The Catalyst Cabin



So my pre-winter-solstice project and present to the home, is its stead. Link here for the inside joke… I present, the guts of the Catalyst Cabin. Video Below.



With a belly-skid constructed, the building elevated, and then seated on the trailer, it is time to haul the ‘shed’ to its new home where it will become gold.


Just cruising, you know, with a 17 foot wide 28 foot long load… Too good times, new experiences, and lofty goals!


No, this was not a one-time load then offload. The truth is, the constraints of the loading site made it necessary to offload the beast on the road in front of my home first. We then reversed the trailer, loaded her again and…


Then we brought the shed to her resting spot like the pedal of a Fall rose… Not really, the next step actually took 3 hours.


And that step was backing the 17’x22′ shed, a 17×28 foot load, through a 20 foot opening between my house an the garage at an angle to meet ‘just-so’ on the foundation in order to miss all the plumbing, electrical, conduits, and sill plate pins… Got to love the challenge!


And here she sits, the trailer was barely removed by literally half-an-inch between the house on one side, and the corner bracing holding the shed up!!!

Here is some video of the after move:

I left an ‘I’ out of the text in the video, see if you can find it and make a point of that instead of the content;)

For the song of the day, well, Puscifer is still in play! Volume people volume, feel it too! “Standing on the edge of forever, witnessing the majesty!” Puscifer – Grand Canyon



All Hallows Slaughter: Paddock Chicken, Is Good Chicken

It's the time of the year that all Roosters fear. All Hallows Slaughter... Not really, generally I have this job done already, and since I am late I will have to cull 5 more after the new Hens start laying in a month or so....

Catalyst Coop Walk Through 4-21-15 : Preview to 2015 growing season

Omega to its core, we all experience and explore.

Omega to its core, we all experience and explore.

Howdy hello,

I’m back to present another installment of the Coops evolution, which, includes a new bridge for the question mark shaped sink and pond, finished deck and wood shed area, the chicken tractor in use, a rare view of the woodlot, and the new water fall frog pond. But for those who have followed the progress here, you will see many many other changes.

This is a preview of the 2015 growing season, check back soon to see the whole place overgrown with edibles and medicinals.

This years chicks are on there way after finally having a hen go broody. I hope she stays for the long haul. I did not get the chance to bring in a new rooster for color, so next year it is I guess…

Many of the fruit trees and berry bushes are starting to gain size, many annuals have natural crafted themselves and continue to return, and new plants such as Goji berry and currents have been planted this spring.

The place is maturing, just as it should. But as a reminder to my readers, for the exception of any earth works none of these beds were ever tilled even once. This place was one flat brick that very few things grew on. Only mulch of many types, and growing what would grow has produced this place. The soil is maturing, more is growing, and all the extra hardship just to ad my own kind of personal challenge to this type of gardening. Not to mention perennializing my annuals by strengthening their genetics for easy self seeding.

So the work being done, lets have some fun. For a song tonight, tonight… Because, “time is never time at all.”

Catalyst Coop, October 2014, 3 Part Walk Through Video Series

I actually had a guy tell me from this picture that the one on the left must be the fresh egg... Palm to face, and sigh...

Hello again from the middle of Kansas,

Today’s video revolves around more progress and explanation from the Catalyst Coop. The modern homestead with advanced creativity. This will include a good view of the Chicken paddock system as well, which, houses 8 Chickens at the moment. Just about the max for the 4,000 +/- sqft that it all sits on.

The advancements here at my little farm are profound given the lack of money used in its construction, and lack of time while also slaving for the dollar, yet it could be so much more with only a few hundred dollars every year that I didn’t have to give away. I know very well that merit plays a negligible role in modern society, because I know with logic and reason my own experiences in this economic life. America’s trendsetter’s, outsiders, rebels, and of course Catalyst’s are not well placed in society as we should be.

It isn’t just color people discriminate against. Often times as I see it, it is ‘better’ that people discriminate against… And that damn sure is no ego, it is simply reality of ego-compensation as I term it. The idiocracy movie that has not been written yet maybe,,, where the stupid people don’t just outnumber, they also don’t want smart people in their lives and would rather get rid of them… Sound a little too real? Sounds like those new fangled fast Zombies… Comedy! I know it is different elsewhere, but I am here.

Many ‘movements’ are trying to stop this plausible reality of devolution and bring about an educated society of equal opportunity for all. These are some that I personally appreciate. The Venus Project, The Zeitgeist Movement, and The Meritocracy Party.

Though the first two have amazing opportunities for the future, The Meritocracy project could very well be the stepping stone to that resource based economic goal; not to mention Meritocracies long-lasting social implications revolving around merit as advancement to ones desired place in society. Something that is sold to us today as free market capitalism and the American dream, all the while dynasties of family money actually make all the important decisions and appoint their crony friends to their supplemental positions. Leaving many bright and under appreciated citizens wondering what the hell?

Okay, back to the farm, a change that I can make in my own life right now.

Those who enjoyed my previous videos will also enjoy this series of 3. As always there is some creative thinking going on here at The Coop!

July 24 2014 Music Video Update: Post 4 Part Series

Oh so many ways for me to show you how...

Oh so many ways for me to show you how…

As promised, today I post another video showing a months progress after the 4 part walk through series. If you have kept up with all I have posted, writing and video alike, then this post will serve your evolutionary desire.

Most of the garden, especially the central area around the pond/sink, is freshly installed this year. Thus, the maturation of the soil has been upset. With the exception of the seedling establishment phase I have watered nothing this entire season. The two equate to smaller plants, and less desirable aesthetics for the fruits themselves, yet stronger genetics.

Manual Link Here.

Music video or not, here is the song for this post. It’s not like you killed someone… Again I suggest volume…
