A Masterpiece

By MT

When God created men
They were not all the same.
Each from a different palette
So many of them came

But every now and then
A special one is made,
Painted with touches of color
From the beauty that God gave.

From the dewy green of grass
He’s given him his eyes.
With the color of cherry blossoms
He painted lips to smile.

From the softly falling snow
He found the color for his teeth.
And for his skin, a special treat,
The dew and color of peach.

And from the blackness of the night
His locks of hair are hewn.
And then he gave him breath
So with golden voice he’d croon.

His heart was made with special care
From the garden of the rose.
In deepest red he fashioned it
With love and care and hope.

When giving him his inner light,
He reached into the sun.
He knew this one would shine so bright
He’d be known by everyone.

As he gazed upon this creature,
God knew he’d cast a spell.
He’d made this one a masterpiece.
He’d used his palette well.

    MT~ Many times I have looked at a picture of David and just marveled at each perfect feature as you have written. However, you have captured them all in such beautiful way. well done!

  2. jans11 said

    MT, all the words of your poem perfectly formed a picture of David in my mind. They are just perfect, just like David!!♥♥♥♥

    Love the collage, Djafan. David is so photogenic, great pictures.

    David looks tired in his valentine’s vlog. I know he’s having fun and doing so much for us, but I hope he’s getting enough sleep. He’ll have to catch up on his 17 hr flight back home, I guess.

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you have a “sweet” day!♥♥♥♥♥

  3. Annie318 said

    djafan~ thank you for the beautiful screen caps. You always do such a good job of making them. I know, it’s a hard job but somebody’s gotta do it so it might as well be you. haha!

  4. PattiNC said

    Beautiful MT…if I had come across that poem randomly on the Internet, with no picture with it, I would have totally envisioned David! You nailed it! :) (thx djafan for collage too,…he is a fine specimen of a man…lol)

  5. Heidijoy said

    MT ……So beautiful. what a wonderful description. Your talent and writing are breathtaking. Thank You so much. I’m saving this and savoring it along with pictures of David.

    …Love the attached pictures! Such beauty.

  6. Heidijoy said

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all the writers and posters on the Voice. Thank You all so much♥♥♥♥♥

  7. MT, What a well-written, beautiful poem describing a beautiful person through and through. Thank you for sharing it. Djafan and Naree the collage is the perfect illustration for the poem. Thank you, too! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.

  8. kaycee said

    How spoiled have we been this past month!? I literally can’t stay on top of all the wonderful things going on in David’s life! I marvel at his ability to juggle it all. And, so many beautiful, heart-felt comments here that express the emotions all wrapped up inside of me. Thanks to all for keeping this site a warm and welcoming place to hang my “David hat.”

    MT, beautiful poem!…David surely inspires the artist in each one of us! “He’d made this one a masterpiece.
    He’d used his palette well.”

    Djafan’s collage…welcome back forehead!…I’ve missed you!

  9. SandyBeaches said

    “You never know how long you are ever going to be able to do that”…spoken in part from the heart by David. The passing of such a magnificent singer as Whitney, has a significance to many musicians including David. I am guessing that he had received his group Valentine from FOD.

    A great many musicians have so much extra to contend with in their lives that we would never know about but sometimes you can see it in their eyes and feel it in their voices.

    MT, you certainly have a way with words that creates such lovely poems about David!

  10. poof said

    Loveliness up on top of this post, thanks both of you.
    I would also like to comment on more loveliness, the music video of Nandito Ako. (no longer with us, but lovely.) David’s music has become part of the background of my life, often times the forground, as well. I just need to say this finished, professionally done version of the song was ethereal, haunting and was a “what was that?” ,moment for me. I think I am so used to hearing him with screams and OMGs it was a shocker, but also the quality in David’s voice was unique. The first few notes, I was truly a bit confused,,,, until I settled down into the bliss that only David can create for me. Just wow and thank you David.
    Also thank you to all of you in the Philippines, who have worked so hard to make me feel I am along for the ride in David’s backpack. It has been an amazing gift to those of us that will miss him so while he is on his Mission.
    So this a.m.,,, I am full of thanks! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  11. davidstopsmyaging said

    MT, thank you for that beautiful poem. David sure does inspire, doesn’t he? Your poem was a pleasure to read this morning. And, the pictures djafan….I just know there is not a more beautiful person and soul on this planet.

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone…

  12. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I have taken David’s advice and told eveyone I love that I love them! So … I love you guys!! Thank you for everything you do!
    MT, beautiful poem and dja, love that collage! A special Valentine to sky, who I will always be grateful to for her kindness!!! xx

    MT,
    I bow down to the master of poetry. That is one magnificent poem. You have managed to describe David perfectly. Both David and your poem are masterpieces.
    Thank you for putting into beautiful, eloquent words the feeling I have been trying to capture for quite a while now. My feeble ramblings pale in comparison to this Masterpiece. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all of lovely people here at The Voice

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all you David people. I am so grateful to each and every one. Those who seek David are all lovely people who appreciate the finest, bestest things of life.

