Where Minnesotans and tourists take picture in Minnesota. This map is courtesy of Flickr, who mashed together their inventory of geotagged photos by users who live in Minnesota and those who do not. The Blue lines represent photos taken by us Minnesotans and the red lines represent the foreigners’ photos. The concentrations of tourists photos are mainly at the airport and at Mall Of America.
More evidence that the notion of the mashup is taking hold in the mainstream culture. The Bryant Lake Bowl is currently showing Michael Bay’s Super Mario Armageddon, a mashed up play featuring the video game sensibilities of Super Mario Bros depicted in the film direction style of Michael Bay.
Here’s Bryant Lake Bowl’s description: Action movies and video games collide in a mushroom cloud of funny! Imagine the biggest video game ever! As told by the biggest director ever!! In the biggest way ever!!! Now imagine all that squeezed onto a 9 x 22 foot stage in the back of a bowling alley.
Two more shows remain. [DETAILS.]

This is great! A re-enactment of the final play of the Vikings game against the 49ers when Brett Favre hits Greg Lewis in the back of the end zone to pull out a victory with twelve seconds on the clock. Found at YouTube from MrNFL.
