  • In piggy news, grocery chain Kroger AND New Jersey are both giving gestation crates the boot! Huzzah! Obviously this is an excellent time to make a joke at New Jersey's expense but I'm not going to because Jersey is actually my third favorite state.
  • For all you Dangerous Minds fans, which I'm pretty sure includes everyone and their mom, you'll be excited to know that Michelle Pfeiffer has adopted a vegan diet! Welcome to the celebrity vegan diet club, Michelle. Meetings will be at Cinnaholic. Wear your fat jeans.

  • Well, well, well, what do we have here?! It's vegan lobster bisque from Vegan Belle! Did you ever imagine such a thing? Me neither. It's got lobster mushrooms! I swear, mushrooms are tiny aliens sent to freak us out and get in my way when I eat miso soup.
  • There's an interesting national AP story about a federal bill to ban battery cages and how the meat and dairy industry is taking a stand! A wildly unethical stand!
  • I've got big TV news for you! Terry Hope Romero and some other super vegans have a new show set to hit PBS this fall! Vegan Mashup is TV for us! As TV is my BFF, you know I'll be watching (in between SVU reruns, naturally).
  • If there's two things I like, it's veganism and naked dudes. That's why I'm a little disappointed with PETA's porn site, which has officially launched; I couldn't find any dudes except Ron Jeremy! That gets a "no thanks" with a capital EW.

  • On Vegansaurus this week, we have an interesting discussion going about why veganism is so contentious. Vegans getting mad at partial "vegans," omnis getting mad at us both--what is the deal! Thoughts?
  • The East Bay Express has an interesting piece about keeping chickens as pets. I don't think I could keep chickens in my apartment, but when I get my dream farm, chickens there will be. I'm going to give them awesome names like Knowledge and Power. They're going to be baddass. Knowledge Rascal has a lovely ring!
  • Lastly, MissionMission reports that the much-celebrated meat substitute Beyond Meat will be making appearances in SF Whole Foods locations next week! Get free samples at::

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
