Ten Years Vegan

Hi, how ya been? It’s been a year-and-a-half since my last post, but I’m not willing to let the blog die altogether, so here I am posting on my ten-year veganversary. On October 13, 2004–the day before I turned 29–I came home from work, sat down for dinner and fired up “Meet Your Meat.” Afterward, I said, “Screw it. I’m vegan now.” Backing up a bit… Just...

More on ex-vegans

After the “I”m not vegan anymore” post by Alexandra Jamieson a few weeks ago, there were all the expected reactions: anger, disappointment, insults, and, yes, support. I avoided responding right away because I wanted to make sure my reaction was appropriate and thought out. I like Alexandra. I interviewed her a few years ago for Herbivore and have liked...

Thea Tribute – elroy Goes Veg

Hey folks… long time no talk, eh? I fully plan on being more active here again and have a handful of posts I’ve been meaning to finish, and I will. Eventually. Now, though, I wanted to share a guest post by a friend of mine that I’ve known since elementary school. We reconnected a couple of years ago on Facebook and I was surprised and happy to find...

Christiano

When Amina passed away, I was in Las Vegas for a conference. It was quite difficult to be away from the family and by the end of my trip, I was very much ready to get back home. Three days after Amina died (and on my last full day in town), I got up early, hopped into my rental car, and headed to the edge of town to go for a slightly crazy run in the...

Amina

It’s been two years since Amina passed away and it’s taken me this long to write an entry about her. And even with all that time, writing a little bit here and there as it felt right, the post was still a tough one to put together. History In the fall of 2004, Amina was found wandering on a highway near Lynchburg, VA and brought to a nearby shelter....

Hacked

The WordPress theme I’ve been using has been hacked for a second time, so clearly there’s an exploit they’re not correcting. This resulted in my host shutting me down temporarily with a DMCA takedown notice (!). I’ve temporarily switched the theme in order to get rid of the exploit and I’ll be finding a new theme shortly.

Challenged by a talking hen

I’ve been reading the Oz books with Rasine for about a year now. There have been some animal-friendly parts in the first two books, particularly with the Tinman, a gentle pacifist of a character that never wants to harm a living being. We’re on the third book, Ozma of Oz and we came across an interesting passage where Dorothy’s own eating habits are...
