- State breaks through restraints, gorges itself on steaming profits oozing from Intersections of Zombie Pre$idents.
- Actually, the state demands the nutrient-rich zombie puss to cover debt costs on the $83 million metro courthouse -- the courthouse from which Manny Aragon and four others are accused of…

When Peter Pan
premiered in 1904, it was the first theater production which used technology to make people appear to fly. Other plays had created flying chariots or clouds on which people stood, but Peter Pan
was the first that used technology to make a human appear to fly on their own. Although many people think of Peter Pan
as a book, J. M. Barrie did not write the book Peter Pan and Wendy
until after the premiere of the play.

I’m a band parent. My daughter is in the Jazz Band at Taft Middle School. It's not a required class or an elective. It's a volunteer band and she's in it because she loves music. This means that I have to have her at school for band practice at 7:20 every morning before school starts- it’s a big commitment for her. But that commitment paid off during the ever wonderful and famous Taft Band Nacho Night and Silent Auction! Continue

started work on I-40 between Pennsylvania and San Mateo this week and my daily commute will be an ugly mess for a few months. I love the freeway and drive I-40 and I-25 everyday to work but it is always a tough decision for me to get off the freeway during traffic jams or construction delays. I'm sure if traffic gets too backed up I'll get off
and find another route but for now I'm going to stay… Continue

NM 550 & THE RIO GRANDE, BERNALILLO--Recent history in New Mexico encompasses the last thousand years. Actual documented human history here in the Land of Enchantment goes back another 9000, but the evidence is not so plentiful. Artifacts from 1000 years ago, on the other hand, are darn near everywhere. And certainly the most celebrated interpreter of the remains of the last thousand years is UNM professor David E. Stuart.… Continue

Each spring a beekeeper has to face the uncertainty of opening the hive(s) for the first time in the new year. It’s the ultimate evaluation of your skill as a beekeeper. Are your bees alive and well or are they sick, perhaps even dead? Is it dismal news or celebration?
For the first time in my brief beekeeping career, I had both to deal with this year. Two of my four hives were “dead-outs”, beek slang for dead hives. The other two… Continue

NOB HILL--Oh there have been memorable moments in the past: Albuquerque Journal headlines that really grab your eye because of their inherent ambiguity. Like the classic several years ago that read, “NASA To Probe Uranus.” Or the one during the last year of the Clinton administration that read, “Sex Offenders To Get Life Under Bill.” But yesterday! Yesterday there were two! Continue

Has Joe Monahan’s pet alligator been exposed? Parnelli Gonzales at Clearly New Mexico
says it's Bruce Donisthorpe, veteran Republican campaign consultant and lobbyist for big defense contractors. So it goes in the latest chapter of “Joe Monahan and the Attack of the Roundhouse Alligators.”
Monahan's cozy relationship with Santa Fe lobbyists is legend. His… Continue

After many scouting trips to ‘Burque, the spousal unit and I are ready to make the move. We like the people, the weather, the culture, the food, the overall “vibe”.
One thing seems missing, though. We’re big movie goers, and I can’t seem to find a good art house theater in town. I know about the Guild, and that UNM sometimes shows flicks. But is that all there is? What can we look forward to? Help!!

So, in lieu of imagining a new place/space in Albuquerque, I want to reflect on a place that was. The Golden West was, in my opinion, a pretty cool bar and live music venue. I remember seeing The Albuquerque Blues Connection play there a few years ago and having a really great night. More recently, I attended the Revolutions Theater Festival comedy night there, and was struck once again by the venue itself. Maybe not the best acoustics in town, but the old tin ceiling, western style bar,… Continue

A moment of silence for The Golden West Saloon

Inspired by Sophie's "7 things about Albuquerque that make my friends in other cities burn with jealousy" post, I'm submitting my own - foodie style.
Red and green chile
This is obvious, but it has to be said. Nowhere else in the country do they have chile quite like what we have here. When I first moved to Albuquerque, I thought there was no way I would ever get into the chile culture. I was so very, very wrong. We have a friend in Houston who wants my enchiladas… Continue
