My Profile Picture

Time to change my picture again. I notice many people have had the same profile picture for as long as I've been around, which isn't that long really, but it seems they don't change. Quite a few DCFers change frequently. I guess I am falling into the latter category for a few reasons.

First, I feel lots of changes going on lately regarding me. After a few years of nearly complete inactivity because of a physical malady, I found myself… Continue

It was not a good week for Albuquerque DWI Attorney, John Higgins, seen at this KOBtv link threatening APD officers on video . The powers of the Cop-Dash-Cam are pretty revealing.

Pregnancy and construction

I am less than 4 weeks from my "due date" and since last September I have been keeping a blog. This week I posted an update on my last minute remodel to our Master Bathroom. Nothing like a contractor to decide that it's a good idea to start a remodel in her 8th month of pregnancy. What can I say, maybe the chemicals got to my brain after all these years.

Anyway, this week on my blog I decided to post a slew of designer/contractor tips… Continue

Revolutions International Theatre Festival 09: All the Stuff you Didn't See

Hola Internet Community!

So, I’ve been keeping you up to speed about the things that you CAN see, but I thought it might be nice, on this beautiful Wednesday, to talk about the things you can’t see. As in, the things you already missed. Now, you might be all “Why would you tease me like that? This is inhumane!” But, if you’re anything like me, you might need the big picture. And a lot of this stuff you can YouTube or Google and see clips, so it will be like watching a theatre… Continue

Top 5 Cities to Build Wealth

Just found this article and had to click to see if my beloved Albuquerque maybe, just maybe was on the list. Well, it was! Albuquerque is number FIVE on the list! I've always said that this is a great place to live, but again and again we are ending up on the top lists for being a great place to be during the recession. So, keep your heads up people, Albuquerque ROCKS!!

Roadtrip circle- Socorro, T or C, Hillsboro, Silver City, Glenwood and more

One of the great things about living in Albuquerque is that it's roughly in the center of the state- this makes road trips throughout the state relatively easy- many can even be completed in a day. Last weekend we took a trip down south.…

Morning Fix: Spring Anticipation

for the love of curves, sparkle, and twirling tassels

I think growing up I never knew what beauty really was. Looking back at childhood pictures, I realize that I didn’t really acknowledge the common notions of fashion, beauty, or mainstream iconology. In the past few months I have spent an ample amount of time looking at family photos, so this is something that has been on my mind a great deal. Those of you who know me best know that this was spawned by some extreme family drama culminating in the… Continue

The Underworld

Today I attended a visit to the Burque Underworld with the Flickr group.

Photo by Kevin Eddy

It was a nice day and no rain in the forcast, perfect to visit the tunnels in the diversion channels.

It was a little wet, but not bad at all.

We saw a lot of grafitti.…

Some NM Christians in Panic

Tomorrow our State legislature is hearing testimony and possibly voting on a domestic partnership bill. Gov. Richardson has promised to pass it, and it looks like we finally have the votes for this important civil rights law to pass. I was listening to the local big Christian radio station, and, as usual, they are resorting to fear tactics to try to motivate listeners to call their congresspersons saying, "we must act now to protect our children and our grandchildren!" uh, yeah, from what? My… Continue

Predictions: A Duke City Pillbox of Uppers and Downers for 2009

TULANE & COAL SE--There will be winners and losers in the coming year. Here's my look at what's hot and what's not next year in the Duke City. Remember, although these predictions are a bargain (being worth approximately 20 times what they cost you) do not make any life changing decisions without professional advice.

1. Politicians

The Uppers: Mayor Martin Chavez, County Commissioner Deanna Archuleta, U.S.… Continue

Morning Fix: Be That Way


Added by Somegye on January 27, 2009 at 5:30am — 5 Comments

Hi Aaron

You posted an interest in my Music, and asked to be a friend.

I couldn't find a way to email you, so I am posting this.

I was a founding member of the Last Mile Ramblers in the early 70's. Our final reunion was in Spring 2007 at the Kimo Theater in Albuquerque. I have released 4 CD's from our 2 LP's, and many live recordings throughout the years.

There is also a DVD from our 2007 reunion, as a limited edition.

Since 1996 I have tried to stay musically active with a smaller… Continue

Half a day off, pissed away.

I took a half day of vacation to have an HVAC person and a locksmith come out to my new house. One canceled, and the other one was running so late that I would have had to cancel my evening clients to accomodate them. (He called after the time that he was supposed to be at my house to let me know he was running late.)

I have no more days off. The next people are going to have to come out on a Saturday.
