The ReSassy Project
by Jason Olshefsky at 8:51 am (add a comment)

A few weeks ago I announced that I was going to take my Civic apart and sell the pieces. Well, this weekend I got the website up and running and decided to call the project ReSassy which construes the goal of reusing, repurposing, and recycling as much as possible. Plus it fits my criterion of "specifically avoiding things that mention 'Honda' or 'Civic' in the title".

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 Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator. While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, June 18, 2009 (Thu, Jun 18, 2009, 6/18/2009, or 6/18/09) Friday, June 19, 2009 (Fri, Jun 19, 2009, 6/19/2009, or 6/19/09) Saturday, June 20, 2009 (Sat, Jun 20, 2009, 6/20/2009, or 6/20/09) Sunday, June 21, 2009 (Sun, Jun 21, 2009, 6/21/2009, or 6/21/09) Monday, June 22, 2009 (Mon, Jun 22, 2009, 6/22/2009, or 6/22/09) Tuesday, June 23, 2009 (Tue, Jun 23, 2009, 6/23/2009, or 6/23/09) and Wednesday, June 24, 2009 (Wed, Jun 24, 2009, 6/24/2009, or 6/24/09).


JayceLand Pick indicates an event that's a preferred pick of the day ... probably something worth checking out.

Top Pick indicates a "guaranteed" best bet for the particular genre of the indicated event.
