David Cook On Location With Extreme Makeover

David Cook and Ty Pennington on site for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

David Cook spent the day in Indiana Sunday working with Ty Pennington and his crew re-building a house for the Cronan-Brown family for an upcoming episode of the ABC TV show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

On Saturday, a guitar David donated to a fundraiser for the family was auctioned off for $1150. Check out the video of   David at the auction, after the jump. Check out photos of David on the worksite HERE.

  1. @thedavidcook: Leavin’ on a jet plane, but I know when I’ll be back again…
    I wonder what this means. He left today and but he’s probably going back there tomorrow for the reveal? And where did he go today?
    And why do I want to know where he’s going anyway?

    That’s a cute picture with Ty.
    Trina is going to like to see it in the front page. lol

  2. I hope DC made friends with Xzibit cuz that idea just cracks me up. I was also confused by DC’s tweet early this morning about leaving on a jet plane.

    The “move that bus” unveiling is tomorrow, so I hope wherever he’s headed today, he’s back for that, to meet the family, etc.

    DC’s hard hat site pics are adorkable and hilarious. Good to see it looks like he had a great time… standing around and gesturing, I guess? Heh. Well, he’s in a t-shirt while other have jackets, so maybe he’s working up a sweat doing something helpful.

  3. Yep, still singing Peter, Paul & Mary. Good thing I love that song :)

    He left today and but he’s probably going back there tomorrow for the reveal? And where did he go today?
    And why do I want to know where he’s going anyway?

    LOL, leome, I was thinking… where in the world is David Cook? And why the hell am I wondering… where in the world is David Cook? Hee!

  4. Aw, such a cutie pie! :-) Nice way to brighten a Monday, mj. Thanks~

  5. I think he might be going to greet the family in Disneyland. Celebs have done that before on there. His tweet last night sort of indicated he was only done with his part for yesterday so I’m sure he’ll be back.

    Damn I love that picture! Did I say that already??

  6. Wow, he just cannot get any cuter. BTW, did we ever get a review from MJ on the concert she went to of Davids. Never did see it and I am curious as to what her opinion was. I think it was on 10/10/2009.
    Let me know if anyone knows where it is. And again, What a cutie.

  7. I think he might be going to greet the family in Disneyland. Celebs have done that before on there.

    Ooh, I’d love if that’s the case. Why would he need to go so early to pick them up, if the reveal isn’t until tomorrow? Maybe he’ll hang out with them a bit and do some taping? That’d be nice… ooh, twitter-stalked Andy and he’s also headed to the airport to leave Austin (where he and Monty had been hanging out these past few days). Maybe the band has something…? [/wild speculation]

    Ugh, I’m so excited about this and Carrie’s holiday special but they won’t happen for over a month, or in this case, 2-3! Ack. So impatient… =P

    And yes, Trina, we know you love that picture. We love it too :)

  8. i’ve had a lot of friends at the build this past week, and they said david was kind and gracious. the episode is going to air sometime in january.

  9. LOL, leome, I was thinking’ ¦ where in the world is David Cook? And why the hell am I wondering’ ¦ where in the world is David Cook? Hee!

    Great. Now you have me singing Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego…I’m always amazed at David’s skin and how he has nary a wrinkle despite all the scrunchy faces he makes when he sings *hugs his scrunchy faces*

  10. Damn I love that picture! Did I say that already??

    Yes, you did but I’m going to echo it! He’s a cutie.

  11. bjames….thanks for your post. That’s nice to hear but to be honest I wouldn’t expect anything less from him.

  12. Not pick the family up but probably tape some footage, could be totally off – just speculating based on what I’m familiar with re: EMHE. If he means he literally took a jet (and I think he might, ABC has been known to do the jet thing) its got to be connected to the show, I can’t imagine doing anything with the band smack in the middle of this ya know? I’m gonna keep a close eye though on Twitter..see if Monty or Neal tweet and give any hints. I love me some twitter stalking!

  13. So happy to see David Cook thread when I first logon to this site this morning. Thanks, MJ

  14. Hm – Andy & Monty were playing music for a friend’s music vid in Austin; Neal was relaxing with BBQ & Joey Clement. I think the EMHE is a solo Cook effort. (my twitter-stalking effort).

  15. @mikekellymusic just dropped @andyskib off at the airport. back in the studio. @montyanderson just showed up. dave is tracking hammond

    What does “tracking hammond” mean? Hammond, Indiana, Hammond organ? is dave “our dave?” Inquiring minds want to know.

  16. Yeah, I know DC was the only one on site, but I was just wildly speculating that maybe he’s meeting up with the band in LA for something since both DC and Andy got on planes today.

  17. I wonder how much was raised at the auction? Some proceeds went to the ACS, too, IIRC.

    Am very much looking forward to this. Awesome.

  18. I’m gonna keep a close eye though on Twitter..see if Monty or Neal tweet and give any hints. I love me some twitter stalking!

    Hee, I enjoy it too — I love Andy especially because he’s all full of Twitpics!

  19. mmmm… i love a cookie with my monday morning breakfast. the best way to start a week. those pix and video are adorable. love him. have i mentioned that ever?

  20. Monty just tweeted. It seems he’s still in Austin and staying there so definitely not a band thing. I’m inclined to believe that he is in fact “leaving on a jetplane” in relation to EM:HE

  21. I think he might be going to greet the family in Disneyland. Celebs have done that before on there. His tweet last night sort of indicated he was only done with his part for yesterday so I’m sure he’ll be back.

    That sounds like a great guess. And I like that, it should make for some great TV moments.

  22. i’ve had a lot of friends at the build this past week, and they said david was kind and gracious.

    Thanks bjames. Sounds like David, for sure. Great pic of Cookie!

  23. Monty just tweeted. It seems he’s still in Austin and staying there so definitely not a band thing.

    Love this twitter-stalking ;).

    His tweet last night sort of indicated he was only done with his part for yesterday so I’m sure he’ll be back.

    I forgot about that. He said done for the night. And this morning he said he’d be back. Not 100% sure that means he’s going to meet the family, but good indicators at least that he’d be back. Yay!! Can I squee? Squeee! I want to say the last time DC had a “TV spot” of some sort that was not a musical performance was that VH1 Free Radio show, and he was great. This show won’t be funny, but will show what a great guy he is, and gets WAY more ratings. Yay for more of America seeing that!

    i’ve had a lot of friends at the build this past week, and they said david was kind and gracious.

    bjames, thanks for the info. If you’re still around, did they say anything about whether they saw David doing any work…? Hehe, that’s one of my main curiosities for some reason. Now that I have pics, I want to know what he did onsite!

