I am shocked & dismayed that once again my honorable name has been brought up in regard to this thread!

True, it is a wonderful thread from a wonderful institution with wonderful music for a wonderful guy, but, let the musicians who did the Joe Offer Waltz enjoy their laurels without someone trying to discredit them by crediting someone else!

In a post up above, one fellow called FuckYou Charlie or something like thet sed ....

But whatta ya exspeck frum a lowdown place like thet Tweedburg joint. It warn't too bad considerin' th' source.


I am flumoxxed by this attack on my exceptionally fine establishment and habv recorded an' distrubited many famous artistes in my elaborit studios, all obv whom have gone on to higher degrees obv obscurities. I tharfore ask, nay I demand an apoplexy from this FuckYou person or whoever he really iz.

Also,

HAPPY UN~BIRFDAY TO YOU, JOE OFFER


I would think this would be a musical thread also, but az it is yore unbirthday thread you may do wif it what you will. If you only knew the lengths thet Khnadnuddz and I went through to get yore song on the air you would probably put it in some entirely new category altogether named HorseShit or summat like that.

Yore derefriend an' admirer,
Tweed

I'm not sure I can see the reason for this thread.

If it is just to recognise all that Joe has to 'Offer' then let me add my appreciation of the hard work he clearly puts in


CHEERS Joe

This is wonderful!! The "LDOFJ C of FM, I" seems to be ia fine institution!
The "Joe Offer Waltz" brought tears to my eyes; it was obviously heart-felt! I was impressed with Cary Okie's singing as well as Noble Onie's guitar & that's no baloney! But there was no mention of the fellow who played the ululator! Who was he? He was great!
I am a bit bemused by fellow-member darkriver. He/she seems to imply that I, khandu, am the "guest" that created this thread. I am not!! True, I created the "No Joe Offer Birthmonth Thread", but, it is clear that I was somewhat distraught at the perceived lack of interest demonstrated regarding the Joe Offer Birthmonth. Indeed, this thread is quite exciting & uplifting! I could not be the author of both, lest I be manic! (which I am not!)(Also, I am sure that Joe Offer's "magic eye" can see that I didn't post it!)

I am also somewhat bewildered at Joe Offer's sense of "moral obligation" to put this in the BS section! This is most certainly a Music thread!! It has a song, lyrics request & even a Committee of Fine Music!

Yes! This is a musical thread!!

However it is Joe's Birthmonth & his "Waltz" & his "Music Thread" & he has been entrusted with discretionary powers so the decision to BS this fine Music thread is his, and I support him!

Howbeit, I enjoyed the song & agree with all when I say "HAPPY BIRTHMONTH, JOE!!"

That was some nice music, here in this BS thread.

This thread wasn't started by GUEST. It was started by Harry Lee Wigley. Didn't anyone see the signature at the bottom of the opening post?

Oh dear, the Joe Offer gravitas dept has slipped a little.

Joe, you will be down to our level soon but I like the irony ........ but maybe a long pair of tongs are more fitting ( and a pooper scooper)

oh my...moral obligations DO get sticky, don't they? That was a purely MUSICAL "offering" to my way of thinking..('tweren't yer neighbors, Joe..I heered it too...I think it was an expression of Universal Sadness about advancing age)

I'm not sure that I have to be sober to understand it, but I'll try back when I am.

There's got to be some irony in this thread being started by GUEST.

Happy B-Day Joe.


Off to drink again - see you all tomorrow.

Oh, gee....I'm honored, I guess.
But I guess I have a moral obligation to move this to the non-music side of the forum. Is that a dog I hear howling in the background on the recording - or is it my neighbor's dog howling because I'm playing the recording?

An offhanded remark by a stranger inspired this thread!
Recently at an orchestral concert, I was distracted
by two guest whispering between themselves. I overheard one ask "Why are
there so few Joe Offer Music threads?"

I could not get that question out of my mind. I had to agree with the
strangers; there are far too few Joe Offer Music threads! I
decided to do something about it. I wondered & I pondered & I sweated &
I fretted until I knew what to do. I ran posthaste & presented my idea
before the LET'S DO ONE FOR JOE COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
INTERNATIONAL
& all two of us overwhelmingly voted to implement my
plan.

Hence,this is the Joe Offer Music Thread which, purely by
happenstance, has been posted on this day, August 1, the
onset of the Joe Offer Birthmonth!

Now, to part one of the musical involvement; I seek the lyrics of an
obscure song entitled "Happy Birthday to Joe ".
The only lyrics I have are :

"Happy Birthday to Joe
Happy Birthday to Joe
Happy Birthday Joe Offer
Happy Birthday to Joe"

I would greatly appreciate any additional lyrics! I have diligently
searched the net & found nothing!

Part two of the musical involvement:

Part of the original plan of the LDOFJ COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
INTERNATIONAL
was to create a song to honor Joe Offer. We
sought a songwriter, a musician & a singer & found two people brave
enough to undertake such a task! They are Noble Onie,
songwriter & guitarist, and Cary Okie, an Irish tenor with a
powerful baritone voice!

The LDOFJ COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC, INTERNATIONAL is excited
about the resulting product! We rushed to the Electric TweedyLand
Studio
& recorded it.

Noble Onie's guitar work is somewhat adequate; however, The
Irish tenor Cary Okie will send chills down your spine with his
amazing baritone! Truly, it is an awe inspiring performance!

Of course, such an undertaking is costly & we could not have done it
with out our sponsors.

Funding for this product was provided in part by The National
Endowment for Women Who Spit
, and by a grant from The Random Axe
of God
.

Web Space for the MP3 is enthusiastically, graciously & temporarily
provided by the beloved TWEED, one of the Mudcat Cafe's
foremost and well-respected members, & the MAYOR OF TWEEDSBURG.

Our thanks to all who gave so wonderfully! May we be forever in your
debt!

Without further ado, Click to hear the JOE OFFER
BIRTHMONTH WALTZ
; performed & recorded in honor of the man who
wishes he could do better but always does good enough; the
greatly esteemed and highly lauded JOE OFFER!

HAPPY BIRTHMONTH JOE OFFER!!!

H L Wigley;
President of the LET'S DO ONE FOR JOE COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
INTERNATIONAL
