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

    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?

  2. 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.)

    This is the sixth blog post in the series documenting the February to March 2008 leg of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling Antarctic campaign. Previous posts in the series are here. The following post was an email I sent 20 days into the voyage. The next update will come Friday, July 18th.

    We’ve been keeping up with the Nisshin Maru for a few days now. Yesterday, we were surrounded by a HUGE pod of dolphins, minke whales, pilot whales, and giant humpback whales, all swimming together! They swam alongside our boat to say hello, and we circled around them to keep them safe from the whaling factory ship. There were whales from horizon to horizon.

    We just engaged the factory ship just now. As long as we’re on their tail,
    they can’t do any more whaling. They had a group of soldiers on deck and ready for the engagement, but they’re in Australian waters breaking Australian law so what can they do? Shoot a boat full of Australians to prove they rule Australian territory?

    Yesterday, that Japanese military ship (the Fukuyoshi Maru No. 68) came within a mile of our tail, so we turned and attacked them head on again, and they flinched and turned to avoid us. Perhaps in hindsight it was dangerous, but at the time the other officer on the bridge and I were both American so we love to do cowboy crap like that. It worked out for the best anyway, since then the Fukuyoshi kept its distance. And since it stayed so far away from us, we managed to shake it off our tail completely using a tactic the Millennium Falcon used to evade the Star Destroyer fleet in The Empire Strikes Back, which I haven’t gotten tired of telling everyone on the bridge. They’ve been quoting Star Wars and Star Trek ever since, which I’m very proud of.
