The Hells Angels At Altamont – What Really Happened

The infamous Altamont Speedway concert in 1969 was recognized as a turning point in the music scene, the hippie scene and the outlaw biker scene. It was a cultural shift from “The Summer of Love” to the dawning of “The evil hippie”, a branding that exposed the dark undercurrent running through the California rock music […]

Recent Shootings And “Voice To Skull” Technology

Recent Shootings And “Voice To Skull” Technology

There seems to be a reoccurring theme to some of the recent shootings in the past few years: Voices in the head tell the individual to commit an act of violence. Now, this type of mental illness is as old as society itself, but when the shooters are military trained, one has to wonder how […]

Review: “The Devil’s Chessboard” By David Talbot

There are books about the Nazis, books about spies, and books about the Kennedy assassination. David Talbot has managed to link all three in a pretty damned good history lesson about the dirty deals made at the end of World War 2 and beyond. Talbot’s book, “The Devil’s Chessboard – Allen Dulles, The CIA and […]

  • Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks
    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
  • Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard
    Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]
  • Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]
  • George And Barbara, A Couple Of Real Turkeys
    Flock of turkeys currently stalking our road *** Many years ago I was the caretaker of a 300-acre farm on the Columbia River in Oregon. The farms in the area were very isolated, with tons of wildlife. I planted corn and millet for game feed and the owners occasionally hunted there. Meanwhile, I grew huge […]
  • Review: “Surveillance Valley” By Yasha Levine
    Once in a while a book comes long that smacks you in the head and says: “This is whats really going on”. “Surveillance Valley – The Secret Military History Of The Internet” – by Yasha Levine, is just such a book. We live in an age of technical wonder, a quasi-magical age where information is […]
