Dialogue in a parallel universe:
You’ve been living with him right? And he’s been poor this whole time?


And you’re interested in how he lives—at least from a philosophical standpoint if not in practice?


Yet you came here to buy something expensive in the name of vanity.
I don’t care a whole lot about how I’m seen by most people, but this doesn’t apply to Karla. She was always wary of Ran and the disentangling process. But I stood by it as it more and more became my identity. So this much time goes by and the people closest to me are still behaving in ways completely at adds with the example I set. It’s as if they’re saying, “Yeah, how quaint. Not for me though.”


Karla sees that my friends are buying suits and cars and homes and assumes I’m still shouting into the wind, deaf ears all around. I look ineffectual—what I’m doing seems trivial. And she further writes me off.

Well said Sameer.
It’s the contrast thing.
Although I accept it was not meant in a malicious way, “dropping” a sum of money that would keep me in tires for decades on an outfit that’s especially important to look good in this one time, feels a bit like being mocked. I don’t mind being an inside joke between you and your trainer (may he rest in peace), but I don’t want to be one between you and Karla.
Or maybe I need vitamin D
I understand your desire to make a “grand exit” but be careful you don’t make the process of leaving behind industrial civilization look like showing off. The transition need not be so abrupt.
Your truest friend,


Thanks for being honest.

Best not to be a gimmick.

Rejecting the religion of progress doesn’t mean artistic, creative or cultural progress had been subverted. In fact, these types of progress should accelerate after a long period of stifled freedom of thought. The interest will come at the intersections of things like energy scarcity and electronic music—a rapidly accelerating creative genre that depends entirely on an uninterrupted flow of electric current.

I’ve looked at the documents you sent over and I must admit that I underestimated the complex and humiliating hoops that must be jumped through in order to work with children. Fingerprinting was not required during the eight years I taught kids how to sail. Unfortunately that’s a paper trail I’m not prepared to leave behind.
If you can waive the fingerprinting and reimburse me for the CPR certification then consider me all in. Otherwise you’ll need to hire someone else.
My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience so late in the process.

All you can remember about the interaction with security:

The SUV was white and perfectly clean. Its approach wasn’t even noticed although it had looped all the way around the outside of edge of the property to arrive at that spot. The unifrm was equally starch. The man was pudgy—pot belly tucked in tight. Indian. Of standard height. I waved as he pulled up. Shirtless and filthy, glossy with sweat. Finishing up three house of moving bricks around in the brilliant June sunshine.

“What is going on here—quite a project. Are you building yourself a house?”

Doesn’t return my handshake

Tell him I know the company that owns the property—the absentee landlord.

“Where did you get the blocks (bricks)?”

“From over there,” gesturing vaguely toward a distant corner of the property.

He takes a picture with his phone.

He climbs around on it—testing the durability of the construction—kicking parts with his booted foot. “Forget about all this, forget about this.” He seems frantic and a bit distort—emotionally affected by having to destroy what clearly took time and skill to build.

He waited until I’d begun to leave before he started destroying it.
Tells me they’re watching by satellite. That he knows the place we’re entering from. That there are no trespassing signs posted and that I’d be arrested if caught again inside.
Tells me his company “manages” the property for the landowner.

Probably dispatched from Sacramento

Rolls up after I’d already crossed the fence. Presumably having finished his demoltion work—but he misses the fence passage, preserving the lie that I “just walked in.”

Notes for Brownlands Dance Shoot:


Similar style block end stages can be used in strategic cuts/fades/connections

Pick a doable number of stages and focus on those. Three perhaps?

The shadows make some of the blocks look like they’re floating. Play up this effect.

Must be shot from identical tripod height and distance. (measured using string)

Even this modest use of energy (this trickle)
If you want high quality versions of any piece, I’d appreciate the help perpetuating the fragile images I’ve collected into the future. Format is no good. And I’ll continue to move away from anything that requires plug in energy, and anything that entangles one in unwanted responsibility.

Delivery service—barter and donation based payment/reward format/. also welcome. Other kinds of deliveries available as well.

The look and shape of the energy you put out is particularly readable. It can almost be seen with the eyes. Being aware of this makes social interaction difficut. Then another in this small town. Another reader. Another onlooker.

Yes, I shuffle data. I have no use in the future I imagine. Other skills must be cultivated. This process has already started. Half a lit keyboard.

The stages are good but they’re probably not going anywhere. That’s what’s nice about working with ruins—they naturally move toward more beauty. It’s only when the process is interrupted.

The artistic process as well. Very disorienting to be pulled out of it.

Resentment is understandable.

It’s the wisdom of the time that pushes priorities in parenting. And if the wisdom is: program your child to be just like you—a good consumer, then we can see how we quickly get into a situation where we have a hollow culture with little direction except to digest the latest technology and consume resources at high rates. Advertising, especially television, seeks to maintain the illusion that we’re all meant to be spending our time either working to acquire the funds to consume, or actually consuming. This is the highest a person is meant to strive for.

