Bradypus, wow! Thanks for the Cluny song! My son says that's REALLY cool. I like it, I like it.

Lepus, sorry about that wolfy "u" that I typed.

My great grandparents left Leitrim Ireland and brought their kids over to Minnesota to homestead at Tintah. I still have some relatives living there, and the old house they owned is still in the family, I think. I've never been there, but I have old photos of the place. My grandfather was a teenager at the time they left Ireland to homestead in the US. I have the memoirs of my great aunt Alice. She wrote about her parents, their life in Ireland, her father's decision to leave for America, and their journey overland from landing at Castle Garden.
Someday I will have to visit Tintah.

Let's see, what did I miss. Oh! Alice was talking about a feminine version of South Australia. That's good.

Actually I'll be doing that song at a concert for kids at the Maine Children's Museum this weekend. I ought to write an Olympics verse. Any suggestons? I haven't been paying attention to them, never do, so I'm a little ignorant of what's going on.

Oh, and Carlin, I've only heard the Pogues once many years ago. I was interested but not enough to become a fan. Sorry.

Well I joined up sometime this summer & also never did an I'm new here message.

Just back in rural New York from 10 days in England. Did they stage the fuel crisis just for me? Abbot's Bromley was cool, though.

What I'd really like is a pint of that lovely ale whose name I can't remember that I tried in the pub I can't remember either. Oh well. It's not that I had too much, just that I tried too many beers in too many different places. So a black & tan, room temperature, thanks, for me.

Mostly I sing & I love a-capella harmony singing. My idea of a good time is singing Chester or Liberty at the UK Sacred Harp Convention :-) I own a tin whistle & practice every once in a while. I'm no good at Irish on it, but it comes in handy for working out simple tunes from notation. My cat hates it.

What kind of card game is going on here? Anyone for Hearts?

Hello, everyone. I'm Bradypus. I've been here for quite a few months now - you'll usually find me in the Song Challenge threads. (well worth checking if you haven't found them already) I play piano accordion and autoharp, just for fun usually.

Did I hear that someone wanted a song about Cluny? Try this, and if you like it, I'll have a Talisker

Cluny the Scourge

My name is Cluny, and I'm a rat
The toughest rat of all
A sea rat, a bilge rat,
Who holds them all in thrall
I live hard, I fight hard
Whenever I've the urge
So hear my name, and shake with fear
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the evil rat
With jagged teeth and fur
A one-eyed rat, a long-tailed rat
Tail sharper than a spur
My brain's sharp, my heart's hard
I rage beneath the sky
So listen close to what I say
Obey, obey or die

My name is Cluny, the God of War
I've fought ferret and pike
An army lies at my command
I do whate'er I like
There's no love lost, there's only fear
I drive them to the verge
Sharp brain, sharp tail, sharp words, sharp wit
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the God of War
Tremble when he comes
Let fear bite sharp and wit be flat
When you hear Cluny's drums
A batwing cloak, a plumed, horned helm
The pipes will sound a dirge
Beware, beware for Cluny comes
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

You need a couch? Hey....There's one over in that corner. Be careful that that tiple on the wall doesn't fall and whack you.

Tavern threads have been running for well over a year now I guess and each one has a different theme. And even if it doesn't there are things in each that make them unique, many of which have become part of the lore and iconology of Mudcat. Some have become "writer's workshops" of sorts like the Steamboat Tavern that became so bizarre it just petered out. Some have a pretyy distinct end, some are just fun, some have lime jello wwrestling, flamingos, time warps............Here was one that a lot of people enjoyed reading or participating in:

MT - here is the current additions thread

Usually Aine starts a new one when it starts getting too long to load. I think she has it traced - so though she probably wouldn't object to anyone starting one, using the sorta-semi-hemi-demi-psuedo-unofficial-official one is probably better, as if you start one on your own no telling if the keeper of the book might ever see it.

Can anybody start an "additions to mudcat songbook" thread, or is that Aine's provenance?

Fortunately I can hold my scotch better than Mmario. I use my left front paw, usually. To hold my scotch. That's a joke, son, a joke.

Right now what I could REALLY use, even more than a Scotch (though I wouldn't say no to two fingers of an old single malt, neat) is a nap. Are there any comfy sofas (davenports, couches, whatever) in quiet corners in this-here bar?

Here would be one spot, or a seperate thread, or PM. But PM would deprive the rest of us from seeing it and kibitzing. That might be a plus. Or "additions to mudcat songbook" thread - though if a work in progress you might not want to do that.....

Question (sorry for the thread creep!): I'm writing a dark and fairly graphic song about domestic violence. Should I post it to a thread, or send it PM to people who want to see it? (I have several good friends, as well as my mother and grandmother, who were victims of domestic violence, and wanted to do a waker-upper song that raises the issue and speaks out for the victims. (The chorus starts, "This is your mother, this is your sister, this is your daughter, who will mourn? Who will grieve?"))

