I must warn you: I'm no mathlete. That said, by my count at least nine significant cultural icons made their entrance on the 15th day of October. (October is the best month of the year.)

The Daily Word in ride-sharing rules, AR-15s and Steely Dan

The Daily Word

In Alibi-centric news: We clarified our critical and satirical intentions in response to an anti-Ted Nugent missive. Perhaps more importantly, we published loads of excellent new content. If you're saving the print ish for weekend reading, scope highlights like

• "Why the US Can, Should and Someday Will Be a Soccer Powerhouse (Maybe)"

• a review of Paul Haggis' Third Person

• "Congratulations!: This is your Steely Dan concert"

• a Drinkable Feast celebrating Hunter S. Thompson's birthday

• "Fine Lines and Flesh: A brief history of tattooing in the Duke City"

In other local media news, KRQE News 13 faces backlash from viewers for their description of undocumented immigrants as "illegal immigrants" who carry disease. KUNM reports on the City's new public records fee schedule.

The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission has directed its staff to revamp the rules that impact ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber. And there was much rejoicing ...

North Valley residents express concern over a proposed waste transfer station.

Have you ever wondered whether sellers of New Mexico properties must disclose natural deaths, homicides or suicides that occurred on premises? The answer is no.

New Mexico lands on another list that's nothing to brag about, being among the top five states with the highest percentage of uninsured residents.

A public relations survey sez Albuquerque is the sixth-most attractive city to border state millennials, owing to its "ethnic, affordable and youthful" vibe.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 reports that APD is all set to purchase 350 AR-15 rifles from a local vendor.

People born on July 10 include Nikola Tesla, Marcel Proust, Tura Satana, Ronnie James Dio, Zoogz Rift and Sofía Vergara.

Happy buckin’ birthday, Dirty Bourbon!

A visit to the Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall and Saloon is well worth the drive to the Northeast Heights. What other bar in town boasts a mechanical bull? It's more than a bar. The Bourbon hosts live bands, a 1300-square foot dance floor and dance lessons. There's even a disco ball shaped like a saddle.

Get down there to live music, including country, including one of the regular acts, Asphalt Cowboy Band. Aside from the usual suspects, they also host touring artists. Performers are mostly country, but there are some exceptions. March Fourth Marching Band from Portland, Ore. played a show in December. Sundays feature local performers and they welcome all genres, says general manager Kaleen Cleland.

Cover charges vary, and the thoroughly Western bar offers weekly events like Two-Step Tuesdays with country/western dance lessons. On Tuesdays, there's Giant Jenga, ConnectFour and a cornhole/bean bag toss. Learn West Coast swing on Wednesdays. Thursday is Ladies Night and includes drink specials. On Fridays, there are line-dancing lessons. Saturday features live music and Sundays' bands are always all-local. There are free games on Sunday, including pool and shuffle board. Get your buck on for free on Sundays; mechanical bull rides are normally $3 per buck or two rides for $5.

Don’t think you have to dress all honky-tonk, but it does add to the fun. During winter, one Friday per month is Flannel Friday and those rocking the grunge fashion staple or plaid get in for free. The Bourbon has a similar special during the summer, says Cleland. Whether you’re dancing, chilling or just down to get your drink on, the Dirty Bourbon is well equipped. Two bars surround the dance floor to keep thirsty patrons fueled up. The Bourbon celebrates its two-year anniversary with a Buckin’ Birthday Bash on Friday, Jan. 25, Nathan Dean & the Damn Band play the fête from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. Like most Burqueños, the Bourbon celebrates its birthday all weekend long. Giddy up! Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall and Saloon • Nathan Dean & the Damn Band • Fri Jan 25 • 9 pm • $3 or FREE (with January birthday) • 21+ • thedirtybourbon.com

Klaus Nomi would have been 69 today

Klaus Nomi's work isn't an acquired taste. You hear it and you either love it or you don't. I do. Nomi was a German countertenor with an astonishingly wide vocal range and an out-of-this-world persona. In one of my favorite music docs, The Nomi Song, he is described as the love child of Tristan Tzara and Maria Callas. That's pretty spot-on. Nomi died of AIDS-related complications in 1983. Check out Klaus Nomi A/V below.

We wish you a merry Lynch-mas

This day, we celebrate all things Lynchian. Whether your poison is his early experimental work (Eraserhead, The Elephant Man), must-see teevee (Twin Peaks, yo), the De Laurentiis period (Dune, Blue Velvet), the Wild at Heart era or his more recent work (Inland Empire, Dumbland), the ideal time to show your devotion to the auteur is his 66th birthday. Scroll on for some A/V inspiration for your worship.
