The Muchachos Thank You, Dr. George!


My childhood hero and role model. RIP, Dr. George!

George Fischbeck, who became a phenomenon in Albuquerque as a television science teacher and meteorologist in the 1960s and early ’70s, before being lured to Los Angeles where he continued as a top rated TV weatherman, died early Wednesday from natural causes....

Dolly’s Party Last December

Mar 25, 2015

Here is Dolly's excellent fitness party at Momo's in December. (I appear briefly at 1:22, having fun, but looking a trifle clueless.)

Eclipse Of The Cash Bundlers

Mar 25, 2015

The eclipse of the campaign cash bundlers. They used to be in high demand, but this time they can't compete with the SuperPACs. Time to push a shopping cart around town and collect recyclables like the rest of us:

“They are only going to people who are multi-multi-millionaires and billionaires and raising big money...

Bella

Mar 25, 2015

Decision time. Do I take Bella the Labrador Retriever, or not? Joe the Plumber had always managed to keep her before, but his situation has deteriorated to the point where options are dwindling. And she is a sweetheart....

Ken Ford vs. The Feds

Mar 25, 2015

Wow. DOE overreach, post-9/11. The net effect over time will be to create a citizenry dangerously uneducated about nuclear weapons. I once met a Iranian who thought buildings in a city center could shield a bomb's blast from damaging the rest of the city. Crap like that. Article contains an interesting oversight, which...

UNM Dance Memory

Mar 25, 2015

This is pretty cool. Back around 1977 I took a dance movement class at UNM with Jennifer Predock, and it's nice to see she's still choreographing modern dance: for example here, at White Sands, NM.

Cruz Gets In My Craw

Mar 25, 2015

It's interesting listening to blowhard Ted Cruz as he spins a variety of fictions and tales, too many to fully enumerate, such as:2:32-3:07: Americans have had times before now when the outlook for the new generation looked bad. Remember The Depression...

Final Performance of DMTC’s "Sweeney Todd" 2015

Here's a wonderful picture! (Don't know who took the photo.)The view is from the stage left wing, top of The Cube, with Jori Gonzales (Johanna) in the trunk and Eimi Taormina (The Beggar Woman) in the background. It always amazed me how quickly Jori c...
