  • Ready to cut out meat in 2014? Here's some information. Read it and then try a new vegetable. Even if you don't like vegetables (like me).
  • Speaking of new vegetables, here's mine: mirilton. Have you even heard of this before? It sounds like a one-name pop star: Cher, Madonna, Mirilton. They're delicious stuffed. Shout out to Cajun Pacific, where I tried this delicious vegetable pear for the first time. Here's a recipe.

  • Good Morning America featured a vegan couple -- in their 60s -- who ran a marathon every day of 2013. AND WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY, LAZY? That's a rhetorical question. You may have done something awesome and I can't hear it because today I ate an entire bag of cookies while listening to an audio book which is literally the least you could do and still be considered living.
  • Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote a new piece on animals and how amazing they are and he has the best name and says some seriously wise shit. Read it.
  • Did you see that dogs might poop in line with the Earth's magnetic field? Holy crap, dogs are so smart. Or magical. Or something. Something is going on there. (Probably a coincidence.)
  • Patrick Stewart moos in a British accent because life is perfect and he doesn't give a fuck. Any cow experts (or actual cows? Holla to my bovine readers!) here? Is he on point?
  • Breakfast for dinner! And lunch! And breakfast!
  • Remember the "vegans are crybabies who have fun by crying and then crying some more" sign from last week? Well, it turns out that the butcher shop was using a joke by Myq Kaplan, who is vegan. And they didn't credit him! Come on you guys! For what it's worth, I still stand by my statement that there is nothing more fun than crying in public. #liveyourbestlife
  • This greyhound dog is wearing Batman PJs and is running in the snow. He is our new vegan mascot. Embrace it.

  • 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.'"
