Transformus 2008

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 23, 2008

I posted an article on the Neo-Pagan Religious Festival called Transformus on WNC Citizens Blog yesterday, including a photo of last year’s temple burn, and videos a participant posted to you tube.

The festival is based on the Burning Man that takes place every year in the Nevada desert.

Asheville is really living up to their new motto (Any Way You Like It) designed to bring in the tourists, and this Neo-Pagan Festival seems to fit the bill.

I wonder how many of the Pagans who cast spells to protest their Magnolia in front of City Hall went to this festival? They are currently camped out on Stewart Coleman’s property in front of Asheville’s City Hall.

Six NC-11 Counties Support "Principles First Campaign"

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 17, 2008

I wrote about it on WNC Citizens Blog.

I am really surprised at how everyone has misinterpreted this move by Mumpower, and misunderestimated him. Just ask his former opponents in the GOP Primary. I know I did.

In my opinion, the core of his support comes from people seeing him portrayed on WLOS as the sole adult on City Council (not on purpose, to be sure) all these years. Take this video I posted of Mumpower making Mayor Bellamy (and The Fab Four) look like idiots on the matter of partisan elections in Asheville. He was vindicated by the voters of Asheville, when they rejected the measure.

Festival Videos

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 14, 2008


I’ll be posting this year’s A Taste of Scotland Videos on WNC Citizens Blog, and have posted the first one already. I’ll be posting more throughout the day tomorrow.

This year, I pretty much stayed near the Gazebo Stage so I could catch most of the music and dance performances.
