4 Places to Regain Your Sense of Beauty in New Mexico

We've all had those times when the earth seems to be spinning a little slower on its axis. When the wind kicks you around just a bit too much. It could be family issues, people issues or just really lousy traffic on your way to the grocery store.

When I have those sort of days/weeks/months I start thinking about putting some wheels to good use to get me away from it all for an hour or for a day. These are the places in New Mexico I turn to… Continue

Even Higher Than We Thought...

I was looking through one of my favorite celebrity gossip sites, UK's The Daily Mail, and came across an article about actor Seth Rogen's recent weight loss.

He is quoted as saying: 'I'm somebody who can barely breathe in Los Angeles, which is at sea level.

'I can't walk up a flight of stairs. Albuquerque is at an elevation of about two miles and the air is very thin.'

Was all the filming at Sandia Peak?

My Mission

Though we dwell in the shadow of the mountain, in these trying times there is hope.

Our heavenly father loves us and there is no greater proof of his love than popular music from the 1970's.

My mission is to help spread this message. Many of His earthly ambassadors are passing, "England" Dan Seals being the latest.

Do not let this legacy of love pass.

Peace be with… Continue

The Chainsaw Forest of Mark Chavez

2ND ST & PASEO DEL NORTE NW--For years chainsaw statues have been appearing where trees once stood. Twisting sculptures of wooden animals, of turtles and eagles, of cranes, ducks, beavers, raccoons, and woodpeckers stare improbably from lawns as our cars zip through the city. There is the wooden bear on Lead Ave. that I pass on my way to Tingley Beach. There are the front yards on Washington NE where maybe a half a dozen tree stump sculptures have… Continue

Why didn't I mention all this earlier?

I was recently voted best electronic act and best drummer in Albuquerque, and my band, Vertigo Venus, garnered Best punk band. I especially like the fact that the Alibi makes me sound like only a marketing guy by the time they get to Best drummer; never mind the fact that I played over 100 shows last year with Diverje and Vertigo Venus combined, or that I work my ass off for what I do... nah, that doesn't matter. They also mention that my music makes you think you're in a "Bush re-education… Continue

Fine Just the Way It Is

by Annie Proulx (Scribner $25)

Sometimes, one needs to take a deep breath before starting a book of short stories by Annie Proulx. It is not that her characters are depressing or hopeless. Quite the contrary, they are, more often than not, filled with hope and possibility. It is that Proulx, with remarkable emotional distance, drives her characters not only toward the abyss, but over the abyss. She has an incredible talent for succinctly covering… Continue

Tea Party on 15th

What do you know, our backwater has got its very own Tea Party. I think I'll skip. Maybe. I'm getting old for this kind of thing. I went to protect Russian House of Soviets against the communist putsch in 1991, but I hoped it would not be necessary in a mature republic like the U.S.A. But perhaps it is.
