Here’s what you need to do Go Getters!  Comment!  Like!  Tweet this!  Post this on your FB account.  Pin it on Pinterest!  Add it to tumblr.  Get the excitement up!

Even More on Running!  On today’s NBC Today Show

Thanks to  @carspn for the heads up!  Watch an intro to a tween marathon segment on NBC’s Today show,  featuring David Archuleta’s Running!!!  Only 12 seconds, but its very recognizable!  After she tweeted about this today, I grabbed the camera in time to record a repeat of this part of the Today Show,  at about 40 minutes after the start of the Today Show.

So you know, this tween marathon segment will run again tomorrow on NBC’s Rock Centre with Brian Williams at 10 pm EST. Who knows, it may run again!

* * * * * *

…and I am still giddy with excitement over this eOne Music relationship!

“It has come to our attention…..”

eOneMusicCanada just MIGHT be a little taken aback by the sudden and unexpected descent of David Archuleta fans on the eOne family.  Take a look at some recent tweets:

INVADE?  Yes, I love the sounds of that!  Launch party FTW!!!!

And Deb (@snowangelzz) had an interesting exchange!  Is there a Day-After-Tomorrow hint in there??  Deb IS on top of her game!

 * * * * * *

And the buzzz continues too!

“A solid and catchy album”… “an endless array of songs”

Some of you might be thinking, wait a minute, isn’t David Archuleta currently in South America serving on a Mormon mission? Yes, that’s right. But he must have recorded an endless array of songs before he left because not only did he release a covers album last year, his label, Entertainment One, is about to release another record.  Read the rest below or here

*  * * * *


David Archuleta has a new album called No Matter How Far coming out March 26. His new label, eOne, has posted first single Don’t Run Away on SoundCloud.

Don’t Run Away was co-written by the Season 7 American Idol runner-up and produced by British music producers David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein (The Nexus).

No Matter How Far, out March 26, will combine newly recorded material with tracks previously unreleased in the USA.

* * * * *

Don’t Run Away” is a song by American singer-songwriter David Archuleta. The track produced by The Nexus (David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein) is confirmed as the first official single taken from his upcoming sixth studio album “No Matter How Far” that’s scheduled for release on March 26th, 2013 via eOne Records. The song is scheduled for release on iTunes in February 19th. The official demo was leaked online last year.

****  Editor’s Note:  No confirmation on the iTunes release date ****

 Do you know who Eric Alper is?  He is E1 Entertainment Distribution’s Director of Media Relations and Label Acquisitions.  He  is also the Music Correspondent for CTV’s Canada AM and named to Billboard Magazine 140 Best on Twitter.  Follow him @thatericalper

Don’t Run Away

Unofficial lyrics ~ as transcribed by Janel Woodbury

Janel wants to sing this song, so she sat down and wrote down the lyrics.  Unofficial until we get them from the official source

 When something’s wrong and too much to handle,

Try to find some peace of mind, let it go

Wait a minute you know this road is gonna leave you on overload. Yeah…

‘Cause somebody cares, yeah

*(chorus) I can see you hurting, turn around, I will be right there, don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run awaaaaayyy,

When I reach out to you, look around, I will be right here, don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run awaaaaayyy, (jump to ** after 2nd time singing chorus *** after last time) tonight, tonight. Hmmmmm

Don’t make a sound, I’ll be your voice, you don’t need to be afraid anymore. I’ll shine a light out in the dark, guide you here no matter how far, oh-oh yea!

“Cause somebody cares, oh yeah *chorus

**Open up, let it all out tonight, yeah. Open up and everything will be alright. *(chorus)

***Turn around……don’t run away, don’t run away, I’ll be right here, oh-oh-oh, oh, tonight, tonight.

Voting links!

Here is the link to yesterday’s post, where you can find the voting links 🙂

Yesterday, Kari tweeted support for the voting efforts and the efforts of JackRyan in promoting the Entertainer of the Year poll.  Earlier this week we linked  you to TheDavidChronicles where JR explained the importance of this particular poll.  So many of you have done in your support.   Team Archuleta rarely mentions these polls, so this one must be an important one.

I’m fine in dealing with some twitter traffic in this area to support!  Remember, utilize and access a variety of social media to learn about and promote David’s music.  Link to FB, the OS, MySpace, and Youtube.  Post on tumblr and Pinterest too!  Pheed is a new social medium where posting media links is much easier.  Mix your social media up!!!

Here’s Kari’s tweet thanking JR and all of you!

BTW, here is the link to our Pinterest account!  Follow us!

American Idol:  The finance ledger

 The article discusses the costs of getting ‘in the door’ regarding American Idol, and the possible pay offs.  Worth reading!  A few David Archuleta mentions:

            • To earn a shot, David Archuleta traveled from Salt Lake City to San Diego and Jordin Sparks flew from Glendale, Ariz., to Seattle.
            • The gamble paid off. According to Forbes, Archuleta made $1.4 million and Sparks made $1.8 million from June 2009 to May 2010.
            •  For a little “Idol” reading, check out memoirs by David Archuleta (“Chords of Strength”), Melinda Doolittle (“Beyond Me”), Taylor Hicks (“Heart Full of Soul”), Clay Aiken (“Learning to Sing”) and Fantasia (“Life Is Not a Fairy Tale”).

That reminds me….  Hollywood week started last night on Idol.  Nothing came close to this stellar performance by David in 2008, imho, but it was still good to watch Idol.  I’m an Idol junkie.  Great memories of David’s memorable Hollywood Week performance, and David’s Heaven has only got better and better.

Ending with Heaven in Manila.  Hey eOneMusic ~ you got yourself one heck of a talent on your hands now.  And all of us go along with that.  Its a package deal 🙂

Have a great Thursday everyone!

    Hey all. 🙂
    Haven’t had a chance to catch up on yesterday’s thread but I’m here reporting to vote. Just saw it’s down to 46%. Are people still voting? I said I will help and I will if people are still voting….?
    I found if I listen to interviews and talks and things while voting, it’s not so bad.

    Oh and Pastel….love that black and white smiley pic of David. Thanks again for a lovely new post to keep us up to date and spazzing together. 🙂

    See ya’ll on the other side….. lol
    (is that the other side of voting or the other side of sanity? haha, just jokes, please don’t take it personally anyone, just ya know…power voting makes me feel a little loopy. lol)

  11. Anita says:

    Good Morning everyone! Thanks Pastel for today’s post. That new picture of David is wonderful! I’m loving it!! Matt Clayton does it again!!!

  12. pocoelsy says:

    Hello there all

    Pastel, lovely post and pics, thank you for your hard work 🙂

    Kimk, Folks on FB can be pretty weird haha some the post every move they make ..we know what time they wake up, go to rest room and why !! oh my family will go on vacation 3 weeks..not surprise if their house was broken ito haha interesting. Oh I saw on twitter you suggested we change our password, so I did thank you , those bad DMs are flying around eh !!!

