The title of this release was inspired by Joe Rogan's stand-up special "Talking Monkeys in Space" in which he describes the conditions of Mount Everest. As it turns out, hikers that die are put to use as trail markers. The simple reason that the bodies of dead climbers are scattered about Mount Everest is that it's too dangerous and difficult to try to remove them. They remain littered across Everest's treacherous path, a grim warning to others who would aspire to reach its peak.
