http://www.postcrescent.com/article/20110130/APC02/101300650/Mike-Woods-column-Which-hard-working-city-Pittsburgh-or-Green-Bay-has-the-advantage-

"Pittsburgh is home to singer Christina Aguilera. Green Bay is home to Dave Pirner, lead singer of Soul Asylum. How many people have posters of Dave Pirner hanging on their bedroom wall?"

Technically Christina Aguilera is from Wexford, and Dave sure as hell isn't from Green Bay, despite what Wikipedia says. This guy clearly doesn't know what he's talking about. 8-)

Also, thanks to our economic crisis in the 1980's, Pittsburgh isn't currently experiencing the same economic woes as the rest of the country. I'd say we're ahead of the curve.

I'm going to plead the fifth on that poster question. ;)

Yeah, I've even fixed that Wikipedia article myself (to Minneapolis) a couple times myself and it keeps getting changed (IMDb has his birthplace listed the same too).

Well, I don't know how many people can say they have a huge one-of-a-kind autographed poster of Christina Aguilera poster hanging on their bedroom wall. :P

I don't have any posters of Dave in my bedroom, but I can say I have one of Karl... granted I haven't put it up in my new apartment yet.

I'll take this opportunity to revive an old thread: Lost in your own room: SA interior design. Now's the time to show off those Dave Pirner posters you've been talking about. ;)

I was actually kidding. I don't really have a poster of Dave in my bedroom.

I must, however, confess to having a montage of Dave photos as my screen saver (a.k.a. screen Daver), as referenced in the "If the Shoe Fitts" chapter of While You Were Outpatients. :oops: But everything else in that story was fiction, I swear!

I thought Dave was born in Green Bay but grew up in Minneapolis.

Yes, Christina Aguilera is from Wexford. When she was getting popular, I was going to school at University of Pittsburgh, and the radio stations played her songs often and referred to her as "Pittsburgh's own Christina Aguilera." Not sure if Sara (Alyssa Jones) remembers that.
