Goodbye, Minneapolis
Posted at 12:41 PM


I’VE NEVER BEEN SHY ABOUT THIS SENTIMENT: I love Minneapolis. My first couple weeks there were a little weird back in the fall of 1998, but that was just the “break-in” period. It’s always weird starting over somewhere. But I settled in fast and started loving that town. The record stores, the music venues, the diners, the junk stores…and damn, all these years later I still pine for those fun days.

I don’t like leaving Minneapolis. Always makes me sad as hell.

THANK YOU, BUDDY: And holy shit, the biggest, hairiest “Thank You” I can muster up needs to go directly to the head of Jon Baugh. Seriously. Thank you for believing in the DDC, man. All these years. One of Minnesota’s FINEST citizens…with the highest of marks in the following categories: Skateboarding, Family, Creative Chops, Cool Collections, Wit, Menswear, Outerwear and Conversation. My buddy. Thanks, Jon. So much. The guy behind a beautiful family and this!
