New Duluth Film Meetup Group

I’m a filmmaker new to Duluth. I started a new Meetup so I could wrangle all the film enthusiasts in the area into one location. The group covers people interested in making films and those who just enjoy watching them. Only a day old and already growing, with our first meeting coming up Sept. 4. Hope to see you there!

Doctor Who Fundraising

Doctor Who, which is $2,800 for Series 7, may be still coming to Duluth TV, but your involvement is needed! I would like to form a group of volunteers who are willing to work to make this happen! This group would likely meet every other week.

Doctor Who could be coming to Duluth TV

A popular science fiction series could be airing on Duluth televisions soon. I am in the process of trying to raise money for the purchase of Doctor Who Series 7. The series would be shown on WDSE-WRPT PBS, channels 8 and 31, though it should be noted that the station wants no involvement or association in the fundraising process. 

UPDATE: I am not proceeding with the fundraising campaign. The cost of Series 7 of Doctor Who is $2,800, and there is no workable way to deal with the donations.

A celebration of nerd culture: Comicon promos, games, Nerd Nites and tea duelling

I post here a lot about arts and wildlife, but much of my passion is really for nerd culture. It’s been something I have felt a lot of this summer.

Justin Berke’s Year in Duluth

Justin Berke recently celebrated his one-year anniversary of living in Duluth by creating an infographic website at ayearinduluth.tk.

Help with Duplicator

No, I’m not trying to copy myself. I have a Model 70 Conquerer Spirit Duplicator which I am trying to figure out. I have never used one but am interested in how the machine works and would love to get this one back in action. If anyone could share some knowledge or point me in the direction of some good resources I would greatly appreciate it.

Happy Eleventeenth Birthday to us!

Perfect Duluth Day is eleven years old today — Sunday, June 29, 2014. The official celebration is at Carmody Irish Pub tonight at 8 p.m. Fabulous prizes will be awarded to the top finishers of this week’s Pub Quiz, the questions for which will all be related to PDD. It’s a super tough quiz, so study intensively.

Video Archive: How many geeks can you fit into a Kia Rio?

The third iteration of the Geek Prom happened ten years ago at the Great Lakes Aquarium. As a publicity stunt, we decided to find out how many geeks we could cram into a Kia Rio. Answer: 21. The more important question, however, was: Could we make WDIO anchor Dennis Anderson lose his composure? Answer: Yes.
