Something fun for all you mommies & daddies out there [21 May 2009|10:10am]
Starting Friday, May 22, Disney is launching a nationwide Train Tour themed to our spectacular new holiday movie—Disney’s A Christmas Carol—which will be released in 3D theatres November 6.

From May 22–25 at Union Station in Los Angeles, guests can be the first to experience four custom designed train cars full of behind-the-scenes attractions, entertaining demonstrations and fun activities.

And, be the first to see exclusive 3D clips from the movie and behind the scenes footage in a state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3D™ Theatre being constructed just for the Train Tour. And it’s all totally FREE!

The tour will make 40 stops across the country spanning over 36 states and it all begins here in Los Angeles!
We know you are going to have a great time. Please feel free to share the information about all of our stops with your friends and family across the country. As they say, the more the merrier!

Disney’s A Christmas Carol is a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis. It captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking, performance-capture 3D motion picture event.
Ebeneezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begins the holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (Gary Oldman) and his cheery nephew (Colin Firth).
Through the magic of performance-capture technology, Jim Carrey tackles
seven roles, including Scrooge and all of the Christmas spirits.

We hope to see you joining in the fun as Christmas comes early this year to Union Station with carolers and fun activities for the entire family! It all begins at 9:00 am on May 22. No reservations are necessary to experience the tour.
The tour will be open on May 22–24 from 9:00am–9:00pm and May 25 from
10:00am–6:00pm. Please visit www.ChristmasCarolTrainTour.com for more information.
We value you as a guest of the El Capitan Theatre and we’re happy to be able to let you know about this special Disney experience in Los Angeles for a limited time.

If you have questions or need further
info, call us at (818) 845-3110.

Downed Cows - Please sign by September 26th [22 Sep 2008|11:54am]
As a result of HSUS's investigation at the Hallmark/Westland slaughter plant, followed by the largest ever meat recall in U.S. history, the USDA is finally considering closing a loophole in federal slaughter regulations that hurts downed cattle. If USDA's proposal moves forward, cattle who are too sick or injured even to stand or walk will no longer be slaughtered for human food, so there will be no incentive to drag them with chains, shove them by forklift, shock them, blast them with high-pressure water hoses to simulate drowning, or otherwise torment downed cattle to try to get them on their feet.

Please speak up for these crippled animals, now! Submit your comments to the USDA by September 26, 2008, to let the agency know that the public will not tolerate the cruel treatment of animals who cannot even stand or walk.

I have no words for this [17 Sep 2008|10:01am]
WASHINGTON (AP) -- An undercover video taken at an Iowa pig farm shows workers hitting sows with metal rods, slamming piglets on a concrete floor and bragging about jamming rods up into sows' hindquarters.

The pork industry and a Hormel spokesperson say animal abuse is unacceptable and not the norm.

On the video, obtained by The Associated Press, a supervisor tells an undercover investigator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that when he gets angry or a sow won't move, "I grab one of these rods and jam it in her [anus]."

The farm outside Bayard, Iowa, about 60 miles west of Des Moines, is a supplier to Hormel Foods of Austin, Minnesota. PETA wants to use the results of the investigation to pressure Hormel, the maker of Spam and other food products, to demand that its suppliers ensure humane treatment of pigs.

Hormel spokeswoman Julie Henderson Craven on Tuesday called the abuses "completely unacceptable."

The animal rights group also planned to send the video to the sheriff in Greene County, Iowa, seeking prosecution of 18 people on animal cruelty violations. According to PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich, the video shows eight people directly abusing animals.

"Abuse on factory farms is the absolute norm, not the exception, and anyone eating factory-farmed meat is paying to support it," Friedrich said.

After getting a whistleblower complaint from someone inside the farm, PETA sent two undercover investigators to be hired at the farm and document its practices -- one from June 10 to September 8, and the other from July 23 to September 11.

