EDITORIALNOTE

COMFORTS OF

I

n my life, I've been fortunate enough to travel to many different places in the United States. With the exception of the east coast, I've been able to visit each region of our country whether that be for work or a personal vacation. One thing I have learned is that cities, states and regions take pride in their food. They protect it as if it is one of their own children in some instances. Many Americans are also quick to suggest their region's most famous dish when an outsider is visiting. Kansas City: "You have to try the barbecue." Chicago: "A Chicago-style hot dog has to be your first bite." Colorado: "Have you tried the Rocky Mountain oysters?" Maryland: "Wait, you haven't had a crab cake yet?" Minnesota: "It's hotdish, not casserole."

The list goes on, but each of these dishes provides you a flavor of that particular region. For the inhabitants of these regions, the food listed offers forth the comforts of home. A food that reminds them of their roots or a specific point in their life. It's these regional flavors that create the basis of comfort food, in my opinion. For me, whenever I eat chicken pot pie, I think of when I was growing up and my mom would make them for dinner. I immediately get transported back to my family table, diving into the decadence that is a pot pie. It was also one of the few ways my parents could get me to eat vegetables. Memories were forged when pot pie was served in my house. Those memories flood back into my brain whenever I enjoy a pot pie now.


HOME In part, that is what comfort food should be. It should be a dish you grew up on, a dish that defines you in some ways. Comfort food should also provide memories and put you at ease. Part of what makes Fargo-Moorhead so great from a food perspective is that so many of these different "comfort foods" can be found here. Rather than stick to a regional food like the rest of the country, Fargo-Moorhead amalgamated them all together. The end result is the eclectic food scene we see here. The restaurants here offer whatever type of comfort food you're looking for. They do not stick to one particular "type" of food either. If you grew up eating tacos and find them to be comforting, there are people in this community that grew up eating the same. The result is the abundance of stellar Mexican restaurants here.

Yes, the Midwest staples like tater tot hotdish can be found at establishments across the city, but Fargo-Moorhead is so much more. When it comes to comfort food, there is something for everyone. That diversity in the local food scene is part of what makes this community so special. This issue is focused on the foods that comfort us and it is a celebration of our comprehensive food community. Enjoy,

The Spotlight Editorial Team.

The last seven months have been hard on the sports world. Games, tournaments and entire seasons have been either postponed or canceled altogether. North Dakota State has not been able to avoid this sports exodus either. Despite student-athletes losing seasons and the chance to do what they love, they continue to forge ahead. With little to no clarity in sight, it is the dedication, strength, mental toughness and desire that continues to push Bison student-athletes. Somehow, they continue to be motivated to succeed. As we know, that is just the Bison way...

It's no secret that downtown Fargo is thriving. In just the past few years this sector of town has reinvented itself and brought in a new slew of restaurants, shops, offices and tenants. Luxury apartments and condos are abundant and there certainly is no shortage of places to call home, no matter your taste, age or lifestyle. So come with us this month as we will highlight some spectacular ways to do it all downtown.

Though the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation is extremely important to our business community, many of you might not be familiar with its four outward facing members or with what the organization does as a whole. As the area’s main driver in the primary sector, the GFMEDC is charged with attracting outside primary sector businesses and providing resources for those already established primary sector businesses in the area.

GEARING UP FOR THE FALL By Alexandra Martin Photos by SCHEELS

With help from SCHEELS, we've paired some essential fall outfits with all sorts of fun activities you can wear them to. Come with us as we get ready to look and feel our best during this magical harvest season.

There are plenty of things to get excited about as the temperature declines and pumpkin spice flavors appear on menus everywhere. Oh, the beauty of leaves changing colors and the laughter that ensues when your glasses fog up as you sip piping hot apple cider. We can't get enough! Beyond the more obvious things to get excited about with the coming season, one of our favorite autumn traditions is reintroducing ourselves to cozy sweaters and warm boots. And even better, clearing space for new seasonal apparel to add into the mix! While some of our favorite fall activities will have to be altered to follow health protocols, there's still much fun to have. So hang those jackets back up and find your boot socks. Come with us as we share some fun, socially-distant fall activities and the best ensembles to wear during them. Once you've felt inspired, head to your neighborhood SCHEELS to ensure you have all the right apparel to make for the perfect season.

14 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


• The North Face Women's Oh-Mega Fur Pom Beanie • The North Face Aconcagua Vest • The North Face Trivert Pullover Hoodie • The North Face Perfect Core High-Rise Tights • Sorel Out 'N About Plus Boot

WALK

THE PUP

More time social-distancing at home means more time with our furry family members. For many four-legged friends, the excitement of having their humans home means more enthusiasm about walks and playtime. Gear up for speed walking with Fido with athleisure wear from brands like Under Armor, The North Face and Carhartt. You'll want to be well prepared for whatever route your pet chooses to lead you on!

• Canada Goose Langford Parka • Under Armour Fleece Twist Hoodie • Under Armour Fleece Joggers • Under Armour Charged Engage Sneaker

Did you know that SCHEELS carries a wide variety of dog supplies? Not only can you suit up for your walks at SCHEELS, but you can also ensure your dog is properly outfitted. Match your Carhartt jacket with a matching one for your dog or gear them up in a vibrant Wolfgang leash and harness. Dress in layers! The air might be crisp, but walking around with an excited dog will certainly make you break a sweat. A good puffer vest and hat are perfect for the fall and, as winter sneaks in, adding a Canada Goose parka atop a hoodie is a must. 15

SOCIALIZE AROUND

THE FIRE PIT

Pieces like graphic sweatshirts are ideal for the fall. Whether styled up with stylish denim or popped over leggings at home, you can't go wrong! To top the look off, literally and stylistically, beanies are a great way to add some extra color or playfulness into you look! Investing in statement outerwear might be out of your comfort zone, but beanies are a fantastic, affordable way to jazz up your standard fall outfit. Opt for a solid accent color or get playful with a fur pompom atop. The options are virtually endless.

