The Book: The Flinch

First, the punchline: the book is free. It’s called The Flinch. It’s part of Seth Godin’s The Domino Project with Amazon. The Author is Julien Smith, NYT best-selling author of Trust Agents. Julien & I connected when he did MovNat last year, and then also began doing Leangains consulting with Martin Berkhan. And then, he contributed a...…Read More

What You’re Up Against Update

Hope everyone is enjoying the day after Christmas. One more week to go, and it’s back to life as usual. Got an email the other day and thought I’d share it. The subject of the email: paleo Discrimination I decided to write this for two reasons: First, I want to make others aware of the...…Read More

Christmas Eve Dinner Party: Deviled Eggs “Ikura Style,” Mussels, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, & Baked Salmon

As you’ll see, I spent most of the day shopping, then in the kitchen to prepare dinner for eight last night. All the images can be clicked for their higher-resolution versions. On appetizer, we have some of by beef and chicken liver pâté. Pâté with Celery Alongside was my favorite way to serve up deviled eggs....…Read More

Book Update: Here’s the Cover. Live Soon

 Updates to follow.   One guy on Twitter, when I uploaded this earlier, tweeted: “it’s not pretty, but I’ll buy your book anyway.” Yea, these things are subjective to the max. All I really hope for is that it’s ultimately judged in context of the intention: That it’s actually read. Non-fiction books are notorious for...…Read More

Christmas at the speed of life… A Guest Post by William F.X. O’Connell AKA Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Willie

Some years ago I became acquainted with someone over the internet who shares my penchant for individualism. I’d known of him years earlier via USENET, but it wasn’t until I began blogging in 2003 that I one day received an email from him concerning a particular post of mine. We’ve exchanged emails and chatted on...…Read More

Beef and Chicken Liver Pâté

Well this is a fist for Free the Animal: two posts on beef liver back-to-back. But why not? The last post still has a good amount of comment enthusiasm going for it, and I’d break it down into those who love liver and have their ways of doing it—from raw to well done—those who just...…Read More

A Free the Animal 1st Book Update (IT’S DONE!)

A couple of weeks ago when I got access to the shared Google doc by the head editor at Hyperink—the doc that included the production schedule, responsibilities, instructions, proposed outline for the book and the actual book drafting space—my first thought was that they were all smoking something that was not being shared with me....…Read More

Farewell to [Debunking] Paleo

So apparently, there’s a new series of videos by some vegan advocate called “Primitive Nutrition;” and no, equally apparently, he’s not talking about the plankton and shit our way-way back bi-valve ancestors ate. He picks and chooses his ancestors, just like we do, but perhaps a bit wayer back. I think he’s up to 71...…Read More

My Free the Animal Book, Repartee

Yea, I blogged about it yesterday. And yea, shame level is pretty nil. That is, I love this, finally, and I’m probably gonna pump it, a bit. If you don’t like it, fine. If you don’t care, fine, and thanks for reading anyway. …Or, judge for yourself; as is, essentially, the theme of the book. You...…Read More

Don’t Listen to Me. Listen to Dr. Terry Wahls, Cured from Debilitating Multiple Sclerosis (MS) On a Paleo Diet

As so many commenters on various posts point out from time to time, almost nobody will listen to them about their “Paleo Diet,” even in spite of dramatic weight loss, usually accompanied by equally dramatic health improvements. The reasons are usually similar: “you’re not a doctor;” “it’s just a fad;” “grains are in the Bible,...…Read More

Three Small Appliances I Quite Like

I don’t like single use tools in general. Sometimes I make exceptions. ~ The other day I went out to a local place where you can get various kitchen appliances, intending to get one thing, walking out with three things. Fist, the one thing I intended to get. I’ve seen advertised the Sodastream, where you make...…Read More