    Such a perfect poem, MT. And the pictures attest to the truthfulness of your endeavors. This is truly a place of beauty.

    Here we are in the feast of David, storing up as much as possible to prepare for the famine. We didn’t need Joseph in his dream coat to admonish the importance of the storing up. So many people doing so much to accomplish this.
    Thanks to all of you. So glad you are sharers.

    I can’t express how honored I felt to share the stage with @ogiealcasid and @reginevalcasid tonight. Thank you so much for having me!

  26. MT said

    Thanks for all your kind words on the poem. :) It started out about his beautiful coloring, but it just would not be complete without including the amazing beauty inside of him.

    I do believe that, like any work of art, David is a thing of beauty that we enjoy looking at from all perspectives, he makes us think, trying to figure out just what it is about him that makes him so special to us. But like any painting, it isn’t just one thing. It is the combination of MANY unique brush strokes that makes it so beautifully fascinating.

  27. MT said

    OH, And …

    ♥ Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!! ♥

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all The Voice family.

    WOW! I’m hoping for the English Nandito Ako! The composer is pushing for it :) And he follows his tweets and fan sites!

    Letter to David

    The composer of “Nandito Ako,” Aaron Paul del Rosario, sent an open letter to David Archuleta. Following are excerpts. Hear ye, hear ye Archie!

    “First of all, thank you! There are so many beautiful Filipino songs and for you to sing mine is such a blessing. When you finished as a finalist in ‘American Idol,’ I always dreamt that one day you’d sing something I wrote. Now that it’s actually happening, I’m not even there in the Philippines to celebrate the occasion.

    “I live in California so all I do is follow your tweets and fan sites to see how things are going. Oh, and of course, my publisher keeps me updated.

    “I do hope that you still get to record the English version, ‘Forever With You.’ I say ‘version’ because it’s not a literal translation. I tweaked it a little bit. I know your schedule is tight but my publishers are still giving it a push, so I have my fingers crossed.

    “Thanks, David, for making this songwriter’s dream come true and for being a part of the wonderful journey of my song ‘Nandito Ako.’ See you in two years!”

  31. ~David Archuleta ~ A Work Of Art – Inside & Out~ A Masterpiece indeed!
    Beautiful poem MT & your collage has captured the essence of David beautifully, DJAfan. Thank you both for sharing. What an incredible experience this continues to be for David..it just keeps unfolding day after day & it’s so great being witness to it as we have all the other chapters in his life for the past 4 years. What a blessed fanbase we are.

  32. joujou said

    MT, your post at 26………….LOVE everything you said. :D

  33. Dayzee said

    David told us he was not used to showing extreme emotion and that was something he had to push himself to do as an actor. Yet when he sings the emotion is very extreme.
    Listening to him sing with others I am always amazed at how much his voice affects me in comparison to any other singer.

  34. djafan said

    Billboard!

    Bench Launch

    Bench officially welcomes David Archuleta into their family of international celebrity endorsers this week.

    The campaign launch will be this Friday, February 17, at 5pm PHT at the Ayala TriNoma Mall in Quezon City, Philippines. David will be signing his new photos for the Philippines’ leading clothing and lifestyle brand.

    A billboard for Bench’s campaign with David will be put up in the next few days in Magallanes.

  35. joujou said

    Dayzee, totally agree!! Not to take away from any other singers, cuz they can sing well, but David is able to make us FEEL while he sings. It just so happens that he also possesses the most beautiful voice in the world, so it’s a double whammy! And everybody else just pales in comparison.

  36. djafan said

    MT,

    “I do believe that, like any work of art, David is a thing of beauty that we enjoy looking at from all perspectives, he makes us think, trying to figure out just what it is about him that makes him so special to us.

    Beautiful.

    I’m with the no one does it for me like “The Voice” camp. It doesn’t matter what he is singing. There is that something in his voice that must come directly from the heavens because even his speaking voice stops me cold.

    Another Nandito Ako vid from CherryMariano! Gosh I love the spazzing.

  37. lani said

    Dayzee, Joujou,

    Ditto… with other singers, I just HEAR them but with David,even if he’s just singing a line or two, acoustic,acapella, or with orchestra, in Latin, French, Spanish. Tagalog, English, it does not matter… I FEEL him every single time

    ShellyFOD posted a tribute video recently. Everything about this is beautiful.

    Here is a video I made with Eva Cassidy’s song You Take My Breath Away….because I know he takes all of our breaths away with his voice…beauty and inner spirit… We love you lots David!

