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.

Past and current members of the band couldn’t agree on who should appear on stage but were also tired of Gene Simmons borrowing his bandmates’ makeup without asking.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII issued an edict that launched what became known as the Gregorian calendar.

It was Gregory, a fan of college basketball, who ordered February cut short to 28 days so March Madness would arrive sooner and he could fill out his brackets.
