Subject: New Mudcat Logo for T-shirts
From: Max
Date: 29 Aug 97 - 12:00 AM

Ok, I got something to show you all. Before you jump down my throat for this, please remember that we are going to create more than one version of tshirts for you all. This is the design for the our (my team) tshirt. The fronts will look something like this:

Also on the front or back or another shirt will be the digitrad logo.

For now...

Howdy Max,

The fiddlin' cat is not bad, but finding a significant use for banjos -- like a catfish hatchery is really inventive. I just hope that you're not planning on only those button t-shirts as in the picture. I prefer to wear the plain t's and only really care about the front design since the back is usually covered by another shirt.

Allinkausay,
Bill

Not really taking votes on these. The "other team" is all of you. If there is anyone who has a logo or wants to make a logo let me know. We will be having a lot of different images representing us as the days go on. The image of the shirt I made is just an example image I stole of another site I did. It is not the t-shirt we will make. I do get the impression though that we can never satisfy everyone. As the nature of the Mudcat has always been to let you decide, we have created a hopeless endevor for concensus.

RE: slogan

I share the happy notion that folk and blues do, indeed, undermine fascism (and any other excessively authoritarian forms of social organization, as well). However, I wonder if a better, or, at least, mellower, slogan might not be this quote from Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant:" "Ya wanta end war 'n' stuff, ya gotta sing LOUD!"

I'm not an expert on t-shirt design, but I believe it's possible to have a variety of designs on hand, with a variety of t-shirt colours, styles, and sizes, and just get them made up as ordered. This might satisfy (almost) everyone, and avoid the need for consensus!

For example, the "Cows" company (based in Prince Edward Island, in Canada) has a catalogue with many different t-shirt designs, and when you order you also choose your own size, style, and background colour. (You can see their website at http://www.cows.ca - it's not musical but it's fun!)

Unlike Peter T., I'd prefer less prominent whiskers (or is this needed for biological accuracy???). Like Shula, I prefer the Arlo Guthrie quote.

P.S., what about mugs & buttons, once you're at it?

In the fifty-odd years I've been involved with folk music, I've never yet observed a fascist killed nor a war averted by anyone's singing. If we must have a quote (or a paraphrase of one) how about "This song is your song..."

With deference to the our venerable benefactor, Mr. Greenhaus, I just rather fancied the line from Mr. Guthrie, the younger, because of the insidiously offhand and ambiguously all-encompassing drollery of the " 'n stuff." It seemed to me entirely devoid of any sort of militancy.

Of course, on a T-shirt, we couldn't hear the deadpan delivery. I confess it was presumptuous of me to assume its universal familiarity, even in this forum.

Also, unless the reader were familiar with the context of the quote, near the end of the marathon "shaggy dog" story/song, Arlo having just scolded his audience with, "That 'uz terr'ble!" for their half-hearted and disorganised effort on the chorus, the gentle irony would be subverted. So p'raps something less off-beat would, indeed, better serve the purpose, though I doubt you could elicit a warmer chuckle than this line frequently evokes.

How about '"Come-All-Ye-Lads-n-Lassies" Website'? A typical beginning to Irish and Scottish Folk songs. If not, I also like the Arlo quote even though I don't know the song. Or how about "This Website EATS facists" which may be a little less violent?

Great ARtwork. I like the fiddle one because it would frame the logo quite nicely.

I definitely like the buttons/collar. Makes it look more professional.

Whatever you choose, I would prefer a politically neutral yet inspiring quote on the back.

Dear Max, the second design is cleaner, and I think more versatile. It certainly works for guitar. One suggestion: why not take the central core of the second design, with the circle of lettering and the dark middle, and do an outline (like the guitar outline) for the other instruments (the banjo could maybe be even simpler, just eliminating the guitar outline and extending the neck block). For the a-cappella people, the centre could be a mouth, with an outline of a face. You would then have some continuity for each version, but slight changes -- those simple outlines -- designating each instrument. Yours, Peter

Max, you noted early on that this wasn't supposed to be a referendum, but it was inevitable, wasn't it? Although the regulars here are very shy about proffering an opinion of any kind, it was great to see them actually taking a stand on something.

I VOTE for your very first design (Mudcat jumping from Banjo). I may be wrong, but I still believe in economies of scale. One people, One T-shirt. Multiple instrument designs will surely turn this into a very expensive shirt. I also vote for the highest quality shirt available. Maybe a two or three button with a henley collar? Logo on back should be optional. I like the Arlo quote, or alternately in the same vein, Country Joe's "Listen, people, I don't know how you ever expect to stop the war if you can't sing any better than that ..." maybe a little long now that I type it out. Regardless how all this turns out, thanks Max for working on it!

Yes, all cotton and extra large, even extra extra large. Cotton always shrinks, especially when it is bachelor types like myself doing the laundry. I know some people like long sleeve tees, but in my experience the sleeves always shrink so that they end up halfway up your forearms.

I will go for the button version, if that is going to be an option, because I might be able to get away with wearing it to work on casual days. However if you go for a golf shirt kind of thing then you have to have the logo embroidered and the cost goes up considerably.

BTW, just what is a mudcat? Is that like a carp, or the same thing that they call mudpuppies?

I really like the banjo logo, although the fish's head could be improved. It looks a little too much like a dolphin, despite the whisker. The fiddler has more of a mudcat look. My vote is touch up the banjo cartoon. The banjo is great, and the colors are very good.

I'm not too sure whether I like the idea of writing on the back at all, but I disagree with Dick on the Arlo quote. It's a metaphor for, "We have to be ready to make a fuller commitment."

Also, Shula got it right when he commented on the word, "n'stuff". The poetry in that powerful little addition to the sentence should not be tossed off as casually as the word itself seems, on the surface, to have been tossed off by Arlo.
