You still hold the key….

– Let us know if this is your pic & we’ll credit

Love this pic, which is pretty much in focus, but the angle of his head and the eye crinkles as he laughs – it’s just so David.  Love the bracelets for various causes, the ring, rolled up sleeves and the vest!

He’s Coming to Save the Day

– American Idol

Well, if Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly has his way, David would be part of a grand plan to save the ailing Idol franchise from doom.  In one of those David Archuleta “Six degrees of separation” moments, I was reading an article in Entertainment Weekly – the one featuring Bruno Mars on the cover:

This one!

And there were a few articles about American Idol – discussing the falling ratings for Season 12, the conspiracy theory “manipulation” by the powers that be to ensure the winner was a girl this season and the overall downhill slide of Idol from the reigning King of Reality TV to its current status of “Keeping Up With The Voice”.  Even though I have lost interest in anything Idol post-Season 7, I’m still magnetically drawn to read all articles and watch every news tidbit about Idol in the unlikely chance that there will be some tiny mention of David – and this time, I was rewarded!

In a nutshell, Mr Ross suggests taking a page from the Survivor revival book – featuring past contestants from the “Glory Days” of Idol and giving them another shot at the crown!  The twist is that there would be 6 or so contestants  selected the traditional way, via auditions, so the viewing public could still get their “She bangs, she bangs” and bikini girl moments, because that’s what the viewing public wants – contestants making fools of themselves.  However, the 6 chosen ones would get the surprise of their lives when they find out they are competing against fantastic finalists from previous seasons!  We could once again feel the thrill of voting madly for 2 hours – and this time we could change history with our well-practiced voting fingers!

It’s a bit gimmicky and smacks a little of desperation, but if it means we would get to watch David sing weekly on tv again, well….  WE’LL TAKE IT!

I doubt that David would ever agree to such a proposition, but we can dream, and hope and pray that someday we’ll once again be able to tune in weekly to watch David sing his heart out for a tv audience of millions – the world deserves that…. and so does he.

Kari Shares A Blurrific  “David”Collage!

After an invitation for Kari to join in all of the blur fun, Kari put together an awesome gift of blur for all! Thank you Kari!!! you ROCK!!!

David Archuleta Blurrificness shared by Kariontour *click to bigger it*

* * * * * *

It’s All a Blur!

A huge thank you to everyone who has participated in our fun, lighthearted competition to find the best of the best of the Blurs!  The week has flown by and we’ve been showered with memories of concerts past via the unfocused lenses of fanatic fans turned amateur photographers.  Matt Clayton we ain’t!  But the mere fact that we have saved every one of our pics of David, no matter how blurry (that was an album title reject btw), speaks to our desire to capture these precious memories and hold them close to our hearts.  These shaky, unfocused, poorly lit, awkwardly angled photos are proof positive that We.Were.There!

We were in close enough proximity to hear David singing live and we managed to keep our composure long enough to click that button, so years later as we wait (im)patiently for 2014 to roll around, we can scroll through our collection of photos and remember why we are waiting, and why it’s so worth it.

We got so many submissions that we aren’t able to post all of them, but we’ve selected a good representation of pics for you to vote on so you, the fans, can choose the Best Blur of them all!  We’ll have a poll in the Saturday post and voting will be open through Sunday.  The winning photo will grace the Monday post in the coveted position of Lead Pic!

Myheartsong (Robin) sent in 2 lovely entries from Fort Wayne:

– At the hotel – look Kari’s in the pic too!

– David is blurry but the cellphones are all in focus!

Archugeezer took this blurry blue gem, apparently from the front row!


Carmelita captured David reaching out to touch fans’ hands!

– Touch my haaaaaaand

Zelle caught the wave at the Bench premier!

– Rockin’ the Bench t-shirt

Remember Shorts-gate?  These pics caused a blur stir because David was wearing shorts!  Thanks to Jeff R for sharing!

– Duffy’s Hope

Cindy sent in 2 blurtastic pics of David in action!


– David/Demi Tour, Duluth GA

Angelbymyside captured 2 more David/Demi Tour pics!

– Atlantic City, NJ – shortish hair

– Up close & personal in Atlantic City, NJ

Miss Bianca submitted this beauty – love the sparkly rainbow effect of the sparkly suit!

– AI Tour Pittsburgh aka “Picksburg”

And last but not least, LSCtheLiverLady (Linda) managed to only get David’s shoes in the pic – but they’re great shoes!

