DPM #4. Ode to the Haters.

DPM #4 has been posted online, and is currently on its way to a gym or shop near you, if its not already there.
In this issue, I started with the news, like usual, but just couldn't do it. I've seen so much online hate toward some good cats, like Kinder, Kehl, and Sierzant, that I had to speak up. I have my fair share of haters, and believe me, I love it. Without them, I'd have stopped rappin about climbing a LONG time ago. Go check it HERE.
Read the Sonnie Trotter interview on my page while you're listening... then go visit his blog. Its for sure one of the best around. And don't miss the great photo gallery from Keith Ladzinski!

Across the pond...

My recent blogs have revolved more around the things I see and learn, and less around me. So, lets get back to self indulgent spray for just a moment...

I was recently interviewed by a writer from the UK named Sarah Stirling. She contacted me about doing a piece for, a great site that I had visited often to pin down the news and goings on across the pond.
I jumped at the chance for the interview, even though I know that there are more than a few people who would jump at the chance to make me look ridiculous (well, more ridiculous than I make myself look). Fact is, I figured that if I'm gonna talk the talk, I may as well walk the walk. If she wanted to take shots at me, I'd be all for it.

We met up online, and she was extremely prepared... bringing up things I'd nearly forgotten about! This girl had done her homework, and that made for an incredibly fun interview, as we breached all sorts of subjects, and worked our way through what makes me tick.

I just saw the finished product, and I'm extremely happy with all of it. Sarah's interview and commentary was great, and Mick Ryan did an incredible job with the layout of it.

You can check out the interview HERE.

Be sure to check out the sidebar about Tom Patey! I'm pretty psyched on learning more about that guy!
