The time was three weeks ago, and I went to see one of my favorite bands in the world, the Gluey Brothers, at the Launchpad. As always, the boys threw a great show, and to my surprise, before their final song, they called me onto the stage to sing "Donut Quota" (which I did a cover of) with them - which was perhaps one of the most awesome things that's ever happened to me; I grew up listening to the Gluey Brothers, so being on stage with them, and singing one of my favorite songs, was unlike… Continue
I am not sure exactly where to begin to blog my experience in burlesque. I think the best thing to do is just start writing. :) Let me introduce myself.
My name is Holly Rebelle and I have for the past 5 years run the local burlesque troupe, Burlesque Noir. I got the idea after seeing local classic burlesque girls shake their thing at a fetish show I was part of. I loved what they did but felt I wanted to do a modern burlesque troupe that used modern music and themes. I also wanted… Continue

Valentines Day has never really been a big Holiday for me. It's not that I'm not the romantic type, I am. Or that I don't have someone special in my life, I do. It's just that, well, I've never gone in for the crass commercialism of the event. I don't need no stinkin' holiday to tell me when it's okay to buy the man I love chocolate. Or in our case, new kitchen gadgets.
This Valentines Day however, will mark a very special anniversary for me. Six years ago this Valentines Day, I sat… Continue
I believe in follow up, and giving credit where credit is due. My initial blog about the drug trafficking in Barelas on Iron between 3rd and 4th avenues was met with many concerned and informative responses. I was directed to the the Barelas Neighborhood Assoc., given the contact numbers for various individuals with the influence and authority to take action, and received many comments regarding my personal safety. To all, I say thank you. Your concern is greatly appreciated. And although I'll… Continue
Time to change my picture again. I notice many people have had the same profile picture for as long as I've been around, which isn't that long really, but it seems they don't change. Quite a few DCFers change frequently. I guess I am falling into the latter category for a few reasons.
First, I feel lots of changes going on lately regarding me. After a few years of nearly complete inactivity because of a physical malady, I found myself… Continue
It’s sooooo hard to say goodbyeeeee to yesterdaaaaaaay…Well, it’s officially here. The last week of the Festival. Please dry your eyes. You still have two days to see absolutely fantastic theatre and if it’s my blogs going away you’re concerned about…Don’t be. You can’t get rid of me that easy. I want to take this moment to remind you that I will be here, weekly, letting you know all about life in the Tricklockverse. Let’s be brave,… Continue
I am less than 4 weeks from my "due date" and since last September I have been keeping a blog. This week I posted an update on my last minute remodel to our Master Bathroom. Nothing like a contractor to decide that it's a good idea to start a remodel in her 8th month of pregnancy. What can I say, maybe the chemicals got to my brain after all these years.
Anyway, this week on my blog I decided to post a slew of designer/contractor tips… Continue

So, I’ve been keeping you up to speed about the things that you CAN see, but I thought it might be nice, on this beautiful Wednesday, to talk about the things you can’t see. As in, the things you already missed. Now, you might be all “Why would you tease me like that? This is inhumane!” But, if you’re anything like me, you might need the big picture. And a lot of this stuff you can YouTube or Google and see clips, so it will be like watching a theatre… Continue
Just found this article and had to click to see if my beloved Albuquerque maybe, just maybe was on the list. Well, it was! Albuquerque is number FIVE on the list! I've always said that this is a great place to live, but again and again we are ending up on the top lists for being a great place to be during the recession. So, keep your heads up people, Albuquerque ROCKS!!
One of the great things about living in Albuquerque is that it's roughly in the center of the state- this makes road trips throughout the state relatively easy- many can even be completed in a day. Last weekend we took a trip down south.…
I think growing up I never knew what beauty really was. Looking back at childhood pictures, I realize that I didn’t really acknowledge the common notions of fashion, beauty, or mainstream iconology. In the past few months I have spent an ample amount of time looking at family photos, so this is something that has been on my mind a great deal. Those of you who know me best know that this was spawned by some extreme family drama culminating in the… Continue
