Dust To Dust,
what had been a confident bluesman playing "DUST OFF MY BROOM" went...
since it redaction,
the retraction of the tune
I've found it has been re-added elsewhere,
in what tune are you listening to or what is blues.
I'm ok with that.
though it makes me want to rant
so I will

Find the filmmaker's channel and the full-length documentary here:
 The audio from this video is
the most viewed video on my channel because Rolling Stone posted it on
MSN News. I wish they posted something else from my channel, but I'm grateful regardless. Anyway, this is the footage to that audio. I was
waiting to acquire a better quality version of the film because most versions available are terrible. Thankfully, a very kind user named
Markie on the blog Expecting Rain sent me this one. This is probably
the highest quality you'll be able to find. Furthermore, the usual
muddy audio of this footage has been replaced with a higher quality rip from the Dylan Bootleg “VD Waltz,” pressed on beautiful blue wax vinyl
by Trade Mark Of Quality in the early 1970s. Enjoy this gem while you

If you'd like to hear a relatively-complete recording of the track,
just skip ahead to 0:40. But I highly recommend listening to the studio banter; it gives great insight into the vibe of Dylan's recording
sessions. These recordings were ripped from my copy of "The Cutting Edge: Collector's Edition," which was only limited to 5,000 copies.
More outtakes to come, and if you have any specific songs you'd like to
hear from it, let me know! If you'd like to hear more rare outtakes
I've already uploaded, refer to my playlist titled, "Studio Outtakes."

Enjoy this gem while you can!

Reina del Cid, came to my attention from a sorta weak wristed to young
bluegrass ensemble, I'll have to go look for that group...

from the recent "Mighty Quinn" & "The Monkey & The Engineer"

Her version of J Prine's

"Illegal Smile"

to an older post of "Sugaree"
'Where the notes are as follows:

""Toni might be a bit of a Dead-head -- she introduced me to this song a while back, and now I love playing it.
It was between this one or Tennessee Jed, which actually I think we'll do at some point, too. Keep those requests coming, btw!""
Thanks to our "Cidizens" on Patreon who made this video possible! If you're enjoying our Sunday Morning videos, consider becoming a Cidizen on our Patreon page in exchange for extra goodies and our eternal gratitude:

So it conceivable that one can make requests . . .
As a matter of principle, I'm a bit sour on Cid right now.
Her summer tour dates are poorly chosen venues but more to my annoyment, Last week she was here in NYC to go to the Oprea:
Wagner's The Ring Cycle -
It is wrong that she did not play a gig while here.
That She didn't plan it? speaks to needs for a manager.
Every missed opportunity for an artist of her sort is a set back.

Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them again
I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke down car
And four years, no calls
Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I can't stop
No, I can't stop
So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older
You look as good as the day I met you
I forget just why I left you, I was insane
Stay and play that Blink-182 song
That we…

Chris, had you never hosted this forum, and had so many contributors not invested so much time and heart to preserve some of the best storytelling on climbing history that exists anywhere...I wouldn't know who I am or from whence I came.

I never would have fallen in love with climbing (nor have become obsessed with climbing gear).

I probably never would have climbed in Yosemite, Joshua Tree, the Gunks, Quincy Quarries, Seneca Rocks, Camden Cliffs or the Cascades. I wouldn't be dreaming about trips to Alaska, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and about a dozen other places.

Folks that knew and loved Dolt would never have known that his story continues, nor would they have had the chance to however small of a way.

I never would have met my second cousins through Dolt in Germany last summer.

I never would have met my birth mom's siblings.

I never would have met tens of friends of Dolt, or my birth mom, Ann, nor learned about who they were and how very much I resemble them both.

I never would have met hundreds of other climbers through this forum and elsewhere be it through climbing or volunteering.

I never would have volunteered with City Kids Wilderness Project nor the AAC in memory of my birth parents.

I wouldn't have genuine Mark Hudon Nose Route topos hanging in my bedroom and office.

I wouldn't have been blessed by the gifts of time and friendship generously bestowed by so many climbers on this forum...the list is long. The circle of folks who have selflessly shared with me precious Dolt gear is nothing short of amazing.

