Extinction has moved from the dark corners of the Collapse Blogosphere into the consciousness of the mainstream.  Just a few short years ago the discussion of human extinction was relegated to a few fringe websites, but not so anymore.  Now it has become Topic #1 in the discussions on many websites that concern themselves with topics of collapse.  Sometimes this comes to the exclusion of many other collapse related topics in economics, geopolitics, energy and social psychology that are impacting more directly right now.

Generally my focus over the years has been on the economics and energy end of the spin down we are immersed in, and I don't dwell too much […] Continue Reading…

It's doubtful I could find any other Premium Meal easier to cook up while on a Bugout or living out of your van after losing your home to foreclosure after having your job as an IT developer outsourced to India than this one.  It's premium because it does come in above the general SNAP Card budget of $5/day, but if you watch your pennies all week and stay under budget, you can afford it as a special "Fish Friday" meal. 🙂  This meal came in around $7, but I keep it simple with no veggie, just the fish.  I could have added a Baked Potato for another $.50, but I wasn't that hungry so I dispensed with that.

Our Crustacean for the day to consume is not the expected Alaska King Crab since I film these shows here on the Last Great Frontier, but rather a tasty treat from the Right Coast, a Maine Lobster tail!  I would have preferred a full live Maine Lobster […] Continue Reading…

C5 Gets His Final Apocalyptic Wood- P-II and 2/3

Posted on April 16, 2019 by Dark Green Mountain Survival Research Centre

 

With your Host, Category5.

Fear Not. I’m not dying…yet… other than the existential, we are all dying, thing. My wood still works just fine.

This is just the final episode of the C5 Gets Wood series. How many cryptic penis jokes can I continue to come up with anyhow?

For those still impressed with the size and longevity of my Zucchini, I put the photo above. As of April 15, I think it is finally tapping out. It’s going soft. Soon to deflate into a drippy mess. But that would be the one to get seed from. Longest survivor.

That’ll do Zuke. That’ll do.

The butternut squashes are all fine though. MrsC5 has been bringing them as house gifts when we go visit one of our produce deficient friends..

Speaking of my tool… or tools, size isn’t always better. I’ve hung on to those couple of big antique Simonds saws forever.  They are way better quality than anything you will find […] Continue Reading…

The "responding" to collapse that I've been talking about in this series of posts, is largely a matter of adapting to the new conditions that come with collapse. We can't stop collapse from happening, so the question is, "how to cope?" I've spent a lot of time talking about how adapting is likely to be easier in small and fairly remote towns, how to pick a town in a good location and then encouraging people to make their move to such a location while there is still time.

But making that move is only the first step. The point of moving to a small town, rather than a more isolated location, is the relationships you'll be forming with the people in your new community.

In my last post I started talking about the idea that being human is a "team sport". That is, it's in the nature of human beings, and very much to our benefit, to live and work together in groups. Such groups can […] Continue Reading…

The days rolled by last week and the strange case of the Assange affair kept me going back to my place on the net and putting up new content.  It wasn't just that I'm a comment dog who can't be on the internet without wanting to write something somewhere.  (Try it sometime if you don't write comments, see if you can make just one.)  And it wasn't simple outrage though I've plenty of that.  It was more personal.

Before Snowden and before Wikileaks I had become K-Dog.  It was early on when I became K-Dog.  The name was given to me by an anonymous commenter who had liked something I had written.  I was busy in those days.  I had come to the realization (actually horrible awareness) that smart people were not working the worlds problems.  No think tanks in universities coming up with plans to adapt the world to a future without oil or a climate.  No secret government bases with giant machines to scrub C02 out of the […] Continue Reading…

Also known as a Vegan's Wet Dream, fried rice is an Asian staple, and also a staple at the hot food counter in the Food Superstores of the FSoA.  However, most Amerikans don't cook fried rice (or "flied lice" as the Middle Kingdom dwellers pronounce it) at home, despite the fact it's a very EZ dish to prepare and really will spruce up any meal as a side dish.

You can put just about anything into your Flied Lice (including Roadkill), and it certainly doesn't have to be all Vegan, although this recipe is.  Pork, Chicken and Shrimp ae all popular additions to throw into your Fried Rice. I always worry I don't do enough Vegan recipes because I am a Meatosaurus and most of my favorite dishes contain animal protein & fat of one sort or the other.  So this was a good oportunity to do an all-Vegan dish I really like, which is also cheap and versatile and microwaves well when you make […] Continue Reading…

You come here for Survival Skills. Wrong word. Skills for Adaptation. For essential Apocalyptic Adapter skill sets.

My advice and homework assignment today is …. Go dancing.

Coming out of this winter, I have been feeling like a car wreck. Winter started at least a month early and is ending at least a month late.

I’ve just finished the years firewood. Its bucked, split and stacked under cover to begin drying. Since you know when I started the C5 Gets Wood series, you’ve got a pretty good idea of how much of life this takes up… and that you will have to perform that every single year of your post apocalyptic life. Speaking of which, I better get up on the roof the next decent day and clean the creosote out of the stove pipe… again.

Going from a winter full stop, to a spring-ish, lift, carry, stack, buck more, repeat… you get the idea, pretty much I have used every muscle group. […] Continue Reading…

The Empire of Lies: How we are collapsing in the same way as the Roman Empire did.

(Image source: Wikipedia) The Devil is sometimes said to be "The Father of Lies." It is an apt definition for a creature that doesn't even exist except as a figment of human imagination. Satan is an evil egregore that we ourselves created, a creature that seems to loom larger and larger behind the current chronicles. The recent arrest of Julian Assange is just the latest deed of an Empire that seems bent on truly creating its own reality, something that, in itself, wouldn't necessarily be evil but that becomes so when it implies destroying all other realities, including the only true one.

