So far I'm on day 2 of my raw foods diet. I'm trying to make it till Sunday evening eating only raw fruits and vegetables. Ever since I moved back to Florida in 02 I've really been eating like shit. It's weird to think I was strictly vegan for so many years and now my diet consists of lots of fast food, lots of soda, and lots of dairy. So since school is out I figured it was as good a time as any to get a grip on my lifestyle choices. I decided to go on raw foods for the next few days to allow my body to recouperate after all the junk I've put in it and also as an excercise in discipline. I'm trying to hold out until Pacific Rim on Sunday. I'm doing pretty good so far and actually feel lighter and more energetic, but not consuming caffeine and high fructuse corn syrup has left me coping with some wicked withdrawal headaches.
Here's my food consumption thus far:
Breakfast: nectarine, banana, and cherries
Lunch: plum, nectarine, apple
Mid-Afternoon Snack: plum
Dinner: tomato slices, cucumber slices, and avacado w/ rice vinegar and seasining to taste
Breakfast: chopped strawberries and bananas, and cherries
Lunch: plum, nectarine, 2 bananas
Mid-Afternoon Snack: apple
Dinner: 1 large carrot, a glass of carrot/celery/garlic juice
After I finish this on Sunday, I'm not sure whether I'll go vegan again or not. I'd like to, but I'd be okay using dairy sparingly and preferably organic. We'll see.
In other news I'm probably going to set up a proper record release show for Asthma Atttaq towards the end of August. It'll probably be at the Olympia Theatre in Palmetto, which is a really cool children's theatre and has a stage that is decorated to look like a castle. It's outdoors and the owners are friendly and genuinely just want some "art" going on in the heart of conservative Palmetto. Though they typically charge kids more than I feel comfortable with and shows must end by 10:00 because of the noise.
To make up for a long hiatus I've got quite a few things coming out in the not some distant future:
FEB-006 Ispoke "Autobiography" CD - Feminist, Anti-capitalist emo from Canada
FEB-007 Yossarian is Drowning 7" - Pansy violence from the UK
FEB-008 Arse Moreira/Black Castle - split 7" - Screamo from Mexico vs. Posi-Goth Darkwave from NC
and it also looks like I'll be doing the U.S. Pressing of Belle Epoque's Full-length. Wheew...
