Okay, I’m almost out of here after over a decade–the longest I’ve lived anywhere. I managed to get my last apartment Riffvlog done and it’s The Virus And Contracts so I’ll post that to Youtube tomorrow.

Let me tell ya: I’ve got axes and saws! So my Riffvlog will go through alterations in the coming months but the themes of spirituality, ethics, and economics won’t change.

I’ll load up on the pics here of where I’ve got my van to at this point. I picked up a 300-watt inverter and tested it so I know I can use my 250-watt blender. There is a 150-watt inverter built into the dash and that grinds my coffee and I’ll likely use it to charge my 12-volt cooler…But that’s in the next few days.

Okay, the bed is in and on hinges so I can get full access to the stuff stored underneath. I put a shelf up top where I can keep a row of things in baskets. I can mark what is in them on the front face. I’m going to paint it dark grey tomorrow and do an upper shelf on the passenger side. A hinged desktop will go underneath and I can sit on the bed and work on the computer.

I’ve started insulating the ceiling and used two-sided gorilla tape to help keep the insulation up. I’ll likely finish it down the road with some thin painted birch plywood.

I laid the first rug tile in and will lay the rest after I finish painting.

Next year I’ll do the two side walls and the bed more professionally but this will get me through September and October. I’ll find a cheap room for the winter. I can only live in the van between May and October because of my nerve damage but having it set up this much allows me to do what the Rockefeller legacy wants and that’s to drive as much as possible. They just could never allow a little local business wherein I only put on about 5000-kilometers a year. WE CAN’T HAVE THAT…Look to who is winning under the COVID lockdown and you’ll see all the usual suspects. Need your food wrapped in plastic? Every damn bit of it now!


I’ll do my last Riffvlog later or tomorrow and I’m going to cover COVID and signed contracts which shouldn’t be worth the toilet paper they are written on. But, of course, the usurers won’t see it that way.


My cover of Lennon’s classic… Once again thanks to Mixmaster Rick @ Cosmic Pig Studios for the bass and drums and the production!

Okay, today was a backup mirror install and I finished the passenger side wall insulation.

Next is getting a 1500 watt solar panel installed on the roof.

Okay, so today was Maxx-air fan day…These things are out-of-stock everywhere but I managed to find one at North Shore RV (thanks!)…

I could have done this myself but with my neck injury I try to limit the overhead work I do and sawing through the metal isn’t easy for an ole geezer:-P

So, CL…and an immediate very well priced install that I’m thrilled with…Once I decide on SOLAR I’ll hook it up and that should be by the first week of September.

I’m thinking of going with a 150 Watt Poly Panel and two 6-Volt Deep Cycle Batteries and also run a wire with a switch from the main starting battery or alternator. There will be 2-circuits in the back: one for the fan and one for the dimmer lighting. The front panel has a 3-prong house plug so I’ll likely use the front passenger foot area for the electric cooler…

I’ll decide on the heat later but at this point, I’m thinking propane ceramic…

So next is insulating the back passenger sidewall…MAXX !

Okay, so today was a run to Home Depot for the different insulation I’m using: spray foam for the crevices; polystyrene for the panels; and pink fiberglass for any holes and such.

I also picked up my peel and stick carpet for the floor and I think it’s the right decision.

My tomatoes are ready so it’s time for an avocado, dill, cucumber, and tomato sandwich…
Don’t forget a cold beer! It’s hot out there:

Hi, HERE is the first post in this NEW SERIES!

Today I laid down 3/8 birch subfloor over the Relfectix. I was thinking of doing vinyl plank but have changed my mind and I’m going with 18″ by18″ peel and stick carpet squares…

It’s easy to maintain and easy to replace so low maintenance with less weight and some insulation to boot. I’ll likely try them on one wall of the van, too, after I insulate. I’ll be starting that tomorrow and will use hard but flexible polystyrene.  I’ll use fiberglass batt in those tiny hard to get places.

The one thing I’ve decided against is using glues against the metal of the van as I hear it creates a nightmare down the road when it’s hot. And I didn’t use screws into the metal floor, either. There won’t be much spare room in the van so everything will be weighted down anyway…

Here are some pics of today’s adventures…


Here is an alternate mix and thanks to Rick @ Cosmic Pig studios for the rhythm section, too!



