I agree Moon.....and I wasn't trying to bring anything back, just looking at "evolution" and in the process saying exactly what the 'Cat does mean to a lot of us....well, me in any case. If I didn't get that across, I didn't do a good job and I'm sorry I wasn't better.

Sorry I can't help on "used to be" friendships though. What am I missing here?

I just finished it and it was fun reading. A few of them have gone and a few are less active, but garg was of course rather benign as he often could be. Along with the times he was amazingly intelligent and well versed, he could also get far meaner and more spiteful. Where I do see a difference is in the overall tone of some of the moderate flamers we pick up now and again is, on the whole, a lot worse and a lot less knowledgable than garg.

We had just emerged into a light bantering period and the atmosphere was relaxed although we were still feeling our way into a different kind of cyber community than had been before and indeed one that differs greatly from other places on the net. We lost lots of good people during the next 6 months or so, but we acquired others, many of them now being part of the core group of 'Catters.

I think the evolution is interesting and it of course still goes on. The last part we have seen is the "Great Mudcat Adventure" of Bill and Allan and the way in which it brought us to a new level again. There are several significant moments in the history of this joint that have created the overall sense of family and community. Annaps first gathering for instance; there was initially great concern over her addy being given out and all that.....privacy issues and such. Now take a look....simply amazing.

I think that last year's FSGW was quite significant in the number of 'Catters in attendance and the great reports back to those who were only there in spirit. I don't recall any event before that time that was so well reported and with such exuberance, not to mention the sheer number of people who were there. Combined with annap's, the intermingling of 'Catters became more frequent with the best of it all coming lately from Allan and Bill.

We've gone through several extremely nasty periods too, but each has taught us better how to get along and how to handle the situations. Many times, one member has come to the front and shown us a way to cope, as Leej did with the first "Tavern" thread, and we have I think grown through those too. HearMe has brought another tool that has been a big part of the recent growth.

Thinking back more brings to mind other events that created large changes to the Village of Mudcat that make it so different from other places. Our new members often are amazed at the openess of the place and while at first they are reticent, most fall into the open atmosphere almost before they know it and can't believe they are doing it. If I had to pick an event that bonded the spirits of the people here and changed the tenor of the place in general, I would say it was my hospitalization. Most found things in themselves and others then that they certainly didn't expect......like the idea of dropping what they were doing and driving hundreds of miles for someone who was in essence a total stranger. But the unique thing was and is, that we are not strangers when we meet, but rather old friends....who've never met.

Some threads helped to create these feelings and sometimes they were threads not necessarily harmonius, but certainly we learned much of each other from them. Overall, we have learned a way to judge one another through our words and we are finding that our judgements are sound. I am still struck by a feeling from the Radio Show following Bill and Allan's trip. I think that then, for the very first time, Max felt the true enormity of his creation and the union of souls his work had inspired. He may have enjoyed it before, but what Mudcat was, in my opinion, came home to him that night. Maybe it came home to all of us even more.

What's next? We are a different place than we were then and we'll be a different place tomorrow. But I still relate back to something Sandy Paton once said. "I always wanted to live somewhere like this." As always, Sandy was, and is, right. I still like living here. In some ways we've gotten better and better and in a few ways, things are worse....but its still one helluva' fine place to come home.

Wouldn't you like to know where some of the people have gone? And, while I've had my trial by fire with the real gargoyle, he was actually pretty benign on the threads, wasn't he? I know it's a long thread to go through, but I reread every one and it made me kind of sit up straight.

Right on LEJ!!! I think if the 'Spaw could communicate with us right now he would probably tell us to quit all this damn "CATerwalling" and lighten up! While we are all obviously very concerned about him and wish him all the best, I believe in his absence, until he can once again take the helm, he would want us to continue the fine examples of insanity he has set for us...I for one intend to do my part to carry on the tradition....On second thought, to HELL with tradition...let's do it the way we always have!!!

I really needed a dose of Catspaw, and since Mr. Over-the -Top is convalescing, I checked out this thread from some weeks back. It got me laughing with my buddy instead of worrying about him, and I think he'd like that better. Anyway, I thought I'd refresh this classic example of Thread Creep, featuring Cats at his best (and worst).

Okay, a lot of you won't understand how bizarre this bill was. In my teenage years I saw a show at Toronto's Exhibition Stadium that opened with Blues/Rocker Rick Derringer, was followed by Blues/Rocker Rory Gallagher and closed with Aerosmith. In between Gallagher and Aerosmith was Henry Gross who was enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame with "Shannon" the syrupy, schlocky dog lost at sea song. It actually happened, I was there.

