General Board / Retrospective Videos
« on: January 01, 2013, 01:05:46 PM »
So, sometimes when I get bored, I sift through Folds videos on YouTube, and I had forgotten that, for some reason, you just can't access some of the retrospective promo videos in America. Do we have those ripped somewhere? Or does anyone have a simple IP faking solution that will let me watch them?

News / What the f*ck is this? (New Folds song maybe?)
« on: August 07, 2012, 06:53:08 AM »
So, I went on the YouTubes to look up the live version of Eddie Walker that isn't on my CD (because I've yet to either get the import or download the mp3 ::) ) and I scroll down and find this:

Anyone know what this is or where it's from or whether or not it's actually Ben? Because I'm not 100% on the latter.

Tour Board / Ben Folds in Columbus, OH on 5/18/12

A friend who's working the venue just shared this with me.  Since I don't think I can hit Bonnaroo, I may have to compromise, though it's quite a drive:

Apaprently it's for charity, too?

You can check it out here, she said she thinks it's the best thing she and Keir have ever done.  Judge for yourself, but I'm interested?

News / New Ben Folds Five Album
« on: May 20, 2011, 04:42:44 AM »
Apparently, according to Ben, the Five recorded an album, then promptly vaulted it and forgot about it.  After cleaning up his storage from the flood, he found the tapes and is planning to release a multidisc set in November, including rarities, a live album, a greatest hits, and presumably the Five album (it may be counted in the rarities, I don't know).

For more, check out his talk on Like a Version, though I think I summarized it pretty well.

Tour Board / Champaign 1/25/11
« on: January 26, 2011, 04:53:50 PM »
So, I probably shouldn't have gone to this show, what with school obligations and everything, but whatever.  Was home by midnight, which was nice.  Setlist (with some uncertainty.  if anyone else went, please correct)

Levi Johnston's Blues
Doc Pomus
Annie Waits
You to Thank
Saskia Hamilton
Still Fighting It
Improv about the "traveling couch," from the name of one of the Streetcorner guys' EPs "Traveling Coach"
Picture Window
The Last Polka
--Band returns--
Bitch Went Nutz
You Don't Know Me
Bitches Ain't Shit (crowd request, which Ben said "oh, okay, but it's something you don't want to play every night")
One Angry Dwarf

I kind of hate that people yelled out for Bitches and Rock this Bitch, and wonder if that's why the only encore we got was a superfast OAD.  The show was good, overall, but Ben dropped some lyrics in 3 separate songs (he seems to have lots of trouble with the line "She's got more assonance than she knows what to do with," as he's dropped that before.), but Sam and Ryan pulled through, taking over vocals when he dropped them.  Also, Ryan's seeming to be more prominent in the backup vocals, and he and Sam were both doing Regina's part in You Don't Know Me.

That's all I got.  Hopefully Sunday's is longer and better.  The Assembly Hall was pretty underpopulated, but apparently the Pageant is sold out, which should lead to a better show, I think.

General Board / What does "sub-Ben Folds nyuks " mean?
« on: September 17, 2010, 08:12:54 AM »
So, I like Weezer, unashamedly.  We're not here to talk about that.  I broke my anti-pitchfork rule because Cuomo linked to their review of Hurley (albeit because of a typo), and I was curious if it got a 0.4/10 like Make Believe did.

Instead, I see it's their highest rated album since Maladroit (at 5/10, you can still be pretentious hipsters, pitchfork, you haven't lost your cred).  And then I read this:

"The first single, "Memories", is actually about older Weezer-- sure, the lyrics are sub-Ben Folds nyuks ("playin' hacky sack back when Audioslave was still Rage") "

What the hell does that mean?  That he's trying to sound like Ben and failing?  Or something more critical of Ben?  I don't know, and it just caught me off guard.

Here's the whole review, for anyone curous:

Tour Board / Ben Symphony gig in Utah on 7/17?!?
« on: July 12, 2010, 09:14:19 AM »
So, who's dropping the ball over at the PFoJ?

News / Rock Band 3: Where's my Folds, dammit!
« on: June 10, 2010, 07:58:02 AM »
So, Rockband 3 has a keyboard component.  Here's a little bit about it:

Obviously that's only a partial list, but considering that he's pretty much the 90's/00's/now piano rocker, I'd hope there's something on there.

Album Board / Foldsby Album seems to be on track!
« on: February 21, 2010, 07:52:36 PM »

Ben apparently needs to mix the tracks, and then we're good to go!  Said he'd have the record in hand soon; hopefully that means the March release date is accurate!

Album Board / iTunes Originals album
« on: January 21, 2010, 01:07:59 AM »
So, I've been finding it difficult to navigate wuwtl whenever I actually am looking for something in particular.  Is this on there anywhere, or should I just shell out the cash?  I already like what I've heard of the preview bits, and those combined with all the interview tracks have me pretty much sold on it if it's not findable elsewhere.

Album Board / Super D, Sunny 16, and Speed Graphic?
« on: December 21, 2009, 03:47:20 PM »
Does anyone know of a good way to buy these, or is ebay basically the only option right now?  (not that costs are an issue, I'd just like to find a seller who has all 3, to make my life a little easier)

Tour Board / Bruised live?
« on: November 03, 2009, 09:39:12 PM »
So, I'm not yet as much of a Ben veteran as some of you, but I get the feeling that I'm not likely to hear one of my favorite songs at any concert I go to.  Does anyone know if he's ever performed "bruised" live?  It seems like he should have, but since, from what I've gathered, it was a Bens song, maybe he avoids it for some reason?

Album Board / Symphony CD?
« on: October 01, 2009, 07:19:55 PM »
I keep seeing people mention a CD of the WASO concert, but I've looked around the internets and only found a DVD.  Does a CD exist, or are people just a little off?
