Comment on History of Itasca: Part 1 by Kodiak

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...

Comment on Thrift Store Finds: Last Ride on the Incline by The Big E

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...

Comment on Reader publisher buys former West Theater by Paul Lundgren

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.

Some background:

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.

Comment on Dance Attic – “Startin’ a Fire with You” by ms dean

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?

Comment on Thrift Store Finds: Last Ride on the Incline by Paul Lundgren

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...

Comment on Video Archive: Le Parkour Duluth by runningman

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!

Comment on Historical Trauma and Standing Rock by Helmut Flaag

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,...

Comment on Mystery Photo #46: Duluth-area Bowling Alley by bubacz

It looks to be Stadium Lanes as they had 24 lanes and also used Brunswick equipment.

Comment on Selective Focus: Brian Barber by duluth_bishop

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...

Comment on Selective Focus: Brian Barber by Chris

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...

Comment on Selective Focus: Brian Barber by Rae

Very interesting! I never knew that animation was done locally.

I like your style.

Comment on PDD Gift Guide 2016 by Brian Barber

I’d overdose on my prescription painkillers too if I voted for Trump.

Comment on Derelict West Duluth church bites dust by Helmut Flaag

Probably would’ve been good enough for a few Syrian refugees.

Comment on An Unexpected Arrival in Morgan Park by kerc

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?

Comment on An Unexpected Arrival in Morgan Park by Ryan Andersen

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?
