I guess I just like liking things

Weird Al Week


These days when you mention Albuquerque, New Mexico, most folk’ll immediately think about Breaking Bad. It makes sense: the show was filmed in and around the city, and uses many local landmarks in the show.

I haven’t seen Breaking Bad, though. And even when I eventually do, Albuquerque will still trigger for Weird Al first. I’ve already talked about this song before, but today it gets a special mention because I am actually in Albuquerque while I am writing this article. Not only that, I am listening to the song “Albuquerque” while writing an article about Albuquerque while I am in Albuquerque.  Is your mind blown? Because mine is.

Oh, you’ve never heard the song?  Or it’s been too long?  Give this video a try. It isn’t “official,” but it is a fun Flash animation video of the song:

It was my intention to get around to doing some of the things he mentions in the song, but there was an awful lot of other things to do and I was only in town for a few days, so this will have to suffice:

Who needs a Donut Mart? I doooooooooooooo

Who needs a Donut Mart? I doooooooooooooo

Luckily, any donuts I wanted they had, so I didn’t have to settle for a box of starving crazed weasels.

I did see the/a “world famous Holiday Inn,” but I wasn’t able to get a picture of it. Maybe next time.
