and at 9:36 EDT today we got a new quote:

I actually see these two quotes are, in a way, related.  A nice reflection from David ~ as we near his one year anniversary of service.  Nice of him to think to send us some inspiration today.  I’ll take it 🙂

* * * * *

Just Two Weeks (or less) Left!

No Matter How Far is almost here!  Two more weeks and we will have the lastest and greatest CD in our hot little hands or electronically on our hot little iTunes folders.

Either way works for me (until of course I get the physical CD in my hot little hands).




Some fans may get their NMHF CD’s early!  TOTALLY JELLUS!!!!

 * * * * *

Gifting program announced!

We now have a number of generous donors of CDs…so we are ready to announce the:

No Matter How Far Gifting Program

Until stock runs out, we are opening up requests for CDs from those who cannot get access to No Matter How Far since it is not distributed in your country AND/OR you are not able to receive it due to financial considerations.

Please send an email request for a single CD with the subject line

“No Matter How Far Request”

to  We need your FULL NAME and FULL MAILING ADDRESS in the email.

And we ask that you be patient as donors do not have CD’s yet, and some take longer to arrive than others.  We won’t be able to answer inquiries about when CDs are mailed out because that will be based upon donors, many of which will remain anonymous.

We would love to hear from all recipients by tweet or email when the CD arrives and know what you think of the CD!!!

Thank you again to all the generous donors!

You are beautiful, Como La Flor

Second last song to vote on for our virtual concert!  What an amazing surprise that David added the snippet of this song from his youth, based upon a fan request.  He went from being nervous, cautious and apologetic about this in San Antonio to more confident in SLC.  Watch the transformation.  But David’s nerves and desire to do the song justice is SOOOO ENDEARING!  And he hits it out of the park every time.  And the fans respond with honest praise.

If there was ever a reminder of how much we miss David in concert, this song is it.

Okay then, here we go!

1.  Submitted by DavidFTFOD, here is a great Como La Flor from San Antonio, the first time he sang it on his solo tour. Video by erikcray. “Wait, my mom is here. What should I sing, Mom?”

And here is a fun find:  Debbie posted her story in our comments that I re-printed below that SHE requested a song in Spanish and the Fan Concert Vid shows a glimpse her!  And her teddy bear!  TOO GOOD!

2.  Submitted by Shelley @Shell_eeeyyy. And she is the videographer! Always shy and a bit embarrassed to start, David laces right into that verse and chorus and the crowd goes wild! Amazing quality close up and sound! And the ending! Tooo much!

3. As sent in by Martha @mlpb3.  Video also by umechaz (Martha).  This is in Albuquerque and taken from the balcony.  Thanks to djhsail too for sending a similar one.  The audio here is great and the fans are LOUD!!!!!

4.  Another from Albuquerque.  This is from Martha’s daughter Emily and it was just discovered last night!  Great great close up and perfect audio; you can hear the fan reaction very well.  You can almost see David’s thought process as he sings here, cutting out the verse in favour of the chorus.  Thanks so much Martha for digging this up!

5. As sent in by Jana @Jana_OR_, Reno NV from Marissa R.  So much fun to see the power in the little snippet, he is in very strong voice here! “Here we go….”

6.  As submitted by Pattie @attwittsend. Pomona from Starrynites01.  Watch him point periodically with his left hand.  He’s just tickled and giddy when he finishes singing, but this performance makes me want much more!

7.  Another from Ponoma submitted by Joanie @suttygal. Video from hannicaid.  A slightly different vantage point, in sepia, and great audio. I like how David asks about Latino fans at the end and gets exactly the reaction he expected!

8.  Recommended by Jen @jenleighbarry. In SLC, from Almostround9.  Great lighting, audio and close ups.  David has polished this song now, no longer hesitant in delivery.  I love this snippet too because its longer!

Tomorrow:  A Thousand Miles

Debbie started it all

I was saying with Video No. 1, yesterday I asked you to submit fan stories, and here’s one from Debbie in comments.

I went to David’s San Antonio concert on 3-12-09 I had a blast. I live in Eagle Pass,TX a small town southwest of San Antonio. I went with my daughter and a friend to my first concert ever. We left my house at 8:00 a.m. so we could get a good spot in line. I was very excited, we waited 7 hours and it was worth the wait. David came out with a BIG smile on his face he was beautiful and the fans went wild. David sang and smiled and moved around on stage like always does.

But then came the best part I yelled at David “Estas bien chulo” which means you’re cute. A few moments later after he introduced the band I yelled “Sing in spanish”. He didn’t know what to do at first but he ended up singing a bit of “Como la Flor” and the fans went wild. This is the best part I was singing along to one of his songs and he noticed, he stopped and looked at me straight in the eyes as he continued singing.

That’s not all ~ during the intermission I threw a teddy bear onto the stage but he didn’t see it. He saw it on his way out after the last song and picked it up.

I had the most amazing time of my life, will never forget it!

SEEEEE???  Debbie was responsible for the Como La Flor addition to the setlist!!!  Thank you Debbie!

