General Board / BENVIVOR V - SIGN UPS

Roll up, roll up...Ladies and Gentlemen...I'm proud to announce...

Benvivor V!

For those that haven't heard of Benvivor, it is a BF/F related competition, in the style of Survivor, Big Brother etc, that has been doing the rounds here at the 'Burbs for some time.  It is, as Andy so eloquently put it, the Biggest Baddest Ben Folds Trivia Game on the net!

The competition is simple, with a number of rounds of three questions each for contestants to answer.  Andy and I have had our cunning hats on, and we have come up with some intriguing little conundrums that will test your knowledge off all things Ben to the max!   

And, just for added spice, there will be the opportunity to dispose of one of your fellow contestants from the game each round, with those that fail to score 3 out of 3 being put up for eviction!

The winner will be rewarded with bragging rights beyond any other imaginable together with entry to a very select club of Benvivor champions.

So - do you think you know your Benfo?  Do you think you are hard enough?  Can you take the crown away from BVIV champion Don (aka jrkeyboard)?!  And more importantly, do you want to take part in the coolest thing to happen on the web since...well, since Benvivor IV??? 

Then please sign up.  You need to be a member of the boards to take part, but those guests that are lurking are very welcome to join!  The rules are below!

I am initially going to give you all 1 week from the date of this post to get your signups in before entries close and the games commence.

Any questions, please PM Andy or me.

Good luck!

J...

PS.  Please DO NOT post on this thread other than to sign up - use the BVV gossip thread on the General board, which you can find here:

http://www.thesuburbs.org.uk/Board/index.php?topic=3483.0


The Rules

General Rules

1. Each round has 3 questions that are posted on the board on a "Benvivor Questions" thread.

2. You have 48 hours from the time of posting to get your answers in to James via PRIVATE MESSAGE only. Email answers will be accepted in case of board failure or login trouble, but this is an exception and should only be used as a last resort.

3. If you post your answers on the board or anywhere else publicly accessible, you will be disqualified and that round will be declared void.  This also applies if you go fishing for answers on another board - only YOUR Benfo will be tested and accepted!

4. If you fail to submit your answers or get zero correct, you will be out.   I will only accept your first answers - you CANNOT re-submit answers.

Voting

5. If you don't get all the questions correct, but more than one, you are still in the game... but could get voted off! This works as follows:
EVERYONE is allowed to vote for the person on probation they want eliminated. They may vote for anyone at all, providing they got fewer than 3 for the last round (and are still in the game).

If a person scores three, they have immunity and cannot be voted off.

The person who gets the most votes is removed from the game, even if they would have potentially scored 3 in the round they were removed.

6. The answers to the questions, along with the result of who got what (who is out, who is up for vote, and who has immunity) will be posted with the following round.

7. There will be a specific thread for Benvivor-related gossip to keep it under control. Please please PLEASE do NOT post anything on the questions/answers thread.

AND

8. Andy and I will be judging the rounds and our decisions are final.  We reserve the right to change our minds if we feel a manifold injustice has been done, but other than that, you have to respect our authoritaaaah.  Anyway, who heard of a lawyer who isn't fair, just and independent...;o)

And remember, each round last for 48 hours from the time the questions are posted!

General Board / FAN CLUB: Latest news
« on: July 16, 2005, 04:26:23 AM »
One of the members of the Armchair (Sarah) emailed the fan club asking whether the packages have been sent out yet (she was qworried it may have got lost in the mail).  This was the reply:

YES, we are still preparing welcome packs for the first massive shipment
of mailings to the first wave of members.  We JUST got 30 boxes of
autographed stuff from Ben just today, and we're waiting a little longer for photos, and then we'll be starting the process of the mass mailing.  Ben has been busy on tour but he's really taking blocks of time to sign so many things for the fan club members, and his work is almost finished...

So THANK YOU for your patience and if you can wait a little longer, we
should be sending out the welcome package sometime later this month of
July to all the first wave of members.

Thanks for joining Ben Folds Fan Club Steve and sorry for this initial
delay as we get all the goods in...

Transcription / [Lyrics] - b*tches Ain't sh*t
« on: March 07, 2005, 07:01:51 AM »
PARENTAL ADVISORY - EXPLICIT CONTENT!!


b*tches ain't sh*t
b*tches ain't sh*t

b*tches ain't sh*t but hoes and tricks
Lick on these nuts and suck the dick
Just get the f*ck out after you're done
And I hops in my ride to make a quick run.

