Have you ever ate a great taco and exclaimed, “God, it’s good Mexican food!” Well this place named themselves after that phrase–that’s right, “God It’s Good Mexican Food” is the actual name of this truck on the Northside of Tucson, AZ. And before you criticize these folks for using the Lord’s name in vain, you should watch this video. Or give their tacos a try for yourself. They’re so good you will be thanking Jesus!

Immaculate Heart Novitiate – Sisters Of The Immaculate Heart Of Mary (Tucson, AZ – 2/24/16)

Every so often I try to shoot a video somewhere in Tucson that might bring back memories to my friends or relatives who might be missing their old hometown. I’ve seen the Immaculate Heart Novitiate from a distance over these past many years but have never set foot on the grounds… until last week, when I shot this footage. I don’t know much about the place except that it is inhabited by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, located at 3820 Sabino Canyon Road, Tucson, AZ. You can see the cross high on a hill as you drive along Sabino Canyon Rd. between River and Snyder Roads. I hope those of you who have wondered what this place looks like are satisfied with this video.

I chose the reflective, contemplative song “Holy Is His Name” as the soundtrack for this video. The singer is John Michael Talbot, former guitarist of ’70s country folk-rock band Mason Profitt who left rock stardom for a life of monastic spirituality. He is founder of a monastic community called The Brothers And Sisters Of Charity.

Let The Desert Be Joyful Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus (1966)

In the fall of 1966 I was in my first year of the senior(touring) group of the Tucson Boys Chorus. We spent the summer rehearsing this music and a week at the end of October filming it at San Xavier del Bac. This 1/2 hour program was broadcast nationally on CBS that Christmas Eve at 11:30 pm, and for the next 10 years.

The crew for this CBS News special had just returned from Viet Nam. This was their “light duty” upon their return. They were skilled at shooting from a helicopter, so they did a lot of that.

We recorded all the music on the first day, to a two-track Nagra, and lip-synced for the next four days.

You will see me at age 9, Jeffrey R. Haskell, Director, and young versions of Bob Fee, Dale Gladden, Brian Whiting, Greg Hourscht, Gary Holt, Kelly Burkholder, and a number of other Tucsonans.

My mother, Phyllis Klingenfus, sewed and fit most of the costumes from a very old wardrobe.

Los Elegantes provided marvelous guitar accompaniment.

Director: Dale Chalmers.

The first Sunday service after a week of social action church members faces — from the Reverend Alison Harrington’s arrest on Monday evening in Washington, DC at an immigrant reform rally (200 were arrested, including Tucson Congressman Raul Grijalva) to Tuesday’s altercation between church members, immigration activist and Barrio Ochoa residents with Tucson Police Department and Border Patrol after a traffic stop near the church resulted in the detention of two Southside Worker Center members, and other activists. On Friday, members of the End Streamline Coalition, some affiliated with the church, along with Puente from Phoenix, and Derechas Humanos and No More Death, organized two blockades to prevent the federal court deportation proceedings of undocumented immigrants.
