DAVID ARCHULETA

All Atwitter About David Archuleta

Posted by betsy on Friday, October 12, 2012

The other night I was going back through some old tweets. I came upon my entire livetweet of the Grand Rapids TOSOD show that I attended in early October, 2010. I didn’t realize I sent so many. I KNOW I have a twitter addiction, but this was ridiculous.

I know I already wrote a recap of this show a long time ago. But these are tweets that were written in the moment, most were written with David in front of me, singing and jumping and having a blast.

Right now, memories are what we have. So I thought I’d share mine.

The day started out cold and rainy. I couldn’t get out of working that Saturday. I DID leave work 2 hours early. Got home, changed, grabbed my camera, hopped in my car. Started backing out of the driveway and my car decided to die right there.

Fast forward to 2 hours later, I arrived in Grand Rapids driving my husband’s truck.  :)

I found the area and the soundcheck was starting.

These are the tweets I sent. I am leaving in all of my errors. I was standing in a crowd of 20 thousand people.

This was the beginning of TOSOD. And ALL of these people got into it. Man, woman, child. Didn’t matter.

RT @betsyjane25: David!

RT @betsyjane25: Singing uno dos tres

RT @betsyjane25: Fs

RT @betsyjane25: Str

RT @betsyjane25: He sounds so good guys! His voice just rang out over the city:)

RT @betsyjane25: Aww he didn’t want to take up all the time “i’m good”

RT @betsyjane25: I thought people would leave after soundcheck but they know better:)

RT @betsyjane25: I see a little blue sky peeking thru:)

RT @betsyjane25: There must be 80 million people here slight exaggeration:) but it’s insanely crowded

RT @betsyjane25: The sun is coming out as it goes down-cool:)

RT @betsyjane25: Omg thf screams for david

RT @betsyjane25: Ten million times louder

RT @betsyjane25: Ryan starr singing-i like

RT @betsyjane25: Ryan starr sounds like a young neil diamond rocker

RT @betsyjane25: Hot chellie in 10 minutes

RT @betsyjane25: Where is the moshpit hospitality?

RT @betsyjane25: Aww some sweet girl just switched places with me<3

RT @betsyjane25: Faith restored

RT @betsyjane25: Last song:)

RT @betsyjane25: Lead singer has his lyrics tattood across his chest-shirt strategically torn

RT @betsyjane25: I see mikd

RT @betsyjane25: Just a few:)

RT @betsyjane25: Aww ben drummer taking pics of the crowd:)

RT @betsyjane25: Chantin “daviid”

RT @betsyjane25: Moshpit texting

RT @betsyjane25: Band is back!

RT @betsyjane25: 20 thousand jumping

RT @betsyjane25: Str

RT @betsyjane25: Hes getting hot i bet the scarf comes off

@ZachLeipham: The guitar player in David archuleta’s band just ripped a sick pinch harmonic in ballad-ish song.

RT @betsyjane25: Hes making the girls cry next to me (this was MKOP)

RT @betsyjane25: Crush omg the screams

RT @betsyjane25: Omg they wont let him leavd

RT @betsyjane25: I have never in my life heard this so much “omg i love him”

RT @betsyjane25 Now I have to remember where I parked.

:) :) Glad you’re home safe’n’sound! RT @betsyjane25: Just got home:) i heard stomping the roses in my hea the whole drive home

RT @betsyjane25: Oh I forgot – David was talking about Natasha and sang part of her song. :) I love you I love you I love you

LOL RT @betsyjane25: #Latetweet #Ohwell #Missedtheboat #Everyoneprobablyknowsalready

RT @betsyjane25: Guys, the radio station taped the whole concert from the stage:)

RT @betsyjane25: With at least 2 cameras

@betsyjane25: I love that you Rt’d my tweets last night. Thanks :) *crawls back into fetal position*

    Betsy – Thanks for sharing your experience! What we will do for David! But it was fun, wasn’t it. You look back on these types of memories and they are the best. Its great to have your experience in twitter archive to remember.

  2. OMGoodness! I was smiling the whole time I was reading – esp the cra-zeh tweets! The thing is, how the heck do you tweet while in the moshpit???? That’s insane!

