TC Daily Planet: Asks for reader comments on comment policy. i.e., We get shitty comments, too. What should we do about it so people don’t hate reading our stuff like they hate reading comments at the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press? (via @mn_newscouncil)

About Minneapolis/St. Paul: Get your kettlebell on. (I have to say I really love About’s practice of self-linking to boost their page views. Love it so much. Not.)

Least Dangerous Game: As cool as everyone thinks the Twitter hide and seek game is, not many people are actually playing. Aric’s going back to the drawing board.

Hennepin County has a limited number of low cost rain barrels for sale. They’re going for something like $60. Usual price is more like $200. (via Mpls Issues Forum)

MPLS Mirror presents a very good case for why their citizen journalism effort is worthy of a donation. If you like what they do, help ’em out.

News Cut: 35W Bridge, yay! Wakota Bridge, boo!

Bicycle Film Festival Comes to Minneapolis July 9-12

bicyclefilmfestival08.jpgThis seems much more organized than in years past, which is probably explained by the fact that, though this is the 8th year of BFF, it’s only the third year it’s played in Minneapolis.

So what the heck is a Bicycle Film Festival, anyway?

The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. We are into all styles of bikes and biking. If you can name it-Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents- we’ve probably either ridden or screened it. What better way to celebrate these lifestyles than through art, film, music and performance? We bring together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways. Ultimately the Fest is about having a good time.

Films will screen at eight different venues across Minneapolis, from Pi to First Avenue to the MacPhail Center. There is free valet bicycle parking at each one. You can buy a festival pass or tickets to individual shows. Complete details at bicyclefilmfestival.com.

(Biking from venue to venue is also good practice for Fringe.)
