If you ever listen to Garrison Keillor you know that one of the "sponsors" of Prairie Home Companion is ketchup. I *love* these ads...they just crack me up! Make sure you add a good northern Iowa/Minnesota accent to this when you read it. Who may not be funny at all if you've never heard it on the radio :-P


SS: Jim what's gotten into you this morning? You're so-loopy.


TR: I in that dentist's chair, looking at the X-rays of all my impending cavities, and I thought, life is short. It's meant to be enjoyed.


SS: You're enjoying my toast, is what you're doing, Jim.


TR: Lighten up, Barb.


SS: Jim, I wonder if you've been getting enough ketchup.


TR: Ketchup, Barb?


SS: Ketchup contains natural mellowing agents that help you see that life is ok just as it is. With or without jokes.


TR: Sounds good, Barb. Did you hear about the —


SS: Yes, I did, Jim. Many times.


Rich Dworsky (SINGS):

These are the good times,

If we persevere.

Prosperity is coming.

All we need to fear is fear.

Life is flowing

Like ketchup in your beer.


Garrison Keillor: Ketchup, for the good times


RD: Ketchup...ketchup...ketchup...

Chris Thile was called a prodigy when he was a kid, and a virtuoso when he got older. He's universally respected now for not only mastering traditional string music, but for taking it to new and exciting places-first as a solo performer, then with Nickle Creek, then with Punch Brothers, then with a series of projects with the likes of Edgar Meyer, Yo-Yo Ma, and more. He's performed and recorded with everyone from Dolly Parton to the Chieftains. In addition to his brilliant playing and writing, his quick wit and winning personality has opened the door for him to take over as host of A Prairie Home Companion, the public radio institution led for the last 40+ years by the legendary Garrison Keillor, when Keillor retires at the end of summer 2016.

I gave my fiancee tickets to a live performance of A Prairie Home Companion for Christmas, but I didn't want to give her a print-out of the ugly ticketmaster PDF tickets, so I designed a fake, but prettier version for her to open up on Christmas!

This is a cool old abandoned farm house I've been wanting to shoot for years. I finally made myself stop and photograph the thing this past weekend. Very glad I did, however the Sneffels range is just to the left of this photo, and I'm a little bummed I couldn't get it in the frame.

St Paul is the smaller of Minnesota's "Twin Cities," and many people may assume because of that that it is lesser. This is not the case. While Minneapolis plays the role of Minnesota's cosmopolitan metropolis, St Paul epitomizes the hearty, down to earth spirit of the upper midwest. The city also hosts many of Minnesota's most iconic and beloved events, traditions, and places: The Prairie Home Companion, Ice Castles, The Winter Carnival, the MN State Fair, the MN Science Museum, MN Public Radio, and much more.


It's true, St Paul's skyline is modest in comparison to that of Minneapolis, but this is not due to slower economic growth, this is due to the approach for Runway 22 at the MSP International Airport flying directly over downtown. This may result in fewer shiny tall buildings, but it also has meant the preservation of the old classic brick and stone buildings that made the city what it is.


Not to mention, St Paul will be getting Light Rail service in 2014! (Remind me to change this in 3 years..haha).

I always make a point to look up when I'm at a show, museum, or any place of significant size. Usually there is something spectacular on the ceiling that otherwise goes unnoticed.

This photo was featured in "The Tao of Cow" on SOF Observed.
