I just discovered that with Amazon Prime Membership you get to access Prime Instant Videos. Although they are not the latest release, but I still find many movies and tv series to watch. 🙂
Friends with kids: a fun, entertaining movie. I like the characters and the story. It’s sweet. 🙂
Dollhouse: it’s kind of silly idea but it’s well made and entertaining.
Vegucated: a documentary that follows a vegan challenge of three normal people for 6 weeks, and how they got transformed not only physically but mentally about being vegan.
The most shocking part is to see how dairy is made. Baby cows are separated from their mother at day 1; the mother cow can’t see her baby; she produces all the milk for human consumption when her baby gets to eat milk substitute; and when she stops producing milk, she’s artificially inseminated to get pregnant again, and the cycle goes over and over again!!! 👿 I’m angry that we human do this to a mother, whether it’s to a human or a cow. It’s just not right!!! Obviously this fact is there and I neglected it until now. Once I know it for real, it got me deeply. I simply can’t imagine someone doing this to me, to separate me from Sofia right after I bring her to life, that she will be fed with substitute full of hormones to gain 2 lbs per day. It’s so cruel.
There are others things in the documentary that is surprising and shocking to me. In an ideal world, I’d go vegan. Not for its nutritional reasons, which is still in debate, but for ethical reason. Never before I felt attached to animals so when I hear someone going vegan for ethical reason, I respect or even admire them, but I never truly understood them. Now I feel I’m scratching the face of veganism.
The major point of this is how uninformed we are. For many things we think we have a rough idea of it, but in many cases we know close to nothing. Ignorance is dangerous and sad.
Q: What’s your thoughts on veganism?
