AFD’s Live Blog
This event will forever be known as the day AFD made her family fly home a day early from Hawaii so she could do some Archuleta’ing. This was during my first stint as FanScene manager and I couldn’t let this one pass me by! Southern Californians (and the many who came in from out of state) were in for a treat.

Jerry (Jwipe) was sitting right in front of us filming – so I’ll show a few of his tubes ..

FanScene’s Ally (Alicia Loh) Meets David
People often say that David Archuleta has the best fans in the world — well here is a story that tells you why that is so true! Fans reaching out across the ocean to bring a young girl’s dream to come true. This is a story that will make you laugh and make you cry and love David even more! What, you don’t think that is possible? Trust me, have I ever let you down — Yes, you will love David Archuleta even more!!!!
Thanks to Grace of Team Archie for bringing this to our attention and to all the Team Archie and Loving Archie Forum members who made this happen:
Team Archie and Loving Archie are happy to have helped fulfill the dream of a special fan of David, Alicia—a 12 year old girl from Malaysia. Alicia is an active and well loved member at Loving Archie. Alicia is battling Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), which she has had since she was a baby. Because of her SMA, she can’t walk due to weakened muscles, and she uses a wheelchair. She developed scoliosis when she was 9, which was caused by the SMA.
Alicia was supposed to meet David when he visited Malaysia earlier this year. But, through a cruel twist of fate, her spinal surgery in the US was scheduled at the same time. Her surgery in April 2009 was a success, and her recovery has been phenomenal.
Because she missed her chance to see David in Malaysia, both Team Archie and LAF made it their mission to make sure Alicia would get to see David during her recovery here in the states. Alicia was not only able to watch David sing live in Del Mar on June 20, 2009, she was also able to meet him in person! We are incredibly thankful to everybody who got involved in making her dream come true!

Ally did a little recap a year later and finally posted some video she been sitting on for a year!
Her is part of her post and videos:
I met David Archuleta at Del Mar – the first stop of the summer tour ’09. This amazing meet was planned by some really awesome people! Not all that long ago, I poked around iPhoto, and found a little video of this day. So after a whole lot of debating with myself, I decided to post the video up to celebrate a whole year!
Some Special BTS Photos
The family of David Archuleta sent Archuleta Fan Scene photos from the Del Mar concert. David had the support of his mother Lupe, sisters Claudia, Amber, and Jazzy up on the stage with him. Lupes’s sister Martha and her husband – and David’s cousins were there too.
Oh, — and let’s not forget the ubiquitous Jennette McCurdy was also in attendance.
It was fun to see their heads bopping up and down from behind the equipment boxes while they were “jumping” to Zero Gravity!
They are good jumpers – must run in the family.

One of the original FanScene Geek Posts: Confirmed, Humans Glow!
This was inspirted by some of the photos I took of David at the Del Mar concert where he, well he just glowed!
Strange! Humans Glow in Visible Light
DAVID ARCHULETA GLOWING IN DEL MAR
Theliterally glows, emitting a in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day, scientists now reveal.
Past research has shown that the body emits visible light, 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. In fact, virtually all living creatures emit very weak light, which is thought to be a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals.