– Kickin’ it in Beaumont TX

What a great collection of not-quite-focused pics!  Thanks for sharing!

Christmas in June!

The weather may be 85 outside and the sun is shining bright, but it’s always the right time for some David Christmas vids!  The links were shared by sarahhazel in comments, and while they may have been posted before, they’re certainly worth a 2nd look!  I watched them again and started dreaming of the next David Christmas tour!

    A quote David heard that he wanted to share: “What we love determines what we seek. What we seek determines what we think and do. What we think and do determines who we are – and who we will become.” (KS)

  2. sarahhazel says:

    Gorgeous top pic! Vest and white shirt…WOW!
    Nice mention by Entertainment Mag…..interesting concept but if you ask me, I wouldn’t want David to go back as a competitor there….it will be weird….a mentor and a guest performer would be a lot better!
    LOL…Cindy’s pic (MKOC-SLC) has got to be the blurriest one ever!
    Blurry but beautiful….love the “intense” pic by abms (NJ)!
    Awesome Manila vlog, that guy’s GOOD!
    Finally, the EYES on that last pic by the legendary Naree…OOOOOMMMMJJJJ.

    Happy Summer, LSCtheLiverLady! Really nice shoes pic! 😀

  8. Zelle says:

    Thanks Kalei for this awesome post! 🙂
    I’ll just re-post my comment in the previous thread here:

    Seriously wondering if the discussion on the no-contact issue in [the previous] thread has anything to do with that tweet from D/KS. Haha.
    Anyway it’s always a wonderful gift to hear anything at all from/about David. So thank you, Kari and Team Archie for all you do. [And you guys here too at FOD for keeping the Archu-spirit burning] We all surely miss him, and Kari has assured us once that she always reminds him that we’re all still here for him. No doubt he knows that. But he (and his team) has his reasons for everything he does. And there probably is a reason why he wanted to share that quote, too. So let the deciphering begin. Haha. #DA2014

    Wow, that BB concert sound 10X better on my big headphones!…Didn’t realize it was just uploaded early this year. I’m a happy camper! 😀

  68. Jhen says:

    sarah- it takes a lot of effort not to be influence by peer pressure or pressure that surrounds the showbiz industry, glad that David is a great role model, that make him gorgeous and cool in a real sense.

  69. Jhen says:

    I like the blurry picture with blue watch from NMHF.

Thousand apologies that I didn’t mention “Hawaii” on the map heehee I’ll go and correct it and also I’d like to include Europe, Middle East, Africa but their timing seems impossible for them …it’s like 2-3-4 am !!

    Kari, is the best <3 sending in the fantastic quotes from David and the blurry collage, I love the top right pic with blue watch…omg somehow I find his expression so "hawt-smacxxxyyy" and not in a "cougar" way it's just the way it is !!, I'm happily married and love my hub to bits haha.

  90. Jhen says:

    Linda- I’m a human resources manager, hiring and interviewing, I learn to analyze and interpret people personalities and behavior lol, that’s why sometimes I tend to analyze David movement, gestures while he was in Manila without intentions lol just automatic that comes on my mind. Sorry David, I dissect you lol

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

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well tonight.

    Was going to start to help trending, but I just realized its next Friday, lol.

    I would like to ask a question. Anyone who has experience with Sciatica, have you had it last more than a few weeks & can you be ok during the day, but after you fall asleep & wake up, then you get the zap of pain once, twice, three or four times in a row, then it eases up?

  92. Beth i have dealt with sciatica for yrs. come & goes. I just learn to live with it. At work, when i get up. or just sitting. comes & goes.
    Jhen, How interesting. No wonder you can analize David so much. I think its great!!!

  93. Kimberly Ann says:

    me thinks it is time David got out there and showed the world

    1. he is a real person
    2. he is alive
    3. he is an amazing voice
    4. he is an amazing performer

  94. Kimberly Ann says:

    Amen Kim! Just have to find the right people, along with Kari and the rest of his team who will help to get his name out there again. A little more than 9 months. EEEP!!!

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

    Linda, thanks for your response. I’ve had it off & on for years, but it usually got better each day once it happens, but I’ve had it for about 4 weeks now. Do ok during the day even sitting all day at a computer, but its when I wake up that it hurts like crazy, do you have that happen?

    Hey Kim! I think that video has alot of hits because people are curious, not because they love it, I dont know, think its pretty disgusting. I’m not a prude at all, but that was horrible.

