Subject: RE: Where have the American Mud-Catters gone
From: Elmer Fudd
Date: 20 Dec 06 - 02:12 AM

We're looking for it.

AMERICA by Paul Simon

Let us be lovers well marry our fortunes together
I've got some real estate here in my bag
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies
And we walked off to look for America

Kathy, I said as we boarded a greyhound in Pittsburgh
Michigan seems like a dream to me now
It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw
I've gone to look for America

Laughing on the bus
Playing games with the faces
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera

Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat
We smoked the last one an hour ago
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine
And the moon rose over an open field

Kathy, I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping
I'm empty and aching and I dont know why
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
They've all gone to look for America
All gone to look for America
All gone to look for America

Who the flip cares where the flip they went? Them Americans have stole great things from Canada, eh? They stole hockey! They stole the STanlyey Cup. They stole Neil Young!!! Then they stole Wayne flippin' Gretzky!!! That was the last flippin' straw, eh? As far as I am conserned they can all go flip themselves sideways from Sunday. All they got is money but no class, eh? Plus their president is a total dipwad! He is so famous for the really really dumb things he has said, like..."I regret that I ain't got one life to give for my flippin' country!"

And there was another thing he said once. "Who spiked the flippin' pretzels?"

So, like, if they stay away I ain't gonna cry no tears, know'm sayin'?

p.s. Rapaire is the biggest dipwad of ALL! Worse than Bush. And Rapaire is a fippin' Ay-merican from "I da Hoe". That syas it all, eh?

I'm still here, though it has been somewhat sporadic. When my husband retired, he totally took over the computer, and I practically have to beg to check my email. I have finally succumbed and agreed to a laptop for Christmas--I don't like using them, but will learn, I guess. This means I get his old one and he gets a new one at the Mac Fair in January. That's fine--I don't need anything fancy.

Also, I have been spending my limited time on another forum, totally different topic. I have found there are trolls everywhere--just ignore 'em.

Most of the time I'm not aware of where the posts come from - the content is sometimes national, and that I suppose is mostly UK (festival and club news etc.)

The best thing about the Web is the WW part. I don't feel separated from my friends in the USA, or Germany, or Canada, or Australia.

Mudcat is America's best invention.

Hi, Gypsy! I know what you mean about the trolling. Hope you join in more, now.

johnhenry'shammer, welcome to the Mudcat. I think most of us felt that way, at first. Please feel free to join in, start a new thread, or what hev you. Many of your favourites that you listed have been subjects, here. If you use the search box at the top, you can find old threads about most of them. They are some of my favs, too.

BTW, I am on the Western Slope. Nice to see another Coloradoan on here!

Still here in the New Jersey. Many of those who seem to know each other began by jumping on a thread and joining on in. Over the years we've gotten to know each other and many of us have arranged to meet over the last few years. Some of those meetings have led to some amazing music. Some to side splitting laughs. Some both at the same time.

Goodness knows there are still an awful lot of 'catters on my wish to meet list...next year

I'm here in Denver. I don't post too much because there seem to be a whole lot of threads about obscure Irish groups I've never heard of and sea chantey groups and all that. I listen to more Guthrie, Dylan, Seeger, Ochs, Van Ronk, Lunsford, Skip James, Son House, John Hurt, Blind Willie Johnson, and more of that kind of thing so I only see limited opportunities to say anything. It also sometimes seems like everybody knows eachother in the real world and so I feel like I'm crashing the party sometimes. I guess that's that.

In the Northeast we're all still here & I just came back from a nice singing session. I'd say that at least 4 catters were there, a slow nite but tomorrow I'll probably be seeing & singing with maybe 1/2 a dozen from Maine, better than 1/2 dozen from New Hampshire & maybe another 1/2 dozen from the Cape Ann/Glouchester, Mass area at the monthly shanty session. We'll be at the Press Room in Portsmouth (US).
What would it be like if all the North American catters moved to Long Island? We'd be acting like the Brits. I'm green with envy. I can't imagine, how delightful. I'll move if the rest will.

Another American Mudcatter signing in.

**

richlmo, here's a Blues thread that started in 1998 and was just recently revived:

Favorite Blues Songs

thread.cfm?threadid=3748&messages=47

-snip-

And since I'm here, I'm gonna say this:

I figure if folks want to have more discussions about Blues
and other types of music that fall in to an [expanded?] category of folk music than we either have to refresh old threads and/or start new threads on those subjects. And we have to join in the discussion on those threads. If we don't do this, then there's no sense of complaining about the fact that there's so few threads about Blues.

In the same token, if Americans ["UnitedStaters"] start fewer threads than other folks, then it's on us to change that if we want things to change.

Of course, "the more the merrier" [threads] isn't always the best & the most interesting or the most witty [wittiest? sp?]

Be that as it may or may not be,

Best wishes,

Azizi

I tend to post at least once, every day. Things really are different over here. No sense posting a concert in Wyoming... it's 2,000 miles away from me. We're spread out, if not spaced out.
There's a lot of news about local events in England that make perfect sense over your way that would make no sense over here.

I don't mind the imbalance, if you folks don't. There's still more than enough to keep my interest.
