She’s Got a Moch

Shit Burqueñas say

The first time I saw actor Lauren Poole become Lynette at a screening of the local film Imagi-Nation, I bristled. But Lynette’s legit. She’s a whole person with varied interests. You’re probably familiar with her “Shit Burqueños (New Mexicans) Say” videos, put up on YouTube by Blackout Theatre Company. See what she had to say in her interview with the Alibi.

Blackout Theatre Company’s All Sick Burque Speaktionary

Kind of like Merriam-Webster’s with Moch. Example: baeg: noun - a carrying device often used at grocery stores or in a leather variety by women. Example: “You ain’t supposed to use plastic baegs no more. They’re bad for the environment.”

Ask the chick from "Shit Burqueños Say"

Lynette, newly crowned Burque culture queen, has all kinds of shit to say. She's going to say it in our paper.

So, like, what do you want to know?

Shit Burqueños Say: The Return!

Using suggestions from people who loved the first video, Blackout Theatre company made a sequel. The original has nearly 300,000 hits on YouTube.

Since I’m from New Mexico all my life, some of these jokes don’t make sense to me. While watching part two, I was thinking to myself, “Mountain? Button? Why’s that in there?” My sister had a similar reaction. She did not understand what was funny about the “Coke” thing in the first one, because that’s what she calls soda pop. Someone had to explain it to her.

It’s great someone’s documenting this stuff. Albuquerque is a special place.

Fashion

Fashion in Burque

No, for serious

Most fashion writing bugs me. It’s usually snippy, sexist, classist, racist and, above all, anti-local. Women are the primary targets of criticism, everything is absurdly expensive, and white people fashion is the right fashion. Experts usually espouse advice in line with national trends that have nothing to do with your area.

And as we all know, ours is a region with identity.

Which is why I was thrilled to see some locals doing fashion right. The good people at Burque Style embarked on a mission to document our city. (Disclosure: One of their writers, Jessica Del Curto, used to work with me at the Daily Lobo.) The site doesn’t front a nasty tone. Instead, it celebrates the local fashion of regular people.

Today, the team’s posted a boo feature showcasing couples. It’s damn cute.

Travel

NY Times reviews Albuquerque ...

... and mostly gets it right.

The article came out in today’s travel section and is part of the “36 hours in ...” series. It appeared online on Thursday, Oct. 20.

Writer Zora O’Neill picked up on spots well-loved by the Alibi and its readers.

She suggests folks visit Parq Central, Golden Crown Panaderia, Marble (winner of Best Beer Bar in this year’s Best of Burque Restaurants), Ezra’s Place, Stevie’s Happy Bikes, Mary and Tito’s (winner of Best Red Chile in this year’s poll), the Church of Beethoven and Los Poblanos.

That’s a pretty good list. Don’t worry: She also gets to stalwarts such as Frontier, the Balloon Fiesta, the Bosque, the KiMo and the trolley.

O’Neill mentions that the sprawl is intimidating to travelers—an overlooked point in the argument for infill. She also makes a point of talking about Albuquerque’s “vibrant organic movement.” The Alibi’s food section has been emphasizing that unusual aspect of our desert city since early summer.

Zoology crushes it with debut album

The 11 tracks on Zoology’s debut Krush Love buzz with electricity, but the musicians keep the energy tightly controlled, unspooling it meticulously. It’s tense. In a good way. The lyrics are clever and the rapping is precise, with multiple voices flowing smoothly around each other. Under the beats—involuntarily head-nod-inducing ones—melodies conjure hints of soul and jazz.