    I think we should have a contest for pictures of David’s shoes! Here’s mine (shoes, water bottle and setlist) from CFTH in Waukegan, Illinois, 12/11/2009! 🙂

    Ooooppppsss! Forgot the link to picture of David’s shoes, water bottle and setlist! http://twitpic.com/tavqa

  103. Beth!!! Every morning!!! But it works its way out when i start moving around.
    I do a lot of stretching & touching my toes that makes it feel better.
    Aches & pains will just be part of my life now so i just deal with it & go with flow!!!

    Janel!! Do you get the feeling that as time gets a little closer, promoting Davids return will get a little more extensive????

  104. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Linda, I think so!!! Since he said things are in the works when he returns, more and more putting the CD’s he released for us will get out there, I’d think, and am willing to do my part as a fan to help along if Kari requires it of us. Probably a lot of planning going on among his team already. I would SOOOO love to give him a welcome home party. LOL But my guess is, the team will keep it a secret right when he comes home until he’s actually here. In Utah here I mean.

  105. Sarahhazel if you haven’t left yet? Got my 300 in

  107. McKenzie, we need to add the last 2 WWTT trends to 59 wouldn’t that make it 61.
    I know this was made a while back but just wanted to mention it> Thanks for all you do.

  108. Janel!! I agree!! I would just be happy to hear ” THE EAGLE HAS LANDED “

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

    Thanks Linda.

    Linda & Janel, I am excited that he was already planning things for when he returns. Who knows, like I said a while back, maybe he even has a deal worked out with a label for when he returns, because I’m sure there are plenty of labels wanting to sign him. They did when he met with them after he left Jive, I just think he saw the opportunity to go on a mission, something he always planned on doing, so he went. I’m happy for him, that he wont have the regret of not going. Regrets can be, well, regretful 🙄 I hope David allows someone to video his return at the airport like alot of other missionaries do, but I will understand if he doesnt. Gosh, I miss him.

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hi everyone! Hope your days were good ones!
    Lizardj, so nice to see you back & (((hugs))) and condolences to you.

    Ali, Kim, and all of you~ Just want to say thank you so much for your comments. (from the last post and today). Your support means so so much! ♥

  113. Kimberly Ann says:

    Joanie no brainer there.. you guys rock.
    way I see it it was really a non issue.

    The Eagle Has Landed
    ahh I like that..
    hope the ArchuFBI is on the ball and we get a heads up when it all goes down
    I have a feeling there will be quite a few new WWTT when he does.

  114. Mckenzie Harris says:


    The 59 WWTT were from Feb 17, 2012 to March 23, 2012 from the days leading up to the premiere of Nandito Ako to its finale. There have been about 37 more WWTT since then and up to end of March 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24g2TKF_Urs&sns=em

    Every Idol fanbase claims their favorite is popular on Twitter but I just think David Archuleta is in a league of his own. I never get offended by all the people who ask on Twitter about what happened to David Archuleta. At least it shows they care. David Cook won Season 7. Just try to find people asking about what happened to him on Twitter. When people don’t care enough to ask, you know you’re in trouble.

  115. Kimberly Ann says:

    Ericka Swift Archie ‏@ericka28archie 5m
    Okay this freaking blurry but hello to the always handsome face of David Archuleta. Where’s the clearer version… http://fb.me/1uKGkEVG9

    wonder if this was Kari’s pic?
    geez bet there are a ton of Matt Clayton pics we haven’t seen yet!

  116. Kimberly Ann says:

    McKenzie no clue about Cookie.. he seems nice but never had that ‘it’ factor for me. do notice interest is going down with D’s RT’s and such on twitter but sure it will pick up once he gets back and puts himself out there again.
    so far so good all we need now is the man himself.

    Don’t Let Go ~ David Archuleta ~ Providence RI ~ October 30 2009: http://youtu.be/UHMMuB2hp90 via @youtube I love the comments on this:)

    would be great if David toured with a big name artist again!!
    think of all the exposure.. plus we get vids like this!!!

  118. OoO says:

    I don’t want David to be opening act for anyone tho. What did they decided on David C & Archie when they did the shows together anyone remember?

  119. Jhen says:

    Kim- hope to see more of Matt Clayton pics that was not release, I’m sure there are ton of it. I want David to have solo concert more than tour with big name artist, because David might be just an opener if that happen. It might not help his singing career to prosper, his chances to break through could be harder.

