Less of an Interview, More of a Love Letter

What do Alfred Hitchcock, Bryan Cranston, The Nutcracker and Finding Nemo have in common? The KiMo! Albuquerque's premier historical theater is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places and N.M. State Register of Cultural Properties. It's also an Albuquerque Historic Landmark.
The KiMo was created by immigrant Oreste Bachechi (the entrepreneur and owner of the Bachechi Open Space property) and designed by Carl Boller of the Boller Brothers architecture firm, based in Kansas City, Mo. Erected in 1927 (opening on Sept. 19, 1927), with an Art Deco-Pueblo Revival Style, the KiMo was named after the Tewa word for mountain lion as suggested by the Isleta Pueblo governor at the time, Pablo Abeita. One of the most well-known and intriguing stories about the KiMo is the explosion of 1951: a terrible accident resulting in the death of one child who is now said to haunt the building. The staff tends to the spirit of the boy, Bobby Darnall, by leaving him gifts and offerings—like toys and candy—in the backstage stairwell.
The theater became decrepit after a fire in the 1960s and was meant to be destroyed until a bond passed by voters in Albuquerque in 1977, allowing the city to purchase the building and renovate the space. Now it serves the community as one of the paramount cultural centers of the city.
The celebration of the 90th anniversary for the building begins at 7pm on Friday, Jan. 27, with author Douglas Preston discussing his novel. The Lost City of the Monkey God is about the legend of a 500-year-old cursed, city, where anyone who enters dies. For a full list of 90th anniversary events, continue to follow the KiMo event calendar and visit www.kimotickets.com.

Taming of the Ostrich
By Rini Grammer [ Wed Nov 16 2016 3:00 PM ]
A few years ago I was walking around my neighborhood, minding my own business. Two men whom I had never seen before approached me, speaking a strange language.
“Who are they? What do they want? Are they a threat?” I wondered silently and watched them from the corner of my eye.
The one closer to me held a stick by his face and it began to make noise. I was in shock.
“What is this? Witchcraft?” I reeled. Then it became pleasant. I lost myself in the whistling. I began to dance in a way I never had before. I was mystified. It was like my consciousness had been taken over by a higher power.
I regained my footing and left as the man nearest to me shouted something in a pleasant tone.
I will never forget that day.
The Daily Word in Trump, Russia and Mexico
By Rini Grammer [ Wed Nov 9 2016 2:28 PM ]
What do women around the world think of Trump winning the 2016 presidential election?
Can can look forward to big oil, not working with the UN, an end to federal funding to Los Angeles, New York City, Salt Lake City (and many more) as well as a withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership on Trump's first day in office.
Trump's data team predicted very accurately that he would win. How?
GM will be laying off over 2,000 workers at two different plants in January.
Trump's bff Vladimir Pussein (and co.) is excited he won.
So things are going to get all crazy with Mexico, huh?
There's a lot of hype around Conor McGregor for a reason.
Now here's some nice, happy things to read.
I Know What You're Doing This Evening

“Oh hello. I'm coming to you live, before the final results of the election. Here in the Capitol. The election results are coming in as we speak. I've just been handed a sticky note that reads 'No one voted,' is that right, Jerry? Heh, I voted, that's for sure. I sure did. Don't question me on that.
Oh no. Jerry's left the studio. I hear screaming outside. One moment, I'm going to look out the window. Oh, no. Jerry doused himself in gasoline. Well, he was kind of an imbecile, anyway. Still.
Too bad everyone assumed that someone else would vote, it seems we now live in a dystopia.
Signing off for the last time,
Don't let this become reality. Vote today.
