Burque knows BoB ballots count

And you do too, VOTE NOW!

ABQ's gas tank runs on your opinion
ABQ's gas tank runs on your opinion

Spring is in the air. Everything is coming up roses. Time for a new favorite ... bike path .... Nah, maybe it's just time to punch the mayor of 'Burque in the nose. Hopefully while accompanied by the chick with 'Burque's best tattoo. After ogling Duke City's best bar staff. Or the city's best mural. Whoever you vote for will forgive you. Or laud you. Since you already left the best casino, y'all take note when you bring your car to your fave mechanic and gab about Albuquerque's best TV personality. Don't misinterpret that, we're talking about television. You open-minded, best adult-shopping, filthy-minded folk.

Albuqurque residents want to express their opinion. This is the time. This is the place. Weekly Alibi's Best of Burque is registering your thoughts. Your opinions. Your needlessly biased self-esteem and ego-centric positions on the what-not and the that thing-a-ma-jig that is SO 'Burque. Mmm, sexy.... What is the best vintage apparel store?

A better question is who is the "best street artist"? When you're driving the kids to school, who is the "best local radio personality"? Remember that billboard on northbound I-25 advertising the psychic? No? Weekly Alibi is fairly sure you have psychic friends anyway, so vote already, citizens!

          Rowdy’s Dream Blog #236: Prince is racing to rescue us.

          This dream story begins with textures scrolling back into the 'screen' like credits. The sound hole of a guitar appears with the face of a singing man inside it. The soundtrack is a Prince song. As the scene opens we have already been captured by the Feds. We will soon be hauled off to prison. But we have an escape plan. Even now, Prince is racing to rescue us in his pearl limo. We are to hide under papers in one of five dumpsters until he arrives. I see the Feds are cleaning our bathroom, something we never did. They also announce their plans to empty all the dumpsters. I try to dissuade them but this only arouses their suspicions. We see Prince rocketing up the canyon freeway. A large hay truck jackknifes and overturns. Prince is trapped in the resulting jam.

            V.19 No.50 | 12/16/2010
            Charley’s co-owner Dave Chapman stands before some of the store’s stock of vinyl.

            Editor's Note

            Sorry, Charley

            Last week in my article “Vinyl X-Mas,” which overviewed good places to buy records in Albuquerque, I wrote that “ ... I don’t like that Charley’s shrink-wraps used vinyl, preventing pre-purchase inspection (and previewing the music) ... .” The comment drew fire from the owner, employees and loyal customers of Charley’s 33s & CDs (7602 Menaul NE, 296-3685). This was my experience at Charley’s—about two years ago, I bought a used copy of Prince’s Purple Rain, but I wasn’t permitted to cut through the shrink-wrap and check out the condition of the vinyl before my purchase. I brought it home to find that “When Doves Cry” skipped. After speaking with Charley’s co-owner Colleen Corrie last week, she assured me that my case is totally unusual. She says the store will open and play any record for a customer, and that the shrink-wrapping measure is taken to preserve the quality of the vinyl. The store also carries thousands of $1 records that aren’t wrapped. So, I hope that clears things up, and that no reader hesitates to check out Charley’s. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