I used to know a b*tch named Eric Wright
We used to roll around and f*ck the hoes at night
Tighter than the motherf*cking gangsta beats
And we was balling on the motherf*cking Compton streets

Peep, that sh*t got deep and it was on
Number 1 song after number 1 song
Long as my motherf*cking pockets was fat
I didn't give a f*ck where the b*tch was at

But she was hanging with a white b*tch doing the sh*t she do
Sucking on his dick just to get a buck or two
And the ends that she got meant nothing
Now she's suing 'cause the sh*t she be doing ain't sh*t

(b*tches can't hang with the streets)
She found herself short
(Now she's taking me to court)
It's real conversation for your ass

I once had a b*tch named Mandy May
Used to be up in them guts like everyday
The pussy was the bomb
Had a n*gger on sprung
I was in love like a motherf*cker licking the protung

The homies used to tell me that she wasn't no good
But I'm the maniac in black, Mr. Snoop Eastwood
So I figure n*ggers wouldn't trip with mine
Guess what? Got gaffled by one time

I'm back in the motherf*cking county jail
6 months on my chest, now it's time to bail
I gets released on a hot sunny day
My n*gger D.O.C. and my homey Dr Dre
Scooped in a coupe, Snoop we got the news
Your girl was tricking while you was draped in the county blues
I ain't been out a second
And already I gotta do some motherf*cking chin checkin

Move up the block as we groove down the block
See my girl's house, Dre, pass the glock
Kick in the door and I look on the floor
It's my little cousin Daz and he's f*cking my hoe

I unc*cked my sh*t...I'm heart-broke but I'm still loc'ed

(Man, f*ck that b*tch!)

b*tches ain't sh*t but hoes and tricks
Lick on these nuts and suck the dick
Gets the f*ck out after you're done
And I hops in my ride to make a quick run.

I used to know a b*tch named Eric Wright
We used to roll around and f*ck the hoes at night
Tighter than a motherf*cking gangsta beats
And we was balling on the motherf*cking Compton streets

Peep, the sh*t got deep and it was on
Number 1 song after number 1 song
Long as my motherf*cking pockets was fat
I didn't give a f*ck where the b*tch was at

But she was hanging with a white b*tch doing the sh*t she do
Sucking on his dick just to get a buck or two
And the ends that she got meant nothing
Now she's suing 'cause the sh*t she be doing ain't sh*t

(b*tches can't hang with the streets)
She found herself short
(So now she's taking me to court)
That's some real conversation for your ass

General Board / Fooling April and Amos Lee - Debut Albums
« on: February 15, 2005, 01:16:36 AM »
Just thought I would draw your attention to two debut albums that have just been/are just about to be released.

The first - Fooling April - a few people here will have already heard of.  They released a four song samper quite a while ago which I fell in love with.  They are quite piano based and have a very 'fresh' sound - I'm not saying that to sound corny, but they sound very original to me!  

After touring a heap in the US, they have now released their first studio album.  Check it out at www.foolingapril.com/fafiles/store.htm and listen to some of the samples.

The second is a guy called Amos Lee.  I saw him supporting Norah Jones in London last year, and he was AMAZING.  A very soulful male singer/songwriter and after getting a copy of his EP at the gig (signed - woo!) both my girlfriend and I are hooked.  His debut album is released soon - check it/him out at http://amoslee.com/

Just in case anyone fancies some new music!  ;D

News / Ben on Triple J
« on: February 03, 2005, 09:20:31 AM »
Message from Andy, and I quote - "I am an idiot".

Note to all UK-ers tuning in to Triple J for Ben's appearance on Jay and the Doctor - despite Andy using all his fingers and toes, the show does not start until 7pm GMT - that's 6am Sydney time.

So, hold your horses or tune into the early morning Triple J show, for fun, frolics and, according to Windows Media Player at least, a good dose of alternative rock!

General Board / Landed Promo CD
« on: January 26, 2005, 11:14:03 AM »
Just got this email from Ebay:

Quote
The following listing:

4069663641 - Ben Folds - landed  cd single

was removed because the intellectual property rights owner notified eBay
that the listing potentially infringes its copyright, trademark or other
rights.  Due to this claim, and the fact that the feedback system is no
longer available, we strongly urge you not to complete this transaction.

You can get more information on eBay's cooperation with intellectual
property rights owners at:

 http://pages.ebay.com/help/confidence/programs-vero-ov.html

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this issue.

Regards,

Customer Support (Trust and Safety Department)
eBay Inc

This is just a little note for those, like me, that had looked at obtaining one of the promo CDs from Ebay or elsewhere.

Although I am not an expert in IP law, especially not American IP law, it would seem to me that promo copies of a single are not for onwards sale, and are intended for the recipient's use only.  I would, therefore, exercise caution before selling one of these CDs before the single has been released (my guess would be that, after the public release of the single, the record company don't mind the promo being sold).

This is all, of course, IMHO.  But a little heads up for you all...

J...

PS.  I don't think, however, it would be a breach of IP to BUY a promo, only to SELL it!!
