Music Resource Center in Duluth?

RecordingSession448957Duluth’s Crystal Pelkey traveled to Charlottesville, Va., in June to research the operations of the Music Resource Center there. She’s been exploring the possibility of creating an MRC branch in Duluth.

Crystal will present her Music Resource Center research on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 5:30 p.m., at the Teatro Zuccone theater, 222 E. Superior St.

Founded by John Hornsby in 1993, with initial financial support by the Dave Matthews Band, the Music Resource Center is a state-of-the-art facility where teens learn the latest technology in the music industry and participate in every phase of music production and performance.

If you are interested in this project, here’s your chance to find out more and become involved in the next steps of the process.

teens?

But they aren't interested in anything but text-messaging.

An exciting concept! If you'd like to see it currently in action, come and have one of the students who run Michigan St. Productions, our internet radio station or the HCIS theater give you a tour. Here's a short produced by media students at HCIS, A PUBLIC high school serving Duluth and N. MN.

Way to go, Crystal. I think that's awesome. 

And on a completely different note:
I was just googling something Duluth-related and came across a PDD post from years back. Might I say it was HILARIOUS. PDD is not so funny any more. More, um, curmudgeon-y.

The MRC acronym is already used in Duluth; means the Materials Recovery Center (WLSSD, old dump site). Hope they can find a different name...?

Hey now, cranky gun obsession can be a form of artistic expression too.

The funny thing is, it was mostly the same people contributing. Hmm, you've all got more of a city council tone now. Could be good, but could also be...?

Longing for the past and lamenting change, while complaining about curmudgeon-ry: now that is a little bit hilarious, no?  No snark intended, just caught the irony.

I've noticed idealists tend to curmudgeonize as they get older. It's what we do.  PDD could replace all the commentators when they reach a certain age.  Keep it all shiny, like Menudo.

I don't think that longing for the past or lamenting change equates a curmudgeon. The meaning of a curmudgeon is a difficult, cantankerous person.  

It is just very interesting when you look at the progression of this blog, all blogs or platforms of expression and communication. The posts used to be laugh out loud funny, rude, crude, sometimes downright jaw-dropping. There has been the alienation of some, toning down of others and welcoming of others still. It's not to say it is a bad thing. I see it as a compliment to those who started it. It has evolved, and now serves a larger purpose to the community, but which is always better than dying.

I'm curious, cando. Which PDD post was it?
