It's In The Shoes

Just like any other sport, shoes are an essential tool for the climber. They fit tightly around your foot and compress your toes so that you can put all your weight on small edges. The advances in shoe rubber give climbers the extra friction they need to push off small surfaces. And the shits look freaking cool.

It took a few good sessions, but my feet eventually got used to the snug fit of the climbing shoes. My shoe of choice is the Five Ten Anasazi which really isn't much of an endorsement since I've only tried one other pair of shoes. I picked them because they looked cool. I'd love to throw some wacky ass designs on climbing shoes because I love the way they look.

So yeah, climbing shoes. Lots of fun. Not terribly useful for anything but climbing.

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
