Year Long Road Trip Experiment Comes to Burque



Not sure how long they'll be in town or if they've already skedaddled up north to the Democratic Convention. And it's good to see that Joel-Peter Witkin is still at it...…

Dear Black Honda Civic

I'm sorry I got in your way this morning in front of my house as I turned my car around. I know you have important things to do, otherwise you wouldn't be speeding on my residential 25mph street and swerving around me on the wrong side of the road. I'll make sure that my 6 year old, my two cats, and my dog are all out of the way for you tomorrow. Maybe I should have all my neighbors block off the road for you so you could speed down it unimpeded. And that Scion and Toyota truck on… Continue

NM Could Decide the 2008 Race (no really!)

I'm one of the few (it seems) that thinks the November Presidential election is going to be close. Very close. I've also heard many times that New Mexico will be an "important swing state". But I've always laughed at that idea. My November prediction was that the race would be decided by a bigger state with much more than New Mexico's five measly electoral votes, and probably long before we finished counting our ballots. But which one? Florida… Continue

Shouts from Albuquerque

In a round about bizarre twist in the blogosphere, while catching up on the weekend blogs, specifically "Bob Cesca's Goddamn Awesome Blog", I ended up at a place called lovestevie.net, where she writes:



"Leaving New Mexico almost made me cry; not just because I knew I… Continue

1940s New Mexico Video

My favorite line: "New Mexico was admitted to the Union, as recently as 1912."

The video goes wonky during one of the more interesting parts, anybody know where that open pit copper mine was…

There's No Possible Way This Would Be Misused



$100,000 for police to spy on bus stops. Anyone willing to bet they can turn those things on ANY time they want to sneak a peek at who's going where and when? Are the bus stops really THAT dangerous? Yesterday: major traffic intersections; today: bus stops;… Continue

Super Tuesday





I'm not gonna call shenanigans yet, but the past two weeks have been pretty crazy. Who here hasn't gotten 10 calls from Hillary this last week? This morning, I'm home with the ill child, the phone rings... Hillary campaign. Again. So the guy starts in on his shtick, and as I try and politely tell him I have heard it already the call waiting beep sounds. Probably my wife or the doctor I think to myself, and half panic cause I'm a tard with this particular phone and… Continue

Damn YOU albuquirkygal !!!

It seems that half the ebay auctions that I bid on end up being won by a certain person called "albuquirkygal". Old postcards, photos, general Albuquerque memorabilia. Who is this person? What is she doing with all that stuff? Is it in a museum somewhere? In an antique shop? I guess I could email her and ask directly but that would be too logical and simple. I prefer to make "anonymous" rants about… Continue

We Are Box Canyon Crazies

An interesting theory at least:



hookncrook.livejournal.com



"...Albuquerque is in a BOX CANYON...and the preveiling winds keep recycling themselves, flowing up and down and around the box. That is why Albuquerque is the CRAZIEST CITY in all of NM...the naturally

recycled air...all those hundreds of thousands of people breathing in

the same carbon dioxide they… Continue
