JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #197: Montpelier ... Capital.

Man, this was a tough update this week. There's a whole bunch of new bands that I had to hunt around the WWW to find, only to discover that they had the same name as several other bands, none of whom seemed to be the right ones. Just a note: if you pick a band name these days, make it a unique word. Please!

What else ... I had this really weird dream that didn't make any sense:

I was at what appeared to be Jan and Shannon's house for what appeared to be Thanksgiving. There were a bunch of people there but I recognized this black-haired guy. Everyone watched videos and stuff, including a show that changes channels that allows you to make a new show out of other shows.

There was also a plane crash. It was a big plane ... white with a couple orange stripes. It was trying to land and we commented that it was too low. We watched as it tried to climb but then the front end broke off and flipped up. The back end got ahead of the front and crashed into the ground, then the nose went nose-first into the back section. It was on the slope of a hill at dusk.

There was also a helicopter that landed in the back lot but we weren't very interested. The place looked like an apartment complex with a bunch of different buildings. The one that Jan and Shannon were living was toward a corner near the parking lot.

See?

Unfortunately, my real-life life isn't nearly that interesting. Saturday was probably the activity highlight of the week and included a trip to O'Bagelo's (165 State Street) followed by working on patching the rust on my car and installing grease fittings on the suspension bushings so I could grease them so they won't squeak so much. In the midst of that was a trip to the auto parts store to buy more 1/4"-28 taps to finish the job ... grumble, grumble ... and a little sleep then drinking and seeing bands at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) and The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) Nothing much spectacular although I thought that Beligerants and Edge of JupiterGarageBand link were both really good, tempered with alcohol, so probably more like pretty good.

Maybe I'll party more this week.

  • Abandon - Yeah ... get out of town for two years then come back and "haunt" your ex-girlfriend while she's under pressure in college ... hmmm ... sounds like a great idea ... an original idea. [Sorry, inside joke...]
  • Formula 51 - Dude, if you thought Formula 44M was good shit, you gotta try Formula 51!
  • The Ring - Apparently, bootleg copies of the fan-created "Beowulf: Robocop III" and every viewer killed themselves.

Updated: Tonight at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is either the decent modern rock band Veluxe or the fun punk-rock band The Flour City KnuckleheadsGarageBand link or possibly both starting around 10:30.