Initially, I thought to comment the recent news about Assange by reproducing a post "The Empire of Lies" that I published here about one year ago, where I described how the transition from the Roman Empire to the Middle Ages had taken place, in large part, because people just couldn't trust their Imperial rulers anymore. The Roman Empire had become an empire of lies and it was left to Christianity to rebuild […] Continue Reading…

This week saw a sort of an intermediate denoument in one long running Collapse battle, the case of Julian Assange, the Wikileaks founder and Whistleblower who has spent the last 7 years imprisoned in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.  By no means is this the end of the story though, now we just move on to a new act, first to be played out in the Brit judicial system as they decide on whether & when he will be extradited to the FSoA.  Or maybe to Sweden, since the Swedes may ressurect the rape allegations and beckon him to the Swedish courts for a Cameo Appearance.  Break out the popcorn.

Victor Laszlo : Role Model for Assange, Manning and Snowden

 

This writer’s favorite film of all time, right ahead of Seven Days In May and JFK is of course Casablanca. The film had it all, from WW2 suspense to old fashioned romance… with a good dose of twists and turns. In the film Paul Henreid plays Victor Laszlo, the Czech resistance leader, who has already escaped and eluded the Gestapo a few times. Laszlo has  been tortured on more than one occasion, yet told them nothing important. He comes to Casablanca in search of a way to leave North Africa and go to the USA to continue his important work. In a powerful scene near the end of the film Laszlo and Humphrey Bogart’s lead character Richard Blaine (AKA Rick of Rick’s Cafe Americain)  discuss Laszlo’s work:

Rick:  Did you ever wonder if all of this is worth it?

Victor: You might as well question why we breathe. If we stop breathing we will die. We stop fighting our enemies and […] Continue Reading…

This may be my Favorite Recipe for serving up a great meal cheap on a SNAP Card Budget.  Full of Flavor and you can cook up the whole meal on a one-burner Bugout Electric Hot Plate.  It also keeps well in the fridge or a cooler, and microwaves well too without much loss of flavor or texture.  Good for a week in the cooler, and much longer if you freeze it.

There is no "fixed" set of ingredients for Dirty Rice, for the meat you use whatever you have available.  If it's Ground Beef or Ground Sausage, great and that will suit the typical Western palate these days, but you can use any meat at all for this, including but not limited to frogs, turtles snakes and alligators, or various gizzards like liver, heart,pancreas and I was recently informed by FarmGal even lungs can be made pretty tasty.  Haven't tried that myself yet though.  Also Roadkill is an option (the 2nd to last resort though).

I could have been much more well known if I had stayed on Youtube… or not. What’s going on in my brain and what comes out of my mouth are two completely different things.  C5 dont talk good.

You wont be able to count on me for an inspiring motivational rallying speech to the troops. Or to be a public teacher  of my thoughts and skills. The simple act of opening my mouth is generally enough to repel people.

So, it has come as a surprise to everyone that this form of communication has sort of worked for me. I get a bit more time to think about what I am trying to say. It slows down my thought processes enough that I can communicate in Human.

I’m far less likely to have the first words coming out of my mouth be ‘Poop Train’.

At the end of my first "Preparing for/Responding to Collapse" post , I said that we'd be considering the following subjects in this series:

where you want to be—where bad things are less likely to happen

who you want to be with—people you know, trust and can work with

what you are doing—something that can support you, and allow you to develop the skills and accumulate the resources you will need

 

I think I've given the first one adequate treatment in the last 5 posts (2 to 6 in this series) so now I'm moving on to the second item—who you want to be with.

So, who do you want to be with? The main thing, I think, is that you want to be with people, rather than being alone—to borrow a phrase from Douglas Rushkoff, being human is a team sport. (Here's a podcast with Rushkoff and Naomi Klein that I found interesting. Of course Rushkoff isn't talking about exactly the same thing as me, but it's still […] Continue Reading…

C5’s Incredibly Boring Food Storage

Posted on March 11, 2019 by Dark Green Mountain Survival Research Centre

With you Host, Category5.

 

Come on inside today for a tour. Shake off your boots and warm up by the fire.

It’s been a LONG and psychologically challenging winter. Still, I can feel the sun creeping back with my improving mood. Even with the cold, we are getting a few hours of heating from the greenhouse being pumped into the house.  Our wood supply should run out in the next couple of days. No worries. We keep an extra years supply of 5 year seasoned hardwood for just this reason. Next winters wood is piled up out front to begin drying. I think I will top it up a bit more. I hear, people are crying out on crackbook to find seasoned wood because they ran out. Winter started early, here.

In the same way, our food storage is shrinking this time of year… but it is worth a look, just to de-mystify the idea to others. To make it […] Continue Reading…

Sometimes the ongoing Political Kabuki Theater & Clown Show we are immersed in transitions from just being mildly amusing to downright HILARIOUS.  Such was the case a few days ago when fresh off my chat with Jason Heppenstall of 22 Billion Energy Slaves, I was cooking Breakfast and simultaneously listeing LIVE to "debate" ongoing in Parliament following Theresa the Terrible's (TtT) latest defeat on her latest call for a Vote on her Brexit non-Plan.  Theresa has been living in Cricket-Land too long and obviously does not know the rule that 3 Strikes and YOU'RE OUT!  No more innings for Theresa!

TtT is not the only Clown operating on the political scene in Brit-ville though, they have enough Clowns to fill the entire Bench, and fortunately for those of us cooking breakfast at 4AM Alaska Time, this makes for a VERY entertaining backdrop for making an Omelet!  All brought to me through the magic of microprocessors, fiber optic cable and absolute GOBS of energy being consumed by […] Continue Reading…
