Minneapolis: Citibank Cancels Foreclosure Auction of Minneapolis Mom’s Home

There’s power in the people, fighting the good fight. Some good news in a world of bad. A mother’s home was saved by protesting and getting Citibank to commit to loan modification. It seems lame to thank Citibank, because taking peoples’ homes away after giving out a bunch of terrible-idea loans over the past decade seems like a wholly dick move, and it is. Thankfully someone with half a brain over there in the banking industry did the right thing in letting this woman pay back the loan instead of taking her house.

Listen: Haphduzn & Dimitry Killstorm “Brand New Nostalgia”

“Skinny jeans, can you believe this shit?”

Take a listen and a look at Haphduzn & Dimitry Killstorm’s “Brand New Nostalgia”. It’s Minneapolis hip hop done crazy good. I don’t know Dimitry, but I have met Haphduzn (pronounced half dozen, I was confused for like a week at first) when he performed with my friend Illab as the fab duo Conflict of Interest. Super nice and super cool dudes, check everything out!

MPLS and St. Paul are the healthiest metro area in the country

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, MSP has got it goin’ ON in the fitness n’ health biz. And it’s true. There are so many bikers running stop signs and getting hit by cars. Blacking out from bike accidents fights carbs!

But fo real, kudos to all in MSP for keepin’ one healthy metro area.

Next: How about NO to the new stadium for the Vikings? We’re in a recession, HELLO! Wtf. We need another sports stadium like Kim Kardashian needs another televised and scripted wedding ceremony, like Lindsay Lohan needs free drugs, like Britney needs a shaved head again. NO.

Here’s what I say, MPLS government folky-folks:

More light rails! They give us better public transportation and even offer free rides on heavy drinking holidays with MillerCoors which is SO helpful and nice. Seriously. Thank you.

More dance clubs! Fitness at night baby!

Less sports stadiums. There are at least 5 that I can think of, and none of them are winning teams, like EVER. It doesn’t make any sense. The Metrodome is old, but come on. It’s a bad idea. That money could do something better for our community. You know it, I know it. Just, STOP it!

MSP is the healthiest metro in country, says American College of Sports Medicine – Minneapolis News – The Blotter.

Minneapolis 20 somethings: Get your hair did at JUUT in Uptown

Being a part-time gal in a full-priced world, it can sometimes be difficult to find reasonably priced services, such as getting your hair done. All I gotta say is roots were coming in and ends were straggly. Bad hair can ruin your day. So I asked around to hot girlfriends I know and was recommended the JUUT New Artists Academy in Uptown.

Let me start by saying this place is a great experience. You walk in and it’s almost trippy how attentive everyone is. I’m not used to strangers offering to take my coat and get me coffee upon arrival. Strangers normally want a cigarette or all of your money. It felt odd, grownup and awesome.

I desperately needed my roots filled in and a haircut. I had two different stylists who were in their 20s working on me, and they were both awesome. I started off with Kayla. We swapped 7th grade hair horror stories and ex-boyfriend chatter as I continually got pumped with free coffee caffeine, the best kind! My hair color turned out amazing and I was so grateful that Kayla was a rad chick with mad talent.

For the haircut, I went over to Robbie who gave me the most attentive hair cut I’ve ever had in my life. His passion for cutting hair was apparent. Even as I sit here, two days later with bathtub water hair, the cut makes it look like I styled it. That’s fucking genius, and a haircut everyone should have if they don’t like styling their hair everyday.

I highly recommend these two hair wizards. The haircut was $25 and the color was $60. For living in a city and getting amazing hair afterwards, that’s a very good price.

Lana del Rey has such great hair. I’ve been channeling her color frequency, and it is ballin’.
