Hark, the Bitcoin Warlord Cometh

I really hate advertising. I like to think I’m immune to it. While I’m sure marketing experts would say that’s impossible, I’d reply, “Try me.” Yet I do realize that without successful advertising strategies laudable endeavors will fail. So, how to make advertising truly worth your time and attention? Enter Kevin…

Bánh Mì Coda: Waffles, Tofu and More!

Dining at San Pedro Mart: Some Baklava for the Road

Albuquerque has an embarrassment of good restaurants. This past Sunday we had planned to visit a local eatery, but they were closed. It was simply no matter. Alternatives abound and we can always return to the original place later.…

Downtown's Madonna of the Trail

Maybe I’m just imagining it, but it seems like there are a lot of monuments to various and sometimes obscure causes and personages scattered around Albuquerque. Many of these are quite old and have been moved a time or two from their original locations, usually ending up in someplace a bit more…quiet, shall we…

Willis Earl Beal – The Surprising Sound of Albuquerque

I swear it’s not my intention to turn this into a music column, but bear with me. I didn’t hear much New Mexican music growing up. I had images of cities I’d never seen—Detroit, Washington DC, London—based solely on their music, but Al Hurricane and Robert Mirabal weren’t exactly well-known in the upper Midwest.…

Albuquerque Neighborhood Walking Tour Series

Last fall I took us on a ramshackle tour of Central Ave/Route 66 and said that sometimes I just want to walk around. Sure, I like nice, relaxing hikes out in nature. But I also enjoy wandering down back…

More High Times at Low Spirits

It was nice to see a good-sized and enthusiastic crowd for Los Angeles roots-rockers the Blasters and simpatico locals Cowboys and Indian at Low Spirits this past Sunday. A man in front of me appeared deeply hurt when the fellow at the…

Albuquerque Shut That Whole Thing Down

It has been news nationwide. Because we have a clinic providing abortions after 20 weeks, and because this terrorist operation wanted a municipal election for a court test, our fair city was selected by Operation Rescue as the locus for their latest abortion battlefront. They organized a citizen-petition to put a ban on abortions on a ballot for a vote city-wide. As has been widely reported, it failed. Here is my account of our campaign.

I wrote about the petition drive…

Sunday Morning on the Mother Road

When I was younger I often listened to a song with the line, “You should get to know your town just like I know mine.” I took this to heart and while more than a couple decades and towns have gone by since, the idea still very much resonates with me. This is regardless of the fact that I now suspect the lyric may be an…

WHEELS Museum: Still Rolling After Two Decades

If you’ve found yourself down in the Barelas Neighborhood recently and taken a stroll around the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe (ATSF) Rail Yards, you might’ve peered through the chain link fence at the towering empty buildings and noticed a distinct lack of activity. Sure, there could’ve been a homeless man making…

The Sunday Poem: Kira Pelowitz...Plums

Albuquerque's Industrial Cathedral: The ATSF Rail Yards

There are numerous towns in New Mexico that owe their lives to the railroad. Many can also lay their deaths at the feet of that very same railroad, which quickly abandoned them when their services were no longer needed. One city that can trace the foundation of its modern character to the railroad but has…
