Olivia Gatwood (in white) is from Albuquerque. I beat her in a slam one time. She beat me in every other slam we were both in. She’s great and lovely and stretches wherever she is before performing and sometimes I try to imagine myself a little like her before I perform cause that’s just how great she is.

Here is a little food for thought

So we are all upset about Ferguson.
Understandable.

Before Ferguson, there was Albuquerque.

WHICH NO ONE CARES ABOUT.

This is the biggest issue that Albuquerque still deals with today.
Cops aren’t just racially profiling their victims, but they are also destroying this city. Here, it does not matter what race you are, but rather, if you are alive.

But hey, we are Albuquerque, New Mexico, no one cares about us. People only care that we have blue meth.

Here are some photos of tear gas being launched not only before 9 pm but! a block away from the University of New Mexico. The most condensed area of Albuquerque. Thousands of students live within a block of this street.

So please remember this is no battle. This is war.

Where is justice for Burque?

Grim Reaper Haunts Albuquerque Cemetery

A local cemetery in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has become the haunting grounds for a mysterious man dressed like the Grim Reaper.

The man first showed up at the San Jose del El Rosario Cemetery last month wearing a black cloak over a white dress. His face was covered and he occasionally carried a bouquet of flowers that looked as if they’d been plucked from a nearby field, KRQE TV reports.

The strange figure disappeared, only to show up again this weekend and consent to an interview with the station.

The mysterious man says his name is the “Light Wanderer” and that he comes to the cemetery to pray.

“There is a place where sleepers sleep and dreamers dream and patiently await,” he told the station, adding that people shouldn’t fear him.

“There’s nothing to be afraid of except those who seek to cause harm, pain, destruction,” he said.
