Since Ben hardly ever comes down south, and most of my extended family lives in VA, I had to convince my parents to plan a family trip to VA around my birthday (and around the time when Ben was playing in Vienna)...since I had already bought the tickets, they had to.  It was about a 10 hour drive total from Fayetteville, GA to Vienna, VA.

May as well...

1. What was the first BF/F song you ever heard?
          The Last Polka on the BBC coverage of Glastonbury, must've been 1998. I didn't like it at the time.
2. In what order did you obtain the BF/F CDs you own?
          I'll just do the albums and EPs, I can't remember what order I collected singles, soundtracks and such.
  • Whatever and Ever Amen
  • Ben Folds Five
  • Rockin' the Suburbs
  • Ben Folds Live
  • The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner
  • Naked Baby Photos
  • Speed Graphic / Sunny 16 / Super D / The Bens EP (all at once)
  • Songs for Silverman
  • Songs for Silverman (special edition - damn you bonus DVD!)
  • SuperSunnySpeedGraphic
3. When was the first time you saw BF/F live?
          I saw Ben Folds at the Hammersmith Apollo in 2005.
4. How many times have you seen BF/F live?
          Twice - wonderful both times.
5. Most recent show?
          Hammersmith Apollo (again) 2007
6. Other bands or musicians you love
          Don't get me started! There's...
          Cardiacs, John Coltrane, Acoustic Ladyland, They Might Be Giants, Mclusky, Shellac, Shudder To Think... I could go on forever, but I'll leave it.
7. Do you have a Ben related website?
          Can't say I do, no. I used to make websites all the time when I was younger, but now I just run one for my own music and leave it at that.
8. Favorite member of the five including Ben?
          My favourite member is the metaphorical fourth member that was the chemistry between Ben, Robert and Darren.
9. Favorite member of Ben's touring band excluding Ben?
          Well that's just picking a favourite between two people then isn't it? And that's not very nice.
10. Have you ever met Ben/had something signed by Ben? How many times?
          I've got a signed photo that came with the fan club membership. Maybe if I renewed that I'd get more stuff, who knows.
11. Did you contribute to Crystal's pressie to Ben?
          Nope, now I feel guilty. What was the present?
12. Where did you grow up? Where do you live?
          Same answer for both questions there - a tedious little village in Oxfordshire called Grove.
13. What do you do? (student, profession)
          I'm a musician (which is a fancy word for unemployed).
14. Farthest you've ever travelled to see BF/F?
          From Oxfordshire to the Hammersmith Apollo...
15. How long have you been a BF/F fan?
          I had Whatever and Ever Amen for a long time before I "got" it and really became a fan. I'd guess I've been into BF/F (best friends divided by forever?) since 2004.
16. Is Ben or BFF your favorite musician/band, or one of many?
          One of many (see above list, BFF would be slotted neatly in there somewhere).
17. Five of your favorite BF/F songs
          Another tough and possibly unfair question here... I'll do five BFF and five solo songs, because it's easier. I'm still sure I'm missing something, but never mind...
  • The Last Polka
  • Missing the War
  • Smoke
  • Emaline
  • Narcolepsy

  • Zak and Sara
  • Fred Jones pt. 2
  • Bastard
  • There's Always Someone Cooler Than You
  • Give Judy My Notice (EP version)
18. Males: You want to be Ben, true or false.
  Females: You want to be Frally, true or false.

          False. I would love to have his talent for songwriting and piano playing, but if I was Ben then I wouldn't be me.
19. Your favorite B/FF song at this very moment. ONLY ONE. We all know it could change at any second.
          Missing the War.
20. Working on a theory here. Did/do your high school activities include marching band or cheerleading? Any others you care to mention?
          No. I went to a school in a town in Oxfordshire, we had no marching band or cheerleading squad.
21. What did you/are you/will you study in college?
          I never went to University, but I did Music, History and Media Studies (because it was easy and my sh*tty school had sucked all the energy out of me by that point) for A Levels.
22. Single? Attached? Married? Kids?
          I've been single for years.
23. If you could have dinner with a character from a BF/F song, who would it be?
          Emaline, she intrigues me.
24. Why did you choose your screen name? If it's your real name, why did you prefer to use it?
          It's just my name. In my younger days (here we go again) I'd sign up for message boards with some "cool" name related to whatever I was into at the time, but it always became embarrassing to be known by that name when it actually sounds really awful when you say it aloud.
25. Too many questions in this list or not enough?
          It was diverting enough, but I don't like picking favourite band members, it's not fair on them even if they'll never read it.
          Tippex79 makes a good point, favourite BF/F cover version is a good question. I'd say "Songs of Love", I knew the tune from Father Ted but didn't know the actual song until Ben did it, amazing how beautiful a sitcom theme tune can be!
