  1. Regina is everywhere

    I was watching the Golden Globes (I think?) and Ryan Seacrest said something along the lines of "My dear acquaintance, a happy New Year, brother." I don't know if he was referring to the song, but how often do people actually say that.
  2. Wee Rants

    I was on the way to lunch today to meet with a bunch of friends. I was going through a green light, didn't hear or see the cop car running the light until too late, and hit him. FUUUCK!
  3. photos of ourselves !

    I'm so jealous of you all who had snow! It snowed here on Friday, then rained, so it all was washed away. At least it was pretty.
  4. Interviews & Appearances 2010

    Here is a quick interview from NY Magazine. http://news.google.com/news/ur...on_her_new_conc.html
  5. ingrid michaelson is the shit....

    This made me laugh. Happy Holidays!
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    Dog Days are Over - Florence + the Machine I can't stop listening to this song! And the video is killer, as well.
  7. What are you listening to right now?

    My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year) - Regina. Story: I shared with my roommate that htis is one of my favorite holiday songs, and the irony that of all the songs out there for Christmas/New Years, my favorite is by a Jew. SO she renamed Regina "Rejewna." Politically correct, I think not. Funny, I think so. It is better my old roommate, who calls her to this day, "Regina" like "vagina"

  9. school = :(

    quote: I'm so excited for next semester that I can't even take this semester seriously anymore. This is true for me, too. I don't see how I can do any more archaeology papers/reports. I feel like I'm repeating myself and my motivation is completely gone. I played video games for 2 days instead of doing any studying. Exams will be...interesting.
  10. Announcement about DVD :)

    quote: Please be aware that your items may have shipped in separate boxes and could possibly arrive on separate days. Posters and lithographs will generally ship separately from your other items in their own container. I was very confused at first when the front desk of my building said there were two packages. Then I saw the size of the tube, and was surprised at how small the lithograph was compared to the gigantic tube.
  11. post your favorite photos of regina

    That would make sense, I haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

    Where it that one from?^
  13. Regina is everywhere

    I woke up this morning and came out to the TV room and boom, there was a commercial for Estee Lauder that featured a Regina song (I think it was Fidelity, but I wasn't sure in my morning haze).
  14. post your favorite photos of regina

    I found this one in a photography collection on National Geographic. It was taken by Ben Folds: "Regina Spektor is one fantastic musician, singer, artist. I'm very lucky to have been able to collaborate with her on my last album. She was also hobbling from an ankle injury and my producer worked her for a good 8 hours that day. She sang in this sterile room over and over and kept bringing something special despite the repetition and lack of ambience. I grabbed my Widelux to shoot that one because it picks up such a wide angle which would get the clinical surroundings while keeping her prominent."
  15. Announcement about DVD :)

    I kind of hope she doesn't, because perfect pitch can be a curse. If someone is whistling a song and they have the interval right but not the key, it is incredibly irritating. The only time it's useful is for tuning stringed instruments. It's like having a really good understanding of grammar and hearing every single misuse of the language.
  16. Announcement about DVD :)

    I'm so anxious because I'm out of town until next Monday, so I won't get to see the DVD/CD until then! It's gonna kill me!
  17. Lets have a look...

    This thread is so intriguing. Here's my most recent:
  18. Regina's Updates

    It's really funny that she referenced this! My dad is very old, and he loves this movie, and loves to try and sing this song if he thinks it is remotely relevant to a conversation. It makes me miss him a lot and makes me very happy I go home for thanksgiving on Friday!
  19. reg in the news

    Here's an interview from Prefix Magazine. She talks about making the Live in London record.
  20. Regina on Jimmy Fallon Nov.23

    i hope so. She already played Machine, so it would be a different mood of a song.
  21. Regina's Updates

    Important bulletin if you are going to one of these shows, but also, SHE'S gonna be on Jimmy Fallon!!
  22. Announcement about DVD :)

    I'd have to agree with you, Appt. The Dance Anthem clip is just wierd, and I"m not sure I like it. And it surprises me because I really like Adria's work, like the Us video and Ingrid Michaelson's new video. Then again, I really don't care for the video for Ode to Divorce, which seems similar to the Dance Anthem clip.
  23. December

    I'm just curious, I read that Warner Records is releasing another holiday album, and that Regina is contributing this song. Is there just the demo version, or is there an official version floating around somewhere?
  24. Jenny's got a new song

    That story is really good to hear. I'm headed to my first Jenny Show next Tuesday, and I'm a bit nervous about the venue (never having been there before). I hope it is just like your experience!
  25. Announcement about DVD :)

    I'm so excited for the whole thing to come out! In this little clip, I love the little eyebrow move right around 1:12.
