A Tim Burton-themed bar and by-reservation-only dining room has opened up in New York City with Burtonesque décor and foodstuffs. One more reason for me to avoid New York.
Some kid got arrested for threatening to bomb a Trump rally on Twitter. And I thought Trump supporters were crazy.
A new ABQ café called Gatos y Galletas gives customers a chance to hang out with their furry friends. It also gave me the chance to troll KOB's Caleb James (aka the Duke City Dreamboat).
Here's Tavis Smiley's full interview with Prince. Strap in for talk about angelic healing and chem trails. We'll miss you, you crazy bastard.
Although the largest insect brain is smaller than a grain of rice, researches have learned that bugs are able to make choices, meaning they might have consciousness.

Not Your Average Dream Blog
By Megan Reneau [ Fri Apr 22 2016 4:19 PM ]
I was in New York City. I was watching a beautiful young man explain that “bucket drummers are particularly impressive because no one trains them” so very kindly to an elderly woman.
Suddenly I was in my chair at work seeing his face on my screen. “Hannibal Buress Live at The Historic El Rey Theater this Tuesday night!” the page said.
I became hot as I ferociously typed away buying tickets. Click. Click-click. Tap-tap-tap-tap. Click. CLICK.
Then I realized it wasn't a dream, but a dream come true. The brilliant comedian Hannibal Buress will be in Albuquerque Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30pm for those of us lucky sinners that are over 21.
Mr. Buress will also be in Santa Fe to perform at Skylight at 8pm, so those lucky bastards in Santa Fe get to be closer to him but it's not like it really matters because we all have the chance to absorb some of his near-perfect comedic genius.

Prince really liked Finding Nemo.
