Vegans Cause 36% of America’s Self-Righteousness

According to a 2000 national Zogby poll sponsored by the Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG), an overwhelming 0.9% of America’s population describes themselves as vegan (not eating meat, poultry, fish, other seafood, dairy, eggs or honey).

According to David Barton Harris’ observations, this gargantuan subset of the populous is responsible for an even more staggering 36% of America’s Self-Righteousness. (not pictured: viewers of The 700 Club)

Did this air?  I think the weather update in the lower left corner means it did.

These Days

I was half-time channel surfing during one of Sunday’s March Madness games when I landed on Comedy Central’s airing of The Royal Tenenbaums.

I arrived just in time to see this:

Arguably, this is the best scene in the movie. Slo-mo Paltrow to Nico. These Days.

I wanted to play it, and I did, thanks to Ken Storoschuk and his transcription, which is living on a number of guitar tab sites. I found it at

The next morning I recorded what I had learned:
These Days (take 01)
And then again the morning after that:
These Days (take 02)
Almost a month later:
These Days (take 03 – 1st Verse Demo)

I Call You

I Call You

I call you surgeon, cause I put my heart in your hands,
And like a surgeon, sometimes you have to cut a heart,
I call you water, cause you’re running right through my hands,
And I call you daughter, cause you lie about where you’ve been.
