This week there have been a lot of trucks which seem to be hauling dirt from a spot just south of I-40 on the east bank of the river. There is a sign on the pedestrian bridge which crosses the acequia about 1/4 mile south which references "cleaning up your bosque" and suggests not walking on the levee for the next three weeks. Anyone our there know more detail about what's going on?
Who wants to do a sketch jam? Get a big spot, get a couple of live models and get back to basics. Set up some tables and just have a good old art time. A $5 dollar donation from the artists that would go to renting our space and to the models for their time. So grabs your pens and beers, wines and cheeses, and let's get out and do some art. Let me know if you're interested an i will set it up. Give some input on what day, what time, and any advice. www.myspace.com/theangryyears or… Continue
Would balding, middle-aged men like to be werewolves at night if it meant they could have hair for a few more hours?
My youngest thinks so. One evening this past week, my husband was in the back yard with our son when they heard some howling in the distance. To tease my son, my husband starting making up a wild scenario about the howling - perhaps it was a werewolf, and wasn't it coming from the direction of his school? Maybe it was his… Continue
What an unbelievably historic election!!! Throughout the night I thought about my personal political journey, my belief system and values. You could say that my beliefs were literally formed around the kitchen table. I thought about what Barelas Babe posted a few weeks ago.
Political discussions were common with my family. I remember my mother, my aunt and… Continue
Hi! I just created a new group for people who are getting married in the Duke City. I'm tying the knot in May and basically just need some help with ideas and planning stuff. If you're engaged, already married, or just interested in marriage and all the crap that goes along with it: JOIN THE GROUP! Thanks! :D
NOB HILL--If you are under 40, you have never voted for any president that wasn't a Clinton or a Bush. If you are voting for the first time, you weren't even alive before the Bush and Clinton years. Those years divided America right down the middle: a 50-50 split filled with some of the worst of American politics. Year after year we put up with the other half of our country...all the time wondering how they ever got to be so stupid, so gullible, or so… Continue
I come to Duke City Fix often despite my busy schedule because I believe it's important to participate in this community. And, I will continue to participate even if you give me the honor of serving in Congress. I know that direct political appeals are sometimes frowned upon in this community, but I wanted to share the following note I just sent to my supporters because this is one of the…Continue
Just announced with a cool commercial on SNL - a free tall cup of Starbucks coffee on November 4th if you go into any Starbucks and tell your favorite barista/o that you voted. They'll even take your word for it.
See you all at the Albuquerque Nob Hill Starbucks on election day. Patrick, Charlene and Caitlin and all the Starbucksians there will take good care of you.

BOOOOooooo....toooooo......youuuuuuuuuuu..... if you didn't make it to the Big Race on Nob Hill with many people joining in with costumes, merriment, and questions like, "What are you?"
What brings people out on Halloween? Curiosity? Of course, you can't imagine what the guy next door will come up with next! Contests? Of course! YOU might be the one who wins the Grand Prize! What a story to tell your children. Liquor? Of course! It releases your… Continue

One of the two guests is a spokesperson for the right-wing… Continue
Yah, "remote addition". You heard me. I jetted off to my old "haunts" (haha) in Hollyweird for Halloween. But what a small world it is. I ran into some people from ABQ or who are friends with people from home. I gotta make this quick as I am running late & my head is pounding.
We spent last night at The Rainbow Bar and Grill (Sunset Strip) with the ghost of Keith Moon and other dead rock stars. I went as the ghost of my former… Continue
Bicycling 11 miles with a wig and face paint is far better if you're not alone. Last night, at least 50 cyclists gathered like a freak show at Triangle Park for a Halloween joy ride through Albuquerque. From Nob Hill to downtown and Old Town, we cruised with only minimal incident -- a lost pink wing, a showdown with a muscle truck. Final stop: Marble…Continue
