Visit Asheville

One thing about the Internet is, I dunno, there’s probably a fancy word for it, but I’ll call it dis-local-ization. You know, the whole idea that I don’t have to care where Amazon’s headquarters is or that I can listen to New York-based radio station whenever I want. (And Metroblogging is all about re-local-ization. Which is another word I just made up.)

Of course, a side-effect of that is that if you’re running a TV ad contest in Asheville, NC and expect to get a lot of videos of people sitting by rivers (North Carolina rivers, that is) you just might end up with a ton of absurdist masterpieces by a Chicago filmmaker. You know, like this and this and this and this and this (all links Quicktime movies).

But man, I’d go anywhere that squirrel told me to go.
