Top Ten Films of 2011

Did you see a lot of movies in 2011? Did you see as many as Alibi film editor Devin D. O’Leary? Check out his top ten list right here. And please feel free to add your own personal top ten list if you disagree!

Report Station

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.

Report Station

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.

What’s going on? Find out.

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.

Feature

Operation Art Box

We put out a call to local artists, asking them to show us how they’d redesign an Alibi distribution box. We were subsequently showered with submissions, and we spent weeks poring over drawings, sketches, digital renderings, and mad ramblings in letters and emails. Notions of every sort sloshed across our desks, fresh from the minds of our city’s creative geniuses.
