Culture Shock

Despite Spain's advanced age, the country only became a democracy in 1975 after a long hard struggle. The history of that struggle is commemorated in a new exhibit called The Art of Democracy: Fifty Years of Spain's Political Posters (1930s-1980s). The show is exactly what it says it is, marking roughly the period from the Spanish Civil War right up through the country's transition to democracy. The exhibit opens this weekend at UNM's Zimmerman library and will remain on display through Sept. 7. For details, call Teresa at 277-1010.

Christmas in July! Or, How the Zombies Stole Christmas

Those crazy cats of the Eat, Drink and Be Larry troupe bring you another zombielicious late night comedy extravaganza. This weekend, the special guest is Leather Wilson. (We can't wait.) The troop will celebrate Christmas early with presents, sexy elves and Santa. But beware! Insane zombies wait on the rooftops! Will the Larry troop discover the true meaning of Christmas and keep the zombies at bay? If you're as impatient as Larry for yuletide cheer and aren't afraid of getting eaten, then head to Gorilla Tango. The show runs Friday and Saturday at 10:30 p.m., 519 Central NW. Tickets are $8.

Book Review

Oily and Mean

Petroleum Man

Leon Tuggs is lord of all he surveys, mostly because he never leaves the bubble of his possessions. Tuggs is closing in on his goal of becoming a Petroleum Man, one of the godlike creatures who finally obliterates nature with a triumphant, globe-swaddling blanket of consumer goods. But it's lonely being a multi-billionaire if you can't wring admiration from your nearest and dearest.

Book Review

Grueling

Novel

George Singleton's debut novel features a hero named Novel, two Irish cousins named James and Joyce and a baker named Maura-Lee who is famous for her Jesus Crust. You have to hand it to South Carolina's reigning poet laureate of the bizarre: He doesn't pussyfoot around with subtlety. He'd rather club us on the funny bone—again and again.

Art Preview

Summer Smash

Bloc-Busta

War of the Worlds, Fantastic Four and Mr. and Mrs. Smith cost bazillions of dollars to produce and are packed full of pretty people, impressive effects and lots of explosions. Still, if you're over the age of 12, odds are these summer flicks will bore the boxers off you.