Since we are reliving all of David’s concerts I just posted my anniversary recap from March 12, 2009 – San Antonio on my blog.  I have a link there to my newly edited photos of the show. (Ed Note:  These pics are AMAZING!!!!).  Here is an excerpt:

The Scout Bar, where the concert was held, is a tiny (a heard it was the smallest venue on the tour), standing-room-only place and it was packed with crazy fans, anxious to sing along with David. One female fan standing close to the stage said, “Sing something in Spanish.” So after consulting Lupe, who had just joined him on the tour, a new beast was unleashed as David sang a snippet of “Como La Flor.” I don’t think he realized what was happening right then. I’m sure he wasn’t expecting the audience to sing along. It was an unforgettable moment for sure.

  1. Candy says:

    Food for Tuesday thought from David:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    A thought from David “The small and simple things now prepare us for the greater things ahead.” (KS)

  2. sarahhazel says:

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie

    A thought from David “The small and simple things now prepare us for the greater things ahead.” (KS)

  3. Candy says:

    Hmmm, makes me wonder…is he talking about this life…or next. Or both…

  4. sarahhazel says:

    Candy–Hi! you are my archubrain twin this morning….haha!

  5. Kimberly Ann says:

    Pastel BOISE!! ha all of Boise was EPIC!! thanks!!!!!

    love the quote.. oh and what does it mean?!
    not to mention a quoted from the man himself!
    WOO HOO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh my goodness! We got a tweet from the man!?
    Lol…what a neat surprise. I wonder what moved him to send that message!?

    And that top pic, I had to pause in my scrolling and go back and look again. I love him in that blue.

    Thanks Pastel! 🙂

  7. sarahhazel says:

    Oh….Happy Tuesday, everyone! Fantabulous post, Pastel!!!
    He looked awesome in that blue shirt!
    Debbie’s one real go-getter getting him to sing a Spanish song….haha!
    Can’t wait to hear him sing more and record a Spanish album!

  8. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi ya Sarahhazel. 🙂

    Candy, Kim, do you think I am one of those people who jump on you when you voice an opinion?

  9. sarahhazel says:

    Hi, KimA and Shanny!!!

  10. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, I guess he’s talking about now and the future. It’s a concept i’ve heard before…but WHAT or WHY did he send that particular message out of the blue like that? lol Was it just resonating with him right then when he was emailing Kari and so he decided to just add it in for us lol?
    He must surely know we’re going to go off on all sorts of speculating tangents now….!….? lol

  11. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny nope you just have opinions.. like that. by the way I don’t mind folks doing it I understand it for the most part. we love David to bits and want all that he does and is to be perfect I suppose? oh and for the most part I think David is one heck of an amazing talent and guy or I wouldn’t be here.
    just that he is human (ha well I think so anyway 🙂 ) and well no one is perfect. ha yes folks even David.
    ha thing is though David not perfect is so much better then most folks out there.

  12. Candy says:

    Shanny- like everyone else you have your thoughts, opinions which I dont mind. I dont mind a different opinion, its when people fall out of the woodwork to drive home their point for days on end. *Beating that dead horse*
    Ive learned over the four + years Ive been coming here to be cautious about what I say especially where David is concerned. I know there are others that feel the same…poor josie tiptoes around for days before saying anything. It shouldnt be that way…but it is what it is. I love a good discussion but at times (most times) it isnt worth the angst it stirs up!

  13. Kimberly Ann says:

    maybe David is missing us or maybe folks are reading the natives are restless?
    whatever it is I don’t care.. love the message and that it was from him!!!!!

  14. Kimberly Ann says:

    Holly ‏@hollyreFOD
    @FODFansofDavid I got an email from Sears saying my @DavidArchie cd is being processed. Maybe I won’t have to wait 2 weeks?

    OMH ALREADY!!!!??? YES!!!!

    ha lucky girl!!

    Holly ‏@hollyreFOD
    @kimak @Marylee_NCGirl @FODFansofDavid @DavidArchie Looking forward to new pics!

  15. potluck8 says:

    Good morning everyone, I hope he is talking about his future in music here on earth , and not about singing with the angels.

  16. Kimberly Ann says:

    potluck ha did have that thought. can’t imagine Kari would tweet that to the folks on twitter if so? most of his fans there are not lds.

  17. Oinkiers says:

    Good Morning everyone!! 😀 I think it is here on earth and I truely believe it…..

  18. Candy says:

    kim-same here it was a message from David, hope he knows we are still here waiting for his return. Reminds me to get my postcard in the mail.

  19. Shanny in Australia says:

    Well that’s good to know. Always remember, I operate best with straight talk, so if you have a problem with me, you have permission to let me know. lol
    I love Josie. She’s great. A sweetheart.
    I think we all feel at times we have to be careful with what we say. I guess that’s what you do when you want to retain civility and respect and friendship.
    Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing but it does require respect and self restraint at times too. I guess we all just have to do our best to feel our way along and figure out when and how to say things. I tend to think most things can be said if you figure out HOW to say it. But sometimes, timing is important too. I want people to be able to express themselves.

