• Regina Spektor – Fidelity

    24 Dec 2012, 02:56 by B3t0v

    I never loved nobody fully
    Always one foot on the ground
    And by protecting my heart truly
    I got lost in the sounds

    I hear in my mind all of these voices
    I hear in my mind all of these words
    I hear in my mind all of this music

    And it breaks my heart
    And it breaks my heart
    And it breaks my heart
    When it breaks my heart

    And suppose I never ever met you
    Suppose we never fell in love
    Suppose I never ever let you
    Kiss me so sweet and so soft

    Suppose I never ever saw you
    Suppose we never ever called
    Suppose I kept on singing love songs
    Just to break my own fall

    Just to break my fall
    Just to break my fall
    Just to break my fall
    Break my fall
    Break my fall

    All my friends say that of course
    It's gonna get better
    Gonna get better
    Better better better better
    Better better better!

    I never love nobody fully
    Always one foot on the ground
    And by protecting my heart truly
    I got lost in the sounds

    I hear in my mind all of these voices

    Sun 22 Jul – Regina Spektor (Special Guest: Only Son)

    It was a flawless show. Regina's is such a pro and her voice is getting more powerful with each year.

    She played the new album almost in its entirety (minus Jessica, of course) and sprinkled it generously with songs from Far, Begin to Hope and even Soviet Kitsch, but Ain't no Cover as the opening song was the real (and only) surprise of the evening. My favourites were All the Rowboats, Blue Lips, Eet, Open, Us. She played from 9 pm to 10.45 pm and it seemed way too short.
    During the first part of the show I thought I saw her teal guitar onstage and got all giddy ("OMG, will there be Bobbing for Apples? Or another reaaally old song of hers??! Woohooo! XDDD"), but either it was me hallucinating or she decided she wasn't in a guitar-y mood and had it removed. Or it might have been Only Son's guitar and he took it with him after the duet. Will we ever find out ? *ominous music*

    I am the gentle autumn rain

    Of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there; I did not die'

    Sat 16 Oct – Festival Corona Capital

    La palabra festival se deriva del latin festivus (y otras tantas etimologías, sobre las cuales no planeo abundar en este momento) que significa (redundantemente) festivo o alegre. Ergo, un festival es cualquier celebración de un conjunto humano con una razón en común. Existen seres pretenciosos en este mundo que dicen que el Festival Corona Capital no es de ningún modo un festival, por la falta de días, falta de lugares para acampar, y un sinnúmero de explicaciones que, a ciencia cierta, no definen al festival en sí. Etimológicamente, el festival es la celebración, no las circunstancias alrededor del mismo.

    En resumen, señor: su definición de festival me la paso por los güebos, me los limpio, me los lavo, y el agua se la guardo para que haga gárgaras con ella.

    Para mí es difícil hacer una crónica de un festival sin los elementos que llevan al mismo: Es como contar una historia a medias. Así que se aguantan a la verga y leen mi pinchi historia detrás de las risas primero. >: [

    It's been a few years since I did this the last time, and my tastes have changed a lot, so I thought I'd give this another try. Since I reset my charts last fall, there isn't much variety yet, so maybe I'll try one more time in the future :D

    Without looking at the questions below, list your top 10 favorite artists according to

    01. Mute Math
    02. The Killers
    03. Glee Cast... :P
    04. Coldplay
    05. The Shins
    06. The Hush Sound
    07. Incubus (actually Mahito Yokota, but that's boring... so I'm skipping it.)
    08. Mates of State
    09. Muse
    10.Stars, Snow Patrol, and Arcade Fire are tied. So... I don't know how I'm going to do this. Oh well! I'll figure something out.

    Answer the following questions.

    Q: What was the first song you ever heard by #2?
    A: Mr. Brightside! Still a favorite.

    Q: What is your favorite album of #6?
    A: Oh man... I don't know. I think their most recent one, Goodbye Blues, but they're all fantastic! So mad that they're "on hiatus." Sucks.
  • meowth! that's right.

But you cannot safely say, while I will be away, that you will not consider sadly how you helped me to stray. You will not reach me. I am resenting a position that is past resentment, and now I can't consider. And now there is this distance.
