A very cool event takes place next Friday, October 19, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center- Creative Albuquerque's 3rd Annual Creative Economy Symposium, a day-long fete, which features 2 keynote speakers, 8 local panelists- some of whom are Duke City Fix members (naturally) and fosters a dialogue that aims to bridge the gap between creativity and profit.
Entitled "PROFIT: From Striving…Continue
The stuff you want to have happen with blogs is happening—readers are getting involved in the detecting. Well, a reader. Dee turned me onto the idea of Googling the past residents of this house—way too simple for me! She even did some research and came up with the birth and death dates for Esther Nylin, who lived longer in my house than anyone else. It’s interesting to think of the people who spent time within these walls—did they quarrel (undoubtedly), make babies, read good books,…Continue

I recently went on a hike up in the Placita's to see the famed Sandia Man Cave. If you are not familiar with this then let me tell ya. Some dude, a student from UNM, back in the 30's found it, said there were some old bones of a Wooly Mammoth, a Giant Sloth and some ancient tools left there by some folk traveling through about 10,000 years ago.
As this has been highly debated among the intellectual science types, I won't go into detail (intellectual science types bore me)…Continue
Last night marks the second week since the big eclipse event in Albuquerque. That means that the moon moved to the opposite side of the playground and another eclipse happened, this time a partial of the full moon.
Reading about the event in a news story last night I prepped my equipment so everything would be ready at 4:30am when I was to crawl out of bed and see if there was anything worth shooting.
I was glad I was ready for the event, for when my wife…Continue
Great sky last night and I may have gotten a trifecta of solar images while shooting the eclipse. First of course is the ring of fire itself, but I may have also gotten an image of a solar flare, a sunspot, and the classic Shark Fin sunset which is so Albuquerque.
This image reminds me of one of those Star War scenes from one of the originals. I don't even mind the reverse reflection.
The rest of the images in larger size can be seen …Continue

Pride and Equality Magazine hosted "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" this weekend. Originally the film, which played at the Guild Theater, was to run on Friday and Saturday (10/21-22) nights only but due to an overwhelming response they added a third viewing on Sunday (10/23). When the film was announced I dutifully purchased my ticktet along with many other Rocky lovers. I don't actually remember when the last regular showing of Rocky occurred in Albuquerque or in what theater but I do…Continue
