Guest Post #5 - Katie "Hopalong Cassidy" Poulos

Since roughly 1/2 of The Canals hails from the beautiful land called the Midwest, we have Katie here to pick up the slack:

Hi, this is Katie Poulos, long-time reader, first-time poster. I'm from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota. Yes, it snows. Yes, it's cold. Yes, "Minnesota nice" is real. I don't, however, pronounce words with long Os (although I have been known to add a long "A" sound to a phrase here and there). I've spent most of my life trying to get out of the Midwest and on to bigger and better places, but now that I find myself on the East Coast, I'm a little nostalgic for home. One of the great things many may not know about the Twin Cities (besides being able to order "pop" at a restaurant) is the underground hip-hop group Atmosphere. Based in Minneapolis, Atmosphere's brand of Midwestern rap has got more than just the central time zone excited. I saw them play at the Quest in Minneapolis a few years ago, they were awesome. Here's a few of my favorites, check them out.

"And it hit me, Minnesota is dope
If only simply for not what we have but what we don't"

Atmosphere -- Smart Went Crazy
Atmosphere -- God Loves Ugly
Atmosphere -- Guns and Cigarettes
Atmosphere -- Say Shhh

Check out Atmosphere at his Myspace page.

Brother Ali is also awesome. From Minnesota and his beats are produced by Ant, who produces for Atmosphere. Oh, and Felt, which is Slug from Atmosphere and Murs.

I mostly like the glove Katie is wearing in the picture. I mean, I liked the post too, but that glove. God damn.

Well, that is the only way to appropriately handle eggs, Alex...

Question: was the long time reader, first time poster inspired by my call in to Benjy's radio show?

Katie said...

I can't say it wasn't, Cobb, that was a great line

My pride is boundless. It was an excellent posting, for a Poolouse. The picture is one of the better ones on the site, I may add.
