Since this is a random discussion, it seems the ideal place to spread the news - today is Bruce Campbell's birthday! Yes, the man himself (next to Mr Folds that is) is one year older - 47 i think. A salute, please, for THE GREATEST ACTOR OF OUR GENERATION!

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: johnny_ultimate on June 22, 2005, 12:56:13 PM
Bruce Campbell is the legendary star of the Evil Dead films and numerous other cameo appearances - notable role, Snooty Usher in Spiderman 2. Watch Bubba Ho Tep to see his brilliance!

And yes, hopefully random ramblings the sequel will be as successful as the original. Let's just hope we can sign the original cast back  ;)

Je ne comprend pas! It seems that I can post, but other people can not?

I did nothing to halt the thread. Maybe it reached it's pre-assigned randomness limit and suffered critical yabbering shutdown?

I fully endorse this new, random thread.

I haven't a clue about the swimming thing... guess it was something spcial he had to do just to proove he could swim.

Its so hot over here!! I'm lovely and brown... haha. I generally don't go red but now I've said that I will  8)... I don't really like the sun anyway.  :-\

Perhaps a memorial or a 'best of' compilation of the random rant is in order. we can even sell it on one of those dodgy time life tv ads that you see on TV.

Act now and get a second dvd free - by free we mean 19.99.

Well, I'm sorta new here, and definately new to this topic...Just thought I'd pop in and say hi, and hope my ramblings can stand up against all the ramblings of the regular ramblers.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Carolyn on June 25, 2005, 07:00:53 AM
nice one hanny! hehe. Hope it goes well  :)

I'm so incediby tired... went to a leaving party last night which involved the cinema then just going out to this place nearby. Got back to their house at like 4 or 5 in the morning then went to the park till about 6:30 hehe. But I've had 5 hours sleep today so I feel ok. I'm never doing that again...

I'm off to centre parcs on Monday come to think about it... hehe.

lol that was random...

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: johnny_ultimate on June 25, 2005, 11:24:10 AM
To continue with the randomness i just made the best discovery of my young life : Almost Famous - the unbelievably rare Untitled edition - for a tenner in HMV! Needless to say, myself and my mate each bought a copy!

And i'm still waiting for record store to get in copies of two of the Eps (i got the last of the other ones in stock!) so i can recieve more Ben related goodness. Tick tock tick tock....

have fun Carolyn!

thanks for the well wishes people, i got red roses tonight, i mean wow...how many 17 year old guys do that! im content, hope it lasts style...

...and dont hmv charge like £20 per ep?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: johnny_ultimate on June 28, 2005, 02:02:58 AM
Yeah HMV charge 22 euro or something for a single EP (even with import charges id say theyd make a profit at 10 or 12?). Although they do have the Bens one too, which is really hard to get. Dunno if its worth 20 euro though... So i ordered them off recordstore.co.uk, which is the official sony music one... er.. i think. Still waiting....

Post by: malemiddleclassandwhite on June 28, 2005, 07:52:30 AM
www.attackedbyplastic.com is the place to get EPs, surely...  Or have you tried that?

Hanny, you're clearly onto a winner there.  I think I was 20 before I ever bought a girl roses (and they were still only yellow ones - I didn't like her that much).  Silly of me really, as it's minimum effort, maximum reward.

Well, I had my last one today. She was a beautiful little whore called Economics paper 2 and, as well as being pretty easy, was only an hour long.

Paper one, on the other hand (makes sucking in air sound and shakes head slightly). Let's just say, we got screwed by the exam board.

Random observation that is best befitted in this thread. Whenever I check "who's online" there always seems to be some guest "printing off X Topic"; topics which are often far from that interesting or far removed from spam. Meanings or explanations to this?

Edit: There they go again...

Edit 2: And again. And topics from like 3 years ago?

Three letters for you Nick: F  B  I

Or alternatively, two letters and a number: M  I  5

So, careful what you say.  It's when they do an unknown action that it gets really sinister.

A holiday of lazyness ahead of me now. Well I hope i'm not too lazy, need to do some things i suppose (like go for runs). But I love having no work  :D
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on July 07, 2005, 04:46:48 AM
I got loads of CDs in New York; I finally picked up "Has Been", I got two Counting Crows albums ("Across a wire" and "Films about ghosts"), a Rufus Wainwright ("Want one" and not half as bad as I thought), an Elliott Smith ("Kill rockstars"), a Guster ("Lost and gone forever") and a Ben Lee ("Breathing tornados"). The good thing was, the company that paid for me to go gave me $20 a day (for 4 days) to spend on whatever I wanted. Therefore, they paid for four of the CDs (so as long as I liked 3 of them, I hadn't wasted any money!)

To make things even better, when I got home, my Archers of Loaf and (another) Ben Lee CDs arrived!!! Yipee!!!

Where's my fan club stuff?!?

Terrorists suck and they suck it out the back way. I mean, how frickin' dumb can you get?

They are not much loved. How sad. Harking back to an RE lesson topic at school in about 2001 I'd have no qualms about killing a terrorist for the greater good. Strange little topic but quite topical too.

Also, no QUEEN today! Ruddy terrorists don't appreciate good music.

I found a nice MP3 player with 20GB of memory for just £100 the other day (granted, it was the size of a housebrick). Naturally, I piled all of my Ben tracks on, along with every other piece of music I possess. I put it on random play. It plays one Counting Crows song, then 50 Ben songs. It ONLY randomly plays Ben songs!!!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: NickD on July 08, 2005, 06:16:03 PM
Cor blimey. That's quite a ratio of Ben:Non-Ben songs.

Also, to bring it up again  :o why do random guests keep reading topics that are years old and printing them off? And not even interesting topics. I'll say it again, the powers-that-be are compiling a suburbs database to incriminate us all.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: NickD on July 14, 2005, 01:43:56 PM
Just a thought as regards to London bombings and 9/11. It irks me to hear people say, "Only 50 people, hundred of thousands die everyday" etc. It's got nothing to do with numbers. One person killed is terrible enough.  As regards to comments like "Where is the 2 minute silence for the victims in Iraq etc?" it's totally justified "making a fuss" over the 50 people who died last week. Not only is it both a home issue and an internal shock for people, but it's something, that in our society becomes much more important in what issues are at stake than mere numbers.

More political garb. I don't like ranting so I don't know where this came from. Again, just a passing thought after I heard a few comments on the news.

In other news, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is looking as sweet as a Cadbury's Creme Egg.

Gosh, I haven't been on here for over a week.  I've missed you chaps.

Hanny etc, I've got tickets for Brixton in December (but it's the day before my girlfriend's birthday, so I'm not sure if she'll be up for going and it's up to her really - we'll see.  If not I'll try and flog them on here).

What else...  Got a new job - researcher for AQA (Any Question Answered: you text any question to 63336 (it costs a quid) (EVERYONE'S doing it, darling) and we text you the answer (I say "we" - I haven't actually started yet).  It's all quite cool, but possibly a bit craply paid).

Re. yesterday's "bombs", I seem to be reading in papers things along the lines of "stoicism is being replaced with fear and frustration among Londoners".  I'm sorry, but that's f*cking bollocks.  Everyone I've spoken to is still as chirpy as ever, and a few little fireworks going "phut" aren't going to change that.  You're still far more likely to be hit by a car, or win a million on the lottery, than be anywhere near a terrorist attack in this country.

I agree with MMCW - Londoners resolve has not been and will not be broken.

And now, one person has been shot in Stockwell, South London.  1 down, 3 to go? (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4706787.stm)

J...proud to be a Londoner

Charlie, if you're working for AQA, can you, y'know, change my Science and product design grades?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: NickD on July 22, 2005, 03:45:46 PM
AQA sounds like an interesting romp. Londoners have definitely got the conscious resolve to not be put off. So to restate. it hasn't been broken at all and can't imagine it being broken. Similarly proud, it's a city showing its colours right now.

Hanny, big fan here. Real escapist, 1st class made and just brilliantly entertaining movies. They're not for everyone but I can't believe you've just started watching the trilogy. Be sure to catch the extended editions.

Alex,

sorry mate, it's the other AQA - www.63336.com - not the exam board.  Hmm, no marks to you for not reading the information carefully.  Think I'll be revising your grades downwards.  Not that I can.

Hanny, you're SOOO behind the times.  LOTR is like, so three years ago.   ;)

Post by: NickD on July 24, 2005, 06:21:19 AM
That's great news for you. Very all-out. I doubt he'll do much Europe-ing. He didn't on his official tour and this Xmas visit was supposed to be a "one off". I'm surprised he did three dates. Actually, I'm surprised he did one.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Carolyn on July 24, 2005, 08:54:33 AM
Ok thanx, I didn't think he would but my dad says we should wait a few days to see if he was before I got tickets. It would be easier, what with living in Belgium, if he came somewhere like Germany but o well, thats not gonna stop me going.

Rufus is fabulous!  I saw him a couple of months ago in Cambridge, and he and the entire band stripped down to their underwear.  He was sporting a tiara, glittery turquoise jock strap, a "Miss Cambridge" sash, blue and white stripey pop-socks, red patent leather killer heels and fairy wings.  You know, very conservative.  It was absolutely fantastic.  Enjoy the gig (assuming you're going!) ;D

twil be crap when the bf goes away for a few days well a week then i see him for a day then he goes for another 2 weeks and the 1 week into that i go away for 2 weeks, so its long time, enjoying next couple of days with him :) i have a feeling others would view my life as simplistic at the minute...

general question - do all men have the art of lateness or is it just some?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on August 04, 2005, 01:05:04 AM
No, women just have the art of earliness :P

It depends. I show up on time to practically everything (school, meetings, etc.), save meeting my friends and doing stuff for my parents (because I know I can get away with it).

I call it the art of laziness, because we're not really late, we've just been lying around watching TV when we're supposed to have been getting ready (or whatever).
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Hanny on August 04, 2005, 02:05:22 AM
yes that sounds about right, lol, "i got distracted cutting my toenails into patterns" at least i get honesty lol, that was from the other day but admitedly most original one ive heard, change of plan now anyway, going to his @ 12, bliss is its a 3minute walk lol, guna  have a week without him after today :( explained it all in previous post, tis poo, just guna sort my room, work and catch up with mates i guess.

women arent that early! besides arent they traditionally the ones that are late at the altar?

You're right - I got it the wrong way round. But women (in my family at least) have to start getting ready about 3 hours before they go out. Then, when they arrive late, they blame the bloke because he was "Watching the snooker instead of getting ready" (no matter where I'm going, I spend a maximum of five minutes getting ready - unless I have to gel my hair back for a play or something, in which case up to 20!!!)

Have you ever noticed that when you spend ages tidying up, you can never find anything?

Fresh out of year 11 and into sixth form ;D

Exam results come out on the 25th. I just couldn't be bothered this year. I think I'll have scraped a pass in most things, hopefully got good grades in Drama and History. As long as I pass 4 subjects, I'm good to go because I passed graphics (did it a year early) with a C. Unfortunately, I took up Product Design (well, the school forced me) after doing graphics and rushed all my coursework on the last night. The exam wasn't too bad. I just wanna know what I got so I can:

A) Celebrate

B) Smile, content in the knowledge that although I only just passed, I beat my ex-girlfriend

C) Take the toaster for a swim

Sounds like you had fun!

As for being thick, well, I know I'm not thick (winner of the National Academy of Gifted and Talented youth business competition ;D), but this is why I see exams as being dumb - if you don't know the stuff on the exam, you get graded down, but itdoesn't mean you don't know loads of other stuff from the syllabus that didn't appear on the exam. I got lucky with science, I think, because I revised everything and found the papers easy. Maths, I found difficult, as I did English Lit. (I hate how they ask us to compare poetry and stories - it can't/shouldn't be done because poems and stories are art!!! Plus, it's hard. And boring). Economics paper 1 was bad - the syllabus was very vague this year and one tiny section we hardly covered accounted for the whole exam. Mr. Hails was mad. I reckon some examiners are gonna be found dead in their beds...

Me and Dave intend to spend that afternoon jamming and writing songs for our EP which we hope to have written and hopefully recorded by the end of the year. We are a parody tribute band and all of our songs are parodies of other bands' music (some are just songs in the styles of other bands' music, some are just all out piss-takes). I'm working on a piano based Folds parody called "Sometimes it hurts when I pee". I have no idea why I chose this title, but it just popped into my head last night when I was walking the dog (who, incidentally, wouldn't pee!!!).

Ah lucky! We get about 12 or 13 new people. But we lost nearly 20 at the end of last year. We lost some idiots aswell so its all good but also lost some best friends. Thats the big problem with living in Belgium, everyone comes and goes so much (except me). Our year get on though.

Sorry, I was gone for a few days. New York is wicked awesome. In New York, I first experienced the musical wonders that are:

- Rufus Wainwright
- Elliott Smith
- Guster

Plus I got a Ben Lee CD, 2 Counting Crows CDs and "Has Been". Not a bad trip. Appart from those bastards I went with. God, I hated them.

Fanta in Belgium is noticeably different to that in Merry Olde England. It's WAY more addictive. You know "Slurm" off of Futurama? I imagine that "Slurm" would taste like Belgian Fanta (not that Belgian Fanta tastes like it was squeezed out of a giant space worm's ass. Geez!!! Take the compliment!!! :P).

I also like Belgian seashells. Yum!!!

Even after seeing that episode 323524 times, I still seriously want a Slurm every time.

I reckon Australian Fanta (Orange, not any of these new damn flavours) is pretty tasty.  Nothing beats Lift though.  FACT.

I won the trip on my business competition. We were a team of the 5 brightest kids in the school. Unfortunately, "bright"ness does not reflect ability to work and I got lumbered with all the work. I won us that trip. Seriously, I did all the work.

The CDs I got were "Across a wire" and "Films about ghosts" (I had all of the others). Gotta love them Crows.

Those are the main ones worth owning, Hanny. FAG (ha!!!) is a best-of and AAW is a double live album. It has an almost studio-esque feel to the Mr. Jones recording and Rain King, both of which have been slowed down, which neither improves the songs or makes them worse - the songs are still masterpieces, but in a different way... Hmmm...

Nothing really on FAG (ha!!!) that makes it worth getting if you have the others, appart from 4 extra tracks. It's good for listening to in the car.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on August 19, 2005, 04:10:14 AM
Rock on!!!

4 Bs is pretty damn good, I reckon. My friend's brother is supposed to be really smart and, although he passed all 3 of his A-levels, he got one B and 2 Cs. I know A-levels and AS-Levels are different (well, I don't actually. I have no idea about anything regarding qualifications. I only found out what GCSEs were halfway through year 10...).

You gonna drop a subject?

I'm thinking of changing Economics for History if I don't do very well in it... I like both, but Mr. Page is a age-ist to me and won't let me take both - I have to do Geography instead of one... :(

Also taking Media Studies (we get to make a music video!!!) and Drama. Because I love drama.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Hanny on August 19, 2005, 04:37:21 AM
year 12  u do AS which are like 1/2 an a level and then A2 completes the a level so basically i have 4 half a levels, im not dropping a subject cos general studies is compulsory adn u dont really do much work, one lesson a week, kinda suprised i got a b there, but the unis wont look at general studies half the time (some do), been looking thru uni prospectus' today, tis scary...
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on August 19, 2005, 06:51:27 AM
The one thing to do with Unis, is don't be put off from applying by fear of rejection. Apply to some you'll know you'll get in (local ones that accept anyone ;)), as well as some big ones like Oxford and Cambridge, the kind you don't expect to get in. That way:

- If you get in, awesome
- If you don't, you weren't expecting to, anyway ;)

This lady from Oxford told me that a lot of people just don't apply because they're scared of rejection. I think I replied something like "Lazy f*cks...".
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Hanny on August 19, 2005, 09:02:33 AM
lol yeh well oxford and cambridge is no point, theyre too far away and im not an all As candidate, which to be fair is what u need for there, durham, newcastle and sunderland are my locals and durham its ABB and newcastle BBB so u know theyre kinda high, sunderland doesnt do the course i want...classical studies, so who knows if i cant get in i might just have to change my degree....ack, lol lovely topic

woah well done! Thats really good. I got an A in Product Design. Which is good cos I'm doing it next year!

Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on August 26, 2005, 07:12:46 AM
Good for you! I also got a C in last year's graphics (did it a year early, hence being forced to take PD).

English lit was very hard. I was suprised I got an A!!! Same with Economics.

I was basically suprised all over the board.

My PD and Science teachers, Mr. Kirk and Mr. Page, are my nemesises and both predicted me different grades to those I got. Kirk predicted an A (I got a D!!!) and Page a B/C (A!!!). I hope that damages their reputations...

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on September 06, 2005, 06:57:29 AM
First day for me, only it wasn't really a day of sixth form, as all I did was enroll, then return home to my new Weird Al Yankovic CD (I ordered "Bad hair day" 'cos it was the cheapest Amazon had to offer) and League of Gentlemen DVD boxset. Then, about half an hour later, the postman dropped off two Ben Lee CDs ("Grandpaw would" and "Something to remember me by").

I watched the first episode of The LoG, then my dad took me to the piano store where we got a very nice electric one with semi-weighted keys and loads of crazy special features for £369 (or something like that). It was over budget, but the only things they had for less were pretty much crap.

Sixth form tomorrow.

EDIT: And a Fleming & John CD showed up this afternoon, too.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on September 06, 2005, 08:58:58 AM
So, how do you like Bad Hair Day? It's one of my favorites. Congrats on getting that, and your DVD boxset, and the new keyboard! Sweet!  ;D

As for me, my back hurts, I'm listening to my friend streaming audio online, and procrastinating on doing the dishes, which really need to be done. Grrr! I want to watch The Naked Gun movies that will be on TBS tonight: Naked Gun 2 1/2, and Naked Gun 33 1/3. I love Weird Al's cameos in both! hehe!

Check out the website www.raydonramblings.co.uk. even though it's pretty much empty at the moment.  Keep the Random Ramblings topic going so when I eventually get round to starting the website I can post a message telling you all to visit the site and read the absolute bollocks that I've churned out.

Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on September 11, 2005, 08:32:40 AM
So, for five long, straineous years I have toiled at Dartmouth High School for the criminally insane, being forced against my will (and the basic principles of human logic) to wear a ridiculous school uniform. For half a decade, those bastard sixth formers had mocked me and my peers with their relaxed dress code, non-compulsory P.E and ability to basically do what they wanted. Finally, I reach this stage in my education and, well, let's see how the school have managed to f*ck even these simple pleasures of life up:

- A "Smart Thursday" dress code has been introduced. This has proved ridiculously unpopular and is bound to prove unpractical as well.
- There is now, apparantly, a double session of P.E last thing on Friday afternoon.
- The time table in general does not cater for everyone; I have to take Geography, a subject I have never really done/enjoyed, because that is the only subject in block A that mildly interests me. The "block" system means I can only take 3 subjects that I want to, so no Economics. My friend Laura is also in the same mess because the school is unprepared to let her take Philosophy and Ethics.
- The first week of school, we have had no lessons. That may sound like a good thing, but the stuff we've done has been boring/useless and at least if we were having lessons, we'd have a real reason to be there. To make things even more trivial, the sessions we've been having this week have been about Revision and Job interviews. We have nothing to revise (we haven't done any work yet!!!) and we have two years until we need to be seriously thinking about job interviews.

School is not pleasing me. It's hard enough not getting to talk to Chloe during the week (time difference :(), but why do the school have to screw things up like this? This is the first year any of this shit has taken place, or at least P.E, Smart Thursday and useless first week.

On the positive side of life, I now have my Weird Al Yankovic "Al in the box" collection, plus several other lovely CDs and things. "The League of Gentlemen" is probably my new favourite show (my favourite character, aside from Tubbs, Edward and Papa Lazarou, is probably Pauline, the restart office with the pens) and my new piano is awesome. I wrote a couple of songs on there - it's really cool.

I haven't had time to do anymore drawings, which is a shame, as if I get drawings of Robert Sledge and Eddie Walker done, Snuzz is gonna get 'em to sign 'em. I'm sure Django'll sign one of him, too.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on September 12, 2005, 09:11:08 AM
I already learned!!! ;D I learned five years ago!!! ;D

First day of proper lessons. Period one and two were Geography with Mr. Lo-to-the-max (Lomax) and then we had break, before another Geography session with Miss Ganguly who miraculously felt ill and let us go after 20 minutes. Down to the common room where we spent the 30 minutes left of 3, all of 4 and lunchtime (aside from numerous bathroom breaks and me, Calum and Lynnesey sneaking into the headteacher's secretary's office to leave our anti-dress code petition - which had over half the Sixth form's marks upon it), before heading off to periods 5 and 6 in drama. Not a bad day.

Ok, yesterday I was listening to my SFS cd. Hubby comes in upon arriving home from work and says "Why do you listen to that guy? He can't even sing!" I was dumbfounded! Ben Folds, a bad singer?? Alrighty, then! I honestly wanted to say "wtf?", but I didn't. It just really threw me, because I think Ben is a wonderful singer. So, I guess I'll have to listen to my SFS cd when hubby is not around. Sometimes that man mystifies me.

Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on September 15, 2005, 04:42:08 PM
Ben's got an amazing voice. Enough said. Just as long as you know it, you'll be fine. what you should do is keep playing Ben over and over until your husband realizes he has a great voice. or not. whatever.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on September 15, 2005, 04:47:03 PM
I think, like with Al, jealousy has reared it's ugly head. Hubby also plays piano, and is darn good at it. Maybe Ben is a threat? I really don't know. But, like you said, I know Ben is a good singer, and an amazing talent. Who cares if hubby doesn't? I've let all his comments about Al roll right off my back, I can do the same if he says anything more about Ben.

One of my friends (who I'm quite sure hates me lately for no reason) said she "can't stand his whiny voice" and stuff.  So that sure confused me - Ben, whiny?  Ah well, doesn't matter, she smells.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on September 15, 2005, 10:39:23 PM

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on September 15, 2005, 11:34:30 PM
Ben - whiny? Rufus maybe... He's still awesome, though.

The truth is, most musicians I listen to, I listen to the lyrics and the music rather than the way they sing. Except for Snuzz and Adam Duritz (Counting crows) whose voices I imitate. I like all the voices, but (unless you REALLY can't sing) it shouldn't be the focus of the song.

as for the whole james blunt front, well i do like him but hes getting overplayed! i think i prefer my music to be more descreet the public wear them out, i like blunt, but yes hes one of the "lucky ones" noted by the public, im going because of mraz, but theyve moved the bloody date so duno if my bf can go now  :'( cos he goes to bloody private school after failing last yr anddoubt his mum'll let him have a day off to go to a gig, wud u if u were paying for it? lol its just shite.  but never mind...and for the record i dont find james blunt atractive personally, thats not a reason to like him in my opinion tho im sure there are others who'll readily disagree with me...then again the burbs is male dominated :P

Check out the Ask Als from yesterday:

http://www.weirdal.com/aa.htm

Al mentions his appearance with Ben on the Leno show.  ;D

My favorite is Als answer to question #3. He really put this gal in her place! And, as usual, he does a flip answer to question #5. hehe!

Hmm, it works for me....maybe you need to empty your cache and delete cookies?? If it still doesn't work, here is the question about Al's appearance, along with Al's answer:

Quote
OCTOBER 2, 2005
Gary Derrick of Mustang, Oklahoma asks: I was recently watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the tambourine player with that night’s musical guest (whom I can't really remember at the moment) looked surprisingly like you... any idea who your evil twin is?

Well, first of all, it was Jay Leno, not Conan O’Brien… and FYI, the musical guest was Ben Folds… and the guy who looked surprisingly like me was… me. But you’re absolutely right, it WAS a tambourine. The story is, Ben and I have been friends for a while (I directed one of his music videos and we’ve performed on each other’s albums). I went to see Ben when he was in concert here in Los Angeles, and afterwards we were hanging out in his dressing room. At one point he said to me, “Hey, I’m doing the Tonight Show tomorrow – you should come on the show with me and just play tambourine!” And we both laughed at what a ridiculous idea that was. Then the next morning, he called me up and said, “I just woke up from this weird fever dream, and I think it was some kind of a sign… you HAVE to play tambourine on the show.” I was honored to accept his offer, of course, so I hopped in the car and headed down to the NBC studios, practicing the tambourine as I drove. I was surprised when I got to the stage… I thought they were going to have me tucked away somewhere behind the string section, but they had me standing right next to Ben’s piano. It was kind of surreal – my first appearance on the Tonight Show in 20 years, and there I was being a professional tambourine player! Well, needless to say, I had a blast, and I think the performance came off very well. And I’ll be happy to slap the tambourine again for Ben any time he wants.

Post by: GromReaper on October 04, 2005, 04:32:33 AM
Truth be told, I wasn't too happy with that new batch of Ask Als...none of the questions seemed too interesting, and most of the answers could be found elsewhere on the site.  Of course, Al's kwazy answers did kind of make up for it.

For the record, I would've said this over at the Weird Al forum, but there'd be less backlash over here :P
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on October 04, 2005, 05:17:51 AM
I didn't mind the questions. I know a few others who felt the same way you did, Grom, but, maybe Al just picked out some random ones to answer quickly so he could get back to working on the rest of the songs for album #12. Also, I'm glad he did pick out question 3, just so he could rip this gal a new one for even thinking he writes crap like "Bill Clinton's Bimbo #5".  ::)

I really liked his story about his stint with Ben on the Tonight Show. hehe, could you imagine seeing Al playing a tambourine while driving whatever it is he drives now? *guess he sold the Beemer* That would be too funny!

We were talking about Weird Al's tambourine playing debut with Ben Folds on the Tonight Show. The quote is from Ask Al on Weird Al's site. I thought the part about Ben saying he had a "weird fever dream" was pretty funny!

Ummmmmm halloween soon! But as I never do anything for it, who cares?!?! Half the belgians don't know what it is. Me and my friend went trick or treating years ago and loads of them were like what?!?! and didn't speak english! Never again...
Anyway off to bed now! my legs kills from running today and yesterday.

So on my college campus this evening, a bunch of students from apartments near mine had a collaborative ice cream/karaoke party (using my karaoke machine, I might add).

For the last song of the night, I sang to Ben's "Bitches Ain't Shit," and everyone was pretty much blown away by the awesomeness (they hadn't hear it before).  I love how singing that song feels so natural because of the music and then you realize what you're saying and start cracking up.


whee BF karaoke!

So last night was a bit of a drag. Basically, I agreed to take my sister, Emma, to this "Teen Culture" thing in Birmingham. It was a rock concert or something. I dunno. Anyway, Laura told me about it yesterday in history and said she was taking Emma and her own cousin. I'm supposed to be babysitting Emma and I didn't like this idea, so I got invited along. I got home and told Emma I was going and Emma revealed she'd been told by mum she couldn't go, so she called mum and told her I was coming, then mum said it was ok. Then she told all her friends. Then she told Laura who remembered she had planned for a "girl's night out" and was going with her friend, so suggested I take a friend along. I asked Sarita, Calum, Lynnesey, Ant, Rich, even Jordan Harris and none of them could make it there for 5:30. Damn. Kaveeta was going with her new friends so I arranged to meet up with her in town. So I did. We did a bit of catching up, while her friends went down to get their Teen Culture tickets. I intended to pay on the door.

I hung about with Kaveeta and her friends for awhile, had some McDonalds, etc., etc. then we went to the Academy to meet the rest of my party. Emma, Laura and Laura's cousin were already in the queue when we found them. We had to join a different queue because there was a bitchy steward who wouldn't let us even talk to them much. So we waited in the other queue (there was an guy who was in my opinion actually just a chav with an Anticross necklace who kept charging headfirst into crowd members, with spiked knuckle-dusters. c*nt) for ages. I needed to pee real bad. Eventually we got to the gate, but I went to the wrong gate 'cause I went with Kaveeta and it turned out if I wanted to pay on the door, I'd have to join the other f*cking massive queue! "f*ck this..." I exclaimed, "I'm going home!"

I left the queue and crossed the road to Toys R' Us, desperately needing to urinate. As soon as I crossed the threshold, Kaveeta called me. I had all her stuff in my bag! I had to trek back across the road to return it and then went back to Toys R' Us, my bladder now rapidly filling itself. I couldn't find the damn toilets so I exited and then re-entered the store. I found 'em eventually and thus ended that saga. So, eventually, I managed to contact Laura on her cellular telephone and told her I couldn't be bothered to go back in. I called Lynnesey and managed to arrange to meet him and Calum. Not long after, a security guard who resembled the character of Raymond The Bastard from "Max and Paddy's road to nowhere" (episode 4) asked me what I was doing as I had exited and re-entered the store three times and had been in there for about 20 minutes, I explained my situation, but it was pretty obvious he suspected me of shoplifting. Anyway, I waited around for Calum and Lynnesey, but the security guard eventually asked me to leave after another half hour. Bastard.

So I waited outside, in the dark, across the road from the Academy where several of my friends were, waiting for Calum and Lynnesey. I even gave a homeless woman £1, I was so bored (and nice). In the store, a girl had smiled at me. I had smiled back. Now she was on the otherside of the road, outside the Academy. I'd like to say I'm going somewhere with this, but I'm not. Nothing happened. Damn.

Anyway, Calum and Lynnesey eventually showed up. We walked the streets of Birmingham in the dark, pretending we were at war with the French (fireworks were going off) and finding out that every store we'd like to go to was shut. Damn. We went back to McDonalds and had some cokes and talked about life and girls. Then we had some fries. Then we had some burgers (I had 2!!!). Then I used the disabled toilet. This lasted us about 2 hours. Then we went to wait outside Toys R' Us. The concert was over, but they still took their f*cking time coming out. We grabbed Emma and went off to wait for the bus. The bus took ages to arrive and the area we were stood in stunk of sewage and the ground actually shook once. We realised that we'd been doing good deeds (I gave the lady £1 and Calum put some money in the charity box in McDonalds) so we decided to be bad so that karma could be restored to the universe. Rather than smashing all the windows of the Marks and Spencer branch opposite, we decided to mock people for things they can't change about themselves. As soon as we did this, the bus arrived. This is the best part of the story.

