The ABQ Garden Revisited

Now that we're finally coming out of our unseasonably hot streak, I can wander back into the garden for more than just the minutes it takes to water to keep the poor plants alive. I have a lot of first year plants that went in in the spring. So far, I have lost one lavender, one straightneck squash and one cat nip. The loss of the cat nip was mainly due to the attentions of the neighborhood cats. They literally loved it to… Continue

looking forward

it's been a while since i logged into the site, i don't know why. this *is* one of my favorite social networking sites. it seems like i log in once a year, however. it's certainly been a while since i blogged here. so much has happened since!



it would be terribly self-centered to recount all that here. however, as i slightly swelter in my warmish upstairs bedroom, i have to just admire my town, your town, this albuquerque town. it's so full of… Continue

In Celebration of Albuquerque

I was born and raised in Albuquerque. The Sandia Mountains have enveloped and embraced me most of my life. I've wandered off, for decades at a time, yet this is always home. Recently tattoo genius Richie Castillo was in town, and I had an opportunity to get some work by him. Richie is the rare tattoo artist that doesn't need other art work to go by. He and I chatted about my experience growing up here, and he began to draw on my arm. The finished work… Continue

Get the Creative Scoop from Mid-Schoolers

Alicia Lueras Maldonado let me know about this great opportunity for up-n-coming youth in the arts and for those of us who should be paying attention to --and helping to celebrate--the voices and stories and concerns of youth.

Quit being a pest!

It felt good to get my silverleaf nightshade complaints out a couple of posts ago. Maybe it's the hot weather. I blinked and missed spring. Maybe it's the tribulations of trying to restart a neglected yard. But it seems that I have a lot of pesty problems this year.



Ants



I don't generally have an issue with ants. They're fine by me. Except when they bite and leave welts every time I step out onto my back patio. I have to… Continue

Warehouse Fire on Broadway at I-25





Massive warehouse fire in the South Valley


Wondering about the smokage south of town today (6/11/2010) --Good news: it is not the Bosque burning but rather the unoccupied Karler Meat Packaging Facility. I took these pictures from I-25...



Per KOBtv:"Deputies say a one mile radius from 9111 Broadway Rd. SE is being evacuated due to smoke.Officials worry about two 500-gallon ammonia trucks near the fire...Broadway is currently closed… Continue

Remembering Dennis Hopper

Having been an Easyrider fan it was quite the treat when we started seeing Dennis Hopper around town. I even did a blog post last fall on what I observed him have for breakfast at the Flying Star. He and his lovely wife and a small entourage sat next to Karla and I on the back patio of the Rio Grande Star. He's really a beautiful man.



I was able to snap this photo of Hopper last July at the Albuquerque Film Festival awards ceremony.… Continue

Hard Rock Casino Albuquerque

hard rock casino albuquerque


I have been hearing the winds buzz and seen the new NE Heights' billboards announcing a non-existent website (to date), but the news is slim regarding the Hard Rock Casino of Albuquerque's opening as well as the "re-opening" of the Journal Pavilion as the Hard Rock Casino Pavilion.



You can Google… Continue

Everything's Coming Up Silverleaf Nightshade

Remember Spring's Two-a-Day posts from last year? A lot of us followed along as Spring tackled a major garden project. (How's it going nearly a year later, Spring?). I think about that every time I'm in my back yard, rehabilitating the garden, literally from the ground up. I'm going to try to follow in Spring's clogs and do some posts on the effort, trials, tribulations and triumphs of… Continue

Fuzz Bow Style

In summer of 1948 a man gathered some friends, a carpenter, and some blueprints. In the following months he erected a beautiful home in the SE Heights of Albuquerque. Years went by, deeds transferred, and finally in late 2006 my wife and I bought his house. It was in bad shape, but we had the time and energy to bring it back to life- and we did, one project after another, restoring its original charm while adding a few conveniences. This December the… Continue

The Benefits of Membership: ArtEdge

With each passing week it's getting colder outside, and that's been driving me inside more frequently. Bike rides and walks have given way to a gym membership. Working on the yard has given way to working on the plaster. Recreation outside my doorstep is imperative. That's why it's time to renew my Albuquerque Museum… Continue

The Pornotopia Community

It's pretty amazing how much work it is to put on a porn festival. The 3rd Annual Pornotopia Erotic Film Festival takes place in eight days according to the countdown clock on our website, and I continue to be grateful for all the individuals and organizations making Pornotopia 2009 possible.
