Eating takeout by myself

Didn't realize it was about Elliott Smith either. It's okay, I guess.

Wow gramcham...l o l , I'm sure we all knew that just from listening to the words. Way to quote verbatim

Yea, Ben Folds really liked him, and when he passed on he wrote this song about how Elliot had helped him though some hard times, but he had only met him once and played basketball with him. So he didn't really know anything about him except his amazing music and that he played dirty basketball.

I did not realize this song was about Elliot Smith. That puts a new perspective on it for me.
