Actor Dennis Hopper was rushed to a New York City hospital this afternoon. Hopper recently wrapped-up his participation at the Taos Summer of Love, celebrating the 40th anniversary of his iconic NM film Easy Rider, and “Hopper at the Harwood”, an exhibit of his original artwork.
Hopper was in NYC to promote Crash, the Starz television series which films here in New Mexico. He was scheduled to appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and the Today Show.
His publicist states he is “merely suffering from flu-like symptoms”. We wish him a speedy recovery.
To vote or not to vote? It’s like that point in your life when you have to get out of a toxic relationship but it just seems so much easier to stay. Maybe because you don’t think your vote will count, like when you lack the confidence of knowing that you can do better. Change seems hard and settling may feel safer, like when you’re used to your bad relationship and staying is easier than the work of raising your standards, expecting more and moving on.
You can’t do better – You can
You can change him – You can’t
You think he’s cheating on you – He is
You don’t feel like a priority – You’re not
He’ll leave her for you – He won’t
Things will eventually change – They won’t
ABQ’s significant other in Mayor Martin Chavez is up for an unprecedented 4th term, because he petitioned to stay with us. Like the not-so-significant other of your yesteryear who would make grand gestures, or big promises, to stay in the game, but may only come through here and there with a little weekend getaway or a fancy dinner – paltry in comparison to a partner who truly, sincerely stands by you, works to make things better for everyone around them with their selfless deeds, action and follow-through.
Will ABQ. stay with the portly spender, with stars in his eyes, who promises “visions” and grandeur, or will ABQ. collectively grow-up and into an adult relationship with a partner who goes to bat for them. If we’ve been cheated on and lied to, plied with I’m sorries or befuddled with excuses it’s probably time to move on. Kick the cad to the curb, take responsibility for yourself, do what you can do to improve ABQ. starting with a clean slate. You have to look at the facts and the record – ABQ. when it comes to Marty Chavez, He’s Just Not That Into You.

Who would’ve thought that the 2×2 mi. New Mexico town where I grew-up would be featured in a number of major motion pictures? And my now backyard has been portrayed as everything from a post-apocalyptic gateway to evil to a scenic stand point.
These mile markers and the fact that Variety is set to rank New Mexico third best in North America for film locations just behind California and New York, according to an article posted in the Chicago Tribune online where they boast of their just off the podium ranking of fourth place, cement the status of our state as having dug in our boot heel and captured the reigns of the industry.
Places everyone! New Hollywood, New Mexico, take 3 – Acción!
The dumbbell unseated local news anchor Marisa Maez as the long running #1 search on our site, let’s see if the Comfort Whip “shakes” things up again by dethroning (pun intended) the very popular Tom Joles black-eye escándalo.
Remember when Madonna, Kenny Rogers and Mickey Rourke had their original faces? Whenever I look at Madge I can’t help but wonder, “What if? What if she wasn’t wearing the vanity mask of irreparable alteration?”
The world will never know what she would have aged like naturally – or anything even remotely organically (ironic). We’re losing the faces of some of our icons to the cut, plumped, stretched, lifted and tucked facade they aim for and they’re all starting to look alike. Poor Pricilla Queen of the Dumplings may be one of the saddest examples.
It’s so refreshing to see someone like Dee Wallace – who granted may have incredible genes and could easily partake in a little Botox or collagen, but in any case you see her and it’s like, “Hey, it’s the mom from E.T.!” Her face is still hers and I wouldn’t think it induces any cringe of, “Ugh, what did she do to herself?”
Here’s hoping our generation’s applaud-able actors and actresses keep it real so that we might recognize them for their faces. I would like to think that Sandy Bullock and Reese Witherspoon will not be indiscernible above the neck in the next 20 years.
Paltrow and Alba can go vanity mask hell for all I care, but don’t blemish my Sandy.
