  8. When is the next NYC show????

    quote: Originally posted by andreseng: I grew up here Perks. Specifically Brooklyn. And that was way before the "renaissance" that's bringing a huge influx of people. There putting up new residential spaces quicker than they can tear down the old tenaments. There's been a big drop in the crime rate too making NYC one the safest cities in the world. You'd do fine in New York, you have moxy, that's the only prerequisite for living here. reg lives here, what more do you need? At minimum you should go by that "Sunscreen Song". Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard. Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. no kidding about the new high risses and destruction of the old prewar buildings. it's also driving rent up at alarming rates all throughout the city. i'm so worried im going to be priced out of my building when it comes time to resign my lease in a few months. i really dont want to leave this neighborhood =(
  9. What are you listening to right now?

    tegan & sara - back in your head can't wait for this record!
  10. Regina Spektor Talks...

    wow what a great interview. she's someone i would love to spend a few hours at coffee shop chatting with about everything and anything.
  11. New music we should all hear

    quote: Originally posted by Becky Khvost: CocoRosie, Feist, Cat power, Sufjan Steevens... pretty good music!! Dunno the most of the others, but for those who know Cat Power surely also know Leerone? A good singer too! Hmmmm... I suppose most of you know Jason Webley? actually i don't know Leerone. what is the relation to Cat Power? I will have to check that out (<3 Cat Power btw).
  12. Rant about a band

    quote: Originally posted by Beechcraft Bonanza: Thanks! it's funny though, everyone says it sounds like Dylan but I actually tried to emulate Lou Reed But then... if you can find the acoustic demo version of Lou Reed's "hangin' round" (from "Transformer") he sounds like Dylan too! that he does! i love that version. there's a great acoustic version of Perfect Day as well.
  13. may i just say, i love soup

    quote: Originally posted by Eileen: simply wanted to add that i actually had a shrine to soup and regina SEPARATELY and screamed when i saw this forum. I'm so thrilled that there are others who share my love of soup...though i'm a bit of a traditionalist and my favorite kind is chicken noodle. im so happy there are more soup fans...and regina spektor is one of them! though i realize pickles are just pickles... while i've yet to ever have a penguin day, i hope that i do very soon. it sounds just a little bit like a great kinda day to have. perhaps while trying some of these soup recipes i will experience a true feeling of a penguin day?