  24. Aw, my sweet Cookie! He’s so adorable. I haven’t watched this show in years but I am definitely taping this one! I love that he used that old Peter, Paul and Mary song in his tweet – I remember singing that song over and over again when I was a kid, swinging on my swingset in my backyard. Ah, memories…

  25. Cook with the hard hat perched on his big noggin is adorable.

    What a cool project.

  26. Aww Cookie and his smile!

    *Checks to see if they’re airing EMHE in my country*

  27. Oops, couldn’t edit my ^ comments. I noticed you linked those twitter photos in your OP, MJ.

  28. I hate David’s hair. If you are bald go without the rug.

    Aww, let’s be fair. It’s clearly a comb-over, and not a rug. A rug wouldn’t be so flat and thin, haha.

    But in seriousness, I kid and make fun of the thinning hair a lot (he’s clearly got a receding hairline situation on the sides that he could cover a lot better with a good cut and some daily attention with good hair products if AI7 was any indication), but I think the thin flat hair looks kinda cute in this picture. But I dunno, maybe I’m blinded by the smile.

  29. I love the hardhat pics. They make me smile!!!

    I’m still confuzzled why people say he’s bald. He’s not fricking bald. It’s called receding hairline. My brothers have ’em too :) And our whole family has what we fondly call a five finger forehead. Like, five fingers wide. Big, shiny foreheads. Well, maybe David has an extra finger-width on his. But much love for big noggins, hee!

  30. Awww, that is a cute pic. Hair schmair. How does he never look jet lagged and haggard with all of that flying? I wonder if Cook and Ty got into any hijinks on the site. You know, boys and their power tools…and the bullhorn. Don’t forget the bullhorn…

    Yep, still singing Peter, Paul & Mary. Good thing I love that song

    That song always reminds me of Armageddon, and the rag tag band of drill jokeys sharing a final moment of spontaneous levity before they board the space shuttle to save the world. *tear* Don’t judge…where else are you gonna see Michael Clark Duncan, Steve Buscemi, Ben Affleck, and the dude from Mad TV belting Peter Paul and Mary while Bruce Willis glowers in the background? Bet 2012 can’t top that. Hee. Cookie thread related? I wish they would have spoofed Armageddon when Affleck hosted Cook’s SNL eppy.

  31. That photo cracked me up because it looks like Ty also has a pretty massive skull, too. It actually looks bigger than Cook’s. Hee.

    Aw, I remember Ty from Trading Spaces. He’s looking more weathered these days.

  32. Aw, I remember Ty from Trading Spaces. He’s looking more weathered these days.

    Hehhehe… DC and his porcelain skin make him look like a fair princess who’s never lifted a finger next to the rugged, tan, leathery Ty. I think that’s why DC maintains the beard. To not overwhelm the rest of the world with the full glory of his pretty luminous skin. Hahahaha. See, I snark on the hairline, but at the end of the day, he always looks good to me. Can’t help it.

  33. He always looks good to me too. The lips, the smile, the eyes…

  34. I hate David’s hair. If you are bald go without the rug.

    How could you ever believe that’s a rug? Because, let’s be honest, if you are going to go with a rug, why in the world would you choose one that’s thin, flat and has bald spots and a receding hairline that you have to comb over? Frankly I wish he’d just go and get some plugs. That way the Neverending Adventures of the Locktopus wouldn’t be a constant source of distraction for the pretty that is the face. (And the armz.)

    Thanks to everyone for the hard hat pics. All we need now are tool belt pics.

    ETA: Until DC’s participation in EM:HE, I never knew there were women that thought Ty Pennington was some sort of hottie. I find this entirely mystifying (and somewhat funny), but obviously different strokes and all that.

  35. All we need now are tool belt pics.

    I have this theory that all DC did was walk around all day smiling for pictures and greeting people yesteday and didn’t do any actual work :). Heh. I’d love to see evidence otherwise though.

    Frankly I wish he’d just go and get some plugs.

    If DC would just get over his pride or whatever (I may be making assumptions here), I think he’d be much happier in the long run (without having to fuss over his hair) if he just got hair plugs after the tour ended when he’s out of the spotlight for a little while.

  36. I’m unconcerned with his hair. This is coming from somebody who doesn’t even remember her dad with hair…and I can remember when he was 28. He was fricking bald. Now I’m majorly concerned with his voice, and I don’t care what his hair looks like as long as his voice remains the same. I think one of the things that endears me to David Cook is that he’s not going to pretend he has no hair. He’s not going to pretend it’s more lush than it is. He’s about his voice and his band and he’s not about to try to appease superficial fans. I believe he knows he has enough fans without trying to win over those who would have him step n’ fetch it.

  37. I have this theory that all DC did was walk around all day smiling for pictures and greeting people yesteday and didn’t do any actual work

    I did see tweets yesterday from several people who were at the site and saw David going into the house. Actually, the tweets were from folks who were waiting impatiently for him to come back out so they could see him, heh. So, maybe he was working inside for a while.

    ConstructionWorkerDave is a cutie.

    Ain’t gonna talk about the hair, cause I don’t care.

  38. Cook attending the This Is It, premier tomorrow night?:

    I saw this posted on the Adam thread and wondered if you knew that Cook is going to be on the Red Carpet for the new Michael Jackson film premier of THis is IT, tomorrow:

    http://7jours.canoe.ca/cinema/nouvelles/2009/10/23/11506731-7j.html

    translated by google:

    In Los Angeles, the Hollywood All-tread the red carpet of This Is It, at the Nokia Theater. Among the rain of stars who have confirmed their attendance include personalities such as Adam Lambert, Allison Janney, Anne Heche, Antonio Sabato Jr, Ashlee Simpson, Ashley Tisdale, Ben Vereen, Berry Gordy, Carrie Ann Inaba, Corbin Bleu, Dana Delaney, David Cook, Eric Winter, Forest Whitaker, Fran Drescher, George Lopez, Jaime King, Jamie Kennedy, JC Chasez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jose Eber, Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman, Kate del Castillo, Mario Lopez, Michael Rapaport, Mike Tyson, Neil Patrick Harris, P. Diddy, Paula Abdul, Paris Hilton, Ray Liotta, Regina Hall, Reverand Al Sharpton, Sharon Lawrence, Smokey Robinson, Snoop Dogg, Sugar Ray Leonard, Tyrese Gibson, Viola Davis and Vivica A Fox.

  39. Okay..you guys are cracking me up with Locktopus. There are other fans that make up different names for an Idol’s physical attributes, yay!! He is definitely a cutie, love his smile and the way his eyes crinkle up. The hair works for him, receding or not. Nice project to work on, even though I think the show stinks, it’s nice that he contributes like this and it definitely gets him some great exposure. David is my second favorite contestant ever and I’m ready for the next CD, what’s the outlook on that?

