  1. Allaboutdavidarchuleta- How do you get this information so fast about where David is traveling to or what he is doing? It is kind of impressive. lol. :)

  2. I feel a little bad for saying this, but I’m a little frustrated with David right now, and I probably don’t have as much patience as I’d like to. ha.

    • VJ, to eliminate your frustration, eliminate your expectations. Fans have no basis for any expectations. David is the artist. He shares what he creates with us, when he is ready to do so. He is not on any fan based time table. Live your life. David is living his. This site has many people who truly believe that they are entitled to “know” what is going on with David’s life and career, and when they don’t get what they think they are entitled to get they are “disappointed” and blame David for their low expectations. They repeat it so often, it starts to take on an aura of credibility that it doesn’t have in the real world.

      • bliss~ Hi. I’ve heard “eliminate your expectations” and “live your life” quite a bit recently, and I agree those things can help. Living life…no problem there. But eliminating expectations…depending on what the expectation is, that may or may not ever happen. I’ve let go of the expectation that he’ll be a megastar with a major label, or that he’ll keep us in the loop about a lot of things. But I don’t think it’s entitlement to expect a teensy bit of communication as to whether he’s resuming his career or flipping burgers. lol.

  3. If you’re going to hang with mostly women on a fan site, you should learn to talk about your own feelings without trying to tell other people how they should feel or express themselves.

    • I wonder why david hasn’t tweeted today, busy dating, hanging out with family and friends and singing in churches,it shame there was still no any tweets of him in the studio, yes it is kinda of disappointed. Nite guys

    • CCHalo, it does appear that the “mostly women” on this site have not the slightest difficulty expressing themselves about a host of issues, including how they feel about me. I plan on being just like them and will be expressing my feelings in the same uncensored way.

      My only wish is that when someone cannot help but post how disappointed and/or frustrated they are with David, they stop and take into account that David might be hurt by those statements, and refrain from doing so. Unfortunately, like so many here with their low expectations of David, I have the same low expectations that David’s feelings will prevail over those who feel that the “right to post any damn thing I want about David” is some sort of high calling.

    • I think Fans are already really upset at david been lacking of new music for couple of months and if I don’t hear any new music tweets from david soon I am done being a fan of him but if we still don’t any music news soon I think david maybe doesn’t want to do solo music just to do more church related and other things, so be it.

    • So basically, Candy, Marie et al will post an LOL to any post that mocks me in any way. These are grown adults folks, some with children older than David. This behavior shown be studied at the University level, and David should be kept far away from it.

      Rx, I hope your plea to HG is heard by her before things deteriorate any further.

  4. VJ-“But I don’t think it’s entitlement to expect a teensy bit of communication as to whether he’s resuming his career or flipping burgers. lol.” Exactly- could not agree with you more . David’s music career is on David and his team (is there even one? I am not so sure which is always been part of the problem) not the fans. I don’t know why some folks here have gotten upset in the past when it has been mentioned that David is going to have a “local” career as that it what it appears to be to me. These are David’s choices and his career not the fans. I just think it is more than fair if he communicates with the fans what he is doing with is music career -not his personal or spiritual like-his music career. I also do not mean another vlog-I just don’t like the vlogs and there are not done by other music artists.

    • On the subject of v-logs. I know lots of fans like them and some think it’s not necessary. I was wondering how that got started with David. I think maybe now that he is older he may choose to forego them or recuce the number given, say like to special holidays. Marie I think more music news is important and I would be ok if he gave up v-logs. I dont mind the personal and spiritual things as long as there is balance.

    • It really doesn’t have to be a vlog, just small tidbits like this example would keep the excitement going:

      @biancamerkley Yes :) Today was backing vocals for @davidarchie. I will be recording some new solo stuff soon though! I am also finishing a duo project called Gusto that I’m
      excited about. Lots of stuff in the works :)

      Carol, I agree a balance.

  5. Marie, you say, “I don’t know why some folks here have gotten upset in the past when it has been mentioned that David is going to have a “local” career as that it what it appears to be to me.”

