Weekly Alibi
 Sep 20 - 26, 2007 
From the first sassy 12-page black-and-white issue in 1992 to this week's 72-page behemoth, the Alibi's been putting type to page for 15 years. We've got our dress all laid out for our Quinceañera. Say goodbye to Editor Steven Robert Allen as he joins the ranks of other former staffers in our "Where Are They Now?"
NEWS/OPINION
The Church of Scientology sets its sights on a big building Downtown. Only dirt stands between Albuquerque and radioactive waste. (P.S. Your regularly scheduled letters section will return next week. Peruse the Hall of Fame here instead.)
MUSIC
A festival of discovery! The third-annual ¡Globalquerque! lets you travel without discomfort or much of a budget. Plus, the songwriter from The New Pornographers spills his guts.
FOOD
There's something to be said for a little old-school kindness and top-notch customer service, like the kind you'll find at Oak Tree Café.
FILM & TV
Shot in New Mexico, In the Valley of Elah starring Tommy Lee Jones, is a war-weary mystery sure to stir up controversy.
ARTS/LIT
Ah, art photography, the tacit way for aristocrats to look at naked people. Twenty photographers examine Rose in 1x20 at the Downtown Contemporary Arts Center.

RSSRaw posts and updates from our writers with info too timely or uncategorizable for print. What, we said something stupid? Chime in, buddy.

The Daily Word in oh my god, ghosts are real!

The Daily Word

Some sort of “wizard or spirit” showed up at the burning of El Kookooee last weekend. “It’s either a real humanoid figure up there hovering in the sky or it’s an extremely good projection from either a slide or some kind of camera,” said a ‘ghost enthusiast.’

A representative of a local haunted house attraction is on camera admitting that their brand of fright includes sexual assault, and also that they don’t do background checks on their professional gropers. Scary! But not in a fun way. More in an "actually committing sexual crimes" way.

What parts of New Mexico are haunted? Pretty much all of them, accordion to this website!

Allegedly ghost-infested asylum ruin still not torn down, probably won’t be torn down any time soon.

One thing I never could stomach about living in Houston: all the damn vampires.

A real estate firm has mapped out which cities are the worst for surviving a zombie uprising. Ha, suck it El Paso!

And France is apparently crawling with evil clowns.
