  1. Signed Stuff

    quote: Originally posted by eshbach: edit: And as for age -- I was, in fact, a teenager (19 I think) in the signed picture from the last page. And I'm 24.75 years old now, so you're pretty much spot-on. And here I thought you were an older man buying me dinner after Dillo Day, Aaron- it helped me rationalize letting you pay for my meal. But, alas, you are simply a younger and more generous man than me. I know... what a strange comment to return the the 'stix with after many months. On an unrelated note, the show at Northwestern was nearly a year ago to the day. My oh my, that flying clock. By the way, just to echo your long post atop page 2 of this thread, Regina was most kind to rush out of her car to share a moment with us that day on the lake. And in regards to the Chicago Theater performance, the third-party security definitely was being overly aggressive/defensive. For her part, Regina was being as sweet as possible but it was clear the security wanted to keep the fan interaction to a spacial and temporal minimum. They even announced 'NO MORE HUGS!' just as I was about to 'meet' Regina for the first time. But hell with them; I was able to get in half a hug before the hulking security gentleman (imposingly towering over all on the right in the picture below) snarled and put his arm in between her and I. Yeah... that dude definitely wasn't the 'gentle giant' type.
  2. So I'm in love with Ксения...

    ... and there is no way I would have ever met her if not for Regina (and the Stix, for that matter). ^I think there was a solitary pickle in that burger.
  3. So I'm in love with Ксения...

    Some cross-posted excellence (as snapped by my less-than-spectacular cell phone camera): ReSpekt did drive the two of us together, after all. And the same is true for all you beautiful and dear 'stixers. Cheers.
  4. Regina is everywhere

    A smile-inducing find as Kseniia and I walked back to my car from the store the other night. It just works on so many levels.
  5. Urgent: Flower Arrangement for Dan

    As always, Aaron, the kindness in your soul is very much apparent and appreciated. Here's to you, sir- and to all who have chipped in their words, prayers, or dimes. RIP, Dan.

  7. Would you pay to get Regina to do a show for us?

    Oh my... well isn't this thread just lovely? I'd certainly chip in with a couple hundred (after the couple hundred that would need to plunked down for travel expenses, as well (never taken a bite of the Apple)). How could I not? The very idea of this is simply enchanting. That's right: EN-CHANT-ING. So count me and some of my scarce funds in, my dear 'stixers. And as an added bonus, I shall bring the paper plates! ReSpekt, Justin P.S. As I sat here thinking of the possibility of this ACTUALLY happening, I decided to professionally film myself and upload the video retroactively.

    I can't see the video (or the shoes), but with the audio stream and you lovely people, it feels like I'm there among friends.

I look forward to actually seeing the show (the youtube stream hasn't been able to load on my computer all damn weekend for some reason). Thank goodness for NPR and Mr. Eshbach, at least.
  14. To dentistgirl and eshbach...

    ... or Jamie and Aaron, as the folks on the street would call them: I meant and wanted to write this sooner, but have been busy since we last left, so please excuse the tardiness. As anyone can see on this board, Jamie and Aaron are very kind and generous people who are quick to share and give to their friends and fellow brumstixers (for brumstixers are their 'dear, dear friend'). The videos, the give-aways, the recordings, the rest... the two of them readily 'help a brother [or sister] out' while asking nothing in return. And needless to say, their kindness extends long out of the forums and into the real big blueberry world out there- as those who have had the chance to talk Jame and Aaron would know. And on Saturday at Northwestern, my fellow brumstixer, Ксения (Ksenia), and I were fortunate enough to bump into them and share a front row (and an afternoon). The day was very finely described by Jamie in the Dillo Day show thread, so I won't get into that. But I did want to say a few things more about it. I really don't think there is any way Ksenia and I would have been able have a moment with Regina (and I certainly know we wouldn't have had the delicious meal that followed) without the two of you. Your patience, resolve and zeal were certainly palpable as the minutes (and hours) passed. I know I certainly felt I was with the two people that could pull off the meeting despite whatever obstacles/mesh-covered fences and metal barricades were in the way. And sure enough, with your kind tenacity (as well as Regina's absolutely sweet heart), we four brumstixers somehow got to be the only four (among the thousands) that got to share a moment with Regina after the show. And although it meant so very much to get that picture and finish that hug from the first time I met her, I especially am grateful for that gift you were able to give Ksenia. As you could see and hear before, during and after, it was an overwhelming experience for her. And suffice to say, the feeling continued though the night, the morrow, the next day, the now and beyond. I could talk to her now and still hear it in her voice. So long ramble short, Jamie and Aaron, you helped give my friend a moment and weekend she will always remember and treasure (as will I). And for that, I truly do thank you, my new friends. ReSpekt, Justin P.S. You best believe you ain't grabbing that check before me next time, eshbach.
  15. Northwestern University's Dillo Day- May 29, 2010

    A hearty and soulful welcome to you, Lennonist. As well as a sincere thank you for sharing your story and love- it's very much appreciated. And so on behalf of all the 'stix: Hello, my new friend. We're fortunate to have you among our brum' brethren. ReSpekt, Justin P.S. Gracias for the official Northwestern photos of the day- though I have no idea how Jamie, Aaron, Ksenia and I managed to stay out of the slideshow when we were front row center. Ah well... at least I managed to get in the picture HERE. :-D
  16. photos of ourselves !

