What was the stinkiest national journalism of 2005? Check out this week's feature, also known as Stinksville, to find out.
Year in Music
Time to cash your Christmas checks and go to your favorite local record store, because we're laying out the best, worst and best/worst albums of the year.
The Year in Food
Newsflash: You are fat. Welcome to a new food pyramid design that will get your sedentary asses into awesome shape. Plus, trans-fat labels, the New Orleans food industry, the death of Atkins, the Cookie Monster's cookies, Martha Stewart's favorite color, interstate wine commerce and more!
What was 2005's role in the history of cinema? A bunch of crap and consequently, less profit. But were there at least a few good eggs? Devin D. O'Leary says "yes," but only a handful (not a whole basket).
The World at Your Feet
Start your year the Tricklock way with the Tricentennial version of the International Revolutions Theatre Festival. The event will appeal to both "Masterpiece Theatre" snoots and the nickel-seat crowd.

AJ Woods Cassette Release Venue Change
Tortuga Gallery Tonight!
Last minute change of venue for AJ Woods' tape release, the fourth location change for this show. Because AJ is willing to tempt fate with the audacity of Hercules, he is now also bringing a bag of black cats to dump in front of his path to the stage.
The previous location, published in this week's Alibi with an enthusiastic review of AJ's latest collection of dark folk-rock, had its electricity cut. Show up instead at Tortuga Gallery, 901 Edith SE for the same excellent opening acts: Javelina, San Diego's Labs and Julie Byrne from Seattle. If you like dark American folk-rock, this is the ticket.
