How is it that a small bookstore in Albuquerque's North Valley, BOOKWORKS is hosting world-famous author of what many are calling (including me) the best book on the infamous "Vietnam Conflict" ever?

Well sir, it just happens that the author's son is getting married this week in Albuquerque!

The White Sands Full Moon Bike Ride

NOB HILL--Looking for a little adventure? This is one of the best short bike rides in New Mexico. It would have to be, or we wouldn't have driven all the way to Alamogordo just to do it. Actually, it is more than just a 16 mile bike ride. It is adventure itself calling.

To be a great ride for both MaryAnn and me it has to look like this:

• less than 20 miles

• little or no traffic

• fairly flat… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Jessica Lopez and Christian Drake... Frida & Diego

A poem written by two people is pretty unusual, and here Lopez and Drake tackle one of the most complicated and passionate relationships that ever existed: that of Frida Kahloe and Diego Rivera. What an incredibly rich piece! Perhaps the only thing better than reading it would be watching them perform it...so a video of them doing just that follows. Wow.

Christian Drake is a six-time National Poetry Slam team member, including the… Continue

Recovery Cat 10.23.2010

Protesting that your insinuations of attempted unfairness on my part are unjust; and with the hope that you did not very considerately make them, I proceed to reply. To your statement that 'It has been suggested recently that an arrangement had been made to bring out a third candidate for the U.S. Senate who, with yourself, should canvass the state in opposition to me &c.' I can only say that such suggestion must have been made by yourself; for… Continue

Fall In The Duke City

I love fall in Burque. It is the time of year when you leave in the morning wearing a jacket and head back home without it. I always associate fall in Burque with Balloon Fiesta and the intoxicating smell of green chile roasting. There are so many more things to do in the Duke City this time of year. I thought it would be cool to ask our regular writers and moderators what they… Continue

Gay Community Forum

Recently I posted a blog about gay hate crimes and bullying that resulted in some lively comments. That was very good.

Now the City and UNM is stepping up to the plate. Today KRKE News featured an article on a gay community forum, the link is below. It was good of them to announce that UNM has a support system in place but beyond that there are others like New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) and their under 21 group, Equality NM, and other events that can be found through Common… Continue

Pornotopia is censored again?! Really? Seriously?

ABQ Poets Against War: A Beginning

I asked Elaine and Demetria how all this started. I received the following explanation today.

--The DitchRider

It began innocently enough. Three of us sat at the old oak table over a simple meal of pasta with homemade pesto. We had come together to relax on a Friday evening and enjoy some good conversation. At the table were Demetria and Elaine, two poets and Daniel, an Environmental Sociologist. Before long our conversation took an unexpected… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Stewart S. Warren... Flutter of Communication

Leaves are about to fall. This is a poem you really need to read before they do...because, as he says, "Leaves are the words of trees / whose chosen work is remembering."

Stewart S. Warren, writer and performance poet, was born 1950 into the affluent southern society of Tulsa, Oklahoma where, Stewart says, he was raised by slaves and all night gas station attendants.… Continue
