[EDIT - Official Suburbs link: ]


Tour Board / Milwaukee 9/18/11 Rock the Green festival

Awesome but wet short show! Ben only had an hour set, and it started raining halfway through which made it interesting since it was an outdoor mid-afternoon show.

All u can eat
Annie Waits
Bitch went nutz (rare shaker version, according to Ben)
Still fighting it
Raindrops Keep Falling (on the piano.... before this song is when the rains came)
Stevens last night (with drum solo)
Rocking the Suburbs
Jokes (piano too wet to play, so Ben told a couple jokes not appropriate for a family show)  
Best imitation (no piano, it was getting quite wet and it was a rental so he didn't want to wreck it)
Bitches ain't shit (no piano, with audience)
Not the same (with wet piano, since he had no idea what else to do)

The Fray had a long set after Ben but with the rain and wind, and being with my wife and kids, we decided to pack it in. So did a LOT of other people. Not sure if it was entirely due to the rain, but a little part of me likes to think Milwaukee has a lot more Ben fans than I think it does.  \m/

General Board / It's all downhill from here

According to Google Trends, Ben's popularity peaked early in '05, and it's been nothing but downhill since. Except for a little something in late 2008....

This is a fun little thing.

General Board / Selling a autographed Ben CD. ME??
« on: March 28, 2009, 06:15:34 PM »
WTF is wrong with me?

I usually wouldn't do this, and didn't really mean to but I bought the wrong Ben Folds File CD. So I ordered the CD/DVD and planned to sell the CD only version on eBay after the concert. But. Didn't expect to get it signed AT the concert. Really. But now it's up on eBay:

I have tons and tons of autographed stuff from Ben (and my WTN signed by the band, and my Reunion ticket signed by the 5, and my RTS signed by Snuzz) and have never even THOUGHT of selling any of it. Even my duplicates.

But this has to go. Need to make back what I spent on the correct File.

Am I sick?

Hrm. Got excited because I forgot this was coming out, and looked on Amazon and found they had ONE LEFT, so I ordered it. Figured since it was $35 it was the CD/DVD that I heard about. Came out on March 10th.

BUT, turns out (since it arrived today) that I got the Japanese Import CD. With a cool lyrics packet in Japanese. Goes good with my Okinawa Times paper that my Japanese headlight came in the I ordred for my car last month.

Anyways.... no DVD tracks. No videos. What the heck did I order?

YDKM, Free Coffee, Dr. Yang, Cologne (clean version? wtf), all available. Free Coffee actually sounds better coming out of a cell phone speaker, kinda like it does on the vinyl.

I would buy them but I made my own, thankyouverymuchverizon.

Did anyone find a way to crib this from Ben's MySpace? It was funny as f*ck and I want to hear it again.


Transcription / [Lyrics] Free Coffee (WTN album version)

Not much different than the live version, if at all (depending on the show you were at/heard bootleg from)


Called in sick one day
Stepped out my front door
Squinted up at the sky
And strapped on my backpack
Got into a van
And when I returned I had
Ex-wives and children
Boxes of photographs

And they gave me some food
And they didn't charge me
And they gave me some coffee
But they didn't charge me

And when I was broke I needed it more
But now that I'm rich they give me coffee

Eating an icecream cone
Texting with my thumbs
Flipping off the assh*le
Who pulled into my lane
Life could be longer than it's often cracked up to be
We all get new cells every seven years
I feel seven today
It's a good day to die again

Now they save me my place
Over there in the corner
And I never get tickets
Yeah I only get warnings

But when I was broke
I needed it more
And now that I'm rich
I get free coffee