  40. Haha, I knew it!! (The hair discussion will surface again) I don’t think he is bald or has receding hairline, at least not yet. He just has very thin hair and big forehead. Cute boyish looking picture.

  41. Cook attending the This Is It, premier tomorrow night?

    That would be so random.

    David is my second favorite contestant ever and I’m ready for the next CD, what’s the outlook on that?

    David says they’re aiming for Spring. He’s got a few songs written, but will take time after the tour ends in December to work on it full speed.

  42. DC and his porcelain skin make him look like a fair princess who’s never lifted a finger next to the rugged, tan, leathery Ty.

    That just cracked me up — he needs to rub some forehead wrinkles in or something. DWTS spray tan? Of course he’s also just a baby at 26… but still, purtiest boy skin ever.

  43. Maybe then he wont be there for the reveal tomorrow? That’s a really long flight from Indiana so that would really be cutting it close since the reveal is at 2pm. hmm.

  44. Cook attending the This Is It, premier tomorrow night?

    Hm, not sure how he could do this and be at the house reveal in IN tomorrow as well. Also, Andrew just tweeted and it sounds like he and Dave are together – not sure where, though. Boy needs some rest.

    Movie premieres don’t seem to be his thing, but maybe there’s some PR reason for it. Interesting.

  45. O.M.G.

    The guy is fugly… and it will only go downhill once he can’t hide the hair loss more deftly.

    Anyway, if at least he were some amazing artists, but the truth is Cook is as mediocre and forgettable as they come.

    To me, David Cook has gone as far as he will ever go, or deserves to go based on what he is or has to offer as an artist. He will continue to sell records, he will keep living from the music industry indefinitely, have moderate successes, but he will never be nothing more. There’s nothing more there…

  46. Also, Andrew just tweeted and it sounds like he and Dave are together ‘“ not sure where, though.

    Ah, twitter-stalking. It’s an imperfect tool, but better than nothing. What did Carrie call twitter? Organized stalking, haha. Too true. DC, just tweet us already and tell us, where did you fly to this morning, for what, and where will you be tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night? Hehe, yes, your fans are a little demanding.

  47. DC, just tweet us already and tell us, where did you fly to this morning, for what, and where will you be tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night? Hehe, yes, your fans are a little demanding.

    He should know by now what the people want. Tell the people, David. Just tell the people. At least Andy says where he’s going. And has pictures. :)

  48. LOL Where in the world is he and where in the world is he going to be tomorrow?
    I want him to meet the family and I wouldn’t mind if he went to the premiere, maybe more pictures with his so controversial hair.

    He will continue to sell records, he will keep living from the music industry indefinitely

    That sounds really terrible. I don’t know, if this is his future, he better go back to bartending. Sell music and live from it? Oh, scary image.

  49. Now Dave and Adrew are twitter fighting (is that a term). Gotta love brothers.

    Now, one or the other needs to spill where they are. I must know.

    Is that too creepy?

  50. Andrew’s tweet is so confusing! WTF? Why would he rush out of Indiana to head back to KC? That tweet was really early. I just think it would be really odd if he didn’t even bother to meet the family..

  51. I don’t know, if this is his future, he better go back to bartending. Sell music and live from it? Oh, scary image.

    Run, David, Run.

    LOL at HairGate vol. 3,560. No DC thread is complete without it.

  52. He will continue to sell records, he will keep living from the music industry indefinitely, have moderate successes, but he will never be nothing more.

    I don’t agree with the rest of your post, but hey, ^^ this still sounds better than what he had before AI: namely making $800 a month painting houses and bartending, half of which went to rent, living in a friend’s living room, struggling to get gigs where he played to 5 people. He gets to make a more than comfortable living playing music, without having to worry about a day job. From Forbes, he’s already a millionaire. I think it’s all gravy from here. He gets to use his celebrity for good, like be on this show, auction off signed guitars for good causes, sell charity singles and run races benefiting causes close to his heart like brain cancer research, visit childrens hospitals to bring joy to the kids, etc. etc. This kind of “moderate success” isn’t so bad! Not to mention all those cool experiences he already has under his belt like SNL, playing the HRD at the All Star Games. He even said after SNL, that “no one can take that experience from me”, as in, similar to what he said post AI-win. If this is it, if nothing else, it’s been a hell of a ride. Smart guy.

    Sooo confused about DC’s whereabouts!

  53. He definitely has a receding hairline, at the minimum. Once the hair is gone, it’s not coming back. And, like it or not, his hair is a distraction to many fans and to himself, or else he wouldn’t constantly be playing with his “bangs.”

    Personally, as I said in the headlines thread, I think he should just crop the whole thing really short. Not shaved, but very close-cropped. Maybe hairplugs are the way to go, but I’ve never seen anybody with a good set of plugs. If it is the way to go, though, he needs to do it STAT before it becomes blatantly obvious that it’s not his real hair.

    I really want to see David on my televison for a long, long time, but he’s never going to get any serious acting gigs if he doesn’t get his look together. Not unless he’s looking to be cast in a Judd Apatow film as a “funny schlubby white guy.” I hate that I care about the hair, I really do. But that “Happy Together” hair was so tragic, I couldn’t even look at him. And I liked him at that point; he was one of my favorites! But there was something skeery about that hair; he actually resembled Jack Black!

    David has a fantastic personality and is a great singer. He’s not the only person in the world to be follicularly-challenged. I just wish he’d deal with it to put the whole discussion to rest.

  54. That ‘Happy Together’  hair was so tragic, I couldn’t even look at him. And I liked him at that point; he was one of my favorites! But there was something skeery about that hair: He actually resembled Jack Black.

    That’s when I thought he looked like the Jester. Before I realized that I love him. LOL!

    Now, one or the other needs to spill where they are. I must know.

    Is that too creepy?

    Maybe that’s our new form of David Cook no-shows-to-watch withdrawal. We just play… Where in the World is David Cook?

    Nobody thought it was creepy looking for Carmen Santiago, right?

    Oh, well, I guess David is a real person. But STILL!

  55. I just wish he’d deal with it to put he whole discussion to rest

    Would it really put it to rest, I doubt it. Peeps ( women) would just find something else to critique. It’s a big whatevah to me.

    As far as TV and Movie roles. makeup and hair artist seem to help out Bruce Willis and Nic Cage pretty well. LOL

  56. his hair is a distraction to many fans

    Not this fan. Seriously, his hair is a distraction?

    I just wish he’d deal with it to put the whole discussion to rest

    I don’t think he care one whit about his hair or what his picky fans think about it. And, good for him.

