So It Goes in SoMinn: FOOD

September 13, 2017

The term “foodie” is not a new one. It has its roots, and a couple of years ago it hit us hard. We try to forget about it, but it reveals its bizarre self in stints. Some view it as a person who simply enjoys the preparation and presentation of food. Others are hobbyists, some…Read More

Seven Reasons Why Everyone Should Watch GLOW

September 8, 2017

Earlier this summer, Netflix released ten episodes of a little show called GLOW. It’s about women’s professional wrestling, a topic that would (and should) have any sane person a little skeptical. But I’m here to convince you to put your skepticism aside, ladies and gentleman, because GLOW is one of the best new shows I’ve…Read More

THE PHILM COLUMN: Fall Film Preview

September 6, 2017

Can you see that? The leaves hinting at a change in color. Can you feel that? The warmth of the hot August sun beginning to evaporate. Can you hear that? The cries of Minnesotans at the familiar realization that summer is ALREADY over. But as the temperatures drop and the autumn apologists start claiming “this…Read More

Imagine Dragons-Evolve Album Review

August 31, 2017

Imagine Dragons grow up to arrive as a band with a future legacy on their powerful third album. Album Grade: B- “Believer” is the most important song Imagine Dragons have yet to release.  Let me say that again so the message is 100 percent clear – “Believer” is THE most important song Imagine Dragons have…Read More

Mollywood BLVD: Molly at the Movies

August 28, 2017

I’d like to reflect on my summer at the movies with my first – sort-of — movie review piece. Super hero movies rule Hollywood right now, for better or worse. And while I will blindly admit that the Marvel Universe far exceeds DC in both quality and quantity, I won’t pretend that I am a…Read More

Who had it worse: Harlots or Handmaids?

July 20, 2017

  History has not always been kind to women, from refusing us the right to vote, to arranged marriage, to ridiculous societal expectations. Though I grew up often wistfully wishing I had been born in another era, the truth is (with a few fashion exceptions), most other time periods would’ve been horrible to live during.In…Read More

Conquering that damn Ninja Course

July 19, 2017

  Let me tell you a story of how I got my butt kicked by a mere “obstacle course.” Now, I consider myself to be a fairly athletic individual. I grew up playing multiple sports and still exercise daily. I’m one of those people who loves to try the new and exciting fitness fads just…Read More

Take the damn trip

July 19, 2017

I had this trip planned for over five years. If any of you read it, you’ll recall my June column being a confusing mixture of thoughts I had prior to finally taking this trip. It was a sort of prequel to this month’s musings. The trip was to drive from my current home of southern…Read More

For many, the explosion of craft brewing in recent years has represented a growth in opportunity, an expansion of choice, or simply an exciting time to drink beer. But for some – like big-name regional and national brands – the changes have meant stiff, and perhaps unwanted, competition in the marketplace.Craft brewing making impact on…Read More
