  1. REGINA, WHERE ART THOU

    One can hope!
  2. Has anyone met Regina lately after a show?

    The bus is pretty noticeable though and usually around the venue it did take some searching the first time I met her though, as it wasnt the safest part of manhattan and there was no visible tour bus. I'm assuming that it was parked somewhere further down the city. We just gathered around a door with a window where she was visibly taking with press and family. It was a 2.5 hour wait and didn't think she thought anyone would be waiting around for her. Sometimes it's worth the risk it was at the united palace show at NYC
  3. Has anyone met Regina lately after a show?

    I met her after the October third show my friend works in the music industry so he was able to get me a photo pass. During the 2nd-4th songs I was able to get in front of the stage to take photos! Ill never be able to put into words how amazing it was being within arms length of Regina while she performed. I'm getting butterflies just reliving it. So my best friend and I had floor seats so we were pretty much in front of the stage the whole time. It was a huge change for me since I was on the lower balcony for the two previous shows. After the show, we only had to wait a bit over an hour before Regina came out to meet us. I thought I'd be cooler meeting her the second time, but I was still a mess haha. The biggest trip was that she remembered me! I showed her the now half faded signature she left me on my iPad and she laughed and signed my poster I even showed her the latest piece I made of her and she liked it! She was as beautiful as ever and I'm glad I got to meet her again, along with having my friend that introduced me to her music in the first place. He was only able to mutter "I love all your songs.. So cool" and squealed like a little girl waking up in a lifelike barbie playhouse as we walked away. Here's the piece I made for/showed her that night:

    Getting hugs from regi is like being born again. I can't even describe it. When I met her I couldn't form full sentence either, or half a sentence at that haha. I literally o mute and have to force the words out. About the shortness, I'm only about 5'4 and I was noticibly taller than her.

GOSH SHE's so cute!! *o* She is indeed adorable! Wanting to put her in your pocket kind of adorable. And she's pretty short too, which just adds to t adorable factor <3

    In the ny show at the united palace I think the bus was elsewhere and she was driven there. I saw jack loading his amp and guitar in a car as opposed to the equipment truck. depends on the venue I guess, just figure out where she's coming out. Don't be afraid to ask her band mates; her drummer us super nice. By the time you make it out of the show, there'll be a group that already knows her exit so just stick around there and make friends

    Initiall, about 30 people or so waited for her, but when she finally came out only about 10 of us were left. She's always nice. Extremely dedicated to her fans.
  9. Has anyone met Regina lately after a show?

    I have a lengthy description in another thread, but long story short, I met her at her last general audience show in NYC back in may. Still the greatest moment in my life <3 I had to wait, along with others, for about 2.5 hours before she came out to meet us. It's not definite, but if she notices that there are fans waiting to meet her shell come out most of the time, a high chance from what I've heard. She's just too sweet, but her security guard(s) are douche bags and try to rush her back to her bus. He was like "she can't get picture with all of you so get in while you can". FYI, she made it to each and every one of us
  10. 2012 Fall Tour

