Abandoned Bowling Alley Turns Into An Immersive Public Art Experience 

What a time to be alive. The former Silva Lanes Bowling Alley in Santa Fe is now the “House of Eternal Return” - a trippy Victorian house built to scale inside the bowling alley by pioneering art collective, Meow Wolf.

There aren’t a ton of plants in the Bisti Badlands, and the starkness is part of what makes the area so otherworldly.  But when we visited the first week of April, I saw these small, sparkly plants that I’ve never seen before. 

There were hundreds of them growing in cracks in the mud, and at first glance they seemed almost metallic.  But when I took a closer look at the leaves, the texture was more like tiny jewels. 


Hey film fans and NM history fans, here’s an upcoming event –

Free archival film screening: “Glimpses of 1920s New Mexico”
6 - 7:30 pm, Thursday, Oct. 6, at The Screen

They’ll be showing four films: two 1929 films made by W.W. Howells, nephew of Amelia White and Elizabeth White, and two earlier films produced by SAR. The films include footage of northern New Mexico Pueblos, pre-historic ruins, the White sister’s home, and scenes of the Santa Fe Fiesta. Maria and Julian Martinez of San Ildefonso Pueblo are featured in a film on pottery making.

The event is sponsored by the State Archives of New Mexico (New Mexico State Commission of Public Records) and the School for Advanced Research (SAR). Nancy Owen Lewis will provide commentary and historical context. The two Howells films were recently preserved with a National Film Preservation Foundation grant to the State Archives.

October is American Archives Month, showcasing the value of archives and archival collections. For questions about this event, call The State Archives at 505-476-7948.


Clinton currently has 1,807 pledged delegates who are pledged and an assumed 548 superdelegates. If the superdelegates stay with her, she would be at 2,313. Sanders has 1,517 pledged delegates and 46 assumed superdelegates, for a total of 1,563. The media has been saying that they will deem the democratic nominee after NJ’s votes are in Tuesday. This is not accurate of the facts.

The majority of the media is forgetting to mention that Clinton and Sanders are 290 delegates separating them because superdelegates are assumed, not fact.

Pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today’s California Presidential Primary. Your vote determines the pledged delegates.

Tuesday, June 7th, is a huge primary day.


California – 475 pledge delegates, 73 superdelegates.
Montana – 21 pledge delegates, 6 superdelegates
North Dakota – 18 pledge delegates, 5 superdelegates
New Jersey – 126 pledge delegates, 12 superdelegates.
New Mexico – 34 pledge delegates, 9 superdelegates
South Dakota – 20 pledge delegates, 5 superdelegates

Your vote matters and your voice matters. 

New Mexico scientist builds carbon dating machine that does not damage artifacts
Marvin Rowe’s machine can accurately date even tiny artifacts without damaging them
By T. S. Last | Journal Staff Writer

“The process is important because, unlike other methods of radiocarbon dating that destroy the sample being tested, LEPRS preserves it. It also works on tiny samples – even a flake of ink or paint – and is considered a more accurate means of dating.”
