JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #113: British Christmas

Boy did I screw up this past couple weeks. Nobody seemed to notice, but all the MapsOnUs links were completely broken. If you could get them to work at all, you'd get plopped to the right place but the only thing marked on the map would be Acme Bar & Pizza (495 Monroe Ave.) Basically the format got screwed up (because I'm using the database and messed that up) and you'd go to a default page and have to enter an address. Doh!

I've been sick. Last week I got sick over the weekend and it all spiked around Tuesday ... In fact, I went to work for all of two hours then headed home and proceeded to have a fever around 101 (Fahrenheit, silly). From there I would feel a little better, and just feel a little stuffed up, go out, and feel like crap the next day. I eventually stopped going out thinking I would get better. Well, it's been almost two weeks and now I had a plugged ear. Woo hoo.

Of course, I'm glad it's my ear and not my heart like Vice President Dick Cheney. I was really worried there ... I mean, it would be cruel to make jokes if he died, but now that he's apparently alright for a while he's fair game. I was really worried about the V. P. -- I mean, his body houses both the heart and brain of the Bush Administration. That was way too close.

In other news to make you all feel jealous, we had another smokeout at work on Friday. It was pretty much a throw-away day as we dined on smoked beef tenderloin, smoked salmon, and smoked ham.

Oh, and as for the Lone Gunmen ... well, it was alright. I'm sure all you other bit wranglers out there were cringing at some of the technobabble they were spouting, but in all it was alright. Hopefully it'll be better this week (and people will generally be healthy enough to watch it.)

For your multimedia extravaganza this week, check out the 7 megabyte QuickTime Storm of the Millennium.

  • Marvel at over 3 days of video crammed into 6 minutes!
  • Watch your eyes deceive you as the world whips by at over 700 times normal speed!
  • See just how much faster a snowblower is over shoveling!
  • Catch the sidewalk snowplows fly by in the blink of an eye!
Amaze your friends! They won't believe how cool you are -- just ask them!

Oh yeah ... according to WBER, the A Perfect Circle show with Snake River Conspiracy at The Burt Flickinger Athletic Center at Erie Community College (Swan St. and Elm St.) is actually on March 12. If you have tickets for the 13th, they will be honored on the 12th.

  • Fifteen Minutes - A homocide detective and fire marshall team up to solve a crime up to six times faster than normal.
  • Get Over It - A guy breaks up with a long time girlfriend only to try to get over her by rolling his tongue out for Kirsten Dunst.
  • Company Man - A '60's high school teacher becomes an international spy in a plot to overthow Fidel Castro. I think this plot has been done twenty ways 'til Tuesday, but the exact plot doesn't seem to have been done until now.
  • When Brendan Met Trudy - Brendan's a teacher. Trudy's a thief. Comedy ensues.
  • Simon Magus - Simon is an outcast from his Jewish faith because -- duh -- the devil talks to him and he can curse crops.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave) will be the relatively unknown Six Spice Fingers starting around 10:30.

Over at the semi-hostile The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) will host Mercury Radio Theatre, Section 8 and Up From Crash starting around 10:30.

By my guess, we've all missed it: there are no Salsa Lessons at Tapas One Seventy Seven (177 Saint Paul St.) tonight.

  • HELLFIRE ROLL - consisting of tempura crawdaddies, hot sauce, and topped with Dinosaur BBQ sauce

Checked personally by Jayce O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Checked personally by Jayce The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Carnival of Souls starting at 8. It's $8 for the public and $6 for members and they won't be accepting the Take 10 passes. Why? It's a lousy movie, right? Well, the Mike Nelson (of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame) will be there to present the movie and (in part) to plug his book Movie Megacheese and signing it afterward.

Tonight at Milestones (170 East Ave) is Mindstrap, Riff Monsters and Rist Rocket. So it's not your favorite venue or bands, at least it's ... uhh ... ok, so I haven't seen any of the bands in a long time. Mark from Rist Rocket said they've gotten better since last year.

Edge of Jupiter will be at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave) tonight starting around 10:30.

The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) is having a two-fer show today. First, starting at 3pm is Dela Hoya, Buried Inside, The Exam, The Kwak Iutl, and Maseo Ruz. Much later at 9 (Bug-time ... a.k.a. 9:30 or 10) is The Single Whips (whom I missed the other week) The Thundergods, and The Baseball Furries.

Ok, so it was held over, but I mean it this time: this is the very last performance of The Laramie Project at the Shipping Dock Theater (151 St. Paul St.) today at 3.

Glass Box:
  • Futurama : Luck of the Fryrish - Fry searches the ruins of New York for a seven-leaf clover he remembers from his past.
  • ing of the Hill : Luanne Virgin 2.0 - Hank and Peggy smile on Luanne's newfound chastity because they abstained from premarital sex -- with each other.
  • Simpsons : Bye Bye Nerdy - Lisa tries to figure out why the new girl picks on smart children; Homer baby-proofs the house for Maggie.
  • Malcolm in the Middle : Tutoring Reese - Malcolm and the Krelboynes help Reese cheat on a test, but the teacher flunks him without even reading the exam.
  • Lone Gunmen : Bond, Jimmy Bond - While investigating the murder of a computer hacker, the guys bag a benefactor named Jimmy Bond who is willing to bankroll their strapped operation.


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

Let's imagine for a moment the weather is nice today ... ha ha ... no, really ... Now consider Wine and Food Pairing at Casa Larga Vineyards (Turk Hill Road, 223-4210) from 7 to 9. Heck, it's something to do.

As of a few weeks ago, Java's (16 Gibb Street) still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.

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