reminding you of how funny we almost were earlier than now

12 03 2009

probably the first picture of a black dood in climbing blog history. first.

part fiction, part exaggeration, memory is an imperfect vessel for the (re)itteration of past events.  so it comes as no surprise to you that you may have forgotten how funny we almost were earlier than now.  we forgot ourselves actually.  we also forgot ourselves, i mean.  huh?

then we remembered.  it was hilarious.

a list of almost-published posts (aka ‘drafts’):

looking for a nemesis – was going to be called ‘looking for a purpose’.  but then i found one.  in fiction.

aych-oh-tee: how climbing got really sexy – historical look at climbing media to see who ‘let the dawgs out’.

grade inflation starts with me – it did, but then i had/have an intervention on myself.  with myself?.  intervened on myself?  hmm.  there might not be a way to make this work.

becoming a climbing blog – i lay out a brief typology of climbing blogs then figure out the best way to get hits is to climb harder.  then figure out i need to figure out how to climb harder.  decide to just watch climbing videos instead.

rapping about climbing is hard – follow up to a published post about rapping.  in this installment i explain how i can’t.

the obligatory goals post – probably the non-post of the year.  wrote it AND left it sitting there.  obligatory just got a little bit less obligationy.

confessions of a rockclimbings invalid – ground/heartbreaking tale about an injured climber.  first-person.  so you get to hear about how much it sucks.  again.  from someone else.  again.

people who read about failure… hello! – i seriously get about 20 hits a day from people searching for “failure”.  this was my attempt to either a) fail for them or b) get them into climbing so they could fail at something else.  it failed to be published.

intense, almost, but not quite.  they’re drafts people.

thanks for reading.

Oh come on, you can’t be a tease like that and not expect your faithful readers to ask, nay, demand to see some of these esquisses (pardon my french). Personally, I’d be interested in reading the “becoming a climbing blog” post, however unfinished it may be, granted you got past the title.

of course all these are fake titles steve.

was it not clear this entire post was just a setup for the bill cosby pic/diversity knock?

I am a bit disappointed, but also confident that you will pull through, and come up with a brilliant post to fill that title. I’m sure you feel a bit guilty for bringing my hopes up.

Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy fucking walrus-looking piece of shit! Get the fuck off of my obstacle! Get the fuck down off of my obstacle! NOW! MOVE IT! Or I’m going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world! I will motivate you, Private Pyle, IF IT SHORT-DICKS EVERY CANNIBAL ON THE CONGO!

Sorry, I’m on a Full Metal Jacket kick as of late….

don’t be disappointed. of course these are real posts steve.

was it not clear the above was just a tactic to put more emphasis on the bill cosby pic/diversity knock?
