These were always the best.  They don't tend to stay up on YouTube long, I think Perlman checks for them and has them pulled. 

One of my early goals as a climber, was to do as many routes that DanO soloed in those films.  As I did, I began to notice things.  In his solo of Purple Haze, Dan leaves the crack and is hanging out on this knob on the face.  So I went back and did PH again, and climbed out to that knob... and it sucked!  WTF was he doing out there with no rope??

He did the same thing on Airy interlude. I climbed the crack/corner start, when I got home I rewatched it, and DanO was climbing the far outer part of the corner as a blank arete, the holds there were nothing but dimples.

Dano routinely made impossible looking moves.   I was luckee enough to be a friend and we did many things including some climbing.   I always swore that he could rob people of their ability when on the same rope-by osmosis~~~ all the climbing talent ending up in his arms and legs.  We always got a laugh outta that.

Yes they were they totally fired my inspiration to get out and climb
survival is our life, we live from day to day
never know who you're gonna meet in a money making state

everybody lives here now, the dustbin of the world
an unwanted pool of labor with our promises of pearls

  I got free copys from Dano of that series.   I wish Pearlman wasnt so stingy about them..   In Addition to that - the last time i talked with Emma Osman she hadnt seen any $$ from the ongoing sales-- that was back in the ST days.   :-\

Long ago my partner and I were hangin at the base of a crag, when M looks over there and sees Perlman moving his pack and rope (he didn’t want them in his shot) 

M goes running over there and yells, “hey you fucking orange-haired clown, you don’t EVER touch my gear!”

They don't make 'em like that anymore, bunch of movies about relationships nowadays.
