I was just watching The Weather Channel and they're going on and on and on about Tropical Storm Fay. Yes, tropical storms can be really bad news and sometimes they even turn into hurricanes, but here's my taste test for whether or not a hurricane is going to be bad beyond belief: I just look at the names of my children or pets and if it's not one of their names, then it's not going to be a blow-your-mind type of event. Okay, so I don't have children--only one child--and his name has already… Continue

I'm pretty happy with the progress of the websites I put up for my two babies...
1) my studio site: www.tripl3tonestudios.com
2) my venue site : www.the-agency.org
These two site use a template my friend kicked down which makes editing a breeze. I use apple and adobe software to treat images, and then put the pages together with Dreamweaver and then upload with CyberDuck to my host servers. All in all, I can update the front page in about 3… Continue

Animal Control found Rocky bleeding and shivering – chained in a filthy yard, without shelter, food, or water. The “owner” was arrested and (deservedly) charged with animal cruelty. Due to the charge, Rocky was taken into protective custody. Without the charge, Rocky would have been immediately euthanized. He was literally dying of neglect. Rocky remained in protective custody for 3 months. He overcame serious respiratory and intestinal illnesses.… Continue

While huge numbers of Pit Bulls in this country are cherished family pets, many not so fortunate suffer the consequences of neglect, fighting rings, and a never ending bad rap. The ladies of Burque Babes n’ Bullies are standing up for the pit bulls by shining a new light on the loving and loyal breed. We are doing so by creating a calendar (to be released in November 2008), volunteering at Albuquerque’s Animal Care Centers, and raising money at local… Continue

A story I did not expect to come across in the NY Times - 'Two Georgians Say They Have Bigfoot’s Body
Yes folks. The day has come that you can pause and sigh with relief. America has caught Bigfoot. Maybe we should send the Bigfoot Hunters abroad to solve our problems. They could locate the mythical weapons of mass destruction!
Favorite quote from the article:

Singing for me equals Body Pleasure.
It takes me deeper into myself, and higher out of myself, at the same time.
Singing for me is communion.
And, by pretty much anyone's standards, I am not a good singer.
It had been the heartbreak of this lifetime - I want to be able to just belt out a line from a song - out of nowhere - and have it be at least listenable, recognizable.
It's the ironic paradox of the Universe that I get so much… Continue

The survey asks mothers a variety of questions about their satisfaction with their maternity care providers and birth setting, and includes their feedback in the results, allowing other women to benefit from their experiences.

With artists like Katy Perry and Charlotte Sometimes busting through the music scene with outrageous styles and controversial lyrics, they're definitely turning some heads - good and bad.
When you hear Katy Perry's name, the automatic response is the "oh that's the 'I Kissed A Girl' chick." Katy has been on the scene much longer. Her first album was released in 2001 under the name Katy Hudson, and years later, her song "Simple" appeared on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 soundtrack… Continue

These were found in the downtownish area next to our home built in 1910 by a train conductor named John White. The… Continue

According to an article in the AbqJournal
today, the screw may have turned on infamous real estate magnate, I was only talking on my cell phone when I ran over a few white lines and that APD guy had been following me for blocks as...
Jason Daskalos. He got charged a 10.00 fine for crossing the lines and possibly his probation will be lifted as well...Isn't talking on your cell phone while driving also illegal?

After many many arguments with my buddy concerning history's greatest singer/songwriter Bob Dylan, we both accept his undeniable greatness and magnitude. Having said that we both discussed albums that were mind blowing and listed tracks off blonde on blonde, then highway 61 revisited. Boom! it happened minutes roll by filled with sentences "How in the hell can you argue this"? and "Dude its a freaking masterpiece!" Then we began to mention the current geniuses of our time Radiohead, same… Continue

It's (been) in the mail and today it came to me...My special envelope
from the City of Albuquerque/ABQ RIDE...Am I a LOSER ? Am I a WEINER?...Is this rejection letter number 47,000 or is my path golden to ride the bus routes with my words
on their inner fuselages?
I open the envelope (hey, nice specially bright YELLOW return-addie label!)
with inhaled and bated breath...
And the answer to all my prayers is...

After reading yesterday's Albuquerque Journal
,I'm done. I'm done with local politics in Albuquerque. Instead of following the Club 7 issue, the newspaper decided to focus on Mayor Chavez. The mayor seized on the opportunity to criticize the bar--in his typical tough guy, law and order manner. It was almost the perfect story as he gears up for his re-election campaign. It seems like this controversy could not have been better crafted for him.
Where was the commentary from the… Continue

Eight. Apparently at Nob Hill Bar and Grill
last night if you weren't paying attention, a 20% gratuity was added to your tab (if you bought a dinner).
First I asked some of my fellow DCFers. Greg didn't recall if it had been added but mentioned that he had added a generous tip himself. Ester checked her bill and did not see an added gratuity and a third guy (whose name I don't recall, sorry dude) had… Continue
