General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Re: Is Vanessa 'dark' again?

Good lord I hope so! I miss Dark V!

There is a huge following of vinyl happening now, and there are a lot of indie artists releasing only on Vinyl, and all new records come with a download card for the Mp3.
I think it will be awesome to have V on Vinyl!

I would like to see something whimsical and magical, I've always dreamed of seeing a cover with V in a velvet medieval gown with a candle and in a castle, really dark and mysterious.
Or I'd like to see her standing in a meadow at dusk. Because EVERYTHING happens in a meadow at dusk. ;)

Most Favorite Single: Pretty Baby (that song pulls at my heart strings)
Least Favorite Single: I don't know that I have one! V has made great single choices.

Favorite Video: White Houses/ Nolita Fairytale
Least Favorite: Hands on Me/ Ordinary Day (I liked bits of HoM but can't seem to enjoy Ordinary Day, it's too "manufactured" feeling.)

Welcome!!! Always a thrill to meet another Nessaholic!

I don't like it as much as Tall Tales, but I do like the seemingly Alice-ish reference!
I am very happy to hear from V, too!

WOW! This is my first year on, but I bought BnN shortly after release and had listened to ATM since it's release, so I am in shock that it has been 8 years of life with V providing the soundtrack!

I'm so anxious that I do my best not to think about it anymore. I just dream that someday soon I'll loggon here and see an oficial release news including cover, tracklist and of course, the so talked about release date!

I am in the same boat as you! But since that is exactly how I've found each new release of V's I am always at peace and just work on patience, knowing V will let us all know when she is ready!   :D

Peace, Love, and Happiness.   :D
Everything is love and love is everything.
I meant nothing personal in what I said, I was being general, I was just saying if I was in V's shoes, I would be reclusive too.

Why is everyone on these boards so quick to blame anyone BUT Vanessa?  Artists loose steam..its happening to tons of artists...I think her long dissapearances say A LOT about the kind of artist she is.  They gave her radio/tv spots/commercials/2 music videos...what else are they/irv/inc/universal supposed to do?  the album had lackluster my opinion because the first single was DULL & unrelatible unless you were Nessa or Lord Victor. It's not logical for a record company to keep putting $$$ into an artist/album if theres nothing coming back!!   Irv let her make the album HER WAY!  Why is everyone bashing him/the label?  They did more for her than A&M did w/ Harmonium!!  I think they did enough for her..I think it's time for V to step up her game a little bit.  If she doesn't do a film score soon....I can see her disapearing off the face of the planet.

I know shes always been a very private person but do you guys feel like 'ego' has gotten ahold of her?  I read all her posts from 2002-2006 and she was so happy & different...i know she has grown up a lot since then but REALLY?  All her posts now are VERY spaced out and....

I'm gonna stop before people hate me even more than they already do.
I'm just tired of everyone pointing the finger on these's nobodys fault but V's...i support TONS of indie artists who would KILL to have had the exposure V had w/ h&t.....yet they still manage to stay in contact w/ there fans/myspace/online stores/communities/etc.

I don't know what you mean by "he let her do the album HER way." He didn't. Even if she says that, you can hear the difference between H&T and the other albums -- it's more plastic, it's more commercial, it's mediocre, and it's jut not her.

However, you're right about her at least somewhat. You can't know why she does the things she does and I have a feeling there is a deeper issue than just simply her "ego." Her sister said to me once something which made this clear to me.

Gwen told me once that V didn't even see her family for nearly a year, choosing to stay reclusive in her apartment. I'm sorry, but if that screams "ego" then please tell me how. It screams, "mental illness" to me. There are other things she's said/done in public that point to that as well. It's just that we simply can't know what's going on inside her head and my guess would be that for whatever reason, she's in a mental state of emotional distress quite often and has a hard time maintaining relationships and contact with not only her fans, but also the people in her life. I haven't spoken to gwen since; I don't think she wants to talk to her sister's fans anyway, and I can understand that. So I don't know anything else other than the episode of reclusiveness. I just know that none of us can even begin to understand why she is the way she is. We can't because we don't know her.
What you are saying makes a lot of sense. It definitely is NOT ego, what you say Gwen said sounds a lot like my friend. He's a classical musician/composer and he shuts himself off from friends whenever he goes through a "rough patch"; I think V is like that, I've always felt that. When you are an artistic person you have an altered sense of emotion and it effects you much more heavily than non-artistic people. I am that way and any highly intelligent/ musically inclined people I know are like that.
I think she probably gets scared, too. Fans can be crazy, and I know I would be scared in that position.

They have actually had many celebs with ballet backgrounds on DWTS. V could do it. Sabrina Bryant has a hip-hop/jazz background, Melissa Rycroft was a ballet dancer and pro. cheerleader. So her ballet training wouldn't inhibit her. I would be more worried about the fact that now it's only has-beens and reality stars. No one current.

It is really hard to promote your art, no matter what kind. I am confidante V will tell us when she needs to. I believe she has never announced a release more than 2 months before and on average I think I usually was fairly worried about her lack of info and then read the announcement and got pretty excited!   :D
Anyway, I know V is hard at work.

I guess I'll get in on this fun.

V, we all love you. I am really looking forward to this next album. Thanks for all you give to us.
