Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on What happened to that poster from R. T. Quinlan’s men’s room? by Paul Lundgren

The prevailing theories on Facebook are that it was removed by the owner either due to chronic vandalism or after the place was scrubbed down when the smoking ban started.

So theft is just one of three theories at this point.

Comment on PhTSD by destenlee

They put a brand new sign up about a month or so ago. I drove for them on weekends when they were closing and was told they planned to reopen it eventually. They closed and haven’t heard anything since.

Comment on So long, Stadium Lanes by Paul Lundgren

The Duluth News Tribune has partially answered the question, “Who bought the hardwood from the bowling lanes and where is it now?” Three lanes crossed the border into Superior, serving as bartops and tabletops at the Capri Bar and Jack’s Place.

Comment on 6.5-million Bottles of Beer on the Wall: A tally of annual craft brew production in the Duluth area by jessige

The first brewpub in the area that offers a Schlemiel Schlimazel beer with a hasenpfeffer stew gets my money. And undying admiration.

We have updated the post to note Jonathan Portinga is the interim head brewer at CPB. Thanks for the heads up, John.

Comment on Selective Focus: Sanctuary by Tim White

If art were meant solely to elevate, we’d have vapid theme parks instead of museums, and propaganda in place of lively discourse (as merrily submitted above).

Comment on Selective Focus: Sanctuary by Herzog

Kip, I think he said sanctuary, not masterbatorium. Jesus. I feel dirty now. Hope you didn’t pay good money to enter this dude’s sin-bin. Then again, I suppose recompense of a 30 pack of Schlitz was probably just-rewards for securing this monume...

Comment on Selective Focus: Sanctuary by heysme

“where you feel secure and able to be your best self, and supportive even when you occasionally fall shy of that measure”
Such a brilliant way to describe one’s sanctuary!

Comment on Anthony Bennett – “Natural Disaster” (live on The PlayList) by Karen

One of my favorite songwriters! Happy to see it posted here on PDD. Cheers!

Comment on Superior Siren – “Leone” by bslater17

Beautiful. Hope Sandoval meets Cat Power.

Comment on “A bat flew into my car and bit my hand.” by rhetoricguy@gmail.com

No sentence above indicated that testing is a replacement for treatment, and certainly, nothing on this blog constitutes medical advice.

Comment on Tenancy Questions: Pets, etc. by Rae

Simply ask if they can go month-to-month. I was on a one-year lease and then proceeded on month-to-month for the next eight years. My landlord was awesome, never raised my rent, and never asked me to sign another lease. Essentially, he was happy b...

Comment on “A bat flew into my car and bit my hand.” by Judas

Also, this is the second post you did on rabies that said test first, treat later. Not only is that wrong but it’s advice that could kill someone.

Comment on “A bat flew into my car and bit my hand.” by Judas

It takes something like 24 hours to test an animal for rabies and your best chance of survival is to get treated within six hours. I actually left the ER without the shots after being treated for wounds from an animal attack. When I called from t...

Comment on Tenancy Questions: Pets, etc. by Nobody

Have the friend review the lease. Sometimes they have a provision that addresses if you stay (it may convert to a month-to-month with a bump in rent or something). If not, fresh baked goods and a smile is always persuasive. If friend has been a g...

Comment on The hunt for a wireless provider in Duluth by bikeshox13

Charter isn’t terrible, I think I’m only at $39 a month for 60 meg speeds. Bob L, might want to call and get a better rate!

Comment on The hunt for a wireless provider in Duluth by aluminumpork

@BOB L: I don’t think Clearwire is selling service to new customers anymore. Clearwire became Clear and merged with Sprint, and Sprint is saying that it is no longer selling Clear service.

Comment on Van Halen at Duluth Arena, 1978 and ’79 by Swan

Better late than ever, but VH ticket stub, September 25, 1979.

Comment on The hunt for a wireless provider in Duluth by Bob L

Think twice about going with Clearwire! Unless they have improved considerably in the past couple of years. Speed is very poor … it would take 15-30 minutes to download a song! Speed is great with Charter but you have to pay big bucks for just one...

Comment on This Week: Bigfoot, Little Big Town and more by kelseymarier

I’ve seen Little Big Town perform at WeFest country music festival in Detroit Lakes and they were awesome! They are great live so if you’re a country fan, I would definitely recommend going to the concert at Amsoil Arena this Thursday.

Comment on The hunt for a wireless provider in Duluth by aluminumpork

I take that back, they no longer have synchronous speeds for residential. Fastest is 20x10; still not bad.

Comment on The hunt for a wireless provider in Duluth by aluminumpork

Airfiber and Compudyne both offer wireless service. I’m not sure if Compudyne does any residential service or not, but I know Airfiber does. I’ve heard mostly positive things about Airfiber; good synchronous speeds!

Comment on “I thought I got this at a wrestling convention in Duluth” by GTR

What episode is that? I have recently rediscovered NE due to some oddball on Facebook who started a Facebook page with quotes… and I did like the page (ahem).

Comment on Banner Photo Info: Where’s the Party? by Paul Lundgren

The Duluth News Tribune estimated 15,000 Swedes would be on hand for the celebration, sponsored by the Duluth Swedish-American League.

The park has been gayly decorated by members of the league with American and Swedish flags and colored lights....

I ran into his mother a few times when I lived in Bemidji. She was extremely proud of her son. This is the only reason I would ever know this.

Comment on “I thought I got this at a wrestling convention in Duluth” by Herzog

How in christ do you guys go that deep on your useless Northern Exposure trivia? No shame either.

Is Jess Lange’s ref to Duluth in Postman Always Rings Twice on the master list? Really it comes up all the time though, I’ve lost track, must be h...

Comment on The Boomchucks – “Antidote” by jamie

Thanks PDD for posting the new song! This video is all about Sacred Heart Music Center and all the great music that gets made around here. So if you know anyone who worked on these records, share the video with ‘em!

Comment on “I thought I got this at a wrestling convention in Duluth” by edgeways

Worth noting too that John Falsey (one of the creators of the show) attended the Iowa Writers Workshop, so was pretty regional