  20. sarahhazel says:

    Maybe he’s talking about the “foundation” since it’s only a year to go before his comeback…..
    Or maybe it’s just something that came to mind and he just wanted to give us words of wisdom to live by…..simple as that…..maybe.

  21. tami says:

    potluck~ that was my first thought, that he was talking about heaven, but why? maybe he feels the end of world is near. ??? he is so intently spiritual right now that maybe God is sending him visions/messages to share with us.

  22. Candy says:

    potluck, that was my first thought too, what future is he talking or thinking about.

  23. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sheesh, I hope his singing will be here on earth too! lol
    I presume you didn’t mean heaven when you said him singing with the angels Potluck…? lol

  24. Grannycrush says:

    My dad always told my sister and I, “Just because it is in your head, doesn’t mean you have to say it out loud.” I really didn’t get that when I was really young, but now in my old age, he was so right. We are all intitled to our opinion, but sometimes what we are thinking doesn’t need to be said to the public. I think everyone here does a pretty good job of thinking about how it might be received before we “speak”. Sometimes it is the way we say it, too. That is hard when we are not face to face and doing it in the written word.

  25. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY David Tweet day! The man tweets a thought…via Kari! Just hope that means he has big things planned for 2014! 🙂

    THANKS for the AWESOME POST Pastel! FABULOUS PICS too! Como La Flor sure started us thinking Spanish song or album! Want that SPANISH music from the man!

    Year anniversary postcard in the mail!


  26. Shanny in Australia says:

    I wouldn’t read any more into it, other than he can see how some of the experiences he is having on his mission are helping him prepare for challenges or situations he anticipates coming up in the future.
    Hopefully that future he is envisioning is the post-mission one…and hopefully he is missing us just a teeny tiny bit…and maybe he is thinking about the future since it is virtually the half way point of his mission. I bet ya anything, the halfway point is causing him to reflect upon the past year and to anticipate the next year and beyond.

  27. Kimberly Ann says:

    lol well at least I thought he was human..

  28. sarahhazel says:

    There, he got us thinking deeply again….LOL….which is good….but what I miss is his random, funny, light-hearted tweets….yup, that’s what I want to see… a senorita giving him the #3 out of the blue…..haha!

  29. tami says:

    i bet david wants to come home now and he is trying to convince himself that he needs to stay

  30. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny- actually I think I remember where I read that…… 🙂 It really is a great saying to follow!

  31. Shanny in Australia says:

    Grannycrush, so very true. I need to learn to say less in many areas of my life. lol

  32. sarahhazel says:

    Rachel Evans♚ ‏@YouCantBeMe_

    Someone needs to send out a search party for David Archuleta… He dissapeared.

  33. sarahhazel says:

    Help me come up with a caption for this one…..

  34. tami says:

    uh oh the pope election begins in one hour! think this is historic Biblical prophecy coming to pass!

  35. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami ha I like your interpretation.

  36. Oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- 🙂 I miss them too!!

  37. Shanny in Australia says:

    Actually, I have found keeping a journal is extremely cathartic for when you’re trying to say less. Writing it all down somewhere seems to help get it out of your system. No wonder David likes to journal.

  38. sarahhazel says:

    Oinkiers–Hi! my all-time faves are the “mistaken identity” ones… Ricky Archuleta one…haha! 😆

  39. sarahhazel says:

    We should gift him a David Archuleta Greatest Tweets Book. 🙂

  40. Oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- I love how he just lets them believe it haha!!!

  41. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oinkiers…haha, you had me searching for it. lol
    I’ll try again tomorrow maybe. 🙂

  42. sarahhazel says:

    Oinkiers–I think it’s funnier that they believe him….LOLOLOL

    I’m sure he’s gone through a lot of funny situations there….hope one of these days he shares them with us……cuz I really miss funny David!

  43. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nooo! I hate how he just lets them believe it! Can you imagine how they must be kicking themselves if they figure it out! I know I would never forgive myself for having missed the awesomest opportunity on earth to talk to Mr David Archuleta!
    Plus, they must feel eternally embarrassed. lol

  44. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny- Alma…… 😉

    Sarahhazel- I love the most random like…… “its raining outside” for some reasom even with those tweets he always gets some people pondering LOL!!

  45. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ohhh, and here I was searching the March Ensign. lol

  46. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny 😆 embrassed LOL!!

  47. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–I hope they did figure it out….haha….but at least they got to talk to him randomly like that….without having to control their spazzing….which is very difficult, I tell you, if you’re a big fan….and he’s right there in front of you 😯 !

  48. sarahhazel says:

    Cindy #DA2014 ‏@CanadianArchie

    @DavidArchie WAIT…. (Brakes screeches!) .. Are you thinking about MARRIAGE and stuff?!? @kariontour lol.

