<div class="quote-block"><b>Planet Green: Are you vegan? If so, please tell us when and why you made this lifestyle choice.</b><br><br>
Emilie Autumn: I am indeed. I became vegetarian a very long time ago, around age eleven, when I realized that there was very little difference between a chicken, a cow, a horse, or my dog. Making that odd distinction between who we eat and who we don't seemed very unnatural to me, so I just stopped eating animals entirely. Veganism came later, around ten years ago, and that was a choice I made as I began to become more educated on the facts about how poorly even dairy producing animals are often treated, how many chemicals they are injected with to increase their output, and how they often end up with the same fate of animals raised for slaughter. So, it was both a personal health choice as well as an ethical one.</div>
</div>
<br>
Lets start things off with an amazing interview <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

I got to see her live in a small teen place in oslo where I was working as a voulentair and I got to say Hi to her. Instant fangirl mode. I've loved her for years, just recently found out she was vegan actually, but it makes sense!<br>

Ahhh you beat me to it...if my intenet hadnt died!<br><br>
Anyway Emilie..yes. I remember when I first heard her music I fell instantly in love with her voice...I could listen to her talk for hours. When I found out she was Vegan my love for her only grew.<br>
After reading TAFWVG it just made me see her in a while new light, everything she went through and shes still standing, and using her experiences in a creative way, rather than just sitting wollowing.<br><br>
Anyway I love this interview she did a while back...its a long one mind!<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gu47z5Poajk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gu47z5Poajk</a>

I actually bought her opheliac album at random. I had some money and was all "I am tired of all my music, I will go to the record shop and buy a cd with a pretty cover" I listened to her for weeeeks and drove my then boyfriend insane!<br><br>
also, I don't know how you all are with personal pics on the forum, if it's not ok, I'll remove it, but this is me when I was 16, newborn emilie autumn fangirl <a href="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2404/2419863965_38e2f2180b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2404/...38e2f2180b.jpg</a>

I love that interview! It is super long but so worth it, she has a fascinating brain.<br><br>
I first heard about her when my roommate/friend randomly found Misery Loves Company online when I was 19, at the time I really liked it but it was one weird song out of many we were discovering so I didn't explore too much further.<br><br>
Then years later the same friend invited me to see Emilie Autumn live with him at the Rickshaw, it blew my mind! I had no idea what I was walking into when I went, and I think my jaw was hanging on the floor the whole time watching all the acrobatics and fire breathing and gawking at the beautiful costumes and elaborate sets and laughing at the brilliant little sketches they did in between songs. Simply amazing. Then I saw her again a year later at the same time and this time I took the boyfriend and another friend of ours, now they're both hooked too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
I agree about reading The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls, that book was so interesting I could barely put it down, but then when I got to the end I was so emotionally invested in the characters I had to put it down and wait a week to read the conclusion, I just didn't want it to end. Some parts of it were pretty hard to read, the cutting diary brought back some painful memories, but it's all so raw and honest. She basically vomits out all her thoughts onto the page, it's amazing to be able to see into someones head like that.<br><br>
Now I'm just really excited for her new album F.L.A.G.<br><br>
Apparently it's going to be a lot harsher and darker and a lot more metal. Yessssss! I can't wait to hear what happens when the Asylum Army gets loose <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/evil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":evil:">

I heard some Lady Gaga fan talking about the idiotic "monster claws" thing the other day. She got super defensive when I told her Lady G ripped that off from Emilie.

I have The Book..its excellent! Even if the story isnt your thing the artwork and imagery in the book is breathtaking..its a piece of art in its own right!<br>

I have an account there but I haven't posted at all, just lurked. Honestly I'm not really into it, the crowd seems pretty young and I felt kind of like I was crashing a high school party reading some of the posts. Plus lots of stuff about Lady Gaga <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
However, I did enjoy EA's posts that I found. Great stuff. I follow her Twitter account these days, it's pretty amusing too.
