December 31, 2009 Arena Theater, Point Arena, California Moonalice poster by David SingerAccording to Moonalice legend, there are THREE Blue Moons tonight. The first is the beautiful woman right up here on stage, Blue Moonalice. The second is a strain of herbal entertainment by the same name, dedicated to the beautiful Blue. And the third is way, way, way up in the sky. Tonight is the second full moon of the month and all evidence suggests that this Blue Moon is also dedicated to our tribe. Can anyone remember the last time there was a celestial blue moon on New Year’s Eve? I know I can’t, but other factors may be affecting my memory. Wikipedia claims there was one in 1990, but I’m not buying it. By the way, there won’t be another Blue Moon full moon on New Year’s Eve until 2028. I recommend we reconvene right here. According to Moonalice legend, the Point Arena lighthouse is closer to Honolulu than any other point on the U.S mainland. We can’t see it from here, but I smell something yummy that must be from Hawaii. If you are lucky, the birthers will decide Point Arena is a foreign country, just like Hawaii! According to Moonalice legend, this town is home to an endangered rodent known the Point Arena Mountain Beaver. We don’t know much about the Point Arena Mountain Beaver, except that Wikipedia claims it is mysterious. Moonalice legend suggests the real issue is that the Point Arena Mountain Beaver likes to mate on a huge bed of fresh hemp plants. The beavers have their medical cards and grow their own, but insist growing a dozen plants per beaver. The DEA came down hard on them. Now they’re endangered. According to Moonalice legend, on this day in 1759, an Irish fellow by the name of Arthur Guinness took out a 9,000-year lease on some land in Dublin and built a brewery, which he named after himself. His original plan was to brew hemp beer, but it gave him the munchies, so he switched to stout. According to Moonalice legend – and Wikipedia – Point Arena has way more men than women. For every 100 women, there are 110 guys. The imbalance is even greater among those 18 and under. We have no idea what this means, but the tribe salutes your social experiment.
