General Board / Ben Folds current label?
« on: April 01, 2012, 11:55:39 PM »
Ben's site still says Sony Music at the bottom. Anyone know what label the BFF record will come out on? Does Sony own any and all BFF material? and/or did he resign to Sony after Lonely Avenue came out on Nonesuch?

and now, what silliness is this? let me see, i'll bet W&EA in original non-reissue form, BF Live and University or something equally inane.

News / New fanclub: 1 step forward, 2 steps back

The prices are better but...

- what's with the 1st vs 2nd year stuff? I was a member years ago and didn't renew. What does that make me?
- US/Canada only in the checkout form, even for the online only membership? really? REALLY? what year is it, 1994? you put up an online fanclub site for US & Canada only? sigh.

yes, i know that you'll probably add the rest of the world a few weeks from now after we all complain but yawn, this has been done already by lots and lots of different artists. How hard can it be? Can't you just pay REM's people a few grand to set it up for you properly?

- busy pages, some take way too long to load
- buggy registration. got an email saying 'You have registered' while a page loaded saying 'Registration failed' (or similar).
- like the content of the studio pages and the photos but again, too busy, takes too long to load, etc. not worth the "page loading" effects
- spawns extra pages unnecessarily (let the user open new pages if they want, don't force it on them).
- but all in all, a bit less ugly than the Sony version. Hope to see it streamlined and improved...

Tour Board / BFF seatswap
« on: September 17, 2008, 06:36:40 PM »
I have 2 tickets in different places for the BFF show. My girlfriend and I would obviously prefer to sit together. We have 1 Right Balcony ticket and 1 Right Mezzanine ticket. If anyone else is in a similar situation and would like to trade 1 ticket so that we could be at least in the same section, and it helps you the same way, please PM me and we can arrange to swap before the show. Would perhaps involve us buying you a drink or 2 of your choice.

Perhaps the UK won't get the box after all.

Hey. Thought I'd give this a go.

Got the District Line back from Hammersmith on Tuesday night after the gig (GREAT wasn't it!?!?), and a couple got off at Westminster (circa 11.30pm) leaving behind the merchandise they'd bought that night from the venue.

If this was you and you can describe exactly what you'd bought then get in touch and pass on contact details, cos I'm, well, my sister's, the kind soul who now has them.

If anyone can suggest another way of trying to track this couple down, that'd be most welcome."

Tour Board / 05-05-31 Hammersmith, London *SPOILERS*
« on: May 31, 2005, 03:26:23 PM »
Well heavens to betsy, good gosh-o-mighty, etc. There's something about a sold out theatre singing "bitches can't hang in the streets" in unison which sent a shiver down my spine.

It just feels like Ben Folds has gotten a leetle beet more popular in the UK since the show with Divine Comedy.

Please post the setlist (don't forget both versions of Jesusland) and which trackers your recordings will be on cos I would like to have a copy of this one if at all possible.

And obligatory star spotting: Colin Firth, 2nd row balcony. Any others?

News / Fan Club overcharge campaign
« on: May 18, 2005, 10:37:58 PM »
I posted this on the .com forum in the 'Folds Fan Club' thread:

"That's a ridiculous amount to charge, and charging $10 more for outside the US is just greed. REM's fanclub is $10 in the US and $12 everywhere else. Admittedly, they don't have ID cards "with YOUR name" :). I think $15 US, $17 canada, $20 elsewhere would be a much more reasonable price and will probably appeal to more people."

Let's swamp all the boards with similar comments so we can get them to lower the price on it. Those prices are just ridiculous. I'm not helping anyone get a McMansion on a hill with a fan club membership.