How about covers by like names?

Frank Zappa sings Frank Sinatra, I mean who is better qualified to sing "I Did It My Way"?

From the truth is stranger than fiction category, who else has heard the Pat Boone CD where he covers Heavy Metal bands like Led Zeppelin (wasn't there a thread about them a while back?), Metallica, Deep Purple etc? It is a hoot, especially Pat's version of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train"

I'm not sure if Ozzy was originally an Osbourne Brother of Bluegrass fame. What about Homer and Jetro Tull?

I enjoyed all of your pairings Rick and I did know they were real...I just thought you threw that last one in with a little extra fanfare making me assume it was a shot...but that DID make the sideways line a little nutso didn't it? Emmylou takes a lot of flak sometimes 'cause she doesn't fit the right slots all the time and often moves forward or backward in a kind of exploration process. Lately I've been pushing "Prayer in Open D" every chance I get to the point of nausea. Not many songs speak to taking personal responsibility for what we do in this age. So I kinda' thought you were zapping me about "my Girl." Didn't know about the guitar, thought she was still on the Gibson thing.

Best of luck...I'm sure you won't need it...on tour. Taking a "stabilizing influence" along ought to make it fun without being,uh...costly? Hope you both have a good time. Karen and I are dying for a few days alone together, so I'm envious too!!!I'll miss you while you're gone too there...Reg!

Actually seed, all the couplings in my post HAVE actually happened. That WAS the joke! (guess I'd better not quit my day job). BUT..imagine my surprise to find out that Catspaw is an Emmy Lou fan, and that I was taking a cheap shot at both of them! Nooo Nooo Nooo! Didn't know the first...and wasn't doing the second! I actually am a big fan of Ms. Harris, and even more so now that she's playing a guitar built by my friend Glen Reid. The humour (for those who are into it) comes from the incongruity of the parings, and the downside result is that often the music made is much less than either artist would do on their own.

On the other hand, now I understand your "take one sideways" line "Paw". I assume it's the celtic translation of "Goin' upside your head!" If you want to mess with a Canadian, tell them "On Your Back,Bacon!" Gonna miss you while I'm on tour, Cletus.

And by the way, Rick was taking a shot at me as he knows I've got a soft spot (perhaps also a har.......no,let that go, too crude) for Emmylou. Notice on the next post that I took a crude shot back. Rick's so refined...smooth as 10W40.

Phillipa said I should come over here. I think she was suggesting I do penance for an outburst on the "Want to find a song" thread. I often wondered why Joe, who is usually quite polite, would occasionally break nasty on some poor soul.

For me, it is the feeling of wanting to control something, trying to do so nicely, and then eventually giving up, assuming stupidity or just plain onariness on the part of the hapless poster.

Well, I crossed the line, but I don't feel too guilty about it. Sometimes you work really nicely on a frustrating problem and then you just gotta take a hammer to it.

Isn't this a fun thread? It started about lightening up, but it seems to have become a refuge for some of us as the topics may change, but Lord knows they're light. Thank you Rick for another goodie!!!!!

So we combine the two perhaps and have, say,

Art Thieme Sings Art Garfunkel---and I am not demeaning either one, but somehow the material just doesn't work does it?

Simon,Alvin,and Theodore Sing Paul Simon---specifically I think "Hearts and Bones" or "African Skies" would be quite unique.

Pete Townsend/Pete Seeger---go either way with this one.

Roger McGuinn Does Roger Miller---can you see McGuinn bobbing his head around in that goofy way singing "Chug-A-Lug, Chug-A-Lug?"

Cass Elliott and "Ramblin' Jack---hmmm, could have been entertainin'!!??!!??

Michael Jackson and Jackson Browne---either way involves some serious weirdness, you pick.

How about a 3-way? Neils-Young,Sedaka,Diamond---mix and match folks and it's too strange to contemplate.

Now if things here become a bit surreal, we could go to a kind of Spinal Tap fantasy.

Yeah, it could get really bizarre, like "The Chieftans" with "Van Morrison". Or how about "The Chieftans" with "Sinead O'Connor". Or my personal fantasy nightmare: "Bill Monroe with Emmy Lou Harris". Boy, I'd hate for that to ever become reality!
