^^I saw that, and it was great! There are also some really good ones for Adele. I was disappointed that they didn't include the fact that she had to fly to the UK with blue stuff left all over her face.

Sorry I couldn't find it anywhere else. You probably already know most of the information it shared...

But I wrote down the little pop up facts from the video for you, since I had nothing better to do. haha.

*Regina Ilyinichna Spektor.

*Grew up in Soviet Russia.

*Speaks Russian, English, and Hebrew.

*She started classical piano lessons at age 6.

*Her family emigrated to The Bronx when she was 9.

*She had to leave her piano behind.

*She still played on tabletops and windowsills.

*Until she found a piano in the basement of a local synagogue.

*The she could practice her “pa-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-arts”.

*Points to mannequin: “Pain in the ass.”

*The art department had a hard time getting the mannequin to pose.

*They spent 2 days “trying to give a guy with no head a personality”.

*Regina doesn’t own a TV, watch the news or read a paper.

*She doesn’t want to get “overwhelmed by the world”.

*In 2009, she was named one of the Top 50 celebrity tweeters.

*Even though she didn’t have a twitter account.

*So she made a ca-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-all.

*An imposter was tweeting using her name.

*He was having a blast.

*Regina based this song on John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity.

*Scoot also starred in Death Cab for Cutie’s first video.

*The director asked Scoot to be in this video for a very good reason.

*He knew he’d fit in the mannequin’s clothes.

*The powders are colorful spices from Chinatown.

Jamie R. also mentioned that she has to fly back to the UK with blue stuff all over her face. I didn't know that!

Oy, i can't believe i forgot already. I found the image through stumbleupon (am i the only person who still uses this site? lol), and there was some info about it in the header, but once i pulled the image up without stumbleupon, that info (including location) was gone..

I'll go search around and see if i can find it again!

EDIT: Hmmmm, i seem to be mistaken. Sorry about that! I'm not very savy, so i don't know how to find more info than is fairly readily available. Frowner
