Where there’s smoke…

On Sunday night I woke up to the sound of trees rustling loudly and my curtains flying open. Then I smelled smoke. I sat straight up and panicked that the house was on fire.

It wasn’t. But there was smoke filling my house.

I closed the windows and looked at Facebook. There were fires north of me. I went back to sleep. I was lucky that I could.

Since early Monday morning I’ve been hearing how friends (and friends of friends) lost their homes to the fires. There has been a lot of property damage but so far (knock on wood) no loss of life. We did, however, lose the Hacienda.

The Hacienda del pinto was a magical, massive home in Kenwood, California that our Community used for events from time to time. According to a friend who used to be its caretaker, it just sold two weeks ago to a couple who wanted to fix it up.

Now it’s gone.

Before:

After (another part of the property, I believe):

so heartbroken. We had good times there. One fond memory from the Hacienda…  SJ riding by me on a horse with a big grin on her face.  She was 10 or 11.

I hope everyone who is reading this is safe and not in fear of evacuation (or worse). 

–Rusty Blazenhoff
P.S. My friend Amani asked friends on Facebook to show their “bug-out bags.” I had never heard of that term before. It got me thinking about making one… stat.

Real book you can actually read: yay!


So many friends are writing books these days:  My friend Heather Vescent has co-authored the Cyber Attack Survival Manual. How cool is that?

I asked her how she got to co-author it. This is what she told me:

“My co-author, Nick Selby, is a cyber-crime investigator and I’m the technology futurist. I started out writing about the darknet and the Future of Money, but it snowballed into writing about the Internet of Things, gamergate, online harassment, the dread pirate roberts and sex and love.

While researching the sex and love chapter, I spent time on craigslist and in reddit channels I wouldn’t normally hang out in. Turns out, I have boring porn habits, but I have a lot of friends who like to talk about their sexy, kinky, online experiences. All the stories in chapter 10, from revenge porn to being hacked by your angry x (page 141), are true.

While writing the future of money chapter, I re-connected with some of my more nefarious friends to understand just how easy it is to launder money using bitcoin (page 121).

The Cyber Attack Survival Manual includes easy-to-read chapters on kids, viruses and malware, phishing and other scams, and how to react when your data is breached. Each chapter features friendly illustrations and easy-to-use charts, and each has sections on protecting yourself – for the everyday user, the power user, and members of the ‘Tin-Foil-Hat-Brigade’ – the ultra cautious user.”

Fun Fact: Like me, Heather legally changed her name to her internet name. She is now officially “Heather Vescent.” I looked at her license and everything.

Cyber Attack Survival Manual: From Identity Theft to The Digital Apocalypse and Everything in Between is available now in paperback.

Ms. Vescent (I just wanted to use her last name) will be speaking about “Surviving the Cyber Apocalypse” and signing books at the next dorkbot in Oakland on Wednesday, October 18.

Real books you can actually read: yay!

A caveat, this is going to be greatThe Deeds of Pounce is the most-recent book by my friend Benjamin Wachs, who you may remember as February 2016’s Artist-in-Residence.

I asked him why he wrote the book and he explained that it started as an exercise for a writing workshop he attended.

He continues, “The first half of the first chapter was basically just written for funzies, and I never intended it to go anywhere.

Then people started asking me ‘what are the goblins doing next?’

And I thought, ‘really?  You want more goblins? And talking animals?’ And I figured it would go away.

But they kept bugging me about it. And, hey, it was kind of left on a cliffhanger, so, I finished the cliff hanger, and thought that would be the end of it.

But people pestered me, and wanted more.

So eventually I asked myself if there was a novel here, and started writing it out to see where it went.

That’s why I started it. The reason I finished it was because the goblins turned out to be so much goddamn fun. They were just delightful to write, even as their world began to hold more resonance and more depth of feeling. I just couldn’t let these little guys go – and once their story was finished, I felt an aesthetic obligation (the most powerful kind) to bring them into the world.  They’re too much fun to not go the distance.

