Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Perhaps to stave off cabin fever now that winter has finally come to the party, some blogs took us to other locales this week.

Ashvegas caught up with Sundance film-festival entry “Anywhere USA” (formerly “Asheville: The Movie”), with this roundup on the state of indie filmmaking.

High Country Conservative (now Appalachian Scribe) took us way out, with photographic evidence of Martian life that will likely find its way across the desk of Joshua P. Warren.

Then The Asheville Music Scene reeled it in a bit with a Boston Globe review of local band The Royal We.

Speaking of music, Mount Dungeon had this to say about last weekend’s POPAsheville Festival.

And while we’re on the topic of dungeons, Sophie Seriously wants to know what your fetishes are.

Which brings us to restraint and naturally leads us to Nightshade’s new Wunderbra over at Phidou.

    Thanks again for the showcase, Brian.

    For a damn near comprehensive roll of local bloggers, visit BlogAsheville:

    Also, BlogAsheville’s copious talent is hooking up with the community media mavens of MAIN & WPVM on Saturday, Feb. 2nd at the Rocket Club. It’s going to be an absolute scream.

    To be honest, it has been Mx’s interest in blogging and the Forums addition that has gotten me reading MountainX regularly. I used to be a once-in-a-while reader or if i wanted to verify a music group or other event when i would read it.

    Thanks for what you folks do.

  3. Brain,

    Thought I’d mention that I’ve been added as a “guest” blogger on Around Asheville. My first guest post appeared on the site on 1-25-08. My plan is to find uniquely Asheville ‘experiences’ to cover, such as the Faces of Asheville project.

    Meanwhile, I’m more than one-quarter of the way through my “Year in Asheville” blog project, which can be found at

    Thanks for covering the local blogging beat.
