The Ghosts in Our Machine

I had the great fortune of attending a screening of The Ghosts in Our Machine last night. It is a film that highlights the ways humans use animals for food, fashion, research, and entertainment. The film's protagonist, Jo-Anne McArthur, is a photographer who works to show that animals are sentient beings and are deserving of much more than filling the role of property or commodities. In the film, McArthur photographs animals in these settings in the U.S., Canada, and Europe over the course of a year. The film is truly moving and I encourage everyone to watch it. I got teary-eyed several times, but I get emotional easily and I don't believe that it's impossible to get through (in contrast, I had a very hard time watching Earthlings the first time I saw it). 

Here is the trailer for The Ghosts in Our Machine: 

On a lighter note, I went to a great vegan place in Ann Arbor and destroyed this carrot cake whoopie pie:

Now I'm off to do my 3 miler! Today is technically rest day for me but I skipped my run yesterday because my knee was hurting. Yesterday's workout consisted of back, biceps, and some hip ad/abductions. :)
