Ben Folds on Chatroulette

So I’ve been meaning to post this one….

I had the privilege of seeing Ben Folds in concert back in March, which was even more incredible that I had always imagined. I’ve been a fan ever since the first time I heard Brick on the radio and to get Ben Folds with just a piano for couple hours was awesome! Not only did he jam out on some crowd favorites but he explored current technology by breaking out a disguising hoodie and a laptop with video for several rounds of Chatroulette (visit at your own risk – its the latest online sketchy-social networking craze). He not only tried the sessions once, but twice – in his encore! It was the funniest thing I have ever experienced at a show. He broke out improvised numbers to try and get actual chatters to interact and even had some successes (thank goodness – one can only take so many dark screens and unexplained fleshy areas). Overall … I hope this is a staple in Ben Folds tour, because the crew I went with certainly enjoyed it!

Sorry for the haitus folks, I entered into “Wedding Season” and suddenly had a very full schedule with weddings to design for and attend! Such an exciting time/ age to be in and I’m really glad I’ve fallen into design wedding invitations and other such paper goods – I find it very fulfilling. Its design that actually matters to someone (more than just commercialism) – I love getting to be a part of such a significant point in a couples lives. I’ve also gotten the chance to photograph an engagement session and be the day of designer and coordinator for a wedding – pretty incredible. Along with that I’ve designed for birthdays and baby showers to boot! Keep an eye on http://www.thegirltyler.com, big changes and additions to come soon! Thanks for the readership I have right now, I’m glad there are folks that are interested in what I have to say!
