sweetheart of the song tra bong I saw him last night, stood in the front right up against the stage.
After the encore I shouted "BEN I'M FROM CHARLOTTE TOO" and he smiled and waved and rolled his half-full water bottle under his piano, across the stage to my waiting hands.

It is now on my desk for good luck.

But not after my friends and I drank a little first.

Playing at being an obsessive stalker is fun.

sweetheart of the song tra bong He also added a verse to "Song for the Dumped" consisting entirely of the words "You fucking whore" over and over 021021

silentbob wow, that makes the song that much better. that particular song, and "Kate" really get old to me. im glad you got to see him so close. i can only wish the same for myself. im waiting for my birthday and christmas cuz i WANT that fucking unedited DVD. and it will be mine. i met a girl named betsy last night watching it. i heard the opening notes to "philosophy" and i knew. i ran back to her room and said, "Hi, im bobby, let me watch this a second" basically.

why did you keep his water? did he get dehydrated?

sweetheart of the song tra bong I want the DVD too. Christmas seems too far away

To make myself feel less guilty: he had already had one 33.8 fl oz bottle of water, and he was halfway through with this one, and he had finished his performance anyway, and there was probably more water for him backstage. So I kept the bottle.

Although it would be kinda cool to say "Yo, I caused Ben Folds to get dehydrated"

silentbob that live album is so fucking good
i want him to put out a new cd like right fucking now

no reason he is awesome live. he doesn't even sit when he plays the piano, just sort of perches over it. as if ready to attack. which is definitely what he does...

and he repeated "you fucking whore" over and over again when he played Song for the Dumped for us too.
and i laughed when he talked about the reasoning behind (Every Night Is) Steven's Last Night in Town.

and i was in awe when he got the entire audience to harmonize and ended the show standing up on the piano with his arms raised like a longtime awaited and worshipped conductor.

i just wish he had played a duet with tori_amos. oh well, maybe someday.

silentbob He put out a new ep.
he will put out 2 more ep's
after that he will release all three of them on one cd for people who don't like ep's.
Or maybe he's just recording a new album and is releasing it four or five songs at a time in ep format, and then the cd will be relased with all the songs.

yeah. whatever.

oldephebe this is wierd i'm actually listening to the benfoldsfive cd as i type this

he is a percussive, passionate piano player - kind of like a pop version of this aged russian whose name should not be esaping me right now - anyway for decades he was the standard bearer - he could play listz and beethoven and even some pagganinni transcriptions effortlessly - ah ben as everyone knows can be achingly sensitive and nuanced -subtle and delicate with all the shading and dynamics and ah stuff - yeah benfolds is an incredible musician as well as composer and singer - brilliant = i especially love the harmonies of his background vocal arrangements -

ah the whimsy and the whirlwind that is ben folds

oldephebe Horowitz! I think that's his name - immigrated her I think in the late twenties and played for decades before going into exil - gave a recital well into his eighties and his hands still possesed the thunder and power - devouring the ivory like a thouroughbred
(sp) devouring the ground - thundering across the plains -

yep

later,
