I’m up too late on a Saturday night (for reasons of insomnia, not fun) and feel too groggy to throw on some clothes and walk a few blocks down the street to the Church of Beethoven
this Sunday morning.
So I make my mug of Ohori’s Italian Roast
drip coffee, all the while dithering over whether I want to start my day with the New York… Continue

Three great events this weekend came and went, and here's quick overviews of them all.
On Friday the 25th, we hosted ThouShaltNot at The Agency, a synthpop/post punk band touring thru here signed to Dancing Ferret Discs. The show went off quite well, The turnout was very respectable, and I believe all the bands had fun. Blood For Soil opened the night with their very KMFDM/Thrill Kill Cult sound (even doing a cover of TKK's "Sex on Wheels", lovely), Then ThouShaltNot took the stage… Continue

Well, I survived my weekend of baseball. The Isotopes, however, did not make it easy.
I haven't said anything about Friday or Saturday night's games, because, well, they were kinda bad. In both contests, the 'Topes fell behind early, due to a combination of poor pitching and porous defense. Then, they couldn't come back. Boo! Suffice to say, I was desperately hoping that the finale, tonight, would be a better affair.
Initially, it seemed my hopes would be dashed. The… Continue

Pet paws beware! Puncture vine is everywhere in with the nightshade and mallow. All day I spent pulling up goatheads; weed whacking would only make them stronger. The humidity, and heat and my mind wanders. Maybe those ones will be too small to grow seeds. . . . That one is a lookalike, isn't it? . . . I thought I had done that area already? . . .…

The Grower's Market at Robinson Park is so much more
than organic veggies and great art---it's a party. There was a great old timey music/bluegrass band today: the Young Edwards Band, and all three played and sang beautifully, alone and in harmony.
If I had any inclination at all towards having new babies, this would have created deep longing in… Continue

I was having some success in my newly found profession of designing websites for clients. Although I came to this new profession with some experience, it had never really been a full time job for me. Yet in less than six months I had managed to secure seven accounts and at the same time I would also get a part time job with a familiar employer working in technical services. But it didn’t start like this. The last twenty years I spent as a street cop… Continue

firstly, is RockSquawk kinda slow these days? I posted the article below in hopes of igniting a good conversation with other studio owners (posted in the studio section of Squawk), engineers, and others... but this post just sat there... no love... kinda weak if you ask me. I thought maybe... just maybe... at least the studio owners, engineers and producers of this town could find common ground to talk about recording music, gear, ups and downs of studio ownership, working with other engineers,… Continue

this is matie-one of the owners of self serve-and I'm scared for the clinics in New Mexico
Thanks to the fix
I just found out that another planned parenthood clinic was attacked this week.
Since December of last year there have been 4 different clinics targeted by violence.

Friday, July 25 2008. It's 6pm and we've just parked at the lot on 5th and Copper. Usually I'm here to visit the Main Library, but tonight we're here for the Civic Cinema
. The show doesn't start for until 8:30, so we walk over to Central. The first order of business is obtaining dinner.
Tonight we're… Continue

The Beijing Olympics are just two weeks away, and Rio Rancho native / La Cueva HS graduate Joey Hagerty is representing our fair town on the Men's Gymnastics team. Joey's parents and sister are planning to go to Beijing to cheer him on as he lives his dream, and you can help!
There is going to be a car wash this weekend to help raise funds for the Hagerty family at the Auto Zone on Paseo del Norte near Louisiana. There will be Lobo… Continue

I've been noticing an awful lot of road construction around Albuquerque lately. This could be because I'd been away for almost two weeks, then I came back and the construction seems to have exploded. It reminded me of some favorite memories growing up, and since some friends of mine had asked, I posted it on my personal blog.
I've so… Continue

So, I'm going to be spending a LOT of time at Isotopes Park this weekend. How much time? Well, I was at tonight's game. And I'll be at tomorrow's night's, too. And Saturday's. And Sunday's. Kind of a good thing I like baseball, eh?
Well, if the rest of the games are as good as tonight's, I'll be in good shape.
Of course, if the rest of the games start off like tonight's that might be bad. See, after breezing through the first inning, the 'Topes ran into some trouble in the… Continue

Today Karlita and I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum
It's overwhelming---more than I am emotionally able to stand.
So I believe that I act in the spirit of Almighty God; by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
Although I follow and believe the teachings of Jesus, I do not call… Continue

I went to see Cathryn McGill sing in Old Town last night. The performance was part of the New Mexico Jazz Festival. I first heard her on KUNM talking about the festival, and was interested enough to at least check out the free performance. I was really impressed by her talent. She sang a variety of songs, mostly in the R&B vein but some jazz and blues. I found several of her original compositions compelling, especially one she wrote for her mother "The Hand That Rocked My Cradle". She has a… Continue

I remembered everything else: a bottle of water, my hat, my car keys, sunglasses, sun screen, my mother. But I forgot my camera. In searching Flickr for Creative Commons photos to use to illustrate this post, I came across a collection from an old friend from Arkansas (thanks, Clinton Steeds
!). Albuquerque is such a "small world" town that I accidentally run into people who don't even live… Continue
