2. I was maybe kind of going to watch this movie, but watching the trailer a second time put me off...

... the odds approaching one hundred percent it was going to make me angry.

Hell, now the trailer has made me angry.

My father-in-law was born in a farm workers tent not far from there, and my parents once owned a small farm just over the hill.

I know this place well.

There's nothing "natural" here, nothing at all.

Faux environmentalism and the unjustified celebration of rural lifestyles is a distraction from the very real environmental problems that will destroy our world civilization.

I used to have a subscription to Mother Earth News but I quit that a long time ago.

Frankly we ought to be paying people to experiment with lifestyles having extremely small environmental footprints, and we should be judging their success on a scale of happiness. Then we should promote those lifestyles. Mostly these will be urban lifestyles.

I don't give a shit about one-percenters and their hobby farms.

4. Coyotes regularly slaughtered my parent's chickens, ducks, and farm cats.

Sometimes in broad daylight, and in spite of the fact that our bigger-than-coyote dogs hated coyotes.

It got old really fast.

Our chickens used to follow me mowing, eating all the insects I stirred up. Once I was mowing and turned over an old rotten 2 X 8. There were baby mice under there. The chickens ate those too. Later the coyotes ate the chickens. Circle of life stuff. Eventually my parents quit keeping chickens and ducks. They couldn't afford the sort of fencing required to keep poultry safe.

My wife and I now live a few hundred miles north. We used to have a problem with snails and slugs in our mostly organic garden until the starlings arrived. I'm now quite a fan of starlings, natural enemy of the garden snail and likewise an invasive pest themselves.

Frankly California needs grizzly bears and wolves. Until they return, we're just pretending.
