The Daily Word In Space Camp, Fake Babies and Becoming President
By Amelia Olson [ Wed Jan 21 2015 11:53 AM ]
It’s Wednesday! How are you? Have you been getting enough sleep and drinking enough water? Don’t get too worried about all the stuff you worry about, because it will all work out. Probably. Just take a deep breath, read these mostly uplifting stories, and remember that you are important and people love you.

The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse

A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?
And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.
Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!
Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

Best of Burque
Best of Burque Photo Deadline Extended to Noon on Monday March 24
You can email Best of Burque photos to email@example.com now.
By Carl Petersen [ Wed Mar 19 2014 1:58 PM ]
I wanted to enter Gomez in Best of Burque, but when I tried to send his picture in (to me) there was some kind of … photorazzle.boogerbomb thing I had to register on … and then the phone rang, and I spilled my coffee, and Dr. Cyclops was on and I just never got back to it. Does everything have to be so complicated?
No, it doesn’t. And it’s not fair we should miss out on so many photos of babies, dogs, cars and tattoos because of some complicated thing we set up a few years ago. My apologies to the 50 or so of you who jumped through the hoops.
Now you can just email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Monday, March 24. We’ll put some of them in our Best of Burque issue, on stands Thursday, April 3. (Yes, I know it will actually be out on Wednesday April 2, but we like making that complicated, too. Don’t ask. It’s a weird little publishing thing.)
And remember, you still have until midnight tonight (Tuesday, March 18) to submit your Best of Burque votes, or even just change them around in case you just discovered a great new … furniture store or something.
Also, dog photos aside, we really do just count up the votes with no monkey business—so don’t call me complaining if your grandma’s nicknack nook didn’t win an award. It’s not my fault. Believe in us. Believe in the system.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #317: Toga Party!
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Tue Oct 15 2013 1:25 PM ]
G and I lead our two dogs through darkened hallways lined with folding chairs. We discover that wolves and badgers are sleeping under them. There is much exploratory, reciprocal sniffing, but no growling. We encounter two large pit bulls. As we pass them, I feel a pit bull’s muzzle pressed against the small of my back, but I continue walking calmly towards the door. We enter a well-lit room filled with people dressed in togas. A cheerful woman tells us that we are about to be treated to a special performance. We sit on sheet-covered bleachers, dressed in togas and wait for the show to begin.

Bowling for Canines
By Lisa Barrow [ Thu Oct 3 2013 1:18 PM ]
Back in May, Alibi told you about Edward Goodman, the attorney and animal rescuer seeking artists to transform some humble wooden bowling pins into knockout pieces of art for a worthy cause. Happily, Goodman’s work has paid off. On Saturday, Oct. 5, Corrales will be home to Bowled and Beautiful, an art show to benefit homeless dogs. Twenty-five quirky, humorous and beautiful sculptural objects made from those vintage bowling pins—everything from toucans to saints to cat Picassos—are being sold by silent auction, with all proceeds benefiting Second Chance Animal Rescue and NMDog.
Goodman says he’s “most impressed that, with a budget of ‘zero,’ we have been able to put together a fantastic one-of-a-kind art show and fundraiser.” Indeed, judging by all the swag the event’s managed to round up, Bowled and Beautiful seems to have struck a chord with the community.
Vegetarian and vegan hors d’oeuvres are being donated by Perea’s Tijuana Bar and Restaurant, the Bistro Brewery and the Oasis Desert Bistro, while the Corrales venue, St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church (4908B Corrales Road) has also been offered up at no charge. Even the jazz is donated, thanks to Corrales ensemble Mood Swing. Along with the artworks, products and services contributed by local businesses are up for bid in the silent auction.
With so many thousands of animals in New Mexico shelters, Bowled and Beautiful creatively tackles a serious cause. Put your bid in on a one-of-a-kind artwork to help some one-of-a-kind critters.

Adorable dogs interrupt international soccer game
By Emily Aragon [ Tue Jan 15 2013 2:02 PM ]
There isn’t too much that can be said about this video…except that even when dogs ruin everything, they still make it all better. It’s not certain how these two pups made it onto the field during this match between the Turkish team Galatasaray and Germany's VfR Aalen. This fact somehow makes it all the more cute.
