The Lost Blogs
With a quick 500 word essay and the generous folks at the Alibi, I was thrown into a whirlwind of music and V.I.P. access. I was able to talk to bands, take pictures anywhere, and obtain inside information about parties and the underground secrets of SXSW. Let's not forget to mention free magazines, CDs, tickets and other glamorous things.

An Interview with a Patriot
After the sleep deprivation started to wear off, I caught up with Megan Mcgaughy and John Brophy of The Gingerbread Patriots at a Sunday afternoon house partyócomplete with cardboard floors, a keg in the corner and a performance by New Zealand's Ryan McPhun and the Ruby Suns. I cornered John and Megan in the back room to ask them a few questions about SXSW, only to discover their plans for relocation.

Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used to Be

September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen

Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler

Will you ever look back on right now with longing? When Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler left Burque for San Francisco in 2011, the couple—longtime performance collaborators—found themselves unexpectedly thrown out of sync as they tried to stay afloat in the pricey, tech-obsessed city. “We both had jobs that put us in front of computers most of the day,” says Wright, “and then had phones that we looked at on the way home, and then computers we could get in front of for the evening.”

Their burgeoning disconnection ultimately led to a new act that incorporated dance, physical theater and poetic narrative into absurdist vignettes about memory and togetherness. “We began to imagine having a sense of nostalgia, in the future, for all of the things as they are now—smartphones, Facebook, Buzzfeed, apps, etc.,” Wright says. September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen captures real and imagined eras in a couple’s lifespan, and “gluing it all together is the outline of a love story.” The show comes to the Box (100 Gold SW) on Saturday, Aug. 2, at 10:30pm, and Sunday, Aug. 3, at 7:30pm.

The Daily Word in mole man invasions, pot blocking and lame witchcraft

The Daily Word

Well, kids, let’s see what’s going on in the news today:

The city of Albuquerque has decided that supporters of a marijuana decriminalization measure need to have more signatures on their petition than the city had originally told them. OOPS. Too bad the deadline was Monday. And no, they don’t get an extension.

Murderers of a retired educator in Chimayo claim to have held a ‘witchcraft’ ceremony after the killing. Which sounds super creepy, but apparently only involved "wrapping a ribbon in something and putting it in a baggie." I guess it's creepy if the 'something' was an eyeball. But way less creepy if the 'something' was a, I dunno, pencil. Basically, my feelings about this story are dependent on what got wrapped in a ribbon and then put into a baggie.

An Albuquerque man tried to stretch the family food budget by killing, then butchering the family dog. Which was a chihuahua, by the way, which could feed maybe one person? I don't think this guy thought things through.

And the Duke City is due to become the Cake City this weekend. Cake kind of sounds like Duke and it’s the best I could come up with before my coffee hits bottom. Also, I’m still thinking about that witchcraft thing. And the pot thing. And the dog thing. Is there something wrong with the state this week?

A team of surgeons removed 232 teeth from the mouth of a 17-year old boy in India.

Two more mysterious holes leading to the blackest depths of the Earth have opened up in Siberia. Scientists think it’s happening because of an eruption of gas, but the Internet thinks it’s probably mole men.

And Harrison Ford’s ankle injury is probably going to prevent puffins from having sex. Dammit, Harrison Ford. First Indy 4 and now this?
