Subject: Missing Mudcat blues
From: BSeed
Date: 12 Oct 98 - 01:09 AM

After last weekend's four day crash, when the threads were shut down today I was wandering around elsewhere on my Mac and I found this song. It seems to be a 12 bar blues--but there's that one verse with four lines, three of 'em have to be jammed into the first six or so measures.

MISSIN' THE MUDCAT BLUES


I got the blues 'cause the Mudcat's gone and crashed again;
My God it hurts, the Mudcat's crashed again--
Good golly Miss Molly, when will them crashes end?

I gotta have the 'cat, 'cause I got a lotta stuff to say;
Oh, I need them threads 'cause I got so much to say.
But Benjamin and Barry Finn and all the threads have gone away.

I need Barbara and Art, I need Alison and Mick,
With only silence from the swamps--I know I'm gettin' sick,
Tim and Chet and Northfolk, you're gone but what can I do?
I'd ask Joe Offer, but dammit, he's gone, too.

With no Harpgirl and no Raven I'm stuck all alone in lonesome hell;
Bill's in Alabama, and there¹s no Wolfgang here in hell,
Roger, Pete, and Ewan, Mike and Murray, they're all gone as well.

There's no word out of Brisbane, and Vancouver's quiet, too;
There's no word out of Brisbane, and Vancouver's quiet, too.
You gotta get me back on line, Max, 'cause what else can I do?

I got the blues 'cause the Mudcat's gone and crashed again;
My God it hurts, the Mudcat's crashed again--
Good golly Miss Molly, when will them crashes end?

Joe, ya gotta teach me how to edit a posting that's already in the threads. I notice I missed changing a couple or three apostrophes, so they came out as ones. Luckily, I didn't use any quotation marks.

Another note to anyone else: the third verse, of course, still fits, as in Mule Skinner Blues:

I got a belly fulla whiskey, got a head fulla gin,
The doctor sez it'll kill me but he don't say when,
I'm a long line skinner, got a home out in the west.
I'm lookin' for a woman who's gonna love me the best.

I tried to refresh this last night, but I was having a hell of a time posting anything. Now I finally posted a reference to it on Writing Songs, so maybe I can finally get my postings through again. --seed

Max, you're right there. In the song. Honest. All along, the kicker in the last verse. (not counting the repeated first verse). --seed

Immortalized in song, and blues no less. Well done, boyo. I got a kick out of it. Seems like you got most of the regulars. And put my name in the same line as me beloved alison, bejazus lad, but it don't git no better than this.

All the best,

Mick

Joe, you are there, in your usual guise as the source of all knowledge, last line of the 3rd (4-line) verse. --seed

Or is it my pairing Alison and Mick that Bothers you?

Joe: As on occasion before, I double posted this time because my first didn't show up on the threads list I had called up; I posted again, and when the list returned I opened the thread to find both postings. I've discovered that if you use the back arrow or if you click the forum home link, you get the version of the list from which you came, i.e., with nothing on it since you left it. Is there any way other than posting of calling up an up-to-the-minute threads list? --seed

No further comment, Seed. I could get myself in trouble, ya know. (wink)

If you use the back arrow or backspace key, you go back to the previous page you were on, and it is not refreshed. If you post a message or use the forum home button, you should go to a refreshed Forum menu - works for me. Of course, if you're fast about reading messages, maybe nobody's posted a new message since you last looked, or maybe your browser is set to use the archived version of the page.
-Joe Offer, still miffed-
...but I did enjoy the song, self-promoted though it may be...

There's also the "Show threads" button for refreshing the threads page - it works well even if you haven't change the filter or number of days.

The only problem is if you post to a thread, it changes the number of days from 1 to 3 and there's no way to change it back (is there, Max?) so it takes longer to refresh the page.

I had problems posting again today, Jon. I had written you a note thanking you for the tip, but wondering where in he heck my "Show Threads" button might be: It used to be about where the Create a New Thread link is, maybe just under it. I used to use it a lot out of impatience at waiting for the list to appear until I discovered that although using it quickly gave me a list, it was only about a third of the total list and it lasted only about 30 seconds. I'd punch the button again, the list would come back, only about half as long, and again, only for 30 seconds; a third punch would get me a very abbreviated list, maybe only the top four or five. Finally I discovered that if I just waited for them to boot, they'd hang around for a while. But I don't get the button any more. --seed

Jon, the message above is essentially the one I tried to post earlier today, minus the incomplete thought that opens it. I have this problem from time to time of my postings not making it to a thread; the top of the threads list appears, but my thread is not there. I scroll down to it and see my posting is not at the end of the thread. Happened today, and after three futile attempts I gave up. --seed
