how long is a piece of string? I saw the wish list and it was an awful lot of money. Judging by the results, a much faster mudcat I would say it has been reasonably successful. I don't know how successful it has been, perhaps Max will update us when he gets back from his hols in the maldives ;o)

The committed have committed.

Perhaps this thread should vanish....It was CLEARLY indentified..."major fund raising" would start in January 2013....

What was requested...was a "triage transfusion" of funds to push Mudcat beyond the immediate "fiscal cliff". The faithful came foreward....in a time of crisis.

Expect to hear the true trumpet call for resources in the new year.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

i used to think mudcat was vasluable, but the hard right turn of many, including some moderators has disillusioned me on that score.

the turning point for me came from two issues. an idiot poster from britian was accusing acadiens of stealing indian land(apparantly ignoring the english ethnic cleansing of acadiesn
and the english ethnic cleansing of the same natives, including putting bounties in their scalps). and the toleration and constant defense of a nazi folk singer who used to sing his hitler youth songs at the vancouver folk song society.

i already knew the english and many american and canadian anglos were biased against the gaels, and ignore that genocide, but i was used to that. but i expected folk singers to stand up against nazis and to condemn racist attacks on acadiens(one of the most peacefull people on earth at the time).

well i no longer think mudcat deserves any money from me. nothing provoded by mudcat is worth the toleration of racism genocide ans bigotry.

i really expected the nazi tolerance to shock and horrify people. instead they seemd to think he was such a nice war criminal . someone you could trust with your children and who sang so sweetly==if you weren't jewish or roma, or homosexual.

mudcat is way too juch a haven for racists and right wing kooks.what happened to folk music?

I've not been active on Mudcat for a while but I do use the database occasionaly and find some of the posts interesting, but the Folk World would be worse off without it, so donation made via paypal.

Ollaimh : Interesting what you've said, when I get a chance I'll look into the history of what your talking about. I certainly wouldn't support any kind of racism etc.

Best Wishes for Christmas to you all

ollaimh - Would it be correct to infer that by the name you are claiming a connection with an ancient irish mystic/doctor? The bitterness you hold in your head has no way forward, you need to move on. The way forward is by way of truth and reconciliation.....followed by a firm commitment not to repeat the wrongs of the past. Now, what of the gael's? are you suggesting that they are without blame for any atrocities that may have happened in the past? You are a hypocrite if you believe they didn't...........so ......... lets live and let live Forgive and remember that one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter and any violence is abhorrent.

Q... more pennies are required. Or, at least I assume so. The costs stated by Max above are a heck of a lot more then it used to take to run this puppy when I and John (Giok) and Kendall and... and a half dozen others were the major and almost only by percentage contributors.

Seriously, years ago, it only cost Max a portion of what it costs today to maintain a reasonably accessible website. But, the price of food had 4Xd so there it is.

Update? The update is Max is a great guy as he has proven this over the years by providing an amazing website dedicated to freedom of expression with only ONE rule.

If yee 'users' haven't, cough up some coin... it's the best site on the internut.

Update on Bobert art prints...

I need 10 folks to step up and commit to buying one of a limited edition (10 numbered prints) to afford to have them printed... All the profits will go the Max, or approximately $600...

Janie is #1...

If you were to purchase a signed, limited print of this quality it would run you 5 times this much... Maybe more...

Sorry. But I won't raise my BP to dangerous levels just to give money. I like Mudcat. I visit moderately often.

And WTF are the hats? I have been bitchin about this for years and others have chimed in.

I haven't sent in straight cash for yearsssss. I figured the auction was the way to go. Even when I didn't want stuff but knew others did I outbid everyone and sent it to the person who really wanted it. Youse know who you are. I think the auction could do even better if people... hmmmm... best left unsaid.

I'll just say this... there are a lot of great musicians herein who cannot afford to put their wares in the auction for less than cost. You do the math when a fund drive is the goal. Not everyone can be as generous as Deb C when this drive started.

Once again... thanks Deb. Ya done good by all of us. (Still enjoyin yer tunes.)

I have just chipped in a tenner which I would have only spent in the approved folk fashion - on beer and loose women. It's not much but I think there's a possibility that if everyone tossed in a couple of pounds or dollars every time they found a song or a piece of information they really wanted on this site then we could keep it going until "fishes fly and swallows die".
I make this posting not to boast of my generosity (which is paltry compared with what some people are doing) but to put this thread up near the top where it belongs.

Nice to see people care enough to keep it up.

I am reminded of past "fund drives" over the past dozen years. The first one that springs to mind, for good reason, was started by Spaw, I seem to recall. If he didn't actually start it, he sure drove it with his offbeat, some might even say absolutely twisted, sick, oft obscene.... AHEM!, sense of humour. I dare say his "prodding" had a LOT to do with the success of that and other fund drives.

I stick my oar in... here's what cha could do
Ya get an old billboard and paint it all blue
And ya moan 'bout the Mudcat, how it's gettin' all old,
And if folks want to see it keep going, send gold.

Or, here's another little shameful tune,
Tell everybody you might shut down soon,
And you know this is one very fine collection of stuff
And if it goes away, that would really be ruff,
So if folks want it, they can have it, for about one cab fare,
They can buy a CD with the whole shebang on there.

Cheers
