JayceLand's Weekly Rochester Events #206: Carnot's Car Not 100% Efficient

Last week was really weird because on both Thursday and Saturday, there was no music at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) On Thursday night I went to Krush Bar and Grill (198 N. Winton Rd.) I met some nice people and had a really good time. I played pool mostly and noticed that pretty much all the women were very pretty. Most of them were dating and smoked (my own pet peeve) but they all seemed to be pretty much not-mean. I talked with the bartender a little about biking for a bit before I left. I ended up staying until close, and since I biked out there, got home around 3, got to bed around 3:20, then got up at 5:20 to go to work.

I was thinking the other day (despite being about a week late) about what's wrong with what Trent Lott said on December 5? Well, first off, he said, "I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him--and if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years either." The state was Missippi, the year was 1948, Strom Thurmond was running on the pro-segregationist Dixiecrat ticket, and Trent Lott was 7 years old at the time. Anyway, my take on it is that the biggest problem is that he seems to have forgotten the atrocities of racial policy and segregation. I mean, come on ... it's like forgetting the holocaust--unless, of course, you really just couldn't care less. Hmmm...

For more liberal crap, if you're interested in petitioning the government (particularly the President) to let them (him) know that you really don't approve of jumping in headfirst into war with Iraq, check out =http://www.moveon.org/winwithoutwar/ and http://www.votenowar.org.

Just so you know I'm not losing my touch, I thought I'd mention that my sump pump died (almost) and I had to buy a new one. It only took about a half hour to put in, thanks to the SawzAll. Also, I should probably get my drain snaked by Roto Rooter or something like that because it's ... uhh ... not working right.

  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - The last movie really concluded the whole story, but I guess Hollywood always attempts to profit from these kinds of things.
  • Antwone Fisher - An angry sailor chats with a shrink to figure out why he's angry.
  • Gangs of New York - Back in olden times, there were gangs in New York City who treated eachother meanly.
  • Two Weeks Notice - That's it, I quit.
  • The Wild Thornberrys Movie - Animated animal experts do stuff on screen. I guess the girl gets a condition where she can talk to animals, but since you know that, she can't anymore.
  • Rabbit-Proof Fence (at The Little) - Some girls in the early 20th century escape from the detainment camp they are living to escape to their mothers. The country? The oppressed people?: Australian aborigines.
