  1. Regina posted this on her Instagram yesterday! Another dad shot.
  2. Hey I dreamt about Regina!

    I post in this thread way too much. Last night I dreamt Regina was having a concert in this tiny auditorium, and she was fucking up "All the Rowboats" pretty bad. I remember thinking that she must be burnt out after having played it so much on tour and TV. Reginaaa!
  3. Hey I dreamt about Regina!

    I had the best Regina dream last night! In my building there's a lounge in the basement with a digital grand piano and Regina was down there, recording a song with some guy I didn't know. I was ecstatic and asked to get a picture with her. We took a serious one, and then one where we made stupid faces. It was amazing. Although afterwards the pictures disappeared from the guy's phone we had to use for the pictures, so I couldn't email them to myself. I also flew in the dream, so it was pretty awesome.

    Holy crap. I've AAALWAYS overlooked this song...not sure why! But I just had my first real moment with it. I listened to it while reading the lyrics and I just connected with it. I have no idea if I'm making it up, but she sounds like she's emulating Billie Holiday when she sings certain parts of the song...especially the little wet tears line. SOOOOOOOOOOOO good. I'm so glad Regina is still surprising me, four years on... Lady sing the blues so well As if she mean it As if it's hell down here In the smoke-filled world Where the jokes are cold, they don't laugh at jokes They laugh at tragedies Corner street societies But they believe her They never leave her while she sings She make them feel safe She says, 'I can sing this song so blue That you will cry in spite of you Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder And I have walked these streets so long There ain't nothin' right, there ain't nothin' wrong But the little wet tears on my baby's shoulder Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder.' Lady lights a cigarette, puffs away, no regrets Takes a look around, no regrets, no regrets Stretches out like branches of a poplar tree Says, 'I am free;' sings so soft as if she'll break Says, 'I can sing this song so blue That you will cry in spite of you Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder And I have walked these streets so long There ain't nothin' right, nothin' wrong But the little wet tears on my baby's shoulder Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder But on this stage I've learned to fly Learned to sing and learned to cry Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder But now it's time to say goodbye Some might laugh, but I will surely cry Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder.' Lady lights a cigarette Puffs away And winter comes And she Forgets
  5. Hey I dreamt about Regina!

    Double posting, but oh well... I had a dream that she was announcing a new album, called "Well," and I remember her saying it was "hip-hop, kind of minimalist, but nothing she hasn't done before." Some of the songs were from 11:11, but they had new names! I think she played a "new song" too but I can't remember any of it...WHAT A GOOD DREAM.
  6. regina is going to be a mommy!

    I'm so excited for them! That's awesome! Also...she mentioned a new record! So maybe we will see something this year?! Ahhh!
  7. 11:11 now on sale on Ebay

    So expensive! Wish I could afford it.
  8. I think it's easier to be a casual fan of musicians like Adele, Coldplay, Jessie J...whereas with Regina, I find that you either love her or you really don't care much for her. Therefore, Regina fans would be, by nature, a far more loyal, connected, and condensed group of people. Though hardcore Regites can't be the only ones voting for her here...maybe she just needed some real solid "mainstream" exposure (via OitNB)?
  9. Damn. Regina's in the way lead! Would be cool if she won! I really hope she gets the Grammy, too...she deserves it so much.
  10. Lady

    Yeah! According to interviews, Regina is a huuuge Billie Holiday fan. I remember reading that Regina learned to sing by perfecting sing-y impressions of different vocalists, and I'm pretty sure Billie was one of them. Also, I think Billie Holiday was even called "Lady" sometimes? So, yeah! I think it's definitely Billie Holiday related and I'd thought that for awhile -- I'd just never listened to the song closely enough to hear the Billie Holidayness in some of the lines. Also, the line about poplar trees seems like a reference to Holiday's "Strange Fruit," one of the lines being "Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees." Edit Oh! Looks like one of Holiday's last albums is called "Lady Sings the Blues," too!
  11. Upcoming Gig dates?

    Hey there Hoogo! Welcome to the 'stix. Nothing official has been announced, but a few here have speculated she might go on a spring tour this year...here's hoping! There's also the various mentions of a new record in 2014, which, while not substantiated by Regina, would most definitely result in a tour.
  12. pictures and videos of interest...

    Hahaha. Regina the microphone eater. Awesome.
  13. That's really cool! Love the Eiffel Tower in the backround -- Paris in the rain!
  14. Hey dudes! Regina just posted about this on Facebook, and I thought you'd all like to know! She just got her online store back up and running. Here's the link... http://www.reginaspektor.bigcartel.com/ Looks like it's just tour stuff at the moment. I like the piano key shirt a lot!
  15. Regina is everywhere

    That's awesome! What's it like to play a Steinway? Is there really any notable difference?
  16. That is sooo cool, legerdeman! Where did you find it? Or did you make it?!
  17. Haha! That's from Jack's video, right? It's a Boy, I think? I just found this picture -- I've never seen it before!
  18. Regina is everywhere

    That was a good read, robertaxel! This is also really old, but I'd never heard it before! I love finding new interviews.
  19. Non-reginaspektor.net or respekt.online live show recordings.

    Hey legerdemain! Can you send me a PM as well? Thank you!
  20. Regina in special NYC appearance

    Hahaha, yeah, I looking for the link to the performance again and realized that. Woops!
  21. Regina in special NYC appearance

    Okay! I said I wasn't sure. I looked it up, and it was at the Jewish Heritage Festival in NYC in 2005.
  22. Hey dudes! I was wondering if anyone had any of these recordings still? Specifically Daniel Cowman and Buildings. http://reginaspektor-net.blogspot.ru/2007/02/toast-jedediah-to-love-on-my-terms.html Thanks! - TC
  23. Old Photos from Original Website

    Yes, please post more! These are really cool! Interesting to see some sort of context thing for her show with Renate Hug...I wish someone would hurry up and post the whole thing already haha.
  24. Where can i find these Regina songs?

    Is me the she? I'm a boy. Not that it matters, really, in the grand scheme of things. Yeah, that's what I was talking about. Was it really not downloads? Ahhh! See. Okay. This makes me think that like, Stonehenge is just a joke. The Pyramids too. Hahaha.
  25. It's back! Check this link: http://www.respektonline.com/ Sometimes the URL can be screwy, which I don't get. You have to do something very specific to get to it...but it's back up! Edit Oh! I guess that is the message you get at the home page...but the Songs/Audio tabs work and everything's back up for download!
