    Amazing place to visit, kinda crummy place to live.


    (Also, two things. One, it took me far too long to realize what MTM meant. So read into that everything you possibly can.

    And two, I agree. Probably. Because I’ve never seen MTM, keep reading into that, but TV and movie depictions are never right. Except Grumpy Old Men, Coach, and Mighty Ducks, they all but nailed it.)
    The geography of the Mighty Ducks is dead on! :-D Especially #2, where they rollerblade from Mpls to St. Paul on their way to the MoA.

          NYC is the greatest city in the world to live in... if you have 10 million dollars.

          For anybody else I don't recommend it. It's very cool, but it's just incredibly irritating to do anything. The population density turns average people into caged rats, it's the worst place for unrelenting, banging commercialism, and there is no peace.

          But credit where it's due, it also has the largest number of incredibly smart and interesting people and mind-blowingly beautiful women on the planet. You just need millions and millions of dollars to insulate yourself from contact with the commoners, who are horrible.

            MTM was the only popular culture connection I could think of for Minneapolis.

            I think of the Mighty Ducks as Edina and some non-specified, probably non-existent, diverse (?), poor 8 Mile suburb.

                  • Wait. Gatsby is from some jerkwater Minnesota town, right? Or maybe Fitzgerald himself was?

                    Anyway, this is my full list of cultural connotations of Minnesota:

                    1. Guy Noir
                    2. Sue Ann Nivens
                    3. Dino Ciccarelli
                    4. Prince
                    5. Dylan
                    6. That band that played drunk
                    7. Is St. Olaf or McMaster (?) in Minnesota? If so, then them.

                                Funny throughout. But it was jarring to see and hear a president.
