Dear Martin Heinrich,
I am a Democrat, and voted for you two weeks ago. Now, if you are still around on Duke City Fix, I would really like to hear your stance on the auto bailout.
I'll give my opinion here. I just think its crazy that lawmakers are saying these environmentally unfriendly and irresponsibly managed sinking ships need to be saved. I think this is government intervention that is misdirected. Instead, government support should go towards helping the potentially… Continue

Last night was not the easiest night. We had to do a performance of the play for the Vortex’s board members, and I have some kind of head cold from hell eating my brain, and I literally wore a gasmask for much of the show, trying to make sure other people didn’t get sick. There are no understudies or stand-ins for this production - if one of us is out, the whole thing goes down. This meant that I played my drums feeling like I was stuck in Jello the whole time - I still managed to stay on all… Continue

A poem for peace
I try to imagine a world
a world of peace
sometimes it seems so far
the world it speaks
then in a flashing moment
something glorious screams
in a world of peace
Pass it on if you like

I work at Central New Mexico Community College
and we have this really cool Culinary Arts Program.
At a meeting last week I was yapping on about stuffing, and then cooking, my turkey. Joyce Woodard, one of the Professional Cooking Instructors at CNM looked at me askance and said "that's totally not safe Alexis." It got me thinking, maybe its a… Continue

Yesterday I had a break in my hectic schedule, and was able to slip in to a FREE session with Sophie Martin (of Duke City Fix) on Guerrilla Marketing.
This workshop was at the Hyatt downtown (where else?) and sponsored by the Downtown Action Team.
I was so inspired, and so very grateful, to get reconnected with some of the Guerrilla Marketing strategies that WORK, and learn more.
I discovered the Guerrilla Marketing books many many years ago, and they have… Continue

I've had a lot of success (and made a lot of friendships) with bartering services and items over the years.
Being new to Albuquerque, and re-starting my therapeutic massage practice here, I'm curious - is there a DCF community for the purpose of connecting to trade? If not, is there enough interest in creating one?
This could be an awesome, active, vibrant thing to do.
I have done some casual, creative bartering since I've been here, and I've also joined a… Continue

Melt With You
I'm rocking out to the Eighties videos on VH1 Classic.
This is a great way for me to begin my morning.
I am totally and truly an 80s girl - I graduated high school at 16 in 1980 - and although I felt like I was robbed of the 60s - I did thoroughly enjoy live music in the 80s.
I saw U2 on their first US tour.
I saw the Pretenders on their first US tour.
I saw Big Country on their first US tour.
I saw the first US tour of the… Continue

Vertigo Venus has been hard at work on the Production of Hedwig, we are on our 10th or so straight day of rehearsal, and we are very nearly perfect. We have our wardrobes worked out, the music is very, very tight, and Brian Lucero (who is playing Hedwig) has locked down his character very well. Our very own Krissy is kicking ass as Yitzahk, and we are happy to say that we are almost at opening night. Tonight's rehearsal was a total dress/tech, and we feel pretty good about everything, save for… Continue

What a wild unexpected ride it's been! After five years as a local blogger including four at the helm of Duke City Fix, I'm retiring from blogging and officially turning over management of this site to Sophie Martin who's been running things on a day-to-day level for several months now... and swimmingly so.
UPDATE 3/20/2011: Sophie has moved onto other… Continue

I meant to post this weeks ago, but finally got around to it. New Mexico has some really great hiking trails, and I have been covering a lot of ground this fall. I hike occasionally with the Albuquerque Hiking and Outdoor Meetup
. They have a lot of members and do a lot of hikes, especially in the Sandias, but also to the neighboring Jemez, Sangre de Cristo and sometimes even to Wheeler Peak or Sierra… Continue

Thanks to Ron Da Bomb for posting the video about this store. I found it on the north side of Menaul (6611 Menaul NE next to AP-T camera) just west of Louisiana.
In we went and there's most of a wall and several racks and shelves dedicated to Duke clothing.…

Here's the 66 yesterday on 4th and Montano
This was today at the Babu store on Yale and Lead. (This pic was very rushed. the light turned and folks were honking at me. I thought I was just a popular guy with a camera until I saw many middle fingers pointed at me).…

Fear not, Burquenos, if you support gay marriage you don't have to stop eating Frontier rolls.
It all started with Jim Baca writing that the owners of Frontier
and Golden Pride were on the list of Prop 8 donors. (He later retracted the comments, see below)
Duke City Fix freaked out
that the gay marriage ban opposers at… Continue

Hey there Albuquerque Familia-
After about five years of doing community organizing work in Albuquerque New Mexico, I am officially taking a much needed break. Mostly I worked with the League of Pissed off Voters, which morphed into the League of Young Voters. In 2008 I helped to grow a new Organization called New Mexico Youth Organized. I learned a lot this year. Mostly I learned about myself.
My teachers along the way included my friends, family, colleagues and the… Continue

For 15 years I have watched as US automakers produced larger, heavier, more dangerous, less fuel efficient cars and trucks (trucks and more trucks) for the grossly over indebted American buyer. Detroit has done everything in its power to forget the lessons of the 1970's oil crisis or have ANY sense of environmental responsibility. They were making money hand-over-fist on Pickup Trucks and SUV's for people who didn't need them and couldn't afford them. Now, they are all on the verge of… Continue
