Rain rain go away...

Don't come back another day!

It's a gloomy, rainy, yucky day out today. Rain and ice. And more rain.
I am decidedly not singing in the rain. Other than the fact I can't sing. Cats sing better. So that's better left up to David. I'm sure you'd agree.

Speaking of weather. Bets on him mentioning weather today?

It's back!

On a completely random and completely pointless note, twidroyd is back in action!!

I know, I know. This has nothing to do with anything. But if you follow me on twitter you'll know this is a huge deal.

Don't mess with my twitter apps. Serious business folks!

Carry on.

Dips can be good. Or bad. I prefer garlic.

Actually this is just a test post from my blogger app on my phone.

David Archuleta no longer with Jive Records

First there was rumor about this from Melinda, his former manager. But it looks like its confirmed.

From the Hollywood Reporter:
After Twitter lit up last night with rumors that David Archuleta had been dropped by Jive Records, his label home since 2008, a Jive spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that "David was released from our roster."

Archuleta's latest album, 2010's The Other Side of Down, failed to gain traction at radio or on the charts, where it's sold just over 63,000 copies. That's a far cry from his 2008 self-titled debut, which moved nearly a million units and has been certified platinum.


It's Friday, finally. The weekend is upon us.
Some of you might have a long weekend because of President's Day. Anyone have plans for the weekend?

Scary things!



Looks like David is no longer with WEG Management. So... now what?

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Change of plans.

You could borrow Rihanna's umbrella.

129)Something `Bout Love - David Archuleta 99,408

It would be nice if someday he could do some promo over in Korea or other asian countries as well like Japan and such.

Interview with Reader's Digest Philippines

This interview is from back in November when David visited the Philippines.
Here are a few excerpts I wanted to comment on.
No more “David Who?”

Archuleta was in Singapore for a promotional visit last November where he spoke to the media at The Ritz Carlton, Millenia hotel. Clad in a grey tee, black jeans and striped cardigan, the baby-faced crooner flashed his mega-watt smile at a roomful of journalists. Archuleta abandoned his usual shy and soft-spoken demeanour and amidst lots of laughter and even some good-natured tickling, opened up about his music, his family and his future plans.

Reader’s Digest: It’s your second visit to Singapore. Did you get a chance to sample more local food this time around?
Archuleta: It’s interesting because it’s hard for me to have seafood. Last year I wasn’t able to do any seafood, this time I’ve been more open to prawns so it’s, like, slowly but surely. I had some [seafood] when we were at Longbeach [seafood restaurant] and [in a sing song voice] I had chicken rice yesterday. That was good.

Your mum used to be a Latin dancer. Have you ever tried Latin dancing?
Yeah, I have actually. I love Bachata. I like to try Salsa. I just love that music. It makes me move.

Have you written any songs for your family?
I’ve written some songs about my family. A lot of them didn’t make it on the album though [laughs].

Any plans for the future?
The future’s wild, that’s for sure. [This year] I’m hoping to focus on touring. I like to go do shows live; it’s just a very different connection with the audience. It’s been fun doing a bunch of appearances like radio shows back in the States. I’ve gone to do a couple of [radio shows] with artistes like Natasha Bedingfield, Bruno Mars and even The Gin Blossoms.

Visit Reader's Digest Philippines for the full article.

It's nice to see you are trying to branch out with seafood. I love seafood, it's really yummy. You may not want to look at things with heads still attached though. Unless that doesn't bother you.

Makes you move eh? I'm betting you are keeping this under wraps aren't you? Man of mystery you are. It's probably safer that way too.

Ah, more songs that didnt make it to the album. *le sigh* There are probably a lot of those, huh? Wonder what happens to all these songs that "never make it to the album"... Probably absorbed by The Nothing.
I narrowly avoided The Nothing one time, I have photo evidence. We out ran it in a car.

Live shows are always cool. Especially with a band. Here's hoping you get to do more shows this year, or well shows this year. Since this was last year when the interview took place. I don't remember if the last one was this year or last year. Pretaped TV not included. My brain may well be made of swiss cheese. Or cake.

Craft Corner: V-Day cupcake toppers!

I'm a crafty person. I like crafts. I think they are fun.
It's always neat to see what kind of crafty things people can come up with. I'm a little late to the party on this, but hey, who's counting.

