Campfire, marshmallows and conversation! The MM team gets together regularly in a sort of free-form discussion that’s not quite a chat, and not quite a discussion. It’s a cross between instant chat and performance art.
c: Totally missed not having one of these last week! …I keep a little collection of things throughout the week that I want to share here—missed a week so I’ve a pile now.
c: A few weeks ago, Dan Edwardes’ zombie blog rose from the dead (back in Sept) with—what appears to be—daily missives. https://danedwardes.com/ — lots of good stuff there going all the way back to 2013’s https://danedwardes.com/2013/06/15/way-of-the-pathfinder/ I think I’ll pin Dan’s 063. Dan Edwardes: Motivation, efficacy, and storytelling in the Forum for a few days.
M: while we’re highlighting guests… Charlotte is doing the 24-hour Le Mans race on a bicycle for charity this weekend
c: facepalm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Mans is the race…
…but I thought you said Lamaze technique - Wikipedia and I was like waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!
Oooooooooh, you mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liborius_of_Le_Mans
M: Craig stop making fun of my terrible French accent. >.< Anyway, She’s fundraising for suicide prevention. Charlotte will end up cycling for 8 hours total, working with a team of 3 other people to complete the full 24 hours.
c: ok, but do we actually have a link to the thing?
M: Movement Labs: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/movement-labs You can donate through this link!
c: …history, it rewritten has been. (It was a sight-gag in the GDoc. You missed it. But hey! You can become a Patreon supporter and JOIN US in these calls. Just sayin’)
c: hey speaking of… no that doesn’t work because this person hasn’t YET been on the 'cast.
*glaring at Vincent* But anyway: https://www.facebook.com/vincent.thibault.9 has a post about his film and updated book coming… ce livre, est-t-il en Francaise? …but it’s available over here: https://carrefours-azur.com
omg, I got it right…
R: I wish I could speak/read french…so complex
M: too many vowels in a row makes my brain short out
C: Where’s that meme of the dude strutting away arrogantly . . . imagine that here. Well, I can always deploy a Shatner:
M: Shatner will definitely do for arrogance XD
c: …showed up at my mom’s birthday party once. Boy was he surprised. That’s another story though.
c: Mais non! C’est tres simple!!
c: aha! I scribble on your line. (ooooooh, you corrected it.)
Who else is doing fundraisers this week? Instagrams?
c: I need to scroll this web page (GDoc editor) Shat’s getting annoying…
M: I know that Parkour Visions is doing a fundraiser this week for their Movement for All campaign: https://parkourvisions.org/movement-for-all
M: Also this is your seasonal reminder that while you’re doing your christmas shopping, you can support the Pacific Northwest Parkour Association on Amazon Smile. (smile.amazon.com) They’ll get a percentage from each item you purchase!
c: Instagram: YES. F****G. PLEASE https://www.instagram.com/p/CIUWgmYnIgO
M: ooooh. I need to get out west to climb. Or really anywhere other than PA…
R: PA has cool climbs through! It’s sparse but it’s still cool.
c: omg and this… https://www.instagram.com/p/CITRMgNFxzQ/
R: can’t get over the whole cooking at the top of a mountain thing hahha
M: I’m just as obsessed with the giant dumpster wok in the last photo….

c: Has everyone seen the latest shot-across-the-bow at FIG/IOC from Parkour Earth? https://parkour.earth/letter-to-the-ioc/
M: Oooh, I haven’t. Pardon me while I read about the drama…… I did hear rumors (very much unverified) that FIG is angling to get parkour into the 2024 Olympics. Again, very much unverified.
R: Oh shoot! No I haven’t read that yet….
Upcoming Movers Mindset episodes?
c: What are we doing for episodes 92 and 93? Whose up next from the existing virtual conversations to be 92? …to be followed by Mark Balfe-Taylor’s conversation as 93? … in-video call discussion and lots of scrolling through the existing https://forum.moversmindset.com/tag/virtual-conversation that are already recorded… Amy? Renae?
c: going once? SOLD! Amy gets to be ep92, Mark is ep93.
c: And then discussion of who of those people we want to do full (the virt conv’s we intiially recorded are only 45 minutes hard-stop) conversations with. Which brought up WTF can we all travel again? Also,
*record-needle tearing sound* did something happen to https://www.mountainproject.com or am I an idgit? I can’t seem to get to the super duper zoomy scrolling map of all the climbing routes [on the planet]. WHY can’t I get this as a map, or some photos https://www.mountainproject.com/area/classics/105873294/looking-glass-rock
M: Pipe dream: Still want to actually get to NC and probably San Diego or another CA city. Maybe late 2021…
R: ah, 2020…what a time
c: OH! I have meme for 2020… standby…
R: of course you do……….
M: Wow… I have to follow that up. XD

Craig will be moderating a panel on COVID-19 and businesses, featuring Dani Fitchett, Blake Evitt, Alan Tran, Justin Taylor, and Adam McClellan. https://www.instagram.com/p/CIJ5WiNHFo2/
c: done. (tis mentioned)
c: So Melissa, how does Headliner make you feel?
M: Well… Depends on the day and if it works for me -__- When it works, it’s fantastic and takes me no time at all. When it doesn’t…… >:( It really doesn’t, and I don’t know why.
c: also, https://3.basecamp.com/4025785/buckets/19490625/vaults/3175115765 (which won’t work for anyone but us has a comment under it.
R: Thanks for bringing this to my attention! Basecamp is weird sometimes
c: oh moment missed. When I pointed this out, Melissa made a face and I wasn’t fast enough on the screen grab…
c: yeah, I’m at a meme-loss for Melissa’s Headliner-rant… I mean, this is the best I have…
M: I’ll accept it. Ugh.
New formatting of landing pages?
c: any final thoughts on the new way, 085. Kyle ‘Just Sole’ and Dinita ‘Queen Di’ Clark: Street Dance, culture, and community ??
M: I love it. I think it really brings together all the various resources and content we create from each episode in a visually compelling and easy to read way. Finally, after years of fiddling with it…
c: good, cuz we’re going to make all of episode 1 thru 85 look just like that.
M: Excellent. Guess I should start writing show notes for all the early episodes, huh?
R: It’s so exciting that we’re cranking out episodes like this again!
c: I think I heard Microsoft is buying Discourse… not sure though. …that would suck. Yeha, joking. Salesforce did just buy Slack though. o_O
*cue ennui music track*
M: Oof. Please no.
c: well, any parting shots? nope? OUTTA HERE
