Gary Brower is a familiar face at almost any New Mexico poetry venue, and he also travels widely to read his work. We know him not only as a fine poet, but also as the editor of Malpais Review, an exciting local poetry journal that puts out quarterly issues of up to 300 pages and has moved far…

Burque Music Scene: Mystic Vision

While my heart will always belong to the blues, reggae is a close second.   The Harder They Come soundtrack was one of my favorite albums as a kid and is still in constant rotation in my playlists.  I love reggae.

Back in 1993, three La Cueva students felt the same way about reggae and…

It's the weekend! Should we meet up at Dave & Buster's?

Maybe not.

Last weekend ten of us met up at Albuquerque's latest national chain to shoot zombies, eat bar food, and drink alcoholic beverages. All three things happened, it's true. But here's why none of us want to return.

  1. Depending when you arrive, the wait outside can be awful. True, D&B has just opened and is experiencing the classic ABQ opening month bump. Four members of our group showed up at 4:30 (this was on Saturday) while the rest straggled…

Homegrown Hoops Talent on Display at ENMU-WNMU Small College Games Saturday (11/22) at Pit

It's great to see two of New Mexico's four rural colleges from opposite sides of the state get together in the big city  -- Albuquerque -- for a basketball doubleheader featuring the men's and women's teams.

Hopefully there will be a big crowd, with Albuquerqueans on the rosters of these teams from Silver City (Western New Mexico University) and Portales (Eastern New Mexico University).. About half of the roster members are New Mexicans, unlike…

Walking on broken glass

One of my favorite spots in Albuquerque is a dump. Literally.

It's hard to believe the bosque is home to one of Albuquerque's old dumps, but it's a glorious open air mosaic surrounded by a canopy of cottonwoods. What's really fun is that it predates the widespread use of plastic and foam, so it's almost all…

Levitated

Couldn't resist.  I had to go to the Levitated Toy Factory open house and check out this mystery business. Through the crush of people I was able to take a few photographs of what happens behind their doors.  There were giant cardboard structures and small cardboard pieces for people to play with. Their …

Albuquerque’s Pigeons: Fines, Hawks, & British Logic

NOB HILL--Feeding pigeons is a criminal act...feeding feral pigeons, that is.  Even if you have a regular old bird feeder and it attracts “significant numbers of pigeons” or creates “conditions that constitute a pigeon nuisance” you can be fined.  Of course, warm-hearted souls who sit on park benches and toss…
