The Daily Word in voting, Ouija Boards and Halloween jerks

Early voting begins today.

Here's a rundown on the money spent so far by organizations on both sides of the abortion ban measure.

The signs are everywhere. Beware Nob Hill's "Threat from above!"

This woman in North Dakota found a new way to make kids cry on Halloween.

Here's a list of reasons people were denied security clearances with the Department of Defense. Go ahead, do a search for "sex," you know you want to.

Don't dress up as these things for Halloween, please.

Webgame Wednesday on Thursday: They Took Our Candy

The invasion of the Halloween-themed horror games continues on Webgame Wednesday. They Took Our Candy is fairly straightforward. Space aliens have invaded the streets of suburbia and snatched up all the good candy. You must assemble your best team of costumed kiddies (different costumes bestow different special powers), and sidescroll your way though wave after wave of monsters from space. Use the candy you gather to upgrade your powers and unlock new costumes (a kitty cat?). Yay, candy!

Full Steam Ahead

Steampunk’s mashup of anachronism and science fiction throws a wrench in the cogs of throwaway culture

Steampunk has been part of the cultural conversation for the past several years, as DIY-ers have embraced a handwrought, Steam Age aesthetic over high-tech gloss. Both a pop culture genre and an artistic movement, steampunk has its roots in 19th- and early-20th- century science fiction like Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. Its fans reimagine the Industrial Revolution mashed-up with modern technology such as the computer. Dressing the part calls for corsets and lace-up boots for women, top hats and frock coats for men. Accessories include goggles, leather aviator caps and the occasional ray gun. And there's a hint of Sid Vicious and Mad Max in there, too.

Bikes ’n’ Brews

You and your friends can take your two-wheelers down a delicious route on Saturday, from one local brewery to another, until you’ve hit five. The Tour de Beer de Burque starts at 10:45 a.m., and the $25 registration fee gets you a discount at each stop, as well as involvement in fun activities, the chance to win prizes and some Good Samaritan points. The event is a benefit for the AIO Ambassador Program, a leadership development initiative for Native Americans seeking to positively impact and advance their communities. The most important thing you need to know is, it’s going to be a really fun ride! Meet at Hallenbrick Brewery (3817 Hawkins, NE) on Saturday morning and the day’s route, which also includes Marble and La Cumbre, will be revealed. Wear a costume, like a glam-punk or a zombie, and pay only $20.

Quick note: You can get a DWI on a bike, so play it smart.

Exclusive to the Alibi

There weren’t many comic books, but it was packed and people had a great time.

Standard slideshow disclaimer: These are Flickr-brand slideshows, so that means (1) You need Flash installed to see them (iPhone users and Flash haters may visit our Flickr gallery directly); and (2) if you want to see the name and caption you have to click the “enlarge” icon and then click the “Show Info” link in the upper-right hand corner. OK, so it’s kinda rocket science. Blame Flickr.

The Folks Get Freaky

Lucid dreaming with CocoRosie

You’re wandering through a labyrinthine mansion, lured on by eerily seductive voices. Spider webs audibly brush your cheeks and chimes ring out all around as you stumble into a room painted with murals of unicorns and rainbows. Some kind of plastic box emits scratchy beats and two beautiful sirens with mustaches and goatees beckon you with nonsense words. Crickets or perhaps a ceiling fan whir in the background. Did you watch a David Lynch movie right before bed? No, but you could’ve been listening to CocoRosie.