    Shanny, Hi you’re feeling better :D, about the vote I think today there’re more peeps help vote actually 😀 but it can’t compare when one side is 5-7 peeps and your opponent’s like 20+ well at least we dont quit, just want to finish what we’ve started i don’t see any reason why we should stop 🙂 (only 5 more days left anyway!!) so if we lose we can still hold our head up high hehe just my own opinion (and if I say it right !!) dunno if there’s still be PV or not, it’ll be great if we have if not do it anytime you like, every vote count 🙂

    Off I go!! to Poll Daddy, love to see you all there hehe, have a nice day/ night 😀

  13. kimk says:

    pocoelsy been getting a ton of crazy dms. changed my password!
    yikes seems too invasive for me.. like to be mysterious!!

  14. cq#DA3014 says:

    Thank you Pastel for the fabuloso Thursday post.

  15. roseinmaryland #DA2014 says:

    Awesome post FOD. I was so thinking of David last night while watching Hollywood Week on Idol. It’s a sheme we didn’t get to hear him sing Crazy. But all is good, Heaven and Crazy are two of my favorites from Season 7, OK, I will admit it, I love all the performances David did for season 7. Especially Shop Around, that was killer. Take care and have a great Thursday. Have to get back to work.

    I am a Raven’s fan, and if anyone got to see the turn out for their return home Tuesday, it was amazing, 200,000 people showed up for their return including most of my family. I couldn’t go because of work, but it just showed the love we have for those guys like we show the love we have for David. Being a dedicated Fan is powerful and misunderstood alot of the time. We get it, and hope alot more will get it as far as David is concerned. Stepping off my soap box, have a great day. Love you guys.

  16. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello kimk, Shanny, Anita, pocoelsy and cq!


  17. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Hi back at ya VaBeach.
    Poco, yep, it’s good to see that number jumping faster tonight. 🙂

  18. kimk says:

    The Grammys look great this year.. great performers and JT!!
    will be looking for Kari in the audience!!!

  19. ksf says:

    Good morning! Wonderful new post. Thanks! 🙂

    I watched some AI last night. There is lots of talent but so far I don’t see anyone I’m crazy about. We’ll see as it continues. One thing I won’t do is compare anyone to D. It’s just unfair since each person is talented in their own right, which I know that David himself appreciates. I can’t wait to see who the standouts are!

  20. kmb says:

    Late last night a couple people posted about Les Mis and David understanding Fantine. I think I can explain that. What David watched was the 10th Anniversary concert, not the actual stage production. This means that he didn’t actually “see” any of Fantine’s misery. I Dreamed a Dream was just Fantine singing on stage, and then during Lovely Ladies, subtitles described what Fantine did (selling her hair, becoming a prostitute). So, it wouldn’t have been scary for David since it’s just the songs anyway. No 6-year-old would be allowed to watch the Les Mis film, (at least I hope not), which fully showcases Fantine’s unfortunate situation.

  21. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, everyone!!! Awesome post, Pastel!!!
    OMJ….love the YT promo pic by eOneMusic!….looks like a MC pic…..bet each song has a separate pic….those mystery pics will soon be unraveled!….Gaaah! So excited!
    So much BUZZ going on about DRA and this new album….can’t believe it!
    eOne Canada wants to “INVADE”???? I’m loving the sound of that! 😀

  22. ksf says:

    kmb – thanks for the explanation. I’ve never seen Les Mis so I’ll have to check it out, especially with all the attention the movie has gotten lately.

    Charlotte – thanks for posting Chapter 3 of Love Is A Song yesterday. I haven’t gotten the chance to read the first two chapters yet but I’m looking forward to it. 🙂

  23. sarahhazel says:

    CYCLE ENDS 2/8/13 AT NOON!

  24. kimk says:

    ✨l a u r e n✨ ‏@harryigiveup
    so I’m pretty sure I just heard Don’t Run Away by David Archuleta for like 3 second on the Today Show holla

    huh???? 😯

  25. kimk says:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    Thanks to @jackryan4DA and everyone voting for @DavidArchie I love what you wrote on why this … http://m.tmi.me/JpyJB

    lol.. she is torn between the two hotties!

    can you vote for two at the same time?

  26. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    David music on the today show? Wowza, that would be completely cool if they can do it a few more times.
    Kim, it’s funny cos it’s almost like we have a friend at the grammy’s. I was just thinking…can we ask her to send out a ‘Hey archies!’ on twitter while she’s there. Just like a person would ask their sister or best friend to do. lol But I guess she’s got to be all cool and professional for JT’s sake. 😉

  27. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–Today Show???….OMJ….hope it’s true!

  28. OoO says:

    Hi poco and LindaCA are u guys there voting and Hi to everybody here to. I was saying the other day that we should try to go to bed tonight with 985,000 votes and let the fans on the other side of the world to take over because the past 2 days they pumped in more than 10,000 a day. We should all gathering around by 9 PM US Est and vp (VOTING PARTY) up until it strikes number 1 mil votes.

  29. Grannycrush says:

    They didn’t have group week on Idol during season 7, did they? If so, I have no memory of it. It looks really tough with few song choices and there always seems to be someone who is not respected in the group. Love it when the person who was not treated well gets through and the bully doesn’t.

  30. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Well I’m off to bed peeps. Hopefully come chat more tomorrow. Take care. ((hugs)) all round. :0)

  31. kimk says:

    Shanny she might respond.. will be looking for her in the audience but bet anything she will be back stage.
    dang does that make me jealous!!!

    there are so many great performers for The Grammys!!
    hottie heaven and good music all rolled up into one!!!
    now all that is needed one day is for David to be there too!!

    David Archuleta de retour avec “Don’t Run Away”, premier extrait de son nouvel album http://charts.tw/84185 #DavidArchuleta


    OOH LA LA!!

  33. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Today is my baby girl Alyssa’s 17th birthday. Sigh, all my kids are growing up. And yes, she is a David fan (take her to all the concerts, some of you might have met her) and she has David posters all over her wall AND she loves the new single, and she is excited for the new CD.

  34. Janel aka Nellie says:

    A little @DavidArchie surprise I did for my daughter Alyssa 4 years ago on her 13th birthday http://twitpic.com/c1mzfk

  35. OoO says:

    With this song Don’t Run Away David can change Evil women into a Little Red Riding Hood :S

  36. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–Happy Birthday to Alyssa! Time flies!

  37. sarahhazel says:

    OoO–LOL…what about evil men? 😉

  38. ray says:


  39. sarahhazel says:

    ray–I second that!

  40. Goodd Morning everyone. Hope your having a great day so far.
    OoO….. i have been voting on poll. I work today so i will vote on cell from work.
    We will be PV for the last time on the 11th & 12th. Same times 11amest/7pmest.
    We can do some PV anytime from now on.
    We are not winning but we can up the #s.
    I have to leave now, See you all tonight.
    PASTEL… thanks for a great post.

  41. sarahhazel says:

    Wow, BUZZ in France….very cool. 🙂

  42. OoO says:

    ha ha sarahhazel maybe some OF THEM.;s

  43. sarahhazel says:

    Don’t know if it’s my computer….but EL is so excruciatingly slowwwwwww……

  44. Grannycrush says:

    Sarahhazel I had to quit for awhile as Internet Explores kept quiting on me. I also have trouble when it is so slow that I am obviously going too fast and it messes the thing up. This certainly has not been the easiest poll on which to vote.

  45. Grannycrush says:

    Be great if I could actually type…”explorer” Proofreading before hitting post might be a good plan, too.

  46. sarahhazel says:

    Grannycrush–maybe it will get faster a little later….think I’ll wait a bit.