    David, where arrrreeee yyyyooouuu???

  57. EmmaJK – I am reminded of the youtubes from a concert when David was wearing a hat. Fans yelled for him to take it off. He did for 10 seconds. He counted. and then he asked if people came to the concert to see his hair or…this. Then he turned around so you could see his rear. Hilarious. I really don’t think he cares what people think about the hair.

  58. On David’s projected CD release date: Sometime next summer.
    On David’s hair: Love the man in his entirety, no changes necessary.
    On David’s whereabouts: ?? Face it, the guy likes to mess with us. Keeps us guessing.
    On David’s good works: Love it!

  59. Not this fan. Seriously, his hair is a distraction?

    After a year and a half of his hair coming up in discussion, yeah, I’m afraid it is. And I don’t believe for one second that he doesn’t care about it. I hate that it appears he feels the need to comb it forward. It’s not like he doesn’t want to be thought of as attractive; he IS attractive. If he weren’t, it wouldn’t be an issue. Just cut it off already! It’s like an old Band-Aid that needs to be ripped off. Maybe his mom can talk some sense into him. We’re usually the ones who rip the Band-Aids off after all!

  60. Personally, I could care less about his hair. I do find him cute (which has just as much to do with his personality as it does his appearance) but in the end it’s about the music, so as long as his hair doesn’t effect his songwriting and/or voice, I’m happy.

    /Proud to be a member of Cook’s Cult.

    Ditto!!

  61. WTF?!

    @thedavidcook, you have an ugly smell coming off your face right now at lunch.

    @ACookOfficial you have an ugly face coming off your face right now at your entire life.

    @thedavidcook, WOW! I can’t believe you didn’t tip the waitress!

    @ACookOfficial I tipped her by telling her not to listen to AC on KCRadio. She thanked me profusely.

    @thedavidcook good job scooting out of the booth. Is that a bead of sweat I see fat ass?

    OMG, stop twitter fighting with your brother and tell us where you are!!

  62. Not this fan. Seriously, his hair is a distraction?

    After a year and a half of his hair coming up in discussion

    Eh, it usually starts with someone who doesn’t like him to begin with, and then escalates from there.

    Enough. Luv you Dave.

    (sorry for the post-ho)

  63. Once the hair is gone, it’s not coming back.

    Oh I dunno about that. ;) Recently on the AOL homepage I spied a gossip blurb about stars with magically reappearing hairlines, and a before and after pic. I’m not saying I thought of Cookie and Hairgate, but, well… Anyway, Mel Gibson, Nick Cage, Kevin Coster, Matthew McConaughey….apparently it’s more common in Hollywood than most people realize. I don’t think the general public really linger on the mystery of magically regrowing hair unless there’s like a botch job or a bad William Shatner-esque toupe involved, or fugly extensions. I can’t find the AOL thing, but I found this blog with similar before and after pics. I imagine it’s pretty expensive to have the restoration done properly but Tom Brady, for one, looks fab so why not. And I really can’t imagine Matthew McConaughey with a buzz cut.

    I gotta say I’d be stoked to see Cook cast in an Apatow movie as the funny schlubby guy. Funny is sexy. Move over, Paul Rudd…

  64. EmmaJK ‘“ I am reminded of the youtubes from a concert when David was wearing a hat. Fans yelled for him to take it off. He did for 10 seconds.

    Smart boy. When you have an ass like that and point it out people aren’t going to be looking at his hair anyway :p

  65. LMAO. Thanks for bringing that over sma11ie. Oh those Cook boys!

    Hi EmmaJK, nice to see you too! *waves*

    … I’m suddenly compelled to go listen to the Hair Soundtrack.

  66. yep David and Andrew Cook are in the midst of twitter wars. I’ve got two children not dissimilar to their ages. I’m loving every second of it. I ultimately think there won’t be a winner or loser, and for some reason I think their battle is in Chicago andf am hoping for some amazing Dim Sum. Yeah, probably not but a girl can hope.

  67. EmmaJK ‘“ I am reminded of the youtubes from a concert when David was wearing a hat.

    I have that one favorited ;)

    awww, I liked his Billie Jean hair. I thought he was adorable.

    The brothers twitter fight is hilarious.

  68. And I don’t believe for a second that David is sitting around worrying about how a bunch of picky women/mom types think he should dress or cut his hair or live his life in general.

    He’s only human. What guy losing his hair doesn’t care about it? Like it or not (and from what I can tell he loves it), being in the spotlight draws attention to all your flaws. No, I don’t think he gives a rat’s ass what “a bunch of picky women/mom types think.” And I don’t think he gave it any thought before he was on Idol but, as a result of the show, he became a bit of a sex symbol, and now he has to try to live up to that expectation. Or not. But I’m guessing he likes being considered sexy. And he can go the Judd Apatow route if he wants, but I bet he’d rather get a pretty boy role than a schlub one.

  69. If he was an actor trying to get parts, I think his hair would be more of an issue. As a lead singer of a band, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.
    Twitter is a dangerous tool for stalking (hey, I’m guilty of it too). I wonder how aware these celebs are of people following their every tweet.

  70. wellhesback:

    One of the great Declaration Tour moments. Dave’s self-deprecating sense of humor is one of the things that makes him awesome, IMO. Well, along with Teh Voice and a few other things. He has hair?

    EmmaJK:
    Now, one or the other needs to spill where they are. I must know.
    Is that too creepy?

    If it is, you’ve got lots of company at the creepy table *pulls up a chair*

    Do we get a special cult handshake or something?

  71. If he was an actor trying to get parts, I think his hair would be more of an issue. As a lead singer of a band, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.

    Well, he did say he would like to get into acting some day….. ;-)

  72. I have got to say I really miss AI season 7 artists! They always seemed to do for others – David, David, Brooke….. They were pretty special and I wish AI could do a season 7 reunion or use them for AI gives back show! David and David Archuleta need to unite and do a fundraising concert too! Those two have been exceptional in their charity work! I’ve been keeping up with this season the most!

  73. Nah, we know the French have him on the red carpet for the “This is It” roll-out. We just prefer to drink Kool-Aid and obsess over his hair (or lack thereof). ;-)

  74. As for me, I’m just trying to figure out how he’s handling all this logistically. Doesn’t he have to interact with that Extreme Home Make Over family? How can he do that and be in L.A. too? And, in the midst of it all, have a fight with his brother at some diner. I’m wondering if they have the wrong Cook on that list; maybe it’s Dane Cook.

    http://twitpic.com/mx55l

    I warn you, this may be in poor taste…. Hmm, yes it is. Very much so. But maybe we’re all supposed to wear blue T-shirts and white hard hats, rather than sneakers and jumpsuits.

