Asheville (North Carolina) goes 'You Tube'

Rather than go for the used and tired with Any Way You Like It  Asheville (North Carolina) asked the You Tube generation to submit videos recounting their visit to the city and what impressions they left with.

The main advertising campaign is called Unscripted or in their words "Come and spend some time in a place where life is unscripted, where each day is any way you like it".

The Asheville Tourist Office site puts the accent on the outdoors, the bucolic scenery and specials such as Girls Getaway.

In My Asheville you can submit Your Asheville story.

Kudos to their inclusive and innovative approach.

For Independent views on the Arts and the Local Scene you can also check Mountain Xpress.

Let me plan a week-end there to explore.

I found out about Asheville, Any Way You Like It on Coudal.

Oct 30
On one of my Monday morning trips to the world of PingMag in Tokyo, I discovered a character I could be for Halloween. His name is Jonny Fu and is the creation of Ron Jonzo, the man with the pen. The whimsy of the Jonny Wu story reminds me somehow of Wallace and Gromit. So if you have not yet decided what character you want to be on Halloween Night, why not be Jonny Fu....

Last Minute 'Halloween' Ideas: Visit 'Broceliande'

Oct 31
If you are not thrilled by the idea of being Jonny Fu as I suggested yesterday, visit a legendary forest, Broceliande. This imaginary place where maps point to the forest of Paimpont (in Brittany) is populated by Lancelot, Merlin (l'enchanteur), the Knights of the Round Table. This is one of these celtic legends that gets your mind racing. Maybe it gives you a theme for your Halloween party.
