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.

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.
