Subject: MUDCAT PLEDGE DRIVE-Will Mudcat Survive2
From: catspaw49
Date: 19 May 01 - 03:14 PM

Before we start a Permathread on the various ways you can help support Mudcat, I thought we would be better off to continue this "Pledge Drive" on a separate thread. The original thread is located HERE-"Will Mudcat Survive" Take a minute and read through it.

SOME IMPORTANT POINTS FROM THE OTHER THREAD---You are not required in any way to pledge anything! There is no membership fee at the 'Cat and there never should be. Otherwise we would not serve our purpose and visitors wouldn't be asking for help...and often becoming members in the process. Membership is FREE!

But Max supports this site out of his own pocket and though some of us kick in some money now and then, it doesn't cover the cost. As you can read in the other thread in Max's message, were Mudcat to stand alone, it would cost about $400.00 per month. Mudcat gets a percentage of everything sold at it's sponsor sites IF we use the "Support the Mudcat" logo to access them.....that's the catfish jumping out of the banjo at the top of the page...just click it. Sandy Paton at Folk Legacy and Dick Greenhaus at Camsco also participate. This all adds up but it should be the icing on the cake. To be sure the cake is here to ice, we need a guaranteed $400/month to Max.

People need to understand, that while water itself is free, we still have to pay for the sanitation and the plumbing to put it into our taps. It is ludicrous that Max should have to bankrupt himself for an ideal that so many, many people are sharing in and deriving pleasure from. Time to ante up.

Do you need to pledge? Of course not. However, if you can see your way clear to come up with One dollar a month........Three dollars a month........Five, Ten, Fifteen, or Twenty a month....PLEDGE THAT YOU WILL SEND THAT AMOUNT TO MUDCAT CENTRAL!!! You can pay monthly, quarterly,annually....JUST MAKE THE PLEDGE AND FOLLOW THROUGH!!!!!

I have had a number of PM's from 'Catters saying they will pledge but don't want the dollar amount or perhaps their names made public.....That's just fine!!! for some of you, you may want to just post to this thread with $$$ signs only. The amount is between you and Max. JUST MAKE THE PLEDGE!!!!!!!! We're tired of the bi-monthly things to score a few bucks....I think we're all tired of that..........SO LET'S JUST DO IT!!!! Make a pledge of any amount per month (others already have....see the other thread)be it from One to Twenty per month....or even more if you actually have it. Let's just make this a one-time thing (until nest year) and we will all know the 'Cat will be available and free for all to use.

So let's cough it up......get the gelt to Mudcat!!! Plus, you'll feel good for doing it!

PLEDGING TO MUDCAT IS LIKE PISSING IN VELVET UNDERWEAR............YOU GET A WARM, FUZZY, FEELING!!!

And now back to our big feature, "The Virtues of Blowing Up A Possum's Ass."

Some questions have come up regarding payment procedures from overseas or on-line accounts and the secure server. We'll work them all out and post the info and PM it als if needed.

MAKE YOU PLEDGE AND WE"LL WORK IT OUT!

If you're comfortable with giving a dollar figure, please do so and don't be embarassed at a dolla am month! It's all important!!! It all adds up. If not, just the $ will do.

AT THIS POINT I FIGURE WITH THE PM'S AND ALL WE SHOULD BE UP TO $1800.00!!!!!!!! FAR OUT HUH????

To answer Jande's question about a Mudcat account to have direct deposits go in from our own online accounts. From my experience, one doesn't need a specific account at Mudcat to deposit to. If you look at my posting about online banking in the other thread, I explain how you can just go to your online banking service and put Mudcat in as a Payee, then set the amount and frequency of payments and your bank will automatically send out a check to Mudcat at those times your indicate, in the amount you tell them. You just have to remember to deduct it every month from your bank account!:-)

Hope that helps,

kat

Amergin just had a great suggestion...besides this pledging of consistent donations, we can also think about offering something, like PBS does, for certain amounts, i.e. a cap for $15, mug for $10...NOW, I realise we don't all have caps and mugs, BUT as individuals we do have other things, like CDS, etc. so....as another way to bring in more icing, let's think about this, too, without taking away from this BLAST FOR CASH at the moment.

