  1. The 24 Hrs. Playlist

    I know this thread has been dead for a long time, but while I was getting a haircut today the radio was playing in the salon and I heard If You Only Knew by Shinedown, and one of the lines is "It's 4:03 and I can't sleep" and so when I heard it, I immediately thought of this thread.

Darn. I was like seconds too late to spread the good news.

    SHE DEBUTED AT NUMBER 17!!!!!!!! I missed when they played it because I was sleeping. But I woke up at 10:45 and watched them play clips of all the videos before the number 1, and regina was on! SO EXCITING!
  5. Vote for Regina's Laughing With on the VH1 countdown!

    I don't think she made the countdown again this week. She didn't make videos 20-15 or the countdown contenders, so I don't think she's going to be on. :[ :[ :[
  6. Michigan???

    I'm going to the Michigan show! I'm super excited!!!!
  7. The Next New Single?

    The Calculation. It is very cute and I think it would do well with the masses. and that's a good thing because it's still very regina "So we made our own computer out of macaroni pieces And it did our thinking while we lived our lives" I mean, come on! can you get cuter than that?!?
  8. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    quote: Originally posted by Lost in the Sounds: Ok... I listened to the album all the way through for the first time last night, and I was completely floored. I cried three times. I just was overcome with love for what I was hearing it was awesome. The tears came during Human of the Year, Genius Next Door (Jeff's background vocals are stunning, I didn't think I was going to like it, but my god!!!) and of course Man of a Thousand Faces. Soooo beautiful. songs never make me cry and that kind of frustrates me because I pretty much can cry at anything else, but no matter how beautiful a song is, I still can't cry EDIT: Actually I lied. I have cried during one song but it's really embarrassing so I'm not going to say it.
  9. Which is the better album?

    quote: Originally posted by MusicLover_2007: quote: Originally posted by Pavlov's Stepson: quote: Originally posted by Appt: I'm gonna repeat myself and say: Stop treating Regina like she's some mindless puppet operated by producers/warner music, she is fully capable of making her own decisions - no one is make them for her. I'd never say that Regina or anyone else is a mindless puppet, but record contracts are written by record company lawyers to protect the interests of record companies, and the record companies retain ultimate control. That's the way it works. I've got horror stories. The process is amicable certainly, and they let the musicians make most of the musical decisions and think that they're in charge. But if a conflict arises and the producer wants something more palatable for mass comsumption, the producer wins. It's in the contract. And the facts bear this out; Far is a lighter, fluffier, and more radio-friendly Regina. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan. A mediocre Regina is better than anything else out there, but it's just a shame we get it filtered rather than straight from her gut. Just STOP IT. Reg has 100% control over what gets done in the studio. Stop suggesting that she's being coerced into anything, unless you can provide evidence. I truly believe that the reason Far sounds the way it does is because Regina is evolving as an artist. Not that the producers on the album didn't contribute, but I agree with Musiclover that Regina is in control. Anyways I think that I remember reading an article awhile back that one of the producers wanted Regina to change some of lyrics, but she said no. and are any of the lyrics changed on Far? no. regina won.
  10. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    Here's me with my copy of Far:
  11. Which is the better album?

    quote: The only way i can try to describe it is by telling you to go listen to it straight through, turn up the volume a bit on somedays, and then cry. I forgot about how amazing it is to listen to Soviet Kitsch all the way through. I used to do it a lot when I fist got the Cd but now I don't. Far was utterly amazing and epic and everything but still. and when I listened to soviet kitsch (and begin to hope I guess) it was the first time that I had heard those songs. For Far that wasn't the case. Most of the songs I have live recordings of, and even the new songs I listened to a whole bunch before I got the CD. Experiencing all the songs for the first time all at once is kind of a powerful thing.
  12. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    whoa. I just finished listening to it all the way through. Far is amazing. I can't even describe it. like I can't express its epicness because I think I'm still in shock. wow

  16. Our Regina art.

    Thanks guys!
  17. Our Regina art.

    This was my art final: In the background, which you can't see very well, it repeatedly says "I'm not a skillful water carrier, but I've learned to carry love" and inside the whale the rest of the Aquarius lyrics are written amidst the designs.
  18. Recommend a book here...

    I bought The Master In Margarita in a used booked store a couple months ago cause I knew it was Regina's favorite book. I haven't taken the time to read it yet, but hopefully I'll get a chance this summer. quote: Originally posted by Appt: Btw, I'm presently reading Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. I listened to part of the book on CD while on a car ride. It was sort of interesting,but it seemed very disconnected. Like all these different little stories kept taking place. This may be because I kept falling asleep while listening to it though...
  19. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    Well except for that one person, I was really pleased by the positive reaction
  20. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    So my friend told me about this earlier today... I don't know who's heard of the band The Academy Is, I don't really listen to their stuff, but my friend is a big fan. Anyways, the lead singer has a blog and he posted a thing on Saturday about Regina! It's short, but here it is... http://thewilliambeckettblog.c...warmup#disqus_thread

  23. Vote for Regina's Laughing With on the VH1 countdown!

    She didn't make the countdown this week or at least I don't think she did because I stopped watching after they got to number 15 and I don't think that Regina would have gotten higher than that. I even woke early to watch it
  24. Additional far Tour Dates

    Dentistgirl, have you bought your tickets yet? Because I'm confused about the 2 prices for the Ann Arbor show. It's says P2: $32.50 P1: $48. Is P1 the floor and P2 the balcony?? And if that is so, how important is it to be on the floor? Because I'm going with 2 of my friends who aren't diehard regina friends and they might not want to opt for the more expensive tickets... someone please advise me!