    Oh my!!!! TEARS FLOWED….MT, this is a masterpiece…haven’t read any comments yet…off to do that now!!! Thank you so much for this…I am going to make a copy of this and put it by my calendar marking off the days for when he comes back to the “fold of his fans”:)

  42. Shawna said

    Just finished reading all the comments!!!! I LOVE IT HERE!!!! Oh,and by the way, Happy Valentines to all here at The Voice, our home away from home:)))))))

  43. tawna21 said

    Dayzee #33 –> “Listening to him sing with others I am always amazed at how much his voice affects me in comparison to any other singer.”
    I’ve marvelled, also, at how much David’s voice is so very different from anyone else’s. I can hear and feel his voice so distinctly when he is singing with others. His harmony is perfect, and his voice is so soft and tender, and yet so powerful. He just has what no one else does. No words can describe it. ♥♪♥♫

    JR/Naree/Lormis… it must be a really tough job to HAVE to video/photo. David so much. Thanks for being so willing to take on that task. ♥♥

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!

  44. kaycee said

    After watching the videos of the performance last night, can I just say…I am a pile of goo! What a beautiful heart-felt performance by all three artists, with such respect and admiration for each other. And the response of the crowd when David walked out just melted what was left of me all the more. I just love, love, love the way they love him there(I think it’s OK to use that many loves in one sentence on Valentine’s Day!)

    And Dayzee, I totally hear you: “Here we are in the feast of David, storing up as much as possible to prepare for the famine. We didn’t need Joseph in his dream coat to admonish the importance of the storing up. So many people doing so much to accomplish this.

  45. Dayzee said

    wow!! Shelly’s tribute video left me stunned! I cannot count the number of times David has left me with no breath. I hope to see that on TVU, and knowing Abrra, it is probably already there. I am not allowed to check during working hours. :(

    I know Shelly had no problem finding enough breath taking photos of David. The difficulty would be in discarding some. There is no filler art work, just beautiful David. It is like his appearances. We do not care about or even see the accoutrements, just David. Thanks to Shelly,

  46. goodkarmaseeker said

    MT, what a BEAUTIFUL poem! How perfect for Valentine’s day. Thank you for sharing your talent.

    Haven’t posted for awhile but I’ve been here, OHHHH, I’ve been here, soaking up all the beauty and amazingness of David and all of you. Just have to say I love him and I love all of you : ) Happy Valentine’s Day and share the love.

  47. Amy (in VA) said

    Thanks, y’all, for everything! I don’t comment much due to time limitations, but I so appreciate how so many are able to put into words or a video or a comment, so eloquently the things that most of us feel in some way, shape or form. Thanks for making me feel welcome when I come to read, even if I don’t comment!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to a group of peeps I feel a whole lotta love for! ♥

  48. Bebereader said

    MT,

    Your poem, describing the masterpiece that is David Archuleta is a perfect Valentine’s gift for the fans. We’re being showered with gifts lately but your poem goes straight to the heart. Thank you!

    PattiNC: “if I had come across that poem randomly on the Internet, with no picture with it, I would have totally envisioned David!” Yes yes and yes!

    Chills and goosebumps while listening to the trio sing Nandito Ako. If I didn’t know David, after seeing him in this performance my reaction would still be chills and goosebumps. David takes the song to new heights and brings it out of this stratosphere!

    Like dja said, he is so humble. In his tweet he thanked Ogie and Regina for having him but they seemed thrilled beyond all reason to have him on stage with them. Wish I could understand what they said about him in Tagalog at the end of the song after he left the stage.

    David owns Nandito Ako, hands down.

    I’m so moved at the amount of respect for David. The writer of NA is still pushing for David to sing the English version and he’s been a fan since AI!

    Kaycee#44: “And the response of the crowd when David walked out just melted what was left of me all the more. I just love, love, love the way they love him there…”

    Sometimes I think the rest of the world is living in an alternate universe. Why do some people see and hear the obvious while the others are blind and deaf to it? It boggles the mind.

    David, YOU are heaven-sent.

    I’m off to watch Shelley’s video…

    “Sometimes I think the rest of the world is living in an alternate universe. Why do some people see and hear the obvious while the others are blind and deaf to it? It boggles the mind.”
    Bebe, I just don’t get it at all.never will. I was curious when David made mention in a recent interview that he had been approached before (about acting) but didn’t ever feel comfortable or have interest at the time? something like that?.
    I occasionally wonder about that, since he said it!
    Perhaps, there were offers that came Davids way, that he chose not to do, or did not feel comfortable doing,here in the U.S.Its something we would never have known about, but its hard to believe if we see the IT David has, and the Filipino people see the IT , and David’s fans from all over the world see the IT then people that are schooled in the IT business d- -m well know!!

    All I can say is Thank You, to the Philippines,for opening up your hearts to David,celebrating his talents, and letting him KNOW how wonderful a person he is.You gave him the perfect vessel to sink his teeth into and grow, with by offering him the project of
    “Nandito Ako” ♥ so just thank you, thank you!

    I feel better now.:))

  50. skydancer1x said

    oh, and that video of Shelley’s ♥
    the combination of David alone on the screen and Eva’s hauntingly beautiful voice in that song…

    45.Dayzee, you said it perfectly.

