His Majesty the Mayor?

I'm getting my news through that modern telegraph of text-messaging, but apparently a court ruled the Marty can run for a third term. The justification given was state law trumps city law. So, anyone know what's up? And anyone have a spare crown and scepter to pass off to the feudal lord of The Q, his majesty Marty Chavez?

¿Donde Esta El Matador?



No bull!



It is a sad, sad day for Sandia High School. Some one is playing a really sick joke or wants to get first hand bull fighting instructions. Either way the Matador is missing and he doesn't have his bull.



Keep and eye out for a 450 pound Matador and contact the proper… Continue

got stuff?

There's an interesting discussion in the works over at m-pyre. The gals are talking about how much stuff matters, as a social currency, divining rod, and litmus test. The stuff you listen to, read, watch, eat... this stuff (I think) reflects that other, more nebulous stuff that you cultivate in your spirit and in your life.



The Buddhists have a valid take on attachments, and they might even be right. But… Continue

Getting Into a Gallery

Not all artists are interested in being represented by a gallery.



But many are.



How does one do that, though? Approaching a gallery in a professional way is the best start. It's not about hat-in-hand, sad sack earnestness. You have to understand that most galleries, especially here in Albuquerque, are very small businesses, run by a small handful of people (many are run by one person), and most don't make a zillion bucks doing it. If you want to make a bunch of money,… Continue

"Sunday School" variety show TONIGHT in Barelas

It's billed as "the 505's freshest variety show" and I'm not arguing. Sunday School is Albuquerque's monthly performance art tradition that's still going strong the last Sunday of the month in Barelas. That's TONIGHT for those of you without a calendar.



Sunday School: The 505's Freshest Variety Show. Putting together a monthly performance of New Mexico's finest musicians, poets, dancers, and funny ass performers. Usually the… Continue

I'm Back

Well, I am back. Where was I? Oh yeah, Leroy Pacheco. Leroy Pacheco lived next door to us and we both lived next to the Country Club Market at 10th and Coal. The owner of the store (I only remember his first name as Ronnie) I think was also our landlord but I am not certain. I wasn't the one paying the rent so I don't know for certain that Ronnie was our landlord.



Anyway, Leroy. Leroy Pacheco was such a nice kid. He was very well mannered and never used profanity. Not even when we… Continue

My Day in (Traffic) Court

On Christmas Eve, I did a stupid thing. I was making a left turn at a photo-stop intersection, was behind a car that had a higher profile than I did and when the car turned out of my line of sight, realized that I was going to go through the red. Either that, or slam on my brakes not knowing what was behind me (turns out from the pictures an SUV). I went through, and about 7 days later received my red-light camera fine in the mail.



I… Continue

NM Filmmakers Conference, now at the Hyatt in Albuquerque

This is the third time for the NM Filmmakers Conference (produced by the NM Film Office), and what started as some valuable information and a good chance to connect has really blossomed this year, becoming the one 'must attend' event for the state's film industry.



Two years ago, it seemed like everyone pretty much knew each other, but this year with 700+ attendees, most of them working professionals in film and related media, it's a real sign to me… Continue

Tinkertown

My kids are on Spring break this week, my husband is at a fancy art conference and so I have taken off work to hang out with the kids.

I said that we would have some "cultural literacy' activities. In our family this can mean a trip to the ballet, a play, a visit to the feed store, lunch at the Salvadoran restaurant or the Vietnamese restaurant or watching a movie that we think they should know about.

Yesterday's activity was Tinkertown . Tinkertown is a wonderful place in Sandia… Continue

Yum, spring.

I notice that my eating habits take a subtle turn around this time of year. One week it's bison stew and baked potatoes, the next I'm raiding the recipes from The Greens and stuffing feta and cucumbers into whole wheat pita halves. Last weekend my mother and I went out past Old Town to drop into the filled-to-the-gills Aquarium and Botanic Gardens (OMG!!! Baby Sharks!! LOL).…

Environmental activism

...I think its more like a religious conversion really. Kind of like a biblical "take up your bed and follow me" moment. My husband and I went to see Bill McKibben speak at UNM yesterday. And all I can think about is how twisted our economy is. If the elementary rules of economics were true, then we wouldn't have such a demand for such useless stuff, right? In a free market economy our own deterministic forces would drive down the cost of excavation for raw materials, and locally produced goods… Continue
