss Vicki

  281. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Goodnight all….Miss Vicki

  282. Shanny in Australia says:

    How do they get these ‘new’ pics anyway I wonder? Has it been leaked somewhere and AFS were the first to go and do a google search since it was leaked/released?
    Why don’t they just leak them ALL! 🙂

    I wonder if the plan is to release some pics bit by bit in 2013 to help keep us going – definitely a cheaper, easier way to give the fans something. And what about those ‘banked songs’ that were rumoured last year….? Now that’s one rumour I would love to have be true!

  283. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nite nite Miss Vicki. Sleep well. 🙂

  284. janey79 says:

    Shanny, the Matt Clayton photo was not leaked. I saw it on Matt’s new site a few minutes ago. The site actually launched about 11 hours ago, according to FB.

    The new Matt Clayton picture is amazing!! I need CPR folks. David is a man with a thousand faces. 🙂

  287. Shanny in Australia says:

    Thanks Janey. Hopefully more david pics will pop up on the website then! Squeee! Crossing fingers.

  288. Bychance says:

    Lisa – you got that right! I have never known anyone with so many different looks. It continually amazes me. He can sing anything, he can look a million different ways….is he really just one person?!
    Love the pose, btw!….and the boots,….and the vest….and the hair…….

  289. Lisa @txarchie says:

    Bychance- And the eyes, and the watch. Who else looks like this while sitting on a box? Many great actors have many different looks. David could be a great actor. He gets into character even while singing. Destined for superstardom!

  290. Lisa,, I agree with you. He is destined for superstardom.
    Good night everyone. Going to vote and then to bed. See you tomorrow.

  291. archumazing says:

    meganloves2lol: Some of my favorite pics of David were taken within the past year. I particularly love the Bench photoshoot. Just go to Google Images and type “David Archuleta Bench”. Here’s one of my favorites… http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/bench%20fix

    holy carp!

    boy is well

    LOLOL. No sleeping allowed in this fanbase, kim! 😉

  295. frio says:

    dang. Two links = moderation. Ok, got it.

  296. frio says:

    (anywho lemme try again)

    He’s a stud in his own way 😉

    Umm, put these side by side…kinda oxymoronic. heh.

  297. Shanny in Australia says:

    Frio, makes me feel weird seeing those two pics side by side. Not sure why.
    Also I notice that I am more drawn to the missionary one – think it’s because his face and light is so open and happy there. Makes me feel like this is the real david just being his normal, infectious self. The posed photo, while he looks great makes me feel like that is an affectation – he’s acting so to speak.

    Thats normal and obvious really. Just putting them side by side like that makes me appreciate how real and down-to-earth david is. Love him for always staying true to himself, when so many artists live.tbeir whole careers in that ‘posed photo’ state.

  298. jhen says:

    Wow! The new picture from Matt Clayton i manly! I love pic

  299. Shanny in Australia says:

    Am I talking in riddles today? I feel like I’m not explaining myself well today… lol

  300. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jhen – I think it’s the pose and the seriousness.
    I like the watch. And the sideburns lol

  301. Shanny in Australia says:

    It’s amazing how just a pose says so much. This one – the pose is so mature. And remember the one where he is squatting down looking reflective. Both WOW photo’s. And lets not forget that leaked pic of him in the strippy t-shirt leaning back on a step or something. That pose got lots of reactions too.

  302. jhen says:

    Shanny- wonder if that pic is for another alb
    um, wishful thinking.

  303. pocoelsy says:


    Put the pics side by side and wow…!!! they look like the same David but then not lol I don’t make any sense here …haha look like they are brothers …one looks so mature ..hot…smaxeyyy the other one just like our own brother…innocent smiley..happy and friendly… love them both 🙂

  304. jhen says:

    I like to hear When the heart fall out, which was not release. Pls. leak it lol

  305. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- glad your back, I thought your busy this holiday season that’s why never see you here

  306. pocoelsy says:

    Hi Shanny, Jhen
    David is just about the most gorgeous guy we’ve ever seen isn’t he, very photogenic WOW I love and hate him for that haha..just kidding…never hate him..envy him may be!!

  307. jhen says:

    David never change, he still baby face in the recent pic from Kari

  308. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- David is photographer dreams. He such a gorgeous guy

  309. pocoelsy says:

    Hi Jhen,

    Nice to see you 😀 , I went back to Bangkok for almost 2 months, internet overthere was so slow (I had to use broadband that’s why) I lurk at any chance but hard to join the fun 🙁 so I kept quiet lol and yes I was very busy too, I’m back at home in Malaysia now so I can come out and play again . Happy new year, hope everything’s going great with you 🙂

  310. pocoelsy says:

    True Jhen !!!

