Facebook, Ning & the www

I continue to enjoy the Community Blog of Albuquerque, the Duke City Fix. I have started several groups and added some pictures and done what I could to promote the web as I enjoy it. I have very recently begun a journey with FACEBOOK and find it to be in line with Ning in where they are both going.

As one who bought domain names and did it all on my own...the newer online communities that do… Continue

An Open Letter to Everyone Except Martin Chavez

NOB HILL--I have said many times that 90% of us like at least 50% of what Mayor Chavez has done. But there is one thing and only one thing that differentiates the current mayor from everybody else who is running or even thinking of running: Sprawl Mesa. Martin Chavez has done what he could to make life easier for out of state companies like SunCal to sell the city's future and sustainability for short-term profits.

Short-Sighted Money

It all fits. There is the loop road.… Continue

Theatre - now, today, this weekend.

Did you know that Albuquerque has more theatre than any city of its relative size?

There is so much going on here, that the Albuquerque Theatre Guild, a 5013C just launched a brand-new website for all theatre enthusiasts - actors, stage hands, and especially you, the audience.

Now, at Albuquerque Theatre Guild, there is a full summary of all of this week's plays and performances… Continue

Women's New Moon / Moon Lodge Healing Circles

I look around me at the state of Mother Earth, and see the destruction of our natural resources. I look around me at women, being abused, beaten, raped, and seeking help. We have been disrespecting our women for much too long, not valuing her input, her opinions, her side of the story. We no longer respect her. Nor do we respect Mother Earth. I believe the two are tied together. We destroy Mother Earth because we have no respect for the women in our lives, our mothers, sisters, aunts, wives,… Continue

Inn Plain Sight

The USA Network's TV Show "In Plain Sight" filmed a few scenes of the next season's opener here at our small inn this past Monday. They set the place up as they liked it on Friday, including moving out Rol's pool table and turning that room into a bedroom. Our dining room became a living room again for the first time in 9 years. They returned Monday just before 6 am to set up and start the shoot. They were here all day and the last of them were out of here just before 9pm.

What a… Continue

"ONE bomb is too many..."

Ed Grothus

We are heartbroken to hear that EDWARD BERNARD GROTHUS, 85, of Los Alamos died Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009 of cancer. Ed Grothus was known internationally as ATOMIC ED and his passing is noted with honor, sadness, and a genuine feeling of respect by those of us who… Continue

Building Boom in Barelas

With the economy taking a dive and people losing jobs and (struggling to get their unemployment benefits), it seems like an odd time for a neighborhood to grow by increasing housing and services, but that is what has been happening in Barelas, even after our current recession began.

There are the Barelas Townhomes across from the famed Barelas Coffee Shop, the Barelas… Continue

Albuquerque Architects Baker A+D Unveil New Site

Baker Architecture + Design

Albuquerque, NM

We want to share our updated portfolio and website with our Albuquerque friends and colleagues. It's always hard to make time to update the site, but in this "economic downturn" / these "uncertain times" (OK, who here is sick of hearing these two phrases?), we had this opportunity to take stock of what we've done over the last 6 years. We have a lot of new… Continue

Keep in Touch with ABQ Arts with State of the Arts newsletter

We Won the People's Choice Awards Thanks to the Fix!

It's finally official. We won the design contest that I blogged about for the use of 3form at NHBG. This is really cool because I know that we would not have done it without the help of Duke City Fix. We narrowly won, by two one hundreths! It's actually quite funny - we were the TOP rated project and we received only 2.7 out of 5 stars. So, clearly the… Continue

The only downside...

There is nothing quite so satisfying than the feeling of a show finally coming together for opening weekend. The cast and crew have put in a lot of time and effort into this show and it really shows.

While the opening weekend is finally over for The Glass Menagerie and while the idea of actually being able to have some free time during the week sounds awesome, I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what to do with all the free time. True, I could catch up on my World of Warcraft… Continue

Top Ten Reasons to Invest in the Albuquerque Art Scene (Bad Economy or Not!)

As a professional artist and gallery owner, I am getting sick and tired of hearing people say that art is a great investment, during GOOD times. Why only during good times? Good times or bad, art is a GREAT investment. I once read a quote that said "During good economic times, people collect art, but during bad economic times, people invest in art". I wish I could remember where and when I read this so I could credit the person who said it. The point is, art is not just a luxury item, it IS an… Continue
