About Armchair
English (USA)

The Magical Armchair is an e-mail list for discussion of Ben Folds and his musical projects. In service since 1995, the Magical Armchair is the oldest Folds fan forum. List members are encouraged to post items of interest to other subscribers, including concert experiences, music reviews, questions and answers or anything else related to Ben Folds and his music.
In addition to listmember posts, we'll also post news about Ben Folds and announcements of new items on the Magical Armchair website ( If you wish to receive only these news items, you can subscribe to the Armchair-News list.
Please use appropriate discretion when posting. Posts or threads that are deemed inappropriate or offensive by the moderator may be removed and the listmember banned from posting. Because this list is intended for discussion, any attachments in messages posted by listmembers will be stripped.
Of course, posting to this list is not a way to contact Ben.
