So I woke up this morning, feed and walked the dog as usual but I changed my routine up a little. I finally picked up my Larrivee and started to play If I had a Rocket Launcher by Bruce Cockburn. I was trying to come up with different solo ideas and discovered a couple of new versions to incorporate with the standard solo. Now with that over my stomach started to grumble!
While eating breakfast I was reading the old Macleans Magazine and I came across this article called “Go Veg! Get Girls!”. It started off with how the vegan industry is attempting to change the old idea that being a vegan is not manly for most of us. Then I remembered something that happened to us a couple of years ago.
My wife and I didn’t eat meat for a couple of months because she was going through medical problems and meat was off the menu. We were vegans but not the militant kind, you all know what I’m talking about. With starting this new eating arrangement and actually liking it, I thought it wasn’t so bad at all and I didn’t know what all the fuss was about changing eating habits.
Then one day at work we had IBM give us a “Lunch and Learn” about server hardware and they had a caterer come over with a BBQ and served anything we wanted. After having some chicken or something, the next day I felt so horrible! It was like waking up the morning after New Years when you were still in your college/university days! I guess my system was changing and I sorta began to see why maybe some people thought that eating meat was bad for them.
Then came the part about this band called the “Vegan Vixens“. In my mind I thought, wow maybe this could be one of those indie bands with a really neat and unique sound! Then I saw this video.
Keep on Jammin’
