      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

White collared conservative flashing down the street,

 

Pointing their plastic finger at me.

They're hoping soon my kind will drop and die,

But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high.

Wave on, wave on

Fall mountains, just don't fall on me

Go ahead on Mr. Business man, you can't dress like me.

Sing on Brother, play on drummer.

 

Yeah, I'm sure Jimi would have really been behind those "products" himself...

Weak.

It is lame, but Hendrix (the god that he is) does not own the word Experienced.

 

But this isn't the first time:

 

The name and image of Hendrix, who died in 1970 following a drug overdose in London, have been licensed to many companies for products including baby clothing, an air freshener, a lava lamp and a Christmas ornament.

 

Bummer all around.

I guess I got over it after the initial umbrage when, what, a decade or so ago, they started marketing all those
