Tip-Top psych band the Pink Mountaintops at Low Spirits TONIGHT!
By Geoffrey Plant [ Tue May 6 2014 2:42 PM ]
The weirder and, in this writer's opinion, the more interesting of Stephen McBean's two mountain-named bands (the other being Black Mountain) the Pink Mountaintops is playing Low Spirits tonight. No self-respecting lover of drug music will miss this. My friend Pierre LaFarge turned me on to this Vancouver-based bunch of weirdoes a week or so ago and there's been nothing else on my speakers since. Can't wait for the sun to set so we can all see the Pink Mountaintops, who are touring in support of their new album Get Back. Did I mention the show is only TEN BUCKS!? C'mon!

The Daily Word in loudmouthed Texans, Horse_ebooks and groped straight tours
By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Sep 25 2013 9:02 AM ]
Ted Cruz's longwinded speech is not a filibuster. It's just a loudmouth Texan going on and on. You know, like the next table over at El Pinto.
Since e-cigarettes are just as addictive as their non-e-peers, and since nobody besides the company that makes them is really sure what goes into their mystery vapor, and since it's still legal for minors to buy them, maybe it's time to regulate them?
Two teenage girls on a tour of Albuquerque Metropolitan Detention Center say they were punched, groped and verbally assaulted by inmates while nearby guards looked on. “… We have a good program; I don’t know how many kids it may or may not change their ways. If we reach one, that’s better than none," says on online instruction manual about the tour program.
Experts warn that use of the drug Molly is on the rise. Also, that we call ecstasy "Molly" now. Also, I am old.
Horse-ebooks has been pulling your leg for about 2 years.
$1500 finders fee to get this guy a girlfriend! I wonder why he's having so much trouble? Blacks, fatties and sluts need not apply.

So, I know you've passed, but do you still need someone to file your taxes for you? The IRS won't know what's up.

International District residents say no to another drug clinic
By Marisa Demarco [ Mon Nov 19 2012 9:00 AM ]
In this week’s Opinion section, longtime reporter Carolyn Carlson takes on a tough issue. UNM wanted to build a substance abuse treatment center near Central and San Mateo. But residents in that area say there are already too many of those kind of places in their neighborhood. UNM argues that more than half of its patients live in or near that region, and it’s serviced by a reliable bus line.
The issue hit close to home for Carlson this year. Read her story and her thoughts on the clinic, addiction and recovery.
