Public Image Albuquerque, Pre-Simpsons





I ran across a tidy little clip reel of Bugs Bunny's "Albuquerque" quotes. I have no idea if it's comprehensive, nor when the individual scenes date from, but I began to wonder if this could have been the first popular culture reference point for the Duke City. I mean, since the cartoon began in the 40's and seemingly these likely date from the 60's or 70's at the latest, what could have come… Continue

Another Good Use of Ink During Poetry Month

I was still slathering a very itchy new tattoo on my forearm with lotion--a tattoo I'd been lucky enough to get from Serena Lander in Suzanne Sbarge's art studio--when I lucked onto The Tattooed Poets Project. I’d been googling Brendan Constantine, visiting writer at Loyola Marymount University, who will be coming to… Continue

Larry Goodell's FB Photos of Local Poets & Artists

This is National Poetry Month. The Alibi did a nice piece on it, highlighting four local poets. I might mention that 3 of the 4 have appeared here on The Sunday Poem (Richard Oyama, Greta Pullen, and Adam Rubenstein) as well as Alibi Arts/Lit Editor Erin Adair-Hodges who authored the piece. The Alibi's web page also features a… Continue

Zombie Doughnuts

We don't usually do the Sunday morning doughnut thing, but I was interested in checking this place out. It is located in the South Valley Economic Development Center and it is called

the the Zombie Cafe so how could I resist.

The Sunday Poem: Gary Brower... Blackdom, New Mexico

Ever wonder how we in New Mexico turned out to be so different from our neighbors Texas and Arizona? For one thing, we turned back the forces of slavery at Glorieta. And check out this tribute to poet Maisha Baton, which delves into post-civil war history in eastern New Mexico.… Continue

Biking in the Bosque and Panza Llena

On Friday I had a brilliant idea that my husband and I should go bike riding the next morning with some family. It had been raining on Friday so I wasn't sure if it was going to pan out but it sounded like so much fun. Saturday morning came and it was still sprinkling so we decided to wait until about 10:30 to head out. By that time it was perfect, still overcast but the rain had stopped and the clouds were covering the sun keeping it nice and cool. We decided to hit the… Continue

Lilac, Wisteria, and Other Smells







So the lilacs and wisteria opened this past week. In Fringecrest, anyway. You can see a couple drapey plumes of blue wisteria flowerspike, kinda blurry to the right and behind my younger daughter in the pic above. And allhecksyeah do they smell good! Mostly the lilacs. I mean, I guess wisteria has a nice scent, but it's a manscent, or something-- kind of brutish and olfactorily bold, a Cabernet to the lilac's… Continue

Fuzz Bow Style

In summer of 1948 a man gathered some friends, a carpenter, and some blueprints. In the following months he erected a beautiful home in the SE Heights of Albuquerque. Years went by, deeds transferred, and finally in late 2006 my wife and I bought his house. It was in bad shape, but we had the time and energy to bring it back to life- and we did, one project after another, restoring its original charm while adding a few conveniences. This December the… Continue
