Completely Off-Topic / Vanessa Carlton Handbag Style
« on: August 24, 2011, 04:53:27 pm »
I was wondering if anyone had any photos of Vanessa Carlton with her vintage COACH bag. I am trying to identify which current COACH classic/original it is most similar too. I saw her once with it, but I didn't take a photo. Before I saw her bag, I had been eyeing a similar bag :-P

Rabbits on the Run
Vanessa Carlton (Razor & Tie)

Ever since hitting in 2002 with lite-radio standards “A Thousand Miles” and “Ordinary Day,” singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton has been casting about for a viable second act to her career. It took her awhile, but she’s gotten there. “Rabbits on the Run” reintroduces her as an indie-pop impressionist with a daydream in her head and her foot on the damper pedal of her piano. A few of the compositions on this brief collection recall her prior existence as a major label moneymaker, but the arrangements are spare and drowned in analog echo. The more straightforward songs (“Carousel,” “Dear California”) sound indebted to Liz Phair’s piano pop experiments, and the denser second half of the disc tiptoes toward misty Aislers Set territory. Carlton’s pastel chalk mark of a voice fits this style better than it ever did when she was in heavy rotation, and she’s sharpened her melodies, too: “London,” in particular, is a jeweled bracelet of notes. Carlton wins extra points for converting R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” — perhaps inadvertently, and perhaps not — into a twee anti-proposal called “I Don’t Want to Be a Bride.”
— Tris McCall

I like how the reviewer refers to VC as a "indie-pop impressionist".

I am not sure where to post this, so moderators please feel free to move this.

Anyone watching this show on Bravo? Songwriters compete for a publishing contract, etc?

I've watched the first couple of episodes. 

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa Ad for PETA
« on: June 02, 2011, 08:13:43 pm »
My Vanessa Carlton Google alerts brought up this post which mentions that  "Vanessa Carlton has teamed up with PETA to promote spaying and neutering. Below, Vanessa tips her hat to her canine pal, Victor, for being a lifesaver by getting neutered."

I just checked and it looks like there is going to be a music book published for Rabbits on the Run. This link says it will be released in July.

Anyone listen to Vanessa Carlton songs while working out? I'm working on putting together a VC songs only playlist for when I'm on the Elliptical machine. I need some ideas.

If you have a playlist, I ask that you please post it here :-)

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Official VC Merchandise

Is there any official new VC (heroes and Thieves) merchandise out there? I kinda hope she'll be selling some on her tour with Joshua Radin. My Harmonium shirt shrank and my BNN shirt is very worn.

Is it just me or does the riff on her song Clumsy sound familiar? Is a sample of another song used here? I feel like another hip hoppy type of song also had this kind of sound a year or so ago..

Just wondering what this is reminding me of.

Anyone catch this show on VH1?

I am a woman and I must admit, I was quite entertained and intrigued by the first episode and this "Mystery" guy's schtick.
