  1. If you like Regina, you might like....

    Sarah Blasko. She is a super talented female artist from Australia. First song I recommend listening to is "Queen of Apology." Joanna Newsom. You'll either love her or want to scream when you hear her music. She plays the harp and sings along (in a very unique voice). Again, an amazing female artist instrument and lyric wise, although I am impartial to her vocals. Listen to "Peach, Plum, Pear" from The Milk-Eyed Mender album. Sufjan Stevens. He is a very upbeat male artist. You may have heard his song "No Man's Land" on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. You'll love him. Everyone add on to this list!

Never before in all my readings of the stix have a come across a more accurate description of this forum and many of it's users. It pretty much sums up the reason I don't post here, as much as I'd like to.
  4. My heart is still pounding! It was totally by accident.... I was browsing Regina Spektor related questions on Yahoo Questions, and there was someone who asked where a hard copy of 11:11 could be purchased, and someone answered saying either ebay (of course) or half.com. I'd never heard of half.com so I checked it out, searched for Regina, and there it was. A copy of 11:11, going for only $249. I want to cry (out of joy)! The seller had over 1500 sales, with a %100 score, so I'm pretty sure I'm not getting screwed here. The only thing that sucks is that I am not rich, so it is kind of a sacrifice, but one I am totally willing to make for a piece of Regina's music that is so rare and beautiful!
  5. 'concequence' typo

    quote: (as opposed to the intentional misspelling of lulliby) Whoa, I didn't know Regina did that intentionally! Do you know why she did that?
  6. WE HAVE SOME BRUMSTIX BIRTHDAYS TODAY!!!!!!

    Happy Birthday Perks!
  7. I can't believe it--I just bought 11:11 (hard copy)

    quote: Originally posted by JohnnyC: quote: Originally posted by clementine: My heart is still pounding! I want to cry (out of joy)! That copy was destined for you! Way to go! The quality of the 11:11 that we all have is not very good, so this CD is gonna sound friggin' awesome. Do you think that once you get it, you could rip it as the raw files for us???? (easy to do, if you need directions) The files will be big though, so it's not small request, but I'll send you my heart in the mail if you feel like doing it It's always bothered me that we only had the old mp3s of that album floating around and no actual CDs. In closing: Either way, you rule for getting your hands on one! We're talking FLAC files, right? Either way, you might have to walk me through this...but I'll do anything for my friends on the stix!
  8. I can't believe it--I just bought 11:11 (hard copy)

    Here are some crappy photos (blame Blackberry) I just took of 11:11! It really is one of the most amazing things I have held in my hands. When I get a chance, I am going to scan the front cover with the super high quality scanner at my work so we can at least have a true-scale photo of the front cover floating around on the internetz.
  9. I can't believe it--I just bought 11:11 (hard copy)

    Aaaaaaahhhh!!!!! It just arrived! I'm afraid to touch it... So, JohnnyC, how do you want to do this?

    quote: Originally posted by andreseng: clem, I get what your saying. And if you'd like to talk about another singer I'd encourage it and definitely check out. But this is something completely different. This is a reg board and this is an overt attempt at promoting another artist only. I guarantee you this person is on a street team or some such thing. I don't just label a post spam because of their post. I check out all their posts first. In this particular case if you look at this persons historical posts, it's always about someone else. Not one word about reg. Come here, contribute, then you earn the right. But to just show up here out of left field and start talking about someone else is an abuse. The mere fact that I'm perpetuating this post by replying is bad. But I want to set the record straight. I don't do it without researching first. I completely agree. I checked out this user's other posts as well (before posting my first comment) and I am well aware that they are abusing the forum. My comment was in no way an attempt to stand up for or minimize "dzbap326's" lack of contribution and respect for this forum. I was just amused by the user's complete idiocy and I loved the spam photo you put up. Sorry for the miscommunication on my part

    I am making a wild guess, but is it Lounge?

    Yes, have a super-happy birthday!
  15. the "worst" song

    Fortunately for all of us, Regina is so unbelievably versatile, constantly experimenting, and always surprising us. Of course there are going to be those songs that you skip over (for me it's "Prisoners"), simply because it doesn't speak to you like another song may. One thing I am quite sure I can say that applies to all stixers is that each of us can appreciate every song Regina has ever created; her "little monsters" as she cutely christens them in one interview
  16. regina lyric chain game!

    And you're going in, in for the kill, kill For the killer kiss, kiss for the kiss, kiss
  17. Life before Regina...

    Before Regina: I didn't realize that being an artist in every way imaginable was possible. After Regina: I try to live by Reg's lyric: "today we're younger than we ever gonna be." I love it!

    quote: Originally posted by andreseng: You'll probably find that everyone outside of this community will think you were nutz. I wouldn't tell 'em. Only us smarty pants realize the value of your score! This is true. Regina's music influences my life much more than my friends and family could ever realize, so it's nice to know that there's a place where I can communicate with others who relate to Regina like I do. Not to mention that everyone on here is super nice, friendly, helpful, and pretty much every other adjective that describes a trait you'd look for in a good friend.

    quote: Originally posted by andreseng: Wow, clem, joel would be proud! Congratulations. That is a rare and beautiful find. And you avoided the bid process too. hahaha it took me a moment to realize what you meant by Joel! But I agree, he would have no other choice except to be proud. Yeah I'm still in shock that it was not on ebay, at around $400 or more. I just called my mom and told her. She thinks I'm absolutely mad for paying that much for a cd. *sigh* She doesn't understand...

    Here's another on ebay right now: SK Book
  23. So it was my first day at voice lessons--ever--and my instructor was asking me what style I wanted to sing, what aspects of my voice I wanted to improve, and so on. I told him I wanted to sing like Regina Spektor! He had never heard of her. So I tried to portray her godliness in words, and I couldn't, so he was like, "Let's Youtube her." He clicked on the live "Real Love" video, and watched it all the way through. His exact reaction was: "I am completely floored. Here is this quirky, quiet, giggling girl (who sounds like she's ten) contributing to relief in Darfur, but when she opens her mouth to sing, the crowed is entranced, and she takes complete control." So, I think he likes her.
  24. Regina Spektor: A woman of substance

    quote: Originally posted by Andre: quote: "I think I got into it too much, actually," she says mischievously. "Now, if anybody says something I'll be like, 'Fuck you!'" So cute. At the Reg show I went to, she was yelled at the audience, "Shut the fuck up!" It really was the cutest, most endearing use of the fuck word I have ever encountered!
