Some preliminary Off-Grid John videos.

As some of you know, I have decided to move to the off-grid location very shortly.  This is both for personal, artistic, ethical and situational reasons (meaning concerns about the economy, etc).  I plan on documenting a lot of my what I do there on this blog and on videos that will end up on my YouTube channel.  I am doing this because I am a vain little glory pig and a publicity whore...


What I meant to say was that I am going to document my trials and tribulations and joys so those of you who are interested in the Voluntary Simplicity lifestyle can see how a guy who has spent most of his life in the concrete jungle copes with living in the woods in a 200sqft yurt with no plumbing, electrical hookup, or gas or electric heat.  I think this is a worthwhile project as I suspect that this is a lifestyle that may become one that people may be living in the near future when they have no choice in the matter...the choice may be made for them by the more we can learn NOW, the better off we'll be.

I have already shot a few videos that I am putting up here.  Two are just of a couple comical encounters with birds and one is a video about foraging.  I have a couple more of a tree-felling and a potato storage experiment that I have yet to edit, and then I will be shooting all kinds of new videos!

MUCH more to come...and MUCH more of a pragmatic and hopefully useful nature.

More tunes on the John Ludi YouTube Channel

Before I end up in the woods full time, I wanted to put as many of my tunes up on YouTube as possible.  I'm starting with Hell's Laughter and Heaven's Ache, but I should eventually have the 7 current albums and one or two that I have had sitting around in "storage".

A brief update.

Just to let people know that I am going through some very significant changes in my life and things may be rather sporadic in the near term, but that I will be working on more music and other projects in the near future. 

One of those projects may be an entirely new blog devoted to the aforementioned changes and how I deal with them, as I think that such a project would be greatly useful to other people who will increasingly feel the need to make such changes in their own lives.
