LOL! I love celebrating David's great milestones Smile I'll never be able to express just how much he means to me for the simple fact that I've made so many new friends through him and his music. Priceless, I say... priceless.

I still have the 2 nite finale on DVD and watch it often. Such a special time. Andrew at the end mouthing "That's my brother!" still gets me! So happy that I fell down this rabbit hole with all of you guys! Such great memories over the past 2 years! Such great friends made, such great music, such great performances, and such special, crazy, sweet, times shared with all of you guys! *runs to watch tewer videos and look at "On The Road With David Cook" book* Group Hug2

Awwww Awww Love Two years already! It seems like yesterday as it is so clear in my mind, not only because I've watch the videos like... a million time and more, lol, but because I vividly remember "the moment"!

Happy anniversary to David, forever my Idol and to all of us and all those who made his win possible! And thanks David for your music, the wonderful friendships and the awesome experiences we all lived because you brought us together. The times we've laughed, cried, went crazy, shone with pride, traveled the globe, stood in line at insane hours waiting for the album release or to get into a show, or stayed up until the wee hours waiting for spoilers, pics and videos. So many feelings and moments we've shared.

I remember my DVR stopping recording and freezing the screen with the message "Your scheduled program has now finished recording" right after Ryan said, "And the winner is David..."

By the time I found the remote and hit the "go live" button, I saw Archie and David hugging... and still had no clue who had won. It wasn't until Archie started walking offstage that I could start screaming. It's funny now, but at the time I was massively pissed. LOL Face

I'm so glad that America got it right. And I'm so glad that I came here and found all of you. Group Hug2

It has been a short two years. I remember sitting there in the old house on our old couch with the recliner footrest up when they announced him as the winner. I was forced to celebrate quieter than I wanted to so I didn't scare the hubby.

Life certainly would be less fun and happy without Dave and all of you.

Magic Rainbow Two amazing years!! Thanks to David for bringing us all together! Thanks for the music and the memories!

This was posted by Minstrel at DCO! I'm Not Worthy!

Quote :
Minstrel's parody for today:


You’re Still Standing: A parody commemorating the second anniversary of a momentous event, by the irrepressible minstrel

With apologies to Cook, Dennis and Maida

(To be sung with anthemic vigor.)

As the sun goes down on Hollywood
Reminds us of how tall you stood
Just two short years ago
TWIK inspired us with every note
It fired us to vote and vote
And we just need to let you know
And we just need to let you know

We’re not gonna run off
Run off from your tribe
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
You’re still on the right track
You teach us to give back
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
You’re still standing

The music world’s confusing; we don’t care
We trust your talent. We declare
It all will work out right
So we affirm tonight

We’re not gonna defect
Loyalty’s unchecked
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
You sing, and we’re sky high
We know that you’ll fly high
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
We believe that you’ll deliver
And you’ll never let us down
We have learned that you’re a giver
Who transcends the shiny TV crown

You’re not gonna come down
Down off of those clouds
All these idols come and go
So go write some great tunes
(A single for this June?)
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
Not gonna come down
Not gonna come down
You’re still standing
All these idols come and go
You’re still standing
All these idols come and go….

lol

I don't handle suspense very well. Even in scary/suspenseful movies I will close my eyes and plug my ears. So when Ryan was getting ready to announce the winner I couldn't handle it. So I muted my TV and covered my eyes and peeked thru my fingers ever few seconds. The way I knew he won was when I saw Beth's reaction through my fingers. Then I unmuted it and my phone started ringing off the hook cause my Sisters called (in the West) to find out who won and friends started calling and I was still trying to watch the show and absorb that he had won. I was a basket case. Such great memory.

Love to read all the stories about THE MOMENT!!! Something that never happened to me and I'm sure will never happen again! Soooo special, I'll remember what I felt when he won for the rest of my life! And as it was on my birthday, it will be forever my secret celebration on the day Awww Love

At the time, they aired AI here 5 days after they did in the US. I was getting desperate to get a hold of a live streaming site which I did, I think, during top 4/5. So there I was, all prepped up in front of my computer (having informed family and friends I wouldn't be available that night, lol) and praying that my internet connection wouldn't fail! When Ryan said "David....... Cook", I kinda sat there for a split second, staring blankly at the screen, as I tried to absorb what I had just heard and what I was seeing. Then I began jumping up and down, crying and laughing at the same time. Sat for a moment to watch and started all over again Excited Hubby and my girls came to congratulate me for David's win! Though they were not as nearly invested as I was, they knew how important it was for me and how we had created the "Rock the Vote" site and everything. After that, we got together at the AI boards and here to celebrate. Hours and even days after that there were times when I just couldn't believe we had made it! We "rocked the vote" so hard that David had won!

And two years after that, I'm still here, ever so proud of our Idol and this place that has been a second home for me Awww Love

I'm a little late to this party, but HAPPY TWO YEARS, everybody!!! It's been one hell of a ride, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Awww Love

I attribute my discovery of David to 24. I never ever ever watch TV except for 24. So had I never started watching it, then the year of the Writer's Strike when 24 wasn't on, I wouldn't have turned to American Idol "just for shits and giggles." Oh sure, I might have discovered David on the radio later on, but then I wouldn't have all those memories of Season 7, staying up on AI.com until the middle of the night after he won, moving to the Word Nerd Home, and following the tour all summer long. I will never forget some of these moments. They really helped to define that year for me.

I still love and miss Season 7 something fierce, and I know there will never be another finale like that ever again on television.

You know what I loved (well, one of the many things I love and loved ) about David? Was how even in the greatest moment of his life, he made it seem like it wasn't all about HIM. He always praised, looked after, and respected the feelings of others. And it looks so instinctual for him. Virtually ever other contestant I have ever seen on AI revels in their "safety", their victory. But David was always concerned about the next person's feelings, and after taking a breath immediately applauded Archie for his achievements. For a long time. I think those reactions of others is natural... but at the same time it just highlights how special our David truly is. He is!

Thanks for bringing this over, Daina.

It's a day late, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADE!!

The Wave


It's so fun reading everyone's memories of that epic moment! I was convinced Archie was going to be crowned. I had dial up internet at the time, so couldn't get on most of the boards. I had no idea there was such an organized movement. Didn't discover that until the fall when I finally broke down and got DSL! I was watching the finale wishing DC would win, but knowing that Archie was going to win. When Ryan said "And the winner is... David....." I said Archuleta. Ryan quickly said Cook just after me! I screamed! Loud! lol! I jumped up and started jumping up and down, still screaming. My dog and cat went and hid! They kinda avoided me for the rest of that nite! lol When it was obvious that David was losing it, my little celebration stopped, I became just as overwhelmed as David was. It just hit me that he had actually won! Too much to process!! I'll never forget that nite!

I think this photo started my two year obsession with David's jeans, lol. Wow, two years, seems like yesterday that I was reliving my teen years frantically calling to vote for David! Just the other day I listened to my CD of all the AI recordings and got a little nostalgic - remember when that was all the current music we had?? Well, David has aged like a fine wine - his looks, his persona, his voice, his charity, the whole package. (I, of course, have not aged one day '8) Here's to many more great anniversaries! Awww Love

2 Years already! What an amazing ride!! I stil remember the moment. I jumped up and down, woohooing and all that, just like my favorite team won the World Series. Such great memoires.

Sometimes I wonder how different my life would be had I not decided to watch Idol that year and go check out the AI site and join the David forum, then move over here...and, well...the rest is history! Very Happy