• Sorel Madson II Chukka Boot

• Carhartt Force Delmont Signature Graphic Sweatshirt • Carhartt Gilliam Jacket

• Blundstone Original 500 Chelsea Boots

Let's be honest, our social hours look a lot different these days. But perhaps it's not so bad that we aren't crowded around loud restaurants or frantically playing host in our homes. Changing norms means new memories to be made, and with fleece blankets and extra layers in our cars, we are ready at any moment for a small outdoor gathering! A great way to still see your loved ones during this season is to get cozy by a fire pit or enjoy appetizers on an outdoor patio. Such environments allow you to be socially distant while also feeling like normal. Many of us have been craving that sense of normalcy, and a good old fashioned fire pit at sundown is a perfect remedy. 16 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

RUN ERRANDS

WITH PIZAZZ

Nowadays, any excuse to get out of the house feels like a big adventure. Gone are the days of grabbing groceries in your pajamas. This is your opportunity to put real pants on! Give those pieces of clothing that have sat folded too long some much-needed wear. Don't hesitate to make an adventure out of your outing. Whether you're going to the grocery store, driving through at the bank or grabbing a new read from the library, make the most of it! Naturally, one spot that is sure to be an adventure is SCHEELS. Swing by to pick up the essentials, but also be sure to get a snack Ginna’s Cafe inside, walk around and see if you can identify all the presidential statues and even enjoy the lights and sounds from their vibrant arcade room.

• Carhartt Logo Sweatshirt • Levi's 511 Slim Fit Jeans • Boys' Nike Revolution 5 Running Shoes

• The North Face Du Nord Reversible Jacket • Kut Denim Connie High-Rise Ankle Skinny Jeans • Blundstone Classic 550 Series Boots

• Columbia Girls’ Horizon Ride Jacket

It's about that time of year where we start giving our mudrooms some real attention. Does looking at your mudroom or entryway make you happy? If you're finding your entryway to be a bit lacking, the easiest way to freshen it up is with new hanging jackets and fresh, lined-up boots. Add in colorful or textured outerwear to draw in the eye and replace those years-old, saltstained boots with some shiny new pairs. 17

GET FLEXIBLE

WITH WORK

When many of us began the transition from the office to workingfrom-home, discussions arose about what the best approach to our wardrobe should be. Do we continue to dress up, comb our hair and put shoes on? Or do we give in to the comforts of our couch and don leggings and a sweatshirt? Whether you're in the cubicle or still operating off of video calls, it's safe to say that our work attire has changed this year. As we've had a few months to adjust, and some of us are partially or fully back in the office, we've uncovered a happy medium. To remain professional, but still comfortable, mix and match standard professional pieces with your comfy home clothes. Statement earrings turn any outfit from casual to impressive. And a button-down can demand respect wherever you go. To cover all your bases, you can get both your professional attire and your casual pieces at SCHEELS. A one-stop-shop ensures your selected pieces all can mix-and-match perfectly. 18 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

• Marmot Dawning Short Sleeve T-Shirt • Marmot Del Norte Midweight Flannel

T-shirts can be professional too...when done right! Pop a fun graphic tee under a sharp blazer or button-down and suddenly your style is elevated. And no, this doesn't mean the free tee you got from 5k run a few years back. Instead, opt for sophisticated tees from your favorite brands like Marmot and Carhartt or some vintage-inspired band tees for a memorable throw-back.


GATHER INGREDIENTS FOR SEASONAL DISHES

WITH THE FAMILY • Burnside Flannel Button Up • Life Is Good Take A Hike Tee • Mavi Zach Jeans • Sorel Madson II Chukka Boot

• Patagonia Better Sweater • Silver Jeans Nathan Skinny Jean • Birkenstock Arizona Sandals

• Columbia Anytime Stretch Hooded Long Sleeve Shirt • North River Waffle Notch Shirt • Prana Sienna Jeans • Blundstone Classic 550 Series Boots

This time of year is especially notable for the culinary delights it provides. Warm cider, pumpkin pie and hearty soups are calling our name. And you know what makes these savory dishes even better? When their ingredients are sourced locally! Load up the family van and make a visit to a farmer's market or apple grove to get fresh ingredients for any and all fall recipes. Be sure to wear something comfortable and casual so you can scour for the best ingredients with ease. And don't forget how picturesque these activities can be! Mix practicality with style by matching trendy denim with timeless flannels and quarter-zip pullovers. This way, you can ensure any family candids will be good enough to print and frame for year-round memories.

Don't forget the boots! Long gone are the days where fashion and function are strangers. SCHEELS carries a wide range of stylish and warm boots from brands like Sorel, Blundstone, Red Wing and Timberland. Your toes will be warm and your impeccable style will turn heads! 19

Before it gets too chilly, take advantage of outdoor fitness. Enjoy a crisp jog through the neighborhood or even practice some yoga in the park. Outdoor exercise is proven to help fend off the seasonal mood swings, plus it helps get your lungs familiar with the crisp air. The benefits of sunshine and fresh air go well beyond physical wellness and truly help uplift the mood.

SAY GOODBYE TO THE GYM

AND HELLO TO THE OUTDOORS

Treat yourself to some new fitness apparel from head to toe. And especially pay attention to the "toe" part! Did you know what you're supposed to replace your running shoes every 300 to 500 miles? For some, this can mean you need new running shoes every year. It's well proved that you'll perform your best when you look and feel your best. So take care of your feet and the rest of your body will thank you, too.


Things are cooling off in FargoMoorhead. Whether we want to admit it or not, winter is on its way and we know how unforgiving it can be. No matter how chilly it may get in the coming months, there is nothing a little comfort food can't cure when it comes to the coldweather blues. Whether it is a nice slice of meatloaf, a hotdish, pasta or anything in between, we all have a dish that makes us feel warm inside. So set aside your diet this month and come with us on a comfort food journey. Trust us, you will not regret it.

How about some chili from The Piggy BBQ in West Fargo?

Rustica 315 Main Ave, Moorhead dinerustica.com 218-227-5388 Dine-in, takeout and catering available. 24 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


When we talk about comfort food, there are few dishes that fill the void quite like mac and cheese. Rustica Eatery & Tavern in Moorhead offers up a true sampling of the timeless favorite that will surely stick to your ribs on a fall day. Chef Micah begins with a classic cavatappi pasta, perfect for absorbing a decadent cheese sauce. At Rustica, they go with a classic smoked gouda cheese sauce that takes this dish to the next level. As if the flavor was not already present, Rustica then tops the mac and cheese with crispy bacon bits and toasted breadcrumbs. The dish is then brought together fully in its final act. Taking a quick trip to the oven, the mac and cheese comes out piping hot with a fantastic cheesy shell on the outside. This leads to an epic cheese pull upon digging into the dish. Make sure you utilize the toasted bread points to soak up all of the cheesy goodness this dish has to offer.

