Of course, both pursuants of both endeavors are mostly made up of arrogant jacknapes and a bunch of youngsters that grow less respect for previous particpants with each passing generation, but I think at the end of the day, surfing builds a stronger bond with its environment, has much less impact on same environment, and every wave is an onsight.


Climbers are to the planet as dog-shit is to shoes.

Is that a picture of a Troglodyte? If it is, was it implied that all climbers are troglodytes, or just ones named dorkos?

Brute in Advertising: full disclosure beta warning.

About ten years ago, in the binge of my second to last drinking spiral, I was conjuring a literary mountaineering journal called...Troglodyte. I was so into it I pledged a challenge grant on Philly's NPR affiliate during a fund-drive, requesting specifically that they not use my name when they announced the challenge, only the name of the journal. They used my name and, half into a bottle of Jamesons, I went berserk. Called the station, screamed at the fund-drive manager, blacked out. When I resurfaced, I was on my way to my girlfriend's stopping for a pack of smokes. Got into a fight in a 7-11. Someone grabbed my keys and called the cops. Got my single DWI, blowing a .22, followed by a .23, and by that time I hadn't had a drink in five hours.

Ah, the good old days.

Who knew one word could bring back such a flood of memories. Yorick, I think I like you better this way.