  49. Oinkiers says:

    SHanny- 😆

    Sarahhazel LOL!! SPAZ!!! I would hope to say I would be cool, calm and collected….. 😉

  50. sarahhazel says:

    Oinkiers–love those really random stuff too… getting lost/asking for directions…..he’s got a way of making them sound really cute…..only the Archuleta!

  51. sarahhazel says:

    Weiyan haha. ‏@weiyannn

    OR PARENTHOOD RT @CanadianArchie @DavidArchie WAIT…. (Brakes screeches!) .. Are you thinking about MARRIAGE and stuff?!? @kariontour lol.

  52. tami says:

    oh here we go! LOL! another day of interpretation and in depth analyzation 🙂 thankyou david

  53. potluck8 says:

    I am a little bit lost with the conversation here. What did David do or say that they would kick themselves if they found out?

  54. sarahhazel says:

    Oinkiers–cool, calm and collected???…..well, can’t wait for your meeting-David-recap one day! 😆

  55. tami says:

    sean’s going on DWTS?!

  56. Oinkiers says:

    Sarahhazel- 😆

  57. sarahhazel says:

    potluck8–we were just talking about those funny D tweets about peeps who met him in random places and told him he looks like David Archuleta…where he told them he’s not and they believed him.

  58. sarahhazel says:

    tami–sean who???

  59. tami says:

    oh sorry sarah! The Bachelor Sean! i usually don’t go for blonds but he is a cutie

  60. Shanny in Australia says:

    Potluck, that conversation is about the times when people get david’s identity wrong and he doesn’t correct them. Like the time when someone asked if he was ‘Ricky’ Archuleta. And didn’t another time someone ask him if he was David Cook and he just said ‘no’. lolol

    ‘cool, calm, collected’ Lol Maybe we need to write down a few things on a piece of paper and keep it in our bag at all times in case we accidentally bump into Ricky Archuleta. Then instead of becoming speechless we can just whip out the piece of paper and refer to what to say ‘In case of meeting the man’. Emergency preps Archies style.

  61. sarahhazel says:

    Shanny–those notes are not gonna work….haha….. 😆

    BBL folks

  62. Shanny in Australia says:

    I bet some of those mistaken identity people go home and tell their friends & fam that they saw a guy who looked just like Ricky Archuleta today…and then they say…No, his name is David Archuleta …and then they look up david archuleta on the internet and see a picture of the exact same guy they were talking to that day…and then kick themselves while wishing a hole in the ground would open up right then and there. lol

  63. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny- haha!! Not a bad idea!

    Sarahhazel- 😆 I can imagine it now some one pulling a piece of paper out right in front of David….. LOL!!

  64. Shanny in Australia says:

    groan….you mean to say it gets so bad, no emergency preps will help Sarahhazel!?
    We’re doomed Oinkiers! 😯 😆

    And with that, I’ll take this doomed soul of mine off to bed to contemplate with agony my future helplessness…..


  65. cq#DA2014 says:

    Awesome Tuesday post Pastel, thank you.
    OH MY GOODNESS: a thought from our man for us fans to analyse to cool,lol.
    I for one am interpreting it in this way: a little hint that what he is doing is working so that it will prepare him for the awesome opportunities that are waiting for him when he return to his career. For some reason that though just filled my heart with joy!!!

  66. Philly Fan says:

    Since I’m sure he is immersed in what he is doing right now for his mission experience maybe a postcard that says we miss those random tweets would jog his memory and since it will soon be his last year of his mission he will send some of those through Kari to get him ready for coming home. It would sure start a lot of buzz on twitter. lol

  67. tami says:

    looked at david’s tweet again. he says “greater things” so at least he is planning/expecting to do big things when he gets back, either here on earth or in heaven

  68. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny 😯 LOL!! Good night!!

  69. Oinkiers says:

    Cq- Great idea!!! 😆

  70. tami says:

    someone on twitter just said david’s tweet is scripture. didn’t know! i thought it was just his thought. wonder why david would send us off on a religious convo again? maybe cuz Easter is near? ??

  71. Candy says:

    Oh bummer, and here I was hoping it was a sign of bigger and better things with his career. Well not that spiritual things arent nice too, just got sidetracked on the physical aspect of things.

  72. Candy says:

    tami-Im sure David eats, sleeps and breathes religious things 24/7. Thats the purpose of a mission and for the most part the purpose of his life too and how he chooses to live it.

  73. cq#DA2014 says:

    Don’t care still happy about the thought and refuse to bring it back to religion.

  74. Joy4archie says:

    I loved David’s tweet to us! Whether it was meant to be religious or not, still love the fact that he asked Kari to pass it on to us. So it shows he was thinking about us. 🙂

  75. Kimberly Ann says:

    Fuãd Steven ‏@FSteven
    He’s saying go buy ‘No Matter How Far’ so that more albums will come in the future. Simple. Do it.

    ha going with this interpretation!

