The Taint and lasagna

So, what to you make for a super gore-fest movie watching party? A lasagna in a red sauce, of course.

No recipe for the lasagna. I just sort of winged it. Made a red sauce with some sausage in it. Added some spinach. Vegan ricotta, Daiya.

What was this gore-fest? The Taint! And it isn’t the taint you’re thinking of, either. Do not watch this trailer if you have a problem with extreme gore, nudity, etc.

It was ridiculous and over the top in so many ways. There’s even a plot! And you can download the damn thing for $5. Best watched with a group of people eating something red and gooey.

Grandma’s Boy brunch potluck

It somehow came out at one gathering or another that I’d never seen Grandma’s Boy. And just like that, a Grandma’s Boy potluck was planned. Brunch and a movie. Okay, it wasn’t the worst thing ever, and I did laugh a few times, but mostly it was underwhelming. But now I’ve seen it and can stop getting harassed about it.

Brunch was awesome though:

Scramble on top of grits, a cheezy biscuit, raw garlicky kale, stuffed crescent rolls and coffee cake.

Free screening of Fowl Play March 5th

fowl play movieThe good folks at Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe have arranged a free screening of the documentary Fowl Play at Wonderroot. The screening is Friday, March 5th at 8pm. Oh, and tasty vegan refreshments will be provided by Cosmo’s and Dough Bakery.

Okay, we know. These things are hard to watch. But the more information you have, the easier it is to explain your position when you get those people that ask “why don’t you eat eggs?” Do you have a vegetarian friend that needs a little more convincing to give up eggs? Bring ’em! You aren’t vegan but wonder why we are? Come on down!

Fowl Play is a documentary from Mercy For Animals that takes viewers on an unforgettable journey behind the closed doors of some of the country’s largest egg production facilities and graphically illustrates the heartbreaking plight of laying hens condemned to lives crowded inside file-drawer sized cages.

Through touching interviews with animal rescuers, undercover investigators, veterinarians, and animal behaviorists, we hear powerful stories motivated by kindness and courage from the dedicated individuals who are fighting to save the modern day hen- perhaps the most abused and exploited animal on earth.

Connecting the dots between consumer demand for meat, dairy and eggs and the perpetuation of animal abuse, Fowl Play leaves viewers with a groundbreaking message of personal responsibility and the potential each of us holds to change the world- one meal at a time.