Were it not for all of this, I probably would have just accepted the diagnosis of fibro back in 2011, and wouldn't be currently fighting like Hell to beat late stage Lyme & babesia (the correct diagnosis) so that I can get back to my climbing community and just spend as many days as is possible of those I have left climbing my heart out.

As an attorney, I understand the burdens of monitoring, compliance and, unfortunately, litigation. (Though I am not a litigator - just a geeky technology lawyer.)

This forum is made of, and has done, SO MUCH GOOD. Please don't ever forget that.

Respectfully and gratefully,


oH wow ! that sure jerks a tear,
 you have to admit It is impossible to find a more poignant, powerful story. And a dozen less impactful but still amazingly stories.

Thinking better of what to have end-up here,
I removed the link to the 'Vixen"; Halsey.
She, a ~the latest flavor~, has an appeal of a "Joan Jett/Pattie Smyth" sort...
Some words of her's from another song, are in the other post....
"Nightmare" was a perfect fit, emotionally & had flames.

Bob Dylan is reputed to have said

Mona** tried to tell me
To stay away from the train line
She said that all the railroad men
Just drink up your blood like wine
An’ I said, “Oh, I didn’t know that
But then again, there’s only one I’ve met
An’ he just smoked my eyelids
An’ punched my cigarette”
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

So mfm sent what follows to him (zimmy that is)

The three of us (me, mfm, and Bob) had been discussing cigarettes, so zimmy sent it to me.


Yeah, glory days and all that.

She worked as the secretary/front book-keeper at the Squire Restaurant, I was workin' my second job, a step up from rewinding tapes

Mona was thick all over and had a very pretty, if over-painted, face.
I was too young to She was young too. Years later a roommate told me he knew her when the way I knew her too

Do You know?
How Can you possibly gnow?

did I say something about that whole sad chapter?
A place where one could learn to lead,
The base was buried ~50 feet of steep coal slag

Like the base of some forsaken desert tower
Steep slides and small rubble
In the event of a grounder, the Slag's depth
and composition allowed for a number of walk-aways

a place to cut your teeth for routes Like The Shield

We took on the cracks with pins & nuts, ground-up on-sight,
At first hip belays & gold line, then harder climbs
all 1st ascents.

After a decade had passed "Boltin' Bob" came back from out west
and bolted up our childhood,

Wada dafquawa happened at Mocanaqua ??
Schickashiny !
I was pissed !

I was never a bolt chopper
Pointless Pointlessness
but If I ever came close
Schickashiny that was when-

Mo`Can`Aqua ~ a pile of choss in eastern Pennsylvania?
Literally half buried in coal-slag
what would it have proved
Meant more to the bolter what done it
No good would have come from chopping Anyway

When that place had no bolts it was a special place.

There will be no official eulogy for The Flames thread.

Just let it burn out quietly while the campers are snorig and farting.

They say you can never go back and I don't wanna.

Thanks for everything and for wishing me a Happy Birthday.

I'm happy doin' the refugee thing and Wide Fetish both.

So what do I remember best about The Flames thread?

Gosh, there are many.

Randomly then,

I loved the New Jersey firemen who tuned in (did they turn on and drop out?), loved the thread and requested technical advice.

I suppose that they did not think to call Herr Braun (who claims to have been friends with McKinney, but I never saw them both in the same room simultaneously).

There's a long-distance train rolling through the rain, tears on the letter I write.
There's a woman I long to touch and I miss her so much but she's drifting like a
Satellite. There's a neon light ablaze in this green smoky haze, laughter down on Elizabeth Street
There's a babe in the arms of a woman in a rage
And a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage
And she winds back the clock and she turns back the page

The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure, to live it you have to explode.
In that last hour of need, we entirely agreed, sacrifice was the code of the road.

Horseplay and disease is killing me by degrees while the law looks the other way.

There's a white diamond gloom on the dark side of this room and a pathway that leads up to the stars.
If you don't believe there's a price for this sweet paradise, remind me to show you the scars.
There's a new day at dawn and I've finally arrived.
If I'm there in the morning, baby, you'll know I've survived.
