I see that The Ship of Fools is described as a Christian Website!

Thanks for the link mrWaters, an old chorister mate of mine. And a very interesting subject, to boot.

I prefer the Church Times coverage to the Daily Mail. It's worksafe, too!
Good old Church Times, it doesn't need to show pictures - the description is perfectly ample to anyone with half an imagination....

And, as an added bonus, you get an excellent Noel Ford cartoon thrown in. As another bowdlerised space quote puts it: 'It's Advent, Jim, but not as we know it'.

The Freethinker also noted the Badvent. I'm not sure some of the commentators know what Ship of Fools is.

I'm not sure some commentators know what anything is, but that's the sorry state of modern journalism.

Badvent also gets a mention in The Week, in the "Spirit of the Age" column on page 6.
I do like The Week, it's a very handy publication.

The way the article was written, the only way you'd know the calendar poll was meant to be a joke would be by visiting the site.

Noted on the Beeb, in an article on Christingle.

I always thought it commemorated Jesus' first school handicraft project...

They must have particularly skilled and dedicated researchers - the article they link to is in Oblivion.

Either that or the writer is a ship reader and just automatically comes here when looking for something liturgically bizarre. The full collection of threads stored on the ship from Ecclesiantics, Mystery Worship, and Small Fires boards probably mean that the ship is the best place to trace eclectic worship practices and beats any published text. It is not the depth it is the variety.

True, but they still have to actually find anything in Oblivion - and we've all been there, done that, lost that afternoon. There're probably shipmates lost in there who've been there for weeks.

Not really. Christingle is a big help. Just use google advanced, so you are only looking at the boards, and then search for cristingle. Only five pages and most of those can be ignored.

The work of an hour or so at most for someone whose business it is to find these things.

Not so much lost as made to sit there for a time and think about whatever it is they've done. [Biased]

Oblivion goes back to 2010, and looking at the size of it, probably needs a tidy before it gets out of control. For anything older than that, including threads from the boards that no longer exist like Urban Myths etc, then look in Limbo.

A VERY late media sighting. I was reading Stuart Maconie's book Adventures on the high teas when I came across a reference to Ship of Fools. Very surprised. [Smile]

With reference to the Stuart Maconie reference to S of F in "Adventures on the High Teas", it starts by discussing Vaughan Williams' Down Ampney tune and how many people love it dearly, though others dislike it equally intensely:-

"And this is from a web forum called Ship of Fools, where con­trib­u­tors can ex­co­ri­ate the most hated kinds of peo­ple they know and con­demn them to eter­nal damna­tion:
‘I call to Hell all those who take it upon them­selves to lengthen the minim (half-note) at the halfway mark in Vaughan Williams’ fab­u­lous tune “Down Amp­ney”. This in­cludes the ed­i­tors of the lat­est An­gli­can Church of Canada hymn-book (Comic Praise), but also the mu­si­cians on BBC Choral Even­song broad­cast re­cently from St En­del­lion in Corn­wall. It de­flates the whole feel­ing of move­ment … Bring back the In­qui­si­tion, I say …’
There is some­thing of the very soul of Mid­dle Eng­land in this too, I feel. "

Not exactly a media sighting, but it's nice to imagine that this policy change by Tesco was brought about by a May 2014 Hell thread (now sadly extinct).
