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

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

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

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

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

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

Baker Architecture + Design
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

As part of the mission of the Arts Alliance
to be a provider of information about the arts and culture industry in Albuquerque, the organization started a twice monthly enewsletter called State of the Arts. It's put together by yours truly, and it's gotten good feedback. There are always several local stories, as well as trends about the art and culture industries regionally and nationally.
You, too, can… Continue

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

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

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