  47. Candy says:

    I feel bad fans think or feel I’m anti-voting. Thats far from the truth. If anything I have offered my support over and over again. And lets face it…offering the NA dvd as an “incentive” was genius!! Fans have been clamoring for a copy since the show ended over a year ago. The fact JR is offering the only known copy in existence (other than the one kari/david have) as an incentive to vote is one of the most creative ideas that have come our way as fans. So vote your fingers off fans…I’ll be cheering you on while lost in a soundcloud of wonderful music!

  48. Patty-Ann says:

    oh man, Candy! who thinks that?
    oh well still voting. his face alone is incentive 🙂
    Would love a copy of NA DVD and/or AI Season 7 but I chose to go along with voting directly on the poll. oh well. my choice.
    Think whoever wants to vote, should vote. No good guy/bad guy thing for me.
    Love the BUZZ David is getting. Love the new single, Don’t Run Away. Can’t wait for the album!

  49. kimk says:

    Candy yikes hope that will not be the only copy!! hope whoever gets it makes copies for us all!! lol I’ll pay!!!
    as for support.. you are the bomb when it comes to being a great fan! this voting thing is too crazy for me so just going with the fun part of David stuff!!
    lol but I usually do that anyway.
    way I see it all fans are great no matter what they do or not do or say for that matter.
    maybe not like me but who cares they like David they have to be on the right track.

  50. Candy says:

    Ha, kimk thats exactly what Im hoping too. Whoever gets the dvd will share the fan love!! Off to the food store before the blizzard hits tmw. BBL

  51. kimk says:

    Candy yikes I saw could be 2 feet of snow hope not by you!
    ha bet you get to the store shelves will be kind of empty.
    been thru blizzards in Jersey. panic! mayhem!

  52. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, I am sending a card to David, found it at American Greetings.com. Here’s what it says, “Somewhere deep within you is a song that plays softly, always… A song only you can hear if you’re very quiet, and very still… A song of life, and dreams, and wisdom… A call to adventure on a path that’s uniquely yours. Take time to listen to the song of your soul and see where it leads you… Isn’t that just perfect for David? I was so happy to find it! I hope he likes it! Just had to tell you guys and hear what you think. Talk to you later 🙂

  53. kimk says:

    Running on The Today Show today!! 🙂

    carspn ‏@carspn
    Heard David singing running on a Today show segment this am @DavidArchie miss his voice!!!

    Pastel ‏@pastelpastel
    Thanks so much to @carspn for the heads up! @DavidArchie snippet of Running on Today show: http://youtu.be/_WH2fWTQSso <– @DapoTorimiro

  54. Philly Fan says:

    If anyone has a Ytube account which unfortunately I do not could someone post on the “Crush” video that David has a new album coming out in March. I go there everyday and the comments are most always current and fans and non fans alway say that they keep coming back to that song since it came out because they love it and love his voice. Many of the comments also state that they don’t know “What happened to him”. There are also a lot of commenters that are just listening to that song for the first time. It could be a way of informing non fans who just discovered David. Just trying to find other ways to promote him. Also, if we could get the view count really high for DRA on ytube that may also help. JMHO

  55. kimk says:

    Eric Alper ‏@ThatEricAlper
    @amandajane_24 @Twugalicious David Archuleta’s album is newly recorded material and previously unreleased U.S. tracks.

  56. sarahhazel says:

    Lucy–very nice card!….need to send one too….haha!

    kimk–so it’s Running….not DRA….LOL…..but that’s cool!

  57. Philly Fan says:

    Always loved the song “Running” was my favorite on the album. I think it would have made great radio play. JMHO.

  58. kimk says:

    newly recorded tracks???!!!!


  59. sarahhazel says:

    EL poll still very slow….maybe because it’s overloaded with too many votes already……what if it crashed & we have to start all over again?….LOL……
    I say, count me OUT if that happens…..no more marathon polls for me after this! 😆

  60. sarahhazel says:

    Wonder what “newly recorded” means……done just before he left???

  61. kimk says:

    sarahhazel maybe from before, during and after the last tour? he knew he was going away.

  62. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–oh, yeah…the “foundation” thing he was talking about…..must be it.

    American Idol 12 – Hollywood Week, Part 1 – Live Blog and Recap – 2/6/2013 http://www.rickey.org/american-idol-12-hollywood-week-part-1-live-blog-and-recap-262013/ … DAvid Archuleta mention!

  64. kimk says:

    sarahhazel probs. probs label talk too. ha always keeping us one + step ahead!

  65. kmb says:

    ksf – You totally should do that! The songs are beautiful and they really stick in your head. I warn you, however, that if you watch the actual movie, bring tissues, because you will need them. I was fine when I was just listening to the songs, but watching everything happen on screen, I was bawling. The movie is so good though, sad but still uplifting to me.

  66. VaBeachArchie says:

    Checking in before heading out to work!

    kimk….READY TO SEE A TRACKLIST TOO! Can’t wait!

    Lucy…GREAT card! Sent by postcard last week!

    sarahhazel….Will be on the late night voting patrol! The MILLION is right around the corner….WE CAN DO IT!

    Candy and all the Archies up North…thinking about you guys and hoping it will not be too bad! Will keep my fingers crossed! Stay safe!

    Off to work! ENJOY your David time…know I always do! 🙂

  67. DA says:


  68. Sarahhazel, home for lunch….I vote in Entertainmentlifestyle poll.
    I just down sized it like JR said and it works fast & perfect.
    I have to switch sometimes to polldaddy, so it won’t kick me off. It only kicks you off if you vote to many too fast. Then i go back and forth. It helps.

  69. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–downsized it too….a lil bit better but still kinda slow….esp. when showing the result.

  70. sarahhazel says:

    @snowangelzz ‏@snowangelzz

    @DavidArchie It’s called DA14 🙂 RT ‏@CBCNews Jet-sized asteroid to pass between Earth and satellites http://bit.ly/UGfI48
    They called it DA14????…..Maybe it’s a sign of a BIG comeback for David….LOL

  71. Sarahhazel, i just came from voting, it;s working ok for me. But Polldaddy is a little slow for me.
    Anyway, i will keep voting from work. Its very slow today, so i have a lot of time to vote.

  72. kimk says:

    lol #DA14!!!!!

    let’s hope that big potato is as friendly as the lil spud!!

  73. sarahhazel says:

    Maybe an Archie named that asteroid. 😉

  74. ray says:

    ok guys pat youselves on the back ,cuz we are diehard fans of ONE SMART COOKIE,more to come

  75. Anita says:

    EEEEEEEK!!!! David’s song Running was on the Today Show! That song actually took some time to grow on me. I like it more and more with each listen. I hope he will sing this song in concert more often when he gets back. Many thanks to the Today Show for playing a snippet of David’s song. Now that’s awesome promo!!!

  76. sarahhazel says:

    ray–yes, he is!….looking forward to more bigger and better things for and from Archuman! 😀

  77. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Going to do two videos today because both are just partial little snippets of him singing.

    RT @lizmag3_DA2014: @FODFansofDavid This was JUST uploaded to the DavidArchuletaVevo YT account! – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zslT6Nr_ec&feature=youtube_gdata_player … <–tx LISA!!!

