  1. Back to the Stix

    Hi everyone!!! Sooooo I haven't been on the stix in about a year or so. Not because my love for Regina's music has faded, if anything I'd say I've grown much fonder and more open to her stuff. I'm still just as obsessed (I even search Youtube for the most recently added vids of her pretty much every day or two). Why then? Well, I guess I just felt there was a lot of bickering and such and I didn't feel the stix was the place of love, sharing, and admiration that it used to be when I was a "lurker." I suppose the "downfall" started when the old demo tracks started leaking out... everyone was at eachother's thoats! From there it grew and grew, until I got... bored of it all I guess you could say. Slowly I stopped posting (not that I posted much anyway -- for many year I simply read), then stoped lurking around, and finally I felt no urge to check up on the stix at all. But this is all in the past (I'm hoping)!!! So my question for you guys now is what's up on the stix?! Who are the new "Adreseng" or peeps who quickly make their way up to thousands of posts! Now, over a year and a half later, what does everyone think of Far!?!? My expectations weren't the highest for "Live in London" but it blew me away of course! What's the "scoop" in the stix world. What did I miss? Any big projects or good discussions you've cooked up? Fun rants/stories? Perhaps an oldie but goodie I may have missed? Tell me all! As always, thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you and yours are all doing well this holiday season!

  3. New music we should all hear

    Hey guys... so I haven't posted in months i think. I know, I know, just sticking to my routine. Anyway, I couldn't find any thread for recommending musicals and showtunes! Since I'm pretty sure I won't get many answers, I didn't think there was a need to start a completely new thread. So I thought I'd ask here: What are you favorite musicals and songs from which you'd recommend? Any knew up and coming ones we should all know about?
  4. Wee Rants

    How did a go over a year on the stix and not know this?!? Alrighty, well speak up Canton/Ohio-stixters!
  5. Your First Post

    Mine was on the lyric chain game thread, in which I quoted Your Honor. But I'm pretty sure I had another account before this one to post a few random things. I was one of those "lurkers" for about a year, so it was easy to slip in so nonchalantly to the stix
  6. Wee Rants

    ^^Agreed. You can't let the stupid people get to you though... as hard as it may be sometimes. Anyway, on to my rant. My dad is moving to Canton, Ohio because he got offered a good job there. So, I'm all for him making a larger salary but... What the hell is there to do in Canton freakin Ohio?!?!?!?!?!? I still have a year before going off to college, so I have to put up with this. Luckily I'm staying with my mom, but I'll still be visiting quite often. Now I haven't moved a lot in my life, so I'm pretty comforable being an east coast-er. If anyone here lives near Canton.. what the hell is there? *wee rant done*
  7. If anyone needs sheet music...

    quote: Originally posted by sweetness in my lungs: E.J!!! THANK YOUUUUU!! I'll download it right away! And Happy Hooker! I've been planning to learn that solo for ages, but I just never sat down and took the time. I would appreciate your help! The Noise is on regispek in some strange file that I can't open or convert... help anyone? Oh. and last: what program should I use if I want to transcribe something myself for you guys? edit: thanks for the help on PoF mrimarokr I'll try to understand what you're talking about ok. very last. Lady is also on regispek, but in na MTD-file? I've tried using Primo PDF, but it just tells me it failed, code: -21. I use Finale NotePad 08... but thats for my own simple songs and such, otherwise go to the more advanced stuff
  8. school = :(

    So-- that lyric from "School is Out" where she talks about staying after due to uncomprehension of high school physics... basically defines my life right now. Or at least this semester. If anyone has any tips for surviving such a sucky, godforsaken class... please let me know.
  9. Most Played?

    On Far... Two Birds (I'm a sucker Overall, Where Is My Mind, by Pixes is my top played... I won't bore you with the rest because it's mainly consists of reg songs, oldies like the beatles, the clash, queen, crappy 80's/90's alt. bands, etc. etc.
  10. Brumstix (friendly) Competition!

    Sweet.. I obviously haven't been on the stix in a while seeing as how I had no idea about this contest. I always record myself playing reg songs.. but rarely upload (and if I do I take it down in shame lol). Should be a fun contest for lurkers and members alike!
  11. If anyone needs sheet music...

