The way you describe this is as if your watching a TV soap opera and picking your favorite characters instead of actually being a rock climber playing the game. I give you that 'the industry' is 'marketing' climbing with some of these bigger production movies and TV series that try (sometimes painfully so) to hype EXTREME climbing up for the lard-ass general public. Well that pays the bills. Dean's got a spiritual side, and maybe it comes off wanky because of of production values. So hes not the Dalai Lama. So what?

We are all self-promoters. Youve put out a few videos, Ive seen em. So have I. ;)
The difference between mine and your "shameless" self-promotion is that we suck and have no audience, but Dean makes shitloads and is known world-wide. Your complaint marks you as a consumer! Your making a weird circular argument... All Im saying is dont judge the video quality of the dude. The world is more than this mediated bullshit TV/MOVIE/INTERNET
