  1. HELLO ALL. Oh jeez, so I've been a huge Regina fan since I was in 7th grade, and I am now a sophomore in college. But over all these years, I have never seen her perform live. I'm from Portland, OR and I discovered her right after she had a concert there, and then she didn't have another one for YEARS and I was so sad. Back in August I found out that she would be performing in Orlando at the House of Blues in November. (TONIGHT IN FACT!) I am actually down here working at Walt Disney World through the Disney College Program, and when I found out she was doing a concert literally 15 minutes away from my apartment, I screamed and cried and danced a lot about it and preordered my ticket. I was on this forum for like, 3 years and took a bit of a hiatus during which my account was apparently deleted or something, and I came back today to see how early I should get there and whatever (the only other concert I've ever been to was Bette Midler when I was 11 with my mom haha) and I didn't even see a thread for this show so I'm totally starting one. So yeah, first concert, if anyone has any advice let me know, I guess? And if anyone else happens to be going, yay! I'll post about it after, too, probably maybe.
  2. My really good friend's little brother almost drowned at scout camp today...he's going to be ok now, going to be in the hospital for a few days and probably shaken up for a long time, but I can't help but think about what would be happening right now if he had died...
  3. Ohhhh well...maybe I can catch Ingrid or She & Him in October so that I can say that I saw a concert I actually wanted to see before I was 18, and then wait another 5 years for Regina to come around... Not sure why the 18 part is important, but it is...I feel like such a kid, because I haven't done anything that cool, haha.
  4. I have a sneaking suspicion that I missed a Portland or Seattle show while I was on my regina hiatus...which would be, you know, TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME if I did after waiting for like, 2 years for her to finally get over here. D: D: D:
  5. I searched "with the blackbirds" on Youtube, because you just never know, and one of the videos was titled, "In the Studio with the Blackbirds." That's like, two mystery Regina songs in one title, haha. It wasn't anything exciting, though...just some boring musicians in a boring studio that had nothing to do with Regina...
  6. ...so, I haven't looked at this site in about a year, haha. But my life has taken an unexpected and crappy turn, and Regina's literally the only thing holding me together this week. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that I decided not to take all 600-something tracks of hers off my iTunes a few months ago. So, I'm catching up a little, haha. Yes, that's supposed to be good news. (:
  7. Hey whoa, people still take the quiz! I'm really glad you guys liked it. (:
  8. Regina is #1 on iTunes after Michael Jackson...I think that's interesting, I dunno. It's been a weird day, for sure.
  9. I thought it was Bobbin' For Apples in Portland? Don't know what date...I guess whatever date is recorded... Or was Portland the one with the fight?
  10. This is cute. http://blogs.myspace.com/index...484&blogID=496072213 Hello dear children of fathers, and fathers of children, and all others, of course, too... Hi and Happy Father's day! First of all, thank you so much to everyone who came to the Beacon theater, that night was so amazingly happy... Then after, i saw so many people from my life- tons of friends and family and some people i hadn't seen in years, and of course, tons of you whom i don't know, but get to play to, anyway... that always amazes me... Who are ya? How can you be there if i don't know you... hmmm... well, it's just very very cool. Thank you! Now... The record is coming out real soon. On Tuesday June 23rd. And Today is Sunday the 21st. Holy mother of father's day! I can't believe it's happening right soon like that... yeah, i know it's not the most poetic way to write, but i am just too happy to be poetic. Sometimes it's just "FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! WOW!!!" I am about to go on a Europa & UK tour, playing my own shows and festivals. My good friend Reggie Watts will be opening, and he is awesome! I'm gonna have Dan on cello, K on violin, and McKenzie on drums! So cool! Right before that I will do Good morning America (super early- on Tues, June 23rd!!!it's an unnatural time to sing, people... but everyone on that show is so nice! if i had to work that early, everyday, i would probably be evil...) Beth on viola and Yoed on 2nd cello (cello power!!!) will join in on TV... And i'm recording the David Letterman show on Monday, June 22nd. But it will be aired on Friday, June 26th... Ahh, the magicals of TV land. So- I know on Tuesday my record will come out in some different ways, and though i may be a bit confused myself (and reserve the right to type accidental bull shit) i will try to clarify so you can make decisions... Far (regular- physical copy-means you can hold it:-)- this is an all cardboard folded sleeve with a CD with 13 songs on it. It has production notes and thank yous right on the sleeve, but no lyrics booklet. Far (special edition- physical copy ) This is also an all cardboard sleeve- but double- it has a CD with 15 songs on it. 13 that are the record and 2 bonus songs (Time is All Around, and The Sword & the Pen) And a DVD disk with 4 videos on it (Laughing With, Eet, Dance Anthem of the 80's, and Man of a thousand faces) It also has lyrics in it, and pretty pictures drawn next to the lyrics. It is also all cardboard. Yeah! Far (fan edition- physical copy- stupid title, i know... ) It is the same as the special edition with 15 songs, and 4 videos and a lyrics booklet, but also gets sent with a limited edition numbered lithograph. This one can only be ordered direct from my website. Far (regular iTunes) This is the 13 songs record, plus a bonus song. Riot Gear is the bonus song Far (special edition iTunes) it is the 13 songs from regular, 2 bonus songs (Time is All Around, The Sword &the Pen) and 4 videos, plus Riot Gear. There. That was easy. Nothing to it. Cause we live in a complicated world. If you really want to see how complicated, go to TED.com Or look at that nanotechnology clip from 60minutes. Or look into your own eyes. Happy Fathers Day! paternally yours, reg p.s. we have only begun posting dates for the fall tour, so there will be tons more in America, and a possible return to Europe for a couple of weeks somewhere in there too...!!! then more of the world in the winter and spring! can't wait!!!

  12. Ugh, so I'm trying really hard to abstain from listening to any of the new new songs, and I think I've been good. But I downloaded the Beacon show just to listen to a couple of old songs live and newly arranged. And I accidentally listened to the beginning of The Calculation...and I couldn't stop. I ended up listening to it about 7 times before I was like, "AGGGGGH. My virginity...is...no more." ): But I'm still trying, haha.
  13. I fail to see why they had to be shared at all. But... Things without all remedy should be without regard: what's done, is done. It was done with twisted logic, and it's blown up in the faces of those involved, so...I don't think anything can be said to comfort anyone, on either side, anymore. Not telling you to stop, it's interesting to read. But people are hurt and extra-sensitive, so I think it's therefore unfixable at THIS moment in time. done.
  14. I think that if you have to keep it a secret, then it's a shameful act no matter which way you spin it. And...I think Regina would see it that way, too.
  15. Except you have good dumb moments in every thread...especially the ones with any importance.
