The Week in Vegan: Fake Blood and Half-Naked Hunks

Posted By on Mon, Oct 13, 2014 at 12:30 PM


The newest discovery in fake meat is "blood" which is derived from plants, has the same taste and even bleeds like a steak would. You think that's gory? Try remembering the last time you ate meat and realizing that the thing that made it so delicious wasn't the charbroiled goodness that Burger King inflicts on their Whoppers, but the lingering taste of blood. Whatever, as long as it's synthetic, I'm into it. 

A small study has revealed that a vegan lifestyle may be beneficial to those living with multiple sclerosis. Also: All the study participants lost weight, so that's good. 

These vegan cakes are so intensely amazing that even non-vegans are flocking to Ahimsa Custom Cakes to give their events a delicious eyegasm. 

Love Scandal? Love Mellie? Love the fried chicken she's seen chowing down on like all the time? Guess what: It's vegan! And, according to Bellamy Young, who plays Mellie (arguably the best character on the show) it's the most delicious chicken in the world. BRB, going to go try to friend her on Facebook. 

It's getting close to the holiday season, meaning that some of you (and me) are getting ready to knit our loved ones something a little special — like two socks that don't match in size. Here's a guide on yarns you should be using if you want to keep your crafts cruelty-free. 

Here's a little eye candy for your Monday blues: A calendar featuring half-naked dudes holding puppies. Don't worry, it's for a good cause so it's totally okay.

This panda is you right now.

  • 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.'"