  51. kaycee said

    Ok, MT…your awesome poem inspired the poetic child in me, haha! I work at an elementary school all day, so my Valentine ramblings have a bit more “elementary” flair! Valentine parties all day will do that to you! Hey, and I even stuck with the color theme (somewhat)! I shall title it…”A Valentine Ode to David”!

    Roses are red, violets are blue…what joy you inspire by just being you.
    Sunshine is yellow and storm clouds are gray…but your smile and your laugh brighten any dark day.
    Sunsets are orange and stars twinkle white…you lift us all up with your bright inner light.
    Emeralds are green, and diamonds just shine…when you sing us a song, everything feels just fine.

    And shifting gears a bit…

    Trail mix is crunchy and Thai food just rules…your charming good looks turn us all into fools!
    Nemo is fishy and sharpies are black…that strong auchgaze might just cause an attack!
    Oars can be scary and shorts are quite rare…but watch out for the scissors when it comes to your hair!
    Bunny suits are funny and one-armed hugs are the way…dear David we love you…Happy Valentine’s Day!

  52. bluesky said

    Kaycee.. I just love you! I especially love you for the last 4 lines. ^_^

  53. joujou said

    Haha, Kaycee that last poem is awesome! :D

  54. skydancer1x said

    51…. hahaha Kaycee! I love them both♥ but when you ‘shifted gear’ the last 4 lines, I almost fell out of my chair! LOL
    that was priceless. haha what talented poets we have in da’ house!! You and MT,♥ rockin’ the poetry.

  55. Bebereader said

    Woot Woot!
    Loving Kaycee’s poem!

    David tweets:

    “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”

  56. betsy said

    Love the poem, MT. It’s so lovely. You are a painter of words.

    Kaycee, lol funny. Sharpies are black. :) Talent all over the place. :)

    Also, did you guys not LOVE when Ogie turned to David, put his hands together and slightly bowed??!! I love this moment. Respect for David.
    I need to go watch that part again.
    This was a good Valentines Day, as they always are. ♥ My fave day. ♥
    Twenty years of wedded bliss. (mostly, lol) ♥

    Kaycee :) your ‘Elementary School’ poetry is awesome! Too, too, cute and witty!!

    David’s tweet… hits home for me. Have I mentioned lately how much I just love this young man because of his inner light that shines so brightly? Well, I do.

    At the Salt Lake MKOC show I sat between Jans11 with her camera and ShellyFOD with her camera. I was the photography idiot in that trio. Bless those who can work a camera and look at David at the same time.

    Kaycee…..your poem was such fun to read. Thanks for that!

  62. PattiNC said

    36 video….just wow. David really is in a league of his own…his voice just gives me chills even when he is singing with other good singers, his voice just soars. People flip out over Adele’s voice (who I love)…but seriously people in the states need to hear David live in a big way when he gets back from his mission. Hopefully by then nicki manaj and others who use distractions when they perform will be just a memory. That will be my prayer for the next 2 years!! :). And yes David owns NA…and soon 9 other songs…lol

  63. gladys said

    Ogie Alcasid has given his blessing to David. The small gesture of bowing to David, when he was singing his song, recognized that Nandito ako, now has another owner.
    We all know that when David sings songs of others, he is the absolute master.
    Ogie Alcasid is the first of a long list of original singers, who has realized that his song in the voice of David can reach the stratosphere and still rising.
    David never needed a crown to be king, he is our prince.
    Thanks to the people of the Philippines.

  64. PattiNC said

    Shelly’s tribute video is gorgeous…some one needs to send it to
    People magazine for their 25 most beautiful under 25….seriously.

    49. Sky, …. What you said. ♥ And David certainly has IT, lots of IT.

    51. Kaycee … “Oars can be scary and shorts are quite rare…but watch out for the scissors when it comes to your hair!”

    LOL Your poem is awesome!!! I love it!!

    And I sooo love the performance with Ogie and Regina. Betsy, they did show a wonderful respect for David and they sang absolutely beautifully together. What a talented trio!

    Dja,
    Thanks so much for the addition of that beautiful collage. Between those pics and his tweet, perfect examples of what I was talking about. Beautiful inside and out. ♥

    I don’t know how to bring this over…..go to FanScene and there is an updated account of David’s presscon that is going on right now. You can click onto some of the songs on “Forevermore” (this song is will be the 1st single and David shot the video for it last night). The songs are so beautiful. I can’t listen to any of these without sobbing….can only imagine what it will feel like, hearing David sing these songs for the 1st time! On this Valentine’s Day, we awoke, feeling an enormous joy, seeing David sing with Regine and Ogie….and now this special day ends with David’s love, continuing to flow to us. It doesn’t matter where we are, where we live…..David is with us all and we are the most blessed fans ever, not only because of his marvelous voice, but equally because of who he is and how he lives.

    Gladys, For someone who says she struggles with the English language, your last statement was spot-on and perfectly stated. Nice!
    MT and Kaycee, Your poetry is so good! You had me laughing and shedding a tear!
    Hope everyone at The Voice had a LOVE filled day!
    Thanks for being here.

