One winter I threw out some black oil sunflower seeds on my patio. I don't even know why I had the seeds, but in an effort to reduce the extraneous stuff in my house, out they went. I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone, in that non-literal way: I'd feed some birds and while the birds were feeding, my brood of indoor cats would have some entertainment. The excitement of chasing leaves from inside the house just wasn't cutting it anymore for the poor, bored creatures.
Over this past weekend I had the pleasure of acting for Spork Films again, for the 48 hour film project. It went quite well, I got to play a role I had some fun with - being a sleazy guy. If you want to check out the film, you can do so here:
Now some reviews:
Visually amazing, this is what Hellboy I should have been - like a comic book on steroids. Guillemo Del Toro obviously cares about this project… Continue
The Rio Chama is designated as a Wild and Scenic River for very good reason. It is without question one of the most beautiful regions in New Mexico. BLM Site. I went with my buddy Keith and below is 'our story'.
We left on a Saturday with the idea of rafting on Sun & Mon. The quick way up would have been to go through
Santa Fe and Espanola, but… Continue
A few days ago I was standing in front of The French Riviera bakery eating some bread and talking w/ a friend, all of a sudden I hear many car horns blasting, I look, tearing *ss down the middle of the southbound lane of 4th street is this chihuahua, in front of 10 or so backed-up motorists,so i step into northbound traffic, it was kind of crazy, made eye contact w/ the dog, some motion, went down to one knee and he came to me, i scooped him up,… Continue
In a six week project on the street directly out our front door new water and sewage lines are going in. The trough a dozen feet from our stoop is so deep all I can see now is a bobbing construction hat and the occasional shovel full of dirt flung into the air.
That's our cute Casita, second door on the right near downtown ABQ. Other than the noise, the occasional water reductions are getting old… Continue
Last night was the Happy Hour for web geeks.
Even though I've taken somewhat of a leave of absence from the web geek world, it's still fun to meet up and chat with others that understand exactly what I'm saying when I start speaking "geek".
I might be moving to Albuquerque in Sept or Oct. I have wanted to live there for many years and now finally I might get the chance to do so. If I come there I will be working near the intersection of I-25 and Osuna. Can someone recommend a good apartment complex near there. I will probably live in an apartment for 9 months to a year and then my wife will join me and we'll buy a house. Thanks
It's been a while since I posted that question, and the opportunity to move to Albuquerque… Continue
Just doing a quick post to talk about the project I'm working on. Since my 2 year long contract has ended with KeyToSound, I've been taking some time to not only clean my home office, but also pick up "odd jobs" around town. I've been talking to Rick over at Production Central ABQ (a film / video production house) and landed a networking gig laying fiber optic, Cat5 and Cat6 with my brother in law. It's pretty cool to say that we've ran over a thousand feet of fiber optic, covering 7 production… Continue
I've just had my third extremely creepy encounter this summer as a cyclist verses a seemingly crazy motorist. Three times in the last couple months I've had a car pull up behind me on traffic free two-lane streets and just lay their horn on me. One time I was outright terrified because the car actually followed me for over a block down Candeleria while continuously honking. Considering it was 6:45 in the morning there wasn't any other traffic, or even other pedestrians out, to give me a hand… Continue
Just a couple miles North of Madrid, along the Turquoise Trail, is artist Tammy Jean Lange's subversive vision of bone and trash called Tiny Town. Amongst disgarded manikens and scrap metal lurks a collection of little homes and businesses populated by beheaded, burned and sometimes lewd dolls.
I got an email from Adelita this week telling me that I must check out LaurenMojica, an Albuquerque based Etsy seller. I love her stuff and thought she needed to be featured on DCF! Here is how she describes her work:
'As you can see I have a thing for Skulls and Flowers--…Continue
Ever since I’ve been commuting from Albuquerque to the Capital City (not the City Different, but the one supposedly built on a swamp), I’ve been tantalized by glimpses of the old Albuquerque Airport terminal, built in 1939.
Last week, I decided to see it up close and in person.
It was an adventure.
The first challenge is getting to it. Mapquest and Google…
