Out of all the people I've told about the Mudcat, there is one who may actually stop by, today. He used to be my boss when I worked at a non-profit arts center in RI.

Anyway....his name is Ed and I thought it'd would be encouraging, welcoming, etc. if we all came through with a surpise thread to him, so that he sees it first thing when he gets a chance to come in here. Of course, since he does have a life, there is a chance he may not make it, but it'll still give us a chance to bask in the glow of mutual admiration for each other and Max's creation, right?

Anyway....thanks to you all, in advance, and, hey! Eddie, surf those threads and welcome!

luvya,

kat

Eddie,

Welcome to the Mud! You have been brought here by someone we know as clever, generous, kind, passionate and quick witted. You'll find those qualities to be common around here. Many of the others are better at the welcoming address than I, and will point you to the appropriate threads and practices. I'll just invite you to the tavern for a dram or two and hope you feel at home in one of the best places I've ever been. Cheers, Dave

Easy there, LeeJ, he lives on the West Coast, ya know, they don't rise and shine as early as the rest of us on this continent:-)

I can tell you, he is mostly Irish and while working at the Center, we had all kinds of music, including Masters of the Steel String Guitar, Roy Book Binder, Altan, Queen Ida and her Zydeco Band, oh, and he has a GREAT library. Like a lot of us, I'll think he'll fit right in, even if it is on an infrequent basis; his work keeps him traveling a LOT. It's pretty exciting, he even had to host a bunch of older, wealthy patronesses of good causes on a whitewater raft trip. Ed, my friends, has an adventurous spirit!

Thanks to you all. Keep 'em coming, we'll get him in here, no doubt!

Hi Eddie. I feel it's my duty to let you know that a couple of the supposed "cats" here are actually the monstrous alter-egos of Las Vegas animal trainers Sigfried and Roy! We just don't know which two they are.
Catspaw and his trained possum are a small time local act that play supermarket openings in rural Ohio, and Peter T. is actually B. Traven.
Alan C. has written several books claiming to be the "real" Crocodile Dundee, Dave Swan gets his kicks from sliding down a polished pole (as opposed to an unpolished Latvian), and Bert, is of course the reincarnated spirit of Betrand Russell.
Lonesome EJ is lonesome because he opened his Radio Shack store 457 miles from the nearest customer.
Katlaughing is a figment of our imaginations.
Welcome to our little community.

Eddie, how can I put this? Rick has been sniffing the bottom of Duckboots' duckboots again. Pay him no mind. He means well, but the bucket rattles in the well occasionally. In an earlier incarnation he was Roberta Delmore, the unsung mainstay (until her mainstays came loose) of the Delmore Sisters (the one with the low voice).

BTW: we are at bet's in Colorado and it is a beautiful day. Just getting ready to refill her hottub, which is outside, off her deck. High Rocky Mountain air, sunshine, and tonight, if the water is warm enough, we'll be out there looking up at a zillion, brilliant stars!

Well, Eddie is real! Katlaughing would not lead us astray. Eddie, this is a wonderful site for any lover of "folk music", whatever that is. If you have an opinion about what "folk music" is, then you're even more likely to fit in.

If you have any questions about the genre, they can usually be answered by just creating a new thread. If you are requesting lyrics, type LYR REQ: followed by a title or any words you may remember or the name of the performer, etc. That little bit of information entices people to look.

The 'Cat has failed sometimes. Like recently no one could locate the lyrics to "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean" as performed by Ruth Brown. Ms. Brown was a 1950's precursor to rock and roll, but we tried anyway.

If you want to be a Mudcat hero, you can post those lyrics for us.

AT LAST- an Eddie to welcome!!!

Several years ago, a man had a vision. This man was a computer afficionado who enjoyed playing "God" games- he spent hours playing Sim City and Civilization, but at last he grew bored with those. One night, he awoke from a dream that was more like an incredible vision. He would incorporate his great passions for God Games and Traditional Music into a web site. Over time, he would construct "personalities" to populate this web-site, utilizing them as sources of information for the innocent "lyrics needed" people who accidently stumbled on his site. As time went by, the man was amazed to see his creation take on a life of it's own, with the occasional cyber-voyager not only stumbling onto his site, but staying to participate, actually interfacing with these "personalities". He found himself farther and farther involved in this elaborate game, posting photographs, hiring actors to impersonate these fabricated personalities at face-to-face events. Ultimately, he decided to push the illusion to the limit, creating absurd images no sane person could accept: leafing at random through a dictionary he scribbled words on a sheet of paper- possum, tiple, hoky-poky.

Still, the innocent participants continued, completely unaware that they had arrived at a web-site that, like an elaborate aquarium of exotic tropical fish, kept them captive while furnishing it's creator with an endless source of interest and amusement. Without knowing, they had surfed a network known as the imagination, to a place whose snail mail address is The Twilight Zone .

