  1. Chana Masala Naan Samosas(really any indian food) Falafel Anything from the chicago diner, but mainly the Reuben and Cheesecake Chocolate Chip cookies soy/rice/dairy free ice cream pomegranate tofu my girlfriend's vegan cupcakes she makes me beer lots of bread, I'm a gluten fiend sometimes
  2. The EP will probably be on cdbaby.com and maybe iTunes as well(although iTunes quality isn't that much better than myspace). I'll check out that other site! Thanks!!
  3. Being vegan doesn't automatically make you a nice person. I usually like vegans and vegetarians more than the average joe but I still find an asshole veggie every now and then. Some people have dispositions like that for one reason or another. Maybe they're going through a tough time, or they went through a tough time that traumatized them. I don't really know where I'm going with this. I just woke up.
  4. Yeah we get along great. Unfortunately after this show on Friday I can't play with them anymore because I'm transferring to another college. No big deal though, I love them all and they're still my friends, plus we already found another drummer to take my place! You should read the story about how we formed if you think our nicknames are funny!
  5. It's on the shitty myspace player now. We're apparently starting to sell them this Friday so if anybody wants me to mail em one we're selling em for 2 bucks a pop(not including shipping). I'll let you know more info about that if anybody wants to buy one. But for now just go to our Myspace and check it out!!!! http://www.myspace.com/jackhammerhoganson p.s. I'm also on myspace now so add me... http://www.myspace.com/greenbonevegansaur
  6. I'd really like to go out Darth Vader style with a huge funeral pyre but my friend whose parents are morticians advises me that the stench would be quite terrible.
  7. Breathing and just accepting the pain is really the only way. Drinking thins your blood and only terrible tattoo artists will tattoo you if you're drunk and pain killers don't work. Some of my shading felt good. I'll hopefully get some more work done on my nature sleeve this summer. Maybe my VU meter too!!! Looks good so far!
  8. I listen to the Howard Stern show sometimes(my dad has Sirius) and one day I heard Arty teasing her about being vegan. I had no idea. They do talk about how she's lost so much weight (i'm guessing since going vegan) so maybe that will influence all those truckers out there with satellite radio.
  9. Mogwaï is amazing! Try Mùm also if you don't already know them. Also check out Sparrows Swarm And Sing The Ascent Of Everest Godspeed You Black Emperor Explosions In The Sky(i saw them on Austin City Limits, and I'm on the taping that made it to TV!!!!!!) Mono(amazing) Pelican(Chicago band, their drummer is eh, but i love em) Tortoise Slint A Silver Mount Zion HRSTA Antennas To Heaven (name based off a Godspeed You Black Emperor album) There are many more awesome post-rock bands out there.
  10. I never said he was. He does have a good video series about basically growing up with the Jewish anarchist community of New York in the 30s though.
  11. Just ask the artist if they have gelatin in their inks and if they would mind using a brand that doesn't have that. Some artists won't compromise unfortunately. I know that deluxe tattoo in Chicago and Elgin Tattoo in Elgin Illinois use vegan inks.
  12. You should check out videos of Noam Chomsky talking about it. He covers a lot of ground on it and explains the differences of American and European Libertarianism, how the Anarchist movement came about during the industrial revolution when people began realizing that they were worth more than wages. There have actually existed anarchist communities within Capitalist countries since the mid 1800s. It's really fascinating in my opinion. Read anything by Emma Goodman, Abbie Hoffman or Noam Chomsky. All good anarchist/social libertarian reads. Kropotkin is another good one, although he is more of a communist anarchist. There are subtle differences such as end goals and the means to get there.
  13. Its no different...those are symbols to the Japanese that aren't any different than the character letters. They tell stories that relate to Japanese people and Japanese history. Many traditional Japanese would even be offended by the idea of considering those symbols as only fish or waves, and many are either offended by the "Japanese" tattoo movement of the west since we don't really understand any of it. I have to agree with vegan potter on this one. Except that many japanese people are offended by tattoos because of their very very close relationship with the Yakuza in Japan. You can't go in the public baths there if you have tattoos because generally that meant you were a Yakuza member. It's not that way anymore but Japan tends to hold on to their traditions for a very long time. If i were ever to get a Japanese tattoo I would get it done in Japan and get it done the traditional "single needle plus hammer" way. No gun.
  14. Cool, I move this Saturday and I love to eat! You know Jaaron and the other BI/BO guys too, right? I too am from Chicago but I'm down in Decatur for school. I'll be sure to message you if I go back up there before school is over or when I get back this summer. You can find a place to do yoga and a rock wall pretty much anywhere. They have tons and tons of gyms all over the city. I don't know of any really good ones cause I'm from the burbs but I'm sure if you ask around you'll find out really quick. What part of Chicago are you living in?
  15. I know and totally agree with you philosophically. Realistically though it's going to take some time before these people find another job that is just as lucrative AND ethically sane enough to drive them away from breeding. I feel sorry because it's their passion and living. Now the bad breeders I really wouldn't feel terrible at all if they all lost their jobs tomorrow. I still certainly would not get a dog from any breeder, ethical or not. It's even more like having children to sell into slavery. Not to mention the people who are buying this designer bred dogs are rich bastards(For the most part) who get the dogs purely for social imagery. You know, minivan, SUV, sports car, 4 car garage, 4k foot house, white picket fence, 2 kids, 5 bedroom home, and a 4k dollar dog that probably will end up having tons of genetic disease because of over breeding. I've been in a very anti-capitalist mood lately in case you couldn't tell.
  16. Well if he was fit before his muscles did probably have some muscle memory built up. Not to mention when you diet like that your metabolism gets pretty retarded so I bet that made it a lot easier for him to bulk. Steroids creep me out. I'm pretty sure I definitely knew at least one athlete in high school who was on them and some of the football players at my D3 school are pretty stacked. Who knows how they pass testing.
  17. I can function on very little sleep, I just prefer not to because I usually crash pretty hardcore on the weekends and sleep for 12+ hours if I do that all week. I've been getting 6-8 lately. 14 hours when I was sick the other day. And delirious through most of it. Fun.
  18. Crap, I was going to take a really cool one but now there's no point. I have an older picture when I just got my tattoo and I had to wear a tank top and my VBBF shirt is the only tank I have. My girlfriend(although not veg) wears my shirt sometimes when she's over and is lounging. It's hot, and gives me hope that maybe she'll go vegan. She's already lactose intolerant, hates eggs, is allergic to beef and really likes me cooking.
  19. My dad used to work at the vet when he was a kid and when we moved to our first house when I was in high school he said the only way we were getting a dog was if we adopted it from a shelter. We even went to one place that was supposedly an adoption place but just turned out to be another puppy farm. There's a huge puppy store by my house that I've considered picketing or trying to get shut down. It's really sick and fucked up. Some breeders are good ethical people. Problem is most people don't care or don't realize that the majority of them are just in it for the money and don't care about the dogs at all.
  20. Good point. For many reasons, I won't be sad to see Bush go. Not to mention the money he gives to Africa helps US Business interests. Fun stuff.
  21. Crap I should have put mine on today. I was so feverish earlier. Some of my professors got some funny emails.
  22. I was just reading some of his lyrics last week before my radio show and was thinking to myself "hmmm, wonder if this guy is veg?" I'm totally buying this book. And reading it in public. All day and night.
  23. I just wanted to say that Natural brew root beer is the best damn root beer ever in the entire world. Expensive as hell but who cares!!!!! (it's like 5 bucks for a 4 pack here in Decatur)
  24. I miss pizza on occasion. I like to make my own now that I know how to do it and have the vegan cheese to give it that nice texture.
