Weekly Alibi
 Dec 6 - 12, 2007 
How did we become a nation of debtors? How can we find our way out? UNM Professor Nathalie Martin gives us the secret.
Small Change
Financial advice on credit and debt from UNM finance professor Emmanuel Morales-Camargo.
NEWS/OPINION
The city gets its hands on Pornotopia. Richardson won't take the Political Courage Test. It's the 10th anniversary of the Kyoto Accord, so how's your thermometer lately?
Websclusive: Draw The Body On The Dick Knipfing
See the winning entry and a selection of our favorite runners-up.
MUSIC
Mei Long celebrates electricity—and the release of a CD. Wallow in the absorbing melancholy that is Iron & Wine. The women of Suspended are all under 5-foot-1, but that doesn't mean they can't punch you in the neck.
FOOD
Warm up at Lee's Bakery, a Vietnamese shop of sandwiches and coconut-based desserts. Plus, learn how to shop for the best gift bestowed on casual acquaintances: wine.
FILM & TV
Maybe it's time to ignore TV and surf the Interwebs for quality comedy. Then dip into the simmering pot of Freudian psycho-sexual repression that is Guy Maddin's mad vision.
ARTS/LIT
You're not done with Vietnam novels; Tree of Smoke would be plenty comfortable on a shelf next to Tim O'Brien.

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!