    The notion that David is going to have just a “local” career was posted here by Peter many months ago and has been repeated by others since, including today, by you. Because there are no facts to back up that claim, and because David has never had just a local career, there must be another reason to post and re post that assumption.

    IMO, the reason to post it is the same reason that some people like to criticize his faith, his management, his motivation, his clothing, his hair, his this and his that. Some people are angry with David, but they would never admit it. They feel that David has betrayed them, deserted them, and made them look like a fool for continuing to wait for him to “do something”. Instead of publicly admitting it, they try to deflate David, minimize him, trivialize him, and yes, blame him for what he is “doing to them “. They say things like “he had so much potential, so much promise, etc. and talk about his talent and career in the past tense. I see it here all the time.

    Dan Clark invited David to join him on his tour because David is an internationally known and beloved singer, not because he sings at ribbon cutting ceremonies in Provo.

    Saying that David “only wants a local career” or, worse yet, can only have a “local career” is an insult to David. David is a musical genius of the highest quality. Saying that David Archuleta will only have a local career is like saying that Picasso, in his day, will only draw pictures on napkins. It’s an absurdity.

    • What Bliss really meant to say –

      Marie, you say, “I don’t know why some folks here have gotten upset in the past when it has been mentioned that David is going to have a “local” career as that it what it appears to be to me.”

      I dasagree with your statement because,

      Dan Clark invited David to join him on his tour because David is an internationally known and beloved singer, not because he sings at ribbon cutting ceremonies in Provo.

        “The past is to be learned from but not lived in.”

        David is internationally known because of AI, his first album and career before his mission. He continues to be on the radar for many people, but especially for Mormons like Dan Clark. His future career could go any direction, but keeping it smaller or local, is always a possibility, mostly depending on his own desires.

      • What Bliss should’ve said –

        I disagree with your statement because, IN MY OPINION Dan Clark invited David to join him on his tour because David is an internationally known and beloved singer, not because he sings at ribbon cutting ceremonies in Provo.

        But Bliss always knows what David is thinking so he must know what Dan Clark was thinking as well

    • “…David is a musical genius of the highest quality.” David Archuleta having a local career is like “Picasso, in his day, only draw[ing] pictures on napkins.”

      That’s really a great analogy. Sigh, if you could use your skills for good instead of using them to insult others–think how much more David-like that would be.

  6. That ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has me intrigued. I wonder how David would even know he was challenged if he doesn’t read all his tweets. Did anyone see that Charlie Sheen didn’t do ice? He did 10K? Whoever thought up this fund raising campaign is brilliant.

      • I hope so. Would love to see David do it and would love to hear who he would then challenge. Hmmmm, he should challenge his beautiful mother and aunties LOL

      • Hmmm, I reread my challenge comment and it reads sort of sarcastic and it truly was not meant that way at all. I think his Mom and aunties are gorgeous and it would be fun to watch them take the challenge.

  7. I don’t think david is doing the ice bucket thing, I think he would have tweet if he wanted to do it, maybe he isn’t up to it. What david had tweeted today, it could mean anything. I hope he is still thinking coming back to the studio soon.

    • I think that that’s a good question, but I don’t think we know the truth.

      Re: ice bucket challenge. I think it’s a great and effective way to raise funds for ALS, and it’s been a big trend in my circles–my daughter and friends of mine–but I could see that it could also be seen as celebrities doing it as self-promotion–and we know that David doesn’t really go in for that.

  8. Whadd, thanks for taking time out from your hectic throwing up schedule to comment on my post. On the other hand, I really don’t need you to tell me “what I should have said”. I said what I said. If you have something to say about it, feel free to do so. I welcome all commentary, pro or con, to anything I post.

    • Bliss, you say, “Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”

      Heed your own advice and stop trying to tell people what they can and cannot say and think

    • What bliss meant to say –

      Whadd, thanks for taking time out from your hectic schedule to comment on my post.
