About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

Lollapalooza 2009 - the official & complete lineup [from Brooklyn Vegan]

Lollapalooza 2009 - the official & complete lineup

Lollapalooza

"Though promoters around the country report strong early ticket sales for festivals and summer tours, the recession is causing jitters. This year Coachella, which has the most glamorous reputation of all American festivals, began selling tickets on layaway, and 18 percent of its customers took that option, Mr. Tollett said.

The proliferation of big festivals, like Bonnaroo near Nashville and Lollapalooza in Chicago, has not been without casualties. This year Langerado in Miami shut down, citing the economy. The Pemberton Festival in British Columbia is on hiatus after only one year, although its promoter, Live Nation, said the problem was permit delays." [NY Times]

Music, Photos, & News from a Vegan in Brooklyn

ABOUT BROOKLYN VEGAN
BrooklynVegan is a NYC-centric mostly-music blog that focuses on reporting international music news, live show reviews, pictures, tour dates, gossip, tips, MP3's, videos, and just about anything else a music fan could want. Non-music news finds it's way on to our pages as well, and every post comes with an open exchange of ideas via the public commenting system.

Though still primarily run by one person (often reffered to as "Brooklyn Vegan" and/or "BV"), we've (I've) recently expanded to include regular and semi-regular contributers. Contributors include:
  • "Brooklyn Vegan" - runs this site, never meant for that to become an actual nickname. e-mail is the best way to reach him.
  • Showtrotta - "Showtrotta" writes the weekly "week in dance" content - posts that focus on electro happenings in and around NYC as well as related artist profiles and downloads. You can also find Showtrotta at her own blog.
  • Black Bubblegum - "The Week in Metal" is his primary focus, but you'll find his name on numerous other mostly-metal-related music news and reviews as well. Contact BB at akablackbubblegum AT gmail
  • Bill Pearis - the latest feature writer to join BrooklynVegan, Bill fills in the "indie" blanks in his new weekly column about Indie Rock. He can also be found at his own blog called Sound Bites.
  • Kyle Dean Reinford - photo editor and contributing photographer.
  • Largehearted Boy - Largehearted Boy writes "Largehearted Boy's Interesting CD Releases This Week". This is a feature that started, and can also still be found, on Largehearted Boy's own world-renowned music blog.
  • Nick Masi - my co-host on BrooklynVegan "blog radio" on Sirius, Nick is also an occasional contributor to the website.
Stay tuned for a more complete list of contributors.

BrooklynVegan also sponsors and produces events, and can be heard on Sirius satellite radio station 'Left of Center' every Wednesday @ 12pm EST (noon), and again @ midnight (EST).

The best way to contact us is via e-mail.