Hi Sonya.

Thanks for hanging out. I was nearly ready to write that place off before we met and i’m glad to have a friend in my hometown again.


First, I may have mentioned this but our next TOPEKA Second Friday danceparty is July 8 here in San Jose (flier attached). If you can shift some lessons around and come down, we’d love to have you and your shifty hips grace our dancefloor (which you should know is just our livingroom). I know how much you like getting away form Davis. Molly will likely be available if you’re so inclined (and willing to bring your own sleeping gear). Then spend the rest of the weekend with your sister in Santa Cruz! Right on.


Second, although I’m not sorry we can’t be facebook friends, you do seem to rely heavily upon it for your interpersonal communication. Hopefully you know you can call or email me anytime.


Third, I’m looking for an excuse to ride my bike to Northern California but mostly think I’d enjoy spending time around a good smelling plant. If there’s anyone you can put me in touch with I suspect I trim like a madman (in the most productive sense).

Sorry we didn’t connect. My timing with some people has been alarmingly off lately. Sorry again for reacting with exasperation to your pregnancy announcement. I’ve just been forced to think about this alot lately. Not only are you and Justin with fetus so to speak, so are Angie Andrews (who I never got my second romance with) and Ryan Nelson. Hopefully you understand how I might be troubled by this flight from my own childless state. It doesn’t make me want one, just feel a little alienated from people i've known a long time. But I’m happy you’re happy.


Anyway. Any thoughts on Nikon’s D5100? Seems like it’s unquestionably the most awesome camera at this moment.


Oh those invisible lines:
Hi Sarah! Maybe you’re on another continent, but in case you’re not, we should meet up in the city for coffee. I’m approaching desperate for cash and need to sell that drawing you’re holding onto to a Davis woman that’s taken an interest in my work. It is of course yours to claim if you’d like to keep it. (You could ask that highrollin man of yours if he’ll buy you a present.) Talk to you soon.

I’m honored to know someone engaged in the proliferation of such advanced and much needed ideas. Thank you so much for this.
Because the beginning of the Deindustrial Age has such broad implications, I have lots I can talk about. Below are six topics I came up with in the last ten minutes. Any one of them could be expand into a short talk. I’d pull vignettes from my archive and splice them in—one or two at a time to say what cannot be said with words. Maybe a 50/50 split between words and video.
If you’re thinking you’d rather keep the conference topics more firmly rooted in Mendocino issues, I also wouldn’t mind just screening some stuff in the sidelines—as ambiance. Between or after talks perhaps.

1. Rise From the Underworld: inverting the bell-shaped-curve of the industrial age
2. The Deindustrial Revolution and the Age of Salvage
3. Megastructures as Monumental Mythic Ruins
4. The Value of Ruined Space
5. City Planning after the Automobile: retrofits and reversions
6. From Black Mesa to Tucson: water conveyance in California and the Desert Southwest

I’ll talk to you soon.

just trying to reduce your stuff is simple-minded, and instead you should make sure you have "smart stuff" -- that the stuff you have fits into your life. My favorite bits: "What keeps nomads smart is that having to constantly pack up and move keeps them sensitive to the meaning and purpose of all the stuff in their lives."

Also, how much of our excess mental "stuff" is in service of physical stuff? Wipe your feet off, put that drink on a coaster, don't eat in that chair. These are middle class rules: poor people have nothing to lose and rich people can afford to not care. Here's one rule that can take the place of many rules: if cosmetic damage to an item will bother you, don't own it.

Anita you nearly tarnished the sanctity of my conscious dance experience. All I could think about was how good your legs looked in that dress. Are those beads that dangle off the hem?--fucking sexy. I would have played dirty dancing with you last night but I’m still learning the etiquette—the taboos of the dancefloor. However I do know the way you move is fantastic and I’m super attracted to you.

Regrettably this is all just for your amusement because I’m moving in two weeks and have a friend in town after tomorrow night. I wish I’d found my way into that auditorium six months ago. Blasted calendars! Anyway, thanks for engaging with me. May your days be filled with romance and intrigue.

Vacuum tubes use plenty of power and convert most of it into heat, and the sturdy structure made necessary by that inefficiency makes tubes shrug off sudden transient pulses of the sort an EMP generates. Modern integrated circuits are many orders of magnitude more efficient, and so those same transient pulses go right into the heart of an IC chip and destroy it.
[The move toward efficiency created the vulnerability both at the refinery’s micro and macro levels.]
Still, downscaled expectations will be among the most common themes of the decades ahead of us, and those who have the uncommon sense to figure this out in advance and start getting ready for a less efficient future will very likely benefit from the increased resilience that will provide.
Todd has completely staked his claim on efficiency. Everything is planned out—no time is to be wasted. Except he’s left no room for chance occurrences and disruptions. So the plan lacks resiliency.

