Just saw this. I got no job, no money, and gigs a few and far between lately. But I just put 2 of my Cds up for auction. All the money will come here should anyone want to buy them.

Okay, okay. Let's slow down on the donations, eh? I mean, if people just keep sending in money willy-nilly, Spaw won't need to come in here like he did on other passed fund raisers and kick some ass. Trust me, it's fun. He has a unique way of kicking ass.

Hmmm... an auction? Highest bidder gets Spaw to deliver a serious ass kickin in the winning bidder's name to all the deadbeats who "use" this sight and can afford to donate a donut or two but don't ?

Yeahhhh... I agree... dumb idea. Spaw will do it anyway if he feels the need. Soooo, donate outright and bid in the auction as per your ability and as per your appreciation of the BEST, bar none, site on the internet. The musical community is top notch and the freedom of speech Max is dedicated to preserving, both above and below the line, at many costs to him over these years of his service to all of us, in the way he does, is unequalled as far I know.

OK, dunnit by credit card following the GBP button: although a Paypal screen comes up in parallel, I don't think it means that you're paying via Paypal. I used to have a Paypal account but then got a lot of scammy emails about "updating your account" so lost faith in it: I couldn't be sure if I was getting genuine emails or spoof/phishing ones!
I was first introduced to Mudcat by the guy who was recording my son and his band: I said something about wanting to get the lyrics of a song I liked, and the guy said "Try Mudcat" - sure enough I got them!
So this must be about 12-13 years ago: thanks Mudcat!

Max
I buy from Amazon.co.uk
there are two conflicting decisions
1) Is Amazon.co.uk included in the deal?
2) they are stingy on the old corporation tax here in the UK.

Tough decision when choosing a vendor, need data.

FWIW most things sold on Amazon.co.uk can be found cheapest via amazon direct. Tells the story very succinctly.

Some might disagree with the title of the diet Beer. As some might have reecognized the logo on the tee in that pic as the Budweiser logo. But, the Bud Diet worked... 110 pounds. Doesn't work for everyone, tho... some drink the beer and then don't give a hoot if they are fat. >;-)

I'd like to make a contribution, but I'm a bit skint.

What I do have is a couple of books. A copy of 'Real Sailor Songs' by John Ashton, and a signed copy of 'Shanties from the Seven Seas' by Stan Hugill.

I'm not sure if it is worth anyone's while buying them, as the freight is likely to be impressive, they are fairly heavy and I live in New Zealand. Does anyone want to comment?

So, Max, how about a progress report? Has enough been raised to keep Mudcat going for awhile, and if so, an estimate on how long that might be? Obviously this fundraising is going to have to take place from time to time, but it would be heartening to hear a time frame for how long it can keep going on what is raised, realizing of course that unexpected and expensive things do sometimes happen!

Meanwhile, I wonder if money would be saved in the long run if ugly non-music threads where people are insulting one another could be cut off with "Sorry, we don't have the electricity for this."

Could the links to the amazon pages where Mudcat gets a cut be added to QuickLinks?
