I’m trying to get an answer to this question, and am finding conflicting answers. Can one establish a business presence on “The Facebook” without have it tied back to a specific user? For example, is the corporate Target Facebook page associated with a specific user?
I am quoting one of my lyrics per day until my new album comes out early next year. Everything from Hobo Nephew songs to The New Folklore to Spilled Milk to hip-hop tapes we made in high school. When the time is right, I will quote from the new album too. Tune in! twitter.com/TeagueAlexy
One of my hobbies a few years ago was researching the adventures of “Wild” Bill Cooper, which resulted in an article for Minnesota Monthly that focused on his criminal history and purported demise.
Filmmaker Mike Scholtz picked up where I left off, and is producing a feature-length documentary that tells the whole Wild Bill story. In addition to the trailer above, there’s a Wild Bill’s Run website and Twitter feed. You’ll have to wait a few more months to see the final product, though. Watch for updates.
It’s been a few years, but the Surfactants have finally released their second full-length album Our Dead Bodies. If you don’t know who the Surfactants are, that’s probably for the best.
You can stream it all for free and/or buy it here. It’s $4 or pay-what-you-want. There are also two singles featuring some remixes that are $1 each. There are currently no plans to produce any physical media. (…because CDs are just going to go in the garbage anyway and you can download very high quality files when you purchase them. And besides, if we made a CD and you bought the CD then you’d be paying twice as much for the same music and a bunch of garbage. So really your $4 [or more] is saving you $4 [or more].)
Oh, and there’s also a cover of a Haley Bonar song on the album, and she’s nice.
Sure, we don’t even know what the boundaries of what is now Minnesota Congressional District 8 will be in 2012, and yeah, the General Election is a full year away, but Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party candidates are lining up to challenge Republican Congressman Chip Cravaack. So let the vetting begin.
All four DFL candidates have agreed to engage in a live online lunch-hour forum on Tuesday, Nov. 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., moderated by Minnesota Public Radio’s Michael Olson.
You’ll be able to follow it live on Perfect Duluth Day, and also on mprnews.org, or read the full transcript anytime afterward on either website.
If you have a question you would like to ask the candidates, make it known now. You can comment to this post with your question, or go to this Idea Scale collaborative question-collecting page, where you can not only suggest a question, but approve or disapprove of questions other people have submitted.
This ought to keep you political nerds busy for a while.
I thought it would be better to start a whole new thread because this is an important topic. And yes it will be bloody tedious. But here is the deal: ever since Jean Paul Sartre it’s been known in Western Civ that one quality of social interaction is the ongoing appraisal of everyone by everyone else. Sartre called it “the Look” and what he meant by that was how a person was changed when they knew they were being perceived by someone else. Sartre’s lover, Simone de Beauvoir, was the first to write about how men used this system to relegate women to the category of “other.” We are men (persons) but women are not. They are other. Please don’t kill the messenger here — I am just repeating what they said.
I’m not sure how many of you on here enjoy watching skateboarding, but here is a montage from this Summer that my friend and I just released. I just thought I would post it to show some of the hidden talent that exists here in the Northland. All of this footage was filmed at Superior Skatepark. Filmed and edited by Mike Rapaich and Joe Hegberg.
I have three tickets for sale to the Blitzen Trapper/Dawes co-headlining show at First Avenue this Friday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. The Belle Brigade opens. After fees and taxes, they came to $30 each. I’m in Duluth, so we can meet up to do an exchange. Email joxley1 at gmail dot com if you are interested. Just FYI – the show is sold out.
For those who are too young to remember and/or didn’t live around here at the time, 20 years ago today our area experienced one of the craziest blizzards in history. The News Tribune Attic has a great retrospective, and you should check it out for photos and a timeline of local events.
The Halloween Megastorm was part of, or at least coincided with, what became known as The Perfect Storm, “a nor’easter that absorbed Hurricane Grace and ultimately evolved into a small hurricane late in its life cycle.”
Taking my early morning walk, I saw bulldozers taking down at least part of the ski jumps at Chester Bowl Park. My first thought was, “Oh no!” — I love that Duluth sorta thumbs its nose at risk-management concerns.
“Riley said he was motivated to run by a desire to make the Duluth City Council more approachable and welcoming to concerned citizens.
He also has strong views on social issues.
“Some people don’t much want to talk about it, but I support the marriage amendment, and that’s an important issue which is sure to be addressed between now and the 2012 election,” he said. “Our very existence depends on preserving the relationship between man and woman and the institution of marriage.”
