Pajarito Mesa, The Freeway

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

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 Barelas

“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

For Ron: The Lapse of a Law-Abiding Citizen

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 Fest 2008

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

august recap

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

Femme-o-lition Derby 2008

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:…

confessions of a bad houseplant waterer

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

Size Matters: Madness at the dog park, or Who Made You Queen of the Dog Park?

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

Winners of Poetry on the Bus

Jordan Martinez, with his poem for Poetry on the Bus

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

Fishing at Tingley

I've been fisihing at Tingley since last Spring.

Mostly Saturday mornings from sunrise until 10 AM or more, depends on the Sun.

My setup is sinkers on both, with two hooks. Hotdog, shrimp, and salmon eggs are the normal bait. This weekend I'll try some nasty blood dough I bought at Charlie's… Continue

Where does the New Mexico State Fairgrounds go from here?

With the horse racing and casino company relocating to Moriarity, the State and Expo NM has requested that we respond with ideas for how to fill the new hole in Expo NM's budget (~$2M). As a local I felt obligated to respond.

I proposed that a portion of the land be utilized as urban farm for the purpose of education, food security, and a place for the local community to gather. It's the perfect location for a demonstrative organic… Continue