  76. Good morning! Candy, Sarahhazel, Kimk, Shanny, tami, #cq, philly fan, Oinkier, Potluck8, Va Beach.
    Yea! We got a tweet from our Muchacho Guapo!
    He must know that his Archies are going to take this tweet and untweet it until we find out what he meant by it.
    I think he meant that there are greater things coming our way!!LOL! JMO
    I hope thats what he meant and maybe we will get tweets more frequently .
    Praying here!!!!
    Have work today, have a great day everyone. Will be lurking from work, See yall later.

  77. sarahhazel says:

    I’m going with @FSteven interpretation too! 🙂

  78. sarahhazel says:

    DAScholarship ‏@DAScholarship

    The small & simple things now prepare us 4 the greater things ahead-@DavidArchie A small,simple gift goes a long way.

  79. tami says:

    good morning linda! david is now tweeting LDS scripture. maybe he just realized he can reach more people thru twitter than going door to door??

  80. Kimberly Ann says:

    ♪♥Marylee~#DA2014♥♪ ‏@Marylee_NCGirl <- 9 mins of pure CHARM~ck out 8:00 marker ~@DavidArchie gets an "indirect" proposal lol his reply "thnxforheads up"☺

    ha this vid is a good one!!

  81. Kimberly Ann says:

    tami ha trying to start stuff.. whether he is or not it is a good saying.
    folks quote the Bible all the time and
    that thought can relate to any number of things.
    and from all that I have seen folks agree.
    David is immersed night and day in that.. would make sense with what he would message.
    now if he really ever does try and do anything directly that would be another issue.
    will be folks choices to follow or not.
    all I got is hope he picks up where he left and make good music. acting too cause I think there is a lot of potential for him.
    if he chooses to go religious online and elsewhere well that is his choice.
    not being into that I guess I would have to do what I need to.
    like the folks knocking on my door.. stop answering the bell.

  82. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–I agree….it’s a simple and universal message and that’s what’s important.

  83. sarahhazel says:

    cathy ‏@Cathy_DA2014

    @kariontour @DavidArchie funny, this is on the tee shirt I wore today. 🙂 #random

  84. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel it is.. kind of reminds me of the saying that life is made up of the small stuff while waiting for the big stuff to happen.

  85. sarahhazel says:

    MarthaPB ‏@mlpb3

    David Archuleta “Don’t Run Away”: via @youtube 32,969 views!! Let’s get to 33,000 within the next hour!! Easy!!

  86. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Just FYI, David didn’t quote the LDS scripture word for word, but it is in reference to it. It is a quote from the scripture used a lot in conference talks and elsewhere. It’s in the Book of Mormon in Alma. Part of it says “by small and simple things are great things brought to pass”. I won’t quote all of it, though I did on Twitter if anyone wants to see it.

  87. breanne says:

    LOVE your post today Pastel! David looks amazing in that blue shirt!! I’m glad Kari sent that tweet for David because it lets us know he is thinking about us. Sure do miss and love that guy!! ♥♥

    Vote 1 song hourly for Don’t Run Away & Rainbow on Chart Central!!

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

    Hello Everyone! lol, you guys are too funny, trying to figure out what David meant by the tweet. Its simple really. You know how he is. He see’s a sign on the road, thinks its funny or interesting, he tweets a pic of it or tells us about it. I’ve probably had 1,000 sayings told to me or have read them & had no idea they came from scripture, or not, over the years. Who cares, its a nice saying & can be applied to our lives in so many ways. He has also said that, experiences he’s had in his life, good or bad, have helped him or someone else, later in his life. Maybe a class you took for one thing, might help you with something totally different later in life or something difficult thing you went through before, helps you overcome a bigger obstacle now. Or, when you cooked your first turkey & forgot to take the inside stuff out & now when you have to cook Thanksgiving dinner for your family, including a “peske, troublesome mother-in-law or father-in-law”, you’re ready to knock their socks off with a great meal, because of the 1st mistake 😆

  89. Lucy says:

    Hey guys, something kind of interesting here, I like to check the iTunes Charts from time to time, the top 1500 pop album one mostly and right now both versions of his first cd and TOSOD and BEGIN, and also NMHF are in there! NMHF is currently at 685, and CFTH has been in the top 50 Christmas album list for a while. This may not be that big of a deal but it’s nice to see Davids music still in the charts even while he is away. TOSOD is not in this list a lot but his first cd is there almost all the time. Just wanted to share this with you all.

  92. Oinkiers says:

    🙂 It is just simple…… I love all the diffrent ideas on here!!

  93. tami says:

    seriously wondering if david simply tweets whatever is on his mind at the moment or if he carefully plans it out knowing we will analyze? can’t decide if he is simple or complicated or both. but he sure does know how to be mysterious! just wanna know if it’s intentional lol

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

    Gotta go, have a great rest of the day everyone 😀 Ciao!

    Thanks for all you do FOD!!!!!!!

  95. sarahhazel says:

    Lucy–thanks for the update! 🙂

  96. Candy says:

    Wasnt this past week conference week in Chile…if that is a quote used during conference talks, that would make sense for him to tweet it.