The book is filled with insider references to San Francisco politics and what might be termed deep thoughts on the nature of culture and sacrifice, but honest-to-God that’s all stuff I threw in just to see how they’d react, and what they’d do next. This book is a romp across San Francisco with two goblins.  And it turns out I really wanted to do that.”

Fun fact: Benjamin writes for Burning Man under the name Caveat Magister.

The Deeds of Pounce is available now as a paperback (and for Kindle).

Real thing you can actually buy: yay!

Put your best face forward: Meow Wolf artist Nicholas Toll has brought his “longtime dream product” to market. It’s called the Experience Tube and it’s described as “revolutionary analog device which connects one experience to another.” I LOVE it (and just bought one). $24.99 online or in person at Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe, NM.

Issue #150 :: The “Another year older” Edition :: 09:20:2017

Another year older…

I can only hope I’m another year wiser. 🙂

My birthday is this Saturday. I have nothing planned which actually feels good. I’ve been going and going since the middle of August. This will be a quiet weekend… a quiet weekend full of birthday cake and sleeping in.

This past weekend I was in Arizona celebrating my Mom’s 70th. I can’t believe she’s 70. SHE can’t believe she’s 70. She said to me, “I feel the same inside. I only know I’m getting old because I’m watching the children in my life growing up.”

I know the feeling, Mom. (SJ will be a teenager in a little over a month.)

Yes, time is a cruel mistress but I wouldn’t give up the wisdom I’ve gained for youth. Unless it was a temporary thing, then I totally would. Heh.

Much love to you all! Birthday wishes can be sent here.

Issue #149 :: The “Things I learned at Burning Man” Edition :: 09:13:2017

Things I learned at Burning Man (and beyond)…

Lesson #1: Meeting new friends as an adult can be difficult. Burning Man makes it easier.

I only knew a few of my 20+ campmates going into the event but challenging physical conditions — like heat (oh lordy, the heat) — and that special blend of playa magic brought a bunch of us together in friendship. I have new pals, cool!

Lesson #2: It’s not about me, but it can still hurt like hell.

I’ve read the Four Agreements… several times. I totally grok it. But, that didn’t stop me from feeling sad and hurt when a campmate directed their anger toward me. Not to worry, I am fine. I am simply reminded that I am human and not above crying in front of near-strangers.

Lesson #3: You can fly over Black Rock City for free!

A pilot named Purple Haze flew me over Black Rock City in a tiny 1959 four-seater Cessna and I lived to tell the tale (which I will soon). Scenic flights are gifts from Burner pilots to us. The wait is worth it.

Lesson #4: Reno hotels are 100% booked starting on the Thursday before the burn.

Want to leave the desert early and shower off a week’s worth of playa dust in a swank hotel room in Reno? Better book ahead of time. I didn’t. It worked out fine for me because my traveling companion has family in the Reno area. I feel lucky.

Lesson #5: Live in the moment and get out in front of people in real life.

It’s harder to remember this as we all spend so much time on electronic devices. You’re not as enlightened as you think you are using a computer to buffer your human interactions, or at least, I’m not.

Lesson #6: A day trip to the South Yuba River will soothe your soul, especially after roughing it in dusty, over 100 degree weather for over a week.

I cannot emphasis how flipping magical this place is! Thanks to Piph for sharing her special swimming hole with me.

Lesson #7: Re-entry is hard, even when you don’t think it will be. Burning Man isn’t a vacation. it will kick you in the ass, both on playa and off.

I had a budding relationship going into the event and now, a week later, I am single again. It’s probably for the best, but still.

(Chris, if you’re reading this, I hope you find peace. I will miss what we had a lot.)

Lesson #8: Ok, I’ll stop here. I can only process so many lessons at once.

Have a great week, everyone!

–Rusty Blazenhoff
