July 2009 Stories (129)

Biggest headline ever?

With tomorrow's date (give or take forty years) and the recent passing of Walter Cronkite it seemed timely that while cleaning our office storeroom this morning we would come across an old Albuquerque Journal.

Below the fold:…

Saturn in the Desert

It doesn’t take long in this City to find things that are oddly out of place. Vestiges of prior lives left behind by the unyielding forces of change Such is the case of this elaborate tribute to Saturn located in an empty lot in SE Albuquerque. At first I believed this to be a piece of art, but then I thought it could simply be left over from part of the neighboring trailer park or some business that closed and the building has long since been… Continue

Frozen treats to beat the heat!

Anyone who has grown up or lived for a period of time in the Midwest knows the glories of frozen custard. My wife, Megan, and I met in Milwaukee when both of us did volunteer service in the inner-city, and some of our first dates were at frozen custard shops -- like Kopps, Gilles and… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Jennifer Frank... Daylight Savings I.

Jennifer Frank’s poems have surfaced slowly but steadily throughout the years in journals and anthologies such as Kalliope, Phoebe, Harwood Anthology and Looking Back to Place, online, in galleries and on the occasional city bus. She lives in Albuquerque, NM, with her husband and son.

"Trains and time are two recurring themes in my work. The main image for this poem arrived when my reading about trains online led me to an article about… Continue

Che la Ke -- Multimedia Performance Collective -- Monday, July 20

WHAT: Che la Ke is a multimedia performance collective stemming from a dynamic collaboration between these Brooklyn artists:

VJ Sarah (rootsy, raw, and relevant videos mixed live), Jon Bozeman (rhythmic folk stories weaved through a southern perspective on big city experiences, with necessary sarcasm) & Dave Treut (punk-folk and musical oddities that soar with imagination).

They will be stopping in Albuquerque for a one night only… Continue

Isotopes - A View from Outfield

Last night took the two boys, 4 & 8, to the Isotopes game. Only seats available were in the grass -- seemed like a great call. Relaxing, green & cool out there. Lots of diversions & entertainment and 6 bucks apiece ... all good. I really do like the park, it's a jewel and a lot more family friendly than your average Major League stadium. But what's with this trend to blast music at piercing decibel levels to introduce each batter? That, compounded with the non-stop da-da-da-DA-da-DA… Continue

We had a great tour of Albuquerque Studios

This week the boss and I had the honor and privelage of a visit to the Albuquerque Studios, where Breaking Bad and Terminator Salvation and The Spirit (to name a few) were filmed. It was totally awesome. To begin, we spent time with the Chief Operating Office and the Vice-President (who are also husband and wife) and the Studio Concierge, a very pretty young woman who has an incredible job. They were very interested in our business and what we do. I was impressed by their desire to do business… Continue

Wow! I've really been slacking off when it comes to posting stuff here. It is amazing just how fast time goes by.

Anyway, I'm super excited for our newest production, Neil LaBute's Fat Pig. I have to admit, one of the big reasons as to why I am so excited about this show is because I'm actually in it! Oh yes, I have move up from Stage Manager to leading actress. /Whew It feels so great to finally be onstage and not just to move set pieces or taking props off and on.

Two a Day: reclaiming the brick

My two a day was cut short this week, or rather, it was redistributed. I worked in the back yard for four hours on Thursday instead of the customary two, I wanted it to look nice for company. Naturally, after such a herculean effort (it actually did kick my butt) I took Friday off. Here is how the week went:


Whoah it was hard to scrape… Continue

My sweetie and I checked out the brand new Cosmo Tapas, in east Nob Hill tonight. They're in the old Martini Grill space at Central and Sierra. They've only been open since Monday, but you wouldn't know it based on the food, drinks, atmosphere or service. It's a pretty smooth operation and absolutely enjoyable.

To start, we chose a couple of drinks from their mixed drink menu. My sweetie had a Huaso, which is essentially a pisco sour. Pisco is like a grape brandy, which is the… Continue

Is Email Dead?

Blackberrying, Facebooking, and twittering through life these days makes me think EMAIL may be as DEAD as the Postal Service. No one answers or writes a good juicy long email anymore...And no one it seems, actually READS a long one very carefully.

Also along these lines how is the DCF audience number-count doing in 2009?