    I listened to the songs that will be on his album and they will be “killers” when David sings them!! Oh, my!!!♥♥ Oh, David you are the best to do all this for us! But I want to be here in 2 yrs when you get back!!

  83. fenfan said

    #78 that looks like the live stream of the tv5 trade show that kari tweeted about. wonder if david has appeared yet.

    tv stations hold such trade shows regularly to publicize their program line-up for the coming months. guests are advertisers, program sponsors, other business partners and the press. excerpts from the new programs will be shown to interest advertisers in buying air-time or sponsoring the programs and so that reporters can write about the shows.

    stars from the station usually come out to mingle, be interviewed and some of them would perform. so maybe we’ll see david sing.

  84. SandyBeaches said

    Yes, perhaps more unusual things happen besides someone leaving at the beginning of a successful career for a two year hiatus and that is a 23 year old singer who has just won 6 Grammys going on hiatus for 5 years to work on a relationship. Two years seems shorter now for some reason.

    Wow!!! Yes, it is Adele!!!

  85. Guys, I re-uploaded my 45-123 vid of David singing w/ Regine & Ogie by overlaying Lorms’ audio :)

  86. Abrra said

    I caught some of the UStream around midnight EST. David was not on stage for the Nandito Ako promo. It lasted about 3 min. 3 cast members came out and spoke in Tagalog about the premier of the show. i think David was doing the OPM press con at that time.

    @OrangeMagTV @DavidArchie doing some local TV interviews. Will post his #Forevermore CD presscon video coverage tonight.

    From JR in comments at TDC

    “Bench Launch

    Bench officially welcomes David Archuleta into their family of international celebrity endorsers this week.

    The campaign launch will be this Friday, February 17, at 5pm PHT at the Ayala TriNoma Mall in Quezon City, Philippines. David will be signing his new photos for the Philippines’ leading clothing and lifestyle brand.

    A billboard for Bench’s campaign with David will be put up in the next few days in Magallanes.

    YES! BILLBOARD!”

    More from JR about CD availability!

    Forevermore Copies for International Fans

    Continuing my discussion with Ivory execs re availability of Forevermore to international fans, I got clarification about how they can be best delivered outside the Philippines.

    As initial discussions have been made and several communications exchanged among admins of fansites. Archuleta Philippines has taken the helm of this concerted project for a more streamlined cascading. So always watch out for AP announcements :)

    Ivory Music & Video is the exclusive licensee and distrbutor of Sony Music products (e.g. Forevermore) and from which Astroplus, Odyssey, CDWOW and other music/online stores get their inventory.

    Am so excited for this all-English OPM project, which David worked so hard for, given the limited time he has. The guy will do anything for his Archies, as you will hear from the presscon videos I will post later.

    Get ready guys. Am salivating over the track list. Forevermore? You Are My Song? DAID. Am teling you, I think guy plans to slay us so when we wake up, his 2-year hiatus is already over!

    For sure, only the best from The Archuletor.

    Thanks so much for that gorgeous video. What he does at 4:00-4:15 just takes my breath away. Wow!

    I can hardly believe all he has done in the last few weeks. It’s amazing what he has accomplished in such a short time. Mini-series, Album, MVs, press conferences, signings, performances, interviews, endorsements & photos shoots … just unbelievable!

  90. MunkFOD said

    Hello!

    I sent David a little gift today. I don’t know if he will see it. Hope he does. ….. was thinking about a five year old David….the family packing up a house to move from FL to UT … A video to keep him happy while the tedious job of packing transpires… he sits in front of the screen… he listens… he watches…his heart swells… the gift within is awakened… and the world will never be the same… Lea was only 17 and David was 5. They now meet.. tender mercies… tears… wow… not a coincidence.

    Even though I don’t post often.. love you guys! I am here lurking .. just so ya know! Have a wonderful day!

    I am not going to survive this mini-series–David gets slapped (at least twice), smacked with an oar, hit by a motorcycle. I hope this doesn’t make him decide that romance in real life life is too physically exhausting-or painful-LOL!

    Your poem is beautiful,MT! You folks are all so talented!

    Xaris!!! What a super preview!! I am not sure what is left for them to show us!? But there must be tons cause they are smart marketers!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. ♥

    David was absolutely wonderful in those interviews. I am so impressed. He seems to have matured years while he was there. And gotten even more handsome if that’s even possible. (See Exhibit A – #112.)

    A voice to die for, a wonderful heart, and as if that isn’t enough, he’s gorgeous. *sigh*

    And coming up, Nandito Ako starts Monday!!!

  123. djafan said

    I just finished watching the 8 presscon videos and my heart is exploding with such pride and admiration. So willing to share his thoughts and feelings on so many subjects. He looks so at peace with everything he’s been able to accomplish. So many times mentioning he’s leaving this for the fans and that he knows his fans will find a way to have what he’s leaving for us lol. It’s obvious to me that David is “owning us” now and recognizing he has us. That we will be here waiting for him. I don’t know how much more he’s planning to do when he gets back to the states but I’m am really curious :)

    Good thing I did because they just shut down JR’s youtube account…dang it.