    From my recent three-dimensional Regina weekend. Hmmmmm... ^that posted excessively larger than I anticipated.
  17. Northwestern University's Dillo Day- May 29, 2010

    Gracias on the photos, good sir. They certainly take me waaaaaaay back to the day all those dozens of hours ago. From what I saw on the little LCD screen, Ksenia took some fine shots with her camera, as well. I'll be sure to post some when I get them. Side note: it was 'gorgeousness and gorgeousity' to see the lake breeze blowing through Regina's beautiful hair. It kept making me think of a stiff wind in the African savanna blowing through some majestic lion's mane.
  18. To dentistgirl and eshbach...

    ^I did notice the arm, and I'm glad you didn't manage to escape the full dimensions of the photograph. By the by, the next time a persistent bastard keeps trying to peer pressure you into taking some sunblock on a sunny summer afternoon, you should probably give in to temptation.

  20. Northwestern University's Dillo Day- May 29, 2010

    quote: After quite some time straining our eyes through the fencing, we saw a black SUV pull around as if waiting to pick someone...regina...up. Things felt immediately tense, but still no movement from inside the compound. A bit more waiting and a Dillo crew member appeared and opened the front passenger side door. It was happening, now. She stepped out and immediately into the car. Luckily the window was down, and a moment later the 4 of us were shouting "REGINA!!!" through the fence. The security guys behind us suddenly perked up, and I only wish I could’ve really seen the looks on their faces, but far more important matters were at hand. After much screaming and yelling on our parts, regina looked, and waved, but, I assume, couldn’t really see us through the fence. The SUV pulled away! We immediately ran/sprinted/chased the SUV to where the block-out fencing broke and only metal gates stood. Inside the car she was mouthing things to us, like that she was sorry. But in the next instant, the SUV stopped as well as the caravan behind. Regina emerged and raced across the pavement to us. I felt such suspense reading the climax to the story- and I was there. :-) A very well written (and detailed) account, Jamie. And cheers for putting up the videos. To be continued in another thread...
  21. Northwestern University's Dillo Day- May 29, 2010

    I've sent another email to the director of concerts for Dillo Day. She wrote back before and helped a brother out (helped a brother out... helped a brother out, out, out...) with useful info last time. Hopefully I'll hear back from her, and I'll be sure to provide the answers here if I do.
  22. I've always appreciated good stories by good writers. And that's what drew me most to Regina. Her lyrics stand alone without melody and read as pure poetry. Each individual song has its own story with strong meaning that's open to our respektive (pun intented) interpretations. And being a former film student who hopes to write screenplays one day, I can't help but try to piece together a much larger story from the smaller ones. So working off shared thoughts and themes (as I see them), I chose 25 separate and distinct Regina songs and attempted to arranged them in a way to best tell a linear, feature-length (if you will) and fully-arching story of a heart. If you have about an hour and half to kill or just want some continuous Regina background music, this hyperlink-y sentence you are reading right now will take you to the playlist on my youtube channel. But for the sake of brevity, this is my Regina (love story) playlist in order: 1) On the Radio 2) Dance Anthem of the 80's 3) Patron Saint 4) Raindrops 5) Folding Chair 6) Us 7) I Want to Sing 8) Fidelity 9) Oh, Marcello! 10) Two Birds 11) Open 12) Baobabs 13) Hero 14) Just Like the Movies 15) Time Is All Around 16) Samson 17) Bartender 18) Summer in the City 19) You 20) The Flowers 21) Lulliby 22) A Cannon 23) Aquarius 24) Loveology 25) One More Time With Feeling I'm interested in what my fellow Regheads think of my little big story. Suggestions? Critiques? I'd love to know how smooth and coherent it is from another's perspective. Needless to say, I put a lot of enjoyable thought to this playlist. And I'd be happy to explain why each song was chosen and placed where it was. But more than anything, I just kind of wanted to share and maybe start a new discussion of sorts. What would your playlist story be? I got a couple more story playlists in the works, myself. Each spanning 20+ songs (none overlapping) to tell completely different stories about completely different people. So I'll be sure to post those when they're ready. That and everything said, just keep in mind one thing about any playlists from me: I can write, but I can't edit. :-), Justin
  23. Lollapalooza 2007

    I know this is old and probably all shared long ago, but I noticed most all the links everywhere for the webcast of Regina at Lollapalooza are long dead. So I re-upped the entire show as one large video file that you can download for your collection (in case you're missing it): http://www.multiupload.com/P4CWSCNS2F Or if you just want to watch it all online, I created a youtube playlist (in order of the setlist) of Regina's entire Lollapalooza performance (including six songs that were originally taken down by WMG for copyright poop): http://www.youtube.com/view_pl...t?p=DCDD78C98F2EBE1E Sooooo... yeahhhhhh. It's a great (and high quality) Regina show with some awesome live versions. You should have it. And you should have a great day. Cheers.
  24. Lollapalooza 2007

    Yeah, I now see that Bonnaroo file has a lot of encoding problems. The video does work but not with all players. I uploaded it on zshare and you can watch it streaming online: http://www.zshare.net/video/751668148fc0e78e/ Unfortunately, the whole video/audio skips and gets out of sync more than halfway through during Fidelity (the same issue ntd123 mentioned). There must be a better version of the webcast, though, because 'staten' on youtube uploaded a few of the later videos from the show and they are in sync (unless he edited the audio and video tracks). I don't know if it's available anywhere, but I'll look around a bit more. In the meantime, have Regina's Barfly performance from 2004: http://www.multiupload.com/33DDKCT96B ^It's just about the most awesome show ever. A DEFINITE must-have if you don't already.

Bonnaroo is the third show from the top: http://www.respektonline.com/videos.php And you all are most welcome for Lollapalooza. I just wanted to share and make sure some of my fellow Regheads had a chance watch the show if they hadn't already.