  81. Janel aka Nellie says:

    The second is a funny moment of him singing My Girl (and Crazy) for girls who were interviewing him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HQNIlMkr-A

  82. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–love that place….been there a few times when I lived in CA….so many yummy
    stuff…& the line of patrons is really long everyday.

  83. nora says:

    just watched David on UT AOL music sessions on Vevo singing YOU CAN, I really love this song, he is just sitting on a stool and singing, do I really miss him, who can just sit and sing like David?

  84. sarahhazel says:

    Wow, wonder why YC was uploaded to Vevo….and almost 5 years after?
    He’s so cute back them…..facial features have changed quite a bit ever since…..for the better, of course….& keeps getting better….. 🙂

  85. nora says:

    sarahhazel just watched it saw the announcement on twitter so checked it out, guess you beat me to it, I guess great minds think a like.

  86. sarahhazel says:

    nora–haha….you mean great Archuminds… 😀

  87. kimk says:

    Mike Danger ‏@MikeDanger989
    Just sitting fireside with a glass of cabernet and my David Archuletta CD playing quietly in the background, you guys.

  88. kimk says:

    you guys think You Can will be on the CD too?

  89. sarahhazel says:

    Another fanguy!….hmmm, David music + cabernet sounds good to me…..makes me wanna have one right now. 😉

  90. nora says:

    kimk seems funny that it would just be put out on Vevo now There must be a reason maybe this is the old that Kari mentioned as part of the CD Your guess is as good as mine.

  91. nora says:

    sarahhazel I think after being a fan of Davids we all tend to think some what a like, we must be able to read each others mind, because we get David where a lot of people don’t.

  92. kimk says:

    nora good guess.. the something old.

  93. sarahhazel says:


  94. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–why would they put YC in the new CD?

  95. nora says:

    we all seem to be getting good at trying to figure out why things are done when they are done. Keeps us all guessing and keeping things interesting, I guess it is possible about YC.

  96. kimk says:

    OMG this YOU CAN AOL Session version IS OUTSTANDING!!
    hope it is on the CD!!

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

    Hello Everyone!

    I just watched that You Can video, LOVE it, love the song & his performance, the great moving eyebrows at the end 😀 But it was on his first cd, I would like something that hasnt been on a cd yet on the new one. Maybe a couple of the songs released in Asia will be on it. I remember David saying they had to decide which songs would go on Begin, so maybe the new cd will include a cover(something old or something borrowed), dont know. Cant Wait to find out 😀

  98. sarahhazel says:

    I’m excited and a little intrigued by all this promo…..they must be really planning some kind of Archu-INVASION…..haha….

  99. pocoelsy says:

    GRRRR. !!! I can’t watch “You Can” it’s not available here !!!

  100. nora says:

    sarahhazel-maybe there is a theme to the new CD and YC fits into it, maybe he did another take on it to make it more 2013, just guessing, maybe it means nothing, but we are always trying to find a reason for strange things that happen out of the blue. Myybe there is nothing to it, but it is fun, trying to make something out of it.

  101. kimk says:


    I really like that!!
    not to mention the Biebs released an acoustic cd
    and well
    beats him hands down!!

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

    kimk, I havent listened to You Can in awhile, until this video today, wasnt it an acoustic sound, better run to my Itunes & see 😀 The Beav, acoustic, with autotune, that must’ve been something 🙄 Sorry to any of his fans, but he doesnt impress me. David, he’s IMPRESSIVE 😀

  103. pocoelsy says:

    sarahhazel ” Archu-INVASION” Love the sound of it, it’s sound so HOT smackxyyy lol

    Hi there! I’m up and voting..

    Candy and everyone up north, hope you all safe and keep warm, Candy don’t feel bad you are a great fan, we have our choice to support him whichever way we’re comfortable with <3 we all want the best for him that's all it matters.

    Do I miss a lot on that "You Can" vid? 🙁

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

    kimk, I just meant You Can was always performed Acoustically, always spectacular 😀

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

    I WOULDNT MIND IF ‘LET ME GO’ WAS ON THIS CD THOUGH & He would have to, er, ummm, want to perform it during the first concert he comes back 😀 Listening to it right now, what a GREAT vocal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  106. Grannycrush says:

    I was in the other room a week or so ago and heard this singing on my TV. Whoever was singing had that bleating sound(like a lamb makes) consistency to his voice. I went in to see who it was…It was Justin Bieber. It was not horrible, but his voice is not as good as most of the boys in our high school choir. We have 3 high school in our district and they all do musicals every year. They manage to come up with lead boy singers who have far superior voices to Bieber. Of course, they don’t have his swagger as they haven’t gone to a swagger coach. lol

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

    Everybody go to their Itunes & listen to Let Me Go again, volume up & let your feet do their stuff, let yourself go, dance up a storm or dance in your chair, GOSH I’m into that song alot lately 😀

  108. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–they show some portions of that YC AOL session here….where he’s seated on a chair…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pngnSkuDtsM
    ……sorry you’re unable to watch the Vevo one over there…….it’s like the Vevo ALTNOY, we can’t watch it here….which is weird.

  109. sarahhazel says:

    kimk @7:31–that “melt-you-like-ice-then-die” look……he should do more of that when he comes back!

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

    Then there’s ‘Falling” Still has that place in my heart that’s all its own. Incredible.

    Hello Grannycrush! Some people have a natural swagger that comes from their heart & soul 😀 like someone we all know 😀

  111. kmb says:

    Gosh, I haven’t listened to You Can in a very long time! I doubt it has anything to do with NMHF. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! The way he hits those high notes on “just pretend” is…GAH!!! I’m speechless! The debut album always gets lost in the shuffle for me, until something like this pops up and I am reminded just how wonderful it is. It’s hard to believe David was only 17 when he recorded it.

  112. Just got home from work, …Everytime i leave some new Buzz comes out. Exciting. I love it.
    Went straight to voting, no one there but me. But will go back in a few.
    Haven’t seen vids yet. Going there now.

  113. pocoelsy says:

    Beth “Let Me Go” is my fav too it’s as good as Zero Gravity !!

    Kimk, Ok Kim!!! what are you trying to do to us with that slow mo D. 😀 I can’t concentrate on the poll ya know !! I want to insert an emoticon with tongue hanging out but dunno how lol

    Michelle P‏@LPandArchie

    “@ArchuletaCrazy: HAPPY SEXUAL DAVID DAY EVERYONE veiny neck hamamahamanahamanahamana pic.twitter.com/5x8zc2qM” ROFL XD woo!

  114. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–EL got even slower for me. 🙁

  115. sarahhazel says:

  116. OoO says:

    Good morning and number 1 mil votes is coming up soon .

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

    pocoelsy 😀

  118. sarahhazel says:

    Less than 12,000 votes to reach 1 mil on EL, 5 days to go…..it is definitely possible!

  119. kimk says:

    lol the young fans sure are frisky!!

  120. kimk says:

    pocoelsy lol you’re asking US what Sexual David Day is!? ha and
    do we want to know?
    saw the young ones having a grand ole time last night with that.
    think they are missing him bad!!

  121. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey fod friends. 🙂
    Lucy…i think that card is a terrible, terrible choice and you definitely should not send it. And um….could you please send me the link of where you found it….? Thanks.

