Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Published by PETA.

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!
