I'M HERE!

I'm finally getting to move into the Burque! I've been living in Rio Rancid for about 8 years now, and am so happy to be moving to our new place up off of Tramway. Rio Rauncho just doesn't measure up to the Burque.



I've found several nice contractors: Quetzal Mechanical, who serviced our old furnace and nearly threw up, it was in such bad shape. We had him install another one. He's great, super professional, and most of all SHOWED UP WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD. Imagine… Continue

Some book reviews for January

Third Chapter

by Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux $25)


In The Third Chapter, the renowned sociologist, Dr. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, offers a strong counterpoint to the ambivalence that shrouds our clear view of people in their third chapters. She challenges the still prevailing and anachronistic images of aging by documenting and revealing the ways in which the years between fifty and seventy-five may, in fact, be the most transformative and… Continue

This Valentine's Day, Buy Local and Organic!

What kind of a statement would it be to give your sweetie chemically processed flowers with a carbon footprint the size of a wildebeest, grown by impoverished workers compensated little for their efforts? Now that's a romantic basis for your heart-felt sentiment! I might embellish some, but it's true that most of the flowers you purchase from traditional florists are grown near the equator in Africa or Latin America utilizing chemicals that may or may not even be legal here in the States. Worse… Continue

New Mexico still not ready for Gay and Lesbian Couples?

And is not ready for unmarried heterosexual couples either, for that matter. The domestic partnership bill is on life-support. Which means if it were my partner, I could not visit it in the hospital without bringing legal papers to allow me access. The argument against seems to come down to traditional values and religious beliefs. I can't do much about countering someone's religious beliefs, other than to point out they… Continue

With Robby in the Garden of Broken Glass

BRIDGE BLVD. & 2ND ST. SW--One mile south of here, over between the bike path and the river, is one of the most jaw-dropping sights of the urban landscape: a five acre "garden" of broken glass. And like any grown man, I thought that it would be the perfect spot to take my eight-year-old grandson...especially one who has been taken everywhere in the city from the Arboretum to the Zoo. "Jaded" is not a term I would use to describe such… Continue

Tea and Silence

There is a place we go when we hear a language we don’t understand, not just in passing, but when it fills the room and we can’t just move away. This experience brings a rare and blessed silence to our linguistic mind, which is otherwise compulsively occupied with providing a narrative to our moment-to-moment experience. The suspension of linguistic chatter sharpens our senses for visual and other clues about what is going on in the present, and opens the door to a dreamlike… Continue

The Hunt for Tingley Field (aka Tingley Park)

Shortly after I moved to Barelas, I discovered Tingley Park. With two little ones, Tingley Park was a far enough walk away from home to feel like an adventure and close enough for us to make a quick dash for home in case we needed to.



There was also the bonus of Tingley Park’s location across the street from the Rio Grande… Continue

Talking with Frenchie



I really want to use my first blog on DCF to tell people why I am so excited for Ain’t Misbehavin’, one of Popejoy’s upcoming shows. Disclaimer: I am currently one of Popejoy’s interns.



My name is Audrey and throughout my teen years I was an avid American Idol fan. I watched season after season, as the torch was passed from idol to idol. I still have special memories of the second… Continue

the past... three weeks?

The time was three weeks ago, and I went to see one of my favorite bands in the world, the Gluey Brothers, at the Launchpad. As always, the boys threw a great show, and to my surprise, before their final song, they called me onto the stage to sing "Donut Quota" (which I did a cover of) with them - which was perhaps one of the most awesome things that's ever happened to me; I grew up listening to the Gluey Brothers, so being on stage with them, and singing one of my favorite songs, was unlike… Continue

Burlesque Noir

I am not sure exactly where to begin to blog my experience in burlesque. I think the best thing to do is just start writing. :) Let me introduce myself.



My name is Holly Rebelle and I have for the past 5 years run the local burlesque troupe, Burlesque Noir. I got the idea after seeing local classic burlesque girls shake their thing at a fetish show I was part of. I loved what they did but felt I wanted to do a modern burlesque troupe that used modern music and themes. I also wanted… Continue

Six Years of Bump and Grind in 'Burque Part 1

Valentines Day has never really been a big Holiday for me. It's not that I'm not the romantic type, I am. Or that I don't have someone special in my life, I do. It's just that, well, I've never gone in for the crass commercialism of the event. I don't need no stinkin' holiday to tell me when it's okay to buy the man I love chocolate. Or in our case, new kitchen gadgets.



This Valentines Day however, will mark a very special anniversary for me. Six years ago this Valentines Day, I sat… Continue