  97. Kimberly Ann says:

    Candy no clue.. ha I’m still going with the… buy my simple cd so when I get back I can record a whopper of one you all will go nutty for thought!!

  98. collegemom says:

    Lucy – do you have a link to the top 1500 chart? I can never figure out how to get that info. Thanks.

    I am having severe withdrawl!! missin 2 of my favorite things @Davidarchie TOUR & MY RICHMOND WRESTLING! FISTPUMPS!!

  100. Kimberly Ann says:

    Lucy good to know he is on there somewhere.. thanks!!

  101. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Afternoon everyone. Pastel super post. I love all of the videos.Proves that David gives a smashing performance every time. Love reading all of your interpretaions of the tweet today. I think the saying validates his reason for going on the mission and that his experiences there are going to make him appreciate all the things that will come when he returns. David always says what he means and means what he says. Anyone like him, who makes sacrifices and does what he truly believes in, will undoubtably be rewarded with wisdom. Okay I’m stepping off the soapbox now. If anything I love how he makes us think and ponder. Love you David. 🙂

  102. Oh my goodness you found me! Yes that’s me in the white coat in the back. My daughter
    is sitting in front seat and my friend is in the driver’s seat. I can’t believe I’m actually on your page after 4 years WOW! I only hope to thank David in person, someday. Thank you for posting my story.
    Debbie (the go-getter)

  103. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Lucy- Thanks for the ITunes update on the charts. David does good considering the competition and how oldies (artists) are releasing their music around the same times. They announced that JT sold a million on ITunes as of last night. Golly!!

  104. Kimberly Ann says:

    gosh all the promo, stuff going on with JT and this new cd.. hope Kari gives some of these ideas to David’s management for when he gets back!!

  105. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kim- Did you see the beer commercial with JT’s music on the Fallon show and SNL. I always thought that David should do a Sharpie commercial. He must have signed a zillion autographs by now. 😆 😆

  106. Kimberly Ann says:

    sgj I did.. saw it in other spots too. whoever is doing his promo etc gets a gold star from me!

    umm lol NO to the sharpie commercial.. toothpaste
    or ha even better CHAPSTICK!!! 😀

    geesh he does that on national tv.. kaboom!!
    a ton of chapstick will fly off the shelf!!

  107. JEB says:

    I’ve been wondering for awhile with all this talk of young Mormans getting married – many before they finish their college education, who supports these young people until they are ready to get a job? Is it usually the parents? Just wondering because I’m sure they face the challenges of needing a good education to get a decent job. Not trying to stir up any trouble here. I’m just wondering because it is different from my experience.

  108. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kim-Just got back from driving my grandson to his friends. Heck you are right. That chapstick video was so sweet. David has such a good nature. 🙂 Come to think of it, David could do any number of commercials except alcoholic beverages. 😆 😆

  109. Grammyj says:

    JEB, I live in a college town, and got married, back in the day, before I graduated from college. We lived on our student loans and part-time jobs. We lived in a tiny, cheap apartment. I’m sure that is how young, married Mormons would support themselves. Also one could be in school while the other has a full-time job.

  110. Oinkiers says:

    GrannyJ- Thats exactly what my husband and I did :)!! Went to school full time had part time jobs and a small apartment, we were able to buy are first house (the one we live in now) when

  111. Oinkiers says:

    WE WERE 25

  112. cq#DA2014 says:

    Imo getting married and struggling can come at any age. With friends and family that took the plunge early, a few are still married, but for the most part, marriage just didn’t last. Maybe the Mormon community have a lot better luck than anyone outside Mormonism, maybe the pressure to stay together and have babies makes them more willing to work on their marriage or just stay no matter what…I guess it’s a cultural thing…Of course I would like to see David happy and married, but I just would like for him to take his time and not be pressured to hurry up and get married right after he returns from his mission, but that’s jmo. We as fans have zero control (as it should be) over David’s personal life. The only control we have is deciding to buy his music on not…..

  113. sarahhazel says:

    Station in FL playing it!!!!!! 😀

    WIKD Now Playing ‏@wikdtest
    Don’t Run Away (No Matter How Far) by David Archuleta

  114. muldur says:

    WIKD is a college station, no specific format. Very few followers on twitter, I think they are worth a follow 🙂

  115. sarahhazel says:

    nancy ‏@muldur

    @wikdtest wow! THANKS FOR PLAYING Don’t Run Away by David Archuleta!!

  116. Hi! everyone, home from work. Hope you have all had a good day!
    It’s 80 here right now and will be all week.
    Good to be home! My home is modest but it’s my home sweet home!!!
    Sorry! feeling a little nostalgic, today

  117. JEB says:

    GrammyJ today college costs a lot more – like $25,000 – $50,000 per year. That’s why I was wondering how they could afford it without help.

  118. muldur says:

    Linda, I have been nostalgic quite a bit lately. I miss very much all the fun I had being able to go to shows and events and see friends. I know it’s going to all come around again, but still miss it.

