I just wrote a post about a TV show and here’s one more. I’m excited about Sweet Avenger (despite my retching at the concept of a “docusoap”), but I can’t help thinking Martha Stewart’s “The Vegan Show” episode tomorrow is gonna be a losing combination of offensively stoopid and dull. I hope I’m wrong.
Twitter’s Biz Stone seems like a good guy, and I have certainly heard nice things about Farm Sanctuary’s Gene Bauer, but when your other selling points are sharing recipes in 140 characters or less, shots of raw kale and dry black lentils, “veganist” Kathy Freston (I guess I’m glad she came up with a word for being pro-vegan but too lazy to be vegan), and glitter art … well, the glitter art starts to sound like pretty darn great television.
And who wants to wager on the likelihood that non-food related aspects of veganism will be discussed? I expect to hear a lot about weight-loss and nothing about leather.
