  1. Two Sisters

    Alright, alright, I know you're going to say that this is an old ballad and that it shouldn't be in lyrics section, but I think Regina's (and Levon Vincent's, I suppose) interpretation of the story should be discussed. first off, the lyrics: Two sisters went to the river bend Went too soon, they're liable to drown Parked their cars at the edge of the town Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down One was the poet's love One was the poet's laugh One had a fire in her breast One was the poet's eyes First they wash their feet Then they wash their hands One went right to sleep The other with gills and fins One sank down like a rock As the other one floated away Thinking about the ticking of clocks And what will the neighbors say? And a neighbor said Two sisters went to the river bend Went too soon, they're liable to drown Parked their cars at the edge of the town Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down Two sisters went to the river bend Went too soon, they're liable to drown Parked their cars at the edge of the town Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down To the river bend... Two sisters went to the river bend Went too soon, they're liable to drown Parked their cars at the edge of the town Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down and the wikipedia page on the story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twa_Sisters I hadn't read that before now, and I noticed Regina seemed to make some serious changes to the original plotline. It sounds to me like instead of the one sister murdering the other, they both drown (when I first heard this my assumption was by accident). Furthermore, it sounds like one dies (One went right to sleep) and the other turns into a fish? (The other with gills and fins) can't wait to hear your thoughts!

    I was listening to this song with my friend. She loved it, but asked me what it was about. The only answer I could give her was: "I don't know." can anyone help me give her a better one?

  4. Wee Rants

    thanks andreseng. We try to be as professional as possible with our productions, so stage kissing is definitely off the table. And if this year's show is any indication, our two leads have to go at it for a good thirty seconds (for a laugh of course, but still). Probably the most disturbing thing I've noticed is how lightly its taken in rehearsals, and in an environment like that I'll have to be professional and take it lightly too. And you don't want to take your first lightly.
  5. Wee Rants

    For the record I had no idea where to put this, I guess this is as good as any. So...I'm sixteen, and I haven't been kissed. I know, I know, this sounds like it's going to be one of those "I'll never be attractive to anyone ever because I haven't been kissed yet!" type of rants, but I actually have a very good reason why my lip-virgin status must be changed, and I need practical advice to help carry it out. Every year I'm in the musical production at my high school, and our directors have this ludicrous process of singling out somebody during one year to "build" next year's show around (i.e. give them the lead). Of course they don't actually tell you until after auditions the next year when they cast you, but they have their ways of letting you know and basically it becomes an open secret who they've picked. Well, I'm the 'chosen one' for next year. Since female leads in musicals are inevitably romantic ones, my fellow cast members have been giving me a resounding refrain of "you better get a move on" in the kissing department. Cause who wants their first to be on a stage while acting? So, even though I don't want to be, I am now on this PG-rated version of Rachel Berry's crusade before she played Maria in West Side Story (sorry for the Glee reference, but it was fitting). So, with a roughly eight-month deadline, I have three options as far as the other end of this kiss goes (We'll call them Guy A, Guy B, and Guy C). Guy A: The male version of myself, the other 'chosen one' for nest years musical. This is the defeatist option, the guy who I'm going to end up kissing on stage anyway. I've known him since I was in elementary school and I've had to reject him something like five times in the past two years. I really don't want this option to be my only option. Guy B: The ideal option. My first, shall we say, 'practical crush;' one I could actually see myself dating. I've known him since middle school, but we became good friends in high school. Last fall, in true 21st century feminist spirit, I asked him to our school's Christmas dance. He already had a date but he suggested that we go to prom instead, and I agreed. Well, at this Christmas dance a few months later, it happened that we both had ditched our dates and ended up spending the whole night together. After this I started to truly consider him as boyfriend material, and the response I got from our mutual friends was a resounding "It's a lost cause, he just isn't looking for a relationship right now." So when I realized the first kiss deadline thing, I figured Guy B at prom would be the perfect option. He'd undoubtedly be obliging, and since he isn't looking for a relationship, there's practically no chance that he'll be taken by the time we go to prom, right? Wrong. As I write this, he's on a date with Miss 'Soul Mate' (that is the most stupid phrase for a teenage boy to use! but that's another rant for another time). So it looks like they'll be an item before long and we will have a very awkward prom night. Guy C: This is a pretty good option too. I've known Guy C since I've been in high school, and he's one of those people that if he's your friend, he'll bend over backwards for you. So I have a feeling that he would do me the favor if I asked him (plus, he is good looking). The blatant, glaring obstacle is that I've never actually been alone with him, and I can foresee no circumstance in which we could be alone together and this could theoretically happen. So, I'm looking for some practical advice (practical in the strict sense of the word, meaning, 'able to be put into practice'). So tell me whether you would go with A, B, or C, and suggestions as to how in the world you would go about doing it or just advice in general that would be great. Thanks
  6. Regina faking?

