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.

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

Albuquerque, 5 things drawing us back

In 2006, I blogged about how Albuquerque is for families what Austin is for music, in a word, awesome.

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.



Tickets are about to be printed, Pornotopia T-shirts are being designed, flyers are being distributed, sponsors are preparing… Continue

love thy neighbor, even when he's a raging jackass

my neighbor to the south is unstable. the only time he deals with his neighbors is when he's drunk, ready to exchange cheap verbal blows with anyone who will allow themselves to be sucked into his vortex of anger and hatred.



he regularly takes the opportunity after dark to split logs, break boards and smash cinder blocks in his back yard. he's a homeowner, and he'll take every opportunity to point out that as renters, my neighbor and i, who share the property to the north of his… Continue

Election Trend or Fluke?

**There were a number of hyperlinks to sources that, unfortunately, did not make it when I posted this... I'll try to fix it.**



To some, this line of questioning may seem naive. I am a political rookie, I confess. I'm just (and maybe I shouldn't be?) surprised by the election results and I wanted to open this up for (civilized, please) discussion if anyone's game.



The president is a Democrat. Congress has a Democratic majority.

Albuquerque had the same Democrat for… Continue

Biking to the Balloon Fiesta

This Saturday I made my first trek to the Balloon Fiesta by bicycle. From Fringecrest, it took 50 minutes to get there, 45 to come back and I've never enjoyed the event so much as I did this time. While others were cold and in long lines for coffee, I was warm, energized, and ready to enjoy. The coolest thing: Valet parking for bicycles. Just head up the North Diversion channel, turn right at the sign, and hand your bike over to the valet. No charge.… Continue

all's fair...

Ah, the fair. It's the yearly melting pot that brings Albuquerque and New Mexico together in the name of puke rides and funnel cakes. Horses, cattle, adorable bunny rabbits and artwork are hauled in from across the state. We identify with each other culturally through these things. It's one of the oldest methods of social engagement and definition. It smacks of the childlike excitement at the prospect of cotton candy and mechanical rides; it's tied strongly to ideas of discovery, or observation… Continue
