Words vs. syllables
The difference is one evil monkey
By Summer Olsson [ Fri Aug 12 2011 10:44 PM ]
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.

The Alibi’s Group Hug greases up
By Jessica Cassyle Carr
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.
By Summer Olsson [ Wed Jun 1 2011 1:39 PM ]
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.
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."

The new KiMo sign is awesome
By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Jun 1 2011 12:57 PM ]
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.

The man, the myth, the legend.
By John Bear [ Tue Mar 1 2011 11:31 AM ]
Don’t forget, Alan Arkin is coming to Albuquerque to read from his memoir. That’s tonight, March 1.
Arkin snorted drugs, taught little girls how to dance sexy and espoused the virtues of promiscuity in Little Miss Sunshine.
He was also gangster Ernie Lazarro in The Jerky Boys (worth seeing if only for Tom Jones singing “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravitz, with a full brass section).
He’s been a part of your life.
Now he can be the guy reading to you from his memoir, An Improvised Life, on at the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW) at 7 p.m.
The event is free, but if you buy a copy of the book from Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW), not only will you be helping out a local merchant, but you get your seat half an hour early.
