On a strictly Tourista Level, the Highlight of my Great Tombstone Adventure down to Seattle was the excursion K-Dog and I took to the Boeing Museum of Flight, which is a HUGE facility just loaded wih cool historical aircraft of various kinds.  Airplanes are not small things, particularly the modern jets and bombers, so this place takes up acres of space.  Given my limited ability to walk even a few feet without sitting down to rest, touring this museum without the assistance of an EV powered Cripple Cart was out of the question.

Unlike Walmart or Safeway which kindly provide Cripple Carts for the crippled and overweight shoppers,  Boeing does NOT provide these marvelous devices for the touristas who come and pay $23 a pop for the opportunity to view up close and personal these behemoths of the air, possibly the greatest monument to the Age of Oil that exists.  There is no single symbol more impressive than the Jets and the Rockets produced over the last half of the Industrial Age […] Continue Reading…

 I have a very distinct memory of being 8 years old and going with my father in his truck for the first time.  It had probably been somewhere between 6 months and a year since I had last seen him.  I saw him once or twice a year when I was a little child, and that was for many reasons, but the divorce of my mother and father at 4 years of age had a lot to do with it.  Like most of our stories it's complicated and nuanced. 
   
        In my memory I'm 8 years old, and I've got on a matching green sweatpants and sweatshirt ensamble, and my father is calling me “grasshopper” as I'm climbing up into his Semi truck, and he's laughing and smiling.  The feeling associated with this is one of fulfillment, contentment, and complete joy.  I've got a lot of memories from these visits.  I would go with him for a week or so at a time, and I would ride all over the country […] Continue Reading…

Day 1:

 

The Adventure Begins…

I am off in about 6 hours from now on the Great Tombstone Adventure down to Seattle-Tacoma, to meet with my Pro Stone Cutters and also to spend some time over Thanksgiving with K-Dog.

The last couple of days have been pretty hectic (for me), getting my final packing done and also getting the Digs cleaned up some so in case there is an unannounced Home Invasion next week while I am away the management will not be unhappy with the state of things.  I didn't mess it up too bad from the last time I brought in the Pro Cleaners, about 6 months ago I think.  I got the bathroom tub and toilet all scrubbed out with Ajax and all the dishes are done and the sinks clean and empty and all kitchen counters scrubbed down.  It's not a perfectly organized typical dwelling of course since it is mainly stacked with boxes of Preps and not Furniture, but IMHO it doesn't look too […] Continue Reading…

My Adventure down to the Lower 48 is just about over (I jet set back to the Last Great Frontier on Monday Morning), and overall it has been a very successful trip, although not without glitches.  The weather was not exactly cooperative for one thing.  On my previous trips to Seattle I have lucked out and had really nice weather.  Not so this time; in more typical Seattle fashion it rained about every day at least part of the day.  Usually the part of the day I had something planned to do outside.

I'll have a more complete travelog next week after I return to the Last Great Frontier and have more time (and energy!) to write.  I have been absolutely POOPED every evening returning to the hotel the last 3 days.  My stamina ain't what it used to be.  For today, just a pictorial essay of scenes from this Adventure.

When I began first reading, then commenting and then blogging and ranting on the subjects of Collapse in 2007, the main topics of conversation across the collapse blogosphere were on Energy & Resource depletion (specifically Peak Oil) and Economics (specifically the Financial Crisis which began with the collapse of the investment banks Bear Stearns & Lehman Brothers).  The second of those two topics was what got me interested in questions of collapse, its causes and what the potential outcomes might be.

At the time, there wasn't a whole lot of debate about either Climate Change or Extinction on the sites concerned with Collapse, it was Energy and Economics ideas being batted around.   As I recall on the Peak Oil Forum there was one commenter who brought the topics up fairly regularly, but he was in an extreme minority.  Since my main interest is in the economic end of the collapse, I was quite happy in this environment of discussion, although granted I still got in plenty of heated arguments!  Not to mention getting banned from […] Continue Reading…

Desperate times call for desperate measures (Jeb Bush photo by Michael Vadon)

With just seven days left before this blog moves away from The World's Worst Blogging Platform™ I created and over to an actual blogging platform, I will nonetheless point out that I've been rather content for the past three years or so with this "platform" of mine, and not once have I been jealous or envious of the actual platforms used by the blogs I myself read.