  75. Nah we’ve know about what he was supposed to do tomorrow but we’re trying to figure out why he left the Extreme Makeover house in Indiana to fly off to Kansas City to dine with his brother only to have to be back in Indiana by 2pm tomorrow and then manage to get to the movie premiere several hours away in a short timeframe. I’m dizzy just thinking about it. Maybe we took his tweet last night too literally and he actually was finished with his part in the whole EMHE project and not just yesterday??I would be reallly shocked though if he didn’t want to be there for the reveal. Jesus we need more Twitter stuff to help us here damnit!

  76. Sorry, I’m back from RL.

    To those who asked, yes, I’m dead serious.

    I think I’ve watched enough Cook’s performances to say, regarding his voice and without being an expert, where are the nuances, the shades? When does he convey complex emotions? All I hear is a deep, masculine voice belonging to a 20 something boy playing to be a rock star, singing high/low the best he can and that’s it.

    Boring.

  77. When does he convey complex emotions? All I here is a deep, masculine voice belonging to a 20 something boy playing to be a rock star, singing high/low the best he can and that’s it.

    Could it possibly be in the one-take cut of “Permanent” when he and everybody else in the room started crying? He – and others in the audience- are often to said to break down when he performs it in concert. Or maybe in “My Daily AntheM” in which his love for his terminally ill brother breaks through.

    “Permanent” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE24krzBzPQ

  78. As for where in the world is David Cook?

    Well, it is not out of the realm of possibility that DC would fly to KC for a concert and return back to Kokomo, IN for the reveal. There are private jets as well as commuter flights from Indiana to MO. Commuter flights are only a couple hours. Besides, what else does he have to do there? Maybe he missed his dog? And he did make over $2M last year just on was “known” (in Fortune Magazine). So that wouldn’t surprise me if David is there. I know he flew to NYC for a DWright fundraiser, and high tailed it back to a concert location. So I think he’s used to traveling.

  79. I enjoy some snark about his hair, it always makes me laugh, but his hair was never a distraction. (It’s always the same, you’ll get a non Cook fan making a joke and then his fans do the snark’ ¦)

    This. At least I thought it was this. I had no idea it would get so deep and involved and serious! LOL

    And thanks to my fellow followers for the photos of The Oh So Mighty One. Ahmmmmmmm…. Ahmmmmmmm….

    For those still asking “Where in the world is David Cook?” Ahem, he’s here with me. :-)

  80. Um, for the record, I love the deep masculine voice and the beautiful falsetto — Cook has both, lest we forget (among other things) Little Sparrow. Another unnamed (yet apparently referred to) someone has both, in my view, and I love him too (and Cookie’s ok with that, he told me so himself just now. :-)) I gotta whole lot o’ love… to share… and, heck, I’m a slut for a handsome songboy! And, right about now, I’m in slut heaven. LOL

  81. Can you send a tweet from a phone and have it say “from the web”? I’m wondering if the whole lunch thing isn’t a ruse. David’s tweets says “from mobile web,” while Andrew’s just say “from web.” I suppose if he was using a computer with wireless Internet at the restaurant, that might make sense. Hmm…thought I was being a sleuth there, but I guess it’s possible.

    Well, hopefully we’ll get a tweet soon and know for sure what’s going on!

    I sometimes wonder what it would have been like for me had the Internet been around during my Duran Duran worshipping days. My grades probably would have taken a deep nosedive, LOL!

  82. Are celebs always at the reveal? I think they’re probably expected there. I wanna know how will it work out with the MJ premiere. But hey, it’s not impossible, is it?

  83. I guess that kick might be coming for me… Promise I’ll play nice.

    So is DC really going to be at the premiere? Cool. Red carpet photos and lots more hair discussions to come!

  84. Red carpet photos and lots more hair discussions to come!

    Hair and outfit! Double the fun.

  85. If this doesn’t turn out to be true, I wasn’t here and you don’t know me.

    LOL

    I think I’ve watched enough Cook’s performances to say, regarding his voice and without being an expert, where are the nuances, the shades? When does he convey complex emotions? All I hear is a deep, masculine voice belonging to a 20 something boy playing to be a rock star, singing high/low the best he can and that’s it.

    Boring.

    That’s fine. To each his own. Just curious, though: Who are some of your favorite artists?

  86. um, for the record, I love the deep masculine and the beautiful falsetto – Cook has both

    So true, didn’t mean to slight the incredible range of my boy. Somewhere on youtube are the harmonies that David sang for all the songs on DCTR.

    I remember Rob Cavalo commenting on his range and abililty to unconsciously sing harmony to his own voice. He is the total *ahem* package.

  87. Somewhere on youtube are the harmonies that David sang for all the songs on DCTR.

    Wow, thanks for mentioning that, I had never heard those! I just now listened to the instrumentals and harmonies on The Truth and Silver and it gave me shivers. I can’t sing harmony if my life depended on it. His harmonies are beautiful!

  88. If he’s not at the reveal… how will he meet the family? Or will they only see footage and not ever get to meet him. That’s kind of lame for them, if that’s the case!

  89. Permanent. BEST.SONG.EVER (I want to cry every time I hear it, and not just because of backstory, which just adds to its poignancy.)

    Next up: Lie. (Are you listening to me, you idiots at RCA? I mean it. RELEASE IT TO RADIO RIGHT THE HELL NOW.)

    ETA: Adam and Cook on Red Carpet for TII. How did they know these are my two favorite Idols? *kisses*

  90. spritely
    October 26, 2009 at 6:11 pm
    Runs in panting to say: Do you think he’s in KC right now? Because BRUCE is here tonight! And I’m going to the concert! With other DC cult members! We’ll wear our sekrit pins! Sorry for all the eleventies! But. . .what if he’s here to see Bruce???

    Wouldn’t THAT be awesome. Hope you get a 2 for 1. Also – sekret pins? For real?!?! I totally want a sekrit pin………

    Lol, I have to say off all the disses I’ve seen thrown at Cookie over the past year and a half, not conveying emotion takes the cake. Bwah!

  91. Well, let’s see…Would he be flying out of Indianapolis? ‘Cuz a flight from Indianapolis to LA only takes 23 minutes, with the time change. Now, if he had a jet pack…

  92. “I think I’ve watched enough Cook’s performances to say, regarding his voice and without being an expert, where are the nuances, the shades? When does he convey complex emotions? All I hear is a deep, masculine voice belonging to a 20 something boy playing to be a rock star, singing high/low the best he can and that’s it.”

