Well, couple things...

First of all I'm a little concerned that my vasectomy need maintenance??? I mean, I thought it was good fir life??? But now it looks as if I gotta re-up... That is bothersome... I mean, they said it was a piece of cake the last time but...

...the day I went to get it there was a bomb threat at the clinic and then, rather than have one nurse oversee the doctor doin' the chop on poor ol' mee it seems like every danged nurse within a hundred miles was in there and...

...well, when yer about to get "chopped" ain't like Mr. Happy is too happy... No, might of afct, he's purdy unhappy and you know what that means??? Yeah, friggin' shrinkage!!!

Now here I was with what looked like a couple hundred womenz watchin' an' all I could think was, "This is purdy dfanged embarassin'... I mean, come on Mr. Happy... Just do a little poke yer head up but, no!!! He just pouted and there were probably a couple hundred women who went home that day thinkin', "Glad to be going home to Ralph or Charlie or..."

Then they said that in a day 'er two the pain a swelling would go away... Bull!!! It was two friggin' weeks!!!

I don't want to talk about this no more so if I gotta go fir a maintance procedure then count me out... If it's so wonderful then whoever thinks its a great idea can just go in fir me...

Well in the hospital the docs sewed him back on .. Well while he was a healin Mr. Happy swelled up to the size of a horses Mr. Happy ... well I tell ya there was a line of nurses coming in every 5 minutes to check the surgery ... I could hear them laughin in the hall about the mammoth size Mr. Happy on the guy in room 202.   Well anyway he claims it healed up and works fine but his wife was disappointed it didn't stay that size

Amos...damn, that stuff is good! I didn't know until now that The Rose was supposed to be a cowboy song. I was trying to think who, of the "known" voices I was hearing; not to take away from the fact that you have your own voice, and do it your way, but I think I heard something of John Stewart.

I think maybe the world needs to hear a bit of Amos and Dan harmonizing.

Nothing to be shy about bro, You earned it ...

see when anyone is given a gift of music, folks can come out of the closet and more importantly , can do some good things with it. A few weeks ago I sold over 2000 dollars in CD's. The songs I wrote so I would not step on anyone's license. Every single penny went to the food pantry that was running pretty low because of the state of our economy and the mass of people in need. It wasn't at all about me, it was about them ... When folks are given a gift of music ... you can do some really good things with it ... right ... so come out of the closet folks and get playing ... but get playing for someone else ... ok .. you can do a lot of good things for others with your music. And this place is full of great music writer, performers and everything else in between ...

I'm just tired of people telling someone to get their "butt" over somewhere when they actually mean they want the whole person over there. I don't understand this fixation on butts that has taken over the American vernacular. It's stupid. Same goes for the popular expression "kick ass", which is even stupider.

"Metonymy" is the word you're looking for, Little Hawk. It's a figure of speech, the use of the name of one thing for that of another of which it is an attribute or with which it is associated. Butt for body, crown for the king, sails for ship, etc.

Dan, you're not the only one getting travel advice and planning via Mudcat members this year. After all, a few of them have managed to arrange to ship Max over to England for a visit.

Amos, the songs sound great!

Well, now, that was fun. I sat here and listened to every Amos song Dan posted. Good stuff. I know most of the songs but there are several unfamiliar ones that are haunting. 'Kind of Love', for instance- I could look it up, no doubt, but it's more fun to ask: Where does that song come from? In certain settings and after a glass or two that one would be a first rate tear jerker. No regrets but some things you never forget...

Amos, I listened to it only once so on second listen I might change my mind but I thought 'The Rose' had a bit of a shaky start. But when you got into it, it was superb. I really like your interpretation.

Little Hawk has never kicked ass, or he would understand the exquisite appropriateness of that particular metonymy. "Reading Shakespeare", "counting heads", "turning loose a bunch of suits", "London reports panic..." are all examples of the same poetic license.

Bobert, a vasectomy ain't no piece of cake (though it is a slice of something). Ain't it nice to know how ya made all them nurses 'preciate what they got waitin' fer 'em at home, though?

