Summertime is ice cream time!

This might rightly go in the food group, but I figure this sort of public service announcement should be shared with everyone.

Ice cream used to be easy to come by in the university area. The Hippo was a much-revered establishment that used to keep our bellies cool and our hippie creds current. It's been gone for ages. And there was a Baskin Robbins at Central and Buena Vista that was open for many years.  Its closing about 5 years ago (maybe longer now?) was a huge…

Recovery Cat 5.14.2011

Blind faith is a faith that leads to fanaticism and dogmatism... blind

faith is a faith that we have to defend and impose on other people in

order to feel validated and safe.

The World is Smaller Than We Think

Tomorrow is a big day for UNM graduates. As some of you may have read, I’ll be among those marching in regalia. Part of my mind will be elsewhere, though.


I’ll be the first to admit that my education…

The French Wave in Nob Hill

CENTRAL AVE. FLYING STAR--The Artist Ken Saville came in for his morning coffee.  "There is a parking lot full of identical white Chrysler convertibles outside," he said.  Then he looked around the room.  About twenty French tourists had taken over that front room where we normally sit.  Our table was an…

The Sunday Poem: John Roche... 3 Poems from Road Ghosts (ALBUQUERQUE BURNING)

Albuquerque's impending bundle of joy

I’m sitting at home recently when a KOAT teaser comes on.  Shelly Ribando is talking about how she is going to make the “big announcement” about the physical changes that have been concerning some of her viewers.  I felt a little puzzled.  Why the big announcement?  It's obvious she's pregnant.  My mom called it months ago.  My dad, too, noticed that Shelly's face looked "different".  Maybe it was my mom's womanly instincts, or the fact she's given birth to seven…

Attention Women: Laundry Piling Up?

NOB HILL--I don't like to comment on the state of womanhood.  I generally leave that to the Albuquerque Journal.  And they certainly did that last weekend.  Their "monthly magazine for women," SAGE, was letting it all hang out last Sunday with a full page spread on how to do laundry.

The Sunday Poem: Lisa Gill... Two Poems from Caput Nili

Living isn't for cowards!  And documenting a difficult life isn't for those without a sense of humor.  These two poems detail what happens when the poet has self-diagnosed an incredibly serious condition, Multiple Sclerosis, but can't get her doctors to test for it.  And even that wasn't the full…

Recovery Cat 4.30.2011

Mice for dinner again? Can't we be a little more creative in here people? (April 19). I hear New York's finest pickpocket lives in the Monkey House,. He'd be perfect for my team (April 14). I know the Bronx Zoo doesn't like it when you tap on the glass, but I don't…

Earth Day, Communes, & the Fear of Failure

NOB HILL--Whatever the calendar says, Earth Day in Nob Hill means one thing:  the big street fair on Silver Ave. just behind La Montanita Co-op.  This year the "real" Earth Day was a week late.  The party occurred the week before.  And if you missed it, be assured all the regulars were there, Fig Man, bedding…

Something New for ABQ

Most of you know that I am a burlesque performer. Most of you know that I am very proud of what I do, and the international community that supports the burlesque movement.  Every day I learn something new, and am in awe of and inspired by what performers in this genre are doing.  It is one of the most eclectic and jaw-dropping performance mediums I have ever known.  The traditional bump, grind, and tease aside - burlesque is…

The Sunday Poem: Robert Masterson... Stealing Cars for Kelly Ashner

Ever tried to impress your fantasy girl?  The poet thinks back a few decades to when Albuquerque's used car lot owners were huge celebrities and Masterson entertained those sorts of dreams.  Actually, this sounds a lot like somebody who could be on television today.

Currently an English professor at…