    Lol…..Lucy…I am Jealous! I wanna be the one to send the most awesomest card ever! It’s perfect, great find, bet he’ll love it. 🙂

  122. Shanny in Australia says:

    You Can was my very first favourite song of Davids. I can’t watch that vevo vid, it’s blocked here in Australia. Which increases the weirdness of it all. What is happening in the vid?

  123. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ha Poco, thought you’d have the same probs with vevo. 🙁

  124. pocoelsy says:

    Sarahhazel, thank you for the link …aww so young then he’s the best live singer!!! pitch perfect and never sing a song the same way everytime, you can tell…I think may be David’s not capable of Lip sync lol…you can’t watch ALNOY !!! in fact we could wacth it ..like a year ago I think …weird is right

    OoO, Sarah Yes it’ comming 🙂 1 million !!

    Kimk AHHH the young ones !!! whatever that means in that tweet, lol !!! peeps are missing David , it’s all good 😀 urrr and the not so young ones are equally miss him too hehe

    Grannycrush, haha bleating sound like a lamb makes , your description lol not that I wanna make fun of him, my hat off to him and his swag, swagger is more important in this business nowadays !!

  125. Shanny in Australia says:

    So the vevo vid is an AOL session and part of that AOL session is on youtube? Is that right?

    Hmmm…independent label…if all these little things are their doing…I’m excited to see what they might pull off when David is home.

  126. Sarahhazel sorry hit wrong button.
    So glad to see young girl fans getting GIDDY!!!!!!
    Does anyone have the link to DON’T LET GO!!!!
    There is a new Missionary next door and OMJ!!! He reminds me so much DAVID.
    He’s about Davids hight, built, latino, some haircut. I saw him and couldn’t help but say HI!!!! How are you !!!. Very nice boy. Pretended he was David LOL.
    Couldn’t stop starring at him.

  127. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh yay, I was worried you guys might hit one million votes while I was sleeping. I wanna be there when it happens. 🙂

  128. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol Linda! Oh my goodness, it’s going to be hard seeing him all the time. Make you miss our guy all the more.

  129. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh yeah I forgot to say, so David likes bakery food….i wonder what he goes for there? Sticky buns, cakes, slices, pies?

  130. pocoelsy says:

    Hey Linda, Shanny

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHMMuB2hp90 here’s don’t let go he was on fiyahh here !! sexy is understatement lol

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

    Linda, there are a ton of you tube vids of Dont Let Go. You didnt mean Let Me Go, by chance, did you?

  132. pocoelsy says:

    Linda, Please contain yourself 😀 lol

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

    Shanny, I think he likes all of it, the man LOVES food 😀

  134. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

  136. pocoelsy says:

    The reload on poll Daddy is slow today!!, kitchen is calling me, will be back in a bit 🙂

  137. Pocoelsy. thank you for youtube Link to LET ME GO!!!!!!

  138. Shanny in Australia says:

    Philly Fan, I just went to leave a comment on the Crush video about the new upcoming album. You are right, there are a lot of new comments on there from non diehard fans who seem to like him. It’s those casual fans we want to draw in.
    I didn’t leave a comment because Heidijoy has already done it, so I just voted her up. If others can vote her comment up too that would be great as it would put the info at the top of the comments. 🙂

  139. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- 😆 Oh my. Stalking David lookalike missionaries. 😆 BBl

  140. pocoelsy says:

    Forgot to say !! the reload is slow but the number’s moving up nicely 😀 more peeps vote today I think <3

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

    Linda, no problem, glad you saw pocoelsy’s link to it.

    See ya later pocoelsy!

  142. Shanny in Australia says:

    Well I’ve got some stuff i’ve got to get done, then I’ll come back and hit the vote.

  143. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bethy, so now we know….pad thai, mangoes, chips and medium salsa and bakery food. Oh and lettuce perhaps? lol

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

    Shanny, lol, dont forget Turkey Hoagies at Subway, eat fresh 😀

  145. ksf says:

    Wow! Love Nick Boddington on AI. Great talent!

  146. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh hey, I forgot to say…it’s mine and hubby’s wedding anniversary next week and I was looking at restaurant menus online and I came across…..Halo halo! Think I will go to that restaurant sometime and try it out while reminiscing about Nandito Ako. 🙂

  147. nora says:

    shanny how do you vote her comment up?

  148. Shanny in Australia says:

    Turkey hoagies? Oh I must have missed that one or totally forgotten. And doesn’t he like cheesecake from some special store?

  149. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nora, well there used to be little thumbs up and thumbs down pictures next to each comment and you would hit the thumbs up. But in the last few days, it seems to have changed to a bar graph icon on my computer. So I hit that. I think a couple of people have to vote on it before it shows people have voted for it.

    Are you all seeing the little bar graph icon on youtube now too?

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

    Shanny, Richard is the one who loves cheesecake 😀

  151. Philly Fan says:

    Shanny @8:30pm! Thank you! I thought it might help with promo on the new album.

  152. SGJ!!!! Yes he looks like i imagine David looks like.
    He’s a cutie too. He’s new in this section, so maybe someday i will get to meet him.
    Some of the Mish are very quit, he seems to be very friendly, he waited till i got out of my car to say Hello. They were just leaving.
    Back to voting.

  153. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bethy, I just recall some fans going to some cheesecake shop or something when he did that one off concert in Idaho and sung Be Still My Soul. There was some kind of coincidence…if I remember rightly, the fans were going there because they knew david liked the cheesecake or something and when they got there they found out that he had been in there just the day before. I’m very sketchy on the details. Maybe someone can confirm or deny…?

    Philly Fan – yes, I think it was a great idea you had! 🙂 Something easy we can do to help. Thanks for the heads up.

    BBL peeps.

  154. sarahhazel says:

    Less than 9,000 votes till 1 million on EL…..I’m confident we’ll reach that mark (& more) overnight. 🙂

  155. Canadianarchie says:

    @kariontour: I voted @DavidArchie and JT as the most anticipated album of 2013 I’m looking forward to! http://t.co/1arqLnBt
    You can vote more than once! We need to VOTE here! Keep his name out there in America too!

  156. ksf says:

    kmb – I’m looking forward to seeing it. I’ll be sure to have my hanky handy! 🙂

  157. sarahhazel says:

    I meant *less than 10,000 votes*….LOL…..

  158. sarahhazel says:

    Off to Musiqtone now for 400….this ends tomorrow at noon ET!

  159. Grannycrush says:

    CanadianArchie I can’t seem to vote more than once on that most anticipated album poll. It tells me my vote has already been counted.

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

    Grannycrush, same with me, I tried, didnt work.

  161. Philly Fan says:

    Can only vote once on the Ryan Poll. Don’t know if clearing cookies will enable multiple voting.

  162. nora says:

    shanny-I tried to vote on her comment, but can’t because I don’t have any of the accounts to sign into that they require. Really would be good if others do, there are a lot of new comments.

  163. cq#DA2014 says:

    One more thing to add to a fan bucket list: A Grammy for Amazing David, maybe 2014-2015…ok I might as well go big…LOTS OF GRAMMYS, lol.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    cq 😀 G’night

  165. cq#DA2014 says:

    Good night Beth! love the happy face!

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

  167. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

  170. kimk says:

    oh and Britney Spears is #2?!

