Subject: Hello to New Members
From: wysiwyg
Date: 13 Feb 02 - 03:27 PM

From time to time a thread has run introducing and welcoming new members. Sometimes a member will introduce you, sometimes you introduce yourself. Do jump in if you are new in these parts and want to introduce yourself. (And do read the FAQ conveniently located at the top of the daily thread list.)

I started this one to welcome The Pooka. He started as "Guest, Oulmole," and has decided to join up. (I understand, actually, that "The Pooka" is short for a much longer name, but he can tell you about that.) The Pooka is a very punny guy and I am sure that in no time he and Art Thieme will be slamming the jokes around pretty thick.

Welcome, The Pooka!

~Susan

"Six feet and a half" Carol......

Wilson, the attendant at Chumley's rest is looking up Pooka in the encyclopedia-------"A fairy spirit that appears in animal form, always very large. The pooka appears here and there, now and then, to this one and to that one. A benign but mischievious creature, very fond of rum-pots, crack-pots, and how are you Mr. Wilson?" Mr. Wilson?........(he flips the book over, shakes it, and finally throws it down saying, Who in the encyclopedia wants to know?"......Aw to hell with it!!!

I love "Harvey"......Never saw any incarnation I didn't like. All that aside....

WELCOME POOKA!!!


.....and believe me we got some real crackpots around here!

I'm not quite new, but I was recently thinking that I probably should have introduced myself when I joined up. Heard about Mudcat through my dear friend Dani, then she cajoled my sister and me into going to the 2002 Getaway with her. Had a great, restorative time, met a bunch of Mudcatters and a long lost friend, checked out the site when I got home and the rest is history. My main musical talent is appreciation. And I really appreciate all of the knowledgeable people who post to Mudcat. Thanks.

Hi, I'm Rolfyboy6,I've been a member for a couple of months and a lurker and rare "Guest,Rolfyboy6" poster for more than a year. I'm one of the denizens of Tweedsblues. I joined when I realized what was going on with certain guests. Also I figured out the other benefits. My big interests are blues, bluegrass, and old-timey music. Just another old folkie in some ways, and I started hanging out in the jukes and honkytonks young.

Hee hee hee you folks are great. Of course I already knew that, from my Oulmole/Guest days; but now I'm one of you ("yer with yer own kind now", WYSIWIG Susan has assured me)(hmmm) so that makes me great too. (Uhh..that's the Rule, right? I read that in the FAQ's, I'm sure)

Thanks to Susan for encouraging me & for starting this thread; and also to Susane (skw)(did I get that right?) for reassuring me in a past thread that you don't have to be a total folkie Expert to be a 'Catter (did I get THAT right??); and to Sorcha for helping me with lyrics search; and to all of you who've made me feel welcome.

And another big welcome to all the other new members herein! (Hey! Let's take over! NONONO jussssstkidding ahem)

NAOW then. Sorcha: this "spritely one" thanks you. I was gonna be Legolas but I think it's taken. But Neigh, I'm I'm not the Horsey type. (Frau BLUcher!)(And now, live from the Toora Loora Boora mountains---Christianne Amanpour! Nowait! Looksism! Nevermind.)As for checking under bridges, I understand Max is getting rid of the Trolls so why bother? / Deckman Bob: Izzit properly (more better)pukka? Damn. Well I didn't know. Learning already. I thought of being stukka, but only Guests can be dive-bombers & I've gone legit now. Annyway, zese hiere fokkers vass messerschmidts./ CarolC: No I'm not six feet tall but my wife is. Really, she is. Name of Chicago Molly ....As to Invisible, I was but I gave up the One Ring for a Cookie from Max. Wasn't easy. My Preciousssss..... Catspaw: Six and a HALF? Jaysus. Do I have to get a taller wife? Thanks for the research and the giant-lettered welcome. (How do ye do that?) O so it's rumpots & crackpots, izzit? I KNEW it was a good name choice; now I know why. I didn't have Harvey in mind; uhh, but um well yeah I like him too. I also like Clarence, he's such an angel...I'm getting Excessive here, ain't I? Newbiepooka trying too hard....I was actually about to use Harvey to flirt with Catspaw....that's not allowed here, right? :) Not by me sixfoot Wife it ain't, no.. Look---lemme go & look up why the Hell I DID choose Pooka & come back again (Oh the Humanity!!) & feign expertise in Celtic mythology, OK? Don't answer that. Thankyouall

mmm1a - No I never chatted on Lycos. Never chatted much on anything to speak of. (Or spoke much on anything to chat of, for that matter.) I'm kinda new at this, truth be told. (Now, my sixfoot Wife, oy dot's another story, don't get me started..) Thank you for the welcome.

Harpgirl & Catspaw 49: Yes, on a recent "How Deep is Your Musical Knowledge" (or somethinglikethat) thread, I described myself as a shallow-running crankbait. (Busted, begob.)It's a type of fishing lure. Doesn't go too deep, y'see. But now that I'm a Member, my trolling days are over. Heh heh. But Catspaw, the crackpot Crankbait was me, not you. You're more like the light & fluffy wind that brings a ripple across the waves. :)

MudcatName: I didn't pick my Guest handle Oulmole because I didn't want to impinge in any way upon the memory of the late beloved L.R. Mole, once I had learned of his greatness and his untimely passing. Very sorry I never knew him. My name, while generic, is intended as a shortened (for spacesaving) reference to The Pooka Fergus MacPhellimey, a character of the late writer Flann O'Brien (aka Myles na Gopoleen - Miles of the Little Horses)(hey Sorcha, I got yer spritely Horsies right heeah). The Pooka has been described as "an Irish devil in human form." Humbly, I shall do my best to live up to this legacy. Thank you. Glad to be here.

Welcome Pooka, Jainie, Greg, Harpmaker, Rolfyboy 6. You'll be glad you joined up. I assume most of you have tried it out already so you know enough to ignore the "guest threads" as having any great part of the ongoing discussions, even though the issue being discussed is important. It will soon be resolved and things will get back to normal.

Gee, it's nice to see this thread of people joining. The more the merrier !

Wow - bunch of Folks coming out to say "Howdy" to us!! Be Welcome - Harmaker, C-Flat, Janie, Pooka, Toribw, HuwG (would that be Hug in code?), and Rolfy from the Tweed (we met earlier there)!!! This is the last bastion of fully accredited insanity that actually borders on normalcy.

I've gotta plug the Sunday "Mudcat Song Circle" on Paltalk. We start at 1 PM Mudcat time (Eastern time zone). If you are unfamiliar with Paltalk there are tons of threads on it or you can PM me and I'll be more specific about what, where, when, and maybe even why!! We have an international group that participates and it is a blend of whatever the musicians bring to the circle.

We also insist that all levels of ability come and participate. We have some folks who are just beginning and some long time players that are pretty good. It's the most supportive group on the internet for music!! Come in - sing - play - or listen and provide the applause - - *BG*

(O God Bless England is my Prayer...) Love the gaelic tongues with the kind of pure chaste love that dinna speak 'em, so to speak. (Hey, I've even got a little Breton stuff. Been there once, too. Been to Ireland 3 times. Maybe once more, God willing..) I *like* the more recent/current Celtic Revival music, but I don't really KNOW it. Wanna learn more. Old dog, though; new tricks. I'm not a performer. I can sing pretty well. Wife plays guitar competently. I fool around with the oul' tin whistles but...well, 'nuff said. / Now, this IS what you were asking, isn't it? :}