  120. Jhen says:

    OoO- if it was David and David in Manila you referring, it was equal exposure for both of them, although Archie was the first one to performed. At the time, their AI winning still fresh, both of them still famous in Manila. That’s why their concert was jampacked.

  121. OoO says:

    Thanks Jhen I remember that discussions but that was cool. And another thing I really don’t want him to collaborate with anyone until after he has his hit into the mainstream first I don’t want people to think David needs help from other artist to get a hit songs. Sorry David for the dos and don’t hahahahah.

  122. Kimberly Ann says:

    Cookie and David concert in Manila was fun.. not sure it would help here in the states though.
    David would get a lot of exposure if he did tour with someone again in the US maybe like Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, etc? it has been a long time and things have died down here in the states.
    would think he needs to build up his fanbase again.

    Jhen is being a cougar a big thing in the states.. not really but I do think it is accepted more? the 1D boys have a lot of older fans.. lol from what I have seen Harry likes them older.
    ha ok he likes all girls, women period.
    guess here folks are more if it’s ok for a guy and a young lady it is ok for a lady and a young guy?
    all I got. women power I suppose

    Beth yeah that video is bad.. but Lady Gaga or say a Nicky Minaj vid have a lot of views too. hmm video with the most views I think is Gangnam Style and while it is catchy and funny pretty sure David would never do a lot of that if you get my drift.
    thing that really gets me about that video is she has a ton of young fans who will watch it.

  123. Kimberly Ann says:

    Tori Kelly Fans ‏@ToriKelly_Fans 11h
    I know I already tweeted this a long time ago but Tori Kelly and David Archuleta were SO cute on Star Search.

  124. Kimberly Ann says:

    Adele’s Someone Like You has 279 million views
    great song and great video.. nothing bad at all.
    not sure it is the video that attracts so many views though.
    think the song sells itself. if
    David ever puts out anything like Adele’s 21
    polished, stellar vocals, great deep writing sure all will work out for him


    really hope one day he covers this song!!

  125. Kimberly Ann says:

    oh man if he ever covers Someone Like You.. I am TOAST!!


  126. Jhen says:

    Kim- I first heard cougar in AI 9 judge Kara DioGuardi lol, because in the Philippines, seldom use that word cougar. I think it is not very open here, although there are some who are into older girl and young man relationship.

  127. Kimberly Ann says:

    Jhen lol do remember that.. think it is more a celeb thing? personally don’t see that happening in real life but then again I am not single and I don’t go out and mingle a lot to even know what is happening.

  128. Jhen says:

    Kim- I think people like extraordinary, larger than life, out of this world, weird artist and video, that’s why they got most view. Certainly, David will not go that way, that is not his personality. Glad Adele don’t go that way too, but still her song sells.Might be because Adele has a unique sounds, her music are different too, that’s why she make it.

  129. sarahhazel says:

    Good morning, all!!!

    Talk about super ADORBS!
    #Photo1ForToday ihhh imut banget kau archie *Poke David* _Poethry http://twitrpix.com/buzqm

  130. sarahhazel says:

    Would love David to cover BM’s When I was Your Man. 🙂

  131. sarahhazel says:

    Well, I don’t know if he’ll sing the 1st 2 words of that song….LOL… 😕

  132. Kimberly Ann says:

    hard to find any song, video David would do today as it stands.

    Jhen her vocals are front and center.. fabulous writing too.
    not sure I can say there is any song on TOSOD that would fit under that category.
    he has the voice.. my thoughts are that David hasn’t got the right label or team to help him achieve all he deserves yet.
    goal would be for his studio version to be better then his live version.
    think about it.. hasn’t happened yet.

    case in point Z100’s Elevator.

  133. sarahhazel says:

    I’m guessing David feeds off energy from the audience that’s why he sings more intense when LIVE. Maybe when he’s in the studio, he’s more into perfecting the basic melodies of the song and doesn’t want to think about too many runs and stuff???

  134. Kimberly Ann says:

    another way he could go is something like what Imagine Dragons is doing.. Indie Rock with amazing writing and musicianship.
    David has the vocals to handle it not sure about the other parts needed to acheive what they have going on.

  135. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel could be.. he needs an audience then! bet he could drum up a few volunteers!!

  136. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–me too…a rockish vibe to the pop might work wonders….not too rock though…still want his platinum vocals to stand out above all.

