Woe. Wide. Uh. Wides A Widow Woe-uh.

It's not every day one gets to participate in a rescue, and it's not a bad way at all to begin an afternoon. It's also an opportunity to understand that, as sucky as you think your day is going to be, someone else's day might have the potential to suck way harder.

Had some business to wade through at the North Valley Mail Carrier Annex on Montano yesterday (Saturday), and the missus graciously agreed to drop me off before running her errands. I was going to be there all afternoon,… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Levi Romero... One Last Cruise, Taos Plaza

Of all the poems Levi has written, I asked for this one. It is as iconic a piece of writing about New Mexico as there is. Read it and smile. Here's to Taos Plaza: to the low-riders, the tourists, the young ladies in their mini-faldas. Here's to cruising through all those yesterdays.

And no matter how many the years, how far removed, or how long the distance from the road once traveled, what it is still is, because it was, because… Continue

Solas Review

Recently won tickets to the Solas concert here on Duke City Fix and promised to write a review, well, here it is!

All in all an enjoyable night out for one that didn't happen. At least two of the band members barely made it out of Ireland before they close the airports down again for the grumpy volcano 'Eyjafjallajokull', only to then have fun with the Abq winds on their flight from Phoenix to Abq. On the personal side, I had my back go out for the first time in years, and being new… Continue

Differing Demographics

There's an interesting survey up at krqe.com today, that got me thinking about how consumers of local TV and local TV websites are different than consumers of Duke City Fix.

The question is: "How often do you check your Facebook page?"

And right now, the results are clear: The majority of KRQE website visitors are not on Facebook. I wonder what the results would be here on… Continue

As the days get warmer try La Michoacana De Paquime to help cool down

One of my husband's and my favorite places to go on a hot day is La Michoacana De Paquime. There are two locations here in town, one on Central and Coors and one on Zuni and San Pedro I don't even know if when I say the name that I am pronouncing it correctly but that isn't what matters. What matters is the tasty goodies that await inside. I love their paletas which are ice pops made with fresh fruit and are usually water- or milk- based. My favorite… Continue

Best Intentions

Today's post was going to be an insightful piece on the toxic world we live in here, with thoughtful examinations of three main stories that bumped around in my brain recently. All day, while focusing on occupational tasks, I kept trying to think of phrases and fragments to take with me, in order to use them here, for your collective benefit. My provocative post for this week was going to relate divers personal… Continue

Dark Enough

Lisa Gill's work is beloved among poets in New Mexico. In part this is because, like New York poet Frank O’Hara, Gill is a permission-giver (though it isn't likely O'Hara's "hum-colored cabs" will appear anywhere in a Gill poem). By example, her work indirectly instructs the reader what can be done within the poem, not what can't.

At the same time, her work exemplifies both freedom and rigor, whimsy and heft, and ebullience and… Continue

El Paisa and the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Library System

One place that my husband and I love to go to get great food is El Paisa. It is located at 820 Bridge SW. They serve Mexican food such as burritos, tacos and tortas. Before El Paisa became a restaurant it started as a cart that the owner would sell burritos out of. I personally really like their chile relleno burritos and their carne asada tacos. My husband's fav is the menudo (I can't stand the stuff but he is weird like that). The food is… Continue

A Match Struck, or How Youtube Got Crafty

Before Words Afire's 10th Anniversary came matchmaking----writers in UNM's MFA for dramatic writing were partnered with directors. Was it love at first sight? I don't know, but during their ten-minute youtube interviews with Chloe Cousin, the rapport between director and writer for each of the five works being showcased this year was palpable.

And distinct.

And… Continue

A Tree for a Memory

May Day is almost here. The trees are leafed out, pollen is blowing in the wind and flowers are unfurling everywhere. I just planted a 4-in-1 apple tree in my backyard and it reminded me of something my mother mentioned. She has noticed the trees in the local parks that have plaques underneath them. Many of these are memorials to loved ones. With the city's stately elms now… Continue

Public Image Albuquerque, Pre-Simpsons

I ran across a tidy little clip reel of Bugs Bunny's "Albuquerque" quotes. I have no idea if it's comprehensive, nor when the individual scenes date from, but I began to wonder if this could have been the first popular culture reference point for the Duke City. I mean, since the cartoon began in the 40's and seemingly these likely date from the 60's or 70's at the latest, what could have come… Continue
