Phew, what a summer! Warped Tour officially wrapped up this past Sunday in Hillsboro, OR and it was a bittersweet ending to an incredible summer. It’s one of the toughest tours to travel with, but it’s also one of the most fun tours around. peta2’s tour team made it look like a breeze this summer, and I’m pleased to share our success with you all !

Let’s all give it up for peta2’s tour interns that worked their asses off this summer *round of applause*! They did an outstanding job speaking to concert goers, and thanks to their hard work more than 178,000 people signed the “Flesh is for Zombies” pledge! Excuse me while I bust out my inner nerd, but let’s do the math here. Let’s see, that’s roughly 15 animals saved per person per week, multiplied by the number of people that are going Flesh-Free on Fridays, so we’re looking at roughly 2.6 million animals who won’t be eaten this year! Holy shit! Check out the chart that was used to track this monumental success throughout the summer.

Since I’m a former Street Team member, I am pleased to say that 90 volunteer spots were filled on this year’s Warped Tour, and we couldn’t have done it without your help. A big special thanks also goes out to our friends in A Skylit Drive, Relient K, Terrible Things, and D.R.U.G.S. for stopping by the peta2 tent to hang out. And shout outs to The Ready Set, Hellogoodbye, Enter Shikari, VANS, and all of our friends on the tour supporting peta2.

We’ll see you all next summer! Keep checking back here for more updates from the road!

    I've been a singer for 11 years, artist for 9, guitarist for 3, and an active member of PETA and peta2 for not even a year. I'm excited to see where this journey takes me! Feel free to add me!

    ☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ My name is Jason. Top 10 quirks: 1. I’m vegetarian. 2. I’m Sagittarius 3. Artist 4. I love The Beatles 5. Love dogs! 6. Spring is my favourite season. 7. I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol). But my favourite actors are Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman. · My favourite foods/restaurants are mangos, 99 Restaurant, Dominoes pizza, pickles, & Pinkberry/Froyo World.

As for Horror films the scariest I’ve seen are: Vile, Quarantine, Would You Rather & Truth or Die My favourite books are The Catcher In The Rye, Penpal, It’s Kind Of a Funny Story, & Life As we Knew it. · My favourite quotes are "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
