Happy Super Tuesday, everybody! While the frontrunning presidential candidates square off for this big 24-state battle, let’s take a moment to remember how we got here: Ladies and gentlemen, back by popular demand, it’s Broccoli Obama, Celery Clinton, Mitt Ramen-y, Mike Huckleberry, and Dijon McCain! This version’s nice and short, but you can check out the whole feature at http://www.peta.org/feat/greenhouse/index.asp.
The 2008 Sexiest Vegetarian Next Door contest is underway, and this year we’re doing things a bit differently. To spice things up a bit, we’ve pitted the nominees against each other in a bracket-style tournament, where the winner takes all. (“All,” in this case, being a free trip to Hawaii.) You can check out the smoking hot lineup of sexy vegetarian guys and gals here. Happy voting!
Deflocked, baby. Deflocked.

If you’ve ever felt like politicians are just a bunch of vegetable puppets, this video will be all the confirmation you need. This idea came into existence a few months ago when a meeting about something else entirely degenerated into a contest to see who could come up with the funniest vegetable-themed name for a presidential candidate. A joint project with our friends at Free Range Studios, Road to the Greenhouse brings Broccoli Obama, Celery Clinton, Dijon McCain, Fruity Giuliani and a whole cast of politicians to life to debate one of the most important issues facing our country today: Is it time we gave peas a chance?
This one has been a major undertaking, but I’m completely in love with the way it turned out. I hope you like it too.
Yup, today is my birthday. Because it’s my birthday today, I can do anything I want (at least, I’m pretty sure that’s the rule), which means that I will be closing out the day by gratuitously posting some videos I’ve made on this here blog. The first one is a music video directed by my good friend Joel Bartlett for a song I wrote about birthdays. If you watch closely, it can also be viewed as an instructional video for how to make a vegan birthday cake (hint: apple sauce instead of eggs).
This second video is a horror movie trailer for a documentary about my recent trip to Canada. The documentary itself has a cooking segment that will be helpful to vegetarians on a camping trip.
And this third video has nothing to do with anything. It features me and my long-suffering parents butchering a Modest Mouse song during my Christmas vacation this year. Hooray! And Happy Birthday, me!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