Probably the last song to be written in my ten-year stay in this apartment. I usually don’t unpack lyrics but I prolly have to on this one. The Christian Gnostic tradition maintains that we all live in a ‘demiurgic construct’ that is entirely owned by this entity. Its role in existence isn’t what this song is about. What’s interesting to me is the way we pro-create which leads to reaping and sowing and the male sexual fluid is a waste product as are all excretions from the body. THINK ABOUT THAT from the gnostic perspective. It’s very telling about our condition here…And perhaps offers insight into how we are viewed by our Archon Overlords. They own everything here and it’s all corrupted…

Over and over I lost and you won

Did you think I’d fold and come undone

I’m tougher than you’ll ever know

Weathered by the cold winds and the winter snow

Over and over I lost and you won it’s all your karma it’s all your kum

Over and over I lost and you won it’s all your karma it’s all your kum

Over and over the lies you’ve sewn

A blackened heart in a conscious dead zone

A pyramid built on power and fear

corrupt everything that love holds dear

Over and over I lost and you won it’s all your karma it’s all your kum

Over and over I lost and you won it’s all your karma it’s all your kum

Mara and her Jezebel’s make life’s illusions hell

For all you’ll live and all you’ll be you’re their misery.

It’s a demiurgic tragedy…

It’s a demiurgic tragedy…

It’s a demiurgic tragedy…

It’s a demiurgic tragedy…


Here is a second take of this:





Anthony put up another blog and I’d like to expand on my comment which I’ll add here:

Hi, Anthony. I finally figured out how to do this. Me Luddite:-P I, too, am also advocating for the end of usury and economic predation in four areas: housing, food, education, and health-care…Or, humanity’s basic needs. I’ve recently done a series on What Should Healthy Spiritual Economics Look Like? Where I cover Distributism, Georgism, The Social Credit (the good kind/interest-free credit)…I also muse on my Four Pillars Of A New Earth Commons. Keep up the good work! Oh, yes…I just wanted to mention that I find it counter-productive to attack differing metaphysical views and we should unite where we can agree–on getting rid of economic predation as outlined in c.j.macq’s philosophy of Equalism.

I won’t spend time on Icke as I’ve covered that ground HERE…

I’d like to touch on the idea of Judean/Christian values. I’m not even sure how this is possible as the two religions are antithetical and opposed to each other. The only thing I can say in that regard is to delineate metaphysics from culture as a starting point. But let’s explore that a little. If Judaism cared at all about Christian values they would remove *usury from Christian cultures immediately (along with a few other things)…This alone makes the idea untenable and duplicitous. I’ve said in other posts that if you are 100% aware that someone doesn’t want something and you project it onto them anyway then it simply makes you an ass-hole. So, please, link the countries where Jews and Christians live together without usury and I’ll shut-up.

There is also that tiny nagging little issue of Christian families (and communities) being decimated while at the same time Jewish families have never been more cohesive. It doesn’t look at all to me that there is a shared common interest in this regard. Really, is that Judean Christian values? Yikes…

In My Four Pillars Of A New Earth Commons, I argue for a rational compromise on the issue so I must be an insane pragmatic centrist! I’ve even suggested that capitalism might work better if everyone had their basic needs covered and were not preyed upon by a corrupt economic model. Of course, there is the issue of motivation and we would need healthier incentivization combined with an education system premised on teaching self-sufficiency throughout the primary school years along with every student learning economic literacy. 

What makes my ideas different than Marx is the foundation for the New Commons should be based on something like Distributive ideas in regards to private-property rights–so, everyone would have access to a small piece of private property as a birth-right. I also don’t advocate for the violent overthrow of the oligarchy and believe they should be taught about healthy boundaries because that to me is one of their primary pathologies. So I’ve taken into account the Non-Aggression Principle and Volutarianism. So we can still have the rich and not so rich: it’s simply that the not so rich get guaranteed a minimum standard of living at the basic needs level. 

Please read Anthony’s conclusion section over and over as he is entirely correct about this.

And lastly on ecology and the environment and the near-total incompatibility of usurious economic models living in harmony with the earth’s ecosystems. I’ve spent quite a bit of time blogging on this issue and anyone is welcome to mine my site in that regard. 

I’ve been meaning to get to Propertarianism but the COVID thing isn’t allowing me the time. I’m in full agreement, though, that civilization needs more truth and less duplicitous bullshit…

NOTE: it won’t do at all to remove usury and replace it with something worse.