    Abrra, Do you have the videos too?

  124. Abrra said

    Djafan
    I have the videos. Look at the picture in #115. Haha there they sit. JR has had this happen before.
    Posting that kind of content as unlisted is probably the way to go. You notice many have done that since ABC Productions has complained. I do not plan to put anything relating to Nandito Ako on my YouTube acct. They sacred me but good :)

    Read the help page thoroughly before you uninstall? It might make a difference in the library of videos on that program. Don’t want to lose them. Usually when a program stops working , its due to a file being corrupted. A fresh install should fix that.

    Are we basically hoping that TV5 puts out a DVD for NA? I can’t think they are going to let youtube vids happen.

    TRANSLATION OF TRAILER PROVIDED BY JASMINE CURTIES (adjusted some portions)

    3 mothers, 3 kids, woven lives. (Tatlong ina, tatlong anak, hinabing mga buhay)

    Cara(Giselle Tongi, VO)- When they took you away from me, my world fell apart. Everyday I thought about you and the day that I would find you, again. (Nung kinuha ka sa akin, nagunaw yung mundo ko. Araw araw kong inisip sana mahahanap kita ulit

    Steve(David Bianco, VO)- Your mom is dead.

    Billy(Alwyn Uytingco)- But now you know for sure, you can move on.

    Josh(David Archuleta)- I don’t know if I can.

    Margaret Posadas(Aiko Melendes)- You get out of my house. You flirt(Malandi ka).

    Margaret Posadas- Get your act together. I am Holly’s mother. You’re the mother of Anya Dionisio? So that’s why my house stank like a beerhouse when she set foot in it (Tumino ka ha. Ako ang nanay ni Holly. Ikaw ang nanay ni Anya Dionisio? Kaya pala nangamoy beerhouse ang bahay ko ng tumapak yung paa ng anak mo.)

    Teresa, Anya & Aladdin Dionisio(Gelli de Belen, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Byron Ortile)- Let’s! Volt! IN!

    Teresa Dionisio- Promise me that you will find a good job so we can show the people here that you are not going to be like this(referring to herself). (Ipangako mo sa akin, maghahanap ka ng magandang trabaho para maipamukha natin sa mga tao dito, hindi ka magiging ganito)

    Anya Dionisio- Family is all I have. Now, even that fall apart because of all of you. (Pamilya lang ang meron ako. Ngayon, pati yon masisira na ng dahil sa inyo)

    Because true happiness is hard to find. Nandito Ako, this coming Monday back to back with Valiente. Only on TV5. (Dahil ang tunay na kaligayahan ay mahirap matagpuan. Nandito Ako, ngayong Lunes back to back sa VALIENTE dito lang sa TV5)

    dja, ownership – huge step for him. :)
    I’ve been wondering about that too. How much time will he have left when he gets back to the states and what he will be able to do. *greedy mcfreedy*

    “Maybe” – imagining him singing those words (especially with my own little illusion that there has been a lost love.)

    Dang, I wanted to see those presscon videos. I can understand performances being taken down, but isn’t the whole idea of press conferences to get exposure, create buzz, hype. The more people that see if the better. I don’t get it.

    “It’s obvious to me that David is “owning us” now and recognizing he has us”
    I love the way you put that Dja♥ and I love the fact he is finally doing just that.

    Xaris,
    you made me laugh when you said”Lord help us”. haha! I was thinking the same thing.

    David acknowledging he is learning how to be more open, and not hold back,makes this experience for him absolutely life changing.He said he has learned things about himself that surprised him…. thrilled me to no end to hear that.
    David moves so fast, is so quick to learn! His recent personal growth is so obvious…someone here,( I forget) who said “can you grow 3 years in one month?”or something like that.(MT,or Dak?)
    With every new experience, he grows in leaps and bounds.eek! what will he do to us then, after his ‘hiatus’?? Gulp~! we are so dead.

    thanks all for keeping us updated.

    I can’t go another minute without thanking everyone who had a hand in bringing us all the wonderful videos-pictures-posts and every other little minute detail of David’s visit to the Philippines. From the greeting at the airport, when he arrived, it has been nonstop. I can’t begin to mention all the Filipino fans, who have shared so much with us. From the video takers—picture takers– to the dedicated fans who turned out for all his appearances—to all the people he worked with – a huge standing “O”!! I can’t imagine what a world of hurt, we over here, would have been in –if it were not for your sharing.

    And to our marvelous administration for all the hours and sleep loss you have so generously given to us. You are one FANtastic bunch of coconuts. And I am deeply grateful.
    When David’s book was due to come out and we got a sneak peek at the jacket—I said I didn’t care if there was nothing inside the book but squiggly pigs and stick men—I’d buy the book just for the cover. Well, I feel the same about the mini-series—we have been blessed with so much that has come about because of the filming—that seeing the finished product will be the cherry on top of a mile high sundae. It could just be David reading Shakespeare and I’d gobble it up.