    I really totaly extreamly wonder what’s his secret…what beauty products he’s been using lol… but I guess his beauty comes from within !!! look at him!!! he looks so sparkly-fresh-handsome-beautiful just one look at him can lower one’s blood pressure lol…I can go on for days about his look haha

  311. frio says:

    Hey Shanny, Poco and Jhen 🙂

    Shanny, I completely agree. I also prefer “missionary” David as well, or well just “normal” David. It’s fun to see pics from photo shoots and the like, but at the end of the day the pics I enjoy best are those of D just being himself 🙂

    Why I chose those two to put side by side – it puts things into perspective for me.

    “Love him for always staying true to himself, when so many artists live.tbeir whole careers in that ‘posed photo’ state.” <<< THIS.

  312. frio says:

    poco, haha that makes sense 😉
    He knows when it’s appropriate to pull a pose.

    And argh, yes. To this day I still wonder how he stays so glowy, shiny, shimmery (some exaggeration there). But then again, I kinda do on a non-physical side. He is just a good person, it can’t help but come out of his pores lol, but seriously 🙂

  313. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- David’s beauty reflect from his good soul. The aura from within

  314. Jhen says:

    frio- I like to see normal David. I was fortunate to see some of his normal, not the actor, not the singer and model, a normal young guy who also playful, upset sometimes, a little aggressive, naughty lol But he is really a nice guy, that’s why he glow.

  315. frio says:

    Jhen, lucky you 😀 And good to know David can express earthly emotions (haha just kidding).
    I’d feel lucky to see David the singer/actor/model IRL, but privileged to see David the person.

  316. Shanny in Australia says:

    Was off cooking dinner…
    Glad to know you all understood what I was trying to say. lol

    Yeah, I wouldn’t mind knowing what his photogenic secrets are. I have never been photogenic…wrong angles on my face or something. I was a bit anxious how my wedding pics would come out but thankfully, the photographer must have been especially talented cos they came out ok.

    And yep…think his goodness just oozes out his pores thats why he shines so much. 🙂

  317. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, are you sure those ‘earthly emotions’ weren’t just acting? I’m sure angels can act pretty well too and he did seem like such a natural on Nandito Ako….

  318. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jhen, keeping my fingers crossed for some surprises this year! 🙂

  319. Shanny in Australia says:

    Frio – yeah ‘normal’ smiley david is my favourite. My fav pics are ALWAYS the mega-watt-smile-filled-with-joy pictures.

  320. Jhen says:

    Shanny- David don’t have bad angle lol, but honestly he look good in every angle. No, he is not acting, no one was with him then lol He can express his earthly emotions lol not intentionally but naturally lol, he go with the flow, what he want he will do it.

  321. Jhen says:

    Frio- he is also a human being just like us with a lot of emotions lol, he look like an angel but he is also a human being like all of us.

  322. Jhen says:

    Shanny- I wish the surprises is another album those that not release yet with Matt Clayton pictures cover pic and inside pic.
    I’m hoping that David could tour also in Australia in 2014, so you could see and watch him perform, it’s a different experience, you will want more of him. And so you could meet him in person.

  323. kimk says:

    good morning folks!!

    hmm wonder if there is music to go with that pic? 🙂


  324. Jhen says:

    Kimk- I’m wishing that too, I’m very eager to hear that song When the heart fall out, I want to know the message of the song, I’m dying to hear that lol

  325. Jhen says:

    * Your heart fall out

  326. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jhen, haha…yep I get the impression that seeing david just makes a person want to see him again even more than they wanted to begin with. Like an addiction that just got a whole lot stronger. Maybe I’m really better not knowing what I’m missing out on? lol 😉

    Good morning Kim. Hope I didn’t weird you out to much last night? 🙂

  327. kimk says:

    on Oct 30 @LadyVmusic RT’d this..
    then on Nov 1 she did say she was working on something for David
    no idea what that means
    but it could be about
    When Your Heart Falls Out?
    hopeful wishing perhaps but it sure is fun speculating!
    especially since that fabulous pic just popped up!!! 🙂

    kim ‏@kimak
    ahh @DavidArchie’s stardust falling @ladyvmusic’s way.. ohh to wish on that star to be.. a new song.. http://davidarchuletavn.com/2012/10/02/my-kind-of-perfect-unreleased-song/

    “@sydbk: @LadyVmusic ooh you talked to @davidarchie! I’m jealous haha!” I havent talked to david in person. just working on something 4 him Nov 1

    Victoria Hornღ♫♕❀✿♥☆ ‏@LadyVmusic
    Ok archie fans just to clear this up I haven’t spoken to david as I’m sure you are all aware he’s away at this present time. 🙂

  328. kimk says:

    Shanny lol I am weird to start with.. nope.
    about Elevator.. could be about him thinking about his decision to go on a mission, God and or a new manager no idea.
    but where David is concerned he seems so straightforward not to volunteer info if not true?
    as for dreams.. my feelings they are what your mind is trying to work out in life.

