Fire and Rain ( James Taylor 70’s Acoustic Guitar Cover Song ß? Stef ) – Here is my cover of James Taylor’s 1969 / 1970 song Fire and Rain of which I have been playing for many years. I have interpreted this video montage the best way I can to echo James Taylor’s experiences that inspired the song lyrics & this includes the death of ‘Susanne’ thru suicide (“Susanne, the plans you made put an end to you”) & then James’s personal experiences of mental institutions, shock treatment (ECT that he called The Fire) & the ‘Rain’ being the cold showers that followed shock treatment. Ultimately all this led to a drug addiction & the personal battle that ensued. I have made a stab in the dark that the ‘telephone line’ could be a Helpline but that’s just an assumption on my part. I wanted to say much more on stress, medications and mental health issues, particularly about the stigma these days of the 1960’s meds that were issued freely and in abundance for anything remotely stress related and their side effect impacts upon patients, as this is a subject that I can very much relate to. And today’s meds that are the ‘accepted’ norm but will be the new stigma of 2050 due to the harsh side effects folks have to endure with some of them. Producing this video certainly made me think long and hard about the whole drugs situation with folks around the globe and the struggle with them that sometimes ensues. But I’m not convinced that a guitar channel is the right place for those words and subsequently I took down my candid views blog that I posted here with the

    I’m Asian, and I don’t use treatment on my hair.

    Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair products just absorb on your hair if they’re dry, like a sponge.
    Jessica Simpson have figured it out, she said she wash her hair every week. She used to abuse her hair, then start selling hair extensions because her hair starting falling from all the chemicals, but she woke up and found out how to keep her hair healthy AGAIN.

    The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’. Mechanical, chemical, or thermal styling. Hair straighteners and relaxers top the hair products pose the greatest risks. Hair relaxers, related products marketed heavily to African-American women, are dangerous because they may contain powerful chemicals such as lye, a toxic substance also used in drain cleaners.

    The ONLY thing you should be doing to your relaxed hair is:
    Shampoo & condition the hair as usual, every 4-7 days, but continue to trim off the damaged hair, allowing new growth to take over. Use GENTLE shampoo. Applying a small drop amount of oil to wet hair can also act as a leave-in conditioner and provides excellent conditioning in preparation for the next shampooing.

    As long as you continue to ‘abuse’ your hair, your hair will not improve. Hair straighteners are known as hair relaxers, keratin treatments and hair-smoothing products. They work by breaking and reforming the chemical bonds in keratin, which is the main protein that gives shape to each hair.

    > > > > BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT HAD BEEN BANNED by the Food & Drug Adm. Sept. 12, 2011.

    Google keratin treatment warnings. About 1,980,000 results (0.17 seconds) 
    Past users of the product have complained of sore throat, skin irritation, headaches, chest pain and rashes, among other symptoms. That may have something to do with the fact that the levels of formaldehyde found in the product rival those typically used in funeral embalming. That’s a lot of formaldehyde.
    Reps for the company swear it’s all a misunderstanding. And the product labels itself “no formaldehyde” and “formaldehyde free.” The company has until September 12 to get its affairs in order, or risk having its product seized by the FDA. “We have been tested countless times by OSHA,” the company’s CEO Mike Brady told NPR. “And we have never exceeded a safety standard ever.” Right now, they are fighting with the FDA, but will continue to give what customers want,. Buyer beware!
    Hair-straightening products are allowed to contain small concentrations of formaldehyde (0.2 percent). But several hair-straightening solutions have been found to contain well above the allowable limit. For example, one popular hair-straightening product that advertised itself as “formaldehyde-free” actually contained 6.8 percent to 11.8 percent formaldehyde.

    BTW: A variety of hair-straightening products used in professional salons can expose both hairdressers and their customers to formaldehyde. The results show that three professional hair-smoothing treatments labeled “formaldehyde free” can produce the cancer-causing chemical at concentrations above the occupational exposure limits set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They tested four products: Coppola Keratin Complex Blonde Formula, Global Keratin Juvexin Optimized Functional Keratin, La Brasiliana Escluso Keratin Treatment with Collagen, and Brazilian Blowout Acai Professional Smoothing Solution. While ChemRisk tested four popular brands of hair straighteners, there are hundreds on the market. Nov. 11-11

    By contrast, beauty salon owners and stylists generally lack a scientific background and don’t have a keen awareness of the danger of working with products that contain formaldehyde, experts say.

    Chemicals can enter the body through the skin.

    This has always been my favorite JT song. I always thought the writing was so profound, and I think you did a wonderful cover of this, Stef. I think your pics here are well chosen. Mental illness can be tough, and I like the fact that you don’t sanitize anything here. I suffer a bit with Seasonal Defective Disorder. I’m pretty cheerful through the year, but something about winter makes me really blue. Can’t wait for? February to roll around, I start to feel better. 🙂 Janet

  • AcousticGuitarbyStef says:

    No worries? George, Your Hip description reminded me of Billy the Kid in Young Guns & your household duties reminded me of an old tea towel that adorned our kitchen when I was no more than knee high to a grasshopper & it had the words embedded on it that said ‘something like’ “A Good Husband is one who will wash up when asked and Dry up when Told” .. or something along those lines ! Ahh, the tackiness of British Tea Towel Slogans ! LOL, Be Fabulous at the kitchen sink and enjoy Xmas, Peace, Stef.
