Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Ahh, I see that now. I retract my snark. 🙂
Update from the Duluth News Tribune:
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...
Hey, that’s me! And the dearly departed Boodog 2000…
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...
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...
Well said, and well written!
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...
Jesus, just when you thought PDD couldn’t get any more boring Anna comes in for the save.
Ah, I see. So they are different events, but both are affiliated with Winterfest.
“Cut a hole in the ice and wet a line in the United Sportsmen and Big Jig Ice Fishing Tournaments”
Is that why there’s no medallion hunt this year?
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 ...
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?
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.
Let’s throw this way back to Lutsen 9 years ago before action cams were a thang.
They would’ve gotten away with it, too if it wasn’t for those meddlesome kids.
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.
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 ...
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.
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.
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...
Is it just me, or does Tim Nelson look like Donald Sutherland with less white hair?
Thanks for noting the slip up, John. The post now correctly indicates Pizza Luce as the concert venue.
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)....
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...
God I miss the institution. Thank you may I have another…
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?
What proof will a voter need? What if a voter need if gender changes regularly?
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.
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.
@cara, will be on the ridge for sure
I love her designs! The Moose Fox Bear illustration is currently hanging in my dining room 🙂
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...
