Just happen to be checking iTunes, and you can now buy the album.  I'm tempted to download a song or two despite preordering the album from Amazon, which probably won't arrive until next week......

Forgive me if this has already been posted, but this is the first time I've seen it.  Scroll down to #4 and read the interesting bit Nick Hornby wrote in his blog concerning Folds and the upcoming collaboration.

Album Board / Project Bio for "Ben Folds Presents: University A Capella!"
« on: February 28, 2009, 01:12:41 AM »
I don't know if that has been mentioned yet or not, but there's a new link on the PFoJ website to a biography of the Acappella project that was pretty interesting.  Here's the link (it's a pdf file)

My sister sent me this article which I thought was pretty entertaining... perhaps an idea for a Ben Folds future event?

The sound quality is pretty good on most of them... the volume got to be a problem overloading my camera for a couple of them at Congress, but they are still pretty good anyway.  Forgive the singing in the background in some of them... tried to hold the camera away from my face.

News / I HAVE TWO BFF TICKETS THAT I AM NOT SCALPING....
« on: September 17, 2008, 08:54:03 PM »
I know this is SUPER late notice and that I probably won't get ANYONE to buy them now, but I won the lottery for tickets (apparantly they come up with a few extra, and I got notified TODAY).  And I stupidly bought them because I had a friend at UNC that wanted to go, and turns out now she can't go after I've bought them, and I can't find ANYONE else to take them.  Unless I get rid of these, I'm going to be out $113 unnecessary dollars.  So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if anyone is interested and was planning on going, PLEEEEEASE e-mail anytime before the concert tomorrow (I've got a phone that will allow me to receive emails immediately.  2 tickets for $56 each, that's face value.

My email is stnelson@mac.com

Tour Board / What's this new tour going to be like?
« on: September 15, 2008, 03:46:18 PM »
We've all read Ben's posts and heard what he's had to say on the radio and in articles about the BFF show and his upcoming tour.  I've seen him mention several times that they've had actual "production meetings" and are looking to make this tour different... what exactly do you think that entails??  How is the WtN tour going to be different than the past??

Album Board / So I just jumped on the "Has Been" bandwagon...
« on: September 14, 2008, 06:11:53 PM »
For the longest time I refused to buy Has Been (I know, if I was a true BF fan I would have done this a long time ago)  but I couldn't get past the "well, he's just talking, not singing" mentality (much like rap music).

For some reason I finally convinced myself it would be worth it to own it, if just to hear Ben's production.

Now, I feel stupid and wished I would have had this album a long time ago.  It's incredible.  Who knew that William Shatner had it in him.  I love this album.  I love it.

Phenomenal job Mr. Shatner and Mr. Folds.  And I'm sorry I doubted you before.

I bought 4 but turns out I only need 2.  I've got the other two up for sale on ebay if anyone wants to check it out.

News / When are the rest of the Fall tour tickets....
« on: August 16, 2008, 09:26:10 PM »
going on sale?  I was under the impression that all the fall tour date tickets would go on sale 2 weeks ago when the album was available for preorder.  But Chicago still isn't up as far as I know, and that's the one I'm waiting for.  Anybody know anything?
