    Was cleaning out some old hard drives and found some great pictures and videos. Way way back when Ben opened for Dashboard Confessional. The second pic I always get a laugh from with Ben in-line to his own merch. Return to Seattle and was able to film the whole show. I still have the mini DV tape someplace. Another Seattle show. Opening for Pete Yorn Always great seeing you perform brother! Shocked it has been 16 years!

    I think Elvis Presley and Creedence Clearwater Revival started it all. My sister and I would put their records on after supper and put on a show for our parents. I was around 4-5 years old. Later, I was mesmerized by all things Prince and the Revolution, Michael Jackson. As time went on, I was drawn to everything from rap to folk to jazz. Nowadays I still have eclectic tastes. On my playlist right now is BK, Trevor Hall, Joni Mitchell, Will Evans, Madonna, BNL, Concrete Blonde, Wyclef Jean, Radical Face, The Doors, 3eb, ....

    Hey yall, was at the show last night in Dallas and man it rocked. Opening act modern love child was really good and played for about half a hour and ben played for about a hour and half. played an awesome mix of old and new. I want to say maybe 5 or 6 new songs? Also I believe the guy in modern love child wrote some of them with ben? 3 or 4 of them are definite tunes. It was an awesome vibe in the show everyone singing along to the songs and the band with ben rocks aswell. Also the new merch they have the shows is awesome. The hoodies are nice but I picked up a few of the t-shirts and pins. Get that stuff on the online store Ben!

    Love it! Very crunchy production. Reminds me a bit of Stephen Malkmus which is no faint praise.

    As posted by Ben on Instagram... Super stoked. Based on the previews I've heard, I'm sure this song will be a banger.

    I just heard it on Spotify. What do you all think? I think it is solid. I especially love the drum fill at 2:37.

    Radish has had an official Instagram page since at least November, so it seems very likely that something is coming soon...

    I'm more a card game person. I've made up my own where you construct as many cards against each other as you can till they fall down. Start with three in a sorta triangle and then build from there till gravity attacks. Super fun, time consuming if you're clumsy. You can also make roofs/ceilings and do second stories if you're nimble. Below is a whole Uno deck:

    I'm currently listening to Weezer's cover of Africa by Toto. Kinda funny, they did this after a 14 year old fan started a persistent campaign for it on Twitter.

    I'm super happy that I was finally recently able to get a copy of Ben Kweller's self titled album on vinyl. With the RSD release of Sha Sha hopefully I can finish out my collection... Anyone else have a BK vinyl collection they are excited about?

    I got a guitar a few years ago, an acoustic-electric, not very musically gifted but I have some fun with it. I can play the intro to Sundress.. uhh.. the middle of Full Circle with the woo woo woo.. and uhmm.. Oh My Way.. real simple chords in that one, great for beginners. The songbook in Go Fly A Kite vinyl was awesome.. please do another songbook for the next record.. heck do one of all the 'classics'!!

    I feel pretty lonely saying Changing Horses is my favorite. Sha Sha was life-changing when I first heard it. It came to me about the same time as Neutral Milk Hotel, Weezer, Ben Folds and Sufjan Stevens... It opened up a world outside of the top 40 radio. The S/T brought me back to those feelings. And my girlfriend at the time was really into On My Way (joyous High School memories!). But Changing Horses was absolutely amazing. I remember sitting in a car with friends and reading the liner notes. Something about Ben growing up in Texas (?) and being raised on country music. You can't escape your roots sometimes. Yadda yadda. I'm from Arkansas, so I can relate. My grandma took me to school every morning from 3rd to 7th grade and we'd listen to Merle, George, Conway and all the other classic "real country." Hearing Changing Horses was a revelation though. It was a blend of that "indie" music that I had come to listen to, with what I grew up on. It was a statement to me that I didn't have to be ashamed of the country music I grew up on. Not to mention the fact that it was REALLY great. Time for me to pull out CH and give it another spin! It's been too long.
