  1. Regina answers 5 Questions for VH1

    i enjoyed jager a lot for a few months following my 21st bday. then one morning i woke up and i thought oedi...i mean "never again"
  2. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    personally, i like it a lot better when pre-orders are designed to get people who don't normally pay for albums to buy them, not when they are designed to take advantage of the people who were already going to buy it in the first place. oh well, i pre-ordered the "fan edition" anyways. i just really want that damn lithograph.
  3. Face The Music / Jeff Lynne

    as far as i'm concerned, this album is shaping up to be better than begin to hope. don't get me wrong, i liked BTH, i just think what i've heard so far is a nice middle ground between soviet kitsch and BTH, and i think that suits regina much better.
  4. Face The Music / Jeff Lynne

    haha looks just like will ferrell's character from the famous blue oyster cult SNL skit. all he needs is a shirt that is way too small for him and a cowbell in his hands.
  5. Whyn't You Help A Brother Out!?

    doseone. period. none of the other rappers mentioned can match regina's creativity. regina and themselves should do a tour together.
  6. it's opening in my town on july 31st
  7. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    i have been away too long. this is the best damn regina song i have heard in a long time. her fun songs are fun, but i loooove the dark side of regina spektor.
  8. My gosh, the radio recut of Better is dreadful.

    i really didn't like what had become of better when i heard the original begin to hope version. this new recut sounds closer to what i originally liked about the song when i heard it live. although, i tend to prefer the stripped down regina (in more ways than one! lol) as opposed to the full band regina.
  9. How big will Regina get?

    her popularity has already increased by tenfold just in the past couple of years. this last year was especially huge for her. in june of '06 i saw her play to a crowd of a few hundred (bigger than the crowd i saw her at a year earlier) at a modest club in seattle. just 4 months later i saw her play a sold out show at a theater holding nearly two thousand people. with all of the t.v. shows and commercials she's being featured on, not to mention another very accessible single getting ready to hit the airwaves, i only imagine her getting bigger and bigger in these coming months. it's very exciting and a little sad (happy tears) at the same time. it's kind of like watching your child grow up, not that i know anything about that. who cares if she wins a grammy? although, i'm sure she would be quite honored if that were to happen, contrary to some beliefs. it could be the start of a new trend in the music biz. i'm already surprised with how well the public has taken to regina so far. and if more and more artists follow radiohead's lead, the record industry will have no choice but to respond by doing things differently. hopefully, that means more true and unique artists are rewarded for their talent and creativity.
  10. 1999 demo tape

    her reaction comes as no surprise. can't blame you though, peter. you're a good guy for doing as she wishes. never should have brought it up to her, though.
  11. New version of Better in the works?

    i have always liked the piano-only version of better over the album version.
  12. Download Live at the Moore April 25th

    yeah this is awesome....thanks! i know someone that is really going to like this.
  13. Past Show: 4/25/2007 The Moore Theater Seattle, WA

    the show was great. so nice to finally hear uh-merica live. i thought the crowd did a pretty good job on that song, but i have to cringe during other songs when they try to clap along and less than half of them can actually keep the beat, and even less know when to stop. very happy to see her go solo again. and i prefer the audience to not know the words to songs. lets me hear regina that much better.
  14. lolz. does this have something to do with regina being jewish?

  16. Anyone kinda tired of Fidelity?

    i think i've played out just about every regina song just as much as fidelity. fidelity is a good song, but at the same time it is a tool. a tool to bring her fame. it's working so far, but i think it still has life in it, simply because there are a lot of people who still haven't heard it. i think it should remain the single a little bit longer, and then they can bring in the next one, and third shortly after. i don't think a better song from begin to hope could have been picked as the catalyst to regina's breakthrough. i would, however, like to hear her play something different on her tv appearances coming up.
  17. Who does Regina play with?

    she has come to seattle three times. twice as a solo act, and more recently with a live band. i wholeheartedly prefer the former.
  18. Fidelity getting airplay on Sirius 9

    i heard fidelity a couple times on sirius on my plane ride to mexico last month.
  19. Apres Moi Russian Lyrics?

    can you translate the 8th floor lyrics, too?
  20. AOL DL & VH1 Links

    i echo johnny's analysis. the only real drawback to regina being famous for me is felt at her live shows. the first two times i saw her were at small clubs where i was able to make my way to the first couple of rows. her personality and performance technique is perfect for this kind of setting. she thrives on making small talk with the crowd, and it makes for great entertainment. some performers make great music on stage, while others make up for what they lack in musical ability with superior entertainment skills on stage. regina is the rarest of performers who posseses both qualities. when i saw her last month it was at a theater that holds almost two thousand people. once again, she sounded great and she was as cute and funny on stage as always. however, the big difference is that the crowd was too far away to return her cute remarks. it's disappointing, but a small price to pay for one of the coolest, most deserving people in the world to obtain success. i can live with these kinds of shows knowing that regina is getting the recognition and acclaim that she absolutely deserves. the best part about her growing fame is meeting people who already know of her greatness. for the past few years i have found my musical tastes drifting away from everyone i know. the only people i talk to with similar tastes are all on the internet. as much as i like coming to messageboards like this one and discussing great music, i must say that it is extremely refreshing to actually be able to do it in the real world. i like paying small prices to see my favorite bands and performers at intimate venues, but deep down there is a part of me that wants them to get big just so i can go around saying "i knew these guys when they were playing shows for 50 people..." there is also a smaller part of my selfish side that wants to keep these artists to myself, but in the end i know that the pros outweigh the cons in that situation. it's funny, a friend of mine who is mainly into rock is finally asking me to make him a regina cd after hearing a clip on vh1. he's seen the posters on my wall for a couple of years, and now that there is some hype behind her he's finally interested.
  21. seattle show

    was anyone there? i was there and loved it. although, i don't like the moore theater. it's just a poor man's version of the paramount. it was amazing to see how much her fanbase has grown in the past 6 months. wow. i'm happy for her, though i hope one day i can see her in a small venue again. that could be tomorrow at the in-store, but i have to work. however, after tonight and realizing that seeing a regina show will probably never be the same i want to regain that intimacy that i've grown to love attending her previous shows. *cough cough* i'm feeling sick already. anyways, i thought the show was great. i liked seeing some songs in a new context with the band, but at times i felt i was being robbed of hearing the nuances of regina's beautiful voice. it's wrong of me to say i was "robbed" after only paying 20 dollars to see an absolutely enthralling performer work her magic.
  22. Rainrops

    sounds on par with what i've heard johnny. wouldn't it be awesome if regina did an archival recording for every song she's written? she did do a good job with all the begin to hope b-sides this time around though.

  24. she got a full page to herself in the "breaking..." section. not much to it, except for some background info, a cute picture of her on a mossy beach and a little hype saying fidelity could make her that "rare pop star with indie cred." the coolest part is that the little postcard advertisement is on the same page so it works as a bookmark to regina's article. every casual reader at the store will flip open the magazine and immediately see regina. the next best thing to a cover story i guess.
