SUMMER READING: Finally wrapping around the tale end of a huge collection of short stories by T.C.Boyle. It has been a fun journey to read this phone book sized collection (700 pages or so) of remarkably fresh…

Carnage of Signage

Much has been made of the recent political campaign sign chaos. Combined with the usual We Buy Homes, I Fix Brakes and we are having a Yard Sale , this was the perfect storm (will this expression never end?) of signage carnage. Not to mention the raging inferno of the court battles lending us these instant classic headlines: 10 Signs 10 Trips to Court, City Zoning Inspector's Car Windows Smashed . The horror.

Before the next swathing of… Continue

Apricot overload in the 'hood

Picking Apricots

It's apricot season in Albuquerque. Whether it's you, your neighbor, or your friend, chances are there's an apricot tree in your life laden with overripe fruit this week. Now.

I've tried (and failed) at plenty of canning endeavors. This is the best apricot preserves recipe I've… Continue

Weekend Hangover Report or " How I learned to love Imbibe"!

Dios Mio! Imbibe I did! Did anyone get the license plate of that old Ford pickup truck that ran over my head last night in Nob Hill? I’m still picking hay out of my hair. Ouch. Is that goat #2 I smell? More good times that involve booze in the old Duke City. I've got the Bloody Marys all lined up for the usual… Continue

In Search of the Man Whisperer

The father of St. Francis of Assisi was an asshole. The father (Bernardone, but we'll call him Bernie) would wait for the great saint to re-enter their hometown of Assisi, and then Bernie would follow Francis around screaming at him, "you are a disgrace to the family!" "you are worthless!" "you are an embarrassment to your mother and I!"

We can often withstand many of the negative voices of those who do not and can not understand the path we have chosen, yet the voice of our father strikes… Continue

Interview with 7000 BC Comics Collective

Little did I know that New Mexico had its very own underground comics collective, 7000 BC. The stated mission of the organization is to "provide opportunities for comics writers and artists to develop their personal styles and storytelling "voices," while promoting an understanding of the cultural significance of comic art through seminars and workshops". Pretty righteous stuff huh?

Martin Chavez and Bottled Water: Days Late, Dollars Short, Feudal Metaphors Right on Time

Yay! Marty against bottled water! But what's this? The whole San Juan Chama project from years back has a small link (to the top of the left column) for the San Juan Chama bottle water giveaway. The link is broken, but the water bottle giveaway was real enough. So what's the… Continue

Save the wombats or I want that guy's job

The BBC had this article today.
Australia's top treasury official is taking five weeks leave to look after endangered wombats. I would love to do that.

I have recently lost my dog D.J. Or, as we call her, Baby D. Her name stands for Dachsundicus Jiganticus because she looks like a giant weiner dog. Originally, though, I meant for it to mean Dutchess Judy because I thought the dog from Fox and the Hound was named Duke. Really, though, she is a full-bred Golden Retriever on her mother's side and a full-bred Basset Hound on her father's side. She has been registered as lost at http://www.petharbor.com/… Continue

9 Chickweed Lane

Today's AbqJournal comics page (Thursday, June 26th, 2008) has the oddest editorial comment e-v-e-r. In black border under the comic, 9 Chickweed Lane, it sez: Above comic subbed for content. Strip available at abqjournal.com/comics tomorrow.

Wha??? The comics are being expurgated?

Here's the not-fit-for-print comic:

Friday night geekfest with Selsun Blue

Now that Battlestar Galactica has run its course, what's a geek to do this Friday night? See the Selsun Blue show at RB Winnings this Friday night, of course. When my husband first saw the Selsuns, he loved them so much that he swore they'd play at his wedding. Fast forward five years and my husband was the Selsuns' drummer and sure enough, I was walking… Continue

Old Town Up Close

It's not just for tourists. Old Town- that place where we take our out of town friends for an afternoon stroll - is saying "Yoohoo, sailor" to the town at large. My suggested prescription for a Wednesday evening in summer: start at Seasons with a margarita (with their house made sweet and sour - try the Hornitos version at $8). Climb down from the cantina (happy hour runs from 4-6:30) and head to the… Continue