    Kinda worried that the beacon theatre NYC show isn't listed for sale yet anyone know what's going on for that? I'm still waiting for my new credit card to come in. Hopefully it's the presale that's coming in for 8/7, that way I'll at least have chances for tickets
  11. Howdy! My name is Max, and I am an aspiring cartoonist. While my main form of art is cartoons, I also dabble in human portraits. I've been doing traditional paper art my whole life, but didn't learn/start to do digital art until a little over a year ago. I'm still learning, so I'm hoping I'll get better in time On a rainy day, I was listening to some Christina perri during a car ride with a buddy of mine, when he said he has something that I might enjoy more. I unplugged the mp3 cable from my iPhone, he plugged it into his, before long I was trapped in a sort of daze... Never before had I heard a sound so different then what Ive become accustomed to. Two Birds was soothing the car and consuming my every thought. After the 10th or so replay of the song, On the Radio played. At this point I became so addicted to her voice and finally asked who the artist was. Regina Regina Regina, how I love you so! After the second song I was just sold. I purchased two birds and on the radio after the song finished and fell asleep listening to both. The next day I came across Eet, which is now on my top 5 songs, and fell even more in love and payed homage to it by making a painting of it (they're coming up I promise). Throughout that first week, I purchased songs from Far and Begin To Hope separately before I was convinced to buy the deluxe album versions of both (which was really after I listened to Samson haha). On a bus ride back from school, I decided to download Soviet Kitsch. At first, it didn't sit well with me, but it really grew on me and became my favorite album. The few friends that listen or know of Regina, have only listened to her from her involvement in the soundtrack for 500 days of summer, and never explored her music past that. It saddened me deeply, so I decided to use my talents to make my facebook friends aware of her, as well as friends I've made on other forums that I frequent (video game, art forums etc.) on their "off topic section. I've created quite a diverse fan base through these digital pieces of her. But back to 500 days, after seeing that movie and how Regina's songs were tied in, I loved her even more. I loved how the opening of the movie was Us, with Hero being used in the darkest part of the movie. It was just pure genius and made me feel like Regina had a part in that herself (besides contributing the song of course). How excited was I when I saw that the first single of the upcoming album was released? Overjoyed. I absolutely in love with the album version of All the Rowboats. I'm so looking forward to this whole album After listening to the majority of her music, I started looking into the YouTube videos that are up of her performances. My god, I fell in love all over again. After that I purchased her Live in London concert movie and loved her even more, then purchased her music videos. I dreamed of seeing her live. I jumped for joy when I saw her Facebook announcement of her upcoming album and tour. I missed her HIAS benefit and was absolutely crushed. I was late to getting tickets so I couldn't afford the late tickets. The presale to her NJ concert; missed that too. But I ended up getting tickets Friday they're lower balcony seats (orchestra sold out within seconds) and my buddy that introduced this beautiful human to me is coming along too, but sadly he's in the center lower balcony and I'm on the right . I just can't believe I'll be in the same room as Regina. After buying the tickets, I swear I was shaking hours after that. This will be my first concert ever and will be even more memorable since its of my all time favorite artist. Alright, I really meant to do a short bio of a few sentences, but once I started on about Regina I couldn't stop till now haha. I even planned on going further but I caught myself. The following paintings were done on my iPhone and iPad. I will add which device was used for each over the corresponding picture. This one was the first one I did (i think). It was created on my phone, then touched up on my iPad. This one was done on my phone in a moving bus on my way home from school iPhone This next one was based off her concert movie and was the last creation I made of her on my phone (I purchased my own iPad after that, I'd used my brothers iPad prior to that. This one and the ones posted before this were done with my index finger) This next one was based of the song Time is All Around. The leaves based on the chorus and the time around her based on the title This was the most annoying painting I've done. It wasn't done very good, but I still like it This next one was based off The Survival Guide To Soviet Kitsch. I love that film short to death. It really showed how adorable Regina is, as well as showcase her creativity. The way the video went from upbeat to dark by the time Ode to Devorce came on really captured me. This next one was created on the last hours of new years eve, stopped to make a new years toast to my friends to bring in the new year, picked up the iPad and sat back down on the couch, finished it, then had a few drinks to it This one actually pays homage to two of my favorite songs. The sleeping Regina came from a still for the alternate version of the On the Radio music video (the one with Regina in the chocolate factory), the lyrics from Dance Anthem of the 80's and the hand/tree from the video of that song. Alright, this last one is my favorite out of all of them. It was my most intense piece and also took me the longest time. The video for Eet was just absolutely beautiful and is my favorite (next to the videos for Fidelity and Us) so I had this next painting portray my love for it I decided to do this after listening to the new single ne me quitte pas. I listened to it on repeat during the entirity of this piece So thats it For now! Thank you all for taking the time to read my lengthy thread intro and for viewing my art gallery! This was also an introduction thread and I look forward to interacting with people as crazy about Regina as I am! My friends think I'm obsessed . Now excuse me as I listen to No surprises Cheers! -Red

    I had NO idea what the fuck was going on, but anytime Regina had lines, none of it mattered. She's flawless in anything she does. I was just overjoyed seeing her in anything period.

  21. 2012-06-05 Secret NYC Show

    Looks like I'm really not going. Congrats to whoever got in. Watching on YouTube isn't anywhere near the same as being there. The NPR stream was choppy for me, so I can't imagine how it'll be on YouTube. You're so cruel, universe .
  22. 2012-06-05 Secret NYC Show

    Still no email. Severely depressed now. I'm going to just... Go on hiatus from the world for a while now... Congrats to whoever got in though :'/
  23. Live Broadcast (NPR) on May 31st, 2012

    It was awesomeeee it pissed me off though that the ones, very lucky ones might I add, that were being rude and talking loudly to the point of Regina stopping during Ballad of a Politician to call it out. Sure she said it jokingly, but that was just rude.
  24. Live Broadcast (NPR) on May 31st, 2012
