Help Rescued Chickens, Wild Horses Under Attack from Terrible Humans, and Butternut Mac 'n' Cheese Bites!

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 2:11 PM


Hey guys, let's start this week off with some sad news because that's how I do it: This is my last Week in Vegan! I'm moving on to different pastures (not killing myself, just a new job) and I wanted to say, writing with you as been among the most rewarding experiences in my life, and ALSO, Megan Rascal from Vegansaurus, who is taking over for me, is much funnier, smarter, and sexier* than yours truly, so promise me you'll still get loose with it? I love you.

Troma Entertainment made a short video about the animals people eat. It's totally great and hilarious and light-hearted and filled with merriment and joy. Check it out:

That bullfighter who was face-gored (horn through eye socket, son!) is now looking and acting just like a Batman villain! Super creeps! He's back in the ring, killing bulls with a vengeance. Sounds like a really great guy who is super smart about learning lessons and stuff. The most fucked up thing about bullfighting is that even when the bull wins, the bull loses. That's no sport, that's The Hunger Games. Also, WHO ELSE IS EXCITED FOR THE HUNGER GAMES? I'll be the grown-ass woman dressed like Peeta at the midnight showing.

There's an all-vegan episode of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network this weekend! Vegan gluttony on the boob tube, could anything be better? Make to watch sprawled naked in front of your TV, surrounded by a pile of puppies, spraying whipped cream into your maw. Sweet heaven, my friends!

• Yao Ming is not only hella tall and hella good at basketball, he also loves bears! Where's his racist ice cream flavor, motherfuckers?

• Watch this video of thousands of chickens being saved from that horrible place in Stanislaus county! It's a super great and touching video:

Now, go donate to them and go shopping for them and spread the word about how chickens are amazing and smart and goofy and little flying dinosaurs DO IT!

• I'm a little late on this but this pesto looks to be the BOMB. Let's you and me get jiggy with/in it. Also, BUTTERNUT MAC 'N' CHEESE BITES HOLY SHIT.

• You in New York City? Go to their Vegetarian Food Festival this weekend and eat for those of us who can't. Think of the children! And then restrict your caloric consumption because children can EAT. Speaking of New York, you're totally getting an all vegan clothing store, too! Vaute Couture is opening up, and they sell the cutest shit, so buy it all before you're too fat to fit into any of it. Plus sizes coming soon?? Fingers crossed!!

Your tax money is paying for the capture of wild horses. And it's actually even more fucked up than that because they're using that land to graze cattle. IT'S SO FUCKED UP. You guys, really, get angry about this and take some action because if we don't speak up for horses -- one of the symbols of American freedom! -- who will? And I know what you're thinking but Mister Ed BEEN dead, we can't count on him.

*Lie -- I'll always be the sexiest! Peace!

  • 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.'"
