Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Where were our heads at this week? Thank goodness there were bloggers all over the area taking note of the milestones, moments and murmurings from the past week.

Bruisin’ Ales Beer Blog noted that Steven Colbert noted that last week was American Craft Beer Week, and had a couple of choice words for Esquire Magazine. And the Asheville Beer Blog has a tip that Highland has selected its hotly anticipated imperial variation for this year. Spoiler alert: It’s a stout!

Arratik wished a happy birthday to the late local Bob Moog, and Ashvegas announced that the DILOA photos are up.

A week after Strive Not to Drive, Skippy Haha was still striving, but was foiled into driving.

Earlier this month, the folks behind the ParkSide development fired up, but this week The Ashevillein turned us onto this spoof site. You can’t handle the truthiness! And in case you still have no idea what we’re talking about, Scrutiny Hooligans has this handy primer.

WNC Magazine profiled local rock stacker Dave Russell, and The Avant Garden already has a headline prepared for the follow-up, and the Medford trial is over, but Bothwell’s Blog still has questions.

On the home front, it looks like What the Hell won’t be leaving hers anytime soon, Admin at Blog Asheville has some words for his cable supplier and Petulant Rumblings has been killing his yard.

And there was some sort of time warp, apparently. How else to explain how Liminal Screeds corrected this post at Nice Marmot a full three days before it was written?
