Ah Ionesco, now we're talking. I saw the Bald Soprano in Canberra earlier this year and thought it was a little dated, but still wonderfully absurd. If you are a lover of the absurd, dear Wendy, you must love this site.

This site is full of mostly male lurkers trying to fill in the time with surfin the net. For that
demographic chockstone is in losing competition with all those bloody porn sites

Don't know any Bald Sopranos but I did see Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder in the cinematic adaption of Rhinoceros. Absurd hardly does it justice aboslutely ball breakingly bonkus is closer to the mark though it was amusing. I guess the intent is to amuse and not just confound which is some what an improvement on Waiting for Godot. But it was just a film and I ain't a Rhino....yet.

Homer Simpson is my mentor for alternative logic.

I wasn't sure if Artaud liked beer.

Actually, now i think about it, the Bald Soprano is really quite like Chockstone. There's a lot of nonsensical conversation where people talk at each other rather than really communicating and get then quite riled up about it ... filled in with a few strange fairy tales and an odd poem ...

I dont tend to post much becuase no one really goes climbing!

Where are the trip reports? Where is the "psyched on something"? Where are the new "projects"?

No wonder Aussie (Victorian?) climbing is behind the rest of the world! All we do is talk about climbing...

And me? I work 60 hours a week, and still manage a day on rock a week!

Not bragging or anything cruze, but everyone always complains they are too busy! I'm not claiming to be awesome, but less talk more climbing!

I think you all ask too much of C/S.

Ask not what C/S can do for you..................


On the prediction front I feel the lure of the rock dimishing on a grand scale, by 2035 people will forget how to get to araps/gramps.

And in 2064 a young man armed with machined nuts and seatbelt material slings will slash through the bees and brambbles and proudly claim an FA of what was once known as Syrinx.
The Grampians will become a disused venue and will be extensively quarried for sandstone to add a touch of class to the ever expanding McMansions. Dadswells Bridge will be a Melbourne suburb.

Sounds realistic eh..............................

So JimboV10 is to blame. He works 6 days a week ripping off work that part time workers/serious climbers could be doing and otherwise is to busy. So Jimbo, where are the new projects?

I enjoyed your realisation that you are thick enough to think Victorian=Aussie. Ha ha. People like you call mexican gay netball football, AFL, I had enough of I hard time not choking when it was called VFL just for the football reference.

And Jimbo, I'm taking the piss. Lots of us go climbing and lots of the more real/in the world people (not me!), in my experience, get out and about more than others and do stuff and aren't bored, bludging or bullshiting in front of the computer (like me).

As a side note pound for pound aussie climbing isn't so weak.

I'm talking about peoples own projects.. Things that are just consuming their lives.. For me, its Fuel the Fire at Werribee Gorge. All comes down to one freakin move that I just cant do!!!

Thanks Hero. Thats the nicest thing that anyone has said to me in a long while (apart from my daughter who isn't old enough to realise what an arsehole I am...so that doesn't really count)
