I'm coming home, baby!

So, I haven't been gone for long, but holy crap, I am so excited to be coming back to Albuquerque for ten days. (Yes, yes, I moved. Personal reasons, blah blah blah. I've spent the last 12 years trying to live in Abq and periodically getting booted out of the city for one reason or another.)



But whatever, hell yeah, I can't wait to see the Rio Grande, eat some kick ass food, visit with friends, (go to my best girlfriend's engagement party!) and walk around downtown, Nob Hill, the… Continue

To kill a mulberry... and dump its remains

Right outside my bedroom window stands an enormous mulberry tree. In the spring a strong gust of wind will literally cloud the air with its pollen- dust devils of unstoppable sneezes, mere feet from my pillow. This summer we planted 3 replacement trees. Now, the fun begins: taking down the old tree, bit by bit- making room for the new trees to grow in place.



These freshly cut branches and non-mulchy yard detritus accumulate much faster than… Continue

Green Event Planning: considerations

As a budding green event planner, I've benefitted from attending / speaking with current green event planners that have paved the way. Some events addressed every element down to the types of soy based inks they used when printing. Other events didn't even consider putting out a recycling bin for guests. The following list outlines considerations when throwing an event that is 'green'. Please add comments / ideas so collectively we can make a robust… Continue

Share the Joy With the African Children's Choir



The African Children’s Choir has been traveling around the world and performing since 1984. They have been featured on American Idol, sung on stage with Sir Paul McCartney at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London, and played venues in every major American city. The group performances are famously poignant and striking whether experienced in New York City or small town Idaho. And now they are coming to Albuquerque to give us the chance to see something extra special while…

Introducing Tim O'Leary





OK, so he is just a dog and a rescue dog on top of that, which is kinda the point here. One of my wonderful companions of many years finally passed on last month. Paca, (yep, she was a rescue dog too and carried the acronym for People's Anti-Cruelty Association as her name), had been a great friend for about 15 years. When she passed on last month my other dog, Daisy, became increasingly lonely and subdued. I think I did too. It was… Continue

Hedwig and The Angry Inch - LIVE!

Hey everyone,



UPDATE: The paid preview on 11/19 is SOLD OUT. Sorry. Come see us this week, or over the run!



I will be drumming in a stage production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" beginning Thursday the 20th @ The Vortex. My band, Vertigo Venus, will be the Angry Inch. If you've seen the film, you'll love getting to hear this music live - this show is hilarious, rocking, and really fun. We're going for a whole month, and we've been working our asses off to make this thing… Continue

Lieberman

One of the best and most surprising effects of the election of Barack Obama has been an igniting in me to remain active in local and national politics. There is no excuse for apathy and passivity at this point. I will no longer sit idly by while a government who is accountable to its citizenry acts in opposition to the will of the people. I will learn/teach myself, with brute force if necessary, how to be a truly participatory citizen in a participatory democracy. I'm thankful that we have the… Continue

Boycotting Cinemark/Century and Blake's Lotaburger for support of Prop8

The Cinemark CEO gave approx $10K to support the passage of Prop8. Cinemark owns nearly all the theaters in Albuquerque. I don't care. Until the company recognizes what they have done and corrects it, I will not patronize their theaters. Here is the statement I sent them on their form for contact.





Based on the news that the CEO of Cinemark has donated approximately $10,000 to support the passage of the discriminatory… Continue

Tribune??? Alive???

Not to say that the patient has a pulse, but E&P bloggers Fitz & Jen report that Friends of the Albuquerque Tribune are at work:

"It wants to make a real online news site complimented by the free-distribution paper, which they hope to make a bi-monthly," Fitz & Jen write. "In true NPR-ish fashion, they’ve started a…

Thank You

Last week, New Mexicans across the district from Belen to Bernalillo, from Estancia to the East Mountains, and, from the Northeast Heights to the South Valley rose up, went to the polls and cast their ballot to change Washington.



To those of you who supported me, I'm humbled by your support and on behalf of my family and my campaign staff, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you've done to make this victory possible. This campaign was never about me -… Continue

Porcupines and our amazing universe.

Today is a very beautiful day here in the Duke City. The sun is shining and there is little to no wind ( for the time being). I came into the studio today and saw that another one of the artists here was here when I left last night and here again this morning. So I went to ask her in jest if she stayed the night here. She said no but something really bizarre happened last night. I inquired and she said she was returning from getting coffee at about 3 am and she heard footsteps behind her. She… Continue

New Seal CD

I have been a fan of Seal's for quite some time. He released a new CD yesterday titled "Soul" and I have been listening to the MP3 of if all morning. He released the single "A Change is Going to Come" about a month ago. It's a remake of a Sam Cooke song and it's wonderful.



If you like classic soul, be sure to check it out! (And even if you don't, check it out...Seal's voice makes these classics sound… Continue
