Abi Sutherland on the demise of Morris dancing in England.

Short version - the Morris Ring have gone off on one again, and the BBC took them at face value. Long version - lots of links and videos and descriptions of interesting Morris variants around the globe.

Steampunk morris does indeed need to happen...

I believe the misreading is canonical!

Everyone says steampunk morris needs to happen. The thing is, there are three basic traditions of steampunk - the sartorial one, the Robot Wars one, and the anything-goes-recycled-improvised-handmade-found-object-just-make-it-work one.

At least the Beeb only say "a Morris association" and not "the main Morris association" or anything like that.
