Zoinks! A pair of Canadian brothers have released a new documentary about Camano Island’s Colton Harris-Moore that uses interviews and animated sequences to tell the saga of the Barefoot Bandit, Harris-Moore’s run from police by foot, car and plane.

Kiss and yell: Kiss, the 40-year-old glam rock group that wore black and white makeup on stage, announced they won’t play at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.
