SUNDAY, NOV. 25, 2012 >>>

1. This spring the Weekly Volcano wrote a feature on Mikayla Irle and the film Bible Quiz. Originally from Edgewood, this high-schooler accomplished what few can, or will even attempt: she learned by heart multiple books from the Good Book. By senior year she had Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians, and Philemon (roughly 17 pages of text according to our translation) down cold. Sweet Jesus. Irle's efforts belonged to a nationwide evangelical sport known as Bible Quiz. She and her teammates from Tacoma's Life Center church made it all the way to the 2008 National Championship in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Their cross-country journey fuels Nicole Teeny's documentary, appropriately titled Bible Quiz, which screens today - for free - at 1 p.m. inside the Washington State History Museum Auditorium. This documentary was funded in part through the Tacoma Arts Commission's Art Projects funding program.

2. You might think high school marching bands, a slew of corvettes, U.S. Navy Sea Cadets, The Nutcracker on wheels and a mass of choir singers converging on the streets of Olympia would result in an orgy of debauchery not fit for print. But you might just have a twisted mind. The annual Olympia Holiday Parade is a family-oriented event sandwiched between a day of downtown Olympia free horse-drawn wagon rides with Mrs. Claus and free electric trolley rides (noon) and the 4:30 p.m. holiday tree lighting in Sylvester Park.

3. As you know the Franciscan Polar Plaza outdoor ice skating rink is open to those who want to travel in circles from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. What you might not know is today from 2-4 p.m. the Seattle Thunderbirds and its mascot Cool Bird will be on the ice too.

4. The Weekly Volcano is in denial, but the signs are hard to ignore. Shops are draped in red and green; cocktail parties fill my calendar, and we can't button our skinny jeans anymore. Yep, it's the holiday season. As they say, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, which is why we'll be singing at the top of our lungs at the Sing-A-Long Sound of Music at 5 p.m. inside The Washington Center. It's a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious full-screen Technicolor, complete with subtitles. Nice.

This show is not happening. We apologize. 5. Guitarist Dave Takata might have left sludge-metal band Mahnhammer but he'll be at The New Frontier Lounge tonight when his other two bands Furry Buddies and Argonaut join Mahnhammer at 9 p.m. to rock in a new week.