...

An' if the butt bone's connected to the finger bones, is that how some people keep pulling songs out'n they arses?

But Hawk is right. I mean I could say my arthritis is a pain in the ass, but it's mostly in my fingers.

OldDude, I've never known Amos to hide under the radar, but it's really great to get that talent on a real live CD!

These recordings are wonderful, Amos. They display your excellent voice and geetar skills very well, and I really appreciate the variety of songs you chose for the CD.

Do send me a copy. (I'll PM you the address.) And I'll either send a check to the Mudcat Home For the Blues Impaired (or one of the other 'Cat charities) or make the payment via plastic if that's allowed.

I am not sure what the Mudcat channels are for support contriubutions. I believe they take PayPal and Joe might be able to provide other details. I have a copy ready for you!

Thank you all for the kind and heart-warming remarks.

Thanks, Amos.   

I hope you'll send the lyrics & chords to some of those songs to the Balboa Park Jam crowd too so we can jam with you on them too.

I'll send a check to Dick or Max, since I don't do PayPal.

When I hear Amos play and sing I'm reminded of Cisco Houston. That's good company.

But it's time Amos got off his lazy duff and made another recording.

I agree, Charlie... Seems that ever since they set up pot stores on every corner in Amos's neighborhood that the boy, ahhhhh, how do you put this??? Okay, he'd rather just "ay around the shanty and put a good buzz on"... I mean, I can't blame him... Heck, if they had pot stores here in Virginia I might do the same but...

...alas...

But seriously, Amos... Get back to doin' a little recordin'... Heck, I even plan of puttin' in some studio time this comin' winter so if I can do it, so can you... Ya hear???

Don't forget, you can also hear some "Amos Mudcat" songs on the Mudcat CD Samplers that one of our dedicated members (whos initials are A J) so tirelessly worked to put together.   I know there are at least 2 of his original songs on those CDs.

Bobert:

Back when I released the Mudcat CDs I put little messages all over the Cat telling people to Flood Dick Greenhaus with orders for the Mudcat CDs, see. The slogan of the campaign was "FLOOD DICK!"

I thought it was clever, anyway...


Now I am not so sure.

Nah, I ordered it... I remember sending in a song fir it... I think it got put on there... I had allready kinda left cutsie folk music in the past but didn't want to send in anything that I was currently doin' at the time for fear of being put out of Mudville...lol... So I picked a smalzty folk song I wrote a long and recorded a long, long time ago thinkin' that that would be more appropriate... Should have sent some Mississippi style blues... Next time...

Maybe it is time for a 'next time'. We have more members and there are some who never got on the first time.

I think the technology's advanced enough by now that putting together more Mudcat CD samplers would be a good deal easier than when you did the first batch, Amos. (E.g., not too many people would be sending you tapes.)

I"m not 'volunteering' you for the principal engineer & promoter though. : D

I'm hardly ever on the 'cat anymore but couldn't resist this thread. As his younger sister, I am Amos' first and original fan, and I hope that I have all his CDs although I don't think I have the one "for Dan" because I don't think I have "Buffalo Skinners." Amos & I had a grandfather who was a folksinger & and engineer, and I'm proud to say that my own son is also a folksinger -- seems to be at least partly genetic. One family myth has it that among Amos' very first words were "Jimmy Crack Corn." Anyway, within our family, the arrival of Amos means the party has started. It always has. He has a lot of other great qualities, too.

Love you tons, bro -- Deda

No???

Deda,
"Jimmy crack corn" may well have been among Amos's first words, but I suspect the very first ones were something like "ba ba ba bop, doo-de-wah-dee-wah-dee wah, sha na na nah!"

Oh, and really nice to "see" you again here at the 'cat!

Many thanks, Genie -- Our mother used to say that every baby's firs word was "eglise" -- French for church. If you say it a few times in a row it does sound like babytalk.

Where is the old reprobate, anyway? Is the Getaway under way? (or is that under weigh?)
