Also Minnesota is known as the land of 10,000 lakes – it’s on our license plates even. Actually we have closer to 12,000.

But look at a Google Map of Minneapolis. We have lots of lakes for a metropolitan area.


No GoT this week either? Wtf!

Andrew James

Yeah sorry – very limited GoT next episode too. I think we’ll probably talk a bit about it after the season finale.

After travelling for nearly 4 weeks, I just got back and had 4 hours of TV to watch. I binged it recently, and Binging doesn’t really allow for the kind of detailed conversations we typically have under normal circumstances on the show. We’ll see what happens for the remaining 2 episodes this season in terms of Cinecast segment.

Kurt, you were in Dartmouth and didn’t come to my restaurant…and to think I used you guys as a majour reference when we did our “Movies of 1984” menu a couple years ago! Kidding, glad you had a great time!

Kurt Halfyard

Dang! What is your restaurant? We were in Battery Park and T.I.B.S. in terms of eating out, but we were treated to some fine Lobsters and steamed mussels at a friends parents house.

Kurt Halfyard

If your place is PICNIC AT DART I’m sorry to have missed it, the photos of the food and place look amazing.

Allan McPherson

Ha! Yeah, that’s me. If you had dropped by I know I would have recognized your voice…would have bought you a round just for the “Romancing the Stone” love! Not to mention The Prisoner…

Kurt Halfyard

There is a good chance I will be in Dartmouth again in the near future, I will definitely look you guys up! Cheers, K.
