Weekly Alibi
 Feb 21 - 27, 2008 
With the Writers Guild strike finally over, it's time to roll out the red carpet for the Academy Awards. We look at the damage done by the strike and take a look at the films fighting for Mr. Oscar.
NEWS/OPINION
The Alibi has had it up to here with unproductive Legislative Sessions. We look at the bills that could have been as well as a few that actually made it to the governor's desk. Plus, the media's role in mass shootings.
MUSIC
Bud Melvin shows South by Southwest what a banjo and a Game Boy can do while Colourmusic gets inspiration from its namesake. Plus, spend your Sundays at the Church of Beethoven.
FOOD
Jasmine Thai and Sushi House brings tears of joy to our eyes. And find the best places to grab a bite before catching a flick.
FILM & TV
Albuquerque author Steven Gould tells us what it was like to watch his novel Jumper morph into a multimillion-dollar film. And Vantage Point is the latest movie to rip off Akira Kurosawa’s vision.
Websclusive: Definitely, Maybe
Definitely, Maybe paints an honest, if slightly skewed picture of love and romance.
Websclusive: Big-Screen Jumper
Read an extended version of our interview with Steven Gould.
ARTS/LIT
Madagascar braids history, fantasy and deception into a narrative strand that will rope in playgoers. And Kurt Vonnegut meets Philip Roth in Dagoberto Gilb's new book, The Flowers.

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