My partner just asked me "doesn't it already squeeze in a couple?" In my case it would if I had a mudcat tshirt.

Are you returned from your North America trip yet?

That's what the mudcat tshirts are useful for. Wear it at festivals and look for others wearing them.

Or you could make hat out of a banjo with a catfish stuck to it. That should really get attention.

Some Cats will say that is a better use of a banjo than its intended purpose

Well, quite the weirdest thing is that VT was possibly the first person I exchanged PM's with - (me thinking at the time she lived in Virginia USA as per her handle.) Then about half a dozen exchanges later, it dawned on me, that we actually live no more than 20 minutes away from each other!

It was almost like Mudcat magically spirited her across the pond in the blink of an eye...

As far as Mudcat goes, she's as good as my next door neighbour. And a good chum to boot.

I've been warmly accepted by the Knockholt folks and will keep going to the various Kent do's now.

Otherwise, I'm also definitely going to take a trip North sometime this Autumn, and catch up in person with some of the UK posters from up thataway.

So you never know who you WILL meet, hey?

One thing about Mudcat is it makes the neighborhood seem so BIG. We'll never meet everybody we want to meet, and some we do meet can only be in our lives for a short while.

It's a hard way to go and get lost somewhere in the thousands of miles it takes to get through all the open, welcoming doors, and those doors close too quickly.

I feel similarly about many of the music and musicians I can never know. Fortunately, Sandy left a legacy of people who did know him and many wonderful recordings, VT, including those he made himself with his Caroline.

Buying some of them for yourself when you can do so is at once a way to experience some wonderful music, enrich your own life, gain a sense of the quality of person Sandy was, and lend a hand to Sandy's family and company, Folk Legacy .

The one thing about Mudcat that really makes me want to leave it, walk away and never look back is frustration.

Not the frustration of feeling so dull in the midst of vibrant intelligent articulate people, though this does make me feel insecure and ashamed of my lack. I have learned to accept that I am not the sharpest tool in the box. A rubber mallet has its uses too.

Not the frustration of repeatedly mean spirited posters and the silliness of letting them get a rise out me and others. Though this bugs me I am mature enough to realise people are who they are and everyone has off days. I can live with it.

The thing see.... the thing that really upsets me most about Mudcat is the virtual meeting of so many people and the horror of not ever having the opportunity to meet them person, to hear them perform, to discover and remember the intonations, facial expressions, turns of phrase. And it is the loss I feel when a Mudcatter passes away, that I did not know and only came to know through others and from archive threads.


It is the furstration that I am missing something that I will never be able to gain.

So that is the danger of Mudcat for me.

I won't go, though. At least not yet.


For now, the fascination is stronger than the frustration.

Think I will dedicate this specific post to Sandy Paton. I didn't know him, though I believe his recent passing just kicked over the bucket of culminating anxiousness about missing out on seeing and hearing Mudcat people.

Hiding in here, licking my wounds for a bit. Getting scary out there again.

I love that people are passionate about preserving the music they love, but I am afraid that preservation may kill it off.

Think I am too simple minded for Mudcat.

Sigh!

Wish I could start a Happy Birthday Andie thread. She would be 28 years old tomorrow. She would have fit in very well here. Passionate and curious about music. Intelligent and informed and ready to defend her ideas and opnions.

Sigh again.

Ok. Pouting in corner over now. Get back into the fray.

Jeri - sometimes the obvious is so obvious no-one bothers to pass it on any more. That way we lose so much information (like song books that never publish the B music or only put in choruses, not the verses), so it bears repeating. There is always someone new who hasn't read it before, even if they don't make themselves obvious.

Mudcat kindness

Another good thing for kittens to learn is about the kindness of catters. I have been loaned (and may soon be purchasing same) a lovely Sigma guitar by a Mudcatter.

Another pleading guitar thread

This place is amazing.

I should mention another catter Richard Bridge has loaned me a mandolin, but he offered it at a session in Rochester so we had the acquainted in real life element.

Still such nice folks here.

really nothing like Stanley Unwin, Matt.

Story was inspired by unwords instead.

After the 3 periods substitute teaching a French III class where the only resource left by teacher was word search puzzle full of French words. In the 1st period I found the French words. In the 2nd period I found some English words. In the 3rd period I started seeing potentially funny unwords. Jeeklurp was the first and I thought what a funny word. What can it mean? So I defined it. A cool refreshing treat made with goat yogurt and fruit of the Jeek tree. Jeek tree is descended or cultivated from the wild Yatzoming, which used to grow on the Anteswertian plain until the Rudinoceri (or so it was erroneously reported) ate them all. Actually human cultivation changed the Yatzoming and the Rudinoceri went away. The goats were afraid because Thwartin had suddenly grown a beard. A thing not seen on the people of Anteswert. But the beard growing only happened to the Flendroplian males and not the Yulmopians which eventually caused great battles between these once friendly people.   

I just couldn't help myself.. several stories were born out of this exercise.

All I can say is beware of word search puzzles. That way danger lies.
