No Rain Gear Required to Enjoy This Rainy Day

(PRWEB) March 25, 2005

Elastic Systems has just released Rainy Screensaver 2.2 for Windows. This screensaver is so realistic; you may just worry about water damage to your computer! Unlike similar screensavers developed around the concept of rain, Rainy Screensaver gives the uncannily realistic feeling of looking out the window on a rainy day. The raindrops splash against the inside of your monitor glass and wend their way down, smearing your documents or whatever else may be in their path. The effect is so convincing, you'll be reaching for a towel to wipe up the mess!

This release adds two new screensaver control options. Now you will be able to limit the CPU load produced by the screensaver if needed. An option to ignore mouse and keyboard (except the ESC key) will let you run the screensaver on an unattended computer so that nobody will accidentally stop it.

The screensavers features the pleasing sounds of rain, and even booming thunderclaps if you like. Completing the realism are intermittent flashes of lightning. The sound volume is completely adjustable and can even be turned off if desired. With its numerous user settings, you can set up your own sound and light effects schemes which are either soothing and relaxing or clamorous and explosive!

With just a few clicks of the mouse the software is installed and enchanting you with gentle spring showers. No expensive 3D hardware is required. Rainy Screensaver runs on any Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP PC supporting high-color (16-bit) or true-color (24 or 32-bit) monitor settings.

Says Roman Kramar, CEO of Elastic Systems, "Nature wallpaper enthusiasts like me will love the effect this screensaver has on their scenery collections. It very literally brings your favorite photographs and wallpapers to life. And with its ability to rotate through a series of wallpapers, you can even enjoy all of your favorite wallpapers regardless of the number of windows you have open on your desktop."

Rainy Screensaver is sure to draw exclamations and compliments from your friends and co-workers, and provide you with hours of enjoyment, amusement and relaxation. It really is a 'must have' for nature wallpaper aficionados, and makes an indispensable addition to any screensaver collection.

Rainy Screensaver is only $ 14.95(US) for a single-user license. Network and site licenses are also available. For more information, contact Elastic Systems via its Web http://www.elasticsystems.com/ or E-mail rainy-pr@elasticsystems.com.

Exotic Electronica Album COSMIX by Ram Dass & DJ Kriece Mixes It Up with Music & New Media, Reminding Us to “Enjoy it All!”





Cosmix by Ram Dass & Kriece, available on Waveform Records.


La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2008

From his Maui retreat, cultural icon Ram Dass embraces modern music and innovative new media to reach out to devotees across the miles and across the years. His new enhanced album, Cosmix, released today on Waveform Records, La Jolla, CA. Ram Dass' commitment to sharing personal experience is great as ever and his sense of compassion heightened, as felt during his regular satsang webcasts and periodic Hawaiian conferences.

With the release of Cosmix, the past and the present become one through music. Greatly recovered from the massive stroke he suffered in 1997, Ram Dass welcomed the invitation by DJ Kriece to select key dialogue from his broad range of lectures to mix and share with a younger generation. Ram Dass -- a spiritual and cultural icon known for embracing and sharing Eastern teachings with the West and a contemporary of revolutionary thinkers Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley and Allen Ginsberg - immediately connected with Kriece, a world-renowned Australian DJ and producer who has played alongside Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox, BT, Dave Seaman, H-foundation, Kevin Saunderson, Dave Clarke and Lee Burridge.

"This album represents a full circle for me," Ram Dass says. "In the '60s, when Tim Leary and I began exploring inner space with psychedelics, the music was always a groove that we could follow, a route to take us higher. Music was at the forefront of the expansion of consciousness and the counter culture. There was a group consciousness that evolved in some of the performances of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix and others, that was transcendent and brought a sense of unity and a feeling of deep love and joy. Later, when I made it to India, I was introduced to other music and sounds that vibrate with the cosmos, using it to get high. The music itself is the high and you just become it, like a surfer becoming one with the wave."

Cosmix is a rhythmic, energizing album that merges timeless wisdom with modern sounds, chants, and world instruments. Ram Dass' most relevant dialogue is mixed with moving, chilled back electronica perfect for yoga, meditation, or atmospheric entertainment. The music dominates without diminishing the power of Ram Dass' messages on tracks "Mantra," "Stuck," "The Game," "Additya Hridayam," and six others. The enhanced CD also contains a historic, heartwarming ten minute video excerpt from "The Last Dance," Ram Dass' final recorded conversation with his life-long friend, the late LSD guru, Timothy Leary, who encouraged Ram Dass to celebrate death as the next transitional stage on their journey.

Forest, managing director of Waveform Records, says, "Not since the late Terence McKenna's 'Alien Dreamtime' album in the early '90s, has enlightened spirituality flowed so well with contemporary chill-out and this time each track is separate, a manageable length and broadcast-friendly. For the most part, the music dominates, without diminishing the power of Ram Dass' messages. Without being overly preachy, Ram Dass' expressive words give new meaning and interest to this energized yet inspirational musical environment, while DJ Kriece's deftly selected grooves bring new life and focus to some universal and timeless spoken truths."

Today, Waveform announced a comprehensive campaign underway for the enhanced CD, including promotional outreach to College and specialty radio, with prominent airplay on the Ambient channel of ambient RadioIO.com, Musical Starstreams and XM Satellite Chill 84.

Internet marketing will include a YouTube.com "RamDassCosMIXes" video re-mix page, increased MySpace outreach, and music downloads at Amazon.com, iTunes, Rhapsody and Napster. The enhanced CD is distributed by Allegro, NewSound, Arabesque (U.K. & Europe), White Swan and others; KDM Promotions and SPECTRE Music handle radio promotion, while Bette Timm services New Age retailers with promotions geared to gift and bookstores.

Ram Dass, who has numerous books, videos, DVDs and tapes available in the marketplace, tells us, "This collaboration makes this blend of music and spirituality available to a new generation. Kriece has brought together the influences of World music, chanting, electronics and spoken word. I am honored he has used words I spoke, though it is only us talking to ourselves. This mixdown of mantra and electronica merges into One Love."

One can visit Ram Dass, Waveform Records and Kriece at their official websites, and on their respective pages at MySpace.com and YouTube.com.
