Subject: MUDCAT TAVERN THREE, JUST THE
From: wysiwyg
Date: 16 Oct 00 - 06:36 PM

This is the tavern that is just a tavern, no spacetime irregularities or manipulations, no special effects other than those caused by nature, no mystery plots. We are opening tonight in honor of DAVID LEVER, and someone will probably make a clicky here so that later Tavern visitors in the next millenium can see how he was treated for all his good behavior. Dave (tam), my knickers are still up the flagpole, and I fly them this time for you. Long may they wave!

Over there in the back there's a game of hearts going on, and beyond that is Ernie Dowell's wake, till Thursday AM EST.

The recliner section looks kinda empty but it's early yet. Now that the Olympics are over, we have the bigscreen TV going over in that area, but it's OK. It's just archived Mudcat Radio and Video shows, and Max can't see us but we can see him. Remotes at each recliner too, and afghans.

The pajammie closet is stocked with every size and style of comfies you can imagine. A brazzer storage vault with locking bins has been added to prevent some of the unfortunate hijacking of lingerie that occurred last time. So ladies, get comfy in confidence, it will still be there when you dress to go about your business.

Something REALLY NASTY seems to be going on over by the Jello Pit. The odor coming from that area suggests that the Jello Dive this time includes optional time-release Marmite and Vegemite administration. Of course it has to be taken ahead of time but there are little jars along the bar. Someone is over there standing by with a little blowtorch to light the emissions as divers pass by.

The lingering memories many here have of Miss Caitrin are tending bar. Lot of Caitrin's back there it seems. Maybe Herself will stop in with a plate of cookies.

I am happy to see that work on the doggie door has been completed, where lurkers, newbies, and Sugar Dogs can come and go freely. Look out for cats whizzing around your legs through themain door. Sneaks. Lurkers, please do stop at the Loo to leave a little graffitti, and will someone please tell me how to spell graffitti?

A Whiskey Cat is curled up on the top shelf of the bar surveying all. Sugar Dog she come in and say "woof!" That mean, where mah BEER???? She take a big bowl an' she hop up in a recliner, maybe some good lap come along.

Oh, and there be a link to the last such tavern right quick. Sugar Dog hop down go fetch.

Whoosh!

I'm sorry Praise, and it's probably something lacking on my part - but I really don't understand these threads.

Can someone please explain how telling virtual friends that you'll buy them a virtual drink or whatever can possibly be a good way to spend your time.

I try to live by the ideal that you shouldn't 'criticise what you can't understand' so I won't be critical.

I do however find the idea of these threads completely baffling.

If someone can explain their attraction, I'd be grateful.

Thank you

Zeb

Sorry, thread creep!

Zebedee, it looks like you are new here. If so, welcome to the Mudcat.

I find that I have a much better experience here in the Mudcat if I just stay out of the threads that don't appeal to me, and I post to the ones that do. Some of the threads that I post to probably don't make much sense to many of the people who read them. Other threads don't make much sense to me.

One of the beautiful things about the Mudcat is the rich diversity of the individuals here, and the amazing mix of creative input, as well as useful information and sometimes outright silliness that can be found here. It's a wonderful place.

Best wishes,

Carol

Another reason is that the Taverns are to some extent a "guilt-free" BS zone, where thread creep is welcomed, okay, tolerated, alright, put up with...

We call these threads "taverns" but they have been virtual campfires, lounges, cooperative fiction writing sessions, bereavment sharing, and a whole host more of things. You may not have been around long enough - (a scan of your posts shows only three days) but for many of the 'catters this is NOT virtual. Many of us are quite simply "ourselves" - though expressing ourselves in written form. I may not be able to stop and chat in a local pub with some of my friends - they are too far away. But I CAN stop by a tavern thread, and "unwind" with them.

No everyone understands that.

Matt_R - welcome! welcome! WELCOME!

Give that sugah-dawg a big hug for me.

Zeb, if you want some real craziness, just input the word 'Tavern' in the filter box and set the refresh to 2 years. Start with the oldest and watch as the thing becomes completely crazed. The subjecy matter is different and the cast changes, but these past few by comparison are pretty mild. There were some really whacked out tavern threads!!! Some, as Mario said, have gone the "Group Writing" route like one that a real excited young fella'that we used to have around here started called the "Mudcat Juke Joint" Run a search on that one...it pretty good and a lot of fun.

