haha yeah sumthings gone a bit tits up there.  Andy, my upload with Tiscali is so very poor, something seemed to time out while sending the email today.  I'll get it sent tomorrow up the uni on a decent connection.

Yeah totally, there is definitely some that rely heavily on the other instruments.  Was just watchin Ben play the solo version of Gone, and it was such a different song, and i mean that in a negative way.

I see where your coming from, and yes it probably would be cooler to see it with band.  But in a lot of cases, as a biased pianist, generally thats what intrigues me about his style.  How one piano can strike with as much excitement as a full band.  Personally, Last Polka for me, I prefer solo, just because the power out of the piano rivals that of the full band, and no offence to Sam or Jared or anyone else he's played with, who I do f*ckin love btw, but I like to hear the subtle differences that are highlighted by a solo version of a song.
But like I said, its just an opinion of someone who is a piano player and influenced heavily by Ben.  Im sure there's bass players and drummers and melodica players who would feel the same about their instrument.

battle of who could care less

Is there not a decent chance of that appearing on the setlists now anyway? Seemed to be kind of standard when i saw him last year.  Get Tom and Mary busted out again, was great hearing that in Sheffield. Or Jackson Cannery. Julianne, Uncle Walter, Stevens Last Night in town....shit theres too many.

Would've expected it out by now personally.  Silverman was out pretty sharpish, was just a nightmare trying to get a copy in the uk for a while. WAEA book is now winging its way to complete my collection.

Been pretty quiet on the ben front. Got a best of cd coming out in japan or sumthin, for a committed fan I feel kind of lame that i cant come up with anythin.

Oh yeah and katy perry wants to work with him. (which i think is great despite not voicing my opinion on the katy perry hate page here....

Its on wokeup somewhere, but thought i'd post it here. Hope Andy wont slaughter me for posting it but if its not allowed just head over to wokeup...

I havent burnt it to disc yet, so vlc might be ok then, but its very weird. 

VLC plays everything, and WMP plays nothing. 
Have no idea why this dvd isnt following the most basic law of media files but whatever.

Mine plays the first 4 seconds of video and then the video cuts out completely. Dunno whats goin on with it.

scrap that, it doesnt play for me in vlc but does play in windows media player!!!!
