  2. Survival Guide to Soviet Kitsch

    I've been looking for weeks for a PDF of the Survival Guide to Soviet Kitsch zine that Regina put out in 2004. It was just on her website before but it seems to have vanished from the internet. Does anyone have a copy that they could email to me? So bummed I don't have a copy anywhere!

  4. Good morning, fellow Regina Spektor fans! I was excited to drive down to New York tomorrow (from Boston) but I have to work, so won't be able to make it. I'm totally bummed. :-/ Anyway, I have two GA tickets for "A Very Special Evening with Regina Spektor Solo" on August 7th at Brooklyn Steel, in Brooklyn NY available on the cheap for fellow big fans. Just contact me / private message and we can work out the details. -Paul
  5. Very Funny...

    ...making my daughter cry on hearing The Visit. Ditto a grown man. We saw you at Purchase several years ago and waited for you afterwards with your proud parents. You didn't come out, but we love(d) you nevertheless.
  6. Laughing With!

    First, I'd like to say that I'm a big fan of Regina. I really love her voice and her unconventional songwriting. Second, I even like the song "Laughing With," despite being an atheist. Some people in this thread have said that the song is not really about atheists. Maybe it isn't. But in my experience, most people who hear the song do think that it's a variation on the old "no atheists in foxholes" argument. So regardless of whatever subtle twist of meaning or clever interpretation some people might attribute to the song, the fact that most people take it to mean "no atheists in foxholes" must be addressed. So, as an atheist, here's my two cents: No one laughs at God in a hospital. No one laughs at God in a war. No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor. No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests. No one's laughing at God when it's gotten real late and their kid's not back from the party yet. No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake. No one's laughing at God when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else and they hope that they're mistaken. No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door and they say we got some bad news, sir. No one's laughing at God when there's a famine or fire or flood. No one's laughing at God when they've lost all they've got and they don't know what for. No one laughs at God on the day they realize hat the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes. No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes. Well, no one is laughing at all, in those situations! If the cops knock on my door and say "we got some bad news, sir," I'm not laughing at anything at that moment! Would I laugh at a God-themed joke when my plane is going down? Probably not. Would I laugh at any joke when my plane is going down? Probably not. So the point is moot. It's completely illogical to imply that just because I'm not laughing at "God" during a crisis moment it means that I believe in God. And for the record, there are atheists in foxholes. There are several clubs/organizations of atheist veterans and atheist active-duty military personnel. You can look them up.

  11. Russian fairy tale read by Regina

    Probably not. Regina's version is a bit scary fairy tale about a human-like creature dependent on water. A few minutes of googling showed that water-related creatures is quite a common topic and it's hard to find the source.
  12. Russian fairy tale read by Regina

    Does it have anything to do with this???
  13. Russian fairy tale read by Regina

  16. Russian fairy tale read by Regina

    I just wrote you about this on the other topic... lol I have a “Spoken Poetry” download on reginasaurus. If you click “submit new version” you can add the file there.
  17. Thanks! I’ll keep that in mind when I add more lyrics... I don’t really like how the chorus is divided now. I’ll fix it eventually. It really means alot to me that someone likes my site Thanks for adding those lyrics on Songs btw! If you or anyone else has suggestions please do tell me... I found this recording of Regina talking in Russian. It’s not an interview... I’m not really sure what it is. Does anyone have any info on it? - Jacob Prince /
  18. Hi all! I have a recording of the fairy tale "Водяная женщина" ("Water Woman", something like that). It's 8 minutes and it's in russian. Are you aware of it? Do you need mp3 version?
  19. Hi! The album page looks very cool! It's great to have everything at once. Regarding lyrics: recently I've noticed lyrics on the official website. Just straight text, no division into verse, chorus. But it's a primary source comparing to popular lyrics websites which mess up from time to time. P.S. keep on developing your website! It already offers so many features and contains different kind of well-structured content. What it really lacks is the amount of users as passionate as you. Hope it changes in future!
  20. Hi! Most of the links in this forum are dead... I need help gathering all the album art for her singles and live albums.