    My first thought was that growly tone and jealous, clenched lip thing he did in Hello on Idol in the line, “are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?” Looks to me like he’s experienced something similar. That whole song is full of emotion, actually. Shouting I love you? yeah. That song has it all…. yearning, jealousy, anger, lonliness, fond memories, etc. The World I Know performance at the finale of season 7 – full of emotion and the poignant beauty of his life journey told through song, as well as tears. He cried on the show all the time during/after singing – if that’s not complex emotion, I don’t know what is. And Permanent on the season 8 finale? good gosh, the entire fandom was on the edge of their seats wondering if he would be able to make it through the song without breaking down. And he did beautifully. David Cook is one giant complex emotion – of course it comes out in his art. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Does that help? I’d attach those videos if I knew how.

  93. (OK sorry for the post ho)

    I’ll forgive you if you forgive me.
    It’s been a slow day at work, LOL. But this has been quite amusing.

    And me too. I have nothing better to do. Oh, and here is the deep-fried oreos and peanut butter cups. :)

  94. Some celebs have been at the reveal especially the ones who sing later on. Kellie Pickler definitely was, her show didn’t air yet but I know she was there and met the family.

  95. Uh oh, was it spritely who was supposed to go the Bruce concert tonite. It’s apparently been cancelled due to a death in Bruce’s family. I’m sure that’s why David made a special trip to KC as well. Bummer.

    I wouldn’t have it any other way’ ¦

    …If you want to know the truth’ ¦

    Hee. And, awwwww.

  96. Who is Bruce, and will I kick myself when I find out that I already knew? :)

  97. Um, for the record, I love the deep masculine voice and the beautiful falsetto ‘” Cook has both, lest we forget (among other things) Little Sparrow.

    Just referencing his AI peformances, Cook also used that falsetto in “All I Really Need Is You,” “Baba O’Riley,” and “The World I Know.”

    This hasn’t been productive ‘“ but it would be more frustrating if I cared more about the subject. I have not received any enlightenment. My position stands.

    You’re right. It wasn’t productive, but thanks for helping us to look back and think about why we began loving our Idol.

  98. But, just cause we follow his example does not mean we should all start balding. I keed cuz I love.

    I don’t want to start balding but… and here goes my application for #1 fan again… I *do* have a widow’s peak complete with big forehead. I mean, it’s not quite Cookie-big but I do commiserate about the big ol’ forehead because mine has made me nuts my whole life. I finally gave up on trying to have bangs, cuz they were kinda skeery. So, David, great leader, EMBRACE THE FOREHEAD. It ain’t so bad. Either that, or I just drank forehead Kool-Aid, and in that case, you should drink some too!

    David would definitely yell at us if we were mean to other people’s fans. Have you heard his daddy voice that he gets when he scolds people?

    So it IS confirmed that he’s doing the red carpet thing? Did we ever Where in the World Is Cookie? And figure out how exactly he was doing all this? While finding time to fight with his brother (who, BTW, also has a pretty big noggin).

    Oh, man, you know what? My husband has a big head, too. Do I just like men with big heads? Is that IT?! Nah. There’s more to IT :)

  99. Who is Bruce, and will I kick myself when I find out that I already knew?

    Oh my gosh, I didn’t know you were serious, um seriously. Bruce Springsteen.

  100. Oh my gosh, I didn’t know you were serious, um seriously. Bruce Springsteen.

    I will now hang my head in shame.

    Oh and I also noticed Andrew has a big head. Well more long than anything. So does Neal (Tiemann)

  101. And did I mention, BTW, that it was cool that he was able to raise $1150 with the guitar auction? Loved watching that video :)

  102. And I am laughing that he’s goody-two-shoes. Hee. There have been whole threads debunking that one!

    I do recall the Lana Jade thread as debunking it. :)

  107. Speaking of tweets, them brothers Cook are too funny on twitter. This isn’t the first time they’ve gone on a twitter war and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I love that they keep snarking on each other… gives us cult members something to be entertained with while the tour is on break.

    On one last note, I’m actually hoping we don’t hear anything from David after these next couple of days. He only has a short break before going back on tour and it seems like it has been a working break so far. He really ought to get some real vacation time even for just a couple of days.

  108. Oh, one last thing. sorry if I’m spotty, but I’m trying to catch up on other threads.

    I know Cook lost his brother to cancer. I lost my mother to cancer, and a year later, a 33-year-old cousin, mother of two. Devastaing times, but we were ADULTS. As much as it affected our lives (I almost lost my job), we were already the persons we were going to be. Perspectives can change, general outlook on life, but we were not vulnerable children who were going to be defined by the tragedy.

    That’s important to me.

  109. Ah man, The Cook Brothers’ Thrilla Not in Manila is really getting intense.

    ACookOfficial Just went to the restroom here at the restaurant, and saw “For a let down call @thedavidcook”

    thedavidcook Oh, sweet, illiterate, @ACookOfficial… It says for a GET down, call…. Funny thing is, it’s your number…

    thedavidcook By the way, @ACookOfficial, what were u doing Iin the womens’ restroom… Creeper

    ACookOfficial @thedavidcook calls @montyanderson lover even thought @montyanderson asks him not to call him that.

  110. Bruce in KC may have been canceled tonight (thoughts for Bruce), but apparently, little brother Cook reported on his radio show this past weekend that he’ll be seeing OLP when they play KC this weekend. One would think it’s certainly possible that his Big Brother/Comedy Partner will be there with him, and perhaps he’ll join the headliner on stage once as he has done before? Here’s to hoping.

  111. Omg the Twitter convo between cook and Andrew is gold. They’re talking about creepers now.

  112. This auction also raised money for the ACS. Why that is a bad thing is truly confounding.

    Moving on… as I’d rather eat oreas than take more bait. Pass the grape koolaid, please.

  113. Andrew will forever be Cupcake to me now. I love those Cook boys.

    I like this cult, too. It’s cozy. Where are those Oreos?

  114. LOL the twitter fight is not over yet.
    Yes, get the band members into that. I would not mind.

  115. Carmen – Cook was 15 when his brother was first diagnosed, hardly an adult. I’m just putting that our there because I assume you didn’t know it, since I can’t imagine anyone who has been through cancer with their own loved ones would ever want to come across as callous toward the suffering of another cancer stricken family, even if that family choses to be relatively quiet about it. Regardless of whether they are a fan of that person’s music or not.

    wheezie_v

    Wouldn’t that just be all kinds of awesome? And we need some new Cookie video. We just needs it. *eyes the koolaid*

  116. Maybe the tweet from TheBelchers put some things into perspective and the twitter war is on hold for now:

    The_Belchers Chemo has knocked out Lindsey Rose’s hair again. She’s bummed, but looks beautiful.

    The_Belchers I speak for Lindsey Rose when I say “Suck it, cancer!”

