Kinky Curiosities Party February 13th!

Leather and Lace

By Julan Wolf [ Wed Feb 8 2017 9:15 AM ]

Kinky Curiosities is more than just a reveal and a show, we're also hosting community tables and we have a contingent from the Leather community!

New Mexico has a long history of titleholders to represent the Leather community, and one of our current titles is Corazon Leather, which happens annually at the Leather Fiesta conference. This year, Catherine and Jinx the Lynx are serving as Ms Corazon Leather 2016! Be sure to stop by and say hello. They'll be hosting a table where they can answer questions, and they'll have tickets to upcoming events and wares to delight you. They're also sharing space with Bootblack Dani, who will be available to shine your shoes, boots, leather corsets and more —bring money to tip the performers and your bootblack!

Catherine has been an enthusiastic member of the New Mexico community volunteering at various events and using her skills as a pole dancer to raise money for various causes for several years. Early in 2016 she started Twizted Wax Works and began producing wax play candles in a variety of intensities, she applies her familiarity with wax play to teach popular hands-on as well as purely informational classes. In the coming year, Catherine is looking forward to growing her business and expanding on her knowledge of all things kinky as she travels the country while serving as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016.

Jinx the Lynx has been playing, working and volunteering in the New Mexico community for years. She gives most of her time to a local non-profit Bully-type dog breed advocacy group that raises money for rescues and shelters in need across the state. She has used her silver tongue to talk money out of people's wallets and purses for various fundraisers in the kinky and vanilla community over the years. When not volunteering, she can be found reading and rescuing animals. Jinx teaches various classes and lectures on topics both kinky and vanilla. She is the current stand-in facilitator of education at the Wet Munch and a First Aid/CPR/AED instructor. Her favorite thing is bloodsport, but don't worry, she's not hunting Monday. In the coming year, Jinx wishes to raise money to better her local community by providing funds for non-profit groups and she plans to continue to serve as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016 for the rest of her life.

New Mexico is also home to the Albuquerque Leather Daddys, a local group of Leather enthusiasts who host a monthly Gear Night the first Saturday of every month at Sidewinders Bar. What's Gear Night? It's a theme night for you to wear your favorite fetish-wear, have a few drinks amid other hot folks, maybe watch some demos (I tied some decorative bondage on a very handsome muscle bear after the Jock Strap Contest which was, in fact, a bunch of hot people on stage stripping down to their jocks while the crowd went crazy), get your boots shined and dance to an eclectic mix from the resident (award winning) DJ. Every year they do fundraisers for folks like Casa Q (a great local charity) and usually enjoy a ruckus entry in the Albuquerque Pride Parade. One of the founders of the Albuquerque Leather Daddys was the first Rio Grande Leather Titleholder with yours truly back in 2004, and we still enjoy working together. The Daddys will be hosting a table and offering us two live kink demos at Kinky Curiosities.

Oh what wonders await you next Monday! Buy your tickets now, invite your friends, get yourself a date or three. We'll be announcing drink specials and the rest of our cast and crew of curiosities this week, so stay tuned. RSVP on Facebook, on Fetlife (for those already in the know.) Cameras and phones are allowed at the event so feel free to Tweet and post to Instagram with the hashtag #AlibiFetishEvents.

The Daily Word in more Trump horse sheet, legalizing cannabis in New Mexico and a meteor

Just one meteor but a dandy one

By Geoffrey Plant [ Tue Feb 7 2017 9:43 AM ]
The Daily Word

While unlikely to happen soon, legal recreational cannabis use is closer than ever to becoming reality in New Mexico.

Fat lady who fell in comical fashion while riding a scooter and shopping for gallons of soda pop in a Walmart is speaking out about how everyone is laughing at her and it isn't funny.

President Trump wants you to know that there are thousands of terrorist attacks killing innocent midwest farmers and average Euro Svens news of which is being suppressed by evil media companies. Like Weekly Alibi, for instance. We could have reported on the briefcase nuke that destroyed UNM's Valencia campus, but rah rah terrorism (raspberry sound).

There isn't any actual skateboarding but still, this Russian skater is pretty damn high up in the air on the edge of a skyscraper, uh ... with his skateboard.

A spectacular meteor zoomed across a pile of states and part of Canada Monday morning.

Finally we may rest assured that huge amounts of LSD will not "fry" your brain and turn it into swiss cheese on a stale Trisket. You might develop a mental problem tho but that's different.

Let us all—all of us adults—enjoy Alistair Crowley's completely obscene 666 word poem about his girlfriend, who, in a tamer moment, he once compared to a hoover vacuum.

Here for your further enjoyment or, maybe, just to induce uncontrollable rage, is every tweet Trump has tweeted in the time he has had the POTUS Twitter account!

The Daily Word in Ancestors, Serpents and the Woolies

By Joshua Lee [ Sat Feb 4 2017 8:53 AM ]
The Daily Word

A family in Abilene, TX found a rattlesnake in their toilet. Just to be safe, they checked under the house and found 23 more! Oh Jesus on a hotplate, that gives me the woolies something fierce.

Remember that creepy four-legged robot that Boston Dynamics made a few years back? Well, now they've added wheels and more functionality. Check out the leaked video, in which the founder of the company calls the robot "nightmare-inducing." Yeah, no kidding.

Archaeology find of the year: 12,000-year-old remains of a man with huge prostate stones in the Sudan. We're talking about the size of a walnut, here!

Um. I don't want to think of the implications involved in this study. It shows that corn-based diets low in vitamin B3 will make hamsters eat their young.

Tell your friends to move here if they want to escape the dust mite scourge. The coasts are infested with them because they need humidity to survive. Ugh. I could've lived without seeing the microscopic images.

Creepin' crawlers! What a shit day to look at the internet. This snake learned a new trick to lure prey: wagging it's tongue back and forth.

The oldest known relative of human beings was a millimeter long sea creature that didn't have an anus. (Pfft. Maybe yours, bro.) Why is there an artist's rendition? That's it, dammit. I'm done here.
