Jeff Mangum is VEGAN!? And he’s on TOUR!? Get a rope!  »

You know, so we can all tie him up and marry him. The genius man-boy behind every hip-and-cool person’s favorite band Neutral Milk Hotel* is on tour, which is something he hardly ever does. Except for the animals BECAUSE HE’S AN AWESOME VEGAN. Of course he is! Look at him cuddle that chicken! I can’t wait for him to perform at our wedding when I marry him!

Because I think we should all get to marry him. I think he’ll love that because he’s not an intensely private person, or anything. You can’t escape love, Jeff. Especially when it clubs you on the head and keeps you hostage in an XL dog crate in the basement. 

So, let’s all go see him! Tickets are on pre-sale now but the password is “layover” so SEE YOU THERE.

Finally, no disrespect, but I totally think Jim Carrey could play him in his biopic. Okay, I guess that was a little disrespect.

*who isn’t Azealia Banks. Lick those gums, lady! Really get in there! Also, love when she does the fake stairs thing. Also, don’t watch this if you hate swears because SHE LOVES SWEARS.

Gift for the TMZ watcher in your life: celebrity PETA stamps!  »

I know this is totally going to catch you by surprise…

…celebrity PETA stamps! Famous vegetarians! How many of them are vegan? Are you interested in buying these ICONIC* postage stamps?

They are available for purchase, limited time only, here — if not for yourself, maybe me the celeb whore in your life?

Until next time…


*I must just be jealous that I’m not famous enough to be featured on a postage stamp. PETA! I’m here and I’m waiting for you to take notice.

Paul Shapiro Presents: Animal News You Can Use!  »

It’s time for the next installment of Paul Shapiro's Animal News You Can Use! Take it away, Paul!

I’ve got an op-ed in Capital Press (an ag trade publication) about why it might be a good idea to let farm animals turn around. Yep, this is still a debate.

AP has a good article about our work in California. Take-away line: “’Of all the animal organizations, HSUS has the money and the political savvy to be problematic for my clients going forward,’ said Michael Boccadoro, a poultry industry lobbyist. ‘They are on another level.’”

In the shocker of the year, Smithfield is refusing to give HSUS details about its plans to stop using gestation crates to confine breeding pigs.

Do you like getting massages? So do fish. Pretty cool. Also cool (and feels better than a massage): This national AP story about vegan celebrities and billionaires.

Finally, if you live near Grand Rapids, I hope to see you in a few days!

P.S. Video of the week: Piglets Gone Wild, courtesy of my good friends at Animal Place.

Okay, this is kind-of off topic but it’s also the greatest so I had to share! Questlove (from the Roots and drumming on everything and also producing a lot of things and He of the Best Hair Ever) has a website where he chronicles what he thinks about all the different celebrities he meets. It’s hilarious Behind the Music shit and I learned so much about many different famous people! Which is very important, because they are our Gods. All the stories are the best, but I especially love the one about Erykah Badu (excerpted above! I didn’t just start talking in gibberish!), who is apparently the sexiest woman alive and QUESTLOVE DRUM ROLL PLEASE: vegan! It appears Ms. Badu and myself have a few things in common. So hot. Anywayz, Questlove talks about what recording an album with Badu is like, and lists things like saatan (which is totally how seitan should be spelled) and almond milk! Neato!
Now, read them all and tell me your favorites. Will Smith is in second place for me but that’s because I’d pretty much kill all of you to get to spend ten minutes within the gates of his palace. Actually, no, I wouldn’t kill you, but I bet Bobby Trendy would. So luxurious!

Vegan weirdo Weird Al is doing a Q&A at Cobb’s Comedy Club on Saturday, Jan. 23. If you go, please ask him about being vegan. Also, kinda curious about the length of his schlong. I’m actually not sure why since I’m not attracted to him. I’m just pretty sure it’s about three feet long and shaped like a curlicue. HE’S JUST SO WEIRD! Also, I’m really sorry I typed all that.
Also: GREAT. Now I’m gonna be singing “If you see me coming, you better give me space! If I tell you that I’m hungry, THEN WON’T YOU FEED MY FACE! BECAUSE I’M FAT! SHAMAL!”
Finally, I know I spent this whole post making fun of him but I really do love Weird Al and let’s face it, there’s nothing WEIRD about loving animals. You go on, sir.
ALL FUCKING DAY.
