By Sara Jenkins and Nick Brown [ Wed May 15 2013 3:51 PM ]

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!

By Nick Brown [ Fri Jan 18 2013 1:58 PM ]

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

By Nick Brown [ Thu Jan 17 2013 2:02 PM ]

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 voiceand 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

By Nick Brown [ Wed Jan 16 2013 11:13 AM ]

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.

By Nick Brown [ Thu Aug 16 2012 3:30 PM ]

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.

By Nick Brown [ Thu Apr 26 2012 9:13 PM ]

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.

By Nick Brown [ Fri Jan 27 2012 4:14 PM ]

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.

Joss Whedon went to the Alibi's Spring Social

By Marisa Demarco [ Sat Apr 23 2011 2:51 PM ]

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.
