How Can I Tell You All The Things Inside My Head - Tim Rainey

'How Can I Tell You All The Things Inside My Head' CD front image 

Snippets from emails received: 

Right first off, Tim, you are bonkers. Who or what is Albert and wheres his bike gone? Great work fella! Steven UK 

Hmmm....Hawkwind laced with early Floyd methinks. Ivan UK 

Reminded me of early Floyd and early Genesis with just a hint of something else I just cant quite put my finger on.  Alan UK 

The later singing parts remind me of Bob Calvert (Hawkwind circa 1978ish) but to be honest the speaking bit sounds better! Jem Australia  

          I know Ive already said it, but the engineering is great Tim, possibly even a talent. Chris Australia 

Well, its better than me telling you what its like.  I would just like to add that there is an eclectic mix of material on this CD ranging from electronic to symphonic; plus a few other strange diversions on the way    

For a taste of what the CD contains, click the play button... 

You should NOT be seeing this text.

  Altered States - Tim Rainey

'Altered States' CD front image

Superb stuff!!  Q00, UK 

I really like this kind of stuff! The last track does it for me - spot on! ML, UK

'Altered States' contains three 20 minute tracks of ambient/natural sounds encoded with specially tuned binaural beats designed to induce a relaxed dreamy/drug like altered state. This CD is for listening on headphones; speakers may be used but the binaural encoding will be severely diminished, if not lost altogether. 

Some people 'get' binaural beats straight away, others take time to experience the full affect, either way, designating some time everyday to listen to one, two or all three tracks will increase the brain's ability to tune in and synchronise to the binaural beats.

The Prussian physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove discovered binaural beats in 1839 and over the intervening years much research has ensued.  There is still controversy over their use and the following disclaimer is quoted from the Wikipedia binaural beats page:

 "Those meeting any of the following criteria/conditions should not use binaural beats:

epileptics, pregnant women, people susceptible to seizures, pacemaker users & photosensitive people.

People under the age of 18 or under the influence of medication or drugs should consult a physician before using binaural beats.

Binaural beats should not be used while driving or operating machinery.

Before using binaural beats, it is advised that one be examined by a physician for possible epilepsy or any medical condition that may contribute to seizures. Although there is no known and/or documented case of binaural beats causing detrimental or negative effects, including seizures, it is always recommended to first consult a physician."

The inevitable slightly smaller print: If you have any doubts, health fears, worries, neurotic thoughts etc, do not purchase this CD.  No claims, law suits or even lounge suits will be entertained.  Use of this binaurally encoded CD is entirely at your own risk.  If you are the type to fall, graze your knee and call for your mummy to kiss it better, then the chances are this CD isn't for you.

English-Greek Compass Points and Wind Names

 English Greek Compass Points and Wind Names CD front image                               Greek boat license

If you live in Greece and wish to own and use a pleasure boat in Greek waters, and the boat has an engine either inboard or outboard, then you must apply for a Greek boat license. 

To obtain your license, you will have to pass a written multiple choice style test in Greek. Thankfully you are allowed to bring an interpreter to assist you.  The written test is followed by a practical aboard a boat; the boat may be your own or one supplied by the Greek Coast Guard - . 

Provided you familiarise yourself with the rules of the road (*see below) then the written test shouldnt be too difficult.  Areas you need to pay attention to include: lights, signals, compass points and wind names. 

Compass points and wind names?! I hear you say.  Yes, and in Greek too!   

In Greece, the 16 major compass points have a wind name associated with them. Your test may include questions relating to them so you must learn them off by heart.  Not only that but knowing them is essential if you wish to understand Greek shipping forecasts; who would put to sea without knowing the forecast eh...   

For instance, NORTH is '' and the associated wind name is: ''.  But how are they pronounced?  phonetically sounds something like: VOREEOS, and ?... clearly it would be better to hear them repeatedly spoken.   

Enter this CD.  It has the English followed by the Greek translation; spoken by a native Greek speaker.  Repeated listening will commit the whole 16 compass points and their wind names to memory in no time at all and help you sail through the test. 

Included on the CD sleeve notes are: International Code of Signals and Lights:

International code of signals CD insert image     Shipping 'Lights' CD insert image

The test will certainly include questions related to Lights and possibly Signals too.

Also included is a laminated A4 size compass rose with the compass points and wind names in Greek; colour coded to aid recognition.

Good luck with the test captain... anchors aweigh!
