The Daily Word in powdered alcohol, baby hippos and how to play songs on your telephone keypad!

By Amelia Olson [ Thu Apr 16 2015 11:03 AM ]
The Daily Word

It's Thursday! My baby kept me up all night and now I'm pretty crabby! Here are some news articles for you since I guess you guys can't find your own damn news!

Some jerky thieves stole veterinarian equipment from a mobile equine veteranarian truck. Help solve the crime!

Dr. Sanjay Gupta is calling for a medical marijuana revolution!

We think Joel White would agree!

Bill Cunninghan attends the Easter Parade on 5th Ave where churchgoers were dressed in "styles from the 17th century" and wearing hats that were "either towering fantastical creations or vintage pieces." Oh, New York! You're so fancy and cool!

Finally, some useful information online. This website gives you the telephone keypad codes to play songs like, You Are My Sunshine, The Itsy Bitsy Spider and much more. Don't act like you're above it.

Six states have already banned powdered alcohol and the creator of the powder is rushing to get it on the shelves in remaining states. Critics are concerned people will snort the powder and that drinks might be spiked easier.

A baby hippo was born at the Albuquerque Zoo two days ago! Hallelujah!

Have a good day, sorry I said that thing about finding your own news. We love you!

Good morning! It’s April 15, 2015

Arkansas police are installing spyware on lawyers’ computers,

And a man with a degenerative disease is “excited” to be first in line for a head transplant.

Have a great day!

Alibi Hero: Our Weekly Instagram Photo Contest

By Amelia Olson [ Fri Apr 10 2015 3:50 PM ]

Here at the Alibi we love a lot of things. We are moved by the whimsies and strikingly cold realities of being human and living on Earth. Without heroes, who would we be? Who would guide us through the dark times? Inspire us to be better?

Ham, the first chimpanzee in space was launched into the bursting ether on January 31st, 1961. Named after the lab that prepped his precious body for space exploration, Holloman Aerospace Medical Center, Ham continues to inspire all of us at the Alibi and is our elected hero.

Because we can't win our own contest, we asked you to submit pictures of your hero. This week's winner is Instagram user stormyjill, who captioned her picture with the following:

"Abby, Rape Crisis Center of Central New Mexico's Volunteer Coordinator and my best friend. I'm super proud of you and not a lot of people would be able to do what you do for a living. I'm happy to embarrass you and name you as my #alibihero."

Not only are we thankful for the work that people like Abby do on a daily basis, we are also sorta hoping you'll take your BFF out to lunch with the $10 in Alibi Bucks you won. But don't worry, we have some treats for you too!

Email amelia@alibi.com to redeem your prizes!

For more information about the Rape Crisis Center of Central New Mexico visit their website or call their hotline at 505-266-7711.
