Half.com is another place where they can be cheap.  I got my collection of EPs from Amazon and Half.com.

Ben Folds disappointed me.  He honestly didn't do to much to show off his "amazing piano skills," IMHO.

Even though he has God-like powers to break the rules for anything, I don't think, for someone that's put out an a capella album, he should've done it here.

I agree they should have done Girl.  \m/

O lawdy, that girl has no idea what she's doing.  She's worse than David Hasselhoff.

I wrote down some of them before becoming too entranced to bother doing so further.

Free Coffee
Annie Waits
Dr. Yang (he virtually led into this one at the end of some song; IIRC, it was AW)
Boxing
Fred Jones
Lullabye
Best Imitation of Myself
One Down
Morgan Davis, or "That Big Gay Broadway Musical"
Landed
YDKM (w/ kate miller heidke)
Effington
Kate
Zak & Sara
Still fighting it
Picture Window
Belinda

(requests)
Bitches Ain't Shit
Such Great Heights (screwed up the beginning lyrics and improv'ed them for a bit by cursing himself)
Freebird/Shippensburg improv
Not the Same
Army - Didn't explain the to the audience how to do the band part, so he started the section "Alright Shippensburg, show me what the hell you got!"
-he went off the stage at this point (concert being over), but came back because he felt bad for not playing these that were requested:
"Alright, I'll play these but then I need to get the f*ck outta here."
Underground
Narcolepsy
The Luckiest

(I think that's the right order.)

He also went into a improv about his green tea taking an hour some where at the end of one of the songs (I think it was before BAS, IIRC; but the improv later went on after BAS.)

The show was pretty awesome.  I brought alnog two friends of mine who enjoyed it even moreso than I.  I'd love to see him live again.

I felt like such a nerd for knowing all the songs by heart (excluding Belinda).  \m/

Of course the one forum I didn't check.  :P

EDIT: Here's Sepharite's rip in MP3 format.  Converted via SUPER and I edited out the little ending jingle with Audacity.

Hey, I'm Zeek and I've been lurking here for months and I'm a large fan of Ben Folds/Five.  I ripped the audio myself the other day (in the lovely compressed MP3 format)

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?hzi0m1wky2m
(edit: there's a difference in quality compared to my mp3 veruses Sepharite's AAC.  I did it via recording stereo mix in Audacity since I couldn't get the flv to download.)
I also attempted to write out the lyrics, but there's parts that I have no idea what Ben is saying (as noted by the series of question marks):

(based on the demo recording)

She checked into the hospital New Year's Eve
nothing to be done about that
rainbows, daffodils shes not naive
symbolism's all crap

there's a big picture window in their room, on the ward with a view over paraliment hill
but the view offers more joy than
they can offored
when there's this much pain to kill

you know what hope is
hope is a bastard
hope is a liar
a cheat and a tease
hope comes near you
kick it's backside
got no place in days like these

and dust to darkness surrenders to color
as the fireworks strike the sky
and their window gives them the prettiest picture
the useless luck makes here want to cry
then it turns midnight
the sh*tty all year spend (?????)
another mongis (?????) or some sparkling wine
she nearly gets into the moment, but he'll still be sick in 2009

you know what hope is
hope is a bastard
hope is a liar
a cheat and a tease
hope comes near you
kick it's backside
got no place in days like these

just as she's thinking of pulling the blind down
a rocket burst in front of her eyes
the city lit up like a crown outta London (????)
and she tries and fails to stop the spirit's lies

you know what hope is
hope is a bastard
hope is a liar
a cheat and a tease
hope comes near you
kick it's backside
got no place in days like these

you know what hope is
hope is a bastard
hope is a liar
a cheat and a tease
hope comes near you
kick it's backside
got no place in days like these

Any help on deciphering his slurs would be appreciated.  I looked elsewhere on the internets, but can't seem to find the full set of lyrics.
