  1. 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?

  2. Hi! Most of the links in this forum are dead... I need help gathering all the album art for her singles and live albums. Upload them to https://www.reginasaurus.net/gallery/category/3-album-art/ I need some stixers to write album descriptions for far and soviet kitsch for album pages on the site. I am working on a spektography and am starting with all albums. The spektography album pages will look like this: https://www.reginasaurus.net/albums/begin-to-hope/ Help by adding lyrics on this forum: https://www.reginasaurus.net/forums/forum/12-lyrics/

    Tidak, terima kasih tidak terima kasih tidak terima kasih tidak terima kasih Saya tidak perlu membayar omong kosong ini Saya tidak mampu menarahi walatra seperti saya tidak mampu membeli limo Dan pada hari tertentu saya lebih suka naik limusin

    -translation-

    No thank you no thank you no thank you no thank you
    I don't have to pay for this shit
    I couldn't afford walatra berries like I couldn't afford a limo
    And on any given day I'd rather ride a limousine

    thanks google :-) 

    Are there any Indonesian speakers? How did google translate do?


  4. Hi to all! There have been some exiting updates at reginasaurus.net. 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 "Reginasaurus.net" 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!

  5. 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 reginasaurus.net, a Regina Spektor fansite where you can download regina's old recordings. Read my poetry on my personal website, jprince.net

    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 :D . 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! reginasaurus.net

    Thanks, Regis Memory


  6. Exciting news for the Brumstix community!

    Me and Brumstix user Universal Edibility are now running the new site. We haven't uploaded all the recordings that were on the old site but we will soon. 

    The new site allows you to upload recordings from your own collectio. You can also upload pictures, and connect with other users on the forum page. 

    Please make an account and upload your recordings! 

    Illegal sharing of her music will not be tolerated. Only upload live recordings for now. I have already uploaded most unreleased studio recordings, Any new recordings uploaded to the studio category must be verified by me before going public.

    Go make an account, explore, and contribute!!! http://reginasaurus.net


  7. Thanks! 

    Does anyone remember When she played Moon River on New York Rhadsophy with Lang Lang? 

    I want to buy the dvd so I can rip and have the hi-fi version of it. 

    You can stream the actual PBS recording (exact thing as buying DVD) here :

    http://www.pbs.org/video/lincoln-center-lang-langs-new-york-rhapsody/

    does anyone know how to maybe make a recording of the stream?? I’ve listened a couple times and cried my eyes out. She sings at around 58 mins on the recording :)

    The stream ends early 2018, and the quantities of the DVD's are low, they sell for I think 40 bucks but its definitely worth it.


  8. Hi! Thanks for sharing my site :) I'm sure it got shared to tons of people so thank you so much for that! 

    does anyone happen to have the 2009 WXRP Radio session?

    Maybe all these dead links & disappearing websites will teach us a lesson in how fleeting preservation is....

    I feel like I am posting too much.... please tell me if I need to chill out.

    Reginasaurus.net Update:

    All download links work on mobile to sync with your dropbox account. On a computer, the links download as a zip file automatically, no clicking. 

    The forums are now also accessible on mobile. 

    I uploaded the 2010 Bonaroo performance, which has not been previously shared. Its quite the setlist!  Also the WXRP Radio session but only "Left Hand Song" I am trying to find the whole recording (hence the question above)

  10. Hi! I’m not sure if this is the right place for this... but I have a suggestion for board.reginaspektor.com

    I browse the forums on my iPhone almost everyday, and I’m sure over half of users are on mobile...

    The design of the site is already styled similar to an app and I love this, but there is one Thing I don’t really like about the mobile experience.

    The Searchbar.

    By adding a simple meta tag you can remove the searchbar and make the site look as if it were a native application.

    the searchbar would still be present for every user, it only dissapears if you press the box with an arrow and click “Add to homescreen” 

    I’m not really sure if the site is still maintenanced often, but this would be a super easy task that would please alot of stixers...

    here is the guide from apple

    https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/AppleApplications/Reference/SafariWebContent/ConfiguringWebApplications/ConfiguringWebApplications.html

    Please look into it! All you would have to do is copy and paste!!
