  2. Soviet Kitsch

    i found soviet kitsch to be her weakest as an album, that is. theres a few gems on there.
  3. my regards to "Your Honor"

    i havent treated myself to a nice big quality steak in ages. i'll splash out on my next payday.
  4. my regards to "Your Honor"

    besides when i hear of 'meat market' i dont think of an actual meat market, i think of the simile 'meat market' which is a place where 'boys and girls go to watch each other.

  6. Demo mp3s

    fair enough
  7. Demo mp3s

    all three of those are under demos on the first site that was linked
  8. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    wots the security like on a windows host tho, i was under the impression its complete pap.
  9. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    stick with the accepted names people are already using, no point in complicating things more
  10. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    watch copyright on magazine scans, photos, recordings etc. most cases an email to the owners of an article and explainin that a link to their site will be present will get things sorted anyway.
  11. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    i'll probably have more to say when i get the chance to read this al properly, but yeh. a decent host server will let you link both reginapolis.com and reginopolis.com to the same place, so confused fans will end up in the same place, not that its really that important... people confuse sites all the time, if they dont get to the right place then i'm sure they'll realise that.
  12. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    *edit* i searched the forums and found this srg@reginaspektor.net seems to be your best bet if you havent tried already reading that thread (and this one aswell i suppose) has made me actually realise people behind fanpages... i've always appreciated collaboration fo fans, especially on these forums as theres so much going on, not only with recordings, but sheet music too... but now i've put mroe of a personality behind the fanpages people make, .net is a great website so if srg reads this, thanks again!
  13. An up-to-date Regina fansite?

    i think this is a good idea. definately should wait till we get in contact with whoever is doing reginaspektor.net i'm no expert but i imagine it would be valuble to have him/her involved because he/she knows about the kinda bandwidth that website is taking etc... also, no point forking out cash on another server, spending money on hosting files which are already hosted on reginaspektor.net (would want to have it as complete as is legal) ... no point splitting the fans between 2 sites... all that kinda thing makes sense to collaborate, giving fans a central fansite rather than splitting... collaborating on hosting services... all round better. i do like reginapolis.com as an idea... gives the fansite its own identity aside from the official website, if you see what i mean... a collaboration might allow both addresses to link to the same site, possibly the same server? i do wonder about the cost.
  14. fidelity video

Anyone know if that's true? they never used to, but i think i've seen some here and there. most of the time people have added it to the 'other works' section... but i've never seen a profile which has included a complete accurate list of music videos
  15. hey raug i dunno why you're so bothered by the word pedant, i've never seen any1 take it as an insult before. and i've eaten my words about hallelujah aswell so i cant see why you're so bothered.
  16. quote: Originally posted by Raugust: You are mistaken: Cohen's original lyrics were substantially different from that of later covers, starting with Buckley. Although the first two verses were essentially the same, Cohen's third verse was "You say I took the name in vain, / But I don't even know the name, / But if I did, well, really what's it to you? / There's a blaze of light in every word / It doesn't matter which are heard / the holy or the broken Hallelujah", and his fourth verse was "I did my best, it wasn't much / I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch / I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you. / And even though it all went wrong, / I'll stand before the Lord of Song / With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah". Buckley's (and Regina's) third, fourth, and fifth verses were from another version of the song, also apparently by Cohen (hence my changing my recommendation on the crediting), but quite clearly not the original. Please get the facts straight before you start accusing others of pedantry and "missing a lot"; I'm only trying to help improve the list here, so trying to insult me really isn't warranted.. calling you a pedant is not me trying to insult you, you clearly are one!
  17. the arrangement of lyrics you talk of is the arrangement cohen used in first release of the song. for a pedant, you sure do miss a lot.
  18. quote: Originally posted by Raugust: Ah, I see Buckley just arranged the song in a new way, using other lyrics of Cohen's. My mistake. i just call it a cover
  19. buckley didnt write any of those lyrics.
  20. Joanna Newsom at the El Rey

    i wish i was i read a thread on here before where 2 people were bigginb her up, her and cocorosie, so i downloaded tracks by both and thought u'd have to be mental to like it, but since people loved them so much i left them both on my playlist. and they both grew on me haha turns out i downloded some of [what i feel are] joanna's weaker songs, so its only now that i downloaded more, ages later, that i've started appreciating her songs. would love to se eher live, i'll have to settle for the albums for now tho.
  21. Real Name?

    i'm pretty sure it is her real name, not sure about the russian ins and outs but theres at least one or two members on here who get off on that stuff so it wont be long till you find out
