Neil Young's "Albuquerque"

With the change in seasons, I found myself listening once again to this old Neil Young tune and contemplating the crossroad's nature of our fair burg. It is fun to travel beyond 'burque and always good to return again with new perspectives. Too bad Neil didn't ask the red or green question back in the day; apparently fried eggs and country ham were more to his liking.

Well, they say that Santa Fe

Aerobics are DEAD!

Although this goes against what most of the idiot trainers out there promote. It will help you get out of the gym faster while taking more fat off.

Question: I have a question that may or may not pertain to diet. I started working out again at a local gym in January I try and go 2 to 3 times a week and spend 45 minutes doing cardio and an hour doing the workout room but by the time I'm done I'm so tired and sleepy I have to fight sleep driving home. Is there something… Continue

This week brings us FrenchieStiles as the Albuquerque Etsy seller to check out. She describes her work as:

'Lingerie line for the burlesque and coquettish or just plain cute and sexy.'

Burlesque? Coquettish? We love those things! A very cute shop-although at first I did wonder if I might have stumbled upon… Continue

McCain and Palin in Duke City

While driving on I-40 near Holbrook, heard on the 770 AM yesterday that McCain is going to have a rally in Albuquerque next Saturday. I was kinda curious to check what the fuss was about, but the remainder of my sanity intervened.

Pajarito Mesa, The Freeway

Today being that we celebrate labor day this weekend I decided to take the DR for a ride.DR visits Pajarito Mesa

My goal was to reach Pajarito Mesa, and ride the area most of the day. But to get to Pajarito and reach the dirt, I must leave the confines of the congested suburban city. I ride a dual sport bike so I don't have to trailer my bike, so yes I ride to my… Continue

As my way of ushering in September and a new job, I checked out Rocco Castellano's boot camp. I'd seen his column in Local iQ and read a few weeks ago that he had relocated to Albuquerque and would be conducting his boot camps here. I've been intending to check one out, but didn't make it until today.

Um, so, ouch? Between exercise such… Continue

7 Tips for Choosing a Personal Trainer

Fitness trainers are a dime a dozen. Everyone from would-be actors to wannabe bodybuilders can take a test and get a certification. Just because a trainer is certified doesn’t necessarily mean they are qualified. Here are tips to help you choose a qualified personal trainer to fit your needs.

1. Call at least three personal trainers that specialize in your fitness goals. (Ask friends and other wellness… Continue

For Ron: The Lapse of a Law-Abiding Citizen

I'm writing this blog for another DCFer who asked me to comment further on a comment I made to him. Since this is publicly posted and there's an off-chance that someone other than Ron may read this, I'd like to make the following statement: I did not write this to begin a discussion of the pros and cons of the Montano Bridge, so pleeeease don't go there. This is meant to be a humorous look at me looking at one of Albuquerque's landmarks and how I decided, perhaps erroneously, to invoke a piece… Continue

Beautiful Barelas

“Beautiful” is not a word often linked with Barelas. Ours is a close-knit community, held together by corazón y familia, but beauty doesn’t figure into most descriptions of Barelas. Speed through the main thoroughfares of our barrio and you’ll likely miss the beauty that lives in… Continue

Sausage Fest 2008

Sausage sausage sausage! We kicked off the Labor Day weekend around Martini World! with a small cookout. What began as fetching a sample of sausages from Joe S. Sausage was quickly dubbed "Sausage Fest 2008". My friends are meat eating animals of the most civilized kind. Most Fridays our close friends just end up here or there for a drink or two, maybe some dinner. This Friday we… Continue

august recap

Wow, so, there goes August.

What happened in August? Well lots.

First off, I went and saw the Gluey Brothers, one of my favorite bands of all time, At the launchpad on the 8th. As always, an amazing show by the band I grew up seeing. Showing up at the Lpad, I ran into Jim Goulden, AKA MC Tahina, whom I had played a ton of phone tag with for a long time, trying to meet up over the course of 8 months, but never being able to cross paths. I had informed Jim thru voice mails… Continue

Flying Without Wings

Silvia ready to ride

I have been thinking about motorcycles a lot lately and I came to the realization that this year I did not ride my Goldwing much. I know why, Silvia. She is on the other side of the border, many miles away and I have not spoken to her in months. Sometime I wonder what she is doing. I was thinking about a ride we did together to Jemez this time last… Continue

Femme-o-lition Derby 2008

Albuquerque has some of the most amazing and unusual entertainment in America. Each year a mostly local group of femme entertainers put on a burlesque, circus, music, etc. show called the Femme-o-lition Derby. It was ninety minutes of astonishing talent and girl girl loving. Matie Fricker and Molly Adler of Self Serve Toys provided running comedy relief as they worked the audience and introduced the acts:…

A First Timer's Account of the DNC

Going to a national political convention is unlike anything else. Everywhere one turns, there are stories ready to be and interesting characters to interview. In other words, to call it a carnival would be a gross understatement.

Third Congressional District candidate Ben Ray Lujan walked through the Big Tent. A TV station from Spain interviewed Ben Ray Lujan -- then turned around and interviewed… Continue

Is America Ready for a Pin Up President?

Sarah Palin is a woman, yet she sure as hell is not Hillary Clinton. Somehow McCain missed the distinction.

McCain managed to put the entire focus of his campaign on his health yesterday. At 72, and having battled cancer four times, there is a big chance that his VP pick will assume to the throne. McCain had only met Palin one time, around six months ago. She had been… Continue
