As much as I hate to do it... [Thursday
March 17th, 2005 at 12:39pm]

I'm closing Cello Rock until I can really devote the proper time to it. I've been super busy with some layout communities | free_stylin and cherrystyle, thus, ignoring my beloved Rasputina community.

When I feel I can manage more than 1 active community at a time, I will re-open Cello Rock.

In the meantime, for a super active Rasputina community check out inourbloomers.

Thanks for your understanding,

I'm new here. I'm 18, and love Rasputina and my celli. I got hooked on cello rock a couple of years ago at camp when I heard Apocolyptica for the first time, discovered Rasputina a few months ago and absolutely love them too.

Hey everyone. New to this community, not new to Rasputina. I've been a fan for a couple of years. They are amazing. I'm 16 and I play the cello. I've only been to 1 Rasputina concert, and they are one of the best bands I've ever seen live. I can't wait to see them again. Well I guess thats it. Later.

I am new to the community! :) I saw Rasputina last May in Columbia, SC! They. were. AMAZING! I love them! Are there any other bands similar to them y'all would recommend? If so, do y'all have any music you'd be willing to share? I have a TON of music I could share as well! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

An Icon Update [Friday
January 28th, 2005 at 8:35pm]

I have just created 4 new Rasputina Icons. I hope you like them and someone can use them. Credit is not necessary. On Icon 1 I used a brush by saniagreenleaf. Icon 2 was created with a template I had made.

Only 4 for now. But hopefully more soon. <3

The Newsbunny at Rasputina:

1. · Done recitaling until Spring '05.

2. · Will presently commence new album.

3. · Live recording hoped for Spring release, not in stores.

4. · Potential re-release of HWQTF+ next year.

5. · E. Leon Rauis found. "E. Leon RAINS" Good job, Raspu-sleuths!

6. · DVD footage wasn't stellar, release not planned.

7. · Fan re-mix contest suggested. Idea liked.

8. · Hello, We love you, Good-bye.


I cannot wait for the new album! I usually do not go for live recordings, but they are incredible live. I wonder if they will include Melora's musings in between songs? =D

sheet music... argh! >_ [Thursday

[ mood | cranky ]

does anyone else know of any cheaper ways to get Rasputina's sheet music? Their personal site is selling it for $75.00 and with shipping and handling, i don't know if it's just me, but that is expensive. i'm not looking for the hand made sheet music or anything, regular factory made will suffice. anyone have any ideas? *hopeful*

Two quick CD sales - Rasputina & Cocteau Twins [Monday
November 15th, 2004 at 11:40am]

I pulled some stuff off of my shelf this weekend to start organizing for sale, so here's two rare items you can buy from me directly instead of hassling with eBay. These would both make great gifts for a collector or fan.

1) Rasputina - "How We Quit the Forest" - special promo edition with full-color booklet, out of print.

This is not the usual CD-in-jewelbox format (which is out of print itself); this is a special pre-release promotional edition in an oversized cardstock folio. You can see the front of it here, but the real treasure is inside: 10 full-color pages of Melora's trademark collage art, not reproduced anywhere else that I know of. The illustrations are NOT the same ones in the regular CD release's booklet; they are all oversized just like the folio.

No copies of this appear to be for sale on eBay. Amazon lists one with the disc slightly scratched at $39.99 and one in very good condition at $59.99. Even copies of the regular album are listing on half.com for up to $49.99. This copy is in very good condition; there are very slight dings on the edges of the paper folio, but the disc is perfect and has been played perhaps once or twice.

My price: $55.00.

2) Cocteau Twins - CD single box set, out of print.

Some of the Twins' best work was on their many EPs, which were never collected until this set was released. 10 CDs in an elegant burgundy box; you can see the track listing here. Amazon lists this collection starting at $105; half.com lists one with a very worn box for $69.99 and others for $115 and up. This one is in terrific condition, other than a little dust on the box top.

My price: $100.

Please comment or contact me at elusis (at) rmta (dot) org if you'd like to purchase one or both. We'll figure out payment and shipping. I have feedback of 289 on eBay, earned since 1998. Feel free to pass this on if you know of communities that might be interested.

I got this in my email today ...you should join the newsletter they send out..... [Thursday
November 4th, 2004 at 7:30pm]

[ mood | uncomfortable ]

I got this in my email today as I belong to the rasputina newsletter and i thought it was related to both rasputina and news....caution graphic images behind link

the letter:
Rasputina is totally into morality!

It is immoral to lie.
It is immoral to kill any people (Or even injure them!).
It is immoral to subjugate any kind of people.
it is immoral to be acquisitive or greedy.

Don't you agree?

Look at this:

Rasputina is done touring for this year. We'll start new recordings
now. We'll probably be out recitaling in the spring. We hope to have a
live recording out then too. How We Quit the Forest will likely be
re-released with some extras in the coming year.

If that woman related to Mr. Rauis (Rains) sees this, could she write
to me again? I lost her email long ago. She's related to him! He was an
opera singer from Hamburg, I believe. Can you believe it?!

I hope to have new merch up in the next couple of days for X-mas time.
These will include Brain-Oil perfume, a new poster, Cabin Fever
sheet-music folios, and Frustration tour shirts.

See you later,
Melora & Rasputina

end of letter

I'm glad to know im not alone & I'm excited for the re-ralease of How We Quit the Forests

[ mood | nervous ]

I just joined the community, as I happened to find it by accident, and I really like Rasputina. I live in Finland, far, far away from Rasputina (and I'm not the only fan here, there is handful of others too)... I first heard Rasputina from some online radio station, and I fell in love with it immediately because of the cellos. I also play cello myself, and, In fact, I think I might have lost my heart and soul for those instruments.

I also listen to classical music, mostly pieces that are composed for cellos, naturally, and Apocalyptica, a finnish band that plays heavy metal with cellos.

Hi, I'm new here, and have never joined a comunity before, but figured, what the hell, might as well start somewhere...I loooooove Rasputina, I have a huge poster that I made up in my room, several of their CD's, but, sadly, have never been to a concert...I suppose this is what you get for living in a little cow town thats a long distance from anywhere...oh well...I'm off!

[ mood | need more sleep! ]

so the show in san diego was cancelled a couple months ago but this would not stop me from seeing the best band ever while they toured this happy state of california. i braved the freeways and made the trek to santa ana where i witnessed one of the most rockin' shows involving cello ever. as per the new list of concert dates they'll be making their way to san diego after all for a 21+ show. it seems the ladies are having trouble finding an all ages venue in san diego. if any one's got any ideas the ladies would be much obliged to receive some electronic correspondence concerning the matter. in the meantime i'll see if i can get some photos up here from the santa ana show a friend of mine shot.

Some assistance greatly appreciated. [Tuesday

[ mood | panicked ]

So the Orlando Rasputina show is impending, but as I believe I expressed my predicament earlier, it is an 18+ show, and alas, I am not yet eighteen. Does anyone know if they still permit underage concertgoers, even with someone who is older than eighteen? Are there any suggestions? Any enouragements? Tips? My sister is trying to see if she can get off work -- but it's not a certainty. I adore all three bands -- the Legendary Pink Dots, and especially Faun Fables and Rasputina.
I am crushed at the thought of not seeing one of my favorite bands!

Especially since it is such a rare opportunity. This lineup does not proffer itself often!

I don't mean to sound desperate, but that's not to say that I am not.

Hey all, I just joined! I love the cello, although I don't play myself. I particularly enjoy Zoë Keating and classical chamber-style cello music. I recently created a community for Zoë fans, zoe_keating, join up if you're interested!
