Cowboy Junkies Concert Review

Thanks to the Duke City Fix and AMP Concerts, my wife and I were able to attend the Cowboy Junkies show at the Hispanic Cultural Center last night. We arrived at the advertised start time, 7:30, and found our chairs. At first glance our seats, which were extra chairs set up in aisle between upper and lower seating, seemed to leave a little to be desired. However, almost immediately I realized these were going to be great seats...… Continue

(photo credit: Kristen Kohlstruk)



Once again, with a tip of the hat to Adelita (who tips her hat to Matt Lauer, whose producers tip their collective hat to Carmen Sandiego), my six year old daughter, Anneliese Grey, and I would like… Continue

Morning Fix: GLAMBERT!

  • For of you who don't give two hoots about Kris Allen ... Adam Lambert is coming to Albuquerque on August 3rd. That's right, he of the heavy eyeliner and gravity-defying hair will be at the Sunshine Theater this summer. And in other music news, Pat Benatar herself will be at the…

Next Frontier: Albuquerque

Duke City locals know that use of the words “Frontier” and “Albuquerque” in a sentence means one thing. For the policy wonks at the Brookings Institution, these words couple together in a way that has nothing to do with cinnamon rolls, John Wayne, or the rug room.



Last… Continue

Whether you're a chile farmer or chile lover... Whether you're a backyard gardener or a local fruit connoiseur, this week is for you. It's time to go hug a honeybee for National Pollinator Week.



Councilor O'Malley donned a bee veil last week to learn about local beekeeping efforts and came on down to the hives I manage as a volunteer for… Continue

The Sunday Poem.... Sirena Rayes' "Esperanza Drive"

Sirena Rayes is the 18 years old daughter of the poet featured last week, Mitch Rayes. She is the only one in her family who was born in Albuquerque, and is very happy to hold the first generation slot. Writers on the other hand, show up in her family repeatedly from generation to generation. Luckily that gene made it to Albuquerque, and Sirena is… Continue

Recovery Cat 6.19.2010

They all had gone out on that stream, bearing the sword, and often the torch, messengers of the might within the land, bearers of a spark from the sacred fire. Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness (1899/1902), part 1.…

What Single Word Best Describes Your Father?

If Kevin R. Elder of Tricklock asked you what single word best describes your father, what would you say? I'd say, "Eccentric." And then follow-up to explain how there is a crystal vase on my father's bureau that is filled with 1000s of plastic stir sticks collected from MacDonalds one cup-of-coffee-at-a-time. Perhaps all fathers have their quirks and rituals. This is a good weekend for contemplating the role of fathers... and that's exactly what… Continue

Quit being a pest!

It felt good to get my silverleaf nightshade complaints out a couple of posts ago. Maybe it's the hot weather. I blinked and missed spring. Maybe it's the tribulations of trying to restart a neglected yard. But it seems that I have a lot of pesty problems this year.



Ants



I don't generally have an issue with ants. They're fine by me. Except when they bite and leave welts every time I step out onto my back patio. I have to… Continue

The Paolo in Peril, Save Our Soleri

sfis paolo soleri amphitheater

As you may have heard, the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater at Santa Fe Indian School is in immediate danger of demolition. The theater was designed in 1965 by visionary architect Paolo Soleri, who is most noted for pioneering concepts in the fields of environmental architecture and alternative urban planning. Many alumni of the Santa Fe Indian School are outraged at the idea of losing this unique theater and have mobilized to save "The Paolo". I feel… Continue

Bearology: When You're in the Tent, and the Bear is in the Car

SILVER CREEK CAMPGROUND, TAHOE NAT'L FOREST, CA--I see people in Albuquerque's east mountains are having some problems with bears. Interesting, but let me tell you about last night.



MaryAnn and I were camped in a grove of ponderosa and aspen not far from the shores of Lake Tahoe. What we did not know last night was that eight bears… Continue

JOY HARJO: an afternoon delight

joy harjo




I have always wanted to see, in person, the wonderous Albuquerque resident, Joy Harjo, and last Sunday afternoon that opportunity presented itself to me at long last. She is a remarkable woman, poet, and musician. The afternoon spent in and around the Anasazi Wine Fields of Placitas was also a nice and easy trip 'outta town' as it were. This event was a part of the Duende Poetry Reading Series. Kudos to the Duende-hos.…
