Because I won the tickets to see The Velocity of Gary (Not His Real Name)
, I promised to write a review of the play. Here it is.

I am the only person that I know that has an alexa toolbar at the bottom of my page. I don't know why I like to see what the traffic rankings are for different sites but to know that my blog over at progressivechange.org shot up over a million sites in the last two days makes me very happy.
Anyway, I just now noticed that Google has moved from #2 to #1 finally conquering Yahoo. Myspace has moved down to #8 while facebook is hanging in at #5. Hulu.com a buzz site not really known… Continue

Cross posted to the Desert of the Real Economic Analysis
The philosopher and political theorist Hanna Arendt developed the meme “the banality of evil” in reference to Nazi Adolf Eichmann. Eichmann was a senior Nazi official on trial in Israel. Arendt covered the trial of Eichmann.
Arendt was taken by the banality of Eichmann, a bureaucrat in the Nazi holocaust. The term was drawn from the fact that so… Continue

I've always been a big fan of the word Official. But like in the "Official Secret Decoder Ring" sense.
But today's news is Official, but not in that sense. On Thursday afternoon I got a phone call from the director of the Creative Writing Program at UNM to let me know that I'd been accepted into the MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) for next fall. This was a huge relief for me as I'd been sweating it out.
The next step is to somehow get awarded a teaching assistantship, which… Continue

Chances are pretty good that you've seen an email in recent days about NM House Bill 725 -- the one that proposes not limiting incentives for film and media industry, but eliminating them entirely. I realize I was being a little naive when I thought that something like this would never get out of committee -- I mean, New Mexico has become one of the top production centers in the world these past few years, almost from scratch, and we continue to be the model other states look at for a package… Continue

Origins of The Exquisite Corpse:
"Among Surrealist techniques exploiting the mystique of accident was a kind of collective collage of words or images called the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse). Based on an old parlor game, it was played by several people, each of whom would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal part of it, and pass it on to the next player for his contribution. The game was adapted to… Continue

Today I went to NM Dancewear as my ballet slippers were, well I had 3 ballet slippers but none had a match.
I hadn't taken note before that they had the same door size poster of Mikhail Baryshnikov that I stared at 5 days a week for many years as a pre-teen and teenager. The poster hung across from the bar so if you were in the front… Continue

I'm inside one of my quasi-regular news blackout phases, partially the result of being put in a walking cast for two months. The connection may not be obvious, but spending a lot of time off your feet means being put into a hyper-observant, hyper-ruminative mode. Which means you're already on input overload and have enough to muse and masticate and roll around inside your head--you don't need economic woes and wars clunking around in there too.
Being under sedentary restrictions also… Continue

The one-woman show was brought by Granhoj Dans of Denmark Thursday night to kick off this year’s Global Dance Fest. And kick it does: this piece alternates between visceral, cerebral, and dreamlike as our heroine moves and sings in ways you’ve never heard or seen. I promise.
I won’t give away too much (not that there’s an actual plot), but multi-instrumentalist Anne plays herself as a musical instrument--with a cello bow--while vocalizing the resultant sounds. And she has a voice,… Continue

Today in my dorm room in New Orleans I watched the live feed of the senate debate on SB 12 (the domestic partnership one). Being a bit of a political junkie, I found the whole thing inherently fascinating, and was especially appreciative of the New Mexico Independent's live feed, and careful moderation of their own chat box (the entirety of which can be found… Continue

I just finished Running Alone in Photographs by Robert Mirabal and it is AMAZING! Anyone who knows of Robert Mirabal, or anyone that is in love with New Mexico for that matter, will love this book. It is sweet, sad, full of characters you probably know, and has lots of Robert's poetry.

This is an exceedingly well-researched novel and one that is utterly convincing. In 1959, a young woman, Haruko, marries the Crown Prince of Japan. She is the first nonaristocratic woman to enter the mysterious, hermetic monarchy. Met with cruelty and suspicion by the Empress, Haruko is controlled at every turn, suffering a nervous breakdown after finally giving birth to a son. Thirty years later, now Empress… Continue