  329. kimk says:

    really.. between the fabulous one up top and this one.. lordy I AM IN HEAVEN!!!


  330. kimk says:

    frio hi! ahh.. we are so darn lucky!!!

  331. frio says:

    kimk, we have the darndest luck! lol

    WOOO 2013! I feel something good coming 😀 (I bet we all do)

  332. Jhen says:

    Shanny- Because David have Magnetic personality that’s why addictive lol And of course his contagious smile, how could you not like him lol

  333. Jhen says:

    I have to take my dinner now, bye for now FOD family.

  334. frio says:

    Regarding this year, I would be more than happy with an EP release. He’s only had one EP released. It’s just he’s been chugging out albums for the past 5 years. Just thinking of other ways he could release music scaled back. But then, wouldn’t the MC pics be used for a physical product? Hmm. Just thinking what’s in store for us this year hehe.

  335. Shanny in Australia says:

    Thanks Kim. 🙂

    See ya Jhen. Nice chatting a little. 🙂

    Frio, i’m wondering what happened to the ‘banked’ songs. But either way…it is obvious old songs can still be released with help from the applicable co-songwriters – like LadyV – so there’s always hope. Gosh I always feel greedy when I ‘hope’ for more david music – hs has given us boatloads already.

    Thanks for finding those LadyV tweets Kim.

  336. kimk says:

    frio EP is good too. but then again he released a whole cd just for a mv?
    will take anything.. a song? a mv? ep? cd?

  337. kimk says:

    Shanny ha well you can always not listen or get it if he does.

  338. frio says:

    Shanny, was thinking he could release these ‘banked’ songs (am only referring to songs written from the previous album cycles), but a whole album’s worth? …well actually yeah that is def possible, just thought it improbable.

    kimk, oh yeah I forgot about FEE EE haha. It wasn’t in my mind since I didn’t purchase it for financial reasons. But I’d take anything as well, so long as it’s new material.

  339. kimk says:

    frio think Rainbow is going to be released to MYX for their countdown this year.. think it is a great way to keep his name/brand alive until he gets back. so far so good!
    and if these new pics are any indication.. his name, face, boots will def not be left behind until he can do it in person!! WHOOP WHOOP!!!!!

  340. kimk says:

    frio could be his time with Sunny he recorded some things knowing he was going away? thing is we have no idea.. always guessing!

  341. pocoelsy says:

    Very interesting topic ladies , I’ll take anything but still can’t see how he’d come out with new songs or album!! Doesn’t a singer needs a lebel to support him, dunno how it works, but still very hopeful .

  342. kimk says:

    zelle13 ‏@zelle13
    Look what I found at @benchtm today…it’s @DavidArchie’s shirt! 🙂


  343. pocoelsy says:

    I’m so grateful for Kari and his team , they did a pretty good job to keep fans interested, the pacing of posting new pics and such are not too bad either
    tho we can never get enough of anything Archuleta!! lol

  344. kimk says:

    pocoelsy not these days but it helps. think you can produce cds yourself if you wish.
    could also be they release only one song?
    there are ways of doing all this.. ton of artists who go their own way.
    didn’t The Civil Wars do that?

  345. frio says:

    kimk, sure hope so! So many possibilities – just know something good’s in store for us. I’d love me a brand spanking new song 🙂

  346. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk, if that’s the case, we are going to be a very happy camper 🙂 I remember Kari said she has a number of unrelease songs in her vault!!, thanks for the info I totally forget about The Civil War !! they did great.

  347. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, everyone!!!
    QUADRUPLE “WOWZA!” on that pic by MC!!!!
    The photoshoot mystery continues!

  348. Shanny in Australia says:

    Testing, testing….

  349. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim…sheesh…if david’s singing there ain’t nobody nor nuthin that will stop my ears from listening! 😆

    As for the ‘banked’ songs. I recall that apparently Jeff told a fan that david had been ‘banking’ songs…this was after the announcement. Can’t remember any more details though. And remember david went through that period when he was working on his own songwriting and he played and sung a few gah-worthy notes on a vlog. And he seemed to be doing some sort of production work with Sunny and at some stage.before he left, didn’t he go to Nashville for a cpuple of meetings and some input on his songwriting?

  350. Shanny in Australia says:

    Speaking of singing…i have always meant to ask…cos I saw some comments that I thought seemed to imply it….when david sang at the devotional during the MTC period, did the fans ever get to hear a recording of that song?

  351. Joanie/suttygal says:

    Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!
    New post is up (but I’m still adding voting links). 🙂 Today for our look back at 2012 fav memories, we’re taking a stroll down “BEGIN. Lane.”
    Have a great day!

  352. glitter*girl says:

    wow awesome side by side photos! i think the real david is on the left. not that the smiley one is fake. i just think he is a serious person who easily smiles for the camera when he’s supposed to. why is it so much fun to analyze him?! will we ever be able to stop? lol!
