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".
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Umberto D. starting at 8 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, it "tells the story of a retired bureaucrat who finds himself broke and homeless on the heartless streets of Rome with his little dog, Flike."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Far Country starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House calendar: "after killing a man for stealing his cattle, James Stewart takes his herd to Alaska with the law on his tail. With the help of Walter Brennan, Stewart faces off in a mining town against a powerful but evil judge (John McIntire). The Far Country—with its vengeful, conflicted hero, violent action, and beautiful but rugged landscapes—is very much of a piece with the other Western collaborations between director Mann and Stewart."

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.
