In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so
devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive
in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the
Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills,
training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a

the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their
self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey
that challenges his unorthodox parenting.

*** FOR NEW MEXICO RESIDENTS ONLY *** SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY ***
Never say die to the folks behind the upcoming Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest. Like the Kingpin and his devoted protégé, Miguel Jaramillo and Jennie Rexer are on a quest, a quest to bring the Breaking Bad universe what it truly needs to thrive – and that is a place to convene, revel and rejoice in all the splendor that is Breaking Bad mania.
And unlike any old venue or setting that may house masses for weekend or week-long festivities, such as Star-trek conventions, or general comic festivals, the ALBUQUERQUE BREAKING BAD FAN FEST will take place in the home of Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece.
That’s right, the happy accident that led to Albuquerque becoming a “central character” in the show, leads all roads back to the ultimate Breaking Bad mecca – the only place in the world where tourists from all over the globe can regularly be seen snapping pics at the John B. Robert dam, sitting in a booth at Twisters, in front of Octopus Car Wash, in front of the “White House”, even touring around the city just like the stars!
Come November 2014 these “Baddies” and many more can make the most out of their fandom at the ultimate “on location” fan fest.
“We’re happy to announce plans for an Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest are moving forward! We were unable to reach our Kickstarter goal, but the Fest will go on! Please stay tuned for more info on this page and www.ABQBreakingBadFest.com. Save the date: November 7th & 8th, 2014!”
-Jennie and Miguel
…will be starting a new project in Albuquerque at the end of July.

“Looking forward to working with our awesome NM Talent again soon!” -OLC

PAID CANVASSING POSITIONS AVAILABLE
Work starts immediately. Flexible day/evening hours.
Canvassers are needed to gather signatures for marijuana decriminalization campaigns in ABQ and Santa Fe.
After completing a brief training and background check, canvassers will work with a team leader to target public events, high-traffic areas and targeted neighborhoods to gather signatures to put marijuana decriminalization ordinances on the November ballot in both cities.
Paid at $1/signature. Minimum 4 hours of work per day. Canvassers average over 100 signatures per day – can you do better?
Contact Rachael at ProgressNowNM for more info about work in ABQ and Santa Fe.
This Blogette says, don’t cry Burqueños! I see the writing on the Facebook wall just like you and it stings a little, but wait! Filming location and setting are oft two very different animals. Am I right, or am I right, or am I right?
Believe it or not New Mexico has played stand-in for such exotic locales as Egypt, Cali, Wyoming, Mexico, other worlds, other galaxies and yes even the East Coast…perhaps you’re familiar with the story of a mad chemistry teacher who made his way all the way to New Hampshire to escape his drug dealing comeuppance. And that my friends was all filmed right here in New Mexico.
So take heart #NM, come November New Mexico WILL hit the small screen again in Better Call Saul – under the talented hand of Sir Odenkirk, led by Masters Gilligan and Gould, for most if not all of its filming. Now the only other devastating turn of events, besides leaving NM to shoot would be if “Lynette” doesn’t land a role:
p.s. OHI has confirmed with sources within the production that NM is the only location on the shooting schedule for now…
The Night Shift premiered on NBC Tues. night!!!
BIG CONGRATS TO NM TALENT Catharine Pilafas, Jackamoe Buzzell, Frank Sandoval, Alma Sisneros, Marc Comstock, Jim Burleson and stunt woman Rebecca Hill Casey!! Many more to follow…
