Albuquerque in HD on ESPN

NM Bowl



New Mexico Bowl '09


Gorgeous Day here for the not-so-big opening "Bowl Game" right here in Albuquerque (ESPN). Pity east coasters getting walloped with snowage on Super Shopper Saturday...Wonder how the President moves around when the rest of DC is snowed in with BLIZZARD conditions? Time to hook Bo up to the dogsled. Can't picture the Obama Family on cross country… Continue

Everyone's a Lobo - even if you don't have the mtn. network

In light of the Lobos starting off their season undefeated - I'm reminded why I don't like television. Since August 27, 2008 - UNM Lobo games have been broadcast on channel 616 on DIRECTV CHOICE or with a subscription to DIRECTV's Sportspack.



I'm a fan...grew up watching the Lobos on channel 13...listening to games on 770 KKOB...wishing I could go to Coop Camp - Michael Cooper was my first favorite NBA player as a kid. Anyone from Burque knows what Lobo basketball means to the city.… Continue

Original Stevie Ray Vaughan (Vaughn) autograph for sale

I just listed one of two original autographs I have from Stevie Ray Vaughan on eBay - hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since he died.



Parting with this cool Antone's poster that has all the Fabulous Thunderbirds signatures, and all of SRV's band on it is bittersweet - I've had it for a long time. However it is time to turn it loose and pass it on to another collector.



I am always going to keep the SRV/Double Trouble signed piece that I got backstage at the Jeff… Continue

Twas The Night Before Code 6 Polystyrene

Too many people are currently enmeshed in that red-n-green grab of obligatory gift giving, which I usually avoid by being mildly antisocial and retreating to the mountains. Yet now I want jewelry & want to give it...I want to put my oven on 315 degrees and tell the whole world to “Bake This!!!”



That I covet anything is the fault of my best friend Kris Mills. Blame her. She has combined the veritably Cro-Magnon tradition of the necklace… Continue

Elijo no al cariño de la nieve. Gracias.

I must confess I like snow Albuquerque-style. Which is to say



"Hey, did you see the snow?"

"No, I was in the bathroom."



If I have to have snow, that's the kind of snow I prefer. As in not much and not for long. Yes, it's lovely up there on the mountain, and it's even pretty to look at in the city so long as I'm indoors looking out at it. Walking in it, traveling in it, not so much. Annoying. Hellish, even. I prefer to set out across a parking lot relatively secure in… Continue

Route 66 Casino Review: Willie Nelson & Asleep at the Wheel

I last saw Willie live in 1976 at "The Pit"---my whole family had gone to see Waylon and Willie and the tour bus didn't get in until nearly midnight. I'm still in awe that mom and dad let us, ages ten to fourteen, stay out past two for the show. Willie's music is in heavy rotation on the soundtrack of my life.



Last night Karlita treated me to third row seats to see Willie---now age 76, at the Route 66… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Zach Kluckman... The Lion in G

She’s turning Debussy in G

into a sensual arrival of moments




What wonderful lines from The Lion in G! But Kluckman's poem is itself a "sensual arrival of moments." So much so that I have appended a 1940 recording of Debussy's Quartet in G Minor, as a sort of sensual dessert for this Sunday morning delight.



Zach Kluckman's anthology of New Mexican poets, Earthships: A New Mecca Poetry Collection, was a finalist… Continue

Krissy 14x18" oil on canvas board


This portrait just kicked my butt. I was sick while I was working on it so maybe that's some of it, but I kept losing my way and struggling to find my way back! I'm pleased with the outcome and am SO glad it's done!

Gifts All Our Lives

In this season of gift giving, I find myself feeling very lucky. I’ve lived much of my life working in and around the performing arts and a couple of days ago, it occurred to me why I so enjoy live performances. When someone performs for an audience, he or she is showing humanity at its best.



Working at Popejoy Hall the past decade and a half, I’ve watched audiences react to some very special performances. There’s a transformative magic in an exceptional live performance, an alchemy… Continue

Where “H” Stands For “Holy Crap”







Tim Berners-Lee Made Life Difficult For Me.



I am essentially an internet addict. That is to say that once I make the unfortunate decision to double click on either Internet Explorer or Firefox, very bad things happen. The best thing I saw this past Monday, discovered while surfing within 20 minutes of having arrived at the workplace:





Time immolation. Productivity… Continue

Remembering John Lennon

I know this is a pretty lame way to remember him, but to each their own. Technically, I believe that McCartney wrote this song, even though it is officially credited to Lennon/McCartney on… Continue

Rail Runner's Major Shortcoming: No Late Train North



Love the Rail Runner but frustrated at the lack of late train north (last departure from Downtown ABQ is 6:33 pm.). This severely limits downtown's ability to attract transit-traveling evening visitors (not to mention those working late). What a missed financial opportunity for downtown businesses. I would be very frustrated if I was the owner of a restaurant or club. BTW: Last train south from Santa Fe departs at 9:30… Continue

Yarnbombing in Albuquerque?

I recently started knitting. Today I was reading about the history of knitting online and learned about a type of graffiti called yarnbombing. Here's the wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarn_bombing . I love it 1) b/c the concept is fresh & quirky and 2) b/c it dovetails so nicely with street art which we've been discussing in the media literacy class I'm coteaching at MACCS. Anybody know if there's been any yarnbombing… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Kenneth P. Gurney... Fluid Shape of an Empty Womb

Many of us have lost track of the Oracle of Delphi these last 3000 years. That doesn't mean she's been quiet. Historically she was consulted before all major decisions, like going to war.



Kenneth P. Gurney lives in Albuquerque, NM. His work appears mostly on the web as he spends SASE and reading fee dollars on flowers for his lover. To learn more about Kenneth, visit… Continue

The Best Dolls Holiday Show Ever

For more than a decade the funniest, most outrageous holiday shows in Albuquerque have been presented by our own drag theater troupe, The Dolls. This year's show is hilarious and not to be missed. In Revenge of the Nutcracker George Bailey is desparately trying to keep his family's Old Town Albuquerque theater afloat, and all looks lost. Fortunately Hollywood angels are watching and hoping for an opportunity to earn their wings. Guest… Continue

Church of Beethoven does Brandenburg backwards



Last Sunday the Church of Beethoven had a packed house for the first in a series of performances of the six Brandenburg concertos. OK, so they didn’t actually play the notes in reverse order, but although it was the first in the series, they performed Concerto No. 6.



The next Brandenburg in the Church of Beethoven series will be No. 5 performed December 27, with the rest… Continue