    I volunteer for the studio audience! 😉

  137. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY WEEKEND Kimberly, Jhen, sarahhazel and FOD!

    cq….Have a safe and FUN filled reunion with your family.

    Kimberly, sarahhazel….After the way David has planned his two years away, I have NO doubt that he’s got his return planned also. He is a businessman as well as an artist…makes sense that he’s taken care of business. Don’t think we give David and his team enough credit for what they’ve accomplished …just the last six months before he left blows my mind! Things I NEVER expected …and how AMAZING was it all!

    sarahhazel….I too think because of David being vocally trained, he tries for perfection on his recordings. Think LIVE he lets himself go with the crowd….and just ENJOYS the moment. And what moments there are…..gahhhhhhh!

  138. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha rock, Spanish, tan, 23… we are toast!!!!

  139. Jhen says:

    Kim- I bow down to David voice, but I think he should get some expert on arranging melodies that are catchy and get popular song writer, his team should take chance and experiment on something new. I agree that he need a solid label that could support him or team that could help him to his potential.

  140. Jhen says:

    Sarah- it’s true David got his energy from the audience when performing live, like all the singers said the outcome of the show is depend on the energy of the audience.

  141. Kimberly Ann says:

    think a great team, label could help him with that.

  142. sarahhazel says:

    VaBch–I do hope David and his “team” has already mapped out plans for his return…..after all, he’s gotta get back to making $$$ again….unless he decides to be just an “ordinary” person again, work for a company or have his own business or work for his church full time, get married & raise a family….LOL…JUST KIDDING! 😆

  143. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–I with ya on “experimenting with something new’ with the music.

  144. Jhen says:

    Va- I’m sure his team is planning already for his return. Since he left Jive, he actually done a lot, Asian concerts, US Christmas tour, Several albums, NA mini series, Bench endorsement, I think his team are doing well compare to his previous management.

  145. pocoelsy says:

    Spanish, tan, 23… we are toast!!!! lol this is truer that true !! and if he starts playing guitar on stage ….faint….

    Jhen Oh how I love to see him has great success !! Oh and he needs a great PR team who can promote him for who he is !!

  146. sarahhazel says:

    May he should take dancing lessons too….both Latin and some urban stuff…hehe….know he’s got it in him!

  147. Kimberly Ann says:

    ha dancing lessons????
    be still my heart.. yes please!!!

  148. sarahhazel says:

    He should just totally unleash himself this time….no more Mr. Holding Back! LOL

  149. pocoelsy says:

    After Jive, David had made a lot of decisions making and did it fast !! I love that about him, he’s the boss …the man in charge and we are the one who benefit from that 🙂

    You scared me a little there !!! 🙂

  150. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–I’ll be happy even with one little song with him playing the guitar!

  151. pocoelsy says:

    Dancing class !!! OMJ we’re in trouble !!! 🙂 bring it on Mr. David Holding Back Archuleta !!!

  152. Kimberly Ann says:

    lol guitar???!!!

    we’re throwing in the whole enchilada here!!
    and I like it!!

  153. Jhen says:

    Sarah- if older fans Latin dance, if younger fans hip hop dancing and modern dance.

  154. sarahhazel says:

    Let’s put them all together:

    Hottie tanned Latino doing a pop-rockish upbeat indie-sounding number accompanying himself with a guitar (acoustic or electric???)….then towards the end of the song, drops the guitar and pulls out a fusion of of Latino/urban dance number with a gorgeous young lady from the audience! 😯 #daid#

    LOL…where did the young lady idea come from???….hahahaha….

  155. Kimberly Ann says:

    whatever happens going forward will be fun.. hard to get things going these days.
    Phillip Phillips, Scotty, Adam L, most of the Idols are having a hard time selling themselves.

  156. Jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- love to see him performing with guitars. He decide fast on different gigs, since he don’t need to consult his label, that’s why sometimes I want him to be free without label who will control him that limit his accepting offers.

  157. Kimberly Ann says:

    sarahhazel omgosh.. ha can we send that request to Kari!!?
    yes please!!

  158. Jhen says:

    Kim- Is Scotty still popular in US? How about Adam Lambert? Adam suppose to have concert in the Philippines this year, but he cancel it, I don’t know the reason, if the concert producer cancel it or Adam cancel it.

  159. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–you do it….haha!