The Piggy BBQ Of West Fargo 816 24th Ave E, West Fargo facebook.com/piggybbqwf/ 701-540-6557 Dine-in, takeout and catering available.


Traditionally, barbecue reminds us of the summer. The smoky aroma and full flavor conjure up images of a warm day on the lake or on the patio. However, when the weather gets cooler, barbecue is still a wonderful food to fill the hole in your stomach. The Piggy BBQ in West Fargo is offering up those beautiful smoky flavors all year round. Beginning in Walker, Minnesota, The Piggy BBQ became nationallyrecognized for its barbecue selection of smoked meats and glorious sides. With their food in high demand, they opted to open a second location in the ever-growing West Fargo.

They continue to smoke their meats daily at the West Fargo location and they are not skimping on the portions. While they offer a full selection of ribs, pulled pork, smoked brisket and chili, their burnt ends (pitured here) will dazzle your tastebuds. With a little more fat than a traditional brisket slice, burnt ends are often the most decadent of barbecue dishes. The Piggy BBQ offers its take on the delicacy with their homemade barbecues sauce, kettle chips and your choice of side (potato salad pictured here).

Tacos Trompo 4265 45th St S #113, Fargo tacostrompo.com 701-282-2473 Dine-in, takeout and delivery available.

Is there anything more comforting than a trio of perfectly seasoned, delicious tacos? Fargo-Moorhead has an abundance of Mexican restaurants and our community is full of tasty tacos. The homespun tacos at Tacos Trompo in South Fargo have to be near the top as far as flavor goes in our area. Offering four protein choices of chorizo, Al pastor (marinated pork and pineapple), carne asada and pollo (chicken), Tacos Trompo gives a true taste of Mexico in their tacos. However,

what makes Tacos Trompo a truly authentic taco experience is the absence of cheese or lettuce on their tacos. Don't worry though, you can "Americanize" your taco if you see fit. Yet, those additions may take away from the fresh protein, homemade corn tortilla and aromatic onion, cilantro and lime. Truthfully, you are not getting a true taco experience by adding either cheese of lettuce. Trust Tacos Trompo, these tacos are worth getting as is. 29

What is more Midwest than tater tot hotdish? The winter staple has become synonymous with not only our region but the entire Midwest region of the country. While the dish is simple in principle, it can be done so many different ways. Yet, each way seems to come out as equally delicious as the next.

traditional hotdish. The end result is a monstrous dish that is sure to have eyes popping and mouths watering. This voluminous hotdish is certainly a one of a kind and is big enough to share. Don't worry, we'd understand if you choose to keep it to yourself too...

Cowboy Jack's takes the traditional tater tot hotdish framework and amplifies it tenfold. Their secret recipe includes all of the staples you would normally find: hamburger, cheese, tater tots and a hearty cream sauce. What makes Cowboy Jack's version so unique is in its presentation.

A good, hearty slice of meatloaf can go unmatched in the pantheon of comfort foods. It is one of those foods that could immediately set you down for a nap after eating, it's that comfortable. Now, take your traditional meatloaf slice and put it on a sandwich. Sounds like insanity, right? Not to The Boiler Room, who is serving up a homemade meatloaf melt with their famous meatloaf as the centerpiece. House-made meatloaf is placed on sourdough bread along with some cheddar cheese and a bourbon barbecue sauce. The end result is something that is part hamburger, part

patty melt, but entirely delicious and comforting. Pair the sandwich with Boiler Room's delectable three-cheese tater tots and you have a comfort food feast at your fingertips. If you do end up opting for the meatloaf melt at The Boiler Room, make sure you bring your own pillow and blanket. While The Boiler Room can offer you a flavorful meal, they cannot supply you with the necessary napping utensils.

FARGO DEATH METAL MEN GORGATRON TALK THEIR NEWEST ALBUM PATHOGENIC AUTOMATION, MISNOMERS IN THE GENRE, HOW COVID-19 HAS IMPACTED THE MUSIC WORLD AND MORE. 36 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

M

etal music is potentially the most misunderstood and misinterpreted genre in music. One immediately conjures up Tipper Gore and her endless crusade to rid the world of metal through the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC). This could also drum up memories of Frank Zappa and Twisted Sister's Dee Snider taking Gore and the PMRC to task in an eloquent and intelligent fashion at a U.S. Senate hearing. Proving that metalheads were indeed human beings, who just so happened to have long hair and wear denim and leather. Regardless, metal (and its subgenres) have always seemed to be relegated to the underground. While it remains a niche genre of music, its artists and bands continue to sell out festivals and concerts to millions of headbangers. Consider it a collective gathering of societal underdogs.


GORGATRON OPENING FOR METAL GIANTS ANTHRAX AND TESTAMENT AT SANCTUARY EVENTS CENTER.

Fargo-based death metal band Gorgatron is creating music for those underdogs. Since 2006, Gorgatron has helped create and cultivate a blossoming death metal scene in FargoMoorhead. With three full albums of proof, Gorgatron offers up tracks tailor-made for the riff-loving and speed-craving metalhead in all of us.

better. It was cool though because we spent a year and a half on the first five and spent another year on the four. So every song got our full attention. Sometimes, there is filler on albums, but I personally don't think there is any of that here. As far as writing, it was kind of a joint effort between all of the members, but Karl does all the lyrics because he went to college.

Their newest release, Pathogenic Automation, is further proof of Gorgatron's talent and ability. The frenetic pace, fret-burning riffs and thunderous sonic tones are so appealing you cannot help but begin to bang your head or turn the volume to a maximum. Add in piercing vocals with some thought-provoking lyrical content too. The final product is a death metal record that does not take a second for granted in its full 41-minute runtime. It is also an album worth listening to over and over again; you may just need a cold shower after each playthrough.

