I was going to say something snarky along the lines of "Don't like the internet? Blogs? Heck, don't like television? Let's go back to having fun good old days- style then, shall we?" and then point to a video of Morris Dancing. But then I remembered Morris Dancing kicks ass. Especially, say, Morris Dancing with a gothic sensibility. And a litle Terry Pratchett thrown in for good measure.
The music starts
Dance, we do a few pre-determined moves
Chorus, we clash sticks like we practised
Dance, we do some more moves
The music ends
Some traditional activities could certainly do with a revival. I think it is high time for an Annex Cornish Hurling League, for example (hat tip to a kind reader). The St. Columb ball is basically a Silver Snitch; sure to catch on with the Harry Potter generation.
Reason not to hand over the internet to an international bureaucracy Number, like, A Billion or something Update: The EU braintrust wants to regulate amateur internet video under European broadcast regulations. I am only surprised the Canadian version of stupid did not think of it first.
Reason A Billion and one Update: Iran is banning fast internet access.
