Holiday traditions run strong in my family. Like many here in Albuquerque, we make sure to have luminarias on Christmas Eve and a big pot of posole on the stove. Two more traditions that are important in our family are tamale making and the Annual Cousin Cookie Party.
I have a lot of cousins. Seriously. On my mom’s side there are so many female…Continue

A very wonderful, thoughtful, and visionary group of people created a place for the whole community to share - the Rail Yards Market. It was an overwhelmingly successful market that brought people from all over the city to gather as a community.
The city has a different idea of what that space should be. The…Continue
Let's just get this straight, Red Light Cameras is one of the coolest bands around.
They started as a Pixies inspired garage band, but after the addition of powerhouse vocalist, Amanda Machon, the band took a turn to become a soulful, blues inspired garage pop…Continue

For about a week I was without heat in my office. I work in a very old building and the radiators in the offices were ice cold. It was hard working in such a cold environment. I even posted a status on my Facebook page complaining about my very cold office. Many friends were sympathetic and offered space heaters and…Continue
In what is apparently the largest gift ever given to the UNM Athletics Department, The Pit will now be known as the WisePies Arena for the next 10 years. While it's at least a locally owned company,…Continue
You just can't talk about music in the Duke City without mentioning Alberto Nelson Sanchez, also known as Al Hurricane, the Godfather of New Mexico Hispano Music.

If you haven’t already read it, Bruce Welton wrote a …Continue
While my heart will always belong to the blues, reggae is a close second. The Harder They Come soundtrack was one of my favorite albums as a kid and is still in constant rotation in my playlists. I love reggae.
Back in 1993, three La Cueva students felt the same way about reggae and…Continue

Did you know that Small Business Saturday is November 29? Small Business Saturday is a great way to avoid the crush of Black Friday at the mall and big box stores, and a way to support local…
Couldn't resist. I had to go to the Levitated Toy Factory open house and check out this mystery business. Through the crush of people I was able to take a few photographs of what happens behind their doors. There were giant cardboard structures and small cardboard pieces for people to play with. Their …Continue
I know that Austin and Nashville are great music cities, but did you know that Albuquerque has a great musical history and incredible talent? That’s right, we have outstanding musicians, singers, and bands in this town!
