I Met Jeff Goldblum at Café Carlyle and All My Dreams Came True

"Before I watched Jurassic Park, I was a kid who was obsessed with dinosaurs. After I watched Jurassic Park, I was a woman who was obsessed with Jeff Goldblum.

On my way back from my final bathroom trip, I literally ran into Jeff Goldblum in the hallway. His legs are longer than my entire body, maybe. “Oh hi, Mr. Goldblum, I am really looking forward to the show tonight,” I did not say. Instead, I made a sound like a dog makes when you step on its tail and he kept walking, clearly on a mission.”

It’s useless to wait - for a breakthrough, for the revolution, the nuclear apocalypse or a social movement. To go on waiting is madness. The catastrophe is not coming, it is here. We are already situated within the collapse of civilization. It is within this reality that we must choose sides.
Phase one of inoculation complete. In 6 to 12 months, log willing, we should have maitake mushrooms for food and medicine!

The proposed solution to our environmental problems is no longer a matter of saving a few watts, using less plastic or stopping an oil pipeline; they are tantamount to a call for freezing the infrastructure. It is our entire industrialized lifestyle that is obsolete, and without a cultural revolution that shatters the logic of the industrial system, we are lost. The alternative is theology, not ecology — the birth of a new Golden Age which cultivates what Russian novelist Chyngzy Aitmatov calls the “divine spark.” The issue is not man’s tools, but man’s spirit.

If our data is the oil of the 21st century, then why aren’t we all sheiks? We’ve all been sharing, but the smart ones have been collecting…Privacy. Transparency. Surveillance. Security gap. I don’t want to hear about it. These are sloppy downplayings of a radical new condition: We don’t own ourselves any more. We are digital serfs.

(We are told to surf the web, but in the end, the web serf’d us.)

Great things I’ve recently discovered: “Stuff Happens with Bill Nye” and moonshine jelly. Did you know that your toothpaste may be endangering orangutans in Borneo? (Brother Nye’s about to tell me how and why.)

I broke our only shot glass while reaching for a cup to fill with water and photograph as a passive aggressive response to the dozen photos of lattes that were clogging my usually interesting Instagram feed today. Karma at its finest, folks.

The first month of home ownership has been pretty glamorous! Set up a second rain barrel, planted some garlic, winter onions, kale, lettuce, and Jerusalem artichokes, baked the first batch of cookies on our new oven-from-the-future, and will get the first mortgage payment in the mail in the morning. This old house is feeling homier and homier! The back door has miraculously not fallen off, the gap at the bottom of the front door is plugged with a towel to (hopefully…maybe) deter cockroaches from entering until we get proper weather stripping. Lucy (the cat-teen) kindly took out a poor mouse for us and left only it’s head on a tiny stake as evidence of the kill. The resident stray cat is the most annoying fucker I’ve ever met, but we’re still becoming fast friends. I laced his kibble rations with de-wormer this morning and he was malnourished enough to eat it without hesitation. Poor fella. Other wildlife sightings have included a hummingbird, squirrel, possum, snails, and the termites munching on our shed.