  119. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–80 degrees? dang, I miss CA.

  120. Oinkiers says:

    80 degrees!!! :)!! Send it this way it is suppose to be 50 on Fri. :)!!

  121. Ali says:

    JEB – Think it depends on where you go. I was in college not too many years ago, a public state university. My tuition and room & board ran about $10,000-15,000 per year. My parents weren’t financially able to help out so I paid for my school with a combination of scholarships, grants and loans. I also worked a part time job to pay extra expenses. Of course, if you’re looking at the upper tier schools the cost is quite a bit higher.

  122. Shanny in Australia says:

    Jeb – ditto to what the others said. Live frugally, work hard. That sort of thing.

    I was laughing over the scripture connection…..david has tweeted things like that before and it was never a big deal. As some have said, it wasn’t a direct scriptural quote, it has a universal message and I don’t think it was preachy. Now if he started tweeting ‘Repent and be baptized’ or something then I’d expect a ton of squealing. lol And I think we’d all have our socks shocked off us too. Lds or not. lol

  123. Shanny in Australia says:

    Here in Australia and New Zealand most students study at a university near their home and live at home. Going away to college is a big American thing. Just a FYI. lol

  124. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny lol will David be the one doing the baptizing? 😉

  125. Pastel says:

    Hi everyone, hope you are having a great night so far, and that you voted on the poll. Please do so, we want the virtual concert to be the vids that YOU selected!

    And hello Debbie. We loved that fact that we could put your story together with the vid I found on youtube and the Como La Flor /San Antonio connection came together. Did you know the vid existed? I love what the girls said about you and your group 🙂

    We love that all of you visit FOD, either commenting or lurking.

  126. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- 😆 😆 On the latter staement.

  127. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    *statement* sorry

  128. Shanny in Australia says:

    Kim, I think Kari would have known a lot of the tricks of the trade beforehand. But circumstances and the artist’s vary I guess. JT can probably get in doors david can’t and he’s probably willing to walk through doors david isn’t.

  129. Shanny in Australia says:

    Supergrand 🙂

    Kim – 😆 now you have a point there! I’m sure it could be arranged for David to do the baptizing. Um….can I pretend I haven’t been baptized yet….. 😉 😆

  130. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha this came to mind…

  131. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny ha I bet he would be onto us..

  132. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- I agree with you on that. BTW So glad to see you here today. I was just starting to worry about you. Missed you these las couple of days. Feeling better, I hope.

  133. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi ya Pastel. 🙂

  134. Kimberly Ann says:

    Shanny there are so many ways to skin a cat.. just the fact that JT is getting himself seen is good.

  135. Kimberly Ann says:

    Pastel oh I voted.. BOISE ALL THE WAY! loved what he had on too!!

  136. Just voted 200 On musiqtone, I love these stations playing DRA. Maybe not the Biggies. but they are playing it. New listeners, maybe new fans.

  137. sarahhazel says:

    Eww….but sweet…LOL

    ♡gabi♡ ‏@archuletascrush
    @DavidArchie my love for you is like dirreah, i just cant hold it in

  138. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ha, haven’t heard that song for years. Notice how, other artists have monetized their video’s these days. I’ve often thought david should do that too.

    I’m pretty sure david would be onto us. lol
    And of course, it’s just all jokes. Baptizing people for the wrong reasons is not a good move.

    Supergrand, aww thank you. Yes i’m feeling a lot better now. Wasn’t well for a couple of weeks and then I had insomnia too so that made things drag out a bit longer, plus family stuff going on etc. But it’s just easy stuff ahead for the rest of the month now. 🙂 Thanks for caring. 🙂

  139. sarahhazel says:

    Emily Tramontana ‏@emmtramontana

    Downloading a ton of David Archuleta songs

  140. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kim- Missionary Man and the Eurythmics. Oh my heavens, Annie Lennox looked so young. That was jamming. I missed that song and them. I knew of the Eurythmics but was probably occupied with my four kids. Anyways, thanks for he video, I really enjoyed that. 🙂 I love the message,too. 😆

  141. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sarahhazel, you’ve got to wonder would people tweet these things if he was here and potentially reading them…? lol

  142. I wonder if @on air with Ryan Seacrest is playing GG album?

  143. pocoelsy says:

    Hi there all

    A quick stop today to say thank you to Pastel for the fantastic post and for always supportive of my vids…thank you for post it on FOD front page :). Since the gifting program’s announced I think it’s safe if I want to spread the words on my FB !?! thank you to all the generous doners <3

    The black and white pic was so beautiful, so nice to get words from the man himself, I saw twitter and here are explode with all the speculation haha David's good at it…like to keep people thinking/hanging lol.
    Choose Como La flor, love when he sings in Spanish tho I don't understand a word…it sounds so romantic, urr and what does como la flor mean, exactly hehe?

    Thank you all for taking the time to watch my vid, hope it puts a little smile on you face(s). Have to go now busy day ahead!! good day/night all.

