JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #107: Brave New Huxley

Oh boy. Let me just say that George W. isn't winning any points with me by his first action in office... I mean, come on, an[other] "Education President" who cuts federal funding to international organizations that perform abortions? So if you're 17 and pregnant and want to know what your options are, you should probably go somewhere other than a federally supported pregnancy clinic because they won't honestly discuss your options. Yes, abortion is an option -- by no means a first option or a particularly appealing option -- but an option nonetheless. One that should be discussed openly and honestly and with attention paid to the repercussions of such an action. Apparently George W. thinks you should check with Doctor Nick in some back alley, or maybe your brother's ex-girlfriend's sister. Thanks a lot, Mr. President.

Sorry.

In less politicized news, I went to see the Carbon Records CDR.Show at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) last week. It was pretty cool although the Bug Jar is not a place to just hang out. Anyway, I noticed this guy who seemed to be associated with the show in some way who and I was thinking, "I know him from somewhere." I finally placed him and stopped him to say hi. Joe (pictured with the guitar and violin bow) and I lived on the same floor during my first quarter at RIT. He was also among the bands on the 1992 RIoT Bands tape and started a band called Hilkka recently with some friends. I worked with his co-workers while I was at West Group.

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

Inappropriate as it may be, Ned Pepper will be at Border's Books and Music (Victor, N.Y.) at 7.

Checked personally by Jayce Then they haul their collective butt over to Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) to open for Plastic Nebraska starting around 10:30. Saturdays are cover charge night, so keep that in mind. These folks are supposed to be pretty good.
Updated 2001-Jan-25: Plastic Nebraska cancelled because their drummer cut his hand at work on Monday so Ned Pepper has stepped up to be the headlining act with an as-yet-unknown opening act.

Checked personally by Jayce Meanwhile, Christian is hosting the Festival of Music That is not Wimpy with Powered by Satan, Luann Arena from White Cotton Panties, Rick Snell, Ian Downey, and Sir Real at Christian's Cafe in Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Checked personally by Jayce The good cover band Better Days will be at Millennium (2235 Empire Blvd.)

As an alternative, the relatively anti-social The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) has Hellen Killer with The Priests, The Veins and The Purrs.

Also, the jazz fusion band MBF-5 will be at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) tonight starting around 10.

Checked personally by Jayce Open Jam at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) Very open. Sometimes it's so open, nobody plays at all.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Hearts of Darkness which is a documentary exploring the turbulent shooting of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypsse Now.

I haven't been there since November, but I think Java's (16 Gibb Street) still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.

Link of the Week:
Earliest Known Uses of Some of the Words of Mathematics - Now I'm just getting obtuse, but I did need to find information on the term "grad" which is an angular measure such that the right angle consists of 100 divisions (i.e. 360 degrees is 400 grads.) The document looks well researched and could prove useful to some of you in a somewhat bizarre set of circumstances. Jim Miller's other web pages include a bunch of math-related history.
