Welcome to the Jungle
You're in the jungle, baby. Election time may fill you with dread, but we've bushwhacked our way through the overgrowth of campaign confusion with our gleaming Alibi Machete of Truth. Wanna vote early? We'll tell you how. Not sure what a Land Commissioner is, much less who to vote for? We do. Watch it bring you to your shun na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na knees, knees!

FILM & TV
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Alibi reviewer Devin D. O'Leary thinks Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is crude, unfunny and offensive. Which means you'll probably pee yourself laughing, if you go for that sort of thing.

Sign of the times: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

Each week we reward one passionate Alibi reader-slash-Instagrammer with $10 in Alibi Bucks. Alibi Bucks can help you get anything from tickets to Naked Food Fair to a sandwich at Cafe Lush and each week we have new deals to spend your bucks on.

This week we asked you to tag us in pictures of your favorite Albuquerque signs and you posted some pretty killer retro signs.

Our second runner up, gq.ninja posted this awesome old school KOB sign. The vintage simplicity is really a sign of the times and we love the bare tree branches in the distance. Thanks for posting!

This week's winner is lettersfromburque's gorgeous picture of the Helen's Bakery sign. We love the backdrop of our dreamy Albuquerque skies and the vibrant turquoise cross against the weathered white wooden sign. Thank you for posting! To collect your prize and Alibi Bucks email Amelia@alibi.com.

Stay tuned for next week's guidelines and if you don't already, follow us on Instagram!
