The Daily Word in burning Marilyn's dresses, the last Southern Democrat and Crispin Hellion Glover

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Dec 4 2014 12:30 PM ]
The Daily Word

An 80-year-old New Mexican man plans to have his collection of Marilyn Monroe's clothing burned in Zozobra after his death. It's, like, in his will. And it seems a fitting tribute to the life of an actress whose flame burned intensely and all too briefly.

US headline OTD? DC bans pot testing of job applicants via WaPo; okay, okay, it's not exactly catchy, but I sure hope it's catching.

Homelessness is heartbreaking.

The City has hired a local NAACP leader named Harold Bailey, but the choice remains controversial. According to a quoted source, Bailey has "sold his soul."

You know what Downtown needs? If you guessed "a temporary ice skating rink," bingo! This could only turn out well, no?

Oh and did I mention that Crispin Hellion Glover is coming? Rhetorical! In fact, he's probably already here. Scope our interview with the actor/author/auteur, "Begging the Question(s): Crispin Hellion Glover talks critical thought, propaganda and taboo." Visit with Glover on Friday and Saturday night at The Guild Cinema.

And Devin D. O'Leary schools us on Hollywood holidaze in this year's Alibi Holiday Film Guide.

Tim Walker's photographs of fairy queen Tilda Swinton are (like most anything Swinton-related) rad.

The Daily Word in Grandmas Who Get High, Ryan Gosling's "Twin Soul" Stalker and America Doesn't Need Gun Regulations, Duh!

By Amelia Olson [ Fri Nov 21 2014 11:53 AM ]

It’s Friday November 21st 2014 and people still send things in the mail!

Meanwhile in California, a totally stable and pretty nice lady left a doll catalog on the front steps of Ryan Gosling's house, because she is his “twin soul”. This happened after Gosling's sister didn’t respond to the woman’s countless emails. RUDE.

CALL THE FBI! WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF HOW THIS MISSING NEW MEXICAN KITTEN ENDED UP IN A DUFFEL BAG IN MAINE!

And even though the world is mostly terrible, this 100 year old woman visited the ocean for the first time in her life on an all expenses paid vacation.

The Daily Word in voting, cruelty and Gareth Pugh

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Oct 30 2014 11:37 AM ]
The Daily Word

It's time to rock the Bernalillo County vote, y'all. Peruse the 2014 Alibi Election Guide to learn more about key races and for translations of ballot-speak on advisory questions and constitutional amendments. Contrary to propaganda that voting doesn't matter, it totally does. And local and state elections are a way to make a real positive impact on our community. And you know you want a sticker. So vote early through Saturday, Nov. 1, or rock the ballot on Election Day proper.

Burque is one of only two cities nationwide recognized as an Urban Bird Treaty City, y'all. Translation: Our burg is for the birds ... in a good way.

A motion to dismiss charges against three teens charged with beating two Native homeless men to death in the South Valley was denied.

A man suspected of committing a string of home invasions of elderly women in southeast Albuquerque was arrested by SWAT.

A deer jumped in front of a motorcycle. The bike is totaled, the deer is dead and the biker? He's fine ... and headed back to work as a zookeeper.

Chronic fatigue syndrome patients, it's all in your head ... specifically your brain.

I'm not a huge fan of the fashion-industrial complex. But Gareth Pugh's Spring 2015 Read-to-Wear line is blowing my occult-obsessed mind ATM. Get your costume inspiration on, y'all.
