So, every year at Thanksgiving the president 'pardons' one or two turkeys. It's seen as an expression of mercy and kindness, as clearly the turkeys are innocent and have done nothing to warrant their deaths. But it begs the question...if the kind and merciful thing is to pardon two innocent turkeys, then wouldn't it make sense to 'pardon' all turkeys? It's almost as if the subtext of the turkey pardoning is 'we're pardoning these two, as they're innocent, after which we're going to eat the skin and flesh of the 50,000,000 turkeys we had immigrants kill for us'. Apart from being gross and unethical it's also logically inconsistent: Killing an innocent creature is either good or bad, and pardoning two is a clear sign that everyone recognizes that killing innocent turkeys is egregious and unethical.
There are a lot of people who are interested in veganism, but they sometimes feel judged and criticized. Let's be kind and welcoming, even to people who might not agree with us.. I mean, I've been a vegan for 30 years, and I don't judge you for all those years when you were still eating at mcdonalds... let's lead by example, being healthy and humble, remembering that no one apart from Joaquin was born #vegan... I understand we're all passionate, but judging and criticizing isn't going to help the cause. Encourage people where they are, just as hopefully someone encouraged you before you became vegan.
I got to spend an hour with the #shirtlesspainter on @funnyordie and now I want to be a full time black light painter person. Ps my painting was inspired by an amazing interview with Robert Oppenheimer
Thanks for this picture from last night @chefitophoto ! After the @circlevfest show someone came up to me and said "I didn't know you played guitar " and I realized I've been playing guitar for 43 years...I'm so old...Wait, where did I put my glasses? And what are those young people doing on my lawn? Probably wearing dungarees and smoking lsd.
That feeling of love that we get when we see an innocent, vulnerable animal is the best part of who we are as a species. We should live our lives so that no animal, anywhere, would ever fear us. Protect the innocent, defend the vulnerable. #animalrights
Thank you for such an amazing day and night at @circlevfest . So many inspiring speakers and performers and #vegan food vendors and artists, but most importantly: you. A festival, and a movement, is nothing without you. So, thank you. Now let's go out and change the world. #animalrights#animalliberation pic @evelienh
My old pal @reggiewatts doing his soundcheck. I love all of the @circlevfest performers, but he is my favorite...and that includes me. Reggie is one of the greatest performers I've ever seen/heard/known.
Cows just want to run and play and hang out with other cows and live their lives. Nothing, and I repeat: nothing gives anyone the right to harm, kill, or in any way impinge upon an animals god given right to live its own life. #animalrights@boochaces
Dear Donald Trump,
Just FYI: it's hypocritical for sexual
predators to ridicule other
And you, sir, are a sexual predator.
We all do.
In your own words:
'Grab em by the pussy'
'I tried to fuck her'
'When you're a star you can do
So, shut up, you creepy old predator. @realdonaldtrump@gop#trump
I'm not a huge car person, but the soon to be released @teslamotors roadster is insane... 0-100 in 2 seconds. Or as @elonmusk said yesterday, "the point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars". The future ISN'T going to be oil. @leilanimunter
I started playing guitar when I was 9 years old, and I still love playing guitar. But what has made me love electronic music for decades is this: the ability to make sounds that don't exist anywhere else. I never understood people who said that electronic music is cold, as in my opinion electronic music can be nuanced and warm and beautiful.
