Flicks4Change Film Festival
Mar 05 2018

Flicks4Change_logoLast week I received some exciting news about the upcoming inaugural Sydney Flicks4Change Film Festival, to be held on Saturday 17th March as part of the prestigious annual Short+Sweet program.

Not only has my latest music video “Mother and Child” been selected as part of the program, but I have also been invited as a guest on the post-screening panel discussion that will wrap up the event.

Other socially conscious films in the program will cover issues such as disability and inclusion, mental health, Aboriginal affairs, LGBT issues, suicide prevention, human trafficking and the environment. I’m so honoured to be a part of this wide-ranging “film festival with a social conscience”!

Tickets are available here: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/shortsweet/145106 (or the shortened link: bit.ly/flicks4change2018) and adding the code VEGANTHUSED will contribute 50% of the ticket price to future Veganthused projects. (or, use the code ANIMALLIBERATION if you want to support AL instead!)

Full details:

  • Saturday 17th March 2018
  • 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm
  • Tom Mann Theatre, 136 Chalmers Street, Surry Hills (next to Central Station)
There's also a Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/216748358887879/ 
 
Check out the new stickers and magnets I've had designed especially for this special occasion!

Footprints Film Festival to show two Veganthused videos
Aug 23 2017

FootprintsFilmFestival2017If it were possible to measure 'levels of being thrilled', well let's just say that mine would currently be *off the charts*!  Two Veganthused! music videos will be screened - twice each, at midday and 1.50pm - at the Footprints Film Festival this Sunday, 27th August!  It's part of Annandale's footprints ecofestival in Sydney's inner west.

What an experience it will be to watch them on the big screen in a bicycle-powered cinema!

 

 

 
Mother and Child - Dairy's inherent Despair
Apr 13 2017

Mother and Child is the new single for MC Pony.

 
Born to Die - a brand new single
Mar 10 2017

I am so excited to announce that there is another MC Pony release on the way.

"Born to Die" is an evocative 'first-person' account of a broiler chicken's sad existence. Co-written with fellow Sydney-sider Robert Pearce, and featuring Tayberry as guest vocal artist, we hope this track will help spread a greater awareness to the reality of 'broiler farming'.

The single will be released officially late next week but you can already give it a spin on YouTube or Facebook.

 

 
The Icing on my Cake
Feb 14 2017


Icing_on_my_Cake_thumbnailI wrote a love song over half a decade ago called “The Icing on my Cake”. It’s a sweet little ditty (pardon the pun!!) that doesn’t fit for MC Pony and also isn’t ‘commercial’ enough to use for pitching to other artists. But I still wanted to share it somehow, and with today being Valentine’s Day it seemed appropriate timing to release this particular track into the world.

Enormous thanks to Kristin Lajeunesse of Will Travel for Vegan Food for supplying so many shots of various delicious vegan desserts she has encountered in her travels + editing this all together! Thanks also to an anonymous friend for lending me her amazing vocals. :)

The MAKER kitchen opening inspires a blog post!
Oct 22 2016

MAKER_orange_cakeWell, Winter has come and gone and even half of Spring has passed me by without another blog update here, but the grand opening event for the MAKER Kitchen takeaway coffee and treat bar has brought me out of hibernation!  Here's a bit of a mix of recent Veganthused! and MC Pony happenings, along with certified drool-worthy pics from the food delights available at today's opening.

MC Pony’s 18th Veganniversary celebration!
May 03 2016
Happy_Veganniversary_cartoon_animals_with_logo

Well, I will warn you right from the outset that this is going to be a super-long blog post, so apologies in advance for that – for what it’s worth, there’s a cute pic of dear Jackpot at the bottom as your reward for getting all the way down there!  But I’m just so excited and the reason is: as of next month, June 2016, I will officially be an 'adult vegan', so I’m throwing a special party & track release combo event and I'd love for you to come celebrate with me!

 

 
Happy Veganniversary - MC Pony's first official single!
Aug 30 2015

Happy_Veganniversary_release_promo_imageAre you vegan? This is a song for you to celebrate the anniversary of the date you went vegan! If you don't know the date, how about picking 1st November, World Vegan Day, and playing it for yourself then? This also gives you another great excuse to eat some vegan cake!

If you're not vegan, you probably still know someone who is, so why not send them the link (http://bit.ly/HappyVeganniversary) to bring a smile to their face!
