It started with a call from ARTSlab Program Coordinator Eric Renz-Whitmore asking me if I was interested in helping a production crew with some sound editing. Hearing the exhaustion in his voice he put added the flavorful ending of "it's crazy and nuts around here if you want in on it"... how could I refuse!
I was introduced to a polite and informed individual who also had the hint of exhaustion in his voice. It was around 3pm when we spoke and the film was locked and being rendured.… Continue

Right now, the practice of sustainable farming is both in resurgence and in peril. Farmers worldwide face profound challenges to their survival. Worldwide and most acutely in indigenous communities unraveled by civil war, these challenges include all that is unpredictable in nature but also include industrial agribusiness influences that pressure farmers into increasing their yields with hybridized and genetically modified seed, create addiction to petroleum based… Continue

No, I didn't take a trip to California for exotic exploration of a natural land state
. I camped out at my kids' elementary school (over on the westside) in the hopes of getting them into the city of Albuquerque's before and after school "playground" program.
This is the second time I've camped out at Chaparral Elementary school, and… Continue

A la vey, I have to admit, I had never been to the VLA
until last week. I even work with astronomers and work at a place with a big giant planetarium
! I just never seemed to have the time to go.
My good friend is the outreach educator for the NRAO/VLA
and invited my daughter and me for a behind the scene tour. Oh.… Continue

Yes, I am walking the tightrope of inappropriateness and rules of use of Duke City Fix in order that I may enlist your help in becoming the first ever GOVERNOR OF THE RED SOX NATION
for the state of New Mexico.
You see, Red Sox Nation (and MLB) is running a contest to elect 50 Governors of Red Sox Nation (actually 49 Governors and one Mayor (Wash, DC). They already have a… Continue

Many people embrace this self loathing as americans, and why? We all have frailties as humans why not as a whole country? Isn't the idea of a mass of people even more disorienting? I am not denying the idea of growth or even change, but many people consider where they sit to be a falsity of them self. Isn't the world as we make it? We all play a intricate role in humanity whether it be Democrat, or Republican.
The idea that America is this evil money hungry machine is a mere fad and… Continue

"I'm not long for this world," he says, the thick hill country drawl slipping from between his tobacco-stained lips.
"None of us are," I reply, staring out across the river slowly slicing its way through the granite canyon.
Tony says he is an out-of-work horseman, on extended hiatus from his seasonal profession guiding the tinhorns through the thick woods of south Texas. Why he is here he won't say, but I think it's the landscape, at the same time stark and lush, that… Continue

Using the suggestions kindly provided in comments for a previous post, I made rounds. The result is not very encouraging... In order of increased pleasure:
Azuma - rejected sight unseen.
Mirai Express - turned out to be a fast food. Decent for what it is, but not what I wanted.
Kokoro - really small, 3 tables. Watch your timing. Also, customers pour their own tea, and I manged to… Continue

I commend this week's featured Albuquerque Etsy
, for liberal use of the color orange. Here is how MyStringTheory describes the person and the process behind the Etsy store:
'I am a violin teacher by day, and a crocheter by night. And morning. And afternoon. And sometimes my lunch break. I began playing with yarn as a… Continue

The last time I held a yard sale was almost exactly 19 years ago. I was 3 weeks away from giving birth to my firstborn, and had felt the nesting (and purging) instinct with a vengeance. We made enough money to buy items for the baby’s layette
and an expensive silk lampshade for a family heirloom antique lamp that I had foolishly decided should go in the nursery. (What was I… Continue

I am a... how do you say... Pug Pusher.
I volunteer locally with New Mexico Pug Resuce, and when I catch word of pugs in need of homes - the inner pug pusher in me comes out! Currently this local non-profit group has three more adoptable pugs. All three are 2-3 year old black pugs, two boys and one girl. I hear the boy and girl have grown very attached and adoption of both to one home is preferable.
Also, although several months out, please mark your calendars for… Continue

In this dreadful post graduate school quest for a real full time job with benefits, in this soul sucking, incredibly demeaning time, there is Mamma Mia! A summer movie that is what summer movies ought to be, sweet, fresh, funny, surprising, and surprisingly beautiful; I’ve seen it three times, once for every week that it has been out at the theater. My plan is to keep on going until I decide to run away and start my all girl… Continue

Today I lead a group of Flickr photographers

We left about 4pm from Rio Rancho, but I got us lost on our way there. We got there finally about about 5:30pm. The coniditions were perfect for photographs. It was cloudy with rain clouds but… Continue
