This Week's (Belated) Shameless Budgeteer Plug: Chester Bowl, its ski jumps and Cloud Cult (baby!)

I do apologize for getting this out so late, but yesterday I was busy walking six miles on Park Point for the neighborhood's annual -- and, let's be honest, awesome -- rummage sale.

Here's what you won't be reading until 5 p.m. tonight, when the sales officially close:

"Chester Bowl's Ski Jumps: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" -- In addition to a link to my "Discover Duluth: Chester Bowl" photos (which I'm quite proud), this story features interviews with 1952 Duluth Olympian George Hovland (who is quite funny) and X-communication publisher Tony Dierckins, who is also quite funny ... that is, when he's not all worked up about the possible dismantling of Chester Bowl's historic ski jumps.

Finally*, I proudly present "Music for the Green Revolution," a lengthy Q-and-A with Mr. Cloud Cult, Craig Minowa. He was fascinating to talk to -- topics ranged from staying "green" on the road, MTV's sudden interest in what he's up to and the unfortunate passing of his 2-year-old son, Kaidin -- so hopefully some of that translates to the written word.


*Apparently it was the week of monster stories....
