Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
There’s a march starting at 4:30 at the Civic Center. It will be heading in the direction of the above event, and a DFL event at Lake Place Park.
Hi Sam. I’m interested in learning more. My availability is a little spotty this summer, but it sounds like a fun project.
Update: The Duluth News Tribune reports American Spirit “floated free from the bottom” Sunday night “due to a water level rise in the harbor at about 10 p.m.”
Cool day for a Sting-ray story!
NBC Nightly News: “Ride down memory lane with classic bicycle celebration“
Artists at their finest.
Eight-years-later update via Duluth News Tribune: “Mayor dreams of replacing seldom-seen city flag“
Maybe, Michael, but the best pizza in the region is Ian’s.
I tried their “classic” today as a trial run, you know, test their signature pie. Poor distribution of ingredients was the first thing I noticed. There was nothing remarkable about the pizza, save that I was transported in time, to my 20s, when I ...
Correction, the owner of Treehouse records just went around telling folks he was in Husker Du. He never really was. I’m not sure why you would pretend yourself into a shitty band. But if you are going to lie, go big. Make up some real shit instead...
Ding Ding Ding- we have a winner! Malouski has identified the correct intersection where this example of creative vandalism can be seen.
East Skyline and N 8th Ave E
8th St & 9th Ave E?
Nope. Apologies for my filthy windshield.
21st East, just off the highway?
…the bar continues to rise…
The guest on episode #132 of the Duluth News Tribune’s Pressroom Podcast was former UMD hockey player Julianne “Montana” Vasichek, who is now the team’s strength and conditioning coach. She told her story about getting a liver transplant and her r...
‘Do you know that place from when I used to work at UMD and we would get ice cream (at the farmers market at UMD)?’
Yes! I don’t forget good ice cream so easily.
So there you have it. Right out of the mouth of a kid who was 9 or 10 when we were ta...
You know about Rolling Ruts, right?
Cinnamon Roll! I wonder what ever happened to him…
Comment on Five-star Customer Review of Richardson Brothers Duluth-based Amazon Kindle Book by bhall
This post is like a review of a review…so meta.
Beautifully curated, Paul.
“Pit Tone is Easier.” Wha?
Having made a feature film myself (which, by the way, crowdfunded alongside Will’s back when they were called Project Gaslight) I’d say you don’t need to think of directing as “climbing to the top” — hell, that attitude might even be hurtful!
“Youths fight Rivera effort to erase God.” It’s amazing that Geraldo was around back then.
Look at all that news! There’s a full day’s reading there.
Thanks for the giljunko introduction all those years ago. Changed my life. And the mixes were all very fine.
Hi, Ves. I happened upon your essay tonight and enjoyed this glimpse back into your life. Great writing on rabbits, parenting, and Duluth hillside life. Missing it all (and you) from BRNRD.
Thanks for adding the links and photos, Paul. One of the more interesting things I noticed in looking at all the old photos of Superior Street was the visibility of the sign for the Minnesotian, Duluth’s first newspaper. It’s just beyond the avenu...
I think everyone who commented above really solved this, but taking everyone’s suggestions together seems to give a rather clear answer.
Using Tony’s suggestion of looking in the MNreflection archives, this large panorama photo from 1870 clearly...
This should help. The documentary Lost Duluth (available on Youtube) uses a photo that is cropped differently but must have been taken at almost the exact same time and place as our mystery photo (all the construction debris in the street matches ...
This is great news!
