GUEST,Azizi Check out Coco Jams!!!! very cool, Azizi (8) RE: Check out Coco Jams!!!! very cool, Azizi 14 Apr 05

Well I'm surprised to see this thread!

Actually, I found out about Mudcat as a result of Q's visiting CocoJams in 2002.

Prior to February 2005, CocoJams's focus was the presentation of selected examples of African American children's rhymes and secular slave songs. The examples also included brief commentsthat I had written about the possible sources of the rhymes, performance styles & directions, etymology including slang and folk etymology,
suggested psycho-social meanings of the rhymes etc.

In February 2005, I kept those pages, added a few more examples of African American children's and adult's rhymes and chants, and began to include 'posts' and 'Mudcat re-posts' that focused on folk's memories about their everyday experiences. Most of the re-posts are those that I wrote on various Mudcat threads. All other re-posts are used with the prior permission of 'Catters, or are from non-member Guests without seeking prior permission {as per my discussion with Joe Offer}.

I have not promoted CocoJams here {or elsewhere} because it is still in development. But thanks for the compliments. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

BTW, This website was designed and developed with largely volunteer technical support from a friend, Lucas Musewe. The concept and much of the content is mine, but I really didn't have a clue how to do anything technical. There's still a great deal about computers I don't know. For instance, I was just told that I have a problem with my Windows application and that I need to back-up all my files as they will be lost because a new Windows program needs to be installed. And then all my other programs need to be installed again.

What??!! I'm in total panic here, and have placed a called to Lucas but have yet to hear from him...

That's why I'm writing as Guest...

So hopefully, I'll be able to still visit Mudcat from the comfort of my home..but....????

Thanks again Harpgirl for starting this thread.

I appreciate it.
