    Sounds totally cool, huh? I'll let you try it out first and you can tell me what a zoo it is! I imagine it draws a pretty wild crowd.


    I imagine the next step is starting with the live animal, unless that's against the law.

    Kuno I *love* SF, *almost* as much as NYC, which is a big thing to say. I really enjoyed the months I lived there. Happy days...

    Very interesting story! I especially loved the vegetarian who made the great moral decision to kill her first meat!

    Well, first experiment at adding a photo and a dud. I went back to the instructions and I followed them perfectly. WTH??

    It's called natural (picture?) selection, OTB

    I just reread the article, and I really love this paragraph:


    Guggiana calls the butchery phenomenon a "perfect storm" of sustainability, food awareness and an increasing DIY aesthetic seen in the rise of sewing, crafting, kinetic art and rudimentary repair. "It's just that none of us do anything, none of us make anything," she explains. "None of us have that sort of integrity in our life. We buy everything, everything appears in our life readymade—even our entertainment. I really believe that's soul-sapping. So when you get turned on to doing something that's that simple, and seeing it from start to finish, it's so satisfying.

    ********

    This woman hits the primal nail on the head, don't you think?

    @DM:


    Hear, hear!!! I'll check it out, and report back. I'm pretty sure it's illegal to start with a live animal; however at the Farmer's Market they have some guy on the (screened) back of a truck offing fresh chickens for people. Maybe there's a loophole ;-)


    @Serial: I have lived in SF for 15 years now; and I could never ever live anywhere else :-)


    @OTB: Try one more time? I really want to see your picture!
