Dennis Kucinich for President!

I am absolutely totally in love with vegans who consider it their mission to spread love, joy & compassion around the world.

Vegan music continued...

ok, i know i'm definitely going to lose some cool points here... but i also have to mention that i like shania twain, kd lang & bryan adams. they're all Canadian & they're all vegan! is that why i like them? i don't know... but hey, at least i'm being honest! i don't actually own albums by any of them (back track.. back track!!) but they all deserve a high five for their music & their veganism.

The Vegan Police (they live inside my head)

On Sunday I had a super relaxed cool chat about a ton of random topics with Dylan from The Vegan Police. It's amazing how much stuff you can talk about in a 1/2 hour. We talked about our mutual love for Animal Voices, TOFU, amazing vegan bands, animal sanctuaries... well you should just listen here:

Grill Champions

I think this is hands down, my favourite music video with dancing veggies.

Some songs I love by some fine vegan artists

I recently got asked if I would chat with my good buddy Dylan on his super swish podcast "Vegan Police". Can't wait! It's going to be so fun! AND I will be on the same podcast that just interviewed the lovely Sarah Kramer! Very exciting, i feel a little like a celebrity. I haven't written an incredible cookbook, so I'm not sure what we're going to talk about, but I AM sure that it will be entertaining & fun. I'm also sure I'll sound like a nerd.... but whatever.

Dylan asked me if I'd give him some of my fave vegan musicians/bands/songs, so here's a little list, and I'll let him select the ones that get played.

Bob Wiseman - Sweet Gertrude, Born to love you
Propagandhi - Human(e) Meat
Amanda Rogers - Hibernating
Sketchy Indians - All you need, Mallory McGee
Vegan Mosquitos - Bloodbath on the beach
Jah Sun - No Bonez No Blood
Bif Naked - Fuck you 2
The Blow - Parenthesis (are these guys vegan? i'm not sure... but the song definitely has a vegan "feel", and they're from Portland...isn't everyone in Portland vegan?!)
Beloved Binge - Dead Cow Walking
GaiaisI with Lee Baillie - Enjoy your Meal
Andrew Thomas Hunter - Allergic to Love
Chrissie Hynde - Boots of Chinese Plastic
Cordoba Mendoza - everything of course!

I also love Erykah Badu, Moby, Paul McCartney, Joan Jett, I'm sure that I'm forgetting a ton of great vegan songs... but that's all I can think of for the moment & now I'm off to bed. Just let me know if I forgot your favorite vegan artist or song.

By the way, I'm not forgetting Morrisey - I've just never liked his music much. sorry!
