Fiesta de Barelas

Sacred Heart Church in Barelas had its Fiesta last weekend on the site of the old church. They tore down the church decades ago due to structural problems - with a little reconfiguration and a consecration, the old school gym became the Sagrado Corazón we know today. (If you venture into the parish office, you will see a painting of the old church by a… Continue

The Livin' is Easy for Now

I've seen the Lead / Coal Redesign discussed on DCF before, but I thought I would take a minute and alert everyone to what will soon be happening..... The project to remodel (for lack of a better word) the Lead and Coal corridors will soon be underway. The project has been put out for bid, and best guesses for when construction will start is late August or early September. Expect lane closures, and maybe even detours, from Downtown Albuquerque to… Continue

selling my white mapex drumkit

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:

22x18 Kick

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

The Sunday Poem: Mitch Rayes' version of "Friendship"

Mitch Rayes 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

Recovery Cat 6.12.2010

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.

Lewis Carroll, The Hunting of the Snark, 74

Warehouse Fire on Broadway at I-25

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...

Per KOBtv:"Deputies say a one mile radius from 9111 Broadway Rd. SE is being evacuated due to smoke.Officials worry about two 500-gallon ammonia trucks near the fire...Broadway is currently closed… Continue

The Greening of David Ondrik's Art

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

Inspirational endless night...

Endless Night by JL

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

Odd interruptions

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… Continue

Late-Breaking Bad

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, or the Jamie Oliver's… Continue

March Fourth, June Seventh

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.…

Oh, Snap!

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

Consider me a convert

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

The battle for green

So, I'm officially in my sixth month of home ownership. My indoor decor progresses with every new Filmore poster, pulp art print, circus punk, or vinyl collectible I find.

But, my fiance and I have started… Continue

Yearning for the Source of the Image: The Films of Nina Fonoroff

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

The FREE PORCH and other HOT memories

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
