The Point - 1971

I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, "Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it." – Harry Nilsson[2]

And zBrown and Tobia, remember the time when the Spanish teacher tried to tell that story about the three blind friends, one had the papers, one had the dooobie, and one drooled all the time, and so they took one of their juans and smoked one in the john with Juan and when they got done they were so stoned they couldn't remember? I can't remember how it ended, but I love that story. Awesome!

Is that a pointed question? An interrogative gesture perhaps, which you have cloaked in a double meaning, to stir up our pointless lives, our abandoned premises (of there being a point in this pointless thread/discussion)?

"Do you always begin conversations this way?" (men in black)

"Are my kids cute, or do they make people uncomfortable?" (Donkey, in Shrek)

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" (Mad Hatter/Alice in Wonderland)

"What is the use of a house if you don't have a tolerable planet to put it on?" (Thoreau)

"Are you a good witch or a bad witch?" (Glinda/Wizard of Oz)

"What if the dinosaurs come back while we're all asleep?" (Jurassic Park)

"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?" (Vince Lombardi)

etc...

So, point & shoot! Worked fer Doc Holliday of OK Corral fame. Point & shoot (scatter gun/sawed off 10 gauge)! NOBODY, asked Doc a pointless qustion. Nahmean, brah?

I just finished the TR put up by Rocknicenut about the EB of EC. Never did get to climb it (yet?) all these years.

And a photo from the 1964 YV guide by Roper flashed into my head. Willi Unsoeld on the buttress, traversing. Or was it Al Steck on YPB? I have CRS and it's getting slowly more irksome. Belay that, it's not the point.

This led to my seeking that picture of Willi and in so seeking I saw this:
http://www.nicros.com/training/articles/finding-your-own-path-in-the-climbing-world/

This thing we do, this climbing, it's seductive. Taunting peaks in the clouds, romantic pictures of old grandads out on extreme 5.9, and the whistling of wind off the cliffs, augmented by campfire/picnic table talk.

I was at Coffee Bandits this afternoon, and Chip, about 35-40, who works there has been to YV once. I showed him my copy of Fitschen's book yesterdy and today he informed me that he was goina take up rock climbing.

I shook his hand and said I'd supply him with some advice and that it was free. You know how that is seen. Anyway, he came back to me later with thanks, and told me that he has a 28 year old GF who's a climber (found out from Alyssa in the used book store she's also a bike-riding fool) and that he ought not to get involved with other things like history, etc., and that it was important to him to learn the basics blah-blah. It didn't hurt my feelings any, for sure. He was polite and it's all good.

I got home and could not find the photo of Willi, if it even exists outside of my mind (CRS--can't remember sht), but came across the above article.

Funny how that works. Rather a pointed statement of just what Chip was trying to say.

Then I went to the funeral home to set up a cremation plan. On the way back I found this butterfly of fabric in the weeds in the alley.
It occurs to me the body is a chrysalis. Death, then, is life. I'm cool with that.

So, having said that, there's this point and click routine, and what's up with that. Or what's goin' down with that?

Aguas de Marco, de Tom Jobim, immotalaizada pela genial Elis.

É pau, é pedra, é o fim do caminho
É um resto de toco, é um pouco sozinho
É um caco de vidro, é a vida, é o sol
É a noite, é a morte, é um laço, é o anzol
É peroba do campo, é o nó da madeira
Caingá, candeia, é o Matita Pereira

É madeira de vento, tombo da ribanceira
É o mistério profundo, é o queira ou não queira
É o vento ventando, é o fim da ladeira
É a viga, é o vão, festa da cumeeira
É a chuva chovendo, é conversa ribeira
Das águas de março, é o fim da canseira
É o pé, é o chão, é a marcha estradeira
Passarinho na mão, pedra de atiradeira

É uma ave no céu, é uma ave no chão
É um regato, é uma fonte, é um pedaço de pão
É o fundo do poço, é o fim do caminho
No rosto o desgosto, é um pouco sozinho