  160. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–have no idea on the popularity of those artists cuz I don’t follow news about them….just like many peeps don’t follow what’s going on with David…that’s why they think he’d “fallen off the face of the earth”.

  161. sarahhazel says:

    Jhen–true he might have more freedom without a big label but there would be limited promotion for his music & I think exposure is what he needs to jump-start his career, gain a wider audience/fan base and hit the charts again.

  162. pocoelsy says:

    OH Sarahhazel !!!
    Yes to all the hittie taned Latino !!! I can totally see those picture in my head !!!!

    Dear Kari and David team, will there be any slightest chance that we’re gonna see that in the near future!!!? We’ve been well behaved all this while :)… just saying…heehee

  163. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–we should ask Kari to put that on her “David request bucket list”. 😀

  164. Kimberly Ann says:

    lol volunteering me.. let me see what I can come up with? if anything she’ll most likely get a kick out of the request.

  165. pocoelsy says:


  166. sarahhazel says:

    KimA–yes, please!…wanna know what she says…haha!

  167. Kimberly Ann says:

    they are popular still some.. not like Carrie or Kelly though.
    do think David has the stuff to make it just does he want to or
    will he be able to get the right team together to make it happen.
    he did say in that vid he was getting some projects or whatever together
    before he left.
    sure was a firecracker in Manila.. he should do some of that here in the states!!

  168. Jhen says:

    Sarah- that’s why part of me want him to have label, so he be promoted well, another part of me want him to be independent, so his gigs will not be limited. Can’t really choose one lol

  169. sarahhazel says:

    Isn’t the Civil Wars under an independent label? Think there are many indie artists who made it big in recent years. Surely there must be a way to be indie and get good promotion. IDK 😕

  170. pocoelsy says:

    Thought the same too about Label and Indy, if only he can have the best of both world!!!

    What popular in music nowadays really have me scratching my head !!!Those AI finalists are really talented people and they can really sing and yet after a while their popularities just decline rapidly !!! i know that David has all the “it” factors only thing he lacks is a great team/lebel to give him the right promo he deserves

  171. pocoelsy says:

    What is Indie Label? when David put out “No Matter How Far” , was it under Indie Label or from his own pocket !?! ha dont mind me I just dont really understand the music biz !!!

  172. VaBeachArchie says:

    Jhen…I really like that David was in control and decided to try things in the Philippines…not any of that happening when he had a label. He really didn’t do much other then promote the music and stuff they had control over. Think David was branching out and seeing what works for him for the future. So many options for him to get himself out there…especially overseas. David WILL come back to music the artist he wants to be…he has it ALL …hope he uses it! So want to be TOAST! lol

    Just have one wish…that David hits the ground running when he gets back..I jut want to hare and see him SING! Know David will BLOW US AWAY ! He is after all THE VOICE!

  173. VaBeachArchie says:

    I think sometime people have a hard time letting that Idol image go…they really put him in a box! Really hard to break free from it…hope being more mature and away for awhile weill help when he returns. Latino hottie FTW!

    Off to work…LONG day today! Hope they soon hire me some help….want more time off to enjoy living at the beach! And more David time!! ENJOY your David time guys! 🙂

  174. pocoelsy says:

    Hello VaBeachArchie
    Hope so too for him to get the engine up and running as soon as he touches down and hope things will only look up for him, comes 2014 🙂

    I have to say good night now so sleepy !!! yawnnnn, see you all later, have a good day/night all 🙂

  175. Jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- most of winners and runner up in AI, their popularity goes downhill as the years past by except Carrie and Kelly, don’t know what happen, seems their popularity can’t sustain.

  176. Jhen says:

    Va- hope David career will still have the intensity and be back stronger and better. Hoping his management took better care of him. I have to sleep now, bye FOD family

  177. breanne says:

    Vote for David Archuleta on Musiqtone’s 2nd Poll “Idol Forever”. Scroll down on left side of page, ends tonight at 11:59 pm EST. 25 votes: http://bit.ly/IWPReh

    Reading comments about David coming back. I really don’t want him to do anything with AI because it would be great for him to make it on his own without being involved with them and their sinking ship. JMHO

  178. sarahhazel says:

    VaBch–I wanna be TOAST too…LOL

    Goodnight, pocoelsy and Jhen!

  179. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–I want him to perform on The Voice or X-Factor. 🙂

  180. breanne says:

    sahhazel, either one of those would be great or even perform on DWTS.
