  1. Today's (11/18) tweets via Twitter: 1) @thdavidcook: Wow. 1 year. Here's to a few more, fingers crossed. Thanks guys! 2) @thdavidcook: lofty idea, playing the whole record tonight. Worth it. Vocal rest tonight to get through the next few days, but worth it. Thx, Indiana! 3) @thdavidcook: OH... and you guys rule for the trending topic. So cool! Thank you! 4) @thdavidcook: everyone help trend #weluvandrewcook. Gotta give the man something to brag about....
  2. Good job getting David to #2 everyone. Well done. Let's get him back to #2 or even #1 now that the show is over. ETA: I hope Andrew kept watching too. We got him to #8! Not Bad!
  3. First of all, my comments were not directed at anyone in particular, I even said that before. It was just a general comment. Was it steeped in sarcasm? Absolutely! It was knee deep in sarcasm but believe it or not, it was meant in a smart ass, humorous way. When I first started writing my opinion, even I thought what I was saying was coming off as critical and tried to make a joke of it and instead, I've been made out to be some kind of villain. I suppose the sarcasm that been directed towards me like "David shits rainbows" and "It's like gumdrops and lollipops in there" IS okay though. As far as the music goes, I LOVE David's darker music and lyrics as well as the uplifting songs. Hell, most of my favorite music that David has done came from his Axium period, which was mostly all dark. But I'd like to think that I have enough layers as a person that I can appreciate the positive, inspirational music as well as the darker music and I'm not going to label the uplifting songs as cheesy just because it isn't dark and brooding. I think David also has enough layers to be able to write and perform songs that reflect all types of moods and feelings and I'm not going to automaticly label any one type as better or inadequate or cheesy because of the message of the song. One thing we can all agree with is that the exposure is great for David. ANYTHING that gets his name and voice out there in a positive way is a wonderful thing!
  4. I'm sorry, it wasn't directed at you specifically. You just happed to be the one I followed. It just blows my mind that on numerous occasions, I've heard people say how fantasic they think Creep is, not because of the incredible vocal perfomance David gave but becaused they liked all the F bombs, they thought that was so hot, yet he writes a song where he attempts to be inspirational and people are lining up to say how "cheesy" it is. Someone in this thread even said we need more songs like Creep. I just think it's kind of sad.
  5. That was really stupid of David to attempt to write an inspirational song. Doesn't he know, anything with a positive message is cheesy and insipid. If he had written a song ladened with F bombs, THAT would have been sheer brilliance! He should stick with things like Creep, where he can be foul mouthed and negative.
  6. What is the chance we can organize a #suckitcancer Twitter Trending party in honor of David and Lindsey Rose? And of course, if we can get it going, would someone be able to contact Charlie so he can show her and let her know that it's all for her? I think that would be cool and I would think it would really lift her spirits.
  7. Have I ever told you that I hate you, because I do. Really bad right now. :lol!: Just kidding, of course but I AM really jealous right now!! I was also wondering if, since it's the official song of the World Series, if Dave and the boys might show up in NY or Philly to perform it live. I heard something on ESPN the other night about it being an "official" song but I didn't hear the whole thing so I'm not sure if it's just for the Phillies or the Series as a whole. As was pointed out, he doesn't have anymore shows until Nov 3rd, so it COULD happen! And the Race for Hope - Philly is on Sun, so he COULD do both here! *crosses fingers* Yeah, I know, I'm dreaming. Oh yeah, and GO PHILLIES!!!!
  8. I LOVE hear that song on ESPN and I love that John Kruk loves our boy! He's always good to David. I really loved the song a lot. I just hope we get to hear a clean copy of it now that it's "out there". As much as I love hearing "The Phillies are going back to the World Series", I don't want to be hearing it over David singing! lol Thank you, ESPN for this fine gift!!!
  9. The coolest part of the hunt, I think, is that I went into areas of the forum I had never been to before. I usually just stick with David Discussion and the Declaration Tour sections. Due to traveling around, I found the "Unbuttoned" Pic thread, where I left I nice little treat.
  10. Funny the things you find while on a scavenger hunt. Namely this thread. I'm surprised this one hasn't made it into the "unbuttoned" page yet. Definitely worthy!
  11. I liked the tail end of the fight... Sadly, no response from David or Monty for that matter. I was hoping to see it go on a little longer. Those two made my night!
  12. Via Twitter about an hour ago... It's good to see those two smiling faces. Let's get #suckitcancer trending for Lindsey Rose!
  13. I did my part! I put in a request for Bar-Ba-Sol and Lie. Should I do the usual too? (Light On and CBTM) Since they'll likely get played anyway. Eh, I guess I better. Just getting the requsts will look good for him.