    Thanks BETSY for sharing your memories. It was like being there :)

  3. sunny said

    Thanks Betsy!!! Made me wish I was there! :)

  4. djafan said

    Betsy!!! I remember this concert like it was yesterday and I wasn’t even there! lol I’m with JR on how do you tweet while in a moshpit???

    Here’s David singing Natasha

    The chants for a David encore…I LOVE THIS!!!!

    The encore…Zero Gravity!

    Another view!!

    “Where is the moshpit hospitality?” hahahahahaha *DEADDDDD*

  6. betsy said

    Mlp – I love this memory, and to think I almost didn’t go. Well, I’m just glad I did.

    JR & Dja – How did I text? Not sure. There were quite a few people there. ;) I had never livetweeted a show before. I was texting friends AND tweeting at the same time. Glad I didn’t mix them up. :)
    Awww Sunny, I wish I’d gone with a friend! That would’ve been fun!

    I drove alone. I had a few friends there, but I didn’t want to cut in front of people to be up front. I just couldn’t do it.

    Tofan – I stole that line from Clueless. It has a line for every occasion.
    “Is that a nod to the crispy Seattle weather?”

    Dja – I just watched the Zero Gravity videos, hadn’t seen them in a long time. It makes me a little sad. Sooooo many people were loving it the music. His music. He wasn’t even the headliner.
    I wonder what would’ve been the outcome if this had happened in cities all over the country. Oh well, it didn’t, and I’m just grateful to have gone. ♥

    Red Alert! Red Alert!
    So there is a guy, Harry Shum, on Twitter and he was in Glee. Or is in Glee.
    Anyway, he just tweeted out a link to David’s video of SBL. He really likes it. I checked his followers, and he has many in the industry following him. Actors, etc.

    Harry Shum Jr ‏@iharryshum
    This is such a cool video! @jonmchu you are a genius. http://vevo.ly/fT6pfr

    Maybe this will give a little boost in sales?
    Anyway, cool find, Searay. :)

  8. djafan said

    Betsy, The coulda, woulda, shoulda :( But things happen for a reason. The chanting for him is incredible. I remember reading that thousands left in droves after his performance.

    Great tweet find…I’m on it!!!

    I’d say we locate that “radio station” that taped the entire show!

  11. skydancer1x said

    Betsy, you put a big ol’ smile on my face with your article and all your tweets, yes you did!!:)))
    rofl !with the moshpit texting, and “where is the moshpit hospitality?” bwaaahaha !!
    So glad you had access to your hubby’s truck to get there! (why is it that the strangest,”oh no that’s not happening” things happen, on our treks to see David perform? what is that? car picks that time to die? (HA! Like that would stop us).

    ah these videos, those crowds chanting( one of the best sounds to hear, ever♥)I like seeing a distant crowd view, wow so many people that night.
    Dja, wasn’t he the only one that night, to have an encore?

    people keep discovering Davids videos….great tweet,thanks Betsy♥♥♥

  12. jans11 said

    Betsy, what a great walk down memory lane!♥ Just wish all his fans could see him perform tomorrow night! Not fair!! lol Miss him so much!

    Off topic, but DJAfan, I never did hear anything about the cd I sent to you to go to someone in Argentina(I think that’s where it was going). Usually I hear back from the person when I donate a cd. Any info on this?

  13. angelofdja said

    Betsy, I remember every moment and can still hear the audience chanting for David! It was so fantastic to see all those people there jumping and screaming! There was one guy in front of us that was quite loud, but I didn’t let that spoil the fun!
    Djafan, I was one of the thousands that left after David. I tried my hand at video for the first time that day. Other than the “loud guy” at the beginning, I am glad I got this:

  14. Abrra said

    I am with JR “Thanks BETSY for sharing your memories. It was like being there ” ;)

    I think I was there with you for the sound check? I am magical, you know. haha Thanks for an exciting read. If you can’t be there, hanging on twitter is fun on a concert night.

    I am over in Unplugged adding a concert from Dallas. Drop in if you like :)

    Betsy,
    Thanks for taking us down memory lane with your own personal memories. I could feel your excitement and seeing it all through your eyes brought a big smile :D to my face!!

    Thanks so much for sharing with us. You are getting me all worked up thinking about 2014. (haha I am all atwitter.)

    I am filling the piggy bank for when he returns and will be happy to return the favor. That is, if my brian doesn’t shut down completely and I can form a coherent sentence. LOL (Can’t wait!)

