I seem to maybe have broken thru the pack ice built up around this plane wreck of a thread.

Sidmo, I'm not one to retract with no good reason.

But I will apologize for my brief rant.

I have to watch outbursts of temper because of heart issues (blood pressure, COPD, just being excitable in the way mice are in general). And I seem to have just broken my commitment not to be snide in my posts here, at the same time.

It is good that you've called out the OP, and I am certainly no licker of boots, butts, or behinds. I'm not doing so now.

A man who does not produce in a timely manner is suspect. The nature of the internet is still being discovered by slow learners and failed Luddites like me.

Stupid is as stupid does. Likewise, foot-draggers are only capable of being judged as such when they perform in that manner, and Lickey fits the shoe, to use a reversal of the common metaphor.

Get off yer ass, LICKEY LOUSE.

We need to see your true colors.

Are you whom/what you say or ARE YOU A FED? I would not put it past the gangsters of law to pull shiv like this.

Here's to the FMAF! Raise the mescal bottle and kiss the worm!

Fool, The Fool, or Fools may refer to: Foolishness, the quality of having poor judgment or little intelligence. A jester, a clown, a harlequin, a buffoon.

Fools come in various shades of colour, Sidmo: which one are you?
Colourful? You do not even come close.


Mouse: On the wrong track. He is not FED, FEDS were too stupid.

WOW! That's that clown from that movie! The one with the clowns in it!

Or is it a selfie, Jay? I'm having a fed-up day, myself.

It is a selfie or I want to be Me as in MeMe.

It is book of Human Behavior at it's best. As for Lickies responsibilities: children? girlfriend? wife? friends? eating? Chuck everything aside and just write a short story.

I am FED up too. Failure to communicate for one; writing helps to the right people or is that to the write people.

I can dig it mouse - no apology needed, lets just get some boots up lickys butt for his own good - sometimes I feel sorry for the guy - by now he's probably overwhelmed with the scope of it all, - as we all must admit, he had to work hard to get all that stuff compiled- then I come to my senses and remember that he is sitting on a valuable trove of interesting info that he can ride to glory and fame - but but if you're trying to serve a ten course meal you still have to get it on the table before bedtime, and if licky was a chef he would have been fired long ago - if only he'd just set a deadline and stick to it, but therein lies the bane of self-publishing - he must not need the money from the book and that's a shame for him professionally and artistically - what if we all sent him like 5 bucks or maybe ten, as an advance on our autographed first editions? Or more - how much licky?

Not that I'm calling your bluff or anything like that, dood, but c'mon licky - you should be flattered that anyone even notices you at this point

I mean, you started this stupid thread almost 9 yrs ago, and managed to get a lot of folks to respond and post lotsa posts on their own time and dime and then you just fade the phuck out - why shouldn't we all feel disappointed, letdown, shortchanged and cheated? We wait, and wait, and wait - and once in a while someone is [nice/nave/stupid] enough to tell a story or even a secret, and then licky probably begins some private chat with him and maybe gets more dope for the book about dope and the more he gets the harder it is to complete so poor licky gets into this catch-22 death spiral from which he might never emerge, at least not with a publishable manuscript

... Cliff Hanger (movie) ... was very loosely based on the plane crash in Yosemite.
Emphasis on the very.

Licky

My rant was not against you; FED up with PAIN from other sources.

I rather have someone that gets it right the first time around, no mistakes. Sacrifice is a better word for your time when you have this and other responsibilities at the same time.

Sidmo is just stalking you but you know that, he doesn't. Carry on, looking forward when both are done.

I hope that everyone who was there at the time is in good health, but we are all getting old. Licky does not have the clock ticking with the same urgency, so his procrastination isn't an issue for him and all the kids on here whose curiosity is not based on personal experience. But the rest of us may not live long enough to read the damn book if Licky don't get off his ass. That may sound melodramatic, but I bet every single one of us in their 50s and 60s has had a friend die by now. I'm not talking about guys falling off a ledge or getting conked on the head by rockfall, but real medical problems taking their toll. Now I'm ok, knock on wood, but who really knows? Could Licky simply be waiting us out so he can write what he wants? Probably not, but he should do more to convince us that he gets it. Right now, based on his reticence to publish, confrontational attitude and argumentative stance he comes off as incredibly insensitive . . . in short, he seems like a real jerk. "So are you Sidmo" you might say - and you'd be right. But there is a big difference: I'm not asking you for anything and Licky has asked all of us for something at one time whether he still wants input from us or not - so he ought to be polite on each and every communication.

The counter-argument is that Licky ought to treat us like shyt if he wants to. If that's what you believe then I really, really don't give a phlying phuck what you think, because you're an acehole too.

Wow!! what a screwed up narcissistic psycho stalking sociopath this weirdo Sidmo is.

Licky under no circumstance should you ever respond to this nutcase sidmo ever again.

There's absolutely no need whatsoever.

Just completely ignore him from now on ......

" - but he instead chastises those like myself who choose to hold back - phuck him - he's a greedy, self-centered and selfish jerk so in love with himself that the normal rules of behavior are not applicable - or at least he would like it to be so."

So this is a guy that I'm supposed to do his beck and call? Is this a guy that when we finally meet for that coffee that I ought to offer to buy? Sidmo, you need to go ask some of the climbers on SuperTopo that have published books if they have offered up tidbits of their writings on this forum just to show everyone what they've come up with. John Long is a fantastic writer...and he continues to do so. I don't see you banging on him to put up some of his chapters so you can glean from him what you'll need to publish your next book with.

To use your own words, "phuck" you. You are still insignificant in this story, have nothing to offer, and haven't swayed my opinion in how many years that you've just been barking and would have no clue how to bite if the situation came to your face.
