Get Help Moving from the New Mexico Lottery

Are you planning on moving to a new apartment? If so, Sergio Gutierrez just won a new truck. He won it with a $3 “Bucks & Trucks” scratcher he bought at an Allsup’s in Santa Fe because his wife didn’t pack him a lunch (again). Sergio is reportedly so happy he could cry, but is aware of the social taboos against it.

This is not to say that Sergio is volunteering to help you move, either. I’m just saying he won a truck, so if you know him … it wouldn’t hurt to ask. If he says no, you can always try to win a truck yourself. Also, I have a kid at UNM, so I think scratchers are cool. Everybody buy scratchers.

Cryptid Alert

Cryptid Alert! View rare film footage of a Great Emancipator.

Though most people generally accept the existence of Abraham Lincolns as fact, there has been very little scientific proof (beyond photographs, eyewitness accounts, etc.) to confirm it. Until now. This newly uncovered film footage of a Lincoln in its natural habitat provides perhaps the most compelling evidence of their existence to date. If you see one of these in the woods, don’t shoot it. Yes, I’m looking at you, Mr. Booth.

Celebrity b.s.

Two of New Mexico's Youth Volunteers are honored with a warm, sweaty handshake from Kevin Spacey.

On May 5th, two New Mexico students received awards for their volunteer services. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards gave Brianna Swinderman, from Rio Rancho, and Joseph Lee Estrada, from Velarde, titles as New Mexico's top youth volunteers for 2013 and as State Honorees.

A judging panel reviewed 5000 Local Honorees, and selected 102 to receive State Honorees titles. The panel chose these Honorees based on their personal growth, initiatives, impacts, and efforts.

State Honorees received $1000 dollars, silver medallions, and paid trips to Washington, D.C. for national recognition events. They also attended a gala awards ceremony at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, visited congressional representatives, and met the top youth volunteers from around the world.

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards recognized ten of the State Honorees as National Honorees who received gold medallions, crystal trophies, additional $5000 awards, and $5000 grants, from The Prudential Foundation, that went to nonprofit, aid-giving organizations that the Honorees chose.

[Additional commentary from Nick Brown: What Sara failed to mention was that these teenagers got to shake hands with major Hollywood movie star Kevin Spacey. Spacey, you’ll notice from the photo, is even wearing a suit for the ceremony—it’s not like he just walked up there in a bathrobe and a bag of chips, demanding a $2,500 check. He took this thing seriously.

It reminds me of the time I got straight A’s in school; my parents were so pleased they hired Lee Majors to come to our house and congratulate me in person. Of course that never happened, and I never got straight A’s, either, but the story puts some perspective on how these kids must have felt shaking hands with Kevin Spacey. Spacey also recently photobombed a woman in Boston.]

Music

Glitterdick’s lost singer has been found.

Yesterday, Glitterdick drummer Suzi alerted music fans on the web that the band had neither seen nor heard from singer Kendoll Killjoy (a.k.a. Kendal Fortson) for over a month following the Albuquerque-based band’s return from their West Coast tour. We’re pleased to report that Suzi has just received contact from Kendoll, and he is fine. He just wasn’t checking his email. Suzi writes:

CALL OFF THE SEARCH. I just got an email from Kendal. He is apparently "bummin around on the road," and finally checked his email. Thank you to everyone who put the word out, and we are all truly sorry for the unnecessary panic. Please pass the message on.