On the bus, there was an old man with one leg in a wheelchair, sat not too far away from another old man with glasses in a suit, with several of his fingers in bandages. From now on, the second old man will be referred to as Danny (because that was his name, not an Irish stereotype). Danny was sat opposite me and my sister. He was an Irish fella. He leaned across to the chap in the wheelchair and said:
"You okay, son?"
To which the fella in the wheelchair replied:
"No, if I was, I wouldn't be in the chair, would I?"
Danny kept leaning forwards to speak to me and saying things like "Un-f*cking-believable", "Never in a thousand years", "I mean, Jesus Christ!" and gesturing to the chap in the chair, and also "Big f*ckin' fat man". Danny was obviously quite drunk and I could smell the whiskey on his breathe. I just kept nodding and smiling, or shaking my head and saying "I know, man, it's terrible". Not too long passed before the wheelchair bound man departed from the bus. Danny asked him several more times if he was okay and got the same responses. He continued to repeat the same few phrases to me, as well. Once he was gone, Danny told us "I saw him 6 months ago, fit-as-f*ck. Must have been cancer. Un-f*cking-believable". He was obviously traumatised (and drunk) about his friends' lack of a left leg. Then he gave me a piece of advice that I will take to my grave. He said, "Son, let me f*ckin' tell ya somethin' - it's not how ya start off in this life, it's how ya end".
Wise words there from an even drunker man. Some of his friends (also drunk, but these were younger) joined us at the stop where Calum and Lynnesey got off and they were having drunken talk (this is how I came to know him as Danny. It also sounds like he'd been betting on horses all day). This bus ride made my disasterous night possibly one of the funniest experiences I have had in recent years. I intend to immortalise Danny as a character in my stories and potential cartoons/sitcoms/sketch shows/movies.

YAY!

^^ good story  :D ^^
Reminds me of a story I heard once. A friend of mine was at this stand up comedian once, and as they do, he was making fun of a large percentage of the audience. There was this guy in a wheelchair, you was heckling a bit. But no joke was made.

At the end of the show the chap in the wheelchair went up to the stand up and said "WTF? why didn't you make any jokes about me? It's because im in a wheelchair, isn't it?". And the stand up replied "Well, I'll tell you one thing. You'll never do stand up."

Just wondering if anybody has an MP3 of "Lonely Christmas Eve", Ben's song from "The Grinch" soundtrack. It's just, it's Christmas Eve. And I'm lonely. And I've left my MP3 player in Wales...

Would appreciate it ;)

The magic is gone from Christmas for me; it's no longer the exciting, once-a-year present fest it used to be, with the monumental build up and the ultimate climax when the big day finally arrives. No. Father Christmas is now nothing more than an escaped elderly mental patient; Frosty, a monstrous blob of frozen dog urine, decked in the battered old hat of a homeless person, froze to death beside him. Or something like that.

Still, got some good stuff. CDs by The Flaming Lips, The LeeVees and Semisonic and one hell of a lot of DVDs. Some other stuff too. Not a bad haul.

The bassist for the LeeVees, Shawn Fogel, graduated from my college a couple of years ago.  I've seen him play a few times.  He's a fun guy, and the LeeVees are hilarious. :)

Cool. Dave (of "The Zambonis") e-mailed me awhile back after I purchased a Zambonis CD and we talked a little about The LeeVees, myself being primarily a Guster fan (he told me he was sat next to Adam from Guster as he wrote).

Got lots of snow here. Well, I say lots. Not that much. But it hasn't melted. The whole place looks like Narnia. I was walking down the road my school is on which is mostly Wilderness (hence the name "Wilderness Lane") and it was quite eerie; snowy trees, one functional lamp-post, nobody about...

And it sounded like something was following me... I kept hearing scampering all over the place as I walked down the road...

Has anyone else been disapointed by the Christmas movies this year on TV? Except for Back To The Future, Rushmore and Toy Story 2, it's been highly disapointing.

I live in Nashville and I lived next door to the guy when he was growing up. I know he wouldnt like you... hes a good guy he doesnt need hero worship. HE HATES FORUM DWELLERS who spend there time who waste their time trying to come up with 'hilarious' responses who insult and who obviously dont like you. I used to teach him some piano.

Ok, I have a question. I know Ben Folds played a gig at a bowling alley a few years ago, and that Weird Al sang on a few songs. I used to have pics from some website. What I'm asking is, does anyone know when this was, and what the name of the bowling alley was? I would have loved to have heard Al sing "Song for the Dumped".

Well, we're speculating early this year. I want it around the end of March, because my birthday is on the 25th. The 28th is a Tuesday, so that would work. Al said a while back that he was hoping to tour this summer. Let's hope this all comes true. He's going back into the studio sometime this month. Yay!

That sounds reasonable. If you were just complaining about life in general, I'm sorry, Kel. Just very used to havig to defend my Al fandom.

My two year old son has started singing Annie Waits. He already sings You to Thank as well as bits of numerous other Ben songs. I hope he turns out to be a professional musician and gets to appear on Jools Holland. When he interviews him and asks "so what were your early influences?" he'll say, "well, from a very early age my dad brainwashed me with Ben Folds' music"

Ok, well, I was just curious.

Here's some shocking news: Weird Al and Coolio are friends now!! Yup, that's right. They were seen shaking hands, and even hugging each other at an event for XM Satellite Radio this past Friday. Check it out for yourself right here:

Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on January 09, 2006, 11:10:22 AM
Lol, cool.

My dad said that he saw an animation at work of a new Weird Al song called "Lost Rhapsody" about the popular TV series. Anybody know about this? I pointed out to him that ANY parody song on the internet automatically gets labelled as Al's work, but my dad was adament that it was Mr. Yankovic...
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on January 09, 2006, 11:19:05 AM
Well, the Lost Rhapsody video was actually done to Al's song "Bohemian Polka". It's up on the website, I believe. Just look on the News page.

CAPS LOCK... much better) All I said was it's my least favourite song off the first album, which also happens to be the greatest album of all time, without a faulty track on it. Doesn't mean I don't like/love the song. First album goes for me (some of these are subject to change):

1. Underground
2. Alice Childress
3. Best Imitation
4. Boxing
5. Jackson Cannery
6. Uncle Walter
7. Where's Summer B.?
8. Video
9. Philosophy
10. Sports and wine
11. Julianne
12. The last polka

I had NO lessons today, yet I still stayed in school for 5 out of 6 periods (I was supposed to have 5 lessons out of 6, but teachers were ill/deceased). In period 6, me and Calum went into town to find jobs. Most places aren't hiring, but we offloaded a couple of CVs in "Next" and "BHS". Fingers crossed.

Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on January 18, 2006, 09:32:54 AM
Yeah, there's an absence board but it's rarely updated and if it IS, it's usually wrong. I asked the receptionist once if my teacher was in and she was a f*cking stupid young lady who knew nothing. I used to get pissed off at the old receptionists who shouted at me for running, but at least they KNEW what was going on at the school... Grrr... And it's NEVER the teachers you WANT to be away, is it?

I've been talking to a dude on AIM who knows Will Owsley, Millard Powers, some of Astronaut Pushers, etc. and we were talking about Millard (the dude primarily knows Will, but he has met the others through him). I thought Han might like this - Millard is playing with Counting Crows and, though not an official member, it's looking likely because they get on so well and have stage chemistry. He also said that CC love England, so FINGERS CROSSED!!! ;)

The sad people in the common room were watching it earlier. There was some chap singing, but he didn't sound Australian (like Ben Lee), he sounded German...

They also watch a programme called "Make me perfect" which disgusts me. It's about women who are insecure about their looks and get plastic surgery and shit. Not only do you SEE the plastic surgery and the women's naked upper bodies (I might point out that most of the women are old and the show is on at something like 2:30-3PM). The show also plays on the incorrect, shallow stereotypes of modern society that to be "perfect" you have to look "perfect", something that I really disagree with - some of the most beautiful people I know are hideously ugly on the outside. People might feel insecure about their looks, but they should LEARN TO LIVE WITH WHAT (they) ARE and not resort to measures like plastic surgery. If you had the money for plastic surgery, even if you were pig ugly, people would still pay you interest. You could afford to not be vain and buy a boat instead or a nice car or something instead of having your face f*cked up. Then people would like you. Everybody knows that money is the key to happiness, not plastic surgery.

Oh, I also found out it's on from 2.30-3.30. 3.30 is when the children's programming starts - a perfect time to have pre-watershed nudity and graphic images of surgery.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Carolyn on January 31, 2006, 11:32:51 AM
I don't watch it ALL THE TIME! Ok thats a lie... the number of times i've not been able to talk to you cos of it hehehe!
Anyway, I haven't seen all the episodes. There have been 5 Las Vegas Series, 2 Miami Series (on 3rd i think), and one New York Series...
... 23 episodes in each... thats 184 episodes which are about 50 minutes each... thats 9200 minutes (153 hours kinda)
hahaha there u go... a history of CSI! I haven't watched that many episodes considering how many there are!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on January 31, 2006, 11:45:42 AM
Spare me the details - you watch it all the time.

And that wasn't a history. A history would be you saying something like "It all started back in (year) when (main character) did something and, as a result, something else happened with hilarious results, etc."

Post by: algonacchick on February 02, 2006, 10:56:53 AM
Ok, I mentioned a little bit in the Bonnaroo thread about getting bad news. On Sunday, my Dad called to tell me that my brother-in-law Glenn passed away Saturday night. He was only 53, far too young to die. My sister had him cremated, and is bringing the ashes from Memphis to Michigan. Glenn's family are all from here. There will be a luncheon on Saturday, but no service. I'm just shocked by this. That was the worst of the bad news, but not the only bad news. My friend Julie, who has been a real sweetheart to me and my family, had a heart attack recently. I called her today, because she's also a beautician, and I wanted her to color my hair. When she said she couldn't just yet because of the heart attack, I couldn't believe it. She's 67 years young. *I always say it that way, because she has such a youthful spirit.* She said she made it to the hospital just in time. They told her she had 99% blockage in her heart. Wow. She told me she could maybe do my hair next week. I told her no hurry. Anyway, that's what I've ben dealing with today. I am now off to be bad and eat junk food to take my mind off things for a little while.

aw, yay alex, sounded like an awesome time with Mr. Lee.  he also played "Bruised" when I saw him in November...and he did the encore deal, too, haha.   I think I may actually put up some pics on the Beauties thread, as I'm tempted to put up mine with Ben Lee now....glad to hear you had a good show.

Hehe... My Media coursework is to make the opening sequence to a thriller movie... I made it and today decided on the music - "Theme from Dr. Pyser" - which fits PERFECTLY to me and Calum's acting as a derranged, witchlike uncle holding his nephew hostage.

Oggelsby's film - a piece about a young Jehovah's witness (me) who discovers a dead body and a murderer in Oggelsby's house - is accompanied by the fight music from "The Matrix".

It was pissing it down four hours ago, Kel. Or at least it was here. You should've got up then...




Actually, you shouldn't. From now on, it's ILLEGAL to get up before 10.

Currently in middle of evil MOCK EXAMS (insert evil laugh). 6 hours and 20 mins of Irish and Biology tomorrow! Nightmare!
And to top it off, frickin mocks continue after mid term! GARGHH!
Im just hoping my copy of We Love Katamari arrives from Play to ease the pain.

And their NEW ALBUM ("At war with the mystics") is released here on 3rd April (America on the 4th :p). And their NEW SINGLE ("The yeah yeah yeah song") is released on (I think) the 27th March. And I'm SEEING THEM LIVE on 24th April.

27th March - "The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song" (The Flaming Lips) released as a single.
28th March - Guillemots live at the Birmingham Glee Club (saw them with Rufus, they rock)
3rd April - "At War with the mystics" (The Flaming Lips) released.
6th April - Tina Dico live at the Birmingham Glee Club (saw her with Ben Lee)
24th April - THE FLAMING LIPS LIVE.
24th April - Family Guy series 4 released on DVD.

YAY!!!

Oh, and it's someone's birthday on March 13th, but that's not REALLY that exciting, is it, Caz? ;) (and I don't mean my Grandad's...)

carolyn - the olympics is looking pretty good
my money is on slovakia to win (even though i havent seen them play yet)
canada are good but just lacking a bit this year
you can sure buy me a ticket for mraz if you want han
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Carolyn on February 19, 2006, 09:46:22 AM
I don't really know who will win, haven't seen everyone play. Would have thought canada at the beginning but maybe not now. Would be nice though, as they have the best goalie ever. I think theres some on now which my bro is watching. Dunno who though.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...

Yeh i reckon the swedes might win, canada are gonna lose to finland, so they're not doing too well.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: ~M on February 19, 2006, 03:00:36 PM
Ah... a conversation on hockey.


I don't get it. The commentators on the BBC made their only decent comment in that the canadians are a team of talented individuals, and not working as a team well. It reminds me of a comment that is made at the end of the movie 'Miracle' that the 'All-Star teams' rarely ever win.

However, I believe the canadians will pick themselves up.

Swedes will get close, but I do not think they will win. With Forsberg claiming he is able to play again, when he does, it will not be enough to help the team loads.

Czechs lost it when Hasek and Elias went home. Jagr getting introduced to the boards didn't help either.

Before I make this too long, and in summary, Canadians vs. Finland final. Possibly.

US may also pick themselves up. All those devils have to do something for them.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on February 19, 2006, 11:46:59 PM
I have a hankering that nobody will win and that the entire universe will collapse inwards on itself during the closing seconds of the last game.

But it won't matter, 'cause the universe will be gone and there'll be nobody around to remember it, except for God (who probably made it happen anyway and can always make a new one...).

Just a hunch.

I was wondering when you would find this haha!
If it is canada vs finland in the final, canada might just get beaten again, unless they have brodeur in goal, then they might be saved!
haha the commentators on the BBC are so stupid... at least the english one.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Kel on February 21, 2006, 06:17:25 AM
they are not so good on their knowledge are they
but i will go sao far as to say that canada will not make the finals
i reckon slovakia finland

so ive been working allllllll day on painting these sets and they turned out pretty well for my first time doing it
if someone let me know how to put photos up here i surely show you the pics of them if you were interested
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on March 03, 2006, 06:32:23 AM
Okay, Kel, I'll see your request for an "uploading pictures" tutorial and raise you a ham sandwich.

First up, you need to get your pics as JPEGs or GIFs or even PNGs. Bitmaps are huge so steer clear of that.

Go to www.imageshack.us and click "browse or whatever on the "upload image form" to access your pictures and stuff. Find the one you want and hit "Upload".

Once that's done uploading, you'll be taken to another page with a bunch of links. The one you want is labelled "Direct link to your image" (or something similar). Copy it, then come here.

Final step, as you're writing your message, hit the BBC tag for "Insert Image" (2nd line, 2nd from left - between the globe and the "Flash" circle). This should put [img.][/img.] (without the dots, I put them in so it shows up...) and you just need to post your link between them, so it's [img.]www.thesuburbs.org.uk[/img.] or whatever. That should post your picture.

Imageshack does have some size restrictions, so just avoid massive pictures. I find PNGs to be nice quality "legal" files for imageshack.

Im not sure if this has been posted already, but there was one of those rubbishy celebrity programmes - Impact of Heat magazine or something - on Sky One last night (it was on in the background, I swear) and what came blasting out for around three seconds : Underground!

I've had a good day, too.

First up, check out the image section of www.theoldceremony.com for some drawings that I sent to Django.

Secondly, Evan Olson's (Evan was in "Majosha", "Pots and Pans" and co-wrote "Emaline") new band, LUBE, sent me their CD, alongside a whole heap of other cool stuff!!!

yeah it does we're sleeping over in a church - me and my sis and john and maybe a couple of mates are having a massive chinese before lol, but im going to be hungry!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Carolyn on March 13, 2006, 12:06:53 PM
I would NEVER be able to do that... well maybe if i had to. But I normally last about 3 hours before getting hungry.

I wish it would snow here... its just sunny and cold.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on March 13, 2006, 12:22:21 PM
LUBE sent:

- Their CD
- A T-shirt
- A signed glossy press photo
- A black & white poster
- A setlist
- 4 signed guitar plectrums
- A drumstick

It was a majorly exciting experience opening that MASSIVE parcel, I tell ya!!!