    The_Belchers Say it with us @thedavidcook fans: “Suck it, cancer!” #suckitcancer http://twitpic.com/n3h4r

    And I do think that David at age 15 having to deal with his big brother facing cancer influenced the person he is today.

  117. I’m thinking my kool aid is of the vino variety. Ravenswood Petit Sirah sounds good right now.

    Maybe the tweet from TheBelchers put some things into perspective and the twitter war is on hold for now:

    As much as I understand that, I hope they return to it in the near future.

    I have the Belchers in my thoughts.

  118. Aw, what a beautiful girl she is. Damn, I hate that disease. Yeah, I admire David’s advocacy for cancer research.

  119. I have the Belchers in my thoughts.

    Me, too. Stay strong, beautiful girl.

    I’m in the treehouse/clubhouse/lodge or whatever is a step or two down from the main cult.

    We do offer a treehouse. It’s really cool. We just withhold oreos until you join the cult :)

  120. #suckitcancer

    All good thoughts for Lindsey Rose and others in the battle.

  121. I have the Belchers in my thoughts.

    Me, too. She’s still smiling, though. What a sweet little pumpkin she is.

    kook-aid? Bwah ha ha!

  122. I hope no one takes this wrong because I totally love David Cook, but Ty Pennington is the only one I know with worse hair than David. LOL

  123. Is that true really? I thought you could get them dry at treehouse level, just not battered and deep-fried.

    At the club level of the treehouse, you get dry oreos. The cheap seats? No oreos.

    #suckitcancer

    Amen to that.

  124. Going back a few hours, I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the “10 seconds without the hat” fun. The whole package looked pretty good to me, with or without the hat. But then, I’ve been drinking the kool aid for a long time now- I think I may be addicted!

    Thanks for all the laughs today, y’all. This has to be the funniest cult evah!

  125. but Ty Pennington is the only one I know with worse hair than David. LOL

    He looks a bit… startled in that picture. Or electrocuted? Or perhaps just windblown. I need to study his hair in various phases to get a good comparison with David’s, lol.

  126. Yah Ty has bad hair. It’s everywhere. Another person with bad hair is Russel Brand. Those 2 are the only people I can think of with hair worse than DC.
    I keed cuz I love. :)

  127. Emerging from lurkdom to get in on this epic, epic thread!

    Welcome! :) Once upon a time I lurked… I don’t remember what made me give up my seat in lurkerville but damn if I didn’t lose my way back, lol. It’ll happen, beware… you’ll one day wake up and realize… whoa! What happened?! I delurked, permanently!

  128. Sadly trudges in from the canceled Bruce Springsteen concert and from not seeing Dave there, and puts out poor little hand for any last drops of Kool-Aid. Lick, slurp. The most important thing, of course, is Bruce and his family.

    I thought about David a lot while I was downtown, because we saw the looong block of buses and equipment trucks that had brought all of Bruce’s crew to K.C. It was incredibly impressive. I thought, maybe someday that will be David Cook’s long line of vehicles. Even if it isn’t, though, even if it’s always two nice buses and a truck, or a van with eight guys packed inside, I’ll still be sucking on my Kool-Aid popsicles and going to cult meetings deep in the internet woods.

  129. He looks a bit’ ¦ startled in that picture. Or electrocuted?

    Ok, this made me spit hot chocolate everywhere. I think I’m getting slap-happy. Maybe I need to stop dipping the Oreos in the hot chocolate.

    seriously, don’t ever quit posting – seriously.

  130. hey, whats up with DCO ? did it crash or something?
    it says ”site off-line”

  131. Bahahaha, got back from midterms and found this thread went off the deep end, and the Cook brothers re-started their Twar. Loves it!

    He looks a bit’ ¦ startled in that picture. Or electrocuted? Or perhaps just windblown.

    Haha, I don’t even watch EMHE, but I feel like Ty ALWAYS looks like that.

    Oh sweet Lindsey Rose. I just rewatched this segment from when Lindsey met David, awww. Do whatcha gotta do hon, and #suckitcancer!

  132. Sadly trudges in from the canceled Bruce Springsteen concert and from not seeing Dave there, and puts out poor little hand for any last drops of Kool-Aid. Lick, slurp. The most important thing, of course, is Bruce and his family.

    Do we know who passed away in Bruce’s family?

    hey, whats up with DCO ? did it crash or something? it says ”site off-line’ 

    The site is loading for me.

  133. hey, whats up with DCO ? did it crash or something?

    Apparently, it’s undergoing maintenance, as per FoolsApril64.

    ETA: I think it’s back now.

  134. I love seeing all the chatter on the DC thread! I love my Adam but I loved David first and its a nice break.:)

  135. Haven’t heard yet who died in Bruce’s family. Man, Bruce is so loved by his long-time fans. One came from Alaska. I met three from Colorado who’ve been to Europe to see him. Reminded me of a certain baby rock star we know. At DC concerts, I’ve met fans from Manila and Moscow.

    I didn’t lose that eye I kept out. :)

  136. I love seeing all the chatter on the DC thread! I love my Adam but I loved David first and its a nice break.:)

    ^ ^ This.

    A nice break, indeed.

    Cook was my first foray into AI fandom and he will always hold a special place in my heart. Cool, too that Cook and Adam will be on the Red Carpet tomorrow, can’t wait for photos / vids of the event.

  137. Re: Bruce Springsteen cancellation. From Associated Press:

    “Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Rich Lockhart said officers were investigating the nonsuspicious death of a 34-year-old member of Springsteen’s road crew Monday afternoon at Kansas City’s Intercontinental Hotel.”

    ETA: “The celebrity Web site TMZ identified the victim as Lenny Sullivan, a cousin of Springsteen and an assistant tour manager.” – Kansas City Star

  138. can’t wait for photos / vids of the event.

    Squee! *harumph!* Umm… I mean, I look forward to that.

    If I just want a warm fuzzy feeling, I scroll up to the top of this page and take a look at that sweet, sweet smile. (But I have to cover Ty’s face up, he kinda scares me a little.)

  139. Prays to Lindsay Rose. Twitwars probably over for tonight. David ,I’m sure is in contact with her and her family

  140. But Russell Brand??

    Aww, I love me some Russell Brand. A smart guy with a sense of humor can get away with a lot in my book, even crazy hair.

  141. Sadly trudges in from the canceled Bruce Springsteen concert and from not seeing Dave there

    Oh no, I’m sorry. And terrible about the relative and tour member.

    And that Lindsay’s not doing well. Sad evening for many. :-(

  142. I closed the thread to clean it up.

    If you feel you are being baited, can you please ignore instead of piling on? And again, I think it’s important to remind everyone, that there are no fan threads at mjsbigblog.