At one point on the video, an employee shouts to an investigator, "Hurt 'em! There's nobody works for PETA out here. You know who PETA is?"

The undercover PETA investigator replies that he's heard of the group.

"I hate them. These [expletives] deserve to be hurt. Hurt, I say!," the employee yells as he hits a sow with a metal rod. "Hurt! Hurt! Hurt! Hurt! ... Take out your frustrations on 'em." He encourages the investigator to pretend that one of the pigs scared off a voluptuous and willing 17- or 18-year-old girl, and then beat the pig for it.

Records at the Greene County Assessor's Office show the property was owned by Natural Pork Production II LLP of Iowa until August 18, and then was transferred to MowMar LLP of Fairmont, Minnesota.

Lynn Becker, an owner of MowMar, called the abuses on the video "completely intolerable, reprehensible. We condemn these types of acts. If any animals were abused in the brief time we've owned the farm, if we still employ these people, any attempt will be made to investigate and initiate corrective action immediately."

Becker said his company provided animal welfare training to the staff when it took over the farm.

Natural Pork Production II referred questions to AMVC Management Services, which managed the farm under its ownership. Mark Jones, AMVC's network manager, said the video showed "unacceptable practices" and that his company is working with the new ownership to investigate.

Craven, the Hormel spokeswoman, said the farm became a Hormel supplier only after the change in ownership, and that MowMar "shares our commitment to animal welfare and humane handling."

"We expect all current suppliers to adhere to the proper animal handling standards from day one and continue to do so throughout our relationship. We are working with our supplier to ensure this activity is no longer taking place," Hormel said in a statement on its Web site.

Craven said it was her understanding that the abuses took place before the change in ownership. But PETA's Friedrich said the abuses continued, and that the new manager abused animals by shocking and kicking pigs.

Dr. Jennifer Greiner, a veterinarian and director of science and technology at the National Pork Producers Council, said the industry condemns "willful abuse" of pigs and that the video depicts acts that are not acceptable.

"Our industry is committed to handling pigs humanely," she said. "My industry is full of good people."

At one point in the video, workers are shown slamming piglets on the ground, a practice designed to instantly kill those baby pigs that aren't healthy enough. But on the video, the piglets are not killed instantly, and in a bloodied pile, some piglets can be seen wiggling vainly. The video also shows piglets being castrated, and having their tails cut off, without anesthesia.

Temple Grandin, a leading animal welfare expert who serves as a consultant to the livestock industry, said that while those are standard industry practices, the treatment of the sows on the video was far from it.

"This is atrocious animal abuse," Grandin said after PETA sent her the video. But she disagreed with PETA's contention that it was widespread in the industry.

"I've been on many good farms, and the pigs are handled gently," she said. "This was blatant, deliberate animal cruelty. These people are sick. They need to be prosecuted. There are certain people that enjoy hurting animals and they should not be working with them -- period."

One of the PETA investigators, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect his ability to do further undercover operations, said there was a culture of violence on the farm, and working there was an emotionally and physically exhausting experience that typically involved working 12-hour shifts and walking 15 miles a day.

"So many times, it took all of my willpower not to step up and do something," he said, adding that he also saw the supervisor shove a cane into a sow's vagina. "I was just shocked. What do you say to that?"

Sometimes I just don't fucking understand the human race [19 Aug 2008|09:26am]
[ mood | WTF assholes?!? ]

Help save Chico, the lone meerkat @ the L.A. Zoo

from savechico@yahoo.com


Chico is a meerkat,
an alone little meerkat
at the Los Angeles Zoo.

We believe the zoo
management has made
the decision to abandon
Chico, to ignore him
until he dies.

The LA Zoo had 8 meerkats just 2 years ago. They were
not careful in monitoring the meerkats, their underground
burrow collapsed in a heavy rain, an effective rescue effort
was not attempted, and 6 died. That ended this beautiful
attraction at the zoo, with just 2 left.