Because while shortly after starting up this hand-coded blog of mine, in late-2014 I did actually take a look at the back-ends of several platforms out there to see what I might add to mine, but the more I delved into them the more I realized I had no interest in them in the slightest. That all changed however in October of 2016 when author John Michael Greer announced on The Archdruid Report his desire to move away from his current blogging platform and that he was open to suggestions.

Are you ready for a new round of mass exterminations?

The great “pulse” of mass exterminations that occurred during the 20th century (graph created by Rummel). According to this chart, 262 million people were exterminated during the last century, mainly by governments in a series of actions that Rummel defines as “democides”. The question is, could something similar occur in the future? It turns out that mass exterminations are like earthquakes, their occurrence cannot be predicted exactly; but we can estimate the probability of an event of a certain size to occur. And the more time passes, the more likely a new pulse of mass exterminations becomes.

 

In this sobering exclusive analysis for INSURGE, Professor Ugo Bardi dissects historical statistics on war to unpick the patterns of violence of the past and uncover what this says about the present — and our coming future. He warns that statistical data suggests we are on the brink of heading into another round of major wars resulting, potentially, in mass deaths on a scale that could rival what we have seen in the early 20th […] Continue Reading…

I’ve been thinking about resilience lately, and what that word means to people. According to my Concise Oxford Dictionary, the word resilient is defined as:

 

 

 

 

1. (of an object) Able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching or compressing 2. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

 

As our supply of cheap, concentrated fossil fuels stutters and dwindles, and the industrial age that has ridden on its back for so long enters its twilight years, it is a certainly that most of us will find ourselves experiencing great change. Despite all the bluster and inflated claims of a new ‘green’ era in which people will be able to continue their high consumption lifestyles and enjoy all the benefits accorded by globalised supply chains, the facts — as I’ve been researching and writing about for the past eight years — simply don’t stand up to any meaningful analysis of this possibility.

As the US stock market reaches new all-time highs day after day after day, people ask, “When is your decline going to start? You promised!”

They are gracious, they leave out the, “you fucking idiot!” part.

When indeed is the ‘Big One’? Prognosticators announce impending catastrophe and it never happens. Prophets of doom are pilloried … the deflationary collapse never takes place. Instead there are the Pollyannas: “The good times are here, forever. You lost! Get over it!”

The overabundance of good times is certainly why every year thousands of ordinary suburbanites are overdosing on heroin: they obviously can’t stand all the winning! It turns out too much of a good (any)thing is toxic; more success and half the people in the country will be shooting Narcan into the other half. Meanwhile, ‘Brand X’ prognosticators are accused of crying wolf too often. Good grief! The wolf-criers are necessary because they create the ‘Wall of Worry’ that all bull markets must climb in order to reach new highs. Here is irony at work: we are murdering […] Continue Reading…

Are you a From Filmers to Farmers reader? Everybody's been doin' it!

So as stated at the beginning of my previous post, yes, I've decided to shut down this hand-coded From Filmers to Farmers blog of mine. I'm guessing you've never heard of the term "hand-coded blog" before (as opposed to just "blog") and might not even know what it means. If that's the case then you're about to find out what exactly it is that it means, because it's via hand-coding that I inadvertently ended up starting this haphazard blog in the first place.

For starters, and having a thoroughly incomplete 190,000+ word manuscript called From Filmers to Farmers: From Couch Potatoes to Potato Cultivators collecting dust on the shelf for about four years now, it was back in 2014 (as I came off of my 5-year hiatus from the Internet) that I decided to purchase the fromfilmerstofarmers.com domain for unknown future considerations, and/or to just ward of an enterprising individual from somehow overhearing the title of my manuscript, snatching […] Continue Reading…

I wake to rain. Hard rain falling on the steel roof of our cabin, a torrent surrounding us, not pitter-pattering but rushing through the tree canopy and over our heads with a roar. Dawn is not yet broken, and in the dull gray I hear the rain and am satisfied. I fall back into sleep.

In the late morning I walk with my daughter to the front of our land. Rain still, and we in our slickers carry the day’s compost load and a small cloth bag which I use to collect eggs. My daughter trails several feet behind me, slowed as the umbrella she insisted on carrying blocks her view.

