Not Just for Pasties Anymore

Upper Peninsula farm

While browsing the Pasty.com Web site I came across this short video I thought I’d share:

“Down on the farm”

Okay, so “That’s why I wish again that I was in Michigan” is not “Oklahoma” or “Stars Fell on Alabama” or “Blue Hawaii.” I think you’ll agree the cowbell is a nice touch, though.

It’s one of the Pasty.com “Weekly Pasty Cameo” features — mini-documentaries — about different aspects of life in the UP. Good stuff.

Previously I’ve mentioned the Pasty Cam daily photo on Pasty.com, which is based in Calumet in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

What's next: Oil change by Pasty.com?

Pasty.com is also a place to check on historical happenings for each day, discover local artists and businesses, or —imagine that—place an order for the meat pie that launched the multi-faceted Web site.

I’ve heard unconfirmed reports that you’ll soon be able to enjoy a root canal and get your oil changed at Pasty.com.

Now, if only the talented folks behind the operation could come up with a new song about the state.
