  1. applying to college sucks!

    Oh it went lovely. It was at the diner, so it was a very low-stress environment, and the dude had a giant stain on the front of his shirt which completely put me at ease, so we just chatted for a while and it was nice. I hope they're all that nice...
  2. applying to college sucks!

    resurrecting my own thread: i have my first interview tomorrow and it's for my early action school and i'm very nervous. suggestions? also i am retroactively wishing ThisIsHowItWorks good luck with the apps!
  3. what is stikcy?

    I think it's probably nothing so mythical like all of you guys are talking about. maybe somebody was just using it as a test to see how the stickies work. so he or she (whoever started this thing - reg? idk) put this up, maybe with an accidental typo, to see if it would actually stick (that's why there's a question mark). and when it did, then they did the "this is a place..." one. sounds reasonable, no?
  4. "Oh, I love Regina Spektor!"

    quote: Originally posted by Brady: Okay guys get this!!!! I only know one person in person in my age group who likes reg and that's my best friend, about a month ago I found another person in my grade who is a big reg fan. There's this girl in my school named Taryn.....this girl is so freaking pretty its not even funny I mean she is actually not that far from being as pretty as reg. But definately not though.... anyway, luckily I have three periods and lunch with this taryn and also a locker next 2 her! So the first time I wore a regina shirt to school she comes into 2nd hour looks at my shirt and says, " I love regina spektor, she's like my favorite singer!" She also asked me where I got it and I told her....... And then in 3rd hour she shows me what she is listening to on her ipod and its Music Box demo! And then samson too! Lol now I am like even more attracted to her because she likes reg....its awesome that the only two people I know in my grade that like reg r my best friend and the sexiest chick in the school! DO WORK SON!

  6. Regina on SNL!! - Oct 10 2009

    quote: Originally posted by Karl Projektorinski: Also, the picture of regina before she sang was stunning yes! and EnglishGuy, I completely agree. SNL has really fallen off in recent years. This episode is really painful to watch. Bill Heder is very good though he's pretty much the saving grace.
  7. Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

    quote: Originally posted by bum bum bum: Does he deserve a Nobel Peace prize? Maybe not. I'm thinking it's more of a push on him to come through with some of his promises, and a recognition that he has the worlds attention and has improved the image of the U.S. both directly and indirectly. Agree very very much. quote: is he aware that he's being hyped as Jesus: Revamped?? does he know that people genuinely believe that //he will save the world?!// if not, then he's surrounded himself with anything but public relations, and shouldn't assume, as he did in this e mail, that we're supporting him. If he knows he's supported, he knows that too many people think that he's god. And that's something that needs to be nipped in the bud, Obama, Dear. This is a joke right? the only people hyping him as "the Messiah" or "Jesus: Revamped" are people like Musiclover and Rush Limbaugh and all of the other right wing pundits. No one on the left thinks he's god. A lot of people on the left are pretty unhappy with him so far, because he's being a bit of a pussy, quite frankly. That's why I agree with BBB's quote above. quote: He should squelch this ridiculous movement, so that people will support him for what he really is, rather than allowing this religious, unrealistic, maniacal cult-following. there is no movement. And guess what, if he came out and said "guys, stop thinking I'm Jesus," then all the pundits would flip out on him for thinking people thought he was Jesus ("is he really that arrogant!?!?!?") even though these are the same people who were pushing the Obama as the Messiah meme. The only reason Bush was elected in 2000 is because Al Gore was an inept campaigner and because Karl Rove is a genius. The only reason Bush won in 2004 is because Karl Rove was still a genius and the Kerry campaign was a terrible mess and Kerry was boring as fuck. quote: the nobel prize has been soiled. Chip Reid, at the White House press conference: "Ronald Reagan didn't get one, but Barack Obama... does?" Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard: "We could note that, if the Norwegians wanted to give the Nobel Peace Prize to an American, it would have been been better to give it to Sen. John McCain for having the guts to push through the surge in Iraq, which has brought relative peace to that country." Andy McCarthy, of the National Review: "I'm not all for Americans winning international prizes, especially the Nobel Peace Prize. In fact, I'm vigorously against it. The transnational progressives who pass out these accolades believe America is the problem in the world, the main threat to peace, the impediment to "progress," etc. The award is a symbolic statement of opposition to American exceptionalism, American might, American capitalism, American self-determinism, and American pursuit of America's interests in the world." So, to sum up: The GOP on the Nobel Prize: it's worthless and anti-american, and why didn't Ronald Reagan get one? great, guys, great.
  8. Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

    alright, so it may be too soon, but musiclover, he wasn't awarded 12 days after the inauguration, that was just when the nominations had to be postmarked by. The actual voting just happened. Also, you've gotta chill with this "Messiah" nonsense. But seriously, as much as right-wingers like to think he hasn't, the President has done more for global relations in a short time than anybody else. If the U.S. is really the greatest country on earth, then be better damn well act like it. I can't stand these American exceptionalists who think they're the best country and don't give a shit about what the rest of the world thinks. How narrow-minded can you be? The world needs the U.S., but it needs a responsible U.S. Obama, in a very short time, has been working his ass off to make the U.S. a useful part of the global community again. And look: On September 24th, Barack Obama was the first sitting US president to chair a U.N. Security Council summit meeting. He then proceeded to talk up not just nuclear non-proliferation, but total nuclear disarmament. That's pretty damn peaceful. The meeting was September 24th. The Nobel Committee last met on October 5th.

  10. Most played Regina song?

    my most played single track is Apres moi from BTH with 206, followed by the Lolla version of Bobbin for Apples with 190. However, on my last.fm, which does it by title and not just individual tracks (so it lumps in all the different live versions together with the album version) the list is: Apres moi - 367 Ghost of Corporate Future - 246 Bobbin for Apples - 238 On the Radio - 214 Blue Lips - 187 (this is mostly live versions I haven't listened to the album one that much) so yeah Apres moi wins either way I suppose...
