JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #115. Charlotte News: Seattle Wired

I don't have anything really interesting to say this week. I've got you all built up and stuff to expect some wildly entertaining monolog but not this time. No sir-ee.

Ok, except maybe for boring medical stuff. I got done with my antibiotics last week and felt even better, but then my body said, "Hey, let's rip the heck out of our shoulder in the middle of the night for no reason whatsoever." So I woke up and my shoulder hurt like hell. It wasn't until Sunday that I could put a coat on properly or lift my arm past horizontal. Much fun indeed.

Ok, except for the exciting things coming up. There's Wayne Brady on Friday at St. John Fisher with his comedy improv show. On Sunday is The Frogs which are a wacky band indeed. Listen to some clips from Amazon onThe Frogspage there. Next Thursday is Nuts and Bolts improv show once again.

  • Say It Isn't So! -A guy meets the love of his life but thinks she is his sister. Comedy ensues.
  • Heartbreakers -A woman marries rich men then her daughter seduces them and they make off with the cash.
  • The Brothers -A guy is getting married so he and three friends talk about women and stuff.
  • Too Much Sleep -Keywords: security guard, beautiful girl, lost gun, local expert in the criminal underground. Got it? Neither do I, nor do I get why IMDbsays it was made in 1997 but not released until now.

Checked personally by JayceThe Dryden TheateratGeorge Eastman House(900 East Ave.)will be showingThe Idiots starting at 8.This is a Danish film subtitled in English (conveniently enough for most of us) which documents "spassing" which is apparently the act of acting like you've got mental disabilities in a public place for your own amusement.

Where has that finger been?

In a puppet.
In an orifice.
In a Doberman.
Hanging off the end of your hand.
Chillin' on one of those little skateboards.
Right next to talc, next to latex, next to Vaseline, etc.
Relieving itching.
