Trip to the local Coronado Mall

Trip to the local mall today to get some new books from the Barnes and Noble. I ran into Jonathan Miller who was signing books there at the Coronado Mall. Miller had two of his books, Crater County and La Bajada Lawyer, on the table and was signing them for customers who made the purchase. I hear at four o’clock today he will be giving away a signed poster to someone who ask for it.

After the book store we hit hot topics because all the twilight new moon items are in and my daughter… Continue

I remember when, episode 2

When I last wrote about my early days in the Duke City I let you all know that I found my journals in my attic and came across a “review” of the now defunct restaurant, Adam’s Table. If you care not to follow the link, I’ll provide a brief excerpt:

…when I tell you that these thought books also… Continue

Margaret Atwood

For those who haven't heard, Margaret Atwood is doing a reading at UNM on Monday evening from her new book, "The Year of the Flood," the post-apocalyptic/dystopic sequel (or is the prequel?) to Oryx & Crake. Atwood may be best known for her novel "The Handmaid's Tale." Her stuff is gruesome and creepy and edgy and gets under your skin.

The reading is at… Continue

The Life, Death, & Rebirth of the Nob Hill Motel

NOB HILL--So many of the old motels on East Central have been torn down that it is a pleasure to watch the rebirth of one of them. The Nob Hill Motel opened for business in 1937, the same year U.S Rte. 66 first came through Tijeras Canyon and headed west straight out Albuquerque's Central Ave. When that motel was boarded up I thought it was also surely headed for destruction. But drive by and take a look at her now. She looks as good as…

Abroad In The Land

Know what's awesome? Not in the continent-forming, solar flare, oceans rising to conquer the land sense, but in the d00d! sense of the word as it's used in parlance these days?

Road trips. Road trips rock.

Give me a car (and while you're at it, a competent driver, because I don't like to eat and drive at the same time and we should all be grateful for this), a couple of Micky Diaz's sausage bisquits, a tallish coffee, and a… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Merimee Moffitt... The Seco Bar, 1973

It takes a special kind of poet to write a great poem about a bar. The only other ones that come to mind are The Shooting of Dan McGrew and The Face on the Barroom Floor. Hang on to your hats and ponytails! And watch out for flying shot glasses! For you… Continue

What is UNM feeding the Athletic Department...pure rage?

It is a sad day when UNM Women's Soccer team finally makes it on ESPN for a cat-fight. During a game against BYU, one of the UNM players decided that playing fair was beneath her and today we have the ESPN footage to prove it.

Here is the link to watch the "highlights" of this event…

Local Findings This November

It’s amazing how a few extra-curricular activities outside work and home life can open doors to places you had no idea existed in this great city.

I recently came across two local businesses that I think as Albuquerque lovers we should embrace to help keep these places going.

Lucky for me these establishments tap into two of my passions, running and beer drinking. I like to stay balanced. So, here are my findings this month:

Slideshow: Dios de los Muertos, Albuquerque 2009

One of my favorite events of the year is the Marigold Parade in the South Valley here in ABQ. Video I shot last year is supposed to be used in a documentary, so I was anxious to get some new shots. There's about 30 photos in this slideshow. Webshots tends to leave out part of the photo on the larger shots, however you can get the vibe of the parade. Hit the link below to see the full shot of anything that catches your interest. Wish you were here...…

Ghosts of Halloween Past

Each Halloween is a little bit different. Some years I dole out the candy one by one, concerned that I may not have purchased enough to last the night. Other years the trick-or-treaters are few and far between, and I start tossing in generous handfuls of candy so that I do not get stuck with too much leftover candy.

Sometimes I get it just right, though that is a rarity.

Since last year was a meager year for trick-or-treaters, I… Continue

Muertos y Marigolds 2009

Slum dogs, gatos gordos, y hood rats were all present at the 2009 Muertos y Marigolds parade. After several years of hearing about this Dia de Los Muertos parade, we decided we were really missing out. First, we had to don the calavera makeup and proper attire.

Then we headed down to the South Valley around 3:15 or so, and lucked out, finding parking only a few blocks away from the… Continue
