#fbf the first time I experienced Mardi Gras was in 2007 while on tour with TFT. I was simultaneously disgusted and intrigued. My favorite part of the whole event is the religious protesters in the middle of it. A rare pic of me with just a mustache. Also, Matt Wixson.

imagine a video game where you create a hero whose destiny is to save everyone, but throughout the game you start making harder and more questionable decisions, and the game gets darker and darker. and in the end you’re just standing there, clutching the controller and finally realizing you were playing the villain all along

Anonymous asked: how do you feel about vegans who will educate others about whats really in their fast food, but still eat at taco bell, just ordering vegan options? i don't know much about it but it seems to me that someone who eats vegan would not want to be spending their money at a company that encourages the death of animals. just curious on what your opinion is here
I totally get that mentality and to anyone who can completely follow through with it, more power to them. But to me if you follow that to it’s logical conclusion that means you shouldn’t even purchase food from a grocery store because they also profit (and push) massively from animal exploitation. To me that doesn’t seem like a realistic vision of veganism to be promoting at the moment. If you were to tell someone who is your average meat eater (that probably eats fast food a few times a week) that in order to really be vegan they also need to boycott all fast food and only eat at all vegan restaurants, I doubt many would consider it. But if you tell someone they can eat at the same places they already do, just get a different food item when you get there, then that seems like something way more people would be willing to do. While I do feel conflicted on the matter, I think it’s overall better for the animals to promote (or at least not condemn) the fact that you can get vegan food from fast food places. Also as someone who has spent their fair share of time in a tour van, as a vegan, many times I’ve been stuck at 2 AM in the middle of nowhere and taco bell as been a life saver. I haven’t had taco bell in a long time, but mostly because I don’t feel that great after eating it.
Everyone will boycott PETA and disregard anything they say because of their sexist and misogynistic ads but y’all still have no problem buying alcohol from companies that have vast histories of doing the same now I wonder why that is.
Just kidding I know why.How has this slipped my mind until now?

Collards sautéed in veggie broth, liquid smoke and Tony’s, mashed sweet potato with a little agave and cinnamon and some Sol Tofu Ribs (basically just extra firm tofu in long strips and BBQ sauce). Not the prettiest picture but definitely the tastiest thing I’ve made in this truck so far. All made in a rice cooker with the exception of the tofu heated up in the microwave. #vegan
Wondering what it’s like to receive a package from us? Ashley aka The Vegan Peach gave a wonderful review of everything we sent her when she ordered our Grab Bag shirt. Check it out in the video above.

Finally reading Veganomics, getting into some interesting territory…
Trapped in a motel room selfie. Alabama is shut the fuck down right now. Huge accidents and most highways are closed. Almost no businesses are open. Thankful to be a warm room with food.
