Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on Pornography, or, “Worst First Dates” by BadCat!

Ahh, I see that now. I retract my snark. 🙂

Comment on Uber poised to enter Duluth market by Paul Lundgren

Update from the Duluth News Tribune:

Uber, Lyft in Duluth in April at earliest

The rideshare companies have Duluth on their radar and could start service here this year, but first the city needs to get its regulations on the books — something that...

Comment on Video Archive: Umbrella ice sailing on Lake Superior by vicarious

Hey, that’s me! And the dearly departed Boodog 2000…

How random.

Comment on Pornography, or, “Worst First Dates” by Paul Lundgren

I think you misinterpreted that, BadCat. Herzog wasn’t blaming Anna’s essay for anything. He was praising it. But that didn’t totally make him feel like himself, so in the process he decided to criticize Perfect Duluth Day in general, suggesting A...

Comment on Pornography, or, “Worst First Dates” by BadCat!

Funny story -- thanks for sharing.

Also -- just when you thought Herzog couldn’t dig deeper in personal attacks, here he comes to blame the demise of the blog on one woman’s personal essay. Stay classy dude, stay classy.
And by “stay classy,” I me...

Comment on Answer eleven questions, potentially win $100 by Paul Lundgren

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner in the drawing for the $100 prize. Drinks are on Steve Wick of Duluth the next time you see him.

The PDD Marketing Weasel thanks Steve and everyone who participated, and promises to crawl back into his cubic...

Comment on Pornography, or, “Worst First Dates” by Helmut Flaag

Jesus, just when you thought PDD couldn’t get any more boring Anna comes in for the save.

Comment on Big Jig Ice Fishing Contest 2017 by Paul Lundgren

Ah, I see. So they are different events, but both are affiliated with Winterfest.

Comment on Big Jig Ice Fishing Contest 2017 by TimK

“Cut a hole in the ice and wet a line in the United Sportsmen and Big Jig Ice Fishing Tournaments”

Comment on Big Jig Ice Fishing Contest 2017 by Paul Lundgren

I do not think the Big Jig is related to Winterfest; it was put on by UMD and last year the 16th annual Big Jig was sponsored by Subway.

Winterfest had a different fishing event — the United Northern Sportsman Ice Fishing Contest.

Winterfest annou...

Comment on Big Jig Ice Fishing Contest 2017 by kerc

Is that why there’s no medallion hunt this year?

Comment on Old Cemetery by cageyjay

An article and photographs can be found in Fritzen, John, Fond du Lac and Jay Cook Park, July 1978, St. Louis Historical Society, pp. 38-39 in a section called Indian Cemetery.

One of the printed photographs is shows how the Cemetary appeared in ...

Comment on Big Jig Ice Fishing Contest 2017 by TimK

It could be because Big Jig has been part of Winterfest and the corporate sponsor was Red Rock Radio — which was bought out by Midwest Communications in August. Perhaps the new corporate masters weren’t interested?

Comment on What is this brick pillar in the sidewalk? by DECk37

Looks like there was at least 4 of these, one every 2 blocks or so in the west end. Looking at Google Street View, it appears they were removed sometime after 2008 when redoing the sidewalks as by 2012 all but the one featured here are gone.

Comment on Tuesday at Lutsen by Cory Fechner

Let’s throw this way back to Lutsen 9 years ago before action cams were a thang.

Comment on When principals tried to run Mötley Crüe out of Duluth by TimK

They would’ve gotten away with it, too if it wasn’t for those meddlesome kids.

Comment on Video: Full moon drifting through Aerial Lift Bridge by Paul Lundgren

Here’s a funky hyperlapse shot by Adam Hennen yesterday. Because it’s an auto-playing GIF we won’t post it separately where it would show up on PDD’s home page, but it seems to go nicely as a bonus feature to this post.

Comment on Fairmount Elementary School Class Photos by Paul Lundgren

Interesting. Since the transition of black-and-white to color film was happening, the photographer probably shot photos of each class using both kinds of film — one so there would be an archive version similar to the older photos (which tended to ...

Comment on Fairmount Elementary School Class Photos by wildknits

Grade 5 1967 and 1968 are the same class. The only difference is one is in color, the other not (well and the kids moved a bit as the different shots were taken). Since the one photo is dated I am guessing it’s really the class of ’67.

Comment on Dead Man Winter – “Destroyer” by Helmut Flaag

My wife was describing the intensive make-up required on Beyonce’s boobs to make them appear synthetic as I faded into a deep abiding depression over American culture.

Comment on Dead Man Winter – “Destroyer” by Helmut Flaag

Good Lord this was tedious. I can’t unsee a number of these images now. Felt like Frank was hoping it would end swiftly too so he could get some more shots of himself smoking. Let this be a lesson to you kids about the devastating effects of ente...

Comment on Earth Rider Brewing coming to Superior by Special K

Is it just me, or does Tim Nelson look like Donald Sutherland with less white hair?

Comment on Dead Man Winter – “Destroyer” by Paul Lundgren

Thanks for noting the slip up, John. The post now correctly indicates Pizza Luce as the concert venue.

Comment on Dead Man Winter – “Destroyer” by john

The gig is at Luce, not Red Herring.

Refreshing to see a band/artist focus on others instead of themselves/himself.

Also kind of reminds me of George Michael’s “Faith” video for no real good reason (though only George is in that video).

Comment on Nifty: Constitutional amendment providing gender equality under the law by David Beard

Hi, Ray. I hope you can have some conversations with trusted friends about the nature of gender identity. We don’t know each other, so I’m not that trusted friend. But I hope it is possible that you have someone in your life with whom you can disc...

Comment on No Education in Your Violence by Helmut Flaag

God I miss the institution. Thank you may I have another…

Comment on Nifty: Constitutional amendment providing gender equality under the law by Ray Marshall

I misread that! If it is “half price for women night” at the bar and a person changes their gender regularly will a person need to carry two I’d cards?

Comment on Nifty: Constitutional amendment providing gender equality under the law by Ray Marshall

What proof will a voter need? What if a voter need if gender changes regularly?

Comment on No Education in Your Violence by TimK

In a perfect world, we would have the tools to handle whatever is thrown our way. Or maybe in a perfect world, nothing gets thrown at us.

Comment on Selective Focus: Carrie Schaefer by ElPete

As one who’s been a graphic designer for a long time, I also love these designs. Warm & cozy tones evoke a sense of home & comfort. The rhythm of Lake Superior Print with the unexpected use of Lake Superior made me smile.

Comment on Selective Focus: Carrie Schaefer by tashakdesign

I love her designs! The Moose Fox Bear illustration is currently hanging in my dining room 🙂

Comment on R.I.P. St. Margaret Mary Church of Morgan Park by woody

I concur, this was another example of the diocese of Duluth not valuing the role that they play in Duluth’s heritage and community. We saw this before with the threat of demolition to St. Peter’s Church. This church was part of the original mast...
