Hi! Ho! Come to the Fair! The Cows and the Sheep Will All Be There!

I never saw a Purple Cow. I hope I NEVER see one. But, I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see than be one!

Don't forget the Fair this year. In keeping with your visits with the animals, you may enjoy the bull you read in the following bit of "poetry": Cows With Guns

Fat and docile, big and dumb,

They look so stupid, they aren't much fun,

Cows aren't fun.

They eat to grow, grow to die,

Die to be et,… Continue

The Mayor of Albuquerque has more experience than Sarah Palin

You may not like the guy, but it's hard not to admit the fact that Albuquerque Mayor, Martin J. Chavez, would be better equipped for the job as VP than Sarah Palin. Here's the breakdown....…

Adventures of the Merch Girl: Hurricane Parties

So...being a New Mexican means the worst I've had to deal with natural disaster-wise is knowing that ditches are deadly (STAY AWAY!) and that dust gets caught in your throat sometimes when it's windy. When the news reports said Hurricane Ike was going to dump a bunch of rain and blow us all around a lot here in Austin, I didn't know what to do. So instead of buying bottled water and granola bars, my buddy Katie and I decided to have a hurricane party. We bought diet Coke and hummus and decided… Continue

Monticello, In Search for the Box

The Stream

We continued to penetrate the Monticello stream valley with LC4Dakar leading the way. Our goal was to reach the box. The water did not seem as deep as in the beginning, but the stream had plenty of water. We started to see more of the canyon and soon the canyon would get taller. We still had not reached the green gate.…

It's all fun and games until someone breaks a leg

So, Wednesday's show was probably the most surreal show I've played in a long time.

Why? Well, here you go;

Arrived at the Agency around 7:30 to set up sound, met with the guys from UGLYHEAD, got them situated, my bandmates started showing up. Diverje was first, good set. Then Uglyhead, also a pretty good set. Finally we set up for Vertigo Venus, and kicked off to a rousing start with "brand new face". Went thru a few more songs, and then, whilst in the middle of "She… Continue

As part of the Safe City project, an officer with Albuquerque Police Department was at our annual meeting last night. I am glad he came though I thought some of the things he said were disturbing. He said if there were people "shooting up in the laundrymat" to give him a call and he "would clean up and incarcerate them." He said if there were homeless people "loitering, getting drunk, and sleeping in your alley" he would similarly "clean them up." My eyes opened wide. It's not as if I am naive… Continue

Meet One of the 9 Newest Members of the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association Board of Directors!

I WON!!!!!!!!

Yes, I pulled it off. I am now one of the 9 new members on the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association Board of Directors! I want to extend a big thank you to my neighbor for having vested your confidence and trust in me.

I was first up to the podium. After everyone told me to get on the microphone--which was rather humbling--I got up there and made a self-deprecating joke about how I had the longest biography on the handout of eligible candidates. I got up there… Continue

Just to avoid confusion I thought I'd throw up a post about my name. My legal name is Stephen--and in professional environments I go by my legal name. In my personal life, I go by David--my Hebrew name and the name in which I feel most comfortable.

Morning Fix: & Gloom

from: Notes on the "<b>Street Life</b>" Series.

Even though all coins have two sides I will I hope keep the focus of this series as positive, for now. We will have to see the other side at some point to maintain balance in what is really a journalistic documentation of the local Arts and Party scene. I must as a story teller make you care about the character's first. You must feel what they feel to be able to and want to be sympathetic to them and their situation. To want to know what will happen next. The viewer will not focus on that which… Continue

The Skyscrapers that proclaimed the strength of Collective Man fell


in an all disaffirming flame.

Collapse upon collapse.

The call to an abject evil

transmitted relentless and unencrypted.

Cascades of scrolling names and passport… Continue
