This is too good.

STUFF ABOUT VANESSA

How old is Vanessa?
24. Her birthday is 8/16/80

Where is she from?
Milford, Pennsylvania That's Milford with an L. If you start nonsense about it being Mitford with a T, we are liable to beat you over the head repeatedly with blunt objects.

Where'd she go to high school?
NYC

Did Vanessa really do ballet?
Yep, and she was really good.

Was that a nose piercing I saw?
Yeah it was

Wow, Vanessa is so pretty! What exactly is her ethnicity?
She is half Russian and half Scandinavian.

Will you date/marry me Vanessa?
I'm gonna go with NO.

Is Vanessa dating Stephan Jenkins (or anyone else)?
First off, let me say I couldn't care less who she's dating (because it's NONE OF MY BUSINESS), but since some people seem to have sticks up their asses about it, I'm quoting Vanessa on this one. "Being that I expose so much of myself in my music, and happily do so, I only hope that there can be parts of my life that I still keep as my own." So let's all simma down now, simma down.

RANDOM BOARD INFO

Does Vanessa ever read post here?
Yes

How do I know if it's her?
Her screen name is vanessacarlton and she always always always has a blue unicorn.

Can I PM her?
Nope

Vanessa sent me a PM!!!!
No she didn't.

How do I send a PM?
The little blue link that says PM.

How do I check my PMs?
First, you have to be logged in. Then up in the navigation row, you should see PMs...click it.

What does the lock mean?
No replying in the thread.

How do I do HTML stuff like adding pictures, links, etc?
You can't do HTML, but there are codes you can use to do similar things...click on the word help.

Can I change my password?
Check out the Update Profile section...it has all the info you need

Language...what can I say?
You can say whatever you want. Typing is another matter. The board has a language filter. Please don't be obnoxious and type things like sh!t and fu(k. That's just retarded.

Geez, that guy posting is such a jerk, I'm going to tell him off!
Well, that will accomplish SO much. Just ignore him. His thread will fall...yes it will.

Aaaaah! Where'd my post go?
To the next page, or the one after it. Only the threads with the most recent replies stay on the first.

WTF is wrong with this board?
I don't know. If I knew, I'd let you know. Just know that the board randomly eats people's posts, shuts itself down, etc.

What in the world is a lurker?
Someone who either is not logged in or not registered who is reading the boards.

What does bump mean?
It's a way of moving a thread to the top of the page without actually having to say something.

What's that orange flashy thing?
It means a thread has more than 10 replies

As cool as Vanessa is, are we allowed to talk about other stuff too?
No matter how much other people get their panties in a wad, I have to say yes. This is a board for Vanessa fans to get to together and chill. We're all friends, and friends don't talk about the same stuff all the time either. As long as it's not overdone or wildly retarded, off topic things are cool sometimes.

STUFF ABOUT VANESSA'S MUSIC

Does Vanessa write her own songs?
Yep. 10 of the 11 songs on her album are originals. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote the other.

Did she play piano on the album?
For sure! She's been playing since she was two.

What is the CD called?
Be not Nobody

Is it good?
Duh...it got her 3 Grammy nominations

Is Be not Nobody available internationally?
Yep!

I'm from the States, where can I get Vanessa's CD?
Your friendly neighborhood Target, Wal-Mart, or other random record store.

Where can I get all the unreleased/rare Vanessa songs?
I don't know. Ask around

What about "C'est La Vie", "Papa", and "She Floats" mp3s?
*see above*

I want "All I Ask", "Biride", and "Afterglow"!
too bad

What's the current single?
White Houses. It debuted 8/4/04 on Z100.

When is Vanessa coming to my town?
Check http://forum.nessaholics.com/viewtopic.php?t=496

Who are those rockin guys in her band?
Nate = Drums
Mike = Keyboard/Guitar
Sasha = Bass
Jesse = Guitar

Where can I get the sheet music for Vanessa's songs?
http://www.musicnotes.com. It's cheap. Buy it. I did. They now have all the songs.

What's Vanessa's record label?
A & M http://www.interscope.com

Lyrics, lyrics, I must have lyrics!
OK. Head over to HERE.
Mmm...complete lyrics *drools*

So that song "More Than Wanted" kicks major bootie!
Hmmm...I don't know that one, but I do know "Wanted". It's number 10 on the CD.

I <3 "Along For The Ride".
That's nice...the rest of us call it "Swindler". ;)

I was looking up Vanessa on Kazaa and saw two songs by her that I didn't know she sang. "Watch Me Shine" and "Even Angles Fall". Why aren't they on the album?
That's simple. Because they aren't her songs. "Watch Me Shine" is Joann Pacetti. "Even Angels Fall" is Jessica Riddle

i cant believe i wasted like three minutes of my life reading information that i already knew, but still, it amused me... :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

i find confused vanessa fans cute and funny, but hey, we were all there once in our lives. lets just hope that there are more confused new nessa fans who need help like that.
And all the constellations shine down on you and me... and if you don't believe me, just put your hands on me...

I'm glad you find me (and my posts made from EXTREME frustration) amusing.
I think you underestimate the level of my sneakiness

Vanessa's fans seem to have this tendency to be complicated and obsessive. 8)
