JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #105: Oliver's Trimmer Patent Two

For Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I have a little activity for you all. Review Dr. King's speeches through the links to the Afro-American Almanac in the survey to the right and pick what you feel is his most inspirational work. Oh, and don't just pick "I Have a Dream" because that's the only one you know!

AdWords example advertisement In the past week I set up an actual paid advertisement for this page through Google's AdWords. Basically, if you go to Google and search for stuff relating to Rochester, you might see the little banner-like thingy such as the one to the right. I put in $30 for 2,000 impressions and weeded down the keywords so I only get a few per day. Hopefully, though, I'll be hitting the people who could most use the page. Because I did so, I put a "Related Links" section in the right column to other useful event-related sites.

And finally, the least substantial footnote of all: I didn't even notice, but last week's update was #104 on 1/04. Woo hoo. That won't happen again until #324 on March 24, 2005 (don't ask).

No, wait, I have an even less substantial footnote. I saw the advertisement you see to the right in Freetime Magazine for The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) and thought it was funny enough to include here.

  • Antitrust - The ficticious Gilbert Bates, III owns a software company that is threatened by anti-trust litigation. Ok, so the guy is really called Gary Winston, but who's kidding who, eh?
  • Thirteen Days - Angered by the inappropriate use of their cigars, Cuba decides to fight back.
  • Double Take - Kate and Allison are a couple twins from Des Moines ... er ... New York City. Comedy ensues.
  • Save the Last Dance - Even though white men can't jump, one white woman can dance. Now you only need nine more things to hate about her.
  • Kids World - A boy wishes that a movie be created that kids will love but will make parents disappear.
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou? - George Clooney reprises his role from South Park as he escapes from the straight-laced world of prison life in the 1920's to find dam treasure.

Checked personally by Jayce 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:
  • SPARKY Roll consisting of tempura shrimp, hot sauce, honey mustard with eel sauce, drizzled on top...
  • PHAT TUESDAY Roll consisting of crawdads, hot sauce, avocado with garlic ...
  • HAMACHI MACHI Roll ...consisting of yellow tail, scallions and lemon (What, no hot sauce on this one?)...


Definition of juxtaposition: Ruby Shooz at the brand new Velocity Nightclub (123 Liberty Pole Way, which used to be Club Marcella). It would be kinda nifty if they did the oldies thing regularly, but it would really tear at the fiber of all that is real and good.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing the "best" of their Movies on a Shoestring, an independent film festival in the spring.

I have this feeling this week's Downtown Alive at Five at The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) will be the place to be. If I need a fallback option *sigh* I might just go.

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

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

Checked personally by Jayce The Grinders with Dead Blue Hand will be at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) starting around 10:30. There's a $2 cover. I'm betting this will be a really good show.

Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) has Butterscotch with South Central starting around 10. I seem to remember South Central as being pretty good.

Checked personally by Jayce Three Flights Up will be at their favorite venue, Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) I missed them just before New Year's because I was sick with the flu.

Among many good bets tonight is the really good Astronomical Unit at Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave) tonight. I've never even been there (unless I did at 3 a.m. when I was really drunk and just didn't remember) so I don't know how when they start.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) Check out some singers, then head downstairs and regain your hearing.

Iconoscopic Perception:
  • Futurama : The Deep South - When the ship sinks during a fishing trip, leaking caffeine spawns a civilization of mermaids and mermen.
  • King of the Hill : The Man Who Shot Cane Skretteburg - Hank challenges the members of a loud neighborhood garage band to a game of paintball.
  • Simpsons : Pokey Mom - A softhearted Marge invites a recent parolee to move into the Simpson household.
  • Malcolm in the Middle : Krelboyne Girl - When a girl develops a crush on Malcolm, he reciprocates by throwing a brick through her window.