É um estrepe, é um prego, é uma conta, é um conto
É uma ponta, é um ponto, é um pingo pingando
É um peixe, é um gesto, é uma prata brilhando
É a luz da manhã, é o tijolo chegando
É a lenha, é o dia, é o fim da picada
É a garrafa de cana, o estilhaço na estrada
É o projeto da casa, é o corpo na cama
É o carro enguiçado, é a lama, é a lama

É um passo, é uma ponte, é um sapo, é uma rã
É um resto de mato, na luz da manhã
São as águas de março fechando o verão
É a promessa de vida no teu coração

É uma cobra, é um pau, é João, é José
É um espinho na mão, é um corte no pé
É um passo, é uma ponte, é um sapo, é uma rã
É um belo horizonte, é uma febre terçã
São as águas de março fechando o verão
É a promessa de vida no teu coração

zBrown, knowingly or annoyingly you pulled a chain and the sh#t came rushing up over the top of the toilet bowl of my memory and it was colored brown and blue, pornographic as heck.

It was like someone said "Niagarakaka Falls."

I went huh? What the fvuck is he taliking about? Miles and Amy. It shouldn't mean anything to the rest but it means something.

Maybe.

Years ago in the early nineties the Mrs. and I and a roommate, Terri, got into a renaissance re-enactment mode. We began a guild and two members were Amy and Miles. They had a living-together period and made the irrevocable decision to tie the Celtic knot, the tie that binds, that no man puts asunder under pain of righteous wrath and a visit from Marcel. (Miles is a Pulp Fiction trivia buff.)
Happy Hour. The bar just opened.
The party's in full swing.Everyone's ecstatic and it's all kumbaya, kiddies to come, and kissie-kissie the mother-in-law just for luck.
You're going to need more than luck.

The results: Score one for the best man! He was too smart to marry Amy after he knocked her up after she left Miles after they had their affair after all that kumbayas and kissing one of the ugliest women on the planet.
Score on Miles: Loser.
Score on Amy: Double loser, she has her two kids by Miles and the one by Brian, their best man.
Amy's mom: Biggest loser. She's got Amy and the clan living with her.

I can't speak for Liz and how she'd feel about her friends' seemingly pointless vows.

I can speak for losers like Miles, who feel lousily-treated but realize after time that they had much to do with it, the guilt is halved in these situations, GENERALLY.

Hike You for the Road of Life

Miles before sleep.

Now I lay Amy down to sleep.

It hurts to be me.

But the SOB isn't paying child support. It's pointless to worry about people like these. They come into our lives and leave, we are changed, they are changed. It takes time to mellow into how. Who cares why?

ZBrown's a case in point, in my case.

"Anybody posting on ST is."

Stunning observation.
And totally pointless.
What a pro

Most everything in the meadows is pointless. Cathedral has a point though. Is that the point of this thread?

You've asked a very pointed question.

Some of the comments on this video I find pretty pointless.
The Chinese were the most pointless, IMO, but you don't care.

As for the tale of how the hound got in the chestnut tree, What Can I Say?
Someone doesn't tell a story very well.

But then, you could be listening to A Waste of Time, a weekly presentation on Asheville Public Radio.

"Anyone Up for a Pointless Anything?"

When your skinny Squeeze is all sorts of athletic
and played a version of your favorite sport, and too, bests you in that pursuit, once having been an Olympic alternate!
(Alternatively 'cause you couldn't wrap it or keep your "hands off)
& when all you produced was girls, What do you do that speaks to the always & ever passing of youthful vigor and knee juice?An Ice hockey rink in the back yard for 2 months a year when the 4 girls play Field Hockey!

lastly, people say monkeys aren't good pets, they deserve to be in the wild. the real reason to get rid of the monkey...

Withholding judgement...just sayin', son.

Any comparisons between Alex and BURT are pointless except for whatever "humour" some might find in so doing.

What I'm finding to be VERY pointless, however, is when I see so-called "British spelling" in American cyberspace.
