The Daily Word in voting, cruelty and Gareth Pugh

The Daily Word

It's time to rock the Bernalillo County vote, y'all. Peruse the 2014 Alibi Election Guide to learn more about key races and for translations of ballot-speak on advisory questions and constitutional amendments. Contrary to propaganda that voting doesn't matter, it totally does. And local and state elections are a way to make a real positive impact on our community. And you know you want a sticker. So vote early through Saturday, Nov. 1, or rock the ballot on Election Day proper.

Burque is one of only two cities nationwide recognized as an Urban Bird Treaty City, y'all. Translation: Our burg is for the birds ... in a good way.

A motion to dismiss charges against three teens charged with beating two Native homeless men to death in the South Valley was denied.

A man suspected of committing a string of home invasions of elderly women in southeast Albuquerque was arrested by SWAT.

A deer jumped in front of a motorcycle. The bike is totaled, the deer is dead and the biker? He's fine ... and headed back to work as a zookeeper.

Chronic fatigue syndrome patients, it's all in your head ... specifically your brain.

I'm not a huge fan of the fashion-industrial complex. But Gareth Pugh's Spring 2015 Read-to-Wear line is blowing my occult-obsessed mind ATM. Get your costume inspiration on, y'all.

The Daily Word in oh my god, ghosts are real!

The Daily Word

Some sort of “wizard or spirit” showed up at the burning of El Kookooee last weekend. “It’s either a real humanoid figure up there hovering in the sky or it’s an extremely good projection from either a slide or some kind of camera,” said a ‘ghost enthusiast.’

A representative of a local haunted house attraction is on camera admitting that their brand of fright includes sexual assault, and also that they don’t do background checks on their professional gropers. Scary! But not in a fun way. More in an "actually committing sexual crimes" way.

What parts of New Mexico are haunted? Pretty much all of them, accordion to this website!

Allegedly ghost-infested asylum ruin still not torn down, probably won’t be torn down any time soon.

One thing I never could stomach about living in Houston: all the damn vampires.

A real estate firm has mapped out which cities are the worst for surviving a zombie uprising. Ha, suck it El Paso!

And France is apparently crawling with evil clowns.
