JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #96: Welcome Utah

I just couldn't do it. I was afraid of George W.'s chances of getting into office, so I voted for Buchanan instead. Ha ha, just kidding -- I had you going there for a second, though, eh? No? Anyway, at least I voted Gore/Lieberman on the Liberal ticket -- that's just as good as going Green to fight the two-party monopoly, right? No? Dang.

I admit it. I am a Nader Traitor.

Anyway, I think Al is smart, socially liberal, and most of all, articulate. That last point got me thinking: think of George W. in an important meeting mixing up words like he does: "pathetic" instead of "prophetic," "fucking asshole" instead of "valuable asset," "bologna sandwich" instead of "dwarf policeman." Oh the horror. Just remember that Reverend William Spooner never started a war as President of the United States (for several reasons).

Anyway, here's the outcome of the elections two days ago. I'll update it with the final results when they come in.

Voted Down:: Proposal Number One - A Proposition Tranportation Infrastructure Bond Act of 2000

Shall chapter 58 of the laws of 2000, known as The Transportation Infrastructure Bond Act of 2000, authorizing the creation of state debt in the amount up to three billion eight hundred million dollars ($3,800,000,000) to provide moneys for the improvement, enhancement, preservation and restoration of the quality of the state's transportation infrastructure, including the state's highways, bridges, canals, ports, airports, rail and transit systems, be approved?

  • Little Nicky - Adam Sandler plays the son of the devil (in the movie) who is to inherit hell. Harvey Kytel is satan and the movie has talking dog, so how can you go wrong?
  • Men of Honor - This is a biographical account of Carl Brashea who was the first black man to be a U.S. Navy diver. From the reviews I've read, it's overly easy to hate the one-dimensionally racist characters.
  • Red Planet - Astronauts head to Mars to start a colony there, but find it is already controlled by a Communist regime.
  • Wonder Boys - I don't know what the heck gibberish I wrote back in February, but this is a re-release of that to try and get awards. It's supposed to be pretty good.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have Build starting around 10:30-ish. I saw them play acoustic in October at The Old Toad and they were very good. The Krown should be a perfect venue for them, assuming they get a decent crowd.

Tonight at Milestones (170 East Ave.) is Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest starting around 10:00-ish with with November Thread versus Redlight District.

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.) This week's specials, straight from the mailing list's mouth are:
  • Smokey Mountain Roll - consisting of scallops, Japanese mayo and HOT SAUCE
  • Tofu et tu Brutè - consisting of spicy tuna, seaweed salad and tofu pocket
  • Chele Roll - consisting of squid, uni and broccoli sprouts (yes, they are really sprouts, [Tom says he] checked)

As you heard several times in past weeks, They Might Be Giants will be at the Alexandra Palestra in the Goergen Athletic Center at University of Rochester (River Campus Map.) If you don't have tickets, check out University of Rochester common market, Record Archive (1394 Mount Hope Ave.) Lakeshore Record Exchange (370 Park Ave.) or Tickets.com.

I wasn't excited enough to get tickets, so I'll probably check out Three Flights Up at their favorite venue Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) starting around 10.

The preview of Convenience continues through the weekend at 6:30 and 10 tonight; other times throughout the weekend at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.)

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Over at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Buzzo All-Stars again this weekend for $2 at the door starting around 10:30.

The damn-near best bet, though is Krypton-88 with the now mostly-male-and-mostly-all-new White Cotton Panties at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) starting around 10 or 11.

Meanwhile, The Grinders' CD Release Party is at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) along with The Priests and The Quitters.

Anita's friend's band, Ten Typing Monkeys will be way up at Annie Murphy's Fiddlers Green (4653 Lake Ave.) tonight, probably starting around 9.

Trivia Quiz continues at The Old Toad (277 Alexander St.)

Of interest is "Rock" with Tom Mule (or Mulé, depending if that's a typo in Freetime) at Margarita's (1226 Fairport Rd.)

Also, there is a Public Informational Meeting in the Gleason Auditorium at The Bausch & Lomb Public Library (115 South Ave.) to discuss proposals for the inner loop. I don't know if you need an invitation like I have, but heck, now you know. It runs from 7 to 9.

U. S. Department of Energy Fuel Economy Guide - While I'm still on the fuel economy kick, here's the DoE's site for a bunch of new cars. If only they'd switch to fuel per mile instead of mile per fuel ... Likewise, you can look up Automotive Emission Information from the EPA site, a ranking that is just as valuable when car shopping.
