Keep shoes for Japan! »
I got this in an email from Keep today. Pretty cool! “A portion from every sale of our Japanese Thatch collection will be donated to Japanese Disaster Relief efforts.” There’s no more info on their site about it, at least none I can find, so I don’t know the percentage they’re donating or anything but every little bit helps! Plus VEGAN SNEAKERS HOLLER AT ME.
Now if only they had some kind of Haitian thatch shoe! Of course you don’t need to buy vegan shoes to donate money to Haiti, or Japan for that matter, but it would definitely be a bonus! Vegan shoes make everything better. It’s nature’s way!
Save the date: May 10 NYC fundraiser for Japan »
Hey everybody, guess what! There is going to be a benefit for Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support and Americares! But you haven’t heard the best part: I’m going to DJ! Huzzah! So now you HAVE to go.
I think I’m just spinning between bands and announcements so, essentially, I’m TOP BILLING. But don’t worry, I’m going to be so good, everybody will die. But not before eating delicious vegan food from V-Spot, Gonepie and more!
Here’s the skinny:
Tuesday, May 10, from 7 to 11:30 p.m.
Southpaw, 125 5th Ave.
It’s $15 and 18 and over. Yay, kids! You can hang! The event has a Facebook page and you can buy advance tickets on Southpaw’s website. Southpaw kind of rules so this should be fun! It’s only a few blocks from me so you might see me wheeling my records over. Say hi!
If you want a preview of my skillz, you can check out and download (for free!) a few of my mixes on Last.fm.

In case you missed it, New Jersey vegan cupcake shop Sweet Avenue is taking the world by storm with their Charlie Sheen cupcakes! It’s basically front page news. According to their twitter, they just sold a box to Geraldo. GERALDO.
Hmm, do you think it’s safe to say Charlie Sheen got more attention than the earthquake in Japan will get? Oh, Hollywood, your siren song enraptures us. But wait! All is not lost! Sweet Avenue is donating money to the Red Cross for every red velvet cupcake they sell. Yay! And I can tell you from experience, their red velvet cupcakes are the jam.
In other news: Geraldo is still alive.
