So, how'd you end up here in Minnesota?

Posted at 8:01 AM on March 4, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Did someone immigrating here ask you to come with? We want to know. From our Minnesota Arrival homepage:

To celebrate 150 years of statehood, Minnesota Public Radio wants to tell the story of the people who make up our state. It's a daunting task, and we'd like your help.

You can fill out the general items on the page's form and then expand on your story. Call up your relatives and pull out the scrapbooks! We have a special group on Gather.com to use their tools... you can write an article, share pictures, or even upload video. Tell us - and everyone - how you or your ancestors came to Minnesota, and why you've decided to stay.

* Why does this man live in Minnesota?
* Help write a new song for Minnesota

What rock show are you most embarrassed about attending?

The Musicheads want to know. The answers can be self-effacing, oddly descriptive, or regrettable. Here are some examples:

"...I'd have to say that there were a few shows my own band has put on that I wish I had not attended...." - Joseph H.

"I saw Phish in the mid-90's at Target Center. I would characterize it as being at a really, really great party with really, really bad music on the stereo!" - Current DJ Tony Lopez

"It would have to be Night Ranger at the Kansas State Fair in 1985. For some reason our music teacher thought a group of high school band students would rather see that lame excuse for a rock band rather than Johnny Cash, who was also at the fair. What a bummer." - WS R.

Join the confession...err... discussion.
