General Board / Re: What Ben should cover

I'd like to hear him cover a Cake song.  I remember reading that "Comfort Eagle" is one of his favorites, though I think a keytar version of "The Distance" would be much more rad.

I've lurked and anonymously pillaged your bandwidth for about a year, so I  figured I should become a full-fledged suburbanite.  This meme seemed like an appropriate introduction.

1. What was the first BF/F song you ever heard?
I saw the video for Army in Gadzook’s ages ago, but it took me a few years before I could find out who did the “Chik-Fil-A” song

2. In what order did you obtain the BF/F CDs you own?
WAEA, Rockin’ the Suburbs, self-titled, TUBORM, Naked Baby Photos, Speed Graphic, Sunny 16, The Bens, Super D, Fear of Pop

3. When was the first time you saw BF/F live?
October 3, 2004 at West Virginia University.  My friend and I got lost, so we missed a good 45 minutes of the show, but what we saw kicked booty.  It was a ten hour round trip, and I was still the first person in my Media Lit class the next morning.

4. How many times have you seen BF/F live?
once, despite begging and pleading on my part for several more

5. Most recent show?
see #3

6. Other bands or musicians you love:
Elvis Costello, Ben Kweller, Ben Lee, Rancid, Ozma, The Specials, The Aquabats, Groovie Ghoulies, Ramones, Clash Dead Kennedys, The Cure, Richard Cheese… several more, but I’ll stop before this turns into a novel

7. Do you have a Ben related website?
not yet, though I’m hoping to throw one together this summer

8. Favorite member of the five including Ben?
I would say “I love them all equally” but International Orange broke up the day before I was supposed to see them in concert, so Robert Sledge burned that bridge

9. Favorite member of Ben's touring band excluding Ben? the maraca

10. Have you ever met Ben/had something signed by Ben? How many times? No – I think I would pass out before I could

11. Did you contribute to Crystal's pressie to Ben?
not to my knowledge

12. Where did you grow up? Where do you live?
I’ve lived in various parts of West Virginia all my life

13. What do you do? (student, profession)
college sophomore by day, maverick DJ by night

14. Farthest you've ever travelled to see BF/F?
the opposite end of the state

15. How long have you been a BF/F fan?
about four years

16. Is Ben or BFF your favorite musician/band, or one of many?
definitely my favorite

17. Five of your favorite BF/F songs:

Last Polka, Best Imitation of Myself, The Secret Life of Morgan Davis, Fired, There’s Always Someone Cooler Than You

18. Females: You want to be Frally, true or false.
*sigh* if only….

19. Your favorite B/FF song at this very moment. ONLY ONE. We all know it could change at any second.
Half Asleep

20. Working on a theory here. Did/do your high school activities include marching band or cheerleading? Any others you care to mention?
marching band (trumpet) and orchestra (French horn).  I was also editor of my school newspaper for two years and a feature editor of my yearbook.  Saving chess club, I had all of my geek bases covered (though if we’d had a chess club, I would’ve joined it)

21. What did you/are you/will you study in college?
Electronic Media Management, which is a fancy way of saying the non-news anchor side of radio and television

22. Single? Attached? Married? Kids?

23. If you could have dinner with a character from a BF/F song, who would it be?
Morgan Davis, since he could probably take me to a nice restaurant, what with all the money he makes dealing drugs

24. Why did you choose your screen name?
I used to be into the zine/DIY scene but I’ve slacked off in recent years.  Also, it saves me the confusion of trying to remember two usernames (since I use this at the .org as well)

25. Too many questions in this list or not enough?
not enough… come on, where’s the “what did you have for breakfast?” or “if you were an abstract feeling, what would you be and why?”  Geez  ;)
