The Sunday Poem: Tanaya Winder... The Impermanence of Human Sculptures

The amazing Tanaya Winder looks at life itself...as well as art.  This wonderful piece tackles the twist of time with both courage and brilliance.

 

I come from the Duckwater Shoshone and Southern Ute nations. I was raised on the Southern Ute Indian reservation in southern Colorado; I consider…

Breaking Bad at the Railyards



Looking like the full moon nesting in the bare trees of South Broadway, an eerie light shown. That bright light visible over the Downtown area was in a huge box of lights set on a gantry crane over the downtown railroad yards. 

Albuquerque residents are growing used to the occasional odd bright light in the city at night. We have come to know that they indicate a 'movie/tv shoot' is…

The Way It Was

We live in a time of great tension. Some of us want it just the way it was. Some of us understand why that can’t be.

Martha Graham always looked forward. In the 1970s, when she was no longer dancing she began to confer roles closely associated with her on new company…

My Life As A Duke City Waitress

 

The last two years of my life have been a roller coaster.  January of 2009 I got laid off from my job at a place I worked for 10 years.  I quickly got another job, but I’ll only say that I was not a “good fit” and I literally walked out after three months.  I applied for every job I could and received many “thanks, but no thanks” letters from prospective employers.

 

I ended up…

Explaining E-Fairness

E-fairness has been in the news recently, and there are a lot of takes, a lot of numbers, and a lot of opposing arguments.  As an independent business, Bookworks supports this sales tax legislation, and since it's a topic not everyone's well-versed on (and I've had practice explaining it in detail to Congressman Heinrich and a staffer of Senator Udall's), here's as brief a primer as I can create:

For a bit of background:  Way back in 1992, when we all had dial up modems, and the only…

Base State Budget on Economic Development



With only a few weeks left in the 50th legislature the halls are filled with all kinds of aphorisms about our state’s budget.  The usual dichotomy is between those who want to cut spending and those who want to to raise revenues.  Underneath each option is a wide range of specific proposals, but there is another force at play driving our state’s budget and our local economy, that until recently has seen little attention. 

Tax expenditures, the tax…

Upgrading to HD: Tricky To Get but HD Rocks!

Well, I did it!  I upgraded to HD.  It wasn’t easy, or cheap, but I wanted the best TV ever because I’m a movie junkie and I work hard and I deserve it.  Here are some of my observations:

 

HD TV rocks.  Why?  Because it’s an artistic experience, with visuals that are a leap above normal similar to taking off your sunglasses in an art gallery.  It clears up your vision so you can see details.  Today I watched the movie “Troy” with Eric Bana and Peter O’Toole.  I love this movie…

Always have the person's body facing one direction or another, usually at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the camera. Always have subjects put their weight on the back foot rather than distributing their weight evenly on both feet.