I just want to add my 2 cents to what Spaw and kat have said.

The amount you pledge or send in a lump sum is of no interest to anyone. If you agree that you derive a lot of pleasure, and learn a lot by usinging the Mudcat, you owe it to yourself to support it.

This isn't a campaign started by Max. It was started by some members that responded to a thread that was posed, I believe (and forgive me if I'm wrong) by Lonesome E. J.

He had heard Max utter an aside that because his business was not doing well, it might be difficult to keep the Mudcat going. All of the background is covered in that thread, and I won't repeat it here.

The amount required to ensure Mudcat's continued existence is very modest when you think about it. We only have to raise $4,800 and if a majority of mudcatters respond, it won't require a burdensome donation on any one person's part.

Pledge today, will you? Or send Max a check at the address listed in kat's posting above.

Thanks!

DougR

OK, sign me up for $10/month, payable quarterly. I've just asked for my online banking service to add Mudcat as a payee and will transmit my 1st quarter payment as soon as that happens (or will snail mail a check if there's any snafu). Thanks, Max for Mudcat and thanks to the pledge drive organizers for keeping this in front of us in a much less intrusive way than my local NPR station.

And, 'Spaw, the 'permathread' thing to keep the support options in front of us is a great idea too. Although I was aware of the option to click on various sales sites through Mudcat (and have done so on numerous occasions) I was unaware of Bron's CD until now. It's be good to know of ways we can support Mudcat and feed our habit as well.

Peaked caps. YEAH BABY !!!! All us bald guys need peaked caps. GOTTA HAVE ONE !!! I was going to order some Tshirts, but if baseball type caps are on the way, hold the phone !!!

As well, if Max can somehow set it up, or one of the Canucks can, A.J.M. Headwear of Canada makes excellet hats. I use their hats for my company and get a local company to silk screen them. Perhaps one of the Canucks of good standing can offer them within Canada so we don't have to fiddle with all the extra charges, duty and BS ?

I'm going to try to quiet down now, and go back to my usual, reserved self. It's not too good when gnus get excited, especially after imbibing too many brews while watching Team Canada trounce the Eagles 19 to 10 in the Pan-Ameriacn Rugby Championships. Paraguay is next !

I'm in for my pledge, a calendar ( even though I THINK it gets delivered as an email file which I have to print out on my crappy, six year old printer, right ? .. never really understood how it worked ) a tee shirt, and at least several caps - if we can work out this Canadian "contribution" to the effort.

Please don't hesitate to get a calendar AND a T-shirt, AND Bron's CD....call Max, he can work it out with Canajun francs or whatever you have up thar!**BG**

(We've talked hats before...but don't think we ever did them, so really, after we get the $4,800...I think it'd be neat if we could work on things like that, too.)

Thank you! After watching your special "The Mating Habits Of Geriatric Folkies", I made an appointment with my doctor, joined a health club, and began a Guinness free diet. I have already lost 5# and most of the more embarrassing side effects of the Guinness.
Please accept my monthly pledge ($$$) as a token of my gratitude.

It is svelte of you to have made such a pledge, SINSULL. (Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.) Anyhow, I hereby publicly commend you for your having shed the five pounds. I will sweeten your weight loss by pledging to pay the Mudcat a lump sum of a minimum of $5.00 for every pound you lose between now and December 31st of this year. I reserve the right to increase the amount as circumstances allow; but promise to not decrease it.

Folks, for the price of a single Guinness out of your monthly allotment, you could be of immense help to the Mudcat. Please give what you can.

Soooo.... Does the velvet underwear come with the Mudcat logo emblazoned on the fanny? And does this have anything to do with Sinsull's "embarrassing effects of Guinness"? Is this a realm into which we need not go? OK...

Now look what you guys have done; I've become virtually addicted to this vast expanse of silliness, and may actually have to shell out for another "fix"!
Despite all the gingham dog & calico cat shredding we regularly inflict on one another on those "BS" threads, I have grown perversely attached to the overwhelming majority of Mudcatters, and life here would surely be diminished should the matriculum of this ecclectic, madcap fellowship ever be broken.