Karl Schmidt: It was kind of frustrating at first because we recorded those five songs and we were just going to record the other tunes, but we found that it sounded different. So we had to re-record those first five tunes. It is a joint effort and we also got our old guitar player, Neal, back so it was the first time we had five people on the record. It was more collective, I suppose. Usually, it's one dude who writes the guitar riffs and feeds it to the drummer and we go from there, but this one felt like we all pitched in and did things here and there.

We discussed Pathogenic Automation, the COVID-19 music scene and the metal genre with Gorgatron bassist Cam Dewald and vocalist Karl Schmidt.

As for lyrical content, this one is pretty much about turning into a robot. I wouldn't say it's different from another record because I have plenty of songs about turning into a robot. I'd say these lyrics are a bit more realistic and relating to things that are real. instead of just violence, getting ripped apart and all these death metal themes, this one is more about relating it to an actual situation in life. For example, "Pathogenic Automation," the title track, on the surface it's a mad scientist turning a bunch of people into robots on a global scale. What I meant and what I Trojan Horsed into the song are themes like how everyone is on their phone these days and they just repeat what they hear. Everyone is just turning into an automated system.

How did you approach the new record and what were you guys aiming for in the studio as far as lyrics and music? Cam Dewald: For me, this is the first album I have been a part of. I came in during the last album cycle right as that came out. Initially, we were going to do a five-song EP and our management and the suits were saying it would be hard to shop that.

(FROM LEFT): GORGATRON: CAMERON DEWALD (BASS), MATT JOHNSON (DRUMS), KARL SCHMIDT (VOCALS), NEAL STEIN (GUITAR) AND PAUL JOHNSON (GUITAR).

The reason I like doing that is that it is extreme death metal. You have to have these extreme themes, but I like to also insert some realism to it. This was your first record as a five-piece. How did that enhance your sound as a band? CD: We're pretty tight musically and playing-wise. We were sometimes practicing four times a week. That is one thing we kind of pride ourselves on. On top of that, we all try to meld our guitar tones into one to make one sonic boom. Luckily, Neal has the best ears in the Midwest for capturing music. The funny thing is he only has one ear; he only has hearing in one ear. That's phenomenal to me. KS: That dude can hear more with his one ear than some people can with two. It's pretty impressive. Cam will probably downplay this, but our past bass player, he played with his fingers and he had a different rig and everything. I feel like the record before this, we kind of honed our sound, but on this record, we really smoothed it out and captured our sound. Cam plays with a pick so he can do some faster things with the bass.

January and February with the full album in March. It definitely hit us hard as far as touring. We had budgeted for a tour in April and May, which would have segwayed into a summer tour and we had an offer on the table for fall. All of that financially would have pushed us into next year and possibly Europe. All of that got canceled, and it's not just us because there are bands on a grander scale that got U.S. grants for hundreds of thousands of dollars. We're all in this together, but luckily we have a good team that is in the industry that is trying to help us chisel out our little niche. Extreme music is such a niche community as it is. KS: On the one hand, it would have been cool to release this record before COVID because there would be some crazy dude who says "they called it!" and we'd get the conspiracy theorists. CD: All of the stamping on the sonic stuff does predate 2020, so we have that for the nerds. KS: It would be even crazier if there were a news article one day that says 'studies show that victims of this pandemic may turn into a fully automated robot.' Then we'd be in trouble.

COVID-19 has really hit the music scene hard. What have been some of the challenges in releasing and promoting an album in this time?

Bands have had to be especially creative during COVID-19 too. How have you guys continued to grow and promote Gorgatron?

CD: Originally, this album was supposed to come out in November. We were going to start doing the singles in November, December,

CD: Outside of extreme metal, we're always doing something. We do a lot of skits where we do funny stuff. This year, we started

a podcast and we're upgrading that and we're going to do more video with that. We're going to bring back the skits and figure out a way to do that. We have done a few shows and we played a two-hour live stream too. KS: We're trying to create as much presence online as possible. We did a two-hour live stream with Livewire and that was really good and successful to my knowledge. We did play a couple of shows, one of them we were contractually obligated to play months prior. Bless the promoter, she just adapted to the situation and made masks required and had a separate area for people who were not feeling comfortable. That worked out well. A couple of weeks ago, we did something similar at The Aquarium. The same situation with masks required, we did half capacity and we also did a live stream for that show as well. To my knowledge, that was successful as well. I have not gotten reports of anyone getting sick at any of those shows. We have played three actual shows with people since everything went down. It seems to have worked. One of the things that really frustrates me about this whole thing is that after we played that show at The Aquarium, a bunch of people had said that we were putting people at risk. That's nonsense. We are not the ones making those calls; we're just trying to save the music scene. CD: You could have gone to Walmart at the same time as our show and there were probably more than 150 people there. We worked with the promotion team and the management to make sure everything was safe. There will always be naysayers though, but we don't know until we try.

40 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

A few songs off of the new record have made their way onto curated playlists on Apple Music and Spotify. How has that enhanced your reach and listenership? CD: Metric-wise, we put out four singles leading up to the album and each one got placed all over on all types of streaming platforms. It has boosted our listenership for sure. We averaged about 15,000 listeners a month across streaming platforms. Now, it has shot up to hundreds of thousands. That's really cool because our main demographic is 18 to mid-30s, predominantly male. In the last six months, I've watched that change to the point where it is all over the place now. Our main bulk is the Midwest and now we have listeners in almost all 50 states, Canada, a boatload in Europe too. As a metal band, Europe is where we want to tap into. That is our Valhalla. The death metal scene in Fargo is still an underground movement, but it has really gained steam in recent years. How have you seen the genre grow in this area? CD: I moved here in 2012 and I had actually seen Gorgatron a bunch of times throughout the Midwest. I had never been to Fargo, but there had to be something here to be able to play this kind of music. Eventually, I ended up in the band, which is hilarious now. When I moved here, there were a few bands, but they were more punk/hardcore groups. Over the last four years or so, death metal bands have been popping up everywhere. Bands like Maul, Phobophilic and Widow are bands that have popped up in that span. It's cool because a lot of those cats are good friends and it's cool to see them in this scene. KS: We just try to roll with the punches as far as the scene around here. Something a lot of people don't know is that we'll


play with anybody no matter the style. Therein lies a problem because there are a lot of bands that do not want to be on bills with us. I get it, if you're a softer band, you're not going to want this loud, obnoxious death metal band playing before or after. At the Livewire stream, we came on after a folk group. It's acoustic guitar and violin. When they got done playing, the guy running the stream didn't want dead air. We walked up on stage, turned on our amps and started. It was like a minute and a half turnover time. So we can play with anyone.