Eddie (the Baltimore Eddie) is far too modest to tell you much about himself this quickly...so I will. He's truly one of the "good guys" that I know. He has the kind of sense of humour that will serve him well if he meets Catspaw, can pick stringed instruments with the best of 'em, writes like he's been there (cause he's been there) and will never see 40 again. (or maybe 45, or 46, etc.)

I still want to meet the other Eddie though. 'Cause you can never have too many of them.

Leej, that's exactly what I have felt all the time. We are all figments of Max's imagination. Clever programmer, he--creating characters so...well, not exactly lifelike, but possessing enough verisimilitude that if the visitor is willing to suspend disbelief...and these characters have now taken on a very real, if electronic, existence: they can communicate with each other while maintaining their own distinct personalities; hell, they can even create new characters, just as Kat created Eddie. If Max were to shut down the site without turning off the mainframe, he could come back a year later and find that his electronic children had been busy propagating enough others to populate Boston. Why, I'll bet that without outside distractions, the electronic creature known as Katlaughing would actually get the Mudcat book written (but, of course, the cyber world would be just as full of distractions as it is now, making it impossible for any of the characters to act as if they have a day job).

All Right, I'll bring this God Damned thing back up ONE MORE TIME. But that's it Kat! If you can't produce a friend named Eddie, then I'm going to make you one out of leather! It'll be cute, and you can carry it (sorry, him) around with you when you go out into the garden to talk with the fairies.

Hey, Rick! I want one anyway! It'll be like the possum, a one of a kind, put me in touch with those elusive creatures, 'cause even if I talk to them, they don't always answer back, ya know?

T'anks fer bringing it back up. If he doesn't make it in here tomorrow noght, he's a goner. I'm off to put a direct link to this thread in his email....another nudge!

Katlaughing, I think the trick is to lure people in here. You know, tell us a little about them. Does Eddie have a collection of er...rubber squid or something? Of course, if someone told me there were two whole threads about me in here, I'd be in here in a flash, just to make sure someone hadn't unearthed those photos from the 70s! Perhaps threatening his life would work.

Ms. Laughing. NOBODY'S work schedule is THAT hectic! I mean look at us. Do you not think that we also have incredibly busy workloads? Here's Peter T re-writing the classics and going to every bad film in town..AND he's putting in 19 hour days at the Corporate Bird Cage Factory!

And then there's Mick. (is that a Bick in your pocket, or are you just here to light my fire?) He's been slaving 25 hours a day negotiating a settlement between the Wobblies and the IRA. Still he has the time to spell the word Alison in every colour of the rainbow!

Well now, what can we say about Catspaw, other than he's never done a lick of work since 1978! But busy? You bet he's busy. Hauling his little possum ass across international borders isn't busy? Not to mention his other endeavors like building dulcimers from balsa wood, hubcaps and woven nasal mucus. That's a pretty busy boy, and HE still finds time to post one or two things a week!

No, Kat. I'm afraid the sad truth is that Eddie just doen't know how to manage his time properly. I do believe he exists however, the same way I believe the Warren Commission, and that Hillary Clinton is a genius in cattle futures.

When Eddie comes, we'll all be saved... good reference, Peter T.! A man of learning.

The cultural tie-in that this thread brought to my mind was far more pedestrian: there was a song, I don't remember who by, with the simple chorus "These are the Daves I know, I know, these are the Daves I know." The verses are about specific people called Dave.

Anyway, the reason that I bring this up is: we all know an Eddie or two, don't we? Why don't we see how many new Eddies we can bring to be welcomed by this thread. My Eddie (actually Eddy and quite vociferous about it) is really more into computer games than traditional music, but we can squeeze that into the definition of folk somehow, can't we?

Greetings fellow Mudcat-ters - how the hell many of you are there out there?? Took a while but wanted you all to know that Katlaf is not hallucinating - she really does have a friend named Eddie! Delighted in a way that it took me so long to get in the loop - or whatever it is I've gotten myself in to!! Had I dropped in sooner, doubt I would have been treated to several little poems and related good tidings I found reading all of these threads (yup, took a while but I just read every one of them). Now I understand why Katlaf hooked me up - knowing as she does that I am a bit, well, unusual and that finding like-minded characters here in ethereal Northern CA is a genuine challenge, she thought she'd introduce me to some equally unusual (OK, in a couple of cases - and you know who you are - even more unusual) characters in cyberspace! In any event, wanted to at least assure all those doubters out there that the Katlaf speaks only truth - she told me to tell you all that or I'd be in serious trouble!! Henceforth (see, he uses big words too), I shall be known in the Mudcat Tavern (I'll yake two very dry martinis, shaken not stirred, two olives) as Figment, as a reminder to those Katlaf doubters out there, whereever in the world that may be!!

