Bad Hair Eternity 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2014

On a popular vacation-resort island, at this very time, there's a group of mad scientists creating the world's first genetically modified super-strength toupees. These toupees and now living, breathing monsters — and they're hungry for human blood! Alright, don't worry, this is not in real life. It's probably safe to say that most hairpieces aren't going to kill you in a fit of homicidal mania. But it definitely is happening in Gene Hamm's new graphic novel, Hell Toupee. Hamm reads from his book tonight at the Cartoon Art Museum. Hell Toupee is a tongue-in-cheek look at how spooky (and hilarious) modern science is, and it's also a jab at just how damn vain people can be — come on, you don't want to be the guy wearing a toupee when they come to life and turn on mankind. Although, in Hamm's world, it's up to one sexy, punk barber to save the day and the lives of innocent faux-hair enthusiasts in her little black shorts and combat boots. And that doesn't sound half bad.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
