your beards smell of tobacco and sick
and your saggy old arse dirty jeans smell of wee and poo.

that old folk music of yours smells like a sack of festering cat diarrhea.

Its summer now, get your sounds sorted grandad and learn some Lady Gaga songs.

and no, I don't want Sunday dinner at your horrible favourite pensioners pub.

I want to see my friends and set fire to old cars under the railway bridge.

Lady Gaga is an utterly tedious Madonna clone (who was, God knoweth, tedious enough). In my Young Day we had immediate recompence for such trivia (for me it was Magma and Evan Parker) but today, it seems, we must dig just that little bit deeper.

Anyway, we can't get near the Folk Midden for the young who have claimed it as their own, for good or ill (though festering cat diarrhoea seems about right, especially in sessions). I blame all these Mudcat threads about attracting the young to folk clubs (which always sounded like the most perverse sort of grooming) but I hear tell that there are folk families in which kids go straight from Johnny Seven to Melodeon without once screaming at their parents that they didn't ask to be born.

So - more likely it will be the bearded old folkies setting fire to cars beneath the arches of the railway bridge (erstwhile or otherwise) if only to keep the chill from their bones, forever singing about how good the old one used to be.

I think, in all fairness, that one should point out the smell of the young after a weekend in the mud at a typical British "summer" rock festival - or even smellier but less grubby - one of the very rare truly British SUMMER rock festivals. How I remember the corrugated iron fences around the arena area - rotted right through for about a foot off the ground from blokes pissing on them rather than hold their breath while using one of the fetid portaloos (the few left standing).

Folk has absolutely NOTHING on rock festivals for mank. Or skank.


And we properly understand the grumpy artform.

This is a good example of why we call folk music "Heavy MENTAL".It takes a mature brain to understand it.

We had a young person turn up at our grumpy old folk club last night. She obviously hadn't a clue what it was all about, still less how to behave, but she sat through two guitar-based songs. Then I got my concertina out and she was out of there. Probably best result for all concerned.

Guest, use your brain. You can't set fire to the cars under the railway bridge because someone might be living in them. Judging from your usage or spelling, you are British. So you might not care about the homeless, but keep in mind that there might be PETS hidden in those cars.

(Should I type, "Y'all are British" because you claim to be more than one person?)

However that may be, your failure to think this through makes my blood run cold.

In certain regions of UK and USA (since when were American more likely to give care about anyone but themselves, homeless or othewise?) cars would be more likely to be set alight if people were living in them. And not just by kids. Sad but true. But even back in the Depression years of the thirties, Hobos and other vagrants faced the violence of an intolerent society which all migrants (individuals & cultures) have faced over the millenia.

Mostly though, people are okay. As ever, exceptions prove rules.

Last week I went to a performance by 8 drum & bugle corps, and one corps did a number by Lady Gaga. Surely this is evidence that Lady Gaga is washed up among the young and hip.

I realize I'm not supposed to point this out, but the joke has gone on long enough, I think. The original poster is obviously not a young person, because a young person wouldn't write "I want to see my friends and set fire to old cars.."

A young person would write "I wnt 2 C my frends & set fire 2 old cars." It's subtle, but it's a dead giveaway.

From Grade 9 biology: Cell theory: all cells come from previously existing cells.

From wikipedia:

The generally accepted parts of modern cell theory include:

All known living things are made up of one or more cells.
All living cells arise from pre-existing cells by division.
The cell is the fundamental unit of structure and function in all living organisms.
The activity of an organism depends on the total activity of independent cells.
Energy flow (metabolism and biochemistry) occurs within cells.
Cells contain hereditary information (DNA) which is passed from cell to cell during cell division.
All cells are basically the same in chemical composition in organisms of similar species.

Some things do change, Don. Do you follow the comic strip "Sally Forth"? Young Hilary (about 13 years old) wants to play music at her aunt's wedding reception, but it turns out her garage band's original songs are all about werewolves.

That wouldn't have happened 50 years ago. The occasional purple people-eater, yes, but not a steady stream of werewolves.

Stinky?

A week in a small tent, on a muddy campsite with limited washing facilities, can leave anybody a bit stinky. If you don't think that's a price worth paying for all the fun of the festival, then stay home, bathe regularly, and do whatever turns you on.

Grumpy?

Look carefully at the world as it is. Then imagine how much better it might be if more thought, more effort, and more goodwill were applied in the right places. If the difference between those two visions doesn't make you a bit grumpy, you are probably in need of counselling.


Old?

Growing old happens to everyone who keeps on living. It has some negative aspects, but most of us believe it's better than the alternative. If you disagree, the exit door is over there - if not, lighten up and join the party.

Music?

If the music you like is just noise to me
While the music I love sounds like rubbish to you,
Then you enjoy yours and leave me to mine,
Or as the French put it 'Chacun a son gout'.

Wassail!

With all respect, the thing about folk music is that it is not a matter of form so if the forms you use can cross-fertilise the folk songs and melodies - go for it. If the age of the participants matters more than the music, sorry dude but you are not a musician.
