Subject: Weather-a safe topic for mudcat?
From: Tim theTwangler
Date: 10 May 07 - 07:55 AM

In view of all the warm air and blowing hot and cold on certain mudcat threads lately
(ok all the time)
I thought I would start a thread that would be an island of banality nestling serenly in the eye of the storm of debate.
A place were the true uncontentious nature of the Brit F(*)olky could be displayed for our freinds around the world who may have gotten the idea that we are a warlike and arguementative people.
So here it is.
The weather here in Grimsby is fine&sunny but a tad breezy with a hint of showers to come.
This means musically that I must be sure to fetch my guitar in doors when ever I need another beer or to use the bathroom.
How is it with you?

Hang on where did I put the word friends that you have taken such a dim veiw off?
IF you are refering to my use of the word freinds that I used in my intro to this thread, then I am afraid you are putting your own ignorance of the English language on public display.
I was of course quoting from the writings of the 11th century polemnicist Anon who used the word in several manuscripts.

Us bodrhannii have the last laugh in cases of sudden inclement weather at outdoor sessions.
We are always excluded from the circle of proper musicians to a position nearer the car park.
Why oh why oh why do the players of "melody instuements" always think they can shelter from the elements beneath those whistle,guitars,fiddles etc.
Such small instruments,such large ego,s.
I have noticed that every one suddenly is the freind of the piano player in a downpour though.

Another thread on Mudcat where the insidious and ever-present threat of the right-wing facist, racist elite attempt to take over the subject of the weather.

Well, I can tell you I've been exposed to the weather for forty years, as were many of my ancestors (my grandparents all had weather-related stories to tell). We didn't take part in the revivial because we didn't need to - our connection to the weather runs unbroken through the marrow of my family. Those upstarts who are out in the weather and think they know it all simply don't respect the old ways of the weather - we had some bloody hot summers before climate change came along you know.

I know what I'm talking about, everyone else doesn't and you Hitler-loving proles can kiss my Cumulus Nimbus.

Haddock baiting is a manly puruit and many do not realise that when roused to anger the haddock is a truly terrifying and vindictive creature.

Listen up, Tim the so-called Twang fucking ler- I'm an authority on Anon's writings, having edited her manuscripts with my grandad when we were at Cecil's flat. She had originally written "fiend", in reference to a man she suspected of looking at her- it was later male editors who made a bollox of it, as to be expected. Not only did they assume she meant "friend", they then got the spelling wrong. They probably felt that any old old sh*t would do (typical!). It's you and they who are the ignoramorum, not I (or is that "me", I'm never too sure).

I prefer a good Conn over a Martin OR a Gibson. Trumpeters RULE because they can play in any weather (except sub-zero cold -- valves get sticky and I'll bet you've NEVER put your lips to a cold, cold metal mouthpiece).

Guitars and good weather are for wussies.

Anyway - What's this about pretty weather ladies? Just asking for it now aren't you. Sexist, weatherist and appearencist at the same time, eh? Anyway, isn't it about time that we stopped reffering to weather in such a negative way? How do you expect the weather to earn an honest living if people expect it to do what it does for free? I, for one, am more than happy to pay a proper price to see decent, honest weather in a comfortable modern environment rather than round the back door of a grotty pub!

Cheers

Yeah? Well our TV weatherMAN does a pretty good job out here in the Rockies, where predicting the weather is TOUGH -- not like wimpy English weather: "Foggy tonight, with rain tomorrow" over and over and over....

Now, Scottish weather is more like it: manly, tough, like out here in The West.

Remember what they say: The cowards never predicted and the weak fronts died on the way.

Don't underestimate the fog and rain. Many have come across the Atlantic in the belief that the weather is weak. Only to enter the mist shrouded environs of Derbyshire or Exmoor never to be seen again...

Besides, it was us who gave you the weather. You lot have fucked it up like the language and the art of tea making. You will be telling us that you saved us from nasty German weather next!

well - one could argue that a thread about bank vaults or similar diveices would be a "safe" thread; but I suppose one could argue against it as well.

weather just ain't what it used to be; heck, I was born in a short lull between two hurricanes - both of which made it further north then Cape Cod; both of which threw fishing boats up on shore, etc, etc, etc. These days the place would be declared a disaster zone - back then people just took snapshots to prove it happenned and then went on.

Do you twangle with others, Tim, or do you do it all on your lonesome?

I find that twangling can be enhanced by both good and bad weather conditions. Good weather conditions make anyone feel like twangling. Bad weather, on the other hand, works well too, because you want to get away from it into some cozy refuge where you can twangle and forget about the weather for awhile.
