The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse

The Daily Word

It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!

Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.

In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,

And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!

A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?

And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.

Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!

Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

Quirky Doesn’t Rhyme with Burque

But homegrown retailers do have the goods

Regardless of rhyme (of lack thereof), shopping locally for quintessentially “Burque” ( /bo͝or-keh/) gifts transcends labels like “quirky” (/ˈkwərkē/) with our burg’s diverse and uncommon goods.

Burque knows BoB ballots count

And you do too, VOTE NOW!

Spring is in the air. Everything is coming up roses. Time for a new favorite ... bike path .... Nah, maybe it's just time to punch the mayor of 'Burque in the nose. Hopefully while accompanied by the chick with 'Burque's best tattoo. After ogling Duke City's best bar staff. Or the city's best mural. Whoever you vote for will forgive you. Or laud you. Since you already left the best casino, y'all take note when you bring your car to your fave mechanic and gab about Albuquerque's best TV personality. Don't misinterpret that, we're talking about television. You open-minded, best adult-shopping, filthy-minded folk.

Albuqurque residents want to express their opinion. This is the time. This is the place. Weekly Alibi's Best of Burque is registering your thoughts. Your opinions. Your needlessly biased self-esteem and ego-centric positions on the what-not and the that thing-a-ma-jig that is SO 'Burque. Mmm, sexy.... What is the best vintage apparel store?

A better question is who is the "best street artist"? When you're driving the kids to school, who is the "best local radio personality"? Remember that billboard on northbound I-25 advertising the psychic? No? Weekly Alibi is fairly sure you have psychic friends anyway, so vote already, citizens!

This is Chris Wright, an attendee at this year's ABQ Pride Fest. To quote my mother, Chris seemed both pretty on the outside & on the inside. His fierce outfit attracted a lot of attention, including the admiration of two small girls. I watched as the young ladies (who were also dressed in their Pride finest) earned smiles & high-fives from this young man. To me, he was everything that Pride should be - vibrant, unique, kind, and inclusive. That's why I titled his photo "Chris Wright is Beautiful."

Food truck heaven

Food

Now I understand why dogs chase cars

“Who thought of this idea? Like, ‘Hey man, I’m gonna buy a bus, make it awesome and then sell crepes from it.’ I mean, thank God they did cause this is delicious. ...”

That was a quote from a neighboring customer, and my taste buds surely agree.

Food trucks are not a new phenomenon. They’ve been driven around cities for decades. I even grew up frequenting a taco truck on the way home from soccer practice. It was quick, easy, cheap and, above all, delicious. However, the difference between the taco truck parked in the dirt lot by I-25 and what I experienced this past week are worlds apart.

It began in Los Angeles, as Kogi Korean BBQ trucks weaved their way into the hearts of Californians through tantalizing cuisine. With instantaneous tweets updating the location of their fleet of tasty grub, I’m pretty sure this contributed to the population compulsively checking their smart phones. The whole city was glued to their mobile devices, in pursuit of that damn Kogi truck. I like to imagine a bug-eyed crowd, clutching their growling stomachs while making a rapid zombie crawl into parking lots to find the infamous truck. Needless to say, food trucks were making a gourmet comeback.

The trend soon made its way across the nation and cultures: Belgian waffles in New York City, lobster rolls in Harvard Square, crème brûlée in San Francisco and cupcakes in Philly. You can pretty much get any type of food you could ever want from a mobile kitchen. Yet, unbeknownst to many Burqueños, we too have our own collection of motorized restaurants.

Every Wednesday in the Talin Market parking lot, an array of eclectic vehicles serve up delicious nosh. In the mood for some comfort food? Head on over the The Supper Truck for some good ol’ shrimp and grits or maybe some catfish tacos. What about pierogies? The Gedunk Food Truck can sate that craving in a savory second. Needless to say, Albuquerque is not lacking in diversity. This makes choosing what to eat so much more difficult, but that’s not a problem I’m too upset about having.

The variety and temptation of the trucks did have me wandering around the parking lot for a good 15 minutes, unsure of what delectable dish I was going to have during my lunch break. I finally settled on The Boiler Monkey. This refurbished bus caught my eye with one simple word: crêpe. Whether you want sweet—think Nutella with banana, cinnamon with baked apples—or savory—maybe the Burque Turkey interests you—there will be a crêpe specifically created to suit your tastes. As much of a sweet freak as I am, I opted for savory and went with The Farm. Complete with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and feta, and topped with a balsamic reduction sauce, I was in taste bud heaven.

Memory, music and stealing Martin Mull’s material

I reveal some embarrassing memories, wax (sort of) poetic about the New Mexico music scene and use way too many proper nouns in my intro column, Dancing About Pueblo Revival Style Architecture. I’m a noise fan, so send me your feedback.

She’s Got a Moch

Shit Burqueñas say

The first time I saw actor Lauren Poole become Lynette at a screening of the local film Imagi-Nation, I bristled. But Lynette’s legit. She’s a whole person with varied interests. You’re probably familiar with her “Shit Burqueños (New Mexicans) Say” videos, put up on YouTube by Blackout Theatre Company. See what she had to say in her interview with the Alibi.

Feature

Blackout Theatre Company’s All Sick Burque Speaktionary

Kind of like Merriam-Webster’s with Moch. Example: baeg: noun - a carrying device often used at grocery stores or in a leather variety by women. Example: “You ain’t supposed to use plastic baegs no more. They’re bad for the environment.”

Ask the chick from "Shit Burqueños Say"

Lynette, newly crowned Burque culture queen, has all kinds of shit to say. She's going to say it in our paper.

So, like, what do you want to know?

Shit Burqueños Say: The Return!

Using suggestions from people who loved the first video, Blackout Theatre company made a sequel. The original has nearly 300,000 hits on YouTube.

Since I’m from New Mexico all my life, some of these jokes don’t make sense to me. While watching part two, I was thinking to myself, “Mountain? Button? Why’s that in there?” My sister had a similar reaction. She did not understand what was funny about the “Coke” thing in the first one, because that’s what she calls soda pop. Someone had to explain it to her.

It’s great someone’s documenting this stuff. Albuquerque is a special place.
