Laches, Lackeys, and The Great Outdoors

The Sunday Poem: Richard Vargas... why my ex-wife will go to heaven

Richard is one of Albuquerque's strongest voices. He continues to walk down your streets, taking it all in and making sense. Today's poem about his ex-wife partially takes place in his ex-home, Rockford, Illinois. Incredibly, I lived there for 18 years myself.

Vargas is the editor of the poetry journal Mas Tequila Review. It just published its first issue (available for a reasonable six bucks). Purchase and publication info is… Continue

Islam & the Quran

How's everbody doing?

This isn't a blog as much as it is a question: Is there anywhere in Albuquerque that offers an introduction to Islam and the Quran?

UNM Continuing Ed and the Islamic Center don't list anything like that. Nothing here on DCF.

I just want to know more about this faith given all the bad press from both media and Christian fundamentalists. Not looking for a conversion experience, just knowledge.

Any suggestions?

Recovery Cat 8.7.2010

The more consciousness is influenced by prejudices, errors, fantasies, and infantile wishes, the more the already existing gap will widen into a neurotic dissociation and lead to a more or less artificial life, far removed from healthy instincts, nature, and truth. C.J. Jung et. al., Man and His Symbols (1964), p. 49.

Putting the Comic Back in Trauma (& Other Gutsy Moves)--NSFW

DO NOT CLICK to read more of this post on Duke City Fix unless you are of a sexually mature age and capable of stomaching some perky humor with your sexual explorations and exploitations. This is not for kids: I intend to be "graphic" when I discuss the work of Tamara Zibners in the Banal Retentive Show at SCA Contemporary... and what I have to say about Kris Mill's Gazebo might just turn you inside out. Feel free to sneak out:… Continue

Getting Your ABQ Groupon On

*Disclaimer: It was just pointed out to me that Groupon advertises on this site. That shows you how much I pay attention to online ads. This is through our Google Ads connection, so it's all fed by Google, not through a direct deal with us. My post is my own personal views as a Groupon user and is not connected with any advertisements on DCF. I have no monetary interest in this.…

While looking for another place to review Thai Vegan, my new favorite restaurant (and where I took my friend and client, Kerry, for lunch today), I ran across this website:

I thought some of my veggie friends (and some of YOURS!) might like to know about it - apparently it is nationwide.

Summer Thursday Jazz Nights at Outpost continue this Thursday, August 5

This week at Outpost it's Resonance featuring vocalist, Patti Littlefield and low brass maestro, Mark Weaver in an unusual and experimental exploration of spatial sound: no chordal instruments, just tuba and voice, re-fashioning material ranging from standards to jazz and pop tunes to original compositions.

And for the second set of the evening, it's Equilibrio, a quartet whose concept “is based on balanced improvisation through the vehicle of original compositions… Continue

Where in Burque is Adelita? Summer of 2010

Ms. Barelas Babe is a bit under the weather today, what with her broken ankle and all. She isn't able to post her usual fabulous blog today, so I jumped at the opportunity to ressurect my Where in Burque series.

Of course none of these fabulous pictures would have been possible without the keen… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Jimmy Santiago Baca... 1-04-04

"Born in New Mexico of Indio-Mexican descent, Jimmy Santiago Baca was raised first by his grandmother and later sent to an orphanage. A runaway at age 13, it was after Baca was sentenced to five years in a maximum security prison that he began to turn his life around: he learned to read and write and unearthed a voracious passion for poetry." Thus begins his 'official' biography as related on… Continue

Recovery Cat 7.31.2010

With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks. You've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books. You're very well read. It's well known. But something is happening here and you don't know what it is. do you, Mister Jones? Dylan, "Ballad of a Thin Man" (1965).

Thai Vegan ROCKS

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the food at Thai Vegan, which opened last week at Osuna near San Mateo.

I confess - I've had 4 meals in the past 5 days there!!!

As a vegetarian (not vegan), the menu is diverse, the "faux" meat is delicious, and there are plenty of vegetable-only dishes to choose from too.

I've sampled the Pad Thai, the spring rolls, the golden tofu appetizer, the Cashew "Chicken", the fresh Ginger stir fry, the tempura vegetables,… Continue
