4:34 pm - Silent screening!

For you silent movie fans, there will be a 35mm print screening of City Lights at the CCA this Saturday and Sunday. Maybe Friday as well, but it's not on the schedule as of yet.

Yes, you can rent and/or buy City Lights on DVD, but there's nothing like watching a silent movie in a nice dark theater, on a huge screen. And such an occurrence is rare outside of big (bigger) cities.

3:11 pm - Burn restrictions?

Bernalillo County has a law where you are only allowed to burn fires, including fireplace and woodstove fires, on certain days because of pollution. Does anyone know if Santa Fe has any laws like this? All I've been able to find are restrictions on open (outdoor) burning. Thanks in advance.

"Paleo-Thelema", T Polyphilus' discussion of Crowley's "antecedents of Thelema" and others who came before 666 and announced the prominence of Will and Love in the human condition.

"Translating Liber Al", a discussion of the issue of translation as it relates to interpretation, difficulties of translating The Book of the Law, and testimonies from the Frater Superiors' Representatives of Deutschland and Italia.

9:33 pm - Doomsayer's Digest now available!

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The Subtlety or Force Encampment of Albuquerque, NM has released its premier issue of the new quarterly local body publication: Doomsayer's Digest.

There are only 240 in print with less than 50 remaining!

This publication is developed and edited by the Director of the US-OTO's "best of" anthology project as announced on USGL's website's 2007 Strategic Plan. It is designed in response to a lacking of explorative academia he noticed while surveying Local Body Publications from within the past 20 years.

The Doomsayer's Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry or art, despite the editor's appreciation of each, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica without the empiricist fetishism born of post-modernism or the abortive birth therefrom in the form of materialism. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.

In Volume 1, Issue 1, 2008's fall issue, there are two featured articles. One is titled "Of Iron and Youth" and explores the concept of the soldiery of the Eisenjugend (through Hermeneutic analysis) as a symptom of the Aeon of Horus' difficulties for the modern warrior and the common mercenary. The other article, pompously titled "The Phoenix," is an exploration of the mystic aviary that bears the same name and is the first and only comprehensive hermeneutic, historical, anthropological, traditionalist, and magical dissertation on this very relevant subject. It has been praised by persons within and without the Order as a "must read for any serious esotericist" and "subtle allegory of the initiated experience."

I do personally hope yall enjoy it and get yourself a copy and a subscription. They're on sale for $5 (plus shippin') a pop.

You can order a copy for yourself at the Subtlety or Force Encampment's website: sof-oto.org. Subscriptions are also available. Love is the law, love under will.

6:50 am - inside scoop?

My husband and I are tossing around the idea of relocating from the east coast to NM or Ariz.  We're both artists and live a somewhat alternative lifestyle.  From the last few entries I can tell this is a decent group of people-any tips as far as the most open-minded cities, living expenses, club scene, artist scene (as in do people actually buy art there?  Cause the don't in my town).

8:37 pm - Arcade game repair...
zoolzool I have two arcade games that need some work done to them. One is a Street Fighter 1 game, the other is a Sega After Burner upright. The Street Fighter needs some cleaning and possibly some work done on the controls. The After Burner is one I bought broken. I managed to change out some parts, but never got it to work. It's been like this for two years and I want to get it up and running.

I'd like to get these games fixed, and I prefer to drop the game off, rather than have the technician come out to me. The games are in a small storage unit and will probably be there for a while. Any help is appreciated.

2:53 pm - Comics exhibition opening at MIAC: Sunday, May 11, 1:00-4:00PM



Santa Fe, NMStorytelling has long been a part of Native American culture. Comic Art Indigène which opens at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture on May 11, 2008 looks at how storytelling has been used through comics and comic inspired art to express the contemporary Native American experience. Under the larger definition of narrative art, comic art is more related to Native American art traditions than one might expect. The earliest surviving examples of such narrative art is rock art. The historic examples used in the exhibition, such as photographs of rock art, ledger art, and ceramics are meant to link Native American art traditions with contemporary voices.

Comic Art Indigène examines how American Indian artists articulate identity, reclaim stereotypes, worldview, politics, and culture through the kinetic expression of sequential art. Inspired by this unique medium, using its icons, tropes and dynamism, this is a new world of American Indian art, full of the brash excitement first seen on newsprint a century ago, sometimes unrefined, even crude at times, but never sterile.

Opening events on Sunday, May 11th , from 1-4pm include a drum group, artist roundtable, gallery tours, costume contest, and family activities including; make your own comic or ledger art, create your superhero emblem, and more.  The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is located on Museum Hill™, Camino Lejo off Old Santa Fe Trail in Santa Fe, NM.

4:48 am - Woo-Hoo!!!

As I was driving down Cerrillos this afternoon, I saw a Cloud Cliff Bakery truck. My partner rolled down the window and said, "It really sucks that you're closing" to which the girl replied, "I talked him into staying open! We are not closing!"

So, we shall see whether they close or not...

7:52 pm - Santa Fe Daily Photo
miafeliz Stumbled on this blog earlier tonight and thought I'd post a link here in case no one else has seen it before.

There's a new breakfast and lunch place at 409 Guadalupe between the Lottaburger and the dry cleaners. It's called Clafuoutis, It's French, fabulous and reasonable. The bread is heavenly and I'm not even going to gush about the homemade desserts. It's best to get there early. I think they serve from 7ish, till 4. Just lunch and dinner. Lunch starts promptly at 11:30.

10:23 pm - Various Reviews of Fanta Se...

Automotive Stores

#1) Pep Boys: ★★
Grrrr Rating: 5
Her: "No, it's not in stock. It's a special order only. It's $89..."
Me: "...but the guy I talked to when I called said one was in fact in stock, and it was only $65... Are you sure you're looking at the right part?"
Her: "Yeah, we don't have it. Would you like me to order it?"
Me: "No"

#2) AutoZone: ★
Grrrr Rating: 10
While at PepBoys, the previously mentioned girl tried to call AutoZone to inquire if they had the part I needed. ... waiting... waiting... waiting... They never bothered to answer their phone that must have been ringing for 5 minutes. So we give up on the phone and drive over there... Holy BuhJesus the line was crazy long. ... waiting... waiting... so THIS is why they don't answer the phones here. They only have 2 people working here... waiting... waiting...
Him: "Yep, we have one in stock for $65.
Me: "Hell yeah!!!" *fist in the air* "I'll take it!"
He- walks back and forth around the store for a little bit: "Nope, not there... just a second"
... waiting... waiting...
Him: "Hang on a minute"
... waiting... waiting...
He- comes back: "Guess we don't have it... sorry"

#3) Checker: ★★★★★
Wait in line for a minute or less. The guy at the counter was super cool and friendly. Had the part on the counter in front of me and my receipt printing in less than 2 minutes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!


Maria's: ★
I remember Maria's once being pretty good food. WTF happened? The enchilada's were nothing special at all, the black beans were over cooked, dry as hell, and bland to boot; the rice was undercooked, dry, and dull as well. YUCK. I guess the only thing they still have going for them is their Margarita selection.

Saigon: ★★★★★
Is this the only place to get decent Pho in town? I mean, it's not the best, but it's the best I've had in Santa Fe...

That's all for now...