    Oh and THANKS SOO MUCH E.J.
  12. If anyone needs sheet music...

    quote: Originally posted by Sgtcampsalot: quote: Originally posted by 23Allie23: Daniel Cowman (the good part haha) The whole thing??? Well there has been a bit of it up on regispek, but its pretty much the first verse and that's it. So when I said good part, I ment... the rest of it haha
  13. If anyone needs sheet music...

    Hey guys!!! I haven't been on in at leat a month (being the bad stix member that I am)! Anyway, I have a rough idea of the chords and such for these, but it would be awesome to get some sheets for: Small Town Moon The Noise Two Birds Aquarius Daniel Cowman (the good part haha)
  14. Regina on SNL!! - Oct 10 2009

    Apparently when the comedy gets better, so doest the musically talent!!! Both portions of the show have kinda sucked since the early/mid 2000's... until recently. Oh and you never know, sometimes the musical guests at least help the host(s) close the show?!?!
  15. Never Forget

    Though I didn't know anyone who died that day, it effected me deeply. 9/11 completely changed many aspects of our daily life here in the US, especially in the North East, and further more NYC. I lived only about 2 1/2 hours away at the time, so my mom freaked out (obviously), took me and my siblings out of school. She wanted to make sure we knew what was going on, she said it was important to understand the situation so we could understand how it effects us. Being only 9 at the time, I was pretty traumatized with what I saw on the news, and what I had heard. I'm sure many of you guys can relate, seeing as how many of you were young at the time. I think it made our generation mature quicker than others. This might also be why so many young people are so politically active as well. Just a quick summary of my experience, so I hope someone, somewhere can relate.
  16. 100,000th Post Party!

    Wow, after all those stats I feel like a bit of a Regina fan failure. Maybe not a fan failure, but a stix failure haha. I haven't even reached 150 yet. I gotta get on here more often haha But I thought the whole "23 members have contributed more than 50% of all posts." was pretty freakin amazing. Those peeps should get a stix award of some sort. Hmmm...
  17. Regina Spektor: The Movie :)

    Agreed^^ I wish you the best of luck man!! If you need any help from your peeps here at the stix, just say when!
  18. Do you have Celbrity Worship Sydrome??? (CWS)

    I totally fit in the intense-personal catagory, which I thought was fairly healthy before reading this thread...
  19. John Cusack is a Regina Fan!

    I know everyone's sick of this topic of celebrity fans by now, but I figured I'd put it our there. I was watching a interview with Daniel Radcliffe for the new Harry Potter movie, when the interviewer asked him about his music interests. He brought up a few lame punk rock bands, bug then said how much he loves Far!!! I know many will disagree with me, but that would be pretty cool if harry potter started to support her. I think we fans ate kinda selfish, in a way, to want Regina to stay... well unknown-ish. When really, we should be spreading the love! And we need all the help we can get
  20. The WRONG answer game

    A. So the streetlight people will stop believing Q. Why is a raven like a writing desk?
  21. 500 Days Of Summer

    Argh!!!! I was in Boston all last week and couldn't manage to catch a showing! I am deeply disappointed w/ myself. Limited releases like this suck
  22. I second the Johnny Depp motion... for various reasons that I won't bore you with (my nerdy obsession with film and people watching is to blame)!!!! But I would also like to nominate another canidate: Mr. Blue Sky! Often sought out and rarely found, yet he still helps out during these sucky times, by bringing us eternal sunshine ^^ If anyone gets the reference lemme know!
  23. 500 Days Of Summer

    I'm really excited for this movie as well. I've heard it called the next "Garden State" (not sure if you guys have seen it or not) ... which is basically a "love it" or "hate it" type film. Not only this but I absolutally adore Zooey Deschanel. And don't even get me started on the soundtrack -- not only is Regina on it... but I love the rest of the bands/artists/songs as well!!!
  24. Michael Jackson dead?

    He just knocked Regina off of the top 10 on iTunes (U.S.)! Maybe her Letterman appearance will help a bit?!? I want to be angry with MJ for this, but I can't because his music is awesome... and he's dead haha
  25. Far "Purists vs Non-Purists"

    quote: Originally posted by MusicLover_2007: Next thing you know Regina will be doing Michael Jackson covers to satisfy demand! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ... but that would be kinda cool, you gotta admit
