Morning Fix: Not So Much

Time to Celebrate Persian New Year!

No Rooz is almost here! That's Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring (technically, the exact moment of the vernal equinox; this year, it's March 21 at 5:44am). I grew up within a sizable Iranian community in Milwaukee, and this was the social event of the year, hands down. There would be one or more huge parties with everyone dressed to the nines (and those Iranian ladies can get fancy, let me tell you), tons of food,… Continue

Resting Places and an Appeal to Repeal

Every time I drive to the airport, I see the San Jose Cemetery just west of I-25 and south of Gibson. I always tell myself that one of these days I must stop and check out the cemetery on foot.

This past weekend I did just that.

Finding the entrance to the cemetery was a bit of a challenge – the dirt road from Gibson is blocked off due to construction on Gibson, and so I ended up entering from Edith just south of Gibson. There’s… Continue

Life and Death on the West Mesa

Most of the time I am taking photographs of the beautiful scenery in New Mexico, but when we travel to Pajarito Mesa things change a bit. Today I spent the afternoon in the west mesa, and I don't know why it is, but I get this compelling sense of urgency to drive myself to the area for pictures.

Last Wall Standing

At first glance… Continue

The Alvarado Has Come Back For A Visit, So Give the Old Girl A Chance

The Albuquerque Museum recently opened a new exhibit that explores the history, style and romantic era of the Alvarado Hotel. Our own beautiful old Harvey House, right in the heart of our city, knocked down in 1970 and now kind-of memorialized by the Alvarado Transit Center, which sits on the same ground.

I went for a very quick look this past week, but wanted to save the real visit to be shared with my guy, who is a wild… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Hakim Bellamy... Home Invasion

"Home Invasion" is a love poem to the wonders of the city and countryside that stole his heart. Now how can Hollywood compete with that?

Hakim Bellamy is a two-time National Champion in the Poetry Slam scene. He was a member of the 2005 National Poetry Slam Champs Team Albuquerque in his first year of poetry slam. The following year he was a member of the 2006 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational Champs Team UNM. He has won the City… Continue

Last weekend's Global Dance Fest offering was brought to N4th by Gunilla Heilborn of Sweden. The title, "Potato Country," referred either to an Irish story that was woven into the piece, or the emotional range of some of the characters, or more likely, those things and more. As this year's GDF unfolds with its Latitudes North theme, it provides multidimensional glimpses into the Scandinavian soul. The lack of linear narrative… Continue

Move Over, Zoolander

With an Albuquerque contestant on this season's Next Top Model, hopes are running high in the Duke City for the new round of auditioners. We had to hoof it out to the West Side this past Tuesday to get in on the action. My own hopes were cruelly dashed by the age limit. Let me know when America's Next Top Model: Thirtysomething Edition starts… Continue

Barelas Acequia hunting,

At the request of a friend, im reposting a post I made to the Albuquerque Urban Exploring blog (abq_urbex)

I plan to continue the hunt and I will of course post more photos.

So as of my last posting about the seemingly boring subject of hunting for the the Barelas Acequia/Creek/Ditch, and any possible tunnels that may be involved, I have come across some new information,… Continue

C.S.I. Flying Star: Black Beans, Tight Jeans, and a Fork of Fudge

NOB HILL FLYING STAR--It is hard not to notice the torn cushions in this Flying Star. Every booth seems to have them. And it has not escaped the attention of the Morning Coffee Detectives. I don't want to sound overly concerned about something that is obviously out-of-sight as soon as one sits down, but I was determined to get to the bottom of it...so to speak.

Edwin's Theory

The morning busser had a plausible explanation which… Continue

Wanna see 'em fall asleep and pick their nose?

I had an unusual Saturday night this week. I was on Twitter when I noticed an invitation from Gwyneth Doland of The New Mexico Independent to come to a live webcast at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe where she was live blogging with some other folks. Having never done either of these things before, I was intrigued, and so off I went to join them in live cyberspace. Live? Not being one to even think IM was anything but an annoyance while I am… Continue

Strange Days

“Strange days have found us. Strange days have tracked us down” –The Doors.

I can often be overheard spewing forth such tidbits as my continued genuine surprise at not winning the Powerball. Well guess what… I didn’t win again! On the bright side- I was only off by 5 numbers. But I have seen such strange “signs” in my world lately that it could happen. That… or it’s the… Continue
