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

Francisco Bussetti at the Wooden Cow Gallery and Art Space!





Francisco Bussetti

Born in New York City in 1981, Francisco grew up around art and culture. His exposure to places like the MoMa and the MET shaped the way he looked at the world. Being a second generation American of Italian, English and Chinese decent has allowed him to interact with relatives from around the globe. When he was a young teenager his parents moved… Continue

Dash-Cam-Chaos

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.

AIA's questionnaire to APS Board Candidates

The local AIA chapter has published candidate responses to a questionnaire sent to all candidates for the upcoming election (February 3rd) for APS Board positions.



The five questions asked, while being innocuously self-serving coming from a professional association, are not nearly as revealing and interesting as are the answers.



In case you're wondering what APS Board Member District you live in, you can… Continue

Fun @ the UNM campus / Cheap Thrills

I realize the perspective might be different for folks who've lived here all their lives or who went to school at UNM but as an outsider fresh to the scene, I had a lot of fun ambling around the UNM campus for several hours last Sunday.



I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of trees planted around the campus. Right now, with the leaves gone you can really check out the beautiful…

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

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.…

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
