  1. Hey Masterclass Lady!! At 12:04am on nov 18th, david cook’s album was on my IPOD!! I could not sleep until I had a listen to the whole thing – thus I am very tired right now. I really LOVE this album and feel it demonstrates who David Cook really is. There is only 1 song that I personally don’t like – Bar-ba-sol??? spelling could be wrong. But otherwise every other song ROCKS! I am so excited!! you really MUST LISTEN to PERMENANT. You will absolutely love it! So much passion. It is really powerful and it makes me cry. Please tell me what you think of this song in particular – I’m curious. Well, gotta give someone a bath now. Talk to you soon

    I just added a new article about Cookie. Busy day – but I finally found time to collect my thoughts and point everyone in his direction.