  16. emmegirl14 said

    Betsy, how lucky were you to be at this concert, maybe the largest crowd he had performed in front of (excluding national anthems), and to hear them screaming for him like that! It’s impossible to see him live and not appreciate him. That STR is one of my all-time fav performances, ROCKSTAR! and what is it about his soundchecks – they just kinda pull me in in this weird way. They seem more personal, like a little peek at him vs the performer. Idk. Like I said, weird.

    Gonna get my Halloween card in the mail stat!

  17. bebereader said

    Betsy,

    It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since this concert. You texted with me during the show and I remember all these tweets. It’s been so long since we saw a live concert. Your tweets made it seem so real. Thank for digging them out of the Twitter Archives.

    Emmegirl,
    I know exactly what you mean about watching David’s soundchecks. It’s a behind the scenes glimpse that makes it so exciting.

    Here’s a link to Betsy’s original awesome recap, “One More Song”:

    Thanks, Betsy :) It’s so fun to go back in time and remember the fun times. Your tweets are hilarious!! Why do we become brain dead/brilliant at the same time when a David Archuleta concert is happening?! It seems like we just lose all of our thinking and reasoning ability when David is visible (or hear-able). But then, at the same time, we are the masters of figuring out where to be and how to get there–NOW! I can’t know. ;)

    So, last night when I commented that I was going to cruise around YT for a while. Yeah. Three and a half hours later (2:00 am) I finally stopped. Seems I decided that it would be a good time to get my MKOC and playlist downloaded to my computer in case it ever disappears from the internet. Next step, a flash drive backup. :) :)

    Wishing Gladys another safe travels and have fun greeting. I sure hope they allow some cameras at this event. #hopingforpicsofDavidArchuleta ♥

    Betsy :)

    Haha even with your tweet, I can visualize how crazeeyyyy it was, Where is the moshpit hospitality? lol haha and yeah how the heck do you tweet from the mishpit!!! love the chanting so much, they just loved him !! :)

    Thank you for this fun post, you really make me smile and sad at the same time !!! we will not see him in concert for at least 2 years!!!

    All the vids are fantastic David was on fiyahh :)

  20. Hope Gladys has a safe journey, praying there’ll be some recording of some performances or all haha dreaming high here, if he sing Angel, True Colors and Broken,SOWK from BEGIN I’ll be a very happy camper :) or might be dead haha!!

  21. collegemom said

    So happy for Gladys! This time I am going to make sure I pop in here early enough and often enough not to miss if Gladys “happens” to pop into unplugged whenever that may be – I really, really want to know (and I have no idea why!) how many people were at David’s event, what he sang, how his voice sounded and on and on. I am just so happy that he is sharing that voice since we all knows how hearing it makes us all feel and I want as many people as possible to have that experince!

  22. MT said

    Emmegirl,
    I totally agree about the soundchecks too. I’ve always loved watching them.

    Pocoelsy,
    I’m hoping, too. I really hope he sings Beautiful or SOWK or Broken and we get vids! *crossing fingers AND toes* But I’ll take anything we can get. :)

    Bebe … picspam :D

    Gladys must be in Chile!!! Can’t wait to hear from her.

  23. MT said

    Collegemom,
    Agree … I want to know all of that and more!

    I think Gladys said it will be around 11pm eastern time that she will probably be able to pop into chat, if she has a good connection. She is going to try.

  24. mlpb3 said

    MT – I’m hoping he’ll sing “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, too. So happy for Gladys! We can live vicariously through her haha! Martha

  25. Djafan said

    Living vicariously through Gladys, it’s all I could think about!!

    Gladys que disfrutes cada segundo. Aqui estaremos.

    Jans11, I apologize for not posting the thank yous yet. They were sent. I didn’t track who’s Cd went to who and most wanted to remain anonymous. I’ll get those up soon. Not tonight though, I’ll be unplugged hoping for a Gladys appearance :)

  26. MT said

    Martha,
    I’d also love to hear him sing Pride, but I doubt he’s gonna get that rockin’ hahaha

    Actually, I’ll take everything! or anything at all. :) Pics, vids, or just gladys tellilng us all about it and us living vicariously throught her.

    Hoping both Gladys and David have a great time!

    Dja,
    I’ll see you there because I’m gonna be sitting in unplugged hoping for a Gladys appearance, too.