    Now that I’m not two blocks behind everyone else, maybe I can post and be current.

    OH, and ya I’ve had the oxygen out several times , not to mention several 911 calls I’ve had to make–there is no mercy.

    “David learned how to wear his heart on his sleeve. “I just learned how to be more open,” he explained. “I learned how to not hold myself back.”

    Been thinking lately ( dangerous) about how those acting lessons helped David be more relaxed around girls and not be awkward, just be himself and relaxed. I think he also discovered that he CAN touch a girl and give two arm hugs and not be struck by a bolt of lightening from above. It is acceptable. ;)

  141. cq said

    Dakgal, you brought up a good point about David. I too, sometimes feel like his self imposed strict moral values has kept him very closed, of course, not when he is on stage singing. So glad that this acting gig has opened him up and he seems so much more comfortable in his own skin. Big fan of David always, but I love the new 21 year old adult David.

  142. djafan said

    Hello Dak!!! Glad you’re back cuz I love your perspective on things and you :)

    “I just learned how to be more open,” he explained. “I learned how to not hold myself back.”

    Cq, Hello there!

    “I love the new 21 year old adult David.”

    YES AND YES!!! :) :) :)

    Ok….Tonight David is doing tho Bench launch party. Twitter peeps saying he’s doing the catwalk…A while back I would’ve said no way! Now? Who knows haha. It’s at 5pm Manila time 1am my time (PT). Lorms is doing a livestream. What to do, what to do?

    Ha, ha! I guess that is a case of “Your Eyes Don’t Lie”?

    Also at that site is a short preview that shows Josh bleeding after being struck at the beach.

    What else???!!!!!!! (I think “My Dear Writer” has been having WAY too much fun.

  146. SandyBeaches said

    David’s values led him to where he was when we met him four years ago and David’s values are what have made him so very unique and special to so many worldwide. Why they chose so much family violence, carried out all the whacks, the slaps, the shoving, crying, blaming, discord and accusations, I will never know. He could have been portrayed as a hero, but then that would not have been such a sharp contrast and would not have been so alarming to the viewers which is what they must have wanted for him.

    I am not looking for explanations, to be corrected, as the premiere tells all and I can’t wait to have David in view again as David, especially where the time now is short. I am so pleased that SnowAngelz brought us back to his concerts, TY SA!

    I read the same about Adele, that she’s taking a five-year hiatus from her career to concentrate on her relationship. That news broke immediately after she received six Grammy Awards last week.

    Speaking of Grammys, Sunny Hilden tweeted that she bought David a ticket to this year’s Grammy Awards
    ceremony for his 21st birthday. Of course he couldn’t attend due to his trip to The Philippines.

    And SB#146,
    “Nandito Ako” miniseries is high drama, full of passion and emotion. I guess it’s just the nature of the species.

    I keep seeing the Forevermore presscon interviews in my head well after watching them. No question rattled David; he was full of poise and conviction.

    Whoa! Thanks Xaris for #147.
    This pic is larger and less hazy.
    But can we stand the larger size? ;)

  154. SandyBeaches said

    Oh Bebe, I know it is high drama full of whacking and slapping at least that is what is highlighted in the premiere. Some people are just not enjoying that kind of drama and that can be expected. I think I read a statement that the slap first put on David could be heard around the world by his fans. The very first scene reported was the scene on the stairs where David was slapped. You see it is so far from being David with the physical acts, that it becomes sensational.

    But that is one opinion and we all have our own like different religions, different political views.

    Yipes! wasn’t expecting to see that whoa!
    …looks like yet another lucky hairdresser somewhere, had a fun day, getting David ready for this shot…. looks like she spent some time making sure those little forehead wisps were juuusst right! (can’t say as I blame her.:))

    actually, must be good products…his hair looks awesome, and soft. he just has the best hair. Hawt hair,hawt guy! ( wish he was in my local mall.)

    Xaris,you have been cracking me up today! “Oh, did I forget to post a WARNING on that photo–tsk, tsk, tsk.”

    so what kind of vitamins are you on? you need to pass those babies around! LOL we still have David on the catwalk pics coming up! woo hoo!

    Bluesky, I think it’s Magnum! haha! I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who thought that. I ALMOST said something, but I thought everyone else would think I was crazy!

  160. bluesky said

    154: SandyBeaches

    Yeah.. um I have watched a few S. Korean movies with my son who went there and knows the language. The humor and drama are different. I quite enjoyed them after I got more used to the style. I don’t know how this will be for me with NA. Love the song to pieces. I am trusting DA that the story line as he says, is in the end about family values and closeness. I guess I will have to wait and see how it plays out for me.

    I posted earlier that I feel like a type of Rip Van Winkle who wakes up after 10 years (in this case) and find that DA has completed so many things in one month that I think I am in a time warp.

