Does anyone watch Charlie Jade? *crickets* *tumbleweed* Is it worth watching?
I watched Rise: Blood Hunter (hahaha) last night, the vampire movie with Lucy Liu in it. It was actually surprisingly good in terms of visuals and just having a good cast, but overall the plot was pretty boring.
Anyway, there's a scene where one of the female vampires seduces a sailor in a club, and and and the sailor is... Matt Saracen from Friday Night Lights. In full sailor gear. He looked like a Japanese schoolgirl. *siiiiigh* :)
I also watched the episode of 30 Days on animal rights. I wasn't really surprised by anything because I already knew about all the horrible conditions on factory farms (de-beaking chickens, cows developing sores on their udders, and also cows being force fed corn and developing ulcers because they can't digest corn all that well and being pumped full of antibiotics to deal with the problem), and I knew about calves being stuck in boxes where they can't move, but I would still eat veal like... once every 6 months or so. After actually seeing it though, I think that's it for me.
I have no problems with killing animals for food, but not under those conditions. I don't eat chicken all that much, and stick to organic chicken whenever I do. I only buy beef from naturally raised cows and try to get that at restaurants (kind of lucky that it's widely available in the Bay Area). As far as dairy goes, I already buy organic or hormone-free milk, but I'll probably switch to cage-free eggs from now on. This is mostly out of concern for my own health, rather than concern for the chickens. :P
