lol That article is completely snarky and poking fun at the fact that Vanessa lives a fairly comfortable life and is able to make trips to Egypt when average American's barely afford the gas it takes to bring them to the supermarket.

Completely Off-Topic / ...okay.

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Reverse song: White Houses
« on: June 16, 2008, 08:12:18 pm »
Someone reversed Vanessa's performance of Hands On Me at the US Open and it sounds pretty neat. It's very ethereal backwards, I guess, if you wanted to describe it somehow. But at one point she sounds like she's screaming, "Something something LISA! Something something LISA!" lol

Here it is -

I will be at the Middle East show in Boston.  :)

Her next album better have a better balance in terms of mood and feel, it feels lopsided. H&T is overly bright for my tastes, I mean, whistling during Fools Like Me? lol Ok.

Harmonium will be very hard to top imo.

This single is stuck in fucking limbo. Wth.

She used to be so pitchy before she had vocal lessons when working on Harmonium. I'd forgotten. lol

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa's third video music?

Yeah, there's a slim chance of seeing a third single at this point.

The next thing we'll be seeing from Vanessa is a stationary line.

I hate PETA, omg. That organization is vile. They kill more animals than they save.

um... WHY would they only have those two songs on the site? how stupid

if they wanted to slim it down for time purposes, they should have done the current single (Hands on Me) and ATM since everyone knows it.... not two songs from her sophomore record that we've seen her perform a hundred times

They are from her debut album.

So? They're not relevant for NOW.

But it's what people know so that's why they put it up. *Shrugs* C'est la vie.

Yuck, Bacon Chocolate!? I've never even heard of it. Does it taste as bad as it sounds?

Well, bacon is pretty salty, and chocolate is sweet... and sweet and salty things make fabulous combinations. In Sweden they have a specialty of chocolate covered boiled eggs. It sounds really gross, yes, but... it tastes awesome. lol

It's sad. She should sign on a more mainstream label.

You don't get much more mainstream than Murder Inc. lol

If things continue the way they are, I wouldn't be surprised to see Vanessa go the route of Hanson sometime in the future - which involves forming her own independant label and getting distribution deals with major record labels for future record releases.

Which isn't an easily treaded path by any means, she'd have to rely on extensive touring as a source of income, but I don't see Vanessa comprimising any of her artistic integrity for the sake of sales.

Who knows, maybe Irv will keep her on board regardless of her sales? lol

This isn't a guy. It's just the studio original version in a lower tone. So... fake.

Rude much?

The lack of inflection that the internet gives no tone of being rude or not... I don't think he/she was trying to be rude... Just informative.

Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. I never put emoticons and I'm not very expressive. It's just I think it's Nessa's version computerly modified. If you change the tone with any program as Audacity you'll get the Harmonium original version.
And by the way, it's 'he' and not 'she'. Maag is made by my name initials.

That "Bye!" you keep using at the end of your posts comes across as condescending and dismissive.

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa Kiwibox Interview

Her response in regards to Irv was interesting, in the past her eyes would always light up and she'd gush over the connection she made with him, etc. And this time we get, "Irv... um... hrm... he's... yeaaahhh... um, erm, he's great. Yeah. *Forced smile*" There's a lot to read in between the lines with this interview, especially when she distanced herself from the Murder Inc. name by referring to it as an "imprint of Universal", which is true, but her choice of words was odd.

And wtf at her appearance, I don't care if you're doing an interview for a middle school news program run by 12 year olds, PUT A FUCKING COMB THROUGH YOUR HAIR BEFORE YOU GO ON CAMERA.

I feel pretty bad for the interviewer, granted she sucked - but Vanessa wasn't helping to make the circumstances any less awkward, Vanessa can be a bitch from time to time but goddamn. lol Someone took their carnation instant bitch that morning.

I did notice how she said "Yeh... he's cool" while referring to Irv, which is a big change from the used-to-be norm... I wonder what happened.

Well, I'm not surprised. With the Hands On Me video we got a low budget video (albiet with great editing), that focused on Vanessa squirming in a bed with shots of her crotch and being undressed. Granted this approach may have been the brain child of Marc and Vanessa, but it was an obvious attempt to draw attention through sex appeal, which is something we haven't seen from her before.

And after Vanessa put herself in that position, which I'm sure involved Irv's input, what has the result been? It hasn't paid off, because the Inc. isn't putting any muscle behind her. At this point I highly doubt we'll see a third single, I mean, there was a disconcerting tone with Vanessa about even TOURING in the summer, there was a hint of uncertainty and frustration that was really obvious when she discussed it. If we may not even get a tour, what's going to make us think anything else is going to be done with this record? H&T hasn't sold well enough to garner further promotion efforts (Even though ironically there hasn't been much in terms of promotion to begin with).

This is Harmonium all over again. And it's obvious Vanessa's attention has been focused not on her music but on other things as of late since she's mentioning other art projects and fucking stationary. And I wonder whyyy, it's because the Inc's dropped the ball.

But the Inc's in a tight situation, Irv's comeback hasn't gone as smoothly as people there would've liked I'm sure, and as a result of that Vanessa's been lost among the tides of the label's struggle. Heh. Ultimately I think Vanessa made a poor decision in getting involved with a struggling label that has other priorities besides her. And it doesn't help that she's signed on to a HIP-HOP label who's marketing team has no idea how to market Vanessa since they're accustomed to marketing rap and r&b artists, these people know the ropes and are extremely familiar with one specific genre and scene, and Vanessa doesn't fit into that. I mean, these people got her a major spread on GIANT magazine, which is cool and all, but that magazine caters towards a more urban market. What about SPIN, or Rolling Stone, you know, marketing her towards a demographic that's more apt to pick up on her music. No, we get GIANT fucking magazine.

Anyways, sorry for all the edits, but I kept thinking of things to say after I edited my post each time, lol.

This is a question im not attacking you but are you implying that Irv is trying to get Vanessa to kind of sell out with the sex appeal thing? Also H&T is kind of a flop agreed (becuase it didnt get the promotion)?

Why does using sex appeal constitute as selling out. Sex is used to sell everything, even the fucking shampoo you put in your hair. Suggesting that Irv had a hand in using a different marketing approach is different from saying he forced Vanessa to "sell out". :/

As i said im not attaking you so calm down i just didnt know what you were implying.

lol I'm calm. I'm not swearing at you, I just have a habit of swearing to emphasize my point. I'm trashy like that.