Annie and Bianca collaborated on some David related cupcake toppers for those interested.
You can find instructions and printables over at Bianca's BLOG.

My fav is the cupcake and squirrel one.
I mean look, it's a mini cupcake on a cupcake topper! I like the colors too. The squirrel is just too adorbs!

I also may or may not be slightly jealous of Bianca's extensive digital scrapbooking collection.
One day I will devise a plan to snag her hard drives, but don't tell her that. ;)

Aren't sisters lovley?

As lovely as sisters can be, they can be weird sometimes! Haha!

Singing in the airport!

HAHA! These ladies have the right idea! Four for you ladies!

Wonder what he sang? Leavin on a jet plaaannee.
Bet that's it. Or maybe Parachutes and Aiiiiiiirrrrrrplaaanneess.

This would make me happy. Ever so happy.
As it so happens, that is playing in my headphones right now. Coincidence? I think not.

Making a mark - Mormons on TV

This was on the cover and inside of the Mormon Times today. Apparently about Mormons on TV or something like that.

Thanks MomJulee for the twitpics!

He did it his way!

I bet that's what he was singing. He probably sings it to himself all the time. heh.

On another note, how does a 20 year old get Frank Sinatra songs stuck in their head? Well, aside from being a human jukebox, that is.

Like a trainwreck, you're on a mission.

David, please sing this one day. It must happen. Or else. There may be an accident with a tuna. Just sayin'.

Good morningsss!

It's Wednesday. That means it's humpday.

You laughed didn't you? DIDN'T YOU? Admit it.
It's not what you think. It's the middle of the week. The "hump" of the week.
Like, up the hill, down the hill. Now it's clear sailing to the weekend.

I don't know what I'm going to do with you guys. *shakes head*

Enjoy your day!

New vlog: Kids!

"Teach your children well." (good song) Just wanted to talk about kids and the fun spirits that they are. Wanted to just make it a little fun today haha. Let me know if you guys have any funny stories about kids. Also got to go to a wrestling match to see one of my friends which was cool. Hope I am getting better with keeping up with blogs so far.

Heh. David, when are you gonna have cute little baby Davids? lol

You don't have to be David Archuleta to be awesome!

David loves little kids. He thinks they are awesome!
I guess it depends on the kid, right? Haha.

Rising Star Outreach Pathway of Hope Dedication

David made a trip to India recently to visit and help out with Rising Star Outreach. They sent out a newsletter that included pictures of David and his mom, Lupe, at the Pathway of Hope dedication. I think its great that he was able to go do this and experience it.

But I think my favorite photo from the newsletter is this little guy below!

Would you be my Honeybell?

Honeybells. They are juicy. Very juicy.

I love Honeybell Kisses, the smallest variety of these oranges. Once you snack you don't go back!
They come with bibs and a juicer that you stick in them. Sometimes with little Honeybell candies, which are yummy too.

If you want one, you can't. You have to wait till next January. :P
You can reserve them now though, from Cushman's which is owned by Harry & David.

Speaking of David, I bet he would like these. Unless he doesnt like to get his hands dirty or sticky. Wear gloves.
See how I worked that in there?

Super Beach Bowl... what?

So glad you are enjoying the beach, watching the waves, probably with your shoes on. You shoebie, you.
Oh, and the the super bowl last night. Hope you enjoyed watching the BEP.

Since when do you watch sports? I kinda pegged you for a Hallmark Channel kinda of guy. Speaking of..

Tune in tomorrow, Feb 8th at 6pm, on the Hallmark Channel to catch a rebroadcast of Skate For The Heart.
Check your local listings.

Matt Clayton strikes again!

I'd love to see the rest of this photoshoot! Some of my favorite pictures of David are taken by Matt. Most important, he doesn't look 12. Haha!

Matt takes some really lovely pics. not just of David, but in general. Love his work!

Jlo likes her some Archie!

Cant say I blame her! Four for you Jlo, four for you!

Watch Jlo talking about Idol on the Rachael Ray Show. Mentions one of her favorite moments on the show at around 3:37 in the video.

I used to watch Rachael Ray back in the day. Well, as back in the day as the show goes. I wanted her kitchen. What lovely appliances.

Thanks to MjsBigBlog for the video!
