Instead of scribbling notes and taking tests, the students at Albuquerque’s Public Academy for Performing Arts’ media program decided to make their own feature film. The end result, a 60-minute movie called PAPArazzi, will make its public debut on Thursday, Feb. 23, at Guild Cinema. The film tells the story of two ambitious performing arts school students doing battle with one another to get their hands on a coveted scholarship. The film will screen at 5:15, 6:15 and 7:15 p.m. Of course, the cast and crew will be in attendance. To help out, Guild next-door neighbor Il Vicino pizzeria has offered to donate 20 percent of its sales that night to the school’s media program (if you mention PAPArazzi). So come out, have dinner, watch a movie and support Albuquerque’s next generation of filmmakers.

Kanye West Hates the Media
By Simon McCormack [ Fri Aug 7 2009 11:17 AM ]
Kanye West blurted out an anti-press freestyle at a recent Casio-sponsored concert.
The most notable lines were: “I’m sorry I broke your arm/I meant to break your camera” and “I could kill a man/I am a man/Don’t forget I could kill a man.”
Now, I'm sure Mr. West has every right to be upset at the paparazzi who no doubt hound him wherever he goes. However, from a stylistic standpoint, that rap is terrible. You can't just rhyme man with man, Mr. West.
