Weekly Rochester Events #421: Hamilton Lets In to Melville
Thursday, February 1, 2007
Although I had a relatively busy week with stuff, I only have a couple things to mention.
Saturday I went with Ali to go sledding at Ellison Park (Blossom Rd. at Landing Rd.) with her relatives. It was a blast. I was a bit worried I'd screw up my back again but I kept going again and again. I avoided the jump that Rich made, but I did spend some time snapping bizarre pictures of kids in mid-air on it. Later that evening we went to the The Granger Homestead and Carriage Museum (295 N. Main St., Canandaigua) for a Wine Gala — we got to try a bunch of wines and most of them were pretty good. After that we drove straight to The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) to meet with Stacie and her new guy and to check out the show. I pretty much skipped Margaret Explosion — I've got nothing against them, but I was just in the mood for something more power-rock-like than pleasant-jazz-like. The Cheetah Whores were quite good ... a relatively new band that needs to gel fully, but otherwise their punch-rock roots showed through. We also stayed for the last show of The Earl Cram Revue — I still liked them but I was getting tired fast after a long day.
I guess the only other thing to mention is on Monday — I got to The Little (240 East Ave.) to see the Emerging Filmmakers Series. Among the films this time, I particularly liked Ali Vatansever's Modern Art in which he takes four well-known modern-art paintings and reinterprets them as film vignettes. I liked the structure of the film — that he went through all the vignettes then came back to show the source paintings and their similarities and differences. I also liked Words on the Wind: Volume I by Thom Marini, and Lou Angora. Native American Ponca poet Sa Su Weh, a.k.a. Dan Jones provides the words of voice-overs on relatedly beautiful imagery. At times it dipped into silly inspirational movie crap, but for the most part, the words and images were powerful and evocative.

About the title ... The Hamilton Inlet was discovered 421 years ago in 1586 and connects with Lake Melville (53°40' N 59°40' W, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada)
This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do.
Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat."
Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed.
Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events.
I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity.
Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.)
It's also not to be confused with
or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
