Welcome to my Tiny House! (video)

Welcome to my Tiny House!
Here is the first video of many to come from my off the grid, in the city, tiny house adventure. I’ve moved in and life is about to get real sweet. Well, it’s already sweet, but even sweeter now!

I just moved in a few days ago so a lot of work is sure to come, but soon I’ll be growing food, harvesting rain water, cooking with a rocket stove, powering up with solar panels, composting to create healthy soil, and using a compost toilet. I have no bills and no debt and will be living the good life in this 50 square foot tiny home! Simple living in the city!

I vow to donate 90% of my media earnings to the earth

With some big announcements to come soon, I could easily begin coasting through life right now. This year I’m working on a documentary, publishing a book, and I’m also in talks with multiple networks about a TV show. Rather than coast though I am leading by example more than ever before. I’m not in this for the money or the fame. I’m in it to create a just world full of happiness, health, and equality for all. So I’ve vowed to donate 90% of my earnings to happiness, health, and freedom for all.

All my stuff… fits on my bike!

This is the least amount of stuff I’ve owned, quite possibly since the beginning of my owning of stuff.

For years and years I wanted stuff and I wanted a lot of it. I grew up thinking that a big house behind a big fence was what I wanted when I was older. I dreamed of having a really shiny car. I wanted boats and jet skis. I wanted to really impress people with my stuff.

From Drunk Dude to Dude Making a Difference

Not that long ago, my main priorities included binge drinking every weekend, looking good, and macking on pretty much every good looking girl I saw. I also wanted to be rich and to own lots of really impressive things. I was pretty tuned into that life and didn’t really think too much about how my actions affected the environment, people around the world, and the animals that we share the earth with. I was pretty selfish and if I did think about my actions I certainly didn’t do much about it. I did recycle, shut off the lights and water, and eat healthier than the average person I knew and I thought that was doing pretty good. But the list of negative environmental impacts was far greater than my positive impacts (which was nearly nonexistent). I owned two cars, shopped at Walmart for my food and my cheap crap, drank the cheapest beer I could find, took home my share of plastic bags, wasted plenty of water, ate too much meat, needed the newest gadgets always, and the list could go on and on. Not that any of these things are inherently bad but they definitely were not deeply serving myself or the earth.

Taking Responsibility for My Flights

I’ve come to the realization that the flights I take are quite detrimental to the earth. I’ve made hundreds of changes in my life to live more earth friendly but I’m not giving up flying completely as of now. However starting today I’m taking some serious responsibility for the flights that I do take.

Arrested for Dumpster Diving for Food? I’ve Got You Covered.

We throw away nearly half of all the food we produce in the United States while 1 in 7 Americans are often unsure of where their next meal will come from. To me that is absurd, a country with such an abundance of food with such an abundance of hunger.

I’m not down with this.

I’m not down with throwing away all this perfectly good food.

I’m not down with hungry children and elders.

I’m not down with the environmental havoc created by dumping billions of pounds of food.

I’m not down with all the animals that are raised and killed just to end up in a dumpster.

My Tiny Home is in the News and I Haven’t Even Moved In Yet!

11 minutes after I posted a photo of my new tiny home on Facebook Joe Little from Channel 10 News wanted to do a story. I told him the house wasn’t really ready yet, but sure why not. 5 minutes later I got a request from the The SD City Beat. Lot’s of excitement around this little guy. I’ve decided along with the builder, Chris Scott, I’m going to use my home to help get people off the streets. This has been a dream of his for decades and at the age of 70 something we’re going to fight homelessness together.