  171. Getting closer to 1 MIL. Go Archies!!!

  172. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hey guys! Home from work and READY TO VOTE for that MILLION! 🙂

  173. kimk says:

    a mousketeer no less!!


    ha this is what happens when you kiss a girl and leave them flat!

  174. Anita says:

    I could have sworn I’ve seen that You Can AOL video before. Hmmm….I guess not. It’s certainly one of my very favorites from David’s debut album. This AOL one is beautiful, but I think my fav performance of this from David was a concert of his somewhere in Michigan if I remember right. It was chill inducing, and I couldn’t stop listening to it!

  175. Va Beach!!!! Hi! Just came up for air. Just 8,000 more for 1 mil.

  176. Kimk!!! Love the PIC of David kissing Mini Mouse. WHAT A LUCKY GAL!!!!!

  177. By the way. Ryans poll won’t let me vote again either.

  178. Anita says:

    I just put in a vote for David on Ryan’s site! I was trying to find where Ryan mentioned about David’s new album, but the only thing there is his awesome Rainbow video. Was just just a tweet from Ryan?

  179. kimk says:

    kim ‏@kimak
    #9!! @DavidArchie’s Rainbow MV MYX! http://myxph.com/default.aspx

  180. kimk says:

    Linda no kidding… ha girls should know what to dress up as when going to a Halloween party where he’ll be!

  181. Miss Vicki says:

    Just love listening to David sing Heaven….that Hollywood week performance was unforgettable…….What is this about Don’t Run Away being played on The Today show…..that would be FLIPPEN FANTASTIC……eOneMusic has one heck of a recording artist on their hands….They better prepare for it well….Miss Vicki

  182. OoO says:

    What is wrong why we can’t bring David music to #1 on top 10 anymore??????????Why we don’t love him anymore cryiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnngggggggg. btv

  183. Miss Vicki says:

    Can’t believe David Cook is at that top of Ryan Seacrest’s list…. And am I missing something….Is Adele even on that list……Adele and David should vie for top two on the Ryan Seacrest poll for best new music in 2013……Notice Lady Gaga and Miley are way, way down on the list…..Miss Vicki

  184. kimk says:

    with David gone some fans are not that engaged
    both young and older ones
    bet anything when he comes back things will go gangbusters!

  185. Candy…. Your right!!…Your right! We need to bring Davids Rainbow, back up on MYX.

    Vote for David on WHOSE ALBUM ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR IN 2013????

    I know that we have so much excitement with Davids New Album.
    But we need to try to keep Davids name on top of the polls
    to keep promoting Davids name. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

  186. nora says:

    miss Vicki-it was David’s song Running not Don’t Run Away.

  187. Anita says:

    kimk-I have faith things will go so well for David when he gets back! I sure hope so! He’ll make a brand new start of it! Well, actually he’s doing that right now with the release of a new single to radio and a brand new album. Didn’t we say that David should have new songs released to the radio airwaves while he away?! He’s doing just that!!! David never ceases to amaze me!

  188. OoO says:

    6000k away ha ha and my rt arm is so sore right now see what David made us do. Gathering around people because we are going to see that number 1 mil vote striking in front of your eyes. Go Linda and everyone else where is poco r u voting.

  189. VaBeachArchie says:

    Heading to dreamland….Nana patrol at 6! SWEET DREAMS guys! 🙂

  190. pocoelsy says:

    OoO, Hey I’m here, vote awayyyy, yay this is exciting 🙂

  191. OoO!!! I’m there!!! Have to stay awake when we hit the 1 MLI>

  192. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    OoO I’m here. My arm is sore. @ minute rest. Back to voting.

  193. pocoelsy says:

    OoO, LindaFromCali@2014, supergrandjudie#DA2014

    Dont give up cause you’re half Frenchhhh Bwahahah

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9alB1iWZPs , I’m listening to this while voting 😀

  194. cq#DA2014 says:

    OoO,It not that we diehard fans are excited about David’s album release because we are overjoyed, but without him here….some fans just aren’t active. Btw, I just hope that Cooks album is not coming out the same time as David’s. Did Cook sign with a label? I just hate that continued comparing.
    I did put my vote in and after all…look at the heavy hitters that are on the list with millions of fans, I guess it’s not important that a fan of a successful star gets into these polls. However, all the wonderful Archies that do vote are doing out of love for David.
    Keeping his name out in public eye is very important.

  195. Anita says:

    Goodnight Beth!! A goodnight to your feathered fellows as well, LOL!

  196. dft says:

    Hello everyone! Voting here along with you all! Let’s get that million!

  197. OoO says:

    ha ha this is fun did u ever ever think that we will be doing this at this age wow…btv

  198. Ali says:

    Cook’s album will not be coming out the same time as David’s. Cook doesn’t even have an album yet. He said in an interview last week that he HOPES to have an album out this year. I think he’s songwriting now and has been for several months. I’m not sure if he’ll be releasing independent or what — haven’t heard anything on that front.

    I think his fans are pretty anxious for new music as he’s only put out 2 albums in the 5 years since AI. That’s probably why they’re voting so hard on this poll.

  199. jhen says:

    Can’t wait for tracklist. I hope when David come back to the Philippines. He will be an endorser of Skin Expert by Bench. Since David is flawless and porcelain white, he is the right endorser for skincare.

  200. Jhen…. Sounds good to me. Davids skin is flawless. He would be great.

  201. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Resting. Seems the more we vote the more votes we lose and Lee gain. Hmmmm!! Hi DFT. How’s doing. See you at poll daddy. It’s midnight here already. Fraid I’m going to have to stop in a while. Meantime, I’m going back in.

  202. Lucy says:

    Hey Shanny, I’m not good a posting links but I found it at Americangreetings.com, under the printable cards. It was originally a birthday card but I changed it a bit. Your comment was cute 🙂

  203. SGJ!!! Thats because their afraid we might try to catch up to them.
    We can’t, but if we really had an all ARCHIE POWER VOTING we could give them a good scare!!! HA HA! If i miss you…Goodnight. Going back to VOTE!!!

  204. jackryan4da says:

    PATTY-ANN – the poll voting has its own set of of DAJIM and AIS7 DVD incentive. For every 25k increment after we hit 1 million, a DVD set is up for grabs and will be raffled off to those voting at Poll Daddy. (e.e if we hit, 1.1M, that means we have 4 sets of DVDs to raffle off . Which DVD – the 8-disc DAJIM 2012 or the AIS7 0 is u to the actual winner)

    Since we have no way of identifying who is voting but know how far we can go cos we can view the results instantaneously, we will use the honesty system.

    Just email me JR4DA2012@gmail.com if you want to be included in the raffle, and then we will hold a raffle after Feb 13.

    In this, it is based on the collective efforts of everyone.

    The twitter voting is a strategic component of the incentive system, cos it can blindside the competition cos unless they do a Search Timeline or have the list of those who are participating, it is hard to monitor. If we have the 25 people to work on their goal, it could be a way to bridge the gap.

    So individual and collective efforts are optimized. Every vote counts.

    Goodnight all. Have to get up early and go to the store tomorrow. There is supposed to be a blizzard here and snow about 10″ to 16″. The bad part is we may lose power, then can’t vote anywhere. I hope we reach a million tonight. Good luck!! See you tomorrow.

