Profile Yourself

I wrote this in my journal years ago. But Barelas Babe's blog enticed me to pull this out of the darkess and post.

(written on) Wednesday, July 27, 2005

My usual morning consists of getting dressed (in a rush) while watching Good Morning America (quite simply, I cannot stand the other morning shows). Today's top story was about the racial profiling that has been occurring in various parts of the world. Including, the arrest of five BROWN men in Times Square, NYC a… Continue

Brown in Burque

It is easier to be brown in Burque. One of the unexpected advantages to moving to Albuquerque (and to Barelas in particular) was the realization that having olive skin, dark hair and eyes that hinted at something other than European ancestry didn't matter so much here.

After a lifetime of "… Continue

No alcohol on Sundays?!

Since California is a blue state ran by do-gooder liberals who ban so-called "assault weapons", it's a little shocking to discover something where NM outdoes those dorks, but here it is: apparently Costco sells wine on Sundays starting at noon only (and that is considered an exception from the law banning Sunday sales period). Go go nanny state government, amaze the newcomers.

STOVE needs your help!

From our friends at Stove:

there will be a donation from Self Serve in the auction btw....

HI Everyone,

let me just come right out with it...

Stove is in need of your help. Last week, we were visited by the

Albuquerque Police (4 undercover cops) during our First Friday Artshow

and one of our owners spent the weekend in jail, where he had no fun.

The charges are not extremely serious, but the court costs and lawyer

fees exceed (by far)… Continue

Businesses are starting to sniff around The Place in Nob Hill


Back before The Place in Nob Hill (on Central between Wellesley and Tulane) was approved by the city, I went to one of the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association Meetings where the project was being discussed. I haven't been back to another meeting since then, one old lady was hissing at some of the speakers she disagreed with and people booed… Continue

Climbing the charts

My songs are now climbing the charts at Drop in and have a listen its a site of really good independent music. The songs that I have up are space travel in instrumental, and alien abduction in experimental. I have also mailed cds to radio stations in Germany, UK, and NY from requests the past couple of days. The sun keeps shining on Albuquerque.

Sunday Stroll in Nob Hill - this Sunday!!!

We'll I just got back from three intensive days of discussing MainStreet (not the over hyped nom de jour of the megamedia world) but the state's quarterly meeting based on the national program focused on the preservation and invigoration of core areas of towns and city across the state and country, and no jumping right into the final stages of preparations for Sunday's Nob Hill Stroll.

Lots was learned from the last event, a biggie being that I'm really looking forward to a Sunday of… Continue

NOTE: The Author's schtick is to use sarcasm and smarmy derision in his blog. Yesterday, he posted a couple of videos from McCain/Palin rallies highlighting the ignorance, bigotry and hate of some attendees.

The Author recently read that the Secret Service investigated a death threat yelled by an aspiring domestic terrorist… Continue

Duke City Solar - Part 1

This is a sketch of my roof. I have often felt that a flat roof contains a lot of wasted space.

I'm not precisely sure when, but at some point in June gas was around $4/gallon, PNM had recently raised its rates, and I started to wonder what I could do to isolate my family from steadily increasing energy expenses. I started reading up on solar electric systems, costs and benefits. After lengthy research I decided to install one of these… Continue

Call to Photographers: Chroma Gallery November show