    Holy crap! I was reading more on Judy and the song she sang for her audition with Louis B. Mayer the head of MGM was "Eli, Eli" how awesome is that!!
  7. Regina faking?

    My junior research paper is on Judy Garland (sidenote: how awesome is it that I get to do it on her? it doesn't even feel like work!) and I read somewhere that she used to mess up words on purpose, I guess so her audience could relate to her. She didn't forget words like regina does but just switch around a lyric every so often (after all, she had a band to be fair to) Anyway, if Judy did it, I have no beef with reg if she does.
  8. Six Thoughts...

  11. Name that Reg Tune... in other words

    "The garbage men were emptying the dumpsters" "When a physically pleasing female is presented to them, their emotional landscape resembles only acrimony, her carapace causes them to become dehabilitated during the part of the day after sundown and before sunrise." good luck

  17. Human of the Year

    I really love this song, but I kind of ruined it for myself. In an English class I was in a few years ago I had to write a poem based on someone elses character, so I chose Karl. I basically wrote this story from his perspective, showing that he never expected nor wanted to win, that it just sort of fell into his lap because he happened to be at the cathedral that day.
  18. school = :(

    this isn't really a rant about school, its about my parents in relation to school. They say I shouldn't go to college for business, because thats what my mom does and she can never get a night off. They say I can't go for the arts or humanities, because I'll never get a job and teching pays too low. So whats left? Math and Science?? in case they haven't noticed, those have been my lowest grades for years.
  19. HAPPY BIRTHDAY REGINA!

    Happy birthday regina! i didnt even remember until i saw the date on my phone. and whenever i wrote the date the entire day i drew little reg-themed doodles next to it
  20. Regina's Bits of Wisdom

    Hello all, If this is a silly idea let me know, but I was thinking we could compile a list of the meanings of Regina's songs. Not the complicated discussions we have in the lyrics thread, but just a few words about each that really get down to the crux of them; the moral of the story, if you will. The point of this list is that when we have those moments where we wonder why we bother, we can look here and say "thats why." This is what we've gotten out of it, we are all a little bit wiser. Here is a list of all of the songs (just a quick cut and paste thanks to the Complete Spektography thread) please comment with your ideas, and I will add them accordingly (they can be silly or serious, depending on the song of course) A Cannon - A Cooler Version of Yourself - AB - Aching to Pupate - Ain't No Cover - All the Rowboats - Another Town - Aprés Moi - Aquarius - Ave Maria - Baby Jesus - Back of a Truck - Ballad of a Politician - Baobabs - Bartender - Bear Spektor - Be Like A Cloud - Begin to Hope - Belt - Better - Blue Lips - Bobbing for Apples - Bon Idée - Braille - Buildings - BYOS - Carbon Monoxide - Chemo Limo - Chicken Song - Cinderella - Consequence of Sounds - Dance Anthem (of the 80's) - Daniel Cowman - Dead Rat - December - Dog and Pony - Dulce et Decorum est Pro Patria Mori - Düsseldorf - Dust to Dust - Edit - Eet - Eighth Floor - Fidelity - Field Below - Firewood - Flyin' - Folding Chair - Genius Next Door - Ghost of Corporate Future - Happy Hooker - Hero (of the Story) - Hotel Song - Human of the Year - I Cut Off My Hair - I Want To Sing - Ink Stains - Just Like the Movies - Lacrimosa - Lady - Laughing With - Left Hand Song - Long Brown Hair - Lounge - Love, You're a Whore - Love Affair - Lovology - Lucky Penny - Lulliby - Machine - Making Records - Man of a Thousand Faces - Marry Ann - Mermaid - Mockingbird - Music Box - My Man - Ne Me Quitte Pas - Ode to Divorce - Oedipus - Oh, Marcello! - On the Radio - One More Time, With Feeling - One-String Blues - Open Up Your Heart (Down the Road & Up the Hill) - Paris - Patron Saint - Pavlov's Daughter - Poor Little Rich Boy - Pound of Flesh - Prisoners - Raindrops - Reading Time with Pickle - Reginasaurus - Rejazz - Riot Gear - Rockland County - Sailor Song - Samson - Scarecrow & Fungus - School is Out - Secret Stash - Silly Eye-Color Generalizations - Small Town Moon - Soho - Somedays - Soup - Summer in the City - Sunshine - That Time - The Bronx - The Calculation - The Call - The Clocks Were Asleep - The Devil Come to Bethlehem - The Floor Heard Everything - The Flowers - The Mustard Musketeers - The Noise - The Sword & Pen - The Virgin Queen - Time Is All Around - 20 Years of Snow - 2.99 Cent Blues - Two Birds - Two Sisters Uh-Merica - Uncle Bobby - Us - Wallet - Wasteside - Woolen Gloves - You - Your Honor -