  27. emmegirl14 said

    Just leafing through naree’s photos, thinking of Gladys.
    pgs 9&10, my favorties :)

  28. Some of us were on chat the other night right before Gladys went to bed or tried to sleep. She’d be in Chile by now, right? Aaaaahhh so happy & excited for her!

  29. mlpb3 said

    jackryan4da – The concert/devotional has been going on an hour now (its 8:00 pm. in Chile). Excited to hear what she has to say!

  35. I upload this vid a week ago and tweet @thevoice but I think it must have gotten lost in the sea of tweet!!! since I promised I’ll share it with you all so, here it is …hope you enjoy it and may be take sometime to answer the questions there hehe

  36. jackryan4da said

    Emmiegirl – Those eyes are real killers. When they look at you straight, I lose focus and stammer all the time – ALL THE TIME! And my voice turns into my 12yo girlish squeak and my speaking turns into this halting english – I sound dumb I wish I could audio out my voice, LOL

    This coming from a marketing person who is used talking to all sorts. Go figure!

  37. emmegirl14 said

    JR, lol! and that is exactly why I have not yet met him face to face.

    } { **DEAD**

    And the wait begins.

    JR that is beautiful.

    Thanks Martha for the time.

    Blue, See you there :)

  39. djafan said

    Poco we missed it. You did a great job. Love dancing David.

  40. Jackryan, aww hehe :) you have over 1 year to strengthen your mental strength before you look him straight in his eyes again!! when the time comes “stare him down” !!! let he taste his own medicine for once lol (I have a feeling he’ll definitely go to Philippines soon after he comes back :) )

    Poco hahahaha That cat at the end sure caught me by sursprise. But yeah, LOVE dancing David! :D

    JR,
    When i watched that video last night I didn’t get the music connection but just now listened closer and realized it’s a classical orchestra version of SBL and wow, awesome! Where did you ever find it? That would make a great song for a movie or for So You Think You Can Dance. And of course his face there is just gorgeous & the slogan is perfect. Nice job!

    336. JR LOLOL I have not met him yet … but I totally look forward to the chance to stutter and squeak. ;)

  43. jackryan4da said

    MT – I also dunno where I got it. I found it in my DA vault yesterday – old file. Checked the internet if it ever been uploaded – NADA. So I uploaded it.\

    A newly married commenter said if she found it earlier, she could have used it to their 1st dance during the wedding reception :)

  44. Thank you Dja, Abrra, Mt for your kind words :), I wonder if the concert in Chile is on right now and how our friend Gladys doing, happy for her and envy her at the same time…has anyone reminded her before she left that she has to “breath” lol..!!

  45. djafans said

    JR, you rock.

    Unplugged is buzzing.

  46. collegemom said

    I am lurking there but I can’t remember how I always signed so I will just stay lurking! Thanks for doing it! Can’t wait until Gladys returns & am loving the tweets from random people.

    “The times, they are a-changin’.”

    That is all I have to say about that. ^_^

    (post-chat ((with Gladys)) world comes swirling together in multi-colored sparks, brilliant shards of glancing light, and …. Al Jolson? *_*)

    (DA… you have inadvertently spilled the secret! (you ‘secret-spiller’ you!): missionaries often have a LOT of fun and can be very exuberant and full of life. And… well… like a whole bunch of young men learning to laugh, love, work and serve together. We did not know you would use your new friends and experiences to rub off a little shy and clear the way for a lot of shine. But we hoped. We are stocking shades. But nothing will prepare us, I fear.)

    Good morning!

    We had an overflow house in Unplugged last night. Gladys held everyone captive until the wee hours as she relived her experience seeing David in concert. It was so good to see so many from the fan base come out to hear about David. It was a pure love fest! Don’t forget that we are in Unplugged every Saturday night. All are welcome :)

    Photobucket

    Gladys will be doing a write up of her experiences. She needs some time to rest and get her thoughts together. I copied the chat text where Djafan translated from Spanish to English. Bebe and I will put up a post soon that describes the scene and what David sang. Hang in there folks :) More to come tomorrow.

    I missed chat ! I missed Gladys.My .power was out for hours.And the wind went after my poor leaves on my trees, and slapped them down on the driveway,and stuck them to the windows I went to bed, Cannot wait to hear all about THE concert, just have to catch up! missed everybody!

