About

Music is my second love, my first being art (painting, etc.) I have a few paintings on the net at SouthAfricanArtists.com. You're welcome to browse my name, Raine Carosin, for all my goodies on the net. Otherwise, with regards to music, I had guitar lessons for a year (12 years old), and then I just learned from other musicians throughout my meanderings. Of course, I didn't apply myself 100%, and now that I am middle-aged, I have procured as much material for learning as possible, but find that with the beginnings of arthiritis and a taste of senility, (and that my youthful stamina is abating) I can only learn slowly. However, there are backtracks and karaoke nowadays that do the trick when I am unable to accompany myself with the guitar. I have a keyboard (Korg is50) and a few computer programmes, which I am also learning to use, but slowly. I wanted to be famous but failed miserably due to unforseen circumstances. (I suffered a head injury in 1981/2 and was diagnosed as schizophrenic in 1985). Now, with the internet and sites like these - although I must say, I haven't come across another wonderful site like this ever! - my dreams have come true to a degree that I am more than satisfied with. I'm too wheezy to cavort on a stage, so working from home suits me down to the ground. It's just me and the machines and the guitars and the trees, and the cat. (UPDATE: The cat has moved to her new home.) Hubby watches with one ear. This, for me, is like the Woodstock for the net. I hope that my old songs will become modernised so that all those hours I spent writing and remembering them won't be lost forever. You're welcome to contact me if you wish to collaborate. I have tons of poetry just waiting for melodies, and I can spin a poetic yarn within a day on a chosen subject, as long as I am able to ask questions. Enough about me. And you...? You don't know how happy I get everytime I check my statistics and realise that I have played for another person somewhere in the world, and receive your welcome comments. Even though the stage is all in my head, it's still a great feeling. Thank You. (I haven't given up my day job...) And, also remember, that my music is written for every cell of creation, so boogie, woogie and play on... it is after all, the food of Love... use it, blues it, muse it... PS If you get "muted" by me, I can assure you that it is just because I don't know how to control my mouse when it is dirty, or, I've become intimidated by the machines, again...!!!!! Remember, I'm still new to all this... and, because there are so many different languages and we don't see each other's gestures and faces, there may be misunderstandings, but - no fear - i sometimes put my foot in it, but i mean well... just emotional and moody at times... (4th Dec 2010: Dear Jacques Buvat has uploaded my first collaboration of "I Wanna Take You Forgranted" - I'm so excited I can't find the Earth beneath my feet!!!!)

I've tried my hand at doing two "movie/video"s :

    Hi, JD... How you doing? Fine over here. Really enjoying this song before I lay down my head. It's all over the world and the universal children are wondering what's up... We've known for so long, but what can one do? I remember "Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma?"... I would love to do that song, but haven't gotten 'round to it... You've heard my song: ANCIENT DREAM WARS...? That's how I see this whole scenario, but how it will unfold over Time one cannot foretell... :-} Thanks for sharing... Warmest wishes to you and yours!!! :-}

    Really good work there... Dunno what inspired you to do this soundtrack, but my imagination is running wild with the good guys chasing the bad guys in a top-notch crime series or movie!!!! Good work!!! I hope this song starts to get the recognition it deserves!!! If not now, keep plugging it... It's really hot... Perhaps the title, which reminded me of an Elton John number, put me off a bit... I'd vote for "ANTIDOTUMNI"... It's on the house, from me!!! :-}

    @◄Jungle♦DOG►: Ah, thanks, JD! Oi, ate eggplant for supper yesterday, and the day before (I love it and did two different recipes.) Anyways, long story short, the four of them eggplants went through the eye of a needle just to prove that it could be done, and I'm as weak as rubber band... hahahaha!!!! Did you know (I only found out last night), that eggplant, and tomatoes among other nice things, are related to DEADLY NIGHTSHADE? I'm sure there are books and movies and songs with that title, too, but nothing I would sing praises to right now LOL! Aoi, I'm buggered. Pierre doesn't eat that stuff, and now I don't eat it anymore, either! We were both too scared to light a match! Aai, but life is stupid sometimes, and one is only too glad to laugh about it afterwards! Thanks for popping around and liking my sound! Still makes me cry or get a lump in my throat... <3

    @Sunnidayz: Love you, too! The title came out wrong, why, I'm sure it's the "new look" for soundcloud, so I reverted back to the old classic style soundcloud and was able to correct it, and also to reply to you... The new soundcloud layout is horrible compared to the classic layout! Glad you like the song... Was thinking of you yesterday... Do hope all is going well... My home is filled as a storage room for Pierre's business and there's just no "room to move" (which reminds me of John Mayall song of the same name http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ASnbv_ZsWY&feature=kp), I love John Mayall... Reminds me of how I used to "prep up" for a Saturday and the rest of the weekend during the early eighties... Anyways, did I ask you how you are? Hope all is well, and waiting for the "clearance" of all the stuff in the house so I can have "room to move"... I had all of J. Mayall's albums at one stage, but then went mad... LOL!!!! It's darned hot here and I'm nearly dripping in perspiration... With menopause, I'm so anticipating the summer to turn into autumn, and then winter... Horrors, we're never satisfied!!! Hahahaha XXX

    I see the reflection of myself in eyes - sometimes I like myself, sometimes I love myself, sometimes I wonder what the hell I was thinking...! Nowadays, I don't look too hard, scared of what I'll find... That is what the song inspired from me... I enjoyed it thoroughly and there was a moment when I thought it had ended, but then, thankfully, it went on... Lovely work... (Sometimes I feel so silly communicating through a machine, but, well, it's better than trying to find the address of the writer of a song in the olden days! LOL!!!!) I've watched enough forensic science now and making plans to slip beyond reason into a dream or two! Hope you and yours are having happy holidays!) Best wishes, raine and pierre :-}

    @◄Jungle♦DOG►: Thanks, JD... He laughed when I told him it was a love song and said it sounded like a sad song... But, yes, it was written with him in mind, but also for those who are close to me who would understand crying alone... Yes, I was thinking of everyone around the world... yes, I was, as you - like others - pop around and may find me a bit red-eyed, but have that wonderful understanding... Remember that song: "...Understanding is the best thing in the world, (?) between a boy and a girl... (?) between a woman and a man... (?and I don't know the rest of the words...)..." Woke up today and decided that all "my" thoughts were like clouds passing by, and I could join in or I could blow them away... or, just go with the flow... hahaha... "...clouds in my coffee... (you're so vain)..." So, today I'm glad to hear from you and others, as in everyday, but 'specially today, cos thoughts are clouds and my will is the wind... Have a stunning day there where you are, and may all go favourably with you all! Now my cloud is disintegrating and I'm a bit listless... Whew... :-}
