It took some doing, but you did it. Congratulations, you made it to Friday. Enjoy this sassy Prince gif.

Psycho Suzie’s is scheduled to open in new digs (the former Gabby’s, just down the street) on Monday. Too bad we missed the “Liquidation Sale” earlier this week.

Meet Minnesota’s “Face of the Tar Sands,” Elizabeth Sherman. I’m not sure I would want to be a tar sands face.

Don Shelby sucks as traffic reporter. Don’t give up your day job, Don! Oh, wait…

I also hear he’s not much of a food reviewer.

In the spirit of an Open Thread, I present: Krampus. Never heard of this until today.

No Minnesota connection here (except maybe Prince having been influenced by Hendrix) but it’s Dick Cavett’s birthday. During the summer of ’69 (Woodstock!), ABC put him on the late night schedule as a summer replacement and Cavett delivered some amazing interviews — most notably Jimi Hendrix a month before his Woodstock appearance, along with an impromptu performance of “Hear My Train A’Comin'” with the studio band.
“Do you consider yourself a discplined guy? Do you get up everyday and work ..”
“I try to get up everyday.”
Cavett, I think, was the Jimmy Kimmel of his day.

Jimmy Kimmel is a drunk loser from the neighborhood compared to Cavett, who’s still funny in his nytimes writing today.
also, krampus rules.

There is ALWAYS a Minnesota connection to everything and everyone, Noodle-san. In 1987, Dick Cavett hosted the “College Bowl World Series,” a quiz show for young eggheads, on the Disney Channel. The winning team was the Univeristy of Minnesota. According to Wikepedia, the Gophers have appeared in the quiz more than any other team.

Yeah, always a MN connection (not that I think everything here HAS to have a MN connection); for example, Krampus is part of Croation culture, and I think there are a fair number of Croatian-Americans in MN. Also, once I saw The Cramps at First Avenue. That’s another way Krampus is connected to MN!

@_taylor_: I was going to compare Cavett to Jimmy Fallon (e.g. comedy writer-performer to hosting his own show) but thought more highly of Cavett than that. And, yes, I would agree Cavett flew circles around any of the late-night guys … including Letterman … and could still do so.

Lazy Lightning offers a thoughtful look at a city that got some bad news recently, Eagan. I know the mayor (his day job used to be spokesperson for the American Cancer Society), the closing of the Lockheed plant was a hard blow to this suburb, once cited as one of the best towns in America to live in.
November 19, 2010 at 1:33 pm
@justpbob: I know someone who is — was — an employee there at Lockheed. Losing 1000 jobs just like that is a big blow for the community. But if limiting or reducing government spending is what the Tea Party and Republicans want, there will be more job losses like this around the defense industries as the DOD is forced to reduce its spending.
November 19, 2010 at 1:41 pm
To be far, even Robert Gates is calling for budget cuts, and the DOD likely has some fat/uneeded weapon systems to trim. Ratifying the START treaty with Russia would help reduce costs, too.

I meant fair, not far. Speaking of things military, we are sending out a special “tank you” to the Talaban.

I’m refurbishing and old snow blower that a coworker gave me, it’s all torn apart. While I’ve got it apart I got to thinking making I should paint all the plastic pieces that don’t move aren’t going to get too battered up.
So Electric Blue with yellow stroked white lightning bolts or Candy apple red with a gold flaked racing stripe?
How about blue with a white yeti?
November 19, 2010 at 3:29 pm
Candy apple red! It’ll scream 1974!
November 19, 2010 at 3:47 pm
Candy apple red.
November 19, 2010 at 3:57 pm
maybe something ala this
November 19, 2010 at 4:17 pm
That’s what I’m talking about!

@ryanl: When you finish with the Toro, you can tackle this baby. Or this one.
But, please, please, be careful.
This is potentially spiraling out of control into purchasing a higher throughput airbrush and painting something on the hood of my car.
November 19, 2010 at 5:01 pm
Painting flames on a grocery getter would be awesome!
November 19, 2010 at 5:09 pm
Pimp my cart.

Its a 91 ford escort…next year I am going for classic plates.
I don’t know if I want to mess with a numbers matching 91 scort…that could be a real money maker down the line.

It would be really weird if one of those formerly young eggheads read things on this site, wouldn’t it?
November 19, 2010 at 7:31 pm
@AgingEgghead: Yes, it sure would be a coinkadink.
November 20, 2010 at 8:16 pm
Alright I had to work with what Homer D. Poe had in rattle cans…sooooo Candied Saphire Blue it is.
I’ve got the base done currently, you can see where I am at currently here.
Now its either time to send the main panel to my brother to have him paint a white yeti or get some sign painters enamel and try my best attempt at Von Dutch’n some pin stripes on that sucker.