Well, just let me let Spaw know that I did indeed get my cookie fixed, and while I'm not Sam Spade, I'm not Terrible Tom either. Thanks for the laugh.

For our Guest, Mbo at ECU. I am not able to get you a copy of the video tape I made of the Corrs. I originally thought is was a group of brothers in the Pittsburgh who perform, interestingly enough as the Corrs Brothers, and two of whom, I think, own a nice little watering hole in Pittsburgh called the Harp and Fiddle. If the copy I accidently made wasn't on a tape of other things, the Irish Tenors is one I think, I'd send it to you. However, I have made an audio cassette copy from the video, in pseudo-stereo. If you would like a copy of the audio, send an e-mail to me at Meehan@puc.state.pa.us and give me your regular mailing address and I'll send you a copy.

Fill 'er up again lads and lasses

In the Year of Our Lord eighteen hundred and six we set sail from the cold quay of Cork We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks for the grand City Hall in New York. We'd an elegant craft; she was rigged fore and aft And how the trade winds drove her. She had twenty-three masts and she stood several blasts, And they called her The Irish Rover.

Generally I'm called Spaw, although I've been called a few other things.......well, skip that...........As the biggest waster of bandwidth in the joint, you may already have encountered me somewhere, but I am really glad to see so many new folks in the village. I hope you all enjoy and learn from this place as much as I have. We have some fine, caring, helpful, compassionate, intelligent, and talented people here.............sadly, I'm not one of them but that's another story.

If you have questions be sure to ask......someone will answer.....probably not me 'cause I don't know squat, but we do have some who do. I hope you all have explored the place a bit......check the stuff in the pull down menu under "Quick Links." AND...if things get too overwhelming and you feel addiction setting in....well that's normal....but treatment is available at the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed. We'll send the Insanevac chopper to pick you up.

Enough of that........PRAISE!!! Get off your christly ass and bring me a Jack and coke......Just show the can to Jack and then throw it away....and make it a triple.....Gotta' get primed for Mudcat Radio tonight(7 PM Eastern US-Mudcat Time)......and put it on Bert's Visa...............say what?........Its full?........Well call and get a credit extension!!!

Nynia - I was a mature student too (35 when I graduated). I loved it. I found that being a wee bit older I had more experience to draw on and new concepts were easier (well, less difficult) to understand than might have been the case when I was eighteen. In fact when I was eighteen I was a complete scally and totally incapable of learning anything. It was the right time for me.

I'm starting an MA in creative writing next week. Not for work or career or anything. Just because I love writing.

Congrats!! Jock. May you and your lassie have many years of love and happiness. Me and my colleen are going on 30 of our own.

Hey Arthur and Nynia, by any chance do either of you know of a Meehan's Pub or Bar (or similar designation) in or close to Dublin? I've been told that there is one. But there's probably plenty all over the island. Our children are proposing a trip to Ireland for our 31st, and it would be nice to find it and have our pictures taken in front of the place having our family name on it.

They have suggested a two week stay in Ireland. However, we feel, since we'd be so close, that we'll also go to Scotland. Nynia, if you have any good suggestions on what to do or where to go, I'd like to hear them. By the way, good luck in your studies. Have you selected a major yet.

Greetings, Carlin. Thought I'd let you know that I like the Pogues. I also enjoy listening to U-2, and just this last March, when taping a show on PBS, which I overtimed to account for pledge breaks, I found that I had taped a concert in London by the Corrs.

Okay, after a glass or two now of the fine brown brew, I'll join in:

I shook her up. I shook her down. Heave away! Haul away! I shook her round and round the town. We're bound for South Australia.

Slainte gael mavourneen!

ooh, Lagavulin! Nice!

Cheers, Jock, to you and your lassie! May you have many happy days together!

(mmmmmmmmmmm)
(these newcomers know how to fit right in)

I am no newcomer but am glad to see so many recently!

I just wrote an article on single malts (sort of a how to for beginners on how to drink 'em) for a web magazine. Found myself wanting a Lagavulin cuz it is just about the best there is (though I am partial to Macallan!); so you have addressed a recent fantasy...

Can I have a Bass Ale to chase it? (the only acceptable chaser in my book)

Hello newcomers! Please pardon the fact that I am covered in sawdust! Right then! Who wants to start a rousing chorus of Bonehead's Bank Holiday?

bouncer? we have a bouncer?

lot's of people here don't drink, or may only drink in virtual space. I tend to stick with highly caffienated beverages myself, though single malt scotches are rarely turned down.

Seeing as I got engaged to a lovely lass just a few days back, I'll treat all that want it to a single malt. Lagavulin alright for folks?
