And I awoke yet again with chalk on my hands...this sleep-bouldering has got to have a cure!

A Scene from the movie.
I always wonder where in the heck the filmmakers locate their scenes.
This is definitely the foothills in the Mother Lode.

I always, too, don't like at all the practice of taking biblical quotations and eliding the verses to suit your own use. But it's a practice that has gone unquestioned for a long time in entertainment history. There's an elided quote at the end of the picture.
In fairness to Mark, the evangelist, and his Master:

And Jesus answering them began to say,
Take heed lest any man deceive you:
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ; and shall deceive many.
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

End of rant. Beginning of...quien sabe?

In the end of the movie, young Casper sends! Literally, he is reborn out of the earth by MAKING THE RIGHT MOVES! There are those who might say his bible reading got him the blessing of the Lord, but tell that to him, by God!

A worthwhile flicker-picture.

The Great Crows Landing Massacre.

A few seconds after this shot, black feathers filled the air and then blew away on the wings of the wind, leaving the world's biggest and worst ever Crow-B-Que lying on the ground.

The boys from the Tacos Durango truck were there in two minutes with their plastic shopping bags. It does NOT taste like chicken, but it has a South Texas tang, for sure.

Aside from the photographer & the boys from the taco truck, these gents and ladies at the R Bar, Merced's least finest, were the sole witnesses.

True story.

Saturday Night in Merced.

Oh, lucky me...
Is it modern humanism or post-modern humanism, donini?

This ain't your mama's humanism, that's for sure.

Mnemosyne (/nɨˈmɒzɨniː/ or /nɨˈmɒsɨni/; Greek: Mνημοσύνη, pronounced [mnɛːmosżːnɛː]), source of the word mnemonic, was the personification of memory in Greek mythology. A Titanide, or Titaness, she was the daughter of Uranus and Gaia, and the mother of the nine Muses by Zeus:
 Calliope (Epic Poetry)
 Clio (History)
 Euterpe (Music)
 Erato (Lyric Poetry)
 Melpomene (Tragedy)
 Polyhymnia (Hymns)
 Terpsichore (Dance)
 Thalia (Comedy)
 Urania (Astronomy)

Mnemosyne
Mnemosyne

In Hesiod's Theogony, kings and poets receive their powers of authoritative speech from their possession of Mnemosyne and their special relationship with the Muses.

Zeus and Mnemosyne slept together for nine consecutive nights, thus birthing the nine Muses. Mnemosyne also presided over a pool in Hades, counterpart to the river Lethe, according to a series of 4th century BC Greek funerary inscriptions in dactylic hexameter. Dead souls drank from Lethe so they would not remember their past lives when reincarnated. Initiates were encouraged to drink from the river Mnemosyne when they died, instead of Lethe. These inscriptions may have been connected with Orphic poetry (see Zuntz, 1971).

Similarly, those who wished to consult the oracle of Trophonius in Boeotia were made to drink alternately from two springs called "Lethe" and "Mnemosyne".

Reminded of the story of Sam Stone who came home to his wife and family.

In it his boy is wondering where all the money's gone and the line I recall is

lethal pitchers have big ears

which means they remember stuff & sh!t.

But MooseDrool probably would call me on that.

Controversy abounds.

Thanks, Roy.

Oh, yeah, now I remember.

It's Andy Whitman, folks!

The guy with the unusually big ears.

We all know what they say about guys with big ears.

(I'll think of something. On the other hand, I may need to call in MM to save MFM.)

Now that I got coffee-ed up, it's time to beat the banned.

Not only are they banned, they are taken out and brutally tongue-lashed by...help me out, guys.

What else might happen?

Put diapers on them and stick pins in them "accidentally" while doing so.

Get their favorite ice cream and put it in a bowl while they are bound and they gotta watch it melt in the hot Merced/Chico/Flagstaff/Chula Vista sun.

Send: climb it successfully.

Descend: go back down.

Since many have not gone up the cable route on Tissyak,
but only down it, this might not appeal to them.

There are countless numbers of people who have done both.

There are countless numbers of people who might like to try it.

This is my bit for encouraging them NOT to try, to encourage them to be happy with this view, thus relieving the crowding on the route.

Either way, going up, going down, or going sideways, (*slurp*) enjoy it.

That was a coffee slurp, Fritz.

Just a thought, brought on by this espresso.

A race to the top of the Cable Route ON YOUR KNEES.

Pads mandatory. And good gloves, too. Sun hat. Sunscreen.

Maps obligatory. And compass, of course. I pod. Tripod. Camera, too.

It's a handicap race, see, based on a system yet to be determined.

zBrown been up & down
And lotsa others, too.
They sent the descent,
It's just a day's Class Two.

Stay between the lines.

Has anyone ever Mtn-biked up (send) or down (you send me) those cables?

Give it to me in plain black and white (or perhaps a plain zBrown rapper).