    That video pic of David and Somethin’ bout Love! Holy Mackerel, Andy! gahhh, I could look at that picture all day long and then some. Thanks JR!

    beautiful day today,cool nice for picking up downed foliage. ♫♪theres a rainbow always after the rainnnnn♫♪♪
    have a restful sunday.

  53. fenfan said

    I have been watching video of other singers singing the songs David sang in Chile. I really really wish some ninja archie took video of his performance.
    Can you just imagine David singing Al Jolson’s Rock-a-Bye Your Baby (with a Dixie melody)!!!! That’s a killer!!!
    Here’s Sam Harris singing that song. Is this what Gladys meant when she said David knelt at the end?

    And what about Eye of the Tiger. Random much?? LOL

  54. MT said

    Sky,
    Glad your power is back on but we missed you in chat last night! We were hoping your power would come back on in time. You will LOVE the recap. David is growing in Chile in so many ways. ;)

    I think I dreamt about chat all night, that is once I finally went to bed. It was very late. Hubby was waking up as I was going to bed. Yeah … I got THAT look. hahahahaha

    Gladys,
    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing!

  55. bluesky said

    Skydancer1x Glad you are safe and the storm is over! We missed you.

    (Maybe your area was just getting the “butterfly-effect” of DA singing “Eye of the tiger”?

  56. MT said

    Fen,
    I can’t figure out what song “Dixie” is. But If it’s “Al Jolson’s Rock-a-Bye Your Baby (with a Dixie melody)!!!! ” OH, MAN … I would pay good money for video of that!!

    He certainly has the chops to sing it. Hoping some ninja out there got something, anything!

    Can’t wait for Gladys’ recap! :D

  57. bluesky said

    Fenfan: Al Jolson went down on his knee most famously in the first full-length movie with sound “The Jazz Singer” in 1927. At the end of the movie he sings this song to his mother. He is Jewish in the story (as he was in real life) and has given up a career as a Cantor to sing jazz on broadway.

    Mission references (maybe….?): Missionaries love to have fun with each other. In two of the missions my sons went to the ‘new’ missionaries are called ‘sons’ and their longer-in-the-mission field companions are affectionately called ‘fathers’. The son never forgets the father who trained him and these experiences can lead to friendships that last for many years. Also, in some missions the Elders refer to ‘old’ missionaries, those who are close to going home, as “dying”. (!!) Really, it is just their humor! Well, we have all seen the videos of anxious mothers and families waiting at the airport for the first glimpse of their returning sons. And we can relate in many ways.

    But for the returning elders it is a bitter-sweet time, just like leaving home was tow years before. And they do not miss a chance to rib each other about it (just as you would in a close family).

    So my “take” on the Al Jolson song is this: I understood Gladys to say that DA sang the Al Jolson song to the ‘older’ or more ‘senior’ of the Elders. That could mean those that were close to going home. If that is the case, I think the song he sang was “My Mammy”, complete with a full complement of “ham”. The original video is below. And the lyrics.

    Too funny, if that is what he did!

    My Mammy sung by Al Jolson

    Songwriters: SAM LEWIS, JOE YOUNG, WALTER DONALDSON

    Everything is lovely
    When you start to roam;
    The birds are singin’, the day that you stray,
    But later, when you are further away,
    Things won’t seem so lovely
    When you’re all alone;
    Here’s what you’ll keep saying
    When you’re far from home:
    Mammy,
    Mammy,
    The sun shines east, the sun shines west,
    I know where the sun shines best–
    Mammy,
    My little mammy,
    My heartstrings are tangled around Alabammy.
    I’m comin’,
    Sorry that I made you wait.
    I’m comin’,
    Hope and trust that I’m not late, oh oh oh
    Mammy,
    My little Mammy,
    I’d walk a million miles
    For one of your smiles,
    My Mammy! Oh oh oh…
    (SPOKEN) Mammy…
    My little Mammy.
    The sun shines east– the sun shines west–
    I know where– the sun shines best!
    It’s on my Mammy I’m talkin’ about, nobody else’s!
    (SUNG) My little Mammy,
    My heartstrings are tangled around Alabammy.
    (SPOKEN) Mammy– Mammy, I’m comin’–
    I’m so sorry that I made you wait!
    Mammy– Mammy, I’m comin’!
    Oh God, I hope I’m not late!
    Look at me, Mammy! Don’t you know me?
    I’m your little baby!
    (SUNG) I’d walk a million miles
    For one of your smiles,
    My Mammy!

    bluesky, thanks for the scoop! Omgosh, if that was it, hilarious!