And Matt_R.....Glad to see you around here at the Mudcat. You might like that Juke Joint thing too. Ya never know do you?

Good evening all! I hope you are all well.

Hesperis, I never learned euchre because it always sounded too much like neuter and eunuch. As such I stayed right away from it. *bg*

Gimme a Maggie. I've had a rough night. Just off to bed once I finish this up.

What? What I do tonight? What haven't I done?

Posted some pictures in the photo gallery. Did some laundry, worked on an editing job I'm doing, researched some chanties for a workshop this weekend, cooked supper, chauffered my daughter, posted to some of these threads, added two new threads, recorded some old 1950's era Ed McCurdy and Oscar Brand records on to cassette and now it's Maggie time!

Ahhh! That goes down smooth.

I always thought it was pronounced 'yookker', sort of like 'likker' but with a 'yoooo' sound to it.

But it needs four people...

(So I'm single-minded. So?)

So pour me a nice Jamaican lemonade, with a plate of mango and kiwi slices on buttered toast to munch on, and I'll curl up to watch the fire............ listen to the soft music............... nap in the big ol' armchair...

Bend little willow,
Wind's gonna blow you,
Hard and cold tonight
Life as it happens,
Nobody warns you,
Willow hold on tight

Nothing's gonna shake your love,
Take your love away,
No-one's out to break your heart,
It only seems that way...hey

Sleep little willow,
Peace gonna follow,
Time will heal your wounds
Grow to the heavens,
Now and forever,
Always came too soon

Nothing's gonna shake your love,
Take your love away,
No-one's out to break your heart,
It only seems that way...hey

Bend little willow,
Wind's gonna blow you,
Hard and cold tonight

The night is young and the Sugar Dog feels like she has been up to her fluffy soft ears in sh*t for as long as she can remember. She flows in through the doggie door, having seen a flickershow with some nice people in the basement... she takes a look around, no sh*t! No sh*t here!

Sugar Dog remember she have a friend is out of town for some object lesson training thing an' hoping she phone up for a concert. Uh huh, Sugar Dog not doin' that HearMe thing yet, but she can dial phone. (Hee hee! Sugar DOg and Sugar Dog Man Hardi give that friend man a real good concert las' night! She whomp up blues on the electric autoharp, play it with her claws, an' HOWL??? That man laffin' in that ho-tell! Oh she have fun!)

Now she call up that man again an' have a lil talk about all that sh*t is out there and they have laff and more laff. Then she tell him about the Sugar Dog hymn she know, he think funny, she say no, real!! He say no! She say yes! She say she maybe howl it good but lil sugar dog (daughter) she go sleep, take two for that song, maybe another time.

Then all of a sudden Sugar Dog throat open up to laff and out pop that song anyhow! Oh she so funny, she howl a hymn! Wal not a old hymn, a new praise kinda thing. Oh the man laff so hard, he a Sugar Dog Man too, one uh THE sugar dog mans... ha ha, he think he know Sugar Dog before, now he know her more! He go bananas.

Wal now Sugar Dog tired from all that howlin' and laffin, but she look for some more sugar dog or maybe a whiskey cat, set up a lil show for any Sugar Dog Mans is here. Where that JenElle girl go? And where that Whiskey Cat one at too?

Sugar Dog think she jus' curl up on stage, wait.

Little Hawk ties his horse at the front of the Tavern, and peers suspiciously through the almost opaque and slightly greasy windows. These white people have the weirdest ways of socializing imaginable, he thinks. Time to shape-shift. A slight rippling effect in the aura, and Little Hawk is transformed into folksinger George Coventry, complete with harmonica pouch containing 8 keys of harmonica, and guitar in hand. He enters the Tavern.

The air is way too smoky, but he's seen worse. Cigarette fiends are slumped at the tables, their eyes glassily fixed upon giant TV screens where overly paid athletes cavort before thousands of Homer Simpson clones. Would this be an opportune time to transform back into Little Hawk and put an arrow through the screen? Well, perhaps not...