  206. dft says:

    SupergrandJudie, I am doing well, thanks! How are you doing? Stay safe! I think the opposition is voting harder because they are scared that we will catch up and take the lead. Have a great night and stay warm and safe.
    Back to vote.

  207. jackryan4da says:

    Anyone here watching AI? This is really like a sitcom. I crack up with Mariah’s facial expression!

  208. jackryan4da says:

    supergrandjudie – 10-16″ snow? yikes! Keep safe!

  209. OoO says:

    bet u $2 that we will hit 1 mil at 3 PM BKK time.

  210. Shanny in Australia #DA2012 says:

    Argh! I have to go out and I think we’re going to hit 1 million while I’m away. Can everyone just hold up voting for a couple of hours please?

    😆 😉

    Actually my daughters are taking an interest in the poll and have agreed to tag-team. They’re young, so we’ll see how long it lasts but I will be encouraging them. 😉

    Saying prayers for all of you expecting too much snow! Keep safe and warm!

    Lucy, I’ll go check it out. Thanks! 🙂

  211. JackRyan, i think the opponents think we may have some kind of strategy cooking.
    Thats why they are voting harder. Ha Ha, thats ok, Let them think that.i’m just happy to get David the 1 MIL.

    Now back to voting.

  212. Just 1,000 votes to go for 1 Mil!!!!!!!!!

    Jhen, As far as I’m concern David can be a Bench Model for every single product that they have !! I’m totally agree with the skin product…mann the guy doesn’t know the words pimple-zid-blackhead and look at his hair!!!..I believe it has life of it’s own !!!
    he’s perfect for chapstick too !! goshh someone stop meee haha this is what happen when you’re alone here…urrr by the way do Bench have “underware product” ?!!! just asking hehe !!
    OK can someone who’s really been upclose and personel with David, kindly explain to me in details (haha) how’s his complexion’s like, is it really looks flawless and glowy just like in the pictures ?

  228. jackryan4da says:

    POCO – yes. he looks UNREAL. As the DJs here described him — “…like he was drawn. You don’t get a face so perfect as that”


  229. pocoelsy says:

    jackryan4da OMJJ I haven’t, I’ll go search now that’s very interesting, how did you own it…did you wash it…do you also have the one on the beach the “sweat wiper” one haha you wicked 😀

    As David would sing ♫♪ I think am cra-zehhhhhh! ♮♬ while Rolling on the floor laughing at the same time …Kelikk

    OoO You’re welcome 🙂 I’m hook on her Channel too he’s sooo cute right 🙂 , I have to head out a while too pick up my girl from tuition class, soo see you later after dinner. 🙂

  230. Shanny in Australia says:

    Woot woot 1 million votes! Yehawww!
    Only thing is we missed witnessing the momentous occasion. Stinker. But good on ya Archies.
    My kids are all gathered around the computer now arguing over who’s turn it is to vote. lol Why didn’t I think of this earlier!?

  231. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco – rofl! Settle down girl, settle down. 😆 😉

  232. Shanny in Australia says:

    JackRyan – am I reading this right!?
    You. Have. In. Your. Possession. A Shirt. Worn. By David!?
    And not only that but you are ….Willing To Give It Away!?

    😯 😯 :shock;

    Sheesh, how the heck did you get that and how the heck can you bear to part with it!?

    You do know don’t you that one day David could be as big as Elvis and the shirt could be worth a mint!

  233. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD!


    pocoelsy…Agree! David could be the Bench Model for EVERY single product they have…..well except the undies! The skin and hair care products are a done deal as far as I an see….David’s FLAWLESS!

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

  234. kimk says:

    Good morning folks!!

    Christer Galang ‏@xter1018
    I was watching American Idol last night & i felt sad. Then naalala ko yung reason why i dont watch the show anymore.. I MISS @DavidArchie 😐

  235. kimk says:

    Elynna Rashid ‏@elynna_1702
    @DavidArchie Hi, David! I miss you so much. Can’t wait for No Matter How Far to reach our stores 🙂

  236. kimk says:


    Mira Savira DA ‏@miravira
    RT @DavidArchie: Here is one more of David playing the guitar on the set of Nandito Ako. (KS)

  237. Anita says:

    Good Morning everyone! To those in the east, be safe in the snowstorms!

  238. kimk says:

    they were playing Shop Around on the news today.. one of my favs of David!!
    miss him!!


  239. kimk says:

    Anita yikes they are predicting 2+ FEET of snow in some places!! that is crazy!!

  240. Patty-Ann says:

    Yeah! We reached a million. Guess I’m just confused. Wondering if the poll itself is actually counting the tweet votes too and when they’re adding those votes as counts.
    Well I’m still voting whenever I can. I’ve been voting since Day 1 so gotta finish it.
    Thanks for explaining JackRyan.

    Hope everyone stays safe in the storm!

  241. pocoelsy says:

    JackRyan, Thank you for the vid, they sum it up for me..”Drawn” wahh that’s the perfect description for David, they were startruck sooo bad haha can’t blame them, I don’t mind to be starstruck by him haha…

    Shanny, You can’t blame me for that haha

    Kim They play Shop Around on the news, that’s something !!! His team means business

  242. kimk says:

    Patty Ann hope YOU are safe in the storm!!

  243. kimk says:

    pocoelsy oh gosh wish it was his!! no the original.
    just reminded me of him.
    they did play his Running yesterday on a big morning news show!!! 🙂

  244. pocoelsy says:

    Kimk hehe we have to admit that half way through his Mission..we can find things that remind us of him so easily, I’m thankful for this new album and all the buzz otherwise 2013 ‘s going to be a long year 🙂

    Patty Ann, and everyone that hit by the snow storm, please keep safe and warm.

  245. pocoelsy says:

    Back to vote and spend some quality time with fam 🙂

  246. sarahhazel says:

    Good TGIF morning, folks!!! Woohoo for 1 million + (& counting) votes on EL!!!!


  247. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- yes, Bench have underwear products, but David can’t endorse it lol. Everyone would be drooling if he did endorse underwear lol. But he fit for skincare, perfume and clothing line.

  248. kimk says:

    lol if David EVER did an underwear shoot we’d be looking for the alien invasion from above cause we know that would not be him in that bod!!

  249. jhen says:

    Linda- David skin is perfect. Glowing.

  250. jhen says:

    Kimk- that underwear shoot could be next to impossible lol

  251. kimk says:

    pocoelsy ha baby I don’t think so!!


    couldn’t find David there but oh my they sure got some gorgeous and hunky swimwear or whatever that is!!

    he needs to do more Bench come 2014!!!

  252. kimk says:

    jhen even funny talking about it!!

  253. jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- David skin is porcelain white and glowing like a light, saw him several time upclose and personal. And his teeth is also perfect along with his contagious smile.

  254. jhen says:

    Kimk- he can only wear capri short like the one he near in beach scene in NA, but not underwear lol

  255. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone! Have a great day, will check in later 😀

    (what about the Guitar Hero Commercial :grin:)

  256. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco, lol…no definitely can’t blame you. It’s simply the Archuleta effect taking hold. I fully understand.

    I hope Bench get David on board again. He’s a natural.

