The City Renewable
There's free energy coming right out of the sky every day, so will Albuquerque put two and two together and make renewable energy happen? Perhaps Laura Paskus can tell us.
NEWS/OPINION
A Change in Weather
Gov. Bill Richardson is usually tough on crime, but this time he's not taking any guff, and telling nasty greenhouse gases to shove it.
MUSIC
Spotlight: Leiahdorus CD Release Party
Santa Fe synth-pop heros Leiahdorus, bring their hard to spell name to our hard to spell city for a splendid evening of incorrect grammar. Just joking, they're releasing an album and want us all to party with them and Burt (possibly back from his sea travels) at his Tiki Lounge.
FOOD
Eating In
Are sandwiches the answer to leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Now the answer may be yes, later the answer may be no. Laura Marrich explains how to transform turkey into something other than meat between bread.
FILM & TV
Rent
Rent: How will we pay it? How will we deal with our coniving slumlord? And what of our artistic urban lifestyles? What happens when someone we know catches an incurable virus? How do we display our street smarts? We sing, of course, we sing. And dance.
