Fave Food: Soy ice-cream heaped with nuts & chocolate topping, chocolate, spaghetti, 3 �cheeze� lasagne, hot-dogs, hamburgers, vegie-roast, Anzac cookies, lamingtons, custard rice-pudding, peanut-butter & fudge ice-cream pie, banana cake, chocolate cream-pie etc Fave Music: The best of: Squeeze, Elvis Costello, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Cure, The Pretenders, The Beatles, Matthew Sweet, Crowded House, Matt Monro, Echo & The Bunnymen, ELO, Bowling for Soup, Fountains of Wayne, Simon & Garfunkel, 10CC, etc Fave Animal: Dogs & cats � though I once saw a program featuring a family with their sheep named 'Timmy' who liked to sit on a bean-bag and watch tv and chill, and Alex the parrot became famous for demonstrating avian intelligence, so I'm sure I'd enjoy other specie What's Hot: The Rum'n'Raisin, Ghana Peppemint, and Dark Peanut Slab of the Whittaker's range, dark chocolate served with spearmint jubes, or marzipan slices, or both, and those ginger chocolates, fruit creams, and 'orange straws' from Alpha. Sweet tooth? No! What's Not: The inability of many adults to empathise with other species. 140-odd YEARS ago Charles Darwin wrote in 'The Descent of Man' of the similarity between humans and other animals. Hopefully our politicians will one day become aware of this.

Vegan since the summer of 82/83 (vegetarian 6 months prior), singer/songwriter, pianist, guitarist and writer - who usually does glorified clerical work! I grew up on a dairy farm in country Victoria, and as a kid was pressured to take part in home slaughtering, hunting, fishing etc. Unfortunately I didn't start to question the necessity for inflicting suffering on animals till I was 13 - but at least that started me on the path to veganism.

Apart from music I'm enthusiastic about literature, movies, some great tv series, food, nature, and although nominally an atheist, I do follow the one true religion

    Back in 2006 I interviewed Glenys Oogjes of Animals Australia for a Channel 31 program, was very impressed with the organisation and its goals, and hope Unleashed is a great success! (Found this site by clicking on the ad on the Vegetarian Society website.)

    As Charles Darwin wrote in 'The Descent of Man' (1871): "We have seen that the senses and intuitions, the various emotions and faculties, such as love, memory, attention and curiosity, imitation, reason, etc., of which man boasts, may be found in an incipient, or even sometimes in a well-developed condition, in the lower animals."

    It would be nice to see such long-known facts at last reflected in laws concerning animals, so we could see a degree of consistency and justice in their treatment.
