Listen: Smothered Beets of Malibu Shark Attack, DeQn Sue, Baby Baby and John Steen

Smothered beets in a siki siki salad. Sounds best like this: Rocky O’Reilly and Tribe One are the two masterminds behind indie rap group Malibu Shark Attack. Both of them have come from previous acts, probably the reason that their debut album starts off with the lines “I hate it when my favourite bands go on indefinite hiatus and later announce a new side project. […]


Cook: Beet, Pear and Avocado Salad with Onion Vinaigrette

After months and months of nothing but a liquid/mashy diet, the Z-Bot has finally started eating real human food. I’m talking tofu, rice, yogurt, fruits and veggies. This really changes things. Now when I settle in for a bit of cooking, I no longer need to prepare two completely different dishes. Instead, I can make one dish and tweak it to meet the tastes of […]


Disappearing Acts: Mac and Cheese and See Emily Play

Man it’s been a rough month and a half. Who would’ve of thought vegan bloggers could be so deceiving. I don’t think they are doing it on purpose, they just want to get theres. If that means putting something out into the blogosphere that is a bit lackluster, well so be it. Hell, I probably have done it a few times myself. I just feel […]


Listen: Dramatic Tunes from Manou, Work Drugs, Hailer and Siren

Grab a bunch of your chickpea pals, cover yourself in cream, and turn on a bit of this: Manou’s first track, Sadie, was all about her friend looking for love. It was easy as she was on the outside looking in. Her second single “Loving You” was much more personal. It is the story of her going through her very first heartbreak. Maybe it is […]


Cook: Tangy Chickpeas Sandwich with Kale Slaw

We went to Kaleisia Tea Lounge this weekend and I branched out and tried something new. I wasn’t making a statement about how unpredictable I can be or anything, I was just being a cheap ass and selected a tea from the tea of the month list (which comes with a slight discount). Most of the time my tea of choice is fruit based. This […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With a Bloody Beet Burger?

There are some pretty fabulous vegan burgers out there. Like this crunchy eggplant monster or this stuffed tempeh version. Some of these burgers have a very convincing meaty texture that can almost stand toe-to-toe with their carcassy brethren. Others have a taste that can fool even the most hardcore meat eater. A few even have the outside appearance (you know the look, the one that fools you into thinking […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Beth Thornley’s New EP?

Magnolia and Gabrielle. Britney Spears in Spring Breakers. Pixies in Fight Club. Tom Petty in Jerry Maguire. Every once in a while a film director perfectly pairs a song with the scene that is playing out before your eyes. It is such a flawless union that song and clip cease to exist separately. They become forever intertwined, you can’t have one without the other. A […]


Click: Dahmer Goes Vegan, Laundromat Romances, A Brighter Smell of Teen Spirit and Other Attention Grabbers from This Past Week

I think I loved the f**k out of this week. Most of it is due to: Recipes: Toasted Almond Hazelnut Butter from the Healthy Foodie Chickpea Tofu from My New Roots Fudgy Beetroot Chocolate Cake with Pink Frosting from One Green Planet Baked Vegan Mac and Cheese Casserole from Go Dairy Free Tampa Happenings: 22nd Annual Pesto Festo announced for May 4th at 5PM. Tickets […]


Listen: Turn to Crime With A Naked Pistol in an AWOLNATION

When you find yourself straight out of onions and you turn to disguising cabbage as such, turn on a bit of this: Rising from the wreckage of his former band, the Detroit styled garage pop trio Awesome Color, Derek Stanton has taken his talents to the world of crime. Not literal crime. He’s not selling drugs to school children or robbing televisions from the local pawn shop and […]
