No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of This Film: PlantPure Nation

PlantPure Nation

Many are going to go and see the movie PlantPure Nation because they already agree with what they expect it will say, and that is nothing new for films that could be fairly generalized as leftist documentaries. The main complaint this group faces is that it functions as a facet of the all too present mutual approval machine. PlantPure Nation, however, offers up a film that is more interesting than one might expect. Hopefully it draws some viewers who are curious about the changing face of food in America or even those who, by no fault of their own, haven’t given it much thought.

Eco-Friendly, Philosophical, Patchouli-Soaked Quipster to Perform in Asheville

AJ Finney

On Saturday, August 22nd, nationally-acclaimed stand-up comedian AJ Finney is booked to perform at 8:00pm in downtown Asheville at The Millroom.

If Asheville had a spirt-comedian, it may just be AJ Finney: Stylistically manic, artistically brilliant, and a passion for the 60’s psychedelic scene.  Comedy, Jam Bands, and Volkswagens; that’s him - he’s like an eco-friendly, improvisational, sometimes philosophical, patchouli soaked quipster.

"I've never been to Ashville, but It's been explained to me as a magical place filled with beautiful people who've transcended to a higher understanding, or maybe that was the parking lot of a grateful dead show? Regardless I'm looking forward to having a real good time on 8/22/15." –AJ Finney
