  1. Oh Ellen, you went vegan, and I was so proud. So how can you shill for a company that tests on animals?

    While the same atrocities go on day after day in animal testing labs, this year World Week for Animals in Laboratories, April 18-26, seems just a little less bleak. Why?

    Today is the final day of voting in the Ideas for Change in America competition, one of those massive online voting thingies. The top ten ideas will be “presented to the Obama administration.” This may not actually mean much (if I mail a letter to the White House, I’m presenting an idea), but the site is generating a lot of attention and discussion. Whether we can directly influence Obama’s agenda or not, wouldn’t it be nice to get some pro-animal items to win this contest?

    You can vote for all four of these (not just one):

    Update: Voting is now closed.

  3. We blogged it a few weeks ago, but this is worth another mention. If you are anywhere near New York City, and you care at all about animal issues, you are a fool and a loser if you don’t visit Banksy’s “Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill” at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street.

    The shop touches on humans’ exploitation of animals for food, chemical and behavioral testing, fur, and entertainment. I’ve never been a big fan of Banksy’s drawing/stencil work, but this show is just great, conceptually technologically, and aesthetically. It’s subversive and clever, sure, but also quite touching and unnerving.

    It’s great how it’s just a store-front. I suspect most visitors stumbled upon the place, rather than seeking it out. Even if you don’t think you like or understand fine art, you’ll be OK here. It’s just a mock store, with animatronics, just like at Disneyland.

    The show closes on October 31st, Halloween. The price and the hours are friendly–free admission, open 10am-midnight. Go!

    (There’s lots more there than what’s in the video.)

    Guerrilla artist Banksy has opened his first official exhibition in New York yesterday. “Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill” is at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street. The fake pet shop he’s created aims to question “our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming.”

    The BBC has more photos and full info and video is available from Wooster Collective. Finally, an art exhibit that I care enough to go see. Take that Damien Hirst, you sick bastard.

    I’ll post a full report after I pay a visit to the exhibit, which runs until October 31st and is open daily from 10am until midnight.