It's fun playing the George Coventry, famous folksinger part, walking casually in like Dylan at the Nickelodeon...but not as dangerous...because George is not really famous, except at Don's Coffeehouse and a couple of other local spots like that. It's an enjoyable fantasy with "little risk involved". (Pick the right song title for that quote and you could win an as yet unspecified prize...).

Ah, here are some of the Mudcatters...a bizarre but generally likeable bunch of people with their fingers directly on the pulse of what is and is not a "folksong". Just ask 'em.

Everyone is still winding down from the Sargeant Kat and her Howling Commandos episode.

Matt is playing the guitar, and singing in a surprisingly good voice...plenty of depth and timber...but the damned jukebox is drowing him out.

Spaw farts sonorously in its general direction, and the jukebox utters an inchoate shriek and dies. Good. Now we can listen to Matt properly.

Looks like this visit was worthwhile after all...

Dang little hawk, your virtuality synchonizer must be out of whack! One of the first underlying principals of the Tavern is that due to it's nature the vices of one occupant do not interfere with the pleasures of another occupant.

Of course ye olde mudcat tavern does tend to metamorph on a frequent schedule. I'm still trying to find the camara I put down during the tequila jello wrestling match, and the sneaks I took off during the riverboat cruise...

Sugar Dog she love to slobber on fuzzies, heh heh!

WonderGoose walk-flaps over to the bar, there not being room to really fly, and thank God! Her wings are wore out! She hummin' that song about being Wore Out.... Sugar Dog she wander over.

WonderGoose orders a double bowl of Bushmills and gets REAL busy beaking it. Tilting her head back, glassy eyes rolling in a wild way.

"Whassup?" sez Sugar Dog. "You din't seem too fried to fly, Ah din't see you had your knickers in any twist. Come to think, Ah din't see you had any knickers on, no wonder you flyin' so tired. Whatcha been doin' before you give me that good ride?"

"Din't sh*t in it though I bet," sez Sugar Dog, all lil dog giggles.

"No," sez WG, "but I was sorely tempted, Sugar, SORELY. And people WILL not shuddup!!!"

Sugar Dog she grin, go fetch two littlest fuzzies, fit on WG ears just right, all sticky with sugarslobber.

Packing to leave one's job can have unanticipated blessings. Mine was, I just found the three kids' books that had gone missing after one staffer's little girl got too old to come to work with mommie anymore. (O mommie, I'm too big to go THERE! I go to Big Girl school!)

I spent many hours reading to her, a little at a time, as she grew up among us. I thought the books were long gone. Two, irreplaceable I think, had been well-used when I bought them for my own son, when very, very small, and he turns 21 next week. I'm going to send them to him for Christmas, after they have visited a certain friend of mine in CA. (Yes, you, BG.)

Well! One has the BEST poem, I could almost recall it... knew it would make a great song! So I'm giving it its own thread-- go look for the Sugar Plum Tree, which MUST grow just outside the Mudcat Tavern. (Sorry, the names in the poem, although changed to protect the innocent, have been spoken for already. WhaHoo! More critters I get to write!) I'll clicky to it later if I can.

In a green wood close to our village
A quiet pool lies still and deep
The evening sounds and forest birds
Have gently lulled my love to sleep

Her pretty mouth lies warm and smiling
She'll never know how my heart aches
I've never dared to say "I love you"
I'll tell her now before she wakes

Sleep my love and dream while you do
I will love you our whole life through
All my dreams depend upon you
Only say that you love me to

It seems a pity now to wake her
I'd rather stay here and pretend
If we could only stay forever
Then this dream would never end
Bon soir dame, madame fait do dos

Party night....hmmm...the perfect party night....

A traveler coming up the road would only know of it's exhistance by the soft glow of light coming from the trees surrounding the tavern. They might catch smells dancing on the breeze, alternating whiffs of SusanAR's delightful cooking and greenish clouds of partially digested vegemite...

Intrigued, they further up the path. Feet crunching on gravel in time to the music they now hear. A curly headed woman is on the porch, wearing nothing but white socks, a banjo, and a smile. Her fingers travel lightly, hardly a neophyte, her music delights all on the wooden boards, and incites her listeners to the dance.

The dog door of the tavern swings constantly. Dogs, cats, possum, (and a moose?) use the trees as their playground, then return to the tavern for warm laps to curl up in.

