Who Are ABQ's Arts Audiences?

According to a piece in the LA Times, "Popular conception says the arts' supporters are graying and shriveling. But it may be that as the crowd's individuals change, its age doesn't."



This is an interesting concept - that arts patrons are always older. Does this generalization fit the ABQ audience? Personally, when the spouse and I see live theater in town, we're almost… Continue

Albuquerque Aloft at Apache Elementary

I just arrived home from a lovely morning at Apache Elementary School, one of the schools that participate in Albuquerque Aloft. Hot drinks, breakfast, and beautiful balloons - I couldn't ask for a better place to be.



Enjoy the photos!…

LittleTowHeads

Every few months it seems like all of the women I know are pregnant, right now is one of those times. This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller responds to the gift requirements of these inevitable times with some serious cuteness. Here are some of LittleTowHeads' clever and adorable embroidered wares:…

Where are we again?



While skimming BoingBoing today, I glanced over an image that looked very much like rural New Mexico. Here's the image:



Where was the picture taken? Afghanistan, it turns out. Here's the original post, complete with at least a half dozen pictures… Continue

Fall Color Fix

Autumn in Albuquerque is sometimes summer and sometimes fall. Which is to say, if you don't keep your eyes open you will miss half the colors. It's 85 degrees in the SE heights and the morning glories are going wild. The peak is here- each day the blossoms are smaller and the leaves are starting to get scraggly. Still, a good sight to see for the next week or two.…

Artscrawl Video Now Posted!



The new Artscrawl video from the Albuquerque Art Business Association is online! Take a look and let them know what you think. It features voiceover by the fabulous Pamela Michaelis, and the fine dramatic work of local actors Don Morse and Courtney Bell. The gist is to give visitors a sense of this Albuquerque tradition and that it is anything but boring. What's the… Continue

Rise Up - The House of Bread Cometh

The first Albuquerque location of House of Bread is now open at Indian School and Carlisle near Los Poblanos Organics.



I bought a loaf of honey whole wheat and tasted a bit of the Dakota Bread - yum. Check it out for yourself. Looks like it's a franchise, with local owners.



In that handy little strip mall you can now get your organic vegetables, your… Continue

From Our Friends at Planned Parenthood

Dear Friend of PPNM,



We are shocked and galled!



Yesterday PPNM staff exiting our parking lot noticed an injured woman lying semi-conscious on the sidewalk in front of our surgical clinic. Staff immediately summoned police and paramedics who responded quickly, ultimately taking the woman to the hospital. She had not been a patient here, but had obviously been abused by someone somewhere else, staggered here and collapsed.



Meanwhile, several anti-choice protesters… Continue

confession time: I used to be a cocktail waitress at Brian O'Brien's

So, what's this about Brian O'Brien's burning down? I saw the raw footage on the Abq Journal's website, but can't find a dang news story about it.



I guess it's confession time: I used to work at that bar. Yes, I worked at the bar with the freaking dumbest name ever. In 2002, I returned to Abq from Europe--where my impending marriage had just crumbled--and I needed to line up some work so I could save up enough money to move to Colorado and start an internship with High Country News.… Continue

Are Teacher Pensions Safe? A Look At the NMERB Portfolio

NOB HILL--I looked at the TV screen yesterday afternoon while the DOW settled into a stunning decline of 777 points. The S&P alone suffered a paper loss of around $700 billion. $700,000,000,000!! That number may sound familiar--it is the same figure for the total of the so-called bailout that was defeated by Congress yesterday. Gone in one day. Not scared yet? How about this: if you had $500,000 in your 401K yesterday you lost about $35,000 in an… Continue

Returning to Albuquerque

I’ve been staring at the screen off and on for days, trying to figure out what to blog about this week.

This happens sometimes when I’ve been away from Albuquerque for too long. And I have been away longer than usual, thanks to some extra travel this month. But in some ways, I'm never that far away from Albuquerque.



So I’m wondering:



Should I start with the most popular question of the week from my colleagues here in DC -… Continue

Monday Morning Traffic

I had the pleasure of driving in trafffic this morning at 7:45. As I was driving it seemed amazing to me. Everyone on the road is in a rush to get to where they are going so much so they are willing to cause traffic to come to a complete stop so they could move to the front of the line. Thank goodness I only have to venture in to that mess every once in a while. And business owners who have employees. Did you ever consider staggering your start times so everybody doesn't have to be at work at… Continue
