Some of you probably remember this classic shot. The rest of you will probably enjoy it.

WTF! Boom boxes were standard apparel - but those socks...?!?!

[Edit: Werner, am I to suppose this explains your hearing problems as well...? ]

Begin the climb
With a friendly voice
A companion, unobtrusive
Plays that song thats so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning belay

Off on your way
Hit the open crack
There is magic at your fingers
For the spirit ever lingers
Undemanding contact
In your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy
Emotional feedback
On a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price

Almost free...

All this machinery
Making modern climbign
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
Its really just a question
Of your honesty

One likes to believe
In the freedom of climbing
But glittering prizes
And endless compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity

For the words of the profits
Are written on the studio wall,
Concert hall

Echoes with the sounds...
Of salesmen.

Apologies to Rush and bastardizing one of my all time faves.

My baseball cap. I stuck it in the crack to do the hairdo bit.

SchazBot!

46 goin' for the Twinkies is CLASSIC!

YAY!

eKat

P.S. GOOD GOD! Blanchard, that would be theRealBlinny, just pointed out the car going off the cliff. . . HOW DID I MISS THAT? Must be my undivided admiration of 46 and his flippin' Twinkies! (should that be "undivided admiration *OF*. . . or "FOR". . .? for you grammarians. I'm too lazy right now to look it up!)

TIG?

Anybody?

An all-time classic! Surprising to not have seen it here before.

Anyone who holds that attitude about climbing has, IMO, got it right. Climbing's a joke, people!