Metal is a genre that so often gets misrepresented and misinterpreted. There are still plenty of people who have negative connotations with the genre. Do you guys ever feel those misnomers and how do you go about disproving them? CD: It's interesting being in a workplace and playing in a death metal band and being a fan of this kind of music. Most of the people I know listen to country where the heaviest thing they've heard is maybe Metallica. I just tell them that we play music that is kind of like Metallica, but heavier. At the end of the day, here is where I am at with this question: it's rock and roll. Extreme metal or any kind of metal is rock and roll because we're out there pounding the pavement the same way rock bands are. We're just a bit louder and faster. KS: There is kind of a tough guy complex in metal where people take themselves super seriously. We don't do that. We're not going to sit here and pretend to be tough or prove toughness. A lot of people think that the metal community is full of racism, misogyny, satanism and all this bull****. We don't f*** with any of that. None of my lyrics are killing women or anything that people associate with metal. I don't even get into politics if I'm writing lyrics. We don't need that at all in any musical genre.

CD: Dave Mustaine of Megadeth said something about satanism in metal or whatever. He said 'why would you pigeonhole yourself? Now, everything you do has to be that.' KS: And there are bands that have that, to be fair. CD: But I think we do a good job of leaving it up to the listener's interpretation. Meld the words into whatever you want them to be. KS: Honestly, if people ever ask me about lyrical themes. I usually say they are about turning into robots or food. If someone is offended at the fact that I like fried onions or something, what are you going to say? If I'm talking about banh mi sandwiches and someone gets offended, that is just because you don't like banh mi sandwiches. You can't get mad at that. CD: That's metal, man. We're one with the underdogs. If people want to think we're these crazy people, we're not. We are just dudes. Where do you want to take Gorgatron in the future? What sort of goals do you guys have? CD: There is the delusion of grandeur or world tours with the biggest bands. Until then, the realistic ones are financially and logistically planning out a European tour. We just had to pass up an offer because it logistically didn't make sense. We've been getting the offers for two to three years now, but it just doesn't logistically add up yet. The COVID kick didn't really help that. KS: The issue is we don't have any shows as a form of income for the foreseeable future. Other than our web store, which is cool, but that is what it is though.

42 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

CD: The feasible things are planning out a proper European tour. We have a booking agency putting together appearances in the States too. The main goal that we've really been working towards with this current release is graduating up in the label. Right now, we're with a record label called Bloodblast Distribution and they are a subsidy of a bigger label called Nuclear Blast. They are an international label and the plan is to get our sales to a certain point, which today is anywhere between 1,500 and 3,000 units. Whereas 10 to 15 years ago, Eminem released The Marshall Mathers LP and it moved like 750,000 units and his label was worried. It's cool in this genre because you can see a band like Cannibal Corpse on the Billboard Top 40 because metal fans still buy stuff. Your casual listener is listening on the radio. So a big goal for us is to get on a bigger label which we hope will happen not on our next release, but the release after that. In the next five years, we want to be on a bigger label and touring. That would be the perfect goal. We'll see. KS: On a much smaller level, if I had to choose a goal it would be this. For those reading, there are a lot of bands that want fame, the partying, the money and all that stuff. My goal as a band dude is to just get to the point where I don't have to drive on tour ever again. Whether that means paying a driver or being in a bus, that is my only goal. If we could make zero dollars on the road, but I never had to drive on the interstate, my life would be great. CD: I thought you were going to say you want to get to the point where someone brings you a gyro or burrito on stage at every show. KS: That would be cool too.


Is there anything else our readers should know about Gorgatron? CD: A lot of bands from this area that are in this extreme world, they almost frown upon being from Fargo. We are proudly from the Fargo-Moorhead area and we rep it. Those of you reading, invite your whole friend's list to our Facebook page and share our stuff. Spreading the word is what it's all about. KS: If you want to see us do certain skits, we do take requests. We'll do dumb stuff.

SPEAKING

Up! Shalom Alekhem

I hope this written piece finds you before your next prowess of the day! It is with great pleasure and honor that I get to introduce a stellar gentleman whom I got the privilege to learn from and benefit from his notable passage in the Red River Valley. Have you ever been energized and inspired by an encounter with a human being with a contagious passion and care for the community? Well after meeting Girimana that is how I felt: I wanted to take on many challenges presented by society; I felt encouraged and confident that I could do anything because when Girimana sets his eyes on an objective only the stratosphere is the limit. He is resilient and a radical optimist whenever faced with challenges. As a proud MSUM graduate in Communication, he has left the Dragon campus better than he found it and this speaks to his transformative servant leadership skills. Fargo-Moorhead is fortunate to have him call the valley his home away from his beautiful home, the land of milk and honey: Burundi. We sincerely hope Girimana continues to call the valley home because he is on a mission to make this world a better place! In Solidarity: - Alexandre Cyusa 44 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Where do you call home and since when have you called Fargo home? Home for me is a beautiful city, 7,000 miles away from here, called Bujumbura. It is the largest city and the capital of Burundi. With approximately 10 million people, Burundi is also one of the smallest countries on the African continent. Currently, we live in a time where humans, especially Millennials, are constantly moving between different places. The constant technological innovations have made our world a small village. Consequently, many young adults like me do not consider one place as their only home. My home is where I feel appreciated, serene, challenged and safe. I came to the United States about four years ago. Fargo-Moorhead has become my “home away from home” mainly due to the connections and relationships that I have built over the years.

The Story of Speak Up As an event coordinator for the Dragon Entertainment Group at MSUM, I wanted to create an event that gave a platform to any person that has a personal message or story that they would like to share with the rest of the campus. I have had incredible professors and have so many friends that have incredible stories that have inspired me (and sometimes leave me speechless.) And, while talking to them, I remember thinking: “It would be nice if so and so could hear this story…" So, I thought, let’s have an event where anyone can come and listen to those personal stories, because at the end of the day we all can learn from each other. And, with the support of my supervisor Becky Boyle Jones, other team members and Annie Wood, the assistant director for student life, we were able to host it for the first time during spring of 2018.

