Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on Postcards from the Wreck of the Steamer Crescent City by michigander

Greetings from northern Michigan. I was cleaning out old bookmarks and remembered this blog. I don’t know how many people look at these posts anymore but I hope you keep posting.

Comment on Lake Avenue Loafers by Paul Lundgren

This just in: there was a logo.

Also, members were apparently known to make fun of their own LAL acronym, calling themselves Lake Avenue Lovers and, when they got older, the Lake Avenue Leakers.

Comment on Mayo Clinic Mask Study by Helmut Flaag

Vicarious, I think your motherboard may have imploded. Or it could be a bad fuse or capacitor. Check the connections.

Dave, tell me everything you understand about the viruses and vaccines.

Comment on Mayo Clinic Mask Study by vicarious

Huh, why is there a government-mandated Vaccine Injury Fund?

Weird, right Dave?

Weird.

Comment on Mayo Clinic Mask Study by vicarious

Maybe a tiny bit of “Vaccine Messiah” background would be helpful.

Just thinking out loud.

How is this fear-based propaganda Duluth-centric?

Comment on PDD Gift Guide 2020 by Paul Lundgren

It wouldn’t be the PDD Gift Guide without at least one mention of a local photographer’s wall calendar. Ryan Tischer brings the Lake Superior region to into focus with his 28-page 11x17-inch 2021 day tracker. It’s printed on gloss paper and featu...

Comment on Some of My Indie Rock Guitar Goddess She-roes by Jim Richardson (aka Lake Superior Aquaman)

Helmut — Thanks for commenting. The careful reader will note I stated the list was not comprehensive, and promised more to come. The set of everyone I failed to mention is infinite. As for Kim Deal and the Pixies, when she left the band I become m...

Comment on PDD Gift Guide 2020 by Paul Lundgren

The array of books released in 2020 is worth a second callout. Tony Dierckins offers the Duluthiest option with a biography of the city. There are cookbooks, children’s books, inspirational books, poetry books … even a story told by wolves.

Comment on Some of My Indie Rock Guitar Goddess She-roes by Helmut Flaag

I couldn’t help but take issue with your Pixies comment, seeing that Francis Black wrote all their songs minus one. She was obviously the omega balls of that outfit. Now if you’d said Deal was the cornerstone of The Breeders, this would be another...

Hamptonio -- You’re welcome! Here’s to lots of styles~

Vicarious -- I have a lot to say about the Deal twins and I will.

Comment on Duluth’s Retro Antique Mall by Paul Lundgren

Comment on Some of My Indie Rock Guitar Goddess She-roes by vicarious

Kim Deal? I think you meant Kelley Deal, who came to Minnesota to sober up at Hazelden in the 1990s and fronted the Kelley Deal 6000 for about two weeks before things fell apart again. Anyway, her drummer, Nick Hook, whose dad was probably a CIA d...

Thanks for sharing those! Quite a range of styles.

Comment on Duluth Junkyard in 1937 by Buzzard

I’m a responsible drinker and take my empties for responsible recycle. Also a location for same product in the photo, my view would indicate that the local repurposer of iron works has not changed since the beginning of fire.

Comment on Duluth Junkyard in 1937 by dulutherati

I’m pretty sure thats just a contemporary picture of my dad’s garage.

Comment on R.I.P. Lester Park Elementary by Jeanne Minor

I have classroom pictures 1960-1965.

Comment on Aerial View of Pastoret Terrace by dbrewing

I’ve personally seen this building on fire three times.

Comment on Ripped at the Anchor Bar in 2000 by Bill Nash

Longtime fan of Slim’s writing. So glad Paul has seen fit to re-publish some of his columns. I agree with everything he said, and think that the Anchor is as much a local treasure as anything the Twin Ports has to offer. Thanks for the article, an...

Comment on RiverWest project near Spirit Mountain wins road approval by Paul Lundgren

Aerial photo (above) and video (below) from Nov. 10 of site preparation for the project. (Via Liftoff Aerials)

Comment on Battery of a police officer or excessive force arrest? Here we go again. by Jerome Davis

He will have to answer to God indeed! Christian cops need to speak out against this injustice! As quiet as it’s kept, many of them are! We just don’t see it!

Comment on Makwa Ziibiins Miikana: Bear Creek Trail to Wisconsin Point by Dave Sorensen

Sounds like they built a bridge across that creek since I was there last. That’s great.

Comment on Eric Thiegs – “Duluth” by Cecile Richardson

Eric has ties to Minnesota and was once in a band in the Twin Cities. He is chief revenue officer and partner at National Gift Card. According to LinkedIn, someone I know knows someone who knows him.

His is also president and CEO of Stage of Life...

Comment on Stormy or Calm by Buzzard

Never underestimate the benefits of an editor.

Comment on Postcard from Duluth’s Lincoln Park in 1935 by Paul Lundgren

Yes, I think in each instance HBH1’s version might be the correct interpretation, or at least closer to correct than my attempts.

Comment on Postcard from Duluth’s Lincoln Park in 1935 by hbh1

Did C tell you we arrived safe and sound at 7pm.
