the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

Saturday meander

Sitting here in the coolnes of my family room office I am noticing the heat is constant outside.. Its like a desert climate. Hotter and drier than I have seen in recent times. Earthquakes had been felt in our state and are occurring elsewhere and now Irene on the eastern seaboard. Is this mother nature and the paybacks beginning. I tend to think so.

The garden has taken alot of abuse this year.. The heat is killing it slowly. Production is way down and almost non-existent except for a few of the hardier varieties.. Gonna have to be hitting up the markets in order to subsist for the winter.

Anyhow life is getting back to normal slowly. Amen. I took a walk over to Wallie this morning for bread, tortillas and toilet paper. And now I am relaxing in the coolness until the sun goes down again.

Have a joyous Saturday.

summer winding down

the economy is in the tank. Politicians are scurrying for more band-aids. The cost of everything is sky-rocketing. What are we to do? Sit back and watch the shit unfold. And keep prepping. For only in calmness and peacefulness will you survive.
Stock up on food and meat
GAther barter items and ammo
Clean the weapons
Plan your escape or hanker down plans.
But keep a calm head on your shoulders. Let them be the ones to make mistakes that you can profit from.

garden pics

friday rant

I really wish i could express everything that has gone on in the last month but its all bullshit. First the neighborhood gestapo and then the guvt gestapo are attacking old Trash at the stead. to all of them i say a rousin FU.. my alma mater.
Anyhow the zuchs are producing nicely as is the lettuces. The cukes and beans died off thanx to the gestapo. And its too late to replant them. I have to start thinking about fall planting for some excess.
I hope to post some pics up here this weekend and yes y'all maybe even a video. We shall see. Ya see the the outside office/studio is a mess from the guvt run-amok bs. BUt alas my front porch studio has not been taken down. SO we shall see.

Sorry about thelax of posts

However we have had some unexpected stuff go on around the homestead. We are coming thru it and the posting should start up again with regularity. I wish it were all good news but not all. Anyhow the garden took a tole with the heat and the other things yet I am able to salvage and still harvest some produce. PIcs will come later. As for videos I do not know when I will be able to get some up. As I said times have been rough around here .
