TaulPaul Runs Into Morgan Spurlock

...on a JetBlue flight out of JFK. Notice the airline logo on his jacket. The dude is serious about promoting his new movie literally everywhere.

National Geographic wants you to Visit Minneapolis

Yes they do! 10 Best Trips of Summer 2011 list that was released by editors of National Geographic Traveler puts Minneapolis at number 4.

A pedestrian-and-pedal-friendly downtown and welcoming Midwestern vibe make it easy for first-time visitors to quickly feel at home in Minneapolis. Snow can fall here from October to April, so the arrival of warm weather launches a full throttle, June-August celebration of arts, music, and cultural festivals (check out the Minneapolis Aquatennial, July 16-24); farmers markets (17); and fan-friendly Minnesota Twins baseball (played downtown at Target Field—ranked the top sports stadium in North America by ESPN The Magazine). Survey the vibrant scene from the new CRAVE restaurant rooftop patio near the State Theatre, then grab a bike at the nearest Nice Ride Minnesota kiosk ($5 plus trip fees) and cruise all or part of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a 50-mile urban trail loop.

Is this great or what?

Who can blame him?

Just do it.


Hey, it's a fair warning.

We've seen multiple tweets about this mosh pit. Has Lecky survived? Anybody?

This is a tough one.

That's some old fashioned Easter fun.


This according to Twitter, went really well.

Raise you hand if you did exactly the same thing.


Not shocking.

Duran Duran and the Pixies stopped by.. The shows went really well.

.. except for this. And the fact that Simon Le Bon tweeted Minneapolis has crappy food.
