Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Thank you very much for posting this. I’ve never seen American Indian culture captured by motion pictures. When was this filmed? Is this documentary footage or was it enacted in such a way as to capture the flavour of Indian life for the filmma...
I’d be interested to know what you find. I teach Minnesota History and ask my students to write a proposal for a historical marker that might theoretically be installed at some local site — so I’m always interested in quality source material pert...
It’s interesting that the publisher of a weekly newspaper has purchased the West, because the founder of the theater is considered a “godfather” of another Duluth weekly.
Clarence W. Kaake was born and raised in Canada and came to...
There are always a lot of calendars, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen a preview video for one.
“Inspirations: Lake Superior Region” includes 12 photographs of northern Minnesota by Gary Fiedler and Dawn LaPointe of Radiant Spirit Gall...
These guys are adorable. Nicely done! I especially like the wheelbarrows full of beer and accordians. Now will you make a video for their outhouse song, please?
I’m not sure I have a complete grasp of what the phrase “copyright-awesome” implies, but here is my attempt at answering the question.
Posting stuff from old periodicals to random websites is a fuzzy subject in terms of copyright infringement. Le...
Just watching this makes my knees ache! You know you are getting old when you keep saying to yourself while watching this, “20 years from now they will regret that”. Ahhh youth!
This is the only place in town that I am aware of that has falafel & I am stoked. I’ll have to try one this week.
I wonder if Brandon, Dylan, and the gang will hang out with Nat after school.
The story about how that exhibit came together is pretty great too.

Minneapolis-based bookstore Birchbark Books is collecting donations to supply Defenders of the Water School with curricular materials and Lakota language texts. It is a touching effort championed by Minnesotan author Louise Erdrich to do just as U...
Well you could start by recycling your plastic bags? Jesus … Whether or not they get recycled is another thing, but at least they’re all in the same spot. Americans don’t seem to be aware the oil and gas industry produces and profits from plastic,...
It looks to be Stadium Lanes as they had 24 lanes and also used Brunswick equipment.
We have a Brian Barber original hanging in our home -- it gets more kudos than the Gindy’s or other locally produced pieces. Someday when I’m done paying for my kids [braces, equipment, lessons, tuition …] I’d like to commission a family portrait...
Correct. That is fixed now. Thanks!
Yes! Taking the 24 hour news cycle to its logical conclusion, a self interview! Once again, PDD breaks new journalistic ground. Comprehensive but IMHO, you could have probed yourself deeper… In all seriousness, thank you Brian for setting the art...

Very interesting! I never knew that animation was done locally.
I like your style.
Not strictly Duluth-related, but a great gift for anyone who appreciates Minnesota music, Heyday is photographer Daniel Corrigan’s look back at 35 years of defining what the Minneapolis scene looked like. $34.95, published by the MN Historical Soc...
This Saturday and Sunday, Dec 3rd and 4th will be the Duluth Winter Village at Glensheen. Over 30 local vendors on the grounds at Glensheen.

Probably would’ve been good enough for a few Syrian refugees.
This is more of a side comment: Brents Biffies or whatever service should paint all their biffies like that. Because how awesome would it be to use the facilities and time/space travel?
88th Avenue West and Concord Street, across from the SA convenience store.
I was social media suckered by a photoshop and some conniving nerd friends?
Another good story from the trail