    My kids have been voting all this time. I have a deal with one of my daughters – she votes 50 times then she plays one level of a computer game. Bribery is a mothers best friend. 😉

  257. kimk says:

    Beth oh lol yeah that!
    ha what did he say.. twas white shorts!! 😉


  258. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–you bribe your kids to vote??? 😯 now, that’s a first!…..bwahahahahaha!

  259. Shanny in Australia says:

    I wonder if he was less shy about shorts back in that day or if they had to twist his arm mighty hard?
    Does anyone know why he auditioned in San diego and not Utah? Did they not do auditions in Utah?

  260. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel – yeah although I think I just got bribed. I just made some mango sorbet for mine and hubby’s ‘Friday night treat’ and my daughter managed to wrangle some out of me on the premise that she’s been voting for me. Just when you think you’ve got the upper hand you discover you’re the one getting worked. lol

  261. sarahhazel says:

    He had a Twitter party about true love?….never seen that…..”TRUE LOVE FINDS YOU”

  262. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–kids are smarter than you think…..haha!

  263. ksf says:

    I don’t believe there were any auditions in Utah. The closest was San Diego.

    When is the *oting over?

  264. jhen says:

    Beth, kimk- he look good in white short, show more legs next time lol

  265. Shanny in Australia says:

    That is so cool reading through what people had to say about love and what david’s responses were. Him and his interest in philisophical things. That reminds me, I haven’t read Aleph yet. He recommended that book.
    I especially liked the one about how love is something that’s hard to describe but you can feel it. Reminded me of a few other things. Good food for thought. 🙂

  266. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–it’s OK, you can write “VOTING”, it’s not a bad word 😉 …..& the answer is: NEVER….cuz there’s always gonna be polls out there…..haha!

  267. sarahhazel says:

    Now….here’s a bad word here: S**N 😀

  268. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh ok, thanks Ksf. I had wondered that. I wonder why they never had any in Utah. Music and singing would be big there. Maybe they knew that and knew to stay away if they didn’t want to be inundated with auditoners. 😉

  269. jhen says:

    Shanny – I sure hope Bench could get him still, might be perfume endorsement. Wonder what kind of scent. Maybe cool, refreshing scent ?

  270. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – Yikes! That’s what I thought. 😯 Lol. Sorry but I must disagree. It is definitely a bad word to me. It’s pretty much the main topic of conversation around here nowadays. Oh well, the real voting happens when people actually buy the album. I’ll cast my vote then.

  271. kimk says:

    lol yeah the voting.. what did Kari say about getting a tracklist..

    in due time.

  272. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jhen, oh my goodness, can you imagine the comments that would fly if david endorsed some sort of mens fragrance! lol
    And all the sniffing that would go on at M&G’s….

  273. kimk says:

    ksf there you go.. Ihave been spazzing and posting stuff other then that. ha follow me. I’m trying to find good stuff.

  274. Shanny in Australia says:

    Confession: I used to hate it every year when American Idol would come on. The same time every night the conversation would change to people and things I knew nothing about. But I just learnt to wander off for a couple of hours and come back later. lol

  275. jhen says:

    Shanny- I like that sniffing him lol, never tried that before, next time lol

  276. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – ITA *oon is also on the naughty list as well.

    Shanny – yeah you may be right re: Utah auditions. Btw, also agree about the love twitter party. Very interesting convo. I wonder when D falls in love if he’ll tweet about it. He’ll most definitely keep the details of any relationship private, but will there be hints? Lol. I like hearing him talk about love. I wonder if he’ll be able to help himself. He may not be able to contain the excitement of true love. Lol! 🙂

  277. kimk says:

    folks used to say Idol tour days..
    he smelled like baby powder.
    think they hugged and sniffed.
    ha one lady kissed him lightly on the neck as I recall.
    or at least that is what they said.

    lol poor David.. so manhandled.

  278. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jhen – rofl! Just make sure you get someone to film it and then post it on youtube so we can all see david’s reaction to you smelling him. lol

    Ksf…well he is a private guy but he did drop that hint about going to a spanish speaking mission and he seems to like leaving us little bread crumb trails to spazz over, so who knows…maybe he would drop a few hints. One thing is for sure….he is incredibly honest and vulnerable in his song choices these days, so maybe that’s where we might get some clues?

  279. sarahhazel says:

    ksf–LOL…I think VOTING’s already been overshadowed by NMHF/DRA these days…..exciting stuff!!!…..and I’ve pre-ordered MNHF on Amazon a few minutes ago….Woot, woot, and woot!!!…..
    BTW, Are we gonna have a DOWNLOADING PARTY when DRA comes out on iTunes??? 😀

  280. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–kissed him on the neck????! OMJ….that must freaked the bejoshus out of him!!!

  281. jhen says:

    Kimk- that’s what David smell, powdery scent when I was beside him.

  282. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha! Someone kissed him on the neck? Classic.

  283. jhen says:

    Kimk- what? Kiss him on the neck, that could freaked him out lol

  284. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ha so much stuff has gone on.. bet he could write one way interesting book just on what the fans were up to.

  285. kimk says:

    sure it did.
    think upon reading the admission fans flipped out as well?
    long time ago so don’t remember it all just that folks were crazy for the Archuleta.
    or lol is that just crazy.

  286. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–“Me and My Fans” Part 1 😉

  287. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ever since reading those love tweets, i’ve got Love Don’t Hate stuck in my head. Was listening to it in the car earlier on.

  288. jhen says:

    Sarah- I guess David never been in love based on his answer about true love. Maybe he just experience Crush only.

  289. sarahhazel says:

    jhen–you’ll never know…..maybe it’s love unrequited….*sigh*

  290. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lol, Me and My Fans sure would make for some wonderfully entertaining reading. Would probably draw some attention in the media too.

  291. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–of course, it will….haha….cuz we are NOT ordinary kind of fans!

  292. VaBeachArchie says:

    Think we’ll ALWAYS have polls to vote on….always been that way! Some more INTENSE then others! I just like to WIN…a sports fanatic and competitor! GO ARCHIES!

    David and BENCH are PERFECT together! Would LOVE to see them team up again in 2014….with a FULL LINE of clothes, hair and skin care, fragrance and accessories (scarfs, watches and SUNGLASSES ) SPAZZ CITY!!!

  293. sarahhazel says:

    VaBch–that’s true….like it or not….VOTING/POLLS have been out there for the last (almost) 5 years since we became Archies…..& more to come…..Sorry, ksf! 😉

  294. Shanny in Australia says:

    I wonder if Jenette brome his heart? He did tweet ‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’ after their skiing holiday. And then they were never seen together again after that.
    Actually, when I think about it…i think they had some sort of relationship going on but he was probably holding back a bit and maybe it was stuck somewhere between friends and boyfriend/girlfriend…? Just think that tweet is the kind of thing a guy says when he’s being keeping a girl confused on where she stands maybe…?
    All speculation, all speculation….

  295. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–I love LDH…..thought it would be a single….a hit single…..but then, so many David songs should have been hits!

  296. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ugh…broke his heart…

  297. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–he tweeted that?….you have good memory….haha…..hey, we’ll probably never know…..but I like them together.

  298. Jhen says:

    shanny- how could Jennette broke his heart lol, David is a perfect boyfriend/ husband material.

  299. sarahhazel says:


  300. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel…i don’t know. Really, the only song which I feel confident about in terms of its likelihood to gain a wide following was Falling Stars.
