REMINISCE THREAD...FOR WORD NERDS OLD AND NEW !! PLEASE COME IN

Recommended Posts

omg, Coach Frank!

I STILL want to know who "coach frank" was! I wish someone had tried that phone number to see what that number actually was. I suspect it could be Andrew. Or Andy or Neal. Someday we will solve the coach frank mystery!


I do want to know who Coach Frank is!!!! LOL

Well Daina and I were just talking about Security dave and how he would hold all of David's gifts on the AI tour Very Sad We didn't see him this year. So who knows where is now?

Ah, Big Dave. I miss him. Medium Dave should totally hire him to be on his security team. Unless Little Dave snatched him up.

I saw him once walking down Lex. He was with a girl or I would've said hi.

^Aww, I remember security Dave!!!

*Flashback to the AI tour last year*

Me: "Michael, will you do the sexy dance?"
MJ: "WHAT?!?!?!?"
Me: "Will You? Please?"
MJ: "Sweethaert, it's before five. I can't do the sexy dance before five"
Me: "But Michael..."
MJ: "I'll do it later, I swear. But there are more important things to talk about now."
Me: "What's more important than the sexy dance?"
MJ: *Shoves security Dave in front of me* "This is Dave. We can't call him David, cause there's already a David. Or two."
Me: "Hi, Dave. :]]"

He ended up doing the sexy dance later...btw.

And we just completely shrugged it off and kept on going...LMFAO!!! ROFLOL

I can't believe I missed the coach frank thread. I did go back and read it. Laughing hystericall

AI tour: Stacy & I were standing at the barrier. MJ walks by and signs our shirts. He looks at Stacy's shoulder, trying to see how he can sign without grazing her boob. Stacy says something like "do you want to sign my boob"? He starts laughing and they banter back and forth. MJ calls her a "naughty, naughty girl" as he is walking away. That was one of the best moments of the entire trip.

Ah, memories! There's a video of him calling me "nawghty, nawghty" in that awesome accent of his. He also said, "This is a family show. Maybe on my solo tour" before that. And kept turning back and giggling at me as he moved down the line. That's the story of my WN title! My original WN title, "Lofty WN" was also based on a naughty story of mine!

I almost went to see him perform this past Saturday but the plans didn't pan out. I would have asked him again to sign my boob if he remembered! ROFLOL

I'm glad you remembered more of what he said. I just couldn't.

Too bad you couldn't go see him and ask him again to sign your boob. I'm sure he would have remembered if you asked him again. It would have come back to him. LOL flag

And that compelled me to bring these back for the gift girl~for those not around during the AI days-Megan was the gift girl-collecting & organizing this for David for the Top 3 show from the Word Nerds- then we got the Signal & a flower on the guitar later that show. Heart

Oh God. The flower. When he put that on the guitar I cried. such a sweet gesture from him. That day was so fun. I remember I kept looking for updates from the delivery guy. What was his name? Anyway he was in touch with a couple of Word Nerds and he was giving us updates and we were waiting for the pictures. The FLOWER on the guitar though....that was priceless.

His name was Michael, poor, sweet Michael. When I first talked to him I knew he had no idea what he was getting himself in to. But he was more than accomodating and by the end of it all he was just as excited as we were. I think we may have turned him into a little bit of a "fanguy" lol

Anyone remember the interview where he mentioned the gifts? He talked about the flowers and then said something about the girlie calendars LOL flag Apparently Michael the delivery guy added some pin up calendars to the pile of gifts. David seemed so puzzled, it was hysterical.

I remember that like it was yesterday. I remember watching it and saying "huh ?" Then getting on the AI boards and reading posts with the same jist. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Apparently Michael felt David should have some girly calendars to go with his Jager !!

I'll tell you my story. Have you ever seen the Word Nerd dog tags? We decided as a group to send David a small gift to show our support. It was a set of 2 tags. The larger one said Rock on with love from the Word Nerds. The smaller one said Forever Our Idol. At least I think that's what they said lol. It was a loooong time ago. I can't even remember how we decided on the tags as a gift. I had them engraved and sent them to him at the Idol studio. It was a wee bit embarrassing to explain what I wanted engraved and why lol. Not to mention the odd looks from the post office lady when I shipped them.

It was so worth the minor embarrassment when he wore them for the first time during Neal Diamond week. I was so excited I might have squealed at my tv. He wore those tags for a long time. I often wonder if he put them away and saved them, or if they got lost in the chaos of his post Idol life.

I know there are photos floating around somewhere of the tags. But I can never seem to find them.

Thanks Tricia! The other larger tag was also a fan gift. IIRC it was sent to commemorate Analog Heart hitting #1 on Amazon. One side said Analog Heart and the other side had the date it hit #1.

When the flowers were sent for the top 3 show, a letter was sent along with the names of over 1500 word nerds from the AI forums that was printed out. Apparently David read the letter (or he was just naturally thoughtful) where I asked him to place a flower on his guitar. I remember having to fax that to Michael at the flower shop because it was about 15 pages!
I also remember from the AI forums when someone started posting and about half the fandom really thought it was David. I can't remember what screen name it was, but I just remember many fans going nuts thinking it was really David toying around with us! Does anyone remember the screen name??

I remember there was one time where someone pretended to be David, but then later they admitted it. I can't remember the screen name.

There was one time when I was convinced David had posted. It was after his win and when he was doing that week in NY for the press junket. Any way, I remember late one night someone posted a super hot pic of him. And Someone, (not sure if it was me or not) posted a comment like: does this man EVER take a bad picture?

Then someone else called ourlady, or something like that. (a new poster at the time) simply replied with a 'yes'.

Then a few minutes later ourlady said: trust me.

I was totaly convinced it was David. There were other posts by ourlady for a couple of nights and then later someone posted as _OLP_ or something like that. It only lasted a few days while he was in NY and then it stopped. Obviously I'm not sure if it was him or not. But at the time, it sure seemed like him.

So for the newer members here - when you have an hour or so of free time - you might want to read this thread.

This is what happened when a venue absolutely refused to allow cameras or videos on the Declaration Tour... when we were left to our own devices to entertain ourselves. Kidnapping, pornstaches, avi and title changes... it's a flipping hysterical read.

I missed most of it, but remember coming in the next morning before work, and heading to the show thread, and wondering WTF had happened at the show that we had 26 pages of posts overnight. Then I started reading... and started laughing so hard I was crying.

The best part was that Daina actually sent David a link to the thread on his myspace messages - and it got read. Now did he actually read the thread? We have no way of knowing for sure... but the next night the venue again was supposed to have a no camera rule... and oddly enough they backed off and allowed them. Wink

It's a fun read... everyone should check it out when they have time.

Giving him the flowers and the tags was wonderful! Thanks Megan, Barb and Sue for refreshing our memories about how did it all happen. It was soo touching when he used them and "showed" them to us. I think he must have the tags tucked away somewhere Heart

Thanks for posting the vid, Barbs! While I was reading I was thinking I'll try to find it Very Happy

I think there were two people we thought might be David posting on the AI boards: both lefty and CuffedbyaStar ring a bell. Who knows? It was fun to think it was him anyway, lol.

It was, Sandy!!! Loved those days following everything as people posted Very Happy When they updated the site, it was never the same for me. I couldn't follow the threads either!

Fortunately, by the time of the last performances I found an online channel to watch live (I would have died if I didn't!!!). The day David won the finale was my birthday Heart and I watched with my family. I remember jumping up and down, crying and laughing like a mad women when Ryan announced the winner and David started singing TOML. My family was ShockedShockedShocked

LOL Face