Also, I have information from Django Haskins that INVOLVES BEN, DARREN and ROBERT!!!

Well, I e-mailed Django after I saw from his tour record that he'd played a few shows with Darren a couple of years back (as well as playing with Robert in International Orange) and I told him to meet and befriend Ben so Ben would choose him as a support act and bring him to the UK. Here's what he said:

"Actually, darren was the one I met first - we played a solo show together in NYC when i was still living up there and when I moved down here, he was the one who introduced me to a bunch of people who are now my friends. I don't see Darren much though; he's kind of a hermit I think. I did meet Ben once, when Robert and i went to see him before his solo show in Raleigh a while back. He was cool - we got to hang out a bit. I think TOC would be great opening for him, actually. Though I think Rufus would be a better match."

Well, I hope that quote helps lay to rest some of the rumours going around after the break-up of the Five (i.e. that the guys all hate one another); the fact Robert went to see a Ben solo show is alone enough to lay that to rest for me, but the fact he met up with Ben before and they hung out means we can pretty safetly assume that there are no bad feelings between those two at least.

Yeah what's with it being 24hrs, not 40? I've done the 40hrs, and personally I thought the first day was the hardest. The second day was like free time - I didn't get hungry at all. Weird.

Jesus didn't eat for 40 days. That's a fairly long time.

David Blaine didn't eat for 44 days, and he's supposed to be a magician, though it's never struck me as being particularly "magical" being able to live in a big glass box without food. More like "Stupid".

and its over. was fun! and i wasnt too hungry until 12:30ish had a headache like a hangover by then, mightnt of helped that i only got 3hrs sleep last night, mass sleepover was fun! tho the church service this morning was a fight not to sleep in! ahhh all for charity raised just over £100 so woo.

as for 40hours, shrug www.24hourfamine.org.uk ask them ;) lol
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on March 20, 2006, 12:20:22 AM
I dunno why you'd do 40 hours, tbh. Shouldn't it be more like 48? Or is it symbolic of 40 days? In which case, you should stop being so darn lazy and go the full distance!

Well done, Han.

Have you ever tried animating South Park-style? It's real easy. Here's one I did:

(http://img10.exs.cx/img10/205/fart7xo.gif)

That's just a basic Terrence and Phillip loop, but I started animating some proper complicated stuff (in fact, the only reason I made that was for a TV that featured in the background in a film I was working on).

You're welcome to her. She's made me rather angry and if she'd just GO AWAY I'd be happy.

The other sister is practically everything that is great about the universe, plus a hell of a lot more. Her divine brilliance is, like, the reason I live or something. SHE ACTUALLY KNEW WHO BEN WAS WHEN I FIRST MENTIONED HIM TO HER!!! Words just can't express how bloody brilliant she is. Sigh.

and alex she wouldnt hate penguins if she met me, and penguins are notoriously hard to kill, or if you're talking hit man lingo, whack.

Alonso won, then raikonnen, then r schumacher.
Jenson button blew up on the last lap!!! Then stopped a few metres from the line because they decided it would be better not to finish the race, otherwise he would have to start 10 places back in the next race. Kinda makes sense. Was such a good race though.

HAHA IAM SO GOING ICE SKATING TONIGHT IN YOUR FACE CAROLYN.

We're so going when I get back. Also here is a story.


OH YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS.

sorry, just remembered. I was in my lecture this morning, and I had a CD in my hand, My friend goes 'What CD is that?', so I said 'Ben. Folds. Five.' (he hates them... he's stupid or something), and then he pretends to throw it across the room.

I was like 'uh no', and then my lecturer walks up and goes 'oi! Don't pretend to throw ben folds five!' I was like gobsmacked, and looked up and went 'you like ben folds five?'

At this point I almost soiled myself. He said yes he did, and he'd seen them live in Dublin. I was like 'damn it, I've seen ben folds four times, but not the five....' and then he asked me what my favourite song of theirs was, and I said 'Uncle Walter is really good...', and I asked him his.

"Boxing is really good"
"Yeah... it is!"
"I also really like one angry dwarf"
I then went "I've seen Ben Folds do it live, and it was out of this world... love that song"


I then sat the whole of the lecture with Uncle Walter playing in my head....


I really wish I'd had something to drink, so I could have peed myself.

So that was my ben folds conversation of the day. Its cheered me up no end.


Pete Eley, you've gone up a whole load in my books.

Time to go and do some work biatches.

I'm coming home on saturday carolyn. Bet you can't wait.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Kel on April 18, 2006, 06:23:58 AM
heres the low down han

theres a thing you can apply for when you are at uni called access funds. every uni has it and you can apply as soon as you get there just ask your student services.
of course this requires filling out loads of forms but its worth it in the end cos if you fill them in, send em in, and dont turn up to your interview you get £200 anyway!!
but if you do turn up and tell them your story, make it as sad as poss, you can get a max of £2000! which im sure you would qualify for.
and as for skipping the country, i think it does work im not too sure, the UK gov. have made sure they put on your forms that if you do leave you have to let them know so that you can still pay them £7 a month when you start earning £15,000 a yr. but i think if you dont tell them and they find you, they can make you pay the whole thing straight off!
so beware, but i have heard its been done.........
long post  for kel eh, wont happen again people i promise.



oh and im doing uni work, all my hand in dates are in 2weeks so its stress central
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on April 19, 2006, 12:12:58 AM
So, let's see... I went into town yesterday for numerous reasons:
- because I wanted to
- because I wanted the "Yeah yeah yeah song" single without having to pay shipping
- because I wanted McDonalds
- because of various other reasons that I can't be arsed to mention

Anyway, we were in Musiczone which is generally cheap and I got an album by The Raveonettes for £3. I spotted SFS for £4 and my friend, Oggelsby, who allegedly likes Ben's music declined to buy it on the claim that "if I get it now I'll only see it somewhere else for less", yet still bought a Panic! at the disco album for £7, proclaiming it "the cheapest I'm likely to find it". Now, I've got nothing against Panic!, but me and another friend were singing their song on the bus and Oggelsby had never heard of them. How... disappointing.

I got my Flaming Lips singles (debated as to whether I should buy the new Tina Dico single, but declined on the grounds that I didn't get let in to the last concert I went to - one of hers - because, supposedly, I don't look 18. Granted, I'm not 18, but it's still a kick in the bollocks) and my McDonalds and me and my friends decided to walk down to the Academy to see if I could spot any secret entrances where I could meet The Flaming Lips on Monday. Tragically, none were found, but we decided to keep on walking. And walking. And walking. Eight miles later, we arrived back in Great Barr, having saved 60p on bus fare (I'm actually meant to pay the adult's fare of £1.20, but refuse to on the grounds that, while, as a 17 year old, I'm classed as an adult, I'm not treated like one in anything other than paying for shit; I can't order alcohol - not that I want to, I can't attend a Tina Dico concert and I can't book a holiday without someone over the age of 18. I am NOT an adult). Unfortunately, the extra two miles I walked with Calum after (he didn't walk the 8, he caught the bus 5 minutes before we made the decision to walk it; I just went to his house to laugh in his face) made me very, very sick when I got home and now I'm quite ill.

...But would I do it again?





Yes.

I saw SFS today for like £12 in another store. Oggelsby is such a douche.

I watched the video to "The Yeah yeah yeah song" and I'm now craving hamburgers.

if i saw the normal sfs for £4 i'd probably buy it just so that ive got a sfs and a special edition (SIGNED) one :P but u know...alex sounds like u had fun!

By the way, y'know my shitass band (which is just me. being shit) - www.myspace.com/edibleghost - well, a local band, Tonebank (www.loadatone.com) actually asked me to support them at a summer show yesterday. Pretty sweet deal. I said I'd think about it, but it might not happen because one of Tonebank's duo is "difficult" when it comes to performing live.

I'm pretty sure my grandad knows a chap who plays as the live drummer (or something) for "Super Furry Animals". SFA are playing a festival in Leeds with THE FLAMING LIPS, The Zutons, The Who and The Eels that I'd very much like to go to, so I'm gonna find out if the guy still plays with 'em and can get me some tickets... Or at least autographs... I swear, if the guy is the band's drummer, I'll be spending a lot more time in Wales, trying to get him to be my friend.

Post by: Tractor Boy on May 17, 2006, 01:32:52 PM
What about a "first person to 1,000,000 posts gets to go on tour with Ben and the band?" That'd liven things up. There'd have to be conditions though, like each post has to be a minimum of 20 words or something. I supppose finance could be an issue. Plus, would Ben want a random fan tagging along? Probably not. Actually, 1,000,000 could take a while. I mean it probably takes even a prolific poster about a year to clock up 1000 posts so that'd be 1000 years before they clocked up 1,000,000. People might have died by then. Maybe we should reduce it?

I'm going to bed now.....

I told you all when I first joined that I was severely lacking in Ben cds. Well, I just got Rockin' the Suburbs and Forever and Ever Amen yesterday! I love both of them!

I also got a Jim West cd. Jim is Weird Al's guitar player. He plays beautiful Hawaiian Slack Key guitar music. It's a lovely cd for relaxing and imagining warmer weather. I'm glad I got these cds.  :D

by the way, I am getting impatient for Mr. Al to finish up this next album...any word on that?


also, Kweller fans:  his new album is set to be released on Sept. 12th--our own Ben's birthday. !

SinginShoe, the very latest news I have on Al's cd is that it's been mastered, which, in my mind, means it's finished. We had heard there were 11 tracks, but we were hoping for a 12th, is as the standard. He may well have recorded a 12th track, and didn't tell us. Anyway, it was mastered in surround sound, so it should sound pretty cool! I'm forseeing an update at weirdal.com in the very near future. This news came from elsewhere.

I'm loving my new Ben cds. I think I'll listen to RTS.

Not that it matters to you lot, but I do wanna tell some IRL friends, but I can't unless I know the darn name! He says he can't remember. Well, I'm sure the bass player, who got them the gig knows. hehe! Hubby knows where it is, just can't place the name. Anyway, this is cool, eh?

When my friend got drunk, he was convinced he knew everything about American history (which, in his defence, he knows almost as much as me about when sober), Lord of the Rings (which he actually does; I swear, he wrote them...) and also, playing guitar.

The fact the guitar was a plastic playstation controller didn't really come into it.

Al is all about poking fun at pop culture, and being really good at it. The new song of which Grom and I are speaking pokes fun at "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt. Al's song is called "You're Pitiful". We can relate talking about Al to Ben by saying that Al and Ben are friends. :)

Post by: SinginJen on June 13, 2006, 09:27:19 AM

I've got some random (how appropriate!) Ben-related happenings from last night to share...

First, I was watching a May rerun of Jimmy Kimmel Live because Dane Cook was on it.  During Jimmy's monologue-deal, they started joking about Katherine McPhee or whatever her name is, from American Idol, and they did a sort of parody of "Where are they Now?".  Except, on Idol, her fans always said they had McPhever (fever), so during the parody they kept using all these F words and putting Mc- in front of the them.  (i.e. "she tumbled from mcfame and mcfortune" etc.)

So during the thing they do this part saying McPhee did backup vocals for a few random bands..."Foo McFighters" and then, "Ben Folds McFive" and then something else.  By the time I realized they said BFF, I only caught a glimpse of the photo (they only showed it for about a second) and I saw Robert with the bass and a photoshoped insert of McPhee in back of him.  haha  It made me happy.

Then last night I had a dream that my father was making me late to a Ben Folds show, and I was really frustrated with him.  lol  Which is weird in the first place, cause I'd never need a ride from him to a show...?  The best part though:  the reason we were running late is because he was stopping into a convience store to get a slurpee/slushee.  What?  haha
Dream analysis anyone?  (I've been annoyed with him lately, but I love the slurpee thing.)

Dream analysis: This symbolises a deep frustration with birds, which may be well heeded. A pigeon will poop on your head as you listen to "Silver Street". Beware of speed bumps and the number three.

No, I'm talking about Seb's 21st regeneration (like with Dr. Who) so he's the 21st Seb. And he's happy.

The fact this also falls on his 21st birthday is irrelevant. Though, he should indeed have a happy one.

Yep. Won the National Academy Of Gifted and Talented Youth's business competition in 2005 and got to go to New York. That's why I'm on front of "Aspire" magazine in the "more pictures" section of my Myspace. I removed the faces of the other "team-mates" as I did all the work on my own and they edited it (and put it into layments English that was exceptionally poorly worded) and still got a prize from it.

I just burned my hand pretty badly. Managed to pour boiling water over my first finger, knuckles, and thumb. Good ol' frozen peas kept the pain at bay for about an hour, but they're back in the freezer and it feels like someone is pressing sandpaper into my skin as hard as they can.

Curse this super-efficient boiler of mine!

I believe it was President Carter who gave a speech in Poland during his presidency in which he declared "I would very much like to have intercourse with your country". The reason for this was he had his speech converted into Polish but the translator only spoke "old Polish" and that was what "I love your country very much" translated as.

And who could forget JFK's now legendary declaration that he was a jelly donut?

Yeah, I essentially have two medical tampons shoved up my nose, with succhers (sp?) hanging out, tied in the middle.  So, in addition to having a very WIDE nose for the time being, I have a tiny little moustache.

I guess it's not so much pain as it is uncomfortable, and I'm spending a lot of time just trying to sleep through it.  Of course, on second thought, I may be on here MORE considering I have to take about 10 days off of work, and my computer is oh-so-close to my bed.

But thank you for taking an interest, it means a lot!

can I ask, why did you need the surgery in the first place?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: whenlabratsgobad on July 17, 2006, 03:48:57 PM
Well, this surgery was part two of my "Summer of Snoring"...I guess I snored pretty bad (I didn't care, but my roommate complained.  Then again, I hated him, so I didn't care...yet again.), so I went to an ENT (Ears, Nose, and Throat doctor).  He recommended two surgeries:
1. Tonsillectomy
2. Straightening some crooked cartilage in my nose in order to open my sinuses

Today, I finished the bulk of the post-op recovery for the second operation!  Now I can breathe through my nose again!  Plus, I don't snore any longer!...well, I stopped snoring after the tonsilectomy.  I started again when I had the packing in my nose, but that should be resolved now...I guess I'll find out tonight.

Thanks for all of the support.  Everyone.  I mean it.  Thanks.

this is random, but seeing the title of the thread, well, it's not against the rules ;)

BUT, back on track here. i was just listening to Ben Folds Live, and it's the stupid edited version, but anyway. right after Best Imitation he starts explaining Not the Same, and when he says, "...and became a born again christian", they bleep out christian.
are we not aloud to say the names of religions anymore?
another thing that was strange to me was that Jesus Christ wasnt bleeped out of Not the Same even though they JUST bleeped out Christian.
i'm still very confused about this.

haha, you wouldn't want to steal his wallet with his body guards around. I was sitting in there, laughing at some 6' 6'' guy who could probably lift the starbucks on his back, and then when I walked out, I see arnold there holding a coffee in shorts and a tshirt in 20 degree weather walking to his caravan, and I shouted out "HEY! Arnie!" and gave him a thumbs up, and he smiled and returned the thumbs up and got in and a they drove away. it was the most random experience of my entire life.

I guess his wife has family in Columbia Maryland, so he must have been there for thanksgiving.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: SinginJen on July 26, 2006, 10:00:02 AM

the weather is getting more sporadic in general because of global warming.  in a super small nutshell, more carbon dioxide in the air is keeping more heat trapped in the Earth's atmosphere and is consequently screwing up weather/growing patterns everywhere.  there's actually a direct link to all the storms happening...warmer temps make storms grow stronger (hurricane katrina, asian tsunamis, anyone?).

i'd suggest reading 'field notes from a catastrophe' or seeing the pretty-okay al gore's 'inconvienent truth' for the low-down.

i am an environmental nerd, i apologize.  but not really.