Was there culture shock leaving Bujumbura and coming to Fargo? When I left my hometown, I had no expectations or preconceived ideas of how life in Fargo would be. I landed in the US like a charred blue teddy bear that fell from the skies and into your pool. I came as a college student and my first impressions of Fargo were good. I met nice people and my new place was not too bad. Even though my English proficiency was limited,

I was able to communicate and even crack a few jokes; unsuccessfully. During the first days, I was honestly only preoccupied with perfecting my English and where my classes were located. My first culture shock symptoms did not kick in until two months from my arrival. At first, you do not realize that you are doing or noticing things because of a cultural shock. Although the food and the weather were some of the big differences, my biggest cultural shock was the lifestyle. I come from a society built on communitarianism and the USA (Fargo included) has a society centered on individualism. It may sound weird, but most of our daily life activities are communal. I learned how to adjust, appreciate and assimilate myself to my new lifestyle.

Why should people care about reading about regions outside the Midwest? And the interconnectedness between worlds? There is a proverb in Kirundi, my mother tongue and the official language in Burundi, that says, “Akanyoni katagurutse ntikamenya iyo bweze” – And that basically translates to "A bird which never flies, never knows that there is food somewhere else." The bird in this proverb can symbolize anybody while the food can be about knowledge. The best way to learn about other countries, other than actually going there, is to read about them. I am always fascinated when I meet someone from a country that I don’t particularly know a lot about. And I always try to find one thing that both my country and theirs have in common. The goal, by doing that, is to acknowledge their cultural background while building a personal connection with that person.

Is there a misconception of safety about your country's continent (media impacting one’s opinion)? The fact that we live in a warzone is probably the biggest misconception of safety that people might have. For example, there are 54 countries on the African continent. Fifty-four countries with different cultures, politics and ethnicities. The media has nurtured the idea that we live with constant fear and hunger which is far from the truth. Just like anywhere in the rest of the world, we have people who live in poor conditions and others who live

in good conditions. We have some regions that are plagued with insecurity and others that are considered some of the safest in the world. The media has indeed taken part in spreading false information and broad stereotypes about not only African countries, but also other countries as well. It is a powerful tool which can control the way people perceive one another. Chimamanda Ngozi said it best when she said, “the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete.”

What did you learn growing up in Burundi that you can apply here in Fargo? Growing up, I learned, through life experiences, that we are alike and yet all different somehow. I realized that our differences do not necessarily have to be an obstacle in living together. All it takes is a little common sense and tolerance. If my neighbor has a religion different from mine, how does that prevent me from living my own belief? If an individual dresses or lives eccentrically, how does this interfere with my daily life? If someone else has opinions that are different from mine, how does that prevent me from having mine? My country’s history taught me that our differences can actually enrich our lives in general. Think about how boring and monotonous life would be if we were all perfectly alike! No culture or religion is absolutely perfect. So, what did I learn in Burundi that I can apply here (or anywhere in the world)? I learned that we should just cultivate tolerance and remember that we will always be "different" from someone else.

What is your vision 2030? Where will you be and why? I honestly don’t know. I am a person who likes to live in the present. So, I just hope that the next 10 years will be a time of continuous learning, because I am a firm believer that we never stop learning. I hope that in those 10 years, I get to spend more time with loved ones, strengthen lost friendships and just strive to be happy. Now, we all know that sometimes things don’t necessarily go in the way we want them to go, but beautiful things can also come from the unexpected. 45


MEET THE

Duchessa Gelato I

f you ask us about the ultimate comfort food (and one by a regional maker as a bonus) we have been next-level obsessed with Duchessa Gelato – especially their blueberry cheesecake gelato. OMG! Meet the maker herself and then go try some to make your 2020 level up.

Tell us about yourself: My name is Maartje Murphy and I am originally from the Netherlands, but I currently live in Carrington, North Dakota. My family moved from the Netherlands to Canada in 2001, when I was seven. In 2008, we moved to Carrington, North Dakota. We were dairy farmers in the Netherlands, Canada and now Carrington. I graduated high school from Carrington in 2013 and went to the University of North Dakota to study nursing. After graduation, I worked in the emergency department at Sanford in Fargo for two and a half years. My husband and I recently moved back to Carrington and purchased a farmstead where we will continue to grow our business "Cows and Co Creamery/Duchessa Gelato." My husband is a full-time physical therapist in Carrington and helps me with my business whenever he can. Describe what you create under Duchessa?

I make artisanal gelato with farm-fresh milk from our family dairy farm! I have made

over 100 different flavors and continue to make new ones. I serve the gelato from an authentic Italian gelato cart at weddings, farmer's markets, business meetings, graduations and for basically whoever wants to hire us! I have also started monthly deliveries to several cities around the state. The customers order via our website the first week of each month! Your personal favorite flavor you've created so far? I love the traditional Italian flavors such as Hazelnut, Pistachio, Gianduja and Stracciatella. We have recently created a Sweet Yogurt Amarena Cherry gelato, which is absolutely amazing! How did your family’s dairy farm lead you to create a gelato business? Dairy farming has been in my family for several generations. My parents and two older brothers are very passionate about their farm, cows and business. They have been awarded every single year for


producing high-quality milk. I loved being raised on a dairy farm, but never truly had an interest in being the dairy farmer. However, I have always loved and had an interest in dairy products. Since I am from the Netherlands, we travel back once or twice a year to visit family. Just like Italy, the Netherlands has gelato shops everywhere! We would go get gelato nightly when we are visiting and I have always thought it would be so fun to bring a gelato shop back to North Dakota since we do not have anyone that is making artisanal gelato with farm fresh milk! What’s coming up next? Like I stated earlier, we are in the process of building on a new farm creamery. We are expanding into the cheese-making world. Since I am from the Netherlands it only felt right to start with Gouda cheese! At the beginning of 2020, I went back to the Netherlands for about a month and worked on a farm creamery. This is where I learned everything about the Gouda cheese-making process. We hope to have Cows and Co Creamery be a small vacation destination for the citizens of North Dakota and surrounding states. We want to educate the community about dairy farming, gelato, cheese, and other dairy products. Cows and Co Creamery will have a production/aging room, cafÊ, patio and several animals for citizens to enjoy!

