The Vegan Transformation – Michael Lanfield of TARVE interview

I’ve started a new project called The Vegan Transformation.

People all over the world are realizing the many benefits of a compassionate vegan diet. I’ll be bringing you video interviews of people telling their stories of how becoming a vegan transformed their lives. Here you will find inspiration, knowledge, and hope for The Vegan Transformation on Earth.

“Me, the Mob, and the Music” book win! Support community radio CIUT!

Here is my video update, and I’m talking about the book “Me, the Mob, and the Music” by Tommy James that I won in a contest from the radio show Vinyl from the CIUT Crypt!

Tommy James and The Shondells were one of the biggest groups of the 1960’s and their music is used today in many films and TV shows. Famous for such hits as “Mony Mony” and “Crimson and Clover,” Tommy James remains an active force in music today, and is an inspiration of all that was good about the Sixties. “Crimson and Clover” is one of my favourite songs of all time, and it still gives me chills to hear it! Fantastic music and timeless, innovative sounds that still are fresh!

Tommy was kind enough to offer a copy of his book as a prize to the radio show, and even autographed it to me! I can’t wait to read it, and will make another video with my thoughts about the book, so check back for that.

Here is a link to an archive of the stellar interview of Tommy James by DJ nico from Vinyl from the CIUT Crypt on September 17, 2011 in Toronto on 89.5FM (

iSad – The passing of Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs passed away today. This is sad news to me, indeed.

I’ve been using Apple computers since they came out in the ’80’s. I first owned a little box of magic from Apple, like the one in the picture, and it was life-changing! I remember what a revolution they were! As a writer laying out my own text, there were things I could do with an Apple Macintosh computer that I could do with no other computer at the time.

Steve Jobs and Apple Computers really lead the way for many of the tools we use now, everyday. So many things bear Steve’s legacy, but let’s not forget his powerful words as well:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
