Hi all, I'm selling my white Mapex drumkit, it's a 5piece:
- Never knew what model this was, just an average kit. I'm guessing poplar or birch on the wood, unsure on number of plies. Sizes are:
12x10 Rack tom
13x10 rack tom
16x17 floor tom
Snare is a Ludwig steel snare, 14x6 - the kind that most of us used in high school marching, comes with a hardshell case:
Toms are stem mount on the Kick… Continue

is always at work for poets behind the scenes. He's often referred to as the "Godfather of the Albuquerque Poetry Scene" because he produced four poetry festivals in the '90s and created Flaming Tongues and is infinitely supportive of other poets. (Here, in the banner above, and photo by Mark Weber below, he's adjusting sound at the memorial for the recently passed… Continue

They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
They pursued it with forks and hope;
They threatened its life with a railway-share;
They charmed it with smiles and soap.

Massive warehouse fire in the South Valley
Wondering about the smokage south of town today (6/11/2010) --Good news: it is not the Bosque burning but rather the unoccupied Karler Meat Packaging Facility. I took these pictures from I-25...

Albuquerque artist David Ondrik's new photographic work is "green." Which makes me think immediately of Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) who coined the term viriditas - the greening power of God. Whatever your spiritual disposition, it's hard to disagree with the mystic when she declares, “There is a power that has been since all eternity, and that force and potentiality is green!” And this spirit is something that imbues the new photography of David… Continue

A peaceful time
The candles glow
I made the comment
Idea was perfect
I blabber the story
It points out the origin
Tiny breeze flowing
Tell me your story
Maybe it’s something
Maybe it’s nothing
Are spirits rising?
It never finishes
I will let it go
Tell me a new story
Show me your dreams
Your hand is in mine
My heart skips a beat

My taste in television programming is decidedly suspect. While I may give myself points for not having been sucked into such "reality" shows as Survivor, The Bachelor, nor Hell's Kitchen-- are the ones I do occasionally watch- Dog The Bounty Hunter, Supernanny

EXUBERANT! March Fourth had
to be good, and they delivered. I was so exhausted from a crazy Monday that I might have skipped the show, except that I had a commitment to write about it. After two minutes into the celebration that is March Fourth my yukky Monday disappeared into joy. Karlita and I marveled at the unique gypsy big band sound and the crazy sexiness of burlesque boys and girls on stilts.…

On the Friday afternoon that kicked off Memorial Day weekend, I was in an ambulance in downtown Albuquerque, staring at an IV bag and wondering how long it would take for morphine to enter my bloodstream. Since I had spent most of the early part of that afternoon writing up multiple choice quizzes for a online course I’m teaching this summer, my mind moved like this:
A. Not fast enough.
B. Not long at all.
C. Time is… Continue

I've been meaning to do this for a long time, but I finally went to the Church of Beethoven
Needless to say, I loved it. The one-hour concert (complete with a poetry break and two minutes of silence) provided everything I've always wanted from church (time to feel contemplative, feeling like part of a community, a break from the everyday and a visit with the sublime) without any of the other things that freak me out… Continue

What is it about Nina Fonoroff’s short experimental films that are so profoundly compelling and moving for me? In part it’s that she takes the daily materials of her stock-in-trade—found footage, audio recordings, words on the page—and restores to them the silvery luminosity and reawakened wonder that I once felt in my early filmic experiences: the silent movies of Jean Vigo, F.W. Murnau and Fritz Lang, the Russians Eisenstein, Pudovkin and… Continue

HOT Days like today's with a considerable dry heat
take me back to our first years in New Mexico where we were such novice 'renters', we did not realize a swamp cooler was supposed to have water in it...Thanks Mr. Landlord. 23 years ago this weekend on a cool and beautiful day (followed by thunderstorms the next day) my wife, Debra Landau, and I were married atop our roof on Princeton S.E. in an eclectic ceremony performed by the head tribal Medicine Woman of Isleta Pueblo (pre-Casino… Continue

Caution! This spring five of New York's biggest bump 'n' grind stars have highway fever! The super-star team of Anita Cookie, Clams Casino, Darlinda Just Darlinda, GiGi LaFemme and Minnie Tonka are hitting the road for DANGEROUS CURVES AHEAD: BURLESQUE ON THE GO-GO! With a squeal of tires and a cloud of glitter, they're leaving behind the Big Apple with the top down and their tassels twirling! And they're taking Albuquerque by storm for just one night along with many of New Mexico’s top… Continue

It's also very difficult to blame others when we're using I-Statements. They force us to take responsibility for what we're thinking and feeling, which protects others from our blame, guilt and judgment.

Today is the second anniversary of my arrival in my new home town, Albuquerque!
And I've never looked back (except to curse the heat in Phoenix).
I'm so very grateful for all the wonderful things that have happened here - great new friends, awesome live music, cultivating my massage practice, all the learning and culture that has flowed to me.
The southwest is where I plan to lay my bones down.
Very grateful I took the chance to come here.
