News / Matt Lucas interviews Ben in NME!
« on: July 13, 2005, 01:25:43 AM »
IT'S A DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD! Hell yeah! Titled "Little Britain vs. Big Ben" with the header "yeah, but, no, but, really, but leave off! Comedy superstar Matt Lucas chats to his piano-tinkling indie idol Ben Folds".

There's a kick ass pic of Ben and Matt in Ben together (mmmmm) and questions about Shatner, Bitches Aint Shit, influences etc etc. NME, all is forgiven.

News / .Com picked out in The Guardian

I think there's a Ben fan working at the Guardian, what with all the mentions recently!

"The picture pages are a reminder of how much Folds looks like Homer Simpson when he has flashbacks to when he had hair and spectacular sideburns"

Or maybe not :D Heehee

Tour Board / The 'We Should Thank Ben and the Guys' Thread!
« on: June 19, 2005, 10:59:21 AM »
Edit: As I've posted below, rather than be all over the top about, let's pretend all I actually wrote in this post was 'Hey, the fan club could be a channel people could use to thank Ben and the guys if they wanted. Individually.' :D As it is, this is what I *did* write...

You guys can shoot this idea down if you like, it's very likely that it sucks. :) But it seems that we've all been pretty hugely affected by the shows on this UK tour - each gig has had something special and memorable - and I thought it'd be kinda nice to thank Ben, Jared and Lindsey... (and subtly suggest that we'd like a return trip pretty soon...? ;) ).

The Fan Club seems to be pretty closely affiliated with The Man Himself, so why don't we get a bunch of comments together, stick em all on an email or letter and send it off to the club? I reckon there's a very high chance they'd get to read it....


Ok, I'm just a sensitive soul mourning the end of this tour, but I just thought it'd be a cool, good karma-enhancing thing to do :)

Tell me to shut up if you want....  \m/

Tour Board / Back at Christmas....?
« on: June 18, 2005, 12:54:09 PM »
Sorrry if this has been posetd elsewhere on here, but 'WelshKim' over at .com says Ben mentioned coming back to our green and pleasant land round Christmas... now that deserves a "  \m/ " if anything does!

General Board / Me and Ben in NME :)
« on: November 24, 2004, 01:45:20 PM »
Alright guys!

Heehee, yes - go to page 15 of today's NME, look at the 'and another thing' section, and find my email - an iccle message to Ben (partly!). I'm not from Timperley, though it says I am...! Sorry to brag, but its not often you see our guy's name in the NME :D

General Board / Hey guys!
« on: May 25, 2003, 06:00:33 AM »
I am SUCH a lurker round here, its terrible! Sorry :P This board rocks- its so nice to have a UK perspective on our lil redneck.

Anyhoo, there is a point to this (other than boosting eveyone's egos) - I read here a while ago that Ben said about doing some UK festivals; has anything come of that? I'm something of Ben Folds virgin and (to stretch the metaphor too far) i'm ready to take the relationship that one step further.

Any info will be greatfully received, y'all!

News / Folds, Kweller, Lee and.... Affleck?
« on: May 27, 2003, 06:04:32 AM »
Hey - just thought you'd all like to read this from the May issue of Rolling Stone (I'm sorry if this has already been posted, and its on .org - but just in case!):

'All About the Benjamins

"The whole idea was like a Scooby-Doo thing" says Ben Lee, describing his bizarro new Crosby, Stills and Nash-style collaboration with fellow singer-songwriters Ben Kweller and Ben Folds. "It was so crazy, it might just work". After touring Australia, The Bens now have big dreams of approaching Ben Harper - or Ben Affleck for their video. As Lee says, "It's an enviable position, to be a Ben." '

There's a lovely pic too of the three as they (and I quote) "monkey around"!
