  1. New vinyl on Record Store Day!

    Amazing!!! Bulat Okudjzava and Regina Spektor are my favorite!!! Cannot wait to hear her cover of Okudjzava!
  2. Announcement about DVD :)

    OH MY!!! It arrived by mail today!!!!!!!!!!! The quality is superb, not to offend the fans recordings that I love so much. It's a funny feeling to hear to her old songs, that I know every note and every accent by heart, in a slightly, barely noticeable different performance this time around. I love it!!!

My question is whether the two disks they are talking about is the audio on one and the DVD on another since it says "format: CD." Very confusing... It is categorized as a blue-ray CD... http://bluray.highdefdigest.co...inaspektor_live.html Marry Ann, the Bluray/CD means you get both the blu-ray disc as well as a CD. If you don't have a blu-ray compatible player, you should not buy this. On Amazon they're selling the Audio CD as well as the blu-ray separately. On the warner bros website, they're selling the CD+DVD combo. This is probably the best and most affordable option. And yeah, I think it's ridiculous that the CD would be priced higher than the blu-ray. Thank you for sorting things out!!! I cannot believe that they added the product on Regina's website only now, instead of yesterday. Obviously, I have already ordered it from Barnes and Noble this morning.

  6. Announcement about DVD :)

    What do you guys think about this option at Barnes and Noble? http://music.barnesandnoble.co...&USRI=regina+spektor It's a CD and a DVD with the same tracks, so you buy the same songs twice in different formats. I don't really want a CD format, because I have these songs on her other CDs, except "Bobbing for Apples," "Silly Eyes Colour Generalizations," and "Love you are a Whore." I am not sure it is worth it... I wish they had just the DVD of the concert. Seems like the studio is milking it... I doubt there would be a super fan edition, though.
  7. RIP Dan Cho

    As trivial as it may sound. ... My condolences to Dan Cho's family and his band members.
  8. Regina at The White House!

    Playing the video of Regina's appearance at the White House, I couldn't shake off the feeling that THE SWORD AND THE PEN sounded familiar. I did a little research and came across a very popular movie in Russia during the 80's. Please check it out: and The Sword and the Pen
  9. Regina at The White House!

    I agree, Barth.
  10. Regina at The White House!

    I don't mean to offend anybody and I may seem harsh, but I really want to question the meaning of Heritage Month Celebration. quote: the enduring values of a history marked by so much tragedy –- not cynicism or despair, not callous indifference. Every person in this room knows somebody –- perhaps a mother or father, an aunt, an uncle, perhaps yourself –- who exemplifies this heritage. Every person in this room stands at the end of an unbroken chain of perseverance –- of a conviction that a better future is possible -- that doesn’t just offer a lesson to Jewish Americans. It offers a lesson to all Americans. And ultimately, that is what we are celebrating today. The President's quote mentions "the enduring values of a history marked by so much tragedy" - however, the quote does not specify what these values are! "The chain of unbroken perseverance" is exactly all the tragic events in Jewish history, including the Holocaust. It is a long-standing Jewish tradition to remember all the tragic events at the highest moment of celebration. This is what the Passover all about. Jews celebrate their deliverance from slavery in Egypt by performing a ritual of remembrance of their horrible condition and God's grace every year. There is not one Jewish celebration/holiday (except for Shavuot, which is a farming celebration) which is a purely joyous event. Each Jewish holiday has a moment of sadness to it, even the weddings. It is our tradition and it is what makes us persevere. If the Heritage Month is a celebration of Jewish tradition and the Jewish culture, remembering Holocaust on such occasion would be very appropriate. HOWEVER, I CAN SEE HOW THE LYRICS OF "INK STAINS" COULD BE MISINTERPRETED AND CAUSE A POLITICAL SCANDAL. Hence, I wish Regina had an opportunity to write a song for the occasion, instead of taking an existing song like "The Sword and the Pen" and adding a russian-jewish flavored twist to it. In any case, her performance was great! and she handled the stress pretty well. Here is a review of the event that I find very interesting: 0:t1275172782:&cd=YoB4G3vniYg&usg=AFQjCNGc5yjs0nDyGbu2_kqqEvljriLrng" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/url?sa=X...DyGbu2_kqqEvljriLrng

    quote: Originally posted by Barth: I love "Ink Stains" and the way it just shuts up an audience. It is not the song to sing at this occasion. This is a celebration of the Jewish heritage and what it has meant to for and in this nation. I wonder why do you think that "Ink Stains" is not good for the occasion? Holocaust is Jewish heritage all over the world. Many Holocaust survivors live in the US. Some of them even wrote books about it and these books are taught in college courses on Jewish-American literature.

    THANKS for the tip! Is there something wrong with quicktime player installed in the mac? Most of these files are AVI...?
  13. ReSpektOnline.com

    Respektonline was always the best source for songs and videos. But now I got a mac and it does not play the videos that I have saved from the site I am technologically challenged... any advice would be really appreciated! Million thanks for all your great work on this site!!!
  14. I agree with andreseng! Regina is 29 now, her first album 11:11 was self-produced in 2001 when she was 21. She just finished college and was far from being a celeb in any way. It's a bogus story.
