Supertaco Favorites thread?
« on: January 14, 2010, 03:08:53 pm »
You know what we need?  A supertaco favorites thread.  We just post up our favorite threads in one thread here, and whenever we need a fix we go over and bump the thread there or here and have it all in one place. Since we can edit posts here we can kind of keep it tidy a little.

e.g. I dig IHP's Aurora posting. Really kewl article.

and Porcelain Wall...

(what's the scoop on the articles John? are those owned by Climbing? or did you retain ownership?)

So many good ones! But on those I'd say "fave magazine article." Or "retread?"

I like the ST-generated stuff by the usual suspects, same subject matter as you cite, munge. Midds put up a bunch of "old walls" threads that are great...even if unorganized (as he thinks). Nanook has a bunch of good TRs. I'd rather read a weak wall or climbing TR than hear about some floozie's issues with ex-BFs and similar whoa-is-me? tripe. Loath threads about jazz greats as much as the politicals. Jezus, I love to bitch.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

I haven't been to the taco stand in forever! I go every once in a while to check on the D5 hammer...
I do this for fun...
