From a scotch gaelic singer named Holly Morrison who I met at a very good musical gathering in my area (New England).I was complaining that it was very hard to find people to talk with about traditional songs, especially irish gaelic songs. She mentioned The Mudcat. I have been visiting here ever since. Thanks Holly if you're still visiting.

My bookmark file tells me I created my bookmark in Oct. 96. I'm pretty sure that was to the old Xerox site. I can't remember how I found it. When it moved to Mudcat I paid no attention at all the all the things Max added, the radio program, the forum, nothing. I returned frequently to look at lyrics.

Sometime early last year someone mentioned on the folktalk mailing list that this was a good place to talk about folk music. Sometime when I was here again looking at lyrics I decided to take a look at the forum. I started lurking a little over a year ago, easy to remember because it was not long before Old Songs. I joined last summer some time.

Was DT up in some form before the WEB? I seem to remember a lyrics site that used FTP. It was always busy IIRC.

Years ago at Songs of Sail in Penetanguishene, we were camping near a couple of folks from Pensylvania, I think it was. Talk led to a disk of songs called Digital Tradition. A few years later Digital Traditions website became the Mudcat Cafe, eventually last year I discovered the Forum. I don't remember the names of the people who I got the disk from but thanks anyhow.

I remember the swinging slugs, Madame Duck! Seems a very long time ago.

About 18 months ago, my brother-in-law e-mailed me a page from the DT of lyrics to As I Roved Out which we used to sing together. I browsed the DT and the forum very happily for a few months before posting for the first time in April last year.

My first thread was asking for the meaning of the phrase "Indian Giver" which got a lot of interesting respons... and I've not looked back. Thanks folks, for all you have given me since then.

There I was minding my own business over a pint in the Jug when the bearded one started going on about the Mudcat cafe " Where's that Bill " I said "On the internet "he replied "Is that near here ?" I asked "Is there a bus?" He said I needed to buy a computer so I did 'cos I do as I'm told. One of my first questions was "Do slugs swing?" and the rest is history really!!!Twelve months later I'm posing nude for calendars!!!! And I'm on the 2nd computer so that conversation with Bill cost me about £2000. Hmmm! Worth every penny Bill! :)

It'll be a year for me in July. I was just beginning to learn how to play the accordion. I wanted to find some European circus music to play on it. My sister's group has a link to the Mudcat on their website (www.pyrates.com).

I had never done anything on the internet except a few primitive searches. I knew nothing about forums, message boards, news groups, or chat rooms. My sister showed me how to use the Mudcat, and I've been stuck here ever since. I've had an amazing time here. And I've met some fantastic people here in the forum, some of whom I've spent time with in the 3D world. It's been a wonderful experience.

LH, are you sure that wasn't flattop in disguise?

I had been looking for some lyrics to Irish songs, as a favor to some musician friends who didn't have a computer. Somewhere I found a link that brought me here.

In fact, the first thread I ever started was a rant about all the useless web sites I had been looking at. You can read it here.

I made the mistake of going to Toronto one day (I really try not to, but...well, you know...), and I was walking down the street when this guy goes...

"Psssst! Hey, buddy! Wanna get a tip on something real special?"

I look at the guy, and he is really sleazy looking. Long trenchcoat, dirty fedora, cigarette stained fingers, horrifically tasteless sports coat showing under trenchcoat.

I'm about to walk on, but he says, "Ya like folk music, dontcha?"

"Yes..." I answer, edging away.

He moves closer. "Wanna tip on the best folk music site on the Internet? Wanna real hot tip?"

"Well, what'll it cost me?" I asked.

"Thousands of hours of your time, carpal tunnel syndrome, tired eyes, and a frustrated sense of having lost your bearings, not to mention your patience, specially when your postings are totally misconstrued by certain people who decide you are a Nazi, or a fellow traveller, or a Communist, or something else like that!" he said, his eyes glinting strangely.

"I see. What's in it for me?"

"Lots of laughs, some really good music info now and then, and a chance to meet a lunatic named "Catspaw49" or just "Spaw" for short..."

What the hell. I went for it. Who was that guy, anyway?

Once I got on the Internet regularly, I started looking up song fragments, the lines that I couldn't catch from songs I knew the rest of, that is. And somehow I would always end up here... so I bookmarked it and started looking here first... then I gradually started reading threads... then I fell right into the deep end and joined!

Not that long ago, only a couple years so it must be old age.......(grin). I do remember that I lurked and read a LOT of stuff before I posted, to the extent that at least one member was (maybe still is?) convinced that I was the same person as kat/katlaughing........even photos didn't convince that person otherwise!

I didn't even get Internet until Dec '98, and I think it was at least Jan '99 before I discovered the 'Cat...I can go look and find the date of my first post if you want...

Pam Swan introduced me to the Mudcat. Not long after I joined, she and Dave hosted a small Mudcat gathering at their place for visiting WyoWoman (see photo in events section).

The upstairs tenant is very grateful for this. The less time I'm practicing and the more time I'm on the computer is a blessing to him.

Dear duobanjo,

Since you're new to the Mudcat, I'll jump in here to attempt to explain (and I'm *sure* others will follow) about the 'BS' threads. 'BS' means exactly what you think it does . . . therefore, don't be surprised when the thread creep tends to get a little *wild* at times. The 'BS' title was created so that folks could discuss subjects that were not *exactly* musical; however, it still amazes me how much music we do get out of these rants and ramblings.

My advice is to stay out of the BS threads if you find them distasteful. Most of the folks here at the 'Cat (especially the nutters above) are just having fun. If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine. You see, we have to let some of these guys and gals run a bit crazy now and again, or we don't know *what* we'd be reading in the newspapers about 'em!
