A nice interview with Ben:

Q&A: Ben Folds On The Ben Folds Five Reunion And Taking A John Lennon-Like Approach To Life

Some good quotes:

Does Ben Folds sit down while he pees?

f*ck no, man! I hang from the ceiling with a massive splash guard.

Getting the guys back together, you know, it's actually a pay cut for me. But I'm into it because this is inspiring.
This surprised me.  Given how quickly the reunion show sold out and how good the new record is (in my opinion), I thought BFF reuniting would be a cash cow (relatively speaking).

Quote
I'd played solo gigs before [BFF got together], so even though, I don't know, I had 100 fans, that was our fanbase. So we put my name in it, but I don't think we wanted to do it too earnestly.
Never knew this.
I know it's Pit.
