    After watching the MOATF video, i now feel like i know what it feels like to be on an acid trip. If acid trips were pleasant... and composed of regina's face. edit- oh, and my reaction to time is all around: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

  6. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    So, I wasn't going to listen to the entire album before it came out, just the new songs once or twice, to get the feel of them but not over-indulge myself, but since it came on myspace i couldn't help myself and i listened to it straight through, so here's what i thought: I don't dislike the production of Blue Lips anymore like I initially had, I just had to take time to get used to the change, and now I really like it. I'm really digging the transition from Human of the Year to Two Birds to Dance Anthem; Human of the Year kind of leaves you in a gloomy, ominous mood, then Two Birds kicks in and picks your soul right up and makes you feel on top of the world, then Dance Anthem takes your good mood and makes you just want to dance. To me, those three songs are the high point of the album, and at the moment my favorite three. Machine is really really awesome. There's no way I can describe it more than that. And The Wallet is just how I always imagined it in my head. The only complaints that I have are with Folding Chair and OMTWF. I don't have a lot of beef with Folding Chair overall, I just have some emotional attachments to the way she sings some parts in the demo version (ex: "I've got a perfect boOoOoDY" "And have a baby booOOOYY" "grafitti up his tooOOOYYS" "you silly clooownnn") that I'm sure to get over in time. Plus I don't like the dolphin part. It's too harsh. And now for One More Time With Feeling. Honestly, I don't think it's as drastically changed as everyone is claiming it to be. If you took out the drum part, it would sounds fairly similar to the original, just sped up a little. My number one problem with it is the drum part. It's just so standard (most of the drums on the record are, which makes me a bit miffed, but I got over it on the other songs, maybe i'll get over it with time on this one) and doesn't add anything ANYTHING at all to the song. I feel like I could get used to the happy tone of the song, if the drums weren't there. But they're not going away, which makes it all the more frustrating for me. And, coincidentally, Genius Next Door happens to be the only song on the record I haven't heard yet, because on the myspace page they have The Wallet in it's place. The irony of it almost makes up for the sadness I feel at not being able to listen to it. So there you go. Overall, the record's really amazing, and it'll probably be my second fav after Soviet Kitsch.
  7. eet!!

    I really really really really really love it!!! in fact i think i love it more than laughing with. i really like the way she sings "eassyyyYYYYyyy", and i'm also really happy that the drums actually sound real this time, and that the drum part is actually cohesive with the song, which i felt wasn't the case in Laughing With. i'm planning on repeating this video for the rest of my life.
  8. Dance Anthem of the 80s video!

    there aren't any words to describe how happy this video makes me feel. perfect production on the song also, couldn't ask for anything more.

  13. Our Regina art.

    Here's a little drawing I did, based off of one of my favorite reg piccys. It actually turned out pretty well, considering I don't really draw too often.

  15. What is the greatest TV show ??

    quote: Originally posted by cheap&juicy: i can't believe no one's mentioned "it's always sunny in philadelphia"! My best friend is in love with that show. It is really good. I like the one where Dennis and Dee become crackheads. Others that I like arreeee... Heroes The Office (I find Steve Carell to be unusually sexy.) Gilmore Girls Scrubs Sex and the City 30 Rock And my two guilty pleasures: America's Next Top Model and One Tree Hill. Don't hate. Don't hate. I really really just can't get into any of the animated shows like South Park and Family Guy. I just can't. Ohhh! And on G4 there's this show called Ninja Warrior. It's all these japanese people going through obstacle courses and they all get really really into it and quit their jobs to train for it and stuff. Best. Show. Ever.
