When the sun disappeared last night I attended the 3rd annual Outdoor Vision Fest at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. It was amazing to see some of the multimedia exhibits that the students created. They were interactive, animated, colorful and very creative. The media students include animators, filmmakers, graphic designers, and photographers. Some exhibits were projected onto buildings, trees, geometric shapes, glass, water, and material.
One of my favorite projections was designed by Keith Riggs, who is married to my cousin Jessica. There was even a projection with poetic quotes by infamous authors. I also adored a piece which was flapping in the wind, had edgy music, and a human body which appeared to be ripping off skin. It must have been a symbolic piece. Last night I decided it is finally time for me to dabble with Adobe After Effects. I need to see what I’m really made of.
Without art, writing, technology and music, I would certainly die! I guess when you’re in love~ you’re in love. Here are a few of the photographs I took last night.
The collaborative art team of Ethan Bach, J Craig Tompkins and Charles Veasey are pleased to announce that The Royal Road Project is currently showing at New Mexico State Arts at the Bataan Memorial Building 407 Gallisteo St in Santa Fe, New Mexico and then it will be moved just down the road to Currents 2013 at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe located at 555 Camino de la Familia, Santa Fe, New Mexico from June 14, 2013 to June 30, 2013.
Unfortunately, the representative for New Mexico’s 3rd congressional district had a change of heart over the last year.
My web site will blackout tomorrow in protest of the

You should do the same.

Good morning, everyone! Have I the treat for you today!
I would like to introduce you all to Felicia Lujan, moderator of one of my favorite blogs, My Voyage Through Time! The title of the blog speaks the truth of it, and on so many levels. Felicia is an archivist with a very healthy love of history, a love that I can identify with.
Great training video of an extremely ripped gentleman getting it done and putting in the work in the gym. I love the audio the most in this video. It is about making sacrifices, being disciplined, making smart choices, not cheating and knowing when to say no. We all have it in us to be in the greatest shape of our lives but it is totally up to you.
Rihanna goes ahead and premieres the official video for her new single ‘Stay’ featuring Mikky Ekko. The simple visual features RiRi naked in a tub and is directed by Sophie Muller. “Unapologetic” is in stores now.
I have been waiting for this video. The fact that she is naked is symbolic. Being weak, helpless, exposed, and vulnerable is always painful. -----Felicia
Wish Miguel’s 2013 Grammy performance would be Hard Way.
One of his best! This is an awesome, awesome, simply awesome song.
On Friday I took the time to pull all of my old and new Donell Jones CDs together. He has to be one of my all time favorite RnB artists. Now there is one gifted man. There are not many artists that you can say bring it on every single track when they put a new album out.
I want to make a mix with some of the best tracks Mr. Jones has given us. At this point, I have a few ideas for a mix title. Today while I was exercising at the track, I combed through my mega Jonezzz list~ deleting the songs that I didn’t see fit for the special mix I want to create. While the cold chill brushed my cheeks I wondered what happened to Mr. Jones? How could such an awesome man just disappear?
There is one web site I check regularly for music news in this particular genre. Tonight I checked it and low and behold~ just a few posts down I discovered that Donell is indeed looking to make a major comeback in the first half of 2013. The post went up on January 31. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! I just can’t wait!!! Check out the video for Shorty Got Her Eyes on Me~~ That’s some pure awesomeness!
After hearing that song, if you still don’t believe that DJ has the love sounds on hot lock, take a look at the February 14th event scheduled at the Warfield in Cali. Blaqline Ent is presenting “Love Affair” on Valentine’s Day with Donell Jones, Teedra Moses, Musiq Soulchild and Netta B. Wish I could be there…

Tonight I saw the music video for Stay by Rihanna featuring Mikky Ekko for the first time. I have been listening to the song for a while now and I absolutely love it. It is such an awesome song. Now that I see that the video is set in Havana in 1956, I like it even more. This is just a couple of years after Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature. In late 1956 he is said to have been reminded of writing notebooks he had hidden in the late 1920s. Hemingway located the the lost treasures and by 1957 returned to Havana to complete a memoir. In the video, Rihanna is enveloped with a Cuban man.
Well I learned many things after hours here in Annapolis. I’m still not up on the two hour time difference, but I’m getting there. It’s barely after 11 in good ole New Mexico! Here is a list of some things I found interesting tonight.
~I can only wonder what is going on inside the cabins of house boats on the bay. Hum?? Several people were at work and play there.
~This is a very historic site. It would take me days to write about just that. Annapolis was once the capitol of the United States. I didn’t know that.
~At least two Presidents (if not more) have deep roots here in Annapolis (GW and AL), which is awesome.
~Christmas lights were beautiful on the docks and around the bay.
~Oh and over here the Salvation Army bell ringers were two cute women. They were playing songs by request on a kazoo! Really?? Now that deserved a small donation right?
~What is the only decent seafood I have come across so far? Yes- crab cakes. Still not sure why??
~Ice cream is good to eat right before cardio! Really? What the? No really— what the??
~There are about as many runners who are into fitness as there are pubs, bars, or watering holes (whatever you like to call it) with people into drinking. I must have seen 20 pubs and 20 people running on an evening stroll in 1 hour!! Strange I know? Ummm… I prefer running~ and so that’s what I did.
~LifeFitness makes a sick-sick-sick with the sickness treadmill. Oh yes they do! The fitness center in my hotel is small, but well equip. Who doesn’t want to jam hot Ciara videos while burning off crab cakes and ice cream?
~And…a long bath is simply divine after all of thee above!
~Song of the Week~
What an awesome song!!!
Rascal Flatts~ just perfect.
I locked down the three disc “Trilogy” by The Weeknd this weekend. The compilation features remastered versions of three of the mixtapes already released by The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) who is a Canadian from Ontario. The album is all black and was released under Universal Republic Records, and The Weeknd’s very own label XO. His label so deserves to be called XO! Maybe it should even be called XOXO? Even though I had most of the tracks already, I had to support this amazing singer/songwriter. Not only did he get noticed by releasing his songs under his pen name on YouTube, but on one song that I had not heard (“Montreal”) he seductively sings in French. So awesome with lyrics to die for.