  144. Kimberly Ann says:

    Eurythmics Sweet Dreams
    great song for David to cover
    great message
    the way she wails.. he could kill us
    drum beat is awesome
    even acoustic would be fabulous!
    not to mention David likes Annie!!

  145. Pocoelsy. COMO LA FLOR means LIKE THE FLOWER>

  146. Kimberly Ann says:

    Linda probably not.. was just a poll.

  147. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi Poco. 🙂

    Oh and here I was, certain that Como La Flor meant ‘On the floor in a coma’ because he just slayed me with that voice.

  148. Oinkiers says:

    Shanny- 😆

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

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are having a great day 😀

    On the way home, they played Santana on the radio & I could picture David singing with them. Oh, how I would love David to record with Santana, it would be amazing & talk about buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 😯

  150. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kim- That’s a great song. That’s the only one I know of. Forgot the title. Oye, I’m getting old. The music was in my head but not the Title. David does like Annie Lennox. A while ago they honored her on Grammy’s. She sang great.

  151. Lucy says:

    For collegemom, I’m not good at posting links but I go to for the iTunes lists, you can view the top 1500 in a lot of categories, for albums and singles.

  152. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Shanny- You are on a roll tonight. 😆 Hi, Oinkiers, pocoelsy, Linda and Beth.

    Kim and Beth you both have come up with really choice music for David. Santana was at the Latino We Are The World video with David. David was with all the greats that night. Any one of them would do great making an album with him. 🙂

  153. Hi! Beth, I love Santana. My daughter went to one of his concerts once, said he was awesome. David would be great dueting with Santana.
    SHANNY 😆 😆
    SGJ, Hi! 😉 😉

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

    Hey supergrand! I cant wait for David to record a spanish cd 😀

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

    Hey Linda! I do too. Maybe David was able to chat with Santana at the We Are The World deal. I know he wasnt there for himself, but you never know what can happen.

  156. Kimberly Ann says:

    heck a Spanish cd.. all he has to do is come back tan and latino.. speak with an accent and girls will go wild!!
    ha also the ones who think they are young!
    my guess.. we’ll hit over 500 comments every day just on spazz!!!

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

    kimk, actually, I think that would be the thing to do when he returns, work on a Spanish cd, along with a Christmas tour, plenty of buzzaroonie 😀

  158. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- Yep that’s what David needs. Lots of buzzaroonie!! 😆 😆

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

    supergrand, Thats right Buzzzzzaroonie 😀 Just think, in two weeks we get NMHF & 2 days after that, it will have been a year since David left, then we’ll be on the countdown to when he returns, WOOOOT!

  160. Kimberly Ann says:

    Beth makes sense to me!

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

    Anyone else having their allergies going bonkers??? Mine are driving me crazy 🙄 😀

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

    kim, are you a bit alarmed that you think I made sense 😆

  163. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- I’m on that page. Only wish it were that he was coming home in two weeks and making buzzaroonie all over the place. Looking for a pair of red sequined shoes to click the heels together. 😉

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

    supergrand, 😀

  165. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Going over to twitter now and then up to bed and hopefully watch JT again tonight on Jimmy Fallon. Goodnight all. See you tomorrow.

  166. SGJ! Hope you find those red slippers, so you can click them and say,
    So hurry home David.

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    G’night supergrand!

  168. Goodnight Beth!! sweet dreams.

  169. Goodnight SGJ!, Dream with david!!!

  170. Miss Vicki DA#2013 says:

    I just love it when David sings in Spanish…..Coma La Flora is PERFECT…He must do a Spanish album when he gets back…What is all this talk about college and getting married….Is this the new David rumor out there today???…….It must be cultural to come back and get married right away after your Mission. Mormons expect young adults to abstain from sex before marriage so it must be the practice in the Mormon culture to marry quickly so pre marital sex is not a temptation. I think David will take his time in getting married. I can’t see him just marrying anyone around just for the sake of getting married……I may be wrong though…Maybe he has developed a romantic interest in one of his lady friends back home and plans to marry when her returns….Who knows…..Miss Vicki

  171. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Where is everyone????….Did everyone go to bed??? I was late to the party again…..Miss Vicki

  172. Aaron Paul ‏@AaronPaulSongs

    Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a sequel to Nandito Ako filmed entirely in the USA this time called FOREVER WITH YOU? Hmmmm…

    Aaron Paul ‏@AaronPaulSongs

    @percinotpercy 2014. Josh and Anya go on a concert tour in the USA. Josh bumps into an old lover. Sequel to Nandito Ako? “Forever With You”?

  173. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! Another day closer to No Matter How Far!

    EXCITED for the virtual concert Saturday! THANKS FOD! Hope I get home from work in time! David’s first solo concert was EPIC! To see how comfortable he got on stage and with the audience as the tour progressed is FUN to watch! Can’t wait till his return to the stage! LOVE the WORLD TOUR idea!

    Off o vote and then Nana patrol! ENJOY YOUR DAY! 🙂
