Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
I began a thread this morning after R4 in The Write Stuff had taken the piss out of Morris in an educated, pastiche sort of way. The responses fell into two categories:
(1) even more inanely idiotic than anything Matthew Parris (or Fi Glover) ever uttered, and
(2) those demonstrating a complete unawareness that the programme was a spoof.
The thread has been sent to the basement.
Leaving aside the reality that the current list of topics here upstairs includes:
*a variety of only partly music-related ailments
*arrangements to meet up for what appears to be a cross between an orgy and a piss-up
*stuff about how to get your computer to function (I know there's some sort of tradition that "tech" stays upstairs but I'm unable to fathom why
*a few threads about books,
and so on,
this highlights clearly the contempt in which traditional dance is held by contributors generally of the GEFF tendency to this forum. When they are so disrespectful our cultural heritage themselves, it puzzles me why they are in any way concerned at what a gay former MP has to say about trad singing. Or am I?
