Bedazzle the Alibi’s Box

Distribution box, silly

By Summer Olsson [ Tue Jun 21 2011 2:00 PM ]

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.

Fine Print:

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 summer@alibi.com

or snail mail to

Culture Shock

Arty Boxes

I always want to see more art in the streets. Sometimes I walk past a banged-up paper distribution stand, electric box or dumpster and I think, Man, I could sure make that look cooler. I bet you do too. Since we just had a contest for writers (“Thanks for Flashing Us,” pg. 26 of this week’s issue), we thought we’d have a little fun with visual artists. We also need to do something to spruce up some of these old Alibi boxes.

Office Excavations

By Summer Olsson [ Sat May 28 2011 4:47 PM ]

This week's offering is about quantity over strangeness. It's not too weird that I found some old Alibi stickers. It's just that there are so many. Like a whole desk drawer full. If you've been wanting an Alibi sticker to adorn your car, notebook or favorite calculator, now you know why you couldn't get one anywhere.

Someone has been hoarding them. "I'll just keep these safely hidden, in reserve for a time when there are no more Alibi stickers on the planet. This desk drawer is the perfect place. Bwaahahaha."

I think I'll include some of these in future prize packs for contests. On that note, have you submitted your Flash Fiction entry yet? The deadline is June 1.

Enter the Valentine's Day Contest

Express yourself, win fabulous prizes

By John Bear [ Thu Jan 27 2011 1:09 PM ]

There is still time to enter Alibi's Eighth Annual Valentine's Day Card Contest. A few entries have trickled in and there's some really good stuff.

As I said before, anything creepy is good. Also, sending stuff laden with precious metals, jewels, cash is always a plus. Journalism is my passion, but it ain't paying the bills. Any cards with valuables I can resell will help ease my transition into organized crime.

Remember: One entry per person. They shouldn't be bigger than an eight and a half by 11 inch piece of paper and should weigh no more than a five kilogram gold brick. Hint.

Mail them to 2118 Central Ave. SE, P.O. Box 151. Entries must be received by Feb. 1. No animal parts, bodily fluids or anything else that will bother my OCD.

Thank you. Have fun.

The winners will be displayed in the Feb. 10 issue of the Alibi.
