Because of the holidays, a touch of sickness, general busyness and a soupçon of laziness…posts may be flowing even slower than usual here.
But I am maintaining the effort
addiction to the social net. So, between Christmas vacation funnery, recuperating and deleting gratuitous duckface and/or T-n-A and/or muscle flexing, bathroom self portrait offenders from my friends list…
What’s goin’ on with YOU people?

Just in time for post Mother’s Day goodness, budding actor, NM res., über muscle man David Robbins recently shot over this lovely lil’ Thank You Note much to the delight of the cockles of my heart!
Feedback of such sweetness and light are the very reason I maintain this here ‘dot’ on the www with the support of my team, internal and ex (wink)!
As the ‘mother’ of this cyber spot it’s my goal to feature the people and opportunities of my favorite state, so when Nuevo Mexicans (and beyond) make a connection, get a part, warm a heart, inspire and get inspired it’s my privilege to bear witness and calling to report!
I love it here and I love the people I get to meet virtually and IRL!
So, up until and beyond the point in time when a manuscript, screenplay eh hmm, or treatment of mine finally hits the buying price of my dreams, I’ll still plug away at the research, fake reporting, innocent gossiping, and broadcasting I’ve come to love – I’ll just get to do it wearing better slippers.
THANK YOU! Thanks to every industry contributor, reader, actor, artist, activist and friend for being a part of what drives a shared passion for focusing on New Mexico Talent – the greatest thing since green chile!
In the immortal words of Ray Charles via Jamie Foxx, “Yeah, yeah, I’m gonna make it do what it do, baby.”
Keep it here and tell yo’ friends…so much more to come on the exploits of Mr. Robbins and the many, many, many locals shaking things-up!
When you need a beat and you’re not in a dirrty verse or bubble-gum pop kind of a mood, NM’s Own Young Dy-lan is at the mic – catch him.
On our last visit to the home of late night entertainment at its best we were enamored with all the guests, delighted by our faithful host and of course relished the reliable perfection of the house band…
And at this particular taping of The After After Party we were floored by the gripping performance of this youngin who had ‘real-deal’ written all over his rhymes.
Click the pic above to get to Dy-lan’s brand new Facebook page and hear directly from the soft spoken rapper here in a quick interview he granted OneHeadlightInk.com.
This ABQ native is sure to strike out into stardom, he’s got the goods. Let’s back him and his team at Royalty Life Records.
From taking the crown at Battle of the Schools, to his upcoming first ever broadcast performance, right up to the highest heights son can reach; driven by his given talent, passion & drive, let’s let him know that his home team is right here behind him!
From the artist:
I didn’t think I would ever be a Hip-hop artist until I was in the studio for the first time. It really changed my life. There is a certain sense of control that I feel whenever I walk into the recording booth. It’s the best feeling I know.
Everyone uses their abilities in order to get where they want to be in life. I use my mind and my words to do so. However, my ambitions are not those of your ordinary “rapper.”
I’ve watched the evolution of Hip-hop throughout my life. I see how many people view Hip-hop as senseless and somewhat unintelligent. These people do not understand what Hip-hop is supposed to be. I admit that there are some artists now who do fit these descriptions and are classified under the genre of Hip-hop, but the art of this music in not gone.
When you listen to music from legends of Hip-hop such as Nas, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., and more, you find intelligence. You find meaning. You find skill. These are the artists which I draw my inspiration from. I feel sometimes that many artists today do not get the amount of recognition they deserve.
I want to show people that when you let true Hip-hop and true lyricism have its place you realize what this music truly is, that it does have meaning, and that it can be intelligent. -Young Dy-lan