  143. I’m reminded of how David twittered yesterday about Andrew Lloyd Weber
    “My heart goes out to Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. Great man. I swear I hate that damn disease…”

    #suckitcancer indeed.

    oh and prayers to the Boss’s family too.

  144. If you feel you are being baited, can you please ignore instead of piling on?

    Thanks for coming in so late, MJ. I had a chance to read it before the editing started. I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

    (I thought there was some remarkable restraint exhibited. Especially by this poster, since this is my first comment on this thread, hee hee.) ;)

  145. Sorry, MJ for the fun (piling on and etc) at your expense and time. Ignore button is fully working now, but I probably won’t be needing it. Back to lurker mode. MJ’s is still a great read.

  146. I wish I stayed here instead of trying to watch some of the Redskins game. I think I need to look at cute David Cook hardhat pictures again to make me happier. Sigh.

  147. Love him or hate him ( his music , hair, clothes, whatever), it’s nice to see a 26 yr old man making the effort to give back to society. Through his cancer awareness and fundraising activities to EM:HE. Pretty impressive to me for a new celebrity.

    ETA:

    TIERBEE,

    The Redskins have been breaking my heart since before the failed second coming of Joe Gibbs. Will the pain ever end? Must go peer into the arms thread on DCO ( sorry for off topic MJ – Not all of us can have the Patriots) heh

  148. Between the charitable work and the brothers’ twitter war, we did get to see two different sides of DC today, didn’t we?

    Also: #suckitcancer.

  149. Well I’m all for people doing charitable work, and of course David does a fair amount of that, so good on him. Even with the unfortunate hat hair, he looks good in the picture here, love the smile. And he was funny, as always, in that auction clip. I think I liked the coat as well, kind of hard to tell with the picture quality and how far away he was for most of it.

    Oh and hope Lindsey feels better, and unfortunate about the Springsteen tour mate and cousin, as well.

  150. The Redskins have been breaking my heart since before the failed second coming of Joe Gibbs. Will the pain ever end?

    Not until Dan Snyder either hires a manager and backs away from the football part of things… or until he goes away. *Sniff* See why I need David Cook? I can come back in here, look at the cute hardhat pics, and for a moment forget that my beloved team which I have loved since I had a Skins bib is a JOKE! Waaaaah!

    Whatever would I do without your blog, MJ? :) Just love it.

  151. from @thedavidcook:
    #suckitcancer… suck it hard
    25 minutes ago from mobile web

  152. Whenever the 5 finger forehead comes up, I’m reminded of an episode of America’s Next Top Model where they were threading off (OMG so painful looking) some woman’s hair so she had an at least 3 finger forehead. I’m so not into Neanderthal foreheads.

    In other news, Cookie tweeting “suck it hard?” While cancer is horrible and I pray daily for those dealing with this scourge, seeing those words fly off his fingertips…nevermind, not going there.

  153. ah tierbee and fergie – i come in here one more time before bed seeking an update on david cook’s whereabouts – and what do i found? two fellow suffering ‘skins fans. was that game just a load of crap or what? yesterday was the best sunday in a long time because i was able to say, “the skins didn’t lose today.”

    sigh. where is cookie anyway?

  154. Only the joy of following David Cook on his adventures makes the fall of a once great NFL franchise tolerable. *sniff,sniff*

  155. Okay, I walk away for a few days to try to get some work done, but the lure of the Cook is too strong. I’ve never watched this Makeover show but I guess I’ll be watching come January. Of course, I’d never watched American Idol either till I saw Cook’s commercial for it. Funny how that works.

    And omg *thank you* to those who pointed and linked to those harmony tracks. The one for “Lie” Is so beautiful it makes me want to weep.

    DC’s harmonies are one of the things I enjoy most about his vocals on so many songs. I remember hearing him harmonize on the “Heroes” duet with Archie when watching clips of the finale and being completely blown away. At that point in my youtube scouring for all things Cook I thought I already knew everything I needed to know about his voice but I was so wrong. Since I’m pretty greedy where his music is concerned, these new clips are going to entertain me for days. : )

  156. So do we have any solid confirmation about DC at the TII premiere? I’m not sure how reliable the info was.

  157. Oh wow, we got modded =P. It was funny re-reading the thread with all the oblique references to cults and oreos and kool-aid and a balding cult leader, sans the original posts… Sorry MJ, I know this isn’t a fan thread and will be better next time, promise!

    So do we have any solid confirmation about DC at the TII premiere? I’m not sure how reliable the info was.

    Agreed. I’m not sure. Aside from one French Canadian article and Jim Cantiello’s tweet (like someone said, maybe it was the invite list, not the confirmed list of attendees), we have no confirmation that I know of that DC is even gonna be in LA tonight. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see him get some more exposure, and maybe even interact with Adam (they’re both such nice guys who seem to respect each other, are gracious to others), but I just don’t see it happening. I think the Cowan-Browns would love to see DC at the unveiling, maybe get a song? I dunno, if Kellie P got to do that, I’d love to see DC get featured the same way on the show.

    DC is sooo good at harmonies. I love hearing him duet with people– even loved him in all the group numbers on AI.

  158. ~enters thread, munching on a fried oreo~ I’d ask for a napkin, but I know y’all don’t mind cookie crumbs. (Can I get a rimshot, Kyle? Ba dump bump…chhht. )

    As for me, I’m just trying to figure out how he’s handling all this logistically. Doesn’t he have to interact with that Extreme Home Make Over family? How can he do that and be in L.A. too? And, in the midst of it all, have a fight with his brother at some diner.

    One word: hologram! Explains a lot.

    My heart goes out to Lyndsay Rose, the Springsteen family, and, to a slightly lesser degree, Redskin fans. Also: #suckitcancer

  159. Looks like David will be at the house reveal for EM: HE:

    @KokomoTribune: As project wraps up, David Cook, Xzibit, Ty Pennington and show designers are all on the scene.

  160. Well, super, I’m glad he’ll be there. It probably means he’ll miss that movie red carpet thing & any attendant publicity, but I think this is better.

  161. Seems to me it’s possible he could still make it. Depending on Kokomo’s time zone, he’d pick up either two or three hours in flight. I hope he makes it. Because god knows I wouldn’t want the boy to get any rest or down time. My seeing him on my television is what’s important. Oh, and he’d better send me twitters from the red carpet and audience, too. “Excuse me, but I have to pause now and let spritely know what famous people I’ve met.”

    I’m nothing if not a reasonable fan with modest expectations.

  162. thedavidcook Wrapping in Indiana. Off to LA! Woo to the hoo!
