It List: Wednesday 10/17/07

Vegan Soul Food Pot Luck with Kimya Dawson/Angelo Spencer/Jesse Gage/Sparlin, Jessels/Daniel Bass (715 Panhandle): K Records singer/songwriter and founding member of Moldy Peaches Kimya Dawson comes to Denton tonight with her husband Angelo Spencer as part of a small Texas tour. This thing gets started at 6pm with a vegan soul food pot luck and an early start time for the first set. If WSJR was runnin this folk shit, we'd serve ONLY meat at OUR pot luck. But thats probably one of the many reasons why we aren't runnin this folk shit.

Taxi Fare (Zubar): Nature keeps runnin this dancehall shit, and I'm hoping he'll play the Switch remix you can find on this Myspace page. Fucking addictive.

Film School/Red Monroe/Eulogies (The Cavern): Film School's sound seems to fall somewhere between Snow Patrol and Coldplay on one side and Catherine Wheel and Ride on the other. Lots of layers of reverb and nice melodies, etc., and all of it is pretty pleasant and well done, if more than a bit predictable at times. Openers Eulogies play that kind of music thats like, you know, that "indie rock" stuff? Yeah, I don't really know what to say about it either. It's not bad I suppose, but it's not very good either. Get it? And we WILL have that Red Monroe review very soon. Leave us alone, we're busy.

Peter and the Wolf/Matthew and the Arrogant Sea/Violent Squid (Rubber Gloves): Peter and the Wolf makes its 15th appearance in Denton in the past month. Violent Squid plays for what seems like the 15th time this month too, but guess what? Their shows are different every time, so it's always worth checking out. Dig?

So glad you mentioned Santogold. She is my favorite artist right now! I'm dying for her album to drop.

I think it'd be funny if you keep promising a Red Monroe review every week for the next few years and never post it. It could be what's referred to by the industry as a "running joke"!

This week's Joanna "piece" in the DO - more gay/lesbian talk, this time set at an Annie Lennox concert.

We get it - you're gay and have bad taste in music. Check.

Now write about something remotely interesting.

So, it was Kimya's idea to have the show early, seeing as how she's touring with her kid and kids have bedtime, etc.

Go ahead and come out early. Getting drunk at 6pm isn't the worst thing someone can do.?

Eddie Van Halen let his kid smoke and drink while on tour. I really dont see what the big deal is.

And yes, I do need alcohol to enjoy live music. There isnt one band alive ever I could sit through without worrying about beer. Im sorry but you are dreaming.

Yes, enjoy your Bovine Growth Hormone flavored meat product!

The beef industry's contributed only $600,000 in campaign contributions to the Republican Party so far... but the election's a year away! There's plenty of time to catch up to the oil and defense contractors.

when i actually put my nose up against cow meat. it smells like a cow. cooked unseasoned beef smells like stinky cow. no shit. i still eat it but i'm just say'n it ain't no lie it smells like cow stink. i support vegans. spiral diner fucking rules. i like that movie "Our Daily Bread".

Holy shit.

I don't know if I could sit through a movie like that. Not because I don't wanna go vegan, but because it looks too hard to watch.

But I guess the truth is hard to deal with.

real conversation i heard monday night.

person 1: hey, don't eat those peanuts. they have gelatin on them.

person 2: oh yuck! why is there gelatin in the peanuts?

person 3: maybe it helps the salt stick to the peanuts.

no real point. just sayin'.

Those "Our Daily Bread" clips were really disturbing. I guess my only fear in going vegan would be: where will I get the protein I need? Can you really get all the protein your body needs by eating only fruits, vegetables and legumes?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

absolutely logster! check out what has to say

"Protein: You don't need to eat foods from animals to have enough protein in your diet. Plant proteins alone can provide enough of the essential and non-essential amino acids, as long as sources of dietary protein are varied and caloric intake is high enough to meet energy needs.
# Whole grains, legumes, vegetables, seeds and nuts all contain both essential and non-essential amino acids. You don't need to consciously combine these foods ("complementary proteins") within a given meal.
# Soy protein has been shown to be equal to proteins of animal origin. It can be your sole protein source if you choose."

Everybody bags on "fake" meat like tofurky, but they are missing the point. It's not fake meat. It's a whole different food.

A delicious food that is way less harmful to you and the world.

how are they missing the point??

processed food is processed food

tofurkey is in the same family as hot dogs, and velveeta...

it allows vegitarians to feel just as empty as mcdonalds goers..
