That is correct. I'll be chatting with Mr Folds the evening of the 23rd at 6pm CST. We ALMOST chatted on the 7th, when he was asking the moderator to let me in, but the mod. wouldn't grant me broadcast privileges. Boo.

I'm sure I will. After nearly two decades of following the man's career and well over 60 concerts, I'm sure we'll find... something to discuss. Won't be the same without ya, David!

Check it... My local news rag has picked up my interview.
Quote
Local filmmaker (and self-described beard enthusiast) Justin Parlette -- one of the local horror 'heads behind this summer's zombie apocalypse web series, Dead Wait -- will chat with Ben Folds on the internet this week. They'll talk about Folds' new collaboration with Nick Hornby, Lonely Avenue (which is out on September 28 on Nonesuch Records).
 
Folds isn't exactly internet-shy: he's famously appeared on Chatroulette playing improvised songs about the people chatting with him, and he's a regular chatterbox on his Twitter, where he frequently posts pix of himself, his wife and his kids.

But back to the chat: it's happening here on September 23, at 6PM, until Folds and Parlette are "tired of each other."

Didn't see no jpar tonight.
Incidentally, I remember chatting to you and relaying your messages to Ben when you were trying to get on. Good times.

Ah, dumb me. 7PM EST is midnight UK time, so technically the last one was on the 23rd here.

No offence to jpar but I hope Ben pays as much attention to the rest of us tonight as he's done before. Last night was a bit of a disappointment with the technical problems and only one comment read out.

I thought it was really funny how he kept asking for me to chat and the moderator couldn't let me in.
