I've been thinking this up for a while now, but...

Ben Folds and G. Love are twocompletely different artists.  I've noticed though, that for some reason, alot of people who like G. Love also enjoy Ben Folds.  Today someone who saw I had my G. Love shirt asked if i liked ben folds... and he goes , "yeah, alot of people who like g. love like ben folds".  I noticed that General Apathy is a G. Love fan, and I'm curious to see who else is, and if there is some music connection... even though they're completely different styles.  I'd also like to note eric hutchinson, who is a piano player and guitarist, has Ben Folds and G. Love as his influences on his myspace, and he sounds like a sort of mix between them... interesting that he has those two and not many others on the list.  So of course, my question is... Do you like G. Love?  Do you think there is a musical connection, even though there is nothing similar about them?  Or do you think i'm crazy?  and is it possible that this only applies to americans... and the brits think different?

General Board / Ben Folds Cover Art (extremely cheesey school project)

this is something i just made up for a school project where we needed to write lyrics to a song and make the lyrics about respiration and photosynthesis.  don't laugh, it's cheesey.

Sometimes I get the feeling
I need to give energy
To the heterotroph ones
An autoroph like me
a plant, a tree and algae
can use the sun

Adenosine triphosphate
is the energy I need to make
most cells i know
greate ATP from foods like
glucose, lipids and protein

I sat here in the sunlight
outside our new apartment
Until the usn went down
Then the light energy transferred
back inside my cell to the
chlorophyll molecule

All i know is that i need
to try to trap light energy
I need to produce O2 gas
so i can help the animals

6-C-O-2 and water
turn in to energy
They form glucose and oxygen
That’s what heterotrophs need

Help me build high energy
The calvin cycle needs
to be lighten

6-C-O-2 and water
turn in to energy
They form glucose and oxygen
That’s what heterotrophs need

Adenosine triphosphate
is the energy I need to make
most cells i know
greate ATP from foods like
glucose, lipids and protein

All i know is what I need
H20 and Light Energy
And also It helps if i’m
Warm with heat
I feel

Let’s make oxygen, Let’s make oxygen

Hey everyone,
This will probably sound really dumb, but i don't quite understand how some things, like ben's keytar, are "controllers"... like what does a controller need to make specific sounds?
Is ben's nord lead 2 a standalone synth, meaning all you need is it, and an amp?  or do you need something else to plug it into?  and how does he change the sounds, are there all specific knobs for it?  and what were the other two synths he used on the myspace performance?  i liked the one specifically that he used in the jam in the intro.  and how does a korg microkorg work?  i like death cab for cutie alot, and they apparently use that as their only piano instrument on stage (according to their gear section on their site).  So are these all standalone synths, or do you need to upload some sort of information into them, or do you just customize the sound?  I only have a korg digital piano and it works pretty simply with an amp, so i don't understand how "controllers" work.

thanks to anyone who has any info.  it's just been bugging me i have no idea how any of that works.

General Board / Random song- is it ben?

General Board / EP videos on
« on: November 05, 2006, 10:55:48 AM »
Now, this may just be me, but i can't seem to figure out something.

Everytime i go back and watch the videos, i feel like something's different, like they added more, or theres something that wasn't there before.  For example, when i watched today, it seemed liek there was more footage of "time" in one video, and tere was some film in the car that i've never seen.  Also, the video of the strings section seems to be extended, which i don't remember from before either.  is it just me or are they like, changing these videos slightly and replacing them?

and how was everyone's week?

I think it would be a good idea for everyone to pitch in what's diferent from the old EP versions of the songs compared to the new versions... and I mean specifically... here's a few i came up with

LTLWWYA- Has strings (Obviously), Has Backup vocals (not sure if it did the first time?)
Adelaide- Boomier Bass throughout the song
Still- Hidden "Bitches"
Bruised- All around clearer recording, plus redone piano solo towards the end
Dog-  No more Frally, sounds less bassy on the piano (left hand doesn't sound as loud)
Songs of Love- Tack piano, less strings, echo

General Board / The Blue Boards are too much.
« on: August 24, 2006, 08:06:45 PM »
I went there the other day for the first time in months, and all i hear was how much everyone hated rent a cop, rediculous offtopic thoughts, and how much everyone hates solo ben.  is there any good part to those boards?  suburbs rock.  i just htink it's a shame that a board with that many users is sorta a waste as far as information.
