Completely Off-Topic / Vanessa Carlton on reddit
« on: August 12, 2015, 10:07:19 am »
So, I recently managed to get hold of the mod position on the official Vanessa Carlton subreddit which is as expected kinda dead. I think it may be a really good way to get some exposure for Vanessa on there or at least help out any curious redditors who chance upon the sub or wanna know what she's upto?

I wanted to know if any of the official admins of NESSAholics or anyone else would be interested in joining me as mod on the sub? I'd like to make it a little more active that's all. So... active redditors probably let me know? We could just get the page to look pretty and update the posts on there?

Not looking to take the conversation away from this place, as this forum will ALWAYS be home for all of us (Seriously, admins running this place, no one says it enough but THANK YOU). Just think that that platform would be a really nice place to get V a little more PR and exposure?

Lemme know!

P.S. I'm assuming the other shadow-banned redditor who was modding the sub earlier is a NESSAholic? You know who you are and what I'm talking about but I only JUST got your messages. :D

I dunno. I think what throws me off the most is her use of the expression "Moneymaker". It kind of reminds me of 'Fair Weather Friend' which I think is about Stephan and how he cheated on her but there is this vibe I get from FWF that she felt that Stephan was "using" her for her fame. It's in the "but you do it for the fame" line and in the basic expression "Fair Weather Friend" and she uses this expression of Moneymaker which reminds me of the same vibe.

The idea that the song is about eloping is interesting but why moneymaker? Why? And more importantly... Why 'Operator'?

Also--what's everyone's take on this song????? Meanings??

Lol. This is I dunno... a very sexy song? I dunno... It gives me a very BDSM vibe but that's on the surface. I'm waiting for an epiphany with a much deeper meaning to blow my mind away.

Yup. Got it on Google Play and the audio is fucking amazing. Operator is killing me. I know I said it before but its just so early Vanessa I wanna scream and no one around me will understand what this song is doing to me but you guys!!!

Oh and the trumpets on Take it Easy. This production is going to be amazing.

Operator = Moneymaker!!!

But seriously am loving this song. It's... It's reminiscent of early Vanessa "Demo" tape stuff!

I'm liking the lyrical direction she seems to be taking with this song and Blue Pool. They're both like open letters where she's talking to someone and... it's not so much a lover or a former lover but it's like the lyrics can be extrapolated to a friend as well... I was a bit in tears over this song though. It actually gave me goosebumps and it's been a while since a song's done that to me.

I may have spent a good half an hour looking for the Blue EP not realizing she said JULY 24th.  :(

That last tweet by Vanessa acknowledging 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' made my day. It was like fandoms colliding!!!

Anyone else loving this album?

My biggest peeve in the lyrics is when she's talking about the cigarette and she sees the FAME in his/her eyes!!!! Is it just me but won't FLAME be a better word???

Those pics are wonderful. Glad to know you had a good time.

I'm curious though. If the graveyard isn't on Elizabeth, is the graveyard a metaphor for something else on there?

Um, has Skye gone blond or platinum blond or is that just the lighting or is that not Skye?

Also, anyone ripped that audio, yet?

It was even available on Google Play! So Android kids, can check there!!! Pleasantly surprised.

Also, I feel like a total glutton knowing that she is not including this on the album. I mean that only means there is place for A LOT MORE MUSIC (aka one more song) on the album and I cannot wait!!!

Um. Thoughts on "What kind of man?"

IMO: I LOVE IT. The video is perfection and I really hope Vanessa makes a video like that in the future. Artsy AF!

So she just tweeted about this as well.

But some guy called MNEK has used ATM and mashed it up with B-52's "Love shack"?

It's weird in the beginning but the mashing up actually salvages it imo. Though honestly I do not think ANYONE would be able to do this song justice except for her and her arrangement. It's just sacred.
