Burquewood Watch Remote Addition?



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

The Gnome, The Monsignor, and other delights of Albuquerque's Halloween Bike Ride



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

Albuquerque Journal Endorses Darren White

Congressional Picks



1st District: Darren White — We are going to ask voters to set aside the attack ads of the last few weeks and the partisanship of the last eight years, to instead focus on the dedication and work ethic needed to represent them as a freshman in Congress. The candidate who has proven he has both is Darren White.



The Republican is conversant on the big issues facing our nation, from the economy (create jobs and cut taxes) to energy (put everything on the… Continue

TIN ROOF! rusted.

Today was a momentous day. One of those days that I am proud to say "I was there."



It's one of those situations that I really think you had to be there to experience, but there were moments where I had serious chills and tears in my eyes. I got to be a part of both National and New Mexican history.



What happened? The National Atomic Museum's B-52 bomber, that has been sitting in the same spot at the old museum location on base for THIRTY FIVE YEARS, had one of the final… Continue

Happy Halloween

I went out around the neighborhood looking for Halloween displays, but I didn't find much. There were lots of little ghosts and pumpkins and one pet cemetery. A decent helping of webs and a handful of scarecrows. Seems like things are a little subdued this year. I suspect everyone is preoccupied with the election.



We're tentatively planning to hand out candy for awhile and then mosey on to Nob Hill, the Press Club and downtown to… Continue

Pornotopia on channel 4

for some reason I can't get the video to post--

but you can watch it here

The shirt molly is wearing is a "Viva la Vibrator" t-shirt...apparently self love is too racy for the 10' oclock news..



There's so much I'd like to say about this clip--

but for now I'll let it speak for itself.



I have an absolutely incredible festival to go work on--and dildos to order..

yup--i'm totally living… Continue

Infrared pigeon brains, and the art of sustainability



Reducing our Use.



Built in 1925, the historic two-story brick building that we call "The Harwood" presents an exciting (and some times confounding) opportunity to translate an inefficient structure in to a model for sustainable (re)building. We have decided to open up this translation process to others in the community, as we firmly believe that every moment is a teaching moment. And these are lessons that we all need to… Continue

Guild Cinema = endless downer

Don't get me wrong, I love the guild, or rather I WANT to . . . I was raised going to funky little old theaters, doing the Rocky Horror thing (before the military chants and stupid pre-shows; in my day only the film had a staring role-but I digress). Tonight I went out with my husband; great meal at the Korean Barbecue House, we went to the guild. I had seen in the Alibi they were playing a Hammer film with Oliver Reed (William Shatner wishes he could over-act so perfectly) in a biker… Continue

so, you're gonna vote, RIGHT??

... For whomever you're voting for - You're going to vote, right?



This is NOT an Obama/Mccain conversation - it's a question of yes/no.



I realize that there's always a lot of talk about "Just don't bother, it doesn't make a difference", or "(so and so) will win without my help, anyway" - but that's flat out not true. The only way to change a broken machine is to do something to start changing it.



Don't fall for the "Don't bother to vote" spin, no matter who's… Continue

My Candidate for New Mexico's Official State Pastime: Piñon Picking

OAK FLAT, 20 MI. SOUTH OF TIJERAS--Is this the year? Traditional wisdom has it that bumper crops of piñon nuts come only once every seven years. Are we in that lucky period? I first thought so a couple weeks ago when MaryAnn and I drove the big loop around the Gila: piñon trees absolutely loaded with pine cones. Piñon picking is so common there that stiles have been provided to let pickers on to BLM and National Forest land from the highways. They… Continue
