  7. Regina on Craig Ferguson?

    I hope you're on to something. She is out there. But being the devil's advocate, he may have just attended a taping of the show. Scheduled tonight: Alicia Silverstone and Salman Rushdie. Also Matt could be playing for anyone. Aaah forget it. I like your idea better...

    quote: Originally posted by Jasimo: I could be wrong, but I thought she mentioned it in an interview once. Auto tune *is* widely used to mask bad singing/singers, but some producers/artists also use it because it can do odd/artificial-sounding/funky (pick your adjective) things to a voice. For myself, I think it's a bane upon music. I believe it was used only at the end of Dance Anthem for what's been referred to sometimes as the "imogen" effect.

  11. Nicole Atkins! I’m not asking, I’m telling you...

    I'm just so curious why the change in personnel. I really liked "The Sea". Those guys were so good. Can you compare the two now that you have a couple of shows under your belt? Thanks so much for taking the time to do all this Jaime. I really do appreciate it...
  12. Regina Covering Hallelujah.

    New York's Hotel Chelsea recalls gritty era Some hardened New Yorkers yearn for the New York of the 1970s and '80s, when the Smiths and the Ramones played in underground bars, and crack ruled parts of the city. They complain that New York has lost its soul, its grit. And they might have a point. Crime is down, but rents are up, and Manhattan neighborhoods that used to be havens for artists and writers are being built up with glittering condo developments. The artists and musicians are still here, but many of the youngest are struggling and have been pushed to the fringes of Queens and Brooklyn. It can leave an intrepid visitor who has a desire for the authentic unsatisfied. The Hotel Chelsea, or the Chelsea Hotel -- it doesn't matter, says general manager David Elder -- can fulfill that desire. It's a rare holdover from the grittier New York of yore. The building is as grand as they come, with a prime location in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan and a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. It was originally built with 40 apartments, each replete with the architectural details one would expect to find in a building from the mid-19th century: wide hallways, crown molding, carved fireplaces and balconies. The building now has 240 rooms, with the hotel taking up about half of those and long-term residents taking up the other half. Hotel rooms and residences are interspersed, so the hallways, stairwell and elevators are a continuous mix of out-of-towners and old-school New Yorkers. The Waldorf this is not. Some of the rooms don't have private bathrooms. (These, oddly enough, tend to be the most popular and book up first.) The public spaces are a cross between an artsy, slightly grungy university residence hall and a buzzing neighborhood stoop. The people-watching can be fascinating, and if a guest is amenable, making friendly acquaintances is fairly easy. Residents and guests are prone to hanging out in the lobby with laptops or a book, while tourists toting cameras stop in steadily to take pictures. Crew members from an independent film being shot on location might be seen mingling on any of the hotel's floors with guests who have just arrived (bellboy with luggage in tow) and a resident taking her bichon frise out for its evening stroll. The rooms tend to be spacious and decorated in a style that combines the avant-garde with the historic. No two are alike, so be precise about your expectations and desired amenities when you book. The hotel staff and service are friendly and prompt but also relaxed. The building is regularly used for photo and film shoots and art events, and has been declared a source of inspiration for many artists, dozens of whom have left behind paintings as a sign of gratitude and a form of payment. Some litter Elder's wood-paneled office, while the rest hang at regularly spaced intervals throughout the 10-floor hotel stairwell. A laundry list of the most famous guests would impress even the most jaded traveler: Mark Twain, Arthur Miller, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Willem de Kooning and Jasper Johns. Cohen's song honoring Joplin's memory is called "Chelsea Hotel No. 2" and has since been covered by other contemporary artists such as Rufus Wainwright and Regina Spektor. (Cohen is scheduled to perform Thursday in the Chicago area at the Rosemont Theatre.) In Bob Dylan's "Sara," the songwriter refers to other songs he has written while in the hotel: "staying up for days at the Chelsea Hotel writin' 'Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands' for you." Perhaps most infamously, the hotel was the scene of the 1978 stabbing of Nancy Spungen, the girlfriend of the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious. (Vicious was charged in the killing but died of a drug overdose before the case could go to trial.) Some New Yorkers whisper that the Chelsea is haunted, but Elder doesn't believe in ghosts. If the spirit of New York's -- and America's -- cultural touchstones could haunt a building, however, this would be the place.

    quote: Originally posted by Be like the water, what is with the stereotypes? people are just people, you know? you can't judge something as personal as sexuality based on appearances. Don't make judgements based on musical tastes, clothes, hair, nails, anything like that. Until someone makes it plain to you honestly, you can't assume they're straight, or that they're gay... how can you think that listening to regina... nevermind. that post confuses me. I just about died when I read it, hence my sharing...what's funny is this person calls their description cliché have to question the sincerity of the OP...

    quote: Originally posted by Sgtcampsalot: That's one of my favorite caricatures of the Joker, even before TDK, and I think it'd break up the ubiquitousness of the costume. Wanna go back further? Cesar Romero as the Joker! Romero refused to shave his mustache for the role, and it can be seen beneath his white makeup in close-ups.
  16. Your First Post

    A good time to bump mine given the fact that we've had an influx of new folks... http://reginaspektor.infopop.c...771050611#6771050611 Apparently I lurked for 5 months....
  17. Sexuality

    quote: Your opinion? Ok, I need to know if this girl is as gay as I think she is. She goes to my college. Normally I would just ask someone if they’re gay but she’s REALLY hot and I don’t want to look stupid. Could someone with gaydar or some more experienced lesbian give me a clue. Here’s some cliché info that makes me think she’s gay: Clothes: Vests, tank tops, t shirts (oh and my favorite: a pair of black leather pants.) Grooming: No maintenance hair, no makeup, doesn’t pluck her eyebrows, short fingernails and no nail polish. Favorite music: Kimya Dawson, Bright Eyes, Regina Spektor. And she has a’s more like a dirt bike. Is all that just coincidence and the product of attending a liberal college? Plus in a group she’s really confident and when we talk one on one she seems nervous. But the last time I saw her I was kind of upset and she actually HUGGED me. I almost died. I feel like we’ve been flirting for nearly two months and she’s driving me insane. I’ll probably have to make the first move because I’m very femme and people generally don’t realize that I’m a lesbian until I tell them. So even if she were interested she might not know that I’m interested back. I’ll see her this Saturday. Should I ask her out?

  22. reg in the news

    quote: Right now, I am so hot on Regina Spektor! I listen to her more than anything, and I sing her in my kitchen more than anything [else]. What I found interesting is this professors other interests....seems that people that like reg also seem to like some of the same other things. She goes on: quote: Well, "Amélie" is my favorite movie of all time, and I do love that soundtrack, and I do listen to it. But, that's really exceptional. In some movies, part of the purpose of the music in the movie is to sell the soundtrack. I'm thinking of "Garden State"! I like that soundtrack a lot, but that's different from other movies.