Sounds a bit rude. Sounds like...bum! *I love Blackadder*

Anyway, for the few Weird Al fans here, Al's new album, "Straight Outta Lynwood", drops on 9/26! I can't wait!

I've also pre-ordered a copy of the Weird Al Show on DVD, which hits stores August 15th. It's a great time to be a Weird Al fan!

Ok, was that random enough?

Cool, Singin Shoe! Yeah, I suppose my post wasn't really that random, but glad to hear you'll be getting Al's new cd. What, no Weird Al Show DVD set for you? hehe, I love that show. I have it on tape, but some of my tapes got screwed up, so the dvd set is a must-have for me. Anyway, hope you get to see Al in concert. It's so much fun!

Psst, if you wanna see the full album cover, it's on Al's myspace.

Once you can get some dvds, you should get "Weird Al" Yankovic Live, if you don't already have it. Wonderful! And The Ultimate Video Collection is great, too! I have a counter on my myspace that is counting down to The Weird Al Show dvd release date. hehe!

Though, I almost cried during Mess when he played it live.

Tractor Boy, I believe the word in your Blackadder quote would be  flaw, not floor.

I was trying to report him to the police but they arrested the wrong guy (don't worry, I got that guy set free) but I was sure that ScrewedHippy knew I was trying to get him arrested and I knew he was somewhere in the area.

I have Ben dreams from time to time.


There was this one time I dreamt that I- for some reason- was babysitting Louis and Gracie for like two months. At the Folds' home. And Ben was very stern about how I could not use the phone or the internet to contact people, because he didn't want the "crazies" to be able to find him. And my dream self said to my dream self that the crazy was already there.

That's one of many silly Ben dreams I have had.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Andy on August 08, 2006, 01:43:36 PM
I had a modern-day ben/anxiety dream saturday night.

I dreamt I was on stage playing bass with some other people, and for some reason Ben came on stage to play piano. The crowd were going nuts for Ben and he launched into RtS, which I didn't know the bass for. I found the root notes easily enough, but just didn't feel confident giving it any more. Plus I did dumb things like drop my pick and make a horrible racket trying to pick it up again (I hardly ever use a pick, btw). At the end of it ben actually chased me offstage, attempted to kick me, and told me never to come to any of his concerts again.

It was a modern day anxiety dream because in the dream I wasn't doing it - I was watching myself do it on a fan-shot video on youtube. Is was all "Man, that was so bad. No wonder I blocked it out of my memory".

Was any part of that dream NOT geeky?

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on August 08, 2006, 03:43:53 PM
Oh I'm sorry Andy. I've never preformed with Ben in any of my dreams.

Though, I had a dream where I was sitting on stage to watch the show. But all the keys were going horizontal on the piano instead of vertical. And they were all black. And he was playing an upright.

And he was a not so happy Ben. No. Not at all, because as soon as I noticed the weird piano he got pissed off and left stage.

Sad.

Not all my Ben dreams is Ben mad in though; I had another dream where I had a really crappy spot at a concert, but then met Ben after the show, in the snow, like, he was standing in, not on, in, a snow bank. And I was the only person who came out to meet him, even though, I was surrounded by .orgers in said dream. It was strange. But Ben rememberd my name in this dream. I wasn't; "hey you, I know you" like I am in real life... This is a goal of mine. To be "Allison" and not "hey you." Though, "hey you" is good for now.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: SinginJen on August 08, 2006, 05:40:54 PM
my only ben dream was one i had last spring.  i dreamt that i went back to my high school to see a play (and the building didn't look like it actually does at all).  i walked into the auditorium...and no, it wasn't ben playing.
he was selling tickets.  let me repeat for emphasis: selling tickets.
i walked in and he was to my left, standing behind this short table by himself. there was maybe one other person in the lobby. selling tickets to a high school play.
and i remember looking around and thinking, "is no one else seeing this? why aren't people freaking out? and most of all, why is he selling tickets to a high school play?"
so i went up to him, and was like, 'um, hey!' and then we chatted about how the tickets weren't selling that well.  and i was just really really confused. and excited. but the excitment was overshadowed by the confusion.

andy, that's the worst kind of anxiety dream...not only did you mess up, ben folds tried to kick you.  yikes.

by the way, apparently all of my friends know i like ben folds now.  i got some serious merchandise, it was ridiculously wonderful.  i got the WASO dvd, the Hedge soundtrack, and then BFF stuff:  a WAEA black long-sleeve shirt, a bag that I think may have been the one someone else was talking about (i need to find that post), four pins, and the Notes from Home: Volume 4 compilation cd.  prettttty much the best birthday ever.

Post by: Allison on August 10, 2006, 12:12:36 PM
Sometimes I think there's something missing in my brain.

Or that if I listen to Ben before bed, he'll show up. Once "One Angry Dwarf" was the music in a commercial I was directing for Netflix. Why I was directing a commercial is unknown, and what ever OAD has to do with movies that come in the mail, beats me.

i thought for a long time that it was 'when LA brats go bad' (as in the city).  i thought it was a bit odd, as you didn't seem the type to want to choose a screenname that sounds like a soft-core porn movie.  but then i realized my error.

and with that, hope 19 is a good year for you...starting tomorrow if not today!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: whenlabratsgobad on August 13, 2006, 04:09:57 PM
Why thank you, Shoe!

The worst confusion that ever came about with the screen name was when I was talking to my friend while she used her dad's SN.  She logged off, then the name signed on about ten minutes later.  I IM, thinking it's her, and apparently end up talking to her dad.  When he asked "So, just how bad do LA Brats get?" I knew I was over my head, and promptly signed off.

But, for the record, it is "When Lab Rats Go Bad"...I just don't know if "lab rats" is one word or two.

So, I have TWAS on DVD and Ben Folds on DVD to look forward to! Huzzah!!

I was reading Spin magazine yesterday because I felt like it, and they listed the top 25 live bands, and both My Morning Jacket and The Flamings Lips were in there (duh).

Lucky you, Alex. Kweller is playing up in Portland in September, but I won't be able go. I'm still trying to get my dad to let me go to the Guster/Nada Surf show.

Hey, Alex, did you know that Ben Kweller was on The Weird Al Show? His old band, Radish were musical guests.

Weird, huh?

Anyway, enjoy the concert, even if you do have to wait until November!

P.S. looks like this board is having spam for breakfast. *well, it's morning here, anyway* bleh!

yeah, I just found out that Radish was on the show a few months ago, that's crazy. and awesome. (i love finding connections between my favorites.)

i'm seeing bk in october, possibly in new york but probably in boston.  i'm excited about seeing him with a band. (i've only seen him solo w/ guitar and keyboard.)

Technically, no, but it is Rowan Atkinson, playing a character name Edmund Blackadder. This pic is from Blackadder Goes Forth, a series set in World War I.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on September 01, 2006, 10:11:31 AM
It's his pre-Mr. Bean stuff; classic British comedy set throughout history.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on September 01, 2006, 07:10:48 PM
Yes, thanks for explaining further. Blackadder was the best thing Rowan ever did for British television. Love it!

From Wikipedia:

"Although each series is set in a different historical period, all follow the fortunes (or, rather, misfortunes) of Edmund Blackadder (played by Atkinson), who in each is a member of an English family dynasty present at many significant periods and places in British history. Although his intelligence levels rise over the course of the series (the character starts as being quite unintelligent in the first and gradually becomes smarter through each passing generation), each Blackadder is similar in that they are all cynical, cowardly opportunists concerned with maintaining and increasing their own status and fortunes in life, regardless of their surroundings. Also, each Blackadder's social status becomes lower, even though Blackadder's intellect increases. The lives of each man are also entwined with their servants, all called Baldrick (played by Robinson), who in each generation acts as the dogsbody/punching-bag of the various Blackadders, and who decreases in intelligence (and in personal hygiene standards). Blackadder and Baldrick are also saddled with the company of a dim-witted aristocrat - Lord Percy Percy (Tim McInnerny) in the first two seasons, George (Hugh Laurie) in the third and fourth - whose presence he must somehow tolerate.

Each series was set in a different period of British history, beginning in 1485 and ending in 1917 (with one special set on New Year's Eve 1999) comprising six half-hour episodes. The first series, made in 1983, was called The Black Adder. This was followed by Blackadder II in 1986, Blackadder the Third in 1987, and finally Blackadder Goes Forth in 1989. In addition to these, three specials were also made: "Blackadder: The Cavalier Years" appeared as a 15-minute insert during the 1988 Comic Relief telethon; Blackadder's Christmas Carol was a 45-minute Christmas installment, broadcast the same year; and Blackadder: Back & Forth was a 30-minute film originally shown in a special cinema at the Millennium Dome throughout 2000, and later transmitted by Sky and the BBC. A pilot episode was filmed in 1982, but has never been shown on television. Featuring a different actor as Baldrick, the plot would be re-used for the episode "Born to Be King" in series 1. Although DVD releases never include the pilot episode (Atkinson specifically prevents it from being distributed, because he fears it will overshadow his acting skills), copies are known to circulate among fans."

I really want to get it on DVD, as well as the Bean episodes...

Ha. Yeah, this one is the only one I was missing.  I'd heard of it, but just never got it. Well, that and Pots and Pans things, I think I'll be making an adventure to Snuzz's myspace...Thanks Alex! And, yeah, what the hell is Hideaki? I've always wondered. And the real name for that polka is "Roll out the Barrel" we sing it at Brewers' Baseball games here in Mil-town.

I see you're lacking in, what could quite be my favorite live/random bullshit track- "Ben Folds' Nuts" Oh good god, hilarious.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Andy on September 04, 2006, 12:20:16 AM
- "Hideakis song" (not quite sure WHAT this is...)

... and Alex's crown falls off.

Hideaki's Song is something he did for a japanese radio station. To quote myself:

Hideaki's Song was a result of a radio show Ben did in Japan. Listeners sent in their love stories, and Ben then selected one and turned it into a song. It was made on an old synthesizer known as an omnichord.

The omnichord can also be heard at the start of the Bens' song 'Stop'.

Yeah, I know what "Roll out the barrel" is; it's an old wartime song. My Great-Grandad had a tape of wartime ditties and a (very bad) version of it was on there.

The Pots and Pans thing is called "Snuzz Demo". It features Ben on drums, piano and back-up vocals.

That sucks, man. For me it was just a boring enrollment procedure. The school are very slow with that kind of thing; is it just me, or when you're waiting in a queue, does everyone in front take ages and just generally chit-chat with the person when you personally don't want to be waiting around? Basically, the people in front of me had to spend ages selecting their courses and talking about their grades from last year. I just sat down, told them what I had and what I wanted and that was it... 45 minutes we had to wait though!!!

Other than that, there was good news:

- Hardly any year 11s are carrying on in sixth form, so year 12 is looking pretty empty in comparison to year 13 where I am. Less scary new strangers to talk to!!! Yay!!!
- Our nemesis from drama class has been banned from coming back.

There was also bad news:

- They painted our common room and now it looks shit.
- School starts tomorrow :(

Kidney 05, I enjoyed Mr. Bean as well, but I think Blackadder was better, and more clever. I do have the Bean movie, and I thought it was cute. I also liked Johnny English. I just think Rowan is a comic genius.

 Back to Ben: Interesting about how alphabetical Bens' songs are. That was a cool list, even though I'm not as knowledgable about Ben's music to know even half of the songs on that list.

I work in a theatre. A normal day that's not bad. I'm a lighting designer (student employment ... but you know... I still love it, probably more than I should). And that means before a show or an act comes goes on/comes in cat walks and the rigging system. Our main theatre was built ages ago, and the school doesn't really give a crap about us, focused on athletics, you know how that goes. So a lot of our stuff isn't to code, and an osha official'd probably keel over if they saw some of the ridiculous things we have.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on September 17, 2006, 01:27:25 PM
Thanks, Chloe!

Allison, working in the theatre like that sounds exciting. It's too bad you have to deal with some things that aren't quite up to code. Just be careful up there on those catwalks, ok?

least u got a job! minimum wage is what i get at the nursery, £4.25 cos im just 18 i need sumthing for uni tho that isnt thru the day theatre work sounds quite interesting admittedly!

eee roll on uni!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on September 17, 2006, 02:47:23 PM
Hah, but what 4.25 pounds (I can't make that symbol) is equal to nearly $8.50. And I'm at minimum wage of $5.15. That's over 10 pound. Tho, that's not counting in cost of living and all that. I'll be getting a raise of ten whole cents in November. Woo. I guess it's something. But when you're working less than 40 hours a month, that's only a 170 bucks a month approximately. Hence the reason I still live on campus.

I love working in the theater. I have two scars from it though. It also gives me the freedom to badtalk certain musical "guests" we had last year. Ugh. No good. "Famous" people. Or people who think they're famous.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on September 17, 2006, 03:53:24 PM
I'm getting a job as we speak. Minimum wage here is around $7.50, but since I'm 15 I can't work over 8 hours a week, and i have to clock out at 7:00pm....but i'll mostly be working breakfast and lunch on the weekends, so that shouldnt be a problem.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on September 17, 2006, 06:35:56 PM
Yeah. Well in Wisconsin where I grew up, and my family lives, and I live when not here at school minimum wage is something near 7.00. But here in Iowa, because no one lives here, or they're all farmers (stereyotyping on purpose) the gov't has not found it necessary to raise the minimum wage above the federal level. And, of course, my school wants to keep all the money it can get. "Non-profit" my ass.

Oh lordy lord what an awesome holiday.

Yeah, Bulgaria is a little random - not a lot of people are there at this time of year (which was fantastic) - it's mostly a winter skiing thing. We stayed in Bansko, at the foot of the Pirin mountain range. We saw bears, biked to the next town through the hills, went fishing (I caught the most - six in an hour!), and climbed the highest mountain in the Pirin range - the second highest is Bulgaria) - 2914 meters above sea level. It was seriously the most physically exhausing and beautiful thing I have ever done.

I just got to annouce Ben Folds Five on the radio for tomorrow. The song was (or will be) Don't Change Your Plans. God damn I love this station! I also got to play Ben Lee's We're All in This Together today, but I voice tracked it on Friday, so my days are all messed up.

If you wanna hear it, I think you can listen online at krvm.org. It'll be on 9:00am Pacific time. I have that whole hour, so yeah, you'll hear me too. Oh, and the song plays a little less than halfway into the hour. (Talking bout DCYP, not WAITT, which actually just aired!)

SinginShoe, I have Straight Outta Lynwood, and I love it! I love the dvd side, although I haven't watched all the videos yet. Al in the studio...enough to make this Al gal very, very happy. *sigh*


Right now, I'm listening to Al, who took over XM Radio from 7-8 pm Eastern. An online friend recorded it, and is playing it back now. Al played "Time" just a little while ago. :)

Other gems: White and Nerdy, Moving to Montana by Frank Zappa, and I Need a Nap, a song he did for a children's cd with Kate Winslet, although they recorded their parts seperately. Sounds lovely. :) Right now, it's Don't Download This Song. Yay, Al's on the radio!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: SinginJen on September 27, 2006, 03:17:47 PM
I love it.  I've had a particularly hard past few days...my cat of 14 years stopped eating and was found to have failing kidneys among other problems.  I went home last night to say goodbye.  Strangly enough, I had bought Al's CD a few hours before I found out; it turned out to help me a lot.  Definitely gave me something to smile about.