    The whole “Bench” thing felt fun with the clothes. Then the hair… well, is really to die for picture-wise. But now MyDearWriter tweets this?

    — “And how about DAVID ARCHULETA Bench Cologne… ‘My Perfect Kind of Scent’ “—–

    Merchandising DA is something that has been suggested many times on some of the sites over the years. I have seen suggestions about what kind of products ‘should be screaming’ to have his pic or endorsement.

    But now…. ? Urg. “My Perfect Kind of Scent”? I admit to cringing. Be careful what you wish for?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So, my dear DA: How did you decide all this? How are you going to be with it? Some one has seen an opportunity (that many fans thought was a slam dunk) and offered it to you and you have considered and taken it.

    On the one hand… I love that you are going to get more exposure. That your name and face will be more well known. I believe that will perhaps lead to more people listening to your music and perhaps opening doors for you in the future. I guess I feel like the mom who encourages the child to step out, to try new things. And then the child does and I want to say, “Wait!!! Are you sure that is what you want? Are you sure you know what you are doing? Are you sure you have thought this through thoroughly?”

    Somehow, DA… waiting (musical puns aside) is not in the timing right now. I bow to your own right to decide to try these things and deal with what happens. How ever many grey hairs it may add to my already ‘frosted flake’ appearance. I love looking at pictures of you. So… but… and… but… Well, anyway. It is your face after all. And a very lovely one. May it bring others to love you as we do, along with those qualities that make you shine more than the lights on any stage. And may these new endeavors bring you growth, experience, ultimate peace and joy.

    Be safe.

    (Oh… I see. The new scent? Merely a new and better packaged brand of smelling salts. Well, that makes sense.)

    Crazy is just another term for: “Yes, my teenage sons made me watch Zoolander with them 20,000 times”.
    And teenage sons plus crazy = love.

    And now he will – may – is rumored to be, doing a cat-walk? My sense of humor is going to have to survive all this, because I think the rest of me could well be in DA cryo-therapy.

  162. angelofdja said

    Bluesky, I like how your mind works!

    There has always been something about that face, just like that VOICE, one is often rendered speechless and weak in the knees when in direct contact with either. Now he wants to have his own scent? We’re all doomed…but soooo much fun gettin’ there!

    I got a reply from Astroplus!! I am posting to let you all see it :) Be sure to send then your email soon!!

    Hello! We’ll get back to you ASAP. We’re looking for another way for you to be able to purchase the album apart from sending payment through Western Union but do tell us if you can do WU too.

    Just to let you know, the album is USD11.00 and (ironically,) the shipping through regular mail to your location is double the amount – it’s USD21. It should take a week and a half to get to you.

    Thank you!

    I’m sorry, but i love all of it. David feeling free,,,, giving everything a try. There is no doubt in my mind, he would Not, will not and never will cross lines he was not comfortable with. So,,, yippee,,,, go be the RockStar,,,, you always have been. I love it.

    My e-mail to Astro was similar although I mentioned being in Canada and about paying with Visa or Paypal. I received an instant reply which is obviously generic as it is identical to Abrra’s. Guess they will follow up when they can give more details.

    Sure hope this is the answer to obtaining copies of what will no doubt be an outstanding album — another David treasure.

  171. Gayle122890 said

    David has been cramming 2 year’s worth of work into whatever time he has before he has to go. Doing it for fans, fun and profit (and I’m all for profit!).
    My thoughts have been that he’ll be gone for 2 years in which he won’t be able to generate a livelihood. So I’m good with whatever opportunity comes his way and he goes for it. The music part, of course is for us fans, and I love that. The miniseries was a chance to try something new-acting, and I’m glad he had a blast doing it. And as Poof said, “There is no doubt in my mind, he would Not, will not and never will cross lines he was not comfortable with. So,,, yippee,,,, go be the RockStar,,,, you always have been. I love it”. I do too, Poof!

  172. Gayle122890 said

    “livelihood”-Is that the right word?? LOL, I get confused some times. I think you guys know what I meant. :)

    Good night, dear David. <3

  173. sweetonda said

    I have to agree with Poof and Angelica, because I’m having the time of my life following everything happening with David.

    He’s kind of like superman…Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Well maybe not leap tall buildings, but what about that leap against one. :) Looks to me like he has become comfortable his own skin and is feeling great about all the positive growth he is experiencing. I couldn’t be more proud of him!

    Bring it all on!!! I can’t wait to see Nandito Ako and everything else he is leaving us. And may I just say I might need the paddles, so whoever had them last, could you pass them my way? This Bench and FIX shoot may just cause some real damage to my heart!

    JR, so sorry to hear about your account. I also want to thank you, Naree and Lorms for all you are doing to chronicle David’s trip for us. You are truly loved. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

    Abrra, your desktop looked scary to me. What happens if you run out of room? jk ;) Thanks for everything in your Candy Jar. Will we be getting the NA episodes maybe?
