This monkey cannot write haikus.

Words vs. syllables

The difference is one evil monkey

Those readers who pick up the print addition will notice a small blip in the ”Culture Shock” column this week. We are soliciting submissions for our annual haiku contest. (This is still in effect. Send ‘em in!)

The column is written in haiku format, so clearly I know what that is. But some kind readers have pointed out—in variously witty ways—that the instructions ask for lines featuring 5, then 7, then 5 words. The proper allotment for verbosity is 5-7-5 syllables. This error has already been corrected online, so those readers who only interact with us in cyberspace have nothing to worry about. Sadly, there is nothing we can do about the print version except offer up the explanation.

Late Tuesday, when we were scurrying to get the paper in order and off to the printer, I heard a whinnying and scraping in Kimo Way. I went back there and opened the door to find a Pegasus. It was dingy and it smelled like trash, but it was still a Pegasus in all its glory. Never having ridden one, but always yearning to do so, I grabbed its wavy mane, jumped onto its silvery back, and it leapt into the sky.

While I was soaring through the clouds, an evil monkey snuck into my office. Seeing my unfinished haiku article open on my computer, he removed his suit coat and fedora and had a seat at my desk.

After galavanting on the Pegasus and bidding it farewell, I was so starry-eyed I didn’t even notice that the article was finished and sent off in my absence.

I sincerely apologize for the misinformation and word/syllable confusion. If anyone sees a dapper evil monkey, please report it to the Alibi offices immediately. While you’re at it, grab him and explain that haikus are arranged in 5-7-5 syllables.

Auto repairs in action at All In The Wrist

Music to Your Ears

All In The Wrist

Having a good, honest mechanic is as valuable as having a good attorney or accountant. Just like the latter two, a mechanic is there to sort through and make sense of a system that’s inscrutable to the layman. Lucky for Albuquerque, two friendly, reliable and skilled gearheads founded a full-service automotive and diesel repair shop back in January. Having another local business like this is swell on its own, but this one is musician- and women-owned.

Rockabilly Blowout

The Alibi’s Group Hug greases up

This month, Alibi Group Hug is celebrating that rebellious marriage of early rhythm and blues with country and Western music. Despite being a nascent form of rock and roll, rockabilly, and its wild, raw, reverberating energy, has endured for six decades. On Saturday, an assembly of New Mexico’s most rockabilly-est citizens will provide their sonic services at the Launchpad.

What about this other sign?

The back side of the Kimo has cool things too.

The new KiMo sign is really cool. It makes me happy. But with all this hullaballoo about it, I started thinking about another sign. A sign no one sees unless they hang out in the alley.
(Reasons for hanging out in the alley include, but are not limited to, smoking, peeing and fighting. At least, these are the things I have witnessed there.)
On the back side of the KiMo, which is also the back side of the Alibi offices, is an old metal sign that's completely out of place.
It's set in the wall near our door, and it reads "Ferguson and Lind PC, Attorneys."

Do not be fooled. We do not have any attorneys in our back room. What is the sign doing there? Why is it in the alley? Were there once lots of little businesses back there, including some lawyers who had a small office with no street entrance? The sign also reads "411 Kimo Way."
What is this Kimo Way? Is someone referring to the alley as Kimo Way?! That's a bit euphemistic. And awesome. I think from now on we should all call the stinky alley Kimo Way.
When you come down to check out the new KiMo sign, take a little detour down Kimo Way and check out the forgotten mystery sign too.

What's Happening

The new KiMo sign is awesome

When I rolled up to the Alibi offices a couple doors down from the KiMo, a dude in a cherry-picker was trying to wrangle this thing into place. It’s really lovely. In this week’s feature by Jessica Cassyle Carr (online later today), Mayor Richard Berry talks about embracing and restoring the odd old buildings in Burque to help us avoid turning into a “cookie-cutter city.”

The KiMo is 84-years-old and was part of a trend in the early 20th century to create elaborate movie houses. On Friday, there’s going to be a dedication of the sign that includes a screening of Metropolis with a live score by Alloy Orchestra. Tickets are $25 and available at the KiMo Ticket Office or through Ticketmaster.
