Violet is pregnant with twins. They perform a vaudeville routine and ponder their future and their father wants to run away. Was it because he told 16-year-old daughter Beauty he needed “peace and quiet,” and she took a vow of silence? Could be. But that doesn’t explain why she eats tree bark, rocks, and dirt, washed down with cups of paint.

Mike Peters has used his Welsh alt-rock band the Alarm to prank his audience, as when they released a single under a fake band name, hiring young imposters to lip-synch a video that helped propel the tune into the top 40, until everyone found out it was the Alarm. The intent was to show that classic rockers had what it takes to chart, a point he has maintained by releasing new material and re-recording part of the band’s early catalog in new “re-imagined” versions. Opened by locals Manual Scan.

The Tuna Challenge is the largest tuna fishing tournament in the continental U.S. The fish caught are kept by participants, and oversupply is given away to friends and family. The tuna tastes best without ever being frozen, and, according to sources, there have been times that anglers break out the wasabi and soy sauce on the boat and have some sashimi within minutes of the fish being caught.

Full moon night walk
Walk in the canyon at night under the light of the moon. Orb spiders build webs across the trail. Most orb weavers construct webs in a vertical plane. During the process of making an orb web, the spider will use its own body for measurements. You may see owls and bats fly overhead, while crickets and cicadas chirp. Bring a flashlight, water, and insect repellent.
