ulster.jpgIn what could turn out to be a great experiment in environmentally-responsible producing, a film studio and eco-village are set to built in the bottom of a quarry in Northern Ireland. Such a geographical setting isn’t meant as a containment should something go terribly wrong (an agrarian revolt, perhaps?); instead the location, called Magheramorne quarry, is idea because it has industrial, rural, woodland, coastal and harbour settings. It’s also apparently caught the eye of Tom Hanks, who is interested in filming a Sci-Fi movie there. From the article,

“Company director John Anderson said: ‘I can confirm that we have met with representatives of Mr Hanks and discussed the possibility of providing facilities for a new film.’ Bleak landscapes within the quarry site could prove ideal for the futuristic sci-fi movie envisaged by Tom Hanks’ film company. It would feature an underground city created after a catastrophic disaster strikes the world.”

I wouldn’t expect Meg Ryan to be in this one.

The World Wildlife Fund is working to establish this eco-village, dubbed a “One Planet Living Community” Based on information at this site, the location will favor people over cars (shocking!) and be surrounded by what appears to be a moat. Very cool. Hit the site for more information. We’ll keep you updated on Hank’s interest in the area.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
