WANTED: One WLOS anchor

WANTED: One WLOS anchor

As I mentioned in my blog bits post, it’s been months since WLOS said goodbye to anchor Frank Cracker and WLOS has yet to name a successor. Scott “Scottie-too-Hottie” Wickersham appears to be the heir apparent, but as far as I can tell, it’s not a done deal. In fact, there’s still a job posting on the local TV station’s[Read More…]

Jawad looking for some respect

Jawad looking for some respect

The one guy from the super-talented Tar Heels national championship squad that nobody really seems to be talking about much as we approach the NBA draft is Jawad Williams. ‘Wad, the behind-the-scenes leader of the crew, the guy who started ahead of Marvin Williams, one of the guys who stuck it out through the lean Doherty years. Here’s a story[Read More…]

Blog bits: What was Tammy wearing?

Blog bits: What was Tammy wearing?

Tammy all dolled up What was Tammy wearing the other night – some sort of crimson jacket with a high-collared, sequined thing underneath. She looked like a freakin’ Vegas showgirl or something. Tammy, you got a gig on the side, or what? We’re used to seeing Tammy around town in a ballcap and jeans, looking more like a dude than[Read More…]

What about those rocks?

What about those rocks?

I wanted to follow up on my visit to Dave’s Avant Garden last week. I had a great time checking out Dave’s rock stacks. Dave is passionate about rocks like no one I’ve met before. When he’s working with them, you can see him sort of talking to them in his mind. He gets a sense of their weight, their[Read More…]

In the garden, it’s berry-pickin’ time

In the garden, it’s berry-pickin’ time

I had a blast harvesting my first few handfuls of berries in the garden Saturday morning before the rains moved in. I’ve got raspberries and blackberries and they’re just now turning. I had to cover them up during that late cold spell we had earlier in the year and the plants have been just fine. It looks like I’ll have[Read More…]

What’s going on with Rashad McCants?

What’s going on with Rashad McCants?

Word is that Rashad McCants’ stock as a potential NBA baller has been dropping faster than a pair of Paris Hilton’s panties. What’s going on? The Citizen-Times has a story here</a a column here. We’re watching Rashad because he’s from Ashvegas, because he played for the Tar Heels and because he’s just one of those characters you’ve got to watch.[Read More…]

A shout out to Hey!-wood County

A shout out to Hey!-wood County

Maybe I’m not like most bloggers. Maybe most bloggers want to toil in obscurity, just putting their shit up on the web and hoping nobody notices. Not me. I want people to read me. I want to start conversations. I want people to take part – isn’t that the purpose of putting it out on the World Wide Web?? So[Read More…]

Another blog cartoon

Apparently this one is really, really big across the pond. There’s some debate over whether it should even be called a “cartoon,” but whatever you call it, it’s hot. The dude is selling prints for big bucks. Please follow and like us:

The waffler strikes again

The waffler strikes again

Last weekend, Susan Fisher, one of three N.C. House representatives from Buncombe County, wrote a guest editorial about the need for Ashvegas City Council and Buncombe commissioners to work out a deal on the water agreement. Fisher’s words is one thing. Her actions are another. She’s been all over the road on the issue, so how can we trust her[Read More…]

Blog cartooning

This guy is awesome. Hugely popular in Britian. I will tell you more about him soon, but for now, I want to keep him to myself. (Though you’re certainly welcome to figure it out for yourself.) Of course, I don’t make money on this blog. In fact, it’s costing me. Maybe one day I’ll figure it out. Please follow and[Read More…]

A mountain lotus garden

A mountain lotus garden

John “Punnyman” Le left the puns to the anchors and did a decent little story on a beautiful Madison County lotus garden during the Friday night news. Problem is, as usual, he left the news out. Is it open to the public? When? How do I get there? There was some mention of a festival – when? C’mon, dude. What[Read More…]

Dreamland diaries

Dreamland diaries

The last vestigae of the old Dreamland Drive-In is going by the wayside. The local newspaper has the story here. That part of town was once part of the boonies. It was so dark you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face at night. So the Pless family opened up a drive-in theater there in 1948, just after[Read More…]

Pissing in the wind

Pissing in the wind

WLOS led separate news casts with major breaking news Thursday night: first, there was “just released surveillance video” of last fall’s flooding (yes, this is true); and second, there was breaking news from Pritchard Park – bums piss in the park (gasp!) Russ “Nice-Buns” Bowen had the scoop on the flood videotape. They could have aired tape of grass growing[Read More…]
