Discuss this Rant at the Environment Table inside the Diner

Numerous Diner Lurkers have emailed me expressing disappointment with the disappearance of the Frostbite Falls Daily Rant audio I did for a long time, covering numerous Collapse topics.  Mostly these rants can be found on the Diner Soundcloud Channel.  I stopped doing them for many reasons, the main one though being that with my ever expanding health problems, working up the energy to do one of these things, scripting it and producing it just got to be too much for me.  It's a whole lot EZier just to pound out a text blog on the keyboard, although generally not quite so much fun.

BUT, I am BACK!  icon_sunny Not that I am much healthier these days, but I gotta screw myself down to the task at hand of informing readers about collapse issues before I am pushing up daisies, and Audio is quite appealing to many people.  Unlike text blogs, you can listen to them while you do other things, like plant your permaculture collapse garden or drive through traffic to your bullshit job or otherwise Prep Up for the Collapse of Industrial Civilization.  Audio is great for Multi-tasking. 🙂

In the new iteration, the Frostbite Falls Daily Rant has morphed into the new "Fireside🔥 Chats", which worked well for FDR so I figured I would rip off the idea, especially considering I have recently let my Pyromaniacal side out of the closet. 🔥  The new Fireside chats will be found on Utoob rather than Soundcloud, since on Utoob I can illustrate them with the Fire🔥 of the Day.

If you want transcripts of any of these exercises in ranting, you can send me an email or a PM inside the Diner and I will provide one.  However, the written version loses a lot of contextual vocal inflections, so I'm not going to generally publish the scripts.  Listen or miss it.  You also may notice I have a nice lisp going these days, this comes from my two missing front teeth and the inability to pronounce fricatives very well at the moment.  I hope to get the teeth in some way repaired by some Dentista before I Buy My Ticket to the Great Beyond, but in the meantime you will just have to live with this little defect. lol.

In any event, this particular exercise covers the environmental issues the Californicators are suffering with these days, as the state basically burns 🔥 to the ground.   Even Lady Gaga had to evacuate her Mansion in Malibu!  If that's not Collapse, what is?   Give me a holler inside the Diner if you want me to continue with these things.  It's always motivational when I get some feedback on them.  If you hate them, don't make a comment.  As my mother used to say, if you don't have anything nice to say, Shut the Fuck Up.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