Through the gate into the chicken paddock, a maybe six thousand square foot piece of land at the forest’s edge. Behind the chicken house a blue open topped barrel catches rainwater, and as I approach it, I hope it has at least filled to the halfway point. The days and weeks have been dry of late, rains sparse, just enough to keep the well-mulched […] Continue Reading…

I first became obsessed with preserving my intellectual material a few years ago when we had a major crash of the Diner, which took over a week to finally resolve.  At the time, most of what I had written was only on the Diner server and in the WP and SMF Databases, I didn't take copies of the stuff as I wrote it.  I generally write first draft, stream of consciousness with no edits.  MILLIONS OF WORDS documenting the Collapse of Industrial Civilization just GONE, All GONE!  Fortunately, my Code Jockey friend Harry was able to retrieve pretty much all the material, and the Diner went back into normal operational mode.  However, in the intervening week, I went through a period of complete heartbreak, although I tried to deny it to console myself.  "It's all just Dust in the Wind" I kept repeating as a Mantra as I shuffled my crippled self around my digs, making my little circle from the bed to the bathroom to the computer to the porch, rinse and repeat […] Continue Reading…

Selling himself as a brave truth teller, Damore followed up his dismissal from Google with an opinion piece that appeared in the Wall Street Journal in which he stated that

I have complaints from quite a few Diners about "abandoning" the "How I Survived Collapse" novel, which I didn't really do.  It's just that there has been so much else going on in the Global World of Doom along with my own personal life that squeezing in time to write more chapters has been difficult and put on the back burner.  However, this week we have a BREAK from the non-stop Hurricane Train and Strafing Run of Mother Nature (at least until Super Typhoon Lan makes landfall in Tokyo on Monday morning), and Spain hasn't yet broken out into complete Civil War.  So this is a pretty good slow week in collapse to get up a new chapter of HISC.  In this one, Kenny & Karen go for a picnic. 🙂

This post is just a continuation of Part 6 of this series. If you haven't read Part 6 it would make a lot of sense to do so now.

In Part 6, I addressed some of the comments a reader (BK) had made on Parts 4 and 5, explaining my thoughts on a slow and uneven collapse. And how while modern politics is trapped in a growth at all costs paradigm and cannot acknowledge the limits of growth, there are still varieties of politics that will do a better or worse job of navigating collapse in the age of scarcity.

(BK and I have quite a conversation going in the comments. Now that the initial misunderstandings have been cleared up, I think some real communication has happened.)

If you are new here, following the discussion below would be facilitated by going back and having a look at the last few posts in my Collapse Step by Step series.

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part…  And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! ”

 ― Mario Savio, 1964  

 

They say that history runs in cycles. If so, it's fascism's turn at the top of the wheel after an 80-year absence. And in the same way that fascism in the 1930s elicited a counter-reaction, it elicits one today in the form of antifa.

In reports of the recent Catelan bid for independence, one hears echoes of an 80 year old conflict. Catalonia was once a key anarchist/republican hub during the Spanish Civil War, and a locus of anti-Franco sentiment. (For an analysis of the current state of things in Catalonia, see Pepe Escobar here.)

Images of the Catelan election, of bully cops assaulting women, then firefighters protecting voters, remind how Franco pressed fascism on Spain 80 years ago. With nationalism and nativism at high tide, we watch citronella Nazis march with tiki torches in Charlottesville, and remember Father Coughlin and the […] Continue Reading…

So I am working as my friend Brian's "Property Manager" for the apartments he rents up here, which basically amounts to showing the place to prospective tenants.  Only two of them fortunately in a McHovel he converted to a an upstais/downstairs set of apartments.  Rented out the top one a few months ago, the bottom one has been vacant a few months.  I have shown it to half a dozen prospective tenants, so far no takers.  Brian hasn't kept up on the maintenance and it needs a fair amount of work.

Anyhow, I had an appointment to show it today at 1PM, and I head out to my cars around 12:45.  The place is only around 2 miles away.  I decide I will give the Mazda a little workout to freshen up the battery since I hardly ever drive it.  As usual, she fires up just fine, an amazingly dependable vehicle the entire decade I have owned her.  I am not halfway out of the parking spot when I hear POW! and the car […] Continue Reading…

When I wrote the last couple of episodes in this series of posts, I was well aware that I was expressing opinions that are quite controversial, in some circles at any rate. So I expected to get some push back from people whose political leanings are different from mine.

As it turns out, only one reader (who I'll refer to as BK for the sake of brevity) responded with such a comment, and he was reasonably polite and clear in what he had to say. Now, as it happens, I do believe there is such a thing as objective reality, and if you can show me that an opinion I hold runs counter to that reality, I'll willingly change it. I actually have done this at various point in the past, but in this instance that wasn't what happened.