    Betsy:

    I loved your ‘twitter’ recap. I could really sense the fun, excitement and chaos. I haven’t a clue how you were able to tweet at all during the uproar. Amazing. Thank you so much for sharing that and bring those memories so completely to life for us all.

  62. MT said

    Betsy,
    How appropriate that all of this comes under the title of your article “All Atwitter About David Archuleta” cuz we certainly are!
    :) <<< so excited at what I heard last night! :( <<< no video
    :D <<< *still spazzing*

  63. djafan said

    Still spazzing and my brain has not stopped tingling lol

    Thanks to those who helped last night.

    Martha for the bringing the tweets.
    JR for clearing up the “Rocky” song lol. It just did not compute, “Eye of The Tiger”? What the random??
    Abrra, for slowing things down for me.
    Bebe, for interpreting my spazzing moments.
    And all that came, regulars and first timers for your participation. It was a blast, unbelievable.

    Janel cleared up the Hero song (David’s Aunt confirmed), not by Enrique or Cristina but Hero in Spanish by Mariah Carey.

    Gladys, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I believe things happen for a reason. The entire chain of events, the permission for you to attend and be a witness to Elder Archuleta was meant to be…IMHO. I could hear a collective sigh in the Archufandom. David is fine, actually more than fine :)

    Djafan – Wow, what an exciting evening! I had so much fun and everyone was so nice and welcoming! And to be there as we all together learned what our David is capable of and doing on his time away. What an exciting time for him; I am so happy for him!

    Many thanks to you and Abrra! – These things aren’t easy and I appreciate all that you do.

    I don’t know if its been mentioned, but didn’t Gladys say he sang Heaven? Could it have been this one by the Los Lonely Boys?

    Everything happened so fast I’m not really sure.

    And of course a big THANK YOU to Gladys for doing this for all of us. What a blessing she is. Muchas Gracias, Gladys! Martha

    66. — Ray, amen. Nobody could have said it better. It was a remarkable event. It was a joy to realize how very happy David is with his decision. God is indeed blessing him now and as He has always done. We are so fortunate to be able to have it all unfold before us.

    Just want to say how much fun last night was! Thank you Gladys and thank you David Archuleta! This guy never ceases to amaze me…ever! How does he keep getting better and better?♥ He showed again how a person can respect his spiritual being and still have a blast!

    #31 JR.. that video is awesome! Another way of showing the genious side of David! David, not only can you sing anything, you can write anything!

    Ray, I totally agree with you….witnessing God’s crafting and molding of the greatest entertainer and musician of all time! Love it! So glad I was able to get in with it being “sold out”!

    And thank you, Abrra, Angelica, DJAfan and all the others that work so hard on here to keep the gears oiled and running! You guys are awesome, I love you all!♥

    Ray – you’re right – he will become an all-around multi-faceted entertainer, even using this time on his mission to learn while reaching out to others. Just wish we could witness…. Martha

    Ray, Amen to that! David Archuleta=greatest entertainer/musician of all time!

    Knowing that “one of us” actually saw and heard David was a major relief for me. I NEEDED to know he was all good. Sounds like he is even better than good! So dang happy for that! :-)

    I was excited to be in chat last night with so many others that were hanging on every word Gladys spoke! Thanks so very much to Gladys, Djafan, Abrra, Angelica and every one else who commented and kept me glued to my seat!
    Can’t wait for what’s next!

    Thanks for all your nice comments, guys. :)
    Next David show I attend (THE NEXT ONE HE DOES IN THE US) I will try to tweet, and do a better job. This was my first attempt.

    What fun in chat last night. I kept wanting to jump in with major screams and keysmashes, but held off. Barely.

    Wasn’t it fun to see people from all over the world there? I loved that. ♥
    Just think about that guys. We have friends all over the dang world. It’s the coolest ever. :) What a family of fans. ♥
    Hope our girl Gladys got some well needed food and rest.

    Off topic but I just have tell you guys. I went to a movie this afternoon but before it came on David started to sing Broken. It only went on for a few seconds but it was such a thrill! Ok, carry on!
