BEMIDJI—Comedian Ralphie May has some advice for people on what to expect from his upcoming show on Saturday: He is a dirty comic who doesn't mind being offensive. "I'm a dirty, filthy animal, so if you're overly sensitive, I'm not the show for you. Just stay home and watch 'Seinfeld' reruns," May said during an interview with the Pioneer. "I've always liked being a dirty comic. At least it's honest. Look at (Bill) Cosby, he never told a dirty joke in his life and look at what kind of creepo he turned out to be."
BEMIDJI—Across the album, in large letters is the word "Bemidji." The letters are on top of an old, faded postcard of the iconic Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues. This is the cover of Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes' latest EP, titled after this very city. The question: Why? It turns out that the Nashville band has ties to Minnesota: Daniel Ellsworth grew up in Woodbury, near St. Paul, and has family in the Bemidji area.
