i could swear i saw this picture or one like it when they were rehearsing for the front to back concert.

Sledge's hair is much shorter in that picture than it was during Front to Back.

But does it sound accurate enough for you? Anything you'd like changed?

Hey J-dog, I was just wondering if you've had a chance to finish the sheet music for this?

I don't understand how to download the torrents on the site. I've signed up and confirmed my account and whatnot, but everytime I click on what I think is the download link, it's only a small file. What do I do?

You have to download a torrent client like ĀµTorrent . Once you have it installed, you add the .torrent file to the client. It should start downloading then. It's a bit confusing. :P

Alright so I've made some progress, but still need help. Haha. I've downloaded uTorrent the the torrent is going into the cue but not downloading. It just sits there. Help?

Are there any seeds? Usually lack of seeds would be the main reason for it not downloading.

It says there are three seeds?

General Board / Re: Foldsby's New Song Belinda
« on: October 21, 2009, 09:25:45 PM »
Just in case someone wants em:


Every night, around this time, he has to sing "Belinda"
"Belinda, I love you. Don't leave me. I need you"
He tried to stop a while back, but what's he without her?
A one hit wonder with no hits, is what he is
And anyway, he always hears how much it means to people
There's a lot of forty somethings who wouldn't be in the world without it
So now he does it with this lyric in his head

"Belinda, I loved you. I'm sorry that I left you. I met somebody younger on a plane. She had big breasts, a nice smile, no kids either. She gave me complimentary champagne."

No one ever wants to hear the song you wrote for Cindy
"Cindy, I love you. I need you. Don't leave me."
And he can't blame them
They can tell, his heart was never in it
Cindy never liked it, but she never much liked him

"Belinda, I loved you. I'm sorry that I left you. But I met somebody younger on a plane. She had big breasts, a nice smile, no kids either. She gave me complimentary champagne."

So every night about this time, he feels the ol' self loathing
While the old folks in the audience sing along
And he smiles and waves the mic at them so they can do the chorus
But he's not there, he's somewhere else
He's with Belinda
In he days before he made it all go wrong

"Belinda, I loved you. She gave me complimentary champagne. She gave me complimentary champagne."

Tour Board / Re: Bloomington, IN - September 27, 2009 (new song debut)
« on: September 28, 2009, 09:06:40 AM »
So this tour is seemingly completely solo. Cool. I wasn't around back then in the ben and a piano tour, so last night was exciting for me cause it was different. And Ben treated us well with the set list, as well as debuting a brand new Foldsby track. Which I did record, will be on youtube eventually, but the upload page is not loading right now. So, watch this space.

Set list.

1 Free Coffee (no distortion or anything. I feel like it makes the song immensely sadder.)
2 Annie Waits (during which he stopped and pulled his phone out of his pocket - maybe it went off? - and let out a quiet 'shit' and then continued the song.)
3 Sentimental Guy
4 Eddie Walker
5 Used to Live Here/Rock this Bitch in Fecal Park (which RtB was not yelled for, happened naturally. some ass yelled for it later, however)
6 Effington
7 Jesusland
8 All U Can Eat (Ben talked about how they used to be called All You Can Eats, then they were All You Care to Eats, and now they're back)
9 Picture Window
10 Belinda
11 Levi Johnston's Blues
12 You Don't Know Me (Featuring Katie sdjfldfjg-dfjolkjdf .... who has classical training, and was hilariously awesomley fantastic with Regina's part)
13 Kate
14 Still Fighting It
15 Last Polka
16 Zak & Sara
17 Dr Yang (which without Jared - well the bass- sounds crazy. Ben talked about how he likes to write songs that can be preformed in each setting - solo, band and symphonies - but this one he had to adapt a bit to even work solo. it was different, definitely not bad, but different. so used to that blown out bass)
18 Landed
19 Such Great Heights
20 Army
21 Selfless, Cold and Composed
22 Not the Same

Encore:
23 Narcolepsy
24 Bitches Ain't Shit (which was being yelled for all night - college campus shows it's even more likely to be yelled for - and ben said he likes to make people happy even though he's tired of the song.... played it through, had us continue with the 'bitches can't hang with the streets' bit all the way through the end per usual, but told us he was gonna leave the stage to us still singing it, which he did, and then ran back on stage to conclude the whole event.)

Lucky!!!

It sounds absolutely fantastic. You don't need to change anything on my account, but if you feel as though a certain part could be improved or something, go right ahead. But I think it sounds excellent. Thank you so much  ;D
