La Vegetariana Loca

Here are some random ramblings of a girl that will probably end up in an insane asylum sometime in her near future...Kookookachoo. She loves her Queen, she loves her Beatles and her Who and her Zeppy and her music in general. She loves her writing. She loves love. And she loves you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Two Things. :)

(^Roger Daltrey as McVicar in the film by the same name. A good movie, but a little more romantic than the actual story. But hey, who's complaining? Roger Daltrey's in it.)
One: READ MCVICAR BY HIMSELF. If you can somehow get a copy of the book, do. It's really, really good. I'd been searching for years (not exaggerating!) for this book, and now that I have it...Well, Roger Daltrey said it best: "This is a book you do put down...because you want it to last."

McVicar by Himself is the true story about John McVicar, one of Britain's most wanted in the 1960's. He was sentenced to 23-years in prison, and he escaped twice (I think it was twice...). Finally, he decided that, if he was captured again, he would stay in prison and turn himself around. And that's what he did. He wrote his memoirs in prison, scripted a movie based on his life, and basically went from being "a bank robber, a prisoner, an escapee," to being "a journalist, a broadcaster, an athlete, an author, a publisher."

He's also, for as much as it's worth, one of the main reasons why I want to be a journalist when I get older.

I love his writing's very distinctive. No frills. He just tells it like it is. And I love it.

You can visit him at

Two: GABE SAPORTA. Yes, yes. We still like him muchly. Saporta, who is the lead singer of Cobra Starship (Snakes on a Plane? Oh, yes.) and was the lead singer of Midtown was recently featured in this ad by PETA2.
Now you have another reason not to wear fur. Sure, a bandwagon reason, but hey. He's a gorgeous bandwagon reason, if I may say so myself.
