Paddy, don't you mean Cherry Garcia?

"What in the world ever became of Sweet Jane?
She lost her figure, you know she isn't the same
Livin on cake, banana cream pie, and koolaid
All a friend can say is ain't it a shame"

I thought the same thing Jeri...great job paddymac!!!

I'm stealing it immediately.

This needs to enter the Mudcatters jargon....but again, this is a folk site so paddy, we're all going to forget you started it and if you're asked, say you heard it somewhere, but you're not sure where. Also, tell anyone who asks that you had no monetary thing in this at all and that in the most part, you use traditional 'Cat jargon and are trying to pass it on to the next generation of Mudcatteers intact as part of their heritage.

Paddymac, in case your wondering why no one posted after you did, I read it and thought "yeah, far out...'thread heads'...right on, man." (You nailed it.)

Of course, I don't know when to shut up, so I posted anyway.

"Cat-o-lot-o" can furthe be defined by anything you put after it...

So Bert, you are nearly correct. The term for the ancient Aztez spear was, in fact, Cat-o-lot-azspear (unless you are using the colloquial spelling in which case it is Cat-A-lot-o-Azspear).

Which would make this cat-o-lot-o b.s.

LMAO! Peter, would we then call it kama thread or be redundant and go for thread sutra; hmmmm...maybe we could even go for sutra itch, aw, could just say we'd stitch a few bits to the whole damn thing, so wind up with stitch-a-thread, or the dimunitive *stitches*.

For the truth about Neil Y.,one must travel north/west/east/or south depending on where one is, to Montana, to the Source at the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed, where one will find the Alter(sic) Room. One may have their perceptions of the world, folk music, and/or themselves and their loved ones, from the perspective of Mr. Young. This is not recommended for the faint at heart or uninitiated. For more informoation, before embarking on one's quest, one is strongly advised to seek counsel at the Orifice of 'Spaw aka Cleigh O'Possum's arse.

Though he may be very "Creep -like" at times, his performance as such has been at the control of the thread merchants and executives who would not know true creep if it attacked them. Mr. Diamond is not true to the art of the thread creeper even when his material is used by Rick. The essence of thread creep is in not knowing from where it has come exactly and how it has been passed on without regard to financial gain.

Spaw - Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying this?

How about " Kama Sutra". "Sutra" is a Sanskrit word meaning "thread" (the sutras were pages sown together with thread). From the same Indo-European roots, we get our word "suture". "Kama" reminds us that much of this is just sexual jockeying for position (see Retirement Thread for current example).....Just thought I would class things up....

I'm sorry Rick, Neil Diamond cannot be considered here in any form of thread creep. Everything regarding him has to do with money and as I said before, it can't be thread creep when associated with such crass commercialism. Now you can quote him and that's okay, but IMHO he certainly doesn't represent true thread creep.

I'm sorry gang, but this is a folk site and "Thread Creep" is a folk term as it meets the criteria for what is a folk song and the other terms do not.

1. It has been passed along by the oral process(at least as close to that as you can get on a fockin' computer)

2. Its origins are no longer clear. (I think Leej may have used it first, but I'm not sure anymore)

3. Most people have absolutely no idea what it means.

4. Most people could care less what it means.

5. It has no copyright protection.

6. It was not written for monetary gain.

7. We currently have two threads running on the subject.(Proving we're willing to talk about it ad infinitum)

8. Nobody using the term has ever made a dime by doing so. (Very important, as any true "creeper" is as broke as a fat ladies girdle and any "creeper" who does profit has sold out and is only "creep-like" at best)

I hope this clears up the matter entirely. You can use threadrift and that's Okay, but its not really "Thread Creep."
