I liked it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely the worst video I watched all year.

There are tons of pros to everyone owning a mac and a go-pro these days. This is an example of the cons when on a public forum.

Post it publicly, spend the money on self video photography (as if you're climbing Everest), spend the time on editing... THEN at least expect to get a D-BAG review on this forum from this guy. Sorry. And I'm not even going to comment on the music.

Yes. I had a bad day. But even in my best of days did I ever produce something as narcissistic as this... Please PM all hate.

[quote="tommyboy360"]I knew I was being an ass. I could have more tact or just had a warm cup of shut-the-hell-up. No need for me to play custodian. Like I said, no filter. Perhaps the reason "boy" is still in my screen name...[/quote]

This isn't a hate response.

Assuming you're all serious about this business, I'll address your issues.
First off, I'm fully aware that these two peaks aren't that challenging for some people. So what?
Second, I don't see it as narcissistic, if there were more people to shoot, I would've shot them. I was just documenting our trip.
Third, I'm a PC user.

Thanks everyone else for you comments...haha.

Not to offend anyone... but I would simply say that it is not up to others to determine what is an important and meaningful piece of another's life. Thus why we each have our own to live and those that feel like reaching out to share their experience with others defines human nature and the progression of society. Enlisting durogatory comments to those who have shared their experiences, so that one may feel better about their own place in life, only limits the communal bond between all of us who share a love of the mountains. =;

Of course the video is bragging, but why not? He obviously isn't bragging with intent to belittle others, but to share an accomplishment with the rest of a community who has either done the same or possibly strives to.
