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...
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 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.
- 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.
Shipping Dock Theatre
(151 St. Paul St.)
will be performing
The Santaland Diaries,
a supposedly extremely funny one-man show about an elf working at Macy's. Tickets are $18 and tonight is the last show starting at 7:30.
For a little modern rock cover action, check out
way up at
Slammer's Bar and Grill
(4650 Dewey Ave.)
probably starting around 9:30.
In case you're shut in tonight (or tomorrow), check out
I'm going to make a drug with my mind
on cable public access (channel 15 on Time Warner) at 11:30 p.m. featuring
Pisspot the Bunny
interviewing local and out-of-town bands.
(875 Monroe Ave.)
tonight is the former
Colorblind James Experience
and groove-rock from Syracuse (according to Ned Pepper's Chris) or Lake Placid (according to
starting around 10:30.
There's apparently a
Spoken Word Open Mic Poetry Night
Pythodd Jazz Room at the Heritage House
(130 Spring St.)
from around 6 to around 10. It used to be on Thursdays but I guess they moved it.
As of a few months ago,
(16 Gibb Street)
still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.
Tonight from 8 to 10 is an
Open-Mic Comedy Night
(389 Gregory St.)
While once it was a workshop type of environment, it's now more-or-less a regular open mic ... by default it's still a place to try out new stuff.
