G-Force, war, and capital August 10, 2009

G-Force is Disney’s latest misanthropomorphic movie about secret agent guinea pigs who are not only bipedal, but rational, English-speaking companion animals, bearing arms in protection of the nation just like the rest of us American mammals.

That is how Los starts out the latest post over at hudsonvalleyvegan.

The post covers a lot of topics, but a quick rundown:

  1. G-force will cause a lot of guinea pigs to be abandoned.
  2. The movie depends on misanthropomorphism (creating fictional similarities and ignoring real ones).
  3. Animal usage and war have been connected for a long time.

I found it a fantastic read, and it seemed to focus on a lot of things I had been thinking about lately.

This blog has been awarded an Excellent Blog Award by Elaine Vigneault (who sometimes I feel is a one-woman cheering squad for this blog, so thank you)!

excellent blog award

The award comes with the following stipulation:

By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, I have to award it to 10 more people whose blogs I find Excellent Award worthy. I can give it to as many people as I want, but I’ll award at least 10. Thank you out there for having such great blogs and being such great friends! You deserve this! If chosen, you agree to the same information above. If chosen, also feel free to award people who have already been awarded.

This is as bad as choosing people to pass on a survey meme to! Or worse, really. I’m going to cop out & say that all the blogs over there on the side, in our blogroll? They’re all Excellent Blogs, too. They’re all worth reading.

(I get a little frustrated sometimes with sites that have blogrolls a mile long, because I feel like they’re too hard to wade through… that’s why this one is thus far fairly short. So yeah, they really are all Excellent Blogs!)