A year later, one of the 2 little remaining meerkats died.
Died curled up in his food bowl, again ignored by the
keepers. It took almost an hour for concerned visitors to
convince a zoo employee to remove the dead body.

Only Chico is left now. Alone. Abandoned by the zoo.
Meerkats cannot survive alone in their native African
Kalahari Desert. Alone and caged in a zoo in the midst
of other animals, they are constantly in fear and stressed.

Chico has, in effect, been abandoned by the zoo, alone,
fed principally dog food, not permitted even the
companionship of other species that are compatible with
meerkats. Not permitted any of the activities employed
routinely at other zoo to stimulate their meerkats. (Zoos
call it enrichment, I call it entertainment, meerkats love it..)

In the wild, meerkats dig in the desert for a diet of insects
and worms -- all protein. A high carbohydrate diet such
as dog food is harmful for meerkats, in effect a poison.

This poor little meerkat is an inconvenient broadblock
in the expansion plan of the zoo. The zoo received a
huge windfall of building funds when the new mayor was
elected. They plan a grand new meerkat enclosure, so
the sooner Chico dies, the better for the zoo. But he is
not that old, if fed a healthy diet and has companions, he
can live another 5 years.

Many of us have offered to pay for the cost of moving
Chico to another zoo. The zoo sees no reason to go
to this trouble, so they have refused.

This zoo does respond to public pressure. Slowly, but
they do. They have had other animals in trouble that they
refused to help, such as Ruby the elephant, but strong
pressure forced the zoo to release her to a sanctuary.

PLEASE HELP CHICO.

SEE OUR ONLINE PETITION. IF YOU AGREE,
PLEASE SIGN AND ASK YOUR FRIENDS TO
SIGN ONLY. GO TO
www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Help-Chico-live-like-a-meerkat-should

ONLY PUBLIC PRESSURE IS GOING TO SAVE CHICO.

We have been begging the zoo to help Chico, at least
to feed him better, for 7 months. The zoo turns us over
to their PR man who spouts the party line "All animals
at the Los Angeles Zoo receive excellent care."

Save Chico!

Please ask your friends to sign the petition. It will help him.

Here are drawings and letters that have been sent to
Chico, in care of the Chico Project (address in the petition):

Thank you. Save Chico!

This makes me happy [20 May 2008|04:45pm]
[ mood | It's about effin time! ]

This morning, the USDA announced that it will implement a complete ban on slaughter for human consumption of cattle unable to stand and walk unassisted. The decision comes after The Humane Society of the United States documented horrible abuses of downed cows in a series of undercover videos.

For far too long, sick and crippled animals have been allowed into the food supply, subjecting them to needless torment and putting consumers at risk.

Thanks in part to many thousands of animal advocates who emailed and called public officials about the scandalous mistreatment of these animals, the USDA is moving to close the downer loophole. We are calling on the agency to expedite the process and ban the slaughtering of downers without delay.

Once the loophole is closed, we'll push for additional reforms. Stronger federal legislation is needed to ensure humane euthanasia of downers and protect all farm animals from this kind of abuse.

SEX [15 Mar 2006|03:49pm]
[ mood | orgasmic and gay ]

I read this article in National Geographic while sitting in the waiting room at my vet's a couple of weeks ago. It was mostly about love, but there was also a good deal about sex. Basically the article implied that women will only fall in love with a man [or woman] that can make them cum. I pasted an excerpt below:

"A woman unconsciously uses orgasms as a way of deciding whether or not a man is good for her. If he's impatient and rough, and she doesn't have the orgasm, she may instinctively feel he's less likely to be a good husband and father. Scientists think the fickle female orgasm may have evolved to help women distinguish Mr. Right from Mr. Wrong."


So, I'm curious what everyone else thinks. Has anyone ever fallen in love with someone who could NOT make them orgasm?

Not I said the fly.

***EDIT***
I'd also like to hear from guys who've been in love with girls who never got off during sex.
