Ever go to the Downtown Growers Market and stand in line for some delicious basil lemonade and pie? If so, you might have met Raven, of Black Bird Pies. She's been a staple at the Downtown Growers Market and other growers markets around town since I can't remember when! Raven, or…
Note: since I don't really blog, I would like to post the stories I write for Local iQ to DCF. If that is not kosher with this community (I'm pretty green about this kind of thing), I am happy to not post and rather read all of your fine blogs. I just felt the need to exchange. —KH
In New Mexico, times have been tough. The Land of Enchantment has been gripped by economic uncertainty for over three years now. But, after almost half a decade living year-to-year (and sometimes month-to-month), New Mexico may be turning a corner and it’s time we got serious about a new, long-term vision for the Land of Enchantment. We must stop rehashing the same old issues and put forth some bold new initiatives.
Denise Schultz spent 30 years teaching young directors in UNM's Department of Theatre and Dance. Two weekends ago, she was at it again, this time leading a session on staging for local directors associated with the…
In remembrance of our founding father, Dennis Hopper, on the year anniversary of his death. We miss you Dennis!
“In 2009, we set out to create a film festival in Albuquerque. It was my dream to screen Easy Rider since it was the 40th Anniversary of the film that I believe set the indie film revolution in motion.
Someone once told me to dream big so I dreamed that I was in the Kimo Theater watching Easy Rider with Dennis Hopper. I knew…
GMO issue at the New Mexico state legislature 2011
UPDATE: Due to a strong lobbying push from the large corporations that patent and market these GMOs, and the fact that the NM Chili Association is "in-bed" with these corporations, this bill was LOST on the house floor in the week following this post.
ON SHOULD KNOW: That, aside from permenently invading native, natural seed stock, one of the huge dangers of…
Have I said lately just how much I love Albuquerque, and New Mexico in general?
If I haven't, I feel the need to state it anew. I love the climate, the landscape, the cuisine, and the great people we've met in person and on-line (via Duke City Fix). I feel great about the opportunity I've taken to revisit the state of my youth (geographically speaking; I've never left the figurative state) and I'm doubly glad that my wife, who had her doubts prior to our relocation, has loved it all… Continue
My front tire keeps going down. Very slowly, but down it does go. Doesn't appear to have a puncture, so is this due to elevation? And yet the rear tire doesn't lose air nearly as rapidly. I need a new pump. The one I have sucks. Well, blows actually, but you know what I mean. It might as well suck, I guess is what I mean. I don't think you should have to pause to take your pulse when airing up a dang bicycle tire, y'know?
It is a few days past our one-year anniversary in Albuquerque.… Continue
Real estate Darwinism
Perspective: 2020 Re-Envision
By Inman News, Tuesday, March 2, 2010.
Inman NewsToday's brokers and agents who survive and lead us out of this current mess are going to be those most willing to change. They will share three key attributes: they will be the most competent in their craft, utilize all available technology, and be the most dedicated to customer service.
It seems like that should be the case today, but some, and perhaps a… Continue

Tonight we'll be taking delivery of a new old used desk. A guy named Archie (I think) from Thrift Town on Menaul offered to bring it to us since the desk is not disassembleable (I doubt that's a real word, actually, unless it is once it's published, in which case I deem it open source; have fun!), and therefore has not a hope of fitting into the Yaris.
The desk at which I'm currently sitting is a cherry veneer executive-style… Continue
In light of the Lobos starting off their season undefeated - I'm reminded why I don't like television. Since August 27, 2008 - UNM Lobo games have been broadcast on channel 616 on DIRECTV CHOICE or with a subscription to DIRECTV's Sportspack.
I'm a fan...grew up watching the Lobos on channel 13...listening to games on 770 KKOB...wishing I could go to Coop Camp - Michael Cooper was my first favorite NBA player as a kid. Anyone from Burque knows what Lobo basketball means to the city.… Continue
Know what's awesome? Not in the continent-forming, solar flare, oceans rising to conquer the land sense, but in the d00d! sense of the word as it's used in parlance these days?
Road trips. Road trips rock.
Give me a car (and while you're at it, a competent driver, because I don't like to eat and drive at the same time and we should all be grateful for this), a couple of Micky Diaz's sausage bisquits, a tallish coffee, and a… Continue

Take Whitney's Tour! Be sure you have some drinks and snacks by your comfy chair, for 1702 photos make for an enjoyable…
