Ben's friends have been writing musicals - so hopefully that's inspiring. (Sara B and Tim Minchin notably, and Josh Groban just starred in one as well).

I saw a one act play entirely based on Annie Waits way way way back in like 2006 at a college theater conference. I've been dreaming of one ever since.

Ohhh lord I'm glad to hear that he's decided to retire BAS again. Got it nearly every night in August in Georgia. Will be happy to NOT hear it next month in Florida.

Some neat rare things! And Rock Star in the soundcheck is a great treat :)

The company also has said via twitter that there's no plan for a color variant

I actually listened to supersunnyspeedgraphic on the way to work today, cause I too always choose the EPs themselves. But the fact that this vinyl is coming out....

I liked it more than I remembered. I still hate the Bitches Ain't Shit reprise being attached to Still (and not a true hidden track). But I liked the orchestrations better than how my hackles must have gone up in 06.

Just back from my Luckiest VIP.

Had a blast - but a bit pricey of course - worth it at a GA venue... and I got to hear Protection, Sports & Wine, Away When You Were Here, and Hospital Song..... of course we had Not the Same and Kate as well, but some real great requests from my co-attendees.

We're pretty active on Twitter these days. Unfortunately the world of Message Boards has gone the way of the DoDo.

I hope so. I remember an interview in 2012/13 where BF5 said they were gonna make another record and that didn't happen.

Bummer on the songs not being full, but I went medium grade VIP at a General Admission show this tour because of it being, well, General Admission, but the 239 price value being outside of my budget.... because I'm going to 6 shows. OH GOD I HAVE A PROBLEM

Idk if now that Dave Cobb runs the place if they let you take tours, but it used to be you could tour that studio. Otherwise all you'll see is the outside of a building. Otherwise all I can think of is the Exit/In; the venue that the Way to Normal songs were debuted at.

I may be crazy, but not THAT crazy

EDIT: I lied. I am that crazy. Doing it.


Which level?!


And I feel you. I am doing one of the Luckiest levels of the GULP 6 shows I bought tickets to today.

I was only supposed to buy for the 3 in Florida. Somehow I ended up with the 3 in Georgia too.
Nice, I'm just doing the 1 show in Vancouver. I went for the AMAA.  I scrolled through the meet & greet photos from 2016 (someone posted a link on Reddit): https://cid.smugmug.com/Ben-Folds-2016/ and was tempted by the intimate numbers.  Looks like only 12 individuals at the Toronto show!  Fortunately my job is decent enough that I can not feel too too guilty to do this as a one-time splurge.

I happened to be plotting a weekend trip back home in August, which would be about a $300 flight, so basically I'm doing this show in lieu of that trip, ha ha. My family understands. ;D

LOL.

I laugh. Because. I just did the same thing. Hahahahahahahahah

I feel you on that!

I'm a crazy lady and will drive 8 hours each way if necessary. :P

Price Ranges in the US at least

AMAA: 270
Luckiest: 150
Regular Ticket: 50


I've never done either of the upgrades - because I'd rather go to three shows at 50 instead of one show at 150

Paul McCartney - Don't Change Your Plans
I really feel this song would fit his voice. It has the same kind of bouncy melody of many of McCartney's own tunes (I am, however, imagining a young McCartney singing the song, not modern day)


Hum, what could current Macca cover? I'd like to hear that heartfelt voice off of Early Days on something like Still Fighting It or Evaporated. Could make it hurt well.



Brandi Carlile just released an album of her friends covering one of her albums straight through. It'd be awesome to see a Whatever & Ever or Suburbs cover album with people Ben's friends with (Weird Al, Amanda Palmer, Ben Lee, Ben Kweller, Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban, Regina Spektor, Eef Barezelay, Ryan Lerman, Kate Miller-Heidke, William Shatner, Ringo, etc)
