(that's me singing along to one of his songs)
I'm pretty psyched. Normally, I don't post much about my personal life here - that's why I have my semi-private emoblog at livejournal, of course. :) Tonight, however, I get to go see Ben Folds.
:fingers crossed he plays songs from biography:
Ben Folds has always been one of those artists I had plenty of respect for, but it took me years to become a fan. I saw him live a several years ago for the first time, and that turned me into a pretty good fan right then and there. Still, it wasn't until my divorce abour a year later that his music really started to have an emotional impact on me. Specifically, there was an album called "The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner" from his days with Ben Folds Five which really nailed my emotional buttons directly. There are parts of the album which seem to express that feeling of "it all ends anyway, and everything is futile, and I regret so much" in such clarity that I was floored.
Anyway, off to the show tonight!
