The Evangenitals are closing out Indie 103.1's Summer Block Party at Universal Citywalk on September 1st. Sign of the apocalypse, or did the world just get a little more awesome for Genitals worldwide?

You be the judge:

I just saw the 11th Hour yesterday and it was incredible. The only disappointing thing, for me, is that neither The 11th Hour nor An Inconvenient Truth really got into the tremendous impact that factory farming has on the environment, deforestation, etc.

There are allusions made to it visually, but no one in these films ever TALKS about the connection between the massive meat consumption in the US, the degraded conditions of the animals, chemicals that go into the food and the land/air, and the tremendous waste, both in the land being used to grow grain for animals that feed the few, whereas the farming land could be used to feed the many, and in the "means of production" of the meat industry itself.

I wish that this connection would be made more apparent in these environment call-to-action films because, as expressed in John Robbin's Diet for a New America, if folks would just reduce their meat intake (thereby reducing meat production) by a mere 10% the impact on world hunger would be enormous... not to mention what the global effects would be if Veganism became as present and acceptable in the popular consciousness as Recycling.

All that aside... I highly recommend seeing the film. It was moving, intense, beautiful, disturbing, yet optimistic. Let me know what you think of it.

I just got home from the El Cid show and I've already uploaded the photos for your viewing pleasure!

It was a great, short, barn-burner set. I wore my long-sleeved cowboy shirt and paid the price by getting some sweaty pits from all my running about.

I figure it proves I was working hard. :-)

Thanks to those of you who came out to the show, played along, and for all the hooting and hollering.

If you missed it, this photo set (taken by Patrick Ian Moore) actually gives a pretty good idea of just what went on over there.

Hope to see you all next weekend at the Old Towne Pub. Until then, please enjoy, comment on, spread around all these Evangenitals pics that I've been obsessively uploading onto Flickr.

Proud Meat Eater?

Please watch this (all the way through, no cheating!) and then enjoy your carne asada tacos:

Meet Your Meat!

There's a scene at the end that is priceless.

I finally posted the wild and wonderful photos from The 1 Second Film's "Road to Oprah" fundraiser that took place at Mr T's Bowl in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Vermouth, Cousin Junebug, Ollin, 8 Bit, and the Evangenitals all threw down the music and mayhem at this awesome event... and if you watch the slideshow in fast motion while listening to Gasoline, it almost feels like you're at an Evangenitals show!

Thanks to Patrick Ian Moore for taking all the pictures. :-)

1 Second Film Drives 10,000 miles to ask Oprah for $1

Absurdly awesome one-second film that allows anyone to be a producer for $1 and donates the profits to charity. They are gearing up to drive a school bus 10,000 miles across America to ask Oprah for $1. Kiefer Sutherland and Stephen Colbert already donated. What will Oprah do?
