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.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