  25. Logo

    Hi to all! There have been some exiting updates at I am working on a spektography type page. It will list every known song with download links to available recordings. There will also be lyrics and other information. You can help by adding lyrics. You'll see a new navigation link that will lead you to the lyric area. I am asking all Brumstix users to help create a logo for the site. I am thankful for anything you can create. It needs to have the title "" with the subtitle "Regina Spektor Database". It needs to contrast a lavender background. If you haven't seen the site yet go check it out! there are many recordings both new & old. Thanks! -Regis Memory /
  26. I'll remember this for life

    Hi! I'm glad there are new members on Brumstix, this place has been a little lonely lately. I've never formally introduced myself.. so here it goes. My name is Jacob Prince, I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and I'm probably the youngest Brumstix member there is. I am 15 years old. (pause for effect) I am a cellist and want to study the cello professionally. I am currently homeschooled & practice around 3-4 hours a day. I also code websites, compose music, and write poetry. I have listened to Regina for six years, ever since cheap seats was released, and I have been to one of her concerts. Brumstix users know me for creating, a Regina Spektor fansite where you can download regina's old recordings. Read my poetry on my personal website, I first found Regina when my nine-year-old-self was curious about the notorious iPod advertisement, which featured the Cheap Seats album art. The first song I heard was Don't Leave Me. After listening to Cheap Seats for a while, I progressed to Live in London. I learned to appreciate Regina's artistry and talent in that album. Next I listened to 11:11 then Begin to Hope, and eventually far. I didn't hear Songs until Remember us to Life was released. Since I discovered Regina I have listened to her for countless hours, admired her, and built my collection of her unreleased songs. I even have a Regina shrine in my room. I visited the Sidewalk Cafe last summer, and got a little postcard with a drawing of the cafe. I dream of Regina signing it. When I got my picture taken in front of the building the employees got a little freaked out. I've never once cried at Samson, neither do I think the song is emotional. I have cried at Sellers of Flowers, her cover of Moon River, and Dead of Night (From the beauty musical). I think Somedays, Braille, and obsolete are the most emotional songs. I never could have a favourite song or album, but there are moments in her music that I truly admire and that amaze me. One moment is in Daniel Cowman when she sings, "And he start remembering And remembering And remembering Remembering Remembering..." And when she refers to Shakesphere's the temptest in the same song "A man destined to drown can never burn A man destined to drown can never burn A man destined to drown can never ever burn" Another moment I admire, the same moment I knew I was absolutely obsessed with her, is the opening of better. I heard her play the song live on Saint Patricks day 2017. In the stage fog, she opened the concert with those first few chords of better. It was the most amazing feeling in the world. I never had listened to better much; I felt the song was over-produced, but I fell in love with it after the experience. Another moment that I love is the magestical sound of 20 Years of Snow, and the glissening guitar in Another Town. I also love the cello solo in Sellers of Flowers and orchestration in the song. I also love the marimba at the beginning of Don't Leave Me, but only because regina plays the marimba on the track. I imagine her being so cute playing it . The image of her lauging as she hits the wooden keys will never leave my brain. Recently I have been sad over Regina. It may be years before she releases any new music, and even longer before she tours again. She is taking time to be a great mother to her son, who may possibly be the greatest musician of our time. I am also sad for Regina. Her most popular songs like Fidelity & You've Got Time, don't feature her playing piano. It just shows how crappy mainstream music is. Even if those songs rock, I'd much rather hear the authenticity and talent of Regina soaring through her amazing piano ballads. I think I've somewhat introduced myself. I love you all, I only want the best for the community. I hope my website preserves Regina's music for years to come. I also hope we can find old missing recordings through contributions to the site. Already we have uncovered & shared the missing 2009 White Session. Recently user cmarez93 upoaded Regina's Amazon Music session, which was previously no where to be found. If you have any recordings that are not already on the site, please upload them! They may be missing! I had the 2009 White session sitting around on my computer, little did I know it was missing. Please check out the site! make an account! contribute to the community! Thanks, Regis Memory
  27. I'll remember this for life

    Welcome on board! I discovered Regina 1.5 years ago and I also obsessed! I've also been on her concert just once (it was a reason to travel abroad for the first time) and I'm looking forward to her shows in Europe ever since. And I can also say that Regina brought my perception of music to the next level. All the different moods her songs have, all the things she does with piano, all the unusual vocal techniques she includes, all the stories, problems and situations she puts in her lyrics - everything makes her and her music so special. And she is even more special for me because I speak russian (by the way we made a video with birthday wishes for her latest birthday in russian, she liked it, I'm so happy we could bring some love back to her). I agree, Regina deserves everything, including a horde of active fans in this forum
