More daze


Sorry about the long hiatus between posts -- I promise to be a little better. Here are a few nuggets of Minneapolis holiday surrealism to make up for my neglect.

Mmmm... nothing else seems to match the greasy, sleazy magic of the State Fair. All of my old favorites were there, as was the recently-revived sideshow. I ate fried cheese curds, pet some goats and beautiful dogs, and had a carny attempt to sell me drugs. Times like these make me think there's still hope for America.

The Fort Garry

Yes, Triskaidekaphobia Jones, the room numbers from my earlier post were located in the Fort Garry. How sweet that the Canadians, now that 911 has associations with terrorism and tragedy, chose to violate the longer-standing taboo against rooms with the number 13. Here are a few more views of one of my favorite hotels.

Here's local cable access legend Dr. Sphincter in a rare live performance -- a tribute to his favorite adhesive. (Thanks to YouTube user mschonwe for the clip)