I love the in-studio video on the DVD, his daughter Nina at the end looks so cute!!

Chloe, how was BK?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on September 27, 2006, 04:41:41 PM
Going to see him in a few hours!

Craziest thing just happened. So G. Love went over to the radio station I have class at today (which I think I mentioned), and he gave my brother, my friend, and I free tix to his show tonight which starts 1 hour before BK. So basically we're gonna catch G. Love for a little, then haul ass over to BK. What a day!

Oh yeah, our school had a lockdown today too. Some kid had two hand guns with him! Scary!

By the way, G. Love is absolutely amazing. Really nice laid-back. WOW!

Wow, BK kicked some major ass.

EDIT: Trying to work out a set list, and I don't know the exact order, but these are the songs he played.

Wasted & Ready
Penny On a Train Track
Run
My Apartment
I Don't Know Why
Hospital Bed
Walk On Me
I Gotta Move
This Is War

Solo:
Hear Me Out
On My Way
Thirteen

Back with band:
Falling
How It Should Be (Sha Sha)
Family Tree
Sundress
The Rules (last song)

Encore:
I Need You Back (the awesomest thing ever!)

I got some pics, but I didn't have a digital camera, so I have to wait until I have money to develope these. But, my friend had a digital and that was the one we used to get pics with him on. Hopefully I'll get those soon!

I always feel as if he's treading that really thin line between long hair and mullet. It looks nice on the album art, but in those One Minute Pop songs he's always brushing it out of his face, and it just looked scraggldy. Yes, that's a word. I said so.

So, the joys of facebook have just told me that my Folds show that I was buying tickets to tomorrow (public sale to start tomorrow) is sold out.
Hopefully that's not true. Because that'll be very sad for me, I've got one show in the bag, but so long as I'm down there might as well have both shows that weekend, right? I really don't want to have to buy them off of ebay, or somewhere else. They're not on eBay yet either. Sadness. I'm hoping that it's just the box office was closed or something, and the person wasn't able to get tickets.

It's official. The show I was going to get tickets to today sold out with just students buying tickets on Friday. Hummm. We're thinking of going to the Tulsa show instead now.

in my heart, the 100th page shall always belong to you and your efforts, labrats. (what is your actual name again??)

watched BK on Carson...his hair is LONG oh goodness, longest I've ever seen.  somehow it makes him all the cuter, though, in a sort of kid/scruffy sort of way.  Carson introduced his song with "our little buddy, Ben Kweller" and earlier said that Ben had been on a few times even back when the show started.  he said Ben hugged him backstage and that "it was a little uncormfortable, but frankly I'm okay with that."  hahaha  he talked to Ben for a minute after break, and Ben was all beaming about Dorian and being so gracious about his band.  I kinda just want him to be my friend, really.

this was long.

I feel like...that's sort of weird.  Like, I sort of doubt they decided right there with Will Ferrell standing there. ?

This saddens me though:
"According to Australian Radio Host Andy Lee, the band made the decision to break up after their performance on The Late Show with David Letterman on July 19th, 2000."

by the way, saw Ben Kweller last night in Boston, and it was spectacular. we didn't get to meet him, which I was bummed about, but we were about 5 feet from the stage, so that worked for me.

since it was the end of the U.S. tour, all three bands performed Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" for the last song, which was amazing.

blurry pics for anyone interested!:

so basically homecoming was really fun. not the actual dance, but who i went with. when they played that one "ridin dirty" (or whatever it's called), i immediately thought Weird Al with White and Nerdy", it was great!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on October 29, 2006, 08:30:57 PM
That's pretty funny, Chloe! Al has done his job when you think of his song instead of the original. btw, the original is just called "Ridin'". *I only know because Marshall likes rap, and I heard that song a lot when it first came out* Man, I waited too long to carve this pumpkin, but I better get started. I'm entering it in a contest at Curves tomorrow. I'll post a pic once I get it carved.

First of all Grom, I'm not a pagan god, I actually am God.  I just forgot to capitalize. SO SUE ME.  pff, grammar fanatics.

Finally, here are some of me-as-Weird Al pics!  I look like a slightly bloated version of Al because I'm wearing two shirts underneath the Hawaiian one (it was cold out!), but it came out alright from people reactions, anyhow. 

my attempt at the Al pose!

attaching the accordian was tricky, but the scarf did well enough

whee! (in my room)
http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e40/singinshoe/Halloween%2006/DSCF2847.jpg


The accordian is "The Little Wood Accordian" that I found in this hip shop near my school about three days before the event.  It doesn't have the piano-like keys or any flats/sharps, but it's actually a functioning accordian.  (Which provided a lot of entertainment in my apartment that day.)  I figured out how to play Twinkle Twinkle, Mary Had A Little Lamb, the first two bars of Phantom Planet's California, and the chorus of S.O.S.  And my friend discovered the Hanes commercial song.  I'm thinking of taking this sh*t on the road.

Fun times!

Well, if it does, you have Ben to thank for that.

Maybe Dr. Dre.

And Singin Shoe. Nice costume! I'm totally just a college student for Halloween, which is scary enough as it is.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: algonacchick on November 02, 2006, 05:22:11 AM
hehe, great costume, Jenny! You did well with the "eyebrow of doom". That little accordion is really cute. Nice review as well. Al actually first got national airplay in 1979, when Dr. D played "My Bologna", therefore, he has been eligible to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2004. We're working to try and get him there. Also, there is a misprint in the cd booklet. That car is actually a '67 Non-SS Impala, and indeed a low-rider. hehe!  Bo, Al's c*ckatiel, was also responsible for making weasel sounds. You can clearly hear him chirp at least 3 or 4 times. hehe! I love Straight Oytta Lynwood, and your review is one of the best I've read from a fan!  8)

ETA: wtf? They censored the specie name for Al's bird. Alrighty, then!

Here are some pics from Halloween.

Me in my Ren Fair costume:

Well, SinginShoe, technically, they're still right, because on weirdal.com, it says Al and the band will be performing, so yes, it is their first Tonight Show appearance as a group in 21 years. Al said in his blog that he hopes he doesn't pass out *probably from all the fast singnig*. You can do it, Al!!! This is gonna be so great!

Uhm, I got free tix to a Ben Taylor (son of James) show tonight, but I don't know if I should go. The positives: I go to a Ben Taylor show, and also won't feel bad for accepting free tix from the radio station. The negatives: I'll probably have to go alone, it's a school night, I don't know if I can get a ride there. The thing is though, I really want to go. I met him today and he's really nice, and I like his music....Tough decision

I have a question for all the computer savvy peoples out there. How do I take my files from my C: Drive to my D: drive? My C: is pretty full, and I'm trying to take it to my D: since I never use it. Is there a free way? If so, feel free to tell me :)
If there is not a free way, advice on programs(etc.) would be helpful. Thanks, dudes.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: GromReaper on November 11, 2006, 06:14:59 PM
D: drive looks perpetually unhappy.

Anyway, (assuming you have Windows XP or something) it's really easy...further assuming you want to move things like music, video and picture files.  Just open up Windows Explorer (ie, My Computer) and then go to the folder with all the crap you wanna move.  THEN open up another window of My Computer and go to where you wanna dump the files on D:.  THEN!!! right-click-and-drag the files from C: to D: and when it pops up with the "Copy here/Move here/whatever the hell else" menu, choose "Move here" and watch as you have heartlessly torn them out of their happy home of YEARS and dumped them into their new home without ANY warning.

You're pure evil.  Poor little files.

so I need to share this with all of you,
a new Ben Folds fan has been born.

my apartment-mate, whose room is across from mine, now thinks Ben is the man and is blasting "Rockin' the Suburbs" literally as I type this.

he was looking at my copy of RtS lying on top of my CD player, since I had it playing, and he was like, "Who's this?"  I told him Ben Folds, and he's like, "Ah.  I've only heard a couple by him. What's good on here?" he likes humorous stuff, so I had him listen to the title track.

not-so-long story short, within 48 hours he's played "RtS" about 20 times, watched about a half dozen videos online (making two other housemates watch the Steve Irwin one), downloaded a bunch of other stuff, and it's in general hilarious.

*SUPER BEN NERD ALERT*
I've noticed recently that Robert/Darren's "oh, ohohoh ohh"s in "Video Killed the Radio Star" sound quite similar to Frally's "oh"s in "Make Me Mommy."
yep.

also, my hall-friend here has been driving everyone crazy by (still) blaring "RtS," "Bitches Ain't Shit," and about four different "Rock this Bitch" versions throughout the day.  (he's not a terribly deep man, as you can see.)  it's kind of hilarious, when he hears me come in and walk up the stairs he immediately puts it on.  lol

Haha. Oh man, in comparison to Ben essentially being outlawed in our dorm room because my roommate tires of him. How, I'm not quite sure. But, you know, I tire of her music, but am I allowed to say anything? Noooooo. Of course not.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Liv on November 15, 2006, 10:46:34 PM
Haha, I made my friend a mix CD a few days ago, because I'm into lots of rock/punk/*whisper*emo/hardcore, and lately she's been getting into a bit of (soft-)rock herself instead of the Top 40 stuff she usually listens to. Anyway, so she wanted me to give her some good songs she might like, and I put some Ben on there. Hehehe. She wasn't too pleased about that.
And I quote, "I was listening to your CD, and I heard this piano come on, and I checked the song list and was like *beep* it's *beeping* Ben Folds."

I've only been here since right after my 20th birthday too.... something like the 13th of March, after my epic Ben Folds Styled Spring Break. I came to post the set list because Kelly'd told me to do so on the .org, and now thesuburbs is my Ben home. Crazy how that works.

I love the winter. Only if it snows. There's no point if it's cold if there's no snow.

However, here in the uppermidwest we've only had one snow, and it was melted by the next day. Sad. It was all pretty and wonderful! And then it was gone. And I cried. Not really. But in my heart I missed the snow. And I still do. It's nearly December and it's RAINING right now. This is not allowed.

I like snow as we only get it occasionally in Virgina.
Amusingly, no one here knows how to drive in it as a result of the relative rarity of the snow and they mob the grocery stores and buy enough bread and milk to last weeks (even if it's only half an inch of snow predicted).

Think I might feel a bit differently about the snow if I lived in Boston or Minnesota or something.

But it sure is pretty when it's falling.
And I heartily agree with whoever commented that snow was the best reason for cold (but that cold without snow sucks).

Oh, and in Wisconsin, after the first snow fall they all act as if they've never seen it before. Which is complete horse crap. Have! HAVE! I miss blizzards though. Haven't had a real heavy snow fall total in years. And that makes me very sad.

Heavy snowfall in Virginia equates to just about anything more than 2 inches.

We get more ice storms, and not all that many of those.   Those ice storm mofos are treacherous though.

I'm currently debating whether or not to make my livejournal all "friends only" or not ... there are pros and cons to both sides of the audience.  The thing has been around for 5 years now and is still going strong.

Dunno whether to be pleased or embarrassed (or both) about that really.

I've had mine since about this time 03 I think, so I'm only at three years. But, the differences from being a senior in High School to a Junior in College are hilariously insane.

I also went Friends Only in March of 2005. And had to turn around and make all my old posts f-o which takes forever, by the way. However, I feel so much more secure typing in my journal now than I did before. You'd have to be pretty talented to get into my lj. Unless I friend you, and then; WELCOME TO MY INSANITY.

Heh. If y'all didn't notice I'm Weasleyaholic over there in the livejournal world, so if you check the ben community I'm pretty frequenly posting things from here there, and things from there come here. And all that jazz.


Wow, what a long post for the RRII thread.

Imogen Heap discovers she has boobs? That was nice Andy.

Now when are you going to just make a lj account so you can get my responses back to all your silly little posts throughout the Ben comm? Huuummm?

Well, apparently they get deleted. Which is a shame because anyone unfortunate enough to try and read that 'magazine' (or whatever the hell it's trying) to be could do with a laugh.

Oui! Le jour de Saint Nicolas!


That's where I first heard about it, was French Class. I really think about St. Nick's day as Christmas early for spoiled rich kids of suburbia. Yes. From suburbia, I am, however, I'd never heard of it when we moved out of one and into the riiiiiiiiicccccccccchhhhhhhhh one.

Also how I found out Santa wasn't real. Because if St. Nick wasn't real, therefore Santa was not. Damn childhood was ruined forever! FOREVER I TELL YOU!

I don't celebrate St. Nicks but its what a lot of the Dutch kids have over here and in the Netherlands and probably other places. They put out a shoe by the fireplace, and some carrots for the horses (i think) and some beer for black peter (who used to scare me). Then they get sweets and chocolates and probably some presents in their shoes. But I swear the belgians are starting to forget about St. Nicks and are just celebrating Christmas.

so I just taught a fifth grade class a lesson on writing rap music.
and I incorporated a Vanilla Ice song, which the kids found hilarious.  (you KNOW your music is bad when 10 year olds don't even take you seriously.)

this is why I want to teach.  lol
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on December 07, 2006, 09:29:34 AM
Rules of writing raps:

1. One must mention their bitches/hoes several times throughout the prose; the mentioning of ones bitch/ho (preferably both, in plural) is an integral part of writing a rap song and a defining characteristic of the genre.
2. Talking about "drive-bys", drug taking and various other crimes is acceptable, nay, encouraged.
3. A successful rap, if released to CD, must at the very least contain a "Parental Advisory" sticker, if not a "Governmental Advisory" sticker.
4. Using made up words is fine.
5. You must rhyme the word "streets" with "beats" at least once in every song.

Was the lesson anything like that?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...

except #5 was replaced with "dance" and "pants."

btw, if anybody's interested, Grammy nominees announced:
http://music.yahoo.com/read/news/37845164

of course we all know that they look at about 5% of the music out there, but it's amusing.  The Fray got nominated for a few (what a crazy year they had) and even Flaming Lips.  I'll let you know if I see anything else interesting.

ooh and Weird Al! of course.  haha, he even got nominated for Best Surround Sound Album.
(and Dixie Chicks and Roseanne Cash and Keb' Mo and OKGo for the video...wheee)

I found out about them a few years ago when there first album came out. I saw the video for Get Over It, and was like, "whoa, that's sweet". And so then i bought the album. "You're So Damn Hot" is so damn catchy!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on December 07, 2006, 11:25:12 PM
It's all too damn catchy. Though, I loved their myspace bulletin about the nominee. I'd love to see them live. But, they'd have to come where I am. I only travel for Ben.... Folds. I think I have to if I'll ever see Kweller though. And that's also a must.

I don't need to tell you how shitting amazing OKGO are. I've seen them twice now, most recently supporting Motion City Soundtrack in the London Astora I think. First time, I kid you not, was in the Bar next to Islington Academy. Andy, you'll know it as the place The Crash rocked our faces off. However, at OKGO you couldn't move for the number of people in there. Front freaking row. I could have hit the guitarist. Apparently they're coming back to England next year. I'm so there.

Off their new CD, my favourite is definately 'Do what you want'. I need to pick up the re-release of it. I want that DVD!

i never notice that sort of thing.  i get used to the sucky tuning.  but i came in and the guy goes "your piano is pretty flat".

i almost told him "your FACE is pretty flat" but then i relized i would probably die if i did that...

anyway, he fixed it right up.  and i played with it open all day.  i think i said that already but, nothing's more fun then watching the hammers hit.

not only are we incredibly close in post number, but we also have something else in common: I'm well known for substituting the phrase "your FACE" in sentences to make (usually poor) insults.  I get a lot of eye-rolls for that.  it's fun.

we obviously have a cosmic connection here.

Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on December 15, 2006, 01:23:00 PM
Erm, doesn't EVERYBODY do that? I know I do. But not necessarily when people insult me... Just if they saw something like "Alex, your shoe's untied" to which I respond "Your face is untied". I also sometimes say "Your mum" instead in those situations, but I never do that in sentences where it's actually insulting...

Good stuff. I'm seeing Fyfe Dangerfield of Guillemots live tonight in a lovely tiny venue (where I ALWAYS meet the performers; last time we were there, me and Neil chatted to Megan Hickey of the Last Town Chorus - who knew who I was from our internet chats - and she took us backstage to the dressing room to get us badges and stuff. We also talked with her supports/backing band - Simon J. Alpin, who's played with Teenage Fanclub and the Willard Grant Conspiracy, and Chris Rushton, who's just starting out. All 3 were lovely and Chris got really excited when I mentioned we were seeing Ben in January... Anyway, back to the point...) and it's Fyfe's first ever solo show - supposedly just him with a piano. He's going to release an album next year, or so say the rumours, and just released a limited (750 copies) 7" split "single". However, during a bout of e-mail exchange on Friday, he told me he hasn't the foggiest what he's going to play!

The supports are also really good - Fyfe's brother, Al, who has supported the MoTs every time I've seen them headlining, and Richard Burke, a local accoustic singer-songwriter who spent the late '90s in a local band called The Starries. Again, I correspond with both of these guys over the internet (it's a wonderful thing, the internet) and it should be, all in all, a really great show.

by the way, if anybody's interested, Ben Kweller just put out a whole bunch of new tour dates around the U.S. (in addition to less-newer Australian ones).  He's touring with Gomez, but both doing full sets, apparently. 
He's coming to one of my favorite venues about 15 minutes from where I go to school, which would be awesome, but considering I've seen him three times in a little over a year, I'm not sure if I want to shovel out another $20 (need to save money for Foldsy in May, who I haven't seen since Nov.

happy belated birthday, kidney!!!

by the way, if anybody's interested, Ben Kweller just put out a whole bunch of new tour dates around the U.S. (in addition to less-newer Australian ones).  He's touring with Gomez, but both doing full sets, apparently. 
He's coming to one of my favorite venues about 15 minutes from where I go to school, which would be awesome, but considering I've seen him three times in a little over a year, I'm not sure if I want to shovel out another $20 (need to save money for Foldsy in May, who I haven't seen since Nov. '05!!)...we'll see though.



I saw those. And apparently this Ben does not love me as much as the other one does. Booo..... I'm thinking about making the treck out to the Ohio date. If anyone will go with me. I'm not driving 7 and a half hours for a show by myself. I'm not that lame......



Normally.

Everybody got your new Snuzz album? :P

If not, you totally should. It's a really good album. Not that I got a special thanks in the sleeve notes or anything... ;)

It has some awesome new versions of classic Snuzz songs, including an amazing revamped version of Pots and Pans classic "Leanne", plus 5 new songs (my favourite of which is "Love of the game", a song about being a musician, but also of note are "The World can't wait" - a protest song against Bush, "Theme People", "Brightest Star" and "I hate work" (it's a cover song).

It's worth getting... Everybody write to him and request it on his myspace = www.snuzz.com

You're such a loser Alex. Not that I got a special thanks.... Hahahah. Loser.


And, yeah, I've had my album for a week. And, "Love of the Game" definately had me all tight throated, it's so sad and ... aww. Definately my first favorite track on the album.

But I love the album. Ironically, Snuzz is the only artist my roommate and I agree on. Yeah. How's that? I love the album, it's in my nice little pile of CDs I've bought this school year.... which keeps growing, and it shouldn't, I'm poor.... but, must. buy. music. Aghh... not that I wasn't going to buy it. Annnyyywayys. I probably could gush over this album for forever.

And, last.fm needs more Snuzz listeners. There's only 97 of us. I think I'm ALWAYS the top listner in a week, by just listening to one album even....  But then again, he's flown up my charts to be in my top 10 over all artist chart. Can't help it. It's good.

2. To have gotten down at least 27 lbs by the time Al tours the U.S.

Btw, any lucky Aussies going to see Weird Al when he comes to Australia in March? I would so fly there, just because I haven't been, and the last show *3/24 in Hobart* is the day before my birthday.

I am seeing Al this summer (in the states)!  I am determined since I missed him back in '04, and it's pretty silly that I haven't seen him live yet (since I've liked him for about 10 years).

I could do without snow, although, it would make this cold snap slightly more bearable, and it would look pretty. I'd just rather go through a 40-50 degrees a day winter.

Hm. I was just contemplating this while making lunch.

Me being known as the piano genius I am (ha. *cough*), every time I'm at someone's house with a piano or in a music room at school etc. someone ALWAYS says, "Play us something, Liv."

Now, playing some Ben usually gets me "Are you just bashing random keys? Don't break the piano" or "That sounds like something from The Sims" (don't ask because I have no idea), or "What song is that? (I answer with 'It's by Ben Folds') *groan* Not him again..."

While stuff like Coldplay and Evanescence are usually welcomed with squeals of "I love this song!" accompanied with mass sing-a-longs around a campfire...

Enough rambling and to the point of this post: Does anyone have any suggestions for good songs to play at times like these?

I've noted that stuff like Mozart, Bach and Barry Manilow go down well with people like teachers and my aunts (aka the oldies). But what to play for a group of Top-40-worshipping, teenage girls?

He's doing a "Farewell" tour. (tear) and I knew I had to catch the show, seeing Ted as Jesus would, well, complete a lot of my life. Anyway, so the tour came through a city near where I go to school, and my roommate's parents have season tickets, and companion tickets, but they, sillyly gave them away... so Hannah (my roommate) and I drove 300 miles back to Milwaukee to see the show last night.

And, being the pro of waiting at stage doors, went to the back of the theatre, and eventually they even brought us inside (something Ben's people should learn to do, heh) and we stood in line for a good hour, but, there we were, and it was all free. And I got a hug. And, oh, I was all fluttery and fangirly. And yeah.


I still don't see the "Underground" relationship to JCS, but, whatever. I can tell you the first time that I saw Ben (that I knew what I was talking about) when the Overture to JCS came on as the preshow music, Ben won himself many a point that night. Yeaaaahhhh...... I have a bit of a musical thing. Yyyyeaah.

It just puts into perspective how selfish people really are... Also, these people are the ones who always complain how pathetic people are for getting excited over things like this, yet, somehow, they are the first ones to have finished reading the book!

i think they just denied raising minimum wage in Louisiana.  it's still $5.15.
but, in all honesty, the cost of living isn't exactly a great deal here, so i don't blame them.

Post by: algonacchick on February 04, 2007, 03:17:52 PM
Singin Shoe, don't worry. Al will definitely post more dates as they get booked. I was actually surprised they were posted so early. There aren't any Michigan dates yet, either, and I know he plays Rochester Hills twice every tour, so don't despair.

btw, this is amusing: If you go to Al's myspace page:

http://www.myspace.com/weirdal

there's a link about free Weird Al ringtones. I listened to them, and they're all funny. I just wish I had a cell phone of my own. Hubby has one, but he would not be a happy camper if I put a Weird Al ringtone on it.

Hey guys, I need help with a serious dilemma...

Ben Kweller is playing here as part of a 2 day festival in March/April.  The promoters are saying BK is on Sat 31/3 but BK's website says he's playing Sun 1/4.  Can't afford tix to both days, so which do I believe???

Oops, suddenly occured to me that those date may confuse my US friends.  Do the switcheroo and you'll get the idea.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on February 04, 2007, 06:09:25 PM
Go post about it on the BK site, there are people there that are pretty smart/physically involved with BK's tour.... and they might be able to straighten it out for you, wish I could help!

Ben Kweller's first album, Sha Sha is brilliant, but I'm not so sure about the later stuff - I was really disappointed with his self-titled last album, which came out last year.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: SinginJen on February 08, 2007, 04:51:23 PM
his newest is more of an acquired taste kind of deal, definitely more mellow than his older stuff.  he was going for the whole introspective album thing.  he also RTS-ed it, played all the instruments himself.  but don't let it fool you, he's still rocking out live.  I kind of love Sha Sha and On My Way equally, I think.  also he's just a genuinely really nice guy.

Yeah - he's definitely still rocking live. I saw him in November and by the end of the show his bass player was balancing his bass upside down on one hand, whilst still playing it (which I don't think should be physically possible).

On My Way - I really like the title track but I'm not as keen on the rest of it as I am on Sha Sha.

Maybe I'll rediscover his latest stuff - I was just disappointed because I heard a couple of tracks (Sundress and Penny On The Train Track) and really liked them but then when I got the album a lot of the rest of the songs didn't seem as good.

I kept forgetting to follow up with my earplug review, but I wound up getting those EarLove ones and they work pretty well.  I was worried about the music being too muffled but they really are fine.  I used them for a BK show and a Ted Leo show, both super close to the speakers/stage, and I experienced NO buzzing afterward.  It was pretty glorious.  I got the clear ones and my friends never even noticed I put them in.  Good stuff.

Chloe, my kitty of 14 years passed away in October and I was pretty devistated as well; after that much time they become family.  I bet Pinky and your friends are chasing that big mouse in the sky!  my thoughts are with you. : )

Russian's cheaper?  It was $55 dollars American...I don't know how that converts, but I feel it was worth it (the American model usually goes for around 70).

Oh, and when I bought the pedal, I was like "I'd like the Russian model...I hear it's better for basses."  The guy at the music store was really impressed that I knew that.

This is very true (third time lucky with Kweller I mean). Let me explain...

In "early" 2006 - meaning I don't remember the exact date - BK came to the UK. He played 1 show, in London. When I found out about said show, it was too late; tickets had sold out, and it was at an 18+ venue (I was, at that time, 17), so, needless to say, I was pissed off. Probably more pissed off than I was recently when essentially the same thing happened with Bright Eyes (though, I was still pissed off). Because, y'know, London is all the way down there - aside from population, it isn't a logical place to play if you can only do one gig (of course, the population is absolutely massive, and London is "easy" to get to - though expensive and time consuming - so it is really logical, but I don't live there, so it clearly isn't). Anyway, me = sad.

A few months later, BK came back (September) to do a few more dates, NOT all in London. None near me, still, and all 18+ venues. I did not feel joyous, for it was unlikely that he'd come to the UK THREE TIMES in a year, wasn't it?

Turns out it wasn't, and he did. And he played Birmingham, at an 18+ venue, a fortnight after I turned 18. Hooray.

The moral of this story is to not develop an interest in music until you are old enough and rich enough to travel long distances to see gigs.

The past two days, it's been warm.  I mean, for Ohio, anyways.  We hit the 70s on Tuesday which was fantastic.  When I look outside my window this morning (being careful not to look over at my roommate and his girlfriend in the bed across the room), what do I see within my lovely parking lot view?

Snow.  Ahh, snow.  I'm going from shorts and flip flops to jeans and a jacket...plus most my warm clothes are out in my trunk (It got warm and I thought "Well, I won't be needing these anymore!")

Anyone want to fly me somewhere where it's not warm one day and snowing the next?

don't EVER.  i repeat EVER.  come to Louisiana.
...unless, of course, you're coming for some drunken debauchery during Mardi Gras.  that's acceptable.  ...or if you're coming for the food.
otherwise, stay as far away as possible.
when i graduate college, i plan on moving to a state that has 4 distinct seasons.  maybe some place like Portland, OR.

Well, I do love me some good ol' drunken debauchery.  Like tomorrow, for instance.

Might I recommend the midwest?  We don't have oceans, but we have the great lakes (which then flow to the St. Lawrence seaway which eventually flows out to the north Atlantic).  Then, if you ever need to visit family back home, you can just hop on the Ohio river and take that to the Mississippi river and take that back home.

Does anybody still ride the Mississippi on a raft?  Does anybody know?

mmm...st. patty's day!  i'm going to a parade in New Orleans.  it shall be fun!  drunken bebauchery for all!

i was actually thinking about the midwest.  we'll see how i like it when i go to Illinois in a few weeks.

i don't think anybody still rides on the Mississippi on a raft.  at least, not that i know of.  but then again, i think if you touched the water from the Mississippi in Louisiana, your arm would fall off from gangreen.  lol

So, I'm an idiot.  Last night, the night BEFORE St. Patty's day, I went to a friend's place and had...well, let's just say a lot.  I'm normally the "have a few, but never get like REALLY drunk type person.  Well, I guess it hit me hard last night.  So now I'm hungover on St. Patty's day, which is depressing.

Worse than that, my parents are swinging through today on the way back to Columbus from Toledo.  Damn.

Post by: whenlabratsgobad on March 18, 2007, 05:53:15 AM
Okay, so you wanna know how I spent my St. Patty/Paddy's Day?

Sober.

No joke.  After the night before, I just wasn't feeling alcohol.  I would have loved to be drunk, but I had no desire to go through the process.  I did get to see a guy I know (I won't say "friend" because he's a total jackass) bodyslam a chair.  It was kind of amusing, but earlier he was punching walls and trying to break bottles over his head.

He'd do that sober though.  He's one crazy-ass mofo.

So that's the story of the sad American college student.  I had beer in my messenger bag.  Instead I drank Kroger bottled water, refilling it from the kitchen sink.

Agreed.  Except that I already went to the worst class (Geology lab).  We stood out in the cold rain for half an hour setting up meters for a seismograph, only for our TA to discover that the seismograph wasn't working.  Provided a decent "Steve is brilliant" quote, though.

TA: It's not working ::flips switches::
Me: Is your power source charged?
TA: Yes, it is charged.
(Later)
TA: Okay, this isn't going to work.  I don't think the battery is charged.
Me: Didn't I say that five minutes ago?
TA: No.
Me: I said "is your power source charged?"
TA: It's the battery
Me: The battery is your power source
TA: (silence)

Class sucks, class sucks, class sucks.  Four more classes today (Mondays are busy), then teaching a class on cameras, then writing a paper.

I think this thread has become my new place to complain about stuff.

I've got a early 90s Buick, surely that can suit as a "bus" it's sure as hell boat like. And it's already got a Folds bumpersticker...... we should repaint it. Yes.

Hanny, you're the only person on this board that could make a post that's completely off-topic in a thread called "Random ramblingsII..."  I've even tried.  I tried to bribe Melissa with bottled water to write a paper about R.E.M., for pete's sake (no, not our Pete)!

On the "Ben Folds with his Crew of Fans" tour I'll be security focused on bootleggers...it'd go down something like this:

Man walks through gate carrying a large bag
Me:  Sir, I'm going to have to check that bag.
Man:  This?  Oh, it's just uhh...diapers.
Me:  Diapers?
Man:  Yup, just diapers.
Me:  Sir, you realize you don't have a child with you, right?
Man:  ...Who said they were for a child?
Me:  ...Eew.  Sir, open the bag.

Man opens bag to reveal a small, VHS-C camcorder

Me:  Diapers, eh?
Man:  It's not what it looks like.
Me:  Cram it.  It's punks like you with your shit cameras that make me sick at night.
Man:  What?
Me:  Sir, that's a VHS-C camcorder.  VHS-C.  Do you even care about Ben?
Man:  What do you mean?
Me:  Do you like sh*tty, off-color bootlegs with horrible sound and tracking issues?
Man:  No...
Me:  Then why on earth would you shoot a concert with a VHS-C.  Digital-8 at the least, sir.  It's not like a consumer MiniDV is that expensive, you cheap ass.

