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.
Happy Birthday, Joanna Newsom!
Let’s listen to “The Sprout and the Bean.” Joanna’s voice seems to have a polarizing effect on people. Consider me polarized. This song leaves me speechless every time.
Happy Birthday, Shari Lewis
Even as a child I never understood the appeal of Shari Lewis, or even what she was up to in the most general sense. It’s true you could barely see her lips move, but there was never any question in my mind that she was just talking to herself in a funny voice—and rarely about anything I could focus on for more than a few seconds. She’s uncomfortable for children of all ages. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday, Ronnie Milsap
Back in 1984, blind country-western crooner Ronnie Milsap released this rocking crossover hit, “She Loves My Car,” with some surprising support from Exene Cervenka and John Doe of the band X. It seemed unusually edgy and tuneful for Milsap back then, and it still holds up pretty well. The video also features a young and early appearance by “Law and Order” star Mariska Hargitay.
TJ Trout caught a trout.
For several million years, 94 Rock’s TJ Trout ruled the radio airwaves with razor sharp teeth, abrasive skin and the ability to swim while sleeping. I sat in on his show a few times. It probably sounded like fun in Radio Land, but TJ was deadly serious in the control room and could shoot a panic-inducing glare, even while making laughter noises.
William Devane loves only gold. Enter his web of sin.
Crackpot Hollywood has-been William Devane wants me to buy gold as a hedge against impending global collapse. He also loves to run his fingers through piles of gold coins like an evil cartoon king in the treasure room. It’s troublesome to think how dangerously gold crazy he might become. I imagine him burying chests of gold in his back yard so Randy Quaid can’t get them. All transactions not satisfied in pure gold should expect a hearty “Good day to you sir” from veteran actor William Devane. Maybe he’s just acting, I dunno. He sure seems to like gold.
Hideous alien creature Fran Drescher thinks she was abducted by hideous alien creatures.
Honking celebrity gorgon Fran Drescher now makes claims of alien abduction. In screeching hag-like tones, she maintains aliens stuck a chip, possibly a Funyun, in her lotion-slimed hand. The alien chip programmed her to forever speak like a cartoon goose and marry her now gay ex-husband, fellow abductee Peter Marc Jacobson. Jacobson denies having an alien chip himself, even if it could explain why he married Fran Drescher. The aliens now insist Fran Drescher abducted them, though it’s not really a question of just wanting off the spaceship worse. Next time our Nanny gets abducted we can only hope she stays that way.
James Arness a.k.a. Marshall Matt Dillon is dead.

Joss Whedon went to the Alibi's Spring Social
I get a little starstruck about writers.
Joss Whedon has dreamed up some of my favorite characters on TV, in movies and in comics. He's most well-known for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and "Angel" and "Firefly." Whedon also did "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" with Albuquerque's own Neil Patrick Harris, and the comic "Fray." He's in town directing The Avengers.
Happy birthday, William Shatner.
I know you’ve seen it before. Watch it again.
