Fourth of July Alibi Distribution
You can't ride public transportation, but you may read this NuCity Publication
In order to give New Mexicans enough free time to properly celebrate America's independence from Britain by drinking, shooting guns, and lighting things on fire, all government institutions and many businesses are closed on Wednesday July Fourth. The offices of Weekly Alibi are closed... except the Circulation Department. We don't take holidays.
While the majority of this week's distribution will take place on Thursday the Fifth, readers will be able to find fresh, crisp copies of the latest Weekly Alibi at select locations. Here is a selection of places to go tomorrow when you absolutely must have i.27 of the Alibi, featuring interviews with former New Mexico Governor and current third-party presidential candidate Gary Johnson:
Frontier, Whole Foods, UNMH, Mannies, Isleta Lakes Bait shop, Defined Fitnesses, The Range Cafes in Albuquerque. Many of our boxes along Central Ave. in Nob Hill and Downtown will be stocked on Wednesday July Fourth as well. Those include boxes in front of the Albuquerque Transportation Center, Flying Star #1, Century 14 Theater and, of course, the former Report Station art-box in front of Weekly Alibi's offices. -On that note, the deadline for submitting your idea for transforming an Alibi newspaper box into something beautiful, scary or otherwise is July 19th.

Concerned Dads and Robot Jams
Now with 50 percent more tracks!
Happy Tuesday Report Station fans. These are more tracks that came off the phone’s voicemail, not the Alibi’s. Again, this means these people were called from the phone booth and are calling the number back.

Hello, Hello? Hello!? Alternative Lifestyles and “Woooooo!”
Four little gems from our favorite social experiment. The angle with these recordings is that they were left on the phone’s own voicemail. This is a number that someone would have only after having been called from the phone. Check out the surreal storytelling in the last track. These guys are in deep.

Report Station recordings: happy birthdays, Alibi love and touching yourself
Here are three new ones from the Report Station’s early days:
Bullies Bash the Telephone Art Box
Quit it you hooligans!
When the idea of asking artists to create new distribution boxes for the Alibi first started getting kicked around the office, a lot of people had the opinion that the boxes would be immediately vandalized. As finished boxes started coming in, and many were more intricate and beautiful than we could have imagined, talk around the water cooler was that they were just begging to be destroyed.
I wanted to have faith in humanity. Several of us on the opposing team defended the faceless masses of Albuquerque, saying surely someone wouldn’t break or batter a piece of art. The imaginary perp would see how much care and effort went into it and have respect! Deep inside though, we knew it wasn’t whether, but when.
All of the creators knew their work would be outside and vulnerable to attack, and gamely strove to make public art to better our city anyway.
That doesn’t make it any more acceptable for some total idiot to smash it. Well Albuquerque, you managed to make it about three weeks. Good for you. In the past few days, the Report Station, which has been causing a lot of communication, and spreading a lot of joy and weirdness, was all smashed up. It’s looked worse each day too, as if one person, seeing that it was vandalized, had to follow suit, lemming-like.
The only way to combat this destruction, that we can see, is through creation. That’s why we will post new recordings from the Report Station every day for the next five days. Keep calling in, friends. Tell the Report Station your secrets, hopes and dreams. We need ammo against the enemies of beauty and decency.
