I Trust It Like the Ground

The Ben Folds ExperienceCruising ain't for the blue hairs anymore! Taking a cue from the Barenaked Ladies and Guster, Ben Folds has announced The Ben Folds Experience.

Ben Folds Experience heads out on the Carnival Imagination from the Port of Miami on February 21, 2008, stops in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and returns on February 25, 2008. Says Ben, "I wanted to get a lot of talented musical artists together in one holiday moment of glory with possibly a few comedians and have some kind of magical experience. The idea of painting a large bus psychedelic purple, not taking baths for a week and driving around the country jamming out on one chord about the war got shot down quickly, so I decided to take a cruise.”
Let's see, February in Iowa or hanging out with Ben Folds in Jamaica ... that's a tough choice.
You will dig the intimate setting onboard the Carnival Imagination as you travel with like-minded fans for this free-wheeling experience at sea. Catch Ben and others in nightclub-like settings while enjoying a first-class cruise including a full-service spa, internet café, coffee bar, state-of-the-art gym facilities, fine dining, free 24-hour room service, a casino and more.
"Like-minded" and free-wheeling?" Isn't that code for nudist?

Also, don't forget Folds is opening for Jessica Simpson's more talented half wtf-ever June 18 in Des Moines at the Wells Fargo Arena.