As a burned-out, part time lanternmaker at 8 bucks an hour (non-Union, obviously) I won't be a major factor... but I'll do what I can. Jeeez; keep it up, guys!

Well, here we are in our second day of fundraising and at last total we'd reached our half-way mark, as far as I remember. It being Sunday morning and all, we might find things slowed down a bit, but we are expecting an upsurge when the UK bunch get back form Yorkshire, is it? Also, when the Paltalk crew get going.

Just think, we could wrap this up by tonight, have a complete year's worth of operating expenses covered by the end of today and make the Mudcat secure in our lives for that whole year!

You've all been doing a fantastic and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, but especially those who've ben pitching in here at Pledge Drive Central answering PM's, sending out notes, refreshing the threads and generally pausing for the cause.

Aw, Sins, that's the spirit, put off the evils of thy demanding flesh womon and be PUR-EE-FIED!! That's it, Sister Sins, you can experience the Great and Powerful Effects of the Rarified and Holy Water of the Mudcat Aquifer just down from the NYCFTTS.

Why it is THE purest, the cleanest, the closest thing to the Nectar of the Gawds that we could ever hope to attain here, on this Blighted Earth of Fleshly Pleasures. The Dark reaches of the Arches of Gold, the Kings of Your Way, those bastions of Buns of Ses-a-mee have NOTHING, I say NOTHING to offer you compared to the HOLY WATER OF THE MUDCAT AQUIFER. So lay down your putrid browns of colas, your sizzling snort up your nose pops, whether clear or dark....your bones will be FREE and you can LIVE AGAIN through the POWER and WONDER of the Mudcat Aquifer's HOLY WATER!! And, let you say to those who claim you are bitchie, to those headaches of Sinsfull need, BEGONE! GET THEE BEHIND ME!! For today I am FREE and forever shall be!! Amen, Amen, Amen!

*

*If all else fails, just tell everyone you are going to be a hermit for a week or two; draw the blinds; put on some soothing music and sweat it out! **BG**

Uncle Jaque, it's a niner and the check should be made out to the Mudcat Cafe, as far as I know. If you click on the fish jumping out of the banjo, up top, and scroll down to Max's message, it should say for sure, but that's what I always make mine out to and so far they've been cashed!:-) THANKS!

GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!!!!!!

SINSULL GIVES UP PEPSI FOR MUDCAT!!!!!!! Way to go girl........and the'Cat is purring and burping it's thanks!!!

Right now I have our crack team of auditors from the the firm of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe working on the updated figures and we'll be giving you an update within the hour!!! We have so many kicking in for CD's and the auction and supporting the Mudcat in many ways that this Pledge Drive is doing MULTIPLE duty!!!

LET'S KEEP THE $$$$ PLEDGES COMING GANG.......CAN YOU IMAGINE MAX WHEN HE RETURNS THE FIRST OF THE WEEK???

Once again, it was NOT Max who started this idea or even asked about such a thing. Mudcat has become an integral and important part of his life and he will keep it going even if there were none of this going on. But Mudcat has become an integral part of many of our lives too and the things we have learned, shared, and taught each other and the emotions of both sorrow and laughter have made this community far from virtual and instead, a very real place. We too have a vested interest in the continuing health of the Mudcat Cafe.

Some have given large amounts, some small, some in-between and it doesn't matter where you fall in that or the amount of your pledge. What is important is to keep the access to and the membership in the Mudcat Cafe FREE!!! It is a great musical resource and a fine collection of friends.......mostly screwballs, but what do you expect???

LET'S MAKE THE GOAL NOW !!!!

Spaw

I love it. Rog thinks I should write an article about our Pledge Drive to "save our dotcom". He thinks we are on the cutting edge of what could become a trend! Hey, Spaw, you and me could make some bucks! Farming our services out...course it might not work as well if'n we didn't believe in the cause and have that community thing going, huh? Oh well, back to busking or somethin'...:-)
