Albuquerque's nearby village is presenting the first in a series of seminars about the arts — from painting to music to growing to the healing arts.
This first event is called “Purchasing Original, Affordable Art" and they want to invite some Duke City Fixers. This event is by invitation only, and Fixers are invited.
The seminar will cover many aspects of art buying, from casual purchasing to serious… Continue

No one wants anyone to GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL without passing GO
but occasionally there is someone going there who might just be deserving of some 'downtime' or shall we say a retreat
Albuquerque developer and man-in-the-news, Jason Daskalos, will go to jail for TWO DAYS
. 13 of his vehicles will get the boot
for a time.
Here's a link to the full KOB News 4… Continue

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.

“Any cultural act performed or done by a member of a nationalized minority group member is by definition a political act. In short, culture is politics.”

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

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

“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

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

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

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

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:… Continue

Some days I just shouldn't get out of bed. Not because I'm running a temperature, not because I have a runny nose, but because some days I don't find myself to be the best at being around people. You can call it PMS. I'm comfortable enough with myself to acknowledge that I have those days. But today is not that.
I have an office plant. I've had him for a few years. I saved him from being tossed aside after a big fundraising event when… Continue

Steph and Chloe hit the Bullshead dog park today after dropping me off at work. We take Chloe there often because of the proximity to work. The park is split into two sections, a big dog area and a small dog area. Until today Chloe has been able to enjoy the benefits of being neither a big or a small dog. She's a basset hound/retriever mix weighing in at 35 pounds. She's stout and strong and while she shares some characteristics of the… Continue

A packed house @ 117 Gold
Kudos to Duke City Fix, 100 Gold, Sadies, Mayor Martin Chavez, Greg Payne and Abq. Ride
for the beautiful job on the POETRY ON THE BUS reception; for the gorageous book of the selected poems; and for the LITERARY ARTS on the WALL artshow (Yes, poems are art pieces!) at 117 Gold. We know the literary art pieces
will look just as snappy on the inside of the busses too.

Big love to all the winners of this year's Poetry on the Bus
program! I just returned minutes ago from the opening reception to share some snapshots with you.
The downtown venue was packed and the scene was groovin'. Apparently poetry events are a prime place to meet people too as I connected with a foxy engineer from Intel who was there to support Jordan (shown… Continue
