This morning as we here at Popejoy listened to the orchestra rehearsing the music from Monty Python’s Spamalot
we got to wondering… how the heck did Spamalot
get its name? And how did it become such a part of the Monty Python world?
You probably know that SPAM is a canned “shoulder pork and ham/spiced ham” pork product made by the Hormel Food Corporation. SPAM, like most other luncheon meats is precooked, but is also often pan-fried or heated… Continue

This past Friday was our Grand Opening art show and open studios event. Most of the photos posted were taken before and after the show. I had planned to take more during the show, but the place was so crowded and I was so busy talking with our guests that I ended up putting the camera away.…

And win! After faithful weekly attendance at Geeks Who Drink each Monday night, my fellow Know It All Posse teammate and I finally won the evening. Knowing a lot about Billy Joel songs, the history of various corporations and which business logos are which certainly helped. Our prize? These groovy deluxe cowboy wallets.
To make the night even sweeter, I won the super secret email question. Behold the power of bacon.

I’m sitting on a folding chair in a storefront office in the South Valley and I’m terrified.
There are about 35 chairs arranged in a semi-circle -- all facing the front. Most peoples' heads are tilted upwards; what is happening up front has their rapt attention.
We’re not in a storefront church, but an MVD dispensary.
My son is getting his driver’s license.
The item that has captured everyone’s… Continue

OK Harris died Sunday, June 8 at the VA Hospital. There will be a memorial at the Art is OK
gallery (next to Cost Plus on Menaul/Carlisle) in the next couple of weeks.
Pamela Michaelis sent out these words in her email notification. "OK was a man of heroic nature; there was never a bigger, more generous heart."

This week I'm grooving on the fabulous local art of JulianaColes, a mixed media artist and art teacher based in Albuquerque. Here is a snippet of self-description from her shop page
'Welcome fellow travelers to Me & Pete Productions coming to you live from the High Desert of New Mexico where Contemporary Expressionist Juliana Coles, assisted by her outlaw Feline, Pete, present… Continue

So...for about a year I blogged about environmental issues in New Mexico. There are a number of reasons why I started doing that, and a number of others why I stopped.
But really, none of those reasons are very important right now, when I'm trying to procrastinate work on a Sunday afternoon and when I have an Inbox full of emails from people who are writing to me about environmental issues in their communities or about events going on within their organizations.
(And I'm… Continue

I'm one of the few (it seems) that thinks the November Presidential election is going to be close. Very close. I've also heard many times that New Mexico will be an "important swing state". But I've always laughed at that idea. My November prediction was that the race would be decided by a bigger state with much more than New Mexico's five measly electoral votes, and probably long before we finished counting our ballots. But which one? Florida… Continue

May 7, 2008 through May 31, 2008. On my way out the door to the latest foothills expedition
I snap a quick picture of my new nemesis. It's a stump that used to hold up a 60 year old elm tree. Now it's an an eyesore, getting in the way of a landscaping project. I need to get it all the way out, and I'm going to use a myriad of inappropriate tools to do it.… Continue

In "Lonely are the Brave," a movie made from the book, "The Brave Cowboy", by Edward Abbey, Kirk Douglas rides his palomino, Whiskey, across the Albuquerque west mesa toward DukeCity
, in Bernal
County. It was filmed in 1961 and today the western horizon looks much the same. The ancient volcanoes, lava flow and City open space bound the western edge of the city. But this is changing. Developer SunCal hopes to build beyond the volcanoes.…

Killing time in the airport yesterday, I stumbled upon this stunning video about the Sandias

I count as one of the great blessings in my life a group of friends who've been meeting for lunch once a month for about ten years. We all worked together in media jobs at one time or another and several of us still work in the "biz." But, more importantly, we've seen one another through job losses, divorces, asshole ex-husbands, moves, deaths of family & friends, graduations, shopping, birthdays, major surgeries, minor surgeries, illnesses, cancer & weddings. We've watched one… Continue
