Our Week in Pictures

Guess what time it is?  The following answers are acceptable:

  1. Time to see the UNBELIEVABLE shenanigans two domestic thirtysomethings got up to this week in brilliant color photographs as captured by my phone

Let me pause while I get my official reaction to this new together.   Read the rest of this entry

Get your Farm Sanctuary On


If you ever thought about going vegan, Gene Baur’s appearance on The Daily Show might be the thing that pushes you over the edge.  Mr. Baur makes the argument that a vegan lifestyle can make a difference in the fight against malnutrition, climate change, water shortages… you name it.  (Not to mention the toll current eating habits take on our animal friends.)  It’s one of the better interviews you’ll see Jon Stewart do (because so often, the interview segment is comprised of a friend of his promoting something, so they’re just BSing) and maybe it’ll change your mind about how you live your life… or at least get you thinking.

Obama saves 2 turkeys from a terrible fate



President Obama, in his annual turkey pardoning, said he was saving Mac and Cheese (the turkeys) “from a terrible and delicious fate.”  Now, as someone who advocates for animals, I’m going to ignore the use of the word “delicious” and focus instead on “terrible” and call this a win for my side.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

Oreo MADNESS!

As far as I can tell, all Oreos are vegan. Since I live cookies, I’ve never met an Oreo I didn’t like. Now there are more Oreo flavours than hanky can shake a stick at (weirdest saying ever, btw) and I must admit, there are some I like better than others. Read the rest of this entry

Mexican Restaurant Menu Suggests You Kidnap Children (Subliminally)

Check out the first item on the menu. You thought it said kidnap children, right? This is why I don’t eat chicken.

The Hundred-Foot Journey (quick movie review)


The Hundred-Foot Journey features great photography, color pallet and a marvelous cast that brings their A game, but as the movie drags on, its endless montages and meandering subplots turn a quality film into a movie that can’t keep your interest. Read the rest of this entry

Vegan Treats Bakery – Bethlehem, PA (vegan review)


Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA is the best bakery on the planet. You’re welcome. Go there.

You might be thinking, "But I don’t live anywhere near Bethlehem, PA," to which I must respond, "I just told you it’s the best bakery on earth. Rent, lease, buy or steal a car!" There are cannolis to be had!

(And no, I have no idea why the graphics in the video read "Vegan Sweets Bakery" despite the fact that you clearly read "Vegan Treats Bakery" on the walls of the bakery itself. There’s probably a reason… but I can’t figure out what it could be.)

Veggie Heaven – Teaneck, NJ (vegan restaurant review)


I won’t bore you with my fan boy worship of Veggie Heaven – let me just say that it’s the greatest restaurant ever in the history of food. You’re welcome. Read the rest of this entry

&pizza (quick vegan restaurant review)


I don’t have much to say about &pizza except that they’re GREAT. They hooked it up with the best vegan pizza I’ve ever had EVER. Exclamation points are not necessary – the food is that good.

Candle Cafe West (vegan restaurant review)


We had dinner at Candle Cafe West, located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side on Friday, August 8th. As I arrived early for my rendezvous with Dr. Girlfriend, my first stop was the bar, where things did not get off to a good start. Read the rest of this entry

Disney subtly suggests that Fur is Murder in 101 Dalmatians


In my lifetime, Disney has been very “be a pirate even though they’re the bad guys” and “sell your soul for a man, little girls!” but in the past, Disney sung songs in my tune.

101 Dalmatians has a super subtle message regarding the fur industry. It’s subtle, right? And it was only 1961, too! Disney was so progressive back then… Now all we get is a rehashing of Hamlet over and over again. Well, probably only the two times, but I’m sure you see my point. Disney isn’t exactly out there tackling income equality, but I suppose they deserve credit for distributing Wall-E.
