and to break the in America rule:
Montreal Canada

Montreal's a cool city!  I visited that city twice in October!   :)  

Quote from: "BWilli" should all move yo Brick, New's the safest town in the U.S

LOL... even safer than Watts or Compton in the LA metropolitan area?  j/k!  Actually I've been to NYC a couple of times this year and stayed in northern NJ both times.  While there are some pretty nasty slums (like in and around Newark, East Orange and Irvington) most of it isn't nearly as bad as what people stereotype it to be.  Both Carlstadt (where I stayed)... plus neighboring East Rutherford (both are cities near the Meadowlands Sports Complex) seem like perfectly alright areas (only a 15 minute bus ride to NYC too)... and unlike in Manhattan you can park your car at the hotel for free and hotel rooms are about 1/3 of the cost too.  

I've noticed so many people have San Francisco in their top 10!  But as nice a city as it is... there's something about the southern Cali climate, as well as the way of life that I love.   :D

*imagines Nessaholic pilgrimage to San Francisco*

we'd all be singing

we're back, we're back in San Francisco... we're back and you tell me I am home

We could even have our own little Nessaholic ghetto lol

LOL that's funny Nerea... I was thinking of that song when I posted the results!   :D

To address the few of you that this thread seemingly offended... as Colin correctly pointed out, I only put it there because the website only reports on American cities/metropolitan areas.  If I had other sites to report on that covered other countries I wouldn't have put "in America."  But since Sperling's Best Places covers American cities, and this thread is about Sperling's website and the results it gives you, I put that in the heading for the sake of providing an accurate description of the thread.  Sheesh!!  :?  But no worries... it's all good.   :)  

And thank you Colin, Let and everyone else who took the time to share their results!    And it's true... I'm not from the USA either!  :D

I don't know if any of you have ever run across Sperling's Best Places website:

It's a great website where you can obtain neighborhood profiles by zipcode and compare cities as well (they only feature American cities and metropolitan areas).

There's a nifty little city chooser which tells you what would be your top 30 cities to live in within the United States, based on your importance of certain criteria (such as school, arts, traffic, crime, affordable housing, climate, jobs, etc.).

Try it yourself and share your results... and also say if the results you get agree with how you actually feel:


Here are my top 10 metropolitan areas according to the website based on selection criteria I entered:

1  San Francisco, CA
2  Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA
3  Long Island, NY
4  Boston, MA-NH-ME
5  San Diego, CA
6  Orange County, CA
7  San Jose, CA
8  Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA
9  Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV
10  Monmouth-Ocean, NJ

Not surprisingly, 5 of the 10 areas are in CA!  :D  I'd personally have put Orange County first, Los Angeles second and San Diego third.

So anyhoo, I like the song. The album is coming out in early '05 at the latest.

She also has a few movies coming out Gossip Girl, Lady Luck, and Herbie: Fully Loaded. There is also talks of Mean Girls 2.

If you're in NY or LA, you may catch her partying with Tara Reid and Paris Hilton.

Her debut album is entitled "Speak" and will be released in stores on Tuesday December 7, 2004! has information and a sneak-peek (listen to streaming audio samples) over here:

Her other songs "Teenage Drama Queen (That Girl)" and "I Decide" aren't going to be on that album, though.

Yeah... she always seems to be hanging out with Paris Hilton!  A friend of mine who lives in Las Vegas met her at the Palms Casino in August.  Paris Hilton was there too.

I'm really sorry, but I can't see it lol.
I'm either blind or stupid or both.

It could be your ad-blocking software.  I can't see it on my screen either.

Live Shows / Vanessa's Western Canadian Dates Are Cancelled
« on: November 17, 2004, 12:29:05 am »
That sucks... Western Canada doesn't get any Nessa love.   :(

Yeah... but what I thought was dumb was... it was an advertised item in their flyer and they didn't even have it out for sale until I asked lol!

Quote from: "tricia"
They didn't have it out at Target in Turlock either!


I had to go to Modesto to buy it. :D

I get the feeling Target doesn't like Vanessa Carlton.   :(

hmmm.  :lol:

Haha I beat you.  I think I hold the record around here... hadn't posted since June 2003 and just posted again a couple of days ago!   :D

I bought the new CD on Friday night at Target (for $9.98 plus tax)... but it was quite a challenge to get it!

It was advertised in this week's flyer but in the store I went to, there was not a single Vanessa Carlton CD to be found anywhere on the shelves... so I asked the sales rep in the music department if they had any in stock.  He went to take a look all over, then looked in his CD receiving manifest to find the inventory code... keyed it in his hand-held computer and said they had a bunch in the backroom.  

After waiting for 10-15 minutes he walked out with a whole stack of "Harmonium" CDs and then put them on display.  I guess if I never asked, days or even weeks might have gone by before they put it out for sale.  

Obviously I was the first person in that particular Target location to buy the CD, lol!   8O
