Hedwig and The Angry Inch - LIVE!

Hey everyone,

UPDATE: The paid preview on 11/19 is SOLD OUT. Sorry. Come see us this week, or over the run!

I will be drumming in a stage production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" beginning Thursday the 20th @ The Vortex. My band, Vertigo Venus, will be the Angry Inch. If you've seen the film, you'll love getting to hear this music live - this show is hilarious, rocking, and really fun. We're going for a whole month, and we've been working our asses off to make this thing… Continue

One of the best and most surprising effects of the election of Barack Obama has been an igniting in me to remain active in local and national politics. There is no excuse for apathy and passivity at this point. I will no longer sit idly by while a government who is accountable to its citizenry acts in opposition to the will of the people. I will learn/teach myself, with brute force if necessary, how to be a truly participatory citizen in a participatory democracy. I'm thankful that we have the… Continue

Boycotting Cinemark/Century and Blake's Lotaburger for support of Prop8

The Cinemark CEO gave approx $10K to support the passage of Prop8. Cinemark owns nearly all the theaters in Albuquerque. I don't care. Until the company recognizes what they have done and corrects it, I will not patronize their theaters. Here is the statement I sent them on their form for contact.

Based on the news that the CEO of Cinemark has donated approximately $10,000 to support the passage of the discriminatory… Continue

Tribune??? Alive???

Not to say that the patient has a pulse, but E&P bloggers Fitz & Jen report that Friends of the Albuquerque Tribune are at work:

"It wants to make a real online news site complimented by the free-distribution paper, which they hope to make a bi-monthly," Fitz & Jen write. "In true NPR-ish fashion, they’ve started a…

Thank You

Last week, New Mexicans across the district from Belen to Bernalillo, from Estancia to the East Mountains, and, from the Northeast Heights to the South Valley rose up, went to the polls and cast their ballot to change Washington.

To those of you who supported me, I'm humbled by your support and on behalf of my family and my campaign staff, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you've done to make this victory possible. This campaign was never about me -… Continue

Porcupines and our amazing universe.

Today is a very beautiful day here in the Duke City. The sun is shining and there is little to no wind ( for the time being). I came into the studio today and saw that another one of the artists here was here when I left last night and here again this morning. So I went to ask her in jest if she stayed the night here. She said no but something really bizarre happened last night. I inquired and she said she was returning from getting coffee at about 3 am and she heard footsteps behind her. She… Continue

New Seal CD

I have been a fan of Seal's for quite some time. He released a new CD yesterday titled "Soul" and I have been listening to the MP3 of if all morning. He released the single "A Change is Going to Come" about a month ago. It's a remake of a Sam Cooke song and it's wonderful.

If you like classic soul, be sure to check it out! (And even if you don't, check it out...Seal's voice makes these classics sound… Continue

Flickr Visit to the State Penn

The Glints and Shadows through Grime

Today I joined a Flickr photography group to a visit to the Santa Fe sate penitentiary. We met in Santa Fe and were allowed about two hours to take photographs inside the old abandoned prison.

All is Dusky, Arrayed with Shimmering Decay

The New Mexico Penitentiary Riot, which took place on February 2 and February 3, 1980 was one… Continue

Veteran's Division Soccer

I got a letter from the Albuquerque Soccer League Veteran's Division today. Here is what it said (exactly). Spreading the word and thinking about showing up on the 22nd.

Doctor said to get more exercise? Haven't played soccer in years and want to come back? Better yet, want to come back and not played against twenty-year olds?

Your ship has come in. Join us for the Albuquerque Soccer League Veteran's Division. We…

Who Is Downtown Albuquerque's Most Important Architect? Henry Trost! Henry Trost?

NOB HILL--In a city that prizes its a city where even common folk like us can rattle off the names of Predock, Prince, Whittlesey, and John Gaw such a place where buildings are talked about, few know the name of Henry C. Trost. Yet Trost has done more to shape the skyline of downtown Albuquerque than anybody else. He is responsible for designing no less than six of Central Avenue's signature structures plus a nearby house.… Continue

Feeling grateful in the duke city

The past two weeks have been pretty wild here at casa wombat. We had Halloween, Dia de los muertos, the elections, birth, death and the flu. I know that ABQ is dusty and sprawly and lacking in some things, but lately I have ben glad to be here.

Outdoor space

On Friday I was taking pictures for work and ended up at the Open Space Visitor Center. The fields were full of… Continue

SunCal's Deep Water

SunCal is making some brazen claims to brackish water in mile-deep wells beneath the old Atrisco Land Grant - among the brazen claims by others, including Atrisco Oil and Gas, Commonwealth Utilities and Sandoval County.

The uncharacteristically reality-based skepticism of the Albuquerque Journal was picked up by istockanalyst blog. The Journal notes the policy vacuum and suggested the State… Continue

AUTHORS NOTE: This is a repost from last Veteran's Day, 11.11.07

Veterans Day is well noted, but perhaps not well remembered. The American Legion and the VFW hold ceremonies. As a Boy Scout, the Author attended a couple of these as a kid.

And there are the obligatory “Thank the Veterans” editorials and op-ed pieces. For public sector employees, it is often a paid holiday. But, in the… Continue
