Does anyone have a good quality of this song? All I have is a crappy live version, but I really really really love it.

Uh, thanks, i guess....if you can help, that is.

General Board / Birthday Poster....Quickly Folks!
« on: September 02, 2006, 08:30:36 PM »
This thread is by request for Ben's Birthday Poster.

We're making a poster for Ben to send on his birthday. As you know, his b-day is on the 12th, so we gotta get moving. People are already claiming letters, so get yours fast!

The whole idea is to take a letter from "Happy Birthday Ben!", and take a picture of yourself holding the letter. Then, email it over to Allison ( so she can make the poster out of it.

Claim away suburbanites!

Please please please try to get your picture in by the 6th, and the 7th by the absolute latest. And like Allison said, be creative. Make faces, dress up....HAVE FUN!

Well, I was just thinking, and we all know that Ben's 40th birthday is coming up in less than two weeks.
And basically I had this idea that all of his fans (us) put something together and send it to him in hopes that he enjoys it (which he totally will). I just wanted to know if this is something that we could put our heads together to create or am I just talking out of my ass. Because I believe that this could be spetacular, and if it means that I have to organize and take my own time to accomplish or whatever, I'm most definitely willing to.
So, what do you say?

Let's just say that I thought of the idea while reading about a fan documentary some people are putting together for Elliott Smith, and it's really catching on. I think something for Ben is well-deserved for all the hard work he has put out for us in the last so-many years.
Any help and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I like watching YouTube videos of people playing Ben songs, and this is the best I've seen yet. Some things are off, but he does really good. Lullabye is my favorite he does.

I hope this isn't just another lousy post by myself, but I think people on here might enjoy it.

Musical discovery / Dispatch

Pretty neat band. They sound sort of like old Guster (Parachute and Happy Frappy)Too bad they broke up, but found this neat little fact about their last show...

"But the concert to top all concerts was The Last Dispatch, a free musical farewell at the Hatch Shell in Boston in July 2004. When the three college friends decided to call it quits, over 110,000 fans from 25 countries mobbed the unsuspecting venue, making it the largest independent music event in history (outdrawing Phish's swan song by 50,000 and the multi-band fest Bonnaroo by almost 20,000). "

I like this band.
This song by them is pretty cool. It's called Your Ex-Lover Is Dead, and it starts out a bit weird, but it's my favorite song right now. I love it.

I hope you like it....

News / SuperSpeedGraphic?

Well, Chudley beat me to it over at the .org, but I'll be the first to post it on the Suburbs, I guess.
According to this:
Ben will be releasing a SuperSpeedGraphic....I wonder what that is.

General Board / Fred Jones video

I found this video for Fred Jones on YouTube, and it's actually really good. It definitely brings out the emotion in the song. Good stuff.

News / Ben gets interviewed on a podcast
« on: July 12, 2006, 09:32:11 PM »
Don't think this has been mentioned yet, but I was searching through some Podcasts on iTunes tonight and found one that had interviewed Ben last November.
Here's the link to it. It's number 13 on the list (second from the bottom). It's free. The interview with Ben starts at about 16:39 into it. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but it seems interesting so far. Enjoy!
