JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #117: It Looks Like a Baby Psychiatrist

Hey, it really pays to surf around on Freetime. I won Amerks ticket vouchers the other week. I don't know exactly when I'll ever use themm, but hey, winning is winning, right?

Anyway, I completely forgot about Daylight Saving Time last weekend. Well, at least to mention it to you all. But I got it in the database now so you'll never ever ever forget again.

Update: Just this morning they announced that Rochester's new area code will be 585, which of course is KUL (or LUK, JUL, 5UK, etc.) while dumb old 716 will be damned to the hellish Buffalo area. Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Yates, Livingston, Allegany and Steuben counties will get the 585 code. The new area code will be phased in during the next 2 years.

In other unrelated verbiage, I got to thinking abut the Heimlich maneuver. I mean, why isn't it called the Heimlich method? Or process, or technique ... maneuver sounds more military than anything, kinda like that Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) Maneuver they talk about on those car chase reality TV shows all the time. Maybe they can stop a suspect with the Heimlich maneuver.

  1. Get behind the suspect's vehicle and locate the air filter with your hand.
  2. Move your hand across the intake manifold above the fuel injectors and make a fist.
  3. Keep the thumb side of your fist on the suspect vehicle's air intake.
  4. Place your other hand over your fist and press into the air intake with a quick upward thrust until the manifold is crushed. Adjust the force of your thrust to the vehicle's physique. A 1975 Chevy Nova needs several tons of force while a 1997 Geo Metro LSI would need only several ounces.
  5. Have someone call 911 so you can be taken to the hospital to reconstruct your crushed thumbs and fist and rehabilitate your dislocated shoulders.

  • Along Came a Spider - Morgan Freeman reprises his role from Kiss The Girls in this absurdly confusing and much less rewarding sequel. At least that's what I heard.
  • Blow - Ah yes, the '70's ... when you asked for coke, you got coke. And this is the story of the miraculous journey it would make from Columbia to the infarcted muscles of a silent heart.
  • Just Visiting - A couple knights from the ... uhh ... days when knights were big are thrown into the future to -- get this -- year 2001! How amazing: that's this very year!
  • Pokemon 3 - Even more powerful than before blah blah blah.

Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave) will be Liquid starting around 10:30.

This weekend the lease is up for ... no no no. That just is way too obvious. I can't do it. Nonetheless, this is the last weekend for Rent at the Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.) Shows are at 8 tonight and tomorrow, 2 and 8 on Saturday, and 2 and 7 on Sunday.

Just to fill in the day a bit, remember that the nifty Karaoke with Sugar Bear will be at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) tonight starting around 10:30. If you haven't noticed, Sugar Bear is double booked all over the place. That's because Meghan of White Cotton Panties fame is filling in as "Sugar Bee-otch" [does anyone know how to spell that for real?] in a number of his gigs, and I believe this is one of them.

  • SPICY ESCALAR ROLL - consisting of escalar, smelt roe, scallions and hot chili oil.
