I'll tell you a story
    About Jack a Nory;
    And now my story's begun;
    I'll tell you another
    Of Jack and his brother,
    And now my story is done.

The rhyme was first recorded when published in The Top Book of All, for little Masters and Misses around 1760.

Jackanory is also the title of the long running children's programme on the BBC

BTW - The old Victorian collectors, including the venerable Mr Sharpe, seem to have had similar views on 'the noble savage' as they did on the noble English peasant. I wonder why they were so wrong about their own culture yet got it spot on about one so far away. If only we had stayed carving wood and skinning animals we could have been as good as our brothers across the water by now!

Maybe stronger rose tints are needed. Or maybe it is my medication...

Not at all. You have to have The Spirit to be as good as them. You have to understand about Mother Earth, our part in it, and know The Prophecies..many of which are coming true now, I'm afraid...

I tell you what, when you have the Spirit & Widsom of John Trudell, Chief Oren Lyons or Floyd Red Crow Westerman, come back and see me, and then, I may get my Respect Voting Cards out and give you a much higher score....

Oh, and when what is coming finally arrives, it will be the ones who know how to carve the wood, skin the animals and live in harmony with nature, who will be the ones who will be left tell the tale, so please, do not belittle them, learn from them.

I can't knit BTNG! Heaven forbid! I am one of the depraved, dim-witted, uncouth, morris-dancing skin-heads that occupies western society and lives off killing the puppies belonging to harmless, indiginous tribes.

The fact that I can write programs in shell and SQL; debug Unix and Linux servers; troubleshoot networks; actualy kill, skin and butcher animals; grow my own vegetables and cereals; construct a shelter that survived last winter and feed a family of 7 is obviously a complete untruth because I am not called 'Two Dogs Fucking' and I don't paint myself. Well, other than the odd bit of camo and the occasional spot of eye-liner.

Just figured out the rose tinted glass issue. It works far better at great distances:-)

Spot on BTNG - There is room for all types of music. None is any better or worse than the other - Just different. Exactly the same as people. In the words of the esteemed Mr Dylan -

I've heard you say many times
That you're better 'n no one
And no one is better 'n you
If you really believe that
You know you have
Nothing to win and nothing to lose


I really, really people would get that message and not start arguments on the premise that one type of music or one type of person is better than another.

Lizzie, sex does not need a defence mechanism. It's sad that you are so threatened by it. Women can dress as they please and do as they please.

As to tribal traditions, the first thing the incomer has to do is to listen and learn. Playing a flute or a nose flute is not necessarily "folk". It might be. It might not be. It depends.

You have reaped as you have sown, in terms of hostility, because of the irrational and indefensible things you spout. There are no folk police, no folk nazis, no folk storm troopers - well, hardly any. Like Don Quixote, and with as much sense, you are tilting at windmills.

I don't feel threatened by sex, Richard, but....I do feel kinda weird about men who'd rather see a woman dressed as a slut, than a woman who's dressed in a different manner, for call me narrow-minded, but I think the first would be entertaining his nether regions, whilst the second would be boring him bloody rigid.

I have a *brain*, Richard (yes, I hear you all)...and it's above my boobs, far more entertaining than them too, and unlike my boobs it isn't heading downwards at such alarming speed, so it's far more entertaining to dabble and dance with!

Once women DID dress as they wanted to. Now they dress as they've been brain-washed to dress, as sluts...and it starts when they're very tiny, sadly...

And as I've said before, I don't do the 'sex' thing, I do the 'Love' thing, so there....Sticky out tongue, in a non-sexual manner, smiley.


Folkiedave...I hear the Turnip Season is extraordinarily good this year. Gather them in while ye can and put them in your special place where the sun don't shine, for ye may keep them longer that way and the Recession is upon us, after all...

Johncharles!! I KNEW it!! See! Didn't I tell y'all!! Ha! I think that link is deserving of a Kiss! xxx

Now, Big Al, WHERE do I start with you???? I would say 'Bend over!" but somehow, I think that could be the wrong thing to come out with! 'Tis lucky for ye that you're a FB friend of mine, that's all I'll say...and I'll let you off this time, as you quietly endure my numerous postings in relative good humour.

"You have to understand about Mother Earth, our part in it,"

Actually Lizzie, I think I do know a bit about that. I've read widely on the subject and have observed my local patch in great detail.

Mind you I haven't got round to driving whole buffalo herds off cliffs, like the Arikara, in North Dakota, did in the 19th century. They used to take what meat they needed and leave the rest to rot in a great, stinking pile.

I've never really understood this thing about Native American 'spirituality'. After all most of the tribes were primarily interested in warfare and were not above slaughtering their enemies to the last child. I often get the impression that when the West was being invaded by Anglo-Americans the various tribes were much more interested in fighting each other than in resisting the invaders.

Anyway, I'm not really sure what any of this has to do with English Folk Music or 'occupying' it.

BTNG - Definition of Troll -

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

I suggest you look back through the post to see who who started the topic, who wanted to 'provoke readers' and check whether my post was off-topic. Although I suspect you know the answer.

I like sad ballads

lovers for a day
Songs separated by several hundred years but, both, in their way addressing issues about the human condition.

I think Lizzy's got a point. We should occupy English folk music with lots of ladies in mini skirts. If you ask me, when Mary Hopkin and July Felix were on telly a lot and you got the occasional glimpse of gusset, that did a lot more for folk music than all this Cecil Sharp crap.

Well done Lizzy! Lead by example, and give us all a flash! I'll mount the barricades with you - if you go up first. I'll be right behind you - elbowing the others out the way.
