    She was absolutely FLAWLESS at this show. I always thought she was an incredible performer, but she has actually gotten even better. It's weird. I wouldn't think it possible. And she was not only flawless, but also warm and gracious (as always, I guess). Some idiotic drunk girls in front of us almost ruined the experience for me... They sang along LOUDLY & badly, the entire time and they stood up and danced for most of the show. And it's not like I had anything against them having a good time, but they were not respectful of anyone else whose idea of a good time didn't match their idea. Ugh. It was still an awesome show though. As I love the Greek, and Regina's performance was so overwhelmingly awesome that it mostly overshadowed the stupid people. But I am still slightly disappointed that Regina's shows have turned into "Regina's Greatest Hits Live". I miss the days when she would play non-album, unreleased tracks. Eh, oh well.
  2. Regina KCRW Los Angeles Show- Free Tickets

    I feel so goddamn lucky to have been there. And I've never considered myself lucky (until I met an awesome guy named Nathaniel - and he married me!). I guess my luck has changed! I was not even 6 feet away from her during this show. No one was in front of me. This was my 5th time seeing Regina live and it was the 1st time that I actually heard her voice. I mean, really heard it! She wouldn't have had to sing in a microphone for me to hear her beautiful voice. During the interview portion she was about 3 feet away. Haha! I mean like, right in front of me. If I were to stretch out my arm, I would have touched her. Since I was right in front of her, grinning like an idiot the whole time, at the end of the interview I had the ultimate moment. For 30 seconds she looked at me and she smiled (and I didn't stop smiling the ENTIRE time!!!). I could have died a happy woman that night. SOOOOOO AMAZING!!!! I have to thank the original poster for this again. And thanking isn't really enough. Nothing will top that. Ever.

    SOOOOOO excited about (later tonight, really) tomorrow!!!! I still can't believe that I scored 2ND ROW ORCHESTRA PIT tickets!!!!! I've never seen her this close at a seated show. And I haven't seen her since the first round of the "Far" tour...so it's been a while. I'm bringing my mopey husband along. I can't let him ruin how excited I am (remember, he says that he can't stand her - but he sings her songs when I'm not even playing the music!!! Liar!!! lol!) If anyone wants to say hello to me, let me know where to meet you at the greek

    Um, Regina at the Greek?!?!? YESSSS!!! This is one of my favorite venues! I think any seat is a good seat (although I've never been further than halfway back). I have to go! And I'll bring my hubby too. He says he doesn't like Regina - but he's in denial. He'll be a fan after that night!

    Thanks you guys. I'm so lucky to belong to this beautiful Reg community and to be supported by you beautiful people! I'm getting all misty eyed. I'll be doing some more Regina covers in my boyfriend's living room. Coming soon! Stay tuned! Haha. EDIT: You know, I've never listened to "Ave Maria"! I'm curious as to what you're talking about now.

I think the smartest thing to do is to make sure that his avoidance of you is intentional, and not jump to conclusions. If he definitely has a problem with you being in a relationship, then i guess all you can do is get the work from him and split. You're a very talented artist, so i'm sure you won't have any trouble finding someone to replace him. Good luck! Yeah, that's what I planned to do. I wrote him an email that was friendly and normal, just asking for the files and if he keeps ignoring me, I'm pretty sure it's intentional. All I wanted is to get the stuff I needed and split. He wants to be a big baby about everything so he can just do that...and you're right, I can find other people to work with (I also wasn't planning on working with him again! No way!). Thanks for that, really. quote: Originally posted by baby jesus: And OMG an Instrumental Seasons. I would love to her that! Hehe. It's mainly for song libraries...I'm trying to join a few of them, you know, to get my music into Films and T.V. shows! They usually want 2 versions of the songs, 1 normal version with vocals and one instrumental version. But if you guys want to hear some of them, I'd be happy to share once I finally get them!

    Someone else removed me from Facebook very soon after I changed my relationship status!!!! This time it was my sound engineer/co-producer for "Seasons"! I really do believe it's what you guys said about men being jerkfaces and still thinking they had a chance with me. Bryan didn't have a girlfriend (to my knowledge) but I have a feeling he kept holding on to the fact that maybe he and I would get together (I regrettably crossed the line with him while we were working together - lesson learned!). And I still need the instrumental versions of "Seasons" from him and he's ignoring all my requests and messages. I don't want to have to bring legal action against him! Why does this have to be so messy?!?!? I know it's partly my fault, but he was never exactly super professional to begin with. %^#&**)+_(%@!!@%$%!!!!!!

Technical issue? I really wish it were that simple. If only things could be that simple! I doubt it is though... I think he is just a jerkface, like you said.
