Hi! I looked and I haven't seen any other posts on this board about it, but I was selected to see an intimate show, interview, and Q&A at the Grammy Museum tonight! Although I've been a big fan of V for 9 years, my mind is drawing a blank now that I might get the chance to ask her something.  Anything I can think of is questions about her old unreleased songs/demos. But from how she usually talks about her old work, she seems a embarrassed by it and wants to keep discussion more current.

Anyone have questions? Let me know before 7:30 PST! I'll try to get them answered! :D

Live Shows / 11/15 Largo, West Hollywood
« on: November 11, 2013, 09:39:02 pm »
I couldn't find a topic for the show yet!!

I am in quite the situation. I've never been able to attend one of V's shows before due to my location, but now that I'm studying in SoCal I've been so excited to her live (its always been one of my dreams!) I bought the ticket when it was first available, but I've had two different rides cancel on me and I'm not sure what to do.  ???  I can't drive, and I'm in Santa Clarita. Metrolink doesn't service the area when I would need to be heading back, and a taxi two ways would be $180.

If anyone is heading to see this show from north of Los Angeles please let me know. I would definitely compensate for gas, and we could chat on Skype or something prior just to know that we're both legit people. Seeing her show would mean the world to me, honestly.

Other Musicians / Sucré

Sucré is the name of Stacy Dupree King of Eisley's solo project. Though different from V, her music is very quality and I'm sure some of you would love it.

Her album's streaming for free here (but probably not for much longer):

If you only have a bit of time, I'd recommend 'When We Were Young', 'Chemical Reaction', or 'No Return'.

Let me know what you think!  :D

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa iTunes Questionnarre
« on: March 07, 2012, 05:52:33 pm »
(Forgive me if this isn't the right board! I was contemplating where to put this!)

I was looking the playcounts for my Vanessa Carlton songs on iTunes, and was surprised by a few things. Because a lot of us own and listen to the physical CDs, the numbers on our music programs can end up quite interesting. I thought I'd put together a little questionnaire to get to know each other better, look at the trends, and have some fun!

How many Vanessa Carlton songs do you have on iTunes, and what is the total play time?

107, and 6 hours, and 34 minutes. :o

Which song has the most plays (and how many)? Any reason?

'Afterglow', for me (103). I'm not certain as to why, because although I love it, it wouldn't be in my top 10 favorite songs. It beat 'She Floats' by about 10 plays, a song that I wouldn't have been so shocked at.

Which song has the least plays? Reasons behind this?

'Happy XMas (War is Over)' (6).  I really love this cover, and have played it probably over 30 times on my iPod. :D I guess iTunes isn't syncing with its counts. I hope it catches up soon; it makes me sad to see it on the bottom. Haha.

Shortest Vanessa Song?

'Just the Thing', only 00:41 seconds!


'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me', very barely beating out 'Home'

V Albums from Highest to Lowest Play Count (just eye this one and include any V categories you have that aren't actually 'albums' ;) )

Harmonium, BNN, Vanessa B-sides, Heroes and Thieves, Rinse, Vanessa Unreleased, Vanessa Alternate Live, Vanessa Covers, Tape Demo, Vanessa Piano/Vocal, Rabbits on the Run, and Hear the Bells.

Any Comments?

I was very surprised at Afterglow being my top played, as well as my favorite album, Rabbits on the Run, having so few plays! Things will probably even out as time goes on. I listened to the physical CD of Harmonium more than anything, so the amount of plays it had on iTunes in addition, slightly frightens me.  :D

What about everyone else? I'm curious to hear your answers!

Hey everyone. I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but I feel this is the most appropriate section. :D Hopefully everyone checks this part of the board. This is a present to V and all of you, whether or not you celebrate Christmas. I was going to have this up last night, but my computer didn't want me to finish everything until this morning.


Entertainment - Movies / TV / Books / Doctor Who?
« on: September 27, 2011, 01:29:20 pm »
Any Whovians around? New Who or Old Who? I got into this show earlier this year and I really enjoyed Series 5, not liking how 6 is coming together as much.
Who's your favorite companion? What about your favorite Doctor?

I hope this is the right board to post it on... ???

Anyway, I found this piano cover on youtube and it's beautiful:

Edit: There's a Carousel cover too:

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Rank V's Albums?
« on: September 20, 2011, 04:45:50 pm »
If there's already a thread like this (I couldn't find one) feel free to delete this topic. :D

I felt like before ROTR, Harmonium was the general fan-favorite. How do you guys rank the albums now (favorite to least favorite)?

My ranking:
1. Rabbits on the Run
2. Harmonium
3. Be Not Nobody
4. Heroes and Thieves

Of course, I really love them all.  :D

I know it doesn't quite look like a dandelion. :D Took me awhile though. What do you guys think?

Other Musicians / Janet Devlin on X Factor

I usually don't keep up with X Factor or American Idol, to be honest, but I encountered some of her videos on youtube and was really enchanted by her voice.

What do you guys think?

I made some icons, so feel free to use any. :D If you have any specific icon requests, I can make those too.

Creative Endeavors / 'Get Good' Wallpaper

I decided to make a Vanessa wallpaper. Although the lyrics and the pictures come from different time periods, I tried to make them fit. :-\
Tell me what you think, and you're free to use to it if you'd like.