Hey there Katlaffin -- Catspaw doan seem to be a doin nun too well an me an Paw are right worried boutim. He even leff the puter on the net thing right here at Mudcat an jes ambled off. See howz it wuz wuz that after a real long day of kleenin cars and the camper an sech he tole us to git the hell out, but Karen wuz bein mighty nice to us which aint happint since that time when we wuz playin sink the cheerios in the downstairs bath......Paw,Buford,the Reg boys an me wuz jes tryin to help out on potty trainin lil Tris, but I doan think she liked it nun. Anyways she givvus sum cheescake stuff an summa Catspaw's Ale-8-One an thanked usns fer helpin out sum today. Bout that time Catspaw come outa the puter room alookin real pale and peekid like.

We all followed him out a figgerin that mebbe he's a havin some more problems like last May, but heez been active an real healthy actin like an that aint it. He tuk that clay possum and that seaweed he got from the Reg boys' half brother, yall know, that Fielding feller...an went out an set hissef down in front uv some plants in the dried out backyard. Furs, ol Buford aks him what wuz a goin on but since Catspaw wuz purty well pissed off at him anyways, after he an the Reg boys whittled up some whimmiediddles outta some piece a wood in Catspaw's shop. He sed it wuz some fancy ass kinda rosewood and real spensiv, kokobolo ur sumpin like that. We dint know you cud git wood from roses, but Catspaw bilds right purty dulseemors and I gess he knows whut heez talkin bout. Anyhowz he tole em all ta go piss up a slack rope an they were a layin out in his front yard a tryin, but the sheriff jes now druv up an I reckon heez a takin em off. Catspaw's gonna be madder than chicken with the shits when he finds out about it. But Paw an me are real worried bout what it is Catspaw's a doin out back and so I thought mebbe y'all might have some idee on it.

See cuz then when me an Paw aks him, he sez he's havin communion with ferrys ur sumpin. All we know fer shure like is that heez a settin there mumblin bout figs ur sumpin an blowin up that possums ass an rattlin that seaweed thing. Paw sez ta say that mebbe he's takin communion with fairies. We jes doan unnerstan a damn thing he's a doin and Karen calt the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed bout gittin him fixed up. We uz hopin yall might help out Katlaffin sins yall are buddies an all, an this all started after he red yur message.

Paw's gonna keep an eyeball on him whilst I see if Karen'll lemme use the shower sinz I bin itchin bad roun my privates.

Dearest Cletus, my dear Cletus,

It is a good thing you wrote to me for advice. C'spaw has entered an alternative realm of possibility which means the chances of him ever coming back into this dimension are limitless. I don't think it will do any good for Karen to contact the NYCFTTS, as they are not equipped to handle such contact with persons afflicted by figmentosus faerius. This is serious. It is important that none of you startle Spaw while he is in this state, nor while he is in any other state, including A-hia. The best thing you can do is walk away, very softly, without turning your back to him. Don't scratch, either, because just that little annoyance may set him off.

Tell Karen, the poor woman, she should set out his favourite dish on the hearth, tonight, along with his favourite ale or other drink. Surround that with photographs of his favourite people and places, esp. that one of Cleigh O'Possum in his international diplomatic role...you know, the one where he so graciously allowed that foreigner, Fielding, to blow up his derriere. Hopefully when he focuses his eyes on these familiar sites, he will warp left, spiral up, and touch down in this dimension.

It is obvious he has suffered from a total shift in reality. What he thought existed does not, for him, and what he believed to be a figment has been made manifest. As his was such a doubting nature coupled with hostility, it could be that he is faking this whole episode of figmentosus dementia for fear that he will be offered a plate of black feathers and various other avian delights. If this proves to be the case.....scratch away, call in the boyz, let them at the rosewood, Holly-wood, and any other wood he has, tell Karen to take away the goodies. When he's had enough isolation, he'll come round and you'll see, he'll be his old self in no time.

Now, on the other hand, if he really is suffering from an afflication of communicado faerio, you will need to send me a prepaid, round trip airline ticket, as well as one to various other members of our Crack Tipling Possum Intervention Team. It will be necessary for us to perform not only an exorcism of all spirits ale, but also to confiscate the religious icon he seems to have become so orally fixated on. It could get ugly, his head may do a 180 on his body. Best that Karen take the little boyz and go back to Kentuck for the duration. We will see what we can do. Send the Big Boyz to lay in a good supply of provisions, install heavy duty locks on all the windows and doors, and prepare to guard against interruptions while we plunge the depths of the Psyche That Was Spaw. You will also have to send a ticket to Fast Eddie, as Spaw will have to be confronted with the reality of his existence, surreal or not, alternative dimension or not.

Until we can determine the best course of action, I remain your only alternative to real life,

katlaughingallinyourhead, PhD Faerius Figmentosus
