"Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Like a Kick in the..."
Sure, I could have added the sound effects, but the download was taking HOURS! So, here is the all-at-once reading of "Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Like a Kick in the..." until I have a better version. For a sudden read & one pass through the editor, you won't be disappointed! If you are, well, your likely one of those six ol' soreheads I am always seeing on city signs around the country. You can read the entire article on Medium if you like, here. If you enjoy it, it would help improve the productions to have a larger audience! Subscribe!

Spontaneous, Random Inspector Gadget Beat Box Music Moment in the Middle of a Desert.
Oftentimes, the most random, unsought experiences can occur that alter the trajectory of one's life. Many of those occurred for me at the 2012 Burning Man event. From it, my ex-wife fell in love, came out of the closet, and re-married the woman she met that year, whom I introduced her to! They live in Berkeley now and are divorcing, but that was one of many monumental, life-changing shifts that occurred that year. For example, the gentleman behind me to my right in the photograph is Larry Welz. He is from Rosewell, NM. A comic artist I would learn later after he was already riding with me in my pickup to that year's event from NM. It was a 21 hr trip one way. We were both a part of the Circle of Regional Effigies project, or C.oR.E., designed to build communities of burners around the globe. He was the creator and artist who created 'Cherry,' an adult comic book that had actually found its way into my guilty hands when I was in my early teens. Now he was in my truck!The project we took from New Mexico was Kokopelli Rising. It took six months to get that project, which was 25ft tall wooden effigy from NM to the Black Rock Desert. It was much harder than I could have imagined. I was one of the 5 project leads, helped galvanize the community around it, was in charge of transportation, and spent nearly every weekend for the previous 6 months in Albuquerque (a 3 hr one-way drive from where I lived in Farmington) to make it happen! There were probably 12 of us that mostly worked to make it happen out of the 60 that were associated in one way or another. of those 12, six of us were the driving force behind it.One night (I have always been a first to arrive, last to leave kind of guy), I could not find anyone willing to hang out. I finally gave up. I was going to go to the port-a-potties, then retire to sleep. Along the way, I passed this young man who was beatboxing along the side of one of the dusty "roads." I walked past him. I was interested, but it is effortless to get distracted at an event like Burning Man, so I kept on to the P.P... I happened to reach into the cargo pocket of my Utilikilt. I pulled out a digital recorder that I had desperately and unsuccessfully searched for, in vain, before coming to the event. The fact that it seemed to 'appear' in my cargo pocket, and that it was a recorder, and that the guy was freestyling on the side of the road was too much. I turned around and went back. What you hear is that interaction. Raw. When he began, he was looking directly into my eyes. It was intimidating and awkward, but he looked for all the world like he wanted me to join him.I had NEVER beatboxed before or engaged in any musical improvisation in my life up to that point; however, I jumped in, and what happened was MAGICAL! You never know what will happen! It taught me to listen to my 'gut' more often and be available, even if I am tired and already rolling on other ideas. You can look at a few pictures here.~Adrian P.Y. Bluimberg

Let It Burn *Song Portion
My youngest son, Judah, a.k.a. June (pronounced Jew-see), got a couple of early B-day gifts, a wood-burning kit, I and, surprisingly, a djareedoo. Almost 15, he learned he enjoyed wood-burning, and he is a natural, near-savant level of talent with the djareedoo! Inside of 30 minutes and he was outperforming anyone I have ever known who played. Listen to a song once or twice, and he was picking it up. To enshrine the weekend, I composed the music while he burned wood, then did a live cast with him. Despite some technical challenges, we got something packaged and uploaded. Here are the two raw files

Season 1 Bonus: Fred Breaks Down NFT's for the Average Joe and Joan American
Fred, a new contributor to the E.S.C. Hatch who is quite the character! He recently read an article decrying the loss of memes to the younger folks through their commodification and essential copyright of these "memes" through the use of Non-Fudgable Tokens, or N.F.T.'s. NFT's are being bandied about and can apparently solve all problems from the screws used in your dishwasher to every single onion layer of animation, and all the way down to Inspector 19, who inspects Fruit o the Loom, is lining up to get their just deserts! Fred has some definite thoughts on this, and all under 3 Minutes!

The ESC Hatch ~ Sunday Night Show
This show is about Truth, as is every show, but the full concept of what the basis for an ESC Hatch is about. This was recorded In Adin, CA, from the Haven of Rest. We headed up to the clearest skies in the country on Mt. Shasta and the surrounding countryside. My youngest son has a telescope, and we cannot get good views in the Bay area, so we are checking out the son's telescope and the stars and planets. Not sure if we will make it back in time to do a Sunday night show, so this is the stand in for that possibility.

The ESC Alive Hatch Weekly RoundUp 3_29_21
Got new skills and new tools. 'mic check' was eventually cashed, then I explain why the Truth of Human Life is the foundational cornerstone for The ESC Hatch, and all Pilgrims and Greenhorns engaged with it. Then Ali calls in from India. He is a 22 year old student studying to become a govt diplomat, with his goal to become an ambassador and retire at 60.We exchanged very open and deep questions, then dove into the meaning of living at all. After the call, myself, along with some mixed culture "yuths", @Stuart, @ZomieLover, et al., did a "post show" exploration of human social engagement where they chatted my channel up. I also learned to be a 'podhuld', or 'cuckpod', or 'livecuck'. Whatever you call a host whose audience has taken over the chat, leaving me to read their chat in a multitude of voices, From Donald Duck, to James Bond. Droopy Dog, Shaggy, the Ice King and many others. I also reported on our current project progress. Check us out to find out when we will be 'hatching' in a city near you!

WE are Earth,And Our Garden,Does not seem well.Eden cries out,That it is not hidden,Nor lost.Marco Molitor on UnsplashEden wants to be seen,Under Our feet,Felt in Our blackening lungs,In the unnatural grit,In Our teeth when We drink,And in other Deep Places,Of which We do not speak.MEAX on UnsplashWhether YOU see, or sense is irrelevant,Once OUR Collective Self,First knew, Its own mortality,Our absolute lack of ability,To save, or ever after answer why,Would our Creator make,Such beauty, only to annihilate,Our Earth, Our Garden, Our Blue Sky?David Sutton on UnsplashIn fathomless sadness,We refused the Knowledge,Of Ourselves, within ANY Garden,Choosing to live within the waterfall,Of every single tear, from every eye falling,In each, and all, and any coming year.Matteo do Orio on UnsplashWe must release Our Fear.The requirement of Life, is its Death.Yet that does not mean, We should part early.If We stop what The Fear, shall never mend,And in Love Born in One again,Will All grow strong, As Love Borne by All, Once Again,... yes, Again.Matte Adame on UnsplashLet Us continue, with the only Eden,We will ever have, and have ever known,From the start of the Big Loud Bang,‘Till the flat Ultra Vanta Black,Freezes even the Thought of Heat,And all Memory of Water, or Ground.Vruyr Martirosyan on UnsplashThis is the moment, We must choose,To, WAKE UP!or lie Forever,Having not chosen, in Our Self-Made Prisons:Frozen,Floating,In eternal terror found.The ESC Hatch by A.

Bring Out Your Dead-What Happens to One of Us, Affects Us All~ ESC Hatch Podcast Reading
I’ve seen enough people who die for an idea. I don’t believe in heroism; I know it’s easy and I’ve learnt it can be murderous. What interests me is living and dying for what one loves.~Albert Camus, from The Plague, 1947.On Monday, October 26th, 2020, my brother-in-law, whom I have known since I was 8 years old, died from complications from COVID-19 and a heart attack in Odessa, Texas.Read more hereFollow me here
