  • Movie Review: 'Dark Knight' doesn't deliver

    It’s entirely possible that I’ve had my fill of superhero movies this summer.
    After all, I’ve seen both “The Avengers” (fun and entertaining) and “The Amazing Spider-Man” (better than the other recent Spidey incarnation) since school let out.
    So maybe, just maybe, I caught “The Dark Knight Rises” with superhero burnout — kind of like trying to stuff that last turkey sandwich into your craw five days after Thanksgiving.
    But of the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, I have this to say: “meh.”

  • Slipknot creates a little Mayhem

    I’ve been to many concerts: country, heavy metal, blues and even a few rap concerts. I like almost all types of music and typically enjoy seeing groups perform live.
    Despite the various shows I’ve seen, I had never been to a music festival until the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to Albuquerque. I wasn’t quite sure how long the festival would last, or exactly what to expect. I did know this: in addition to the main stage at the Hard Rock Pavilion, there would be two additional stages on which various bands would perform.

  • Celebrate lavender

    Anyone that’s visited Rancho de las Golondrinas in Santa Fe knows that it’s steeped in history.
    In addition to educating visitors about Spanish Colonial ways of life, the living museum also offers various festivals and events throughout the year. One of the museum’s regular events is the Herb and Lavender Fair. This year, will mark its 10th year and will be from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
    The fair provides visitors with the opportunity to listen to Marimba and Flamenco music while celebrating their love of herbs and lavender. In addition, there will also be tours of the Las Golondrinas herb gardens, arts and crafts vendors and lavender crafts vendors.

  • Skydiver Fearless Felix jumps from 18 miles up

    Skydiver "Fearless Felix" Baumgartner has done it again.

    On Wednesday, Baumgartner took another stratospheric leap, this time from an altitude of more than 18 miles — an estimated 96,640 feet, nearly three times higher than cruising jetliners. He landed safely near Roswell, N.M. His top speed was an estimated 536 mph, said Brian Utley, an official observer on site.