Hi John,

I understand you’re looking for hospitality staff at Glendeven and wanted to pass along my resume (attached). I might be the perfect person for this position. I worked seven months at the Roadrunner Hostel in Tucson then moved to Jan Jose and established a free hostel with the help of a friend. I’m an astonishingly thorough housekeeper and get along well with a wide variety of personality types. I take sincere pleasure in keeping a home. I have a master’s degree and good wine knowledge. Anyway, we should meet. I’m living in the village and available often. Call or email if you’d like to set up an interview.

Also, here are the phone numbers of a couple people who can attest to my cleaning/people skills:
Tanya (my manager at the Roadrunner Hostel)

Sameer (we established the Topeka House together)

ps—I dropped in earlier today during a bike ride. The property looks amazing—I’m excited to see more of it. Also, I do this if you’re interested:


Thank you again for meeting with me yesterday John. Glendeven is an exceptionally beautiful place and I’d be honored to join you and the others in perpetuating its legacy.


Whether or not you decide I’m the right person to help behind the desk (and the bar), I’d like to again offer my video production capacities. Because they are each so unique, I could see the benefit in doing a tour for each room—leaving a few surprises for the guest’s arrival of course. While you can get a pretty good idea of my style from the vignettes in the archive (, I thought I’d compile some shots taken in the area in the last few weeks. I’ll send you a link when i have a rough edit. We could also do a updated version of the vid you currently have on the website-- perhaps with some voiceover.


Also, I wanted to present an idea I’ve had for some time now. I could see myself as a guide for any guests wanting to explore the coast by bicycle. With my relatively large carrying capacity, I could pack along essential tools for minor repairs and flats, extra clothing, cameras, etc.—anything the guest couldn’t or preferred not to carry, leaving them delightfully unencumbered. Included would be a full picnic lunch—maybe wine and cheese, bread and fruit. I’d have picnic spots scouted in advance. While some might be intimidated by automobiles and the rugged terrain, many will embrace the local routs, finding them some of them most picturesque anywhere. I don’t do the spandex thing and would perform this role with grace, style, and competence.


While I think I’d be great in the consulting and planning stage of any personalized outing, I’d want to also be responsible for the execution. The not driving thing makes this difficult of course but I’d be willing to put in what I can. While it’s true I’m not a local yet, I’ve explored much of the coastline and have a number of favorite spots already.


Thanks again for your time,

Questions for Foley—

Hi Michael—

I’m editing the audio and video I took at your farm the other day and needed to ask a couple questions about what is and isn’t ok to include in a finished piece intended for public consumption. First, you indicated you were uncomfortable with anything pertaining to the dairy share model. It seems like useful information but I’ll understand if you’d still prefer to leave it out. Second, I’d really like to include your anecdote about the Mendocino County Agricultural Commissioner explaining why we’re unlikely to pass a law banning raw milk. It’s an ideal lead in to discussing who such laws are meant to serve. Lastly, at the conference you estimated it would cost a million dollars to bring the farm in line with the codes for a licensed dairy. During our interview at the farm you said a quarter of a million. I’m probably rather use the clip from the farm but both sound good. Which is more accurate?

Thanks so much for your time. The footage looks great and I’ll be sending you a link to view the finished piece before it’s made public. Keep up the good work!


Brett, thanks for asking all this.  First, on the model, I'm fine with anything that explains the model.  We just don't want anything on film that outright says we're doing it now.  We are probably overly cautious on this, but it's the advice we get from our lawyer and other folks embroiled in conflict with CDFA.
Second, I think it's OK to include the Ag Commissioner's comment.  I was a little sorry I said "he actually admitted that," because I think he's probably as skeptical of that sort of influence as we are.
Finally, I think the quarter million dollar figure is the more accurate.  In the first case, I was going off of what I understood a local, licensed dairy had spent -- but they're much bigger.  So then I started thinking about the costs of doing it from scratch on a small place like ours.  A quarter million is still a ballpark figure, but it's the one I'm using regularly now.
I'm only sorry Sara didn't get on this one!

My education is being intentionally played down—it’s mostly indoctrination she says, a waste of time. This is the rationalization used to undervalue me. Why am I here?—I could be with my love. The value of my relationship with Grace is played down—you’d jump to someone else in a hot minute he says. My physicality is downplayed. I ride 15 miles into town. He hires someone to move a hottub with the money he owes me. I don’t have to be here. Three nearly dead animals on the way in—removed from the road. Two dragonflies locked in mating ring and a beautiful snake—quite shocked and not completely dead. Deer grazing in the meadow nearby as I read under an apple tree that drops its fruit every few minutes. Even Sarah is doing it, “now that I’m a bicycle commuter (having done the ride only once and mostly out of necessity)…” She wants the halo but can’t live without the Benz.

Why am I here again? Remind me.