What is your favorite thing about having your own business?

What advice would you have given yourself 10 years ago?

There is something extremely special about working for yourself and your family. Even though I work over 40 hours a week, it does not feel like that at all because I am doing something I love. The flexibility of owning my own business and making my own schedule is also a big perk.

Go to university and get a business/ marketing degree, haha! I do not regret going to nursing school at all. I love being a nurse and have met my best friends in nursing school. Ten years ago I did not know I would be making gelato and other dairy products so education in business would be nice to have right now. Luckily, my parents are entrepreneurs and have guided me through the process.

What is the most challenging thing? The most challenging thing for me right now is keeping up with the growth of Duchessa Gelato. I am currently running social media, answering all customer questions, making the gelato, catering events and delivering. It has been tough juggling and keeping up with all the work. It is probably time to hire a few employees! I have A LOT of help from my mother and I would not be able to do it without her. We have an awesome relationship so it is super fun to work with her every day. I also get help from my husband, sister in law, brothers and father too! What is a word that best describes you? Determined. I feel like I set many goals and will work hard to reach them!

Where can people find your work? Instagram, Facebook, our website and the Red River Market! Depending on how long the creamery construction takes hopefully next spring and summer people will be able to come out and visit Cows and Co! How can our community support you especially in this time? Sharing the word of Duchessa Gelato and Cows and Co Creamery!

Finding Forgotten Mascots h

Dog

By Marisa Jackels Photos provided by DogDayz Apparel

How DogDayz Apparel is using retro clothing to restore small-town pride

p p A Dayz

A

s a junior high school student in Twin Valley, Minnesota, population 800, Mike Brevik understood the power of the mascot. He knew the Twin Valley Tiger on his t-shirt represented far more than a few stripes. It was a symbol of pride. “In our community, you took great pride in your school team,” Brevik said. “Everyone in town had a connection to the school mascot. Seeing it always sparked a conversation about that one game or that one memory.” Then, when Brevik was entering junior high, the school board of Twin Valley found themselves facing a difficult decision — one that was not uncommon for smaller towns with decreasing school attendance. In order to continue providing the school with enough students and resources, Twin Valley would need to merge with their arch-rival, The Gary Bulldogs.

Mike Brevik DogDayz founder

48 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“No one wanted to partner with the enemy,” Brevik said with a chuckle. “There was so much rivalry and independence that we were giving up. But at the end of the day, we had no choice.”

e r a

Twin Valley and Gary initially merged to become the Norman County East Eagles for Football and Track. The days of the Twin Valley Tigers were numbered. Small-town schools across America can tell a similar story. From 1930 to 1970, the United States saw a wave of consolidation causing the number of school districts to fall by 90 percent. And while that number is less drastic today, the past decade has still seen consolidations in rural areas like parts of Minnesota and North Dakota, where merging provides the only way forward and sustains the same levels of education and opportunities as the rest of the nation. The result is a figurative graveyard of old mascots — cherished, worn with pride, and many laid to rest or even forgotten. As a graphic designer with a dream to create his own apparel designs, Mike Brevik was intrigued at what it would look like to resurrect some of these beloved images. “I always wanted to create retro apparel or do something that was not only unique but connected back to a memory that meant something to me,” he said. “I think back to my old mascot tees for the local teams that I had as


a kid. I always wished I had held on to some of those.”

“Did you save that?” Someone else questioned.

A few years ago, the thought dawned on Brevik: “I don’t have to wish, I can just make them.”

“Wow, that reminds me of that one time….” Another said as they shared a story of the old Twin Valley Tiger glory days.

His first beta test for the concept came when he created a Twin Valley Tiger t-shirt, just in time for the Twin Valley annual small-town festival. (“You know in small-town USA there’s that one time a year you have a festival and main street activities and a car show,” Brevik explained with a laugh.) Brevik wore the T-shirt as he enjoyed the street fair, wondering if anyone would notice. Turns out, they did. “Oh my gosh… where did you get that?” A woman asked.

Within just a handful of hours, Brevik estimated he had over 35 people point out the shirt. “I was trying to get a feel for whether or not a concept like that has a place in the market,” Brevik said. “Not only did it create some excitement but it consistently created positive discussion.” With his newfound positive validation, the idea came alive. Brevik started researching the lost, no longer active mascots from schools within a 30-40 mile radius of Twin Valley. One by one,

the mascots came back to life through his retro-themed apparel; the Ulen Panthers, Hitterdal Vikings, Hendrum Huskies, and Halstad Pirates. Unique mascots emerged like the Audubon Zephyrs, named after the west wind. Or Hallock’s Fighting Bears, featuring a bear with boxing gloves. And of course, the Twin Valley Tigers, featured in its original classic white and green. “There’s a nostalgia to each piece of clothing because you went there, or maybe your parents went there. It keeps you connected to that memory,” Brevik said. Each mascot tee comes in a Home and Away version, just like you’d have for the original sports teams, and is available in its original school colors. You might also notice the t-shirts are not exact duplications of the originals, but rather replicas — custom designs

that capture the essence of the mascot with DogDayz’ signature retro twist. “Everything that we’re creating has to be apparel neutral or retro. We’re not following any current fashion trends because those trends didn’t exist in the ’60s, '70s, '80's, '90s, etc.. We’re trying to stick to the fashion pallet and options of what you’d find back then when these mascots were available,” Brevik said. Even the name, “DogDayz Apparel,” harkens back to the nostalgia of smalltown summers, Brevik said; going down to the swimming hole with your friends, coming back at the evening whistle, enjoying the longest dog days of summer with your friends. It also keeps a connection to Brevik’s other business, a marketing agency called Cyberdogz.

50 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“It keeps up that brand connection, and it still carries that nostalgic mindset of ‘days gone by,’” Brevik said.

where we come from, and bring some respect back to the mindset of small towns.”

