‘Latest Vegan News’

I hate being obligated to share information I am pretty much drawn in to find when I already tried to tell people tactfully. Especially since I rarely confirm any actual readers of my life’s work and it seems like someone else tells everyone before I get the chance.

I found this website and there was a rather bold post about this topic I have been thinking about. The problems are “too many to confront”. If people can’t do it for themselves then why would you do it for your pets? I guess animal cruelty is the answer, but we are just as cruel to each other. Also, expanding on this topic would pretty much halt almost every activity we do everyday to really change. However, to be less hypocritical for places like animal shelters where the pet may have been abused or mistreated, why would we serve them other animals that have been killed? If anyone has an excuse for eating chicken it would be me. I was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident in Cambodia because a chicken was flying across the road. It walked as it approached the road and took off just in time to nearly collide with me before I broke and slid on the heavy antique. For awhile I thought this way. Then one day I bought some ramen on my road trip shortly before becoming vegan. I read the codes on the packaging and don’t ask me how, but it told me how my life was going to change soon.

One chicken that almost took away my life doesn’t justify eating anymore than zero. The local who walked up to me to see what happened said, “Do you believe in Jesus?” I said, “Yes.”

This is no news, so I am still dealing with good news.

April’s tracks are completed in the below post.

FYI 5.12-5.13.18

Update 3.10.18
You can listen to most of these on YouTube or Soundcloud in full, but try not to watch the video that goes with the soundtrack. Videos densensitize the listening experience and especially if choosing for a mix may distort your decision. Good songs should be able to stand alone. I got into DJing because I was originally an album type of person and still am, but for the past two months and a half I’ve had one song on my old cracked iPad.

Wisin – Prohibida (feat. Zion & Lennox)

Top Gear

Speaking of shows I loved… Well I guess Jeremy Clarkson had that ‘near crossing-the-line’ sense of humor, but I thought he made the show? I haven’t seen ‘BBC’s Top Gear’ in awhile and one day I should own all the old episodes to see what happened. I guess that crew made a new show, I just found out, only on Amazon. The Grand Tour

Another person we can remember today in a different way is Tom Petty. Easy to take his music for granted because it was so classic. There are a lot of songs that play everywhere and you might not have thought that was him. I never really owned his albums and find it impossible to imitate that range and style of vocals.

Mix from NestHQ : Ducky (from 2 Years ago, it’s really unique)
