Officials say the culprit is a 16" pipe


Well no wonder.

Didn't the Electric Fetus open for the Doors at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go back in '67?
 
2013-01-02 04:01:00 PM
It's a great place to go for overpriced paraphernalia and doo-dads.

TFA says it's a *building*.

...

I wonder if it's an abortion clinic.

Nah, that's the Electrified Fetus.  Easy mistake to make.

You mean that little Swedish meatball place down the street?

Hope that uterus got a good grounding rod...nothin' more dangerous than a improperly installed electric fetus.

I didn't realize they were still around. Know Name Records in Mpls is another one I'm surprised is still around.

I used to buy my Diamond Head and Metallica records at the Electric Fetus and Northern Lights back in '84 and '85......

My trip up to the Cities last week, I was at Cheapo, Roadrunner, and Hymie's.

And local music. And tickets to local shows without a Ticketbastards surcharge. And live performances. And non-corporate bullshiat. But, yeah, if you want cheap paraphernalia you gotta go to Down In The Valley, or that place down in Dinkytown.

Hahaha Duluth made the news! I knew it wasn't a coincidence of the Electric Fetus being that store. Buncha hippies downtown. I live very close to that street and I found out about it on Fark

not big record collectors, eh?
Was just at the mpls location this afternoon.
bought a heaping stack of vinyl
good times

Electric fetus?

/sounds like a good band name to me
 
2013-01-02 05:39:44 PM
Officials say the culprit is a 16" pipe from 1887.

Culprit? That pipe's been doing it's job diligently for 125 years non-stop. It earned a break.
 
2013-01-02 05:40:03 PM
I dodn't know they had a store in Duluth. Use to shop at the one next to 35W to pick up obscure electronic music CDs (back in the 80's).

Wait. You can buy records there?

Yikes, sucks for the store, though I've not been there in ages.

In related news: There's a new ice skating rink on Superior Street
 
2013-01-02 05:45:51 PM
I'm glad everyone knows the Electric Fetus is a store and not something more ominous. In a horror movie, "water pouring into the Electric Fetus" would take place in the first ten minutes and be followed by 50 minutes of a giant electrified baby wading through downtown Duluth zapping everything in sight.

Been to that store a buncha times on vacation, got a sticker from them. So it was interesting to see this article...

Break? Next thing it'll want paid vacations and benefits...you union thugs will ruin this country!
 
2013-01-02 06:04:47 PM
You know, a pipe that worked until 2013 cast in 1887 isn't really a "culprit" so much as "you get half a century of free pipe"
 
2013-01-02 06:13:41 PM
Is it just me or has Duluth been showing up a lot on Fark recently? There was just the satanic gamer convention and now this. Must be something in the water.
 
2013-01-02 06:20:09 PM
A water main from 1887 is probably paper thin now. And probably rustier than your granddad's old Plymouth Duster. Good luck patching that puppy.

Count me as another Mpls customer that didn't even know a Duluth branch existed. Cool.

Duluth... Duluth... Duluth is on fire... I mean, flooded.
 
2013-01-02 08:09:27 PM
I thought it would be the one we have up here in St. Cloud, with it kind of being near the Mississippi River and all.

(Glad to see it isn't the one that got damaged. Where else would the St. Cloud panhandlers go to stand around and shake down drunken college students?)

/Yes. We still have that kook who dresses like Superman and stands next to the road all day. (At least we DID, until the Dairy Queen he used to stand in front of got torn down.)

Heck, let's try the Sci Fi channel, or whatever they're calling it these days.

Wow, I lived in Saint cloud for two and a half years. Was wondering if the superman guy was still doing his schtick.

Time for some old school tunes.

I don't know, electric fetus just triggered that in my mind.
