Found on Tumblr, Lift Bridge Facelifts – “A study in removing Duluth’s iconic Aerial Lift Bridge out of the endless logos where it dwells.”
I got lucky today and stopped by Perk Place at the time that Naomi “Sundog” Yaeger-Bischoff was completing her exhibition of recent photographs. Naomi operates the Duluth Daily Photo blog), where some of these works first appeared. (She is also the guiding vision behind the Budgeteer.) The picture above is of the artist and the support staff (daughter) who made the exhibit possible. Swing by and take a look.
Here’s a bit of what you’ll find in this week’s PDD Calendar:
Get informed about ranked-choice voting, spit in Columbus’ eye and celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day, take in a Halloween-themed Nerd Nite at Teatro Zuccone, take in a mayoral debate between Emily Larson and Chuck Horton and laff it up with podcaster and noted comic David Huntsberger.
Sarah Brokke opens two art shows at once, UMD Women’s Hockey starts off their season with a game against Mankato, the Buffalo House’s Haunted Shack opens for spooky business, Bethany Crisis Center holds their 7th annual Music & Dance Party, Disney’s Aladdin Jr. opens at the Duluth Playhouse, Boo at the Zoo 2015 continues at the Zoo and the Superior Spooktacular is a full day of Halloween activities.
Duluth rockers RoofTop Fable team up the Spin Collective fire dancers to create this unique visual experience. “Fighting the Current” is off the band’s debut album, Chapter One, which will be released Nov. 21 at R.T. Quinlan’s, where the band holds a monthly residency rocking the downtown stage every third Saturday of the month.
The champagne bottle popped shortly after noon today. In what must rank among the laziest accomplishments in endurance sports history, I completed the final stretch of my quest to hike the entire Superior Hiking Trail … 15 years after I started.
The 296-mile journey was tackled in about 45 different hikes spread out between Sept. 24, 2000, and Oct. 11, 2015. The longest single hike was about 15 miles. The shortest was today’s hike, which was less than a mile. Perhaps some day I’ll gather stories from the journey into some sort of narrative, but for today I’ll just present a simple breakdown of the mileage per year.
