PRELUDE TO THE APOCALYPSE, Part 3 (The Lord of Watsu)

The sun has set. Tony and Evo head east from the tiny town of Owl to discover the exclusive communities of Palm Springs are on fire. Familes huddle on their lawns as looters ransack their homes. Date palms become fiery torches that light Tony's way through a maze of burning mansions, street hustlers, and Psytrance parties. Tony buys an emerald necklace that once belonged to PARIS HILTON but Evo refuses to wear it. They reach the Palms to Pines Highway, which snakes into the high desert and arrive at Nirvana, a self-sufficient compound hidden at the base of Sheep Mountain. It's a great time-out for our Dynamic Duo as they rest in a geodesic dome and consider staying long enough for Evo to give birth to their first child.

NIRVANA is a sprawling masterpiece that is self-contained, complete with fishponds filled with salmon & trout, vegan gardens, orange & avocado groves, mountain streams, goats, chickens, and a golden retriever named Cosmo. There's even contact with the outside world via ham radio. But will the apparently 'safe' lifestyle in a dangerous world last?