Since then, Brevik has expanded the apparel line to include landmark tees that highlight businesses that no longer exist — such as Char’s Cafe in South Dakota, the Fargo Famous 1960s Pink Pussycat lounge, and Twin Valley’s own Kegler’s Lanes, the Friday night placeto-be bowling alley Brevik remembers. DogDayz also has a Lake Life line and a DogDayz Apparel brand line.

Re-investing in Small Towns

Brevik hopes that when people wear the designs, they continue to spark the same nostalgia and small-town pride conversations that he experienced firsthand in his own small town. “The resurrecting of the memory and conversations about it continue to come up as long as you wear it,” he said. “For me, it’s a way to celebrate

In addition to the fond memories, Brevik sees the importance of restoring smalltown pride when recent years have seemingly sought to tear that down. “People have been saying small towns are dying for so long, I think we actually started to believe it,” he said. “But inbetween all larger cities, there are miles and miles of land that contain small towns along the way, people that live there and the memories and legacy that time has forgotten. They’re still there, they’re not dying. The problem is too many small towns drank the Kool-Aid and have stopped aspiring for big things.”


DogDayze Apparel dogdayzapparel.com facebook.com/dogdayzapparel

Driving around Brevik’s hometown area of Twin Valley, the difference is apparent. “There are some towns that are oozing with community pride that never gave in to that,” Brevik went on. “Then there are other towns that put the plywood up on all the businesses on Main Street and seemingly gave up. It’s different for every town.” As a small-town native with an entrepreneurial mindset, Brevik continues to see the potential of small towns. In fact, his dream with DogDayz Apparel is to one day use the profits to reinvest in the small communities; boosting community programs, schools and of course, the annual street fairs and small-town celebrations. “Years have passed and these small towns are still here. The gas stations are running. There’s still tar being put

down every few years,” he said. “Now it’s about maintaining the legacy and history of these small towns — not necessarily to get them back to what they once were but to sustain what they have, restore what’s been neglected and resurrect what’s been forgotten. We’re working to build back that hope.”

“There is no reason this couldn’t be a national effort of finding little small towns from Texas to Nebraska, and celebrating those mascots,” he said. “If you’re from a small town and your mascot or landmark no longer exists, we’d love for you to submit that idea on our site.”

Last year was a big year for DogDayz Apparel; the expanded clothing lines were launched, along with the new and improved website. This year is about getting more exposure to the story, seeking support and “doing more good with it,” Brevik said.

In the meantime, Brevik continues his own search for old mascots and logos that can be made into designs. And just as each mascot is given new love and life, he hopes to see the same happen for places like his hometown of Twin Valley — a resurgence of community pride in the small-town communities across America.

As he looks to the years ahead, Brevik’s gaze goes beyond the Upper Midwest. He is especially excited about a little form on the website called “Tee Request”: a submission box where anyone can put in their own suggestion for a laid-to-rest mascot or business logo to be made into DogDayz apparel.

Bracing For Winter W

BY Ty Filley PHOTO BY Scott Seiler Photography 52 | OCTOBER 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

ith an investment in innovation in the Public Work division, the City of Fargo is ready for the winter months.

October. Like clockwork, the season’s first flakes fly perennially during the tenth month. In a year full of broken traditions, Mother Nature may intend on keeping this one.

October in Fargo seems to bring a handful of things with it each year: the finality of the year embodied by the transition of once lively tree leaves from a verdant green to rich hues of red and orange before finally resting devoid of color altogether on the ground, the traditions of Halloween, trick-or-treating and everything else the spooky holiday entails, and, perhaps most frightening of all – our first snowfall. Fargo’s first recorded frozen precipitation of the 2019 fall/winter was in October. The first 2018 snowfall in Fargo also took place in October. In 2017… you guessed it,

The Fargo Public Works team has become pretty adept at handling heavy snowfall. With more than 2,100 miles worth of lanes to cover each time it snows, there’s plenty of practice to be had. The Fargo fleet utilizes several different types of vehicles depending on the scope of the plowing task at hand. Some vehicles are even mounted with laser guides which pierce through the snow and inform equipment operators of what is underneath heavy drifts and allowing for an even safer way to clear roads.

Even with the experience the Streets Team has in addressing heavy snow, the City of Far More realizes there is always room for improvement. The Fargo Public Works Department has actively sought new tools to continually enhance its methods. For example, the department is approved to purchase an additional motor grader for maintenance operations, including snow removal services for residential areas. This heavy duty piece of machinery is especially useful for the wet, heavy snow we receive when the temperature hovers around 32 degrees. The grader will help neighborhoods on the south end of Fargo, such as Deer Creek and Osgood, which do not have as much tree coverage to slow snowfall from covering streets. The new grader should be able to effectively scrape streets clean and allow residents in those neighborhoods to utilize the streets even sooner following snowfall. Utility and multi-purpose equipment is highly prioritized in the Public Works Department. The incoming grader isn’t a single season tool. It can also be used for moving earth and construction efforts during the warmer parts of the year. This is not the only Swiss Army Knife-esque investment the department is making. An anti-ice roll-off body skid is also planned for purchase. This specialized piece of equipment allows the fleet’s existing vehicles to be used for anti-ice treatment, and eliminates the need to pay for a vehicle specifically for de-icing.

leave some roads riddled with potholes. Early in the spring, it can be difficult to produce the material needed to patch those holes, as many asphalt plants do not open until the weather warms up. To help repair the streets and preserve drivers’ rides much earlier in the season, a new hot patch truck insert will be utilized. The attachment works in conjunction with an existing truck to heat up small batches of asphalt as crews repair the road. For the average resident, commuter or visitor in Fargo, this means nasty gouges along their route can be repaired by City crews more easily in the thawing months. Troublesome potholes, as always, should be reported at FargoOne.com or on the FargoOne app: a specialized service which allows citizens to report a variety of issues from potholes to graffiti. In 2019, the City of Fargo was ranked as the number six city in the entire nation for quality of city services by WalletHub, a national ranking website. This ranking was based on the value and efficacy of the services offered to residents. The City of Fargo’s commitment to street-level excellence is rooted in efficiency and prudent investment in innovation. With continued diligence, the City hopes to continue improving its service to each of its residents and visitors.

The commitment to efficiency and efficacy isn’t limited to the wintertime. The aftermath of a harsh winter’s thaw/freeze cycle can 55