Whenlabratsgobad: Protecting the world from low-quality bootlegs!

Scrubs just surpassed The Office to be my favorite show. Just thought I'd share that.

The Office US or UK version?  Scrubs beats the US version of The Office but is on par with the UK version of The Office, for my money at least.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on March 30, 2007, 06:31:38 PM
Well, I'm more in love with the US version, since I've watched it longer, but I do like the UK version.
Oh, and to clarify, I was referring to the US version.

That would be all of us without an actual life.

I watched Jeeves and Wooster this morning, which provides a slightly bizarre contrast with what Hugh Laurie's doing now in House. It's almost as if it's not the same person.

Holy hell, season 6 of Scrubs sucks.  Apart from Cheers, Arrested Development is the only 1/2 hour sitcom to not disappoint me as time goes by.  Mainly because AD never got a chance to turn bad.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on April 01, 2007, 03:54:48 AM
AD is genius. I also love Curb your Enthusiasm. I only watch those on DVD, though, 'cause they're not shown often over here.

My most frequently viewed programmes are Coronation Street (have to watch Corrie - it's the law in Britain) and CSI (any version), though the latter is primarily on DVD. I occasionally watch music programmes late at night on Channel 4, as sometimes they have good people on them. Sometimes. Deal or no deal is a must - freakin' simple game, but highly addictive. Dr. Who. Also, comedy stuff, though nothing in particular at the moment (The League of Gentlemen is a firm favourite, as are Spaced, Black Books, etc. Little Britain has gone majorly downhill). I sometimes watch the news. That's about it, really.

EDIT: SPOILER ALERT! (thanks, Andy)

I thought the latest episode of Scrubs ("My No Good Reason") was a pretty good one. Except for the fact that I love Laverne (she has like one line a show and it always makes me laugh), and she got in a coma.
I also wonder who's gonna die because I heard that someone will die this season. And well, judging by her situation, I think it might be Laverne. BUT, Jordan is supposed to be giving birth this week on the show, and I think she might go. Seeing as the actress playing her is married to the creator of the show, and apparently needs more time at home for the kids...

Scrubs is one of those shows that I never care enough to purposely watch.  If I'm sitting in front of a TV with it on, I will watch it and enjoy it.  But I just never care enough to put it on myself.  I've probably seen a handful of episodes.  I like Zach Braff's stuff in general, though.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on April 01, 2007, 08:32:44 PM

Probably because he's been developing it in every thing he's been in.

I do like his character, but everything I've seen with him in he's been pretty much exactly the same.

Case in point: Rob Schneider's 'The Animal'.

That was the point; I like him, but he always plays the same character. I suppose you could almost say the same about Simon Pegg; Tim in Spaced and Shaun from Shaun of the Dead were essentially the same guy. That said, Nicholas Angel in Hot Fuzz and the bookstore manager he played in Black Books were "different", but played the same physically (i.e. the characters were different to Pegg's other characters in attitude/persona, but they talked the same, etc.).

I have no idea about any upcoming Sandler films, but an example of this theory in motion - "8 crazy nights". Okay, so he played a few characters in that, but the "main" character was even drawn to look exactly like him!

haha, that's very true. and the new Sandler film i heard is called something like "reign over me" or something, and it's about some guy who's entire family died in 9/11...something like that. it actually looks pretty good. they talked about it on the daily show a couple days ago.

Following the theme of this thread, this post has nothing to do with anything, other than a request that if anybody should happen to have the MP3 of Rufus Wainwright's "Complainte de la butte" (from "Moulin Rouge") that they fling it my way. Basically, I'm uploading studio versions of setlists from shows I've been to to my iPod, and I can't find my copy of that song...

Also, I'm rather looking forwards to his new album... :) I hope Ben Lee's new album has that "Surrender" song on it...
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on April 02, 2007, 09:19:50 AM
I have that Rufus song somewhere, I think. If I find it, I'll send it to you.

And about the BL album, I'm really really looking forward to it. I want "Blush" to be on it, which it will. I like that he posts album updates on his blogs. More musicians should do that!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on April 02, 2007, 09:23:01 AM
Speaking of Ben Lee, anybody have "Confide in me", his cover of Kylie Minogue I believe? It took me and my dad ages to work out what it was, but we couldn't find the track (I know it's out there, though!)
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on April 02, 2007, 09:25:38 AM
I have that one too...I'll send them both in a few. I was on the BL board a few weeks ago, and someone posted a whole heck of a lot of rare tracks and b-sides, and that was one of them. It isn't the greatest quality, but it is good.

Also, I've seen "Reign Over Me" and "Punch-Drunk Love" and Adam Sandler is amazing in both.  His dramatic talents are little known, but he is definitely talented.

I plan to see Reign Over Me sometime soon (I have to see Blades of Glory first, though) if, for no other reason, because Adam Sandler looking like Bob Dylan is amusing.  Maybe it's the lack of sleep.  Maybe it's my respect for Dylan.  Maybe it's just me.

Hey, Talladega Nights accomplished what it set out to do.  Sasha Baron Cohen played a non-Ali G Show character, John C. Reiley got to play yet another comical character, Will Ferrell got to play another egotistical funnyman, and it spawned some great lines:

Hi, I'm Ricky Bobby and if you don't chew Big Red then f*** you!
I wanna go fast!
If you ain't first, you're last
'Cause I like to party
Shake 'n Bake

I do love Anchorman though.  Granted I work in a news station, but I still believe it's a great film.

If I had any reason to, I'd want to write a thesis on the 'Frat Pack.'  The connections, cameos, and where they all met.  Decide who's technically part of the pack and who're just Apatow's people.

I don't know, I find it interesting.

Oh yeah, and if anyone heard about me doing the 48 Hour Film Festival at my school (I don't remember if I mentioned that or not on here), my team won last night.  First place.

Louisiana 5th Graders Have Sex in Class
After posting a lookout when the teacher left a classroom unattended for about 15 minutes on March 27, four fifth grade students in Spearsville, La., had sex with each other in front of their classmates. The Associated Press reports that the students, two 11-year-old girls, a 12-year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy, have been charged with obscenity, a felony. The 11-year-old boy who served as the alleged lookout has been charged with being an accessory.

my wireless router randomly decided to stop working the other day, so i've been stealing internet from other networks around me. 
you know how you can see other people's music through itunes?
well, apparently the kid i'm stealing internet service from is a fan of Folds.  he has BFL, RtS, SfS, and WAEA.  it almost makes me feel bad for stealing from him.  :P

Haha, my friend Lakhvir (who is a bit of a tard) took the laptop the school gave him (they gave us all laptops, which sounds cool in principle, but is actually quite lame when you find out they're pretty useless...) and didn't have an internet connection, but discovered someone in his neighbourhood had wireless, so uses that... Pretty smart, considering it's Lakhvir.

Ever heard of OurTunes?  Look it up...you can download (very quickly) the music of people you're on the same network with.  It's a beautiful thing.

As for the moving, try Ohio.  We'll get more people, then start a Ben Folds Commune; a place for Ben fans to stop as they travel across the country following Ben.

Plus a hot tub.

i had OurTunes downloaded for a long time.  it worked marvelously.  especially when you're using the same wireless network as 30,000 more students at one time.  :-)

i find that OurTunes, however, no longer works with the newer versions of iTunes.  they block it.  either that or LSU got smart and blocked it.

Hi, John,

All right, all right. I'm a music fiend, but have, to this point, not expanded that universe to include much Ben Folds. You have finally persuaded me to do so; therefore, I need your Jedi guidance through Ben's offerings. Where do I start? Full-length CD or mix? BFF or solo stuff or both? My goodness, what would this world be without music and hockey?

Thanks,
Amy Matthew

A good place to start is Ben's live CD, then his two solo full releases, "Songs for Silverman" and "Rockin' The Suburbs." After that, buy "Sunny 16" and "Speed Graphic." Finally, go see him play with the Boston Pops on Wednesday, May 9.

Louisiana 5th Graders Have Sex in Class
After posting a lookout when the teacher left a classroom unattended for about 15 minutes on March 27, four fifth grade students in Spearsville, La., had sex with each other in front of their classmates. The Associated Press reports that the students, two 11-year-old girls, a 12-year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy, have been charged with obscenity, a felony. The 11-year-old boy who served as the alleged lookout has been charged with being an accessory.

On the subject of band DVDs - The Dresden Dolls are releasing a DVD of the two nights they did last year at the Roundhouse in London. I was there one of the nights and it was a truly awesome show (probably the best I've ever been to), so I can heartily recommend the DVD (if you like the Dolls, of course).

Lucky I married an Englishman so I have accommodation available with his extended family.  Or is Andy putting us all up at his place??

Allison, do you think we can convince BK to open for Ben's gig at Andy's in order to quell our BBKK?  If we're going to travel all that way it's the least BK could do...
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...

no no, haven't you guys heard? it's going to be The Bens reunion (with extended Folds set), so yeah BK will be there.  and we're all going to meet up with the three afterward at Andy's for a karaoke sleepover party.  I probably just got the invitation quicker than you did, the mail being what it is these days.

you missed him by about a year; he was touring nearly (literally) everyday for most of 2005-early 2006.
hence the later tour t-shirt, "ALWAYS ON TOUR".  glad to see he's back to recording, though!
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on April 10, 2007, 06:54:27 PM
Yeah. I missed Odd Men Out by like four days or something like that, that tour started just after I became a Folds fan, and therefore not enough time for me to even know who The Bens were, let alone Kweller or Lee.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: perthgirl on April 10, 2007, 09:51:19 PM
OK, so we've got a Bens reunion show at Andy's for Burbians-only, including an extra-long solo set by Monsieur Folds and a karaoke sleep-over party to follow.  And Chudley and I will pretend we know nothing about BK's contribution for fear of  TCoCCBBKK striking.

Hope you've got a nice big back yard or ballroom-sized living area at your place Andy...

Ben should take any and all requests, too. There should be no setlist, we should tell him what to play, as it's OUR party. Also, after, he'll burn free CDs for us of the soundboard recording.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...

More special guests, I think - Rufus Wainwright for them to do Careless Whisper.

Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on April 11, 2007, 06:21:07 AM
I was gonna say, there should be some award for Linds, so we can officially pass the torch to Sam

Hotel Lights should make a special appearance as well, where they play "Amelia Bright". Then we should get the locked up studio version of the Five's cut of it. BUT, only us. No one can share. That way we feel more special than we already are.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Martin on April 11, 2007, 07:00:40 AM
And Ben would need to play Rock This Suburbian Bitch.

Actually, with the number of special guests this is starting to sound more like a festival of Ben (or a Foldstival. No. That's shit).

Or Ben could follow in the Barenaked Ladies footsteps and organise a Ben Folds cruise for all of us.

Either way, it should definitely be called: "Rockin' The Suburbians"
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: whenlabratsgobad on April 11, 2007, 07:27:02 AM
If it's a Foldstival (Benstock), then Snuzz, Chuck Folds Five, Weird Al, and Shatner should be there.  If only to make appearances.

Far too much for one day, though.  Three days of Peace, Love, and Folds.

Or, alternately, Three Days of Sex, Drugs, and Ben-f*ckin'-Folds

Two things about this post:

1. Rufus was mentioned on the page before; tippex79 said he should turn up to do "Careless whisper".

2. LEET!!! Last year (or longer back even), Hannah got 1337 posts and the forum changed her post count to "LEET" and only I noticed before it changed back. Everybody told me I was crazy, but it really did. Thank you for proving me right. Now everybody owes me money. 8)

I also enjoy how dorky we all are right now.
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: Allison on April 11, 2007, 02:36:20 PM
We should go on a Folds-sight seeing tour. Start in the UK, because of course, if it wasn't for Underground taking off over there... And have our Ben on Andy's piano show.

Then fly into Winston-Salem. Visit the birth place. Chapel Hill, visit where WAEA was recorded, pick up Chuck and Snuzz and well all the NCers whilest there....

Then drive over to Nashville. Go to the studio, have a rockin' time with the Ben & Friends Extravaganza!

And then fly to Australia to Adeliade and then Perth to have a Ben with WASO event.


Then. Decide we all love each other too much (despite Alex's smell) and start our own colony/town called Effington, AUS.

End.



And whoops missed Rufus.

And leet indeed.

QUICK someone else get to 1337.

I'm feeling pretty proud of myself, because I just learnt how to play the theme from The Muppets on the piano. Aqualung did it last week and it was pretty amazing, but he didn't sing it, aside from the ending. If I did it live, I would have to sing it. In voice, too. With a drum solo for the parts sung by the old men (because I don't know the piano for that bit...). Freakin' awesome.

Gas is too expensive.


And I have my own show. So, I had a piano lesson instead.

You should all drive to NC; Snuzz is playing a co-headliner with Dan Bryk and artwork by ME! (at Dan's request... He e-mailed me yesterday, asking me to draw some stuff for them, which he's gonna put on T-shirts for them to wear, and already put on posters for the show... Yay)

I had been planning to go in the summer for ages and I have the money to, but I've decided NOT to go on holiday this summer and to wait for an opportunity later this year, because this summer is my last real chance to see some of my friends and we're gonna make a movie, motherf*ckas!

Okay, so I don't that much about computers/laptops, but I wanna buy a laptop. So I was looking on craigslist for a used one, since I can't afford a new one right now, and I came across this one:

http://eugene.craigslist.org/sys/310989039.html

Does anybody know what year this laptop might be, and if you think it's any good?

i'd guess it's an '05.  the features appear adequate enough.  what are you primarily planning on using it for?
Title: Re: Random ramblingsII...
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on April 14, 2007, 06:24:59 PM
Music and internet, mostly. And videos.

AAHAHAAHAHAHAHHA. That's great.

Last night's dream I was definately taking care of a child, but I can't figure out if it was mine or not.

And then Ben strolled by and refused to do the show I was apparently going to.

And then I woke up to my alarm clock (which is Learn to Live, so that's probably where Ben walking by came from).

Call me old fashioned, but even I prefer to call you Hannah. I dunno why... I guess there's something geeky about calling people by their messageboard names. I mean, I don't expect to be acknowledged as an ACTUAL qualified safety officer...

apparently I have never posted between 4-7 AM.  seems about right.

I've been having a ridiculous amount of dreams the past few nights, because when I have a sh*tload of stuff to do, my brain does not stop for sleep.  actually! in one of my dreams I was at this concert (with some people blahblah), and it was a Ben show.  and there were two openers.  I think the first was supposed to be Eef, but the second was Guster.  and it was weird because there was standing room in the front, but everyone up there standing was in perfect rows, with about a foot of space in front and back of them.  it was so confusing.

then this afternoon, I was thinking about my dreams, and I realized that the weird standing in rows was because of one of the threads here, where people were talking about what row they were in, but then I saw pictures and it was more of a standing crowd, not really rows, and I was confused.  and then I dreamed about actual rows.

THEBURBS, LOOK WHAT YOU DO TO ME.

Weird dreams...don't even go there.  I had a night of weird dreams just recently.  Can't remember what they were about, something about looking after someone else's kids when I had to be somewhere else or something like that, but woke up really stressed out about it.

On a slightly different note...am I correct in noticing that Ben has dropped Brick from his setlist so far this year??  Yay!  What a brave move!  Cast off those mental chains, Ben!  The Luckiest is missing too.  I've not seen a gig without those two (well, apart from BFF which obviously did not have The Luckiest).    Looks like Brick was last played during the Oz/Orchestra tour  last Aug/Sept and The Luckiest has been MIA since around November.  :o  I'm happy enough
