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.

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

Dave's prose

Dave’s prose read like there was a jazzy high-hat and snare beat slowly lulling on the hi-fi in the background. Like the saunter of a seasoned musician walking on the sidewalk steps behind you, you just couldn’t help but pace yourself. You slow it down, you stride.

His words were dirty like that very sidewalk you’ve newly found yourself strutting on, appealling to all of your senses like a new town. The subtle change in light, the mood, the smell of the air, and litter in the gutter. The… Continue

The End is Near...



Not of the world, but of the this season of cranes, eagles, and snow geese at the Bosque del Apache. That's almost like the end of the world to me, as it is my favorite place in all of New Mexico (which means it is my favorite place in all of the world). Soon, the masses of birds will begin migrating northward, not to return until October. Presently the bird count numbers are quite high. If you've not been able to get there this year, I hope a few… Continue

Friday the 13th

Contemplating the horrors one expects on a typical Friday the 13th, and wondering if anyone out there is experiencing anything bad happening today. I, myself, have not, so far. Of course, yesterday was such a waste of a day for me, I haven't had the nerve to leave the house yet today :)

Personally, I think luck is what you make it. If you believe in good luck, you'll have it. Conversely, if you think your Friday the 13th will be filled with horrors, then it will be, or at least, you'll… Continue

Thank you Mr. Napkin Artist

Wednesday night. Nob Hill Bar & Grill. It is 8:30 pm, and I've put in three solid hours of networking. Power handshakes. Greasy business cards. Fake laughs. And there you are. As I'm ready to walk out the door. With a tap on the shoulder, and a quick turn to look, you made my week... with your napkin art.



What a great gift, being handed a portrait of yourself on a bar napkin at the end of a long day. As an artist myself, what can I say… Continue

How to get rid of the hiccups.

Long ago, back in September of 2008, I met this slightly unattractive mysteriously irresistible Jewish boy named Kenny; we had the instant love hate relationship of a couple who had been together for about 15 years the instant we set eyes on one another. By the time we left each others company, it was like we had been married at least 35 years. We almost beautifully hated and resented each other. I loved him more for it. But I simultaneously couldn't wait until he was outta my sight. Late that… Continue

Calling Dr. Love - Martini Mike's Guide to Romance this VD

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I felt the obligation to dig deep down into my treasure trove of romantic gestures and share with you. Let’s just say I’ve “been around the block”.
