Shivering in Antici...

I’m not quite sure how old I was the first time I went to a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  I would say I was somewhere around 14 or 15 years old.  I remember being shocked, amazed, and intrigued.  I loved the energy.  I loved the music.  And, more than anything, I loved the…

Something New for ABQ

Most of you know that I am a burlesque performer. Most of you know that I am very proud of what I do, and the international community that supports the burlesque movement.  Every day I learn something new, and am in awe of and inspired by what performers in this genre are doing.  It is one of the most eclectic and jaw-dropping performance mediums I have ever known.  The traditional bump, grind, and tease aside - burlesque is…

This holiday - buy LOCAL and INDEPENDENT!

Every holiday season it is so easy to get swept up in the madness of big chain retail deals and steals. Even I was tempted to drag my ass out at 4am to try and grab the food processor I’ve been wanting at nearly 60% off retail. Thankfully, my food coma kept me from such insanity. However, it seems that on Black Friday… Continue

The battle for green

So, I'm officially in my sixth month of home ownership. My indoor decor progresses with every new Filmore poster, pulp art print, circus punk, or vinyl collectible I find.

But, my fiance and I have started… Continue

Morning Fix: THAT'S AMORE!

Morning Fix: We're not shy, we're contagious!

  • We don't even have enough money to keep them in classes, how exactly are we going to teach them financial planning?
  • Somehow, I don't think Obama intended people to trade in their old clunkers for new clunkers.…

Morning Fix: Is it better to pimp thyself or thy loved one?

New Mexico subsidizing empty seats to Chihuahua on Aeromexico, and there are no cute little dogs involved. wtf?

Morning Fix: Small reactors need love too

W.K. Kellogg Foundation + $300k in charitable giving to NM organizations = the need for more milk and a much bigger bowl.

Maybe Charter Schools aren't better than public after all...

my light green thumb appreciates the true skill of others

I was thinking today about how it's finally summertime. The pool near my house brims with kids and floaties and sunscreen daily. All the animals at the Zoo can be heard chattering away late into the evening. And my tummy has started to crave all the fresh local summer produce that I yearn for during the cold winter months.

One of the many things I love about… Continue

Fat Man & Little Boy ON THE MOVE!

Two of the most controversial artifacts in the collection of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History moved to their new home today. I took a ton of pictures and VIDEO! The whole process was much smoother and simpler than I imagined, and it is such a relief to see them sitting in the new space - alongside other artifacts that the museum had in storage all this time (like the… Continue

for the love of curves, sparkle, and twirling tassels

I think growing up I never knew what beauty really was. Looking back at childhood pictures, I realize that I didn’t really acknowledge the common notions of fashion, beauty, or mainstream iconology. In the past few months I have spent an ample amount of time looking at family photos, so this is something that has been on my mind a great deal. Those of you who know me best know that this was spawned by some extreme family drama culminating in the… Continue
