Upcoming Bond Issue A

General Obligation Bonds are voted for by the public, and paid for with increases in our property taxes. Bond Issue A is for Senior Citizen Facility Improvements. I am all for that since I think it is a good thing, and I will be a senior citizen sooner than I like to think. I downloaded the League of Women Voters of Central NM Voter'sGuide2008.pdf to sift through this years Ammendments and Bond… Continue

Oscillation 2008 Review

Oscillation 2008 came to a close this weekend, and left me with the usual feeling of some postpartum depression that usually comes with doing something huge and then seeing it finish up. While this was the most challenging Oscillation in years, it was also my favorite, I’d have to say.

I arrived at the Cell Theatre around 1 on friday, along with Markus, our sound master. I had already been to two Walmarts earlier, and been loading gear out into my car for the whole morning. Upon… Continue

Why Not 10 Days Ago?

I'm puzzled that this was announced today (Tues, 10/14). The trail was open 10 days ago (or more) and was very convenient for getting to Balloon Fiesta. Why wasn't it announced before Fiesta?

Trail now goes from UNM to Alameda Written by Nancy Tipton for the Albuquerque Journal, last updated Tuesday, October 14, 2008, at 12:01:43

Fiamma Fumana at the Cooperage

I had the pleasure Saturday night of attending an AMP concert at the Cooperage. The performing group was Fiamma Fumana from Italy. There music would be hard to label and that is a good thing. There cd loaded as Pop music and they seemed to have a world music flair. The instrumentation from the group was vocal, accordian, drums, bagpipe and dj. Occasionally the accordian player would play guitar and the bagpipe player would perform on Fife, there was constant wonderful vocal harmonies. The first… Continue

Brown in Burque

It is easier to be brown in Burque. One of the unexpected advantages to moving to Albuquerque (and to Barelas in particular) was the realization that having olive skin, dark hair and eyes that hinted at something other than European ancestry didn't matter so much here.

After a lifetime of "… Continue

No alcohol on Sundays?!

Since California is a blue state ran by do-gooder liberals who ban so-called "assault weapons", it's a little shocking to discover something where NM outdoes those dorks, but here it is: apparently Costco sells wine on Sundays starting at noon only (and that is considered an exception from the law banning Sunday sales period). Go go nanny state government, amaze the newcomers.

Businesses are starting to sniff around The Place in Nob Hill


Back before The Place in Nob Hill (on Central between Wellesley and Tulane) was approved by the city, I went to one of the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association Meetings where the project was being discussed. I haven't been back to another meeting since then, one old lady was hissing at some of the speakers she disagreed with and people booed… Continue

An Open Letter to the People In Charge of the Lead/Coal Work

So, I don't know what all goes into restriping a busy pair of one-way streets from three lanes down to two. I imagine it's got to be a difficult task, full of gnarly logistical decisions.

That said, I can't help but think that things are going decidedly wrong when the lane markers have changed nearly every single time I drive through. As a resident of the student ghetto, I'm through there quite a lot, actually, and the recent work makes it far more adventurous than I'm usually… Continue

The City unveils ABQ Ride's Online Trip Planner

Yesterday, my boss Mayor Marty Chavez and Transit Director Greg Payne announced a new tool for Transit users in the form of an Online Trip Planner. I can’t think of a better place for feedback than the DCF community. My thinking is that this makes the bus system a lot easier and approachable, especially for people who haven’t set foot on a city bus before, but may now be so inclined. So, what do you… Continue

Duke City Solar - Part 1

This is a sketch of my roof. I have often felt that a flat roof contains a lot of wasted space.

I'm not precisely sure when, but at some point in June gas was around $4/gallon, PNM had recently raised its rates, and I started to wonder what I could do to isolate my family from steadily increasing energy expenses. I started reading up on solar electric systems, costs and benefits. After lengthy research I decided to install one of these… Continue

Martini Mike's Burquewood Watch! TADA!

In my long awaited kickoff to another semi-regular column (?) er “blog”… I hate that term… may I present the “Burquewood Watch”. Is that taken? (Long awaited by whom?) Say it… “geek”. O.K. so not to resemble the invasive Paparazzi (and I didn’t have my camera with me tsk tsk tsk) let’s just say I saw so & so last night lurking about… Continue
