Are you planning on moving to a new apartment? If so, Sergio Gutierrez just won a new truck. He won it with a $3 “Bucks & Trucks” scratcher he bought at an Allsup’s in Santa Fe because his wife didn’t pack him a lunch (again). Sergio is reportedly so happy he could cry, but is aware of the social taboos against it.
This is not to say that Sergio is volunteering to help you move, either. I’m just saying he won a truck, so if you know him … it wouldn’t hurt to ask. If he says no, you can always try to win a truck yourself. Also, I have a kid at UNM, so I think scratchers are cool. Everybody buy scratchers.
In this week’s “Culture Shock”, we called for your designs for Alibi distribution boxes. Send ‘em in and we’ll choose the 12 best/weirdest/coolest/funniest ideas.
If we pick yours, we’ll give you $25 for supplies, drop a box off at your place and give you 3 weeks to manifest your creation. Finished boxes will be placed in prominent locations along the Central corridor for all to admire. The Alibi will create a “walking tour” podcast with info about you and your artwork, so everyone can check you out. The city will be that much more beautiful.
You can use any style and medium, as long as you incorporate the word “Alibi” into your design. Boxes still have to work, e.g. the door has to open and shut. If possible, send a sketch of your plan or a photo of previous work. Email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org
or snail mail to
413 Central NW, Albuquerque, 87102
Deadline for proposals is July 1, so get crackin’!
