"The Cove" and "Food, Inc." up for Academy Awards! »
We reported that they were short-listed and they fucking made it! YES! Our heart belongs to The Cove but we reallllllly hope one of them wins. AND YES, we know the awards are totally ridiculous and the winners are usually just whomever the production companies pimped the most, but it’s still exciting. Pass the popcorn, bitches!

Apparently, Martha had a Vegetarian Thanksgiving special [thanks for the tip, Ed!] on her show today, with guests Jeremy Fox of Ubuntu, Jonathan Safran Foer [ed. some of the Vegansaurs are totally sitting in a tree with JSF—they even call him JSF like we are an issue of Tiger Beat from 1990] and Robert Kenner, the guy who made Food, Inc. We didn’t see the episode (because we can’t watch anything we didn’t illegally download WHO SAID THAT) but we think this is awesome news for veg consciousness penetrating the mainstream especially with regard to holiday traditions, and further, please make us all those recipes they look delicious kthx! Especially this one, the Celery Root, Persimmon, and Swiss Chard “Stuffing”. (The ones that aren’t already are easily veganized, and we think you the vegan food blog reader could probably figure out how.)
Anyway, the holiday foodstravaganza continues on Vegansaurus, and JSF and Food, Inc. are good things for the American consciousness. Also, I’m pretty into Martha. Did you ever hear her on Howard Stern talking about her time in jail? It was kind of amazing. She is badass actually. I love following her on the Twitter too; occasionally you catch her after a couple of Sauvignon Blancs and she kind of sounds like Laura.

Go on with your bad selves, animal documentaries! If you haven’t seen them, they’re both well worth it. We’re especially enamored with The Cove. Must see! And maybe if it wins an Oscar, some more fools will see it. Man, I wish we could vote instead of these special committee motherfuckers. WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THEM, PLEASE TELL ME. Oh yes, money and power. Got it.