The traveler would peek in the windows to see the curiosities held within. Along the wall, the worn bar offers a variety of delights. In the center of the bar rests a small lighted shrine rejoicing in the credit card that is Bert's....

The traveler enters, tripping over a pile of warm fuzzies that was left close to the door. A warm Hespearian voice tells him to "Take two, they're small" and he does...and with one fuzzy under each arm he promises a game of euchre before the night is over.

The volume on the big screen television is turned off. A small group watches a baseball game. Music as a metaphor for life, this game is a metaphor for the tavern, since most of these people are on their firsts, seconds, and thirds by the looks of it. Inbetween plays, the patriarchal Rick is quizzing the lot of them and grinning like a Sugar Dog.

The traveler slides on offal from the jello pit, and accidentally walks into the Brassieriatorium before finding his own cozy spot to watch the proceedings.

One small corner of the tavern holds a group of renegades, debating the creative genius of an ex-Monkee. A Mousetheif plays "Some of Shelley's Blues" on the jukebox.

The European contingent is holding a certain Bron hostage, snogging wildly, and regaling the others with pictures and tales of Llanstock past, and plans for Llanstocks future.

In an area piled with pillows, fluffy sofas, and reading lights a red-headed woman is consoling a love-lorn young man. The woman gives the young man a hug before curling up on a sofa with the Moose and the Professor to dream up a fabulous tale. The Sugar Dog curls up on her lap for a while before chasing the possum out the door.

The tavern tonight holds all of this and more.....

I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
I'll sing my visions to the sky-high mountains
I'll sing my song to the free
To the free

When I walked in through the door
Thought it was me I was looking for
She was the first song I ever sang
But it stopped as soon as it began

Our love is over
It's all behind me
They're all ahead now
Can't hope to find to me

I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
I'll sing my visions to the sky-high mountains
I'll sing my song to the free
To the free

The song is over
I'm left with only tears
I must remember
Even if it takes a million years

The song is over
The song is over
Excepting one note, pure and easy
Playing so free like a breath rippling by...

In the dark cool autumn night outside the mudcat Cavern Tavern, a soft wind helps the early falling of red leaves from maples, tan from oak, find their way to the ground. The wind pauses, as though startled for a moment, but the leaves, now begunin their descent, make their way toward destiny in graceful, lilting swoops through the night's soft dark. Pale shadows and ripples of moonlight cascade across the receding hills into the sugared forests of the mountains behind the Tavern. The yellow light of the Tavern windows falls outward and splashes a brief distance across the parking lot before surrenderign to a soft, cool autumnal darkness, laced with moonbeams.

The chatter inside the tavern, the flames from the jello-pit, the clink of virtual glasses, are a bundle of cheery sounds. Heat rises into the mnight in waves from the busy kitchen and bar. You can see it wqavering into the night air from outside like waves from hot asphalt in summer. But the night is cool and absorbs them.

In a sudden gust of wind,the chatter of the Tavern in its many dimensiuons seems for a moment to suspend, all voices reaching a pause point simultaneously in the strange synchronicity of large groups in small places. And in the pause an ancient sound comes back through the night, ewafts in through the windows, down the chimbleys, across the tavern floor, through the ponderous forms suspended in the jello pit. It is a deepthroated rumble, a watery sound like a large boat in still summer waters, a low-pitched bass bubbling out the rhtyhms ofunlimited and unused power. The sound grows from a faint whisper over the country hills, and approaches veering andf snaking along the linesof the small two-lane blacktop road that runs in front of the Tavern,bound from Anywhere to All Points. As the rumble, soft and liquid, grows louder, those who have spent ime here before look at each other in recognition.

It is the sweet liquid basso profundo of a 1939 Indian, drawing closer and closer. As it pummels the doors and windows of the Tavern a green glow seems to stream back in through the windowpanes, overriding thre Tavern's firelight and candleglow with an eerie celestial vibration of green light. It dances momentarily across the walls and floors of the busy Tavern, a verdant sparkle laced with golden flecks, a hum of its own, and it stretches and fades as the sweet deep murmur of the giant Indian motorcylce rolls by and away into the autumn evening, bound for destinations unannounced but tinged surely with its own precise rhythm of divinity...
