Hey! I've been drinking tea quite a bit lately, and was just wondering whether the other NESSAholics like tea. haha..... random... but whatever. I wonder what V's witch doctor tea is.... :) I vote yes, I like tea, and Green is my fav. :)

Does someone have an extra H&T booklet that they could sell to me for a dollar or two? I lent mine to someone who needed it for V to sign, and so now I don't have one. I would totally handle shipping costs and stuff.... Thanks! :)

Well, I have known of her for a while now, and I think she's a lovely writer. She is Dutch traditionally, but she lives in the US and I think she has lived here for most of her life.  haha.... nice music to listen to in the quiet and enjoy. :)
This is a cover of Use Somebody by the Kings of Leon that she did... I love it. :)

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa Songs that impressed....
« on: June 24, 2011, 04:55:26 pm »
What are some songs that immediately impressed you? I know we all love all of her songs, but weren't there a few that just immediately impressed you bigtime?

For me (keep in mind that I play the piano):
- Wanted- Heard it a while after I had the album and was like... wow... piano playing.... wow.. :)
-Papa- The piano=wow! :) I loved the end... that just impressed me so much
-Annie- Come on... the lyrics and the music are amazing!
-Hands on Me- The lyrics changed my life.... (they were the ones that made me a fan)
-Home- The outro... is perfect...
-Heroes and Thieves- The instrumental pieces and the lyrics are amazing!
-Swindler- Piano playing, especially at the end, is just a wow....
-All I Ask- The instrumental parts amazed me the first time I heard them....

That's it for me... i think. :P Can't wait to add more with ROTR! :)

This is a cover that I just posted. I tried something new that I think went well... haha.. Enjoy!

Hey! For those of you who haven't discovered it yet, there is a great group for ROTR, including a release event for July 26th! Please join! Enjoy! :):):):)

This is a cover of carousel that I did about a month ago. I transcribed it myself, so enjoy! :)

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa's inspiration and us...
« on: June 06, 2011, 06:12:40 pm »
Well... Last week, in the spirit of V's new album, I decided to buy a used copy of Watership Down. It's in the mail on its way, and I was just curious as to who else decided to read the books  that she stated inspired her. Just thought I might understand the album more, and it is also just a classic. :)

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa and fanmail...
« on: May 28, 2011, 05:04:28 pm »
Well, I sent Vanessa a letter, two photos, and a little something for her, and I haven't gotten a reply back. I know it will take a while, even though she isn't really doing anything right now. But does anyone have any information on how my chances are? I didn't read anything about successes. But does anyone have any input? Should I expect an answer? Thanks! :)

Creative Endeavors / Carousel Cover
« on: May 17, 2011, 07:30:23 pm »
I am a hopeful in the singer-songwriter idea.... HAha... But the stuff I've written definitely has influence from Vanessa. Maybe some to come? But this is a cover of carousel that I did a few weeks ago, and it is self transcribed. Enjoy!
