A million thanks to Ms.Darcy for designing our banner!!

Dear Fellow DCO'ers,

Like so many of you, I love to visit this site but find my real life just doesn't permit me to spend the amount of time needed to keep up with everything DC related. I know I'm not the only one frustrated when I have hundreds of unread messages and so many pages to read that I will never catch up. I hate missing out on the little nuggets of information that I know are buried in those pages. So on behalf of all of us who only get to steal a few minutes here and there to spend on this site, I respectfully ask this dedicated community to please, PLEASE, contribute to this "daily digest" of events: one thread that just captures the daily tidbits we crave. This isn't the place to discuss and debate or just hang out...we have great threads for that already. This is the spot to give us those little cookie crumbs that would otherwise remain buried in endless discussion. It's the spot that can get you up to speed if you've missed a few days online or only have a moment or two to spare.

For those wonderful individuals who I know will step up to the plate and be happy to share: You can add a whole recap of info for the day or just one little bit of news. Links would also be great in case we get a few extra moments to follow up! I know there are many of us who would be very appreciative.

Everyone is welcome to post additions to the digest so please ... pretty please ... add to this thread throughout the day as you find cookie crumbs!!! Thanks in advance to any who can help with this!!

A quick note about accuracy: I value accuracy in writing but I do want to emphasize that The Daily Digest reflects the conversations and threads on DCO. It is not an official announcement board. So if there is a misinterpretation of something on the boards it could also be reflected here. I don’t want people to stop posting because they are worried that their news can’t be verified. If you want to post but you aren’t sure if the statement is really accurate then just add something like, “it is rumored that” or “it is felt” or “it may be that.” Also keep in mind that a post taken out of context from a thread may not necessarily convey the meaning that the poster intended. So if you aren't sure about how to interpret an excerpt from another thread, here are some good things to keep in mind: Assume the best (everyone hear loves DC), Realize that humor may have been intended (humor doesn't always translate into a digest format), and realize that context is important. Keeping these things in mind will help us to continue enjoying The Daily Digest!!

Other Helpful Threads: If you have a few extra minutes to spend, the following threads have a lot of quick reference info at your fingertips and will help you get or stay current.The Best of DCO, The Everything Thread and The Nostalgia Thread

NEW NOTE: As things heat up for the new tour, please check the Upcoming Appearances/Events page frequently. This page is unnofficial but has the best and most current list we have available. It also will include links to all his radio interviews, etc. from this promo cycle (please note that PAST events are moved to an ARCHIVE weekly as the blog is updated). Want to download a collection of current radio interviews? Then go here: http://www.4shared.com/dir/dUo_bUoF/Radio_interviews.html

David Cook (from the Manila show) among the rotating images on @FerdieArQuero 's website http://www.ferdiearquero.com/ .

Info on Tampa M&G:
"Irish 31 We apologize for the VIP description cutting off, getting that fixed. VIP tix are $100 and all inclusive of food and drink. Private bathrooms and an Artist meet and greet is also included. VIP tix allow you to stay in VIP tent or roam the park freely. Tent will be located next to stage. Approx. 250 will be available. Park holds approx 8,000. "

They also said M&G likely to be after the performance - depending on what the artist wants. David will definitely be one of the artist. Others may also.

Only 250 VIP tickets available! Can. Not. Wait!

Irish 31 Tampa advises the park closes at 11pm - so if Dave gets on at 9:30, he maybe wont be pressured to get off too quickly.

Someone start a thread in the box office forum and you can put all your information about the Tampa show in there for everyone to see. Thanks!
