Hello and welcome to all Slovenian fans attending David Archuleta’s performance on Friday.
How big a deal is David in the States? Well, just take a look at this:
Yes, he is quite a big deal.
And since it’s David’s first time in your beautiful country, I thought I’d help you out and give you some tips on what goes on at a David show, along with translations for some VERY useful phrases.
#1) Make sure to shout this out at the top of your lungs every single time he pauses to regain his train of thought… or just anytime really:
Ljubim te, David! … which means “Bravo!”
(it actually means I LOVE YOU, DAVID!!!!!! mwahaha)
#2) When it’s a particularly dramatic moment, especially if David walks over to sit at the piano, scream out:
Poroči se z mano, David!!!! … which means WAY TO GO!
(it actually means MARRY ME, DAVID!!! 🙂 )
#3) For men with deep Slovenian voices only: If he sings any Christina Aguilera song, belt out:
Ti si lepa … which means “Alright!”
(it actually means “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, DUDE!!!!“)
#4) And at the end of the show, clap and shout:
Ena pesem! … which means “One more song!!!”
(it actually does mean “One more song!”)
#5) And Mr. Archuleta loves his food and is very sad he can’t be there in September for your World Festival of Roasted Potatoes (this is actually a thing over there) … so you will make him feel welcomed and part of the Slovenian gang if you toss a few roasted potatoes up on stage. Trust me, it’s a long-standing fan tradition.
Now you lucky Slovenian peeps have a blast at the show! Hopefully he’ll sing “Simpatij” … Crush.
So, who’s going? 🙂
And I’d know those hands and that white hoodie track jacket thingie anywhere. 🙂
And remember drummer Ben?
David rehearsing! Oh, please let there be Periscopes, videos… anything!!!!
More rehearsing! With singing! I bet some of those classical musicians have never heard of David and must’ve thought, “Who the heck is this kid in the cap?” mwahaha … 20 hours of travelling would not be easy on his voice but he sounds… how you say? Glorious? (sorry, couldn’t resist 🙂 )
Listen carefully and you’ll hear where David lives! But sorry, stalkers, he saw this and high-tailed it to Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, as one does.
Bwahahaha! Excellent guide for Slovakians attending the concert, and fans in the US who have decided to swim to Europe at the last minute.
Oldest daughter’s in-laws live in Graz, Austria, a 90-minute drive to the venue. Sadly, my awkward promotion for this to happen is falling flat. Should be a no-brainer, right? Besides, any country that has a World Festival of Roasted Potatoes has me as a friend.
Rereading your tips. Still laughing out loud. 😀 #concertculture
Love you advice to the Slovenian fans! Oh, I hope there are some that post videos, tweets and Instagram pictures. Maybe Kari or someone will periscope. David will probably get a new hat and post a picture of that. I would love to go there as the scenery looks fantastic. You know you’re an ODD fan when you remember potatoes being tossed on stage at at David concert thanks to the Snarky Archies.
Love this post, Tofan! Great tips for those Archies going for the concert!
Erm … but the pronunciation of those words might be a little ne-ne? (no no?) (difficult?) 😀
I did not just spit cookie crumbs all over my screen when I reached the line about potatoes. Can someone recommend a good screen cleaner? Um, it’s for a friend.
😅😅 They are set thanks to you, like a good neighbor! I was going but we just couldn’t find a decent Marriot 😉
Thanks for the birthday wishes…. It was a good day
The vids of the waterfalls!! Wow! Bucket list place for sure…
Glad David is having these experiences!
The bird has landed. Kari tweeted that they landed in Croatia. I am learning my geography with David’s travels. There is a flyer posted online that David will be singing Saturday for a charity in Belgrade.
Cool! thanks, Grammyj!
I found the FB page for the children’s charity and it looks like it raises money for equipment for preemie babies… acc. to Google translate:
Every day in Serbia in a legal battle which can not write heroic stories. The battle in which no medals. The battle in which the only reward life. It bore the smallest and youngest fighters the world has ever seen.
After more than 200 secured incubators which are settled almost all the needs of health institutions in Serbia, the time has come for a new mobilization of all the brave people and companies in a major offensive called the Battle for Maternity, during which he will collect funds for the purchase of equipment necessary for the provision of life support newborn babies in maternity wards across Serbia which lack.
We interrupt regular programming to wish a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LOVELY & AMAZING, REFNAF!!!!
Happy Birthday to you, my lovely friend! Have a beautiful day.
Happy birthday dear Nancy and many more joyous ones to come!
Happy Birthday wishes to you, Refnaf ~ I remember meeting you and Deb in Stroudsburg amongst the whirlwind of excitement ..FUN times! Have a wonderful Birthday celebration 🙂
Renaf! Had to stop by again to wish you a most wonderful birthday! 🎈❤🎈I remember meeting you for the 1st time in SLC in line for a certain book signing I believe☺? Then who can forget our awesome Motab breakfast..was sooo grateful to my neighbors-to-the-north 💟 I hope it is a lovely day for you!! Enjoy!
oh my you have certainly done it again! I made the mistake of sipping a soda when I logged on so when I got to Taterzen’s Mount Rushmore I laughed so hard I soaked my keyboard with it. Thanks for making my day! And a very Happy Birthday to Refnaf!
I know Eastern Europe is a place of great history and a deep love of music so I am sure they will very much appreciate David’s talent. And he does love to travel so hope he gets some time to just be a tourist. (And enjoy not being recognized, perhaps?) Apparently Justin Bieber made a statement that he won’t take pictures with fans any more, says it makes him feel like an animal at the zoo. Made me think of David, of course.
Love this, haha, wise words for the Slovenian fans for sure! Lots of laughs from this. Slovenia really is a beautiful place and that part of the world is fascinating. Haven’t travelled there but just from researching, it really is a place of great history and beauty. I’m sure David and Kari will have a very memorable time.
Happy Birthday Refnaf! Love the Happy Birthday sign!
OMG (and “G” doesn’t stand for “Gosh”….sorry political and religious correctness police 🙏.)
Can’t wait to hear the music. So exciting!
Happy Birthday Ref! 🎂🎉🍁🎶
he rolled his socks down… I am so proud *sniff*
I follow Kendra on Instagram, and she is there too. This National Park with the waterfalls was on her bucket list. It does look fabulous.
thanks for the heads up, Grammyj! found her! 🙂
I had never heard of this park but oh, my! It is so beautiful! Right off the plane, eh? I hope everyone gets enough rest. And by “everyone” I mean that guy with the hoodie over his cap.
Tina’s gifs are a gif-t to us all … see what I did there? 😉
And Taterzen, I keep coming back to
ROFL at your handiwork with Mount Archmore … hySTERical!!!! 😆 😆 😆
David mention – looks like he’s doing 3 events:
Must-check-out rhiminee post, and other stuffs, added to the end of the post above… go! 🙂
David does sound Glorious in that rehearsal clip, thank you! I am so surprised we are getting so many tidbits from this trip already. It reminds me of the military tour when David’s tour-mates were a gold mine of information. 🙂
Thanks for the birthday wishes…. It was a good day. So glad David had the time to hold a birthday sign for me!!
Seems Slovenia is a bucket list kind of place! Beautiful, awesome that David is having these experiences!
