Coping after Christmas? There will be DWI checkpoints in the Northwest Command Area (I-40 area) on December 26 and 27 starting around 10 pm and going till 3 am. If you picked up our Boozy Gift Guide, maybe you'll remember I wrote about how to get home safely after a night of shenanigans (aka getting sloshed).

You can bookmark it, cut it out of the paper and put it in your wallet or bra, write it down on your arm, hell, get it tattooed on your arm; just don't drive drunk!

Calm Down

Friday, Dec 25: All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

On the frontlines of WWI, the true story of camaraderie, music and peace between fellow humans.

Here's to Dickens

And the greatest Christmas story every told

My favorite Christmas story of all time is … A Christmas Carol. Maybe it is because I love Halloween and the story is a nice marriage of the two. Three ghosts showing up at the strike of an eerie old clock? And those children hiding under The Ghost of Christmas Future's cloak? Jesus! There's nothing scarier than taking a look at all the decisions you've made in your life and really flinching. Even the Muppets couldn't really make the story totally lighthearted. The horror of the past, the horror...

Charles Dickens was said to love a night time stroll around the gaslight illuminated streets of 19th century London. I can only imagine the spooky stories culled from those cobbled streets, how the coughs born of a grimy, coal-fired city and the figures huddled for warmth in the winding alleys might have produced the works we're familiar with today. Dickens wanted to write a political pamphlet about the social ills he saw in the city, instead, he decided to write A Christmas Carol, declaring that a bit of fiction would have much more force.

The endearing image of Scrooge, sickly old Tiny Tim and the cadre of spirits that direct the story certainly have a moral to teach that translates through the centuries.

Are you a typical shitty driver in Albuquerque? Probably. This teen is calling you out.

Straight from Santaland

Ah, the holiday season. A time for love, sharing, and generosity towards our fellow man. Alas, it is really a season of the blatant and rather terrifying corporate takeover of the once happy holidays, when mankind turns into a creature of cutthroat consumerism, who is generally cold and much poorer than he'd like to be.

The Santaland Diaries show you this in bulk; these creatures are all you see as a department store elf. David Sedaris chronicles the story of a slacker turned into Santa's little helper, the play's been given great reviews by all the good New York people: the NY Times, Newsday and The New Yorker.

It's now or never, folks, the show plays weekend only. Buy your tickets for only $10 at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway Blvd SE). Curtain is at 8pm on the Friday, Dec. 18 and Saturday, Dec. 19 Check out our Facebook for a chance to win two free tickets to the show.

The Daily Word in Ferguson police, UNM experiments and Empty Socks

The Daily Word

After a standoff on a California bridge, Daniel Perez was arrested and is being held after vanishing last week with his wife and four sons. His sons are safe; however, his wife's body was found in the trunk of the family's car near their home.

After a report brought attention to harsh interrogation techniques administered by the CIA, the agency's chief defends the behavior, saying it's “unknowable” if they could have gotten the same answers with conventional questioning.

Due to unanswered questions, the FBI is looking into a North Carolina teen's hanging death (after it was ruled a suicide) to see if there was foul play.

The state appeals court in Arizona dismissed Debra Jean Milke's murder charge after she was on death row for 22 years for the killing of her 4-year-old son.

A temporary restraining order placed on Ferguson police has made it mandatory that they warn protesters before using tear gas.

A couple students at UNM are getting some attention for their “social experiment” videos.

Photos and video have been released of the fire that happened at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

Albuquerque media outlets banded together to raise funds for a single father whose house was robbed (and whose Christmas gifts for his two sons were stolen). The Christmas spirit's alive folks!

Some people really didn't like Paz Winshtein's take on the Virgen de Guadalupe.

Empty Socks, a long-lost film by Walt Disney from 1927, was discovered in a library in Norway.

The Daily Word In Snobby Egyptian Cats, Laughing Gas And Jesus Handing Out Pot

The Daily Word

If you wanna be the new CEO of Abercrombie (apparently they’re still a store) you can be! Because that one guy quit. Or resigned. Or whatever the “cool kids” do.

A local high school creative writing teacher resigned after controversy surrounding a student's story about Jesus handing out pot. (Why wasn’t she our high school creative writing teacher?!)

And who hasn’t demanded a plane be taxied back to its terminal when flight snacks are served inadequately?

This woman dressed as the Abominable Snowman, and her poodle, Lizard, understand the true meaning of Christmas/life.

Any time we’ve asked for a bite of someone’s brownie, it was NEVER laced with pot. Thanks for nothing!

In other more duh-ish news, a scientist thinks laughing gas is a great way to treat depression! Tell my uptight dentist that. He’s stingy with that shit.

And if you have a genius cat, it’s possible she was once an “Egyptian princess” who was “used to being treated like a deity”