  14. This is really fun but addicting! Once you start searching for clues, you can't stop! Well done, ladies!
  15. I wasn't able to copy and paste the images into the PM. It just wasn't working for whatever reason, so when I finish, can I just write what the image was. Is that okay? I'll be pretty clear when writing what the item was so I HOPE it's okay.
  16. Those were my first thoughts too Chele! Totally agree! I have to agree with this too. Hard hat sexy? Eh, not so much but the fact that he gives so much of himself, even when he doesn't have to? Now THAT is hot! Braun is okay but brains and a big heart are what get me. And maybe he lost the necklace... If we're lucky. lol.
  17. Aw, thank you!!! ANY little bit, be it a buck or two, or in your case, a pound or two, adds to the big picture so I REALLY appreciate it! Thanks, Chickie!
  18. Hi! I was wondering if I could ask a favor from any willing Word Nerds. On Nov 1, 2009 I'm volunteering again for the Race For Hope, this time in Philadelphia. I'm kinda unofficially carrying the "Team Cook" torch for this one and I thought I'd put out a request for any support anyone would be able and/or willing to give. I know money is really tight for EVERONE right now. Heck, I can't even make a cash donation myself until my next unemployment check comes in, so ANY donation would be appreciated. Oh! And as with the Race for Hope - DC, donations can continue to be taken after the race date. Just go to http://www.braintumorcommunity.org/goto/Leann1015 to donate and a huge THANKI YOU to anyone who can contribute. Mods, please feel free to delete this if it's deemed inappropriate but I'm hoping it can stay here for a couple days anyway, since I know the main forum is where it will most likely be seen. Thanks!
  19. Which shot were you referring to? The one of him laughing when the donuts were delivered? The look of anticipation as he's about to devour it? Or the look of excitment and glee in his eyes as he chomps into it? Personally, I loved this shot of him.
  20. Daina, I thought I'd ask an opinion here since I don't know/doubt if Flickr will allow pics to be posted on the forums that are not from their site and I don't want to take up space there on pics that may not even qualify for the book. Regarding bonus coverage, I have some pics of the boys that are pretty good but were from when they showed up at the Virgin Megastore the night before the release show, not the show itself so I wasn't sure if something like these would count for the book. Yes? No? If it's a yes, I'll load them in Flickr once the new month starts. If no, well they're pretty pics that people here can enjoy. lol.
  21. Aw, look at that sweet little face. I hope she's just facing a bump in the road and nothing more serious. Hopefully all the positive thoughts and prayers will make a difference. I truly believe they can. Hang tight, little one.
  22. In this day and age when jobs are at such a premium, that's half a thought. And besides, LA sucks. lol But Andrew wants to try TV so good luck to him, when the time comes. In all honesty, Andrew was the one I assumed was leaving. He's graduating in a month and a half, so I thought he was making his announcement now, then leave in a few weeks. I was stunned when Kelly said it we he who is leaving. He's a great guy and I'm really going to miss him. Just so everyone knows, while the 3 questions with Beth is leaving with Kelly, Joel Roberts is going to continue the David Cook Obscure Song of the Day so keep checking in everyday at noon central, 1pm eastern and put those requests in with Joel. He's a great guy too!
  23. That sounds like it could be it or at least part of it. I was thinking maybe it could be base on percentage of sold out or close to sold out shows as well the searches since I can't imagine it could be based on actual number of tickets sold since the venues David has performed in are small, to at best, moderate in size, thus smaller audiences and it can't be based on money earned because of the smaller audiences plus, as previously stated, the very reasonable ticket prices. I'm curious about what goes into the rankings now too but what ever it may be... WAY TO GO, DAVE!
  24. Yeah, but I would have liked a second DCTR song in place of said duet... Oh well, I'm just going to be happy to see him on tv again so that's a BIG something! And yes, it will be GREAT exposure for him so as much as I'm bitching, I'm actually still very excited to see this special. Oh yeah, and I can't wait to see a beardless Dave. I miss seeing that purdy face of his. I'd die to see him totally clean shaven but I know that's likely a lot to ask for. And finally, it looks like the mystery as to whether he's filming with Carrie on Friday has been answered... Twitter quote: thedavidcook: Band played great and I didn't fall over. Operation underwood holiday special a success. Off to the airport
  25. I never understood how anyone who REALLY listened to GYOW could actually like it. As strong and powerful as David's voice is, she totally screamed OVER him though out the entire song instead of singing WITH him. It just annoys me everytime I hear that song so I have to admit, I'm kinda of disapointed that he has to do a duet with her again. And why is he still being forced to do more cover songs anyway? He has enough of his own material now that he could/SHOULD have been allowed to do. Another song from DCTR, along with a holiday song maybe would have been nice. I like his occasional covers during his concerts since it's cool to hear his spin on old classics but he should have been allowed to promote his OWN music on tv. Just my take but maybe I'm PMSing. Okay, TMI. LOL
