Archive for the ‘Archives’ category

Maddie♥

August 5, 2017

Over the years, some people return to the archives and it’s always nice to see them again. This was the first of four long trips out to Santa Fe that we got to meet Tracy’s adoreable kids. We had fun making them feel at home and creating a kid friendly room for movies, reading and art!

After a month, when Tracy, Alan, Ben and Maddie (my favorite 7 year old who loved my office dragons) left the archives, Gail made us some tasty root beer floats in the break room and I brought Maddie two dragons of her own. She promptly and intricately named each.

Intellectuals Love Pop Culture

February 14, 2016

I had a great learning experience at the 2016 Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (SWPACA) Conference thanks to scholarship funds. If I can’t find outside funds to attend this conference again next year, I would gladly pay my own way. I thought ARMA San Diego was the best conference I had been to until SWPACA. I love being around like minded intellectuals. There is really nothing like it. I do want a PhD someday.

I made it a point to keyword search the program (which was close to 150 pages) for the words archive(s), culture, history, and New Mexico. I focused my time at the conference on those sessions for the greater good. I love learning things to benefit both my knowledge and my agency. Everytime I could, I supported New Mexico professors and students by attending their presentations. There was so much great research presented during this conference. I also made a presentation there.

I did attend a small handful of sessions that were chosen because of personal interest. One was a session titled “Myth and Metaphor in the Works of J.R.R. Tolkien,” which happened to be delivered by a University of New Mexico (UNM) professor. Another awesome presentation gave an analysis of “Penny Dreadful,” which I love, by a teacher from Texas. That session featured another presentation on the research of a UNM professor and student on violent video games and children. There was one on how Batman’s suit employs STEM!! Then there was one on fetishism and the villainess. You know I went to that one!!

The mission of SWPACA is “to promote an innovative and nontraditional academic movement in Humanities and Social Sciences and to celebrate America’s cultural heritages. To provide an outlet for scholars, writers, and others interested in popular/American culture, to share ideas in a professional atmosphere, and to increase awareness and improve public perceptions of America’s cultural traditions and diverse populations.”

A Frosty Halloween

December 9, 2015

I finally got all of our Halloween photos together and it is almost Christmas! Yikes! Where does the time go? Everyone had great costumes and everyone in the archives dressed up this year. I loved that Rachel coincidentally picked my favorite super villain to come dressed as. She so pulled it off! All of the the costumes created by archives staff were custom builds. None of these were out of the box from Party City costumes! They are all so creative. I love it!

“Pain? You can’t stop me by hurting me! Don’t you know me at all? Pain is my boon companion! My stalwart friend! I am alive with pain every moment of every day! Ever since that fateful day when I was baptized in a vat of chemical goo, that corrosive stuff has burned through my skin like fire. Pain is my one true♥!”

Archivists’ and Records Managers’ Identities

August 13, 2015

This post is a good read. I completely agree with #2, as #1 is a reflection of professional ignorance! The articles cited at the end are interesting as well.

An Educational Trippy Trip to the Lone Star State

•••Flight Out•••

Last week I went to a conference in Austin, Texas to make a presentation and accept a leadership award. I learned so much during the course of the week and networked with many people. I visited the beautiful capitol and the Texas State Archives while I was there. 

Austin is an interesting city to say the least, and I can see why they have the saying “keep Austin weird.” After 5 was always a trippy adventure… from the crazy street people, to the bat bridge, to good eats. I didn’t take photos of the weird stuff though!

Amongst a gazillion bars, there was one real gym. It was a Gold’s. I like having a few drinks occasionally, but a gazillion bars is a far cry from my cup of tea! In my off work/downtime, I had the most fun on Lake Travis on my last day there.
